  1. Yes it is possible to have success with the preset tactics. I have used the tiki taka 4141 tactic and changed nothing and have been very successful in my ultimate football manager challenge save. Throwing up some great possession stats of 70-80% some games, rarely giving up many shots against me. As long as you have the right players that fit
  2. Yes I have too. I resigned as inter boss because the real Madrid, Barcelona, many city and Bayern's jobs all came available the same time once the season ended. I applied for them all and got offered an interview with Tottenham, being an arsenal fan I couldn't being myself to even attend their interview. I got the real Madrid job in the end.
  3. So sorry for not reading all 139 pages to realise this. first time I have seen it in game so thanks for your comment
  4. I have tried using the tiki taka preset tactics after reading this thread and it produces some of the best football I have seen on fm20. I regularly have high 60 per cent possession and quite a few games 70 percent or higher. My opponents seem wise to my tactics now though so need to change it up a bit
  5. Thanks guys. I gave it a try, I got the Nigerian u23 job and it was just before the u23 African nations was about to start. It took me a while to finalise my squad as I only had 1 keeper, 3 CBS, no full backs but a wealth of attacking midfielders and strikers. In the end i had to play 3-5-2 we blitzed through our group of ivory coast, Cameroon and Morocco. 5-1,2-0 & 5-1. In the semi final we beat south africa 1-0 with a late goal from a corner. Then in the final was our toughest opponents in Egypt. We went 0-1 down after 20 mins. It took us until after half time to equalise. It stayed a tense affair the rest of the game without anything to separate us. So to extra time we went, both teams were exhausted I had more than a few players on 50-60% fitness and all my subs used up. But with about 10 minutes remaining of extra time we scored 2 goals to put the game to bed and win the u23 African cup of nations. I shortly resigned after we had finished partying. It took a few months and 4 or 5 interviews for me to finally land a job in south africa with Black Leopards who were struggling in 15th. 5 games in we have won 3, lost 2 and drew 1, we are now 11th and 9 points above the drop zone with 7 games left. I fancy our chances to finish mid table. Then I can start to clear the load of dead wood in the squad and kick on for next season.
  6. Been reading this thread all week and really enjoying it. I've decided to give up on my euro journeyman save for now and start this ultimate challenge. I don't get much time to play nowadays so may not even come close to completing this challenge but looking forward to it. Might load. South Africa, s.korea, Australia and China leagues to start off with. If I only load the top leagues have people been saying you cant get a job? Do your chances improve if you win a u23 tournament?
  7. You don't really have any creativity in midfield using those 3 roles. You have 2 destroyers with the DM and BWM and a runner with the MEZZ. I would try changing the BWM to an APs/a or RPMto get that creativity. When playing a midfield 3 i always try to have a destroyer, playmaker and a runner from deep to get in the box on the end of things. I had decent success with this in my arsenal save. I used Torreira as Dm, Guendouzi or Ozil as AP but I later sold ozil, sold Xhaka. I used willock as the mezz and got some good performances from him
  8. My Goteberg game is processing slowly but going well. Predicted to finish mid table in 1st season and we are second with about 6 games to go 1 point behind the league leaders who we play next.
  9. Nice thank you for the information. This is exactly the type of info I was looking for. I will add some of these teams to my list and make sure I keep an eye out to takeover one once my time at Goteberg is up 😎👍🏻
  10. Thank you for all of the suggestions. Some teams I will keep an eye out for on my journeyman save. I have chosen to start with IFK Goteberg. Haven't won the title in years. Finished low in the league last season. Some good youth to pick from. Should be fun to bring back the glory days and see if we can add to the 2 Europa cup wins of many moons ago.
  11. Nice. Croatia is the sort of league I would be looking at. Do any of the lower teams have an interesting history/Good youth set up? I would like to steer clear of the top teams really
  12. Thanks. I had a brief go with az in the beta. They do have an exciting young squad. I was thinking more eastern Europe some obscure league really then work my rep up to a league like Holland in the future
  13. Morning guys, I am looking for some help with ideas to start a new save. I usually just play the English league doing the dafuge challenge, I like the idea of building a small team up the leagues but this year I want to try something new. I have been trying to come up with an interesting scandinavian/eastern European journeyman save for 3 or 4 days but I just cannot decide on what team I want to start with as my knowledge of these leagues are limited. I am looking for maybe a fallen giant or clubs with an interesting history or story, something to get me hooked into wanting to take them on. I don't want to take over one of the favourites for a league that would be too easy and boring. All suggestions welcome as this would give me teams to look out for along my journey. I am really struggling to make my choice. Thanks in advance
  14. How about try swapping laca and pepe? Maybe pepe as a f9 or treq and laca as IF? Or do that and go strikerless with pepe in amc Might not work, not at my game to have a look. Think I might give it a try though
