  1. For real dude? You are a gentleman and a scholar.
  2. Yeah i knew that, i was actually kind of hoping to merge your genius Shrewnaldo skin with this one to be honest. Thanks though!
  3. Anyone have an easy way for an idiot like myself to get rid of number attributes on the player profiles with this skin? I would love to replace them with the colored bars, but do not have the know how.
  4. I won't be at launch. Not because of how bad 20 is though. I adore FM20. It is excellent. I will wait for the final patch of 21.
  5. Last update! I went back to FM 18 in the end. I am loving watching more of the matches, but with that tactic on 19 is was just too much nothing. With tactic no matter what minor tweaks i made we just never clicked. Went on another 9 match scoreless streak and at the point i put it down had scored 11 from 33 played. It just wasn't any fun, it just turned into my WBs slamming crosses into their WBs for 90 minutes and could not figure out how to stop that. But on a truly bright note, comprehensive highlights is amazing and makes the game so much better. Thanks again all, you are all excelle
  6. So results have picked up, I am still not great tactically but this thread has lead me to something. I am a pretty long time player of FM, started in 08 I think. I have always treated it a bit like a race, the matches themselves were simply a means to see what I was really into, the statistics and team building. I always played matches on either key highlights or commentary only. Well, holy hell playing on comprehensive highlights really does make it a different game. Now that one goal win isn't a crap result, I saw what a nightmare slog fest it was for the players and I fist pumped that
  7. So I just watched a match on Full, minimal TIs, A higher line and LOE, Shorter passing and lower tempo, then counter press and counter. Thats it. We just don't move. 90% of our possession and attack is the ball goes to either the IWB or WB and they stand there. Everyone else also stands there. After a few seconds, they either smash a long ball or get dispossessed. I have no PIs added and looking at the players PPMs i would think we would get some movement, but literally all forward and midfield players just kinda stand there. They make little 2 foot runs then go right back to where they
  8. I'll usually start with a higher press and line with a slightly higher tempo. If they are packed in deep and just holding I'll pull the line back, drop the tempo down, try and open some space between their mids and def, try and get their mids to chase mine, sort of. Rather than just throw players at them, like wave on the beach. On the other hand if we score and take a solid lead, I'll drop the line and tempo to more standard modes, basically tell the team to not run around so crazy, take it easy we are in control. If I am getting battered, I try and make sure we are stable, I do so
  9. 2 were just errors by my defense. The other two were counters, that looked to come from the fact that the ball seemed to get hung up with the IWB and WB-A just passing to each other slightly ahead of the DM strata. They were in the half space and just sat there passing back and forth until somebody took the ball off them. That was the impetus for both of other two, they won the ball drove right at my defence then simple through ball to the flank and a first time finish. Next match, played better, 4-2 win. Both conceded goals came from bad individual defending. I did sort of combine
  10. Giving this a go. First match, spanked at home by a ok Arsenal side. We created nothing, they scored 4 from 6 shots. Also dropped the pressing, will only use it as needed or as the match dictates. Thanks again!
  11. Welp, played a handful after work, got canned after 12 matches with that default system. We still created nothing, but now we conceded 4 or so a match so thats good. I reverted to an old save pre-sacking and am just going to download a few tactics. Truly thanks for the help folks.
  12. Played a couple on lunch, not really any change, except i concede now. Last match against Spurs for example, it basically played out like the past few seasons, we created nothing, but we also had issues defending the long ball, which was new, so they thrashed us 3-1. We scored from an own goal off a corner. Small sample size, so i am just gonna keep testing this and seeing where to make small adjustments. Played one more and had a really solid result. Playing Swansea (they played a super deep 4141) we actually put 5 past them. No CCCs or Even Half Chances, but hey that is nearly a quarte
  13. Thank you guys for the detailed feedback, that is excellent. I made some role changes, trying to get players moving and creating some space for each other. Lets see how it goes. Would a Carrilero do a better job of pivoting with the AM, rather than the CM-S?
  14. I kind if give up, after 5-6 midly interesting matches, we have now gone fourteen with scoring (Haven't conceded either!) Have not seen a single highlight other than VAR checks in four matches. There also has not been a single half chance or clear cut chance for either me or the AI in that span. Wackiness. Is anyone seeing any massive issues with the roles and duties? You'd think that world class players, playing with an attacking mentality would, be able to attack. Is it a case of needing to micro manage the PIs to an extent that i just need pause every 10-15 seconds and adjust them? Pl
