  1. I want to thank everyone that replied. I think I would boil it down to this: Either you defend by having the ball and when your opponent has the occasional possessionl you try and defend that attack. or You defend by allowing the opponent possession and having your defenders defend (hoping they do not make a mistake) and then attacking on the occasion you have the ball.
  2. I love possession style tactics and it is usually what I go with. For me, if I don't have > 55% possession my tactic isn't working. It is what I know and what I am comfortable with. Something I heard sparked interest in me. I heard that José Mourinho stated, "We don't want possession, we want the space." What kind of formation, team instructions, and roles would you use for a style that said, "We don't want possession, we want the space."
  3. I thought it might be, but i know I should not be getting asked if I want to sub off opponents players because they have an orange injury
  4. In my Advice "tab?" I am getting questions for the other team's injuries. Also, maybe I am just having bad luck, but suddenly my teams injuries is very high
  5. I just spent 4 hours working on some excel spread sheets....for a video game. I spent 7 hours doing nothing but meeting my new team, setting schedules, hiring managers, and scouting players. I advanced one week in game time. I have spent 7 hours doing nothing but advancing through preseason. Sometimes this game scares me.
  6. So we all know that when you take over a team you never have any players scouted. I can understand why you might not be able, as a manager, to take the player information you have scouted from one team to the next. But why doesn't your new team have a list of players they have scouted? Example: Going into my 6th season I have taken over a tier 2 team. Their scouting center has like 3 players scouted. For 5 seasons they should have been scouting. Why can't they already have a database of players scouted?
  7. I am by now means an expert and like you I have watched a lot of videos and read a lot articles. Here are some tips of what I do (PS I play a lot at lower league levels). 1- At the first of each month I set my training schedule for that month. 2- Whenever I get a news item in my inbox about a change in my fixtures I change the training from the news article. 3- What I do for training depends upon: How my team is playing. My team's Tactic Familiarity. How good the next opposition is. 4- After every match I have a Recovery, Match Review, and Team Bonding (Inc
  8. Thank you. Yeah, I think I figured that out about 20 minutes after I posted.
  9. I know some of this has been said, but... I have a pre-Winter update save. If I close FM21 down using anything other than the default skin when I reload there will be no Match Sharpness Icons in any Squad or Tactics view. The Fatigue column will also be blank. I looked this up and went into AppData/Local and removed my Cache folder and my preferences folder. Restarted the game Icons were there, but when I closed down FM21, with anything other than the default skin, they disappear. I have two computers and this happens on both computers. Currently what I have to do is befor
  10. "Struggling for possession in the opponents half" for me seems to be the "being overrun in the midfield." What are some tips to stop the struggling?
  11. Hope this does not break the rules but I had to share this for others. I have no contact or relation to FM Stinger on YouTube, but his positional and tactic videos have done a lot to help me understand different roles and what they do on the pitch. He makes it simple and uses in game footage to show exactly what is going on. Lots of great help.
  12. I am not the greatest at tactics, but when I use the analyst reports for clues. For instance, if it says that the other team is scoring a lot from crosses I know to put my defensive width wider to make sure to press their FB's and Wingers. Stuff like that.
  13. We all know that FM21 got rid of role familiarity. It did not get rid of Position familiarity. Currently Position familiarity ranges from Natural to Accomplished to Competent all the way down to Poor. Obviously you want to play a player in his Natural position if you can. It is my understanding that you can never train a player so that their Position familiarity is Natural. The highest it can get is Accomplished. So what is the difference between playing a player in his Natural position versus playing him in a position he is only Accomplished in? How big of a difference does
