  1. Awesome work! Just wondering what the average height and weight is in the SPL in 2057?
  2. Video careers, should they be allowed?

    I think in terms of video careers, as long as the thread isn't constantly spammed by the owner to watch his videos, then they should be allowed. As @Jimbokav1971 said, they will soon drop out of view and I guess most viewer comments will be on YT as opposed to here. As for blogs, again I don't have much of a problem, though I guess their content can be copied and pasted here, as opposed to just an external link. i'm all for seeing new and varied career save content, so I don't think accommodating it here can be much of a bad thing?
  3. He's only gone and done it! Amazing season mate and just reward for toughing it out.
  4. Followed this for a while now without commenting, you are doing amazing. KUTGW!
  5. FM18 - Who will you manage?

    I'm not sure if it will stick but I'm considering Gremio as a main save in FM18. For whatever reason in the past, South American saves have rarely lasted more than a season for me, though that could be said of most saves I tried in FM17 too. Only a few made it past 3 or 4 seasons. A bit of a connection with Lucas and Fabio Aurelio having played there and of course there's the attraction of Luan, Everton and Lincoln too, although he's on loan in Turkey I think.
  6. My Mourinho inspired 4-2-3-1

    I've given this a whirl in season 4, funnily enough, having just take over at Barca. About 15 games in all comps so far and still unbeaten, drawing only two games, both when I instant resulted, hah. Beat Real at home 7-1 and Steaua 10-0 and I think I went 6 or 7 games at one point without conceding too. Top stuff!
  7. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. My Mourinho inspired 4-2-3-1

    Ah, phew! I'm thinking about trying this out before FM18 to see how the OIs influence the game in terms of turning over possession and counter attacking transitions.
  9. My Mourinho inspired 4-2-3-1

    Great write up once again. The OI's seem integral to how the system plays out and a lot of thought and time and effort has gone into setting them up. As someone who never bothers with them, please tell me there's a way to set them up so it doesn't have to be done each and every game? Or would the system still be close to optimum without them?
  10. I think the idea is to always have a man extra at the back and to mirror the opposition midfield, so by and large, the 3 at the back tactic against systems that play 2 up front. The 4-3-3 against systems that employ 1 central striker and an AMC and the 4-2-3-1 against systems with 1 central striker and no AMC. Just my interpretation.
  11. I do love threads like this! Great work @Ji-Sung Park I'm a little surprised that the thread hasn't had more attention, it certainly deserves it.
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. Hans Kaiser- Baldness Über Alles!

    Looking forward to this, good luck!
  15. Cool. You know how much I like a German save!
