    Foxy reacted to Nucleus in FMM19 Wishlist: Training and why it should be improved   
    Training, a vital part of a footballers career, a part that you could say makes a player. Legends are made under the dazzling lights of stadiums, but they are born on the training ground. It’s also unfortunately a part that is very limited to us as FMM players. Here’s where I think SI could improve on in regards to training for FMM19 and beyond.
    First of all let me clarify that I’m happy to keep the current training system we have in place as it is. That could serve as the Team’s General Training Regime, maybe add a few more slots so we can variate a bit more freely, but otherwise it’s a decent template for a Mobile Game. What I would like to see introduced however, is Individual Player Training. Individual Player Training would allow us to mould our players whichever way we see fit, and I’ll tell you how.
    Additional Focus Training:
    Additional Focus Training could be used to give a player extra training in specific attributes alongside the team’s general training regime. Additional focus would play an important part in shaping your players development, but more importantly it would give you much more freedom to shape a player to your needs.
    For example, you could set these additional focuses to each player:-
    A specific attribute focus - With this, a player would spend his additional focus time on improving a single attribute. Got a striker that you’d like to have more shooting? Then give him additional focus on the shooting attribute. Got a defender with poor decision making? Then give him additional focus on the decisions attribute, and so on. Remember, your team’s general training regime is always in play, all these are are extra training regimes filtered down to your individual choice for that player. Role Focus - With this a player would spend his additional focus time on improving a “set” of attributes related to a tactical role. Got a player you use as an advanced forward but you fancy his chances as a target man? Then an individual focus on the TM role would try and improve his Aerial, Shooting, Aggression and Strength. Key attributes for a target man. What this does, is allow more attributes to trained but it would obviously have a lesser effect on each one trained as the training time would be shared amongst each attribute. Positional Training:
    Or to be more precise, the scrapping of the current system. Ever witnessed first hand, the frustration of trying to retrain a player that you believe could play in a certain position, only for your “coach” to tell you he has zero aptitude in training for that position? I have, and it sucks. For example, a poor example actually but still an example. Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia, two natural wingers but have somehow found themselves playing as wingbacks. Gareth Bale, a left full-back by trade, pushed up the wing after the tactical instruction of Joe Jordan and look at him now. Sergio Ramos, Javier Mascherano, Vincent Kompany, Thierry Henry the list goes on. All of these players found success after switching positions. Positions that we have now all been accustomed with them playing in.
    The point I’m trying to make is that we should be the ones to determine where a player can retrain to,  not an in-game coach who as we all know don’t really work effectively anyway. Granted, it wouldn’t always work, but it would make the game much more immersive than it is right now in my honest opinion. Imagine the joy of deciding to push your full-back up the wings or even as a striker and realising a world class player develop under your eyes!
    Player Trait Training:
    Player Trait Training could be used to train a player to learn a new trait or forget an unwanted trait he already has. Before setting Player Trait Training up, it would be important to make sure that the trait would be beneficial for the player, because remember, all this extra training adds to his workload and he could be at risk of injury if pushed too much. For those of you not sure what I mean when I say traits, I’m talking about the text you see on a player’s position page:-

    As you can see here, Mbappé has a few traits as an Advanced Forward on this page, the three we see are “gets into opposition area” “moves into channels” and “places shots”
    If there’s plenty of interest, I’d be happy to write an article describing what each trait does in-game.
    There’s two ways to train a player to learn a new trait:-
    Coached by Club Staff - This one speak for itself. One of your coaches would train the player to learn a new trait. This is where we could have more use of the staff in-game. If I wanted one of my defenders to learn a defensive trait, I’d assign that task to my defensive coach, and vice versa with an attacking player learning an attacking trait. Player Mentoring - This would be a nice fun and possibly useful addition to the current set up. This is simply getting an older, more experienced player at the club to tutor a younger inexperienced player for a set amount of time. This could be teaching the younger player a new trait, or even going as far as to change his personality. For example, a ‘professional’ tutor could teach a young eccentric player to be more professional. Or a “determined” tutor could try and rub off on a player who needs some guidance and pushing in the right direction. These are just a few ideas that in my opinion would improve on the current game.
    What are your thoughts on training? Do you agree with what I suggested above? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
    As always Vibe, Thanks for Reading.

    Cheers fella. I had a theory that the best way was score a few wins early then get sacked nice and quick once it all turns to crap but clearly there was a far better way to go about this challenge....

    Foxy got a reaction from PilgrimAsh in Damilare Vs Kanegan: A challenge battle - Challenge Five   
    Despite @Damilare taking an unassailable lead in this H2H both competitors wanted to do the 5th challenge, especially as they will have the chance to go top of a leaderboard for this challenge in the process . I wanted to test them over a couple of seasons with this final challenge and I had a scout around in the index and found this. I like this challenge because although it involves using a club we are all familiar with the player choices are definitely unfamiliar for most of us. 
    Challenge 5
    The Paulinho Alcantara Challenge
    This challenge was created by @Woody so 100% credit goes to him all I did was trawl the challenge forum to find it. Here is the original post by Woody for more detail and I will summarise underneath.
     
    So Paulinho Alcantara was Philipino but born in Spain and played for both those nations during his career as well as club football for Barcelona. Dami and Kane job is to sign a Philipino striker and try to match or better his goal tally of 200 goals in 177 games. In put that in context if there striker plays 60 games a season in will take a little under 3 seasons to play those games.
    Once your striker has played 177 games for Barca it is challenge over so keep track of his Barca games not his Career games and goals if he played for clubs previously.
     Another major part of this challenge is that they cannot make any other transfers in during the time this challenge takes so they must use players already in the first team and develop some of the talent in the B team as well.
    Rules
    ·        Take over at Barcelona and sign a Philipino striker. Load Australia and South Korean leagues to help find a player.
    ·        Your striker must play 177 games and once he has it is challenge over.
    ·        Most goals after 177 games wins.
    ·        In case of a tiebreak it will be most team goals that wins.
    ·        No editing of any form.
    ·        No reloading to avoid injuries, suspensions or getting a good thrashing.
    ·        No unlockables.
    I believe the guys will be doing season by season updates so I hope you will follow along.
    Good luck lads.

    Good effort @Kanegan you actually scored 211pts btw as it was 25 pts for a Europa League win.
    Congratulations @Damilare well played. Now its up to you lads if you want to play the 5th challenge. I will PM you both what I have in mind and you can decide.

    Foxy reacted to Woody in The 'Paulino Alcantara' challenge...   
    THE PAULINO ALCANTARA CHALLENGE

    Alcantara was a Filipino/Spanish striker who spent most of his career at Barcelona over 2 spells scoring 200 goals in 177 league games.
    Born in Barcelona to Filipino parents he represented Spain and the Phillipines at international level.
    2 games and a single goal for the Phillipines before swapping allegiances to Spain and notching 6 goals in 5 games made him quite the striker during the early 1900's
    He is also the youngest to ever play and score for the Calatans at the age of 15 scoring a hat-trick on his debut.
    THE CHALLENGE
    Start a game with Spain as your main league along with Australia and South Korea.
    Take over Barcelona and find your Filipino striker of choice...
    Here are 3 that i recommend..



    Can you beat Alcantara's record and place your self into Filipino history?
    I wish you good luck.
    RULES.
    Usual Vibe rules apply
    If you don't reach 200 by 177 games you failed 😂
    But there is a twist....

    I just can’t stress enough how important this article is if you want to understand how the ME works and treats your instructions.
    Playing tiki-taka has always been the holy grail for FM and FMM players. Now i’m not going to say this is the perfect tiki-taka. But this is a prime example how you can influence the game to a big extent.
    I’ve been playing around with some of your findings and reasonings behind the tactic and i’m so pleased to see that the DLM works with my attacking players like i want him to. He is passing and scoring goals. The BBM is a king on the pitch. And the deep backline... pure genius! Super super work. 
    This article alone has bloody giving my FMM fire back👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻

    Foxy got a reaction from Titjes in Every Threesome Needs a Woody - The CCW1KC - S4   
    Season 4
    After mine and Cervi’s very, very average total in season 1 was over shadowed by @Woody and @Rob2017 90+ scores in season 2 and 3 I need to get my finger out so that I provide some meaningful contribution to this save. The squad looks amazing when I take over with world class players in ever position so the target going into the season was 100 goals but to do that I would need my player to hit the ground running and have some luck when it came to injuries. 
    I had a long list of possible transfer targets but these were out of my price range as I only had £118m to spend and I wasn’t able to get rid of Leon Bailey as quickly as I wanted. I wanted to get my guys as quickly as possible so he could get learning the striker role as soon as possible so I compromised a little and went for a cheaper option in the shape of Croat Marko Pjaca from Juventus. Annoyingly Juve then used the money I paid for him to help fund signing Bailey from me but hey ho I was pleased with my choice and he is a little less obvious a choice compared to some I looked at.

    Transfer
    I let a few fringe players go and of course Bailey went as well.
     
    I had very little to do in terms of bringing players in and the squad was already banging but I did have to bring in Aaron from Espanyol as Tierney got a 6 month injury at the beginning of the season. Timo Werner was a bosman that was arranged by Rob. I used some of the money from selling Bailey to sign Joao Carvalho back to the club to play as a playmaker. He has been sold to Everton by Woody and he had the sense to put a nice sell on clause in so I spent £95m on him but then got £24m back 😀

    Competitions
    I would have liked to get maximum league points this year as there isn’t any team in Portugal that should be able to touch us but this is FMM and it always likes to screw us over. We lost 1-0 to Sporting with a 90th minute goal doing for our 100% season. The cups were easy peasy so the challenge came in the Champions League but we made the final and then beat Real Madrid 2-1 thanks to two Pjaca goals.

    Pjaca
    He started the season on fire and hit the 30 goals he needed for this save to continue in 14 games. A couple of stand out moments were these 4 goal hauls.
    This was looking like it could be the 100 goal season that I really wanted but remember when I said you need some luck with injuries? Well he got slowed down by a 10 day injury but no big deal just 3 games missed but then the curse of international football hit as he picked up a 3 week injury playing against Belgium and that was going to make the 100 goal total very hard to get.
    In total he missed 8 games through the season due to those injuries which was a real pisser.

    Even so if he had maintained his early season form he would have hit 100 goals as he was at a 2 goals a game rate but of course a slight drop in form is to be expected and that was the case here as he finished the season with the grand total of 90 goals.
    Not terrible but it could have been so much better.

    Pavon
    As Rob mentioned in his season 3 update we are going to see how many assists we can get from Pavon but he had a few injuries of his own this season.
    Even with the injuries he had a brilliant season as he became the first player I have ever used that has managed to get an assist a game ratio in a season. It’s a real shame that he missed 17 games other wise we could have been looking at 60 assists for the season.

     
    That’s season 4 done and dusted and the save now moves back to @Woody.
    Cheers lads

    In the Man City test I found the goals spread quite equally between the front 3 with only a couple of goals between there totals. With assists I had the most from De Bruyne who played as either the AP or BBM but between the IF and the SS I would say the SS set up more.
