  1. To be honest I've lost the desire to play FM at the moment. I can't watch the ridiculous angles that players shoot at anymore, or the situations players find themselves in and come to the conclusion that shooting is the best option.
  2. Did you make any changes to the shouts and mentality?
  3. I've gone through both quarter and semi final 4-4 winning on away goals.
  4. I have seen said interview and have 2 systems based on that. F9 AF IF/a BWM/d Mez/a Rg WB/s CB BPD WB/s SK and when out wide, CF/a IF/s IF/a AP/s CM/s Anc FB/a CB BPD WB/s SK
  5. I have had him train his physicals for the first season, which I normally do for young players. However this season I have tried a mixture of tackling and heading. My thinking is that both categories would encourage him to compete for the ball. However, even with increased game time it has brought no gain. I'm starting to think he's just a typical laid back Dutch fella.
  6. As the title suggests really. I signed Kik Pierie a season and a half ago and his aggression hasn't moved from a very modest 7. I have tutored him with my most aggressive players who have 15-18 for the said attribute but he hasn't responded. Is there a way to improve this attribute?
  7. Also, I just cannot get him high and narrow enough when I start him out wide. I think his role varies during a game from an AF to CF/s and sometimes a winger.
  8. I was thinking of dropping him to the AMRC as a SS and trailing it. My problem, is that I am entering April and a really important run of games.
  9. I push up high and close down hard so I try and stop the play before it gets down the flank.
  10. Did they give VVD a boost in his mentals? The low stats for decisions and concentration always put me off starting again with the update and it's a double whammy with losing Coutinho.
  11. Firmino does play like a Tq as, for me, he is the primary playmaker. Granted the role doesn't close down like he does IRL but with a fluid shape and his high work rate and teamwork he does close down in game it's just not to the level that I want. A F9 role doesn't do him justice either as he doesn't run with the ball that much IRL. The CF/a role has brought me the most goals and assists but the Tq role seems to fit his overall play better. IMO.
  12. Many moons ago I used a tactic with this backline: Wb/a CB/c CB/d FB/s I used the covering CB to give me more cover to the rampaging LB. I used a flat 3 midfield so I did t have cover from the DM strata. The opposition would ping balls down my right side as the LB would be up field. The CB/c sat a little deeper than his partner CB which gave him more time to react to the ball over the top. I always made sure he had good pace because he would be covering more ground, naturally.
  13. I am trailing a strickerless tactic at the moment with two different front lines. Option A: Mane Firmino Salah Am/a Tq SS Option B: Mane Firmino Salah Tq Eng SS
  14. I'm seriously thinking of playing Salah upfront to replicate his true roles of late. How could you possibly get him that high and narrow. The Raumdeuter role just doesn't cut it.
