  1. My facepacks stopped working after the newest update. They worked fine for years and never had any problems, but all of sudden the faces stopped showing up. I tried to untick cache, changed the config file, rename the folders. Nothing.


    Anyone knows how can I make it back?

     So if you give me a little while I can write about my system which is a lot like yours and explain how the roles all synergise together and the possible issues there might be and how to fix them. But I've also wrote about this before too, so maybe you can find something in there that is helpful now more short-term while I write the new stuff. You can check out all the bits here;

    Can't wait. Its like an early christmas gift! :hammer:

    On a rare visit - totally agree. @Ö-zil to the Arsenal! your articles give me lots of food for thought and ideas. I'm not normally short of a balanced and sensible system, but the systems I have used, inspired by your ideas on here has helped me to 9 league titles, a champions league, countless domestic cups, a world club cup, nations league, euros, world cup in a glittering 15 year career. I love learning from what other people do.

    Do you play FM20? Would love to see more interpretations coming from FM20, because most people have a success with this type of football on previous FM's.

  4. Full backs are definitely more attacking. I'd say Digne is a WB with attack duty with Bernard in front of him coming inside (AP?) and Sidibe is more supporting role and he often underlaps Walcott, so maybe WB or even CWB.


    I like your centre midfield pairing, as they're really reserved under Carlo as Everton don't have any ball carrier right now. It will be interesting how he'll use Gomes once he's back.


    His setup is interesting, but I think it's a very big work in progress and it we'll be very different with a right personel at his disposal.

  5. Is there anyone from followers who's playing FM 19? I'm obviously very impressed by the work of @Ö-zil to the Arsenal! and I wonder how can "very fluid" style of football (it's author's trademark after all :cool:) be emulated in this year's version of the game. 


    Is it just about the freedom we give to our players, is it compactness or maybe it's just roles? Would love to see O-zil's ideas implemented in FM19 :) 

  6. Wonderful thread.


    One thing I'm struggling with this year is how to make a lone striker effective. It drives me mad seeing his ratings 6.5 or lower and sadly it happens too often. I have a great team and goals are well spread but my strikers never scored more than 15 league goals. How's your doing @Cleon? Wonder if it's something I'm doing wrong or should I accept my lone striker is there to make a space for wide players and provide support rather than being lethal goalscorer.


    Just my weird fetish as I love my central striker to be a top scorer, but I can't get it to work like that.

    Whilst this is indeed an area of the match engine SI are working on to improve, it's very far from being an issue that stops a lone striker contributing nothing and having no movement.

    I believe you, but it's a damn hard for me to make a tactic with a working striker in a role different than advanced forward. Whenever I tried another role for him, he gets like 5 goals a season and 6.5 rating at best. I know I shouldn't focus on one role in a tactic, but I experimented a lot and nothing seems to work. It shouldn't be that difficult.

    I've already told this to so many people, but unfortunately I'll have to repeat it once again - your setup of roles and duties is extremely one-dimensional. While that might not be much of an issue defensively, it clearly hinders your attacking potential. Btw, I assume you are Everton (based on a few players' names and blue shirts), which is a good team, but not a top one. The 4th position on the table is a very nice achievement (albeit it's only September 1, i.e. the beginning of the season). I don't know if you always use this tactic, or make tweaks depending on how tough a particular game/opponent is?

    I don’t have issues with results. Im set up to play posession football, but maybe you have point I should add some creativity and variety to the tactic. I just thought if I put creative player in an IF role, he’ll be the one to feed my CF and IF on the other side. Maybe I need some more penetration coming from the middle of the park as well. 

    Back to the drawing board for me I guess. 9 goals in 50 games for my strikers is just unacceptable.

  9. It's incrediblt frustrating. I'm using the same formation as OP and I'm fairly successfull but just can't get my striker to score. Last season it was understable because I had some very poor forwards (but still, one scored 7 and the other one just 1 goal whole season!), but I bought Dolberg and he scored 1 goal in 4 games - it was a penalty. 

    Sickening. I can't get anything to work :( It sucks out a joy of me.


    I don't have any issues with posession, results and a general play but this lack of goals from striker is killing me.

    I tried more creative roles on the left wing and attacking role for striker, but it didn't change anything.
