  1. Malaga have a lot of their youngsters will extremely high attributes, leading them to have recommended CAs much higher than they're actual CA, sometimes even higher than their PA. When you load up a save, their attributes are reduced, however this sometimes leads to greatly imbalanced players. Maybe it would be better to give them more well rounded attributes, including filling in the null value attribute, to they can be more well balanced, hence realistic, players. Also, Malaga have 7 null value General Sponsers in the editor, again it doesn't affect the game, just thought may
  2. Josh O'Connor at Hibs has his height at 186cm, when it should be 180cm according to the club website. https://www.hibernianfc.co.uk/player/josh-oconnor Also Jamie Gullan has higher Positioning (10) than Off the Ball (6), which is quite strange for a striker, is that supposed to be the case?
  3. I'm going to repost what I said in the previous thread: Also I'd like to highlight that they belaboured the point in the Tweet about his goal against Celtic that he is a "left sided defender", therefore that could be an indication that he's left footed. Also maybe give him some competency at left-wing back, as he's played there when Hibs played in a back 3, against Aberdeen, Celtic and Rangers.
  4. I've been looking at the Hibs players in preparation for a save when the game is out, and I've noticed one peculiar thing. Josh Doig, who is a left back in the game, and on his profile on the Hibs site that says he's "comfortable at centre-back, left-back or left wing-back", is right footed. Now granted I've never seen him play but it's odd to see a defender who plays exclusively on the left be right footed. I've tried to find footage of him playing to confirm and all I've found was 2 minute video. In that video you can see he dribbles with his left foot almost exclusively, an indicator t
  5. Hibs have a partnership with Charleston Battery in the USL Championship, so they should be one of their affiliated clubs in the game. Is it past the cut off point for the database in the full game or can this be put in? https://www.charlestonbattery.com/news_article/show/1131964?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=post&utm_campaign=11.10_PressHibsAnnounce
  6. @Zemahh Amazing work as always, I have to commend you on how well you protray your ideas and knowledge of how the tactics interface works. I also can't thank you enough for letting us know about that Monchi masterclass, I'm 7 episodes in and loving every second.
  7. Boots on the Pitch In this post I’ll be covering the player roles and specific Player Instructions (PI) that I use. Let’s start from the top, our attacking duo. Strikers In my RB Leipzig save (I went for the best team for this tactic to see if it can cut it at the top), I had 3 strikers to choose from. Timo Werner, Yussuf Poulson and Patrick Schick. For “Turbo” Timo, I went for Pressing Forward (Attack) because it has all the things I want from the spearhead of the attack, such as Get Further Forward and Moves Into Channels (much like the Advanced Forward), but it also has Cl
  8. Here is a tactic that doesn't use full-backs or wing-backs, although the original is from an older version of FM (There will be newer takes later on) and it would require very talented players to pull off. You can also try a Conte inspired tactic, a 3-5-2 but instead of Wing-Backs, have Defensive Wingers on the M-strata.
  9. Amazing stuff, this will be very helpful to anyone who's new to the game, even some of the veterans! Also the title reminded me of the best tactics threads in this forum, made by one of your countrymen @VinceLombardi. I think you'd find them very interesting.
  10. Football with wings If you ask a German football fan which entity is despised the most is Germany, he will probably tell you it’s Dietmar Hopp, the co-founder of software giants SAP and financier of TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, but a very close second would be RasenBallsport Leipzig. The thing they have in common, apart from them vitriol they get from fans all across Germany, is a man. That man is Ralf Rangnick. As mentioned previously, he was one of the first coaches to use the doctrine of ball-oriented pressing in Germany. Leipzig before Rangnick was a very different beast. Matthias Ki
  11. Absolutely amazing Zemahh, I love the idea and how you went about achieving it. Your thought process is so clear and all your ideas are laid out so well. Top drawer stuff. You've honest given me so much food for thought for a defensive tactic with my upcoming save. What do you do for opposition instructions? I ask because I was reading knap's megathread and I saw a post about the importance to have your most advanced midfielder/deepest lying striker mark the opposition's deep-lying playmaker or equivalent to disrupt play. Maybe that would be a perfect job for your AP in the upcoming ite
  12. How have I missed out of this thread for this long, amazing content. After 14 years of playing FM, I didn't think I'd have anything left to learn (except the match engine that's still a mystery to me) but I'm glad to say I've learnt so much by reading through your thread. Honestly hats off to you Ben, KUTGW! I don't know if I have the full grasp of this. RCA (recommended current ability I'm guessing) is affected differently for different attributes depending on the position, therefore, for example, increasing a striker's finishing will 'cost' more CA points than doing the same thing fo
  13. Jimbo your dedication is phenomenal, you're 25 years in and you're still planning for the future. I honestly enjoy reading your stories more than playing the game sometimes. Hopefully you do win a continental competition will Ton Pentre before you go on your EFL and PL adventures.
  14. Sorry guys for going AWOL for over a month, I feel down the rabbit hole that is Age of Empires 2 and Modern Warfare. Now that COD has frustrated me to the point of no return, I think it's time to boot up FM again. I'm so glad to see you guys still kept the discussion going strong about breaking the oppositions spirit by constant harrowing and conquest. I mostly did use the 4411 with my Heidenheim save but I went for the 442 version more often once I sign Jan Hurtado and had 2 good strikers. I'm glad you found it inspirational! That sounds like a very interesting offer, maybe we
