With button "Automatic" you can remove these individual settings. If someone sends you a challenge to a friendly match, it will be presented in the calendar at the appropriate match, where you can accept or reject it.

PlayersHere you have a list of players who belong to your club, as well as those who are applying for membership. New players come in irregular intervals, the length of which depends on the level of your training center and the quality of your scouts. Also their quality is influenced by these attributes. There are always maximum three new players and another can come only when you release at least one of these three positions by accepting or refusing of candidate.
Using icons on the right side you can manage players as needed. There in the table you can see the numerical values of players attributes as they were trained up followed by potential of player for this attribute with less pronounced colour. This potential decreases with age and completing the training. The potential is higher, the faster the player will train the appropriate attribute. Refer also to the section Training.
The most informative parameter indicating the player utility is Total performance. It includes all his trained attributes also with his experiences according to his role.
By the click on player name you go to its page, where you can see and you can adjust everything that relates to him, including training. He can train at most three attributes at same time. Unlike the list of players here on his personal card data is Current total performance. It is his total performance affected by state of his health and fitness.
Jersey number, which you can set here, it can be displayed on the icons of players at a football match. For your default captain will also appear on his jersey shorts.
Statistics of the player page are these from league matches of the current season.Contracts with players usually lasts one season and they are extended automatically unless this option you switch off.
5 days before the contract of player expires, there among its controls an icon of the contract appears. If you click it, you can delegate your staff to negotiate a new contract and thus save some money. If you do not use this option, the personnel department approves the salary that player requires for the next period.
StatisticsWe used the player statistics division by the tournaments for appending the information about any punishment for the player here.
TrainingYou can assign three different training activities at a time to each player. As trained players attributes will grow, the potential for them will decrease.
In the game we have four types of players and everyone uses their attributes in the game at another level. We can not reveal exactly how. Because it is the subject of your inquiry and secondly - we have programmed real simulator, so no exact default numbers and ratios exist. In our game you can place a midfielder for the position of striker and he can bring quite a nice performance. Although perhaps misses the goal, but it excellent pass for a teammate. We can advise you just: Do training logically!
From the millions of test matches in the system we have created a hidden table, underpinning one important detail - team strength in the last match. There is reflected each attribute of player due to his position in the lineup.
There you can see highlighted four main attributes in the tables. Train other attributes as if you deal with real life. E.g. heading of the goalkeeper has no meaning, but passing is important. Shooting for the defender rarely comes to game. And midfielder must know perhaps everything except goalkeeping. Importantly, the potential decreases slowly with age and also how the attribute increases. It is therefore better to train attributes with higher potential, or those with lower? Watch it and think about it.
At any time during the season you can send any player to training camp. Beware, however, that while he is there, he cannot play matches. The player trained attributes will grow faster in the camp than in normal training. Each player can be in a camp for a maximum of 20 days divided into an optional number of sections during one season.
Lives and RecordsThis section is intended to watching live feed of the ongoing match or the record of the match played. Simulated match lasts 15 minutes and it's in sync with real time. This means that when you start watching the match 15 minutes after its begin, you can not move the watching by the "skip to end" button to its end, but only to the equivalent calculated in real time. During continuous watching, of course, there is a time outrunning in the ratio 6:1.
In addition to buttons intended to record playing there are another buttons to the right of them. That are buttons for full-screen [☐], animation-type [A], type of player mark [#] (initials of name / game role / jersey number) and sound control [Sfx ] [Noi]. Regarding the type of animation, choose that one, which works as smoothly as possible on your computer using your browser. The number of frames per second (FPS) you will see below the bottom left corner of the field. The best with animation performance is currently Google Chrome. If we had not limited the FPS artificially to 60, Chrome could achieve 200 with the 3GHz processor using a single core with no problems. We limited it to processor does not overheat needlessly.
Next MatchFor the Next Match page is important to describe especially its lower part, where you can assign the lineup, tactics and determine the price of tickets for the match. When the system detects a problem with the lineup, you will see a flashing red exclamation mark under the right lower corner of the field. The label of the problematic player will be highlighted in color. In the case of you have manually assigned the settings to match, you will see the asterisk symbol(*) under the header. If it is assigned automatically according to a set strategy, you will see there "A".
LineupYou can place the players by pulling their names by the mouse to the position on the playground. Due to tablets and other touch devices there is the opportunity to do it even by tapping first the name and then position. The position erasure you can reach by dragging it to the trash at right down corner. The "Save" button stores each lineup separately.
There in the right column - the substitutes panel - the top three players are intended for eventual timing of substitution. For the substitution rules, click on labels underneath them. The second lower label box is intended to placing there the player leaving the field. Substitutes will be used in the case of there is a problem with a player in the lineup, automatically according to their roles. If you also assign the substitution rules to them, they will be applied as far as possible by setting.
The bottom panel is used to assign functions to players. Remember that the captain has to have creativity and experience, the shooters shooting and the passes passing capabilities. Below the bottom right corner of the field there are links for copying and switching of individual lineups.
TacticsThe tactics items meaning is as follows:
The "Save" button saves each tactics separately.
- Game effort: The intensity of effort of players during all the match. It increases power of team, on the other hand it take away energy of players for the next days.
- Game tempo:Determines the ratio of forward and backward passes and the stalling of game.
- Game start: Specifies the distribution of players forces during the match. Using "Energetic" their effort decreases during the match, using "Light" effort rises. The player energy consumption is not affected by this item.

By adjusting the percentages you can let the automatic system know when the match is considered a dfficult, balanced or light. These settings are used whenever match tactics and lineup are not set individually.

Real EstateHere in this section you can build and demolish the blocks of buildings, which are the property of the club. Clicking on the center name in the table or on the surface of the picture opens a dialog which shows you what awaits you in the construction and it allows you to build. Already built blocks can also be demolished. Demolition is free and is intended to reduce the maintaining cost of the club when it got into financial distress.
Importance of individual complex parts:
Build the complex clever as necessary according of finance. In addition to its direct benefits, its value is also important for the bank when you want to apply for a loan. Remember that the parts for the maintenance should not unnecessarily to overtake the rest of the complex.

StaffThe staff is as important as real-estate for the club. On the page of staff you can manage all that concerns them. Each one has two key attributes - knowledge and experience .Experience grows day by day spent at the club and his knowledge decreases every day loosing its timeliness and quality, so it should be sent for training to be truly useful for the club. Like the players, such the employee has certain potential for his attributes, which is shown in the table by less strong letters. Its meaning and decline is the same as for players, so with increasing age employee training reduces its effectiveness.
Employee is among his colleagues automatically promoted according to his abilities and the higher is in the table, the more he affects the area in which he operates. Theoretically, an unlimited number of employees is here, but the impact of each lower in the career ladder is half that of his superior, so that lower-level employees can difficult to compensate their wage by their usefulness for the club.
New jobseekers come irregularly depending on the level of the personnel department. Also the quality of applicants depends on it, so it is important to build the office building as soon as posiible, employ a good HR manager and train him.
