  1. I never did see you two in the same thread come to think of it Good luck with this by the way. I'd love to try and re-create some tactics from those days like PB3 or the 442 DDL I made but the former would get smashed to bits and the latter is impossible without good old wibble/wobble.
  2. It does happen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIsjWcLrTsU
  3. I agree with what you say about the defensive problems dealing with opposition central midfielders, this was my main concern, and indeed the most common way the AI was scoring against me as they had enough space and time to play around the DMC and take long shots at goal. The obvious solutions would be to raise the D-Line or perhaps when you are under pressure to drop the two AMC's back to make a 4-1-4-1. I think I might go with the latter when facing a superior team away from home and the former when at home. It makes sense.
  4. crouchaldinho - This is the same formation that I was using recently, and found it to produce the best football in terms of passing triangles and making the opposition chase shadows that I have seen on FM09. I then went and deleted it by mistake But I really do think this has bags of potential, interestingly enough I also used a similar mentality system, when I changed the mentalities from global to individual ones, the quality of football went downhill. I have just started a new game last night with the intention of setting this up again, as I remember the key aspects of it. Would be good to share some ideas and findings out if you're still using the same formation.
  5. It's obviously not major, but I agree with him it should be sorted, I've moved the sliders plenty of times now to what I thought was centre, then realising it was already. I 'reset' tactics all the time before creating one, so I notice it a lot. But I'd settle for fixing the damn right click bug first.
  6. So what is the difference in say a ML with a short farrow to AML compared to a ML with a farrow to FL? Do they both mean FR's often? How is this going to work when setting up a tactic, if you change a fullbacks FR's to rarely on the slider does it automatically give a barrow on the overview screen?

It's changed a hell of a lot!
  8. Well Cleon, it's had a better reception than I think we thought it would Might even get around to playing FM again myself and my version of it when I am sick of Rainbow Six Vegas 2
  9. Nope, no Counter. Cleon - I don't think it matters too much about having players that can play comfortably on both sides, I mean I am playing Oba Martins as the AML and his last 5 appearances have seen 8-8-8-6-8 ratings.
  10. <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by Uncle_Sam: Interesting setup Cleon & Buxton. Just curious, do you focus play down the flanks with this tactic? </div></BLOCKQUOTE> Mixed, as Cleon does. I have my AMR and AML set up to swap during the game and a lot of my goals come from the players cutting inside on their strong foot and scoring into the far corner.
  11. After experimenting with the 4312 for a bit I am definitely going back to this shape in my Newcastle game. ...and my first result with it
  12. I am leaning towards that myself jaycar, just played Spurs away and got beat 2-1 (albeit a tad harshly) and the wide strikers Owen and Martins were not that effective, so in my last match away to Pompey I changed to a 4312 midway through the game and turned a 1-1 into a 2-1 away win for me.
  13. Anyone made any more progress with this? I am just about to boot up FM for the first time in a couple of days and continue.
