  1. I use the same tactic and having Guendouzi en Torreira in a BBM + BWM let to me winning the league 3-4 games before the end. Took in 19 goals Man C had 29) but scored only 75 (Liverpool had 96). My struggle was the strikers. I had goals coming from my midfield which was good but at times the strikers disappointed me. I think it's my tactic as I brought in Maximiliano Gomez who wasn't effective as well. Calleri who wasn't consistent. Same for Piatek. I have now opted for a young strikers force. Consisting out of Joveljic, Silva, Uriatre (regen) and Aldade (regen), while Almada, Felix serve as back up when I play 4-2-4. And I still have 2 more promising strikers in my U23. Most goals are still coming from my (attacking) midfield but the strikers are following closely. My striker plays as either AF or P depending on the players stats also have Joveljic who plays as CF. I also customise my tactics based on who I play. Cross early with P. work in box with AF. Wings are either IF or W both on support but can change to Attack depending on how things go. AMC is AP or T, again based on the player his stats. central midfielders are DLP/BBM and BWM. When Torreira gets yellow I shift him to DLP and move Guendouzi to BBM. Biggest los has been 4-3 against Cardiff with an average of being 1-3 in scoreline.
  2. I had to sell Nketiah as I have 2 amazing regens and another 2 coming. Plus I snapped up Fabio Silva for 20 million. Smith Row and Nelson have mainly played in the Champions League for me and doing well. Snatching decent numbers in goals and assists
  3. With each intake I search the other clubs and try to sign them or shitlist them to sign them in the summer. I try to pick up 17 yo or younger so they get that Homegrown club. Currently trying to figure a way to best beat the new work permit system I got through Brexit (limited to 16 foreign players, british passport helps me. So also shifting my focus to English born players.
  4. Keeping match sharpness up. My first season I didn't do anything and by the time I had my Europa League final sharpness was at at or below 90% for some.
  5. Wondering what some of you are doing in the regular post season (still have to play the EL/CL final)? I do the following but perhaps I could be done differently. Review contracts to expire in 1-2 years. Re-sign. Those going to be sold, place those on the transfer list after the final game of the season. Scout and sign youngsters I was unable during intakes. Set 2 friendly matches in the time between the last league match and EL/CL final Default training schedule for all 3 teams filled in
  6. Can't wait for my season to be over to see what kind of effect his departure will have. Mkhitaryan has been on Real's watchlist for over a season, haven't made the approach.
  7. The latest post about filters suggest there is a 'Media Descriptions' condition but I can't find it. There is only Media Handling Style
  8. Find it funny nobody is rushing to sign Ozil for free as his contract is running out with me. Had some issues with Lacazette and Aubameyang not scoring for long period or only from penalties. Look like that dip is over and they're slowly moving up. Still using the same formation 4-2-3-1 Chambers and Holding have been fairly well for me as rotation players. Even re-trained Holding to BWM-D.
  9. Haven't read about this one. Got a 16 foreign player limit with the work permit still present.
  10. No, actually not. The old one was set and forget until you got a message it was done. Now you have to check up regularly. Can group more at once
  11. I've been unable to get the best out of him at Arsenal after buying him for £20m. Playing him in 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3 and 4-4-2
  12. I failed to realise how important squad personality/determination is. Had a keeper I bought see his personality change from Model Professional/Citizen to Fairly Professional. Having somebody as Ozil as teamleader is influencing things more than I expected. Playing with Arsenal you really need to inject a good doze of determined players/personalities into the team.
  13. I think this affected my 24 year old GK (Traksosha) bought him with a Model Proffesional personality, now he's only got Fairly Professional. Want tot try.
  14. That's odd, I can't create them in my game for the U21 and U18 (Arsenal). EDIT: Ok, just checked my game, just started my second season (19.3.3) and now I do see the mentoring for U18 and U21. Could have sworn it wasn't there when I started my game (19.3)
  15. Getting staff with knowledge of that region is a quick way of raising it.
  16. I have 4 with 3 having people added for a year so I'm reminded of them. Default (mostly those moved from the U18s that are still worth it) U18s UK (England actually) Top Targets (no expire)
  17. Whoa! Impressive match, Harper. Did you release Ozil on free? ------------------------- Just started FM19 (always purchase after the Winter update). Have a huge learning curve ahead of me with the new features. Some struggles getting proper staff than the editions before. Arsenal's dwindled reputation hurting in many places. That said still got Bernhard Peters (Model Professional) as HoYD and Phil Cannon as Scout, who will later replace Bould as Ass Man. Also noticing more difficulty getting my demands through the board. This is going to be fun (in a positive way). Since Arsenal has a decent group I focused on youth in the back getting Tymon (14 mil), Vagnoman (9 mil), and Mbabu 11.5 mil) while Jenkinson was loaned out. De Ligt slipped through my fingers towards Liverpool. Also picked up Pelayo Morilla (950k) as I plan to not active the buy clause in Suarez (in with patch 19.3) his loan contract. Didn't have enough cash to go after a younger keeper (had a 30 mil kit). Will be a challenge if Cech and/or Leno get injured. Not focused on wing players since Smith Rowe and Nelson will return, so I have to be creative and rotate properly. Had some issues with Lichtsteiner and Xhaka in terms of playing time in October. Was forced to sell Lichtsteiner for 850k. Xhaka might follow as well. Focus for the first season will be to get back into the Champions League and win a cup (Europa and/or FA Cup). Pre-season was great, won all games while playing against the likes of Barcelona and Lazio. And In the league I've been able to keep my head above water moving around in the top 3. beat Liverpool, Man U and Chelsea comfortably. Lost to Leicester City.
  18. Would have been nice to see FM decide if Chelsea win the appeal or not. Adding a nice surprising challenge like Brexit did/does.
  19. I've used Dybalal in a 4-3-3 alongside Silva and Sanchez in FM17. They were scoring goals left and right.
  20. Edward is good. Alexandrino could become great with the proper tutor. His personality needs work (plus Det). Overall to solid midfielders.
  21. The striker is delicious. How are things going with homegrown regens?
