  1. Dubravka at Newcastle only has 1 in work rate, is this correct?
  2. The 4231 one, are there any PI's for the different roles?
  3. Reading the comments here really disappoints me. The game has so much potential, shame it's being let down by the most important part. Also @Amarante I remember you being one of the main driving forces on here trying to get things changed, and now you've become apologetic to process?
  4. Then stop playing it, you don't have to, you can say no to the assman. I stopped playing them a long time ago when I noticed it was the source of pointless injuries. They don't add anything. If I want to take a look at the reserves/youth I'll schedule it in later down the line, or just watch one of their friendlies.
  5. I'm glad your experience has been the same as mine, means I'm not being completely useless. I have put the game on hold now for a while, waiting for an update.
  6. If I was scoring the long shots I probably wouldn't mind, but this is the second game in a row where I've lost by quite a number of long goals, this game he scored a hattrick of them. 8 long shots, 6 finishing Makes having a deeper line really pointless if that guy can bang in 3 in 1 game.

  7. Thank you. Worth noting that changing Couvry to 10 for flair and determination didn't change the RCA or his CA.
  8. Hibs had a very good one on FM17 which I believe was: GK-D WB-D -- CB-D -- CB-D -- WB-D B2B-S -- BWM-D -- B2B-S AMC-S -- EG-A AF-A Those f**kers had me going mad. quick edit: Found it:
  9. Have you had a chance to have a look?
  10. With FM19 I intended to try some new styles of play and do some things I've not done before. I have found the ME difficult to work with in the final 3rd with some of the much reported issues there. So I'm back to this, and made a few tweaks to the system. First thing I done was to boot up FIFA19 go to head to head seasons and pick Atletico. I don't like to replicate Simeone, but they have the best squad for my style of play on FIFA. Noticed a fair few changes compared to how I setup in FM18 as posts above. How I have now setup: Preference on building from the back, and attacking mentality to get the ball forward and quickly. Regroup to get players back in position and make hard to break down, with the deeper defensive line as well, then counter to encourage the quick attacks. Low crosses is a personal choice. GK(D): Don't really ask much from him, shot stopper is more than fine, reasonable distribution skills for playing out from back. FB(S): Change this year as WB(S) now has PI's and FB(S) does not. Means PPM's very important, want to avoid things like "get forward when ever possible" and "runs with ball down wing" etc. Want them to support play, but rarely if ever go past the wide players in front of them, the left side allowed a little more freedom, but no specific settings. CD(D): No need for extravagance here. WM(A): Stay wider, Dribble more - Went this this over a winger, I don't want to encourage crossing, but don't want to discourage it. Other than direct passing, he's the main outlet for getting the ball forward. CM(D): Went with a DLP last time round, found I don't really use one. Literally just need someone to be there and do the basics. BWM(S): Get further forward - Want him all over the place really, doesn't need to be overly creative, more brute force than anything. WM(S): Sit narrower - Two attacking WM's worked fairly well last year, noticed I generally attack more from one side on FIFA, so a technical player on the opposite side is preferred. More like a CM/WM really. PF(S): Wanted a role that holds up play that doesn't move into channels or a target man. PF(A): Was going with AF but this adds a bit more emphasis on closing down at the front without increasing pressing intensity. The DLF(A) not working as did last year. I'm still a little unsure on which side for the CM's and the ST's at the moment, so will be watching closely. May switch them around.
  11. Are you able to confirm Fode Guirassy and Clement Couvry having 1 determination is correct? Also Couvry has 1 flair. Both for Lavallois as well.
  12. I played a half with the option off and it saw my defenders playing long balls over the top a lot more than with it on. I’m now very conflicted because I want to build from the back, but want distribution to full backs. I could set each defender to short passing, but I kind of thought that’s what “play out of defense” done. Which seems to be the case in game, but SI saying it’s not the case. I’m confused.
