21 goals from 98 shots....but this particular file, its 76 shots on target, not counting the ones off target and only 11 scored. he's had 166 shots all together

Please start a thread in the bugs forum and upload your save game. I think it is something that should be looked at by the coders.

IRL Man City currently lead the 'hitting the woodwork' charts with 11 in 12 games. I think considering most FM matches have more shots at goal than IRL - current FM figures are not that excessive.

That's a huge outlier though, not consistent with other teams in the league, nor previous seasons.

Agree with the point you're making in essence (that both shots on goal and woodwork hits are too high), but I'd wager the goals scored per match aren't proportionate to those inflated stats. FM19 had the same problem. 

it makes the opponent keeper have very high ratings...each game, the opponent keeper has a avg of 7 or more

just what @rjferguson90 said. also, thats in 12 games...it could very well stay on 11 for the next 10 games or so. i'm hitting it twice a game, so in comparison, i would have hit the woodwork around 24 times in 12 games...City hitting it just under 1 each games, i'm hitting it 1.8 or so each game

Zitat

By comparison, my team (highest scorers in the league), had a total of 801 shots across 46 league games (17 per game), with the woodwork being hit 55 times (1.19 per game) in total. 

Team scored 90 goals, a goal every 8.9 shots. 

That seems fine to me. 

 

It may seem fine to you. But it's totally not.

City and Chelsea hit the woodwork 21 in 38 games in the prem last season.

Hoffenheim 27 in 34 games in the Bundesliga.

And these are the outlier teams.

Maybe your strikers should train shooting accuracy more

The point I'm trying to make is that IRL the stats are lower because generally FM teams have mores shots at goal than IRL. 

If we use Liverpool for example. They've have 199 shots this season, which is around 16 per match. However, if you're playing as Liverpool in FM, with say an attacking gegenpress, your shots would be considerably higher and therefore the chances of hitting the post will increase.

Yeah true, saw 2 games in where mctominay overlapped pogba, wanted to boil my eyes out but it's not like that is happening IRL atm :rolleyes: 

 

I think that tends to happen when near goal scoring oppertunities or somewhat near a narrow team as your fullback (assuming that's a wingback considering how high he is maybe in support or attack?) but it's almost like an IF kinda area unless he has a trait to get into the area or box? The more narrow they go they tend to stay close and probably does stifle but then i'd expect the others to push wide and create that space as you said you play wide. I'd probably post that in the bug forums or analyse a few more and see if does the same and post PKM's. Good find tho and good try on the multi quote xD

McTominay overlapping is insane! I might have to start a save with Man U, I like the look of McTominay as a BMW & I've never managed Pogba, might be worth it's own thread in the tactics section  

That guy was a FB-S (he does look rather high up the pitch), but yeah, I'd expect the AML/R to be wider of the centrebacks, I'll keep tabs on it  :thup:

bare in mind its not every game i have a lot of shots in...funny enough, the better the opponent to more shots i have haha but i just played burnley, registered 9 shots, 2 hit the woodwork, keeper saved 7 and game finished 0-0...it just seems like an obvious mechanism to stop me scoring more. i can understand the odd game here and there, but its every game...if i have 2 shots, i feel 1 would hit the woodwork

Are others finding that strikers don't score that many and miss a lot of very good chances, including awful shots which go miles wide under no pressure? It's not like they aren't getting several chances.

In my first 10-12 games or so my top two CF have two goals each but are being outscored by my two central midfielders (who have scored mainly screamers) and central defenders (set pieces).

I won one game 7-1 and the goalscorers were DC 3, DL 1, MC 2 & SC 1, with 3 set piece goals from the DCs and 3 screamers from range for the MC and DL goals, the striker scored a tap in from a rebound after another 30 yarder from my MC.

I'm also getting pretty fed up with my wingers running to the byline and shooting into the side netting.

It just feels off... Might be my tactics, but I'm just playig a flat 4-4-2 and it is creating a lot of chances, I'm just not taking them and scoring from 30 yards and set pieces instead.

Into february in my first season and having a blast so far. I love how fast the game moves between matches now. Feels like much faster moving through a season than last year. And a big thanks to all the SI staff for getting the bug dealt with quickly on release day. Good work as always folks!

Funny thing is, that is exactly what you just did. Man City is a total outlier this season. (Last season for example they hit the woodwork 24 times in 38 games and this was the highest stat in the league)

But in FM, teams generally have more shots than their real life counterparts. I would imagine this is why in FM shots hitting the woodwork stats are higher.

By that logic there also should be consistent non-realistic scorelines then, in keeping with the inflated FM shots on goal, but scorelines are generally similar to real-life.

 

I just can't believe people don't think there's a woodwork issue, it was the same of FM19 and I posted about it then too. It's just not consistent with real life at all. I agree that there there are also too many shots on goal in FM, which may contribute to the woodwork problem, but that's not an excuse for it, and it dilutes the immersion.

nobody isn't saying the woodwork stats shouldn't be higher, its common sense and law of averages woodwork would be hit more times when have so many more shots...but its too much is what we are saying. at this rate, it would be hit 100+ times...so far its 88 times, i've scored 104. i've only scored 18 more times i've hit the woodwork..compare that percentage with real life stats and im in Feb.

I'm getting sick of seeing the countless times my players are asking for an improved contract, even from newly signed players. It's become ridiculous that I have to sort contracts for players every season rather than them just getting on and playing... Has anyone else experienced the constant demands for new contracts, even though they're already on a high wage and only signed a year ago?

Does anyone know what attributes affect the demands for a new contract (outside of the obvious playing time), is it high ambition and low loyalty?

To add, playing time happiness is ridiculous. I have players with 40+ games a season with slight rotation when their condition is low 90s or lesser games and they become alienated... why/how can they feel alienated?

So I don't think this is a bug as such, so I haven't posted this in the bugs section, but playing on a Friday after a Tuesday Champions League game never happens. It can't even be due to fixture congestion as there's plenty of time between these two fixtures and the next one too.

I don't know if this is just a placebo but my team is performing considerably worse without Pogba on the pitch. So I'm thinking is it finally the FM in which the difference between the star player and his sub represented as in real life. I'm hoping it is..

Just my impressions of the game so far, having played 2 seasons.

  •  1 on 1's are still useless. I have never seen a striker miss so many chances, a lot are nearer the corner flag then the goal. It's so bad it's now meant that I've already gone to instant result.
  •  Penalty's are a joke, but this matter has been reported so nothing else needs to be said.
  •  Long shots are way too powerful.
  •  Little thing like a defender clearing the ball. Has so much time to turn around and clear the ball up front or even out for a throw in, but instead will just put it out for a corner first time.

 

Honestly just hoping that there is going to be another patch to this game, because there are so many problems during matches, that I'm already wandering what the difference between this FM and FM19 is.

Something like this you may want to get reported with pkm's. Sometimes its an ME issue but there can also be times where its down to animations net reflecting what is happening so well.

Played a couple of friendlies in the demo. Thoughts so far.

Positives

- General play seems a bit better in the match engine. No constant blocked crosses and shots and most of the action doesn't seem to come from the ball being pinged about and then crossed in from the wings, so that's good.
- Setting up a system of fines for missed training, going AWOL etc. is much needed.

Negatives (there are more of these)

- Players still only have short hair or are bald. Witsel is a white man with short hair. It's absurd.
- The stadiums still do not look any more realistic. I know, licensing issues, but an olympic track, copyrighted? Come on.
- I am not noticing these different body structures that the players are supposed to have. The managers look better though.
- Penalties. It has been mentioned I think. 2 penalties in one of my friendlies, and the player didn't fall over in the box for either of them. When was the last time IRL a ref gave a penalty if a player stayed on his feet?
- Sound is completely out of sync. No cheering when a goal goes in, but then on the reply, loud cheering. Huh?
- While the match engine is generally a bit more varied, it often seems like players just run through others at times.

Verdict

Not likely to buy game.

Leverkusens vision rightly enough says " sign players based in germany", along with "sign german players" and "sign under 23s" but come on. He fits two out of three.

Do you really think they care about the fact that Im buying him from PSG, and not Hertha Berlin?

Tried the demo still in preseason, first impressions about ME...football looks really really solid, untill final third. players' decisions are strange once the ball is around box, constantly looking to play the ball out wide. striker isolation (and central play) is still an issue, it feels you could easily play without striker and wouldn't notice it. one touch passing looks nice but without ball ever reaching supportive striker, it looks a little weird and repetative. still too early to judge but AI tactics looks improved, more defensive tactics play like they should, counter attacking seems effective. must admit i've seen some really good football from AI. haven't had too many 1-on-1's, but have noticed weird shooting from wide players and ignoring simple passing options, like ignoring striker even when pass to him is really simple.

game in general looks really nice, as well as new stuff i've spoted. well done to everybody at SI. i don't doubt most of issues will be fixed.

Oh a couple more negatives.

- During my friendly, Virgil van Dijk, who was playing for the opponents Liverpool, became overwhelmed by the pressure (in a friendly). Within a few minutes and with Liverpool winning, in a friendly I would like to repeat, the entire Liverpool team became overwhelmed by the pressure. Huh?

- Transfer offers for you players. You still get 4 or 5 offers that are exactly the same from different clubs, and often (too often) non negotiable.

Okay, something weird has happened. I won my Europa League group and I should qualify for first knockout round, right? Well, no, I got straight to second knockout round (seems like teams from P1 got to second round and teams that finished second in the group got to play round one). It gets even more interesting, as there is only one match, no second leg. So I wonder, is it a bug or are there going to be some rules changes?
