  1. That's a concern I had, the target man not having crosses. Marseille doesn't really have wingers. I think it would be more suited to change the striker's role then. Mitroglou has good stats in a quite specific style: strong, finisher, great headers, but slow, not very mobile, no team work. He is made to be a target man, the guy you look for on crosses, even though he can also play poacher, complete, advanced or trequarista, but not nearly as good as TM. I also have Germain who has a very different set of stats. His strengths are less strong than Mitroglou's but he is way more well-rounded.
  2. Hi After playing some FM16 and 18 I realize I am totally incompetent with tactics. I started 3 saves with Marseille, been sacked twice and the thrid, I would have if I hadn't stopped before. I think most of my issues are tactical. (FYI I'm on FM Touch, if this is a useful info) Here is my idea, as Marseille's squad is basically made for that type of tactic: (click on the positions to see a screen of the player) Team instructions (unchanged so far) All the player instructions are the defaut ones. In my 3 saves, I've tried different tactics. 4-2-3-1, 4-
  3. All of them. I tried 4-3-3, 4-2-3-1, 5-2-3, 4-4-2. Offensive, defensive, counter-attack, possession. Self-made, downloaded. Couldn't even get first half of the league in my 3rd attempt (board wanted that because I arrived after 11 games and the club was 12th). No matter what I do I feel like it's the same. I played like 70 games total, all have been the same.
  4. Hi I'm looking for a way, on FM16, to start with an owner trying to sell the club. I want to play with Marseille, and I want the previous owners to be looking for selling (as they were IRL). But I never really found a way. I don't really see that type of option in the editor. I guess that ticking "will leave club at the end of the season" only applies to the players/staff (in the Contract page of editor). I never thought of setting a retirement date, maybe this would do the trick? Is it possible? Thanks
  5. Usually not too good. But even in wins I get those. And even when I have the ball (which is never by much, and it's not that often).
  6. Very generic question: how do I keep the ball? It's my third save, and every single game of those 3 saves, I've been told that "we're losing the ball a lot in the midfield" and "we can't keep the ball in the opponent's half". I've tried different 4-2-1-3, 4-3-3, a few 4-4-2, a 5-2-3. I've tried all sort of player. All sort of opponents. Of course, my first instinct is: "Keep the ball", "Play shorter passes". Yes, but no. Doesn't work. Even without any instructions (by that, I mean just the defaut ones on a "normal" approach), I get that, and I don't play reckless or fast or risky. I
  7. Are people achieving anything in Touch 18? I'm starting to wonder because, even though I would never call myself "good", I'm astonished at how bad I am... The only other person I've seen plaing Touch is a youtuber who plays full FM every year, got good results, yet in Touch 18 he gets battered (like, badly). I guess it's not the game, but I just check if more experienced players struggle more than they should.
  8. Second time I'm sacked with Marseille (well technically the first I stopped before being sacked) I don't know, there must be something I really don't understand with that game. I bought Sturaro and Nissen, and it started well. Even beat Monaco 1-0. And then, without really any obvious reason, I started to lose every single game. Gustavo was bad, Thauvin was bad, Amavi was really bad, both my strikers couldn't score at all. I don't know, two saves with Marseille, and the exact same things happens. Even the games are almost all the same. I'm just really bad at this game I guess. EDIT:
  9. You really need someone to add it to the wishlist when it's something that was in the game for years and that you deleted just so people would be tented to take the most expensive version indeed?
  10. Somebody really manages to do something with OM?! I'm struggling quite hard. Thauvin is atrovious. He had 3 consecutive games, and nothing since or before. Payet is very inconsistent. Germain and Mitroglou are dreadful. Mitroglou, as a target man, supposed to stay on top, spend a lot of time on the wings. His shots are literally 10 to 15 meters off from the goal. Germain has scored his first goal after 14 games and brings nothing. The rest is decent (although Amavi is bad), but I still struggle and conceed bad goals. I lost against Nice (16th), Strasbourg (19th), Caen (20th) recently. I
  11. I started with Marseille to since it's my favorite team for like 20 years. As usual I struggle tactic-wise. I didn't buy anybody, I only programmed the tranfer of De Ligt for next summer to renew that defense. In the winter I want a midfielder and a right back but so far I couldn't really decide who. I'm only late spetember, and it's... mixed. In the league, I don't really lose but I don't win either, so I'm 9th after 7 games. In EL, it's better, first of my group with 2 wins in 2 games. Thauvin seems to start being after being atrocious for like 10 games. Mitroglou starts scoring af
  12. Hopefully this is considered a "training question" but honestly, I couldn't find any more suitable thread. When I go into the team report in FM Touch, it tells me there is room for improvement on the coaching team. But I can't change the coachs in FMT. I can change the assistant, but he has 4 out of 5 stars, which seems more than ok. Is "assistant" what they mean by that?
  13. My first save will be as always with my fav team, Marseille! I'll use (at first at least, hopefully I can make it work) a system that isn't even slightly in the pipe IRL, but I think we have some players to use it! A 5-2-3, with Payet as a playmaker on the left, Thauvin as an inside forward and Mitroglou as a target. With Gustavo as a ball winner and Sanson as a CM, on paper it's really really good. Amavi - Sakai are offensive providers who can defend, but are mostly offensive, so it's perfect. The only problem IRL would be central defense, but in the game they look fairly good. Abdennour
