  1. There are various things to try. See the match and observer how the fullback is getting the ball. 1. Is it via a wide midfielder (try instruction defend wide) 2. Is it via a central playmaker (try to compress the space for playmaker so he doesnt get much time on ball) - This can be done by changing roles and duties of ur attack/midfiled or lowering line of engagement so that he gets sanwitched) 3. There is no golden rule, try seeing the match and observe what is working. Dont change ur tactic it looks pretty good on paper. Try adjusting team/player instructions for matches by obsering whats working in that match and what is not.
  2. Here are my rules If you have pressured team too much during build up(press, pep talk) and team is winning at half time by at least 2 goals - praising them makes them more confident and they enjoy game in second half and end up scoring more If you have conceded 0 "shots on target" before half time - dont praise them instead use dont become complacent. It helps their concentration levels If morale is low - praise them if morale is high - use your stick
  3. I have seen a sharp decrease in laser guided through balls if you dont use the offside trap while defending. I have had a lot of sucess with defend deep n hit at counter AF(A) IF(S) AP(S) T(A) CM(D) B2B(S) FB(A) CD(D) BPD(D) FB(S) GD(D) Use TI plays out of defence. counter, counter press, normal def line, normal loe, more press, if you are playing lower mentality you might need to add higher tempo, pass into space
  4. hold dribble shoot beat defensive line win aerial battle can play risky pass
  5. remove the team instructions shorter passing and play out of defense to improve touches to goal ratio. your possession will drop but you will be able to hit the opposition before they get back to defensive positions. due to using these instructions your attackers doesnt get space to operate After removing these you may find some problem with higher tempo instructions if quality of your players is not good enough. if you are creating chances but opposition is creating more due to counter by lost possession, get rid of higher tempo
  6. Thanks mate. Took your advice. Changed Mezzala(A) to B2B(s) and WB(S) to FB(S). got my first clean sheet in an away game next game by 4-0 win over Middlesbrough. They were struggling when they came into the match and we took advantage of their fragile mentality with 2 corner goals and 2 goals from counter.
  7. I am playing Bolton. 1st season. no transfers. Here is the screenshot of my tactic. I have also uploaded a goal I conceded in last match when QPR went all in with their fullbacks. I was using two attack duties at front at that time teraquista on AMR and TM(A) on striker. AML was changed to IF{S} and added instruction to pass into space. rest of the tactic is same as in the screenshot Bolton vs QPR_85 minutes.ogv
  8. Hey This is the best guide so far I have found you on the forum for FM 19. Have really helped me when playing a side destined for relegation fight. I rate you highly as often I see pretty good advice given that is pin point and tells how to translate in the game at the same time. One little help regarding my 4123 formation. I am playing relegation battle team with standard DL and standard LOE with tight marking instruction and set front 5 players to close down more. What do you do when opposition brings both their fullbacks to attack. I tend to make a sub to get a faster centre back then go high DL and high LOE to try to win ball early.
  9. I would like to see audio commentary added to matches. It will make the experience of watching a football match on FM much better.
  10. No I am in charge of all team and individual trainings. Its just that crossing is not there in individual training menu. Maybe because of holiday ? will check if it doesnt fix then its a bug
  11. i cannot train my inside forward crossing ? in training individual i cannot set it. help please I am playing as ManU and want to set crossing training focus for Martial
  12. Hey FrazT Thanks for raising a genuine issue. Most of the community moderators blindly back the game implementation instead of raising and accepting the existing issues. I love this game and hope to see continuous improvements.
  13. Hello Cleon The things I would like to see from tactical point of view 1. Developing a move against different formations and mentailties. 2. Controlling the game once you get the lead. 3. Set piece arrrangements From training point of view 1. general training effects on various settings and durations in long term. 2. Developing a youngster with high potential (I still struggle in it despite tutoring and starting games week in and out)
  14. I just beat Everton 5-0 p0l0aying as Man Utd. Lemar scored a direct freekick so if you ignore that its basically 4-0 open field gols. I played 4231 wide. Can share more tactical details if you want them. Currently I am on winning streak of like 15 including friendlies. All easy matches though. I also used to struggle a lot against this formation despite myself playing 4231. But then I use one of my wide attacking midfielders as playmaker to better control the game and hit them through the middle. It has been easy for me beating a 4231 since then. Because as soon as my wide playmaker receives ball he is closed down and there is tons of space in the middle to exploit. here are the highlights https://youtu.be/L3sFz9VBbNc
  15. I have been playing FM mostly in England. So as a general rule for youth development, I have been following following strategy 1. Players upto age 17 are in Under 18 team 2. Players with age 18 and fairly useful ability go to under 23 team. players with useful ability and good potential to senior team so that i can use them in cup matches 3. If I cannot give game time to a 19 year old i loan him. But in spain I am managing Sevilla, they have Sevilla, Sevilla B, Sevilla C, Sevilla u19 now there is no controlled transition from u19 to senior team. If I move a player to B or C then I dont know what general training they are using as I dont use Balanced general training. but keepingh a player in under19 also feels like hindering his development as he needs to play with better players to develop further How do you people manage youth development in Spain
  16. I have widely used two. AP(S) will usually be in the middle of field like a CM(left) and will make passes from there. AP(A) will also start from middle but will run with ball into defenders before making a pass. make sure your have free outlets apart from a runner for this to work. IF(S) will find him behind the opp full back and will look to run and cross, shoot pass whatever he likes. Unlike AP. inside forward will struggle when playing against two banks for 4 because he will hardly be able to recieve the ball. but then with AP you will loose a goalscoring threat
  17. Yeah I once joined City and sold everyone in first team and reserve....shifted all payroll to money.....and then spent all money to buy a sunday league player....:)....I resigned after that.... In real life board would never allow outgoing transfer in first place or approve incoming transfer......I can only wish
  18. Inside forward - they think off the ball training is not useful Wing back(DL) - they think crossing is not useful
  19. your dm is on defend duty too....DLP(S) would be better I think against defensive system. you need him to come a bit forward. he will hold his position so dont worry about the fact that he wont be able to cut striker passes
  20. Personally against this setup. I would make one wing role to AP(S)...because lets face it you are not going to receive ball one the wings neither you can penetrate them through middle via some smart dribble or movement. AP(S) will drop a little comes a bit narrow to receive the ball. with IF(S) role you will not be able to give him the ball enough now it would be good idea to have other wing on IF(A) duty so that your AP has some option to play the ball forward. AP(S) also needs another outlet to make a pass so bring the full back on that side to attack duty as well as the CM on AP side to attack duty. your striker can be set to attack duty or support after seeing the match and deciding if ur team is having enough possesion. I would thing support will do better. not a holding one. but a dribbling one. because with four men surrounding ur striker forget that he will be holding the ball successfully and pass to your teammate. his best chance would be if he gets the ball. make a dribble n shoot. rest of ur duties can be support.
  21. I think it would be great for a lot of gamers to have a mode in which they 1. pick a team 2. create a tactic 3. Choose Opp. Team [optionally manager, formation, home, away] 4. Play This can be like single game mode just to experiment new tactics against different opposition. In this mode there should not be any penalty for tactical familiarity
  22. I also struggled a lot early on then now I have beaten them in last 4 matches. Idea is to do not let them go all out attack. They have too much quality to find a scrappy goal. I play as MU 4231 have beaten other teams in league but Arsenal always seemed impossible. With little changes in role, I made my tactics such that I am very well at defending and devastating at counter. I go with standard mentality.
  23. learnt from my mistakes....and went for my very old role combinations. Idea is attack for attack with enough people to defend... won FA and Champions cup in 2nd. Feels Good
