  1. Well, it didn't work. Guess its a bug.
  2. Have you updated your game to the latest version? In my current career each of my three coaches has some players they are influencing, and they are two silvers and one gold.
  3. Perhaps. It doesn't fit the rules I quoted properly - Only 2 of my 5 foreigners are AFC as I have one each from the Netherlands, Uzbekistan, Romania, Australia and Serbia. But it could just be doing 5 period. I'm trying to shift the Romanian now so the test will be to try to re-sign one of the players I had rejected and see what happens.
  4. That was my experience but South Korea appears different. For example I tried to buy a Moroccan youngster rated 5 star for potential by my scout. No dice. I tried to sign a Rwandan youngster with 9 caps to his name - another one found by my scout. Again no dice. Admittedly Rwanda is not a big footballing nation so maybe that's why? I do only have 5 foreigners in my team and have never had more. It just seems a strange coincidence. Edit to add: I also tried to sign a couple of uncapped Brazilians, for 7 figure sums. Theyre not capped so again maybe thats why, but on the other hand there are a number of uncapped Brazilians in the league so something's not right.
  5. Does anyone know how the work permits rules work in South Korea in game? I have been playing a career in South Korea and am yet to successfully sign any foreign player except from another club in South Korea. When playing UK based careers hiring an attorney to appeal the decision often works but every time it fails so far in Korea. In real life South Korea has a maximum foreignors in squad rule. 5 max, 3 have to be from an AFC country with of those from an ASEAN country, with two free hits from anywhere. So I wondered if this is the games way of implementing that rule on me. However, other clubs in the league have a far wider range of foreignors (and I've checked - no dual nationality). I wonder if its just a bug - but does anyone know how the rules are meant to work in game?
  6. Well it makes sense. Tbf I haven't yet noticed any difference in the role the game recommends for a player being affected by me nominating a different role for them in training. But makes sense to concentrate your players on the attributes those roles need. I'd say the actual position of the player is most important. E.g. I had a regen come through who is natural DMC and accomplished MC and MR. I don't utilise a DMC so I got him trained on being natural MC. Once that happened the game changed his recommended role from BWM to DLP without me even asking him to be a DLP. I guess my conclusion is I'm not sure. Its still relatively new this system so I'm not sure what we yet know.
  7. Assistant will probably do what they think is best rather than match your tactics so you may want to get more involved. I tend to just check them every few game months.
  8. I am currently playing a career with a 4231. Gk, WB, CD, BPD, WB, DLP, DLP, W/IF, AP/SS, W/AF, P. I will typically line up attacking, narrow width, slow tempo and balanced creativity. Balanced defensive line, closing down own half, normal tackling, offside trap, no time wasting, attacking: overlap, shoot on sight, through balls, short passing, mixed passing focus, short gk passing. Teams increasingly line up a 433 against me even if its not their normal game and its super effective. I don't really have the players to pick a different formation, especially when the team lines out with the 433 unexpectedly. I've tried a more defensive mentality and changing WBs to DFBs, but its just not helping. Please can anyone suggest how to deal with the 433? Preferably without changing formation.
  9. Just bought fmm19 after sticking with fmm18 and have been really struggling to make anything work so far. Turned to this tactic and it seems to be hitting the spot, thank you!
  10. Thanks for your input. Yes I am playing fmm18 rather than 19. I guess maybe i should try a career where I avoid changing the training just to see what happens. I don't see improvement from a lot of young players but clearly I need to use them more!
  11. Apologies if making a new topic isn't the right thing to do, but i couldn't see anything relevant except something from 5 years ago. I've always found no success in developing young players. Aside from the intensive training I mean. So a young player is promoted and perhaps has 3 stars by coach for potential - could make a squad player. But I never see an attribute increase, whether they sit in the reserves on intensive training, or they go out on loan and play. To be honest I haven't really played young players who are clearly worse than the alternatives because I figure the attributes show the level of ability demonstrated in training and I generally want to pick my strongest team - but maybe this approach needs to be changed. I saw on an old article linked in the beginner's guide thread and example of how Julian Draxler developed in different scenarios. In both reserves and loan scenarios, the stats increased, but in one the underlying ca increased and the other didn't. So I'm finding that rather confusing. How can we look at a player without an editor to work out if they are improving? Are their attributes always going to stay broadly the same? As that seems to be my experience outside of intensive training.
  12. Just to feed back on this. Experimented with different combinations and found varied success. Think its as much down to the players I had as anything. I pretty much settled on two bbms and a bwm, with ap in front as that suited the players with the best attributes, but also had success playing one of the bbms as a dlp at times. Its been a successful season. After a shaky start which saw us (UCD) dumped out of the leinster cup in the 1st round and too many drawn league games, we rallied and form improved. Summer transfer window rolled along and i was able to make a huge number of significant signings to improve the quality of the squad, particularly in midfield, although did lose my goal a game striker to Blackburn. Just in time for the gruelling champions league qualifying rounds in which i saw off the champions of Romania (cfr cluj), Bosnia (zrinjski), Croatia (Dinamo Zagreb) and finally Czech Republic (slavia Prague) to qualify for the group stage. Included a 5-1 win in Prague. Also went on a long winning streak in the league. First game in champs league was a trip to Camp Nou in which we lost 4-2, then grabbed our first ever group stage win at home to Napoli. We managed to secure home draws to PSV and Barcelona, but being unbeaten at home wasn't enough to avoid finishing bottom of the group as we lost all of our away games. All in all, a european campaign far exceeding expectations and a domestic treble means that whatever I did in midfield worked well enough! Now to decide whether I persist in Ireland having won everything there is to win domestically, or to move on to a new challenge. Setting my eyes on taking another small team from obscurity to domination, perhaps north of the border. But seeing if I could improve on this season's European adventure and seeing if I can improve on Ireland's coefficient enough to eventually get an extra berth also sounds interesting. Anyone want to help me decide? Thanks Nucleus for your help. I also find your beginner's guide very helpful!
  13. Thanks. I'll give that a try. I've signed a number of new midfielders so will have a greater ability to experiment. One friendly so far I played ap - bwm - cm and dominated the game but didn't get good particularly ratings and the chances didn't come from the middle.
  14. Thanks for the suggestion. Would that be better than playing an AP in the central 3 as well?
