  1. @JEinchy second goal was beautiful! Mind posting your TIs?
  2. Guido has done a pretty good interpretation with his strikerless version! https://strikerless.com/2020/03/30/fight-club-football-a-bordalas-inspired-tactic/
  3. Hi Guys, I've tried to search for the answer, and not sure if this is the right place to post this. But I've finished the first season with Ajax with the new winter database, and have lost De Jong to Barca, but realised that Ajax don't actually receive any of the transfer fee, despite the game recognising the record fee etc. This kinda makes playing as Ajax a bit of a let down. Is it supposed to happen this way? Is the only way to get this cash with an in game editor?
  4. The amount of crosses (blocked or otherwise) is absurd! Been trying to emulate Pep's city, with dribble less, cross less often where ever i can. even accounting for the 21 corners, that's still 100 crosses!!! See stats below. 29 shots, 11 on target for the 1 goal from a set piece too. Can't say I've enjoyed this version of FM very much unfortunately.
  5. I have found the same issue. Made regen day a total nightmare.
  6. yep i've had that happen too. Playing with Arsenal, 1st season won the league, fa cup, champs league. Now on a 60-something game unbeaten run in January 2013, top of the table, and my fans arent happy LOL. what gives!??
  7. i play with 2 central midfielders and a DM. LCM is my Advanced Playmaker on Attack which Wilshere/Carzola normally plays. RCM is my DLP Support and i rotate Arteta/Ramsey. I have retrained wilshere and carzola to be proficient in the CM position. AML/AMR are Inside Forward Attack and Support - Signed Greismann for the left, Ox on the right. WBs are both attack.
  8. I am playing this style formation with my second season Arsenal squad after reading wwfan's Barcelona tactic thread which is pretty much what this thread is about. Currently on a 40something game unbeaten record run! was playing my rubbish tactic till half way through the first season where i got knocked out of the league cup. Changed over to my current tactic and havent lost since!
  9. Yep 13.1.3. Balanced/Counter Zonal Marking Press More Default Tackling/Creative Freedom Roam More Drill crosses. GK = Sweeper Keeper (Szczesny) WB's on attack (Alaba/Jenkinson) CD's are Stopper and Cover (Zouma/Hummels) DM = DM on defend (M'Vila/Frimmpong/Coquelin) DLP = support (in line with the cover CD) (Arteta/Ramsey) ADP = attack (Wilshire/Carzola) IFL = attack (Griesmann/Wilshire/Carzola) IFR = support (Oxlade/Wilshire/Carzola/Ramirez) CF = Treqartista (Falcao/Ademilson) With how i have it set up, my left flank is the more attacking side (IFA and AdvPM is on left). I get heaps of crosses into the centre, where my forward will attack from deep and my "right" flank players are also deep and attack from. My IFR has scored heaps of goals from the edge of the box where the ball is often flicked on to him from Falcao from a left cross. Falcao = beast. No other tweaks, but i use a few shouts depending on opposition and how the team is playing. i always have keep possession and hassle opponents on before kickoff. Against a strong team, i use play out of defense/work ball in box. Against weak teams i use push higher up. Im currently on a 45 game unbeaten record going into the second season. I just beat chelsea 6-0. Best result so far in second season.
  10. Big thumbs up for the dedication to try something like this!! Personally i dont mind the way the academy leagues are set up, so will probs keep playing my 3.1b save. But i also, got Far Cry 3 last night, so FM might be on the backburner for a little bit
  11. try a defensive/counter strategy instead of the attacking one in the tactics. both these so-called defensive set-ups are quite efficient at attacking from deep with build up play and short passing.
  12. with my current arsenal squad i'm averaging 68% and my bar is about 2/3 full. try using short passing and the keep possession shout
  13. possession football is probably averaging possession rate of over 50%?? or at least have possession for the majority of the match. you'll need short passing for this.
  14. Erimus, Do you know if you can tweak the academy reputations from FMRTE? I just finished a season with 3.1b, and don't really want to start another new save HAHAHAHAHA.
