  1. I'm not playing at the same level as the teams in the rest of this thread, but having great fun with a possession dominating 433 with the following, very simple setup: GK - SK (D) RB - FB (S) CDs - CD (D) LB - WB (S) DM - DMC (D) CMR - CM (A) CML - CM (S) AMR - W(S) AML - IW (A) SC - PF (S) Balanced mentality, shorter passing, more disciplined. Higher DLine and LOE. Counter-Press on. GK distributes to full-backs. The DMC and the CML, while not playing as playmakers, dictate the play. How the team plays and keeps possession depends o
  2. Hello mate, not sure where you got your facepacks from (and apologies if you know this already) but that picture of Ben Seymour is actually Jack Sparkes...
  3. I don't know if this is too difficult to code - and I don't know how many people actually use the player swapping option - but something I've wanted to see included for some time is the ability for a player to swap position with more than one other player/position. I.e. if I'm playing a 4-2-3-1, could the AML swap with the AMR or the AMC or the SC to help create a more fluid setup? If I play a 4-3-3, the front three could all rotate like Man Utd's did as explained in this article: Teams of the Decade #3: Manchester United 2006-09 | Zonal Marking
  4. I tend to play on Comprehensive Highlights but I think I'm going to have to start weaning myself off and move to Key and Extended if I'm going to make progress through the seasons. As this is my save for trying new things then there's no excuse really!
  5. So I’ve decided to start again – again – but this time away from a league/country I know and continue my aims in FM21 of trying new things and breaking old habits. Inverurie Locos are on hold while I try the challenge in Serbia, with Serbian First League team FK Smederevo 1924, based on the banks of the Danube about 45kms from Belgrade (images to follow if I can remember). Decent sized stadium and adequate youth recruitment so lots of potential for progression. It has turned out to me a more interesting challenge than expected (especially when I actually read the rules properly) –
  6. This is a dig at you as such, but maybe he didn't want to play for you or his agent didn't like you? Or he might have a local connection to the team he signed for (if that's a thing in the game)?
  7. It's the line "Not once have I seen somebody say that Brexit benefitted their game and it has worked out better" that did it for me. Absolute comedy gold.
  8. I'm usually pretty good at picking up satire and I must admit this one took me a while to realise it couldn't possibly be genuine. A really good effort, well done. I particularly enjoy the bit where you think Brexit - a scheme designed to restrict access to the UK by those from abroad - is going to somehow benefit a football league obsessed with signing foreigners. Really, really, good comedy writing. I'll be keeping an eye on future posts for more of your stuff, keep up the good work!
  9. Does it have a large screen in the corner? I've started as Inverurie Locos (after they won the Play-Off) and sure enough we have a great big screen in one corner...
  10. I haven't had much time to play this properly yet, but promises to be much more enjoyable (and manageable) than my first attempt with Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic where I only had 15 players. Highlights from the squad include two goalkeepers (both terrible), lots of right backs, two pre-season testimonials and one guy retiring and he's not the youngest player (or one of the testimonials!) The first player receiving a testimonial is 40 and has played for the club for 17 years. He will be my starting B2B midfielder...
  11. Something I don't think has ever worked (in my experience) is when you try and cancel the swap, particularly if you make a sub and don't want those players swapping now. I stopped doing it because on every version I can remember, the swap still happens even when you've cancelled it and specifically told the players not to. I'll have to give it a try and properly report it if it still happens.
  12. Boom, just like that... Inverurie Locos! Edit: and here he is https://imgur.com/cVTYZDF Quick tip for anyone trying this in Scotland, if you holiday to 1st there's usually still one match to play and it's 4th of May before you know who is in the play-off. to be safe, I holiday to 1 May then see when the last fixture is and holiday to that date and save again (on a new file if you like).
  13. Very small thing, I played as Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic on the beta and they had red and black hooped home strip, but I notice in real-life (according to their Wikipedia and their club shop) they play in red and white hoops. (I haven't played the full game yet so I don't know if it's the same as the beta)
  14. For those playing in Scotland, what additional leagues have you loaded? Is it Highland and Lowland Leagues only, or anything below that? And has anyone seen any teams come up that aren't Kelty Hearts, Bonnyrigg Rose Athletic, East Kilbride or Brora Rangers?
