  1. Experienced Defender - "What "fluidity setting"? As of FM19, team fluidity is primarily just a label and has nothing to do with the "Team shape" instruction from earlier versions." I'm just wondering what this label means if it has no relevance. In my 4-4-2 tactic most of the players play with a support duty role and this shows as a "very fluid" team mentality. If I was to make an alteration to the tactic, change the WM support role to a defend or attack role the team fluidity changes to a "fluid" label and teams tactical familiarity for creative freedom drops. So if t
  2. I'm still forging ahead with the Sacchi-System in my English lower league campaign. I mentioned on the last page I dont have the resources nor talent to replicate the "fancier" roles so my interpretation of Sacchi-Ball for lower leagues is to use bare-naked, regular, basic Central Midfield Roles that play on a pivot. They are both Central Mids on Support duty. One of the players, Rooney...John that is, a natural playmaker and has the PPMs to support this role in the team. Tries killer balls often, Tries long range passes. He is my Ancelotti and I set his individual Instruction to Get
  3. That is good is know! It makes the youth development side of the game feel so much better to dabble with.. Not knowing who could be a surprise star adds more to the game. Now I want to hold on to more of them instead of just going by staff recommended ratings. I'll value attributes now and personality more when deciding who stays and who goes.
  4. I can confirm its nationality based and not call ups based on "dialects". In one longterm save I saw a portugese player, based in portugal, born in portugal, couldnt speak any english dialect but with english second nationality and he was called up to the english u21 team.
  5. My most successful was having 3 tall players congregate around the near post and then the best player who isnt one of the tall 3 but good with heading attribute attacking the far post. Corner taker was instructed to aim at the far post. Resulted in 15 goals over the course of the season for him so I abandoned it in favour of mixed delivery as it was too overpowered and felt like I was cheating. Same style for in-direct freekicks. Tall men in one area but best finisher or heading attribute opposite them and send the ball to him.
  6. Excellent write up as always crusadertsar! I use a very similar system but with two CMs instead of the two DM strata positions you use. I'm in the non-leagues so dont have those wonderfully gifted players to give specialized roles to. Instead one CM will have "get further forward" instruction to give a pivot and link with a TMs in the forward line who in turn has an AF making runs ahead. It gives several diamonds for passing lanes and runners. With progression and more suited players will come shorter passing and more intense pressing. So far this style is clinical up front and very
  7. When I created the newgen experience mod in this package I aimed it to cut back on the insane amount of wonderkids that the default game produces so it should make for a much better experience in a long term career type save - you will really enjoy this mod with your type of career game. MajesticEternity did an amazing job, they are, without doubt, the best files to use for FM in creating a much more dynamic and realistic experience.
  8. I definitely agree the amount of newgens and how good they are is very overweighted, the game becomes easier each season when you can gobble up the wonderkids. I created a much better and more balanced newgen file for the game and really find it helps when playing the long career game. Less wonderkids, less higher potential ability newgens, more varied in nationalities, the best newgens predominantly come from the big clubs, from their fantastic youth academies and scouting systems so you really have to focus on the development of the kids you have and can find with there being less
  9. If you look at this thread where I posted some pics and a vid I use the IWB role to great effect in my formation. I have found, like Impacto says above, the key is to have one man in the DM area. I use the HB role, for your DLP, I found in my formation I can use him in the CM role, moving my AM down as a DLP and the IWBs will still move into the midfield and create that diamond in the midfield. Playing an IWB-Attack role really gets them breaking into the box or having a shot from just outside the area. As a support role they will move the ball around keeping possession. I like to retrain more
  10. For LLM I think your trying to play like the big boys. On my present save in the Vanarama as Stockport I'm playing more of a standard/direct style as the players just dont have very good attributes for them to play a short passing/constant pressing style. There are a couple of teams in my league who do try to play like your style and they are not having much success. The more direct styles are catching them out with balls being played over the high lines which I feel reflects the lower attributes for players in these lower leagues. They just dont have the intelligence or skill levels to p
  11. Its all about space with IWBs, you have to create the space for them to utilize. In my tactic a few posts above, my aim is to use the two IWBs as central midfielders (I retrain CMs to IWBs). If there is no one occupying that space they do play as CMs when we are in possession and out of possession they run back to cover the wings. The mentality of your team also plays a big role in the way your IWBs and HB interact. I dont use above balanced mentality as these three players are the key to my system and I want them playing as a triangle like in that screenshot I posted. I also dont want my
  12. I'm using a HB with two IWB-s and they seem to get ahead of the HB whenever we have possession. On support duty they sit in the midfield area, on attack duty they will make the runs into the box quite frequently. The below video shows a goal from the right sided IWB who was on attack duty at the time. The Left sided IWB was on support duty. IWB Goal1.mp4
