  1. Ended up editing the DB myself to create this. Having the reserve side still in the SPL is a great advantage. Ideal for getting players back to fitness at a decent level. It also lets me move players back and forth between first team in EPL and reserve side is SPL.
  2. I must of got lucky then as the final points total was Torino 79 Juve 76 Roma 74 Inter 73 i only switched to the tactic in December so I am sure I would have got more points if I played a full season. I am playing the next season as Milan so hopefully I will at least match that points total.
  3. Interesting last month to my Torino save... I lost 3 of my best players to injury - GK, Midfield playmaker and Right IF. 3 of my best players.... Lost the cup final to Inter in ET. Final 2 games of the season I needed 1 win to clinch the title from Juve. Second last game drew 1-1 at home to Atalanta... Last game away to Udinese. 3-1 victory seen the title come to Torino !!!! Took the AC Milan job and 5 games into the season I am second in the league and playing some great football. Totally overhauled the squad with buying and selling so hopeful of a good season,
  4. This is getting quite incredible now... i have went on a incredible run and my rivals are dropping points left, right and centre. Got the cup final next game and then 2 league games left with me having a 1 point lead..... I have been offered the AC Milan job (who are looking like finishing 10th) and will be leaving Torino at the end of this season no matter what happens. Restoring Milan to glory will be my next challenge...
  5. The tactic is still working well. 10 game unbeaten run including away wins v Roma and Inter. Up to third in the league and only 3 points behind Juve. Also through to the cup final. My main tweaks are my striker is advanced forward attack and my central midfield playmaker is set to advanced playmaker support. These changes were made as they suit the players (Belotti and Majer)more. I also have play for set pieces selected as I get a lot of goals from indirect free kicks. How important is it that the other central midfielder is set to mezzala.? Would box to box work in this position ?
  6. I had a good first season with Torino (4th) using my own 4-2-3-1 tactic. Second season down in 8th so switched to this tactic in December. It works !!!! Dominating possession, keeping clean sheets and winning 1-0 or 2-0 most games. Does well against bigger teams too e.g draw away to Juve and home wins over AC Milan and Lazio. The high line makes me vulnerable to the long ball over the top but so far a combination of poor finishing and good goalkeeping has prevented teams taking advantage. i dont think its the best formation to watch as sometimes build up play can be slow. However when it w
  7. Managing Celtic I won the double in first year and reached the CL QF. On course for treble in second season and pumped Barca 4-0 in CL group without resorting to underhand financial chicanary that results in administration... it is possible.
  8. Dembele is gone... 30 million to Arsenal on last day of the season. No time to get a replacement...
  9. The key to doing well in Scotland is getting regular CL qualification, buying cheap and selling big. This will be enough to ensure domestic domination and good CL runs. No need to rip off other teams by going bust and leaving trails of debt behind.
  10. So you arrange a transfer on the never never and then go bust....
  11. But you can only buy within the confinds of the wage and transfer budget thst your board sets. You are not seriously telling me that you have a 100,000,000 transfer budget in your first season at Ibrox ? Do you pay the 80 million in yearly increments? Where does the transfer fee come from ? Sorry for labouring the point. Just curious on how its done.
  12. Any version of FM i have played there have been transfer and wage budgets. Yes these can be adjusted to an extent but if you increase wages then transfer budgets drop. I am sorry you are going to have to explain how you can buy 80 million players and pay their wages in your first season. How is it possible?
  13. But surely you have a transfer and wage budget that restricts you?
  14. I am now on my second season. Playing a 4-2-3-1 with Tierney on attack at left back domestically and on support in CL games. Sinclair and Roberts (he came back for another seasons loan) play as inside forwards. If either of those 2 are injured they are replaced by wingers (support). Morgan (from St Mirren) on the left and Forrest on the right. My two centre mids are Ajer as BWM on defend and Almiron as AP on support. Armstrong or Christie plays in the AM role just behind the striker. Dembele and Griffiths rotate for the strikers role with Dembele tending to play in the CL games.
