  1. Hi, please refer to attached screenshot. Click to view the match report does not work on the schedule screen, it's not clickable. I think either the click event is not triggering or the match is not saved at all.
  2. I am not able to view any previous matches in the schedule screen, not even the last one.
  3. Need more test but so far there is improvement as the GKs are not as effective as in FM20. Their goals are fewer and their ratings are lower. That's a good sign.
  4. Your screenshot is showing players not from original Liverpool squad, there must be some transfer done. I would suggest to disable first transfer window. Also, your penalty taker is Milner so you should change to both GKs, it will boost them to perform better after scoring a penalty. Btw, did you play the friendlies too or just holiday? Friendlies should not be holiday or skip too or both GKs will always be substituted and will not have enough game time to gel with the team and will not perform well when the league start. Lastly, your tactic screen is showing different tactic name than m
  5. Save has been submitted to SI, if in game editor was used to make the GKs godly then this thread would not have exists anymore. I hope someone from SI who have analysed the save could comment on this. How did you play out the match? If you holiday, the assistant manager will always substitute both GKs and they will have no chance to perform. Also, which year is this Liverpool in? I notice many players who does not belongs to original Liverpool team. For anyone who are trying or plan to try, I suggest these settings for the optimum environment for the GKs and the team to perform well
  6. My conclusion is the root cause is never the tactic or style, it's individual player's position/role familiarity and key attributes being severely underrated in the player performance calculation (player able to make himself available for chances to occur and able to finish them) and final match result calculation (the team still able to win comfortably with 2 GKs up front). Sure SI could tone down gegenpress but then other style such as tiki taka or counter attack will replace gegenpress as the more effective style and then we will still be able to reproduce this with the new effective s
  7. May I know what is flawed in this experiment and why? Just because certain player roles are not being used?
  8. To be honest, we should focus on why firstly, a GK is able to make himself available for such chances to occur (attributes like anticipation, off the ball and etc), second, why is the GK able to finish those chances (attributes like technique, shooting and etc) in the toughest league. Ben's anticipation 8, off the ball 8, technique 6, penalty taking 3 and his penalty success rate is close to 80% in my test. Gegenpress being effective in FM20 is another topic. In fact, any kind or style of tactic that could create chances can reproduce similar results.
  9. It's downloaded from fm-base but I can't recall exactly which thread now that it's been sometimes and I have downloaded quite a number of tactics there months ago. I'll just put my renamed tactic here for those who are interested. 442 flat gegenpress.fmf
  10. IMO, no tactic should be strong enough to allow 1* GKs score like that in a top league. Besides, even if a tactic could create a lot of chances the player need to have the right abilities to finish it.
  11. Here's the tactical setup for those who are interested. I did not create this tactic it was downloaded from other website and i merely rename it for convenience purpose. It's a pretty good tactic, consistent wins and chances. I believe similar quality tactics should create the same results.
  12. It's fine, not really looking for any fix for FM20 at this point of time. I totally agreed FM lets you do all manner of unrealistic things and that's a fun factor actually. I just hope it could be more within reasonable parameters. I have seen too many low quality players scoring wonder goals in FM20 and that's one of the reason I did this experiment after I read the Phil Jones story.
