    No benefit to watching games,

    I find that my teams results don't improve when I am watching. If anything one or two of them have been better when I didn't watch.

    I have kept an eye on it and it doesn't matter if I am watching a game where I make no changes or not.

    The possession boosts don't seem to count for much, even if teams only have 20% possessin they still make as many chances. I've said it befor that this game seems to be more about random variables then quality management.

    the only thing you truly get from watching match is a blue booster and a green pack for making sub but this does not happen if injury and auto sub comes on if you are not watching

    Ha,

    Just watched a game (and had a friend watch it to supposedly boost my chances), my team was at least 20% better then the opposition on paper and had over treble the amount of chances ON TARGET, had a better GK, better forward line and lost 1-0 . .

    I'm not angry, it just sort of makes you wonder if there is any real logic to the game . . Bad results happen to all teams, but there are things in this game that don't really measure up with real life or even with other simulated manager games.

    How would you know? You can't watch it and not watch it to compare.

    I watch for boosters - thats why I get loads of yellow cards.

    You can compare results against similar quality teams. Drew 1-1 with a team in a game I watched, and beat a similar quality team 9-0 day before in game I didn't watch. Also find that the games I wat watch finish low scoring and games I don't watch finish much higher.

    I'm afraid you can't. You can get that variability watching them all or not watching them all. I could cite a 9-1 win in CL home match 2 seasons ago and 2-2 draw away - both managers watched both, same formations same teams.

    I could also cite 10Q inferior teams with 20% possession making chances (and the 1 truly troll result I've had was just that - a 1-0 loss with over 15 shots on target v a ST GK) but similarly there are 14-0 wins against teams with 20% possession that didn't get the red card boost either.

    I believe you should give yourself as much advantage as possible, but its not a do X + Y = win. Its a simulation. And there are patterns, patterns everywhere.....

    But if not watching works for you then that's good.

    Similar quality doesn't mean their form and tactics is the same... I watch games to change formations, tactics and attitude if necessary... Sometimes it works (today I won a game vs. 12 stars stronger team), sometimes it doesn't (yesterday I lost a game vs. a team who plays 2 levels bellow). I watched both games...

    i will tell you right now to not compare this game with real life or actual simulation football games. This is anything but. You just need to treat it like a simple facebook game, if you spend too much time on this game you will be disappointed
