    Beta Tactical Changes/Issues

    Another thing I have noticed - when you put on the TI play out defence, if you click on one of your defenders PI's his passing meter hasn't moved. In FM18 it showed his passing range getting smaller.

    Ball winning midfielder doesn't have max closing down locked in anymore as it did in FM18...surely that's the whole point of a BWM

    Team Shape? - FM19

    Sort of yeah but really it's not even worth comparing. In FM18 it was about redistributing the mentality between the players. In FM19 it's just a useless label. I'd recommend paying no attention to it in FM19. Just focus on the roles and duties and make sure they're doing what you want.

    FM18: Arsenal - Victoria Concordia Crescit

    you already have a perfect midfielder 3: Xhaka - deep lying playmaker Torreira - Ball winner Ramsey - Box to box/attacking playmaker Guendozi, Maitland Niles and Elneny can rotate in. Or you can play 4231 when you don't want to use 3 mids. Ozil or Ramsey number 10, Aubamayeng/Mkhitaryan/Iwobi/Smith-Rowe on the wings.

    FM18: Arsenal - Victoria Concordia Crescit

    renew Ramsey's contract then.
  6. It's well reported that Ramsey was after very high wages and that's why the contract is now off the table for him irl. In game he only asks for £150k per week. The reports are he was asking for closer to £250k per week. Also his value seems a bit low @£26m. There are reports that United made a bid of £50m in the Summer window. In any case you would have expected him to go for atleast £30-35m in the Summer.

    [ENGLAND] Premier Division Data Issues

    He had a period of bad form yeah. But in his last 6 league appearance he managed 5 goals and an assist. Also got 3 goals in Arsenal's last 4 Europa League games. Has been Arsenal's best player this season by far aswell. On the attributes my big concern is work rate. It looks very inaccurate to me. How about this suggestion: Work rate +3 to 14. Crossing -1 to 10 Bravery -1 to 13 Natural Fitness -1 to 14. That should leave his CA the same.

    fair call. I want to sell him anyway when I start my Gunners save.

    Everton's Gylfi Sigurdsson looks a bit underrated to me - Decisions, Off the ball and vision all just 13. Would've thought at least a point higher for each.

    [ENGLAND] Premier Division Data Issues

    I'll focus on the main ones I disagree with: Work rate - 14 minimum imo. Ask any Lyon fan and they'll say he pressed like a madman. Especially under Emery he presses hard. Wenger didn't give him any instructions on defending (Lacazette said this once in an interview) but even then you would regularly see him track back deep into Arsenal's half to put in a challenge. Determination - 13 or 14. He was around 14/15 in the previous game and not sure why he got downgraded so much. He is willing to fight for his place in the team and generally has a very strong character. Passing - 13 or 14. Lacazette is known for his link play and is capable of pulling off some wonderful passes (for example his backheel assist for Ozil against Liverpool last season) Not easy to suggest a downgrade but perhaps bravery could be one less and so could crossing. Edit: Given his injury troubles last season, natural fitness could viably be downgraded to 14.
  11. Agreed. The changes are good for people who were useless at tactics. Not so much for people who had an idea what they were doing. Infact, I'm finding tactics a lot more confusing now (but that's also largely due to the poor UI).

    not sure what's going on with the Arsenal data. Another example I have is Ramsey - finishing 11?! That's his biggest asset apart from off the ball movement.

    [ENGLAND] Premier Division Data Issues

    Lacazette's stats are very poorly underrated imo. Dribbling 14 Finishing 15 First touch 15 Long shots 12 Passing 12 (!) Composure 15 Determination 12(!!) Work Rate 11(!!!) This one is unbelievable. His work rate is known to be one of his greatest assets and was rated much higher in previous versions. This is a big concern. Agility 15 Balance 15

    Your Beta Save for FM19

    With all the changes to the game, decided to go for a big club instead of the likes of Everton/West Ham I was considering. Barcelona were my pick. Enjoying it so far but was getting a crazy amount of injuries and am still having trouble with players fitness despite rotating the squad a reasonable amount. Alba damaged his achilles tendon after only 1 league game. Coutinho tore his calf muscle after 2 league games. Messi got a couple of knocks before then breaking his ankle. Only made 5 league appearances. Despite all this, unbeaten including friendlies and sitting top of the league after 11 games and still waiting for those 3 players to return. Only conceded 1 goal in the league! Also sitting top of the CL group (relatively easy group though). The Alba injury occurred just after the transfer window closed and I hadn't signed a back up left back. I put my faith in this youngster who has been brilliant:
