  1. No, I can't because 1) I don't save my tactics, 2) I tinker with the tactical instructions game to game, 3) I change the tactic in-match frequently, and 4) I think the recent update tweaked some thing that made the core of the tactic (overlaps and crossing) less effective. Basic outline was alternating between Fluid Counter-Attack and Wing Play, both playing a 4-3-3. I'd change the starting style depending on the opposition and then change in match depending on game state. AMR as a IW(S or A) and RB as a WB(A), but set to aim crosses to the far post. Rest of the team had player instructions tailored to the player in the position.
  2. He's done decent for me as an IF. I don't have the game in front of me, but my general tactic is a 4-3-3 with the AMR and RB set to cross to the far post. Before the January window in which Chiesa arrived, I was rotating Martinelli (IF), Saka (IW), and Smith-Rowe (IF) in the AML position and they've each popped in a few goals across various competitions. Edit: Back at computer Martinelli Overall: 10 starts, 13 subs, 7 goals, 2 assists, 0.59 goals per 90 Europa League: 3 starts, 2 subs, 4 goals, 0 assists Premier League: 4 starts, 9 subs, 1 goal, 1 assist FA Cup: 1 start, 1 sub, 2 goals, 0 assists League Cup: 2 starts, 1 sub, 0 goals, 1 assist By comparison, Saka has 6 starts, 10 subs, 6 goals, and 6 assists Smith-Rowe has 10 starts, 7 subs, 4 goals, and 2 assists.
  3. Have to say, this game has been pretty easy with Arsenal. Started with transfer window disabled. Once the summer window "closed" in September, I asked the board to buy Chiesa. Agreed for £56M and 88k per week. Then in January, had the option again, so asked for one Ruben Dias. Agreed for £52M and 73k per week. Chiesa, Pépé, and Auba destroyed Liverpool at Anfield. Chiesa with four goals, Auba with two, and Pépé with three assists. January window closes and I get the option for a board negotiated transfer again. Ask for Haaland. Agreed for £63M on 83k per week. Silent Stan putting in the money.
  4. I'm assuming my laptop will be fine. Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz Intel® HD Graphics 630 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 32GB RAM
  5. How would it be different than the current system? It's not for-profit DLC.
  6. https://www.cnet.com/news/google-stadia-will-offer-game-trials-livestreaming-and-mod-support-vp-says/ This seems to indicate Stadia will have mod support. Seems to be coming from this interview with the Stadia VP (question asked at ~38:20). Immediately after, he discusses support cross-play (uploading save files from PC to Stadia).
  7. I keep lists for U18, U21, U23, and O23 players and update them every season. I trim during the transition, dropping low rated players and player who don't look to be progressing. By the time they are in the O23 group, the group is pretty thin and consists of players I'll only go after if they get unsettled or reach the final year of their deal.
  8. In this sense, similar to the randomization of a club being target of a takeover, there could be random philanthropic (retired star's setting up an academy, for example) or government investment into football that improves club and/or national team infrastructure, national interest, and youth rating. The national team doing well in a high profile tournament spurs interest, especially among youth, who then take to the sport and play with the club teams and emulate their idols from the national team's glory days. A bit of a cycle.
  9. Right now, the training calendar for the first team has a copy and paste function to copy schedules week to week. But for the youth teams (in this case U23 and U18 in England), do not. Would be nice if that functionality could be added to all training calendars. (my mouse was hovering above August 14 in both screenshots to to display the Copy Paste button)
  10. It would be nice to do some "pending hires" when your own staff are approaching the end of their contracts. For example, my U18 and U23 Managers are out of contract at the end of the season. They did well with my youth teams, but I want to move on to younger staff. With that in mind, it would be nice to be able to offer the U18s manager, effective July 1 for example, after the incumbent's contract is up. Same when you get notice that a staff member is retiring. Either, at that time, their position should be available to fill, or at least be able to do a contract start date that falls after the staff member's retirement date.
  11. I'd also like to see a "Cult Icons" section. Would populate with academy players who are popular with fans but might not be the star players. Or players who put in a great performance or two against rivals or academy products who make the squad registration, but aren't in the starting XI.
  12. I've always wanted to see a better breakdown of the club wage structure to include not only the bonuses a player earned, but how much for each bonus (appearance fee, goal bonus, unused sub fee, etc)
  13. I have 28 players in my first team squad, seven of whom are making the step up for the first time. I'd like to off-load Giroud and Heaton, but no takers and the English window has closed. Asterisks are regens.
