  1. Recently started a save with Las Palmas and wanted some of my C team players to learn from more experienced players of the first and B team as their determination was awful. I can assign a tutor for them but it only shows the "learning" icon until I hit space and forward the game. The next day the icon is gone and I can ask another player to tutor them. The player I assigned to be the tutor then is available to be a tutor for other players, even multiple players and the next day the tutoring seems to stop again. Some of my players now are not tutoring anyone but in their profile it says "player has recently finished tutoring" On the side note, I don't have any players in my U19s squad. Why is that? Licencing issues?
  2. I have a newly joined player who I wished to tutor. When attempting a link up with a suitable tutor, I get to the part where I "...just invite him in the room" and then suggest the tutoring, and the tutee basically says, "no, I don't have any interest in getting close with this guy." I've never seen this behavior before so I presume this is a new feature/response added to FM 18. However, there are some inconsistencies around its implementation. I have uploaded the save as "SGijon 2017 Aug 8 tutoring.fm" First, the tutee... Raphael Guzzo, Backup MC. Looking at his Dynamics page you'll notice that a) he seems to think highly of Carlos Carmona, and b) he wants to join a social circle Okay, sounds good. I mean, if he looks up to somebody and wants to join their circle, what better way than to offer him the opportunity to become his tutee...? So, I give it a try... So far so good. Carmona is listed amongst suitable tutors, as he should be Let's see how this conversation plays out... Um, wait... what? You just told me that you look up to the guy and want to join his social circle, but have no desire to have him tutor you. Any options other than just concluding the talk right here lead to Raphael being unhappy with the convo/me and not tutoring with Carmona. So, I can understand trying to implement a new element to the tutoring, but it should be done a little bit more carefully and elegantly I think. It seems highly unlikely that a new signing of marginal reputation is going to talk back to their head coach when a tutoring relationship is suggested, much less with somebody whom he supposedly views as a great locker room presence. I'd suggest either ditching or softening the tutoring 'fight' in the tutees, or at least create more consistent signalling within the dynamics page. Something like, "this guy hates everyone on the team and can't stand you either." Okay, fine, then I'll understand why he doesn't want to be tutored. Cheers -rc
  3. I think the tutoring system should be slightly tweaked. At the moment there are number of factors which mean a player cannot be tutored by another. Most of them are logical and reasonable however there is one that sticks out as weird. - Tutor must have equal or higher squad status to tutee Perfect example I had in a save; Donnaruma is my starting keeper and I bought in Buffon on a free - should be the perfect tutor to Donnaruma. However I cannot get Buffon to tutor Donnaruma as their squad statuses are too different Backup/Key Player. I think this should be changed to give you a reason to bring in some older, experienced players for cheap/free solely to tutor players. Could also allow coaches (ex-players) to specifically tutor players? Thoughts?
  4. Hey, everyone. Quick question - is there a reason I cannot set up any tutoring whilst managing a part-time squad in the Conference North? Example above: Over 24 First Team squad status Low reputation however asking him to tutor a non-league academy youngster Only difference I can see is part-time contracts, does that make a difference? This is the same across my squad. Nobody can tutor. Not even getting the usual "x-many players have too high reputation to be tutored" messages. Simply no tutees. Any ideas?
  5. Hello Dear Friends, I have a question about 'Tutoring'! In Korea, there are many theories about Tutoring. 'RCA, CA, PA' increases. <- Really? we are acknowledges that the rate of growth increases. But, As I said, there's a rumor that 'RCA CA PA' does increase. Is this true? If not, what is the correct answer? To be able to tell all Koreans, Help! p.s And to the Korean players There are rumors like this. " Does 'PA' increase due to activities outside the stadium." It is ture? If this rumor is true, in what circumstances does 'PA' increase? ;_;
  6. Your "Squad Personality" can be found on the Club - General page as per the graphic below. If you are playing FM17, I would be grateful if you would just post what your squad personality is. You can post a pic like me if you want, but I would be more than happy with just a "Fairly-Determined" or "Balanced" as a response too. By the way, this thread is not a gloating contest for all those who have great squad personalities, I want the rubbish one's too, and even those that have already been mentioned by others. I just want to see what the various options are and what the more most common one's are. Please reply.
  7. Add in player info a tab with list whom he can tutor (and be tutored) in my club if I sign him. The same like development -> tutoring, but for scouted player. Just found rather good old cheap resilent player and have young balanced player on same position with same CA and good PA. So I consider to sign elder to try to tutor my player, but since tutoring is a bit mystery to me I'm not sure if I ever will have option to propose tutoring between them. But I'm sure my scouts and coaches knows for sure.
  8. If, after reading some of my long-winded drivel, you somehow find that you could do with more of my drivel to read, then a lot of my stuff can be found in the following threads. Some of the threads will be mind, and others will have shared contributions. Either way, if you like what you read in this thread, then the following threads might be enjoyable too. If on the other hand you think I am boring, need to get a life, and what the hell is it with all those nicknames and will you just shut up about Professionalism, tutoring and just go and buy some players, then the following are probably not for you. [FM17] Football, fire and ice: The inside story of Iceland's remarkable rise. In the build-up to EURO 2016, I was reading a Guardian article that I was linked to on twitter, and while the whole article was great, there was a single little paragraph that resonated with me and the way that I play FM. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/jun/08/iceland-stunning-rise-euro-2016-gylfi-sigurdsson-lars-lagerback?CMP=share_btn_tw "Take some small task and do it to death". That sounds like my mantra for FM. The concise very definition of the way I play. From a Target Man winning 67 consecutive headers in FMwhateveritwas, (just because someone said it couldn't be done), and San Marino winning the World Cup, (again, you can't do it without cheating!), to goal-scoring GK's, (that's ridiculous, you will never get past 50!) and Youth only saves, (boring, I stopped reading at the top of page 1), I suppose the way I play FM has always been...... unusual. So Iceland seemed to suit me, (and of course I have never managed there which is an attraction too). Another attraction is that we rarely see others managing in Iceland. San Marino is all the rage now, (at least it was last year, even when you kept getting sacked 8 years into the NT job), and Gibraltar is popular with the official structure add-on being released every season now. But Iceland are neither too rubbish to be a "proper challenge" for idiots like me, nor good enough to be managed in more commonly. As for which club I was going to be, well I was torn. Initially, my plan was, (as usual), to go on holiday for 1 season and then select one of the teams that were promoted into the bottom playable League, but this was different. The article I linked to above mentioned Breidablik specifically and how, with the arrival of the economic meltdown, they were the 1st to discard expensive foreigners and rely on home produced Youth *** I was reluctant to start with a team in the Úrvalsdeild, (that's the Premier League to you and me), so instead I looked lower down in 1. deild karla, (that's the First Division to you and me). Semi-Pro, (check), Synthetc pitch, (check), Council owned stadia, (check), Great youth facilities, (check) and Well established youth recruitment, (check). Predicted to finish 7th of 12 teams in the FM16 game. No affiliated clubs, (so they're not a feeder which I was worried about), not a single non-Icelandic player, (check), and just 1 single player with senior International experience. Jóhannes Karl Guðjónsson doesn't ring any bells to me, but he has played at Villa, Wolves, Leicester, Burnley and Huddersfield. I may not recognise the name, but I certainly recognise the career. That's Joey Gudjonsson to you and me. Handknattleiksfélag Kópavogs is a bit of a mouthful, but thankfully they are more commonly known as HK. The club dates back to 1969, but was officially established on 26 January 1970. Originally only a handball team, with the football team established in 1992. The summer of 2007 saw the football team play for the first time in the Icelandic top division, the Úrvalsdeild. The club were relegated in their second season to the second tier and were again relegated to the third tier in 2011. I've been going through the current (ISL) senior International squad and seeing how many, (if any), have been produced by HK. Hólmar Örn Eyjólfsson is a centre-back who moved from HK on to West Ham before joining Bochum in Germany and onto Rosenborg in Norway. Rúrik Gíslason is a winger who moved on to Anderlecht and Charlton, before going through Viborg and OB in Denmark before settling at FC Kobenhavn. Kolbeinn Sigþórsson is one of the stars of the current (ISL) National side and although the big striker is currently at Nantes in France, he was snapped up by Dutch side AZ after just 5 games and 1 goal for HK in his debut season as a 16 year old. Good performances for AZ brought a £4.3M move to Ajax, but despite a decent scoring record in Holland, he was sold at a loss to Nantes last year, (where he certainly didn't set the World alight). So there is some degree of pedigree to the players that the club has produced in the past and certainly enough to fill me with optimism. I wonder if we produced a certain young man by the name of Orri Freyr Oskarsson though...... No. It seems that he was produced by Þór and whether it was as a result of a collapsed lung, or a change in name, he was never able to reach the heights in real life that many of us, (including myself), saw him achieve in game. Some say he was greedy, but I put this down to him actually being deaf in one ear, (it's true I tell you!) The reason for his decline from scoring 48 goals in 92 games for Þór could well be down to the serious issue of a collapsed lung, but it's equally probably that it's as a result of his pre-match diet of hamburger, chips and Pepsi, (again, I tell you it's true!), but you also have to remember that the (ISL) leagues were sponsored by..... yes, you guessed it, Pepsi, back then. I have had a look at the FM16 HK squad and it was pleasing that although all were Icelandic, we did have a single solitary 2nd Nationality. (I love a 2nd Nationality for some reason, possibly because I am English but to Irish and Scottish parents). That the 2nd Nationality was Nepalese, (yes really), is just a bonus, because I have never seen a single Nepalese FM player ever never mind about had one in my squad. I hope he's still in the FM17 squad. The first thing that jumps out at me, (looking at the FM16 HK squad), is that where as the default setting for a Serbian player in FM seemed to be between Balanced and Fairly Ambitious, (neither of which I am keen on at all), the default personality for an Icelandic player, seems to be between Balanced and Fairly Sporting. Fairly Sporting Spo 15-20, Pro & Det & Amb & Loy all 1-14 That doesn't look good at all. (Pro) and (Det) both at 1-14. If it was Sporting rather than (F.Sport), things would be better because it would look like this. Sporting Spo 18-19, Det 1-9, Pro 5-20 Potentially lower (Det), but potentially higher (Pro). Looking at the squad, (again, I am talking about the FM16 squad, then I have 1x (F.Pro) player, and that's it. The actual make-up of last season squad is as follows. 14x (Bal) 1x (L.Hearted) 1x (F.Pro) 10x (F.Sport) 3x (F.Loyal) 1x (F.Det) 3x (F.Amb) 1x (Amb) 1x (Sport) 1x (Resilient) 1x (Honest) 1x (Spirited) I think it's safe to say that we are going to need some tutors on the hurry-up. With that in mind, I need to have a think about what my self-imposed rules are going to be. In my Partizan save I started off by saying that I would only sign Serbian players, but then relaxed it to allow myself to sign non-Serbian non-playing tutors, but obviously Iceland doesn't have quite the infrastructure that Serbia has. I'm tempted to relax my initial rules to include all Scandinavians, (and still allow myself to sign non-playing tutors from absolutely everywhere), but with the idea being that I will slowly wean myself off non-Icelandic Scaninavians and then ultimately, even non-home-grown Icelanders. I'm not sure how realistic this is going to be, but that's my thinking anyway. Having never managed in Iceland, (and only just becoming aware that they have a rule of a maximum of 3 non-EU players in the squad, (why don't England do that?), I'm not sure at this stage what sort of players are going to appear on my scouting list, but I guess I will use the above as a start and maybe refine/relax things as I go depending on how I am getting on. I just have a Senior squad and an U19 squad which is a little strange for me, so it seems that from quite an early stage in the save I am going to have to improve at selling/releasing players and/or get a feeder club going in order to get some of the fringe players loaned out and playing competitive football. We will probably need to get promoted before we can loan players out into a playable league, (and there is absolutely no guarantee of that), and even then the 1.deild, (Icelandic 2nd League), has a rule whereby each match squad can only have a maximum of 4 loan players, (so 1 single feeder club in the league below is just not going to cut it). Maybe I shold load the Faroe Island sructure, but that isn't going to be playable from the off so I guess that's a no-go. Decisions decisions decisions. Something that should be mentioned at this juncture is that in real life it takes 7 years for foreigners to gain Icelandic Nationality, (but only 4 years for other Scandinavians). It should also be mentioned that being born in Iceland to non-Icelandic parents does not in itself entitle you to Icelandic citizenship. The next... problem, predicament, whatever you want to call it, is that because it's very cold in Iceland, their season actually runs from May to September, so by the time I start my save, we will in all likelyhood, gone through pre-season and...... actually, hang on, that's not right. If their season finishes in September, and the game doesn't come out until Novemeber, then in my FM16 save, why am I looking at a fixture list which says that we have already gone through pre-season, and played 6 out of 7 Deildabikar Group B games? (No, I don't have a clue either but we will see in the 2nd season I guess). Ok. This is a disaster. I have just looked to extend the contract of 1 player and the option for an additional "option" on the player did not exist. Is this an Icelandic thing? This could kill the save before it begins! Right from the off my plan is to select players based on PA rather than CA, and hope that I have enough guile about me in order that we don't get relegated and I don't get sacked. Based upon previous saves, this is not a foregone conclusion. 2 go down from a league of 12, so I just have to finish higher than 2 others. That's doable, (even with 16 year olds, isn't it....)
  9. First Team Debuts: The coach who gives the chance a youngster to make a first team debut should become his favorite personnel & he should speak highly about him after match - just like the national team debuts. Then we may say "this is just beginning, keep working hard in both training & matches in order to continue this dream". Idol/Favorited Personnel Effect: Most recent example of it, Arsenal signed Mustafi who explained the effect of Ozil on him to join Gunners. When we offer a contract to a player after the transfer offer is accepted, I think it would be more realistic to let his favorited personnel or his citizen in our squad to convince him to join the team we manage. Then the player (if he agrees to join) may reveal the effect of his idol to join the club instead of others, he may speak highly about his idol & mention he wants to follow footsteps of his idol, etc. Some more interactions with squad such as: To say a promising youngster that you are going to help him to reach his potential & so demand him to be more determined and consistent. Encourage the player to improve his weakness such as "you have the required technique & flair to be a world class striker but you should improve your movement & off the ball. Please focus on those areas". To say an experienced player that he is critical for the team, youngsters need his experience. Request him to help youngsters. To say our star player that his performance is very critical for the club, so make him aware of his importance & keep him focused on the task. Tutoring: We should be able select which side of the game (I mean attributes such as movement, off the ball, finishing, etc) or PPM (run with the ball through the center like the tutor) we want the tutee learns.
  10. I often/usually play a Youth Only type save and I am quite big into tutoring. I have just been involved in a discussion where I was trying to explain to someone who has serious Determination issues within his squad, (and I mean serious to the extent that the overall squad determination level is so poor that even when he gets a determined player through the intake, he very soon drops down to a single digit (Det) figure because the overall squad (Det) makes it drop, (and this happens too quickly as far as I'm concerned but that's a whole different kettle of fish), So let's take "Professional" for example as a personality type. Professional Pro 18-19, Tem 10-20 A more accurate name would probably be "Professional with a good temperament". In know that you are looking for a quick single-word title, but I think it can be a little misleading. I don't particularly mind (Pro) as a title actually, because I think it's close enough, but "Balanced" on the other hand is named particularly poorly in my opinion. Balanced Pro 1-14, Det 1-14, Amb 1-14, Loy & Spo 1-14 For a start, Balanced suggests equal or level or middling or something like that, but as you can see from the low top end limits of it's component attributes and the minimum bottom end limits, it's not really what it claims to be. I would love to say that the new name for "Balanced" should actually be "Insert name here" and the reason it should be named this is (1). Bla (2) Bla Bla and (3) Bla Bla Bla, but the truth is that I'm afraid I don't have either a name or even reasons for a name. I just have my dissatisfaction with the existing name. Sorry. Well half a suggestion is better than no suggestion at all. Maybe someone can add to my suggestion... [Edit] How about "Common" as an alternative name for a personality with the same attribute settings as the current "Balanced"?
  11. Hi, If i have a promising youth player (AMC) who really lacks bravery can i have him tutored by a player who doesn't play in the same position as him (RB) but has good bravery or will he pick up unwanted ppm's from that tutee?
