    Angry Buying good players?? - what's my mistake??

    Hi, there!

    I'm at level 24, and I consider myself a good manager since I've achived promossion every single championship, and won championships and Cups every couple of seasons.

    I usually buy players on the night of changing seasons, and my criteria are:

    - Price (the higher, the better)
    - Under 20 years
    - Quality (near the 6 star)
    - Always Nordeus teams (Fluffy FC, Stinky AC, etc)
    - sometimes special ability (1 on 1 finish, for example)
    - lower wage for players with the same quality

    I've finished 2nd last season, so my roster wasn't that bad.

    All the players (5, in fact) I've bought this season (some with special abilitys like 1 on 1 finish) are complete low performers!!
    I'm using 4 stars players instead of my (now) 6 stars players!!

    Am I missing something here? What am I doing wrong??




    Best regards!

    Just unlucky with your purchases, perhaps? Do you have more stats? Does the live game show you messages about the way they behave on the pitch?

    The stats I have are:
    - the endgame ratings (lots of 4 and 5, while players with 4 stars get in the same positions get 7),
    - some bad passes,
    - lots of gols sufferd while the 6 stars defender is in the field,
    - top striker (in atributes) with 1-on-1 finishing, mising in front of the goal.


    My main questions are:

    Can I do something to "fix" these players?
    Could / can I predict this just "looking" to the player on the transfer market??

    Can you provide a screenshot of such a player's skills?

    One thing I have worked on, since the last season, has been balancing skills. For instance, I won't take on a striker who doesn't have good defensive skills. Then, a defender must have good attacking skills because attacking includes passing. If there is a gap, then I make sure to attribute newly earned skill points to adjust.

    I am convinced that good balance makes your players better and more reliable overall. That does not guarantee results, but I am sure it helps.

    you probably have to edit and re upload your pictures
    Expressed above is my own opinion. Your results may vary.

    Give them time and they will probably turn around, this is seen several times.

    Don't chance too many in starting 11 at once
