Does Height actually make alot of difference in football manager like it does in real life. For example at the weekend everyone saw how much trouble Zigic caused Arsenal.

Depends if you set PI instructions to take advantage such as, Example Zigic as target man set it the play the ball onto head.

Yes, of course! XD

Tactical Question:

You have Crouch up front, and he is your target man. How you should you pass to him? Run onto ball, or ball onto head?

i would say ball onto head and have someone playing alongside him who is a poacher.

Duckers that how ive been playing with Fulham in my last season but yeah just wasnt too sure how big an effect it was having but with Zamora at my target man and Olic as my poacher he managed to bang in a 50 goal season.

Crouch's headin is just 14 so make it MIXED!!
But his jumping is 20, and he has hight stats for composure, determination and bravery all of which affect heading. He's also slow and not amazing on the ball; to head every time for Crouchy

Actually bravery doesn't affect heading, it only affects how much the player is willing to do something that has the possibility of injuring themselves. I don't know how much composure affects heading, but I know that it affects the player's finishing skills with the foot more. Determination doesn't affect any attribute in particular, however, it represents the mentality of the player meaning it affects in the background.

Bravery affects how likely they are to go in for headers, and composure is how they perform under pressure, like when being closed down (so... challenging for headers). Determination is again linked to how hard they try to win the ball and react to negative situations...

they are intrisically linked. the players jumping stat is determined by their height, but other stats come into play, ancipiation, bravery, determination off the ball, strength, decisons etc.

No i dont think so because if your tall your not fast and if youre small your really fast but of course you need a person in your team who has to be tall

Usain Bolt is 6"5, your argument is invalid :p

But having said that, is it the case in the engine that tall guys tend to be strong and slow, or little guys quick and weak?

I would say the really young ones still could, like the 14 year old regens that come up from time to time. Would be interesting to pay attention to their physical changes (height and weight).
