  1. Thank you for all the comments and advice. I have somewhat changed the tactic based on advice so i will post an update tonight/tomorrow morning. Depending on how it goes i my do a thread devoted to building my club around this tactic.. need to come up with a snazzy name now!
  2. Essentially I have been ruminating on this 'tactical idea' for the past few iterations of FM; it now seems like this could be the best version to try to implement my idea given the tactical/training overhaul that has occurred in this years version.... so here goes. What goes on in my head This is essentially the shape I have quasi-decided on: What I would like is for the F9 to drop deep and essentially create opportunities for the RMD and the (L)CM- whose Individual instructions are to essentially get further forward, roam, dribble more, etc. (essentially a BBM or CM(A)). The RMD I want them to find space to run in to and exploit it. I want the Full backs to stretch the field of play and offer an option to keep the play as far up the field as possible, they have been asked to cross from the byline and cross to the near posts on their side, hopefully keeping the crosses low as per the team instruction to do so. The CM(R) is, for all intents and purposes a DLP- direct passes, hold position, take more risks. In my previous versions of this tactic the HB has been an Anchor man, however, I thought I would experiment with a HB here as I like the idea of creating a back 5 when we loose possession but also have him be there as an option further back to the CM(R) to recycle possesion (I think this is what will happen). My previous version looked something like this: I think if we compare the two, the latter version is slightly more balanced. I will utilise both versions during my Liverpool save and see which, if any, are better. Any feedback, criticism, help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  3. I would like to see more recogniation of thw consequences too. For example, instead of just terminating the contract as it currently is in game. I would like to see a dialouge about it instead. The options could be: Wage is too high Culling of the squad Contract runs out at the end of the year and we will not be renewing it/and no plans to be in the team during the laat year Gross misconduct (example above)
  4. Hey all! I was hoping that I could get some feedback about my tactic. I am looking for any ares you all see where I could be exposed. I have done very well with this tactic given the team I am and their expectations, Stoke City. This is the tactic as I have it now. And this is my squad: and my results: I suppose I also have the choice of, if it aint broke, dont fix it and see how I end up doing this coming season with some investment in the squad. Although, I am also tempted to just keep that the same.
  5. I think a DLF would pair quite well with a poacher. Either that of a F9?
  6. I think so. David Silva in one of my saves moaned about missing Spain and not being able to adjust.
  7. For some unknown reason I am pretty stuck with the 4-1-2-3 formation.
  8. http://www.qvc.com/ASUS-ROG-Strix-17.3-Laptop-i7-16GB-1TB-256-SSD.product.E290535.html?upsh=1&sc=E290536-CSWB Any idea how this will perform with the 17 and 18? How many leagues do you think I would be able to get out of it and how well will it perform with 3d matches? Thanks
  9. I think think would fall into the realistic category. Linesman/women do makes mistakes, even obvious ones.
  10. This might not be the best place to ask, and I am sorry if this is too off topic but: If I purchase my laptop here in the US would I be able to use it in the UK over a long period of time? I know the electricity voltage or something is different to the US, but aside from that is there anything else I would need to be cognizant of? Also, thinking of getting either this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06WVMJ713?psc=1 or this as the missus loves her photo stuff and she could do some nice stuff on this I think: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016C8779U/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A20V3TQQO5K574&psc=1 Cheers!
