  1. Brescia and Lecce aren't doing so hot, are they? Cagliari however seems to be playing brilliant and entertaining football, as much as I've heard. Haven't actually seen a game, though.
  2. Partly right. I usually let my team play an aggresive, tiki-taka-ish type of football. And using that playstyle resulted in the worst outcome, you are definitely right about that. I did, however, change and adapt the tactic accordingly when facing a clear underdog, multiple times. It went so far that I loaded up an older state of the save a couple weeks back, had the team train a more defensive, controlling and counter-avoiding tactic, which didn't do quite a lot aswell. I can only assume that this cannot be attended, after all it isn't only them exploiting our style of football, they just play asbolsutely out of their minds every time. Weird, but aye ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Exactly. The outcome of those type of games in real life will mostly have a high possession on the end of the bigger team, aswell as more shots and probably more shots on target for them aswell. The underdogs in this, no matter if win or lose, will almost NEVER dominate the game in statistics, it's either counterattacks or corners/freekicks that result in goals. In the game, they completely clobber the player's team, having all the possession and disgusting amounts of shots. I have nothing against underdogs winning, quite the opposite actually. This is just...going too far, in the sense that nothing I, as a coach, can do, will have any impact whatsoever. They just win. That's all there is. At least, that's what it feels like, quite frustrating. It's both good and sad to see I'm not just being stupid here. This seems to be an issue, and adressing it would be much obliged. Though, it isn't an immense problem to me. Yes, it costs the player valuable points, but in a way it slightly mixes up the ever-so-boring demotion brawl. I've always been the type for drama in my saves, and if the bottom of the table doesn't just pile up all the obvious candidates, that's honestly not too bad. Nice to hear your pennies on the matter, though. I apprechiate it!
  3. Mr. Butterfield is sure to generate some hefty merch-money with those looks, mhm.
  4. David beating the Giant. The small fry reigning supreme over the big fish. Again. And again. And again... I don't know about you people, but I'm experiencing a lot of "Sunday league team beating Barcelona and friends 11-0"-type scenarios. But only if I play the "big fish" in question. In the Bundesliga, I played Köln as I'm a fan of the club and expected to head straight to demotion brawls. Funny enough, I find myself contesting for the UCL spots again and again. So far so good. But I haven't won a SINGLE game against the top guesses for demotion. Not once. And it confuses me. The worst experiences are those with Paderborn. Expected to be demoting at the bottom of the table, which they always do aswell, I'm constantly having games like Köln 20% - 80% Paderborn Possession, Köln 3 - 17 Paderborn shots, Köln 0 - 5 Paderborn result. Then, I'd go on to win 2-1 against Dortmund and the like, all while in fear of seeing another demotion candidate come up as the next fixture. I don't expect to win every game, not in the slightest. I just don't understand the dominance of the smaller teams at all. I've tried a ton of crap, of which nothing really worked. Just wanted to see if any of you lot experience the same type of trauma in the game. And if not, I'm probably doing something wrong. Or maybe, I've installed some sort of Phillistine underdog story mod ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Cheers, DoQmentz
  5. I came to FM19 after playing EA's iteration of the game (their FM13 I reckon) for hundreds of hours. It is certainly hard to compare the two, but generally speaking I'd say this FM is much harder than EA's variant was. The choices you make have much more impact and actually knowing what to do is invaluable compared to guessing and just hoping it works. The match engine itself is always proclaimed as being horrendous to some extend, which I don't think. Actually, it is really sold, even though sometimes acting up a bit. And yes, it can be random. Which is great. When have you ever seen a matchday in real-life football exactly meet everyone's expectation? Yup, doesn't happen. I really enjoy playing SI's FM, it is a great game with loads of passion going into it. Information is well-researched and the game feels really complete, I highly recommend giving it a shot!
  6. Borussia Mönchengladbach, under head coach Marco Rose (named Lukas Almsick im the game for some reason, even after file fixes), is usually playing the diamond with Breel Embolo as a classic number 10. They do rotate positions at times and don't always send two strikers up top as much as I know, but they are damn successful mainly using the 4-4-2 diamond currently.
