  1. Well I certainly wasn't expecting that...
  2. I'm currently the manager of Wolves and I'm doing pretty well however I'd like some advice on how I should protect a lead. Recently I've been going 1, 2 up but I always seem to conceed and it seems to be happening when teams naturally become a little more adventurous with their play and come at me more, and as a result of that some of the matches have made nervous viewing towards the end. What could I do to see out my matches a little more comfortably? Here is my current lineup and shouts.. Atm what I'm usually doing is dropping the mentality down to standard or lower, retaining possession, those players on attack (apart from ST) get reduced to supporting roles & sometimes dropping the MC's down to DMC's. But that's about it.
  3. Finally got round to starting a save having had the game since release! Started as Wolves and I'm doing ok, we sit 6th after 10 games. We've also had a takeover and you'll never believe who our new chairman is... It's only Mr. Goldenballs himself, David Beckham!
  4. Nation: England Division: Sky Bet Championship, League One, League Two European Competition: N/A Media Prediction: N/A Board Expectation(s): Any Transfer Budget: Any Wage Budget: Any Finances: Any Other: As you can see I'm open to any suggestions, the only thing I would like is a side who would be best suited to using a possession orientated 4-2-3-1 system.
  5. He has had his career plans adjusted to improve his chances of being appointed
  6. Interested to know if Guardiola does take the Man City job come the end of the season.
  7. Hoping for a little feedback, Note* These are purely just thoughts atm as I haven't had the time to load up a save and give this a go although I am set on the team I wish to choose. How would one go about getting the most out of a shadow striker? I was thinking something along the lines of a 4231 with a 'winger' on attack, 'Inside forward' on support, 'shadow striker' & upfront a 'deep lying forward' on support with PI's to mimic him being a 'target man' without actually setting him as one. The central midfielder's would just sit so my attacking play would need to come through these four guys. Does these roles seem logical?
  8. Hey guys decided to start a new FM career as Hull City. Just looking for a few bits of tactical advice/suggestions upon starting a save with the current squad. Any certain styles of play I ought to use/avoid? How did you all go about your tactics when beginning as these? Enjoyed reading you're career updates & hopefully if all goes well I'll begin to add my own story in here.
