  1. Hi there, I have implemented a succefull possession game in the Championship with Leeds, using a fluid mentality. I have don’t like structured way to play, because I prefer generic roles above specific roles and that the players do what they want to do. This implies that the players must have good mental skills (at least in my mind). I would implement the Roam of Position when my players are better them now. Any suggestion/change to improve the tactic? Thanks
  2. Cleon, the only motive is that they don't fit in the role, so why should I put them there? The don't know how to defend... So I will convert a WM as a IF? And, one more thing, almost all don't know how to play as a RM or LM, just as a attacking.
  3. Hi there, I'm struggling with Leeds in the first Season at Premier League. I was able to get the promotion using a possession based football, but now this isn't working very well. So I want to create a new option to have against the stronger teams and the away matches. The first problem that I have is that all my Wingers are Inside Forwards, so they don’t fit the Wide Middlefield role. Is it possible to use the counter with a 4-1-2-2-1 with Inside forwards, or this is against the objective of the Counter attack because I will have more players in the front? I was thinking of something like this: GK (d) W (s) CD (d) CD (d) FB (s) DM (d) CM (s) CM (a) IF (s) IF (s) Striker? Don’t know As TI I don’t have any one in mind, so I will stick with a clear idea and them I will add things… Suggestions? Thanks all, and happy Christmas.
  4. Hi, Sander is doing just ok. Isn't a first choice yet, but I'm expecting that in the end of the season he will be. Can you share the counter tactic and TI for ideas? I'm just used to have a possession ball. In the begin of the season I have 2 draw and 2 loss, but we are playing well, but conciding in the defend...
  5. Hi all, During the first season with Leeds I was able to have a promotion, but wasn’t easy. I had just reach the top 6 in the last 3 games of the season and was able to won the playoff. Now in the Premiership I’m having some trouble and with some difficult calendar (Chelsea and Man City). I have buy some good players, but my squad isn’t yet at Premier level. I’m using a possession football that have worked very well in the Championship, it isnt’ tiki taka, beacause they can also play fast and quick to the front. Now I’m trying to stay in the Premiership, but I think that I will need an AP (AMC) and possible a better striker. Also, I don’t know if I should change my striker role… still thinking at that.
  6. Hi, What's the real importance of the Coach stats for the first season? I'm talking about the character profile (us, the people who is managing the team). What usually we should use? I normally try to use the real stuff, but the first 6 months are harder... and the players don't feel that you know what you are doing. I don’t like to be the Super Manager, but at what point should we use a more credible stats to have more realism? Thanks, P Pinto
  7. Thanks Dr. Hook. I had a wrong understand. Just train the position, and to develop the youngs I should also add a specific train (tackling for example).
  8. Hi all, I'm trying to implement a 4-2-3-1, but I'm having trouble in the defence... the CD are always in trouble with 2 mens or 3 in front of them, without the CM accomplish to provide a decent cover.... I’m using a Control 4-2-3-1 with a fluid mentality. I’m trying to implement lower tempo, short pass, work ball into box, slightly higher defensive line and asking to the players to get stuck in, so we can win the ball sooner. This is the line up: ----------------------------- GK(D): Silvestri Wingback (A): Sam Byram/Belardi CD©: Belusci/Wootton CD(B): Cooper/Bamba FB(S): Taylor/Gaston ----------------------------- CM(D) and CM(S): Mowatt/Murphy/Adeyemi and Cook/Bianchi AP(A) (as an AMC): Sloth/Labyad AMR and AML: Dallas/Erwin and Botaka/Gelson Martins ----------------------------- AF(A): Wood/Antenucci/Seager
  9. Hi all, My trainning understand tell me that a player until 25 years should be put in a specific skill train and abvoe 25 in a role train. If possible, if the player is happy with the train, we should implement the two? Or no? Thanks.
  10. Hi all, Leeds is one of my favourites teams to bring to the Premier, unfortunately I have tried several times in the pass FMs an impossible job to do and I’m used to use clubs in the second/third layer of championships to the main championship. I like the meaning of recovering a big giant. Also I normally choose a low profile as a manager (2nd lowest license and a Semi-Pro player this give some challenges in the begging, to have the confidence of the team in me) In my save I have acquire some players: - Zakaria Labyad (loan – free) – AM L/C - Gelson Martins (loan – free) – AM R/L - Gastón Silva (loan – free) – DE - Ryan Seager (loan – free) – MA/ST - Fredrik Oldrup Jensen – transfer in 01/01/2016 - Also I want to bring Harrison Reed (loan), as I have some injuries in the middlefield. I have sold Doukara by 1M €. First two games of the Pre Season and I count two lost against small teams (1-0 and 2-0 away), and arguing what I’m doing wrong, because that the starting team is good and should give more results. I’m using a Control 4-2-3-1 with a fluid mentality. I’m trying to implement lower tempo, short pass, work ball into box, slightly higher defensive line and asking to the players to get stuck in, so we can win the ball sooner. This is the line up: ----------------------------- GK(D): Silvestri Wingback (A): Sam Byram/Belardi CD©: Belusci/Wootton CD(B): Cooper/Bamba FB(S): Taylor/Gaston ----------------------------- CM(D) and CM(S): Mowatt/Murphy/Adeyemi and Cook/Bianchi AP(A) (as an AMC): Sloth/Labyad AMR and AML: Dallas/Erwin and Botaka/Gelson Martins ----------------------------- AF(A): Wood/Antenucci/Seager Also, Kalvin Philips and C Dawson are as a reserve for the team, going to loan one of them. I have Murphy and Bianchi injured 2 months. I don’t have too much money in the bank to buy real good players, so I’m trying the ones that are free/loan. Any advice guys? Really I would like to bring Leeds to the Premier!!! Cheers, P Pinto
  11. Hi, Going to analysis the team. Good to know that the board accept alot of requests. I liked the guide that you have sent, Also i have thinked in Leeds, an old favorite that i had never achieve sucess in FM series...
  12. Hi, I'm doing the same save as you, but I'm using a 4-2-3-1 with CM instead of DM and trying to use possession instead of counter . I don’t believe that Leeds have a start team to do a fast type of attack. I see some problems in your shape of playing: - Counter attack without fast players in the front; - Two DM in a Team that have best CM instead of DM, and I don’t see them feting the DM role; - The FB, I like to have just one in Attack, so they have still 3 members more in the back, instead of just 2. You don’t want to put all men’s in front and then suffer goals in counter attacks; - With a DF (S) and without Wingers/inside Fwrds you won’t have anyone in the front, so making goals will be too much complicate; - Using a structured way you should have 2 or 3 specialists roles, and you just have 1 (meeting the Very Fluid or Fluid way); I suggest to you to read the “Sticky: How to Play FM: A Twelve Step Guide“ and “Sticky: Pairs & Combinations FM2015 - UPDATED” topics, this are a good way to be introduced to the FM tactics perspective. What I purpose is that you review the design of the tactic shape and try to put some more men in the front. To counter you still need men’s in the attack and make goals, don’t focus that you will need to defend with all the team and them the players runs to the front… You will still need to have strikers and wingers to support your counter attacking system. Don’t see my comments as a destructive way, but in a way of alert to see if the team is ready for the type of play that you want to use. I will try to help you after your feedback . Regards, P Pinto
  13. Hi, I'm trying to use a 4-2-3-1 also, and I'm having some dificulty. I want to play a slow and possession football, just because I don't have fast players. My central mid are a CM (D) and a BBM (S), with a AP (S) in the front. I don't like the BWM, they don't respect the tactics in my point of view. My question is reggarding the Team Instructions, Lower Teampo and Possession fit in the 4-2-3-1? I'm thinking using a standard or control mentallity, with lower tempo, get stuck in, work the ball into box, I will use a fluid or normal mentallity. Any suggestion?
  14. mpitts , Can you share the team instructions? Great job. How is Cook proving to be a BWM? I'm also using a 4-2-3-1, with Cook as a BBM and Mowatt/Murphy as a CM D. Using a possession with slow tempo, with get stuck in (because the team have a lack of agressive, so I want to them to be more agressive) and work ball into box. Don't have sure about the pass type (short or I will keep it normal) and retain ball... I'm using a standard mentallity with a Fluid mentallity. Any suggestion?
  15. Hi, robterrace what type of tactic display are you using? 4-2-3-1 with high pressure and possession? Regards,
