The best way to have team talks under control:
Pre-Match: Against every single opponent : Aggressive- I expect a win
No individual team talk to any player regardless of whether they react negatively or are unresponsive
Half time: Unless 5+ goals clear (5-0/6-1/8-3) then select Aggressive---> Not happy with performance
If you are 5+ goals clear then select assistant to take the team talk
If a player with a half time rating above 7.2 reacts negatively or is unresponsive then passionately tell him you are happy with his performance
If a player with a half time rating below 7.2 reacts negatively or is unresponsive then passionately tell him that you have faith in him
Full time: Win: Passionately Well done/Happy with performance
Draw/Lose: Aggressively: Not happy with performance
*Team meetings as soon as you lose a game or draw having played badly in order to stop a negative run of results.
Saw someone post this - think it it was for FM12... but i thought i'd give it a go.
My under-performing West Ham team - try it... results? 6-0 away win vs West Brom... going to be giving this a proper go! Just thought i'd share.
