  1. I got one once and also got Man united as senior affiliate then my game crashed and it didn't happen again as I hadn't saved it
  2. Do you ever start a save in non-league... Maybe below vanarama north/south. Get to the championship and decide the premier is going to be too much hassle and losing to be enjoyable? Going from nearly playoffs one year to promotion every 2 year in every league then premier league is not as enjoyable because it's a big difference? Probably just me.
  3. When you're a newly promoted team and you start your season well but you know it wont last. Do you just play he same tactic every game or adapt slightly every game? Also if you lose do you just shrug off losses as newly promoted or do something more drastic beyond different line up?
  4. I wish I had your luck with FC United. No is interested in me whilst in the Championship unless I am buying from League Two
  5. Please teach me. I struggle compared to you. I want to understand the game as the more advanced players do. Maybe its players like me that's holding the game back in terms of difficulty but there is zero documentation. A few hints in the UI and relying on forums is not documentation.
  6. I have noticed a boost when I train set pieces, defensive and technical. I accept the opposition teams playing defensive but I wish I knew how to approach those types of games
  7. I have played with stupidly large shortlists. I have found that when you try and remove a large amount of players (5000+) the game stops you from being able to perform any other actions in the mean time whilst the game worked up to consume 8GB of RAM over 10 minutes wait. I have a high spec PC with 32GB RAM, SSD and a powerful processor. Surely It would be best to perform these tasks it's own thread? It consumes loads of memory whilst performing this task. You might be guessing by now I am a developer (not of games). I am talking from the context of FM21. If this has already been improved since FM21 then let me know.
  8. Thanks that worked! You've saved me lots of frustrating extra clicks. I dont know what I did. I did change some thing in preferences not to do with this but I think when using the mouse scroll wheel I must of hovered over that option accidentally while scrolling.
  9. Some how this is now the default screen when I view a player: Instead of: How do I change it back? I dont know what I did.
  10. Every FM, when I get a tactic working well I always notice that we eventually start scoring 3 goals in a game. From then on each game we start scoring less and less: What exactly are these teams doing as I'm gaining form? Preston was only just relegated from the Championship. Both my goals were lucky but from Chesterfield down we start running out of goals. Chesterfield were mid table, Exeter & Shrewsbury are bottom of the table. MK Dons are in the league below yet we created hardly anything. Here is the tactic after recent help on the forums: Depending on how the game is going, I may change the LOE and DL up 1 or 2 together and sometimes I might have the DLF on Attack and try playing passes into space if they are committing their FB's/WB's forward leaving a possible 3v2 or 2v2. Do you have some suggestions for this? I know that streaks end but I would like some ideas to try and resist the drop to zero goals.
  11. What was the inspiration for the Team FM kit? Is it based on another team? Yes I know FM colours is purple but was wondering. It's a nice looking kit.
  12. Malta reminds me of my team struggling in league one. Hardly any chances created
  13. When I think of BPD i think of Rio Ferdinand, Pique etc.... I associate this with dribbling forward to trigger a press from the opposition and free up a team mate to receive the ball. This I believe to be the fact with FM's BPD but the whole defense splitting passes thing looks and sounds to me like a hoof like a No-nonsence CD. Am I completely getting this wrong here?
  14. Would the WP and the DLF not get in eachothers way or be too close together? Thanks. lots to think about. The second screenshot was a mistake (took it after tinkering around). My bad, thought I had removed it.
  15. This tactic was working well in the much lower leagues on FM21. I used to be able to switch between high press or low compact block. The teams in league one seem to expose it. I had success but now i'm doubting it all together. I dont seem to be able to create alot of chances and the chance I do create arent very good. very little clear cut chances. Originally I was using it for possession but I seem to be making drastic changes every game now to even create chances. Some ideas please.
  16. As the title suggests. Which Leagues to turn on to give me a better chance of buying some decent players in a budget?
  17. To the people that find FM easy... Would anyone consider showing me how you play? I do ok but don't find it easy. I always play lower league and can get up to premier League in decent time. Never more than 2 seasons in one league...
  18. So what would you look at if you were struggling against a better or maybe the same level opponent? Let's say the overload is either losing the ball or the unlocked wing is not getting the chances it normally gets in your tactic. I know it's a broad question but it would be great to see some examples of when you need to make changes in game....
  19. I'm counting central defenders and I usually like them to have Anticipation, Acceleration & Pace but cannot always find one with all 3 that I would want to join me. If a defender has high anticipation for my league how much can that negate his lack of pace? I wouldn't be necessarily looking at at 31 year old with 7 pace but want to know if he'll be smart enough to play a high line for example and not get caught out....
