  1. I've got to say this game is the hardest version of FM I've played for years. The results are so up and down. You dominate a game, the opposition scores. You don't dominate a game, the opposition cannot score and you jag an undeserved win. You batter a team one game, the next game your team plays like it hasn't met each other. I've tried different tactics, altering tactics, different players, different lineups and the only consistency is the inconsistency. Trying to work out why something is happening and how to counter-act it is almost impossible. A tactic that works great, suddenly
  2. Any tweaks you can recommend @jonnysnipe? How do you set up with the 424 for away games and stuff. It's going okay for me but there's a lot of yellow cards... like... a lot.
  3. Hey @RDF Tactics when you say you take away get stuck in for away games where you're not predicted for easy wins away from home, does that include any individual get stuck in instructions for the wingers or fullbacks?
  4. Thanks @knap should I assign set-piece takers then? Like my MCR to take the corners or just leave it? If I leave it my LB, who is my best corner taker, appears to be taking them.
  5. @Urotsukidoji @knap Hey lads, With this tactic are the set pieces already in there (goalmachine one and defending corner routine) or do I have to set them up after loading the tactic? Encouraging start with this... will see how it pans out in the long run.
  6. @knap fair enough. If you had to choose for the latest match engine (m.e v2040), which tactic would you go with... just as a safe choice? At the moment I'm using the 4411 tea for one 103 all cups for 2040 and it's been solid but I find I quite often dominant matches but struggle to finish teams off. Still winning most of my games but I feel it should be more comfortable most of the time.
  7. Hey @knap When we're using this to pick tactics... Elite Club say 1-2in League (Lpool MC etc) Top 3-7 in League Top 3- 7 in League Good 8-11 Average 12-16 Poor 17-20 Is it based on the league predictions? If I'm a newly promoted team in a division but I'm tipped to come third, would I class myself as top in that league? Or would I use something else to determine which tactic to go with? Also what do you do when you're drawn in a cup against a higher league opponent, would you just class yourself as poor then and find the best tactic for your squad as a "p
  8. Hey Knap, Sorry to be a pain but when you say Argus 343 for away matches is that the P102 version?
  9. Hey Knap, Would you say this is a better version than your Blue Matter 433? I've been using that and it's great for top teams but up and down for sub-top. Would you say this is better? Cheers!
  10. Hey Knap, Love using this tactic in FMT18. Getting some amazing results with my Sheffield Wednesday side including Lucas Joao finishing first season in Premier League as top goalscorer with 31! Anyway, just a couple of quick queries. If you're playing against a defensive formation and the Argus is seemingly not breaking it down, should I switch to a more fluid version such as PILGRIMAGE? And when I need to SUS with Argus, is it just a case of dropping to contain/counter or are there other tweaks I should do? Thanks again. Cracking tactics. Cheers!
  11. Hey Swash, Just wondering... with this teamtalk system... which works great might I add... what do you do when it's a Champions League match? Is that counted as a cup game or a normal match? Also if there's complacency reported before a cup match do you say "Expect a win" or stick with For the Fans? Cheers, Kea
  12. Right so the latest version of this tactic is just mental... took a while for my players to adjust to it but since they've worked it out we've been nigh-on unstoppable. The highlights so far being 2-1 wins at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge where I absolutely dominated both games and a 3-1 thrashing of Sevilla away in the champions league by my second XI (I'd already topped the group). My Honduran wonderkid regen hasn't had a rating below 8 playing at right-back in this tactic ... he'll be a 20-year-old superstar in no time thanks to this. The thing I like the most about this version is the
  13. Mr Hough, Don't see why you'd need to include the corner cheat, it's not as if people can't set it up themselves. I've got a version of your wizard tactic saved on my game with and without the corner cheat. Basically if I'm cracking the s**ts with the game because of super-keepers or whatnot, out comes to corner cheat to lower my blood pressure. Doesn't always work and most of my goals are still coming through normal play but it does relieve you when you just cannot score any other way. Alternatively, if you want to include the corner cheat in your tactics who is to stop you? Just as a playe
