  1. I used to struggle a lot on this game and I've been on the tactics forum asking for help before. I was prone to over complicate things and I'm sure many people who play this game are. The truth is, the more simple you lay out a tactic, the easier it is to identify problems. Now when I want to play a certain formation all i do is google it and the amount of websites that cover that specific formation are astronomical. Then I try and replicate that in the tactics creator. The majority of these sites go in extreme detail but it's actually an aston villa fan site that I used to make make my last three tactics simply because they didn't include an entire essay on how to build a tactic but instead they provided the absolute bread and butter basics. Take the 4231 for example, I read this http://7500toholte.sbnation.com/2016/1/31/10878956/football-tactics-basics-the-4-2-3-1-formation-explained and I had a successful tactic created in minutes. There's a ton of other sites too but some go into too much detail for my liking which isn't really needed unless you're trying to replicate a specific style of play. I usually lurk these forums to see how other people implement certain things as well.
  2. Managing FC Bari at the moment because last time I had an Italy save was in FM09. Been quite a challenge getting promoted but managed to go through playoffs. Now this seasons going to be more difficult considering pretty much half my squad from last season have left because they were loans from before I took over.
  3. Gotta be honest, the box shirt tactic design looks like it belongs in the 90's, I'd much prefer vpaulus' Version C.
  4. So here is my current tactic that bagged me the premier league title in my first season and F.A Cup in the 2nd. Although this has been quite successful for me, my squad seems to have some sort of inferiority complex against the rival teams away from home. In my previous season it was these games alone that cost my side a second title. We usually have no problem coming up against these teams at Goodison, apart from Chelsea who somehow always draw at our ground and absolutely trounce us at the bridge. I have a record against Mourinho's Chelsea so abysmal it probably rivals Arsene Wenger's. 8 games played, 0 wins 3 Draws 5 Losses. So here is a match at Wembley vs Chelsea for the Community Shield, whilst I didn't consider this trophy important at all, the fact it was vs Chelsea made me desperate for the win but unfortunately we managed to lose yet again. The Line-ups: Match Stats: So my questions are: What should I change to be more defensively solid vs these types of teams whilst still having options in attack? If I was to watch the match in full highlights what should I look out for in order to give me a better chance of turning the game around? Is there anything specific I should look for? Thanks.
  5. The blue outlined box is for training that specific week. If you don't have anything selected it selects the yellow outlined box by default. Same with the red outlined boxes. The one at the top is selected at default as well.
  6. There is a definite lack of width in that tactic, I would try having them both on attack but also set to man mark the opposition wingers to ensure they don't get caught out high up the pitch in arsenal-esque fashion. I think it's worth setting mata to a support duty to link up with the central midfield more too. I'm not really a fan of the BWM as I find they often go walk about looking for the ball rather than actually defending. Try simply having a cm(d) there instead. As for the two up front I'm not really sure as I tend to just play 1 up front but Complete forward(s) and and advanced forward may work.
  7. I remember signing Suarez for Liverpool back in fm10. Before he turned into everyone's favourite pantomime villain.
  8. I assume this would be better than the one i posted? almost 100 quid more though, Just wondering if I should try and increase my budget to get this or stick with the one I posted earlier, cheers.

  9. After a year and a half of training zelalem is now finally natural as a cdm. Does this mean I can now take position training off and he'll always remain natural in that position?
  10. Hey guys, I'm due a new laptop as I've had this once since for just over four years. My budget is £800 and at the moment I've found one for £788. Now I know absolutely zilch about specs etc so I'll just post them here and hopefully you can tell me what you think? Cheers.

  11. I'm probably doing something blatantly stupid but...I don't know what. Been playing this guy in quite a few first team games and was progressing until this month when everything seems to have gone pair shaped. Same with this guy. So something has royally fudged up here but I have no idea how to fix it:o Any help appreciated!
  12. If there wasn't an issue there wouldn't be this thread. The OP is clearly an unhappy player because of this and I highly doubt anyone who's been sacked for this is jumping for joy. I'm not trying to stir things up, I'm sorry if I'm coming across that way but if we allow this to stay in the game how long before more ridiculous things start to come into the game? At the end of the day this is a brilliant game however games are played for fun, not for frustrating experiences. If someone was to come onto this forum and suggest this idea if it wasn't in the game already, I doubt it would gain much support.
  13. Even if it was legal, I'd highly doubt SI would even consider adding it, because if they did, there'd be no end to what they'd add. The point is though at the end of the day there has to be a balance between realism and an enjoyable experience. Getting sacked because of poor results can have an enjoyable journey leading up to it because of the challenge. Getting sacked for the most ridiculous thing is not enjoyable. Which leads to players not wanting to play.
  14. Well no because then there wouldn't be a realistic challenge, which again would have no benefit to the player.
