  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. Thanks for the continued hard work Neil and SI. Any news on the next big update?
  9. I'm waiting to finish the season to then report on how many penalties were missed overall. I'll upload corresponding PKMs when that time comes.
  10. As I speak - been awarded another penalty which is missed again by a good technical player (Giuseppe Rossi, 16 at penalties). I just don't understand?
  11. Why are players so bad at penalties? Missed my last three, I don't expect to score penalties now. It's strange considering the high percentage of penalty goals that are scored. The odd miss or here fine but it seems like you're more likely to miss a penalty than actually score. In some throwaway save I had one game where there were 3 penalties and they were all missed?
  12. Crossing has been severely nerfed, as it was too easy in 17. But they’ve gone over cautious - no way those lucky crosses should be happening 3/4 times a game, maximum once or twice every two games imo, that seems more realistic. Wow. Reverse Michael Jackson.
  13. Anyone having crazy offsides problems? Currently in a game where it’s just reached HT and I’ve already clocked 10 offsides. That’s not normal. It happens quite frequently too.
  14. I’m curious - what tactics do you use? What team are you? What is the overall philosophy you try to go for? You’re the first person I’ve seen on here call the game “too easy”.
  15. The 4 biggest problem in the ME are: 1. Crossing is terrible. Defensively they’ve improved how they’re reacted to but now we have the problem of general crosses just not being good enough. Too many times do players cross the ball “luckily” and that just doesn’t happen in football - not if a player gets into space where they can carefully pick out a cross. 2. Counter attacking seems to be very odd - you could have a 4 vs 2 or 3 vs 1 situation that just requires a switch of play from the player on the ball to exploit that numerical advantage but it doesn’t happen. Even the most talent
  16. Funny that. In my Beta save he won the title and moved to Barcelona.
  17. Interesting. I'm currently doing a Wolves save and wanted to create a possession based side and have achieved that quite successfully - however I am using a very fluid team shape (mainly because I want to "swarm the ball" and win it back instantly - not have too much spaces, keeping it a bit more compact). After about 40 games I am averaging around 62% of possession - which is incredible, never achieved anything like it in FM. I have my team set up as a 4-2-3-1, with 3 playmakers (DLP(D), AP(S), AP(A)) in the middle and inside forwards (both on support). I have 4 players on attacking duty, 3
