Red Cards

Hi Vibe,

Sorry if this is in the wrong section but I've found what seems to me a pretty flawed problem with this game. Before I elaborate I just want to add I've been playing all FM Handheld games since 2007 and I've never noticed any inconsistencies until now. I'm just querying to see if anybody else has any issues surrounding red cards within the game. The reason for this is because numerous times in my save (FC United of Manchester -> Atalanta) I've played teams who've had players sent off but nothing's changed in the game to suggest that it's a massive moment. The opposition don't tweak their starting XI (unless it's their GK who's sent off) and I'm consistently unable to press home any kind of advantage. I've tried changing my formation (traditionally always play an attacking 4-2-3-1), making changes of my own, even been patient and changed nothing to see if that would help and nothing has worked. I find that despite having to play with a man less the opposition doesn't become more fatigued and it's just becoming incredibly frustrating to have to treat the occasion like it's a normal game when in reality we should dominate possession, create chances and play better as a whole. On the flip side when I get a red card I find that there usually is a reaction from the AI and unless I park the bus I find it very difficult to get a result.

What tipped me over the edge was my most recent game; an Italian Cup QF against Fiorentina. They had 2 players sent off after 30 minutes yet went on to win 1-0 - but they didn't just win, they were by far the better team. They had more possession, more shots and more clear chances. In my opinion it's not right. Fiorentina's best XI does beat mine however I'm above them in the league so it's not as if I'm completely inferior to them. I can't put my finger on how or why this keeps happening so do any of you guys have similar issues? If not, what do you do if the opposition gets a red card? Stick or twist? Cheers for reading.

Hello,

Usually I get the red cards. When the other team gets one (never more than 1), I don't change anything but I can't see any change in the possession : If I'm leading in the possession I keep the lead and in the other way too.

Although, once, I got a red card and was losing 1 - 0. My players succeeded in winning 2 - 1 at the end. I was happy but I think that was just luck. Or random.

I'll try to change my tactic the next time the opponent gets a red. I'll let you know how it went.

I have always thought of it this way. A game is a game, and for me in FMM only the result matters. I stopped viewing the stats when I lost 0-4 to Leeds with Man City(I was a bit happy) and I had almost 29 shots. 23 on target. Leeds had 8 shots and 4 on target. I stopped viewing stats. I just overlook topics in Vibe where people are complaining about things such as this. I thought that why not tell you that as much as you should look at stats, you shouldn't. With these random match engines it makes my blood boil. Though much improved this year, but my habit is now a habit. So, if you are getting such things I would say overlook it and look forward to the final score. Do look at the stats, but if something weird comes up just overlook it.

as for the red cards problem, the thing is the match engine. It still has a few bugs then. I have noticed it. 2 red cards for the other team and they managed to triumph  5-3. I had 3 at half time. Only then the red cards came. But after a few tweaks, you do manage a handicap game( meaning, you do get a fair games with the red cards cpmaking sense) but the tactical changes are for me random. What I normally do is clear then pick team. After the red card I will go to a thought out team. It normally works but in 45% matches it still is not a handicap game) most of the time it continues in the oppositions favour and a very small percentage, It stays as a 11 v 11 game

hope I helped
