  1. Most people who play FM are in it to get out of their mundane lives and enjoy playing a game of football to relive their fantasies (example:liverpool winning the title). To understand so much about football and its intricacies would take the fun out of playing FM although there are some who derive pleasure from everything about football like half spaces to marking theories. So i can perfectly understand that plug and play tactics have their place in playing FM because it allows them to leisurely enjoy a game without stressing out over results when they already have a lot on their plate in the real world. For me i have been on both sides of the fence, from using plug and play tactics like modern warfare in earlier versions of FM to devising my own tactics using ways of making players mark certain opposition players to recreate the sort of movement i am looking for. And having been on both sides of the argument, i can say that there really is no right or wrong at all. It is a game after all. You could be using a tactically sound plan without any exploits and still suffer the occasional match engine screw up like getting three players sent off in ten minutes and your opponent scoring five free kick goals in the last ten minutes. It is a game so just enjoy it.
  2. Not sure if it is just me but i have been unable to get my carrilero to drift out wide and cross often like angel di maria did for real madrid under ancelotti. I tried players with the same foot as the flank they are closest to but still very few or none at all in terms of crosses. Even tried run wide with ball but to no avail. Is this something that is possible to achieve on FM19?
  3. Actually a lot of sides play like that with inside forwards as their main strikers and inverted wingbacks. Ronaldo is basically playing as a free roaming inside forward that never tracks back to defend. Same thing for mbappe on the right flank for psg. Out and out strikers in the modern game are getting very rare.
  4. Interesting piece @Rashidi. Your revelation about how the channels were more easily abused on FM18 were something that i stumbled upon but at that time did not think of it as a bug or an ME exploit. I was managing a chinese division one side called Feihu on FM18, and even in the lower division, a lot of the teams were vastly overpowered with lots of good foreign players like pato and yannick carrasco. I played a 4-1-5-0 formation with the left sided WM on attack set to mark the centre back closest to his side of the channel(DCR) with instructions to sit narrower, run wide with ball and cross less often. What it did was that it opened up the channel for my rampaging midfielders to score and also allows the WM to run onto balls fed into the opened up channel and score lots of goals. He ended up scoring 16 goals in 30 games. The only stats that were decent for him were his speed and acceleration. In fact the entire squad was really atrocious in terms of attributes and technical abilities compared to the other teams in the division. I tried doing that in FM19 and it was no longer as effective. Looking forward to reading more from your series @Rashidi👍
  5. Thank you so much @JordanMillward_1 for letting me know about it😊👍
  6. Wow thanks @JordanMillward_1for alerting me to this! So do i upload this to the database in the files?
  7. As above, the lowest german league playable on fm19 is down to the third division. Is there any way for me to play the german regional divisions in the game and play teams like alemmia aachen?
  8. The key to guardiola’s man city team is in getting the wingers to stretch the defence for the channels to open up for the two “8”s in david silva and bernardo to exploit with their runs and passing. The wingers also exploit the gaps between the fb and cb and either score goals from good passes from the two playmakers or to cutback across goal for a tap-in. The wingers only enter the box when a killing blow is imminent. From the vid by @kpsia518 sane stayed wide as much as possible until the last possible moment so that the channels remains stretched for the maximum possible exploitation by the playmakers. I would just go with ML/R and put them as roam and stay wider with wm(a). AML/R will always converge too early. Those are wide striker spots anyway.
  9. @sovy666 nice work👍 433-442 works well for Juventus. The squad is perhaps one of the most complete in terms of playing positions.
  10. @sovy666 looking forward to your results with the tactic. Matuidi looks good as a mezzala as he is often found in the box during attacks and out wide during transitions.
  11. To be honest, Juve’s current tactic for the past 4-5 games have centred around a very fluid front three in a 4-3-3. They defend as a 4-4-2 with dybala and cr7 upfront and the right winger either bernadeschi or cuadrado dropping to form a midfield 4. The three central midfielders are always pjanic, bentacur and matuidi. In defence they flatten out to form a four man midfield. Matuidi due to his industrious workrate, is able to cover the left flank and help out in the middle. Not really a left winger but defends the left flank due to cr7 being on the left and allowed to stay up for counters. So in a way it is a lot like real madrid’s 4-4-2 under Ancelotti, a 4-3-3 in attack and a 4-4-2 in defence. Dybala can be a false nine with cr7 being a complete forward on attack. But ronaldo especially for juventus has evolved to dropping deep often to the left flank to either link up play or escape from his markers. Very free-roaming so I am not sure if the current ME can emulate his frequent dropping deep to the left, often to the midfield line. I would line up like this. CF(a). F9 wm(s) dlp(d) BBM W(a) FB(a) DC DC. WB(s)
  12. Matiudi plays out like a carrilero. Supporting the central midfield with protecting the left flank. In a way their tactic is similar to Portugal’s 442 in which ronaldo plays like a pseudo wing forward but whose defensive duties on that flank are taken care of by the central midfielder on that side. Greizmann tends to drift to the flanks as he used to be a winger during his real sociedad days so it makes sense for someone defensively responsible like matiudi to cover for him like a carrilero.
  13. False winger- unlike a typical winger who stays wide, dribbles down the flank to send in crosses, the false winger stays wide to stretch the opposition’s defence before aggressively getting into the box to exploit gaps for goal-scoring opportunities especially when the ball is on the other flank. I see this role being in the ML/R spectrum, a sort of stealthbomber who drops deep to link up play but focuses on the end product rather than out wide crossing. I see Richarlison playing this role for Everton this season and Sterling doing it for man city on the right flank last season.
  14. Loving this as i am trying to replicate real madrid’s 4141 against bayern in last season’s champions league with ronaldo upfront alone in a counter sort of arrangement. Will play around with what you have here. Good tactic and nice results👍
