  1. And people wonder why this part of the forum is especially quiet. Ozil is one of the, if not the best tactical contributor around on the forums and he's raised a legitimate issue (with evidence) which has allowed people to discuss these issues. If people think the 4-4-2 is unplayable, let them discuss that. If people want to discuss tactics to beat the system, let them do that. Don't go around locking threads because A: you disagree with their point of view or B: it doesn't suit the attitude of posters who think the ME is great.
  2. Look how nice the peace gardens look. Love Sheffield.
  3. The financial sections of the game

    As long as they are optional in some form, then yeah sure.
  4. Same manager for me. Normally in my saves I retire managers if they're obviously too old, but this challenge is different
  5. Can't you start playing in the league more often? For this challenge to progress (at this stage anyway) you need to be winning the title every year. Especially as the other sides aren't doing anything
  6. Love this type of thread and I've got the night off so I'm gonna go through and read it throughout
  7. New Laptop/PC - Help Needed

    Wanting a laptop really, budget is at tops £900. I'll be looking to do it on finance as well. Want something that allows me to play FM17, AOE without any issues, the full amount of leagues etc. Also, I like to use packs for trophies/club logos etc so what would the laptop need in order to run this smoothly? Otherwise, I use it for studying and browsing. I had this (http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/asus-k556uq-core-i7-7500-12gb-512gb-ssd-geforce-gtx-940m-dvd-rw-15.6-inch-w-k556uq-dm1024t/version.asp) recommended to me due to the SSD (which he said would be beneficial) but I'm open to other suggestions. Currently got a Toshiba Satellite, know it has a i7 processor but can't remember the full name. It allows me to have 80,000 ish players on FM and close to 30 leagues for 2 stars performance. PS. I know very little about specs and stuff!
  8. You literally have an answer for everything.
  9. The English Football League Thread - EFL in FM17

    Yeah, I'm sure it'll be fine
  10. Turning off unlockables.

    Yeah this is critical. After all, the forums are buzzing with activity these days.
  11. To get 8 from 12 though is a pretty good month, even if you are playing badly.
  12. Old School 442

    Why? I have a 4-4-2 that has a BWM/BBM combination.
  13. Great work l! Really enjoying this thread Adam!
  14. I'm not an expert, but the first thing that pops into my head (for T2) is that your team is so narrow. You've got the two CMs, two wingers and a forward moving in to central areas which is an issue considering that'll suit smaller clubs who will want to sit deeper and compact space. I think the shout ''work into box'' means your players will avoid crossing the ball into the box (not sure about that) which doesn't take advantage of your full backs who're providing the only width in your side. Also, you've got ''retain possession'' and ''play out from defence'' which imo will limit the creativity of your players (retain possession limits through balls). Add the fact that the tempo is low and you've got a side that will dominate possession 30 yards from the penalty spot, but offer hardly anything further forward. This will suit clubs who don't expect to get anything from playing you thus explaining why you are dominating yet not getting results.
  15. If you want some defensive stability as well, move the CMd to a DMd/DLPd with him holding his position. You'll still have numbers in midfield but it adds a line of defence.
