  1. I got the same problem with my side, more shots, more possession but im not racking goals and wins, like i feel i should, or like my misconception tells me. On the other hand, what is the key to a successful strategy as a big club, playing 90% of the time against weaker ones, and 10% against even or slightly better sides ? There tend to be two suggestions: 1.) Speed the game up to a level, where the opposition cant follow. This is very risky, but the most spectacular way of winning, although you need a good defensive setup, to cope for the numbers at front. But most of the time you s
  2. Or the player you fell in love with, who does not fit into your system, the formation, which does not fit to your squad. Love that post, 'cause everybody knows the feeling, sacrificing the favorite player to achieve the greater good. FM is pure philosophy.
  3. Hey James, maybe you could elaborate further with llama via PM or open up an own topic, since i still got some questions regarding my tactics and problems. Dont want to sound salty or anal but this thread kinda goes away hijacking @ llama Ty for your Input, it really improved my tactic a lot.

If i wouldn't get a quick chance, my aim would be to break up the attack, move the ball in a fast, decisive way around
  5. Hello guys, first post here so i hope i dont get anything wrong. I am playing the FM17 since the Beta got out and trying to change my usual short-passing possession play to a more attacking and direct style. This is my system: CF-AT IF-SU IF-SU CM-A CM-S DM-D WB-S CD-D CD-D WB-S Mentality: Attacking Shape: Flexible/Fluid TIs: Play out of defence PIs: Sit narrower, Cut inside and get further Forward for the IF-S I'm playing with Borussia Dortmund, so im in the 1st or at least 2nd Tier of European Top Clubs, and besides Bay
