IbrahimAliMaher Posted April 26, 2020 Share Posted April 26, 2020 I feel like such a cliche, but my team is having serious difficulties in sticking the round thing between the white goalposty things After sitting through the third away game in a row where we've dominated the chances and struggled to score (38 shots for us to fluke a late headed winner from a corner!) enough is enough. I checked the league stats and we have the second highest shots on target in the division, yet the joint worst conversion rate! It's pretty clear then what the problem is... So the scenario...I'm in my first full season with Bristol City in the Championship (FM19). I took over mid season last year and after some experimentation found that a short passing based, high tempo counter attack style whilst sitting off the opposition seem to be most effective. Since then I've revamped the squad and tried to evolve the tactical style but to little effect. I play either 4-1-4-1 or 4-2-3-1 depending on opposition. At the moment we line up as in the screenshot. I've tried playing a more front-foot style high press based game, players didn't like it. I've tried lowering the tempo to improve conversion rate, no joy. More width to break down more stubborn defences, no good. Away this tactic isn't too bad, as teams attack us more giving us more opportunity to counter and make chances. At home we've struggled as sitting off teams doesn't work when they turn up and park the bus. We are by no means one of the better sides in the division, in fact the team report says we are pretty useless at most things. The only real strength we seem to have is that I signed a lot of fast attackers, but we seem to be good at a short passing game so no point playing direct. Any suggestion as to how to improve conversion rate? Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
