  1. Can anyone help me out with some tactical knowledge please. I wanna try and recreate Uniteds current free flowing attacking style but I’m unsure how to fully set up as in the build up phase i see it as a 4-1-2-3 wide but in the attacking 3rd it’s a 4-2-3-1. I did try and initially set up as a 4-1-2-3 with the DM as a HB due to having Matic/McTominay down between the CBS to receive the ball but then I can’t really get a player to take up the AM slot when I’m attacking. Anyways this is how I’m currently set up (not at my laptop sorry so no SS) GK WB, BCB, BCB, WB HB
  2. Stupid question but has anyone got any advice on getting a 4-2-3-1 to work on FM07?
  3. Tbh I haven’t played the save for a few weeks and I can’t remember what tactic I’m using. i have gone onto one of Knaps I know that (pretty sure it’s a 4-3-3 narrow) ive found that personally yet again the wide players on this years game (to me) seem really badly coded. They either cross appallingly regardless of attributes or they run at the goal and shoot when there are much better passing options regardless of role so knaps 4-3-3 was a better way to go
  4. I got Haaland as he fit my criteria of being a young player with potential and he’s world class and I wasn’t fussed about the wages as if dropped Sanchez onto a new 2 year contract on £200k a week so I’d saved £250k. Plus Liverpool wanted him so that helped the decision, 65 odd goals in around 78 league games isn’t a bad return either
  5. Well I think I got him for £20m with tbh is a steal for the lad, just give him games and he will improve and become a mainstay if the team for years
  6. I’d agree with pretty much everything you’ve said to be honest. Garner has become a starter for me so much so that I sold Frenkie De Jong and Pogba to fit him in. I brought Florentino Luis as a DM/defensive CM and he’s been amazing, he’s my rotation with McTominay. Bellingham is just a must, he’s played great for me in every position I’ve played him (LW,RW,AMC,CM) id possibly go a slightly different route to you in terms of RW and ST though. I brought in Haaland for the ST and Sancho for RW and Haaland has been great, Sancho not so much. Personally if I started my save agai
  7. I just find it odd how the game randomly assigns a side. I’ve got a CB the was retrained after he came through a youth intake as a pure RB. Anyways he’s now my 3rd choice CB but when played there he prefers to be on the left of a 2 man defence for some reason. On the whole I imagine it’s possibly some sort of ‘proof of concept’ by SI to improve realism, like how Terry always played on the left, Ferdinand on the right in whichever defence they were part of, or how Pogba is well known for being played on the left for both club and country
  8. No really a list of specific players but just set your player search to look for free players and then search for players with x amount of international caps, then check them out to see if attribute wise they’re good enough to join you
  9. 3 games into my 5th season and my gamble on letting Frenkie De Jong and Pogba go has so far paid off. We’ve won all 3 games scoring 13 and conceding 3. Garner, Florentino Luis and Bellingham are doing very nicely as my starting midfield 3 (Bruno is injured for 2-3 months) and Marcus, Haaland and Greenwood are all in the goals with Haaland join top scorer in the league with Liverpool’s Mbappe. We also won the Charity Shield coming from behind to beat 2-1 league favourites Liverpool 3-2.
  10. Well my 4th season is complete and we won the carabao cup, FA Cup and the league winning 33, drawing 4 and losing once to Southampton of all teams. I was debating which players to trim from the squad as I want to give more game time to Bellingham, Hannibal and Garner but I have, Florentino Luis, Frenkie De Jong, Pogba and Bruno all ahead of them. De Jong spent the majority of the season wanting to leave for one reason or another and after several meetings with him and nothing changing, plus his terrible performances in training over several months it was almost a god send when PSG of
  11. So another Youth Intake has come and gone and again the only player worth signing is a defender. This years lucky kid is Gary McDonnell who is a RB and unlike Hubbard i will actually be keeping him there. Overall he doesn't look bad for a 16 year old and he has an overall potential of 4 gold and 5 black stars so he could potentially be my first choice RB for quiet some time
  12. Season 4 is now coming towards March and I’m either 3 points clear of Liverpool with a game in hand or 6 points clear. (Can’t remember if I played the game in hand or not before I finished playing yesterday) ive lost 3 times all season being community shield, super cup and my final CL group game and I’ve had 2 draws in the league. I also managed to get the Norway job after the 2022 World Cup finished which I’m looking forward to what with them having Haaland, Odegaard and Berge as a strong core of players that all fit into the tactics I use. So far this season couldn’t have gone
  13. Hmm not sure on that one then, I know on older versions it was a thing that if you went too long without getting a job it basically made it easier to get one by apparently changing reputation behind the scenes but not sure on newer games
  14. Also being an international manager as well as a lower league manager will stop me from having to holiday through the international breaks all the time. well that is odd, how long were you unemployed for?
  15. Yeah it’s gonna be a long save for sure. But the idea is to combine my 2 yearly saves into one rather than jumping between the two and getting nowhere with either. ah I didn’t think of that. Think there’s 2 weeks left so I’ll organise some friendlies and get them all playing
