In real life, lots of players are often utilised in new positions that Football Manager doesn't think they could ever be re-trained to play as: E.g. - Zinchenko and Delph becoming Left Back's - Lahm becoming a world class DM - Silva and De Bruyne becoming central midfielders (from CAM / Wingers) - Mandzukic becoming a great wide Target Man - Deulofeu becoming an effective striker It would be great to be able to re-train players to new positions if they have existing attributes that match these positions E.g. Lucas Digne / Leighton Baines - In real life, they both have great composure, technique, vision, passing - all attributes that could easily allow them to be retrained as a central / defensive midfield playmaker. Eg. Tom Davies - In real life lacks technical stats, but has good defensive mental stats (anticipation, positioning, workrate, teamwork etc). Based on his best mental attributes, he could be retrained as a holding midfield player rather than BTB Midfielder. (Obviously not retraining Messi to become a Centre Back as his attributes don't match that of a great CB, but his attributes may match those of an advanced playmaker for example). Timeframe wise as well, currently it takes too long for a player to be retrained, and often the end result is ineffective if they are not already at "Accomplished". This could be accelerated by training, match practice, training intensity etc and individual work on those attributes necessary for the role. You could even add some interaction with the player on convincing them of the new role to begin with, saying this is where you see their best position, convincing them when they complain about it during training. You could even add fan interaction to it, frustration that they feel the player is being utilised incorrectly.
I am playing with wingbacks and no wingers. Since there are a lot of winger-regens and a lot less of wingback- regens, I am wondering if it makes sense to retrain wingers. Currently I am retraining a central midfielder to a wingback, but with that i dont see a big risk, since he already has reasonable values (for his age: 15) in the three vital defensive wingbacks attributes: Marking (9), Positioning (8), Tackling (8). Alaba is a great wingback and has 10, 10, 13 in these attributes. So they dont have to be that high. However, the regen winger often have really awful stats in these three attributes. Thus, my question: Is it worth a try wo retrain winger with that low key attributes for wingbacks (f.e. 4,5,6)? Is it maybe even easier to make progress in these attributes for wingers, since the starting values are so low? Thanks.
It probably hasn't changed in the last couple of release but I'm playing FM17 so that's the one I want to ask about I'm getting the usual complaints about my players being overloaded with training, even when in some cases their overall individual training is listed as "medium". I was just wondering, does setting the "position training" option to whatever the generic "playing position" option is removal player training altogether for the particular player? I always try to train every player in the position that they are playing or that I'd prefer them to play or if I'm retraining them. Sometimes that position training just happens to be the same as the "playing position". Therefore is it worth changing it or does that just add extra unnecessary training stress on the players? Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions! Nathan
