  1. WOW Rashidi !! :-O That is one heck of a comment mate & as I said to 'Experienced Defender', I'm really appreciative I like the way you've set out your training program into just HOW you want to attack on the break (through the flank's). What I want to do in my counter attacking & I'll definitely use more 'Attacking Wings' in my training, is to have a biggish or a pacey-ish centre forward with also a player in the hole (Cristian Erikson, Raheem Sterling, Gianfranco Zola type). I'd like him to turn & have the option of running with the ball himself or to play it to either wing & on one wing to have two player's (creating an overload). I also want one or maybe two central midfielder's bombing on (maybe arriving late for the pull back cross) Mexico did this really well v Germany in the 2018 world cup. They let Kimmich burst forward & won the ball & hit them hard on the left flank (the space he vacated). I'll have a tinker with my training scedule now Rashidi Thanks again my friend for your time, trouble & thought's
  2. Hello Experienced Defender Thank You very much for taking the time & trouble to offer me your thought's. I appreciate your help mate What you've said makes perfect sense too. Yeah, counter attacking is all about anticipation, then pace/movement & decision making & your training idea's all offer that. My counter attacking tactic is based on Mexico v Germany in the 2016 world cup & also, England (especially in the first half) in their 3-2 win in Spain last year. I try to outnumber the opposition's central midfielder's & have my forward player's staying in between the defence/midfield. I'm currently managing Preston, so my player's do offer the speed on the break, but their ability does lack in the dribbling/decision making. Thanks again pal
  3. Hi everybody I'm still puzzled by what to do to improve my counter attacking (I've been thinking that first touch, passing, acceleration. pace, off the ball, composure & decision making are the key attribute's). Do you think that training transition press (trying to win the ball back) is a good idea ? Or to focus on training attacking or tactical attacking ? Any help would be great
  4. Hey, Hi Russell Thank You for your help/advice mate. I've had a go at what you've suggested & it work's !! :-D You've solved that puzzle for me pal. Thanks again young man & take care
  5. Hi all I'm sorry if this question has been asked before, but has anybody else had issues with creating a new training schedule & it saving for the current save game you're playing, but not for any other new career game's you want to play in the future ? I can save all the different tactics that I create, but not for my training schedules. It's not a big problem, as I've written down what I create & then just add which one's I prefer for that game, but it is a bit time consuming & I just wondered if anybody else has the same issue. Thank You
  6. Hi all Could anybody give me any thought's on how to train your player's to counter attack ? I see that there's a 'pressing transition' option which may help your team to close down & break quickly, but is there anything else that might help ?? Thanks for reading & for any advice
  7. Hi. I just wanted you all to know that there are quite a few positional error's in regards to set piece position's. I have always really enjoyed setting up my set piece's & I haven't really seen any error's with the player placement in other year's games, but in this year's game (FM19), there seems to be quite a few. On the throw in's, I like to do long throw's & always put by big striker at the 'lurk at the near post' position & my biggest central defender to 'attack the near post', but in the match engine it doesn't seem to work that way. I see my big CD back on the half way line & my winger at the attacking near post place. This happens a lot from corner's too in regards to my central defenders staying back. I know it isnt a big thing in terms of what's important in life & I'm not really moaning, but it does perhaps put a little stain on what is in general a wonderful game. All the very best to all
  8. I love the new training mode, but I wish we could save our plan's so we could use them for other team's.
  9. I seem to be seeing penalties in 7 or 8 game's out of 10 that I play & mostly against me.
  10. Hi Zlatan & Thanks for your reply mate I've been trying to select the recovery choice on a Sunday, Monday & Wednesday morning & a Friday afternoon extra session, but it just won't let me. I could on the beta release & I think it did help with injuries. It's only a little thing Zlatan. I think I'll just select the 'Rest' option. Thanks again
  11. I've just noticed that I can't select the 'recovery' option on the training schedule. It might seem a little thing, but I use it often as giving time to recover is really important, especially when you've only a smiall squad. Has anybody else noticed this possible error ? Thanks
  12. Ahhh, I see. Thanks a lot for your replies guy's
  13. I might be being a little picky, but I'm a bit disappointed that there isn't a 'Sweeper' position in this year's game. There is a Libero choice, but I much prefer the sweeper, as I think a player playing behind the defence, should stay there at all times.
