  1. I've started 15 new games and each time he's listed. Would make more sense to set it as Burke considering we tried to offload him in the summer and expect him to leave in Jan. We aren't really overloaded with strikers we have 4 really and one who hasn't played 90 minutes in 3 years (Moose and his contract is up end of the season. And we play with 2 up top mainly so 5 strikers isn't that many. Especially when one of them is used as a midfielder too.
  2. Sheffield United's Oli McBurnie is transfer listed at the start of every new save. In real life he isn't transfer listed.
  3. A dropbox/drive link isn't possible atm. I have far too much stuff on there already and it's not really organised and there's some stuff I'd not be allowed to share from previous FM's. So that can' happen atm.
  4. Thanks all. I've not forgotten this but I've been working on it slowly in the background and done a lot so far. I'll likely post snippets once FM22 is out and I can update the screenshots for stuff I've written so far and the examples.
  5. @Hovis Dexter Updated how? They all still apply now, nothing changed except maybe how the game actually looks.
  6. It's a really good thread. However I'm not sure the kind of feedback you are wanting from me, I don't really have much to comment. You seem to focus on stuff way differently to me, like reputation for example. You speak about this a fair bit and while what you say is true, I personally don't think it's as profound as you think. Also not sure what you mean about relationship between roles/duties and mentality? Personally, I'd rather focus on how the roles all come together to create the style of play I am wanting to create, regardless of mentality. Know what the roles do and what settings they actually have. The game tells you this. I don't think it needs to me more complex other than maybe adding support players will stay/start deeper than when on an attacking duty. But that doesn't mean they don't attack. Also with regards to your thread I'd like to see some actual details of the opposition and what happens in a game. You've kind of touched upon it briefly but no real details or examples of the struggles in the tougher games in Europe. I like the way the thread is going though and you're doing the right kind of stuff. My only bit of feedback would be to make sure you know what a role actually offers your side. For example a quick look at the tactic you posted in the first post, I see only 1 player immediately attacking the box. The Vol's have a large distance to make up and support from midfield and your striker initially drops/starts deeper. I think in the tougher games your play is quite predictable I would hazard a guess. The central midfielders do the same thing just one from deeper areas than the others. There's not much variety imo and the whole tactic relies on the Treq and SS playing well. For what its worth I think the VOL's would be better switched around for better balance based on what I've read so far. But I'm more about giving advice based on what I see happening in a game rather than what's wrote down Like I said though, I am enjoying the thread and where its going. Be interesting to see what you come up with as the thread develops.
  7. I've covered this in great depth many times before. It's not that game changing, the community still asking the same questions
  8. Read the articles then make your mind up
  9. I wrote about this topic extensively a fair few years ago. The images are missing in the thread though. But worry not as I still have them on my hard drive. So if you want to read my thoughts on the system, you can do so in the following link (all images included) Part One https://docs.google.com/document/d/1o36GcU81BHmtY88DC9SnEetWJ7aXaBiCntOCJ8AGZOE/edit?usp=sharing Part Two https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GT64VjEj53M3E64Yw2eFQSfLOSiJY42jL0N-2BDLyIM/edit?usp=sharing Part Three https://docs.google.com/document/d/1P4vvDtXSyYkO2F8d8rdm0B3FC50hH-NG8kltkchB7-8/edit?usp=sharing Part Four https://docs.google.com/document/d/1b4wMBJWixYOjp2NWglCNzepQ5DkZ9FdelziYwbCOB7c/edit?usp=sharing It's a lot to take in and a lot of reading but I cover both the normal and deep version in depth. You'll not find a better comprehensive guide to the 4231 in general in my opinion.
  10. He starts off by stating he won't be releasing it yet and explains why. Then later down says it has to be postponed a little until his wife recovers from long covid. Just have some patience. With topics like this its best to tell the story. There are lots to talk about tactically already though if people wanted to question the OP. There are stuff you can see in the stats that are questionable already imo and even on the screenshots. Take his goalkick positioning one that he posted, ye it illustrated what he wanted to show but it also shows 3 possible problematic things in it too.
  11. Height is used if the player doesn't have to leave the ground. Jumping reach is what's used if the player leaves the ground.
