Sounds like your assistant manager is sh*te! never had an issue when my ass man takes over. The main cause of my issues is that I have set them to use my tactic and it was wrong. When I leave them to use their own tactics, then they seem to do better.
I suggest we stick to Hammy’s original request for using Premiership Teams do to the lesser amount of games.
I am not worried about the Roll Back but happy to follow if you think its called for.
I think you need to ask yourself how in depth you want this first game to be. What type of manager are you?
For instance, do you play setting the training, spending hours on one day/week analsing match fitness and working on tactics or are you a “f*ck that - ass man can do the training” type manager, I want to wheel and deal in the transfer market.
Now I am definitely a wheeler/dealer manager, training is just not something that interests me. I get a gut feel and run with it. I trust my ass man and he normally comes through.
Looking at Hammy’s posts, I get the impression that trusting the AI Ass man is an issue and he is very hands on - a wonderful attribute - a tracksuit manager.
We are going to get a clash of styles of play which will be fun; But we will need to comprise our “normal” single player game mode mindset as the game could become really boring for players who do not go in-depth but equally, if we go too fast, people will get upset as three matches have gone by and they drew two due to wrong player selection.
In the “Go On Holiday” options, you can select play current tactic and current squad (when possible) so it could work for matches.
Is compromise an option?
