How to stop a player on a hat trick taking a penalty?

Recommended Posts

As the title suggests really.

Champions league final with Bournemouth against FM Man Utd (the team that performs least like their real life counterparts) and it's desmond.

Get a penalty and instead of being by one of my 3 listed pen takers, it's taken by a player who has scored twice. He misses.

How do I stop this from happening? (the taker, not the outcome)

Tactics screen, set pieces, penalties, at the bottom of the list of takers, there’s a tick box along the lines of allow player on two goals to take penalty. Untick this.

Also, during matches, when you get a pen, there's a message (top left corner, usually) saying who's about to take it, and you can click to change it.

This, for every penalty you get, it tells you who's taking it in the top left corner & you can click it to change the taker

This is the safest way.

Yep- half the time you are still thinking- what's happening, why is the referee standing 50 yards away from play pointing, what was that for?

There was an option in FM18 to change penalty taker at the time of the PK.  What happened to this?  I liked it a lot.

Thanks!  I see.  Before it had text that said <change taker> or somesuch.  I didn't realize that's all I had to do.

Is this around in FM17 as I can't say I've ever seen it

I don't think that it was for FM 17 and was introduced last year after suggestions from the community

Just noticed, in your penalty taker list, there's a tick box at the bottom to prevent a player on 2 goals taking a pen for his hattrick
