  1. Good positioning and anticipation could be a factor. The wing back may be finding himself in good positions to make a tackle most of the time.
  2. Wow that's impressive by AI. What's their formation and manager's tactical preferences?
  3. Are there more injuries, fitness drop or some kind of penalty for using gegenpressing 24x7 in FM21 though?
  4. Are these observations from friendly or early season matches? Because if that's the case, then lack of team cohesion might me affecting the decision making of the players.
  5. Wow.. 71% find it too easy. Can't be a coincidence. Count me in 'too easy' camp as well.
  6. Are there any new player roles or changes to existing player roles this year?
  7. I like to manage mid to low table teams with ambitious to qualify for Europe in few years time. Any suggestions from Bundesliga, Serie A or La Liga?
  8. Play them on support but increase the team mentality so they have higher individual mentality even on support. Balance roles of other players accordingly so that you are still defensive overall. Also have less aggressive team instructions. For e.g. lower DL, lower LOE, less urgent pressing etc..
  9. Thanks for all the responses so far. One more observation regarding their tactics- they foul a lot but they don't go to ground while making tackles, so definitely no 'Get stuck in' instruction required. It simply means they apply intense pressure on the ball and get really tight while doing so, hence high amount of fouls. In FM terms this means very high intensity pressing TI. Basically their style is to use pressing as a defensive strategy rather than wanting to win the ball back to play their game.
  10. Has anyone able to recreate Jose Bordalas' Getafe tactics in FM20? Basically his tactics has these elements: Defending: - Always 4-4-2 shape. - Extremely narrow and compact shape (both horizontally and vertically) while defending and attacking both. They just never lose their shape. - Ball oriented pressing. - Not allowing opponents to play their game. Disrupting the flow at every opportunity by applying constant pressure on the ball (not the men). - Keep opponent away from their 18 yard box as much as possible. - Lots of fouls. Due to extremely aggr
  11. Your players take time adjusting to your tactical changes. Once they are familiar, they will be more responsive to your changes even on 'Much higher defensive line'. Not that it matters to you but look at Mourinho and Tottenham combination in real life at the moment.
  12. I don't have any problem with the same setup as yours so you must be doing something wrong tactically.
  13. I have seen my CBs play well inside opposition half so that statement in bold is blatantly incorrect.
  14. A hotfix is for a game breaking bug. There is no game breaking bug in the ME at the moment, hence no 'hotfix'. There may be a 'patch' but only SI knows.
  15. What's disappointing and unrealistic to see is Man United in the top 4 in almost everyone's save I have seen so far. Oh and just noticed they finished above Liverpool as well. What the actual fark? I'm not surprised to see Wolves doing a Leicester in the game tbh. They are a very good team irl managed by a very good coach.
