A number of my players are complaining about the individual training i have assigned them to, they say it is not beneficial. For example I am trying to get smalling to improve his passing, but he claims that this is not beneficial, I find this baffling because passing is clearly the weakest area of his game so how can he claim that passing training is not beneficial, this makes no sense. Even more annoying is that there is no option to interact with the player to explain why you have given him that training regime, your only option is to take him off the training or you are stuck with an unhappy player. I didn't have this problem in previous FM games, is there any way around this???
what the hell is wrong with west brom, just let him go you muppets, that is a more then generous offer, i don't understand why they are being so stubborn about it...
i am convinced that sometimes the game just decides not to let you win on a particular day, i find myself many times shouting at my strikers ''how can you miss that you absolute weapon, how many chances do you need''. my other half thinks i am mad, she's always asking me why i keep playing the game when it annoys me so much
Season long loan deals cannot be recalled unless you are in a transfer window. Also any loan where the team has paid a fee upfront prevents you from recalling the player.

thanks for repeating what i already said in the post directly above yours...
Alright guys,

I'm in limbo over what to do in my future FM career. I've just finished the end of the 3rd season with Blackburn Rovers.

1st season - Playoff semi - Lost
2nd season - won league & promoted to premiership
3rd season - relegated - finished 19th,back down to Championship.

It's summer, & i applied for the Uruguay job and got it, i'm just currently in the group stages of world cup and have won 2 out of 2. My reputation is average and probably what is expected for a Blackburn Rovers manager. I feel like i don't want to manage in the championship and don't know whether to resign or just stick it out for a while longer & see what i can do in the future?

My bank balance is healthy at £40m & a few stars such as Ravel Morrison will fetch me £8/£9m yet too..

LIMBO!!

if i were you i would stay with blackburn and try to establish them in the premier league, you have a very nice transfer budget to work with so you should be able to bring in some good players that can compete at prem level, learn from the mistakes you made the season you got relegated...
We've all been there. Player is unhappy, and wants to leave. Offer him for transfer for silly money, and no offers.

Then you see the box - Ask <player> to speak to clubs.

Click it, and have a player interaction telling the player to look for a new club.

Only

has it ever actually worked? I've never said that to a player, and they've come back and said they've found a new club, or a club has made an offer based on the player or agent contacting them.

So why is it in the game? What's the point?

i agree with you, it doesn't seem to do anything, i have used it many times and not once has an offer from another club been forthcoming, i just have to keep lowering the price until clubs make an offer. i suppose the idea is that the players agent will go to different clubs offering him around, but if i have already offered him out to clubs myself then what difference is that going to make, its an odd one for sure...
RB Salzburg have great resources and as such should generate a healthy youth team. plus they must have some disgruntled second stringers you can take advantage of. I would be happy with them as a parent club as a lower team.

but he can't get promoted, he's stuck in the lower league...

for all intents and purposes fc liefering are red bull's b team, just like barcelona have a b team that are not allowed to play in the same division, so no, there is nothing you can do about that unless you use the editor. you can remove the ''cannot play in the same division'' clause by using the editor i believe, that is your only option i think.

disgraceful performance, thats as bad as we have been all season, looked like we didn't want to win the game and were happy to take a 0-0...
So I typically play a standard 4-4-2 with my teams, especially lower league, simple and easy to understand. I usually go with a ball winning midfielder role (on defend) and a centre midfielder role (on support) as my middle two.

My issue is that I find the ball winning midfielder picks up a huge (and I mean huge) amount of yellow cards throughout a season, and is sent off quite frequently! It's the only position in the team that seems to collect cards for fun, whichever player I put in there. On my current save, I've had my 1st choice in the role pick up 16 bookings and 3 red cards, which has totalled roughly 11 games suspended for him!

The other lads I put in there also tend to reach at least 10 yellows a season.

Anyone else have this issue and what have you done to reduce the cards? Or is there a simple way I can try to reduce the number of cards (whilst still keeping the role as Ball Winning Midfielder)? The player instruction doesn't allow me to change the tackling instruction.

why would you want to change the tackling instruction, if you did that he wouldn't be a ball winning midfielder anymore, if its not working for you then pick another role, theres plenty to choose from. one thing to take into account is the tackling attribute of the player, you want as high a tackling attribute as possible for a ball winning midfielder, if you have a player with low tackling attribute in that role he is more likely to mistime tackles and commit fouls, and that means more cards. this is more likely to happen in lower leagues when you have players with much lower attributes, so you should perhaps not use that role in lower leagues.
hey stephen, don't i recognise you from full time devils, i am a long time follower of that channel. nice to see you on this forum dude, good luck with the playthrough

Do you find that makes a big difference ??? If so I might have to give it a go

i retrain players to new positions all the time, in my southamption save i retrained wanyama to be a centre back instead, i looked at his attributes and decided he would be much better suited to that role...

I haven't played yet only holidayed and took over a few big clubs to see what their expectations are so not sure. I think they would take into account that they have a transfer ban

ok thanks mate, i am definitely going to give this a go as it looks like a very interesting challenge, thanks for the work you have put into creating this database...

i know basic stuff. but I enjoy sports games period. Its not that I don't like the sport, I just don't watch it here in the states much. I get the basics. I have been playing fm for over 10 years now but usually always downloaded tactics and wanted to get away from that
Not everyone who plays is a fanatic about the game but thanks for telling me who should or should not buy the game. lol

it would of been helpful if you had said in the opening post that you had been playing fm for over 10 years, your opening post made it sound like you were a complete newcomer to the game. when did i say who should or should not play the game, i never said that so please don't try to put words into my mouth that i didn't say silly yank, that is the thanks you get for taking the time to try to help someone. there are plenty of tactical guides for football manager online if you simply use the google search engine, i could be more helpful but after your last rude comment i am not going to give you any assistance whatsoever so you are on your own now...

Season Expectations are fine for example a team like Chelsea are wanting to qualify for the Europa League. Manchester City want a mid table finish. Here is season preview

https://i.gyazo.com/15b28fc49065c9fa236ce9fddea770a3.png

will the board get annoyed with you for failing to strengthen the squad tho, especially at one of the top clubs with big budgets?
interesting idea, the only problem is if your managing a top club, season expectations will be to compete to win the league but after a few years your squad won't really be better then other teams unless you get lucky with youth products, so you will need to be very good tactically to get results and avoid the sack, nice challenge tho...

Honestly I feel like Liverpool could do a lot worse.

klopp likes players with a high rate and shane long really works his socks off, so i could actually see that one happening. klopp has been trying to get benteke to run more without much success
Must be a bug then? Or a strange rule that we're not aware of?


if it is a season long loan then i believe you can only recall the player during the transfer window, if it is a short term loan for like a month for two then you can recall at any time during the loan. also, if you charged the other club an initial fee for the loan like 500k or something then i don't think you can recall him because obviously that wouldn't be fair on the club that paid the fee...
last film i went to the cinema to see was focus, the one with will smith. terrible film, i cannot understand the positive reviews for it. for a film about a con artist the cons were a bit rubbish and very far fetched. also unlike other con movies will smith didn't just target bad guys who deserved it, he was stealing from regular folk, nothing better then a common thief and he was supposed to be the good guy of the film. also the film was very boring with nothing happening for most of it...
i guess you will have to sell a few high earners in january to cut the wage bill to pass ffp, i think you will get points deducted for next season otherwise, i have seen teams get points deducted in my saves. a player on 100k a week earns £4.8 million a year not including bonuses in the contract, so £16 million over is a big amount, 3 or 4 players salaries at least...

the manager of distillery must have a tough job on his hands to stop the players turning up drunk to each game, they are probably getting paid in liquor, no wonder they are in the relegation zone

ok my mistake, the way i look at it if a player was injured at the start of the season in real life it makes sense for him to be injured from the start in the game. also it doesn't feel realistic to have luke shaw available for selection when in real life he is probably out for the season, so if his injury gets added in the jan update that will be fine by me, even tho it will be annoying to have to deal with it in game...
WHAT.......A........GAME............ fantastic entertainment tonight, obviously i am disappointed we didn't win, but its a breath of fresh air to see a game like that...
van gaal keeps blaming our style of football on the lack of pacy wingers in the squad, but he has already had 3 transfer windows to sort that out and spent a fortune in those 3 windows, and now he is into a 4th window. if we still don't have any good wingers after his 4th transfer window at the club and virtually an open cheque book then it is his own fault. also, if he thinks we lack pace why does he keep playing mata on the wing when we have, lingard, depay or even valencia who could play there, i know they are a pretty poor bunch but they couldn't do any worse then mata surely...
seems a bit wierd to not have any injuries in the game, injuries are part and parcel of football, thats why you need a strong squad, but each to your own, you paid your money you can play the game however you like...
imgur is by far the best thing to use mate. it is dead easy to use, no fees and unlimited uploads.

thanks a lot mate, i will try that instead...

can i just ask, what do you guys use to post pics on here, i print screened the pic, pasted it into paint and then uploaded it to photobucket, then i used the link from photobucket. however as you can see the quality of the pic i posted is quite poor, how do you get better quality like the ones others have posted?
