  1. Good switch. Interesting to see, how quickly dominating the league will become boring Titov looks really good for this level.
  2. I have played 12 league games and 2 cup games with these tactics. Only changes are, that the DM D is now a HB and I have experimented with turning the MEZ into a BBM. Not a big enough sample size yet. I have so far lost 1 game, and I'm overperforming in terms of points and the standings. I am drawing far too many games for my liking though, but this is to be expected. Most of my chances are one on ones, and that is not good in this ME.
  3. Counter and high DL and high pressing does not really match. To counter you must lure your opponents forward, and by pressing them a lot high up the field you are no+t doing that
  4. My test save gave me mixed, but mainly positive, results. As mentioned, the formation with a TM worked well against big teams, but I struggled against weaker teams. So I tried making a second tactic for matches where I am the favourite. This has lead me to: This is the tactic for when I am the underdog. This is the tactic for when I am favourite. This is still not complete, and I might opt for an IW S on the left sometimes. The CM pairing most likely will also be MEZ A/S and DLP S at times. Which TI's would be advisable for the second tactic? I am thinking to maybe remove the early crosses, but I am worried that that might be against the idea of counter attacking.
  5. Played 4 more matches. This, logically, works much better when I am the underdog. But, I struggle way more than expected when facing poorer sides. Perhaps I need a second tactic for when I am the favourite. I am going to try some changes: ST - TM S --> PF A AMR - W S --> W A AML - IF A --> IF/IW S DL - WB S --> FB A So the role setup is now almost identical to my very first start, but with another approach to build up.
  6. First of all, congratulations on a well deserved mod title. Second, I have played three matches with the counter tactic I posted above. Only change is, that the DL is now a WB S. In my first match against a weaker team, I also changed the MEZ to A. First match was against a team predicted to finish 12/14. We won 2-1 away. Their goal was from a free kick after 89 minutes and was their only shot on target. I created a ton of chances, most of them form inside the box. It was a very solid defensive match. In my two previous saves this match finished 0-0. Second game against the best team in the league predicted to finish 1/14. Drew them 1-1 away from home. I didn't give up more than 1 or 2 really good chances, and their goal came from a counter after a corner. I have lost this match 4-1 before, so a huge improvement. Third match at home against the team predicted 2/14. Won 1-0. Once again it was solid at the back. We created a decent amount of chances. Usually I lose this match. What I think could improve: -My lone TM is often alone when we counter. This is most likely natural though. I don't have much experience with this type of football. -The rating of my TM and IF seem to be dependent on goals. If they don't score, they have a rating of 6.0-6.4 -My W is almost invisible and plays poorly -My DR could perform better I regret tat I have only started a test save, and not set it up properly
  7. I want to believe it was earlier than 18, but I honestly can't remember. I have actually thought about starting a save with them before I saw your thread, so this might spur me on further.
  8. Ah, Hereford. My FM love. The closest I ever came to completing Dafuge's Challenge, and the best FM save I ever had was my 12 season stint with Hereford on FMsomething. Took them to the PL. The joy I felt when we finally managed to go up was immense.
  9. Ah, okay. I wrote this at the top of my post: "I tried this setup as well, but the damage was done on team morale and board patience, so I got the boot in the end. I started rethinking, and looking at the players, and decided to try to start over, and build something not based on possesion, but more on a solid defensive approach and some counter-ish football."
  10. I know that I should make the DL a support and the DR an attack to create balance

I have come up with the following to start with:
  12. Thank you so much for your help and advice. I started off with exactly the top one, and it didn't work that well. Maybe I just need to stick with it. Would it be an idea to apply a split block? The bottom one looks interesting, so I will look forward to trying that. I am not married to the AP but one of my best players is a playmaker, so I think I would like either an AP or DLP. I think, he has the stats for MEZ as well, but I am not entirely sure.
  13. Ideally, I would like a possesion style, because that is what they practice in real life, so I started of with that. Looking at the stats however, this is not mirrored in FM, so that will not work that well. So maybe, a defensively solid approach where we move the ball quickly forward will suit the team better.
  14. We are a biggish team, if that is what you are asking. We are predicted 5/14. We don't have the best passers, so I removed the shorter passing instruction, as you can see in the second screen shot.
