  1. Take your pick.....there are quite a few the top of the page
  2. You can only shout once to a certain player in a certain amount of time, I’m not sure if it Is 10 or 15 mins.
  3. But giving them too many plus whatever instructions are set in the role they will be playing will lead to instruction overload.
  4. The more I play this game I believe it is all about the maths though..... take a perfect well balanced tactic truish to real life and it can fail..... take a totally unbalanced tactic contradictory to real life tactics and people find success. I play to the former, think that’s where I’m going wrong...
  5. So frustrates me when A. The player has attributes to play the role. B. When according to the same guy it’s his most suited role but after 40 games he needs more game Time to become accustomed to the role. with information like this I fully understand how newbies get confused with this game.
  6. I’m not sure how this familiarity works, I always play the same formation but I always get the comment saying so and so is not familiar with your formation and needs more game time..... after 40 matches I would fully expect players to be familiar with the formation.
  7. I would imagine all those traits plus other instructions you give him could get a little messy, and may lead the player to not do what you want him to do.
  8. Found it now, now sure how this app works things out but it says a full back on support doesn't offer support to a winger on attack...... 🤷🏻‍♂️ Maybe useful as a guide to newcomers but certainly wouldn't look to make a tactic from it.
  9. A lot of the advice you get here will say you need to think of a style you like and go about replicating it, to me that can be difficult to a newcomer and is trying to run before you can walk. Have a look at the excellent pairs and combinations thread, it goes about showing how to set up a balanced tactic, if you can get a balanced tactic working you can then add various instructions to define a style of play but to begin with I would just go down the balanced route that suits the players you have.
  10. 100% this, a sensible way of going about it for players of all levels whether new or experienced. As I mentioned in another post most of the advice to people here is to think of a style and then go about making it work in FM terms, to me this makes the game complicated. You don't need to have a particular style in mind just a well balanced tactic that suits your players.
  11. If your looking to play a double pivot in the midfield then BWM on any duty can be a bit risky in my opinion especially if it's on the same side as your wing back. Cm D would work better for me. But depends on what your looking for.
  12. Loving this thread, it just goes to show that you don't have to have a definite idea of how you want to play and go about replicating it which is so often the answer here when anyone asks for help.
