You squandered possession... yes, you.

Recommended Posts

After a game the stats said my midfielder lost the ball 7 times. So I criticise him for squandering possession, but he denies it.

Did I select the wrong option?

he may be a temperamental or be a low sportsmanship player. In that case they will only accept praise.

What was his pass completion percentage?

Cant remember his pass completion ratio, but he did score a goal and got a final rating of about 8.1.

So if they score a goal, their rating goes up, and then you cant criticise them for the other things they did wrong?

Also, does Lost Ball 8 times mean he lost the ball by making bad passes, or because he was tackled?

There needs to be context though and that's why Tom asked.

If he gave away possession 8 times with 10 passes, that's poor. If he gave it away 8 out of 100 passes, that's a whole different story.

And maybe he doesn't have the best personality (incl media handling)?

Or maybe he just doesn't respect you?

I'm his manager so he needs to start respecting my posts on internet forum websites. I'll make sure he does. Thanks.

You can check the match analysis to see. Quickly checking mine, it seems to be intercepted passes (including taking a corner) and getting tackled. Both resulting in loss of possession, so makes sense.

I'm not sure taking a corner should count. I know technically it is losing the ball but it's a pretty low % ball anyway. It's not like missing a 5 yard pass

I agree with this. It does count in FM18, unfortunately. I think it is a bit unfair, but I suppose it also depends on how heavily the match rating is penalised. Still, I also don't think it should count.

Im starting to play around with stats in the analysis section now. I can see how to add new columns from the chalkboard, but there doesnt seem to be a column for passes attempted. Do you know how to find out how many passes he attempted please? Then I can see how those 7 times he lost the ball are put into context.

Go to Possession. You can set the view to "possession lost" or LPs and then you can view how many times he's lost it and the specific incidents.

If you go to the match stats, you can see all the stats you want, including passes attempted, completed and not completed.

On my analysis, it seems I can't see what was the type of the possession loss. I have to watch every highlight to determine what caused the loss.

Did I miss something ?

No, you didn't. You need to view it to see.

OK, thanks. That would be a cool feature to actually see on that tab the type of possession loss instead of being obliged to review each one by one.
