  1. OK, a bit of context: I may have rage quit my last game, and now I'm moving into a new one (as United) with the intent of playing a different tactic to usual, and was hoping for some pointers. (No transfer budget in the first window, by the way, so no point telling me to sign Neymar). Going for a control mentality, structured shape. GK FB (Au) CD (de) CD (de) FB (au) DLP (de) BWM (Su) RPM (Su) If (Su) If (SU) AF (At) Pretty much based on what we've done recently, the midfield is likely to be Carrick as the DLP, Herrera as BWM, Pogba RPM, and I'm fairly happy with that. I wonder if making the FBs attacking might work a bit better, as the IFs are going to be vacating that wing area to cut inside quite a bit. Then again, automatic lets them fit into what the team is doing, so that might be safest.It's really the front three I'm not sure about. Getting goals has often been my biggest problem on this edition of FM. Maybe AF isn't the best option for the lone striker, but I'm not sure what would be best to replace it - maybe Complete Foward or Target Man? Switching one IF to an attack role, and making the other a winger might work better as well. Have Martial on the left as the IF, and then Mkhi/Mata on the right. My logic is that the lone striker with no IFs is going to be too isolated, but a winger adds a bit more variety, setting up either the striker or the IF. However, the United players don't really seem suited to playing as wingers for the large part. Two IFs and the striker might work, if one IFs is support and the other attack? Then I can try and have the fullbacks overlap?I've a few team/player instructions in place, but won't go into those as I'm fairly happy that I can apply them properly.

    [ocd] 1-11

    Going for a traditional 4-4-2: De Gea Rafael Subotic Evans OHCRAP Alaba Sandro Jones Bale Rooney Gotze Why is Gotze my number nine? Why don't I have a number three? Why is Alaba a right winger now? DOOMED.
  4. What have people found works best in terms of tutors for the first season (as in which players to match up)? I've tried a few things, and nothing has worked that great.
  5. By no means a priority, but I'd quite like to see a "number of hat-tricks scored" stat which could appear under the individual team stats, and also competition stats.
  6. Since FM...I want to say 11, I've operated on the following system in terms of picking my next match day squad: 1) If a player scores, then they are guaranteed a spot in the next 11. 2) If a player achieved a rating of 8.0, then they are also guaranteed a spot. 3) If a player was poor enough to achieve less than a 6.0, then they are out. The rest of the team is decided on a combination of condition, and ability. Does anybody else have similar rules? Are my numbers a bit harsh (expectations too high/6.0 isn't that awful)?
  7. I once set up a team whilst not paying attention, and accidentally put the keeper up front (instead of as first substitute), doing the whole right-clicking thing. I only noticed my mistake when I saw his name flashing on the screen after scoring! Although to be fair he had an unfair advantage over the other keepers here, given that he wasn't playing in goal.

    I'm not sure he should be allowed to continue working for SI, if this is going to be his attitude.
  10. I may have sat screaming "MAKE A RUN FOR THE BALL YOU LAZY PILE OF CRAP" at my laptop on more than one occasion, before realising I'm shouting at the ref. <_<
