How to set up team training




The training section of Football Manager has seen quite some changes in recent years. From the possibility to adjust team training from day to day in older versions of the game, to a global training section with a few and simple options in later versions of the game. In this guide we show you the basics of applying a basic form.

In the screenshot you see below you will see the team overview page. On the overview page you have every option available to apply team training at your club. we have highlighted 5 different aspects which you can adjust and will discuss each separate option.

teamtraining guide

1. Calender

Your team training schedule is shown on the calendar. Every type of training has its own color, so the coloring of the calendar can vary from week to week and will give you a quick insight of which type of training you have selected.

2. General training

The type of general training can be picked by using the drop down in this area. The type of focus you select here will be seen as your ‘main team training’ and will then be your standard training during the season. But you will be able to change this manually for every week (see number 5).

3. Scheduling

In this section you will find a slider, which indicates how much time is spent by your team on team- or on match training. Sliding it from left to right will have you pick more team or more match training.

It also offers the option to allow rest before and / or after matches.

4. Match training

Here you have the option to adjust the type of match training you would like to use. The setting you pick here will be seen as the standard and will be used before every game. Off course you will be able to alter this manually for each and every week.

Best pick to change this manually is before every match. If you have given a scout the assignment to check your next opponent, he will be giving advice on the type of match training you should be picking. The level of your scout will determine the accuracy of his advice.

5. Planning ahead

The Calendar in FM (see number 1) shows a maximum of three weeks at a time. The week on top is the current week you are in, and the two weeks below are the coming two weeks. You can use this section to plan and adjust the team and / or match training. This way you can decide to adjust your team or match training for every single opponent.

For example: You can switch to defensive and defensive positioning when you play an away game at the league leaders or switch both to an attacking focus when you play at home against a team that is lower on the table.

Latest players

Lewis Cook

Lewis Cook is one of the ideal Brexit players to keep watching. He plays for Bournemouth, but is keen on moving to one of the club inside the top 6. He will cost you roughly around 45 to 50 million and that is considered a steal for this type of player in the Premier League. He is a very good playmaker and could easily play for one of the big teams in the Premier League.

Lisandro Martinez

Lisandro Martinez is a real catch in Football Manager 2019. The young Argentinian is a talented centre-back and is available for an expected 7M transfer fee. Ideal player to have if you like longer saves and need a good ball playing defender who is able to develop a lot.

Julian Brandt

Julian Brandt has the potential to become one of the elite players in Football Manager 2019. The German winger shows some lethal skills and will have no trouble with playing for the biggest clubs in the world. He has a 70m price tag, which seems a fair price in modern football.

Franck Kessie

If you are looking for a tireless midfielder Franck Kessie could be the ideal player for you. The Ivorian international has all the attributes for a very good ball-winning midfielder. However, it is not possible to sign Kessie in the first two seasons as he is on a loan from Atalanta and will sign on a permanent deal for Milan in the summer of 2019.

Javairo Dilrosun

Former Manchester City left winger Javairo Dilrosun is considered as one of the bigger talents from Holland. He has the potential to become a regular international and is a very handy player if you love a left-footed left winger that will cross in the ball onto your striker. For 22.5 he could be yours, so keep an eye out for him!

Josip Brekalo

Josip Brekalo is a talented player who could develop into an awesome inside forward. The Croatian international is already a first team regular at Wolfsburg and it is expected that he will leave the club on a short term. Keep him on your shortlist as the expected 60m fee could drop after a couple of seasons.
