  1. I use this setup from FM17.Always had good results, but after this season I will change it, cuz it seems more like an exploit.
  2. I think I scored like 3 or 4 goals at the back post.Most of the goals came from my DCR (see screenshot). He's the guy.
  3. This is my routine for corners.It's the same from left side. For free kicks I have the default setup. I agree that 13 for both are good for the level I am playing at the moment, but I still think this is to much. Ok, maybe he can cross that ball perfect most of the time, but the finishing from other players is insane.
  4. Also posted this guy on hidden gems thread. He's a beast. 8.30 rating for me in 6 games with 2 assists and 3 man of the match. If FM20 had better central play he would have like at least 5 or 6 assists.
  5. One more confirmation that this year Football Manager is more like set piece manager. My fullback which is the corner taker from the right side (for inswing) and my taker for freekicks also right side have 21 assists. He's only 13 at corner taking and free kick taking. Imagine if i had David Beckham in FM20 ... I'm curios how many assists Trend Alexander and Robertson had the last season.It's unreal for a left back to have such insane stats in only 25 games. LE : I play him as a WB(De) in a 4-2-3-1.So not to much assists from crosses.
  6. Got this guy for my Lyn Oslo side. He's playing for Elverum in the third league of Norway.Seems like a gem. Bought him for 2k and he wanted to downgrade a league just to sign with me.Also, great personality and he is not injury prone even with that natural fitness. I dunno if you can find him if you don't load Norway leagues.
  7. The finnish legend, Mika Aaritalo. I dunno which version of Fm, but I always bought him for nothing and he was such a beast.Could play him AMR/AML/ST.
  8. I tried to make a 4-2-3-1 in Fm20 and it was such a pain. But, from all things i tried i saw that a combination of DLP(S) and a BBM(S) works great for 4-2-3-1.But you should have proper players to cover the roles. If you play with a defensive duty in your central midfield, your team will be dominated on winning posession at the mid and also your players will stay to deep when you attack. So imo use hold position PI on a CM(S) if you don't want to use a DLP(S). So, I came with a solution to this if you have a lower team like mine. I put a fullback on defend duty(the one on the same side with your BBM). So right now a good setup for 4-2-3-1 should be something like this : DLF(A) IF(A). SS. W(S) BBM. DLP(S) WB(D). CD. CD. FB(A) I still have problem creating a good partnership between my AMC and Striker, but the setup above seems decent.
  9. No. I saved the game just after my last game(which was a league game) and the draw was after 2 days.I never got the same opponent and I tried fourth times. Maybe you get the same opponent if you save one day before or in the same day of the draw.
  10. "The first two rounds are set up by the Norwegian Football Association, and the top flight teams are usually pitted against fairly weak amateur teams, often in rural areas, on the amateur team's home pitch." Yea, seems like it should be that way, but I had Valerenga on the first round at their stadium. At the fourth draw I got Skjetten SK, also a fourth league team like me.Anyway i will be back at the original save and play Valerenga at their stadium.Maybe next season! Wish me luck guys!
  11. Then the coincidence attribute of the game must be 20. LE : I used load and save three times to see what happend if I reload the draw.All the time I got a first league team.Yea, FM is not rigged.
  12. Played like 4 seasons (all of them in Norway) in this FM until now and i always choose to play small teams. First save i tried with a third league and now i play with a fourth league team, Lyn Oslo. In all of 4 seasons I had the hardest draw possible in Cup games.It's unbelieveble how the game always choose the hardest opponents possible.In 4 seasons, first round, 3 times against first league teams, one time against second league team. In the first round you have 128 teams and I always get a first league team like Rosenborg or Valerenga.Also, I don't understand the rules for Norway Cup, but the games are always away.So no advantage at all. Considering that I have a small team the cup is a very good opportunity to make money for my balance and it's really frustrating that you always get the hardest opponents possible. I am the only one so "lucky" or the game is that rigged ? Have you ever experience something like that ? Cuz I find it hard to believe it's coincidence.
  13. In a lot of games fullbacks get yellow card in the first minute of the game.It's insane, cause in reality referee don't give cards for first faults, only when thr tackle is horrible.
  14. Played about 20 games with Beta match.Pre-season games + first offical game (cup game against a weaker team) which i reloaded few times to see how ME works.And my conclusions are next : Defenders behave better, but still they are giving a lot of balls to the opponents when you defend and always the highlight have to end with AI bad finishing or scoring. For me, it seems like AI exploits the ME, in particular when you play against lower teams.They always find crazy shoots, or crazy tiki taka passing, or even insane crossing to score.Also they rate to score it's at least 50%.In 2 chances, they will score at least once.I wouldn't mind if it where the same for my team, but when i played a stronger side, i never had the privilege to be so clinical. Lots of goals from long shots. About crossing, AI always cross to the far post and in most of the time the crosses are just perfect.Watching the AI players ability to cross, that's unreal, cause they have under 8 crossing skill.In the meantime, your wingers are always skeptical when they have a clear opportunity to cross.But, still is an improvement to the latest patch. AMC is useless, better not use it.I tried to use him in different roles, but nothing works fine.Also, it seems like your central players doesn't want to pass him.I found that AMC as a second striker works pretty decent and that's pretty much all you can get from this role. 90% of the highlights are starting with a set piece and I don't know if I scored more than 5 goals from action in these 20 games.Lots of goals from set pieces and lots of corners.And yeah, never had a goal from central play and I tried a 4-2-3-1 for this save. If SI can solve those problems the game will be pretty good.It's clearly an improvement from the latest patch, but I still think it's frustrating to play with this ME.
  15. Can someone tell us if the next patch it will be with the winter transfers or just an update to the match engine? At the moment the game is unplayable and I want to start another save just to play the preseason and wait for a new patch at the beggining of the season. But, if the new update will have the winter transfers incorporated I can wait then. I'm so excited to play this game and to be honest every day I look to see if there is an update. SI should consider giving us more infos because right now I can't use a product that I bought few months ago and it's kinda frustrating. And i'm pretty sure I' m not the only one complaining about this. Thank you in advance, Bogdan
