  1. This thread has largely been a car crash, and despite the likes of zemaah and Crusadertstar trying to keep it productive, hasn't got much better. Since we've not seen the OP for sometime im closing it Do better
  2. Dusan Vlahovic at Fiorentina is worth a look as a longer term option, as is potentially Breel Embolo (havent seen his PPMs yet, but also covers right mid)
  3. This is the kind of quality you're trying to replicate, it's sometimes forgotten that the trident were right up there with the best in Europe. Even if the player isn't elite, you're trying to buy someone who has a strong all round game. Twice.
  4. The biggest problem modern United have is that they have neither a "Tevez" or "Rooney" up front. You're going to have to be prepared to sign two forwards capable of being creators. Haaland can be an elite all rounder, Dybala fits the bill, Depay is a great option
  5. No, Martinez is just about to finish learning killer balls, and then I'll decide on comes deeper. What I need is the killer pass that Rooney has. Martinez not far away from being that player
  6. European matches and a couple of tweaks So here are the set of results, going as well as can be expected given we're still gelling as a team Few key results: Absolutely crushed Zenit, they matched formation with formation but found themselves outnumbered in both midfield and attack, and never got into the game. If Shortire could finish it would have been closer to 10 Pick of the goals: Man Utd 5-0 Zenit - Match Highlights.webm Leicester was a really hard game, Vardy was a handful, and their midfield combined really well. The DPS role for Fe
  7. You're taking what I said out of context, I'm not saying it suits either more. I'm saying you can achieve the same things on almost any mentality, providing you follow up with the right instructions, and you account for the varying levels of risk driven by mentalities
  8. That would entirely depend on how you've set up I've said it before and I'll say it again, mentality should be viewed as nothing more than levels of risk. I don't think he's active anymore but @Cleon used to play on defensive mentality just to prove that low risk football could still mean lots of goals, Equally @Rashidi has used attacking mentalities to create very strong defensive systems
  9. Absolutely, people will make up the most convoluted theories as to why they cant win a particular game or run. Despite the fact, that every year SI point out this is, well not true, and nonsensical. You never hear people complaining when the lucky goals go their way
  10. The idea that you cant go lower than balanced to win a game is fundamentally not true The idea that you cannot score goals and achieve something on lower than balanced is also fundamentally not true I think the biggest problem here is there's such a narrow view on things
  11. It's not really a fact that defending in a low block is easier at all. One of the greatest problems with it is that mistakes so much closer to go get punished a lot more easily. Team that defend successfully in low blocks tend to have a) extremely well drilled midfielders and defenders, because you can't afford mistakes that close a) strong outlets to relieve pressure. As for FM there's been loads written on how to execute it properly. As with anything, you're going to need the right type of players
  12. You need two summer windows really. The good thing is that a decent season means you can flog almost everyone you couldn't in the first window, and because your players have relatively high wages, you can claw back so much extra cash. And lots of the player requirements are relatively easily met. The hardest is probably a Ronaldo type, buy Rashford does well here. Dybala is a other great Rooney/Tevez option too
  13. The PIs dont really change for the alternate versions, obviously you no longer need the STCL instructions The CMA in the 4-5-1 alternates between that and a BBM (much like Anderson did) I use one OI only, and that's tight marking a lone forward, that's it
