Found a first potential gem.. end of contract from the reserves of PSG. he scores 68% on the DC role and has a good personality.  I'm requesting a picture for him because their isn't  one in the face packs. I'll  show  him afterwards 

ffcb032f906fc5c16875076455387d7d.png
Joining for free , he'll be a backup DC and he has a good personality. I found him after scouting him and putting his attributes in my excel.

His DC and Physical rating are good enough to give him a chance . His average development personality is a good experiment.

He looks good and should also be a goal threat. Would be nice to have a PSG outcast develop into a solid player for you.

Muamba the new DC needs some serious work in positioning. Otherwise looks like a good pickup. In the early going Spot duty only.

Yes it is. would love to get more of those players .. PSG isn't  giving a lot of their own youth a chance..  let them produce and develop them.. I'll try to steal and fine tune  them.

Mercenary good for development....I get rid of those as fast as possible. Try to mentor them if possible otherwise gone. Too much trouble on the contract front.

This early investigation from @Mikaelinho shows that (only one player) had some ok development with mercenary personality

Almost youth intake day for me but almost all the other ligue 1 and 2 got them already.. I saw a lot of Ile de france born players in their squads and i'll try to scout them asap.

Merceranies, in my opinion, are hyper ambitious players.  As a youth, they want to develop their game as quickly as possible so they can move on to a better situation either being a better club, better contract or both.  They will hit their ceiling sooner than most.  But that's just my opinion, I don't have any data to back that up.

So if you can improve their personalities af the end of their 2-3 year development, you could have something good ? First years improving at high pace and then improving their personalty for their senior period.

First big win !

 Really happy with the win against Marseille. Against Lyon we deserved to lose but we played with ten after 55 minutes.

Top 7 is the ambition now.  Psg are not really dominating.

Libero Kanté is the player of the month. He scored against Marseille at his comeback after a nasty 3 month injury.

Great progress, and a great win over OM. The central defender I wanted to sign in the summer (who wanted twice the wage I would pay, then joined Rennes for a wage I offered him previously) insisted on being played as a libero if he signed for me. In a flat back four (I'm on 4312 this season) that might have ruined my whole set-up, but yours has been doing exceptionally well.

You could.  Probably depends on their hidden attributes/media-handling style.

 Island of France - Une Ambition Capitale !

Class 2021 - Youth intake !

10 of 16 youth intake players are from île de France. A nice mix of personalties. Let's calculate and rank them now.
  61a0f8e87e8b093be123b900fb0f6d0a.png
 I signed all the players for my experiments / tracking (as promised @_Ben_ ) and I ranked them on Overall attributes rating(s).

Top 3 players :

Mohamed Guèye - Landry Colin - Ibrahima Soumah

Forget one player who should have got the B tag.. i gave him the B+ tag : Nouredinne Belhajjam

Don't know what to expect from this intake. i'll monitor them for three years and try to focus on all of them.

Youth classes tracker

39185ba1ecf021fbd13129b9d5e9cb68.png
 
This was the class of 2020 . The second youth intake gave me better personalities , a higher average DNA , overall and role rating .

Youth development tracker

e4f404ff7e1f720d2a1b2c84d258be84.png

Top 15 youth intake players (ranked on their overall rating at the intake) 10 players of the second class are entering the top 15 with M.Guèye taking the first spot. Doesn't mean anything for the future because one of the best players from the first intake would only be on the 21t place in this list.. he seems to be a quick and good learner.

 

 

Next update : Show the progress of the first Class (2020).

  1fa24cc89083405d5a4379364ae06ff2.png

Only signed 11 so i can only track those group of players. This class developed ok , with Yann Fabre growing 16,68% , Stéphane Buisset 10,57 % and Arnaud Couturier 9,81% .

 I trained his def.positioning till 14/11/20, i changed this to crossing and i'm going to keep this focus till the end of the season.

54c46dae2cff641c8bad13be28c110ce.png
e2332fec06bcf3d19dda86d212d2deef.png
Changed his focus on passing( technique,vision and passing should be improved in the next months)

b5cf4a136cc7da16546f468c10b62efd.png
ac2e306ebcf48eb9d2235fe61cd4304f.png
I'm going to focus on his quickness because he lacks pace.

At the moment we have Fabre and Lallemant in the b squad, Fabre has a small chance of getting into the first team as a backup for the wingback Left position. He is not good enough but i have a right wingback that can play at the left and i want to see if this promotion pushes his development even more.

Early days but this is the average overall growth from class 2020 for each personalty.

Great analysis just went through it. 

Yes maybe Fabre could be given a bit part role in your senior squad soon. 

From the new lot Colin looks exciting his physicals are decent all round and gotta love that dribbling. Also I noticed he has a professional personality which is pretty rare for the first few intakes. 

BTW media friendly is a positive trait?

Thanks

 

I'm going to make a advanced  forward  from Colin. 

I'll retrain a lot of those players. for example Sylla. he isn't good overall but scores very high at the pressing forward role .

Media friendly  isn't  a good or bad trait. no contribution to Ambition- Professionalism or determination.

 I'll have to retrain most of the players from the last youth intake. Can't do anything with wingers,and one of the DL's looks to be a good DC.. (left new positions / right old positions) .

Angers 14th , Monaco 6th, Nimes 10th, Nantes 11th, Bordeaux 16th, Brest 15th, Montpellier 17th, Saint Etienne 9th .

Should pick up enough points for at least top 7 ?

Paris FC should be top 7 if you take 16 of the 24points.

That is my rule of thumb: average 2 points per match for the season and win a trophy or there about. (So Ligue1 38 matches=76 points)  PSG ruins the title win percentage though. It works for most leagues most years.

Yes definitely going to need a lot more than 76 points in Ligue 1!

Good luck for the run in, it's also good that the two toughish fixtures are both at home.

Before i play the final games of the season, i'm already looking to replace the staff with 'worse' personalties and look for good or superb personalties Postive Pers.

Already signed this Director of Football. he was DoF at a lower league team and is a former Lyon scout & coach. Model citizen ! Had to pay my current DoF Hébert( Fairly pro) 18k to cancel his contract.

Just found out that the 'league cup' - Coupe de la Ligue is canceled. So i took it out of my spreadsheets. Not really happy about this, because it was a cup for youngsters.

Your new DOF looks good for you. It seems odd seeing Kit Symons and a random Jamaican guy in the staff. I guess the latter is enjoying living in the land of the common people...

 Island of France - Une Ambition Capitale !

Season 2 - April 2020

Bad month !

8d9d994dd2ebb89a84ab4d320b345e83.png

Money time.. not Paris FC time at the moment. We gave away a 0-2 lead against Amiens in the 93th minute and a 2-0 lead against Monaco. I'm glad we won against Nantes with a late goal from libero Kanté.

83e2f4bdacbcf960f30bc471b630fcaa.png
 Finishing 5th or 6th is a big difference. 5th is automatic europa league group stage and 11m prize money, 6th is europa conference league playoffs (PSG won the cup) and 9.65m prize money.

  • Marseille : Amiens A (19th), Angers H (14th), Monaco A (6th), Nimes H (10th)
  • Paris FC : Bordeaux A (16th) , Brest H (15th) , Montpellier A (17th), Saint-étienne H (8th)
  • Monaco : Rennes H (9th), Dijon A (20th), Marseille H (4th), Lyon A (2th)
  • Lille : Brest A (15th), Montpellier H (17th), Saint-Etienne A (8th), PSG H (1th)

59510540f1e6d1b16c831cf714bb8fbf.png
This looks good but i want more but we need to find our good form again.

Romain Armand again player of the month . Scoring his 9th goal and 7th assist this season.

Lamine Diaby Fadiga

July 2019 - March 2020 and May 2021

e4cc64dcbec3ec11babd7bd16917eca1.png
Improved his dna with 3.18 , his technical attributes with 6, mental with +- 4 , physical with 6 . Overall improvement of 5 and role improvement of 6.67 , he is starting to become a really good targetman or advanced forward.

862ad08ded64a2935735f90bb9f008b3.png
Trained him on ball control and planning to do so till next pre season.

6f4ae2660e620e19ba6b5188f47439f1.png

Overall progress looks fine. His determination dropped with '2' that could be a problem.  Still some things that could and should improve.

e318f297dd19bab0299eb9c38b22d49c.png
His personalty improved from balanced to Fairly Ambitious.

 

Facts:

  • He started in 31 Ligue 1 games , scored 12 and assisted 5.
  • Personality changed positive this time.
  • He improved again.
  • Player trait learned : 90c5bfd3b8731dfb0aac3f66ba000cd4.png

Is Fadiga's lack of goals due to super marking CB's?  

Aye might be a lost cause as far as changing his personality.

I must admit I would also be worried if one of my best prospect strikers only had two goals and five assists in 31 league games.

Players in my 2nd Team and Under 19 side show attribute improvements due to my coaches, but would be nowhere near the first team if performances on the pitch don't back that up. I've had it with Tapsoba (who should have been in the senior squad but was not prolific in the 2nd Team) and Toure (who was prolific in the Under 19 side for two years but could not score in the 2nd Team).

Both are now out on loan as I want to see how they get on starting for senior teams elsewhere (so far, very average form for both).

You know, I have long thought that players are too proficient with the weak foot in the FM match engine, which coupled with the huge amount of CA points assigned to having a strong weaker foot, essentially means that two-footed players are worse off. 

I did a couple of posts on this earlier in the general forum but was always told that it is not the case.
