  1. so i just finished my first season, and jong ajax has promoted. which should not be possible
  2. how come player value is not comparable to real world? for instance, with a few ajax players?
  3. this makes no sense at all, this has been bugging me for a the last few releases. clubs that dont "need" to sell their (best) players. but still sell for peanuts. there should be more "love" for the club, and team their playing at.
  4. can you show me the transferhistory of Ajax ? those last 4 seasons
  5. first season with Ajax 2 offers for a takeover - first one didn't come through. - second one, has. i got an email the new owner wanted to invest 65 mil to the transferbudget, but once finalized only recieved 1.5 mil transferbudget extra Veltman is supposed to be injured nearly every 1st team player comes asking for new contracts (they already have contracts running until 2021 or 2022) the marketvalue of some players is strange recently for instance, matthijs de Ligt and frenkie de jong have been linked with moves to barca, city and what not for prices between 50 and 80 mil ziyech wants to move to a bigger club just after the transferwindow closes?
  6. i;ve noticed (and maybe it's the match engine or another FM18 issue) when i set my Full backs on Attack, support or any other than defend or automatic, there is no cover at all on the flanks. and the opposition wingers seem to have flawless crossing when my players cross either the ball rolls near post, and the GK can pick it up, or it is shot in a 45 degree angle behind for a goalkick. (crossing is terrible in FM18)
  7. So I've started a new game after testing out some tactics with a previous save. I've started a Possession based 4-2-3-1 there are no shouts except for: Possession Short passing Offside trap Low pace Depending on the opposition either exploit the center, or the wings. started with cleaning up the team a bit, sold Elneny and Sanchez(since you can't offer him a new contract) . bought Kasper Dolberg, Mathijs de Ligt and Thomas Lemar. what i want to create is: slow paced possession build from the back creativity clever trough balls I've let the assistant handle the friendly matches because i want players to get fit. and not focusing on tactics. i've played a few games now; (watched them all extended) Chelsea community shield. Neutral p0-0 win (they played without Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez) Bournemouth Away 2-2 (played deeper, defending wingbacks because of the fast paced counters they play) Liverpool Home 3-1 ( fantastic game, possession wise, chances created, and defending) Manchester United Away 1-2 (this was a Stalemate although they hardly created any real chances, finally score the 1-0, Pogba gets a red card in the 60th minute, they score the equalizer from a killer [blind] pass, in the 94th minute Giroud shoots, hits the aluminium, the ball rolls against De Gea, into the goal 2-1) Chelsea PL Home 0-1 (Alexis Scored a rebound goal) (we have the majority of possession, Chelsea get hardly any chance. their leftback (i think it was Azpilicueta) gets a second yellow. but we can't seem to turn the game around. Buducnost Home 2-0 i played a complete B-squad (we had 65% possession, 30 shots far to few CCC's, first goal came from a direct free kick in de 70th minute or so (thanks Lemar) (worrying, but playing a very small league club so understandably they park the bus) Southampton Away 0-0 (this is where is started to notice the problem, because i play slow paced possession football, there is great build-up from the back. but no real chances. the wingers either throw the ball terribly in the box, or go inside (as IF) and get stopped by the wall of defenders) parts of what i want to see works the ball is distributed to the the center back or the wing backs, they build up to the midfielders, to the Advanced play maker or wingers, into the box and either a chance is created or it is defended. the opposition either plays a long ball which is defended by the center back and picked up by the midfielders or striker/winger. then the build-up starts all over again. i have the striker and wingers to press more same with the ball winning midfielder the center backs don't press much and don't close down (i don't want fast strikers or wingers break on a deep ball i play with a offside trap the full backs are one defense because I've noticed the wings to be weak (I've noticed way too many goals come from low crosses into the box to the near post) most touches and combinations go between Ozil and Ramsey / Xhaka what i want to achieve is, just like the actual Arsenal is to play slow paced, possession football, with trough balls around the opposition box. but now there is too much played to the wingers that either go wide (Winger support) or go inside, and run with the ball (IF support/attack) i want them to take time and look for better passing options or, play back and shift the play to the other side of the field. please let me know if i need to give additional information! the general setup is: So I've been tweaking my tactics a bit. to get a bit more depth and dare in the game the first match was against a Sky bet 1 team so a good opportunity to try it out a simple 4-0 victory with some B-squad players. although I'm not happy about the possession % The next match was a great test to tweak some more a Home game versus West Ham as you can see they have had a great run. time to end it. I watched the whole match again and did some on the go tweaking. tighter marking on Sakho and Obiang. the first 2 goals came from corners so that's not all tactics. during the second half, I switched the wingers back and put Lemar as a Raumdauter since Zabaleta was winning every duel. i changed Ozil back to a playmaker role instead of Trequerista, and Ramsey to Box to Box midfielder West Ham created nearly nothing, and most of West Ham's attacking situations we're created from own mistakes or loose balls Seems like the tactics are coming together now, except for the following problem; I seem to own home games, and mid-tier away games.. but I could use some help tweaking for teams parking the bus. playing 5-2-2-1 or 4-4-1-1 any suggestions are welcome
  8. I'd like to know if i should keep updating this post. so leave a comment
