  1. I find it much more interesting, that they only reflect a players familiarity with a given role. It's much more realistic this way (or at least that's how I see it). I find it so interesting and inspiring to closely examine each players attributes and let them explore new (maybe better fitting) roles. In real life there are so many examples of this as well. Di Maria was utilized as a central playmaker after being a winger for many many years. Ramos from right back to central defender. Pirlo from a second striker/offensive playmaker to a deeplying playmaker. In the danish Superligaen, t
  2. I have never noticed reports having their roles and team mentality on. Is this just in a standard team scouting report? Or is it some custom skin?
  3. Have you tried a DLP(d) with the PPM Runs With Ball Often?
  4. I find this setup quite interesting. Now I actually just watched BTN video on Overloads. So the theory here, is that the overloading side is on attack in order to draw defenders and midfielders out of position in order to make room for the right side attacking the empty space. Now this is done with midfielders on attack duty. So im curious to see how well supporting roles can/will do the same thing. Are defenders really going to be threatened and leave their position against a DLP and WM on support? Have you actually tried this, or is it just theory crafting? If you haven't I mig
  5. Are you guys actually buying who fits in with the rest of the team/tactic when you set up the game. Or are you just looking for great bargains/wonderkids? Nothing wrong with either, simply just curious.
  6. I actually tried doing it as well, inspired by this exact video. I do feel that you kind of have to pick one of many different variations that Guardiola opts for, since he's trying a lot of different things. (At least that's how i see it) For me i tried focusing on the widespread wingers, with inverted backs. Didn't get to work with it enough for me to be satisfied. I did play with a much weaker team, and it seemed that having 2 inverted backs kinda flooded the midspace too much, making my midfielders lose a lot of balls due to the lack of time and space. I do however feel that the in
  7. I've always been a big fan of this kind of thinking. Not in terms of actual tactical changes as such, which in my past games has been limited to different forward types mostly. What i have been doing, is kind of the approach that Bielsa or Guardiola takes. Using midfielders as centerbacks, because they're often suited better for carrying the ball forward, or passing past the first lines of pressure. Or using defensive minded midfielders as wingbacks or even fullbacks, which is probably my most used example in not just fm18, but many previous years. I will most surely try to have a li
  8. Yet another update on how things are going. As of now im halfway into the new season, having played 23 games in the league. During the summerbreak, i brought in 4 (5) new faces for the first team. Only one real contender for the starting-11 though. Since the season in Championship is filled with matches, the rest was providing some width, so a otherwise very small squad. To just share one of them with you, this was the only guy i actually didn't put a bid on myself. I favor having the DoF looking for good youth players, and this time he really hit a hole-in-one!

  9. Alright, so just a quick visual example of how one my attacks were setup. Of course this attack is handpicked, to show the idea of what my tactic aims to achieve. (From the new season) So we just retrieved the ball back, due to two things. First off, great placement from my fullback, winning the air ball back. And secondly, a great run back from my AM to both cut off the opposition passing options, as well as placing him self, giving an extra out for the fullback. Now turning the play around, he makes a short pass for my deeplaying playmaker, and instantly starts running up the field to
  10. How are these tactics getting tested? Are you actually playing out the season, or is it a simulation?
  11. Well the AP(s), actually doesn't encourage dribling, and watching the games i haven't seen this as being a thing. That being said, it's a good point and i'm definietly going to try him as a deeplying on support duty. I do feel like he should be told to do more risky passes though, but only time will tell i guess! Now my reasoning for not picking a CM(d) (i did consider it!), is the default PI of close down more. In general this actually confuses me a lot, that its linked to this role, but never the less, that's why i want to avoid it. I completely agree with the shadowstrike
