  1. Is it just me, or are La Liga and BuLi players rated very harshly, while EPL players are rated very leniently?
  2. I'd say that no .15 should be sticking closer to Trincao irrespective of whether or not he has been given specific instructions to man mark him. If he doesn't stick close to him, once Trincao receives the ball, he can easily turn and run at him. In real life, fullback will always try to make sure that the winger is not able to turn at run at them, by pressuring him and sticking closer. This isn't going to happen here, because no.15 is too far off to intervene in time in case Trincao gets the ball. I expect this to happen. The main aim of having possession is to disorient the opposition
  3. This picture encapsulates what is wrong with defending out wide. Look at the insane amount of space Trincao has. When De Jong makes the obvious pass to him, he will have enough space and time to turn and run at their backline. Which is exactly what happens later. The Levante No.15 is not sticking as close to him as he should be and sticks to his position too much. Another issue here is the positioning of the Levante No. 6 and No. 3. What are they doing here? No.6 should be cutting off the passing lane to Trincao however, he just stands idly. No.3 has a similar issue. Which passing lane is he c
  4. It depends a lot on the players. I've seen United play a midfield two of Pogba and Fernandes, a combination which would see them run over by almost every team in the PL, and reach the CL Final. The problem is that defensive ability becomes practically irrelevant for midfielders if they have high work rate and high physical stats. This is one of the inherent weaknesses of the 4-2-3-1. Once your first line of press is bypassed you become extremely vulnerable. This doesn't happen in FM as players somehow magically recover from bad positioning in a manner they never could irl.
  5. I hope in the FM22, there are improvements to wide defending. Right now, there is just way too much space out wide for AML/AMR. They are almost always allowed to turn and run at the defence which is something that every defence logically would try to prevent. DL/DR players need to break off the defensive line a lot more in order to close space down and stick closer to the wide attacker. Also, maybe make players with the "Likes To Switch Ball To Wide Areas" trait a little less likely to do it? While it certainly is useful in certain scenarios, it can get really irritating when the only pas
  6. While I am pretty sure SI don't have a deal with United, EPL players are rather overrated. While their physical stats are in line with what I'd expect, their technical and mental attributes are way overrated, especially when you compare them to players of similar calibre in other leagues.
  7. I hope that nutmeg passes and shots are added to FM22. I am getting tired of my players constantly smashing the ball into an opposition defender inside the box.
  8. I do agree that the ME is pretty good in a lot of areas. I've had players practically walk the ball into the goal and some brilliant plays in the centre of the park. Compared to FM20, the gap between world class technical players and average players is actually visible with great playmakers regularly passing their way out of a tight spot. Central play in general is far better than before. However, decision making in the final third could do with some improvements. My only major issues are with the defending in wide regions and mental attributes being a side note if you play a high pressin
  9. Playing such an ultra aggressive setup needs to be punished more. There is no way any decent manager would ever go for such an unbalanced lineup in real life.
  10. It would be great if fullbacks moved ahead of the defensive line and tried to force the winger to keep his back to the goal instead of turning and running at the defense. Also, maybe defenders should react better to the situation. Right now, it feels like even world class defenders are too slow to react to events and often give too much space to elite attackers which they normally wouldn't in real life. Third, please make it a little easier to crack open parked busses. It is so frustrating when you work a perfect overload, the switch of play happens beautifully and then your world cl
  11. I am going to commit heresy by trying to convert Frenkie De Jong to a left back. Wish me luck.
  12. You shouldn't need pace though. Take Messi or Modric, both very good dribblers even today but not exactly very quick. Pace isn't all that important for midfield or striker roles. It is a nice attribute to have but not necessary to score or assist. Anticipation, Off The Ball are far more important than pace.
  13. FC Barcelona. It is always fun to take a club in real life crisis to CL glory (This of course has nothing to do with me being a Barcelona fan desiring nothing other than revenge over Bayern, Real Madrid, Liverpool, Roma and PSG). Hopefully, the technical and tactical aspects of the ME improve with this update and building a team of technical, intelligent midgets is actually possible.
  14. ME can't really replicate the fluidity of real life. It is just not possible. Apart from that, I think players who are good on the ball in real life, do not produce moments of magic as often as they should in the ME. The ME, while much better than 20 and 19 still leans too heavily towards pace and power, while at the top level, I'd argue that mentals and technique are more important.
