  1. Past hour
  2. Everything is relative. I already had 2 big useless blokes attacking the posts so I want something different. I use my strikers because they are generally the best finishers. From time to time I have had a DLP with great technique and very good long shots and in that situation he would make a good lurker, (although I still like the player in that position to advance with the ball). They don't have to be your strikers, but I want to offer a clinical threat rather than a brute force threat, so in my squad that means my 2 strikers. Something I also think about is what happens when and
  3. Also separate post: Must be nice to have Sugar Daddy! I'm Jealous..... My team can't even pay the staff let alone the players....with the turnover!
  4. I appreciate your thinking and opinion. I will reflect on it with my own teams. Also I don't have a 17 Long throw....but if I ever have the chance again..... What are the characteristics of the GF players....I watch a lot of soccer but don't understand the intricacies, so all of this is helpful. (I became a fan and FM player later in life FM14, but I treat it more like a strategy game)

  6. After the group stage, our leader @HOORAY HENRIK is now 11 points clear. The chase is on.
  7. Hello, Is there a way to disable the option of the CPU managers being fired, unless being relegated using the In-Game editor or the pregame editor? If so, what are the instructions to do so? Thanks in advance
  8. The truth is that there isn't a simple answer to this one. They all play a part; but my thinking here is that we have to win the ball before the game decides whether it ends up with a shot on target or not. Heading doesn't determine if the player wins the header, so at this stage it's out of my thinking, (or at least moved to the back of my mind). Then it gets a little harder. You have strikers who are likely to have good off the ball scores allowing them to lose their markers, but the players with the best jumping and strength attributes are generally going to be your centre-backs so yo
  9. Totally agree. I've said after their first game that there's no way Germany are going to keep a clean sheet in this tournament, so sitting back and hitting them on the counter or from set pieces (which they've been defending really poorly so far) is the way to beat them. If Hungary can put two past them, heck, if Adam "one-goal-all-season" Szalai can score against them, then England will, too.
  10. Season 2021/22 After a belated start to our campaign, we finally got underway. Assessing the limited options on hand, we alternated between a 4-2-3-1 and a 4-1-2-3 for most of the campaign, mainly settling on the former. To say it was a mixed affair would be an understatement, hovering closer to the relegation spots than was comfortable early on before settling in to a lower table placing. The one bright spot of the opening season was our unexpected progress to the 3rd Round of the FA Cup, but sadly for our finances, our only reward was a home tie against West Ham who made short work of u
  11. NK TOŠK Tešanj, Bosnia. Apr 2024. M:tel Premijer Liga. We might be unbeaten this month, but it's not enough. The equaliser that we conceded to Široki Brijeg broke our hearts and spirit. It was the 95th minute and we deserved to win and had we done would have resulted in a 4 point swing, (which is what the difference is now), and the only reason we drew to Tuzla is as a result of the previous draw. I'm sure of that. We have 4 games left and 3 of them are against decent opposition. I think there is next to no chance of us winning all 4 and that's what is needed if we are to have any chance
  12. Today
  13. Yeah unfortunately I'd drummed it into him since he came through. It was a good move he had lined up though to a well established side, deluded of him to think he can get back in my team ahead of the £50m first choice RB and the £26m back up ahead of him. That and I have another two kids ahead of him in the pecking order...
  14. Never had a problem retraining positions. Tbh, it is one of the most fun things to do in game. I’ve found Mezzala’s make good attacking WB’s. But theoretically anyone can be trained there. I once had an 18 year old ST that had good positioning and decent tackling for some reason. Turned him into a beast of a FB. Newgen attacking FB’s and WB’s have been an issue for a few versions now. They are like gold dust. Only way to combat it is to retrain. I don’t do anything fancy. Just get them to train the position in individual training and give them as much game time as possible.
  15. Sorry about that, I was referring to everyone who just kept posting more or less the same thing over and over again. Fair enough. Then everyone who's posting this over and over again should know better than not to generalize. I'm sure that regular folk in Hungary all love and support Orban, right? He's in charge, so he must be universally loved? You had the fortune to be born in a country where democracy is at least functional, don't judge people from countries where it's not. Because fairytales of mass protest or anything similar are just fairytales and never work. No
  16. I think this is a bit wishful thinking. Dechamps' France and Hungary have made Germany look average through defensive safety first football whereas Portugal got murdered when they tried to engage in end-to-end you-counter we-counter football. I know people understandably want to see England go more attacking, but if anything the group stages have shown the opposite to "if we don't attack we don't win" and that the way to beat Germany is by shutting up shop.
  17. We have the players, we have the home advantage...will we do it....god knows....but Tuesday is going to be one helluva match.....cmon England.
