Ok am enjoying this version of FM as very intricate and demanding but 2 things have me puzzled so was hoping to glean the answers here.
1- All my coaches are 4/4.5 so all top notch. I have my players set to individual training ie limited defender set to limited defender but they keep advising that x player should be put on traing to improve his marking etc however this is covered in the limited defender training so do i accept the coaches advice or leave my player doing as i instructed him.
2-When checking OI's what would be described as weaker foot? is it when shows as reasonable or weak?

1: Ignore what your coaches say, if you think your player would benefit from a specific attribute coaching, do it. Otherwise, just keep them on general role training.
2: The game has a hidden attribute ranked out of 20 for each players foot. So, a right footed player would have a right foot of 20, and a left footed one a left attribute 20. So if a player has a right foot of 20, and left foot of 5(for example, I can't remember the exact ratios) his stats page would probably say he is "Right Foot Only". If he has a right foot of 20 and a left foot of 17, it would probably say he is "Either" footed, but the game would still count his left foot as weaker and the OI's would try to force him into that foot still, which at 17, would still be pretty dangerous.

1. If you focus on his marking his other stats will still improve just his marking will improve at an increased rate. It's much like how you have it set to limited defender but it's more focused and goes along quicker. It's usually the best way of improving a young player, focus on the key attributes that you can and then eventually switch them over to a more general one once you're happy with the players development.

2. Go to the players profile, will show you which foot he uses, Left only, Left, Either, Right, Right only. You'll want to force players onto a weaker foot that are Left or right foot only, for the others it wont make a huge amount of difference as the gap between their ability with each foot isn't a huge amount.
