  1. I could get Clarke to score and assist from Aml as IF but could never get a high rating from him. Did u have him as mar WA all season. Looks well adjusted to the role
  2. He was a banker for leeds for the last few years.... Might have to think now... Doh!
  3. Agree- can definitely sign better players once promotion confirmed, you don't have to wait until you actually change leagues. Some players running contracts down and leaving on a free change from "not a good career move" to opening negotiations. Are they doing that because of the league/stature of club....I don't know. Could be because they believe you can now meet their financial demands which you couldn't previously...
  4. 1st season won Championship with 100+ points, 1 transfer in only (Marin) 2nd season i was 3rd, just two points behind Liverpool and Man city. City won on gd. We won Caribou Cup. 3rd season in Feb still have Pearce, Elioski, Coyle, Jannson, Ideguchi, Phillips, Clarke, Klich, Roofe, BPF and Shakleton are in 1st team squad still. Couldnt develop Dalby and Edmondson tho. Too few games to give them all time!
  5. 4141, geggenpress preset. Full backs on attack, inverted wingers on attack and the striker as dlf s. Any variant of bwm dlp and ap have worked for the midfield 3 for me. Keep trying!
  6. Plenty of kids to bring through in Coyle, Clarke, Shakleton and Edmondson. Ive got to prem and maxed my Training facilities, youth recruitment etc but avg only 1 player each intake at 3.5 stars or higher&most of those are 3.5. On one intake i got my first 5 star newgen striker with no determination, workrate and developed fairly unsporting as a character trait. Doh.
  7. As a striker or inside forward? Im gonna start a new save with just homegrown and stolen newgens on compensation only.... Shackleton???
  8. Viera was great at being "safe' last yeat. When news of Bielsa joining leeds broke out i immediately assumed Viera was in for the cm playing as cb that Bielsa often deploys. Irl last season he was nursed through tendonitis in his knees but marshalled the midfield wellif he gets game time the move is a great one for him. I really hope he doesnt become a Mowatt
  9. Ive found inverted wingers and overlapping fb on this formation to be extremely effective. Even witht the fast transitions into attack my fb both achieved 15 assists with only 2 little iw and a dlf s anywhere near the box. Tbh~almost overpowered! Only team instructions i changed were adding overlaps on both sides and reducing line of engagement by 1 notch as my dlf was never really getting much help in the press until the opposition was out of their defensive third. Lots of pi to iw and dlf to make them retain the ball better to allow fb to move through midfield. Iw runs into 18 yd box without ball creating a surprisingly narrow front 3 Oposition fb narrows to cover. My fb reacts faster than opposition wide mids,runs into empty wing unchallenged and crosses for a 3 against 4. Really simple but love watching it!
  10. In a Leeds save I use 4141 with ap a and dlp d in the cm positions. The different duties put more space between the two than 1 on support but that only really becomes obvious in 2nd or 3rd attacking phases as the whole team moves forwards into its attacking shape. I started with ap a and dlp s with a bwm in dm strata but found the two cms default to ping~pong between eachother due to their passing/general quality limitations. As my save progressed and players get better they play more as i hoped.the ap a fills the #10 space more often. And my dlp d is always open to recieve the ball. Think about the players herne mentioned and how the best ap and dlp of history could play together. Ive still not experimented with an ap in a wide position but the distance that would create between the two would help avoid the ping~pong too i expect?
  11. Found 4141 with geggenpress v strong. Cooper and Jannson scored 10+ goals in Championship and first year in prem. Added look for overlap, and dropped line of engagement by 1 notch. Opposition instructions showed every opposition player into centre of pitch. Promoted 2nd with very few signings. Plenty of game time for hi~potential youngsters like Roberts, Clarke, Shakleton etc Sk A BPF/ FB A Douglas BPD D Cooper BPD D Jannson FB A Ayling IW A Roofe/Brown AP A Saiz DLP D Klich IW A Harrison/Ezszszjjjjaaaaaneeeer Elllehossski BWM (DM) D Philips DLF S Bamford
  12. Does the game nerf the 19 passing with poor technique, composure or vision?
  13. 2nd season and we slip into the Champions League places plenty of points behind the others. Look at Leicester There's definitely some weakness in the set pieces in this ME. Pontus and Cooper come up for every throw, corner and free kick but neither are 10 goal a year boys... If I secure a Euro place in any competition the squad is looking very lightweight.
