Do playing with WB(A) focus passing to them?

Only playmaker roles attract the ball. So for the WBA no, they don't attract the ball more than normal. That's not to say you can't channel play through them more though.

Nice one. I had a wide player who I want to be the main creator of my team, would IF(S) or an AP(S) in the AMR position yield better results. Baring in mind I already have a AP(S) in the MC position or is that acceptable?

If you read the descriptions and look at the PIs and Key Attributes for an Inside Forward on Support and a Wide Playmaker Support, what would you think will better suit the main creator of the team?

Yeah I played a few games using the AP(S) and didn't like how central he come, kinda got in the way of my BBM so reverted back to IF(S)

That's kind of what the APs is supposed to do :D

Maybe modifiy the AP (s) w/ a PI "Stay Wider". And THEN you can get what you want

How the ME interacts with contradictory instructions with PPMs, like a winger that has the Cuts Inside PPM or a deep-lying playmaker that has the Gets Forward Whenever Possible PPM?

Will they do some sort of 50-50 or is there some form of hierarchy?

Do you have a u20 or u18 manager? Look in the staff responsibilities and make sure you're in-charge of them.

I have responsibilitie over everything. Now the training workload is sitting at medium, however looking at individual training everyone have a heavy intensity without any typ of extra training, ppm or positional training.

Starting to believe this must be a bug ?

The hierarchy is that the PPM will always take precedence as it is a tendency for the player regardless of what else is instructed. It doesn't mean that he'll always evade your instructions, but there will be many times where it will be the case.

There is contradicting info and I don't have a firm answer for you at the moment, except to say I have seen low strength players develop the PPM. Hopefully someone that knows for sure will chime in, but if not, I'll try to find out.

Players can have any PPM regardless of their attributes. However for this PPM to be really successful and useful then ofc the player needs a decent strength rating to profit from it. But to learn it, he doesn't need high attribute.

I know its not the right thread but i cant find the relevant one and have asked in the club thread already, apologies. Does anyone have problems selling players? I cant sell players for their value. Walcott and Giroud valued at around 28m but when i try to sell them i only get offers around 14m. I have had the chat and told them i no longer need them and they say they want to go but the offers are still way below their value. Can anyone help with this please? Thx

You know its not the right thread but still asked anyway. It's the wrong forum complete. Please use the thread for questions that are related to either tactics or training. All other questions will be deleted/removed/ignored.

Yes it has hard-coded behaviors that make the players look for them more.

Is there anywhere to see in FM16 what each training effects what attributes? I'm sure in previous games in the training screen you could see that ball control focused on first touch, dribbling. Where as fitness effect stamina, strength etc.

I don't think it tells you but it's still the same as previous versions so it's;

  • Fitness : Acceleration, Agility,Balance, Jumping, Natural Fitness, Pace, Stamina, Strength, Workrate
  • Tactics: Anticipation, Composure, Concentration, Decisions, Teamwork
  • Ball Control: Dribbling, First Touch, Heading, Technique, Flair
  • Defending: Marking, Tackling, Positioning
  • Attacking: Crossing, Finishing, Long Shots, Passing, Creativity, Off the ball

Why has the "Control" mentality a higher line (visually in the TC) than the "Attacking" mentality when I select "higher defensive line"? I don't get it...

It's just a visual quirk. It definitely isn't higher at all.

when bringing youngsters through the youth that are not ready to play will loaning them out be just as good? or will giving them first hand experience in your team benefit them more e.g harry winks hes not first team quality for spurs but would it benefit to keep him in and use him occasionally, but would he benefit more from playing in top tier football rather than lower league football only less ofter?

Top tier football is better and if you keep him at the club, you can make sure he develops the attributes you need, give him a good personality and ensure he has the PPM's you want him to have. Loaning him out you lose all of that but he gains playing time. I'd personally never loan them out and would rather than mould them into the players I want while giving them game time at my current club regardless of how strong/weak I might be.

Hi Cleon. I have always thought this is the better way to do things but it never seems to work out how i think it will. But when i send players out on Loan they suddenly turn better in a season without me really realising it. I try to give training instructions and mould players but is it just about giving them game time that is the ultimate gain for youngsters. I'll give an example. I had a player at Maidstone when i got to the premiership. Never noticed him, played in my u18 and i loaned him out as didn't give him a chance to get into my first team. Two years at Cardiff later and he's the best english winger (doesn't say much) and only 20 so i play him in the first team and 3 years later he's in the world team of the year.

On the other hand i have a player now at Arsenal. Scouts say he could be 5 stars (4 1/2 with half shaded) and stats for a 16 year old are incredible. So i think i'll keep him and try and mould him into the player i want him to be as i have Pogba and see him as the perfect replacement. Got Pogba tutoring him, have him training with the first team with coaches that are good with youngsters, try not to overwork him and i play him in all cup games and against lesser champions league teams. He also plays the end of games i am comfortably winning and in my u21 team so gets a lot of game time. And when he plays he plays quite well to be fair to him. Only problem is this has been going on for 3 years now and attribute wise he has hardly developed. Is there something i am missing as players I have sent on loan have developed nicely but my coaching team and level of football is surely better than those at championship level? I know attributes aren't the be all and end all but it is good to see a player you like develop nicely. Just wondering if there is anything you might know of that can help develop a players overall attributes quicker or at all for that matter?

Each game I am getting a lot of shots, 90% of which are in the box, however we aren't scoring much at all. Most shots are saved or go wide. In fact, we very rarely get a CCC.

Is this likely to be a confidence/skill issue or a tactical one?

going on from this, does first team football improve different attributes vs training, say if you loan them out to championship there mentality will improve but in prem training more technical attributes?

How have you set up general training and what about actual individual focus for the player? If you aren't seeing attribute rises then it's definitely something you are doing or the player doesn't have much potential.

First team football doesn't improve attributes it just frees up current ability which then training distributes into attributes.

Did you change your tactics? I noticed changing to another formation will erase your set piece takers.

What do people understand by the 'Headers won' stat for teams, e.g. 10/20 (50%).

I don't quite fully understand what this signifies. I know that might sound daft, but I would assume this would relate to an 'aerial duel' - as in a player from each team challenging for the same high ball. But then I don't understand why the opposition will have a different figure from a different number of "duels".

Surely, if my figures for 'Headers won' are 5/20 (25%), then my opponents ought to be 15/20 (75%).

If anyone can shed any light on this, I'd be most grateful.

Cheers.

It'll include headers where only 1 person was involved (so no one from the opposition) and will then not affect the other team's stats. Not every header is contested.

Hello everyone,

If it is strong, what issues it provide? I mean, i play bad, my tactic familiarity is not fluid. To what problem in game i could temporary close eyes, because it will fixed, when familiarity become fluid?

I have given him individual training to improve a few areas of his game. I take it i am right in assuming that he might just not have potential in the areas i want him to, for example if i try to improve his dribbling he may just not have the potential to do so? and also that sometimes scouts can be wrong with potential abilities?

From my understanding, a defensive forward (defend) should be dropping back and putting pressure on opposition midfielders, but I'm not really seeing that in my save. Usually ends up in line with my CFA when the opposition have the ball, is me using the attack mentality having an effect on him?

How is it possible that my striker isn't suited to play as an complete forward? He is very allround and has high suitability to play all the other roles.

The complete forward role also comes with a potential modification. Hence why he's scored lower for that the the other roles which don't have this factor included.

Got it. So is there a way of setting up a forward to drop further back and put pressure on the opposition defensive mid without changing the mentality? I'm playing a very fluid flat 442 on attack at the moment that I ideally want to look like a 4411 when I don't have possession. As it is, I see no real difference between my defensive forward defend and complete forward attack, they're usually level when the opposition have the ball behind them.

I like playing with two forwards, so I'm loathe to have 4411 as my base formation, turning into more of a 442 when I'm in possession.

If that's what you want, then you should set the formation as a 4411. The formation you set is the defensive shape. The other option is to specific man mark a midfielder.

Could be that on very fluid the mentalities of your players become so similar there is no obvious difference between your DF and CF.

So if he for example played as an Complete Forward 10 games and had bad ratings during those games his ability for that role drops?

Never thought of that, I might give that a go and see what happens. Will also try man marking as HUNT3R suggested.

No that has no impact on it. What I mean with a potential modification is the game actually takes his potential ability into account when giving a rating out for complete forward, Raumdeuter and a Treq off the top of my head. But the other roles are only rated on his attributes alone. Those roles I mentioned take into account his role and his potential.

First team football doesn't improve attributes it just frees up current ability which then training distributes into attributes.

i don't have the editor, what do you mean free up Ca improve it or something else?

another question, when you see players with alot of red arrows redistibuting attributes does this mean they have reached their peak or just their CA for example if PA is 170 but CA is 155 would attributes be distibuted with red arrows as they have'nt improved more than this or do they keep improving untill they hit a ceiling?

Hi! I may have a stupid question that has a obvious answer, or maybe not. The thing I've been wondering about is if it's possible to make your fullbacks occupy their respective half-spaces? And a question about wingers, if it's possible to make them huge the touchline to really provide width and stretch the opposition defense?
