  1. why two BPD? Seems from your other instructions(witch there are way to many off) you want to play out from the back and play possesion fotball. Seems a common misconception. BPD are actualy more likly to try direct passes and take risk. Also take new screenshots in English this time so it will be more easy for the tactics guys on the forum to understand.
  2. Hmmz, intresting, will try it out, might also give the PF role a go aswell, will leave most of pi at default aswell and adjust when I see their behavior and play. Thank you again for all your help, starting up tomorrow, will be intresting, cheers!!
  3. Again thanks for help. Isent a IWB and Overlap a contradiction? it very much go against the role description. So made some changes for now, think I will start with this and adjust as needed. Perhaps change the defenders role, so the cover is on the left?
  4. First of all, big thanks for your help. So a few questions\comments lets start in defense. I want my fullback to get forward specialy on the left side where the iw cuts inside. So if its to risky perhaps a diffrent role for the left central midfield? Why no stopper and DM? the stopper role I have considerd removing as he leaves to much space behind and the cover partner dosent seem to keen on actualy covering. The DM Defend vs DLP Defend, I would prefer the DM Defend but cant actually adjust his pressure as I want to, its set to standar and cant be interacted with. (want him to press less to sit and shield defense) I dislike playmakers in general, (ball magnets) but find that the DLP D suits defensivly but is an issue offensivly when players seems to think passing to him is more importent then attacking thus forcing us to start all over. Btw Matic is in the squad just to slow and with dvels on the ball trait he keeps loosing it to pressure, Fred is far from perfect but I always start with transfer window closed (far more fun) the role is certenly not intended for him long term. Dont want a DLP su, (se my dislike for playmakers) the Bwm Su, I've chosen as I like to pressure and he is great at it, on support and giving him freedom to go forward he ofen ends up providing support in the box aswell. Winger on attack seems nice going forward but will he track back? PF up front, I have never used one before, how does he behave when we have the ball? Upploaded my 4-2-3-1 now changed from 4-1-1-3-1 AS. Its well completly identical actually, well almost to my 4-1-2-3. And its my primery, only use the 4-1-2-3, when I feel I need extra man in midfield. As its almost the same can I assume the same suggestions? I still want to retain my own style\philosefy if you will, but certenly appriciated your input. Have the same issue with static attack thats I assume anyway is what leading to the high crosses. Anyway a big thanks again to you, and anyone els who might come along and offer advice.
  5. Yeah my bad, dident even think about that. Anyway done now, So I`m I not creating space? are my offensive player to easy to mark out?
  6. So before patch I was rocketing it. Good resaults decent play, somewhat along what I wanted. Sure there was shooting into the netting from the byline 75% of the time, but when my wide men wasent doing that they created some nice goals. Now however they absolutly refuses to pass\cross low into the box, instead they hoof it into the air. With Martial, Rashfoord, Greenwood etc in the box that dosent do ****. I have low crosses in the tactics but dosent help at all. I want my wingers to attack the box with speed, dribbling, while we get plenty of players inside the box. that part is working, but when they have good oppertunetis to pass\low cross they hoof it into the air. Any advice, tips, helpt etc would be great.
  7. Seems a bug to me. must be right? Any real life player would know this deal was made before your time at the club
  8. I ignore most\all off his advice, but if you could find somone with decent coaching statts, like defendig, attackting etc you can make use of him during training.
  9. Its always been like that for me. Dosent matter what the assman have as his pref style, he will always recomend the opposite to what we are doing.
  10. Howe is Smalling doing in Roma for you guys? In my save he is their 2th top goalscorer with 6 goals with 24games.
  11. I do play with Man Utd. but that really shouldent matter, right? I had some report from the beta, witch I did not play myself; that Liverpool and Man City was hitting the 90+points mark. But I have never seen it myself in any game\save. The other top teams drops point left right and center in the latest versions and dont manage 80p making you win the league by default. So was kind of exited about the prospect of a difficult challange. At 15 of Febuary Liverpool is sitting at nr 2 with 55p in 26games, making them hit 80p if they keep it up. I get that playing as Man Utd will influence it to some degree, me taking points from them, but the rate at witch they (City, Liverpool) drop points from the 6-20 teams have been an issue for me for many games. I could start a new save, see if its a one off.
  12. 15 of February. Thats how long he lasted, witch btw is a new record for any of my FM games and saves. How come this issue cant be fixed? Year after year, the best manager in the world\game with the best squad in the league is the first to get the boot. Why havent SI fixed this? or is it really just me who have this issue?
  13. Not much help to get, so I have worked this out for myself. Still could use any advice, is there anything that stands out? Anyway time to get this save going, who knows might not need any help in the end
  14. Its time to start my Man Utd save, I have a general ide of how I want to play, but I have found that alot of what I thought I knew about FM and tactics dont hold up, systems that I have used for the last decade dosent play out the way I want them to. So I have come up with some changes taking into account what I have learned from my other saves but I could use some help and I have alot of questions. So lets just jump in and set up the team. 4-2-3-1 or 4-1-1-3-1. GK: nothing fansy, not using a sweeper keeper. I do use a higher line with my defense but think a standard keeper is going to be fine, DDG can do what he does best. RB: IW. I used to like a fullback overlaping and help creating space for winger or help cross. But now I find it dosent work the way it used to. Crosses gets mostly blocked and despite instructions to cross from byline they seem to just lump them in for downpitch. So I want to try IWB. He might as well be usefull and help midfield keep possesion instead of wasting away the ball with crosses. Center Defenders: Always been a fan of the Bruce\Pallistar, Johnsen\Stam, Ferdinand\Vidic system so Cover and Stopper. I was considering using a BPD, and while I have seen some nice creating passes, most of the time it seems the BPD just lumps the ball away with over complicated attemts giving away possesion. DL: Big question. Not sure what to use, while the RB have a winger infront of him to play wide, I will use a inside forward on the left. So Would like the LB to play wider. However again I dont want him to cross willy nilly so the Vingback type rolles seems like a bad ide. Or maybee it is not so bad if only one fullback is doing it? Really could use some advice here. DML: Deep lying playmaker defend duty. Seems simple enough, want him to help the defense play out the ball and keep it simpel at the same time screen and shield the defense. My question is if this role will interfere with my Attacking guy in the senter up front. Can i get him to do what i want in onother role, just a standard DM-Defend duty perhaps? SM(R): Ball winning. I do use higher defense line and higher pressing line, not the extreme but one up from standard. I do want my team to press to win the ball back but not to extreme. The Ball winning role seems suited for this. On support and freedom to get forward he will also help up in attack. RW: Winger support ?. I want to maintain some wideplay and to play abit Wide to create space. LW: Inside forward. Support or Attack? He is to cut inside link up with my Attacking sentral guy (Pogba) I want him to create space with movment, assist, score, etc. Attacking Offensive Sentral player: Not sure what role to use. Want him to be creative with passes, but also scoring goals. Striker: Deep Lying forward or will that just have him get in the way of Pogba and ISF? Advanced striker or will that just have him hunting for room behind defense that dosent exist? Poacher but that will make him avoid build up play. I want to play possesion, not that I really care about the numbers but it is a tool to control the game and play. Pod, Shorter passing, Dont want to play on high tempo but cant play on to low. Control is well and nice but we need penetraition. Work ball into box? or is it overkill? how will players behave whitout it? How to get the right balance in pressure? Using higher lines, is more instense pressure overkill? I also intend to create and almost identical tactic, just with a 4-1-4-1 wide. So, yeah, I have alot of questions and who knows maybe its something wrong with what I dont have questions about. I`ll take any help and advice anyone can offer, Thanks.
