  1. Just thought it would be really cool to have in the game, the authority to appoint your team's next manager if say you have made yourself a legend at the club like Sir Alex did at Manchester United.
  2. outside topic: btw if you want your scouts to bring you a list of players that YOU WANT, I suggest you to do your own scouting assignments and specifically assign your scouts to specific places for specific type of players (e.g young, intelligent prospects).
  3. I know in real life manager would give his team a pre-match briefing to talk about oppositional weaknesses and strengths, as well as how he wants the team to play. I wonder how effective is the briefing in FM? Like does it add to your tactical familiarity and allow you to execute your game plan better?
  4. Anyone else find it difficult to win at Tottenham's home turf? I guess its quite realistic given that they are a difficult team to play against in real life, but has anyone here had any luck playing them away?
  5. for the 1st tactic, perhaps I should've elaborated further, its good against teams that play a narrow formation. Chances are it will not work against teams that counter you on the flanks. I put halfbacks there because I want to outnumber my opposition in the middle and create passing option in the middle. My suggestion is if you play against defensive teams that have a tendency to counter on the flank, change the halfbacks to inverted wing backs in the higher positions (automatic, dribble less, less risky). That way, you will have control in the middle (when in possession) because the inverted wingbacks tuck in when the team is in possession, as well as wide areas (when out of possession) because they defend like wing backs. @Robson 07 the reason i designed the first two tactics is because I manage a very dominant side and teams always play with very defensive - cautious mentality with players staying behind. Sometimes they counter and sometimes they don't attack at all. Therefore I needed to find a balance between controlling the game and not conceding from counter attacks.
  6. My chief scout does a really good job (almost 98% accurate) in predicting how my opposition will line up, I am able to plan accordingly. There are a few regens on my squad but I'm in 8th season so that makes sense. Most of them are promoted through the ranks if not bought at young age. 1. Against teams that are defensive but either plays with two strikers or will try to counter attack. Halfbacks here are set to stay wider when in possession of the ball (Luke Shaw can play there too but may lack discipline staying behind) and Regista is given the license to bomb forward. Used to have Veratti as my RGA but he got old and James Garner who is promoted through the ranks is also very good. Also note that Boubacar Kamara is a really good ballplaying defender who can dribble and pass. Buy him! 2. Against teams that will park the bus and will barely make an effort to the counter attack (usually 541, 451, or 4231 deep). The support role here does not best suit Mason Greenwood but I also wanted my striker to do link up play. Callum Gribbin (originally from U18 squad) is incredibly underrated. 3. For big games and some mid table teams. Player instructions and roles may vary from opponent to opponent, but thats the core.
  7. @phnompenhandy haha I know I know.... I'm just ranting cuz it nearly takes 100 points in order to secure the title
  8. After conceding the title to Liverpool for two consecutive years by narrow margin... New season: appointed Roy Keane as my assistant manager and made new tactics for teams that will park the bus against me (posted later). Let's see how that plays out
  9. oh boy mind games do not work against Klopp haha. Everytime I try to play mind games with them, they become even more determined and win their games 5-0. i agree with what all of you are saying though, i need to somehow try to get that extra 5% consistency from my squad aka not to gift away points in away games against weaker teams.
  10. It is very demotivating that season after season my league rival LIverpool beats me to the league because they almost never drop points. My records aren't bad at all but they are just tiny bit more consistent than my team... See below
  11. Defend wide so they have will difficulty overloading you on one side then switch play to the other side. Close them down more because their players can hit long shots. Counter them on the flanks as they will concede lots of space when they attack with their full backs (pass into space, exploit their flanks). Training tips: wide defending, defensive positioning or defensive shadow player, and chance conversion as you won't get a lot of chances in the game so make sure when you do, these chances count.
