  1. Having read through this thread,I'm quite looking forward to this response
  2. Why would they be doing the same job when PPM's could make them completely different players.
  3. They've been tracking him for 2/3 years bidding every transfer window but the news item always has him "not interested in a move". Thank God,although it took me a little while to hit the reject button
  4. Biggest transfer offer ever received, rejected of course.
  5. I've settled on the 4141 formation as I just didn't feel defensively stable enough using 433(1 DM). The results have been phenomenal but the possession stats are pretty poor ranging from just over 40% to at most 55% Here is a typical victory, 4-0 home win over Liverpool 42% of the ball but we absolutely dominated the game. As you can see they had most of the ball in there half. I'm almost there in terms of how we're playing but i want to control the ball a bit more without losing our goal threat, so keeping our 4141 shape what can i change to up the possession stats
  6. What you see on the tactic screen is your defensive positioning. If you drop to 442 with wingers on attack you'll still get the shape you're looking for plus a bit of defensive stability.
  7. Thanks for the response,I'm on positive mentality but i can't increase the pressing intensity of my advanced players?Does that mean you instruct them to man mark opposition players? Or is there a way to increase pressing intensity?
  8. I think you'll get ripped apart with those roles and duties, 2 attacking fullbacks with 2 forward thinking midfielders leaves just the DM to cover almost the entire defending half of the pitch. Look to balance the roles, ie, the attacking full back with a cm(s) and a fullback/wingback on support with a runner in midfield.
  9. Can you explain the reason for this please?This is where i come unstuck!!I would have thought if you were playing an attacking system/style of play you would want to win the ball as high up the pitch as possible and would therefore use a higher LOE. Is the standard LOE so that you have more space behind the opposition defence when/if you win the ball, would you then have counter in the transition phase?
  10. I don't really believe in PI's.I prefer to work with PPM's.I am trying him as Complete Forward on support but i am going against my non playmaker rule and have changed the Mezalla to Advanced Playmaker.As we're promoting slow build up play we still need a little unpredictability so the introduction of the playmaker will hopefully provide a bit more attacking thrust.Not that we're goal shy, we managed 104 in the league last season and Haaland finished with 33 in 44 games with a 6 week injury in there too.
  11. Here's my attempt at this formation/tactic. It produces the most amazing football, the half back is probably my most favourite role which helps to combat teams that try to gegenpress, we play out from the back with either the centrebacks starting moves or the keeper finding the halfback, the non use of playmakers in midfield is an absolute must as we want to work the ball forward as often as possible and use the overloads especially down the left flank.As a result my AMR is having a cracking goalscoring season My go to AMR is Mason Greenwood. 18 goals in 31 games .The most pleasing aspect is the variety of goalsBalls played through the middle (yes central play) where he cuts inside between central defender and full back and my favourite when play is focused down the left due to the overload and the mezalla will find him one on one with the left fullback and find him with a ball over the top for a volley or a ground pass inside the full back. The forward is my only concern.Haaland has 24 in 33 in all comps but i'm not entirely sure how to play him.Below is the heat map of our last game against Leicester He played as an Advanced Forward in this game and had 5 attempts,2 missed headers and 3 shots saved by the keeper, I felt like he should have scored all 5 so i might persist with him in this role, he was definitely heavily involved throughout.
  12. Fantastic 22/23 season winning the league,Carabao Cup,FA Cup and Champions League. TRANSFERS The biggest transfer was obviously Haaland and he had a very good goalscoring season but the best bit of business was Ramsdale from Sheff United and he is now my 1st choice keeper.Barbosa was a no brainer with his ability to play either up front or out on the right hand side.Yunus Musah is an absolute gem able to play anywhere on the right hand side including right back, Florentino Luis is perfect as a Defensive mid or central midfield and Benoit Badiashile was a solid buy in defence who also bagged 17 goals in all comps. LEAGUE TABLE Not as cut and dry as it looks as Liverpool just would not go away but we had them in the run in alongside a double header in the Champions League semis and that's when we put some ground between us.Below is the league run in where the big games just kept on coming including a league double header with City The most pleasing result was actually the goalless draw in Madrid as we kept them at arms reach for 90 minutes. TACTIC First 2 seasons of this save we played 4231 but I wanted to be harder to score against so decided to go with this formation and i'm really enjoying the football.I'm shying away from using playmakers as they tend to ping the ball all over the place.With these roles and duties we are now passing the ball around the pitch and creating some lovely goalscoring chances.. SEASON 23/24 first signing of the new season is in, Allesandro Bastoni, a left footed centre back who is going to slot straight in next to Ben Godfrey. I'm looking to buy one more player, a creative AML, Sancho looks like he is on his way to Chelsea, possibly Bellingham but i don't know if he will have an immediate impact on the team,I have Hannibal who has been on loan for 2 seasons and has developed really nicely so i may retrain him to AML if i can't find a really classy winger/playmaker.
  13. How do you set up your formation?I'm going to change my 4231 but i'm not sure what roles to give my midfield 3.
  14. Well i've started a new save as my beta save continued into the full game had the fixture bug.I thought i'd be ok with it but into season 4 having to play Liverpool away twice in the league again finally convinced me to reload and start a new save. Nice balanced 4231.Pogba normally has the central playmaking role but he has had 2 seperate 6 week injuries in the 1st half of the season .I started with him as RPM but both he and his midfield partner start to deep so DLP is the main playmaking role although i'm not 100% convinced that's the ideal role for either him or Bruno. Plenty of transfers were done before i took over,these were mine once i took over. Camavinga and Mendes are no brainers,£80m for Camavinga included installments as did Mendes but the others were all upfront.Barrenetxea has been absolutely brilliant,A cheaper alternative to the Sancho's of this world and 4 star potential.Milik was available for the silly price of £7.5m, I just couldn't pass up an opportunity like that especially with his traits "plays with back to goal" and "plays one two's".The other lad Chotard was bought in to cover for Pogba and only 19 has plenty of development ahead of him. We've had a very good start to the season only drawing 1 league game at home to Newcastle. The champions league has gone down to the last game in the group stage, we sit in 3rd place and have to beat Celtic at Old Trafford to progress. Finally the only part of the game that irritates the you know what out of me. It's a bit hard to sign high profile players when you only have £60m as a starting budget plus sign English players(who cost a bomb anyway)whilst also buying youngsters for the future and develop kids in the youth system. I know not all of them are required but isn't it a little bit of overkill? Anyway away to Leicester next and then Celtic at home in the Champions League.
  15. Is that your beta save carried on to the full game?it won't sort itself out
  16. Is anyone still playing with the same save game from the beta?the fixture list is fecked. Season 4 and I'm playing Liverpool away twice in the league. Looks like I'm going to have to start a new save. That's really annoying because I've got a really good squad build.
  17. If I was to buy him I'd think about retraining him to the fullback position. He has good defensive stats and is obviously very good at going forward. You then have a versatile player in your squad.
  18. Drop down to balanced, you'll move the ball around nicely until an opening appears,
  19. If he's a regular starter while he's out on loan he'll develop, the when he comes back start playing him. I've done the same with Hannibal and now he's ready for the 1st team so much so i've accepted a £79m bid from R.Madrid for 30 year old Pogba.
  20. He's been out on loan for 2 seasons, he has a very negative attitude in my save which is a real put off.
  21. Odegaard cost £120m, not all upfront, 80 + 40 in addons, i bought him at the start of season 3.Once again there is no realism in transfer costs.That is the City Garcia at centre-back, he alongside Badiashile are a fantastic pairing with Mengi and now Kambwala as rotation when one of them needs a rest for the start of season 4
