  1. Because 'back up' is a first team squad player. A 17 yo needs 'youngster' or 'hot prospect' status to put up with being in u23's
  2. Scouting will tell you the chances of getting a work permit. I don't know if you can filter searches for this though

    Pochettino 4-2DM-3-1

    I've been using this tactic with Spurs in my 3rd season. Very effective. I've made a couple of changes to suit my team: 1) take shorter passes off my RPM 2) take off 'get stuck in' 3) change crossses to 'whipped' Also will use exploit left or right or both if I feel there's a weakness to expose. Teams playing well and results are generally good. Although it looks like this will be the first year we don't win the title. I put that down to a horrific injury crisis and me messing about with tactics too much before settling on this one in November (in game).
  4. So are penalties broken? Is this an issue thats being looked at? Into December 3rd season and my team have converted 1 of 6 (I have good penalty takers, Kane and Berardi) who have converted at better than 95% the last two seasons. All their misses are hit straight at the keeper. Bug worth logging or ??

    Gonna give this a go. Question, what purpose does the RPM having 'shorter passing' have? Surely the idea with that kind of player is that his intelligence will decide when it's best to go long or short? Does this instruction stop him from hitting the quick ball for a counter when the opportunity arises? Also, does the AF get isolated with no other Attack duties around him? I used Dele as a SS and this really suits him.
  6. Well Chelsea wouldn't let me have him even when I bid up to £150m (I'm Spurs) despite him wanting to join. I'd have been delighted to pay only £120m
  7. He means have a right footer take left corners and vice versa
  8. There's a big red warning on the transfer screen when you're over the limit. You're doing well to miss it.
  9. There no ME changes in the update so tactics won't be affected. Must be your morale/team talks/press conferences affecting team performances
  10. I used a similar set up with Spurs (won CL & PL 1st season) with Eriksen off the left. As my season evolved I made some tweaks you might want to consider. I dropped the CM/D to DMC as a DM/D. I switched Dele's role to SS to provide more of a goal threat & switched Kane to a CF/S. These two changes in particular got more goals out of both of them.
  11. One thing that annoys me, and this was in FM16 also, so I'm guessing it's by design, is having to pick set piece takers for every tactic. Why on earth would I choose differently?
  12. Only played one season (won PL & CL). Edwards had a 2 month lay off due to injury but played around 16 games (6 starts) & scored 3 with 2 assists (including a beautiful pass for our 4th in the CL final in a very good 15 minute cameo). His potential means I'm selling Sissoko and he'll be a big feature in season 2.
