Football Manager 2011 - Attribute: Stamina

Type: Physical

Training Category: Strength

Description: The stamina attribute defines how quickly the players condition deteriorates during the match, a higher stamina attribute will mean that the players condition will reduce more slowly. A player with high stamina is able to last the whole game and won't need to be substituted.

The condition of a player doesn't just depend upon their stamina attrbute, it also takes into account the game tempo, player's role, determination and work rate. For example a player who is a box to box midfielder with a high work rate is going to have his match condition decline faster than a central defender that sticks to his position so it is vital for this type of player to have a high stamina attribute.

A high stamina attribute can help late in the game


Useful for Position: Wing backs, Wingers, Central Midfielders.

Works well with: Determination, Work Rate, Natural Fitness.

Pro Tip: Having a team with high stamina attributes for its players means they can out last the opposition, try playing with a high tempo and lots of pressing when not in possession. Those extra bits of energy can make all the difference when chasing a game especially in extra time.

  6. Massively important, which is why conditioning is massive. If everyone's is in great shape, it's like having a 12th man. That's one of the reasons why I love Mourinho. HALA MADRID!
