  1. England really needs to up the tempo. But on the other hand a draw is fine for them.
  2. Pretty awful first half, better second half from Sweden. Pretty impressive that it's so hard to score against us considering what players we actually have - a back four of Lustig, Danielsson, Lindelöf and Augustinsson isn't exactly awe inspiring. But I guess the tightly organised non-adventurous midfield helps. Will be very surprised if we make it past the first round after the group stage though.
  3. Classic Sweden. Defensive sub when at 0-0 vs a better team. Frustrating.
  4. Has anyone else come across this weird thing I just noticed? My centre back pairing have the best average ratings in the whole team (7.11 and 7.19 respectively), but the tactics screen says that they have a poor partnership and have played poorly when paired together? That seems counterintuitive as they've played almost every match together and have the highest average ratings in the team. Bug or poorly implemented calculation of average ratings for central defenders? We have shipped quite a few goals this season.
  5. Since you're going to be much better at squad building than the AI, the key is to use that to your advantage. Focus on building a strong central backbone (GK, DC, MC, SC) and above all tailor your tactics after your resources. No point playing tiki-taka if your players are non-league material. What worked for me this year was finding a really rapid striker, pair him with the tallest striker you can find, play 4-4-2 somewhat direct and abuse the pace 4 defenders you'll find in the Conference. If you can find one MC with decent passing attributes that helps as well - set him as the playmaker and
  6. 95th minute of the attached PKM. Forest gets a counter attack after a corner, look at the leftmost defender of Dulwich Hamlet. For no reason at all he decides to sprint to the right to mark a player who is in a much less dangerous position than the ball carrier who he was previously marking. Ball carrier gets a free run at goal because of this. Mental mistakes do happen but this looks way too unrealistic to be a normal mistake. Nottm Forest v Dulwich Hamlet.pkm
  7. By its very nature a computer simulation of a footballer has to rely on randomization. In essence it works as an RPG - in a given situation, how does the game decide whether a midfielder spots the late run of an opposing player into the penalty area and if that player is hard-working enough and tactically astute enough to track that run? It depends on attributes of course, but by necessity it also includes random chance into the equation. How does the game decide whether a shot is on target or not? Attributes + external factors + random chance.
  8. Dulwich Hamlet was my choice. London-based (high city attractiveness), lovely pink and blue kit
  9. This has never happened to be before in a CM/FM game, in all my years of playing. Thought I'd share it. The goalscorer is a DC in a 4-4-2. Awesome.
  10. Absolutely. The ref would have whistled for a free kick for the defending team the moment the ball hit the penalty taker on the rebound.
  11. I find that comparing your first squad to the rest of your current division can be a first step towards finding out what style fits. Midfielders on average worse than the league average in passing, decisions, technical? Probably not a good idea to try and dominate possession. Just look under Team Report -> Comparison or whatever the menu choice is called.

  13. One of the youtube videos from earlier claimed that you could give central defenders a Libero instruction. That instruction is missing for me. Also, at one time I could not set my DL to Fullback instruction - when I left the screen and came back the Fullback option became available.
