  1. I echo the same question as Shauny1990. Whenever I play with a much higher def line I always seem to let through passes over my def line and a striker will have a one on one with my keeper. Even though I try to put real pressute on the opposition they often find one or two through balls. I also have a good defender who's quick and reads the game pretty well. So how do you prevent this and manage to play a high line?
  2. Hi I manage Chelsea and I play a tactic that reminds of yours 4-1-4-1. I have one question, how was your thought process when you come up with counter/very fluid and control/structured? I also have two tactics but I have counter/structured and control/fluid.
  3. Özil, if you were playing against the top sides away from home, did you ever change mentality to counter? My experience with Chelsea is that if I don't play with a lower mentality they often seem to score a few against me. Great thread Özil!
  4. Thanks RTH, good to know. I also wonder if there is anyone who plays FMT on an iPad Pro? I am curious about how Football Manager would be like on that particular tablet. I have never played FM on a tablet, so I don't know what to expect. At the moment, I am pondering whether to buy an iPad Air 2 or an iPad Pro. Anyone who wants to give me some advice your welcome. Obviously, an iPad Pro is a lot more expensive, but since I am planning to use it pretty much over a couple of years, I feel that I can afford it. Anders, Sweden
  5. Another question, sorry if it's been asked before. Are you able to train ppms in FMT? I am thinking about buying an iPad Pro or an iPad Air 2 very soon. Anders
  6. Hi Is it possible to tutor players in FM touch mode? Thanks, Anders, Sweden
  7. I am thinking of playing with two deep-lying playmakers as a central midfield pairing, one on defend and the other on support. How would you think that would work in a set-up like in the opening post? Anders, Sweden
  8. Very thoughtful and interesting. I also have those kind of ideas on how I want my team to play. I also like Simeone's Atleti and Tuchel's Dortmund. I am a big supporter of Chelsea since I was five years old. Now into my fourties... so I usually when I have time I play as Chelsea. I have a few questions for you Marsupian: 1. Do you notice any problems with the Offside trap? In my first game when I tried to play the Offside trap it took less than 10 min for Welbeck to score from a through ball over my defensive line who had tried to play offside. Do you notice much difference if playing without it? 2. I have tried a set-up like yours but with play narrower since I want to compact the middle and channel balls out wide. Any thoughts on this from you? 3. I have also a center midfield pairing consisting of a dlp (d) and a dlp (s) that works great since both seem to hold the middle and liberates the wingbacks to venture forward. Does your combination of a cm pairing that roams hold the middle well? I have played with flexible team shape but switched over to very fluid to try your set-up and I noticed a big improvement in combination play in the oppositions third which was very pleasing to see. I felt that my players played with more freedom and movement which they should do with a change in team shape. I will consider changing to this permanently, but I am unsure whether I will be as solid defensively as I have been. So far I have conceded very few goals. I will show my set-up and settings later if I manage to upload it. Anders, Sweden
  9. I have just finished reading this great thread. One of the most interesting I have read. I printed it out and took a comfortable seat in my favorite armchair with a cup of coffee. I am inspired to having a go with a base formation like the 4-5-1 and then see how I can develop it. One question though: I am not able to view all the pictures in this thread. Is it because my web browser or is it just not possible to view all pictures? There seem to be quite many that I can't view...
  10. How have you set up your wingers? You mention that they sit narrower. Have you given them PI sit narrower? Have you given your striker any PI? Also, do you have any other TI than close down more and push much higher up? I will start a new save with my beloved Chelsea with your set up. I will also look at Thomit's assymetric formation. Both use very fluid which appeals to me.
  11. You're Ajax and Holland setup looks interesting. I am tempted to go the universality way by playing very fluid and generic roles. I have one question: if you use for example an advanced playmaker support in midfield, how will he play differently compared to a cm support when you use very fluid. I hope you understand what i mean...
  12. Let's see if we can get this brilliant thread going again! I am very, very curious about Thomas Tuchel's new project, i e Dortmund. He seems to be a superb manager that I expect will sooner rather than later bring back Dortmund to the top. I intend to follow him closely during this season at Signal Iduna Park. So far I have downloaded all of Dortmund's games and I have began to have a look at them in detail (after work and when the kids have gone to bed ). I am about to finish my last coaching badges here in Sweden and will finally be able to focus on my team and watching more football. These badges are exhaustive and they demand a lot from the coaches, but at the same time they are a joy to do because you're passionate about football and always hungry for more insight and knowledge. Right now I coach a very determined and skillful team here in Sweden (middle division) and we're about to finish our season and I am already thinking of how to improve our game for next season. I will try to see if I can use some of Tuchel's ideas into my team next season. As I'm a fan of Dortmund and Tuchel I would like to see this thread come alive again and more people to share their ideas about Dortmund. I am a passionate FM player, when I get the time, and hopefully later on I will be able to share my thoughts about how to set up a Dortmund game in FM and also sharing thoughts about how they play in real life. I must say that I really think the author of this thread has done a good job of replicating Dortmund in FM. Therefore, it would be interesting to see if you have found time to continue with your save or someone else for that matters. As I said, hopefully I will contribute more when I soon will get more time to play and write about BVB. Also, if someone know of more articles, than those mentioned before in this thread, then I would be very grateful since I am looking for more info and knowledge about Tuchel and his thoughts about his philosophy of how Dortmund will play.
  13. Ok, thanks. If I play on medium graphic settings what will the difference be compared to high settings? I also would like to keep this machine for a few years and still be able to play new versions of FM. Do you think I will be able to do that regarding the graphics card? Finally, would it be a major difference regarding how many leagues I could run if I choose the smaller processor, this one: 2,7 GHz double Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 3,1 GHz compared to the one I mentioned above? Thanks again for your help.
  14. Hi Excellent thread and very helpful thanks to all friendly people. I am about to buy a Macbook Pro. Specs: 3,1 GHz double Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3,4 GHz 8 GB 1866 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM 128 GB PCIe-based flash store Intel Iris Graphics 6100 I will use it for work but since I am a devoted FM supporter I also want to be able to play the game really well. Will the graphic card be enough for 3d viewing in FM? Also, will the processor be able to handle 8-10 leagues with the two highest divisions? Just so I get a hint of what to expect. It would also be nice to be able to play the game for the next three years relatively ok. Thanks in advance for all help, Anders, Sweden
  15. Thanks for the Quick reply! I want to be able to run 5-6 Leagues with the two top divisions. It's enough if I can use the Graphics card at medium setting. Another Point, is that I also want to be able to play FM 16 on it. Do you Think it will run5-6 Leagues with a large database?
