  1. I'm not sure about the tight marking but your observations are interesting. Personally I don't bother with tight marking unless its late in the game and I'm trying to shut up shop to grind out a win. In both scenarios though you have conceded goals from wide opposition players sneaking a cross in behind your defence. You're playing a control mentality and fairly narrow formation. I would look at changing these. By playing control mentality you have a higher defensive line, so opposition can sneak around behind you,and by being narrow you are forcing all your players into the box and have no LB/RB wider to stop the crosses coming in. Try playing balanced / fairly wide and drop the defensive line back a little, I also see you are playing with a very fluid team shape, I actually find that a structured shape ensures the players follow my instructions much better. Less freedom for their own judgement
  2. I have found that small changes can make a big difference. My first season with Everton I conceded 67 goals in the premier league , luckily I scored a bucket load... Second season I started experimenting with my 2 central defenders, and found that having both set to defensive centre back (d) has brought me untold defensive joy. I've even kept some clean sheets and scraped games 1-0 which I never did in season 1. The other thing I found was setting a couple of players to 'stay back if needed' on offensive corners and freekicks stopped me conceding goals on the counter when playing control or attacking mentality, and I play fairly wide which helps to have bodies out on the flanks stopping crosses coming in
  3. Hi guys, still procrastinating about what I need to suit fm as well as work requirements 😐 I travel a lot and I'm now considering an ultra book due to their portability, but I can't find much info on how well an ultra book will handle fm. im thinking about this one, or a similar spec sell xps13 https://www.jbhifi.com.au/computers-tablets/laptops/lenovo/lenovo-yoga-910-i7-13-9-2-in-1-laptop-gun-metal/320575/ Obviously the graphics is a problem, but does anyone know if this will run fm on low detail? Also any experience with ultra books getting hot under heavy loads? thanks guys!
  4. Thanks heaps, you're a champ! I'll keep shopping around but at least I know I'm in the ball park now
  5. Thanks Welshace, that's what I thought. Do you think the 700 is a decent spec machine? Will it run FM well, and are there things missing that it should have to run well. Hope that makes sense!
  6. Hello guys, Could somebody please tell me what difference I can expect with these two options: http://www3.lenovo.com/au/en/laptops/ideapad/ideapad-700-series/IdeaPad-700-15ISK-/p/80RU00G3AU http://www3.lenovo.com/au/en/deals/current-offers/gaming-pcs/Notebook-IP-Y700-15ISK-I7-16G-1T-256-10H/p/80NV00FWAU Obviously the second option is nearly $1000 more expensive, but what am I getting that's worth that much more? I am looking for a solid laptop mainly for work (lots of excel spreadsheets) and then some FM, but I also want something that's somewhat future proof for the next few years. Cheers!
