Hi guys,

Was just looking for some advice on how to bounce back from bad form and pick up dressing room atmosphere.

I survived the drop last season but my start to my second year in charge has been abysmal. Trying to pick up points has become difficult. I feel like I have a half decent side. But I just can't hold onto a lead to save my life.

Would be grateful for any tips you have in terms of picking up from bad form and relegation battles.

Cheers ✌️
I have had a similar spell this FM. When the results don't come on the pitch, sometimes you just have to force the results off the pitch. This can be done on the training ground. Perhaps look to schedule more sessions that improve the squad's morale, such as Team Cohesion sessions, etc. The description of each session will tell you which improve the squad's morale/happiness and which ones don't. If you can get the squad back and happy and supporting you, then you stand a better chance of surviving.
Happened to me before, I micromanaged everything from assigning training sessions, individual training, and improving the coaches or assigning them to coach according to their strengths. Check your team report and look for ways to improve your weaknesses or look for ways to use your strengths to its full potential. Look for players in your squad that arent doing so well and causes bad atmosphere in the dressing room and try to fix their situation. Some of those that i had to deal with was either sold or I trained and played them with their strengths. Mentoring method also works to, i dont like playing old players who have or about to decline but mentoring groups with younger players gives them a reason to be motivated and happy. Hopefully something helps... goodluck mate and cheers.
