View Full Version : Sudden Increase in Sendings Off

04-10-18, 01:54 PM
It's early February 2010, and I've now had players dismissed a total of 12 times in all competitions this season. This is a MASSIVE increase on all of my previous seasons.

It's essentially the same players I had in my previous season, and the same tactics. I'm totally at a loss to understand why this is happening. There's no happiness issues whatsoever in the squad, nobody's moaning about wanting new contracts or wanting more game time. We're sitting top of the Premiership and still in all competitions (including the CL). It's almost like some sort of 'nutter flu' has infected the entire squad!

Has anyone else ever experienced anything like this?

If there are no happiness issues then it's just a bad case of randomness.

Yes this happens.
Basically the AI is putting obstacles in your way to try to beat you. You will get a spate of injuries, often hitting players in the same position, or a sequence of super keepers, or in your case red cards. It happens, nothing you can do about it but grin and bear it and hope it passes quickly.

It is worth giving all of your squad a regular physio check (I do them all every year and use a different physio each time) to make sure none have a specific issue. If they do, send them for rehab.
