  1. Anyone else signed Ahmed Kutucu from schalke? First time signed him for £4m start of second season and he won me the europa league that season scoring 34 in all competitions. Now worth £40m and only still young. Great all round striker
  2. I’ve had him before at Brighton Signed for £5m. Is a little inconsistent for me and goes missing in some big games but play him as AML - IF and watch his value sky rocket
  3. hi all, does anyone have any files to share for stadium and city packs please?
  4. Unreal response ms and it’s helped massively to understand. Thanks massively to both you. Will try put the suggestions tonight and will report back if that’s ok why you!
  5. A lot of things to think about and try and I appreciated the suggestions just looking to create a quick passing game that doesn’t allow opposition much time on the ball. any other suggestions? thanks for the help though dude 👍🏼
  6. What sort of things would you change and what too? Trying to create a tactic that doesn’t allow the opposition time in the ball but when we are in possession plays a quick tempo passing game these tactics will be the death of me and I refuse to plug and play ones from online!
  7. Hi guys, this is what I'm Struggling with at the moment. I'ts just so inconsistent. go from beating Liverpool 3-0 and Newcastle 5-0 to getting spanked 3-1 at home by Norwich who had ten men for 60 minutes! Any suggestions would be greatly received
  8. Hi guys, Really struggling to find a tactic that works for Brighton. Tried many test tactics but somethings always off and when I counter that issue it affects another couple of things. Bossed FM 19 with them but this years a different animal. Tried 4-2-3-1 gegenpress which everyone is saying is overpowered (Which is how Brighton play now) and regardless of what defensive line I put (high or very low) always get done with ball over the top, players don’t want to tackle even with get stuck in instruction, strikers missing one on ones, not crossing when the opportunity arises, goalkeeper making ridiculous decisions and diving out the way of shots (or not diving at all) I'm not expecting Instant success and blow through everyone and win everything in a couple of seasons but just looking to have something solid to build on with youngsters. Anyone have a similar issue and worked around it? cheers guys
  9. Very interesting and greatly appreciated. Certainly food for thought
  10. Can any tactical guru help me to understand where im going wrong. Previous FM's have taken me a little bit to get used to but i'm seriously struggling with this one thanks in advance
  11. Honestly think after the update my game is cursed. Got Brighton into 4th end of first season then second season roll around played 12 won 1 lost 10! Thought I’d test out a few tactics on another save which people had a lot of success with on here and other sites just to see whats going on and end up losing 7out of 8 with Barcelona scoring 1 bloody goal! Players don’t listen to instructions, still shooting from ridiculous angles into the side netting and way too many pens. FM20 is the worst chapter for a long time in terms of consistency. Hugely disappointing anyone had any success keeping it simple? Tried a standard 4-2-3-1 with little instructions but that made us so rigid despite players having freedom to be expressive, seem to get beaten by 30 yard bullets into the top corner yet my striker (Messi) for example in the practice save is clean through on his left foot 3/4 times and the keeper dives the full length of the goal to tip it wide help please!
  12. I’m just starting a new save with the original first team. yeah go for it, always nice to see people doing good things with the Albion
  13. I’ve never used this one, ones similar as adventurous but just wondered if this one would work as well in people’s opinions
  14. Yep Brighton it is. I’ve had great success with them playing risky formations before. What would you do differently?
  15. Hi all, I’m looking to create a new tactic, something I always attempt with varying levels of succes but just wanted your opinion on the below. Not at my pc at the moment so hence the descriptions rather than photos! I’m looking at creating an 4-5-1flat back foor attacking style of tactic which keeps the ball on the floor and moves it around forward and quickly, keeping the tempo up and pressing the opposition, Sweeper keeper - A wing backs - A Ball playing CB - D Central Defender - D Half Back Box to Box Midfielder - S Mezzala - A Left Inside Forward - A Right Winger - S Poacher Attacking mentality, shorter passing, slightly higher defensive line, slightly higher line of engagement, look for overlaps, low crosses, counter press thanks for reading, any suggestions?
