  1. What would be the typical roles changes that you make to bypass heavy press? I donno maybe this question is too generic because it depends on formation, instructions and the players but are there some general rules for that or roles that help? I usually make my formation narrower when I have problems with keeping the ball but thats not a lot.
  2. All the Ibero-Americans can get 2nd Spanish citizenship after 2 years. The sole reason for it is usually what you just mentioned, registration rules. This way you can plan your conveyor belt of upcoming South American regens! KUTGW!
  3. Some advice regarding your tactic: - you play with high defensive line and with offside trap, the defenders in your tactic (Bates and van Drongelen) are fairly mobile but have bad mental stats, especially Bates. For me playing such couple with offside trap is too risky so I d drop it. - you use get stuck in but your defensive midfielder has low aggression and average at best tackling ability. On the other hand your left back, right back and bbm have good stats for this instructions so I d use this instruction selectively. Id start the games without it and use it mostly when the opponent plays slowly, its a draw and you feel like you want to win the ball back even faster. Your defense is aggressive anyway. - I d definitely get rid of dribble less instruction. Both of your ifs are actually excellent at dribbling and also the formation you play encourages dribbling and also you play wider. So if you wanna play with two attacking midfielders on both flanks and wider it makes no sense at all to restrict your players from dribbling (actually I d probably play with dribble more instead) - Jairo is right footed playing on the right side and from my experience he d perform better as inside forward on attack where his inability to dribble with his preferred foot by cutting inside is partially offset by him getting into good scoring positions where his right footedness would be a plus. This would also sort out the problem that others mentioned - lack of attacking duties. And btw, Jairo is really good at crossing too so you could play him as winger on attack too. - I d probably flip some of other tis. You have much higher tempo and wide and yet you use a dlp, a role that for me screams posession footbal, short passing play and max average tempo. If you wanna play posession football I d play on average speed and shorter passing and standard width (narrower formation helps with keeping the ball). But if you wanna continue playing fast and be aggressive (which probably you should cause your best players are your wingers) than there s no point in having a dlp there. Make him an ordinary defensive midfielder. Steinmann s an ok player but he s very slow and nothing special, dont make him a ball magnet.
  4. Yes exactly how I imagined that! I assume it was after corner and Ive noticed that recently in my team to. My FBs stay back and after the keeper catches the ball my CDs run back and occupy usual FBs spaces for a moment and when they decide its safe than they swap. In general its nice that you re doing really well so now you re in comfortable position where you can just make small changes and observe their effect its so much easier this way than when you have to overhaul your whole tactic! Regarding playing with higher dline, its true it might be too hard for your cds, it requires them to either both be relatively fast or for both of them to have great mental stats (but then you have to play with offside trap). And when you add to this that they also have to have at least good jumping reach than thats a lot of requirements...
  5. As @Old Scouser Tommy said green dots dont matter. As far as I know the only thing that has any influence on match engine is position familiarity so if someone is natural as MC he wont get any kind of match engine punishment for playing in a role that he s not familiar with so only think that matter is stats. Also the difference between natural and accomplished is impossible to notice. As for the tactic, Im not the biggest fan of not having any defender at least on support and it seems to me that because of that in your tactic there s a huge dependence on your dlpd to link play. Changing one of fullbacks to support could give you another sensible route to advance the ball forward. Also a question, do dlpd and inverted wingback get in each other s spaces a bit or not? Other than that the setup is nice. It seems you try to control possession so maybe you could try decreasing passing directness too and see what happens. I usually dont like symetric roles on both wings but here I assume it could work, wingers on support should cross from deep a lot and your target man should sit in line with the defence to be able to connect with some of those headers. But if you notice him dropping too deep than probably changing to advanced forward or poacher could work.
  6. With two wingbacks you could try a hb and before him for example dlps and bbm. From my own experience dlp really helps with controlling posession.
  7. Just noticed that he has Germany as his first nationality so mystery solved!
  8. Did Mihic get injuried that he is not called up to the national team???
  9. Wow thats a LOT of money for a goalkeeper! Anyway I feel your pain of losing a beloved regen to a release clause.
  10. So apparently Yusuf Yazici s transfer from Trabzonspor to Lille contains a clause of 20 mln EUR penalty that Lille would have to pay if they ever sell Yazici to other Turkish club. I thought it d be realistic now to include such option in FM.
  11. Very cool that you took up the challenge that was sort of forced on you. Three issues regarding your tactic: - carillero role is hard coded for tactics without anyone in am r/l or m r/l so in your tactic he wont work properly. I assume he d behave more or less like ordinary cms. - as @AFCBeer mentioned your left flank might have too much if a gap, if so I d recommend changing fbd to wbd. Wbd is actually quite conservative and if your player is fast enough than his positioning a little high up the pitch wont hurt. - Im not sure about the roles for strikers because actually right now both of them are tap in specialists. Both of them stay in the box and neither of them moves into channels. If their off the ball is so good than I d try dlfs - p combination or maybe pfs - afa.
  12. It d be great to add a small feature that would allow you to tell your assistant coach to start certain youth team player in the first squad on certain position. I have a situation in one of my saves where one of the most talented youth team players gets very little playing time because I assume his CA is lower than some other less perspective players and his current preferred positions don't fit the tactic. It d be nice to have a simple feature allowing you to tell your assistant to play that guy. It d help him develop faster and also get familiar with new position quicker without the need of running the youth team yourself.
