  1. Great point, the first few competitive games i had issues with the attack, not getting clear cut chances, mainly due to that i was playing with two strikers rather than the two am's now. The team is linking up better. But it looks like i have hopefully sorted the issues during the benfica game when i switched to the box. I will come back with an update tomorrow and if any, issues you guys can hopefully help me understand to solve it.
  2. On this years edition of FM i have chosen Sevilla, mainly due to the fantastic defence, creative and solid midfield and terrifyingly quick forwards. 3-4-3 was the tactic i would be implementing, not at first but after evaluating the squad i realised that the players fit into the system i was looking to build towards. The tactic says 343 direct however ignore the direct part, i was trying to play direct football as i thought the 3 at the back would be exposed if i played a possession game but that is not the case. Balance is key for me as i wan't to keep a hold of the ball but with
  3. Cheers for the quick response and clearing that up, top guy!
  4. Hi guys, I have simmed a year into the game just to check what thr regen faces will be like this year. After going to youth intake and looking at a fair few, none have faces. Just a dark outline. I am just wondering is this just the beta? And will they appear in the full game? I have transferred my logos and facepack from the previous game however that should not affect the regen faces? Any information at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  5. This thread is a real eye opener and shows how a mechanic in the game can't replicate real negotiations. I do appreciate the dev's putting more depth to the game however I always accept contracts without promises and will remove all promises before contact negotiations. Recently I have signed lucas romero who has a fav shirt number of 26, before starting a match I was prompted to register a shirt number but 26 was grayed out and could not give him it? I sat for a while and just accepted it and clicked auto and hoped but he didn't get 26. He is unhappy, lost trust in manager and handed in
  6. Regarding motivation westychimp, I spent over 1000 hours on fm15 because I enjoyed two saves I had going, both i didn't limit myself to one team. I started with the team I support celtic. I won the league 3 seasons I was there getting a treble In my last season. Also great results in Europe, Europa semi finals in first season, champions league round 16 the next and then I didn't qualify from my group in my last. I was bored of winning the league and the USA national team came in for me. When I first started the save it was a "make celtic a power in Europe again". However I found a lot of
  7. Thank you for the replies, I took into account what puffas said. I haven't played FM since I posted here on Wed. It's worked wonders - I got so engrossed in each match that I wasn't having fun because I was expecting more than what my team is capable of. Also that's why I play fm I can get completely lost in the teams I am assembling and if things don't go well - I suffer with the team (or the dots on the screen). Perspective is key, there's 99% losers in football, there is only one winner and my team isn't in that 1% yet. I am Villareal a small club trying to break the Madrid, Barcelona
  8. I am currently in my third season with villareal, the second season i finished 4th and qualified for the Champions League playoff and reached the europa league semis being put out by Ajax. I had a very tough road to the semis knocking out Napoli, Porto and chelsea to then by undone by Ajax. I took being put out on the chin as i had some serious bad luck with two starter fullbacks left and right getting serious injuries. Then my back up left back gets injured and i am having to play the last 5 games with a makeshift backline. I barely finished on 4th just beating sevilla. Now onto the 3rd seaso
  9. Before i forget i'm also starting to use prozone a lot now but still find myself scratching my head on what i'm actually looking for/interpreting the data, some sort of start to get me looking at it with purpose instead of glaring at a screen blankly would me much appreciated.
  10. Hi all, i am new to posting threads, although i am an avid reader of this section of the forum. I read peoples posts about how they are not quite getting the fundamentals of the game/tactics/player roles etc. But they are willing to learn and the community of new and veteran players try to help people get a better understanding of the game, so here i am... Recently i have started a save with Heerenveen and i have been struggling a lot, as of writing this i'm doing okay in the league after a shaky start - mainly down to poor strikers that are at the club, my defence has always been top 3
