  1. I would say proabbly an AP(a) on the wings for Grealish. Make sure he has runners around him (maybe a BBM and a WB overlapping for example.
  2. Why does every team play 4231 on this game when this formation is nearly not as successful in real life? The traditional number 10 role is dying big time in real life, yet in FM it's essentially glorified with every top team utilising the 4231. Something seems very off.
  3. What role has Pep given Sterling for him to make less decisions or thinking? This is rubbish and really undermines Sterling’s ability as a player.
  4. Actually, I’ve posted several times in this topic offering constructive feedback, plus also took part in the BETA and reported bugs in the forum. That’s my main point - SI are a small team. We should help them make the game better, they’ve provided us a platform for this.
  5. You can say that but you’re not contributing anything to making it better, so your comment is pretty much useless.
  6. You can just use space bar instead of keeping your mouse pointed to pause a game.
  7. The amount of crosses are fine, it’s accuracy. But there’s a deeper problem - defenders don’t defend (good) crosses too well on FM - so if they increased the accuracy - there would be an anomaly of cross goals.
  8. Lots of food for thought here - thanks guys for the input and feedback. So I was Birmingham manager, leading the table and suddenly we hear that West Brom have just sacked Pulis as they were languishing in 18th. Their board thought they’d be cheeky by trying to steal a rival’s manager in me - and I fell for it. It’s January so I have space to somewhat rebuild the squad. I’ve had two days to prepare my team for a game against Puel’s Leicester - and made some changes. I have now got this setup going on: Standard/Flexible. SK(D) FB(A) CB(D) BPD(D) WB(S) BWM(D)
  9. I only have shorter passing and WBIB on. Not retain possession. I toggle WBIB off and on depending on the game. I understand that I’m getting my players into the 10 area but that’s by design. My problem is that sometimes players will have clear options ahead but will often choose to shoot instead. I want to play short possession football with players having plenty of options around them - which they do - the tactic is kind of successful, but it doesn’t seem to be as effective as first. Long shots are a lot more frequent. I was just hoping someone who’s had this problem with the 4-3-3 coul
  10. Hi. I’ve created a quite successful 4-3-3 but after a while, now my team is fully used to the tactic; long shots seems to have gone up a lot in our game. I can’t quite figure out what it is without losing the complete essence of the tactic.
