    Hey, I'm rather new to FM, so, I need to know something. I'm currently doing this with every game: Create a training regime for each individual player to ensure they train what I want them to improve. Most players I put on heavy workload, and some on very heavy when I want fast improvement.

    Is this a good idea? Shouls I train several at a time? Is heavy too much?

    Well if u set them to heavy... theres a higher chance of them becoming tired or injured.

    Your best option is to make a trainning regime for a specific position e.g. CAM and set it how u want it... then just assign ur CAM's to that regime.

    This sill save u having to do individual regimes for each player.

    if you want to do it for each induvidual player then that's totally fine, it just takes a while.

    Less time would be to make one for:

    GK
    Wing-backs
    DC's
    DMC's
    Wingers
    AMC's
    SC's

    also, no offence but don't listen to Jonaz on the workload (H) I have all my players on either heavy or JUST edging into very heavy, and they're usually fine. Your players will let you know if they feel the "training regime is too intensive" so you might aswell push it. If you find you're getting heaps of injuries or that your players never get above 90% condition, ligthen the workload.

    Thanks. My team usually does have quite a few injuries, but given the extravagant sums of money Chelsea gives I always have at least 3 players for every position. They're all usually fit and happy, never had any complaints. Althought sometimes some players just deteriorate for no reason, d'you know why? All of their stats go down but they're training wdid wonders the month before.

    Oh, I've got another training-related question. Can you training moves? Like, the preferred stuff that are mentioned in the position screen? Because that would be cool. Besides, Lahm should have some moves and he doesn't, hence, use of the editor. But I'd rather have fair way to give players these qualities.

    U just dont like me do u Tom lol :nape:

    I feel that pushing ur players isnt always a good thing, if u push them too hard their performances suffer.

    But if u want to push them hard and whip them then thats totally up to u :)

    Oh, and I've got two more questions: If say, Player X is a striker and has a very strong right foot, but a week left one, would training him as a left attacking midfielder improve his 'leftiness'? If not, then, how can you improve a player's foot ability?

    And, if Player Y is natural as a AM R, and accomplished as AM L and AM C, if I train him for an AM C, would playing him there be better than leaving him at his natural position until he's natural as AM C?

    I dont think you can train someone's position to natural. I think you can train them to accomplished at most, quite logically actually. It does help to play the player at AMC, to get him accomplished at that position faster I think.

    A player's foot ability is very difficult to improve - it tends to remain fairly constant throughout their career no matter what position you play them. Take me in real life as a (dodgy) example - my preferred position is central midfield, but if I have to play on a wing I much prefer to play on the left than the right, even through my right foot is far stronger than my left foot, as I like to cut in from the wing. Another example would be (afaik) Phillip Lahm of Germany.

    I've seen it happen on CM4 when I forced the issue; I played heavily down the left (Riise/Kewell) and Owen's left foot improved considerably - I even think he got to "either" status. Took ages and I didn't mean to do it though :D

    Didn't Owen score the second FA cup final goal vs the Arse on his left foot after rounding 2 defenders? I swore he scored across David Seaman on his left :S
