  1. Of course they would praise. I've seen managers come out say how pleased they are despite a loss many times. I'm sure that in the dressing room there is a lot of praise. Hammer Barca away and go in at half time and your not going to be like you weren't bad but... No it would be more along the lines of - been great out there. keep doing what you are doing because you are beating them in every area except the score. That move back to front that split them open 5 times was a joy. Everyone is doing great. I've been in dressing rooms when we've been losing and the manager has praised us befor
  2. If we are going on pure realism of simulation then if any team were to absolutely destroy Barca away playing breath taking football then they would receive praise - a lot of praise. If you score a 1v1 does it log as a ccc now it has been scored? I don't think it does. Did you see what happened to Genoa using fluid? Gegen still the 'win button'
  3. Problem solved. Cracked the park the bus... Edit. Sissoko scored 2 screamers. How unrealistic!
  4. Thanks for the offer but it's ok. I'll just do what I always do, keep clicking different things and eventually something works. This is the totally random nature of this fantastic game. I've drawn against Bournemouth at home but then beat Chelsea away so I must be doing something right. Just lost 4-0 to Barca away with 56% possession 17 shots, 10 shots on target, 3 CCCs, 5HCs. Played beautiful football. Seriously expansive sexy football. Praised at half time losing 2-0, praised at full time lost 4-0 praised defense, midfield and attack. Player ratings were low 6's even though they
  5. Bob was sacked in December using the fluid counter LLOE. It was a highly recommended preset for their team too.
  6. Thanks for your response. I was merely using this to state that everyone is likely doing this. Everyone with a little football experience that is. The point I'm making is it doesn't always work. The solutions I have tried to win the games I can't win haven't worked. It's just me seeking perfection I guess. You can't win every game right? The frustration is that I find no solution or change to what I'm seeing on the pitch. My players go from world beaters to Barrow and there seems to be no changes I can make. I just have to take the draw/loss
  7. This is of course important but it doesn't always make a successful team either. I'm sure most people who are avid football fans, and most who play FM as much as us I dare say are, know what this looks like. It doesn't always transfer to success. If a defense is slow but physically strong and tall and good at heading what would common sense and knowledge of football tell you? If a winger has 20 for dribbling but cant cross for toffee, what should his instructions be? Similarly, if a team is blocking all your shots and passes and stifling your attacking movement, what does common sense tell you
  8. Tactics which should work don't and ones which shouldn't often do... I mean this was my Leverkusen tactic which won the league. Should I have won the league with this team? Certainly not. What was it about this tactic that was so successful? I switched between cautious and positive mentality. 32 goals from Volland!!! It's insane.
  9. To be honest though I haven't played any of the top 6 yet and have only played 6 games.
  10. I find that having 3 very differing tactics allows you to have familiarity in a lot of styles so you can adapt to the situation. I'm quite good at adapting mid game, as you can see, I'm 1st. I've had success elsewhere in this iteration too. Weymouth got to league 1, Boavista finished 4th then 6th and Got back to back promotions with Bradford. Won the league with Leverkusen 1st season. Got Swansea promoted in my first season with them too. What I can't find a solution to however, is overcoming the park the bus, tight marking that Bournemouth, Brighton and other teams use in this game.
  11. The Spurs top of the league one is the fourth one.
  12. These aren't for the same team lol. I just loaded them all onto the one team. This is with multiple teams.
  13. True. Although you could also argue that the LLOE tactic got sacked on both occasions. I'll do another one tomorrow. What is clear is that the preset Catenaccio is not the tactic to go for it seems
  14. I honestly didn't want to cause so many problems. :/ It's not 'scripted' and everything that happens in the ME, happens completely organically. It may feel it at times, but it is just your tactics. Regarding, simulation (on a personal level) produces more favourable results than playing through the ME. That's all I wanted to say. Edit: And more realistic results too.
  15. Well, Bob Johnson was sacked by Chelsea using a LLOE Fluid Counter. A bit unfairly I have to say. Failure to qualify for the Champions league seemed to cost him. After losing in the final of the Euro Cup, he was sacked the next day. Here's the results. HLOE 2 - O LLOE
  16. Chelsea Gegenpress preset finished 4th and reached the QF of the Champions League.
  17. Sure thing. I'm midway through Chelsea's Gegenpress. I will use Counter attack for them. Any particular formation you think LLOE is effective with?
  18. Does anyone have a team to suggest who would benefit from LLOE with the players they have? I am also happy to use any LLOE formation that will give the best outcome. The first two were done using preset tactics and when on Holiday had use current match tactics ticked but did not suggest the players to use. The AM was the same in both simulations.
  19. I Just checked back and Bob Johnson was sacked using the LLOE formation with Genoa. He was sacked in November.
  20. How do you mean? Yes I can try. I have done the first run with Genoa. Here are the results with the gegenpress. They had a media prediction of 14th and finished 9th. They had no natural left sided IF but were suggested to be good at gegen by AM. I am in the process of running the LLOE tactic now.
  21. This is profoundly accurate, "The tool of an argument that's already losing legs is to continually go after the poster." It also highlights your hypocrisy. Nevertheless, just because you state something you believe to be true, doesn't make it true. Finally, I point you in the direction of Mark Twain. I feel you could learn a lot from him. Good day sir!
  22. What is 'waaaay' ? The original point I made was that simulating games produces more successful results than the ME. You got a little bit upset, clearly by your response and heated language and again, your outcry here only further confirms what I had initially pointed out. That you are upset. Once again, I can only apologise for hurting your feelings. I do not mind that you challenge what I say. That is the point of these forums. The scripted point I made still stands from my experience. That's just my feelings towards the game. I don't play Fifa personally, but I am aware of the scripted
  23. I will simulate a season with a few teams using the following formations, Catennacio and Gegenpress presets. and will see which is more successful. Obviously, there will be variables at play but it will be interesting to see how different the final standings are. I'll try with a low mid and high performing team. I hope the lower line of defence tactic wins with the more defensive minded squads and teams that aren't as industrious.
  24. I know it can hurt a lot of people when anyone 'criticises' the game or makes points that might devalue the 'tactical masterclass' the game is able to deliver. This is not my intention. I do not wish to devalue what you are doing. Regarding the emotive language you use, 'desperately' and 'mangle' I sense I am touching a nerve, which again is not my intention. I am merely stating my findings from playing around a lot with different things. There is no desperation in it, just observation and experience. "All you've shown is that one way of generating the result is more detailed than the ot
