So did it apply to FMTouch? Because I still have a high volume of penalties?

And I disagree with the success rate. I've just had 8 penalties missed in a game.

I would assume that the fix was applied to FM Touch-check the game version as the latest one is 20.1.4

Ref penalties- the fix was applied to referees and their penalty decision making, so had no impact on the players or their abilities to score/miss penalties

As you can see, the penalty kick success rate is too low when compared to real soccer.

Harry Kane, who has a 20 penalty kick attribute, very high rate of composition and goal determination, still misses many penalty kicks, which is really rare in a real life. I want you to seriously consider this.

I'll raise a bug then as I've had 13 penalties across 8 friendlies and the community shield game, which also then ended in a penalty shoot out and the conversion rate is poor (50%), from top penalty takers at top clubs.

I suspect that the Devs will look at stats over a full season and not draw too many conclusions from friendlies and a small sample, but feel free

So, I just scored this goal..

Millot, my WM(A), wins the duel against his opponent and immediately puts it into space on the right wing for my AF, Symons, who picks it up. Symons then skins his opponent, gets to the byline and pulls it back for the oncoming IW(S) to tap it into the back of the net. Lovely stuff!

If only I could access my youtube channel but I keep getting a message that I can't. :(

Should the Euro Cup 2 only give you 5 subs? Currently going through qualifying stages. 

Just had a quick check, it's five in the qualifiers and seven from the group stage onward.

Lovely goal and nice to see the player not blasting it into the side netting.

I'm really enjoying IW's in FM20. Shame I can't get my forward more involved though.

In my third season now and both still listed as rich. I created a new manager to check out Barça's in detail and they're about 50M in the green. Keep in mind that clubs generally run a deficit during the season as the big money (prize money, tv money, sponsorship) usually only comes in at the start and end.

I'm the same, it logged me out of Youtube & I can't get back in

I think from deep, the play is more or less fine, you see some really good play regardless of some terrible player choices 

The problem seems to be in final third when there's bodies in & around the box, play just seems to clog up with a lack of movement in the danger zones. Most of the time if play isn't turned over, it either ends up cleared to just outside the box for a centre mid to hammer home, a tap-in after a penalty box scramble or a set piece. 

I'm simming a full season, just out of interest, Adam Webster was the Prem League top scorer after two games after a hattrick of headers from corners & at 1st January, Aguerro is the top scorer with 12 in 19 with 5 of those being penalties, Aubameyang with 10 in 19 playing wide left & Jordan Ayew with 9 in 18

Kane's on 7 in 20 with one pen, Vardy & Abraham aren't even on the top 20 scorers list

Yeah only 3 out of the top 14 goalscorers in my season are strikers, the rest are midfielders or left wingers.

I'm the same. At first it thought it was because my forward couldn't hit a cows backside with a banjo, but it seems to be the norm in my save for most teams.

I'm making plenty of chances and scoring as well, but most unless I set my forward as a TM and get more balls into the box - he's just not getting involved.

No worries. For the record, in previous versions most Spanish clubs tended to get into financial problems sooner or later. I think it's better now because the sponsorship contracts seem a lot higher, which compensates for their losses.

The reserves and youth teams are under the development tab- if you take charge of either of the teams or their training, they will show up in the left hand pane.

Thank you though this merely requires more clicks to get to where I want.  Not sure why this changed when it wasn't needed.

No idea what problem you were referring to regarding club vision, but the hotfixes were only designed to fix the penalty bug and the determination bug (which you can see in the change logs attached to the fixes).

Hi,

So I see a lot of negativity in these forums and just want to submit a different kinda post. That's right, a praising Football Manager 2020 post!

The Match Engine has improved dramatically this year. Instructions you give to players are being followed correctly eg. I am now seeing through balls from the midfield being executed with perfection after I instructed them to 'take more risks'.

Anyway, thank you SI and FM for giving us an awesome game this year.

 

What are everybody else's thoughts?

 

Thanks,

LDP

Just had my first penalty shoot out this season in Round 1 of the Carabao Cup. I played mainly my fringe players and u23s and there were 11 scored out of 14.

I beat Chelsea 1-0 as Manchester City on the 9th of November

I got a C+ because FM claims that Chelsea are a supposedly an inferior team and I should've beaten them by a higher margin.

I agree, I’m really enjoying the game a lot this year. The ME is getting better and better. 

I also really like the UI and everything just seems a lot smoother. 

There’s also a lot of little things I like, such as, a player accepted to come play for me cos of my league position and didn’t automatically go to another club cos they are already in Europe.. I haven’t picked up FM since FM18 so I’m enjoying a lot of nice little touches like this, I’m pretty sure I’d never have stood a chance for the player in FM18. 

I’m really struggling to find anything to complain about in the game and I’m enjoying getting to grips with it all. 

Excellent job to the developers 👍👍👍👍

I’m really enjoying the game but I am definitely seeing too low an amount of through ball ATTEMPTS. I don’t care if they don’t work often, they shouldn’t, but very few attempts. Maybe it’s a way to keep the goals per game done for the ME.

I am also seeing a few too many long shot goals too. 

My wingers tend to not want to stay out wide whatever I tell them. They cut in so that wingbacks can fly but I’ve not played with tactics enough - could be things like overlapping instructions causing it.

Most importantly maybe, the number of shots per game is too high. Yes I’m United but that doesn’t mean I should hit 40-50 shots at goal against every poorer side I play. Seems totally fine against evenly matched teams. Possession in these games also at 70%+ levels.

After playing a few months on a new save, I can say the match engine is in the best state it was since I started playing the FM series in 2014. The only problem I noticed is the occurrence of shots from the byline, though I prefer seeing the wide shots than the blocked crosses from FM19. Keep up the good work. 

If you manage to fix that, I'll get a tattoo of SI logo.

To add to the positive posts, I am really enjoying the game too. I think the ME is very good. 
The features I bemoaned before the release as minor have really added to my game experience. 

I think you can see SI really trying to polish the game off as a whole. 

I really like the Club Vision and didn't think it would add much to my game experience but it has. 

Also the contract "squad status" feature has made it easier to manage players. Signing a young striker and him knowing he will only be used as a "Fringe player" has been good.

To counter this point, I dislike that when negotiating with players they often demand to be more involved in future years. I signed someone who was happy to be a squad player in his first season, in the 2nd wanted to be first team, and 3rd wanted to be a key player. 

I guess that can be a real life situation but I wasn't able to negotiate and have him as a squad player for 2 years then first team etc. 

I guess when I get further into the save I'll find out if he is unhappy with still being treated as a squad player. 

It's only a minor thing and might not even be that important but it still seemed a bit strange.

I'm rarely seeing through balls in my game most Goals come from wing play or set pieces also seeing a load of rebound goals I agree though it's improving from 2019 still think a few improvement are needed especially in the attacking positions

One thing I'm getting from this years release is a bizarre amount of inconsistency against certain teams.  Beat Barcelona 3-0 as Newcastle in the Champions League using a possession based tactic, next week get thrashed 3-1 by a Championship team in the League Cup.  I still won the possession battle (just!) but they had like 30 shots and 15 on target compared to my 12 shots with 3 on target.  I'm beating teams like Spurs and Man Utd regularly, and drawing or playing a spirited loss against Man City and Liverpool.  

It's not just the championship team; this year certain teams are just destroying me every single game as if my players have forgotten how to play.  West Ham, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace.  Their pressing just seems to be an order of magnitude more skilled and more eager and more successful than anything I can get my more skilled players to do.  I really have no idea what is going on, compared to FM19 where I could generally tell why I wasn't performing against a team.  This year certain teams just feel like they have an invisible stat boost sometimes.

 

EDIT: And AML/R's shooting into the side of the net at the byline absolutely needs to be fixed.  It happens about 4-6 times a game for me, without fail.  Dribbling in general seems a little overtuned in my opinion because if they fixed the wingers to cutback passes to the strikers instead of shooting we'd end up with games with silly final scores because of how often and how easily skilled dribblers can break from a corner and run all the way up the pitch, skin the last two defenders and slam the ball into the side netting.  Defending (esp. against dribbling and anyone with any pace at all) and shooting seem a little bit weak right now leading to a lot of frustration when watching the ME.
