    Game of Thrones: The TV Show - NO BOOK TALK! *US Spoilers*

    I'm pretty sure this wouldn't happen but I'd love the Faceless Men cult to steal Arya's face and wreak some havoc. I'm not really sure what they'd do with it but I'd like a long term goal to be revealed rather than being just a bunch of folks who like collecting faces. Unfortunately that is probably all they are.

    England V Russia - Group B - ITV1 KO: 20:00

    Kane for Vardy was an obvious substitution and I can't really see why Rooney was taken off. He didn't look tired, he was controlling the game. Lallana plays nice football that does not really stretch defenders and Sterling is direct but you get the feeling there is only a slight risk of him actually producing anything. Sterling, Rashford, Sturridge and Vardy are the only players that can stretch defenders and Kane and Alli seem undroppable. Playing two strikers makes the team unbalanced in midfield if we insist on taking out a wide player in either Lallana or Sterling. In the current system we had better hope Sterling starts producing otherwise I think we will struggle to break down anyone decent, Russia weren't even decent. I think we are in a situation where we may need to take our better players out for the good of overall team functionality. It may be better to take out Alli or Kane at times to provide a different kind of attacking threat rather than forfeiting a winger and become lopsided. I still expect us to win the group but I don't imagine it will be fun to watch.

    Game 1 - France VS Romania (10/06/2016 8pm)

    Interesting ploy to play Evra right back and Sagna left back
  5. Not sure if this is something that should go in the tactics forum. When setting up set piece routines I can't find an option to keep a player on the edge of the box. This seems like a massive oversight to me as it should be possible to instruct a player to wait on the edge of the box for either a shooting opportunity or most importantly breaking down a counter attack. This is a common set up and wouldn't expect it to be overlooked, maybe I am not looking in the right place.
  6. I may be doing something wrong but as far as I can see I cannot set specific player instructions depending on the side the corner is taken from. For instance, I am Gloucester and they only have one good corner taker but he is left footed only. I also have a massive target man who I want him to aim at. From the right hand side I want him to cross inwards and place my target man on the near post. From the right hand side I want my target man at the back post as the corner is swinging outwards. I can only set the players individual positions not dependent on the side of the corner.
  7. With a 3-4-1-2 I'm struggling to defend down the wings. I've effectively tried to just let Cheryshev attack down the left and then play Mario is a defensive winger on the right. I've then left a deep lying playmaker - defend on the left of my centre midfielders. I was hoping the deep lying playmaker would do Cheryshev's defensive work and then rely on Cheryshev, Uche, Vietto and dos Santos to score my goals. Dos Santos then got injured for 3 months so I've ended up with Cani in my Trequartista role and I'm struggling to create much without throwing too many players forward.

  9. FM 2010 - 953 hours FM 2011 - 1822 hours FM 2012 - 1398 hours FM 2013 - 694 hours FM 2014 - 23 hours I actually enjoyed FM 2012 saves the most out of the above versions but I've gradually had less time to play due to other things. Unless you think I'm the busiest man in the world you can see that I didn't rate 2014 highly at all.
  10. I take that back Spain are rubbish, Australia to top the group.
  11. I'm going to stick my neck out and say Spain will probably do better with Torres than Costa.

    OTF student thread

    Didn't do a placement year as I wanted to focus on uni as I wanted to focus on getting the best degree possible and I was pretty happy to carry on to my final year without a break. That was my first interview so I got really lucky I suppose Even if you don't enjoy your placement I'm sure you'll learn a lot even if you learn you no longer want to do that job. Sorry to put a negative spin on things as I'm sure you will enjoy it a lot if its something you are interested in
