  1. he must certainly be a great character since Morata and co praised him in public. Never seen that before. Who gonna replace Florentino, is it someone from the conveyor belt?
  2. When inheriting a useless squad, playing Generic Football is usually the best bet.
  3. thank you all for the insightful replies. Yes I'm trying to play possession football still. And I'm still a firm believer that a lone striker without a AMC man behind him should be on support. He would be looking for CM-A yes, also the both wide players since Winger gets into the box when played at AM Strata. If Sir Alex or Wenger had started their managerial careers in the turbulent times of Modern Football, they wouldnt have lasted that long. Just look at Darren Moore at West Bromwich for example. Quite similar situation than where I am at the moment. First season after relegation, 4th place in the standings, sacked after a draw. Already made some shrewd signings, also some Croatian mafioso's took over the club, cant wait for the summer transfer window to open. I agree that patience is the key, hope the new board feel the same way.. Yes that Rashidi stuff is wonderful. I am a keen admirer or Pep Guardiola, in my opinion his Barcelona side is the greatest ever team I've ever seen play Football. However, I don't really get the inverted wingback thing. Maybe I'm too old fashioned but I want my fullbacks to stay near the touchline and provide some width.
  4. Thank you for the feedback. Somethings still missing if we are leaking goals like a sieve, night in night out. 5 goals in one match is unacceptable, in real life they would have sacked me already. With a massive club like Sunderland, I am expecting to at least try to win every single match.
  5. As the late great Nelson Mandela said. I never lose, I win or learn. In this case it is more like I never win, I lose or learn. Been managing Sunderland, because of the fantastic Sunderland til I die series. And the football has been atrocious. Just got decapitated by Reading of all teams. Final result 5-1, PKM should be attached. Got some inspiration from this thread https://community.sigames.com/topic/367318-tactical-development-at-aston-villa/ Maybe I should be playing 4231 instead since every other team seems to play it - the 2 DMC men could mitigate the opposition threat. Or then again, maybe not.. And as the great Cleon himself said, don't concentrate on the opposition. How to keep it simple ? Pkm.pkm
  6. somehow missed the entire Page 2. better late than never though. Maxi Gomez as complete you can possibly be.
  7. as Zlatanera says, the players are really important for this kind of system. Who are you starting these days besides Zivkovic and Zabaleta ? I'm especially interested about the Complete Forward Attack role, is it Arnautovic still ?
  8. I hope next step is Ö-zil to the Barcelona! on the side note, what kind of players did you use with the B Team in the Structured Control system. been using it with semi good success at Cambridge United.
  9. as far as I recall, yes. Everything's been tried with no success. Too bad he also has a casual approach to training and is regressing. Such a shame to see a promising youngster wasting his talent like this
  10. First of all, I apologize for asking a outdated question. I have been informed that Tutoring no longer exists in Football Manager. But I'm still with Fm2018 and Cambridge United. I have this great youth prospect Leon Davies, who could become a world beater with proper tutoring. The problem is. He don't wanna be tutored. In Squad Dynamics he is listed a "rival" of me, probably because i have been suggesting tutoring so many times and he always rejected it. Is there anything to do any more or should I just give up and release him ?
  11. that indeed is very insightful, have read it many times before. The point is, I have a clear plan in my mind but can't translate it to Fm terms. I wanna smash the league with possessional football like Swansea City did back in the day: http://www.haugstadfootball.net/2011/05/31/swans-success-down-to-martinez-legacy/
  12. I think because of support duties and shorter passing. The crossing roles are there because of some variety. All of them guides say you shouldnt be one dimensional. After all, I want good penetrative possession, not posssession for the sake of it.
  13. i believe so, yes. Semi ok technical and mental stats all over the board. they indeed are quite static. I tried to put together some logical roles so that the tactic would be multi-dimensional. Winger staying wide so the cm-attack would have the space. Inside forward cutting inside and left back going forward. DLP playmaker holding position because of the overlapping leftback. Been trying false9. The problem is, nobody is really suited for that role. They end up dribbling and losing the ball or hoofing longshots. Box to box midfielder, thats a very demanding role. Should probably try it at some point instead of the cm attack, but then I should up the mentality to Control at least I guess? Do Wingbacks create more width than Fullbacks ? if that's the case, I should definitely try using wingbacks.
