  1. Cheers, started the save with English dates which meant German pre season was nearly over so I guess that threw me a bit. Never had this problem before!
  2. Wasn't sure where to post this so possibly a stupid question: Am I doing something wrong with my training/coaches or is the REALLY slow tactical familiarity a bug? 13 weeks of tactical training and it's only just gone up to competent, and it's killing me in the league since A) my players are playing like strangers who've never seen a ball before & B) I'm almost certain the AI won't be having the same problem so I'm at a massive disadvantage Tactics coach is 3* which isn't terrible. I'm really at a loss at what to do.
  3. Yeah, my original thinking was that players of a lesser ability would possibly need more instructions in order to play in the way that I wanted them to. But I'll review what I'm doing and see if I can remove any of the unnecessary ones from my system. Thanks for your help too, this thread has been extremely useful!
  4. Thanks for the reply, Llama. I've taken on board your advice regarding the midfield three, I do quite like this setup, it's reasonably similar to one I used last season, except I had a False 9 leading the line. http://i205.photobucket.com/albums/bb109/paradoxtheory2007/2014-01-14_00001.jpg The CM has Get Further Forward as a PI, so I'm hoping that he'll try and get forward into good areas to support the front three, and maybe chip in with a goal or two. Incidentally, since I dropped Griffiths ( a bold move given his goals) I've found that my play has been generally improved, with a higher rate of chance creation, maybe this is because Sigurdarson is more naturally suited to both the role and the instructions he's been given. I'm still unsure how to get my IFs more involved in the game. I've taken Get Further Forward off their PIs because I found that they were effectively marking the opposition full backs and unable to find pockets of space, so instead I've told them to Roam, with the idea that together with the Roaming instructions for my CF (who also moves into channels) this will create a 'fluid' front 3 who will swap positions as much as the ME allows them to. Am I on the right track or being completely ridiculous?
  5. Well, this is definitely the most helpful page I've found so far. It's even inspired a long time lurker like myself to create an account. I'm currently playing a 4-1-2-2-1 formation with a Rigid Fluidity and Control as my default mentality. My side is set out as follows: Complete Forward (A) Inside Forward (S) Inside Forward (S) Adv Playmaker (A) DLP - (D) Regista - (S) CWB (A) CD (D) BPD (D) CWB (A) Sweeper Keeper – (D) Team Instructions: Retain Possession, Shorter Passing, Pass Into Space, Work Ball Into Box, Play Out Of Defence, Drill Crosses, Much Higher Defensive Line, Roam From Positions, Hassle Opponents, Tighter Marking, Offside Trap, Lower Tempo and finally, Be More Expressive. As you can probably tell, I'm wanting to implement a high pressure game without the ball, but control the game with the ball. Now I'll freely admit that playing with Wolves isn't the ideal option, simply because players at lower league level will struggle to be as effective as say, Barcelona or Bayern. The problem is that unlike those teams, I am relying exclusively on the goals of my CF (Griffiths, who has 12 in 11 so far) to be able to get anything more than a 0-0 draw out of games at home, and I'm having to play on the Counter away from home in order to keep the defence as tight as possible. so, my question is this, how can I improve upon the above, keeping in mind my ideal philosophy and the quality of players I have to work with? I realise this is a little bit of a long winded post, so take your time Thanks!
