That might be it. Still, i hope i will get the option to build new stadium soon. Thanks a lot for the answer.

Does the club own the stadium? If renting, it might not be possible to get it expanded?

FM20 ought to be remembered as the year we got Club Vision, an outstanding feature, that for me personally has removed many obstacles to long term saves. (If only we could make newgens look human.......)

Instead, it's almost certainly going to be remembered as the release where we waited until the New Year for the 3-4 significant ME issues to be addressed. Of which,  1 v 1 is arguably the most significant.

Thats a genuine shame.

On a related note to this:

 

Looking around various FM communities it's apparent that nobody has found a set-piece-to-the-rescue™ exploit yet. The frustration threads, which were practically dead last year, pick up on some traffic again. Numerous guys posting Matches with as much as 23-25 SOT and but a single goal. With the set piece exploits of FM 19 (Long throw, Corner), at least 1 - 2 would have found the back of the net. However, not so much this time. Everybody is talking 1vs1s, but the actual long-term "Issue" is how easy it is to get SOT from the set piece. 

This has been going on since at LEAST FM 2015, and it naturally creates frustration even when looking at the shot map: "Look how many shots I have right in front of the goal!" Too bad that 90% of them are pressured headers from the set piece, and as such not that oftenly converted into Goals. Plus, where is the assistant pointing this out: "Boss, it seems we aren't playing Football, but set piece ball as they get a foot into all of our play!" 

Doesn't help that the most popular tactics shared encourage the opposition to be able to do just that… just as usual. If the AI were actually smart, it would do it even more oftenly.

If newgens will look like charachters of Minecraft it will suit me, provided in 30-40+ seasons later DB will comparable with IRL of first season. When I tested this last time, newgens still had problems with PA realization. Attributtes balance looks more logic less random but can't say this issue fixed. It was first impression only. Just few top CB for all world, not like Nesta, Chiellini or van Dijk, its even about just few CB like Laporte or Marquinhos etc

These pin-point long balls over the top of my centre backs heads leading to a one-on-one opportunity are killing my save, I literally can’t keep a clean sheet. And I’ve got quality defenders too.

Has anyone found a way to soften this blow (maybe play a sweeper, both CBs on cover, lower DL etc)? Or are we stuck with this ME trait until it’s patched out? 

Cheers & Merry Christmas!

I've a problem with the resolution of the screen, since it is not adjusted every time I start the game and the position of the buttons does not match the image of them something very annoying.
I use a resolution lower than that of my monitor to increase the font size due to my visual problems.

Higher Line saw this happen for me at times in the season I just played, but I also finished the season with the least conceded in the league through playing possession based football (59% average possession over 38 games). 19 goals from set plays, and 13 of those from corners. 

Its always a risk if your defence are playing higher, never mind their attributes. My guess is you're getting this through playing a really specific way, but it's hard to advise without knowing your team really. Possession based might not be for you.

Really? You chose to post this, as the example of the ME's problem with long balls?

Your team was in transition, your defenders expected to be in possession for a bit more, being out of position when the team suddenly loses the ball is something that happens.

I'm absolutely not saying there are no problems with the AI (although I've been toying around with the demo, and thinking about buying, 'cause right now it feels better than ever in the last few years), I'm just saying that some people are being unreasonable, and almost hysterical here.

Also, please, there are so many ways now to record your screen in a not prehistoric way...

De Verdad? ¿Elegiste publicar esto, como el ejemplo del problema del ME con bolas largas?

Su equipo estaba en transición, sus defensores esperaban estar en posesión un poco más, estar fuera de posición cuando el equipo pierde repentinamente el balón es algo que sucede.

No estoy diciendo que no haya problemas con la IA (aunque he estado jugando con la demostración y pensando en comprar, porque en este momento se siente mejor que nunca en los últimos años), solo estoy diciendo que algunas personas no son razonables y casi histéricas aquí.

Además, por favor, ahora hay muchas maneras de grabar su pantalla de una manera no prehistórica ...

it is because of the non-existent reaction of the GK

I can live with one-on-ones perhaps not being where they should be. What I don't understand is why my fullbacks ignore their instructions to cross. I went back to FM 18 to make sure I can actually control this and, indeed, in FM 18 my fullbacks can cross often if told to do so. But in FM 20 they rarely do it even when they are asked to cross more often. I can forgive ME mistakes, but I can't forgive my players simply not doing what I tell them to. It's FM 18 for the time being, even though FM 20 is for the most part the better engine.

My experience with FM 2020: Conceding 25-30 yard goals from opposition midfielders whilst my strikers miss EVERY 1v1 opportunity. Not fun.

Add to that a couple Header goals from the Corner, and a couple less 1vs1s with patched defending; and you'd have a fairly accurate getting Pep'd Simulator 2019, of course. :D

Tongue in cheekish, mind. But personally considering the nature of most his point drops, if this Season would start all over, I'd bet on that the table would look closer than it does now.

I'm really struggling to play this game at the moment. The lag on the 3D engine is absolutely horrific right now. I managed to fiddle around for ages with settings to get it looking slightly smooth, but as soon as I load the game back up for a new session, it's back to being a laggy mess. And it now doesn't matter if I'm playing online or offline. 

Any previous version of the game (inc the laggy 19 version) is running very smoothly, but this is ridiculous. 

I've had to switch back to 2D for the games to be even watchable, but even that's lagging now. 

This should never be a thing in a game whose graphics engine is primitive to say the least. My laptop can run FIFA smoothly, so there's really no excuse for this.

Out of interest, did this regress with the last patch? My 3d has been great for all previous versions including the beta of FM20 but since release it's pretty poor, not as bad as yours sounds though.

I'd like to reiterate this, my overriding mood on release of a new patch is one of fear, fear of something thats currently working, ceasing to do so. That shouldn't be happening, especially when using a modern high spec machine.

I'm seeing it far too often, with different variants of tactics and different teams for it not to be an ME trait. Actually back-tracking through this thread, and looking through the forum, the pin-point long balls has cropped up by many different users.

It's getting so frustrating, literally 2-0 in my last game with 4 minutes injury time to go (moved to my defensive set up to see the game out), minutes 80-90 passed without a whimper and then two long balls over the top (91 and 94mins) ended the game at 2-2. It's not just the fact it's long balls, it's not like it's Beckham dropped them over the top, it's Diego Godin (a centre-back) twice with his 11 passing stat (and 76% passing accuracy for the game) floating two pin-point balls over the top like a reincarnated Pirlo, one of them was on the half-turn, you'd need eyes in the back of your head to see that kind of pass. It's like the defenders freeze and don't react until it's too late.

Think I'll give this up until there is a patch, it's just not enjoyable.

Yes, it was generally alright before the last update. I don't know if the amount of active users playing the game has anything to do with it, because FM19 was pretty laggy too, but now it's super smooth, and obviously there's thousands less people playing it now.

I see a reaction, an unconfident, awkward attempt to constrict the space available for the attacker.

Yeah, he doesn't close down properly, and there is no diving at the shot, but I can honestly easily imagine an unsure keepr doing something like this IRL.

You could try these...

1. Nividia Control Panel

*-Power management mode - Prefer maximum performance
*-Threaded optimization - ON
*-Triple buffering - Off
*- Vertical Sync - Fast

2.  In the match settings 

* Shadows - Off

* (only if still lag) - Crowd quality - Low

I think I've tried those already but I'll give it another go, thanks. 

What really kills it is when it rains. I remember in past FMs, there was an option to turn weather off, but it's not in this game. Can that be done via the editor for a future save does anyone know?

I'm happy to see that ai stopped to spam me the same transfer offers. I set high value and clubs no more set me offers just as I planned. For another player was club with real interest so I set clause price for him and finally ai use this clause. Despite this price higher of his market price in almost 10 times, but he has some potential. So cool, much better templates of prev editions

LOVE that you've added the feature to talk to the board when a transfer is agreed but you're a few million short - removes that years old frustration where you sum all the offers you make and a signing on fee throws your strategy out by a few mill! I'm sure there's a flip side (maybe depending on how flexible the owners are?), but if i can get Ed Woodward to part with extra cash then it must be pretty lenient right? :)

My board have agreed three times this season to sign a player I've wanted, and each time they've made a mess of the contract talks, so it's broken down. I'd like to have an option of just saying to the board 'finance the deal please, but I'll deal with the contract, ok?'

Actual Playing Time: Star Player

Agreed Playing Time: Star Player

Feels Alienated due the lack of game time he has been getting.

 

That really sums up FM lately, the code is so messed up that you use 10 different calculations for the same thing, so the game can both say the player isn't getting star player playing time at the same time it's saying that he is.

Are you asking them to sign the player outright that way? I haven't done that, no way would I trust Ed with that, he'd have Djimi Traore out of retirement on 300kp/w whether I liked it or not! :D

 

It's more I do the negotiations, the contract and when I come to buy I don't have enough - in years past I'd have to delay until cancellation (or I manage to sell someone); this year I could say to the board "this is an important xfer/sorry for spending too much" and they agreed and gave me the extra I needed. Means my xfer budget is now nil, but I'm super stoked as I got one of those rare summer windows where you get everyone off 'plan A' (and it wasn't ruined by greedy ass agents!)

This happens if you've had an issue with the player beforehand. It takes longer for the player to stop feeling alienated than it does for the agreed playing time to update. This is because the player wants to continue at the agreed playing time for longer before he fully trusts you again.

This is a long overdue feature thats been desperately missing. I've long said you shouldn't be missing out on a signing if you're ten bob short. :lol:

It is a different scenario but as you say, the option to ask the board to make a signing (which I have done successfully) should come with an option to handle the contract/playing time element yourself.

He played 37(2) matches, highest in the squad actually, so he played at least one match pr. week and at times two matches pr. week. He played in 12 out of 13 Champions Cup matches including the final.

 

The GK is sitting at 50 matches, but he plays in domestic cups, that doesn't count as real playing time.

Does anyone noticed the next thing...?

The 1 on 1 and penalty missing stuff is known and under review so thats good. But i have the feeling the problem lies at the Gk's who are just very overpowered. Missing the 1 on 1's is crazy, the Gk's are like beasts all the time. You could think about
the attackers may be the noobs, but if you look at the missing penalties you see the Gk's beasting there too. So i really think there was an error where the long balls were too easy and attackers scored too much in the prototype testing and so they 
just overpowered the goalkeepers to balance it and at the end it went like crazy to other way lol. 

But hopefully they will fix this soon and get a balance in the game.

Yes and in real life shots what are fired to goalies legs are often very dangerous and hardest to save. In this game those shots never go in.

I don't understand why the "Interest in role" descriptor was removed from the staff contract negotiation screen this year. In prev FM versions you could gauge their interest in being e.g. Assistant Manager ("Delighted with this"), DoF ("Incredibly interested"), Scout ("Unsure"), Fitness Coach ("No interest") etc. But now with no feedback to go off of you just have to guess based on their Staff Role Suitability.

So Donnarumma is currently earning £180k p/w, so I go to renew his deal, he rejects as I can only offer £155k p/w, even when adjusting my budget.

So I ask my DoF to have a go at renewing his deal, which he does successfully for £175k p/w (with similar extras too to his existing deal).

Why couldn’t I renew but my DoF could?

Don't know officially but they have an attribute for negotiating deals now, might have a better relationship with him than you (long term perspective that is), managers dont usually negotiate much anymore at top levels so that might be a factor? 

If the AI can negotiate better using the attribute given then thats a very useful tool and it means it's working "Properly".

Do managers get a negotiating attribute or a hidden one of it?

That could explain it, I'm not complaining, just glad he signed up as I wasn't able to do it. I was more curious as to why I could only offer £155k p/w but the DoF went to £175k p/w.

I'm not sure about managers having a hidden stat, but it would make sense to have one.

I mean if you're restrcited but the DOF isn't then that would be a problem. Just watched a stream with a similar thing and he just changed it to all the negotiating to the staff. There is a bug that reverts responsibilities back to default *allegedly*
