  1. Hi, may I ask is the ASUS C223 suitable please. Is it possible to get a £150-£200 laptop it will work on ? Thank you
  2. With the ending of FM touch, I'm interested in the full version. Does the game work on the cheaper laptop's, if not, what's the cheapest laptop it would work on please ? I would only use it for the game.
  3. I've abandoned the high line and now playing a standard line with lower LOE but without counter instruction. It seems to be safer defensively. The players are still patient with the ball looking for openings but when the counter presents itself, they seem to make use of that as well
  4. What's strange is I played exactly the same tactic but, with different personal last season and had no problems defensively. A big difference this season though has been the number of injuries making it impossible to put the same team out
  5. OK, I need to watch the game carefully to identify this but,in our last game the issue was that they were passing round us and although my players got close to them, there was no tackle or manoeuvring them off the ball. Noticeable over half the goals we concede are from through balls in the middle. We regularly play a high defensive line which could explain why although I do move them back against pacey attackers. Is there anything that can be done about this?
  6. Since the upload, I've swapped the DLF for a BWM which seems to have helped things defensively. I've also changed the AMR to a normal winger. In tougher fixtures the DM could become an anchor or half back ?
  7. I watch every game on comprehensive and have noticed we do seem to lose the ball cheaply sometimes but, the biggest issue is that the opposition do seem to be able to play right through us. Passing directness and tempo are both balanced along with tempo plus the pressing is slightly higher and o regularly ask them to get stuck in. Perhaps as you say there's not enough players with the right defensive attributes? I will check the team comparisons to see which style would suit the team more. Perhaps the passing game I'm attempting isn't suitable
  8. That's ok There's at least two players getting injured every week which is annoying. When everyone's fit that is pretty much the set up I use with two WBs and the AML as either INWa or INFa.
  9. The two others got injured within a week of each other
  10. Team morale seems to be ok and fitness but, we're getting a huge number of injuries so it's never the same team going out. I use standard def line with lower LOE against better teams plus a 4141, this was effective last season but, we're getting well beaten this time by all of them. The players I play at AML and AMR offer nothing when further back in a 4141.
  11. What we do when we lose the ball seems to be the biggest issue, which is strange because team pressing is set quite high. If Digne is fit he will always play as a WBs, and that adds a great deal attacking wise
  12. I've played a lot of the matches with high def line and standard LOE but, had the same issues. We seem to just get overrun even against similar team's. There's some games we have the higher Xg but the opposition always look like scoring. Allan plays Def Mid who has excellent defensive stats but, perhaps the DLP ahead doesn't offer enough defensively. If I use a BWM there instead though, won't that effect the possession game I'm attempting?
  13. I normally play a high LOE, this was a tactic against a far stronger team that was a 4141 before with the AMR as a winger not INW
  14. Hi, is this tactic too optimistic, I'm getting the movement I want with plenty of support and movement in the final third but, conceding far too many goals, I'm considering a BWM instead of an DLP but, I want to keep a playmaker. Would a APM work instead of the CMa ? I would lose his late runs into the box though which is where a lot of my goals and best chances come from. Is there other changes that obviously need making ?
  15. There's no particular playing style I'm set on but, I do think with this team, counter is the way to go to get the best out of them, I may well be wrong, I'm still learning. The plan I have is to attack down the wings with the DLF and Cm a keeping up with them and to be getting in the box. Saying that I will still consider all the questions you're asking. The plan is to be a defensive team and achieve narrow wins but, whether this can be achieved with a 4123, I'm not sure. When I can, I'll upload some screenshots of the squad.
  16. Great advice, in this scenario, a carrilero helped considerably, thank you
  17. OK thank you. The goals have generally started down our left side, which is understandable, that's where I've concentrated on improving
  18. OK, so is the DM going to need to be a regista for example, in which case who, if any do I give a defend duty to. I've switched the BWM to a car s. I'm playing the right central midfielder as a CM a, does this need to be the playmaker instead with a defensive mid behind him ? I have been playing 4141 with little success but, I haven't played attacking wingers so, I'll switch to that and raise the LOE. Do I use this against the very best teams though ?
  19. That does make sense, there's probably too much space down that side. Perhaps a carrilero or cm s
  20. DLFa IW a Ws BWM s CMa DLPd WBs CD CD FBs Positive men, standard LOE and Def line, Counter, regroup, more urgent pressing, get stuck in. I've started a new save with Everton, so I have the original squad.
  21. Generally the channels as you say but, some through the middle as well
  22. OK, I'll change DLF s to DLF attack. The system is still quite porous defensively, is there anything I can do about this or is it always going to be with three up front ?
  23. The main issue I'm having now is how to attack in a defensive tactic. Against much better teams I normally resort to 4141 with a lower LOE. I'm finding this is effective defensively on occasions but, blunt going forward. I don't know how to resolve this. I'm basically attempting a 1 nil smash and grab. Since the picture, a different player plays as the DLP and I do find he gets forward to be involved surprisingly. I will try DCL on an attack duty and see what difference that makes but, I like at the moment how he's back in midfield sometimes to help get the ball back. I've slightly increased the pressing since, based on advice here but, my central defenders aren't the quickest so when I've played a high defensive line before it's not worked. At the moment I've got standard LOE and defensive line.
  24. OK, thank you, I'll give it try, there's nothing to lose and that does make sense
