  1. has anyone had much success with this guy, i play him in Centre defence in 5-3-2 on the right side of a three but although his value is the highest and the biggest clubs seem to be interested from time to time out of my defenders he seems to play the worse, he can play easily as a full back or wing back but his attack rating for that position are awful so am not sure why people would play him there in modern game. in general my 3 centre back get the lowest ratings out of my team but i see it as they take points from each other as they are close, we let in few goals so it's okay in general. basically i'm asking has anyone got this player and see him reach a high ability and rating and what position or anything they can remember. Thanks
  2. i don't have the editor, what do you mean free up Ca improve it or something else? another question, when you see players with alot of red arrows redistibuting attributes does this mean they have reached their peak or just their CA for example if PA is 170 but CA is 155 would attributes be distibuted with red arrows as they have'nt improved more than this or do they keep improving untill they hit a ceiling?
  3. going on from this, does first team football improve different attributes vs training, say if you loan them out to championship there mentality will improve but in prem training more technical attributes?
  4. like i said i'm doing well in my save and have an idea of how to make some tactics, but not really sure of the reasons why to use one over the other, what circumstance would i select structured vs fluid etc i know it's just more learning but any advice would be great. for team shape especially do people chose it based on formation/opposition/mentality, i have a better understanding of what everything does but not when they are all needed.
  5. does target man attract the ball like playmakers, i was using one in my first season and it seemed to make a difference to how we played basically 90% of my goals scored when i used a TM where from crosses now it's alot less.
  6. i guess you just see messi and co pass intricatly and fast when creating chances but up until then the defence is measured with the ball, i know it more cimpicated but it seems for everything if you go right in mean more attacking while left means defence.
  7. in real life would you say Barca play high temp possession football, in my save we do better on a low tempo results wise, i might start seeing he we do against weaker teams with a high tempo. but we are a team who plays better than the quality of players we have.
  8. so what would people say are an advantge of high tempo and and advantage of low temp?
  9. but it is harder to retain possession on a higher tempo? is it easier to for the players to make the better decisions on lower tempo?
  10. would you say decision is an important attribute if you want to play higher tempo then? if you want to play possession football with a higher tempo you'd need quality players. in game on lower tempo are they more likely to make a better decision then if they take more time?
  11. resolute, fairly determined and fairly ambitious, 18, 23 and 21. basically all dropped about 75% of their attributes. it just freaked me out a bit as i've basically loaned most of my reserve and youth team out, and i thought i was doing the right thing for their development.
  12. so do people have certain rules to loan out players, so far i've been accepting most loan offers as long as they say the player will be first team or key, but i've just had a look at some of my players i have 3 all at one championship club they are all playing but for some reason all their attributes basically are in the red for all three players, can anyone explain this the clubs training facilities are good by the way? so how much value does playing first team football have on improvements compared to training at prem facilities?
  13. i've gone structured as i thought as my attacking players are so good they should be able to be left to do there own thing and the extra spacing would help, then i drew 5-5 with Ukraine so it seems half my team is working fine, then i beat italy 1-0 previous match (though i should of lost) thank god for De Gea, i changed my central mid to DLP(d) and CM(d) but i can never get a CM(d) to get a good end of match rating.
  14. am i right in thinking all national teams are at awkward for tactical familarity? or does it improve a lot if you stay in the job? just played Italy and somehow managed to win in probably the luckiest game i've had, interestingly they play 4-2-3-1 narrow aswell but didn't seem to have the problems i had, 1 thing i need to do is get the att mids to track their full backs as they had way too much space, also there was many times when one of my players had no idea what to do with the ball or would basically run into a team mate. if anyone else has used this formation any tips would be great thanks. i could possibly go 5-1-2-2 like i do with my club or maybe -5-2-1-2 but i'd really like to try something different for a learning experience.
  15. okay cool, fb(a) cd(d)x2 wb(s) b2b cm(d) ap(a)ap(s)am(s) cf(a) a problem might be the tactical familarity being so bad but then i guess it's like that for all nations teams, games are so few and far between and i'm right at the start of the Euro league so no real time to experiment. i'd like to play a possession style football with lot of movement. but it's a role i'm not familiar with as i've never used it with my club, so any advice would be nice. i'm thinking of adding a trequartista for the next match instead of one of the Ap. the problem i guess is they are all playing okay 7, but none of them are standing out and leaving a positive mark on the game, and i'm not sure how to get them all to shine when in such close proximity to each other. something i'm thinking about is would it be best if i went wide to create more room for each of them to play or narrow to focus the teams play through the centre where i am strong?
