  1. I built this 3-5-2 which I think accurately sums up how they played against Barcelona in their 4-3 win. However, I can barely create any chances. I usually get about 60% possession which is good but my front 3 are always pushed up against the opposition defence, not moving around and making space. The ball pretty much is passed between the RPM and BBM with occasional switches to the CWBs resulting in blocked crosses.
  2. I hate losing games to mistakes by my players and flukey long shots. I'm managing Norwich in my 3rd season and I've been doing pretty well
  3. Thank you for this, I managed to beat Spurs 4-1 with a total of 5 CCCs. The wing play was great and that's where most of my chances were created from
  4. I do win comfortably against other teams with this formation, and I don't think I've ever scored from a set piece in this save. I can limit these teams to long shots but I struggle to even get 5 shots throughout the full game
  5. Recently, I've been struggling with teams that play 5 at the back, like Conte and Poch. I know I could probably use a 4-4-2 to win but I want to increase my tactical knowledge in the 4-2-3-1 formation so I can successfully adapt to different situations. My formation is as below: SK (Su) FB (D) - BPB (D) - CD (C) - FB (At) BBM (Su) - DLP (D) W (At) - AM (At) - IF (Su) DLF (Su) Standard : Structured Fairly Wide, Slightly Deeper, Use Offside Trap, Use Tighter Marking, Roam from Positions. The pictures are the formations I'm having troubles against
  6. I've set my width to play wider and I've changed one of the striker roles to AF. Haven't seen a difference but thanks anyways
  7. Every game I play is full of conceding cross after cross. My defenders all have good attributes and no matter what type of defense I try, I get absolutely walloped. I just conceded 5 goals against Arsenal and 2 against Burnley, just from crosses.
  8. My defenders are some of the best in the league yet somehow they're always prone to these crosses whether I play 4 or 5 atb. I've tried setting my defensive line higher and lower but it doesn't seem to change anything
  9. Is it wise to play a counter-attacking style of football against a team with lower rep that parks the bus? It seems hard to get their players to play more attacking so you can nick the ball and attack
  10. United play a 4-3-2-1 DM on mine, and Arsenal seem to be a very good team too. Played United in the FA Cup Final but ultimately lost 2-1
  11. Well, i wasn't expecting that amount of detail but thanks a lot, I'll try using your methods next time
  12. They seem unstoppable this year, it's like they are the Barcelona that played against PSG but on FM. They always come at you and somehow find a way to create tap in chance where the player actually passes the ball across goal, but when you want to do it, your players always try to shoot.
  13. That sounds like a good way to find a team. Continuously promoting various teams to turn drop down to find the perfect team. Let's hope Man City get relegated
