I want to add to what I said above that when you look at the possession stats of Man City and Barca in real life then you see that these clubs have 60-65% possession per match and when you look at the possession stats of these clubs in FM19 then you see that these clubs have about 55% possession and 10% difference might not look like a big deal but that is very wrong thinking.

If you want to see the difference more clearly then you should look at Passes Per Match or Total Passes Per Season instead of Possession stats

For example, Man City made total 28241 passes after 38 matches in the league in the season 17/18 which means about 740 passes per match

Now if we look at similar stats in FM19 then we’ll see that in FM19 Man City makes only about 17800 passes after 38 matches in the league in season 18/19 which means about 460 passes per match

 

 mc_02.png

 

 

 

Conclusion: in real life Man City makes about 60% more passes per match than in FM19 and that difference already looks huge  :) This number determines how these clubs play in real life and how they play in FM and as we can see they play very differently in FM19 and in real life.

 

 

 

It seems that In FM19 footblall players don't know how to pass which makes is vey bad :(

Too many goals coming from set pieces, both in the Youtube official videos, and my own play.

Other than that, largely positive. I would say that in role descriptions, text contrast / clarity is poor and ask that this could be improved?

One other teensy thing - when replay of goals we get crowd noise repeated - its a bit irritating.

Can anyone from SI confirm what types of things the "Encourage" shout is supposed to be the equivalent of saying?

I would have thought it would be a fairly uncontroversial thing to say to your players, but in my (limited experience) it only ever frustrates them. Maybe I'm misunderstanding what it is supposed to be.

As an aside, does things like "push up" change tactics or PIs at all?

Demand More and Show Some Passion work absolute wonders. Praise when you go 3-0 up or more.

Question about the 19.0.2 hotfix.

Didn't want to start a new thread for this, so hope someone sees and can answer. It mentions fixes to Turkish and Finnish leagues that require a restart. Does this include saves in which I have those leagues running but where I'm managing elsewhere? If I moved to a Turkish or Finnish club later in this save (unlikley but you never know) then would I be hampered by the bug to rules?

I suppose I should expect to have to restart in a beta, but I had a good start.

The issue that I raised above can be seen very clearly when you simulate 5 vs 2 counter-attacks situations.

On the video below, you can find couple of examples of the issue.

 

The defenders are Ramos and Casemiro

The Attackers are Messi, Suarez, Dembele, Coutinho and Rafinha

 

 

The attackers carelessly runs into the defenders and lose the ball, they ignore the teammates around them and passing opportunities.

The most frustrating is that many of Winger/Inside Forwards/Attacking Midfielders have “Run With Ball Often” PPM so you can’t do nothing about their behavior using the tactical settings.

Coutinho picks the ball and then runs onto 2 opposition players which stand in the center of the pitch… :seagull:

Hehe... Attackers with "Run With Ball" PPM  behave just anecdotal right now  :) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

it looks hilarious, especially, the last one... :)

Anyone else finding that some of the player ratings in match are a little harsh, FB/WBs especially.

The following screen is my LWB. Sure his connecting crosses is a little low, but he got forward in to threatening positions consistentlyand his defensive work is good.

His opposite WB got a significantly better 6.8, despite having a worse percentage on crosses and passes. Does that 1 key pass constitute a whole mark despite a worse attacking techincal performance?

Yes the fixed rules will only apply to freshly created save games, so if you wanted to manage in Turkey or Finland on your current save you'd be subject to the pre-patched rules.

Unlikely I'll end up there really, but thanks for the answer. Have to see how this save goes and whether there's any other similar updates in beta.

Thanks for taking the time to answer.

Well I took the plunge and bought the game. I've started a save with Penang in the Malaysian Premier League, as I'll be playing ultra LLM when the game is officially released and I wanted to get a feel for how the match engine handles less skillful players. (To be fair, some of the players in the Penang team are still much better than I'm used to managing.) I've been playing for three hours so far, and I'm yet to click Continue.

My first impression is that the new training module is great. In fact, that's an understatement — it's absolutely fantastic! It is going to take a while to get to grips with it, but it feels so real and authentic, and it's so well explained and presented. Everybody involved with the training module deserves a well earned beer or two! I'm also glad that mentoring seems to have been toned down this version, and I like the way that you can set up mentoring groups. 

The tactics creator looks promising. Although, when first starting out, all I really wanted was to set a rough formation to drop my best players into, so that I could figure out the formation and tactics to get the best out of those players. I ended up using Excel first to figure out my rough formation, and then I used the tactics creator after I had a rough idea of how I wanted to play.

Although it is very early days in my FM 2019 journey, I am happy with my initial impressions. Everything is just that little bit cleaner and more intuitive. It's just a little bit easier to do a lot of things, and all those little improvements add up to make a massive difference.

Finally, the purple skin looks great. I don't think I will ever change it.

Initial thoughts from me, only played 4 games but definitively positive.

UI is great, loads better than 19. Tactics centre is very well implemented and not overwhelming despite the endless amounts of options. Training is also very well done too, it actually feels like you're having an influence over training now.

Oh and the purple is definitely growing on me. Now do I start my hall of fame career or wait until full release....

Are we limited on whom we can add to mentoring groups?

I'm being told my goalkeeping group is too small so I'm trying to add my U23s keeper, but he's not showing on lists.

I moved him to the first team squad and, after continuing, was able to add him. As soona s I moved him back to the U23s he was taken off the mentoring group.

I'm sure there is many an occaison in the football world where mentoring groups include players from youth squads. I know that at Bournemouth the young keepers train with the two main keepers in the squad, despite not being in matchday squads. I assume this would be the equivalent of FMs mentoring groups.

I think it would therefore make sense if assigning players to mentoring groups included an option to filter in players of other squads too. To be fair, you could have a first team player mentor those in the U23s and U18s in FM18, so why the option's not in now is odd.

I seem to be regularly sending my front two clean through on goal together, yet I don't think I've ever once seen one square it for the other. I have seen them hit it at the keeper about 40 times.

Nowhere near the bug reporting level, because it still might be either selective memory or it might be e.g. confined to non-league football. 

That said, has anyone seen they players square it across a keeper for a tap in? Not the same as a cross to unmarked back post, which I have seen.

Despite this, I feel its the best ME, probably just because I haven't yet accidentally stumbled upon this year's glitch tactic yet.

Yes. Although only had a player with "support" duty do it, any Advanced Forward just melts it at the keeper. Not sure if that's intentional.

No problems with injuries either tbh, had one or two but you look at hearts in real life who just lost two starters for the majority of the season in the same week.

Man City top of the EPL so far with 65% possession aswell..

Silly thing SI brags about obtaining the licences for the Bundesliga (fantastic new feature), and simultaneously drops Liga.3 due to licencing issues (without any anouncements in that area before beta-release).

Furthermore I still think that stadiums in lower leagues are way too big. Only Denmarks lowest league has some standless sides as far as I have tried. For example Northern Ireland bottom division, Swedish lowest league, pretty much as low as you can go, all have 4 side covered stands. Check out a club like Bolnäss GIF in Sweden and compare the stadium FM invented for them and then check their accomodation in real life.  It doesn't have to look exactly like the real thing off course, but I think you can see my point. A capacity 1000 accomaodation, hardly a stand to be seen, resulting in a 4-side covered stadium in FM that looks like it can hold at least 8000 spectators. Same goes for FM18 by the way, every release I hope it gets better, and every release the dissapointment. Takes the fun out of lower league management for me. Hope this get fixed before release or editable in in-game editor. Would rather manage somewhere else than in Danish lower leagues (for realisms sake) for a change... Thanx!

Hmm, this is something I noticed last year, I might just be crazy, and it's confirmation bias.. 

Basically, the draw for cup games will choose a team I've either played recently or will play. 

Eg. I drew Cardiff in the Carabo Cup and the fixture is merely days after I played them in the league.

I know it happens in real life... Liverpool just had Chelsea in the league and Cup!

I noticed it last year over and over and I'm starting to notice is now. The only way I can see it being true is the dB caches certain teams to use at a time and hence throws in one of those teams to calculate the draw.

Or of course I've lost the plot and its merely, truly coincidental!

It's still not working for me. I've added my U23 goalie to train with my first team squad goalkeeping unit, but I still can't add him to a mentoring unit.

Is something bugged?

Yep, tried after contuining the game again. Won't let me. Gonna bug it and add a save.

Tried that. It's a little annoying as you seem to have to continue the game before anything takes hold.

It's proving a little bit on the cumbersome side. Love the ideas on show here though.

@Totalfootballfan i could not agree more with the Possession stats in FM 19 . But unfortunately , i think it wont change. Many People were complaining about that on FM 18 , and nothing was being fixed . I guess it's the same procedure as last year. If you want realistic Possession Stats in FM , then you gotta Coach those teams , which is ridiculous   . It can't be too hard to give Man City , Barcelona Possession tactics .

@Seb Wassell - But surely if they're in the same training unit then they are training together and spending time together? 

In past FMs I've been able to assign a young prospect to be mentored by an older experienced pro. It's been a useful method of bringing youth through to reach their potential.

So now what SI are saying is that we can't do that anymore - unless we chuck any player we want to improve in to the first team squad.

Can you not extrapolate that to say that we might as well put everyone in the same squad and set them to play for U23 or U18s with the new item tools?

I don't want to do that. I have squads so I can keep players grouped and not have an endless list for match selection.

On the Positional Units screen we can see the following:

GKunit.thumb.png.1a64b9a614b49e000b00377bf594aaa9.png

Then, to the right, we have this little box:

add1stteamtrain.thumb.png.9ec06cca5393208457e9bc30cb6d2a9c.png

That's why Adie Molyneux is the the Goalkeeping unit.

He's training with the first team, but he's not going to play so I leave him in the U23s. It makes sense.

However I want him to be mentored by Ross Flitney. I may aswell try and improve him.

So I set up the following group:

GKMentor.thumb.png.15bd31f0b921ab86eb019dffd6a168f2.png

But it tells me I need three players to make a mentoring group. I only have three goalkeepers so it's going to be Adie. He's training with the first teamers day in, day out. He sees them every day. Surely Ross can mentor him?

But no. As you can see he's not selectable:

addplayertomentor.thumb.png.04cc28a065fc46f7ae6edad8982c121c.png

So I have no option but to move him to the first team squad.

 

Are we not supposed to be able to have first team pros influence the improvement of youngsters any more? Was this a mistake in previous FMs? Because it was something I did often. I'd find a young player I saw potential in and ask a pro to mentor him.

It's taking a way a big part of the game for me.

 

I know this is done in the real world too. I've watched AFC Bournemouth training videos where the first team keepers train with youngsters that have never been on the bench and play regularly in the development squad. This is what we should be able to do.

 

Please reconsider this mechanic. If players in mentor groups have to be in the same squad then we might as well put everyone in the same squad. Otherwise we can't bring youth prospects on via mentoring. Only training.

I admit I'm no expert on the way training of youngsters at professional clubs work, but from watching AFCB videos it seems like the coaching team tries to involve young players with the first team as much as possible, and in a way that is effectively a mentoring group.

I appreciate if you guys at SI don't agree, but I felt I needed to make this point.

~~~~~~~~~~~

 

UPDATE: I want to add to anyone who is liking this post ( @roykela  @CelticCelticCeltic ) that I was directed to a thread in the training forum by westy8chimp. If you feel somewhat similar to me about the change to tutoring and the new mentoring format then you should check that thread out. It's really helped me understand why things have changed. I'll certainly miss the ease of tutoring, but I can see many benefits in the new mentoring system now. It's going to make me think about how I bring youth through much more. The problem currently is the lack of guides, something that I believe is to come at release.

Definitely wait for full release, don't know how much you've discovered, but  I keep going ooh that's nice even after all the inductions, keep discovering more. My plan is keep on this world of discovery until full release then may see you in hof career, I have a plan.

Anyone finding the vertical Tika taka tactic overpowered. Used it first season with HSV won the league with one defeat and that only came after I won the league in April. Also won the German cup and now just dominated bayern in the super cup and won it. Not made any changes to it.
