    Passing sliders

    I havent played in a few years and now have the touch version. Are the old sliders completely gone now? Also will adding individual instructions to a role increase the time it takes for a player to adapt to it as opposed to using default instructions? I want to run a 4 3 2 1 with 5...

    Sports Management Degree

    Just curious if anyone has a BA/BS or MA in Sports Management? I'm looking at going into a MA program and thought why not ask this forum (I don't think that FM playing guy who works for Baku FC posts here)

    Swapping Central Defenders

    Are there any positives to swapping your central defenders? I like finding little key things that make a tactic that much more effective. Was thinking that perhaps swapping defenders will encourage them to cover space left by the other and prevent the opposition from picking on one side of the...

    Creating Uniform Combinations-Help

    Hey guys, I'm trying to set up my team with two different shorts options. One blue and one white for both the home and away. I've done it before, but I don't remember how to now. I know it has something to do with the "Alternative jersey number" field. The default for all options is zero...

    Has anyone only accepted invitations to play in a Reserves league and moved all U19 player to the reserve team? Will this save any money or improve the reputation of my youth?
