  1. I have had this 15 year old, 6'5 beast come into my club via my first season youth intake & just wondering what approach I should now take to help him reach his potential before I inevitably have to sell him on? My HOYD said he has the potential to be one of the best of his generation.
  2. I signed Doucoure for my PSG side and as a mezzala on attack he is currently my top scorer for the season on 8. Deffo have a midfield to build around in that Watford squad
  3. Just about to begin my 2nd season as PSG. 1st season I won the league in some style winning 31 games & drawing 7. However I was knocked out of the domestic cups in the latter stages, both on pens & Liverpool gave me a real good battering in the CL quater finals. Signings in the first season were: Dubois, Ndombele, Elneny (loan) & Ikone (loan). I sold Draxler for around £40mil to Real Madrid. Signings so far for my 2nd campaign are: Ferland Mendy, Doucoure & Felix Joao. Lo Celso has come back looking mightily impressive from his loan spell so he is now in
  4. I would absolutely love to set up a system similar to that of Chris Wilder @ Sheffield United, the overlapping centre backs is truely a unique style, but correct me if I am wrong this would be difficult/impossible to do with the current match engine. I have attempted to create something relatively similar with the other aspects of the style Wilder uses on a throwaway save and it seemed to work not too bad considering I am pretty poor playing this game. His man management style is something I like to try and model all my teams on too. Basically I love this man haha.
  5. Looking to start a save in the Championship, leaning towards starting as Ipswich Town. Any reccomendations for players from League One, Two or even the National League who are capable of playing in the championship?
  6. Wondering what roles people use for or would use for Hernandez & Saiz if trying to replicate the real life formation 4231? Hernandez (IF(s)) & Saiz (AP or AM)?
  7. Late to the party playing FM18 this year, I'm now waiting on the latest update before getting stuck into a save game. But I have been messing about taking over various clubs and trying different formations & styles. This was my first game with Celtic using a 4-3-3 (3 central midfielders & 2 inside forwards). *Note the times of the goals scored. It was over before it really begun.
  8. Currently using a 3-5-2 counter attacking system. My strikers tend to be AF & DLF (s). The DLF (s) player is more suited to a Target Man so I have given him this role and added the PI (Dribble Less). My AF however can be susceptible to injury and my only backup striker has the PPM 'come deep to get the ball' & just doesn't suit playing the same role, he is a player with a v.good workrate though. What other roles are there that I could potentially use to compliment my other forward the DLF (s)?
  9. Read up on this thread recently and implemeted some of the things said along the way into my own tactic. Currently using a 3-5-2 wing back formation with Burton no TI's/no PI's. It seems to be going pretty well so far I have currently just battered Sheffield Wed***day 4-0, which as a United fan pleases me greatly. Kudos to Cleon for this thread and others who have contributed.
  10. Thankyou for that @axehan1 Now I would really appreciate it if someone would be so kind as to show a couple of screenshots of players from a side I'm likely to begin a save with when the game is released. Reason for wishing to see their attributes and PPM's etc now is because I'd like to see if they'll fit in nicely with a desired tactic I currently have jotted down. (Sad I know) Erhun Oztumer Simeon Jackson Florent Cuvelier Franck Moussa Andreas Makris Bet you couldn't guess the team I'm leaning towards beginning with...
  11. Would it be possible to get screenshots of: Aaron Ramsdale Louis Reed Ben Whiteman Mark Duffy David Brooks
  12. 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
  13. On paper is their any obvious flaws that i may not be seeing in this 4-4-2 formation, I've yet to decide on instructions as this is something I feel I will tailor depending on my opponents, weather etc.. Mentality - Standard, Balanced. GK: G(D) RB: FB(A) CB: CD(D) CB: CD(D) LB: FB(S) RM: W(S) CM: CM(D) CM: CM(S) LM: WM(A) ST: F9 (S) or (DLF (S) when my backup forward plays who has better strength.) ST: AF (A)
