  1. Knap, just wanted to say thanks for creating all these tactics. I'm in my 9th season with Cagliari and have won 4 of the last 5 Serie A titles, plus a 2nd and 3rd place in other seasons. I've won 6 of the last 7 Coppa Italias, and am the reigning Champions League holders. I'm in January of 2029, and we've lost just 1 league match since May 2026 - we're on course for our 2nd unbeaten season in 3, albeit I'm not counting chickens just yet! I've been using the Parisienne Walkways tactic for years now, and match after match after match it generates an overwhelming volume of chances that the o
  2. Thanks, @Luke Hume, I'd moved on from that point before I saw your reply, but it's happened in my most recent match and am sending a PKM and pre-match save as requested - the match is 'Milan v Cagliari' with a 93rd minute equaliser for Milan, the save file includes 'Cagliari (v02)'.
  3. Not sure if the edits have been reviewed - just scored a 94th minute equaliser against Juventus which didn't show up on the highlights.
  4. I'm four seasons into a Serie A game with Cagliari. I'm aware that there are restrictions on signing non-EU players and have mostly avoided doing so, except for picking up one Uruguayan teenager to try and comply with Cagliari's preference for signing Uruguayan players. Approaching the new season he was the only player in my senior/U20/U18 squad with a nonEU tag. Mason Greenwood's contract was running out at ManU. Now, I'd tried to bring him in last summer on loan, but I'd hit the limit for nonEU players due to the Uruguayan. Greenwood went back to ManU and *cough* acquired Irish dual nat
  5. I find it to be a chore to try and get as much useful information on screen as possible when looking at things like the squad view, shortlist or player search window. Something that really doesn't help with this is how difficult it is to get columns to the size I want - and this is partly because some columns seem to have priority over others. For example, I'm playing in Italy where I can sign one non-EU player a season. It's therefore important to know if a player is an EU national or not, so in the player search I have that column enabled. But the title for that column, EU NATIONAL
  6. The only change I can think of is the Zebre/Brazilian teams name fix. I've just started a new season and conceded an equaliser in the 90th minute - again no highlight so the only thing I knew of it was seeing the final score. EDIT: And now a 94th minute winner for me in a match - although as I was clock watching due to being down to 10 men I did actually see the score tick over in this one! EDIT 2: 90+3 Juventus equaliser, no highlight. EDIT 3: 90+3 3rd goal for us in a 3-0 win, shown without issue. 90+4 equaliser in 2-2 draw with Lazio, no highlight. EDIT 4: 45+1 goal
  7. I play on the full game rather than touch. I play with Only Commentary, replays only for goals, max speed between highlights. Something I've noticed several times now is that goals scored during second half injury time aren't always shown in replays. Case in point, I've just drawn 1-1 with Juventus, playing as Cagliari, with their goal scored at 90+1 and no replay. I thought I'd got away with a great win - but in the time it took me to look from the text bar to the clock they scored and the match was over. This doesn't seem to happen every time with 90+ goals - I've scored or concede
  8. Just wanted to add my support for this tactic. Playing as Cagliari in Serie A, predicted a bottom-half finish, I only signed DR/MR Luca Vignali to add to the existing squad. We never had any particularly long winning streaks, but at the same time our worst runs were 2 defeats in a row, and a DLDD where the loss was to Juventus in the cup. We got revenge on Juve late on in the season, with overwhelmingly our best performance of the season coming in a 5-0 away win that was kickstarted by their referee panicking under a long throw and fumbling the ball into his own net, the only time I've ev
  9. I have every CM/FM going back to the original CM2, but depending on the version many of them no longer run on modern systems - I know FM06 doesn't run from CD due to outdated copy protection, for example, and I think a lot of the physical disc copies have similar issues. For an old-school fix 01/02 is available as freeware to download - not without its own bugs, sadly, but it'll play without needing any disc. I don't know if a direct link is allowed, but it should show up easily enough if you search for it.
  10. At their very best with this tactic/these tactics you'd expect the PF to get maybe 1 in 2 - I've played as Spurs for several seasons with Kane, Parrott and Haaland, and that's about the best I've got. It's the wingers who really get the goals in this tactic; Jarrod Bowen in my last season using 1.0.0 scored about 24 despite rotating heavily with Kingsley Coman. If I'd paid a little more attention I'd have played Bowen more and he'd have probably scored more, but I wasn't short of goals even with Coman misfiring.
  11. Another season update from my Spurs game, now in May 2027. Simply put, we won the League, Carabao Cup, FA Cup and Champions League - principally using v1.0.0. After so long in-game, starting with a strong Spurs squad, having had the fortune to get Sancho, Bowen, Coman and Foden for (relatively) cheap and with previous success meaning that there's money to spend when I need to, I could say that it's not down to the tactic. However, I played the opening couple of months using (your version number neatness is my version number confusion) one of the v1.2 tactics and it simply wasn't deli
  12. End of season update, having run the whole season from pre to post with v1.1 First up: Premier League champions - our second title in seven seasons, and at the end a comfortable victory as Man City took just 5 points from their last 5 games to finish 7 points off the pace, having led for 27 of the 33 rounds prior. Still, we took 40 points from our last 14 games - ultimately an irresistible run of form. We were top scorers with 102, and had the 3rd best defence with 30. We also added our final missing trophy as we claimed the FA Cup for the first time, beating Man City 3-0 in the fina
  13. A few thoughts on post-match team talks. I mainly use FuSS' pre/mid-match talks, for guidance: Defeat/draw with a bad performance - Aggressive, not good enough, we should have won that (tends to generate the 'locked in the dressing room' news item) Win with a poor performance against a smaller/weaker team - Assertive, bit of a let off Win with a poor performance against a comparable/bigger team - Calm, good win Win with a good performance (most/all players over 7.0) - Calm, happy with result and performance Win in a derby match/cup final - Passionate, good win/happy wi
