  1. Anyone know what the problem is? my game literally turns off every hour or so, i play 4/5 games and then i hit continue for a fixture and suddenlY the game just turns off, no error explanation or anything, it means I'm saving after pretty much every game at the moment, it's so frustrating and i'm losing patience!
  2. Just wondering if it's a bug or something i don't understand. I've bought in two players in the conference who sign and then it tells me they need a work permit and i have to wait 120 days to apply for a work permit which has inevitably been rejected leaving me with two high earners who can't even play? is there something i'm missing or my mistake?
  3. Main gripe is when you press 'back' it doesn't take you to where you were when you are searching for players. Very frustrating if you're trying to look through 100's of players...
  4. Just a simple question really, if playing against wingers who are constantly running inside would it better to use full backs who are the other foot to the side which they play on. I.e left footed playing right back, rather than just right footed right back? Or even centre backs, if you're playing against Van Persie, it'd be better for a right footed centre back to mark him in order to be on his strong foot when making the tackle/block when Van Persie tries to use his favoured left foot. I was just wondering in FM game world, if this matters at all or anyone found they have better results by doing something similar to what's been said?
  5. Okay, thanks for the help guys. Maybe I shouldn't quite try to play like Barcelona in League 1 ...doesn't always play like I want!
  6. Can someone explain what precisely this is? Okay for example, I'm try to play a super possession based game, I want the goalkeeper only ever just playing it short. (also applies for defenders) for the most part, they do just play short, as I have their settings down to basically 3 sliders from the the very shortest but at times they try to play ridicolous balls, I don't know whether through panic and not being as good on the ball or simply because I have them on HIGH creative freedom so they do a little what they want. So for defenders and goalkeepers especially, would it be best to have them on limited creative freedom so they simply do what basically I want them too, simple and short or does a Low creative freedom also mean they will just hoof the ball out in panic rather than say collect a cross and pass it out. Or does it matter at all? Thanks.
  7. Anyone tried re-creating the 3 at the back system? I've got a great one in terms of results and possession but not quite passing stats of specific players i.e Xavi, I think it's because the midfield is too overloaded maybe. Won 12 la liga games in a row and have had at least 65% possession in all games, majority over 70%, with some reaching 80%+ ...but passing is spread out over the team, rather than Xavi making a lot more than others.
  8. I currently play 3 at the back with Barca. Alves ------Pique/Masch--------Abidal ----------------------Busquets------- ------------Xavi---------------------- --------Messi------Fabregas------Iniesta Sanchez-----------------Villa----------- I've won all 12 league games so far, I've had 70% possession in basically every game, 85% against Rayo Vallecano. I score goals, I don't concede many. The only annoying thing is Xavi, I struggle to get his passing stats to what they actually are. My passing is usually spread out, like against Rayo Vallecano, Abidal made 101, Pique made 80, Xavi made 80, Busquets 70, Iniesta 60, Messi 50, Fabregas, 60 etc... rather than Xavi 120 ... Great tactic though so far results wise.
  9. It's always been positive, usually like £500k ....right now, in league 1, just about to start 4th season and balance of £2 million. Bit of a joke now, having to have part time players in league one!
  10. Yet to post but I'm doing this challenge. I've been promoted into League 1 with FC United of Manchester yet the club still isn't professional and nor can I ask to be professional because when I hover over greyed out option, it says about lack of finance.... Also anyone sign Jamil Adam? He just left me on a free (wanted stupid wages) ....he scored 170 goals in 152 games in 3 seasons for me. He was unbelievable. But yeah, mainly the first question, why is this, anyone else suffered similar problem???
  11. No problem, I've had more possession every game for last 3 seasons but still patchy, for example against Arsenal, my CM made 135 completed passes, then next game, it was down to 61. Have just finished 6th in the Premiership, so hopefully can attract better players and with that will also come better performances and stats. Great work though.
  12. Only just found this thread. Amazingly, without even realizing, formation wise, I'm playing very similar to Krunccrni. I am Swansea though, so while some games, I can get my playmaker to complete often 80 passes, in plenty of games, sometimes it can be down to 40-50 but I think that isn't that bad considering level of quality of my team. (Although improving with signings) Never believed in just downloading someone elses tactic (which is probably why never ended up here ha!) but still can learn plenty from the other way people use certain players. First game of the season, I managed to complete around 600 passes vs Everton at home, with 78% possession stats. (2013-14, so 3rd season) but we'll see if that was just a one off due to Everton's style or I can keep dominating teams like that. Playmaker made 80 passes or something in 59 minutes before I took him off. So looks promising but we'll see. Nice work from Krunccrni though! Definitely best version of 'Barca' I've seen so far on FM.
  13. Moving into channels ... I have a right winger, run from deep often but don't want him as a winger hugging touchline, shall I put move into channels? I want the runs he makes to be inside the CB/FB area? Or am I getting this wrong?
  14. It's hard to fully replicate Barca but I'm doing (IMO) a fairly good job. Swansea City, every game in Premiership, I've had more possession and in large majority, even including United ..60%+. My deep lying playmaker makes around 60-80 passes per game, sometimes more and sometimes (Arsenal/City away, 45-50ish) against Man United, he made 93 passes out of 100 attempted which was pretty impressive. He's also only 19 so can only get better, while not too mention, more teams will possibly sit back after my 10th place finish when they play at home, so should mean get more and more on the ball. The problem is breaking teams down still, hard to get that balance between making good runs to get in behind but also making sure enough players are dropping deeper so there are always options on. A bit different to Barca in that I have both full backs bombing on and not just the one, although I guess Barca still do push on the other full back but not quite to the extent of Alves. Also, I play with a DM, CM, AM, ST ....again different. Danny Graham up front, I didn't want to try 'total football' in possibly the shape Barca play (when playing 4-3-3 as 3-4-3 is too difficult to replicate IMO)...where Messi drops in the hole, so I have got a striker in Graham that has runs from deep on 'medium' so he does both show and cause a goal threat. My attacking midfielder to be fair doesn't push on, so in that way, I do recreate the Busquets, Xavi, Iniesta feel to things, with Joe Allen, Verratti and J.Viera (not quite the same quality mind!) Trying to get both inside forwards to make runs in between full backs/centre backs. Sometimes to success, sometimes not so. Something I'm trying to work on, which hopefully will also keep allowing the wing backs to bomb on. I'm hoping once I bring in more quality and better players, it will grow as a tactic and only improve, rather than show little progression which I found on FM2011. Has anyone else been trying to keep this going?
