  1. season 2 (pre season) and man city have just purchased harry kane for 191m all cash!!!!
  2. finally finished season 1 after numerous restarts. i finished 3rd in the league. i made it to the fa cup final against arsenal which i won 1-0 i got knocked out of the carabao cup in round 4 by west ham losing 4-1 i reached the final of the euro cup playing lazio, winning 2-1 after extra time transfers in nathan ake for 52m nicklas bendtner for 800k transfers out matic for 6.75m a major rebuild needed for season 2. a left back and right back along with 2 other wingers being the major requirements. will aim to get rid of any dead wood and players that just dont belong at united. rashford had a blinder of a season scoring 47 goals in 58 apps (all comps) greenwood was a revelation scoring 11 goals in 19 apps including the winner in the euro cup final!! pogba ended up with 11 goals and 11 assists in 48 games. however he did create the most chance through out the season with 45 which i think is a little low so will probably cash in on him soon. i did notice that in the last 50 games i managed to create over 200 clear cut chances so i may tally them up for the whole season and see just how many i created
  3. right ive figured how to take screen shots. i started again here is my tactic. not really sure how it came about, just trial and error until things improved. kept it basic and took off counter press as i found my players were just running around like loonys. which was suicide against the top teams. rashford and martial have been great so far with 45 goals between them. pogba been quite good this season. i usually sell him but decided on keeping him this time. hes pitched in with 9 goals and 6 assists in 27 appearances
  4. 7 games without a win so far. 3 losses 4 draws. im at a loss at the moment. what can i do???
  5. is anyone else finding it hard to win games on this edition. not too bad at home but away is just lose lose lose (draw if im lucky) i play a 442 standard formation have got martial scoring but just cant win away from home. i didnt want to change formation but im thinking its for the best
  6. i succumbed to temptation and purchased fm20. just having a little play around before i start a proper season. prob wait till the final patch is out for that. just curious as to what peoples preferred formation is on this edition? i love a good old fashioned 442 but i would love to see if anyone has managed to get a narrow 4231 working tactic. this was my favourite formation on an older version of fm (fm10 i think) but i havent really seen it since. be interesting if people still use it. im coming to the end of my first season with united and have been tinkering with this formation most of the season. martial upfront has scored 39 goals so far (all comps)
  7. this is my attempt so far. the poacher doesnt have move in to channels PI ticked nor does he have the MIC ppm. the PF has move wide with the ball PI selected. im hoping this drags the defence wide making room for the poacher. have only tried it in one game so far and my poacher scored 2. hopefully it wasnt just luck and he continues to score
  8. this is a great question!! one i have really struggled in finding a solution. granted im not a very good fm manager but i like a good old 442 and like my strikers to be the main scorers( i dont mean 50+ etc but more than 25) its this mind set ive really struggled with. how on earth do i make this happen? i have opened a thread about it somewhere and had many useful hints and tips but always struggled to implement them into the game. so i shall be keeping and eye on this thread for more guidence
  9. is anyone else struggling with man united? i keep getting sacked. i have an ok 1st season(win most things) have an amazing 2nd season then it usually goes to pot. have tried many tactics and it all seems to end up this way. ive tried to create tactics (i like an old fashioned 442) i do alright for a season then its like my players forget how to play football.very frustrating
  10. My AF and IW are my main goal scorers. I thought the DLF would create space for the IW. I have thought about moving him to a IF but unsure about it in regards to defending.
  11. Cheers for the replies. I hadn't taken in how it would have effected the whole team. I shall keep that instruction off for the time being and watch more of the build up instead of focusing on the end product. Also hadn't realised the other roles weren't advancing as far forward as I initially thought.
  12. just a general query really. i am using a 442 formation that seems to be working well for my man united side. i have been keeping team instructions to minimum. as you can see in the screen shot that i have the pass into space option selected which has been great for my AF to score. ( 22 goals in 27 appearances ) my DLF had 5 in 18. i was happy with this as i wanted my AF to be the main scorer. Any way i removed the pass into space option and my DLF scored 4 goals in 1 game and 2 in the following so thats has 6 goals in 2 games. granted against inferior opposition but i was just wondering if removing pass into space caused that upsurge in goals or is it just coincidental? i must add that my AF also scored 3 goals in those 2 games
  13. i really like the old fashioned 442. down the wing cross it in while my central mids do the hard work and ping some lovely balls forward for the strikers. I do not have a vast knowledge of the game or football in general but i know what i would like to see happen. one variation of a 442, i did see that to some extent. however i had far too many draws and beaten by inferior teams that i got the sack as per usual.. defending wise i have tried various types. a high press to nullify the opposition but all i saw was my team turn to jelly, conceding too may goals on the counter. i tried sitting deep and and i conceded long shots for fun. i struggled to find a balance to the defending that i gave up on it and went for the we will score more than you mentality which i also failed at. i have tried writing down my results to help me understand better but i am clearly failing at the game. admittedly i am a casual gamer who doesn't have the time to play as much as i would like. 30 mins here and there if im lucky.
  14. Well I got sacked again. I think I'll give up now. Im clearly failing to understand the game even with all the advice I've received personally and via the forum. Game over
