  1. You might be right, I'm not sure about my choice. My observation was that he contributed to the team pressing too much to be a Treq. He was also consistently moving into channels and looking to score, another trait the sounds more like an SS than an AP.
  2. I got inspired by their 5-1 win and would like to try and implement their style in FM. I've watched some parts of the match and read this tactical analysis: https://totalfootballanalysis.com/match-analysis/uefa-champions-league-qualifying-2021-22-psv-galatasaray-tactical-analysis-tactics And this is what I came up with. Not sure about some of the roles. Positive Play out of defence More direct Higher Tempo (pass into space?) (fairly narrow?) Counter Counter Press Higher D Line (much) Higher line of engagement
  3. I'd be interested in hearing your experience with this. I find that even within a winning system and a very well performing team, getting DMs (anchor men, for example) to achieve a high average rating is very difficult. For me this has also been the case with CMs who aren't expected to score or assist much - the match engine rarely seems to think they've had an exceptional game. Has this been the case for you as well? A couple of examples. Palhinha mostly played as an anchor man. Both of them have been a part of very succesful seasons.
  4. "Football Manager 2021 Was The Best-Selling Digital Game For Black Friday Week In The UK" https://www.thegamer.com/football-manager-2021-digital-best-seller/ "Football Manager 2021 is the fastest in the series to hit one million copies sold" https://www.pcgamesn.com/football-manager-2021/fm2021-sales I'm sorry you feel this way, but your approach to this thread has been very bad. You post a tactic, people give you very good and precise advice - next thing we see is you posting a new team and a new tactic, disregarding everything that has been said.
  5. I honestly don't think you've put much thought into fixing what has been suggested here - which is why you can't expect very different results in my opinion. Even if you like attacking with many players, think about where they end up on the pitch with the roles and duties they're given - then think what happens when you lose the ball, and who's supposed to cover for them. In all of the tactics here so far, there's not enough covering players (for my taste), and some of them aren't suited to the task either.
  6. I'm not sure why are you expecting very different results when your tactic is still about the same. It hasn't even changed much from the first pic in this thread.
  7. Two games is too little to judge, and you had a good result in one of them, but keep this in mind - both Rakitic and Oliver are very poor defensively. Check out their marking, tackling, positioning, bravery, aggression - they're all around 8-12. You let the wingers bomb forward and allow Rakitic to roam from position. So in most cases, you'll have one, maybe two players covering the central area when you lose the ball - and both of them aren't good at it. You also ask the team to press more - which will pull them even more out of position. I'm not saying it can't
  8. Great post, @Crazy_Ivan! Enjoyed reading it. Could you elaborate on why you chose to add "fairly narrow" and "focus play down the flanks"?
  9. Hey man. Don't let it get to you like that. If you're finding it too difficult - try starting from presets and assistant's recommendations. Also, I highly recommend you read the following guide, it could help a lot with some of the problems you face/create with your tactic: To give you an idea of what I'm talking about, this is what your second tactic looks like when your team has the ball - based on the roles you've assigned: That would be without the team instructions. On top of that, you're playing wide (so even bigger gaps between players), your
  10. Interesting question, would be curious to hear an answer as well. From what I gather: In terms of individual mentality, they will be the same. The attack duty will have "cross more often" and "get further forward" hard coded, but you can add those to the support duty as well. In terms of influence on other players - the winger on the same side will have a reduced individual mentality if you use the overlap instruction.
  11. Would be interested to hear more about when would you opt for a split press in a 4-3-3 and when would you rather have the high DL/DOE/more urgent combination instead.
  12. I'm not sure how accurate this is, but here's a simple way that I started thinking about it. Mentality will dictate how many players your team strives to keep behind/in front of the ball at all times. Defensive = Keep most players behind the ball at all times, both in defence and in attack Attacking = Make make more runs behind the ball This idea also fits the idea that aggressive counter attacking systems work better on balanced/positive mentality.
  13. After hundreds of hours, I've had a total of two VAR checks that awarded a goal. Wish it was more random.
  14. Thanks! I understand it has plenty to do with the formation and build up, but in general - low LOE will typically see the team winning the ball further away from goal - requiring the strikers to cover larger distances, with and without the ball. Is that line of thinking correct?
