  1. If you have "made the necessary tweaks", post a screenshot of your tactics on the tactics sub forum and let the FM community explain why the ME isn't at fault.
  2. Your player is clearing the ball long because of a combination of the following - 1. Tempo is too high so they look to get the ball forward as quickly as possible. 2. Passing is too direct, potentially combined with too higher tempo. 3. Poor passing options for the defender when he's on the ball. 4. Poor individual player attributes that aren't suited to playing out from the back. You are conceding chances from balls over the top because of a combination of the following - 1. Defensive line is too high, leaving too much space in behind. 2. Poor pressing structure whereby your team is pres
  3. To be blunt, because you aren't used to losing or even drawing, when it does happen you can't accept it. This leads you to make unfounded and ridiculous claims regarding scripting, the match engine and anything else that pops into your head to make you feel better about not winning. Stop acting like a petulant child, calm down, assess your tactics and move on.
  4. So let me get this straight - with these results above, you roll into the tactics forum and seek advice... weird flex but okay.
  5. I had a bit of a moan about this a few pages ago so I understand your frustration. However, whilst I think there is room for improvement, I've had some luck shifting to a standard defensive line, choosing a standard size pitch dimension at home and putting a full back on defend. It still isn't perfect, but seems to have helped a little.
  6. *ball lumped long by an opposition defender* "my centre back will deal with that all day long" *centre back stands still and then stutters when he starts chasing the attacker... goalllllll* "who cares at least I've got a social media feed"
  7. Playing in the Vanarama North... admittedly not a hotbed of intricate football, however... The amount of 1 on 1's I have seen missed is unbelievable - and almost every single one of them is created by a long ball over the top. I am yet to see a central midfielder slide a through ball to the striker. They seem to love looking directly at the wide open number 9, stopping, and then playing it square to the full back or winger. Wingers and full backs not playing the ball across the box, but instead shooting into the side netting is one of the most infuriating nuances of a match engine I
  8. Just imagine if crosses made it into the box and not just to the nearest defender's shins. IMAGINE.
  9. I've been a long-term admirer of the Football Manager series since my friend introduced me to the 2005 version, however I had slowly lost interest over recent years. This was mainly because of my inability to take a tactical style that was in my head, and replicate it in game. Maybe I just couldn't get my ideas across using the previous tactical screens. I've always seen football as three phases - when you have possession, when possession has just been turned over and when you don't have possession. I think SI's overhaul of tactics into a three phase system is one of the finest improvements fo
