  1. Thats my evening sorted! Cheers.
  2. Which league update did you use for this save? Been after an italian lower league datebase that actually works!
  3. I will give it a go. I used wingers on support instead of wingbacks, so a flat midfield 5. tried to recreate Cruyff's Barca shape! I did retrain full backs to be wingers as those players had to be good defensively otherwise i got battered!
  4. have you made a version of this for fm2018? i made one like this with wingers for 2017 and i loved the way it played but would love to see an updated version of this one!
  5. Pep's Barcelona (Very Fluid)

    @Ö-zil to the Arsenal! i am trying out something similar and re training ppms on the DLP and AP roles. What ppms would you recommend for any other roles in the system? wingbacks get forward more and hug line i would think, IF's move into channels and cut inside at a guess. If you could advise any more i would be grateful! Cheers
  6. Grassroots Tactics: Simplicity.

    It helps to understand how shape influences roles and duties and dispells a few myths around it. Great work on the thread by the way @Ö-zil to the Arsenal!
  7. Grassroots Tactics: Simplicity.

    @Ö-zil to the Arsenal! where did you get the spreadsheet from? its got me intrigued!! The numbers on your formation tell me that your CMA and Poacher are 15 and 17 and are on the left side of your formation, and the other midfielders and WBS are 10s and 11s. I assume this is to encourage link up play between the CMA and Poacher?
  8. Johan Cruyff's 3-4-3 Diamond (Very Fluid)

    I have used it with an LLM side and once i got the right players for it, i had some great results. I used the wingers on support rather than attack and we were pretty solid. Did struggle against a 4-2-3-1 though, so had to change to wingbacks for that.
  9. thanks for the tips very helpful. I have the players to do a 3 up top and with AP's so will give it a go. If it is a 3 I would probably go with 2 DLF's flanking an AF but will have to see how that goes.
  10. I am thinking of trying this with Salford City who I just got promoted to the Vanarama National League. Been wanting to do a 3-4-3 for ages but never got it right. I have the players for these roles so its worth a go!
  11. Yeah it was, think it is bugged as cant seem to sign german national players either. The 2nd team was in a non active league as i only had regionliga upwards loaded up. In previous versions i havent had this issue so must be a bug as well.
  12. I loaded up a game file to the FTP showing similar issues. The players in the 2nd teams only had sub appearances and not many of them at that!
  13. MIght be an idea to play a 4-3-3 with wingers or IF's which will occupy their CD's. They might then put their WB's further back. Little other things might work like GK distribute to FBs to try and draw out some of their midfielders so you can control the middle of the park. I play 3 and the back a lot and I always have problems against a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 so might be worth a shot.
  14. Germany to Level 7 v1.0

    Is the current version ok to download or is it best to wait until the latest version?
  15. Germany to Level 7 v1.0

    I have also reported that when I send players to the 2nd team they don't rack up appearances apart from the odd substitute one which again is weird as other teams in other inactive leagues still register player appearances. The 2nd team staff situation is strange too as I occasionally get an alert that the 2nd team need a head of sports science or physio and I have no vacancies on the board screen. Hope these are sorted soon!
