  1. hey, i want to start this challenge: Sir Alex Furguson Challenge the problem is, how do i pick a team after going on holiday? do i do that by adding a new manager? this is probably a pretty stupid question but its bugging me
  2. hey, i want to start the alex ferguson challenge but i can't find out how to pick a team after simulating until the 6 of november. can you help me out here?
  3. GK - D FB - S CD - C CD - S CWB - A DLP - S (Sometime I use a Regista) WM - A BBM - S AP - A W - S DF - S its from left to right!
  4. I played two seasons now in the Bundesliga. It always ends in a Head2Head with Bayern. First season i did the double with DFB-Pokal and Bundesliga only losing to Barcelona in the CL-Final. Second Season Bayern ate everything, beat me in the DFB-Pokal final (lucky penalty in the 90th minute), set up a goalscoring record in the bundesliga with 108 goals scored, but lost the CL-Final to ManU with 4-1. Season 2014/15: Season 2015/16: I play an attacking/fluid 4-1-4-1 PI's: GK: Pass It Shorter; Fewer Risky Passes LV: - IVL: Close Down Less IVR: Close Down Less RV: - DM: - LM: Shoot Less Often, Run Wide With Ball CML: Shoot Less Often CMR: - RM: Shoot Less Often ST: Shoot Less Often, Close Down Much More And here is my question: What can I do, to score more or to be more efficient with scoring opportunities? We tend to waste a hole lot of chances. We often have over 30 Shots (around 10-15 SoT) but then end up winning maybe 1:0/2:0. I tried to reduce senseless/longshots with TI's/PI's but it didn't get much better. Robert Lewandowski scored 44 goals for Bayern in 34 league-games, i really need to beat that record next season or my self-esteem will start to crumble ... maybe you guys have some useful ideas for me!
  5. hm i don't really have that issue, i do get a few cards but only one red in the first 19 games and my lb and my hb missed one match due to 5 yellows but thats all. so first half of the season is over and this is the league table: can't quite believe it. i did a lot of in game changes when it didn't go the way i want mostly i switch TI's but i only add one or two of the following. and when im trailing i sometimes switch to attacking. + exploite middle/flanks + shorter passing + look for overlap + retain poss + push higher
  6. i guess its possible, i got a f9 with two aml/amr on w(a). in 15 games he scored 8 and assisted 6. here are his attributes: he is far away from being a top player in the league but i guess the mentals vision, teamwork, work rate and decisions are extremely important for a f9.
  7. This is probably the best run i ever had on FM so far. I just started a season with union berlin (2. bundesliga - predicted to end up in the middle of the table) on my new fm15 and after fooling around a little in pre season i managed to come up with this little drawing on my way to work: The idea behind this is pretty simple i guess. I wanted a front wide front three, the squad does have the material for that and i wanted the main goal scoring thread coming from the two wide players and my BTB midfielder. the false 9 was planned as the main supplier where as the AP(S) and the HB should work mainly as possession keeper. as you see in the little drawing above there are a lot of triangles and the HB and the AP do a good job in creating those all over the pitch. why the IWB? well i only had a right foot as LB at the beginning of the season and then there is the BTB midfielder in front of him. so instead of losing a triangle when the BTB pushes forward or increasing the size of the triangle do to a wide player (WB or alike) the IWB just jumps in the gab the BTB opens and we got our essential triangle back. So here is the league table after 12 games: Some playerstats: Its really good to see how the ideas actually work, as in my false 9 being the guy playing the most through balls on to my wingers. with the btb always pushing up high and offering a further option in the box, whilst the other two central midfielders protect the shape and offer options for a short possession keeping pass. The details about this setup: GK - pass shorter, fewer risky passes CB's - close down less HB - pass it shorter, fewer risky passes i have not tested this with any other team, maybe i am just lucky but for now this is really doing the job! so after this run, i just wanted to share this you guys. maybe it helps someone or maybe i get some input on how to improve this even further. who knows.
  8. so now there is a new problem coming up my wide AM's misinterpret the pressing and run at the wrong space when the ball is on the other side of the pitch, here an example: as you see, we bringt good pressure on the ball, there is actually no option but to play back to the goalkeeper, we even got the man on the ball running backwards, so he can't even hit a long ball up so far so good, but look at my AMR, what is he doing there? and this gets even worst as you see, the man on the ball turned in his despite and what does he see, soooo much uncovered space. he switches the ball and takes out 4 of my players with a simple pass. this could never happen if my AMR was IN position and focusted on closing down a player rather then enjoying the green tress near the penalty box. this is the set up used and the AMR only got the PI shoot less often but this issue appears on both sides, always when the ball is on the other side of the pitch the wingers start wondering around. could it be any instructions i use?
  9. first impression of a new approach i now lined up like this: and played werder bremen at home, they used a 4-4-1-1 with wide winger a deep MCR and more of an AP(s) i would guess on the AM position. the avarge position looks good, very high up the pitch but why is the CDR with © higher then the CDL with (s)? here is where we tackled: here is where we won/intercepted the ball: same for bremen: i really liked the way my two BWM attacked the second ball, both of them secured possession really often that look good already, when kehl went off and gündogan came on i switched the role to DLP(s) it did work as well. so i guess this is a set up to build on
  10. ok using two DF's works so far, when there is no opposition DM involved, with a DM we have a huge problem picking him up. i was hoping for the DF(d) to take the responsibility for him but i guess this only works with 'mark specific player'. issue two, you said i should push up my two wingers but then i lose the 4-4-2 i am looking for, i want them to operate from deep when building up play, i also want them deep in a 4-4-2 shape when the opposition managed to build up play and is in our half. as i read so far i just can't have both, either its heavy and high pressing or it is compact 4-4-2 against the ball. but it can't be heavy pressing high up but compact and narrow 4-4-2 when deep down? using the CM's to close down the space for the opposition DM. this part is where pressing works or it doesn't, and so far it does not work. next try will be 2 BWM (d/s) this is risky but lets see, maybe it brings the effect i want
  11. Hello inspired by Atleticos game of the last season but especially by the way Borussia Dortmund overran Arsenal on Tuesday I am working on a high pressing 4-4-2 with not quite the success i was hoping for. my set up is as simple as it get's GK(D) FB(A)-CD(D)-CD(D)-FB(S) WM(A)-CM(D)-CM(S)-WM(S) AF(A)-DF(S) Mentality: Attacking Fluidity: Very Fluid TI: Hassle Opponents Stay On Feet PI: FB's: Close Down Less (i would be to unorganized on the wings if these two gave up the position too much) Thats it for now so not quite the instructions we saw on tuesday for dortmund. Looking at the way dortmund played against Arsenal then i probably would have to add TI: Go Route One Pass Into Space PI: FBL: Run Wide With Ball FBR: Cut Inside, Dribble More Both MC: Shorter Passes, Less Risky Passes MR: Roam From Position, Cut Inside, Sit Narrow ML: Sit Narrow, Cross From Byline Both ST: Run Wide With Ball But for now i want to keep it simple So now the Problem with the 4-4-2 and the Pressing #1: My Strikers do what i want them to do, even though the AF is a bit lazy and i am considering playing 2 DF, one on support one on defend #2: My wingers don't do what they should at all, no pressure on the FB's, they just look for the opposition WM. They Only put Pressure up with "Mark Specific Player" this does not change even with DW. Any Suggestions? #3: My CM are a huge Issue, they don't close down high enough. The opposition has too much space behind my Strikers and their central midfielders can easily pick up passes out of the defense, turn and build up play without pressure. I didn't not try two BWM (I am a bit afraid i will lose my structure then ) So these three points are troubling the most, hopefully there are some thought on how to close down the center better because every time my ST get the pressure high enough for a long clearance my CD's win the ball and thats just what Im looking for
  12. Of course there will be wage raises when new contracts are made but i will never add the yearly wage raises percentage to those contracts. Maybe that was a bit unclear First season is played now i hope i find some time soon to start with the inside tactic analisis and the generell updates
