  1. I've tried both, the DWs don't play too differently to WMs. The HB doesn't perform like it does with a 4 at the back system either
  2. I hate it so much. In friendlies I've tried playing very high up to try and avoid the issue of the space in behind the full backs bu we're susceptible to long diagonals in behind. I've trialled playing very deep as well to compress the space but still the wide players don't pick up opposition wingers - I'll have to try the WMs on defend
  3. PF-A/S IW-A* RPM Mez-A WM-A** DM-D WB-S** BPD-D CD-D WB-A** SK-D Is what I'd say is how we played Saturday. * Stay wide ** roam from position Vardy (or any striker with it it) is frustrating of FM because of his tries to beat the offside trap trait, his positioning is too high up regardless of role
  4. I had that on one of these challenges previously, I don't mind using that but would prefer a different one
  5. Is it suitable for mac? My preferences screen says my resolution is 1280 x 800, tbh I've never really understood or learned about screenresolution
  6. When/if you finally win the league I think it will be the most well deserved top flight win I will have seen on these forums
  7. It's not appearing in the skin drop down on the preferences page for me.
  8. I got 15 points with Burton in the Championship once
  9. Have you considered all Channel Islanders or is it Guernsey only?
  10. You’re playing very wide with a combination of relatively (for the mentality) short and slow passes. I don’t think all of those instructions are conducive to good link up between players
  11. In game editor on a new save after the update. Yeah I’d forgotten that it would have been the WBA editor. Otherwise spot on
  12. Harvey Barnes' PA is only ? It should be significantly higher imo, I appreciate he's not played many games for us but his promise with WBA was very obvious. On the other hand I'd say Choudhury with the same PA figure is too generous. Again caveatted by relatively few minutes but he looks a bit limited to me, very decent ball winner but lacking in other areas.
  13. I've just had my most successful season (probably the only full season I've completed tbh) by getting Bochum promoted as 2. Bundesliga champions but it was an absolute chore. Despite having one of the better technical sides in the division I ended up 1-0ing my way to the title through set pieces and my striker converting a a very difficult chance or spring from a corner every other game. The shot volume from both sides was poor and I didn't concede many open play goals either despite having defensively mediocre fullbacks. My general observations are (I've not read this thread at all this FM iirc): Poor crossing locations and decisions (notably running into the opposition defender before crossing) Lack of forward movement from CMs The understanding of space is frustrating from players Not enough penetrative passing The positive is that defending is much more realistic and it looks more like professional football more often than previous additions but at the cost of enjoyment on my part.
  14. You have a lot of instructions, there's far too many to be able to explain exactly what they do with your system and how they interact with each other
  15. I agree they'll be our main in rivals in years to come because of Forest and Derby's promotion allergy and they're already challenging for 7th too but it's slightly too high in my opinion (and you're more than welcome to disagree, obviously!). Writing this out I've now realised that to;s probably fine as it is actually
  16. December 2018/19 We've signed Tom Bayliss, he's not going to play much yet (if it all tbh) but Mendy is off to Palace whilst Silva and Iborra are both ageing.
  17. November & December 2018/19 I don't know what to do, the life has drained out of me and the squad, there's no movement or vibrancy despite me watching games on full mostly. I think I'll have to change formation rather than tweaking mentality and instructions because it's just not happening. I can't argue with that.
  18. I think Spurs is a weird one, personally there's other teams I dislike more than them - I could perhaps understand the bitterness from some sections of our support if they'd pipped us to the title but they didn't but appreciate generally our fans dislike them. I'd say Birmingham City (as an example rather than a specific team) are about the same level as Northampton (if not more of a game I'd look forward to), a local game but not really a rivalry. I don't think I've ever met a Cobblers fan. Peterborough is probably fair enough as it is, its very much one sided but its nice to get one over them. Stoke, I agree there's a bit of needle there and about right. I'd say most Leicester fans I know ( another caveat I know) don't mind them at all. Wolves rivalry rating is too high imo, there's a bit of history with Walsh & Bull, MacGhee etc and we're similar sides now but again I think most of our fan base don't really care
  19. @tomlcfc I think some of our rivalries could do with being reviewed. Portsmouth for example developed through being similarly placed sides in the 90s but there's no rivalry to speak of now. Northampton and Notts County aren't rivalries they're just local and we never play them anyway unless it's a friendly.
  20. October 2018/19 Kettering are in the same division as Coalville and Barwell, I wanted one of them
