  1. Tactic screen nothing fancy. Regarding the roles/duty what do you suggest to change? The defence is ok(see picture). I'm really not interested in result/defending, as i win almost all game, but the way i win is ugly...set pieces/long shot/defensive mistakes, tap in...most of the games are tortures, no fluidity. You think is better do go fluid/very fluid? I'm afraid i will congest space even more...
  2. First of all sorry my poor english. I still play FM2017 i invested 400h of gameply but still don't understand the game/engine. I try to make 4-2-3-1 work, i have good result(because of the players quality), but the team don't play as i want...most of our wins come from set pieces/long shot/defensive mistakes very rarely from open play(95% of open play i score from crosses)...the problem is not that i don't have chances, it is that my players miss loads of easy sitters...my last game i missed 8 one on one, 8(with world class players)!!! it must be some kind of record...and most of the time i play standard/flexibile, because with higher mentality i struggle to have chances(congestion). All AI teams defend very deep and is very hard when i miss easy chances ...i don't have problems that AI convert 50% of shot on target and i receive very few goals, my problem is with atacking side of the game(defensive is ok). If someone could look at the pkm, please...i want to understand this game... Most of the time i play with the tactic attached. Fiorentina v Juventus.pkm PS: The box to box play on the side of the w(s) to not intrefier with the IF...
  3. Nation: England/Spain Division: top or second European Competition: None Media Prediction: Bottom Half Board Expectation(s): As above Transfer Budget: Good Wage Budget: Don't mind Finances: Secure Other : Good players, with good chances in 2-3 years to win the league
  4. I didn't won Champions League, only EPL with 4 games to go...tactic was 4-1-2-2-1 with 2 inside forwards. What tactic, as i played from deep, defensive, conter, atack, very aggressive, non agressive, with space and without, middle, flanks, every style possible in this 180 min...they stay in their box no matter what...scored from 2 corners and 1 DFK, god know how they got so far as i didn't saw them in my half in 180 min...the problem is not how they scored or tactic, but how could my players miss so many chances. If i was on the field i swear i would have scored more...look at those pictures. How could that be even possible?
  5. I'm so frustrated right now that i can't put my ideas together(on top of my english beeing bad)...i really hate this game. After a dream season smashing every team in EPL and Bayern in Champions League it happened this... i really don't know how this can be possible(remind me IRL Barca-Inter with mourinho). I lost my confidence in this ME, What can I do to avoid this nightmare? I tried every thing possible in this 2 games...ultra offensive, counter, defensive, etc...they sit 180 min in their box, even after i scored in the second game(i was 1-0 and qualify). In 80 min my DMC was send off and they scored from corner(13-3 for me at corners). I don;t reload ever, but i think that 2 games where scripted...look at the pictures...my world class players couldn't score no matter how good the oportunity was, not even with empty net. I'm so angry.......... THEY scored all 3 goals from set pieces, 2 corners and a DFK....In second game i also missed a penalty. PS: I don't really need an answer, i'm just frustrated, sorry.
  6. Thanks to all of you and to Hunt3r especially. All makes sense now as Hunter explication was crystall clear. PS: rashidi1 sorry for being rude!
  7. Who'll be the main creators/providers of goals? Yaya and Pogba, with some goals from W(s) crosses. Who'll be the main scorers? Aguero and Ronaldo in that order. Through balls from again Yaya and Pogba(we know they are capable of that) to Aguero and maybe Ronaldo... How do you want to defend? This hasn't been a problem, i received 9 goals in 19 games, most of them from corners and free kicks, i think only 4 in 19 from open play... Maybe Aguero role(T) is not good for my tactic...but to change him as poacher or advance forward i don't think it will work...then again with this role he scored more then 1 goal per game the previous season...
  8. HUNT3R "Your problem isn't against teams like United who will be somewhat adventurous. It's against teams who park the bus" i really think this is the best observation on this thread. My results and what i like to see on the filed meet what you told... Tell me what to change, i'm keen to change Pogba to CM(A) until now. What else? I told above "i like to play attacking(with this squad i think is normal), high line, close down more, fast, expressive and through ball" what i want to play QPR game(their goal was Romero own goal from their corner):
  9. rashidi1 I come here for advice not to be told how awful my tactic is, i know this, that is why i'm here... Don't tell me about CCC, i readed many thread where everyone telling CCC are not something that tell much(as ME is wrong about that) when someone has many CCC, now you tell me the reverse. I really not looking at CCC number, i'm looking at what is on the field, and i tell you that my players can't score from one on one, that is all. I don't know very good how to translate my thoughts in english, i admit that, but i'm seeing very good. World class players miss enormous number of one on one and others easy chances. I think Ronaldo should score at least 1 in 3, minimum... See the above picture and tell me what you see please. 4-1 and De Gea has 8,7...what is this telling to you? ps: Last season with the same tactic Aguero was a beast in front of GK!
  10. Thanks very much for those good advices. Pogba CM(A) i thought also but never tried, was afraid to have to many players attacking the same space...2 CWB is risky, but i concede so few goals that is not really a problem. I will change Pogba role. Now the questions: Do you think is good to put Depay on W(a) to? It will not be to much? Ronaldo - Depay swapping position can be something bad? I thought that this will messed up opposition shape(especially man marking teams). Is better to have Aguero as a F9? What i really don't understand is how with the same setup last year Aguero scored 38 in the league and over 50 overall, and until know after 20 league games he has 6 goals and 15 overall...morale is superb so not an issue. HUNT3R - if you look at the QPR game you will see 23 shots on target, imagine how many were missed by Aguero and Ronaldo one on one(or other easy chances). Not in this universe they will miss so many, no matter the tactic. I'm not saying that my tactic don't have many holes, i know that but still...23 on target by those players, mind-boggling. About your questions, i like to play attacking(with this squad i think is normal), high line, close down more, fast, expressive and through ball. I think with this players should be easy, and really it is but in front of the gk they put the ball in to the woodwork(see pictures, averaging 3 per game), or shot in the gk, sometime the deflection let's one of my players with the empty net and i score, but is so frustrating to not score in the first phase and to score from deflection...what can i do about that, is like an obsession for me to put the ball into the net with only the gk to beat...don't matter who score. I would prefer Ronaldo as i pay him 20 mil per year, or Aguero with 15, but it doesn't matter to much as someone can do this... Leoforos thanks again, everything you said is logical even for a bad manager as i'm... ps: Look at De Gea(8,7 if it is hard to see) rating and you will understand what is the problem(Ronaldo hattrick was 1 penalty, 1 corner and 1 free kick)
  11. First of all sorry my bad english. Last week i bought the game(i'm the opinion that the last patch of the game making it great) and started with Manchester City ... love that team and also i wanted to get a feel for the game(as with a big team is easier to understand). I admit i'm an awful manager and the first season was i surprise for me - won absolutely everything - community shield, Premier League, FA CUP and my beloved Champions League(i won this trophy very rarely no matter the teams in previous editions). For many of you with a team like City is not something spectacular, but for me was the beast (first) year(in game) in any edition, i think was the first time i won all trophy in the same year. Everything was great and Aguero was like a game bug scored from every chance, Yaya also a beast average almost 8!!! Only problem was that a had 0 transfer money and couldn't buy players, but that was a small problem, sold Nasri and Jovetic and i had 70 million so i bought Romero, Depay and Balanta( i know not very innovative). Wanted to repeat the season(to won everything again) so i had the ideea to buy Ronaldo and Pogba splash out 150 mil on those 2 . Sold some old players, Silva, Navas, etc. Now the problem... -same tactic as previous season 4-3-2 Wide-1(don't like AMC position), only on AML is IF Ronaldo(there was Depay IF) swapping position with winger/S Depay(last season there was Navas), and MC strata Yaya-Romero-Pogba(last season was Yaya - Fernandinho/Fernando-Romero). Those 2 were the only modification from last season! Althrought the result are not bad(but worst then last year) second in premier league(7 points of United but with 4 games less because of world club championship) and i play wonderful the finishing is shocking...to see Ronaldo or Aguero miss from absolutely every position is not fun. Aguero has 4 goals in the league after half a season where last year scored 38 in 30 games! Ronaldo althrought scored some goals 90% where from penalty, corners and free kick! Last season i managed to scored often from one on one, this season i only hit the woodwork, i average 3 per game! Managed to draw home with QPR, they had no shot on goal, i had 4 woodwork and loads of CCC and HC and the score was 1-1! I'm really not interested if i losing just want to try to understand the internal mechanism of ME...know about overachieving, about teams beeing more cautious against teams that won trophy, about overlay attacking teams/mentality, parking the bus, etc...i readed about those. I tried changing so many things pulling the teams out, giving them space, wide, slow tempo to not rush, changing role, playng couter or even defensive, etc...nothing works...i still miss easy chances with Aguero and Ronaldo. For me this is game breaking, no matter the result...i'm not happy winning with corner goals, or with empty net when the oppossition GK reflect the ball, or long shots that Pogba score. I want one on one to be finished by Ronaldo&Aguero(the 2 and 3 best players on the planet)...and what is worst i know that ME is not bugged, Aguero last season was a devil in front of the GK...so i really don't understand what is happening, lost my motivation to start a game with a lower team, this put me off... Managed to beat 4-1 MU and their De Gea had a rating of 8.7...3-1 Tottenham, Loris had 7.7 etc Guess why! Loads of easy chances missed, and Ronaldo(in MU game) made a hattrick of 1 penalty, 1 corner goal and a free kick. Missed 10 one on one, but who cares about that?!? Me! I need help to understand what fundamentally i do wrong. Also sorry for the text wall. Problems - not scoring from open play, despite many chances: Formation: Ronaldo and Depay swapping position, Aguero is Traq(first season), this season he cannot score so i tried F9 also. Team instructions, i don't really have one, i tried so many things high pressing, higher tempo, possesion with low tempo, mentality atack, counter, so many things...basically i remove all the instructions bar work ball in to te box, low crosses and more expressive. I repeat, the problem is not the result, even though i'm sure i will not win the Champions League(manage to qualify very hard from group stage, last year won all the matches), and i'm not really sure that i will win Premier League, they are ok until know. Is the way of how i win, set piece goals, GK deflection, oppossition mistakes...i miss so many good chances and can't score from open play, despite beeing the only team on the field...

  14. Seems logical what you said but they still not swap position. Have you tried that and it worked?
