  1. @ScottishFM Not a seasoned player but here's my two cents. There are a few glaring mistakes in your setup that might be causing this problem. Lack of offside trap while playing high defensive line, on top of that your wbs being on automatic duty doesn't seem like a great choice specially when you switch to attacking mentality which i assume would change your wbs to attacking role too. That would leave your defence too exposed. Lack of penetration in your attack with just 1 attacking role. Maybe use attacking role on one of the wingers ? Few additional things i would like to poi
  2. Cool, though i should tell you i am a massive noob when it comes to tactics, i mostly use plug & play tactics (still using them as base before tweaking for my liking) so take it all with a block of salt. I have better defenders than before so that obviously helps but also most of them have really good Concentration stat which i think is pretty solid when playing low block as your defence would have to stay focused for most part of game so i like to think it helps at that, plus it also helps at defending late game. Besides having better defenders than before, i think adding OI's every
  3. I think the same since even if there's no other way for opponents to score there's always op set-pieces. I like defensive setups so have tried a lot to somewhat replicate Jose's or Conte's systems but just couldn't keep clean sheets so i slowly went back to good old overused gegenpress. But around 9 games ago (low sample size but still) i went back to trying low block and strangely enough haven't conceded a single goal whenever i have played that way (still playing extremely urgent pressing and counter-press though, while i do want to play less pressing and more regrouping like Jose's mastakla
  4. Hey, thanks for the skin. In latest version the player's status indicators look different from the ones shown in your pics, in pics they are normal but in latest version they look like candy crush blocks. Any way to change them back to normal ?
  5. Okay, thank you. I will try time wasting as you said and maybe not tweak other settings much. Your United squad conceded just 13 goals so atleast it's doable with good players, which i don't have rn so that must be a reason too. Anyway, any tips on training ? Like defensively is it better to train engaged or disengaged since counter/regroup option is left blank. I usually train both of them but idk, if there are any specific tips you got to share ?
  6. Okay thanks, sounds like a good idea. Got few more questions. Like do you make any change if you go into lead to secure the lead ? Like Mourinho is known for parking the bus and grinding 1-0 results back in his Inter days so do you try to make changes to achieve something like that ? I try to drop mentality and few other changes but mostly it doesn't work for me. Just can't seem to keep clean sheet at all.
  7. Yes for JM tactic. So even if opponent's fullbacks aren't playing as wingbacks on paper, still my wingers would mark them once the fullbacks push forward and act like wingbacks ?
  8. @BJT Hey, thanks for the tactics. Wanted to know why the wide midfielders are set to mark opposition's wingbacks rather than fullbacks ?
  9. Such teams won't make any purchases i assume ? Only sales if other teams come for their players ? Also when i selected the leagues while starting a new cm it showed around 140k player count but now 1 month into 1st season it says player count approx 240k, is that supposed to happen ? I did have "add players to playable teams" option on and "do not add key staff" off.
  10. I have loaded like 68 divisions from 50 nations on large db, and then through advanced db i included all UK & Ireland players (Using Dan's file to unlock 11 divisions of England for which he had suggested to do so). Player count at that time showed around 140k, now a month into 1st season it says 242k... is this 100k increase because i used the option of having fake players fill up the empty squads ? Anyway as you said right balance, so which db would you recommend for 60-70 leagues ? Or is my current one fine ?
  11. A question about loading national players... If i load all players of a nation through advanced database but not all the leagues of said nation, then where would the loaded players from those unloaded leagues go ? If the answer is they stay in their unloaded leagues then would they stay there or clear out in few seasons and crowd up other leagues that were loaded ?
  12. Yeah, but if i load all the players from UK and Ireland but not load all the leagues from said nations, then where would these players go ? Would they still go in their unloaded teams or crowd up other teams that are loaded ?
  13. Yeah afaik it does seem to start fine with your db. Cm started without any problem and lower divisions are showing up as they should, clubs names are long and have more league history than default.
