Wonderkids. We all know them, we all love them. Whether they're our own home-grown regens or whether they exist in the game at the start, at one point in our FM careers we've either actively hunted them down, or watched with joy as one turns into the absolute mountain of a man that SI proclaims them to be. But in real-life... What happens to those that don't fulfil the potential? Those meant to be at Real Madrid may stay at home, slowly drop down the divisions or even actively leave the game and we continue on, remembering them with fondness. Until Today. Goals for this Save - Using previous FM Wonderkid Lists (FM13-19) we will restrict transfers only to those who were previously considered FM Wonderkids. - Win as Much as Possible. Guidelines It's going to be tricky to quantify that which is a wonderkid that hasn't fulfilled their potential. Obvious indicators might be those at a club like Porto/Benfica/Barcelona who now play for lower league sides. Those who might still be at those clubs but have had their purchase price drastically reduced. Each signing I'll go over the case-by-case basis for why they've been included as a possible purchase. Value, Reduction in Potential (Through scouting only), Current Club will all be used to justify the purchase. And on we set, for a glorious onrush of Nostalgia.
I play Football Manager is phases, have done so for the past 15 years. I play and get into it for a few months, find a working tactic, understand my squad and have the success i want, and then stop playing for a few months and come back to it feeling almost completely lost and far behind the knowledge of my previous managerial in-game self. When this happens i am able to somehow claw back the knowledge from scouring this specific forum for hours, but sometimes i need just a quick, concise reminder to get me back on track. Disclaimer : I will most certainly get some of these wrong and want this to become more of a collaborative effort with people joining in and giving their battle worn advice. So, what are these attributes, (and attribute clusters) and what do they simply mean in terms of gameplay. Really. So you got a striker who seems better than the one you previously had but still can't seem to score the goals the previous one did so easily ? Same with a star midfielder, or defender. A tactic not working even though it seems good at face value ? There's a good chance there's an important attribute you are overlooking .
What are some of your tried and true strategies for getting the best out of very high potential players. I want examples from people's past experiences and not just opinions please. I have a few really good young players in my save who have developed very well, but seem to not be growing anymore in attributes i want them to grow further in. I know they still have some growth left in them and i'm currently seeing them progress in attributes that arent very meaningful for their positions, like long throws for a forward. Is it better for me to use the remaining potential to train them for new positions ? Has it worked out great for anyone here ? Thank you
