  1. I have very minimal PI's with the exception of WB's 'Stay Wider' and instead focus on the right Player Traits. My philosophy is to keep the tactic more fluid, particularly in the midfield where all of my players are phenomenal all around players and I didn't want to limit them (with a BWM role) or force play through them (with a playmaker role). I have been very happy with how the team plays, in particular: 1) The CB's are true ball players and will drive forward with the ball if the space is available or look to bypass the midfield three with balls directly into the front three, beh
  2. End of the third season and having a great time of things! Won the league for the second year straight, 2 points ahead of Liverpool and 4 ahead of Manchester United. Was knocked out of the UCL by PSG in the semis, though we deserved to go through to the final, which was eventually won by Liverpool. Going into the season Reiss Nelson was my starting Left Inside Forward but he tore his ACL, so Nketiah stepped into that role and did a fantastic job, scoring 17 goals. Haaland was the player of the season, scoring 26 goals, tied with Kane for league leader, with an average rating of 7.72! I gu
  3. I had a deal all locked up for Christian Romero but his Work Permit got denied... Very frustrating! Good get for you.
  4. Well we've just shat the bead in the the FA Cup Final of the second season against Brighton; but all is not lost as we won the League 7 points ahead of Liverpool and City! Pepe was star of the show taking home the Player of the Year award with 24 goals in the League. We got knocked out of Europe by Porto in the First Knockout Round which was disappointing. As the season progressed I simplified my tactic to the below, though the CF's in the system (Lacazette and Haaland) haven't really been scoring so I have been toying with the idea of playing Haaland as a CF(a) for next season, though I
  5. There is a game plan thing which is a great feature! The only downside is that there is a bug whereby if you choose a Match Plan the Ass Man won't make any subs... So I usually go the route of not choosing a Match Plan and allowing my Ass Man to make subs, though it depends upon the freshness of my players.
  6. Thanks for the response! I do see that when I set my match plan to "No match plan" subs were made! Hopefully this will get resolved soon!
  7. To make matters even more confusing, during my Pre Season Friendlies of Season 2 the Ass Man DID make substitutions (and subbed basically the entire squad). However when I reverted to the Premier League it went back to no subs. I did not make any changes to the Match Plans. Are there any Settings/Preferences I should adjust? Should I maybe try a different skin or something? I can't be the only one with this issue!! This is killing me!! EDIT: I have Head Coach set to manage friendly matches if it matters...
  8. I have been having a fantastic time playing with Arsenal this year and I am more addicted to this FM than any in recent memory. Granted, I play FMT and do 'Instant Result' for most games so a different experience than a lot of you... My 2019/2020 was a huge success coming in third in the League (a point behind City, 6 behind Liverpool) and beating Bayer 04 in the Euro Cup Final. I played a possession oriented 4-2-3-1 with Ozil as my Playmaker with Auba as an Advanced Forward scoring 30 goals in all competitions with Lacazette bagging 15 from an Inside Forward role on the Left Wing. F
  9. Edit: the below is not true... "Interestingly, if I go on vacation the Ass Man DOES make substitutions... strange bug..."
  10. I am playing FM Touch 2020 and using Instant Result with both standard and custom match plans and my Assistant has yet to make a sub (I've played one full season). Is there a fix for this? Here's how I have it setup...
  11. Bumping this old thread... I am playing FM Touch 2020 and played an entire season with Arsenal and my Ass Man never made one sub! Is there a fix for this? Here's how I have it setup...
  12. How is Joe Willock performing for you? I worry that his Passing and Vision aren’t strong enough to be the driving attacking force for a high level squad like Arsenal...
  13. Really enjoying FM19. Haven't been this addicted in over 5 years. I play FM Touch and enjoy the stripped down version that lets me get through a season in about 15 hours (I simulate most 'easy' matches). The transfer system does seem a bit wonky and I am having a really tough time selling my players. The first season was up and down as I fiddled with a back 3, back 4, two up front, one up front, etc. but ended the season in fourth and lost in the Europa League Final. Second season went with the traditional 4-2-3-1 setup with a slightly modified gegenpressing tactic (tried more p
  14. How has Jadon Sancho been for you? He is Transfer Listed in my save at the end of the first season for $40M USD. Can't decide if he is THAT much better than Smith-Rowe and Nelson...
  15. In past versions of Football Manager Touch I believe you could change the attribute colour/color (I'm American...) in the Interface/Settings screen. Is this still possible in FMT 2019?
