  1. I'm not claiming to be an expert nor would I have much faith in my judgement but I would make a couple of changes off the bat. I'd remove the instructions to distribute to full backs and center backs while having play out of defense, seems a bit of overkill to me. I like my goalkeeper to have the option to still kick it long if its an option, secondly I'd swap the WBa to a WBs being the only player up and down the wing I wouldn't personally want him on an attack duty otherwise he may end up too far up the pitch if a move breaks down leaving the flank exposed Another option could be to swap the side of your MEZ and CAR so that you over load the right hand side with the MEZ and DLF leaving space for your AFa to run into on the other side
  2. Ahh wicked mate, yeah I was reading through it and they where the ones that seemed to keep popping up. I admit I missed off the ball though.
  3. This is such an interesting read, thanks for all the effort you've put in. Are there any attributes you'd consider key for every player to have for the system you've created? Having read through I'd assume you'd go with something along the lines of; First Touch, Dribbling, Determination, Team Work, Work Rate, Natural Fitness I'm just thinking of whether to try and follow a similar system and just thinking in terms of squad building.
  4. You really aren't missing anything worthwhile there pal. The way I see it is using you LoE and passing directness to actually dictate where you want your team to play. So going back to the example I used earlier of Leicester if you had a low LoE and More Direct Passing that would tell your team that you want them to burst in behind the defense (I know theres more needed that that but its a start) where as if you have a High LoE and Shorter Passing you're saying to your team to pass it around in front of the defense.
  5. Makes sense to me, my view on the more direct systems would be dependant on what kind of directness you're wanting. Say if you wanted a longball kind of style ala Tony Pulis you would want the high LoE so that your big striker is closer to the box where as if you are wanting a more burst in behind kind of direct system, ie 2015/16 Leicester, then you would want a Lower LoE for your pacier players to break into behind the defense, I suppose I'm going the long winded way of saying everything is relative? I may be wrong though I don't claim to know for certain
  6. I can't ever seem to get the best out of my players and always seem to be falling out with big players leading to them asking for a transfer so I suppose I would say my Role Model on that front would be Mourinho
  7. You can always go onto the scouting page and search for players by their homegrown clubs (Player Search -> Add Condition -> Home Grown -> By Club -> Choose Club) Its a little labour intensive but if you want to know the players you can probably figure it out that way by searching by either Caps, Value or Reputation and come to a conclusion from there.
  8. Target man run onto ball vs high opposition defensive line?
  9. I'd like a withdrawn target man who plays in the AMC but I think that's only because I have a player I think could do a job doing that, not that it would add anything to the game
  10. Just had a look on my longest term save and checked every players aggression stat and how its developed and not one person's attribute has changed. It should be noted that I haven't intentionally tried to raise anyone's aggression attribute though so take it for what its worth.
  11. I've had some decent success with this tactic, made a few minor tactical changes to fit my team but that aside its working great Thanks @robbo877
  12. Its quite fun and challenging at the same time, just had to spend £8m on a left winger from Hearts to play back up to my first team. Hoping to blood in my youth squad and have about 50% graduates of my youth acadamy by 2021. Just to make things more interesting I think the club got taken over by someone who's actually tighter than that Fat Cockney W*nker!!
  13. I've got a save with any non UK nationals needing a work permit
  14. Hey guys, I'm coming up to the January window in my first season as Newcastle United and I'm looking for some suggestions for a striker to lead my line akin to the likes of Shearer. Obviously not on that level with the budget I've got but someone thats good all round and will do a decent job in the Premier League. Mitrovic is scoring albeit inconsistently, Gayle is always injured and Joselu couldn't hit a barn door with a shotgun!! As for budget I've got around £10m and £70k wages, but if someone get suggested I may try and ship off Joselu for whatever I can, possibly £6m?
