  1. My struggles from my first season have continued to rear their head at the beginning of my second. It feels like my attack is extremely sterile in the way that I don't think my tactic is just not making good chances. After 4 games only one of furthest forward players has an xG of over 1 and my striker seems to be feeding off of scraps having only managed to get off 4 shots in 3 starts and no goals scored. My defence is excellent however considering their quality isn't great. Is this a case of me needing to change roles/duties to make space better or am I doing something wrong in anot
  2. @Rashidi If I were to switch from an IWB what would you suggest? I'm mostly using it atm to cover for the aggressive mezalla.
  3. I've restarted by main Arsenal save for the full game and am currently using this as my main tactic. Do all of these roles make sense for an attacking (but not massively counter-attacking) style? The results have been good so far but I'm very inexperienced with making my own tactic so I don't know if there are any glaring mistakes.
  4. Starting in windowed mode and then switching to fullscreen in preferences seems to have fixed the issue for me for now
  5. Buttons towards the bottom of the screen aren't where they are shown on my screen (normally tend to actually be a couple centimetres below where I see them). My resolution is correct and it says I'm on fullscreen. I've tried deleting the preferences folder but that didn't seem to do anything. DxDiag Info.txt
  6. Currently there is no way (or at least no clear way) to tell the managers of your youth squads how much playing time you'd like a player to have , i.e. First team player or just a squad player of the U23s, or what positon you'd like said player to play in to help their development. Implementing this would greatly help with the development of your young high potential players so that they are prioritised more and can have the playing time they need to develop before going on loan or stepping up to the first team.
  7. I have a very high potential CB in my U18s squad that my U18 manager keeps playing at AMR because he is also compentent there. Is there a way to tell my U18 manager that I specifically want this player to play at CB?
  8. Has anyone ever used leadership courses with any degree of success to make up for the lack of leadership within a squad and is there any criterea that leads to a higher chance of the board accepting the idea of sending a player on said course?
  9. I still need to decide what I want to do with my wide forwards. Both of them seem to be making a high number of mistakes durin matches however I'm not sure if this is due to their roles making them take these risks or maybe the wide attacking width forcing them to make risky passes over a long distance. I am trialling the RW as a winger to try and reduce the amount of people looking to move into the middle of the pitch straight away.
  10. So I've implemented a couple of the changes that were suggested and I am liking the play that I am seeing so far while watching the matches with comprehensive highlights. We are controlling the game very well whilst beating City, Utd and Chelsea at home which are encouraging signs. I experimented with the DLF on both sup and att roles but it didn't quite seem to work well as the match performances were hurt due to the inability of Laca and Nketiah to win headers consistenly (both around 5"10 with jumping reaches of about 10 on average), leading to match ratings of 6.6 - 6.4 on a reg
  11. I have been thinking about increasing the attacking width to spread the defence a bit and give my players more room to operate but I hadn't considered slowing down the build-up play more. I'm hoping that may slow down the play enough that an AF won't get as isolated as it usually does. Flipping the mentalities of the roles occasionally to mix up the attacking play is also an interesting thought that I hadn't considered. I'll be giving that a try to see if it has any effect for me.
  12. Would a DLF, PF or CF theoretically work better in this type of system if I'm looking for that kind of ST, or will it be more of a case of trying each out and seeing what works best? Both lacazette and Nketiah are most comfortable as AFs but I feel like they'd be heavily isolated as the lone striker due to the roles aim of trying to sit on the shoulder most of the time. If I do notice this would it be a sign for me to maybe clear some space for them by dropping the AMC into the CM strata or making the ST not drop deep? I have been thinking of swapping the sides of the DM and VOL
  13. So I'm currently playing as Arsenal with this tactic, it working well for me as I'm currenly 2nd in my first season however I'm worried that my striker might be getting in the way of my AM by dropping to let the IF overlap. The theory behind all of this is that because we're a good team then pretty much every team is going to play a low block against us so I need to play more in-front of them instead of tring to get in behind, hence my choice of striker. I tried to create a possesion style of play to drag defenders out of place and make space to attack, but with my striker dropping
  14. I’m not sure how many people have mentioned this idea but while looking at real-life tactics for inspiration on how I want to make tactics in-game I’ve come across a lot of times where is has been stated that the shape of a team usually changes when defending/attacking. Such as Arsenal defending in more of a 4-4-2 but attacking in more of a 2-3-5 shape. I think it’d be good to have this implemented as it would also get rid of the confusion that the shape seen on the current tactic screen is more of a defensive/out of possession shape, and would allow more creativity and potentially m
  15. Ah yes, I did misunderstand that a bit. How should I look to setup with a shorter passing style in my current shape?
