  1. Thank you. I will try out a few of your changes!
  2. My Milan team plays good football, but have problems scoring. I have watched a few matches, but can not see any clear reason. In every match I have played, we have had mor than 20 shots. Almost never a single big goal scoring chance, and just a few goals. See example under. Any thoughs?
  3. I need some input on how to create a tactic, and team, based on the strategy of former Norway coach Egil "Drillo" Olsen. I don't want to replicate the tactic he used, but only use his strategical framework. What kind of tactics would promote this strategy? What kind of TI and PI should I use? What kind of player quality should I have? What kind of player traits would should I look for? The attacking strategy I want to use is (the first leads to the second, the second leads to the....and so on): And the defensive strategy is: "Drillo" "quotes": "If you don't score within 4 moves after winning the ball, you should just give the ball back to the other team." "The team out of possession is more likely to score than the team in possession." "Five players in the midfield will win the ball more often in the midfield than four players will." "Never give the opposition a opportunity to counter on your team." "Football is a game without the ball." "Defense is the best attack." "Passes within the defense is a deadly sin." Thanks
  4. I still think something is wrong here. Could it be because german players don't get to play in the nation team? Take a look at Jorunarigha: One of my best players. He has played 198 matches for me in 5 Seasons. He has got 3 years left of his contract. He is rated 4 stars by my staff. Valued at £2,7m. His reputation is 5,5 stars. Compared to a similar player, which my scout also rates at 4 stars: The value difference is huge. I can understand that a played with a big contract is valued more, but not that much more. And Paris is a bigger club than Hertha, but we have just won the CL twice in to seasons. The problem with the low value is that every big club in the world wants to sign them, but refuse to bid more that £4-5m. I would value him at about £50m. This results in 40-50 bids every transfer window from Man Utd, Man City, Real M, Barcelona, Bayers and so on... And naturally Jorunarigha wants to leave. But I can not sell for that price because it is just unrealistic...
  5. Yes, I understand that. But would they be valued so low by the game when they are some of the best players in the best team in Europe? Other players in the squad don't have the same problem; Weiser £35m, Meier £55m, Adzic £47m.
  6. Some players just won't rise in value. I my Hertha save, we have won the league, CL and cup the last two seasons. Still some of my best players (4stars) have a value that just don't reflect the quality. M GK (Rajkovic £6m) and my CDs (Stark £7m, Toruningha £3m). They are all 22-26 years and all of the biggest clubs try to sign them, but will not bid much more that the value of the players... What is this all about?
  7. Well, I expect for them to perform. Weiser's stats after 2,5 seasons with a winger in front om him are 81 matches, 2 assists and 6,93. For 2 seasons I have played a wide playmaker or a IF in front of him, and Weiser's stats these seasons where 74 matches, 20 assists and 7,42. I understand that a wing back and a winger often will do the same job, but it is not possible to get something good out of the WB when playing a winger?
  8. Ok, but my problem is that I don't get the most out of my wing back when I have a winger ahead of him. Both on support andattack. But if I don't pay Chiesa as a winger, I don't get the most out of him,but then Weiser is great.
  9. Thanks for all the feedback! By the way; In my team now my best to players are Weiser, who is a great attacking fullback, and Chiesa, who is a typical winger. Is it possible to get the best out of both a winger and an attacking fullback/wingback?
  10. I would be greatfull if someone could give me some feedback on my tactic. All of my strikers underperform and gets few chances. My wide players often performs good. If I change the striker to DF(S), there is way to many long shots. We often underperform against teams on the lower part of the league, and play good football againt the better teams (vs Bayern 3-2, vs Real Madrid 5-0, vs Barca 2-2). Often against bad teams we only have 2-4 shots during the whole game and 65% possession. Thanks
  11. I played him in the wing position for 3 seasons with my Preston team in the PL. He was great for me and for England. Sold him on to City for about £120 m.
  12. At the start of season 4, this is my first and second team (John/Nelson regens). Still no signings, but nice results every Seasons. We won the PL 3 times, CL 2 times (+finale loss to L'pool season 1), 2 FA-Cup wins and 2 wins in the Carabao Cup. This is fun I pretty much play the same way every match, but sometimes move the mentality to Control when we are ahead away from home to the big Clubs.
  13. Two great seasons! Here are som pics: Season 1 & 2: Season 2 first team and tactic: CL Transfers:
  14. Who do I get my Preston U23 into the reserves League? It`s been three years since we won promotion to the PL, but still the U23 only take part in the Checkatrade Throphy.
  15. Leaving a man at det edge of the area would be a good idea, but it is not possible on defensive free kicks. They can stay in the box, in the wall or in attack. In attack: Would this be the option of "staying with taker" or "stay back if needed"?
  16. Just a simple question: How do I cover Chamberlain in these free kick situations? This happens a lot on this game!
  17. Lets say you manage Burnley and are on a 6 matches loosing streak. The next match is at Emirates Stadium against Arsenal who has not lost in 22 matches. What do you do? I want to learn all about your pre-match routine to a match like this, your tactics, your mindset (do you try to win, go for a draw or just play through the match as quick as possible while you make a cup of tea?) What do you tell your players in a match like this? Would you fine a player who makes a few mistakes in a match like this and gets a 4,3ish rating?? Thanks!
  18. A few times every season my teams concede from indirect free kicks from way out, where the taker finds a man on one of the wings totally unmarked. He than crosses in and finds an attacker who scores. See pic. Has anyone found a way to defend from this?
