  1. Wim De Rycke looks very average at best for a player in the premier league, I can only assume if he is your best player your squad is in trouble bearing that in mind maybe Balanced is too aggressive? Maybe Cautious would be a better mentality. Also your winger and forwards are quite pacey, maybe direct passing and lower line of engagement would better to encourage balls over the top for your forwards to run onto. You want to counter every team you play against as they will be all pushed high up into your half.
  2. Well, I started the season well with the 4-4-2, but after 4 games we started struggling again, we are lacking at creating chances we have had games where we have had 60% possession but have created one half chance. Am I best off introducing another attacking role into my 4-4-2?
  3. Thanks, I made those changes we looked fairly solid, but we only created 3 half chances but despite this we ended up winning 1-0 against Sheffield Wednesday at home, after that I got sacked. Looking at the media prediction we were predicted to finish 5th in the league and we were 13 points off this with about 8 games left. So with me being sacked, iv started the season again, I will let you know how I get on. As for not doing tight marking and offside trap is this because my defenders are relatively slow?. Both have acceleration of 10 and pace of about 10. I want to play patient build up play and play the odd ball over the top for Afobe to run onto, I want to create a well-balanced tactic, that will create chances from through-balls and crosses, I don't want to be one-dimensional. What would your wide 4-1-3-2 look like? I'm also interested in what you do when you are losing 1-0 at home with 60 minutes gone by and you haven't created any good chances... what would you do to create more of a goal threat? Would you up the mentality or maybe change some of the duties from support to attack?
  4. I get what your saying, but this is a very solid squad in my opinion, this was the squad that were in the premiership so there are some good players in it I feel its just about getting it out of them.
  5. I have been a lurker mostly on this forum, during the last 2-3 versions of FM, and have tried to take what people post on the forum to my game and put it into practice but I am failing miserably. I am currently 8th in the championship with just 10 games left, I am seriously struggling to win games and make chances, on my Stoke City save. I am still on FM19, and I am reluctant to buy FM20 until I have mastered this version. Can anyone provide any advice? I currently playing a 4-4-2. My current setup is ; AFa TMs Wa BtBsu DLPd IWs FBsu BPCDde CDde WBsu GKde Starting 11 ; GK – Jack Butland DL – Josh Tymon DR – Moritz Bauer DCL – Bruno Martins Indi DCR – Ryan Shawcross MCL – Joe Allen MCR – Ryan Woods ML – James McClean MR - Thibaud Verlinden STR - Sam Vokes STL - Benik Afobe One thing I have noticed is both of my center midfielders have preferred moves as 'plays short simple passes' which i know isn't good, as I would prefer them to distribute the ball around the whole pitch. Mentality is Positive, sometimes I change it to attacking to try and get a goal back. In possession – shorter passing, play out of defence, high tempo. In transition – counter, roll it out, distribute to CBs and FBs (and counter-press against weak sides) Out of possession – standard d-line, standard LOE, use tighter marking, use offside trap Any help would be much appreciated.
  6. why are you going? Its just a forum, you can post on now and again.
  7. So how typically would you setup the team? I want to play fast expansive football. I am not a top premiership team though so please bare this in mind.
  8. Hi all, im in my 3rd season as Stoke, in the premiership. I have a player Dani Olmo, id like to build the team around him and get the best out of him. FM says his best role is AMC, as a Shadow striker although i see him more as a creator rather than a goalscorer?
  9. Great posts @Experienced Defender I have noticed all 3 parts, have the same formation, for variety variations would it be possible for to do a thread on say a flat 4-4-2 ? or 4-1-2-3-1 or both?
  10. What aboutblone striker, what would be the best role? DLF in attack? I'm finding the advanced forward gets isolated from the entire team when played as a lone striker
  11. Here is my current formation, I have changed it from a 4-2-2-2, as I want to take advantage of having 3 midfielders to control the game more, im looking for patient build up play and creating good quality chances.
  12. anyone know how to get the best out of a playmaker in the AMC slot? I have Juan MAta in my team and want to build the team around him, so i want him to be the main creator for the side.
  13. You haven't put the role of the player playing in the DM position, but i assume this is a HB.
  14. has anyone tried playing a CB instead of one of the HB's? My squad doesn't really have two players that can play as half backs
