Ok, this is not a question, its more a wish for fm17 or 18 and I'm just posting it here because the wishlist thread is closed. It would be nice in the prozone stats analysis to be able to select an average team position with the ball and the opponent without the ball.

 

Did you read the closing post in that thread though? There's an entire section dedicated to feature suggestions.

Regarding 'playing more one-twos' as a PPM...if I teach a full back this PPM, will they play off another player with the 'one-twos' PPM?

ie.

BBM-S      DLP-D

CB-D           CB-D         WB-A

If I teach both the DLP and the WB the 'one-twos' PPM, will the WB start dribbling and play a one-two with the DLP to get higher up the pitch?

Is it advisable to try and impose a playing style (DNA) at a club in League One? Or it should be approached in a more old fashion manner, aka win games and get promoted until I sign better players?

I think it depends how you see the club, do you want to be there for years and take them up, then I'd say yes you do want to impose some form of DNA to them. I think the only thing would be, you might have to sacrifice part of your DNA temporarily until you bring in more players. You still want to win games while slowly building towards the tactic you'd be completely happy with.

Vaguely remember being able to do this in a previous version, where can I set the amount of rest days after a match as a default as opposed to individually?

Hello guys.

Two questions about individual focus training (FM15 related but i guess it's not much different).

1- When your AM report and even the player say that  "feels the individual training he has been assigned to work on is not going to produce any more results" do you just insist or change to other attribute?

2- When there your strategy consists in rotating individual focus every 3 or 4 months and the player make no gains between that time, do you still change or keep it till he eventually gain?

Thanks,

Ignore the player and assman and go for what you feel is the right training for you players. As for individual focus, iirc from one of the older training guides, you should train specific attribute for a period of 3 months or so, but if you are training a player in a certain role (forgot how it's called on FM15) than you should keep it for a longer period. Not a 100% sure about that one, but I'm using it to a solid success. Also, consider personality, game time and club facilities as possible reasons for poor development.

I got a question that I don't think really need a topic of it's own. Playing with Dortmund, I got Dzenis Burnic who has made great progress and developed well, but I'm struggling to find a role for him in my team. Here he is:

pG7bqzY.jpg

I play a 4-4-1-1 tactic, with a double pivot of DLP-D and CM-S. Weigl and Kimmich/Kaputska play that roles respectively. I wan't my DLP to be a holder who covers for an agressive full back. but also someone who brings the ball of of defense and distributes neatly. Is counter-part is more of a shuttler who links up with the attack and provide key passes, along with a bit of bite. Burnic really lacks the Concentration, Positioning and Marking to be a holder, but also strike as someone who would lack in the shuttler role because of his poor Balance (probably have hard time keeping hold of the ball), as well as avrage Decision, Stamina, Work Rate which are important for someone who should be more industrious in midfield.

Of course, I'm not going to change my working system for a player like Burnic, he not that good, but since I'm trying to bring as many players from the academy to the squad, do you think I can find a room for him anywere? If you were to set a tactic around him, how would you set it in order to get the best out of him? (Asking because he is really a unique kind of player and I have no idea where he would do best, maybe Regista?)

"Knocks Ball Past Opponent" means that a player becomes more likely to kick the ball into space beyond an opponent, run around that opponent and pick the ball up again.  Key attributes for that are things like Acceleration and Pace.

imo, this PPM is mainly aimed at more attacking players to help take advantage of pockets of space in threatening areas.  It's a fairly risky play, so for a central defender to have this trait positioned as he would be in a risky area (ie., close to your goal) probably isn't the best idea.

Can someone confirm this: Attacking width is set by the TI, defending width is set by the Mentality. Is it correct?

Thanx Herne , thats exactly what i wanted to hear .

Also the ''ppm '' tries to play way out of trouble is a risky one ? is the same for defenders-midfielders-attackers ?

Kind of.

Attacking width is set by both mentality and the TI.  If you change the mentality you'll notice the width change.

When defending, your players will automatically return into a compact defensive unit regardless of your "width" setting.  The difference being that they'll have further to run back into that shape if you have set a wide width as opposed to a narrow one.  That's the theory, and in practise it's rarely that straight forward - player attributes will have an impact (positioning, work rate and so on) as will the opposition who will be doing what they can to pull our defence out of that nice compact shape we want.

That is a very nice explanation. Thank you herne.

 

Can someone explain it to me what exactly a player does in his movement when "Moves into Channels" is selected? I have read Dr. Hook's FAQ thread but I can't picture it how a player moves vertically between the defenders.

And for Fluid/Very Fluid Team Shape, is it possible to counter the unwanted Creative Freedom with the TI "Be More Disciplined"?

This is what I do, but I need to test it in more matches to see whether it is not too much detrimental for certain players (Playmakers, False Nines).

For example (there are others but lets try to keep this simple) - imagine your AMC is in possession.  Ahead of him is your striker who is running towards goal (and the opposition central defenders) with the opposition defence retreating with him.  This is your striker using vertical movement.  As your striker gets nearer the goal, he may turn towards one of flanks and look to make a run "into the channel" between a central defender and a fullback.  This is horizontal movement into vertical space.  (Horizontal space is the space between the layers of your team ie., the space between defence and midfield, or midfield and strikers; whereas vertical space is the space between players in the same strata, eg., between defenders or between midfielders).  That may lead to two advantages:

1) Your striker has now found some space in a dangerous position and a clever through ball to him now from the AMC could lead to a good chance on goal.

2) One of the central defenders may follow your striker.  That may lead to creating space that another one of your attacking players may be able to take advantage of.

To an extent it can, however Very Fluid + Be More Disciplined will still leave you with more creative freedom than Fluid + Be More Disciplined.  It's also kind of contradictory, so you may find a different solution to what you are trying to achieve is better.  Further, Team Shape affects more than just creative freedom so make sure you factor that in as well.  There is quite an active discussion about Team Shape on the forum at present, have a read through that for more info.

Hi.

What's the difference between "gets forward whenever possible" and "gets into opposition area"? Another question is if it's worth it to teach any of those to a CM(a)? I guess not because the role and duty already do that.

Thanks

Get Forward Whenever Possible encourages players to make more forward runs.  Gets Into Opposition Area encourages players to get into the penalty area.  So you may want a fullback (for example) making forward runs, but not necessarily getting into the opposition's area.

A CM(a) could benefit from either PPM to encourage his forward movement if you think he isn't getting up enough.

Does just Aggression affect the willingness of a player to tackle someone near him, or is there something else at work? I notice my players hesitate to tackle an opposing player who is literally next to them. It happens with centre backs too, even though they have fairly high Aggression.

Thank you herne. Btw can you remember if the TI play wider in FM15 would also make the team play more down the flanks?

1. Is there any way of slowing down attribute changes like long throws? I really don't need my youngster to get better at LT. And centerbacks don't really need to get decent at corner either.

2. I was reading a guide that suggested it was possible to decide to workload of individual training, is this true? Can't find any options for workload on individual focuses.

3. Does match preparation training affect attributes?

I would expect a no on all three questions, but I just gotta make sure. Have missed some obvious stuff in previous FM's.

So long as you take control of player Training, and have General Training along with Individual Training set up (Position/Role and/or Additional Focus), your players will focus on developing on the associated attributes.  Other attributes can still increase naturally over time, but you shouldn't see significant increases.

This changed for FM16.  You no longer set the Training intensity, but rather a players' training workload is an amalgamation of General Training, Position/Role Training and Additional Focus.  https://community.sigames.com/topic/360336-important-fm16-training-changes/

1 hour ago, Steffen84 said:

3. Does match preparation training affect attributes?

Kind of.  It gives your players a temporary small boost to the relevant area you set for match prep.  It's not really an attribute boost as such, more of a small boost to how players behave in certain circumstances.  It only lasts for the duration of the next match.  You should also note that if you don't set a match prep your tactical familiarity may drop.

Do you think that CM(a) is on the right side, theoretically speaking?  The left WM has roam from position  cut inside and sit narrower instructions while the right acts more like a winger with only drible less instruction.

Im also asking this because i'm not sure if it's better to have him on the same side as the CF(a) or F9

Without knowing the full details of your setup, it's probably where I'd put him.

Only one way to know for sure though...:)

Anyone with experience as to, while having possession, draw the opponent's team shape towards one flank and have a holding player switch the ball to the other flank?

Some training questions I have!

 

I have a decent League One team with a promising young Center Back.  Scouting report says he's currently well suited for Vanarama National League.  He's 20 and I know playing time is important, but so is quality of competition.  So a few related questions if I may :)

1. If we were able to play an equal number of games in VNL or L1, would it be best to just keep him in L1 as he'd play against higher competition, or load him to VNL team where he'd also be more successful?  I guess reworded: does a player's form impact his growth compared to the quality of the competition?

2. Is the coach report for CA ("good player in Vanarama North/South") a good guide for what level I should loan players out to?  It sounds like loads of minutes against weak competition does very little for growing a player.

 

Thanks!

Does the DLF(a) still high up the pitch with the main job of scoring goals? Because i use 2 strikers F9 and CF(a) but  they run little too much with the ball  for my liking

It's probably more common for players in more advanced positions to have this PPM, but there is no reason why a fullback couldn't have it as well.

Not sure about teaching it to a DLP(D) however as by it's very nature a DLP will be attracting the ball and looking to spray the ball around, so telling him to play one twos may detract from that part of his game.

What is the effect of Look for Overlap when you only have 1 set of wide players playing in LB/RB or WBL/WBR positions?

It seems to increase their mentalitys slightly more attacking, would it make any of the more central players Hold up Ball like it would if i had more advance wide players?

A quick question on general team training rotation, if you're not using balanced then to optimise the training you need to rotate the schemes at least every 90 days to get the full effect? Thus tactical training only for 90 days then rotate to attacking for 90 days?

What about match day training, does that need to stay the same for 90 days or can you chop and change between matches based on what the scout recommendation is?

My understanding that Match Day training only applies to a temporary boost for that specific game (Team Cohesion and Tactics excluded of course).  So I assume we can change that freely as we feel is necessary game to game.

I'm havign some difficulties emulating Bielsa style because those two WM on Left and Right seem to be much more closer to the Two other guys on the wings and sometimes they are really close and I wanted to know if it would be better to have them as WB(S)?

Whats the meaning of the ppm '' argues with officials ?"  it is a bad ppm ? 

Some players have already this ppm and can be unlearned through training ,but it can't be learned through training ,

probably through tutoring ,but if is bad whats the point to be learned ?

If you really want to min/max things then a 3 month rotation is the minimum you should have.

Yeh it's a bad PPM and a great way for players to pick up unnecessary bookings.  Having said that, it is realistic - I'm sure we've all seen real life players argue themselves into a referee's book before and is probably(?) the reason it's in the game.

I could see this hitting players with a good attribute mix too.

Do PPMs ever spontaneously appear without focusing on training? This is one I could see making sense if that is possible.  Otherwise I imagine you just have to hope your regens don't get them.
