  1. So I came across a post on FM-Base where every single comment (over 100 of them) says the match engine of FM20 is... well the the worst they've seen, and by a country mile. I know there are always a few chaps that aren't happy, of course. But these comments also include the Admin of that site, and they seem pretty damn vocal and unanimous. Just wanted to see if that was a bandwagon, getting all carried away, or is this wider a consensus? I don't have lots of money so wondered if I should I skip this one and carry on playing FM19? Cheers.
  2. I have a young player who is has a full green circle in the AML position as winger. However, this same player, when I play them in the ML position, and set the role as Winger (Attack), they have the slither of red. Is he playing out of position? I know playing out of position carries a penalty. Should I retrain him? Or just leave him be? What are the pros/cons of different strategies of getting him to be a fully effective ML winger?
  3. If you use either of these roles in your tactics, which do you prefer and why?
  4. This is my experience also. Which means you are only adding to a player's training intensity for nothing.
  5. In FM2018 it was very rare (I found) for position retraining ever to have much success. Should I just ignore the suitability colour circle in favor of attributes only? For example a number of my CMs are "incompetent" as DMs, despite clearly having the necessary attributes. Should I just be ignoring that? Or supplementing individual training with position retraining?
  6. If teams regularly have 0 shots, what exactly are you countering? How do you play counter attacking football if you're also the unopposed super team? Wouldn't this imply possession football and the complete control/domination of games?
  7. Do you think it would matter much if I changed one of the wingers to an inverted winger? I love the 442 but I have two quality left-footed wingers and I would like to play them both. :/
  8. Do you mean easy to defend against? I'm thinking of making one IF a winger so as to make it all a little less one dimensional. Also, do you think I'm running a bit of a risk with higher wing backs? I thought positioning them there would aid in tiki taka triangle passes to the front. But would keeping the back four flat still produce a similar effect?
  9. Are you saying that you would advise against 2 inside forwards in this set-up?
  10. I'm using a 4141. DLF (s) IF (a) IF (a) BBM (s) BWM (s) WB (s) DLP (de) WB (s) CD (de) CD (de) SK (s) I'm wandering if having a box to box midfielder may be incongruent with the DLF as they may end up occupying the same space. Any thoughts on such a set up? (I'm trying to play vertical tiki taka football).
  11. Is it just how much he is on club radars? Or does it determine how a club values the player? Does it influence the players self-importance/valuation (i.e. where he may or may not play and how much wages he demands)?
  12. Damn. That's quite a bit out of my budget. Was hoping he would be cheaper than that. Isn't his starting value like 5k? Maybe if I waited a season I could get him cheaper.
  13. Looks very good. From Brondby right? How much did you pay for him?
  14. Say if I loan a player a bit out of my league (a top youngster from a top club who normally wouldn't think about transferring to me) and yet we become 'close' with regards to player/manager relationship. Would that influence any decision to possibly move to my club?
