Paul Barton Posted June 21, 2020 Share Posted June 21, 2020 (edited) Hey all, I used to play FM a lot back in the day - especially when younger in the Championship manager days. I used to love the pick up and play ability. Got frustrated with the FM series as it's far more complex and I always manage to get sacked or just do badly! Bought a new laptop couple of weeks back and thought i'd give FM another go - but i'm struggling again already! I've started a save with Dortmund & I just can't seem to find any consistency even though I feel as if i'm playing logical tactics (I'm sure you'll point out that what i'm doing actually isn't logical!). My team / system is screenshotted. I'm trying to pass the ball out from the back whilst playing a passing type game & pressing high up the pitch. I have Guerreiro as attacking with Reus cutting into leave some space. This has worked fairly well to some degree. Witsel playing more defensive to try and cover for when Guerreiro pushes forward. Is the pressing game & short passing the right way to play with Dortmund? I just got spanked 5-0 away to Bayern which is why I'm now calling for help! I still don't really understand how everything pieces together - but I really want to learn & enjoy the challenge! Just need some more knowledge on what exactly what you guys think i'm doing wrong and how you'd solve the potential problems as in my head, I should at the very least be top 2 with Dortmund & i'm around 9th. Any help or tips much appreciated! Also - how should I look to adapt things when playing away? Especially against the bigger sides...
