  1. Past hour
  2. At the moment your player shots at the goal, 3 of your other players are in offside positions in front of the goal. I think that's the reason for the goal not being given. Simple football rules.
  3. I have developed my own successful tactic in FM2019 managing a fourth tier Norweigan team called Lyn Fotball. With this tactic i have managed to take them from the fourth tier to the first divison and am currently top of the league. The tactic relies on playing attacking, attractive football and focuses on scoring goals and lots of them. The idea of the tactic is simply to outscore the opposition and if you have the right players this can easily be done. It relies on fast direct balls over the top to fast forwards who will regularly break the defensive line and find themselves one on one with the keeper. Where possible play will be built from the back, but eventually a direct ball will be launched to the fowards and a clear cut opportunity will arrive. The key to this tactic is to have the 2x AFs and the AML/AMR with high acceleration and pace attributes, (ideally 15 for each or higher) however it can also work with attributes that are 12 or higher. The AFs will need to have decent finishing attributes and decent composure for the best results. They will get a lot of one on ones every single game. You will also need two creative midfielders with a high vision attribute (ideally 12+) as these guys will be creating the multiple clear cut chances you can expect each game. There are two tactics: 4-2-4 Push - Uses a high defensive line so this is useful for games in which you are the favourite or the opposition is parking the bus. I use this tactic in most games and is pretty much plug and play. 4-2-4 Balanced - Same tactic but uses a standard defensive line and a lower level of engagement for the forwards. If the opposition is getting behind your backline and are outscoring you then this can help. Here are three PKM files (recorded matches) which you can place in your My Documents > Sports Interactive > FM2020 > Matches folder and you can view the matches and tactic in game.

Please try out the tactics and let me know what you think and if they work for you. Happy goal scoring folks.

  4. This is just pointless. For no reason, two defeats against Juve and Parma with countless one on one misses. Re-start. Play both games. A draw and a win. The Parma game pushed me over the edge. Parma 1 chance, 1 goal, go down to 10 men, my players created 20 chances including missed 2 or 3 one v one's. It's just so obvious. I knew I was going to lose after 60 minutes. I made subs but I knew it would make no difference. Re-start. Enter a new reality. Win the game. The real lesson here is not to re-start because it shows up the game.
  5. I started unemployed and got a job managing Braintree in the National South. They have some very good players for this level - enough to get promoted first season. Dipo Akinyemi - the pick of the bunch. Beast of a striker who ended up top scorer. Killing it in the division above as well Jason Banton - 5star LW. A little inconsistent but on his day destroys teams on his own. Seems to enjoy big matches and he tore it up in the playoffs. Byron Lawrence - he was at the club on loan when I arrived. Not sure if he starts there. Plays amazing as a carrilerlo and is a bit of a set piece specialist. Notable signings: Phillipe : a Brazilian free agent. Plays from the left or behind the striker. I like to think of him as my Coutinho. Plays best from the bench and is still cutting it on the National League. Ngoo - a 6ft7 striker who can also play on the wings. Ex Liverpool youth who is now in Albania. Very good impact sub off the bench. I had him on loan from January, he was available for free after that as his contract expired but he wasn't interested in negotiations. Mark McKee - he's mentioned above but he's worth mentioning again, his stats are way too good for this level. He's a natural box to box midfielder, however I seem to be getting more out of him recently as a mezzala. Alex Palmer - My big signing after promotion. A freebie goalkeeper from West Brom. He's probably good enough for the professional leagues. Costs a fortune but I had to have him.
  6. I searched but couldn't find this. In my game It's Australia B, not Australia in the Copa America. In reality the full Socceroos are playing, not a B side.
  7. I've absolutely the same problem after hotfix 20.2.1... On the otherside look good to say I've that problem also before the hotfix... Don't know what I've to do.
  8. Can you help please? I can't continue my game...
  9. My documents/sports interative/Skins/YOURSKIN/graphics open the overlay file (the square colour) in photoshop/paint etc and adjust the transparency/opacity
  10. You would be best to open a thread in the Transfers forum of the main Bugs forum and have a save game available from just before one of these players reactions. That way the Devs can have a look at what is happening
  11. Yup. It seems utterly ridicolous that they have such an amazing team
  12. Yes, it was. Do you think some divergence has occured? If there's a way to completely erase all the Steam achievements and start them again, I'd be totally fine with that. I'm just very reluctant to start my save again.
  13. Currently nearing the end of my second season with Arsenal. First season finished 2nd behind City, was back and forth for the lead most of the season but just couldn’t get it done in the end, lost to them at home with 10 games left and never caught up after that. However we won the Europa League, played vs Tottenham in the final. Lost early in the FA/league cups, just didn’t have the squad depth to stay competitive in all those competitions. Got extra money in November so brought in Ceballos permanently and got Ruben Dias to improve defensively. Also Ivan Martinez, Emiliano Martinez’s wage demands were ridiculous so let him go free. First season lots of inconsistent performances, Pepe in particular really struggled to the point I replaced him in the first team with Nelson. Second season going much better. Brought in Luiz Felipe to pair with Dias at CB, Bruno Fernandes, and Erling Haaland. Haaland and Fernandes in particular have been excellent and Pepe has really been great this season as well. Currently in April, played 29 in the league, 1 point behind City but with 3 games in hand. Lost in the league cup final to United, have upcoming CL QF vs Barca and FA cup semifinal vs Liverpool. Right now going with Leno/Ivan Martinez Tierny/Kolasinac Luiz Felipe/Holding Ruben Dias/Saliba Torreira/Xhaka Guendozi/Ceballos Fernandes/Willock Auba/Smith-Rowe and Saka Pepe/Nelson Haaland/Laca Not really playing Ozil so priority upcoming is to offload him, Mustafi, Luiz, Sokratis, Mkhitaryan. Lots of older players with huge wages to clear out.
  14. If anyone has clear cut examples where players definitely need to pass, please report it in the bugs forum with a PKM and the time of the event(s). While I am seeing my players pass, even in 2nd Div Croatia, there are times when they should pass but don't.
  15. It will be playable only after March update, believe me. Last years I start to play the new version only on march
  16. Is there also a chance that the AI is just better (maybe too good) at exploiting tactical weaknesses this year? It’s inconsistent, but that’s how I end up conceding - where I’m flawed. That seems to be obvious, sure, but it doesn’t happen in 95% of games. Yet, when it does, I’m picked apart.
  17. Thanks. I'm sorry for posting this here but can you have someone take a look at these too? Posted this on the forum but haven't got any replies yet. Some of the database are outdated and they're going to be changes regarding the teams in the Malaysian league. For the first issue, which is about the latest feeder teams in the league, I've attached the official statements from the league organisers. https://www.malaysianfootballleague.com/portal/news-details?id=329&fbclid=IwAR2CuScnqeK13ueMPHTgancgrsNW3vssWN_SepOAVgY7UVbfbCY8v_u32ag
  18. Meh think it came across wrong … Was meaning like don't rock the boat too much as its still floating at this time
  19. Did u use pass thru middle tweak or no? Just finished season in LLM, works very good... but curious how is gonna be second season in higher division
  20. How do you do it for normal teams?
  21. Won't happen until forward pass and short pass into space is improved. Also there's big problem with how MCs never go beyond strikers to play one-two's. It was all there in fm17. How many times per game we see onrushing player trying to hit first time cross after short through ball, dozens? But it doesn't happen, fullbacks all dribble down the line with confidence of Messi.
  22. The same FIFA that everybody seems to be crying about? Again a case of being a victim of their own success. If either game was not cutting the mustard it would show in the sales numbers. Stay strong please Si, keep the challenge of the simulation as it should be.
  23. Just fill in the days on which the club trains and leave the other days blank
  24. It is good but like the editor itself it gives complexing errors , if any , which make it hard to track down whats wrong
