  1. Cool, I restarted with Red Star but had to take a break after being kicked out of the EL because I hit the woodwork 5 times in one match, losing by 1 goal difference in the end.
  2. Cool, looking forward to it. Using it with Chievo, going decent but leaking goals.
  3. Yes this would definitely be a great improvement. Imo that screen should be split into 3 columns with 3 rows (so left attack, center attack, right attack for example). Giving you the option to specificy triggers by zones and by players. Also it should be possible to not only tell your team how to press but also how to be shaped differently when the ball is on the right, left etc.
  4. These threads are great: As are the threads from Ozil to the arsenal, WWfan, Cleon (definitely forgetting a few names), some of them are older, but definitely still apply.
  5. Great tactic, top of the league with Feyenoord, only lost 2 games so far both after red cards. Scoring a lot.
  6. It's working pretty well with Dinamo Zagreb so far. Had a rough start with some red cards and some goals against from corners/fk's but now it has stabilized. After 13 games I'm 3rd in the league with one game in hand which will put me first if I win it. Scored 33, got 11 goals against. Unfortunately lost in the 2nd qualifying round for the CL cause of two goals from set pieces. Now first in the Eufacup group stage with 7 points in 3 matches. Pretty happy so far.
  7. A thing I noticed about the tactic is that I only scored 8-10 times from headers. Maybe changing one to adf would help with that. Also I only conceded 5 goals or something from corners (without rebounds that is I assume) and only scored 6-8 times from then. Last thing, it really helps if you have mc's like Guarin, Romero, Hernanes and M'vila who can all score with long shots. Scored around 18 goals from long shots iirc. Makes up for the high amount of long shots I think. At the end of the season i missed Icardi and Palacio 2 months at the same time and my backup rb broke his leg so I'm pretty
  8. Yay finished 3rd first season with Inter. 68 goals scored in 38 matches, 31 goals against. Hoping for a 1-2 spot next season with some big signings.
  9. So far 4th after 25 matches behind Juve, Sampdoria and Napoli so going pretty decent, not great but not bad either. Still winning in the EC. Pretty satisfied so far.
  10. That's the ME not the tactic. It will probably get patched.
  11. Thanks might try that. Can use some lucky corners. Just lost to Sampdoria (#1 in the Serie A ) after coming back from 2-0 down and then AC Milan after a red card they scored from a corner in the 93th minute. Dropped to 5th position because of that but 1 win can make me 3rd again. Gonna aim for 3rd place this season. Got Clyne, Pereyra (from Juve/Udinese) and Balotti coming in next season + the loaned out left back.
  12. I think I read somewhere that putting one or two tall guys inside the keepers area helps. Conceding from corners is normal though.
  13. Ok my results since dropping Retain Possession: Irony Kiryat A: 3-0 Udinese A: 2-1 Cesena A: 2-0 Napoli H: 3-3 was 1-3 down though Irony Kiryat H: 2-0 Empoli H 3-1 Cagliari A: 3-1 Viktoria Plzen H: 2-0 Sassuolo A: 2-2 Just a question, I've rarely scored from corners, do you have success using aim at far post? I though aim at near post was broken this FM like in every FM that's just released. Might be just me though. Also with the closing down set to very high what do you think of preventing short options (to the gk)? edit2: I'm 3d in the league btw and won 5/5 EC matches so I'm happ
  14. Without retain possession I'm scoring more and conceding a bit more too. I've been thinking about using retain on certain games where I want to keep hold of a small lead, have also been thinking of using direct passing when having a lead to get more counters. Like the Attacking Real Madrid like counter tactic from the CCC article if you are familiar with that. I'll post a list of results later.
  15. Palermo H: 14 Parma A: 15 Viktoria Plzen A: 5 Fiorentina H: 15 Chievo A: 20 Genoa H: 20 Bursaspor H: 19 Lazio A: 14 Juventus H: 10 Shots total, dunno how much half chances/CCC's though.
  16. I'll try it this evening. Also have my only new (non-Italian speaking) signing Romero playing as DLP-d so that probably doesn't help either.
  17. So far my team has trouble scoring goals and creating chances. Results so far: Palermo H: 1-0 Parma A: 1-0 Viktoria Plzen A: 2-1 Fiorentina H: 0-1 (goal from corner) Chievo A: 2-1 (goal from corner) Genoa H: 1-1 (goal after we got a red card) Bursaspor H: 3-0 Lazio A: 1-2 Juventus H: 2-0 yay The good thing is we don't concede a lot, the not so good thing is we don't score a lot either.
  18. Decided on trying this with Inter. (For some reason I'm obsessed with them in FM, not irl) So far won the 2 EC qualifiers and the first league game home to Palermo. Lots of chances in that match but only scored 1-0 in the 88th minute. Unfortunately my midfielders have some nasty ppms: Hernanes and Guarin both have cut inside ppm and shoot from distance, Kovacic has drop deep but we'll see how it goes.
  19. I prefer using 'stay on feet' because it let's your team instantly launch a counterattack when someone takes the ball of someone. With sliding tackles this often isn't possible.
