  1. This was a great read! Can't wait for your FM22 Thread.... I am messing around in the Beta..... 3 at the back might become a thing.....
  2. I agree with larger squads myself. I often carry 27-28 players so I can always field a full 23! Just to make sure I have cover for injuries. The last 5-8 are usually U-21's that spend most of their time playing in the Reserves, but training with the main team and getting the occasional game.
  3. Great work! You are ahead of what I consider "Championship/Promotion" Pace of 2.0 pts/match You are right that the Plymouth match will be big, but maybe you set your sights on 115 points! That would be 2.5 pts/match There are 16 matches in your season and if you just keep up with 2.0 pts/match for the rest of the season you would make 108 points. Try to find out the League record and shoot for breaking it!
  4. FA Cup runs are the things dreams are made of, for lower league teams in England, especially when you play Manchester United!
  5. Fireworks and explosions with a voiceover often do it on TV commercials? Unless it is some scantily clad "eye candy".....which Mrs. Verdi might not approve of.....
  6. Why would an Opera guy want to play "Rammstein" Style Heavy-Metal? In my current save, (Fleetwood Town League One, England), I press and play possession using a Vertical-Tiki Taka template as the basis.....also I ask to defend narrow and use OI's to "Zonally Press" most players on the other team. And the media always complain about my "Possession Heavy Style" that plays out of the back, but the Board is happy with our pressing as well. We may lack penetration and clinical attacking ability, but our opponents can't win if they don't have the ball! Also your wife is right.....Happy Wife= Happy Life!
  7. Good Work! English saves are always fun...if for no other reason is I that can pronounce most of the players names! I'm playing a last save in England also I started a little higher up the ladder though, Fleetwood Town. It was also homage to my very first save....when I knew nothing about Football or FM! Are you excited about the Datapak coming in FM22?
  8. Wow, What a preview! Now I am hoping for an Italian "Ride of the Valkyries" from Verdi and Livorno. Good Luck with a improved team!
  9. Watch out for the second half slump as reputation catches up with you and AI doesn't give you space behind!
  10. I say try for European Place or the league for one last season and then take a brake before FM22 comes out. You were so close....
  11. The Coupe de France seems to be this team's specialty.
  12. You will be a powerhouse in no time with the upgrades!
  13. Hello everyone I am still playing FM and am enjoying playing with Fleetwood Town in League One. I might even make it a career update next summer. Undoing the damage that Joey Barton caused! The Team is well setup for a youth only run with a board that wants you to sign players UNDER 22 Years Old! I am currently overachieving with a Sunday rep coach because I am playing a 4-2-3-1 Wide that suits the squad. I just thought people might want to try them in FM '22.
  14. Great Job! I knew you would do it! You have about 4 weeks to finish off your checklist of achievements.....Wide Center backs are calling!
  15. Wow! what a battle for the title! I might not of shutdown my CPU and FM just to keep the streak alive.....lol!
  16. Yes, I always fear turning off and saving FM.....because you usually start a losing or draw streak after shutting off on a winning streak.
  17. You have 6 weeks....and other than winning Serie A with Livorno. You have probably met most of your objectives at start.
  18. I haven't checked the clip, but those improvements would make my life as a FM'er much easier. Since I use scout rating to initially judge prospects and then eyeball the attributes before signing, It would make my "anti-analytics" campaign easier even though it would use analytics! Lol! Also it would be great if they had scroll over explanations of what the data was you are seeing is without having to watch the induction again ... I also believe you are right that the new features will benefit yourself and other players like you.
  19. That was the idea.....except the fans are sing in L-I-V-O-R-N-O we love you! After a couple of "adult" beverages! KUTGW!
  20. @13th Man What? You mean I shouldn’t blame the ME for every loss? Next you’re going to be saying I need to take responsibility for my own actions!!! I always blame the AI not the ME.......it is always the AI is some Relegation fodder that looks like "Chelsea" against me while having (insert greatest gk of the moment) between the sticks! Like @SixPointer said the ME works fine.....I just think the AI cheats.....lol! It is never my tactics that I make subtle tweaks to.....that work great for other forum users (SixPointer, Rashidi, and others)!
  21. This is all I have to say: "Don't Stop Believin'" Journey (1981) Just a small-town girl Livin' in a lonely world She took the midnight train goin' anywhere Just a city boy Born and raised in South Detroit He took the midnight train goin' anywhere A singer in a smokey room The smell of wine and cheap perfume For a smile they can share the night It goes on and on, and on, and on Strangers waiting Up and down the boulevard Their shadows searching in the night Streetlights people Livin' just to find emotion Hidin' somewhere in the night Workin' hard to get my fill Everybody wants a thrill Payin' anything to roll the dice just one more time Some will win, some will lose Some were born to sing the blues Oh, the movie never ends It goes on and on, and on, and on Strangers waiting Up and down the boulevard Their shadows searching in the night Streetlights people Livin' just to find emotion Hidin' somewhere in the night Don't stop believin' Hold on to that feelin' Streetlight people Don't stop believin' Hold on Streetlight people Don't stop believin' Hold on to that feelin' Streetlight people
  22. I "think" that is why the AF role is/was so effective in many of my tactics? It gave the playmaker space and an option. Also it helped that I absolutely love Pace! (15+ especially) because that threat of the long ball really scares AI eventually, but I think that this tactical style can breakdown deep sitting defenses.
