  1. Does anyone watch the full match or leave it to highlights? I find highlights a bit boring but them again the full math could last up to 90 minutes which is also a lon time ti watvh a match. how does everyone else watvh the match?
  2. Believe it or not, I drew 0-0 twice in a row and to be honest. It made me happy. The formation I use gets me a clean sheet majority of the timr though I may concede sloppy goals which ovbiously is coming through my tatics.
  3. As I posted above, what I meant by deadly is affective not thumping deadly lol. I just added the youngster bit into it due to my starting 11 having 1 player over 21 so it was more of a "put it there just because of 5-3-2 as the title is bland" lol As your suggestion to the penetration in the box, I also stated it above The majority of goals start with the team around the half way line (the CF being no forward than the D) and it's built up. Yes, I also admit. I got leaked once or twice out of the 5 conceded since usig this tactic but thats expected.
  4. As I said its a work in progress. When I update the thread with screenshots and more detail, you'll see what I mean. I'll providing examples of how it works for me throughout a match against a weaker then a stronger team and etc. Should be done tomorrow night. yes, players are on support also for the main fact of the defensive side. What I am gathering with this formation and tactic is that my whole team starts around the half way line, they pass the ball about, working their way upfront as it will show on the screenshots via action zones. The counter mentality is there for the aspect of pat
  5. Their tactics? Analysis the game, their strongest points and their weak points. Try and exploit their fullbacks/centerbacks if theyre having a bad game. Look for ways to exploit the tactics they use. However, I'd put on a more counter mentality if it was me. Switching the midfield to 3 men so you woulf have 4-1-3-1 if you were using 4141. If it was 442 id change to 441 or even the 4-1-3-1. Put the midfielders into a more support role like box to box, deep lying playmaker and a CM support. Also your full backs, change them to wing backs (support). Give them instructions to stay wider. Thing I
  6. I had the choice to talk to him or contract offering (he wasn't that interested) but contract went smoothly and only took one attempt.
  7. Start praising players, try and make sure everyone is happy with the training. When giving the chance, speak to the squad. Give them morale support for their upcoming work. Soon as you win a couple of games morale will rise too. For example, Woodrow at the start of the season hated being at Fulham, his heart was set on leaving to Tottenham. I rejected, broke my promise to let him go. He took it to the press. Couple of games into the season he scored 5 goals, and 5 assists and he then released to the media he is very happy to stay at Fulham and he even signed a new deal and scored 4 goals o
  8. I ain't an expert or even that knowledgeable of the FM system but I want to put my input down on it. Lower league, I'm assuming ammetuer (semi) contracted players? Some players like their team bond, their local team. So I'm assuming it could be one of those reasons. These players may not be in it for the money but for the fun, and team bond?
  9. I got my staff assessing them, telling me if theyre worth the new contract. Then I will decide what player deserves the contract. I find this better as I like my staff focused on the youth leaving me, my coaches and assistant(whom is useless and only useful for the 2 weeks review).
  10. A notion As I was playing football manager, I recently got promoted by Fulham and now on my second season. I used to play with a 4-2-3-1 which was okay but not effective defensively as I wanted it to be. I decided for a change two games in to my Premier League when I faced Manchester City (H) with a 4-1-2-1-2 formation, put on a counter mentality with a structured play. I scraped a 1-0 win however this is just how I thought to myself, defensive play works. I want to try and build something like Van Gaal's Manchester United but a bit of my own twist. I want to try and establish possession,
  11. Dele Alli and Martin Odegaard. Two CMs wgich are solid defensive and offensive. I just played them together. Odegaard had several positions before then but Alli likes 1,2s and and this comes in great with Odegard who is composed and also the same mentality.
  12. Yeah, exactly what I did. A couple of regens and Sebrotic (or something) from Celtic. All for less than 15m. So a bargain for me.
  13. I got him first time however his WP stopped him from playig for 3 months. He became unhappy. I still have him but I dont even have him on a rotation basis due to other signings. Blame the WP lol
