  1. Nice career switch! Auxerre is on my shortlist for FM2022 saves so I'm curious if I can pick up a thing or two before the new game arrives
  2. "During" the match, yes. If you select your Opposition Formation as one of the panels then after roughly 25-30 minutes you will not only see your opponent's formation but also the player roles
  3. Have you tried this player interaction option where you discuss a contract renegotiation with a player? It might be a way to lower your wage budget even before January. I've never actually used it myself but Barcelona seem like the perfect opportunity to try it
  4. I too find the Analyst Report most useful. In addition to the heat map the pass map can be quite useful to identify your opponent's main playmaker. I find the heatmap very useful in addition to the Scout Report that goes into your Inbox to identify where there will be gaps in your opponent's set up. For example, you can identify if they play a defensive full back or a offensive wingback. You might identify a gap between their defensive line and midfield or you can see which of their CMs is likely to make forward runs. With information like that I then like to determine where I'll play my playmaker, on which side of my midfield I'll use a Mezzala, if I play a inverted winger on support or a winger on attack etc.
  5. Impressive, you've really established yourself as the top team in France in the last two seasons. Could you share the tactic(s) you're using these days?
  6. Congrats! What an impressive way to beat PSG! I feared that you had reached the ceiling but you broke through it in impressive fashion What's next for you and Dijon? Chase the first cup win and beat PSG's streak there?
  7. I think your settings for "Play Through The Middle" and "Narrow" could actually be hurting your chances of seeing through balls centrally, as the centre of the pitch becomes very congested with those settings. Additionally, you are pressing high and you are Man Utd, so teams will be pinned back in their own half more. This means there's less space to exploit in general. If you're keen to see more defence splitting passes then consider dropping your line of engagement and play more in transition. One thing I'd look at are the traits for your playmaker (does Fernandes have Plays Through Balls/Tries Killer Passes), as well as his PIs. For example I'd set Fernandes to 'Take More Risks' if that isn't already part of the AP-A instructions. You could also set a Team Instruction for Take More Risks. If I recall correctly then risk taking has a strong influence on the frequency of through passes.
  8. Yeah, sounds like you're in the right place. I see two options though, one for Leaderboard and another for 'Hall of Fame'. If you don't then there might be a bug or an issue with a custom skin?
  9. You might be confusing the Leaderboard with the Hall of Fame. Leaderboard has achievements of other FM gamers, while Hall of Fame has achievements from real life managers (Pep, Ferguson)
  10. I really enjoy your threads Engamohd, thanks for sharing your thoughts in such detail!
  11. As soon as Galatasaray played the ball wide PSV was pressing very aggressively with all ten outfield players on one side of the pitch. To stimulate this in game, maybe add Opposition Instructions to the opponent's wide players to Always Press. There were also one or two Galatasaray midfielders that PSV seemed to target, as soon as they received the ball the press was even more aggressive, which again is something an OI could recreate.
  12. I don't have an answer for you, but I personally do find it much more rewarding when you gain an insight from doing some analysis (like you're already doing) and to then successfully pull off a change to exploit or counter an opponent. What I'd suggest is to mostly go with your own tactics based on your team's strengths, and only tweak one or two things initially if you feel those changes would be particularly effective against an upcoming opponent. I also try to make the change early on in the week so that the team has the entire week during training sessions to prepare.
  13. Some other things go into winning headers in addition to Heading and Jumping Reach or Height. For example, attributes like Strength and Bravery, and maybe things like Positioning as well?
  14. I'm such a one club man that I don't know the answer to this. When you moved from Fribourg to Luzern, was there an option to select their contract offer but start after the season ends? That way you could've tried to lead Fribourg to promotion and then make the step up to Luzern If that's not an option then I feel it's something for SI to look at, I think it's quite common for a coach to have an agreement in place to join after the season
  15. How are you doing in the FM Hall of Fame? And how is your in-game son doing?
  16. I like your approach to training young players in multiple positions. As far as you're aware, does learning a new position use some of a player's available ability? If so that would make me think twice about versatility over attributes
  17. I think the only way the number of players could impact injuries is because your physios have to take care of more players, which means every player gets less attention, possibly resulting in injuries not being healed as fast.
  18. Is this a negative just because these are two teammates whose personalities manages to conflict; or had Daniel been mentoring Alex? It's a brilliant way of connecting the dots and find out more about one's personality, very clever sir
  19. Seems like your son's Personality changed quite a bit, from Balanced to Spineless to Low Self Belief. What do you think happened?
