  1. I'd like a shot at that game as well. Please upload. I have a pretty poor grasp of how things work tactically but I have no doubt I could win it by using the few things I have learned.
  2. I do have a left wing back on Attack and he is actually out there outside of the frame Thats also happens now and then, but we have trouble converting from crosses, my striker who is a tall fellow with 15 in heading rarely scores headers for some reason.
  3. Precisely the right person to answer my question. Thank you, won't feel to bad about those misses now
  4. I've been trying for quite some time to get my AM to consistently create good chances without much success. So I started to analyse the issue and I've noticed that the AM actually creates these kind of through balls pretty frequently (#19 passed via the red arrow to #22 Spalek). These chances have yet managed to turn into a goal and over the last season and I've had more than 10 of these. What often happens is that either my IF or my Striker gets the chance and they have ALWAYS shot straight at the keeper. Do I expect too much from a chance like this?
  5. Thank you, a lot of good ideas. I can also add that the current choice of players is not the most "optimal" starting eleven, so in general my players are more suited to the roles chosen. I played around with the AM in a supporting role but found that the BBM and the AM(S) often occupied the exact same area, this is not something you see when using support in the AM slot? I want to play possession based football, but I don't think we really have the creativity, flair and dribbling skills right now to break down stubborn defences so that's why I started to play around a bit with countering, to try and get some more space for my very quick wingers fo work with. I will try out your suggestions as soon as I get back to playing, thanks!
  6. Hello, I should start by explaining that there is some unrealistic input in this save, this is a team I created from scratch with zero players (I bought the entire team during pre-season), I also changed the entire Swedish league system. This will of course affect everything, the team not being very well gelled and so on. I wanted to use an AM, having failed to get one to work succesfully since FM17. I wanted us to play possession football and probing the enemy defence. It worked quite well until, I guess, we claimed first place in the league with 9 points down to second and everyone started to play more defensively. We have now failed to score for 5 games and things are starting to look grim. Surprisingly (for me at least) we have been extremely solid at the back and the opposition rarely have more than 2-3 shots at goal while we usually have between 8 and 15 shots on goal. My first response is rarely to go more attacking, Instead I've been trying to fall back and use counters once I notice that we will have the usual run towards a solid and regrouped defence and lose the ball or fire a pointless long shot. Despite having some of the quickest wingers in the league we have not succeeded with any counters so far. At this point I just wanna see a goal (almost at the point where a goal from the oppo would be acceptable :P) So, how do I proceed from here? How can I use my AM better? (Got a total of 4 goals and 4 assists from the AM position for the entire season and lately nothing at all. Constantly below 6.4 ratings). Only PIs are AM (Take more risks)
  7. I hear ya, but the wording doesn't really make that seem plausible. "They categorically dismissed Joakim Lundmark's interest in the job, stating that the club should not be considering HIS APPLICATION and will instead continue to appraise other candidates for the post". At this point it would seem likely that the manager, in this case me, would actually be interested in the job since an application has been brought forth
  8. I ended up in Leicester who was 7th in the Championship. I got offers from Watford and Bristol City as well, both in mid Championship. Burnley were the only ones who didn't like me.
  9. Could be But I actually applied for the job and they didn't even get me an interview, instead they hired Lee Johnson the manager of 16th positioned Nottingham Forest. Just a bit odd, maybe not even topic-worthy...
  10. Not sure what the editor could do that would affect all of this in such a way? I have money, I increase my budgets because that's how I like to play. I use TFFs Gladiator tactics which makes my teams overperform. My reputation is currently continental at 4 full stars. My starting reputation was the highest possible with the highest Licence. So the most unrealistic part here would probably be the tactic since money isn't exactly unrealistic. Still weird why the Burnley fans would laugh at me I think considering I get offers from Chelsea, Inter, Barcelona and now Dortmund.
  11. Sure, I have money and I use a really good tactic by TFF. Is that reason enough you say?
  12. Sure this have to be a bug? I resigned after winning CL and La Liga with Valencia and then spent 5 months without a job. Burnley lounging in the lower end of the Championship in November just fired their manager and I declared my interest. This is the response from their fans? Really? Bug or some valid explanation? My stats:
  13. Not in the First Round but rather the first round we play in.
  14. I'm seeing very few goals as well. This is the current amount after 32 games. Chelsea in the top with only 55? Surely this is a bit low?
  15. Thanks for nice tactics that don't use 3 strikers! I'm on the public beta so that might be the reason for this, but I can't get the AF to work at all. The tactics are good, but the AF have so far produced 5 goals (2 pens) in half a season as Liverpool. I play with the 3.0 DM verison, I also tried the latest one you posted here but the issue remains. AF get constantly below 6,5 ratings. Firmino/Salah are the ones I've tried up top, maybe no the right kind of players?
  16. The FA-cup keeps being my bogey-cup, I haven't managed to get past the first round in any of my saves in FM19 (tried 20+ times). It's absurd to the point where I just laugh at it now. This time the mighty attacking force of QPR ended it for us.
  17. Fair enough! This is a player who in general doesn't seem to be very professional, so he might be less inclined to suffer the pain. Have to admit that I can't remember if it turned into an orange injury or not, I've played 1,5 seasons since my original post. Anyway, won't take up any more forum space, it's seems like it could happen and I guess it was a case of bad luck!
  18. So maybe a bit more information then? I hike alot (like once or twice a week) and I've had blood filled blisters, blisters that made me want to cry and even flesh wounds after walking half a day with blisters. 8-10 days would is extreme, especially considering the resources a modern football club should have medically. And with the right handling (special bandages and such) I've been able to continue walking the day after without much pain. Am I missing some kind of brutal blistering here that I've simply never experienced? Sorry, it's a small thing and doesn't really take away anything from the game, but I find it odd that professional football players with and infinite shoe-budget (probably custom made to their feet) could find themselves in a place where suddenly, after a light training session, they have to be away for up to 2 weeks because of something that shouldn't be hard to avoid
  19. Should blisters really be an 8+ days red injury? I get it, they hurt a lot, but would someone say no to a CL-final because of blisters?
  20. I just recieved a 12gb update for a game thats a total of 16gb because they fixed the lag with loading screens. It's not about the amount of fixes, it's about what files they effect.
  21. FIrst of all, I'm impressed you can play whilst riding in a car. I'd throw up within a minute! Could it have to do with TV broadcasting?
  22. Aye, there are other attributes for sure. But I would like more context about it because in some cases no visual attributes are better than the current staff members. And even in the case where Physiotherapy is 14 compared to my current 20 but Adaptability for example is 13 on the suggest staff member and 12 on my current I wouldn't think that the 14 Physio 13 Adaptability is an improvement on my current 20/12
  23. Howdy, Not sure this is worthy of a thread on it's own but couldn't find anywhere to post it. It's kind of a feature request and also a question. So as the title read it's regarding the Backroom teams advice when it comes to "Improve quality of X team". Currently I'm managing Crystal Palace and I keep getting suggestions on improving my Physios, Fitness Coaches, Data Analysts and Sport Scientists. This is all well, good that they think we can improve, the problem is: Not enough context, which Physio do they think we can improve upon? Their suggestions all have lower stats than my current physios. So I would like more information on why we should hire someone with 15 physiotherapy and fire one of my current who all have 20. Is this much like the assistants tactical suggestions, something everyone mainly just ignores or is there something to it? Could a 11 Fitness Coach actually be better than the current 17 Fitness Coach?
  24. Thanks for info! I have players from all three units complaining about it Guess I need to get a new Assistant or take over training myself then!
