  1. My youth intake has been pretty miserable the last seasons even though I have state of the art facilities and exceptional junior coaching and youth recruitment at Nottingham Forrest. I would imagine that Mauro is up for the job as he has good stats and is professional. Can he really be part of the problem and should I sign Garrone instead and let him have a chance? Or is it just bad luck getting bad youth intakes for a couple of years even if you have everything in place?
  2. The decline you see from the screenshots was when he was already at the club, so the scouts before he was bought and also the coaches (screenshots) agreed he was world class. This all happened within 3 months. His attributes havent changed. I was wondering if it could be something to do with adaptability and it might bounce back? He speaks fluent English though. His performances equal that of an average player at the moment so the current evaluation seems correct. Before he was bought he was on the fringes of the Brazilian national team with 2 goals in 3 matches so he was pretty good
  3. Has anybody experienced this kind of decline for a new signing? Both my scouts before and also the coaches after he arrived, labelled him a world class player. I really though he was going to be the player bringing us to the next level, but six months in he is now competing to be on the bench.
  4. Better take up those yoga classes if you want to succeed in the next version of FM. :-)
  5. There really is some sort of "determination bug" in this game. Starting a game with team leaders who have low determination can really turn into a vicious circle. No matter how high determination your new signings have they will be influenced by the team leaders and gradually decline before they finally climb up the hierarchy themselves. By the time they themselves have taken over and become team leaders they will have declined in determination to the level where they now are influencing your new signings or youth players negatively who then start to drop in determination. For 4 seasons at For
  6. Do tactics still get "hacked" if you only use the same formation all the time? Meaning the AI will judge that your tactic has been "read" by the opposition and render it pretty much useless. Doesnt happen to AI teams of course who can play the same formation for decades.
  7. During Covid I bought FM for the first time in 15 years and as a previous addict I was really looking forward to spend time on my guilty pleasure. I am playing Nottingham Forrest and won in the playoffs to get promoted first year. Second year I finished 7th in the Premiership and miraculously won the Carabao Cup . Now in my third season I am maybe going to get a spot in the Europa League. How did I do it? I have no clue as the results seem to come at random. What is even more serious.... I actually didnt have fun. I am so frustrated playing this game that I actually have to remind myself that
  8. In my saved game I was thinking of loaning him at Nottingham Forrest, but at 32 he was rated as an average Championship player by my scouts. Seemed quite weird as he was still dominating and playing extremely well for Wales and had also put in a handful of very good performances for Real Madrid the first part of 21/22 season. Couldn't take the risk though as 25% of his salary was still significant. Were the scouts right? Or could he have played well with consistent football at 32?
