  1. Squad building is obviously an issue but fixing squad building alone will not fix the problem. I managed Leicester city which placed 10th last season. The only transfer that I brought in is a new starting striker while I sold off their starting winger and promote a young winger with potential but slightly worse to the starting position. These are the only changes I made. I played with the same 4231 formation they used last season but fit my tactics around the players I have. With basically pretty much the same team that finished 10th last season under the AI manager, I brought them to win the
  2. Agreed on the data analyst part especially with how data analysis is more important than ever in sports now. And you look at in game figuring out what benefits you get with a better data analyst. But I think the better stats data analyst should give you more stats that you can choose from as most data points that you can get rarely deviates too much from one another in real life. So for example, a better data analyst instead of only able to display xG will be able to track individual xG and give you some generic advice from there.
  3. you too. then what do you expect SI to do? Gegenpress too OP? Sure you can nerf high pressing but every top team is doing high pressing in real life right now so what's the point? Good luck catering to the one player that does not want high pressing while a hundred others just want to play the game and gegenpress their favourite team to victory. And have you played FM18 before? Any team can play through your high press like prime Barcelona. Too easy to hire good staffs? well its somewhat realistic isn't it? Many mid-sized club realized that do not have the financial muscle to compete
  4. sigh. check what the post is about in the first place. First you argued that these strategies are only applicable to big teams and i refuted your point. And you shifted the argument to exploits. Nice job there.
  5. Again I have mentioned a fine line. Using high pressing alone is not an exploit. You can try to do what you mentioned here in game. I will be surprised if you do not end up with an injury crisis.
  6. And I doubt any players can do what you mentioned without exploiting the game to the limit. I personally had an ongoing journeyman save and I definitely didn't win the champions league within a few seasons. Notice there is a fine line between exploits and an effective yet realistic strategy. And it is general good game design to speed up the game timeline if not everyone will be bored to death.
  7. But these are exploits that OP didn't mention. These are exploits no doubt but they are not what OP has mentioned. I am talking about an effective strategy not exploits so stop shifting the goal posts. Check back to what I am talking and what OP post is about.
  8. Leicester city were in the premier league for less than a decade. Lyon were a very small club compared to their rivals St Etienne before the 21th century. Sheffield united still had players that they bought from league one. The fact is every single one of the club that I mentioned apply these strategies and look at where are they now. Just because they are in the top leagues now doesn't mean that it had always been like this. So stop trying to argue with me it is because they are in the big boy leagues.
  9. So it goes back to my question what do you expect SI to do? These are not game breaking exploits or loopholes. And there are already restrictions in game either through finances or reputation factors. So if someone had a strategy that is effective and realistic should SI ban it?
  10. I've mentioned leagues outside the premier league so stop trying to argue otherwise. Are Lyon and Sevilla in the premier league? The strategies that OP and I mentioned applies to every club in the world which is scaled by their finances and reputation like in real life and in game. Maybe try and research more about the footballing world before you try to educate me on that. And my point is if it can happen in real life then it is not a game breaking exploit or loophole.
  11. then what do you expect SI to do? Gegenpress too OP? Sure you can nerf high pressing but every top team is doing high pressing in real life right now so what's the point? Good luck catering to the one player that does not want high pressing while a hundred others just want to play the game and gegenpress their favourite team to victory.

  12. By your logic then every game is flawed. Every game has their meta and if you are playing using the meta and calling the game not challenging while refuses to use anything that is not meta then you deserved to be called out.
  13. Try 4231 with full backs putting crosses in for your striker. Doesn't matter who is the striker he will score. Tried this with arsenal back in FM2017(my first FM game btw) and won the league with zero transfers.
  14. How good is your team? As far as I am concerned the Chelsea team is stacked. You will need the stars perfectly aligned for you to have any chance against this team. Not very match is winnable with the right tactics. Sometimes the gulf in quality is too huge.
  15. On an unrelated note, Spain got properly FMed by Ukraine. https://www.uefa.com/uefanationsleague/match/2030070--ukraine-vs-spain/statistics/?iv=true Rodri ouch...
