  1. What do you mean by "maximize options" and " have a match that doesn't really slow down"? Can you clarify these a bit? The English Premier League is the top ranked league in the world, if that's what you're looking for.
  2. Dave, was just thinking, why don't you have the counter attacking option ticked in your tactics?
  3. 1. The latest tactic is the last one in the OP. 2. The wizard final unbeaten is the second to last in the OP. 3. The difference is that one tactic is made in a classic way and the other is made using the tactics wizard/creator. Plus there are some differences in team instructions mainly, like different width, tempo, defensive line. It's entirely up to you regarding the use of OIs. Some people use them and others don't. You can try using them and see if they work for you.
  4. There could be many reasons for this. One is that your players have low anticipation stats. If it's the strikers, then they're making their forward runs too early. If it's the midfielders, then they're possibly making through passes to the strikers too late. Or it could be a combination of both. Plus the opposing team is probably using the offside trap. Are you still getting good results though? It will happen in some matches more than others.
  5. Good choice with getting Dzeko. Since Drogba is getting old, you can try getting Romelu Lukaku as a player who can replace him in the future. That is if you want to continue to play with those types of strikers.
  6. You seem to be new not only to Football Manager, but to football in general Am I right? Since you are Chelsea, then you already have many excellent players for this tactic, or for any tactic for that matter. You can just strengthen a few areas if you wish with the 68 million you were given. I think with Chelsea it would be good to get at least one more striker. You have one of the strongest squads in the game already, no need to sell all your players. If you do want to sell, then I'd suggest you get rid of the players that simply don't fit into the tactic, like wingers for example. However,
  7. After you've created a "filter" folder, you have to put the filters you've downloaded into it. Then in the game you can import them. Yes you need to try to get players that the filters find, otherwise, the tactic wont perform very well.
  8. Yes, in that case you can try playing more direct because your assistant is saying that your players are completing few short passes while having success with long passes. However, I personally don't pay much attention to the assistant's feedback. First, because possession is not a priority for me. Having advantage in possession does not equate to winning a match. I always go by what I see on the pitch, not what my assistant tells me. Second, his advice is rather trivial and misleading. He could be saying that you're not completing many short passes because a couple players have been struggli
  9. I find it strange that you're having difficulty against a wide diamond formation with a 4-1-2-3, because if anything, you should actually have the advantage in this case. You are packing the midfield and playing through the middle, where the opposition has only two players (AMC and DMC), plus there's a gap between them in which your two MCs usually sit. Here's just one example of me playing against a wide diamond: I also used some OIs, like tight marking the AMC and both STs, plus showing all players onto their weaker foot. Usually I don't use OIs at all, but when I play big teams, I tend
  10. 1. It doesn't matter what reputation your coaches have. What matters is the club's reputation, the league reputation, and your own reputation as a manager. 2. local < regional < national < continental is the correct one. 3. Coaches need to have determination, level of discipline, and motivating, aside from their coaching attributes. Have no idea. I don't use programs like Genie Scout.
  11. It's doubtful that these schedules alone are at fault. Your team may simply be going through one of those seasons when injuries are more abundant, it happens. Or you might have players that are more injury prone. There are so many people who have used these schedules with little problems, including myself. I've also had seasons when I had to use a lot of rotation because my team simply couldn't stay healthy for whatever reason. However, I've also had even more seasons when my players were quite healthy for the most part. Injuries come and go. People jump to conclusions too quickly around h
  12. Let your squad gel, especially since you brought in all those new players. Settle on a starting eleven and play it unchanged as much as possible.
  13. Mr. Hough, you gotta clear your PM box again man Can't send you any communiques.
