  1. So will there be any more future patches to fix this or is this something we have to just deal with until FM20?
  2. Well done in getting a possession tactic working for you. You're a far better player then I am. I've tried to implement some of your idea but across in all your post within my new save with Benfica however because of the reputation of the club most teams we face are playing with a defensive mentality and have absolutely zero interest in doing nothing apart from pass it about. Most of the time I will see a central defender holding onto the ball for what seems to be eternity with none of my players closing down, even though I have pressing increased and a higher LOE. And please do not get me started on crossing. For me the ME's current state I find it one of the most frustrating version I have ever played and I will call it now the next release, and probably the final version for this year will be the one most have longing for and for that is just unacceptable. Hey ho, rant over back to banging my head against a brick wall.
  3. Well I'll sit here patiently waiting for the rest of thread to be posted because it would appear what I thought I knew might not be the case.
  4. Well, this is very interesting to hear I've always thought that a retain possession type TI is a must when creating possession based tactics. So I'm assuming playmakers are a must or is this no longer the case either?
  5. I'm amazed by the sheer number of passes you are achieving in that Watford game. I've never got anything as high as that and I thought I had a little bit of an understanding of tactics following Cleon's thread last time. Now my base setting for my possession tactic is balance/positive depending on opposition, to further increase possession numbers obviously much shorter passing is a must. Now I always used to select play out of defence as my approach was one of defenders must play it short, which is along the same as what you were saying in the 2nd post. All my roles tend to be on support, which is something I picked up from Cleon's thread. The issue I tend to face is a ME one, whether it is a bug or not I'll not comment too much, but when facing teams who are playing ultra defensive and have no interest of getting out their own half this is where I struggle to achieve anything more the 55%.
  6. I'm very interested to see the combination of roles you are using. I find by using mostly support there is sometime not as much penetration I would like and we end up passing it around the box until a blocked shot occurs.
  7. This is something I'll be eagerly waiting for. The issues you are mentioning are all things I'm finding very very frustrating with the current ME.
  8. Hello, has this been resolved as my F9 is nowhere near involved I would expect an F9 should be. They are barely having more than 10 passes per game.
  9. Well that is frustrating to say the least.
  10. I have tried every available folder I'm out of ideas
  11. Hi, sorry not sure where to post this query so apologies if in the wrong place. I was wondering is it no longer possible to change the name of a newly built stadium within a save? I did a google search a found a how to, but it hasn't worked. A brief overview to what I have done: I created a lnc file named stadium with this text "STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE" 98047531 "Stadio del Venezia" "" I then placed said file in the folder of which the save was started. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2019\data\database\db\1901\lnc Restarted game, cleared cache and nothing. Any advice would be massively appreciated.

  13. Could someone please clarify a few teams instructions, in principle I kind of understand what they mean but would like a 'dummy' explanation to how it effects the ME. Pass into space - Now I know this increase through balls, but is it for all players? will I see defenders trying a Hollywood type pass over the top? Attacking width - By increasing this does it just impact the width of the formation or does it it also effect passing preferences to the wide area's as well? Work ball into box - Obviously decrease shots from distance but does it still impact on crossing as well? I'm sure there are a few TI's that may of changed through different ME but there is no where I can find that give you a 100% definitive answer. If there is please point me in the right direction.
  14. I've come to the conclusion that some games you just won't win. Teams that park the bus are my kryptonite and nothing I try works.
