  1. I tried to have a team meeting before The Champion's League final and the message was "There isn't a suitable reason to hold a team meeting", really?
  2. Loaning a young player out for a season, does it still count as being trained at your club: age 15-21?
  3. John Terry is managing Middlesbrough and we just beat them 8-0. In the post-match press conference he said "They just got lucky" OMG, I am dying here
  4. All the info you NEED is there, for goodness sakes, just set it up yourself. Want Fuss to play the game for you too?
  5. What's missing that you can't set up this tactic from his explanation? Gosh, even tells you what sort of players you need and if you can't set up your own set pieces, play Fifa instead...OMG!!
  6. Holy Moly fellas, everyone so lazy that you can't set up this tactic yourself? ALL the info is there....SHEEESH!!!! And BTW, it works really well!!
  7. Is it just me? Some of the ridiculous comments made by opposition managers are befuddling. I just beat Wolves 3-1 with 30-12 SOG and 58% - 42% possession and his comment was "I'm amazed we didn't get a win out there,................but their performance was ordinary today and I am stunned things didn't go our way..............................etc" Come on really? What's with these stupid comments?
  8. where is that? i just had a quick look and couldn't see a feedback thread
  9. I don't post very often but I do read read posts and I've noticed so many negative comments towards SI. I am an old guy who has been playing the game since the very first CM when Danny Murphy was the most amazing wonderkid ever and let me tell you, the game has come a long, long way. It makes me chuckle how mad some people get with the game and with SI. Could the game to better, sure but you have to remember how extremely complex the game really is and how one thing affects another. I have taken Brighton to the PL, qualified for EL and then to CL. The club is rich and has a world wide rep now so if I can do it then it proves that it is absolutely possible. I have had some of the problems people complain about like player unrest, not being to sell players occasionally, strikers having terrible games etc but NEVER to the point where steam comes out of my ears and am compelled to vent on these forums. I imagine that being a RL football manager is way harder than this game. I only posted this time because I read some of the most ridiculous posts, things like PL teams should be able to boycott League Cup because their team is so successful that their game schedule is too tight, come on, really? If there are things that bother people so much why not just use the editor to fix it instead of hurling unpleasant comments towards SI. Do you really think that the SI team wouldn't want the game to be as good as possible? Also remember SI is a commercial enterprise with fiscal obligations and that FM is only a game.
  10. I am only in 3rd season and when I tried the tactic it was pretty fluid, not far from my own tactics but over 5 games it wasn't good for me. 4L & 1W with 13 goals against and 8 goals for. I think the league/country you play in makes a difference.
  11. I am half way thru my 3rd season with Vitesse and am leading the league, 24 games with 3 draws & 2 losses. I had a look at your tactic, familiarity was close so I gave it a bash. 5 games with absolutely no changes, game 1 lost 3-1. 2nd game won 4-2, 3rd & 4th games lost 3-1 and 5th game lost 2-1 to the team coming dead last who just set a league record for most games without a win. Don't think I need to mention what my board thought. Anyway maybe the style just doesn't suit The Holland Total Football way of play. BTW, all my goals were scored from corners and none from open play while the opposition were carving me open at will.
  12. No it wasn't. A normal goal from open play.
  13. I don't know if this really helps or is just a coincidence, but I hired and new head physio with high fitness and of course physio ratings and my injuries have gone down dramatically. Anyone else found this?
  14. I just played a game where I was the heavy favourite which I won 1-0. I had 20 shots, 11 OT while the opposition only had 4 with 1 OT. Their GK was almost unbeatable, pulling off saves left, right and centre. After the game I had a look at the stats and to my amazement my GK had a match rating of 7 while the opponents GK only had 6.1. My questions is, why such a low rating?
  15. Other things that you need to think about are........Perhaps your team isn't technical enough to play a short passing game and your defense isn't quick & intelligent enough to play a high line. So when staring use minimal shouts. Use retain possession, pass into space, work into box, look for overlap & more discipline. Don't forget your mentality also dictates your width and depth. Counter & defensive mentalities automatically drops your defensive line and makes you play narrower, while the more attacking mentalities pushes you up and plays a little wider. You may also want to play one of your forwards as a defensive forward to try and win the ball back much higher up the pitch. One thing you must do is have a close look at your players role's and ask yourself if they can actually play that role? When you play games watch them in longer modes and in transition, when you loose the ball or win it back pause the game and have a look at where your players are. See the shape of your team. Have a look at loose opposition players or are your players getting into good attacking positions? Risk and reward!
  16. How about having to complete tasks to get your coaching licenses. Having to win X amount of games in a row to get B & A licenses and perhaps having to win league or a cup to get your Pro License or something like that?????????
  17. I loved 14.2.2 Since the update the game is terrible. AI GK virtually unbeatable. My GK & defenders are now making terrible mistakes they never made before. My GK with no pressure passed the ball across the face of his goal only for an opposition player to waltz in for a tap in while my keeper was stranded on the other side of his 18 yard box. Another classic moment was when 4 of my defenders just outside the penalty area were all scrumming for the ball, 3 off them fell over and their striker just took the ball and scored. It was like a 10 pin bowling alley with all my players going down in a pile, it was pretty funny. I am 15 games in since updating(a saved game) and prior to 14.3 sergio aguero had scored 21 goals and since the patch just 1. Even from point blank range he can't score to save his life. Also now there seems to be many more yellow/red cards and a lot of players picking up knocks. I have not changed my tactics drastically since 14.2.2 just trying to tweak but very unsuccessfully i'm afraid. Some things have improved, passing and movement but overall the game experience is much worse. The main thing imo is, I think you guys tweaked the AI GK too much. Anyway to take the game back to 14.2.2?
  18. No. A lot of the time fullbacks are better attackers than your wingers are defenders, not all the time but a lot. So if wingers mark fullbacks, especially tightly they just get skinned.
  19. The opposition does some funky things at the far post sometimes so I always put 2 men there. I also have 1 on six yard box and 1 at edge of the area. While I still do concede goals from corners it's not over the top. Taking corners I aim at near post with my best 2 headers there. 1 to attack near post and the other to flick on. A few games ago I had a post match press conference and the question was, "Another clean sheet today, your team as now gone 453 minutes without conceding a goal, blah blah". I haven't found set pieces to much of a problem. Also you can set match training to defend set pieces. Hope this helps.
