  1. I've had some success with this tactic but I'm really struggling this year. It's my first year in the Premiership and I'm getting taken to pieces every time I play a big club. I suspect some of new best players, being new signings from abroad, may be taking time to adjust, and morale isn't great due to all the defeats, but that can't explain quite how badly I'm doing. I've moved to playing with three at the back in big games away from home, which helps a bit although it really blunts the attacking prowess. Glad to hear it works well fo other people. I'll keep plugging away and see if I can work out where I'm going wrong. Thanks for the tactic Tweebier. I've had a few years of good success with it.
  2. Hurray! It's nice when things like this actually work like you want them to.
  3. I'm loving the 2016 beta so far. I've been particularly pleased by the touch interface: it will be great to play during long journeys on cramped coaches. Regarding touch, one comment I have is that interfacing with lists is not intuitive. On the squad screen, for example, it's instinctive to simply be able to swipe up/down to scroll through the players, but this doesn't work. The only alternative - a miniscule scroll bar - is not a touch-friendly solution and makes scrolling difficult. I apprecaite that you need a solution that also allows drag/drop, but this is viable - scolling is a split-second interaction while drag/drop is based on click & hold. Scrolling on drop-down boxes is also difficult, albeit not for the same reason. These are not major issues and touch is still perfectly viable, but so far are the interface issues that stand out as having potential for improvement.
  4. Haha, I've noticed that as well. I compared it to injuries while you're playing - an orange injury doesn't force you to take the player off immediately, but my instinct is that you always should. I suppose that's a bit different to your coach explicitly telling you they're OK to play. For me, orange == red.
  5. In previous versions of the game I've always found it pretty easy to pick up good goalkeepers. I've always aimed to have a main goalie and a good young understudy who plays 15ish less important games a season. After 7/8 or so seasons when the #1 goalie wants to move elsewhere or we get a ridiculous offer I sell him, the understudy is now good enough to be #1, and I pick up a new ~20 year old to carry on the cycle.
