Reports, Statistics and Making Notes
Other elements of the Player Profile include:
Stats – information on goal attempts, passes, appearances and more across all competitions; this information can also be filtered to display by competition.
Training – here you can set your player’s particular training regime as well as monitor his development under the regime via the Attributes tab.
Reports – this is a very useful screen in which your Assistant Manager gives his opinion on the player’s Personality, Position Training, Strengths, Weaknesses, Current and Potential Ability and summarises his report with a Recommendation.
Comparison – useful for comparing two players in the same role, this screen displays basic profile information of two players (your currently selected player and a second chosen through the Compare With drop down menu) complete with a summary spider graph; you can also compare Attributes as well as player Stats.
History – the entire playing career of your player is detailed here with dates, teams, what league the team was in, transfer values where appropriate as well as goals, appearances, assists (passes leading to goals), Man of the Match awards and the player’s average rating within the current game of Football Manager 2010.
Notes – a great option, this screen allows you to make your own notes about a player and easily recall them. These notes can be anything, from noting a performance to a reminder to retrain them to a different position.
With the above information carefully studied (around 5 minutes for each player) you should be able to get a good handle on your team, and utilise their strengths to good effect on match day.
