  1. back too back promotions now ! best scouting and coaching in the league helps, but the tactic seems perfect. Thankyou Mr Rosler
  2. my results using your tactic for the full season, occasionally switching to v1 once 2/3-0 up
  3. hey Mr Rosler always have a look for anything you post pitch size.....should I go big or small? got relegated for the first time EVER too the conference so need too bounce back. v2 all the way I think
  4. I've started a game in employed and ended up at bottom of the league Dagenham! have I set my self too big a challenge having not played regularly on any FM since 2012? watching extended highlights still infuriates me ! watching my players be simply put - awful. should I start out with a Big team too get used too certain aspects?
  5. yeah I usually start unemployed so being able too prove myself with a youth team or even as an assistant just watching reserves would be a new way too play
  6. hey guys been a while since I came in here. The last FM I played was FM14...I have spent the last 6 months actually playing FM12, mainly due too lack of free time too fully invest (12 hour shifts and now 50/50 parenting) meant I needed something a little bit easier if that'd the right word. anyway I have just downloaded FM16 - what have I missed? am I going too encounter things that do not work without explanation 12 CCC's and no goals for example? I'm looking at this create a club option...any good? I used too start un-employed and head too the top, is that now impossible? any advice or tips welcome..... thanks guys and gals.
  7. Firstly a thank you to Mr Roselr, much appreciated all the work you put in and the patience with silly questions but i actually think i'm done with FM, having an update in March that means you/we are sent back to the drawing board tactics wise is ridiculous! I seem to concede the first goal in a majority of games before my team kicks on with the tactics. The amount of crosses that drift and drop in is utterly ridiculous, pretty much every team in the league defending corners identically and the fact that morale, form and ability only seem to affect my team really makes it feel like it is me vs the game not my team vs many other teams. I have posted before regarding losses and am always given the same kind of responses, Is morale low - nope ! but the opposition's isn't great. are you watching the match engine - yes - it infuriates me! maybe your players are tired - just as much as the opposition. maybe your players aren't upto it - the opposition players scoring every CCC with finishing and composure less then 12 with poor morale aren't upto it! IRL teams loose games they dominate, loose from winning positions to last minute goals but it seems to be to an extreme level on this game.
  8. Why are all 19 other premier league teams defending corners identically???? i have a corner routine from left and from right to mix things up yet every team sets up EXACTLY the same to defend corners... anyone else noticing this ?
  9. I struggle bringing in the right players with such a tight budget, though i am regularly told the club look to make a profit of upwards of £50mill yet pay me 3k per week lol my goal is to just finish in top 7, or improve on last years points tally, then a pre season of bargain hunting again
  10. yeah i was away, this happens against the Manchester Teams, Arsenal, SPurs, Liverpool (who are in the botom 4!) and Chelsea home and away cup or league no matter there form. I will start with and stick with DOM in my next 2 lovely games
  11. What actually makes me favourites? I'm puzzled as to when i should implement what tactic. example. Arsenal Evens (Fav) - Draw 11-5 Me 11-5 - so im the under dog? So i set up with DOM, i'm 1-0 after 7min CCC, on 11 min Arsenal shockingly score a wonder goal so we're at 1-1. Half time stats were Arsenal 9 shots, 4 ot, 1 ccc 0 hc. ME 3 shots, 2ot, 2 ccc, 0 hc possesion 61% in there favour I can't just sit and wait for them to score so i switch up too FOB. 47mins goal, corner leading to scramble GOAL..... 52mins goal, corner leading to scramble GOAL..... on 63min i haven't been near there goal and they've had 6 shots 4 on target.....so i'll switch to BOC and see what happens 89min 4-1 another wonder goal...oh joy ! Full time stats Arsenal 21 shots, 11ot, 5 ccc 4 hc ME 8 shots 2 ot, 3 ccc and 1 hc Should i have stuck with DOM and hoped to hold on? after the game i get the little feedback message, I predicted a win for H'pool today, maybe a draw certainly didnt see Arsenal winning this one....:confused: many apologies for ranting, i do think the main problem is my squad being awful (and by watching the match engine very very stupid!!!) oh my next 2 games are Liverpool away and Man Utd at home
  12. Your Tonbridge save sounds like my H'pool game, though i find if i start with DOM the game goes 0-0 and if i use FOB i dominate the game but the opposition score wonder goals or total flukes....very frustrated, plus virtually none of my players fit the criteria you set out when assigning players and position, my last transfer budget was 16mill (basically re-building stadium a brick at a time ) and the 16 mill went no where !!!
  13. Is it me or does it seem that when you do seem to dominate a game the computer gets 100% luckier? the amount of crosses i've seen drift in when i've had 5 CCC's and am 1-0 up is unreal ! Or long balls from front to back bouncing perfectly for an average striker to control and smash home, it really feels like the ai/computer is saying 'you are not suupposed to be winning'
  14. I cracked a smile when i saw the names beautiful I look forward to getting to work with the new tactics (when the other half stops asking me how many hours i've spent on 'that game' over the last few weeks.
  15. thanks, the tube v2 is working well most of the time with my Hartlepool team as we are usually underdogs but i got the Holland job and i am expected to dominate teams such as San Marino and Isreal so a good attacking back up would be nice. **note - when using tube v2 against Man City and Man U my LCB and RCB seem to become brain dead when receiving the ball from GK, they just stand with ball until an opposition player comes and takes it and leads too a CCC, but this has only happened against these 2 teams, are they just so star struck at playing a big team they shut down? Add Arsenal to the above aswell, i created 3 CCC's and 3 HC's they created 1 HC and win 4-0 :confused:
