Taking a player off when you've used all your substitutes?

14 posts in this topic

Why can't I take off a player when I've made all my substitutes?

Often I've made all my subs, I'm winning 4-0 and one my strikers is on 65%, why can't I just take him off?

I think they need to be injured. It makes sense in reality, you'll never see a team bring a player off and go down to 10 men just because he's tired.

Ive had a injured striker and believe me, I would rather play with 10 men. He was off-side alot of time, wasnt able to send acceptable passes and it was aching to see the way he was controlling the ball.

Beside this. I AM the manager. When I would like to continue with 10 man in a match that doesnt make a difference. (Cup vs a 3rd division when already being in front 11-1)

If i recall in real life a manager did take a player off for poor performance he then carried on with 10 men to teach the player a lesson as the team played better without him

I had a player that got seriously injured, and he needed to be taken off. Problem was I had made all 3 substitutions. So I watched as he slowly wandered off the pitch, before jogging back on, only to be booked by the ref for a foul he had commited (that was how he got injured) and then lie down midway between my box and the halfway line. He lay there for the last 20 mins or so of the match. Was kind of funny to imagine him sticking a leg out in an attempt to tackle anyone who came near him :)

Woulda been nice to be able to withdraw him though, even though I don't think he actually did anything.

Are you allowed to do that in real life? I could imagine a manager being charged with bringing the game into disrepute for disrespecting the opposition (unless they are SAF of course)

You can take the player off if he has a green cross

Just try to substitute him and you'll get a message saying you've used all your subs but 'player' is carrying a knock do you want to take him off

Have you read any of the posts in this thread?

I was saying I wanted to sub a player who was in low condition, but without any injury or knock.

Its definitely happened recently, not sure if it was Spurs or not though. I remember someone took off a player who should have been sent off, but wasnt, so voluntarily made his side down to 10 men.

Should be able to do it, I have no doubt it happens irl...

edit: I've had it beofore in FM where a player gets injured, has to come off, then at the end of the match in squad screen, theres sod all wrong with him...
