  1. Could I ask what type of player you play on the right of centre midfield? I've just taken over Dortmund in the 2nd season after they barely make Europa League. I've sold Gundogan who was my first choice for that position for massive money so I'm looking for a replacement. I'm guessing a Box to Box Midfielders + Key stats from your initial post with positioning not as important but still fairly high?
  2. Quick question that may be completely superfluous. When asking a coach to teach a PPM does it matter which coach is chosen? For example will a more attacking coach teach the shooting PPM's quicker or make it more likely to succeed or does it not matter in the slightest? I only ask because it gives you the option to choose which coach to ask rather than just give you a drop down of the available PPM's straight away.
  3. So I decided to give this a go with Barcelona after an aborted attempt with their B team (I vastly overestimated how much control you would get) just to see what this tactic could do with exactly the right players (other than a few too many 'runs with ball often' PPMs). The only change I made to the original tactic was to stop closing down with CB's as suggested and to play Messi as a F9. I figured as he had the 'runs with balls' PPM I might as well take advantage. Everyone else played on DLF. When playing a 4-2-3-1 I would change the half-back to a defensive mid as shown against Chelsea. Al
  4. So is playing a higher tempo going to cancel out 'retain possession' or will the shout just lower the tempo from very high to high or high to medium for example?
  5. Thanks a lot. Edit: Doesn't seem to be the case. Moved all my players to the Senior Squad and in the Individual section of the Senior Squad training are players with youth contracts and in the Individual section of the U18 Squad training there are only greyed out players.
  6. A follow up question - no non-EU players under 18 can be picked for the squad in every competition in the Netherlands. Should I just not bother buying any players from outside of the EU until they are 18 if they can't get any playing time?
  7. If you put all your players in the Senior Squad then just mark players as available for U21 or U18 teams surely all players are being trained by senior staff? Does this mean that the youth training facilities arn't used as well as the U18 staff (other than manager/assistant manager)?
  8. That's working well then. You'll get that extra 10% if you do the team talks yourself, or else what's the point of doing it yourself?
  9. So I want to try and learn to do tactics on this game properly. I have a team with very limited funds so I'm stuck with what I have. It's technically gifted in midfield and attack, but has poor pace. The defence is above average except for, again, poor pace. Other than pace the only area lacking is heading, though this is only slightly below average rather than bad. So I was wondering how to start basically. I've often just used plug & play tactics so I'm pretty clueless here. Obviously I'm going to have to play deep due to my defenders lack of pace. However, won't my lack of pace affect
  10. Bit belated as I'm a lurker around these forums, but I must congratulate you on the excellent job, especially at my beloved Birmingham. Shame you couldn't bag us a trophy but some great work. Wouldn't mind you taking over in real life if you're up for it? It was also fantastic to see big Craig Gardner and Darren Purse at the club, love those two. Pursey scored against you (Liverpool) in the Worthington Cup Final years ago so he is pretty much a legend. Did you bring him with you too Italy? Looks like you're off to a flier in Italy, hope you do well with Napoli. Finally as a last note, can
