For some reason the "show player attribute changes" button won't stay ticked, it unticks when I move to another screen, anyone had this problem?
Anyone got good tactics for this? I just find FM so hard anymore. I dont want to have to tinker with tactics before every match
Same boat,more challenging and takes more effort that the older games.
Oh yeah and crash dumps !!
Usually I buy players to suit my preferred tactics, 442 with wingers, but the team I'm managing now is blessed with midfield talent because of some super bargains I couldnt pass up.
I'm playing as Newcastle and have: Tiote, Cabaye, Toulalan, Ben Afa, Ozil, Riquelma, Jonas. They are my best players too and I need to change my system to fit them in... any suggestions?

What's the best way to ensure young players reach their full potential? Has it changed from previous games? With Dortmund I'd a great young team, good coaches and facilities and gave them all loads of first team football but they didn't develop like they should.
I've the same problem in another save with Liverpool. For example take Seb Coates. At the start of the season he had the potential to be 4 stars and I played him in nearly 50 games (nearly all starts) and have a 4.5 star defense coach yet he's now got the potential to be 3.5 stars, the same is happening to other players like Jack Robinson, Suso, Yaya Sanogo etc.
It's very frustrating when you invest so much time in young players and they turn out ****e. So what's the best way of developing young players?
Make sure coaching categories is at least 4.5 star across the board
Make sure your facilities are upgraded until they cant be upgraded anymore.
I find that custom schedules tailored towards for positions/roles/duties work far better than the generic ones. e.g. if you play with attacking full backs, create a schedule that has an emphasis on the key attributes for an attacking full back. Alot of people dont bother creating custom schedules, its worth the time to do them and save them for other saves.
When a 4 star player suddenly drops to 3.5 or 3 star there is a number of possibilities for this but the main ones are that your club is probably after winning something and your reputation in the football world has gone up. Expectations have increased and your coaches are now rating these players against these expectations. Coates was a 4 star for an underachieving Liverpool side but when the bar is raises, your coaches basically think that you could get better players.
Your coaches or scouts could be wrong in their assessment of player X and hype them too much. It could also be that 4 star rating as a youngster could drop to a 3.5 if you improve the quality of your squad or if the league improves. Don't put too much importance in coaches ratings of a player. Plenty of playing time and good coaches doing good training routines in good facilities will improve youngsters immensely.
Coach ratings are in relation to the rest of your team as well as the rest of the division. Could have been 4 stars last season, but other teams have gotten better players and you probably did too so his rating was re-evaluated and came out lower. Doesnt mean he has gotten worse, just that better players have been introduced.
Odd request here...
Does anyone have a FM11 CD Key they never registered with Steam that they would be willing to part with? I had a decent game going on it but haven't played in well over a year and want to get back into it. Never registered it with steam before so I need a fresh key as I no longer have mine.
Have DOW2 (Steam Giftable) and Space Marine (CD Key) I'd be willing to trade for it!
You can easily "obtain" one via other methods.
