  1. I wonder if Decisions and other mental ratings have a bearing too? Or perhaps the opposition is playing with AMR/L so the keep distributes to a CB?
  2. Brazil's Jogo Bonito style

    I tried this system last night in a few preseason friendlies with PSG, though I'm testing it out with a view to a rebooted Dortmund save. I used a CM(s) and adjusted his PI's but I'm also now contemplating altering the double pivot to a DLP(d) and a RPM(s) (Weigl & Dahood), to see how that plays out and if it's defensively solid.
  3. Hans Kaiser- Baldness Über Alles!

    Looking forward to this, good luck!
  4. Cool. You know how much I like a German save!
  5. Is the BMG save still active mate? Is the thread likely to have further updates?
  6. @LPQR In true FM press conference style... I'm 'running our of superlatives'. Awesome as always and thank you for the time and effort to put this things together.
  7. FM17: Argentinian League

    Thanks for the reply. Yep, I started the save after the latest patch, so far so good, I've just about completed season 1.
  8. @LPQR thanks for clarifying the HB's positioning. The 'formation' seems to resemble that of a very famous VfB Stuttgart team, as I remember. Looking forward to your squad building follow up.
  9. @LPQR wonderful stuff as always mate. I often wonder how an offset HB positions himself when in the defensive phase, how the back three fan out and position themselves and if they actually become a back four. It's not something I've tried... Yet. How do you find it plays out for you? EDIT: Looking at the pics, it seems the HB shields in front of the back three as opposed to joining it.
  10. Your top 5 FM17 players

    I've started so many saves at so many clubs in so many countries but these are the guys I've enjoyed managing the most. 1. Dybala - This year's man crush, last year it was Vietto. 2. Pavon - Just Amazing as an IF(a) on the right in a couple of different saves for me. 3. Lemar - As above but on the left. Goals and assists galore. 4. Donnarumma - Rock solid keeper for the next 15-20 years. 5. Andre Silva - Goal Machine.
  11. FM17: Argentinian League

    @bestbrother and anyone else, are you guys still playing in Argentina? Is the Copa Libertadores bug sorted now? Are there any other issues that arise with a long-ish term save in Argentina?
  12. Manager picture!!

    Yes, yes, a zillion times yes, let us have the option to upload an actual photo once more. Pleeeeeaaaasssseee!
  13. Yep, I think I suggested this a little while back too. Would love to see this option in game.
  14. morale

    If fixtures allow, arrange a friendly or two against weak opposition. maybe during an international break or something.
  15. As a fan, I rarely manage LFC but I've just completed my first season, winning the league with a game to spare. I set up a 4-3-3 system based on @Ö-zil to the Arsenal!'s Universality thread, as I thought we had the ideal personnel to pull it off and it worked out pretty well. The only major signing was Donnarumma. Apart from him, it was the existing squad. Correa from Sevilla and Gabigol from Inter, were added at the end of the winter window but were only bit part players. We lost 3 times in the league. 2-1 away to Stoke in the final day dead rubber, at home to City 4-1 and away to Arsenal 6-1. A rotated side lost 3-1 to Spurs in the EFL Cup and 1-0 to Preston in the FA Cup. Apart from the thumpings against City and Arsenal (both games instant resulted), the defence was very solid. Phil was on fire with 18 league goals and 12 assists, winning the PoY, PPoY and YPoY.
