  1. Thanks crusadertsar how are you finding Porto tactics in your game?
  2. Thanks for the comments it's just the first time I've ever used someone's else tactical thoughts although I'm still using the basic principles I look for in my players If I survived this season I'll probably go back to my way of playing just nice to get people's thoughts
  3. Hi so I've posted on here over the last couple of days about all the problems I've had in Spain with my Marbella side and it's been fantastic all the help I have received so many thanks for that. Now I should be really happy because I was reading someone's take on Porto side from around the 04/05 season and implemented that into my side and it has worked wonders and we have pulled away from the relegation zone. Now I'm not enjoying the save as I'm feeling that I'm cheating by using someone's else's ideas so the question is should I stay true to my beliefs and probably get relegated or should I stick with the fact that I've found a formula even though it's not my ideas so what would you do stick or twist and has anyone else been in this situation?
  4. Thanks for the tip I will definitely look into that I'm normally use players on loan from the premiership in England and have got some good loans from Ajax but usually wages are quite high
  5. Thanks Chief I'm tending to agree with you as I've used 4-1-4-1 before when I've won promotion to the top flight and never struggled like this The problem I have is the board is being really tight with the money and all though we have 34 million in the bank they have only given me 3 million to spend on transfers and secondly we don't have a great reputation to attract better players
  6. Hi I tried going 4-4-2 as I thought when I got promoted it would be safer playing with with 2 banks of 4 hitting teams on the break knowing our strikers would score enough just to keep us up. first 2 games went really well won 2-0 and lost 3-2 against Barcelona but then lost the next 2 4-0 and 6-0 so we're getting outplayed all over the park so went more defensive with one up top and 1 dm but nothing is working and now I'm trying all sort of things with no real reason just hoping something sticks. On a side note just played 3 friendlys against teams in the same division with the same tactics and same players and just won 3-0,3-1 and drew 0-0 sometimes just don't get the game
  7. Hi to be fair I'm conceding goals all over the pitch as I conceded 100 in our first season in the top flight and it's a real suprise as I've always done quite well over the years and never been relegated and I always start with Bristol City and lower league sides. No matter what I try and I've taken lots of advice I still can't find a way to stop the goals. I think it is the players rather than the tactic as on my team report comparison page were bottom on everything

  9. Hi Experienced Defender I tried to play a lower line of engagement with 2 solid banks of 4 and standard pressing but the opposition were pigging the ball all over the park and were walking right through my midfield. I played short passing as even on standard the amount of passes we gave away were ridiculous and as we were conceding to many goals I didn't want to just give away possession I know trying to be defensive with a high defensive line is counter productive but funny enough we looked more compact
  10. So not to start a conspiracy theory but this is ridiculous One win in 25 just playing a friendly against a team in the same league with the same players same tactics and you guess it 3-0 up at half time when for the last 25 games my team didn't even know where the goal was
  11. hi experienced defender what do you mean my playing style isn't defined?
  12. Hi thanks for your reply I agree with your assessment of my players I was thinking it was my tactic but I'm resigned to the fact with only 2 million to spend I just haven't got the resources to improve the squad and even Kalas isn't that good. No matter what I've tried 4-4-1-1 4-5-1 or 4-4-2 just can't stop conceding goals over 100 last season and almost 2 per game this season. PThis is my luck last game 2-1 up with ten minutes to play conceded in the 92 and conceded a 95th min pen I have taken everyone's advice but after playing fm since 05 this is the first time I've struggled this bad 1 win in 25 and this will be my first ever relegation unless someone has a miracle tactic
  13. Hi where would I find that information is it in the analysis screen?
  14. Hi Herne thanks for your advice the coach reports are pretty good nothing major to worry about. After gaining more experience playing fm I make sure I read the reports first sometimes you have to gamble for example when I got promoted I only had 3 million to play with so for defenders I made sure they could tackle good mentals etc but it's tricky trying to get good players for most positions when you only have 3 million to spend
