  1. Has someone experience with this tactic: Can someone review it? I play on the counter a lot. And sometimes I read you have to play with a high line, sometimes I read you have to play with a deeper line. In this tactic the manager is using a slightly deeper line with 3 real center backs. How will this work out in your opinions?
  2. Clubs in debts

    What are the teams with the highest debts in FM17? I'm not talking about teams like Man Utd (debt: 629M euro + Value: 1.39 billion euro), but about teams which value is lower than the value. Teams which are facing the possibility to get points reduction.
  3. In contrast with the most managers I'm a manager with a defensive attitude. Most of the time playing 4-1-2-2-1 (wide), 4-2-3-1 (wide) or 4-1-2-1-2 (narrow). I prefer to manage teams in the lower leagues of England. I'd like to play on the counter where we are closing down more and playing narrow. Sometimes with a higher tempo and direct passing. I prefer the youth and will never buy a very expensive player older than 27. I'm scouting a lot but 90% of my transfers (in engeland) will be UK/irish players.
  4. No youth intake

    Can someone confirm this? I'm now in 2018 with Wycombe. The club is getting better but we're without youth players. I've finished season 1 with promotion to league 1 and our youth teams (U23, U18) played in youth leagues (and did pretty well). But I didn't get the intake in my first season (as expected). But also not in 2018 (second season).
  5. No youth intake

    @EdvARSENAL Did you get players in 2019? I have the same issue.
  6. No players in -18

    Now I see: I'm in U23 and U18 leagues and I'm also in 2018. Will I get youth intake in 2019?
  7. I'm playing with Wycombe. I promoted in my first season to league 1 and I'm now 4th in league 1. But I've no real players in my u18 squad. I did not get the message to sign youth players. I have a head of youth. Even teams in the vanarama have players in U18. What am I doing wrong? It's the first time I face this issue.
  8. @Hootieleece Thanks for your reply. I will take your comments into account and test some things during the preperation season. Didn't knew that at all. It seems a bit strange for me because I would think a disciplined defender will mark tighter. But I'll be wrong I turned it on after a few games because we started shooting from everywhere. Maybe I have to turn this off and give some personal instructions which restrict shooting from distance.
  9. I'm playing a save with Wycombe. Against all odds we became champions in league 2. Especially between November and February we were really good. Our start and finish were pretty bad. We also had some luck. Our competitors lost a lot of points. We finished top table but with the fewest points of all my selected leagues in England (From Premier League till Vanarama Nation North/South). Now I'm in June 2017, preparing for the new season in League 1. But the lack of quality in my squad concerns me. I'm able to get some new players. I have some space in the wage budget but the transfer budget is only 100K (euro). Michael Cain (Leicester - Blackpool loan, TOTY League 2), Brad Potts (Blackpool, TOTY League 2) and Dean Henderson (Man utd - Grimbsy loan) are my first signings. I've always the attraction to buy young players on Football Manager. But I think I need some experienced players too. Especially in a relegation battle. Now I'll show you my tactic (It worked very good in away games in League 2, at home it was more difficult): Personal instructions: Watt: cross from byline Harriman: roam from position Jacobson stay wider + run wide with ball De Hallivand: close down more + mark tighter Pierre: hold position Sometimes I changed my CDM to CAM. (Mavididi, Gape were on loan) + (Rowe is actually a Central Defender, he was some 'emergency option' on RB) - What improvements could I make (Tactical + player roles + instructions). Is it suicide to play with a high line (my defenders aren't that slow). - What are importent stats for players of teams in the bottom of League 1. (Please, relate this to my tactic, so don't begin to talk about false 9 strikers etc :D). - Every remark is welcome, also info about players which are the most important in my tactic.
  10. I played every edition of Football Manager since 2009. One of the most frustrating things in this game is conceding a corner. I feel so powerless when it happens. Now I'm currently playing with Wolves in a 4-2-3-1 (fluent counter attacking) and we did well. We finished up 5th but lost in the play-offs. We scored a lot of corners (most of all teams). But we also conceded a lot. The defending at corners was pretty basic: Stay forward: AML (Ola John). Mark tall players: Danny Batth (6.3 ft) + Kortney Hause (6.2ft) (central defenders) Mark far post: Dominic Iorfa (right back) Mark near post: Borthwick Jackson (left back) Go Back: Price (5.6 ft), Cavaleiro (5.7 ft), Mason (5.8 ft) Zonally mark six yard box near post: Böðvarsson (6.2 ft) Zonally mark six yard box center: Saïss (6.2 ft) Don't look too much to the players. Because during the season I need to make changes of course + the first season is finished and some players will come and go. What I want to know: - Is the pretty basic tactic on corners sufficient or do I miss important details? - Is it useful to play with players on both posts. - Is it very important to have strong/tall player on a specific postion? (okay preferably everyone needs to be tall, but that's not possible of course). - Is there a difference between: Checked or unchecked boxes. Will they both do the same? Is it important to check/tick the boxes for every player?
  11. Same issue too and it's really annoying.. Is there someone here who does not have the issue and can post a screen of the faces of its regens? Looks so weird to me that some people have this issue and some don't.
  12. Found someone? Started a new game with only "fake players" and did not found anyone with facial hair. (Don't want the issue of the german guy). I'm on FM17
  13. regens...all same face??

    Have the same issue.. I can really start over and over again this year.. I'd like to play games for more than 20 seasons so when everyone has the same face it's not "playable".. Probably have to start again when it's fixed. I've uploaded my game (Gillingham.fm) inside game-save on the FTP.
  14. Already some new about it? Thanks
