  1. I'm far from an expert here but how can playing wider help with short possession football? Surely if the players are further apart they'll have to make longer passes?
  2. Do you just leave passing to default or select direct passing?
  3. Jones and McCombe are both very slow but great in the air. Gonna have to play deep or risk pacey forwards tearing you apart
  4. only 500 hours compared to 1350 on FM13
  5. I've used the same shape for a couple of years now but after reading about a certain Barca game I used a TargetMan on Support with a ShadowStriker just below to the left.
  6. Could someone please kindly point me in the direction of the page where you see how your team compares to all the others such as worst passing side etc..
  7. can you not try a system restore?
  8. How do you specific man mark the full backs on FM14? Used to be a quick easy way on FM13 on the same tab as target opposition player but it's gone now
  9. On other FM's, you could select specific man marking quickly during games but the old option isn't there now. Can you still do it?
  10. In all previous FM's I've always played with a pressing tactic which I selected through the team instructions. This effected all 10 outfield players but now the options have been removed how does it work in FM14? I've gone through individual instructions and the odd player can be told to close down more. Do all teams just press at the same basic level now or am I missing something?
  11. Excellent read this. As a PNE fan. I've been to Walsall many times over the last 20 years or so and have always had a good day out. Massive respect to them for the way they are running things and the way they are healthily taking the club forwards.
  12. The last few years I've clock up about 1500 hours a year on FM which works out at 3.5 hours a day for a full year of my life. I wont be scrimping and saving to try and find someone selling the game £5 cheaper than someone else. I'll just get it on Steam the moment it unlocks
  13. Bummer. Am I wasting my time with this save then or will we be able to meet criteria eventually on the game?
  14. Currently playing in India in 2017 and having won the league 3 times on the bounce have only qualified for the confederation cup. We've now won this twice and still have no idea how I can get to play in the champions league. Anyone any ideas?
  15. I play with a BWM but go to his tactic instructions and change Hard Tackling to normal to cut all the fouls out if he is picking up cards
