I'm getting sick and tired of giving players praise who play well and them telling me that they thought they'd played rubbish :mad:

Just beat hibs 7-0 and whittaker got 8.6 so I praised him and now he's annoyed at me for praising him.
anyone else get this??

I said you played well in the last game, keep it up. it's not the first time it's happened to me either. I always praise the best 3 players in a match and some of them get snotty about it, ****** annoying ha.

This is something i'd like to be changed in the next patch, really annoys me when i tell a player his form is good and he throws a strop because of it. Would also like a feature for praising training levels and behaviour.

Well, give him meagre praise, and tell him that you want him to continue it in the next few matches. He will acknowledge he has done well, but be more determined to continue it.

You can praise training levels if you've previously told them they need to work harder to make the first team/stay at the club.

Yeah, but praising the 3 best players is too much. Praise a player when he gets a 9.5, or a great run of form. You still get to be favourite personnel, and you're not handing out praise like candy, which seems to be part of the reason why they get upset =P

When praising performances, be careful as to who had the best rating.

I've found that praising a player, no matter how high a rating he had, that has a rating of more than 1 less than the best player, it's ineffective.

I usually praise the best player, and those having up to a .6 or .8 difference, depending how high the best rating was.

Also choose wisely between the two positive options, saving the second one for truly impressive stuff.

I never praise my players, I don't care if I'm in their favoured personal, I'll probably sell them at the end of the season anyway.
