  1. Hi Everyone, does anyone know if its possible to get FM2017 to upload videos to youtube in a format other than .ogv as these videos will not play correctly on youtube or facebbook ? I'm using a Mac but not sure if that should affect anything
  2. A couple of questions on Affiliate clubs, I'm playing as Arsenal and set up a link with Barnet to send a few youngsters out on loan, firstly how many players can I send to them at a time and is there a minimum amount of time before the board will allow me to set up another link with a club, as I now want to set one up with a Championship club.
  3. Started a new fm save today after not playing it for a while been busy with other things, any thoughts on the below tactic as a starting point. Only played 1 game so far v my under 21's and found the same problem as I have had in the past the defence being far to high up the pitch due to having "push higher up" selected so have removed this going forward as I ended up giving away a silly goal becuase off to much space between defence and the gk. The only player instructions set so far are the gk, and the 2 CD's and 2 Cm's all on shorter passing and the AM on "get forward more". Just for a comparison I have posted a copy of my old Liverpool tatics below the new one, I found the old one caused a lot of problems with never really keeping the ball and giving away to many goals.
  4. What exactly is an inside forward and how does an inside forward differ from a standard winger.
  5. Hi everyone, couple of questions about transfer budgets. 1 - I have a transfer arranged for a future date for a player to join my team - fee is £1.5 million will this amount already have been taken off my budget when it was agreed or will it come off once the player actually comes to my club ? 2- Do clauses get added to my budget i.e. If I sell someone and get £500k once he plays 20 times for the club I sell him to will that cash end up in my budget and likewise if I buy someone and have to pay an amount after so many games does that come out of the transfer budget.
  6. I am being really thick here but how do I get into the tatics creator to make a new tactic from scratch, I go into my tatics screen and get this but when I click on create new tatic it just offers me a list of formations.
  7. My Chairman has agreed to allow me to take a coaching course so hopefully I can get a b licencee rather than my current c licence. However this was a couple of weeks ago and nothing has come up on my screen about the course other than an e-mail saying I was going to be starting the course. Does the course involve me doing anything game play wise or is it just a case of me being sent on it and that all. I was expecting it to be interactive in some way but that does not seem to be the case.
  8. Ok I will do - I just thought as it covers a coaching course it would come under a training matter sorry If I have asked in the wrong place.

  10. Because that topic was about my defence and this is about trying to keep the ball, I also have made changes based on that thread to help my defence for example putting both CD on defend and changing the role of the left central mid player. Also the point you raised in the first thread about the dline being deeper leaving a bigger gap between the defence and rest of the team is something I have taken on and don't ask the defence to drop deeper with the team instructions any longer. Sorry if I have got it wrong by starting another thread for what I viewed as another topic its just what normally happens on other forums I use so I assumed I should do the same here. I decided to go with a 4-2-3-1 formation after the ideas on this thread and also asked the keeper to pass to the CD's rather than take long kicks, and changed most of the team instructions, I ended up with 58% possession which just leave me with a question and that is how much possesion should a team get before they are considered to be playing possession football as this is one of the aims the board are asking of me and clearly the higher it is the better chance I have off doing well in games.
  11. I seem to be struggling to get my Liverpool team to play possession football no matter what I do at best I end up with around 45-55% possession in every game, I've tried the "retain possession" and "shorter passing" options but to no avail. The problem I find is my players just end up kicking or heading the ball into space or worse still a lot of the time towards an opposition player. Any suggestions please ? One thing I had been thinking is if adding a DM in between the defence and midfield might improve things by giving a link between the two lines but then I would have to play with one CF which I dont really want to do as both Lambert and Sturidge are at least playing well and getting a decent amount of goals between them. My current starting instructions and formation are show below.
  12. Ok I have read your thoughts and ideas been tweaking things a bit - changed the centeral mids to have 1 on defend and 1 on support and changed the 2 central defenders to both be on defend and both full backs on support, also tweaked the instructions a bit. Just beat Leicester 4-0 but still only 485 possession. I'm giving some thought to playing with either Gerrard as a DM - playing as deep lying play maker and having just 1 CF playing as a deep lieing forward. I'm going to see how the current set up works against stronger teams over the next couple of games then make my mind up.
  13. Having a few issues with my defence on FM15 playing with Liverpool. I'm scoring plenty of goals and getting between 45-55% possesion per game but often find I end up letting a couple of goals in most games as the 2 CD's end up far to high up the pitch and leave loads of space between them and the goalkeeper. I know with playing on control the defence line will be fairly high up the pitch but this is something I want to change - Is there an instruction I can give to the defenders in order to stop them pushing so high up that wont affect the rest of the team pushing forwards ? Secondly is it possible to set the defence up to pass the ball forward quickly to the 2 CM players with all 4 defenders set on to defence dutys, the reason I have the left back on attack and right back on support is to try and get the ball forward but while that does work again it causes gaps that are leading to goals against me. The only player instruction I currently use is to the keeper to take long kicks. In case anyone was wondering the players all seem worn out as the screenshots were taken straight after a match.
  14. This might sound a dumb question but what does it mean if a central defender has a cover duty ?
  15. Started a new game recently, gone for 4-1-2-2-1 total change of tatics (thanks bababooey for the suggestion of this formation), did well in freindlys and first prem game was against Everton 3-0 win finally I have won a leauge game, not played any more matches yet but a decent start just a bit worried about the 47% possesion but a 3-0 win is the main thing. Screenshot of new tatics below just hope it keeps working out now, plan is for Strurrige to play as right winger once Suarez is back from his ban.
