  1. Have you ever been forced to choose between to goalkeepers for your first team? Perhaps you are lucky enough to be struggling with the choice between to wonderkid goalkeepers. Maybe you have lost your first choice keeper and are now searching the market for a substitute. Have you ever thought about what your tactics demand from your keeper? Lets start by enumerating and explaining the attributes of goalkeepers: Aerial Ability: how high in the air he can reach, what the other players call jumping reach. Jumping reach only affects a goalkeeper when heading the ball outside his own area, Command of area: how likely is he to attempt to intercept a cross. The higher the attribute the more likely he is to attempt this. Careful, this attribute has nothing to do with how successful he will be. Communication: communication is an interesting attributes in that it affects the defense. A higher attribute means a boost to a defenders mental game while a lower can work against him. Eccentricity: how likely is he to attempt to dribble, rush out to challenge someone to a one on one or dwell on the ball. This attribute is a double edge sword. A higher attribute means he will close down a striker that has bypassed your defense more often and sooner, but it also means he might try to to dribble that very same striker. Handling: how well can a goalkeeper catch the ball without dropping it. A higher handling ability results in fewer parries and overall a safer time for your defenders since rebounds are reduced. Kicking: the distance (not accuracy) a goalkeeper can kick the ball. The higher the number the further it will go. Accuracy is measured by vision, technique, decisions, anticipation and teamwork like any other player. One on ones: how well he deals with situations where the striker is in front of the goalkeeper. The higher the attribute the more difficult for the player to score. Reflexes: how well he reacts to shots. The higher the attribute the sooner and better he will move to block or catch the ball. Rushing out: will your keeper rush to face a striker or claim a loose ball? The higher teu attribute he better he will be at making the call. Careful, he still needs pace and acceleration to pull it off. Anticipation and decisions also play a part. Tendency to punch: how likely he is to punch and parry catchable balls. So is this a bad attribute? Not exactly. Imagine if Karius had deflected Bale's shot with his fist, Liverpool would not have received a third goal and might have very well scored themselves into extra time. If a goalkeeper is bad at handling this could be his lifesaver. Throwing: how accurate a goalkeeper is with his hands. This time it is distance that is determined by other attributes, in this case strength. Now that atributtes are covered lets talk about sweeperkeepers. Sweeperkeepers are special in that they need to be good at goalkeeping but also be comfortable on the ball (technique, first touch, passing) and have good vision (vision, anticipation, teamwork, decisions). I have a decent keeper with good technical and mental attributes and a better keeper who is not comfortable on the ball, who should I use as a sweeperkeeper? Go for the guy with comfortable on the ball, the other guy will concede stupid goals by passing the ball to the opponent or dwelling on the ball too much. Your keeper should be determined by your defensive line. A high line means there is going to be space behind your defense so he needs one on one, rushing out, pace, positioning and reflexes. When playing a low defensive line there is going to be space on front of your defense so the goalkeeper needs Aerial Ability, Command of area, reflexes, handling and communication. Isn't handling important for a high line? Not as much, the goalkeeper in a highline must first and foremost be able to deal with one on one situations against players who have left the defenders behind. The goalkeeper in a low defensive lines often finds himself surrounded by both his defenders and the opponents forwards and shouldn't just parry balls to whoever is nearby for that person could be an opponent striker who has suddenly found himself with a very nice chance against an open goal. All keeper attributes are important for all keepers but to me handling is most important for a goalkeeper who must generally deal with crosses and long shots. You mentioned reflexes twice, why? To me reflexes is the number one stat for a goalkeeper. A goalkeeper must place any part of his body between the goal and the ball. The attribute that determines how soon he reacts to a shot and therefore how well he can deal with it is reflexes. Think of the 2010 world cup final. Robben is in possession and has beaten Casillas who is on the floor, all he has to do is shoot and he will do what not even Cruyff could do by giving a world cup to the Netherlands. He lobs the ball ever so slightly. And Casillas raises his leg just enough to deflect the shot. Spain went on to win. Those were Casillas' reflexes doing at work. A knee jerk reaction to a shot. Think of Ochoa saving Neymar's header in the 2014 world cup just before the ball crosses the goal line. He failed to collect the ball (aerial reach, command of area) or grab onto it (handling) but his reflexes earned him, an admittebly shortlived, worldwide fame. I am sure you can come up with your own examples where every other attribute has failed but reflexes saved the day. I am not saying that reflexes alone make a good keeper but to me it is the first attribute I look at. If you don't have good reflexes for the level of football you are playing at there is no way you are keeping for my team. I hope that you find this post instructive. It is simply my way of looking at goalkeepers, if there is any question ask away. If there is any critique, critique to your heart's content. I am writing this because I am not sure if I am going to have the fortitude to write for my "The Special Way" topic after a 700km journey by car and I don't want to completely break the promise to write about football manager.
  2. I have a crash dump during team selection FM 2018 v18.2.1.1051982 (2018.01.02 15.56.50).dmp
  3. On match day i am unable to pick a team by the drop down on that position/left clicking on that player for the position or swap a player with clicking, it will let me start from the keeper with left click or drag and drop onto the position. FM 2018 v18.0.1.1030019 (2017.10.27 20.24.01).dmp FM 2018 v18.0.1.1030019 (2017.10.27 21.50.50).dmp
  4. Hi there... Whenever I try to play an international match, in my capacity as manager for Denmark, I get no further than the match preview. When I hit team selection the game freezes leaving me unable to do anything. I have cleared the cache, cleared the preferences and re-verified the game files + uninstalled/installed the game to no avail. All custom facepacks have been removed and graphic drivers updated. Help!!
  5. In this guide, we discuss tips on getting the BEST International Team Selection for your Country. You can also checkout all my other guides: Enjoy!
  6. I'd like to see the new squad depth screen made further use of and have it as an alternate view option for the Pre-Match Team Selection screen, such that it can be swapped from the standard tactical view we typically see. With the squad depth screen, FM shows your tactical layout and all the players that can play in each position and their star rating, if this could be modified so that we can then just quickly select a player at each position by clicking on their name entry in the player list it would be a boon. I'd also like to see the Squad Depth Team Selection screen tweaked so it also shows the players Condition/Sharpness radial and morale graphic next to each players name to aid selection.
