  1. Hello all, When starting a career, I usually pick a club from a small country (footballwise) and then the lowest tier. My current career started in Sweden with Hogaborgs. Results are very good and I enjoy my time. But...my finances just go downhill. I have a salarybudget of 18k per month, but I have a loss around 30-50k per month. Bonus structure is low. I could figure out the loss, but what I am curious about; do you have some suggestions about how to manage finances in the lowesy leagues of Sweden? Any notes: A transfer of a very good player, usually gives me a 10k max of income. Talents are ok, but don't get much from that on the short term. League attendence is around 75 people per match.
  2. Well, I get rather many ccc against me, through passes which catches my defence offguard. My matchatatistics are always pretty balanced (shots and posession). I get alot of draws. On CCC I'm amongst the poorer teams. You say to have an holding midfielder. Wouls that be a CM on the defence role/bwm on defence? And what would you advice for a pair pf strikers. I always assumed that a targerman and poacher fitted well...
  3. Hello all, I started playing FM2016 and started with a club at the 4th level in Sweden (Hogaborg). I developed my own tactics and I must say; things are going reasonable. I'm 5th now while the pre-season prediction placed me 10th out of 14. I'm playing 4-4-2, just to keep things basic and balanced. In all my matches I play reasonable and most of the matches the statistics are pretty much balanced. Here is an overview of my tactic including team instructions. Can you give me advice on thing that you think might help improving it a bit? My team has the highest % of headers completed in the league (by far) and best at hitting target. On the rest I'm in the subtop. Except on scoring goals (8th) and % crosses completen (7th). On defence (goals conceded and clean sheets) I am in subtop (2nd and 4th). Because of the poor players in LL, I stick to a structured teamshape and keep focus on discipline (maybe this causes less offensive power?). I get a reasonable high CC against me, therefor I try to play with me defence a little deeper. As said: do you guys see any strange things in my tactics? In the meantime, I'll keep experimenting too
  4. Hello all, I started this game with Hogaborgs BK, small Swedish club. I have a small question; In my tactic I use a right full back on support duty. The right full back I have, is a 3 star as a full back. BUT, he is more fond of the defending role then he is of a support role. Placing him as full back on defensive gives him 3 stars, full back on support 2 stars. What is the wisest thing to do? 1) Let him stay on the support role, since it is part of my tactic, 2) Give him his favourite role, since it suits him better. With kind regards, Werner
  5. Hello all, I could use some advice. I currently play at Debrecen in the Hungarian top division. De results are pretty good, my tactics seem to work great, but there is just 1 tactic I can not seem to hande: 3-4-3. I tried 4-4-2 - diamond, 4-1-2-2-1, but with those tactics I can not seem to handle them. The last match was just terrible. After I made the 3-1 in de 46th minute, things went terrible. Lost 3-7... So any general advice how to play them? My first thoughts: use AML and AMR and to cover their midfield, maybe some backs who play into midfield?
  6. Hello all, First of all, I must say thing go pretty well with my team. I'm in the 5th season and I got SJ Ver from the 3rd level to the highest level. Even qualified for the EL (runner up in the Portugese Cup). The results of my team are generally good, but I do have trouble dominating easy matches, and when matches do go well (2-0 e.g.) I pretty much get into trouble all the time (2-1, 2-2, 2-3), no matter what I do: drop deep, play defensive, no pressure on ball, etc. But like I said; the tactics have their good things, posession in general is good, the matches are nice to watch (good passing), the results are reasonable/good. I always perform above expecations. Therefor I want to shae these tactics for everyone to try, BUT I also would like to have some clean eyes on my tactics, giving me some advice about what doesn't seem right. I use three tactics, using them depending on how my opponent plays: 4-1-2-1-2 I usually use this one when my opponent plays 4-2-3-1. But in general this one seems to work best for me against other tactics too. 4-1-2-2-1 My tactic when I want to outflank my opponent. Works well against teams who play 4-1-2-1-2. In general seems to work less... 4-2-3-1 This is the tactic I use against 4-1-2-2-1. Though this is my favourite, because of the positioning, but it makes my defence vunurable. So if you want to try, go ahead. But if you have some good advice about how to improve it, please let me know! My main concerns: - I can not control the match, not if I defend, drop deep, etc. The opponent always creates some good chances (lots of balls behind the defence or poor covering of my backs) - Though I sometimes have lots of posession, I can not transform that into chances. That might have to do with my short passing, control, patient instructions?
  7. Good remark Vladis: the CCC I get against usually are balls dropped behind my defensive line and the striker running from the last man.
  8. Hello all, I could use a bit of your help. I'm using a 4-1-2-2-1 tactic, playing control and fluid. I'm very satisfied and my performance in general is above expectations, but still I'm not very satisfied, mostly because of one reason: I concede quite alot of CCC and goals. It feels I need that last extra thing to tip the balance in favour of my team to really dominate matches. Sometimes I win from the top teams and then get hammered by smaller teams. I added a screeny of my tactic. http://postimg.org/image/vxaf6ekwf/ Some match stats I have alot: 3-3 against an equal team - Match stats: http://postimg.org/image/51483b68f/ - Positions: http://postimg.org/image/9ssg4ccah/ I go for control, push up higher and hassle. My feeling says I should not push up higher and/or hassle. Any words of advice? Regards, Oobro
  9. What do you mean by the two defensive midfielders breaking up play?
  10. Analyzing my matches, the thing that worries me the most is the fact that my opponent easily drops the ball behind my defence, hence creating a 1 on 1 very easily. I could drop the "push higher up" and "hassle", but that give my the idea the gaps on the midfield will only grow larger...
  11. Hello all, I could use a bit of help with my tactic. It isn't going very bad, but it's not going great either. I have pretty high posession, but I don't seem to be able to get a clear difference in chances. I'm a medior in my league. I basically use 2 different formations of which 4-2-3-1 is my favourite (I also have 4-5-1 (1 DMC, 2MC, AML/AMR/SC)). The strange thing is it worked great before, but I didnt play for a while and now it's going much harder to get good results. In the link you can see the tactic and instructions. My 4-5-1 looks like this. I chose for pushing up high and hassle to close the gap on the midfield a bit more. It makes me a bit more vunurable, so I could try to swith one of both off. The tempo is unchanged. I play on posession, but I don't want to lower it which would give the opponent time to get into posession. So maybe turn it to high tempo? And how would you adjust the 4-2-3-1 when you play much stronger teams? With kind regards, Werner
  12. Very nice. The basis set up gave me great successes in FM2011 (with a tiny team in Sweden winning CL). Couldnt get it to work in FM2014 yet.
