  1. Hi, I am having a similar issue, load Steam & click Play on FM20, shows the 'preparing to launch' screen & then the FM20 Sports Interactive logo but then FM20 & Steam both close/crash. I have checked that Steam is updated, I have deleted the Caches & Preferences folders for FM20 & I've even attempted to load FM20 in "-windowed" mode but still crashing. Any further help would be great. Matt
  2. Hi all, Hope everyone is good. I'm currently managing Villa in the 2020/2021 season & in 5th place, won the championship in my first season & finished 5th my first season back in the prem. I have been using a 4-1-2-2-1 tactic with a DLP in the DM role & two Inside Forwards, however I feel like I'm not using my players to the best of their potential as I'm pretty terrible at analysing players & squads. If anyone could have a look at my team & suggest the best tactic or any ideas would be great. Thank Swin
  3. Cheers Gareth. Just had my first youth intake & its not exactly great. I've only upgraded my Junior Coaching & its currently 'average'. My Youth Recruitment however is 'fairly basic', so going to give the tip from officiallydeej a go to see if I can improve this.
  4. Hi guys, Reading through this thread & it inspired me to give it a go. Currently top with 9 games left in my first season using a variation of your 4-1-3-2 Mr Rosler, that you posted a screenshot of in the initial post, also using Franky's Hustler tactic when I want to go on the offensive. I signed a few players that had been with the club previously & one of those guys, Shawn McCoulsky is just banging the goals in, 23 in the league thus far. I did sign a player, Kevin Amankwaah, who had no history with Dulwich but I signed him as a scout & he hasn't played any games for the first team. Matt
  5. GeesusChrist; try searching for "Attacking 4-2-3-1 Pressing" in the FM15 workshop on steam... My name on steam is Greywolf_79
  6. That's odd, it was fine yesterday... I'll have a look Thank you for letting me know Aleynasdad
  7. Cheers Stuart, I'll give your changes a go... Just checked my stats & my striker has scored 2 in the last 10 games! My goals mainly come from my Raumdeuter & attacking midfielder and my team are the highest scores in all 4 divisions with 40 goals in 17 games... Matt
  8. try this & let me know what you think... http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/405516-Fm15-attacking-4-2-3-1-wide-gegenpressing Just change tempo to "Much Higher" from "Much Lower'...
  9. I've changed the tempo from "Much Lower' to "Much Higher" and that seems to be having a better effect re the whole gegenpressing philosophy... Plus its certainly helping me get the wins!
  10. Hi guys, just uploaded the following tactic to the Steam Workshop for you to check out / improve! I've been reading about gegenpressing & this is my attempt at that high defensive line, high pressing tactic. Mentality - Attacking Team Shape - Highly Structured Team Instructions: *More Direct Passing *Shoot On Sight *Play Narrower *Be More Expressive *Roam From Positions *Much Higher Defensive Line *Lower Tempo *Close Down Much More So far, working pretty well with Portsmouth in League Two however I've found that my team may score a few goals but I'm also conceded a few aswell, kinda like a Kevin Keegan tactic (gonna score more than the other team). The roles & individual player instructions are as follows: GK - Defend - Pass it Shorter DR - Wing Back - Attack - Run Wide With Ball - Stay Wider DCR - Defend DCL - Defend DL - Wing Back - Attack - Run Wide With Ball - Stay Wider MCR - Advanced Playmaker - Support MCL - Ball Winning Midfielder AMR - Raumdeuter - Close Down More AMC - Attacking Midfielder - Attack AML - Winger - Support STC - Defensive Forward - Defend You could probably switch the Raumdeuter to either AMR or AML depending on which is your strongest side / best player to fit that role. Let me know what you think & any improvements are welcome. http://www.mediafire.com/download/xdvv5fxg1655isd/ATTACKING_4-2-3-1_PRESSING.tac
  11. I'm in the process of uploading my tactic... Any recommendations on a good file sharing site? Matt
