  1. @knap Thanks for the reply - I have a home/away tactic that scores early goals but keeping conceding late goals due to fitness levels and concentration (Championship). What are the two like in conceding chances? Do you hold that data for these two?
  2. Hi @knap Looking to find a defensive tactic that controls possession and limits chances to the opposition. Any suggestions?
  3. How quickly do slots two and three take to get a tactic to become fluid? Especially if they are vastly different to the tactic in slot one?
  4. First Season Completed: Competitions: 3rd in the league. 5th Round in the FA Cup vs Watford Winner League Cup Finalist of Europa League January Transfer Window: Sold David Luiz as he wasn't being played and unhappy for 16.25 Million to China. That was the only sale I was trying to allow. Other than I got an offer of Sokratis on 27th Feb for 37 Million which I wasn't going to turn down at 31 years old. Left myself short at CB as only had Chambers and Holding and had loaned K Mavropanos out. Overall: Clubs youth has been really impressive just a little inconsistent. Biggest disappointment was my inability to get a tune out of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who scored 14 goals in 32 games even though he had 91 shots on target. Real Madrid are apparently interested so may cash in. Second Season Targets and To Do List Challenge for and hopefully win the League. Sell Elneny (Free), Mkhitaryan (Loan Fee), Ozil (No rush as he performed really well but will lose on free), Aubameyang. Sign another CM, Looking at Florentino Luís from SLB. Find a more balanced formation for a back up. Been using 4-4-2 which worked nicely but occasionally would like to have parked the bus more effectively!
  5. Wrapped up the transfer window with the signing of Gouiri for £17 Million on the scouts reports (76) over Openda (59). Bit more than I was hoping to pay but at 19 years old lots of years left and hopefully will push on. First 3 matches completed 2 wins and 1 loss. 5-1 win against Leicester. They scored first even though we were dominating possession. 3 goals in quick succession followed by a Chilwell being sent off really helped. Most surprising was Ozil playing really well as my left midfield. Followed this up with a 5-2 win away at Newcastle holding a good possession amount of 58% with 24 shots. Disappointed with the amount of chances we conceded so need to work on that. And then at home to Spurs. Changed the formation to try and stop the chances playing 5 at the back. didn't work as we lost 1-0 even with Alli being sent off in the 32 minute. Moura took advantage of the space behind the full back to score. We dominated in the shots department just weren't clinical. So work to do in the tactics!! We have had the draw for the League Cup where we are away at Blackpool. And in the Europa League we have Young Boys, AS Saint-Etienne & Ferencvárosi.
  6. Not an Arsenal fan but decided with the Youth talent in the squad and current management struggles they would make an interesting save. Firstly very surprised with the transfer budget being so small in the first season. 15 Million was not what I was expecting, though didn't realise that they had bought so much in the summer! I had a deep look at the squad and have decided on the following: Selling: Xhaka (Just don't like him as a player) - 32.5Mill to United Mustafi - 12.75 Mill to Wolves with an 18K Wage Contribution. Felt he would distract me from using the two Holding and Chambers Macey - 425K (Not Good Enough) Current Buys: Bruno Fernandes - 37 Million - Better quality in the midfield Nicolo Armini - 800K rising to 1.9Mill with add ons (Young CB - lot of Promise) Aaron Hickey - 180K - Hearts (Versatile Fullback with a lot of promise) Current outstanding issues that I am looking to resolve: Would like some extra cover up top as hoping to play a flat 442 for the majority. Will revert to a 41221 away and big teams. Currently looking at Amine Gouiri or Ikoma Lois Openda. Anybody used either? Also I have returned Cabellos back to Madrid as he doesn't fit the tactic and would like to get rid of Ozil due to his wages and not fitting in my system. Any Suggestions or findings from those who have got through the first season?
  7. I look at it from a different point of view: How many players do you play in his position in your tactic and how many players do you have in the squad to play that position? Have you any youth players you are trying to develop into that position? Can you sell anyone who is on higher wages or who you don't like/wont use? To make room for him? He is a great player but you know your squad!
  8. Without you providing details of tactics and match stats - quite hard to diagnose. Are you creating a lot of chances in comparison to your opponents? Are you controlling possession but not doing anything with it? I find that in a losing streak - its about managing morale and ensuring that you try and get the confidence back in the squad! Stick to a tactic and similar starting line up to allow them to start to gel!
  9. If I allow my U18/reserve squads to be managed I currently set there tactics to copy the first team. One of my biggest frustrations is that I also allow training to be managed by that teams manager. Now if they are playing a specific tactic they should train to those roles for the majority of the time. I'm not saying that should be there only focus but the majority. I'm finding playing a simple 4-4-2 that my wide midfields are being trained as inside forwards, mid fielders are being trained as DM or AM which have no role in my current tactics. I know I can change this and I do but I shouldn't have to as its obvious those roles don't have a future at the club. I normally have two tactics that I use and these should be the priority and trained throughout the club.
  10. Also a comparison with the players at the club as well as all potential targets for that position. Key example I have a great 16 year old prospect LM. My current LM is 31 and struggling so I have been scouting for the position. I keep getting a lot of prospects aged 18-25. Not a problem. I would like to compare all against the 16 year old and want to sign someone who will give me good resale value and will be professional enough to understand I'm looking to progress the 16 year old as he is my long term replacement. At the moment I have to do all of that digging by looking at wages/value/ professionalism etc. Must be a better way of the recommendation stating more information!
  11. Has anyone tried the Huawei Matebook Pro X? Am looking for something light and portable with good battery! Heard the surface pros drain battery giving a play time of around 2 hours which won’t work well enough for me!
  12. I feel the scouting in general needs more control. I have currently about 500 scout reports out and want to prioritise certain players when I open their player screen. The options are limited from the player screen. I also want to disregard/stop scouting automatically any report that comes in say less than 50/60 rather them continuing for a week.
