  1. It really shouldn't be this complicated! I have watched many videos where people say "I want to Work Ball into Box and have my players Run at the defence" so they select it. As for the roles, it is ridiculous to suggest an attacking midfielder linking the Midfield to the Striker cant play with a box to box midfielder. Starting positions suggest a Box to Box starts inside his own half. The "Space" her runs into can surely be made vacant by an attacking midfield if need be, its called positional play. "If I am making this un, you drop in behind me to cover the space". As for an inverte
  2. So would a B2B Alongside a BWM (D) in the pivot with an AP on Attack in front of them work? Or best to avoid a B2B in this formation all together? So really, what you are saying, is to use a DLP(S) + BWM(D) or DLP(S) + CM (D) combination for the pivot with an AM(S) in front of them? Quick, passing style is what I want to achieve. Retention is equally as important. One of the midfield two pairing needs to be capable of bringing the ball forwards (carrying) whilst the other is to stay further back to cut passing lanes and retain the ball. Watching Chelsea against Live
  3. You advised not to use a B2B midfielder next to the BWM as it is a roaming role. So I assume the only specialist 'holding role' really is the DLP and being as the BWM is defend duty, I should use support for the playmaker. With this in mind, I should try to get the best out of Havertz as an AMC on support (or should I use attack duty?) That's right. If I use the the centre midfield (pivot) roles as DLPs (MCL) and BWMd (MCR), I am thinking which defensive roles could also be used in that MCR position. This is for when I need to sub out or rest Kante (see my tactics screens
  4. This is how it essentially looks at the moment with the changes (ignore the suspension to Kovacic, I will swap him out for Mount). The biggest query is who to sub/rotate Kante with. I only have players capable of playing DLP or B2B really - I have Havertz (used as AM), Kante, Kovacic, Jorginho, Mount and Gilmour as my CM options
  5. So as mentioned in Question 2 above, should I select a DLP-S to go with the BWM-D in the pivot? If so, am I ok to sub the BWM-D (Kante) out for A DLP-D (Jorginho) or will those 2 Deep Lying Playmakers conflict? I agree with your points here so will remove the Pass Into Space instruction. I will also add Work Ball Into Box as my players tend to take ridiculous shots if that instruction isn't applied. I may also remove Be More Expressive to keep things more controlled, what do you think? If so, My instructions will look as below Formation: 4-2-3-1 Menta
  6. I wondered if I could have some feedback on a few tactical ideas I have in mind for my Chelsea save. I know any tactic I create will need a little bit of tweaking during pre-season, but I want to create a 'Primary' tactic as a starting blue print. The Idea is I want to play a quick, short passing game with through balls to my quick forwards (Werner, Pulisic, CHO) when they are on. When possession is lost, I want my team to win the ball back quickly in order to exploit any space left on a counter. The Attackers to be quick and direct, the midfield to be aggressive and to retain the ba

I hit continue and upon processing the results for that day, I get a crash dump (similar to the attached) and am forced to quit the game. So far, I have tried the following but with no success; 1.

  10. Thank you. Still struggling with the crashes
  11. I just sent you via a message, thank you
  12. Thank you for the offer, it wont allow me though as the file size is too large. I imagine you mean the current save?
  13. The 30th November 2019 is a Saturday so there are lots of games played on this day. English Leagues, FA Cup etc. No European fixtures. If this is fixture related, then there are 2 things that are confusing me with this... 1. Why does the game wait until November 30th to crash? There are a lot of games played already by this date. 2. If this was to do with fixture generating, again why is it not crashing until the 30th November when most competitions are up and running.
  14. I have made several changes to the editor date including; - Player and staff transfers - Some player editing - Staff movements In addition, regarding club/league changes, - Moved clubs around in the English leagues to reflect the promotion/relegations of last season - Changed history (1st/2nd/3rd place + playoff winners) for English league - Changed last position finish for all English clubs - Changed Champions League & UEFA Cup registered teams based on respective league finishes (European competitions was more of a swap thing, same num

  16. I think I am nearly there with the Formation in terms of playing style. It may not be what was suggested, but seems to be working and getting good results 4 games in although no elite teams played yet. Below is the Team instructions, Formation (with Roles) and players I have used in those positions so far. On the wide men....I did ideally want Pulisic as an IF(A) ideally (so Werner can back him up) but neither seem to play that IF (A) role very well,.. unless its to do with the striker? IW (A) is suiting him so far, hence the line-up below. However, I wonder if I am playing the corr
  17. So I tried this recommendation...it is aweful! I ran through pre-season to learn tactic and gel as a team, plus 2 games into the season against Burnley (0-0 draw at home) and Southampton (1-1 draw away). Left winger (Pulisic / Werner / CHO) all have very low ratings, 6.4 or 6.5 mainly. Havertz does NOTHING. His ratings are around 6.5 also as the suggested Mezzala (tried on both right and left) The strikers used so far (Werner / Abraham) are terrible, only 3 goals between then in all games and 4 games in pre-season were against low rep opposition). erm........
  18. I am guessing this setup needs a support role behind that inside forward so Kante/Kessie definitely on the left instead of the Mezzala on the left. Would you have the DLP(d) in the DM position or have Kante there as a DM(d) and have a DLP(s) next to the Mezzalla? If the latter, would it be better then to have the AML Inside forward on attack? Finally, any reason you swapped the centre back pairing?
  19. Looks a good solution at 4-2-3-1 although I dont think Mount is defensively sound enough to form the pivot. This could be a role for Jorginho/Kovacic though as a DLP on Support. What roles would you assign to the above?
  20. Please bare with me, I am a bit of a rookie at Football Manager. I am about to start a new Chelsea save and want to primarily play a "4-1-4-1 Wide" with a "4-2-3-1" alternative formation. The style of play and objectives are to; - Control the possession with quick passing. - Utilise pace and skill of wingers (Pulisic, Ziyech, Hudson-Odoi) to create/score. - Utilise attacking qualities of Full Backs (Chillwell / James) to support attack. - Balance the CM with current options available (Kovacic / Kante / Jorginho + Havertz / Mount) Set out as below, I have str
  21. Really appreciate the feedback, thanks for taking the time. Two last questions if that is ok please? Firstly, Is there any unwritten rules so to speak about the 'balance' you mention? By that I mean "You need one of this type, one of this type and one of this type in your 3 man midfield". For example, the great Barcelona midfield had Busquets (HB - D) in the DMC Position with Xavi (DLP - S) and Iniesta (AP - A) in the CM Positions. A defensive player, a holding midfielder and a more forward thinking midfielder. I would like to think "I need this type of player in DMC, this type of pl
  22. See attached for Barkley's profile See attached for Ziyech's profile No, I am saying that Kante is nailed on for that RCM spot (as BBM or BWM). But, when he is unavailable, what role can replace that role he occupies without causing an issue. For instance, If I have a Mez (A) in LCM, what roles can compliment that considering my Centre Midfielders I have available (I have attached screenshots of Kante, Mount, RLC, Kovacic, Van Ginkel & Barkley) I also uploaded Wingers for role comparison to what we have discussed I completely get that,
  23. I think this is close on the Left side to be honest so thank you for that. I could have Mount / RLC rotating in that LCM role long term as they are young enough to lock that position down between them. RLC Traits are "Runs with ball through Centre" + "Tries to play way out of trouble" so I am guessing this means he would be a ball carrier. Mount Traits are "Arrives late in opposition area" + "Curls ball" so he would be that goalscorer as opposed to a ball carrier. I could even play Barkley here as the Mez (A) I am guessing? Now the Right Side of the team. Presu
  24. I want Tammy to be one of the main sources of Goals here as he is for Chelsea in Reality. Perhaps a DLF (A) would achieve this? Although, it will take some training as FM 2020 sees him as a PF/AF Regarding the Playmaker situation, I think for sure Jorginho would play a DLP (D) here in the DMC Position. This way he can dictate the play from deep. I semi-understand what you are saying about the AP role being in conflict although not unheard of. For this style of play, the only other way I can think of here is to have the LCM as a Mezzala which Kovacic and Mount can both play. However, I did
