The Development Hub is your one-stop shop for keeping track of everything to do with the progress your players are making on and off the pitch.
The Overview page offers the very Latest advice from your backroom staff while summarising the situation regarding training, mentoring, squad management and youth development. From there, you can switch to view each of these areas in much more detail from the Actions menu in the title bar. The Youth Development and Youth Squad sections will feature players who are graduating from your club’s youth setup every season, giving you all the information you need to decide who you sign to a contract and who to let go.
Training in Football Manager Mobile™ 2024 makes it very easy to understand what you have to do to make sure your players are in peak physical condition going into each match.
This screen within the Development Hub shows an overview of your club's current training programme. The Bookmarks menu in the Title Bar allows you to view the impact your training schedules are having on the players’ attributes in key areas.
‘Focus Role’ allows you to task the player with working predominantly on a particular role during training. This will allow him to improve in a position if he already knows how to play there, or begin to learn to do so if he doesn’t. Descriptions are provided alongside each role to help you understand what your players are working towards. ‘Focus Attribute’ works in much the same but instead works towards improving a specific attribute of a player’s game.
‘Intensity’ governs how hard they work during training. Intensive asks the most of them, potentially resulting in a quicker improvement, but at the risk of a higher chance of picking up an injury. A lighter intensity reduces that risk considerably, but the player’s development will be slower as a result. A medium intensity is set by default to offer the best balance overall, but you are free to change these as your circumstances require.
Players are Graded on their overall work, while the ‘Progress’ bar shows how well the player is developing towards achieving his full potential. A fuller progress bar indicates they are making considerable strides towards that mark, but a full bar does not necessarily represent the fact they have hit their potential; rather, it reflects a particular platform upon which they can then continue to develop and try to reach new heights.
Mentoring allows you to pair any two players in your squad – typically a more experienced team-mate alongside someone less experienced – and encourage them to work closely together on and off the training ground to accelerate the less experienced player’s development. Your backroom staff offer advice on the best potential partnerships and which attributes are most likely to be affected (positively or negatively) by the working partnership.
Squad Management, Loans and Youth
The Squad Management page allows you to take quick actions on your squad in one central location, listing them for transfer or loan – or removing them from those respective lists – in easy fashion.
‘Loan Progress’ details how any of your players out on loan have been performing, while Youth Development and Youth Squad will be populated with details of your new teenage intakes every season.
