    Beta 19.2 Playing Very Well

    I agree. The 19.1 ME was very predictable. My wide guy would always dally while two defenders closed him down before crossing. One on ones were always hit into the belly of the keeper. Through ball opportunities were always ignored. Now, I watch and it's like, whoa, "I didn't see that coming". The 19.2 ME has a better variety of outcomes from similar situations. Not sure if that makes sense but a big thumbs up!

    How fast do you play and why?

    I'm pretty screwed up as I fall in and out of love with formations. I wanted to play with a HB so I did a 4-3-3 wide. I got to FEB in my first season. I found a kid in JAN that would make a great TQ so I started a new season with my team so I could sign the TQ. I do that kind of thing a lot. I think in 2012 I played 6 seasons. Since then I usually only play one, get bored with the formation and players and start something and different.

    Average Gamer Age

    I'm 57 and live in the US. Been playing since 2008. I think my version was called World Wide Manager then.
  4. Too many support roles for a "positive" set up, IMO. I'd set up your CF to attack and one of your WB paired up with an IF on attack. Three playmakers in the midfield is an issue too. I play the same formation and score plenty with Newcastle with only one change change to personnel. I need to work on the defensive tweaks.
  5. I've stuck guys in reserves and after the window closes offered them mutual termination and sometimes they'll take it for zero compensation.
  6. Great post and this is just what I've been working towards. I like my team to play a "lethal touch" style of football. Great read and you've given me plenty to think about.
  7. I'm determined to make a 433 with a half back. I'm going: Muto PF a Kenedy IF a Ritchie IF s Hayden BBM s Shelvey DLP s Soucek HB d Dummet FB s Lascelles CD d Fernandez CD d Yedlin FB a Dubravka SK d I'll be following this thread to see how you do.
  8. Toon has a transfer budget of 23M on main version.
  9. bumming about no stadium editor. Would have loved St James Park with "ASHLEY OUT!" signs plastered all over the park...

    FM19: Hidden Gems

    Ismael Bennacer
  11. I always set my CDs for tighter marking.
  12. Sometimes there are other factors that have an effect on a tactic. I often see my team make blatantly bad passes when they are not gelled and/or are not playing confidently, which can come down to a few good team talks.
  13. IMO, you have to watch your tactic and see what does and doesn't work because at some point, when you have success, you'll have to know how to adjust to your opponents more defensive tactics. You'll have to find ways to break them down and be able to react to the inevitable counter.
  14. My guess would be that if an AssMan has hardness of training of 20 (or 1) it would be mitigated by man management, level of discipline, etc. If that is the case with FM19 then I don't see how anyone could calculate the ramifications because of the amount of variables. A reasonable outcome would be that if an AssMan is running the guys ragged in training you'd either see their fitness drop or they'd start complaining to you.
  15. yes, i see the same thing
