  1. So you can make four substitutions in the Carabao Cup now? Tactic must be good.
  2. Carabao Cup Thriller. Salah scored four before I saved his legs in the 60-ish minute. Here's my tactic, roughly...
  3. Well I played a season when the game was released. Tried to play a Klopp like tactic but Salah got injured (I take blame for that and plus I can't post screenies because computer broke and I'm just installing FM on someone else's now) but then as usual the AI seemed to get used to the tactic toward the latter end of the season. By the time I changed my tactic it was too late to reduce the deficit in the Champion League's quarter final but I won the league with 88 points irrc. The tactic I switched to is just a 4-3-2-1 universal approach with a focus on possession and creative freedom.
  4. Does anyone know how long it takes the board to allow you to request a feeder club after rejecting all their options? They didn't have a U.S team listed out of the four this time because of the Warriors affiliation, which I have now removed. I want to sign Christian Pulisic as my Coutinho replacement but don't want to initiate the transfer before I have a commercial link in the U.S, preferably with L.A Galaxy. Usually in my experience the board do not allow a feeder club to raise profiles in foreign countries but I'm playing with Pro's transfer update. I imagine that that it will be somethi
  5. Salah is banging them in left, right and centre since I switched to my new tactic. Was using an Very Fluid High Creativity tactic before which he was doing okay in. Now switched to flexible attacking.
  6. Only looking to sign bargains. Made an offer for Pepe Reina for £0 + exchange player (Mignolet), Strangely they wanted 3.6mil + Mignolet even though he is only worth under five million, Mignolet is worth 21mil and Pepe is 34 and Mignolet is 29 and Napoli wouldn't budge on the price. After giving up, a message appeared in my inbox saying that Reina faced an uncertain future at Napoli after a row with the manager about a dream move to Liverpool. So intrigued, I bid for him again (£0 + Mignolet) because I was still unwilling to pay an extortionate fee for a 34 year old player.
  7. 4-2DM-3-1 Control Inspired by the tactic Cleon created in his art of possession article. The roles, duties and formation are different, but the mentality and the team instructions happen to be the same. I thought attacking mentality would be over ambitious for my Liverpool side, so went with Control, like Cleon. In terms of the team instructions, I find leaving out work ball into box and shorting passing to be more logical for the way we want to play. I want my players to shoot, and throughout the season there were quite a good amount of long shots scored by my players as well. My co
  8. Origi scored in the first eleven seconds of my match against league leaders Arsenal. I was fully expecting to get a notification about this in my inbox that I had broke some kind of record in the Premier League for fastest goal ever, but to no avail. Robbie Fowler use to have the fastest goal ever, but in real life it was broken this season. By Mane, if I remember correctly? This is a goal by Winaldum, to complete his hattrick. I'd thought I'd upload it because he scored after dribbling from the halfway, after he tackled an opponent. Love it when attackers tackle and break
  9. Old scouser tommy: Thanks for the advice, I know it's early days yet with my latest tactic (IFA & WA) but I feel like I can beat anyone and possibly win the league next season with the right signings and management. Whatever I do, I always get hit at the back, at the moment it's Kevin Keegan antics, just trying to outscore the opposition. I haven't been able to play the same side over and over again with all the whinging and fixtures congestion. This tactic is based on the old Tactical Theorems and framework, accept it's nothing like Arsene or Klopp, it's just I struggle with tactics a
  10. My tactical development at Liverpool this season: Been playing FM since it's "first" release in 2005. Still a n00b. Things are going well though, after rocky start to season where I tried four different tactics to no avail, until finally landing on one that can lead this club to glory. In the back of mind, I was planning on using this FM2017 to find the right tactic then start a fresh a new game when I purchase the full game. However, it's a bit like cheating though ain't it, and I ain't doing so bad so I guess I'm going to stick this save game file out. Let me go thr
  11. Thanks herne79, I will post some screenshots as soon as possible. Played one game since posting, lost 3-1 to Chelsea in the FA cup fourth round. Going to train team cohesion on high now to see if I can turn results around, as their has been a lot of business in the transfer window. Also, playing a semi fit Ings in fourth because he asked for first team football seemed to be a mistake.
  12. Right, I'll avoid posting endless seems of screenshots about my tactic I created for Football Manager 2016. First off, I haven't played Football Manager 2016 for a certain period of time now, but I thought seeing as I'm intent on playing again, I may as well share this tactic, a tactic I hope I can rework when FM2017 comes out. The tactic follows a pretty basic setup but at the same times goes against a lot of WWfan said in his groundbreaking posts about Structure and Fluidity. In older versions of FM, the idea was to give your team the most high amount of creativity and see what
  13. Hi all, quick question, is it possible to delete save game files on FM2016? I don't believe uninstalling/reinstalling will fix the issue because I've played football manager on mobile 2014/15...Is it simply a matter of overwriting this with new save game files? I have four save game files.
