  1. FM19 question here. I generally play a 4-1 type of defense and just realized both my 2 CB and first team DM all have the PPM Marks Opponent Tightly. I'm a bit worried if this might cause problems since I like to use a high line coupled with press. They have around 13 acceleration and pace which is not too bad in my division, by the way. Any advice?
  2. So I was in a pre-season game against Southampton where their striker had a superb 17 Acceleration coupled with 17 Pace and PPM "likes to beat offside trap". My defenders don't have acceleration above 14. How should I tackle this problem? I can't ask them to man-mark the guy, they'll just lose sight of him. Indeed, the two goals he scored were from balls over the top, so it should be a good idea to drop the defensive line, but at the same time I don't think so, because he has all that acceleration. Suggestions?
  3. Thanks for the reply Barside, I appreciate it. I did mostly some situational changes, keeping the positions as they were. The most relevant was changing the BBM to AP(S). It has been doing fine though. Right now I'm experiment with different role combinations on the midfield. I have another question though. How can one distinguish, while looking through a match, if a given turnover in possession was caused by the role, positioning, bad decisions, bad anticipation or bad off the ball of a player? I did some screenshots from a play, it's somewhat recurrent, but not specific of a given player, i
  4. Stupid question here. I'm using a 4-2-4 system, and sometimes my fullbacks have low scores after the match (I've seen 6.4, 6.2 and such). In one of these situations, I warned the player in question and told him that he played badly; the response was something like: "the midfield wasn't helping" -- I wasn't really expecting that. Now, I'm not looking for something thorough, just some suggestions. I'm trying to put up a system with some emphasis in attack without using any kind of TI, Standard/Flexible: G(D) FB(S) CD(D) CD(D) FB(S) CM(D) BBM(S) IF(A) CF(S) AF(A) W(A) I'm using fullbacks o
