  1. When i exit the game, It can only be the day before a match and after the press conference, or 1300 if no press conference. I NEVER look at a league table profile screen during the season as i WILL go on a bad run.
  2. I usually start a save in England or Scotland. But after reading this threat, I may start elsewhere soon. I am currently doing a SAF challenge and I am enjoying it for now.
  3. As above, or around the bottom of the screen?
  4. Hi mate, really love your skin, but there is one feature I dont like. Is there a way to move the goal/cards/var desicions etc away from the top center (in front of the clock) of the screen? Sometimes it pops up over the clock and does not drop and I have to guess the time. This is just a bug bear of mine so If you can tell me how to change it, that would be great. Many thanks
  5. If you look at Morrisys thread in the editors hideaway forum, I think he has done them. Its the scottish league thread.
  6. This is 100% me! If I create a tactic, and it works all is good with the world. As soon as I start to under perform, I head straight back PnP tactic and end up staying with it as it is bringing me success. In my current save 2025/26, I have just moved to Watford after dominating Scottish football with Aberdeen using a PnP tactic. At the start of the save, I was using my own 442 and 4411, but after patches etc, my tactic started to under perform and I needed a quick fix. Hello PnP. I'm still using the same tactic I been using the last 4 seasons! My name is Chris, and I'm a Plug and Playaholic
  7. Jeezo mate, what a read and you pretty much described me there! I had plans to delete all p&p tactics from my save (currently in year 26/27) and build my own from scratch. Needless to say, that never happened. I'll be keeping an eye on this thread, thanks mate.
  8. Wow mate, looks great! Is this a WIP?
  9. I must admit, I find this too, especially after I bring a player on in 2nd half. Also, when I use shouts such as "encourage" or "tighten up" can have a negative effect on body language too.
  10. Its looking good, I like the titlebar.
  11. I'm currently in 24/25 season with Aberdeen and no problems on my end.
  12. So, last night I had a wee play. Apart from the 2 CM's, I didnt change the roles else where, I just meesed about with the settings. I actually beat the mighty Barcelona at home after the tweaks. Still going to play about but it does have potential I think.
  13. It wasnt so much how they played that caught my eye, it was the formation on the sky sports app and I thought it looked interesting. I have changed to this combo for now and sort of messing about with the roles. I'm thinking of changing the CB roles to BPD too. As I say, I am a noob when it comes to tactics and this is my first creation that's giving me relative success.
  14. I did have the wingers on support but changed to attack. I am thinking of changing back as results are finally starting to suffer (I knew it was too good to be true lol). I am also considering changing my CM to DLP su, why? Honestly no idea why except a BBM and DLP combo seems to work for me.
  15. Hi Folks. When it comes to tactical creation, I will be the first to admit I am useless. I have been playing CM/FM since the battle of Trafalgar bla bla bla, but when it came to the tactical side of life, I always used other peoples. Even when it came to reading some of the fantastic guides that people on here have written, I could not be bothered going through all the writing and went straight to screenshots and copied them. So yea, as my son would say, I am a noob. Ok, enough of that. After watching the Spurs v Huddersfield game last week, I came up with this formation/tactic. (I was going by the formation on the sky sports app) https://imgur.com/UvdAkHj It is quite an attacking tactic, with goals coming from all over the Park. So far my strikers are scoring as well as my wingers, with the midfield joining in. https://imgur.com/2XqADqP This is my fixtures so far this season. As you can see, I am unbeaten so far. Now I know what some of you are going to say, its 2023, not original squad, you can use any tactic in that year etc. I am just sharing with you what I have mad, it is up to you if you try it or not. I am just looking for some expert advice on what they think. I did get the group of death in the Champ League with Barca, Man Utd and AZ. However, I beat Utd in a friendly and beat AZ 5-0. This is my squad: https://imgur.com/qThICnf Going forward, I am a tad reluctant to change much as, so far, I have a pretty solid base. One thing I have noticed is my players seem to bunch up in the middle of the park, so I am going to look at the attacking width, and may play a bit more with set pieces. I know its not the greatest ever tactic, but its one I came up with, so to me it is lol Anyway, thank you if you have read this. As I say, I am a noob when it comes to tactics, and my write up may not be great. Please let me know if you want to know anything else, and of course, if you want to try it out yourself.
  16. Hi mate, thank you so much for putting time and effort into this skin, much appreciated. Do you happen to know if it will be compatible for high resolution but at 125% zoom? Thanks again.
  17. I support both Dunfermline and Spurs, but i rarely manage them, unless I get offered the job. I usually start in the lower leagues and work my way up.
  18. 2020/21 End of Season update So, its been an interesting season. Getting Cowdenbeath to the dizzy heights of 4th in the Championship, to taking over Aberdeen. I am looking forward to pre-season and getting some good quality players in. I am going to take the bold step and say I am going to challenge for the title, but there is work to be done before hand. So how did Cowdenbeath do I hear you ask? Well, here you go... Needless to say, the season went to rat-poo. I Left on the 15th December, well as you can see, they didnt do too well. Former Dunfermline manager Allan Johnson was appointed as my replacement. I am glad I have Cowdenbeath as my affiliate club, so you never know what will happen. I do feel kinda guilty leaving, I still have the save so may go back in the future.
  19. Aberdeen seem to have an ok wage budget but i need to get more out of them. Signed a player in Jan for the Dons, but its put me over my wage budget.... oops
  20. December update So, as the season goes on, I have been getting updates on Brexit. I dont know about you, but i'm sick of hearing of it, but its part of life and FM, so theses are the new rules for Scotland at least. Anyway, On to Cowdenbeath, The small mining village in Fife. Thing has been pretty good. Despite a very difficult start, the team has gone on to defy expectations. I lost all but 1 games in the Betfred cup, I'm doing pretty steady in the league and i'm in the semi final of the micky mou... I mean challenge cup. Here is the league. The Cowdenbeath supporters and board are very happy, what could possibly happen to ruin all that?? AH.... Well, what can I say. Was far too good to turn Aberdeen. PLus, its only a 2 hour drive up the M90 from where I live so all good. I have moved to the SPFL Premier league, a big step up, and the board want to qualify for the Europa league. Challenge accepted.
  21. Thanks mate. I'm a couple games into the season, and i'm struggling big time. Its going to be a long season for the Blue Brazil.
  22. So, I have decided to stay due to the fact I keep getting a crash dump on the Dunfermline save. The future? Well, I am a semi pro team surrounded by Pro teams looking to get back to the SPFL Premiership. Player recruitment is proving hard. My top goal scorer, Stevie Naismith has returned to his parent club Hibs, and they are refusing to loan him back to me, it looks like he is going to Livingston. I am in desperate need of a good goalkeeper too as mine is away back to Poland. A busy pre-season ahead for me.
  23. So, went to Dunfermline (Not in real life as game has been called off ). Decided to have a wee look at the finance screen, and this is what I have seen: So, what do I do now? Stay at the Blue Brazil, or join the challenge of the Pars.
