  1. I’m 5 seasons in and my Leeds team just won the champions league. I was struggling against teams who sit deep and this tactic is working like a dream for me so far. Won 5 on the bounce.
  2. I’m still going too- 22/23 season and now trying to defend PL title! Did the double last year to end an annoying run of losing finals. Lost in both uefa cup and FA cup finals in previous seasons.
  3. Thanks- I left ‘be more expressive’ on as it came with the template vertical tikka Taka. Why do you say it needlessly complicates things?
  4. Thanks for the feedback. I only really play an AP behind the main striker since I got Phil Foden on loan- his performances were better, but I will take another look at that,
  5. Quick update from me... Ive posted in the main tactics thread for a bit of advice on striker roles because none of them are really firing (Roofe, Bamford or Solanke). I have 2 different tactics that I use
  6. Bit of advice please. My tactic is performing really well- top of Championship with Leeds and on course to win it by 10+ points. Only issue is that my centre forward doesnt score many goals (all 3 of them that I have tried have betwwen 5-8 goals). Ive tried PFA, CSs, AFa, DLFA but none of them seem to be right. Is there an obvious issue with my tactic thats causng a lack of space for the striker to operate in etc? e.g the high press ? Im having similar issues with my 2nd tactic thats more defensive.... any afvice on either would be appreciated. Like I say the tactics are working well.. im just being picky!
  7. I'm 30 games in and 9 points clear at the top in first season, but my centre forward isn't scoring many goals. What role do you give to Bamford? I've got Solanke on loan (jan) and Forden (jan loan). I either play 433 or 4231 so Bamford is up on his own with Roofe in the AMr position with an attack duty.
  8. 7 league games in and won 6 and drawn 1, so started really well. I disabled transfers in the first window so I've just got the original squad. It seems that if you use a base tactic and tweak it, you won't go far wrong.
  9. Go for it. I just lost 18-17 on pens to Hull in the league cup on fm19. I thought it must have been a bug and they were going to be there for ever!
  10. Has anyone tried to recreate his 3313 formation in fm18?
  11. I decided to leave Leeds at end of season 4 to join Bayern Munich. Jose’s Man U kept pipping me to the title, so I moved on and Brendan Rodgers replaced me. I had a good squad and he changed the formation and topped the table for most of the season and then in a very Leeds way, they ended up finishing 4th. In Germany I overhauled the squad, sold off some legends on mega wages (£250-300k per week) and ended up spending circa £350m with the cash raised. We won the league by miles, but got beat by Wolsberg in the cup (my fault for playing kids) and then Jose dumped me out of the CL quarter finals 3-2 on aggregate. A 2-0 loss at OT was the downfall and despite moving to Germany he is still haunting me! The end of the season has arrived and Man City have just sacked their manager and offered me the job with a £236m kitty. They finished 8th and the squad looks ok, but not great. Saved the game to give me some thinking time! Real Madrid look very likely to sack their manager so I am tempted to hold out for them and a do a tour of the great clubs! Other option is i could stay at Bayern and try and win the CL. I have Neuer and Lewandowski to replace- both declining and very expensive squad players next season (both £250k pw).
  12. Pinamonti (italian young player from inter milan) is decent on my game. Scores more goals for me than Cutrone.
  13. Decision time... end of season 4 and just been offered the Bayern job with a transfer budget of £161m and wage budget of £4.5m pw. Just won the FA cup and apart from qualifying for champs league twice my only other "success" was losing in another FA cup final and losing in UEFA cup final on pens. Stay or go?
  14. Happened on my game too but i chose not to sign him.
