  1. I'll probably wait until the actual release, but this will just be a fun save for me, not my main one this time. My main save will be in Germany because I've never managed there before. It will either be my favourite German team Bayer Leverkusen or the sleeping giants Kaiserslaurten in 3. Liga.
  2. Yeah pretty pointless starting a FM21 save now if you are planning on buying FM22.
  3. Tbh you don't need one, all the info you need is in the OP including a screenshot of the tactic.
  4. I thought you used a 442 diamond? Are you now using something else?
  5. Hmm...I reckon I'll try out the 433 for United this time on FM22. Only thing that makes me unsure on the 433 is, I like my striker to be the main goalscorer in my team, I would imagine it's easier to make a striker prolific in a 4231 because you have an AMC behind? Or have you managed to make your striker a regular goalscorer in your 433?
  6. Great stats there. I did have him in FM21, I think it was the 3rd season I got him on a free, he didn't score like that but he still done well for me, I played him on the wing but he's now too slow so I would only play him as a striker now, probably poacher. I've stopped playing FM21 though, waiting for the new game now.
  7. Who here will be buying FM22 and will be starting a Utd save? Considering formations, always feel like going 4231 because that's what we use irl. I will most likely use my 4231 from FM21 but also considering a 433 possibly, or a 442 diamond. I'm not great at the game, so 3 atb formations seem too exotic for me lol, but I'm tempted to try them especially with the new WCB role. Rashford can easily play up top and same with Greenwood, so I don't necessarily have to use a formation with wingers (4231, 433). They are my favourite formations though so I'll probably ened up using one of them again.
  8. @bosque You are not alone mate! I have exactly the same struggles as you and had even given up on FM again the past few months after just getting back into it in early 2021. I wasn't going to buy FM22 but have decided I will give it another go. I basically have watched football my whole life but never really looked at it from a tactical perspective, purely for entertainment reasons. You would think I would be able to pick up on things along the way, but the tactical side has never really interested me, which is kinda an important aspect of being a manager on FM 😂 I love the game though despite this, so I don't want to give up on it. I really enjoy other parts of the game, like developing players, scouting, transfer market etc but I'm just not very good at tactics because I lack an understanding of what to look for if results goes wrong etc. I usually lose patience and stop playing. @CleonWow, the legend returns! Welcome back 🤗 Basically my main problem is actually imagining how my team should play on the pitch, what should it even look like? Also, what to look for to see if it's actually working or not? Then if it's not working, how to fix it? I do have vague ideas of what style of football I enjoy though, for an example; I'm very much in the high aggressive press camp. I used to be obsessed about having as much possession % as possible but now I'm not as fussed, as long as I have general control of the game in the opponent's half. Possession % would be a bonus, but regardless of that, I want quick short exchanges, almost one touch football. Goals scored like the famous Wilshere one in his days at Arsenal. That's just my ideal style of football, but obviously I don't necessarily have to use that as a template every time, as I would imagine it would only suit the top teams in their respective leagues? Seems to me like: much shorter passing, maybe higher tempo (depending on mentality), counter press, dribble less, higher D line with higher LOE, just as a few examples of the TI's I could use. So I guess I do have some sort of idea of how I want my teams to play. I did actually create a fairly successful 4231 partly based on that style on FM21 so I will certainly use it as a base for FM22 if I use the 4231 again. My problem with that is, I put the roles, duties + TI's and PI's together purely based on what I felt could work and luckily it did in terms of results and I mostly settled on it because of positive results. If things are going wrong in a game though then it's just guesswork on my part on how to turn things around etc, I have no idea how to fix it. I know it's a successful tactic but I would still like to understand how and why it works, you know? If I was to make a few duty or role changes to the tactic, I don't think I'd notice any difference 😅 I can watch games and have no idea how I'm winning or losing, I just always 'hope' it works, lol. Even if I decided not to use my own tactics and go with someone else's, well I don't feel like I could tbh. I have OCD, and have this really annoying obsession where I feel I can't use anyone else's tactics, I'm not even comfortable using the in game presets as they aren't my tactics so to me it seems pointless playing the game, which is pretty funny 😅 I'm also obsessed with getting my striker to always score the most goals in my team, like @PequenoGenio mentioned on page 1. This is just a personal preference though, I love prolific strikers 😊
  9. Literally just need Haaland and Camavinga and we're ready to go 😂
  10. Aye but some England fan on Twitter said Gilmour was the 3rd worst player on the pitch and Mount was the best according to OPTA stats! 🤣
  11. I've stopped playing now. Didn't win anything in the 1st season, 2nd season we won the CL but nothing else. 3rd season we won the league and FA Cup, should have won the CL also really. 4th season started well but ultimately starting to get bored already so I have taken a break.
  12. Yeah, I have him at Utd. I'm in season 4 and signed him in season 3. He's been hit by a few injuries, so his physicals took a knock when he was out, also his bravery. He was amazing for me in his 1st season, scoring in most games he started as you can see, he had a lot of sub appearances but mostly scored in the games he started. I played him on the wing but now with his low physicals he plays as a poacher up top in my 4231, he's not 1st choice any more though. He signed on a player coach deal, and he's a pretty handy coach also.
  13. I wouldn't say so, as crossing is a different technique from taking a corner which is a dead ball situation.
  14. There are multiple ways to set up a balanced 4231. You don't have to use the 2 MC's as holders and yes, you can use 2 support wingers, I do that myself in my 4231. For a more detailed answer it would be better for you to open up a thread
  15. Ah yeah I forgot you are Dortmund I had it in my mind you had also bought Haaland and Sancho but obviously you already own them
  16. How on earth have you managed that? I would assume monthly installments?
  17. Rashidi's favourite AMC role in the game is the Trequartista. I've seen it used in multiple setups, so it can definitely be very effective depending on how you set up.
  18. Yeah that's true. Yeah I tend to get good ratings for most of the front 4, usually though one winger can perform well and the other is a little more quiet in some games, but that's to be expected sometimes. The two behind do really well. As you can see I have went for a triple playmaker system, I really wanted the focus being on those 3 combining with each other and it works really nicely for me. They dominate games which is what I wanted.
  19. PF (A) IW (S) TREQ (A) IW (S) DLP (S) RPM (S) WB (S) CD (D) BPD (D) FB (S) (Overlap) Those are my roles and duties, kind of goes against the views in here, I know
  20. I use a similar system to yours and it's been absolutely fine for me. There isn't a fixed rule that means certain roles and duties can't work together etc, it just depends on what you want to do yourself. This season my Treq at AMC doesn't have many assists, but he's my top goalscorer which is nice. He's absolutely my top performer but then again he is Bruno Fernandes who is absolutely insane in this game.
