  1. Past hour
  2. I will start this thread by saying that FM is on urgent need to change some of the core game, we definitely want the better football simulation. Mods and devs always say "constructive feedback",so here we go: Training: Training is basically the most important part of football. I played 6 years in semi-pro/amateur teams,and the most part of the time we were training and learning the tactics and strategies for the next game. In my opinion,we need to stay more time planning for the next game, look how our players are doing in training, plan a game-training to see what they are understanding about the tactic, choose with more depth what training we gonna lead that day, and for the lazy people, give it to the ass-man . Tactics and Philosophy: FM needs to work better in the TC. Offensive and defensive formations are a thing in football nowadays, actually, it is absolutely important in every team. No one defend and attack in the same shape. If FM wants to be called "football simulation", it also need the basic. TI and PI needs to have their descriptions rewrite, a lot of players get confused about what they use in their tactics, and need to get to the forums to know that X TI does Y, not X. Team shape also need to be looked, I've seen players in this forum and also others that always get very confused about what every single one of it does. Players: More PPM's are needed. Why? To not do players slave from their role. Just look at Neymar,Hazard and Cristiano. Both play in the same position, have good stats and can play both feet, besides their stats, what is the difference between then in FM? Not many. But looking at RL, Neymar likes to do tricks against his opponents, while Hazards like to dribble them quickly,and Ronaldo like to score.This should be in their PPM's, like : Neymar( Challenge opponent, likes to do tricks), Hazard (Dribbles a lot), Ronaldo (Individualist, likes to get in the box). This would get the feel that players are not simply bots with stats,but they are actually players, sometimes roles simply dumb players to only do what he is asked, and this don't get the feel that you are playing with players, but robots. This are some complains that I have about FM series that really needs to get some changes and upgrades,in my opinion of course. (Sorry for any wrong grammar, english is not my first language.)

  4. If it's in line with the rules, that's fine. Glad to have you on board. The main rules are 20 years old at start and no exp / quals. Will you be on the leader board? You're still doing the challenge on FM15? That's ok. @Minuy600 Welcome to the challenge. Hope you have a good season at PP. @blackdevil Congrats on your season in Germany. Wonder if you'll be able to pick up each remaining club trophy in one season each.
  5. Well done going straight back up after one squeak too many. Going much better now you are back up too.

    Bloody Kids...

    Oh it gets better... so I finally accept £6m plus a 50% sell on clause and the idiot can’t agree terms with Tottenham!! Seriously, after weeks of pouting, it comes to this. The other is still annoyed because I haven’t let him join Tottenham, even though he rejected there contract! Cant make this stuff up...

    Possession and verticality

    Thanks! I'll try your suggestions and update with how is working out. I loved @herne79 thread, will help A LOT. About analysis, I like this one in the Bundesliga YouTube channel. Is more fresh and use real life footages: I like the fact that they have the second highest ball possession % in Bundesliga even with this playing style. Some things I don't think are possible to replicate like this vertical positional play and the Vogt role, but with TI attacking mentality my CMs will probably touch the box more often. In structure I am trying to decide between structured and flexible, I'm going to do some tests. I want to exploit the fact that Roma have some good passing players in these deep positions, maybe make De Rossi trying to emulate Vogt. I have some questions about high pressing with only two strikers, but plan to work on this later

    World Cup adverts

    Maradona's Brazilian national team ad for Guaraná is also nice, but I am not sure if it's a World Cup ad:

    Saw my first World Cup advert early, a rubbish Pringles one. What's Nike got up their wallets this year? Some great adverts over the years, Brazil's Nike Airport mess around from 98 probably still my favourite. /Content.

    I rang an old buddy of mine in the Met the next day. It was the Friday before Christmas and while many were winding down, the Met was preparing itself for a busy weekend. My friend sounded harassed when he answered the phone. “Chandler” he breathed in his hoarse voice. “Ray! It’s Marlowe. I know you’re busy, so let me get straight to the point. What can you tell me about Andy Jones’ death?” I asked him. He let out an expletive and said: “Haven’t heard from you in a while. Still chasing ambulances?” “Not quite” I answered, gruffly. “Right” he replied. “Andy Jones. Was that the car crash?” “Supposedly” I said “What’s that supposed to mean?” he asked, “The daughter thinks he was murdered” I said bluntly “She’s out of her mind. Guy drove straight through a red. The garbage truck had no chance... ” “You got that on camera?” I interrupted. “No, but..” “Also, what’s a garbage truck doing, driving around late at night? I don’t know about you, but my trash gets picked up in the day-time” “Oh-kay, I see what you’re getting at. But as far as the brass is concerned, this case is closed” Chandler said. “So, you can send me a copy of the file?” I tried to put a cheerful note in voice, but failed. “Ah look Marlowe, you’re not going to cause a whole load of trouble, are you?” he asked again. “I never cause trouble” I lied. “Yeah sure. I’ll see what I can do about the file, but don’t expect it before Christmas. This place is manic” “Sure thing, Ray. Thanks. Have a good one” “You too Marlowe” he rang off.

    Making great progress this season.
  19. That is an amazing deal for Allison! He'd cost you at least 60M more in real life at this point! Welcome to the challenge, @paulskln, and best of luck to you with Swansea! Going to add you to the active board now!

  22. Hi all, I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to football manager. I'm currently playing a save in Scotland with Rangers and I'm trying to develop a counter attacking 3-5-2. I'm a big fan of counter attacking football and think it's the best way to go if I want to get results against Celtic and in Europe. Here's pics of the tactic as it currently stands: I want to build a team that doesn't concede a lot of goals. Three rigid CBs who are big and dominant in the air. Two guys in front of the CBs who will protect the defense and win the ball back. This should limit the amount of chances opposition teams can create through the centre. My wing-backs are my only width and since they'll be doing a lot of attacking I expect crosses to come in to my box but as long as I recruit the right CBs heading the ball clear shouldn't be an issue. In terms of the attack, I've put an attacking playmaker in front of my CDMs to bring the ball out as prior to this I had a Enganche just behind the strikers and almost none of my attacks came down the middle. HE seems to be functioning quite well as my main creative player. He gathers the ball and most of the time sprays it out to a wing-back who will then put in a cross. I'm not sure what combination of strikers I should have. Right now I have a supporting target man and an attacking CF. With the amount of crosses coming in the target man is getting most of the goals but I don't see him pressing the opposition back line much even though I've instructed him to press more. Should I replace the Target man with a defensive forward? The CF seems to drop in to channels rather than being my main scorer which is frustrating as Rangers have a very good CF in Morelos who could really lead the line well. Does anyone see obvious weakness in my setup? Any tips on how I can improve it? Is a BWM and an Anchor Man a good combo in front of the back three? Am I getting the most out of my two strikers? I'm going to try and develop my set-pieces so all three of my CBs are in the opposition box for corners. This, along with my target man, should prove quite useful and get me a few goals.
  23. February 2041 Still holding on to a playoff spot with 8 games to go...can we make it?
