As you can see, he's really playing constantly, but he's still at 2.5 half stars, same as he was at the start of the season, should I be worried and look to do something about that or is that normal, that he hasn't progressed in more than half a season?
Could depend on many factors, I think you got the right idea bringing him onto the pitch every now and then, i'd say at 20 he should be starting to replace your current starter tho, or look to loan him out to get constant match time.

I'd suggest to look at his training, what unit he is in, what your training him to be, keep an eye on his training levels, and don't be afraid to criticise his lack of development, depending on his personality normally they have a good reaction and push a bit harder to develop for a few months.

Ultimately, star ratings are....well just an opinion of your assistant or coach on your staff, it only suggests he may become a 4 star player not a guarantee!, there's other factors involved in a player reaching his full potential such as the training facilities, the coaches you have and how good they are!, maybe take a look at your current coaches and se if you can upgrade/ask the board for more coaches!.

Sometimes a player just doesn't live up to expectation and might be worth cashing in on him if a good offer comes in....also, sometimes players develop later i guess it's your call what you do with him Gaffer!

Hope this helps!

I decided to take over a team struggling at Christmas time, mirroring real life Sheffield Wednesday are bottom of the Championship, manages to pull the out of relegation danger but still not safe yet!, getting hooked on this save!

Re: ***The Official Football Manager Thread***

In my typical Viborg save, doing many of the things I've done over the years, and as always in FM, I'm a bit of a cup specialist, and we make the Danish Cup Final against our primary rivals in FCM, we've got a good record against them since getting promoted, but they are still the more talented team. I can't say I expected the game to be like this though.

Makes sense for all you guys that have said that. I guess I'm newer to FM as I only started playing in 17. I'm at work so don't have screen grabs but am trying my usual Tier 6 to EPL. I've never been good enough/patient enough with this game, so I've only ever made it to League 1 in the past.

But after multiple years I'm starting to fully get everything, and I'm doing quite well. I took over Boston United, finished 3rd in Tier 6, won in the playoffs to get promoted. I've literally never won in a damn playoff. In FM 20 I was stuck in Vanarama National, made the playoffs 5 straight years and lost 5 straight years.

In my first year in Tier 5, I made wholesale changes and somehow ran away with the league, getting 106 points in my first season.

Started off with an incredibly long unbeaten run in Tier 4, was sitting in 2nd and in the automatic promotion spots. Hit the tougher part of my schedule and some reality hit. I'm now squarely in the playoff picture with 7 games left, but it seems doubtful I'll be automatically promoted. Honestly I'm a bit worried about climbing too quickly so maybe it'll be okay to get stuck for another year or two.

Either way, completely sucked in. Loving the newer press conferences and the player chats. Makes me feel like everything is more important/real...even if it isn't. Trying to be more involved with training too, which I used to ignore completely.

Re: ***The Official Football Manager Thread***

I was wrong, I finished 3rd and am now about to go into the transfer window headed into League One. At some point reality is going to hit, I just donít know when...

Nothing quite like going from 3rd to 1st on the final day.
