  1. I've said it before but it's almost as if the players don't realize that they are in a team. As if they are only focused on their specific task and position. The times i've just seen my wide players pick up the ball around the center of the pitch and run for ever and then shoot from a impossible angle. I've come to a point where i blame losses more to strange ME behavior then my bad management. And i've had succes with this ME even, but then still it's not really rewarding because i can't seem to get the team to play like i want them to. Really a shame bacause i really like almost every other aspect of the game. Things like club vision and de development center are brilliant. It was really rewarding to see a youngster progress and work its way into the first team.
  2. I don't think anyone will disagree that. What bothers me most is the amount of them, always pin point accurate and my defenders reacting way to late. It's al about balance and I think it's just not right now.
  3. Doing ok. Mostly minor 1-3days injuries but he has broken a rib last season and his toe the year before. Needs to drink more milk
  4. Nice story! Camavinga is an absolute beast in my current save. Started at Lyon where i got him for 21M or so. Helped me win the title in my 5th year there. I moved to Atletico Madrid. Immediately signed him (for 91M) and he helped me win La Liga in my first season. In my 3rd season there, Man City bought him because of his 115M release clause. After three years of Atletico i moved to Tottenham. Just done my 1st year. Finished 3rd, while City where 5th. Unhappy about not playing CL i bought him again with Spurs.
  5. This is exactly how i feel right now. I was playing a slow passing, build up from the back tactic before the last ME update and while it had it's problems (IF/W's just running and shooting into the side netting) i saw that style on the pitch. After the update i stayed with that tactic for a while and every game my biggest chances are from CB's passing it to the forwards, who then miss the 1-on-1. I have had a bit more succes by turning of most of the "in transitions" options like press and counter. Other things that really annoy me is that, even with "dribble less" they run far to much with the ball. My attacking winger will pick up the ball on our own half and just run for days, ignoring anyone around him and shoot from an impossible angle. Not helping that more often then not, my CF will stop running half way up the pitch only to pick up the pace when it's already to late. In general i think that my biggest problem is that it seems like players forget that they are in a team. Hardly ever will they look for support or hold up play when they clearly should realize that going on alone will not work. It's like every player has a -1 intelligence.
  6. Just wanted to say that this is a great skin. Tried almost every skin there is but I keep coming back to this one. Great work.
  7. Think you're onto something here and also something i'm still learning. It's not to think of a shape but to think of the shape in different phases of play. On the attack your shape will be so different from when your defending or in a more neutral phase of play.
  8. Working for me but i added the skin in a fresh .zip file: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1u3K49AMv2gXAUKvGcPpy7U2XYY9Ojm_O Hopefully that will work for you.
  9. Like almost every year started with Ajax to get to know the game. Won the Eredivisie the first two years and now just started my third season. Mateo Cassierra has been a real surprise for me. Really challenging Dolberg and now in my third season he's my CF while Dolberg is the IF on the left. In terms of youngsters only Victor Jensen had really gained a rotation spot and starting more games now. Some other players like Ekkelenkamp, Nunnely and Eiting have had a chance but are just not good enough in my system (4-2-3-1 with two DM's). For the defenders i bought some South American players since i this the talents are just not good enough.
  10. True, but if and injured player isn't on the pitch, does that mean that he is subbed or is he (juts by the rules) still in the line-up? Do the football rules say that a injured player who leave the pitch isn't in the line-up anymore? Or could an injured player in theory return to the pitch any time after he left the pitch injured, but isn't subbed (because you already made all subs available at that time)?
  11. Been trying to get this system to work (2026/27 season, 2nd Bundesliga 1FC Nurnberg) and it seems to work to a certain degree. In most matches i get most possession, most shots and most on target and most clear cut chances. Still not winning enough tho. After 19 games i'm only 5W-6D-8L. Most of my problems come from the fact that i don't really get the chance to press high up. When we lose the ball in their 3rd they just punt it forward and you get those 50/50 balls. When the team then settles i do see them press hard, but not in the way i want. It seems like most of the time i get two of my midfielders pressing the same opposite player and thus always leaving one man open. What i would like to see is one men pressing and two stepping into the passing lanes. Quite like you describe how the tactic should work. There isn't really a PI for this so does that all come down to poor OTB? I Have my midfielders set up als CM-s - AP-AT - CM-S with only the AP Close Down More. Should i perhaps make a TI with Close Down Less so that only players with the Close Down PI do the closing down?
  12. I'm still learning how to create tactics but from what i've read i think it's like this. When on attacking mentality you're not really telling your players to play more attacking, you're telling them to take more risk. So with a slightly deeper defensive line you give your defenders more space and because they take more risk on attacking you're telling your players that it's ok to, as soon as you have the ball, just play it long and your attacking players will try more forward runs. I've been reading the "The Torino Diaries" topic and trying to adapt that high pressing vision i have created a tactic on defensive mentality that will generally create more chances, shot's on target and possession then the opponent. I suggest you give that topic a read because it completely changed how my view on mentalities and how they work in FM.
  13. Probably the best way to play. Might start doing this because i'm getting frustrated of not knowing where things go wrong or ways to fix them. Downloading a tactic and hoping it works isn't really playing this game the right way.
