  1. Nothing to do with me mate lol, I think it came up when you edited my swear word out of it? How would you suggest I become a bit more defensively sound without compromising my attacking play too much?
  2. Thanks for the reply. Just wanted to encourage play down both flanks as that's where I wanted our attacks to come from. Did think about the FB on A so will do that and drop the focus play. I'll tinker around with the middle lot and see if I can switch it up a bit, I know about Bowen, However, I've had success with Anderson playing the IW role and wanted to get him in there, and Bowen was decent in the 1st season but he is a player I'm looking at replacing this summer. I've played Haller in them roles but although it says they're his best roles I never seem to get the best out of him,
  3. After some advice. Had this tactic with my West Ham team, (Only difference is that instead of the Mezzala I used an AP and the DLP has been on support for the most part and the LOE has been at standard), played some excellent football using it and had a good 1st season. Had some bad results along the way but overall it was an over achievement really. Had a good summer, cleared out most of the crap and bought in better players with the idea that I'd buy players that would suit my formation rather than buying players for the sake of it. Started the 2nd season very well however and was going
  4. I have mate and like you, found that it just isn't the same so always end up back with the full version. I will introduce my son to the touch version though, I never even thought of that before!
  5. Not too sure if I'll buy it tbh, It's the best management simulator out there, however I think this also affects the progress. There's no competition from anyone else so SI know that they haven't got to do too much each year and they're still going to coin it in. I think with the current affairs we have going on in the world, now is the perfect opportunity for SI not release a game this year (just release squad updates) and concentrate on polishing up the current format and maybe even release a book that explains the in's and outs of the game. I understand that it's a simulatio
  6. Thanks mate, that’s helpful, I did think about telling them to hold shape when ball is won but I’ve always seemed to find that when using that on other saves. the AI get back into shape and it becomes slow and we end up losing the ball. Didn’t think about the roam from position PI’s so I’ll give that a crack and see how it goes.
  7. Started a new save with Barce. Going to try and replicate the famous years under Guardiola. Done a bit of searching online but there's a surprisingly lack of tactical analysis done on that team (or at least I didn't look hard enough to find it) However, going off mainly memory and a bit of info I have picked up I've quickly come up with this as a base. Keen to get some thoughts on a couple things; At the moment, I'm not too bothered with the players, the squad needs an overhaul anyway so for now I want to get a base sorted then start building the squad. 1- Does this look anythi
  8. Think yourself lucky, in years gone by, once you got so much in then bank, the game couldn't process it so put you millions in the red
  9. What did you set as your previous experience when setting up your manager? If you chose Sunday league/ semi pro then I agree it's a bit strange, however, if you had a high reputation within the FM world to start with, them prem clubs would look at who your managing and believe they are bigger and that they'd have a good chance of poaching you away from Bristol.
  10. I've got some decent seasons out of him tbh, I normally struggle with a n0.10 but in his 1st season, he played the AM on attack, scored 11, assisted 6, last season I tweaked the system slightly and he was still AM but on support and it flipped round and he scored 5 and assisted 10. So far this season, in 7 games he's assisted 4 goals.
  11. I had the same issue, somehow qualified for it after losing the Champions League final (although did win Europa League 3 years after so felt a bit more worthy) and noticed it was 4 years away. We had 4 years notice that this was going to be played yet our players still went on holiday. We came back and our 1st game was against Barcelona, after 15 minutes, all of my players were at 60-70%, I managed to beat them and rotated for the 2nd game but as the games come thick and fast, my team were blowing. We did go on to win it through absolute luck but in the future, if I ever get there and thi
  12. I just need advice, I'm interested to hear what you would do, wholesale changes are not a problem. I'm currently in the midst of 7 games without a win and we are playing absolutely shocking so please, give me your advice. We are struggling to create chances, all our highlights end with our shots being blocked by defenders, we're not tackling anymore, players are just running through us.
  13. Yeah after setting up a bit different, I started winning games but it still wasn't as good as I wanted so I went online to look for some advice and came across a Wulf Knap tactic which fitted in with how I was looking to play so I used the instructions and changed the 2 CB's to BPD's and put in a B2B. I get what you're saying about not changing things but I can see things changing, I've always been pretty good at creating good chances but we've started to drop off and end up with 20-25 shots per game but only 3 or 4 on target so it's obvious that things are beginning to change. I'm just
  14. After some advice please. Playing as West Ham and have been using this tactic to very good effect over the last few seasons, I've won 2 Carabao Cups, 1 Europa League and 1 Club World Club while using it. The problem is, I'm now starting to find that I'm coming up against teams sitting so deep against me that we're starting to struggle to break teams down, we've currently played 10 league games and even though we do sit top at the moment, I've started to become reliant on set pieces and long range efforts to get me through games. The problem is, I'm not too sure where to go from here,
  15. Can anyone help. When clicking on this screen, I'm sure on previous FM's that at any point, you could click on your own line and see the trophies you'd won like you can with Guardiola but for some reason, there's no option to click on my name and when you do click on the name, although it highlights, it still shows the last manager you've clicked on. Will this change when I have enough points to get onto the leaderboard or is this an issue that could need fixing?
