  1. Thanks Alex. Having the ability to affect personality change makes all the difference to me.
  2. For me, FMT18 Switch would have been great if there had been some control over the Tutoring of youngsters, and to a lesser extent, dedicated youth training. My save fizzled out after 20 months due to a massive lack of tutoring, so before I buy 19 I need to know if these areas of the game have been improved. Any info on how Tutoring and Youth Training are handled in FM Touch 2019 Switch would be much appreciated. Thanks
  3. When I set "Allow rest day before or after match", does it: 1. Also apply to the ReservesX Sorted. 2. Apply to: a) the whole squad, or b) just those who played/are selected to play? Also, when selecting "Rest All Players" on the calendar, who exactly gets rested, and for how long? (or does clicking on "Rest All Players" give you further options? haven't tried it in case it does something I don't want) Thanks in advance.
  4. I used to think I knew this, but now I'm not sure. The reason: I have Amadou Diawara, just turned 21, with 3 star CA and 4 star PA with the fourth yellow star greyed out. He has been at the club for 15 months and has barely improved since joining aged 19.This greyed out yellow star has been there since the scout report (although he was rated much higher), so I naturally assumed it was due to uncertainty on the scout's part, and subsequently the coach's. Surely by now the coach should have a clearer idea of his potential, given how long he's been here, and the fact his CA has reached the 3 soli
  5. Would he know he's retiring even though there has been no mention of it whatsoever in the game? As for the bug situation, it is late in the day, and I thought that would probably be the case. I'd feel a lot better knowing there was definitely going to be a Switch release of FM19 (with more tutoring ;)) Thanks for the reply. xxx
  6. When a player approaches me for an enhanced contract, I am given the option to point out he has ages left on his existing contract, and a new one won't be forthcoming. But when an agent tries the same thing my only option is to walk away - I haven't done that yet, but I'm guessing it won't improve our relationship. Just walking away is most unsatisfactory. And why are players even approaching me for improved contracts when they have agents? Also, are the massively inflated transfer fees due to the very small database available in this version? I've looked around, and players o
  7. I haven't been clear why the contract offer is greyed out because that's what I came here to find out! My DoF has done nothing - see the title of the thread. It was greyed out when I first went to offer him a new, player contract and has remained that way for 4 in game months. The only contract I was able to see when I clicked on 'contract offer', on the left side bar, was for Ass. Manager, but it was greyed out because Milner felt he wasn't experienced enough to become my Ass. Manager (check his agent's statement). I don't want Milner to be my Ass. Man. Why is there an Ass. Man Contract
  8. As the title really.The reason I'm asking is something (a bug?) is locking me out of offering James Milner a new, player contract. Under 'Current Offer', there is a greyed out contract for Assistant Manager, with a statement from his agent, "My client isn't currently interested in entering into contract negotiations with your club. Liverpool's James Milner has revealed that he is reluctant to join Liverpool as he feels the standard may be too high for this stage of his career." He has staff attributes, but there has been no mention of him retiring at all. Under 'Contract Offer' I can look
  9. Of course, thanks. I got one in my first youth intake 5* with 12 for Free Kicks
  10. Is there a way to see a GK's Technical Attributes on the Switch, other than hoping your HoYD provides a Training Report? I can't see anything obvious on the player's profile page. Thanks.
  11. Less "Organic" Tutoring. My original wish was just to know that tutoring was taking place, now I'd like a simplified way of initiating tutoring myself (think FM10ish), OR more, "more organic" tutoring with a notice that tutoring is taking place. There's not nearly enough tutoring for me. 15 months into a save and only 5 tutoring sessions done, involving only 3 youngsters and 3 tutors. My Captain, Jordan Henderson (Professional, Determination 18) hasn't tutored anyone. Milner (VC) & Lallana (both Professional with 17 Determination) haven't tutored anyone. Is this working as i
  12. Dear SI, Shortly after recovering from injury, the status icon "Slt" appeared next to Sadio Mane, he "wants a chance in the first team". His status is first team, but due to his 13.8 Stamina, and rain at almost every match (seriously), he's played more than every other game when fit. So, after calling him an idiot, I carried on playing him whenever he's fit and has anything less that "High" injury risk. Out of the blue there's a news item - he's unhappy, not had enough first team football, gone public blah.. - right, seven options and only one that remotely makes sense "I'm prepared
  13. First Team, Reserves, Youth - which players make up the club's "Squad Personality"? Also does their personality contribute if they are away from the club on loan? I've searched and found only guesses, but nothing official. Some solid info would be much appreciated.
  14. Yeah, it does. Sorry about that, in an attempt to keep my post short, and require no reply, I neglected to mention that I was just wondering if the AI would take advantage of this bug.
