  1. The season after I was in a relegation battle the whole season. Wtf is it with this game? The hardest FM game I ever played!
  2. When u build a tactic - start from your goalkeeper. Is he useless with distribution? then try to roll it out to defenders. If you have a good BPD in CB - roll it to CB's. Do u have a good DLP? then try to build up attack from there, etc. If all your players is quite bad with the ball but you have a killer striker with good pace? then try to bang it straigth over opponents team into space and hope for the best, etc... Always have a plan how to get the ball from your goalkeeper into the net of the opposition.
  3. So I started this thread because I was struggeling making a valid tactic while playing with Sheffield United. I wanted to play an aggressive direct style of play with high defensive line. Now I started a new save and play with Norwich instead and after half a season I'm at 5th place, so I guess the tactics works quite good. (I was starting to work on the tactic in my Sheffield save but just couldn't get it to work. with that team) In the Sheffield save I valued team work, stamina, work rate and aggression very high, trying to reatin possession a lot and attack directly. In this Norwich file
  4. One thing I've seen is that having an extremely good crosser is a good way to go. Should have at least 17 in crossing (vision and decision is a bonus) and make sure that this guy comes into crossing positions a lot. It could be a wingback or a winger, doesn't matter, just make sure to cover up for him if he's useless in everything else than crossing. He doesn't need to be pacey or have dribbling skills even hough that of course is preferred (17 in crossing and slow and bad dribbler is preferred over a 15 in crosses with pace and skills - the crosses has the be top quality, that's the most impo
  5. Yup it is very true. When I tried to take "the next step" from a middle team to a europa league team, I'm trying to deploy a more offensive tactic to get more goals and win more games (before, when my team sucked, I was happy to win only every now and then). But this step has been very hard and when I deployed a more attacking tactic then I instead lose more easy games because teams are exploiting me at the back. My best season I ended at 9th, and by then I basically had the "perfect" tactic for my Sheffield utd that just wanted to avoid relegation battle, and when tryin to attack more, to p
  6. I did reinstall today and still tryin to build a valid tactic
  7. Thanks but I just rage quit and deleted FM from my computer! This was just to frustrating! But thank you VERY MUCH for all your help!
  8. I rage quitted today and uninstalled everything.
  9. With counterattack I don't mean conventional counter attack (lure opposition) I mean that you start to attack as soon as you retain possession, so that you can exploit oppositions vulnarable state of transition. Basically gegenpress, try to "counter" high up the pitch. So I don't mean normal counterplay when I say counterplay.... maybe a little unclear hehe... Thanks for the inputs, I will try to make the flanks a little more various. But how would you play in attacking with this tactics? Direct? Fast? Slow? And what team instructions etc... I think this is my biggest problem, I haven't
  10. Lol #metoo. And then I have amazing ideas, trying them, winning the first games easily and thinking "finally". And then everything goes back to normal, loosing against Burnley, Crystal Palace and Bournemouth and then the season is ruined again.
  11. My tactic looks like this in the moment hence I can't make any tactic work, so that's why it looks a little weird. My style of football I want to play is an aggressive counterattack style based on a high defensive line that is very fast to pick the ball when opponent try to play long balls that I try to force them to do with my aggressive style, stressing them to play long. The plan is that my CB's won't get outsped when the long ball comes, pick up the ball, and from there I will recover possesion. Thats why I play an aggressive defensive style. This has worked very well in previous games.
  12. Having three at the back with high pace/acc and play with a high defensive line has alway been a key for success for me but I just can't get it to work this time. I've been winning Champoins League with Berlin Köpenick-Dammfield in previous games with tactics close to this and players with the same ability. The tactic above is not exactly what I've been using all the time but the last thing I am trying right now... I think my team is good enough for europa league, but I just can't break in to the top 7....Please help me. This is my striking force: My three at the back: Her
  13. Is it harder to make a valiable tactic in theese series of the game?? I'm on my 6th season with Sheffield and have built a good squad but I haven't reached europa league yet! It has never took me so long to establish my team in the top of the league! Im still struggling in the places between 8-12. Im getting crazy! I have very fast central defenders and trying to switch between a 433 and 343 (3-2-2-2-1) but whatever i try it never works out. In some games it does and I completely demolish my opposition, and I can win games against the best teams in the league, but I just never get to the p
  14. I just found it weird that Satan works as a players liaison officer at Sheffield United. I wonder how that reqruitment process was like.
