    During season (not pre-season), I am rotate more:

    - Attacking
    - Defending
    - Possession
    - Technical
    - Tactical
  • mitchy7780's avatar

    If we have the following training scenario:-

    week 1 = attack
    week 2 = defending
    week 3 = possession

    If week 2 becomes a 2 fixture week due to progress in a competition, does week 3 from our original schedule then become the defending schedule, or does it remain as possession and week 2 just simply becomes '2 Fixtures' schedule?
  • fc.cadoni's avatar

    It depends from position. For example MC position I add him additional focus "Passing" and the role according to the tactic.

    Great training schedules, thanks!

    I have one question, which type of individual training should we put 23 and 31 year old players? I got confused because you put both of the ages in both training age interval. Thank you.
  • fc.cadoni's avatar

    Yes and no. Players want to train and other attributes, like when using so often "attacking", defenders isn't train so well their important attributes. So, a balancing approach is way to go.
  • fc.cadoni's avatar

    Thanks for letting me know about this.
  • channibalism's avatar
    Thanks a lot again...

    These training methods; Should it be chosen according to the opponent? Or should I do it alternately, regardless of the opponent, Offensive-Defense-Tactical?
  • Glorfindel81's avatar

    thanks for your reply. I can make them available, but if the games from the first Team and the Reserve are at the same Time, the players didn't get match time. When the Kick off time is different, then there is no Problem. But with the Wed->Sat-Option, all matches are at 15:30. Ich changed the Kick off time for the reserve League to 13:00 and it runs. May be it's a bug, but I reinstalled the game and deleted every stuff and the same problem happend.
  • fc.cadoni's avatar

    I don't know why this is happening. Have you checked Staff Responsibilities - Match "Ask which first team players are available for this team"; you will see 3 options. Otherwise don't know why this happened and I have not experienced similar issues.
  • fc.cadoni's avatar

    Sorry, typo about "rest". I was meant "others".
  • Glorfindel81's avatar
    @ Cadoni,

    thank you for your great schedules.

    They are designde for Wed->Sat-Matchweeks only. If I chose this setting, my players aren't available for my Reserve/Youth Team anymore.
  • Supermou3359's avatar

    Thank you so much!! that has really cleared it up and makes it a lot clearer.

    Also last question, sorry about this. When you say rest session, do you mean the schedule you titled "no fixture" or the preset of giving them the week off..
  • fc.cadoni's avatar

    Correct. Keep them always on that intensity.

    Regarding rotation: 1 month use attacking, defending, tactical. Next month possession, technical, set piece. Next month rest sessions and so on.
  • Supermou3359's avatar
    Also another question, in regards to the rest. You say double intensity for the 15-23 year olds and normal intensity for players from 23-35, does that mean to keep them always on that intensity regardless of their condition? Just a bit confused because I'm getting a lot of injuries at the moment.
  • Supermou3359's avatar
    Could you please clear up how to use the training schedule. Do we rotate between the attacking, defending, tactical etc. every month or use attacking, defending, tactical etc. once a month and rotate. Not sure which ones to use at the moment. Thank you

    Rotate training sessions during whole season.

    There is a training session for NO FIXTURE.
  • channibalism's avatar

    I have a few questions, my friend:

    How should I apply the "A1 Attack, D1 Defending" exercises mentioned in the topic?

    Which of the specified training should I apply in the mid-season preparatory matches? or Which of the specified exercises should I do when there is no fixture?
  • fc.cadoni's avatar

    I am afraid, I don't have kept any screenshots from players progress from the last time which I played the game, but had 95% of my players with 7.50 training rate and above. I am buying and selling players often, so. I would be happy to see results from other users as well.
  • gpassosbh's avatar
    @cadoni, please can you show us a few players progress during season using your training?
  • fc.cadoni's avatar
    @Si49 Thanks! I hope to enjoy and have success
  • YAMS's avatar
    These look good. Don't think I've seen any team training routines this well done for a fair while.
