  1. I see. Well that really limits what you can do with the game! I dont want two strikers running forward all the time Have SI acknowledged it?
  2. The rest of my set up looks like this PF A F9 IF s Ws CM S BWM S CWB S CD CD FB S Shorter passing, WBIB, play ball out of defence
  3. Is anyone else having trouble getting their DLF or F9 to drop deep? I'm playing as Arsenal and trying to recreate Wenger's 442 with Dennis/Reyes and Henry up front, with Lacazette and Aubamayeng. I watch my games on 'comprehensive' and most attacks build up down the wings because Lacazette is always heading into the box rather than showing for a pass. Has anyone got any tips? Laca has 'run into channels' - could the affect it? I'm currently training him to come deep for the ball. Thanks
  4. Its encouraging to see this type of goal, I've not managed too many myself except for against teams that open up against me. Can I ask how you managed to achieve so my space in the attacking third?
  5. Any idea when 19.2 will be launched in the full game? Any of the testers able to summarise what the changes are and how they're affecting the gameplay? Thanks
  6. Ah ok thank you. So is there anything you can do to get your reserves teams active? Or will it have to be friendlies only?
  7. Does this mean if you manage a german top flight team your reserves wont play in a league??
  8. Yes I have two central midfielders and use the roles suggested - BBM and DLP S I'm working on 'control' and slowing the tempo down, retaining possession and it seems to be working. Now I just need Giroud and Lacazette to start scoring!! Thanks for the suggestions
  9. I'm going to struggle to teach that PPM to Monreal and Koscielny but I'll give it a try with Mustafi and Chambers. Good idea, thank you. As in terms of team shape and mentality what are your thoughts on how to best build up from the back? Anything else to think of i.e. midfielder roles?
  10. Hi, In my Arsenal save I'm trying to replicate how they currently play (ideally with more defensive stability!) but am finding it difficult. One of the things that stand out is how Monreal and Mustafi bring the ball into midfield and act almost as playmakers. With 3 central defenders this makes sense because the other two can cover for the one bringing it out. What sort of things would you recommend doing in FM? I assumed a control strategy, very fluid, ball playing defenders but this resulted in the centre back staying deep but spraying long passes. Feedback welco
  11. I'm interested in this too. I've been trying to replicate a team that 'builds up from the back' using 3 centre backs to move the ball about, with the outer centre back stepping into midfield to look for openings. So far its proving very difficult and centre backs are quick to move the ball.
  12. Hi all, This might be massively ambitious, but I know there are a lot of creative people out there.. Does anyone know if there's a save game file where the game starts during the summer of 2017 i.e. a year on from the official game start, which has been updated for all the transfers and manager movements to date? I know that it wouldn't accurate around league winners etc. Obviously this is essentially FM18 without the new features! but FM18 is still months away. Like I said, long shot.. but if anyone can point me in the right direction that would be grand! Cheers
