  1. @roykela wow nice, interesting career! What happened in Varisim though? And why did you move there? There were no better offers after winning Danish league 4 times or just your choice?
  2. Oh man with tactic this full of TIs its virtually impossible to analyze single effects of one of them. Its a mess. As @pheelf said changing the way you pass is very fundamental. One thing I could advice you to try with posession based tactic when defrnding the lead is to make the formation one step narrower and drop the mentality one step. This alone should make your players play safer and narrower formation will make it easier for them to keep the posession.
  3. Im glad I could help at least a little! I like this setup much more however as @Experienced Defender mentioned the defense seems aggressive. You have a lot of ground to cover with mich higher LOE for urgent oressing and on too of that coubter pressing. Thats a lot to ask of your players. You could try to mix it up during the game though, for example defend this way for 15 mins and then drop to standard LOE and stardard pressing. Cheers and good luck and keep us updated how its going
  4. Regarding B, it seems to me you could also try to change left side IF to s and keep right side as a. Felix has high flair and should work well this way and Chiesa is right footed so ideally I d play him as winger but this way you d waste some of Florenzi s potential (he wint have enough space). In case of playing inside forwards on the same side as their strong foot I strongly prefer them to be on attack and not on support.
  5. Once in fm18 I used Nicolas Kuhn as inside forward on left side. He is left footed and he was playing very well. However from my observation he was much more efficient with attack duty than support duty where he was dribbling aggressively often and also he was scoring quite a lot of goals where his left footedness on left side was actually a benefit.
  6. Thank you for your reply. Its like my own previous success contributes to my problems. At the end of the day I could be 2nd in the league go to CL quarter final and drop out of the cup in semis and still fail all three competitions.
  7. I have a questiom about your previous experiences regarding job security as club legend or icon. I'm managing Celta Vigo now, my 7th season and in my previous three seasons I managed to win the league three times and Champions League once 2 seasons ago. I am now club icon but the expectations are very high (minimum win the league go to cup final and CL semifinal). The club is after takeover in very good financial situation but still Im not able to spend as much as Barcelona Real or PSG. I feel there will be a season where I dont meet any of my competition expectations (last season I won the league by 1 point because Barcelona dropped points in the last game, didnt meet expectations in cup or CL). Anyway new stadium is coming in 2 seasons and I wanna be a part of that. So my question is, from your experience do the fact that im a club icon could conteibite to my job security in any way?
  8. You re right. Sorry for spamming. I assumed it would fall into Strategies
  9. I have a problem with my online save and would very much want someone to help me. Me and my friend play online in Swiss league. We use saturday and wednesday matches only. My u21 team has no fixtures but no big deal I arrange friendlies every week. Unfortunately only saturday and wednesday options are available and it turns out every time forst and second team plays on wednesday all my players, even those made available for u21 are not in squad for u21 matches. This makes managing the team much more difficult. Any idea how to solve that?
  10. From my experience tighter marking works really well with offside trap.
  11. As @summatsupeer said Moreaux as wide target man would be interesting but I ve never tried any formation like that What I d definitely to is to stop playing him as a striker, his finishung is terrible and this way you waste his best skill, crossing. I d stick him on the left wing as winger on attack or support and add an appropriate striker. I d combine them in this way that if Moreaux is on attack many of his crosses would be from the byline so someone like pressing forward support. If you have Moreaux on support I d have to have someone who sits in line with the defensive line so either poacher or advanced fowrward. Additionally Moreaux is fast but his dribbling is terrible so it speaks knocks ball past opponent ppm to me. Teach him that. Last but not least Akpala behind him is rather better at defending than attacking so I d just stick him on fbs and use him to recycle possessions and I d definitely get rid of overlap left. With that combination of players I see no benefit of Moreaux being less aggressive and waiting fo Akpala to overlap.
  12. First of all your tactic is very extreme and very intense. I d start with the defence, in my opinion it makes no sense to do everything meaning press more urgently and mark tighter. If you want to be successful with tighter marking your central defenders should both be excellent at marking, meaning 13 or 14 is not good enough for top EPL team. But if you decide to go this way than you should probably drop more urgent pressing and drop the defensive line and line of engagement to higher or even to standard. But probably the best way for you to operate is to switch off tigher marking and drop the line to higher, you can keep extremely urgent pressing and counter press but that is something that needs to impact the players you sign and sell. Meaning if you want to play this very intense style of play everybody with poor work rate needs to go and everybody who comes in needs to have at least good work rate, stamina and preferably also good teamwork and (defenders and midfielders) good tackling. Other changes involve roles and duties. First of all I d play with only one BPD, whichever is better on the ball and also you should differentiate roles of attacking 3, meaning at least one of them should be supporting.
  13. I didnt check that but it might be because you play on comprehensive and that tends to show you situations where cornes are won. I definitely seen some crosses deflected to the touchline.
  14. Thank you for your help. At the beginning of next season he was mostly playing off the bench but slowly his performance picked up. I guess he was just jaded from the World Cup and I should have reacted faster but I rotate quite a bit so I thought it d be fine.
  15. Dear FM community. Recently i ve experienced my most sudden drop of performance of a player in all my years of playing FM. My striker, Moise Kean went to world cup in 2022 being my top player and after he came back the second half pf the season was a disaster. He scored only 1 goal and had 2 assists and total rsting of 6,45 or something like that (he was still just below 7 for the whole season which speaks how huge the trop was). I manage Celta Vigo for the 3rd season and ended up on 4th place. I didnt change my tactic neither did I notice other teams playing much more defensively against me. Kean is only 22 he didnt have any injury or my physios didnt say he was jaded. I rotate quite a lot so I assume he wasnt very tired overall. His stats dropped a little only at the end of the season. I have never seen such prolonged drop of performance from a player and my question to you is is it something you experience more often than before in fm 19? Looking back I should have benched him earlier but I tend to stkck to undeprefrorming players for quite some time cause usuallh they regain form. Oh and also Kean is descrived as consistent performer in the scouting report and from mh own exoerience those players usually outperform their visible attributes. At least after all my critique of him his determination grew by 2.
