  1. Actually gutted to be honest. This is the first FM I've not enjoyed and have been playing since the CM 01/02 days. To leave the Match Engine in the state it is, is quite unbelievable. I do the same save every year, try get my hometown to the Premier League but I simply cannot get through even a season this year, the matches are so so dull and repetitive.
  2. I thought I'd give it another go with Shrewsbury after this latest update, I can't play anymore than half a season. It is so so dull. It is nearly the same passage of play over and over. I have it on extended highlights and the highlight is either a shot getting blocked, a very weak header straight at the keeper or a set piece. It's literally all wide play with no variation at all. No central play what so ever. I can't believe how backwards the match engine has gone. Back to FM 2017 I go.
  3. I have gone back to FM17 today as I have seen a few people mention in this thread how superior the match engine is to FM20 and wanted to see for myself. It is actually crazy how much better FM17 is, there is so much more variety in goals scored as well as central play. It is actually fun to watch!
  4. I'm sorry but I am genuinely done with this game until the one on ones get fixed. I have just had a game in my Shrewsbury save where my striker has missed 7 one on ones, SEVEN. It's happening every game where at least 2-3 one on ones get missed, I can't remember the last time I scored one, seriously. It's sucking all the fun out of it for me.
  5. Anyone had any experiences with Neil Maupay from Brentford? Just signed him for my Ipswich side. Attributes look good.
  6. Here is a screen of goal locations. I often do concede first and find myself chasing the game but also find I get pegged back pretty quickly if I take the lead. Most highlights for the opponent result in goals, when I have one it almost always ends up in a blocked shot or a long range one. It's hard to understand if I am getting the mentality right, when I score first I tend to carry on the same as I don't want to disrupt something that may be working. Maybe that is wrong? There is a screen of what you asked for, as you can see, I have some decent players, look at my above post as we

  8. The problem I have is what tweaks do I make, I try to tweak things but before you know it you've tweaked things that much you've lost focus on how you wanted to play in the first place. I've tried taking Dribble Less off and Counter-Press but it doesn't seem to improve anything. I think my team is very capable of a possession style, I have some good players, I can post some of their profiles if you like? I have tried using Complete Forward, like I said in the opening post, neither seem to really produce anything of worth and it doesn't seem to matter which role I choose. I have messed
  9. I'd get on board with that mate and to a certain extent I agree. I don't expect to beat any of the top teams at all but when I have that amount of possession against one of them I'd hope we did something with it now and again. The main grip I have is when we play teams around us or below.. this is a game I have just played: Same problem again, loads of the ball but created pretty much nothing..
  10. Alright everyone. A little background before I explain about why I'm posting this thread.. I have been playing the Championship Manager/Football Manager series since CM 01/02 so I'm no newbie to the series. I'd say I'm average at the game, I do alright every year, my goal is always the same, take my hometown of Shrewsbury to the Premier League title and I usually achieve that so I like to think I can't be awful haha. Anyway, that goal is the same this year and I'm currently in my 9th season with them sitting mid table in the league at the January mark. This is my 3rd season in the Prem no
  11. Since this latest patch I am conceding a ridiculous amount of long shots, anyone else? Like so ridiculous it's getting to the point I'm fearing every long range effort.
  12. Oh definitely, I never imagined we would end up where we did, only picking up 10 losses all season is brilliant in the grand scheme of things. BUT, it's in the fashion it happened. It seemed to go from unbelievable form to very very mixed just because we lost one single game and then a complete meltdown at the end. I agree the pressure and big games could of played a part in the bad form at the end but we don't know for sure. When you hit bad form in your saves do you persevere with the tactic you originally made or completely change it up? It always confuses me on what I should do in that pos
  13. So I have just finished the most unbelievably gutting season I have ever had on any FM. I am playing as Shrewsbury, my home town team. I managed to get promoted via the play offs in my 3rd season to the Championship. Missed out on the play offs by a point first season and had a disappointing mid table finish in the second season. My first season in the Championship nearly ended with a fairy tale finish but it got snatched away from me on the last day of the season with an 81st minute free kick. A draw would of been enough to clinch promotion and the title when I was predicted to be in a relega
  14. Great mate, just purchased. In my Steam library waiting to go!
  15. I have. Do I need to transfer funds in to there first then pay using it?
  16. My debit card doesn't seem to be getting accepted? :(
  17. I'm not playing as Liverpool but wanted some advice from you all, how good does Woodburn turn out? I have a 30 million bid accepted for him and a 60 million bid accepted for Rashford. Trying to build a very English driven team, who should I go for? Cheers.
  18. Picked this lad up on a free at the start of 18/19 season and has been fantastic for me. He's only on very cheap wages as well and is now worth over 8 million! I'm sure you'd be able to pick him up in League 1 as well, he has been absolutely on fire for me this season playing in an Attacking Midfield role.
  19. One thing that has always confused me. When an update like this is pushed, will these changes be in my current save or will they only take effect when I create a new save on the new update? Thanks.
  20. I love the skin but on the player profile page there is one thing that bugs me. It doesn't say anywhere what the player is valued at? Or am I going blind?
  21. He literally scouted Germany though and forgot all his knowledge in like a month of game time?
