  1. England/Scotland could be: Frank Ferguson, Fred Fleming, France: Francois Fauberge, Florent Faivre Spain: Fernando Fuentes, Franco Fierro, Francisco Fuerte, Germany: Frank Fassbender, Sweden: Fredrik Forsberg, Filip Fredrikson,
  2. Actually, at first I was pretty disappointed with the absence of big, new features. But then, I came to think, that it actually might be a good thing. Maybe this means, that they have put their energy into optimizing existing features and the match engine, so we might actually get a game worth playing this year. I was vastly disappointed with FM19, but I am cautiously optimistic about FM20 for those exact reasons.
  3. Being a dane, I can tell a bit about the Danish leagues. The league system is kind of confusing at first, but you'll get used to it. Clubwise, it is kind of interesting. FC Copenhagen and FC Midtjylland are the two big players right now. Behind them, it's pretty open. Traditionally, Brøndby has been the main contender of FCK, but they have been mismanaged for some years now. FC Nordsjælland has a great academy, with a feeder club in Right to Dream academy in Ghana. They have, IIRC, the youngest starting 11 of any club in European top flight football. My club, AGF, was a powerhouse many years ago, but have been an elevator team for some years now. In general, a lot of interesting clubs. If you drop down a bit, you find AB in the third tier. They have been champions 10 times, but not once since 1967. It is the former official club of the University of Copenhagen, and Danish physicist Niels Bohr played in goal for them. Frem is the traditional workers club of Copenhagen, and they have the slogan "Real Copenhagen". They have been through bankruptcies, but they deserve better than what they are currently enduring. In the second tier, you find FC Roskilde. Roskilde is the 10th largest town in Denmark, but have never really had a good football team.
  4. FM players: well, an improved match engine would be nice... Nobody: Absolutely nobody: SI Games: SOCIAL MEDIA!!11! AND YOU PLAYERS CAN BE NON-BINARY!!
  5. No. I put it away because the numbers of goals scored in all leagues are low. These were just my examples posted, as they were finished before the other leagues in my test save. I think others would agree that 1/4 of all goals is quite a lot. It was the same in the league I was playing in, but I didn't use that as an example because I was intervening with the results. As it was also the same in the other leagues I had loaded on that save. Other people have posted examples form the English leagues as well, where the problem is the same. A lot of teams average much fewer goals than they would in real life. I am not saying that FM should/will ever hit the exact real life spot, but 25% is too big of a difference.
  6. All in all I really like FM19. The features are good, there are very few bugs and there is nice flow to the game. In many ways it is the best FM ever in my opinion. Still, I have gone back to FM18. In my experience, there are two major things wrong with this game, and that makes it not enjoyable for me to play. 1) Even after adjusting it with 19.3 the strikers still act in a weird way, making them unreliable. 2) (and this is what made me uninstall) the low number of goals across the board. From my, albeit limited, sample size, I have seen that nearly 25% less goals are scored when compared to reality. To some, it may not sound like much, but it breaks the games realism to me at least. I posted the following in the bugs forum, and I have produced pretty similar numbers since then. I am playing in Denmark, so had no influence on these results. Real life: Sweden In 2018 there was an average 2,74 goals scored pr. match. In 52% of all matches more than 2,5 goals are scored. 5/16 teams averaged 1 goal or less scored pr. match. 7/16 teams averaged more than 1,5 goals scored pr. match. Iceland In 2018 there was an average of 2,95 goals scored pr. match. In 56% of all matches more than 2,5 goals are scored. 2/12 teams averaged 1 goal or less scored pr. match. 6/12 teams averaged more than 1,5 goals scored pr. match. In FM the story is different. Sweden In the simulated 2018 league there was an average of 2,02 goals scored pr. match. In 33,75% of all matches more than 2,5 goals are scored. 9/16 teams averaged 1 goal or less scored pr. match. 0/16 teams averaged more than 1,5 goals scored pr. match. Iceland In the simulated 2018 league there was an average of 2,21 goals scored pr. match. In 38% of all matches more than 2,5 goals are scored. 5/12 teams averaged 1 goal or less scored pr. match. 2/12 teams averaged more than 1,5 goals scored pr. match. This is a major drop off in goals and that leads to unrealistic league tables, and way too many low scoring matches. I am seriously baffled, that this made it through testing, and that it is a direct result of changes made to 19.3.
  7. I managed to get through at least 11 games. No money was awarded to me as well.
  8. Sorry, I missed that part
  9. This also applies to loan players, who you then re-loan or sign permanently

I know this is only one simulation, but I could do it over and over, and the results would be somewhat the same. Those numbers suggest a huge drop compared to real life.
  11. I have taken your advice on board @Experienced Defender and have come up with this. It plays okay so far, but there are still some pieces missing I feel. My striker is kind of invisible, but that could actually be okay in the role he plays in this system I guess. My MC is just a standard MC S for now, because I am not sure how I should set him up. I considered the BBM, but I'm afraid he will be out of position defensively too much.
  12. Thanks for the effort, but that is not the updated squad. Most of it should still be true though, so will look at those formations.
  13. I just thought that WP and Treq would be overkill, and basically doing the same thing. Especially if I also add a DLP to the mix. He's got the stats for BBM. He's a good fit for PF, so will change him to that. Yeah, I meant carrilero. I think I will put a DLP D instead. I appreciate the feedback.
  14. Hello. I want to manage AGF in Denmark. They are my favourite team, and I want them to do well. The squad is kind of weirdly put together, so I have spent a couple of hours trying to conjure up a system and formation to fit the best players. I am really not great with tactics though, so if someone would take a look at my starting point, and give me some advice to work on, it would be greatly appreciated. Since they don't have a good DM, I am thinking that I might avoid that, which leads me to starting at a 4411. They are not a very good team (middle of the pack or thereabouts) so I would like to sit back a bit. Perhaps I should go for a counter based system. The club has a philosophy of playing direct football, and I don't have the best passers at my disposal, so I will roll with that. Which leads me to this: The thoughts behind it: GK - nothing noteworthy. DR - Our starter here is good defensively, but not amazing forward, so I want to keep him at the back to be more of a pure defender. DC - No real thoughts behind this, other than a standard central defense. DL - He is a WB. He is a good defender, but can put in some really good crosses. MR - Right now a winger, as I want some crosses from the right as well. Was also considering IW (S) and then changing the TM to either DLF or PF MCR - We have a really limited arsenal at CM, but we have a natural born BBM, so I want to utilize him like that. MCL - Here I did not know what to do. I put a MEZ to help out with the space left behind my the ML. ML - WP. Our most creative player is right footed and natural on the left, so I want to use his skills by having him as WP. Considering IW. AMC - This role is really work in progress. I will not use a Wide Playmaker and a Treq I think. So the combo would be WP/?? or likely IW/Treq ST - Natural TM, but also decent as PF. I want him to be a link up more than a main goal scorer. I know that I need to test it, but I wanted to ask you guys, who know more about tactics creation, to find any glaring holes or things that won't work. General advice is appreciated as well.
