  1. Your HOYD has something with goalkeepers, every year their is a great prospect in intake. 

    Where do you rank financially in the competition? A reckon Glasgow and Celtics are miles ahead of you and will be for a long period. But you must be closing on om the rest of the lot

  2. Great read! I struggle a lot with fm, played it for years and I never really understand why I have succes. Or mostly don't understand how to get that succes. I too keep changing formations, roles, duties and instructions and it was refreshing to read your story. 

    Good luck with your save('s)!

    I just found both of your threads about your way off playing. Such a fresh approach to the game and one I'm going to take inspiration from. I've been trying to implement some NFL principles into the game, but being a soccer fan first I've struggled. These explanations have given me so many pointers :onmehead:

    Aside from that you've also thought me a lot about how NFL teams approach there game. I've watched the NFL on and off for 20 years (packers "fan") but this part always remained a mystery to me.

    Are you still playing fm atm?

    I think I've heard from Rashidi that the bold it's not true. Playing a more aggressive role won't make their defensive line deeper per se.

    That could be true. Maybe it's just that dropping deep means the striker runs into the dm. 

    What I do know is that it helps me, the playing field opens up a bit and I usually become more dangerous by doing this. 

  5. To make it more cynical start with expecting to loose because everything you will try doesnt really change anything 😜 

    Their are a couple of questions you might want to ask yourself before you change your plan. All about why don't we win the games. 

    1 are we supposed to be winning? 

    2 are we fit enough to play (are they're injuries and or are we to fatigued) 

    3 do we score too little

    4 do they score too much

    5 can we keep the ball

    1 if the answer is no then it's not a problem with the tactic but with the quality of your team. You can offcourse over achieve and then the answer lies within answers  3 to 5

    To answer those question I would suggest you rewatch the first half of the season. Find out what's happening usually works better without the adrenaline of the match. Just watch a little bit more then the goals (comprehensive?), don't know the English term for it. Take notes about where the goals come from, set pieces, crosses from the flanks etc. And when they occurred. Do the same with your own goals. 

    And adjust your tactic making sure you won't give up your scoring threat. And if you found out theres a specific moment in the match you concede the most goals only change your approach for that periode.

    If for example you concede a lot in the first 15 minutes, then be cautious at start. Let them do their thing and when the slow down a bit it's your time to put the pressure on. Or if you find out de dribble thrue the middle see if you can decrease the amount of space they have. Something I usually do is start with players that are more defensive solid without changing anything about the tactic. But just the fact that a player is less likely to make a mistake or more likely kills an attack can make the difference. 

    I wouldnt change to much to be honest because what you've got works pretty well. Better teams will always give you a problem, definitely if your playing at their home. And if you can't find a pattern then don't change anything. 

  6. When playing against defensive sides that play with 1 or 2 dm's I usually switch my DLF to AF. Because the area where you want your DLF to operate is full and there's little to no room for him to do its thing. Resulting in lots of shots being blocked, or from to far or endless playing around without really achieving something. 

    By switching to a more aggressive role your forward will push the dline back and thus creating space for your runners. Also depending on the kind of forward he is he might be usefull as target in the air. 

     

  7. Interesting thread to follow, I've had similar issues, but with a far better team (Arsenal) 

    I ended up with a similar tactic. I do put a ap on the flanks fairly regularly to fill in the gap behind the dlf-a. Always combined with a bwm in cm on the same side.

    But I always play with a bwm, no mather what the tactic is. Can't help myself :p

    I do change the roles if I feel the opponent has a certain weakness I can exploid or a strength I need to counter. I also tweak the TI's a bit for those reasons. I rarely use any PI's other then giving a certain player a width instruction for again the same reasons. 

    I change the role or duty for 1 or both backs for defensive stability down the flanks, the same can be said for the width of the defence (either via TI or PI) 

    I change my dm settings for defensive stability through the middle. Maybe even switch to a 2 dm tactic. When I use a counter tactic I also usually use a 2 dm setup with aggressive backs. 

    Booth CM's can change in role but there's always a more attacking one on the right. Either a playmaker or a finisher

    Aml can change to AP or WTM if something else is needed. 

    I change my attacker between DLF, AF or PF depending on the kind of defence I face. 

  9. It is. I'm playing a slow tiki taka style of football with arsenal atm. I have trouble playing the bigger sides and will use counter against them. But other then those matches I win all most everything, 5, 6 or 7 goals have happend a couple of times now

    I do play with 1 dm and 2 cm or 2 dm and 1 cm/am though so not a 4231
