  1. I enjoyed the system and the idea behind the strategy and would like to have a tactic that does similar, but with a couple of tweaks to make it that bit more effective. Considering the strength of Arsenals players on FM, I wouldn't mind 5th with a Europa League final with this tactic, in the first season, my trouble is making a tactic that can get me there! That, and I'm also bored of 4-1-4-1 tiki taka tactics and wanted to try something else.
  2. After watching the 'lovely' end to Arsenal's season, I thought about having a go with them on FM19, encorporating Emery's tactic and hopefully building a more successful change to Wenger's reign. I've previously religiously used a 4-1-4-1 in game, and wanted to emulate roughly what Emery's done with the three at the back. Had a lot of issues defending properly, pressing, and having the right level of penetration in attack. Every Emery tactic I've seen is before he switched to three at the back. The only analysis I could find online was https://spielverlagerung.de/2018/12/28/boxing-day/ I've thought the tactic would be on an attacking mentality - but the cbs hit long wayward balls even with shorter passing and take less risks selected. There is an element of tiki taka, but I guess 'fluid counter attack' where the ball is played up the pitch with a quicker tempo. I'm not sure about the press, I like to high press, and Emery's Arsenal does that, but the shape doesn't lend itself to pressing full backs. Ideally I'd also be able to have a mid block variation, so to make use of the pace up front and when defending a lead to hit them on the break. With the shape as below. Ignore the roles and team instructions, I was focusing more on the shape. I've been using three centre back CD on defend. Experimented with wing backs on support with look for overlap, or wing backs on attack. Not sure about the CM roles. Ozil as a AP I've been using Lacazette and Aubameyang both as CF support, but I don't think its completely right. Both seem more attack minded in real life, but still offer each other support in attack. Any help or advice on building this tactic would be much appreciated, I've really struggled making an effective tactic
  3. Hey there, I have 2 questions! 1. When training a player in a role (eg Inside Forward AMR) after some time the player stops training in the role, and only starts training in the position (AMR). Sometimes the training position might not even be the same, it could be LM or something like that. This 'new' position isn't always the one the player is natural in. Why does this happen? How can I prevent it from happening? On staff responsibilities I am in charge of all individual training on every squad. The above situation can happen with players who haven't been made availble for reserves/under 19 squad or anything. 2. When on opposition instructions, if I have instructions set on position, will they always be on when viewing opposition instructions for players? Ie if I toggle between the two are both active, or is it position OR player?
  4. Hey guys, I have a 4312 tactic which overall is working quite well for me in terms of scoring goals, but I'm always more vunerable at the back. When my full backs are anything less than CWBs on attack I really struggle to score. Theres 2 variants I would want to achieve: 1. The pace of my strikers is a huge asset, so if the ball over the top is on, I'd love to just clip it over their defense. 2. When that ball isn't on, having a slow build up working the space to eventually find a clear cut chance.
  5. Hey everyone, I've read up on the guides on making the most out of training, and I have been doing so in the new game. I realised I haven't been doing it with youth though, I don't know the differences on setting up youth schedules and thought I'd ask to learn what to keep in mind? And what do you guys do/how do you view youth schedules Ideally I would create schedules at the beginning of the season for youth and not check them every week or so!
  6. Hey guys, I wanted to ask if anyone has done a long-term successful save from a team from Portuguese or Turkish league? I'm wanting to create a 'super club' on par with Europes finest from one of these nations, and wondered if the success of it can get the league reputation on par or better than the Spanish/English/German leagues. I've seen saves from more obscure countries getting to around 7-8 on the list of Competition Reputation, but has anyone had experince with a nation from around 7-15 on the list breaking into the top 4?
