  1. Sometimes there are interesting rumours about players, but I rarely pay attention when it's not any way related to my team.
  2. Pretty good advice. Been trying my own tactic lately, it's pretty decent.
  3. For me, it's just a football simulation. If something in match really annoys me, I'll restart. It's not like AI's feelings would get hurt.
  4. My first time with FM 2020, though I have had FM since 2015 but not couple of latest. So bear with me. I am bit of "hands off" manager when it comes to training, scouting etc. Technical Director? What does that bugger do? Since it seemed a good idea and suited for required skills, I got one with 18 and 20 in suggested fields and put him to hire and fire staff etc. Does that work? Tactics? Anyone point me to good LFC downloadable tactics I can download for team that do not give me grief as Gegenpress 433..? Apparently I suck more than my share as tactical manager Obviously, as with Tactical Knowledge, my profile is 20... Help!
  5. I think in previous version, might been FM15, got 3 players sent off....
  6. Just substituted AMC to DL...so my run continues....
  7. I just managed to substitute my GK accidentally with DR...still won 2-0. It was LFC, so they kept the ball...
  8. For me what works great is having DMC as defend, MC as Ball Winning MC and other as Advanced Playmaker.
  9. I'll tinker it wee bit. It's not that doing bad, just curious. @Valhalla That kind of rhymes with my experiences, those hidden stats. Well..everyone watching Balotelli play knows it's true.
  10. Poacher might work, I give it a try. Balotelli has really low Team Work and "attitude", but some I recall from past have used him for some effect.
  11. First, apologies to not use forum search effectively. 1. I like to use AssMan to give Opposition Instructions and Team Talk. My suspicion is that high Tactics and Man Motivation are needed? But any other things as it comes to that? 2. Balotelli...I play attacking 4-1-2-3 DM and I cannot get him to perform at all... I don't use any player specific stuff. Only instructions for team I have are Work ball into Box and Stay on Feet. Here is the image of tactic: http://i232.photobucket.com/albums/ee102/Sardaukar67/2015-10-22_00002_zpsrid7dxo4.jpg Any idea how to make Balotelli to perform in that, since Sturridge/Sterling/Coutinho have been lethal without any tinkering. Does he need player-specific instructions, since I have given none to any so far? Edited: Maybe playing him as Target Man instead of Advance Forward?
  12. Started with Detroit and 4 games to regular season (plus pre-season), still unbeaten despite having AI to handle tactics & training. Looks good. I'd like some more suggestions from e.g. Head Coach if team needs strengthening in some area. And maybe some more FM-style interactions with staff and players. While familiar with ice hockey, drafts, waivers, salary caps etc....are bit more alien to Europeans, so it takes some time to get used to them. And general difficulty to trade players compared to FM.
  13. Sounds good. When playing with 1 striker, that guy basically needs to be quite slippery. (Unless some huge Target Man etc...but I never got that to really work)
