  1. You could risk that the younger players determination drop, if you mentor them with players that have lower determination than themselves.
  2. Another question popped up while i'm at work - what else to do that speculate over what to do in football manager when i get home?! If im going up against a really good team ie Bayern Munchen or Man City (that i have drawn in ChL) how would you go defensive with this? The other games I have played i turn all front 3 to defensive and made the AP into a DLP for a more holding role and then hope for counters. Other than that more direct passes and pass into space still, even tough I removed it from the normal tactic.
  3. Glad its working for you, I dont believe that my central defenders and dms are strong enough to handle that many defensive duties, only 3 players. But will save this SS and maybe try it out in the future when I develop the team more or is starting a new save.
  4. Thanks a lot for the responses. I've returned this evening after a good day of work away from the game, think i needed that after a very frustrating sunday I have ended up with this after reading the responses and started out with a few tweaks when i opened up the game: The team are creating a lot more chances. I think I have been quite unlucky conceding a few long shot goals in the last 10 minutes of the game for a draw or defeat. I have been playing with a HB on the dm position, but have changed that now to hopefully counter the fact that the opposition have been getting some good shots in from outside the box. The best par is that Havertz have been performing way better in the system, which im glad to see because its needed progress, since I started out building the tactic around him. Again thanks for the help and the inputs.
  5. I'm about to give up and just download some tactic. I made the changes and still no succes at all. Other than I started great with a draw against Dortmund and a 1-0 victory over Munchen after i reloaded from the season start. After that the results have been horenderus. In the last 5 games have i made 1 goal in open play and 1 goal from a penalty. The only game that the tactic showed potential was a 4-2 victory against Shaktar, where Bailey made 2 goals at the backpost, after crosses from the left where the defense was pulled out of position. I went for the MEZ on support option paired with an AP on support on the central midfield. I have tried making the MEZ attacking and the other MC as DLP. But none of the options really created any chances offensively. I'm honestely pretty lost and don't know where to begin to fix this tactic. The distance from my midfield to the attackers just seem to big and the players are having trouble getting the ball up field.
  6. Thanks a lot for the respons, i will give that a try. I opted away from looking for overlap on the left, since i felt that would be overdoing it. But would you recomend trying that too?
  7. I just feel like getting more and more frustrated. The only teams I've had succes with until now are the big teams like Manchester City, where it seems like every tactic work. As soon as i go outside the top teams, im really struggeling. I am therefore seeking some advice for my Bayern Leverkusen tactic. This is what i currently looks like. I have tried a few different roles, mentality etc. I just cant seem to create any real chances. My idea was to play out of defense, and let Havertz find the offensive players with his passing and vision, when they are making the runs. I have some PIs: Shoot less often on my FBs AML: Mark tighter, Close down more, sit narrower AML: Mark tighter, close down more I wanted to let my front 3 close down a bit more, but still keep the structure of the rest of the team when we are out of possesion. Hope some of you clever guys in here can help me a bit
  8. Whoever my scouts finds and I can afford to bring in.
  9. Done with 2nd season in Madrid. Won the league - 101 pts and GD on 116. Won the Cup 3-0 against Atl. Madrid in the finale. But the champions League...... Was up 3-1 away against Bayern, away, in the first leg. Then they score 2 in the last 10 minutes to make it 3-3 in Germany. At home I get Tierney sent off at 24 minutes. Manage to be leading 3-1 after 56 minutes...However they score the winning goal at the 90th minute, to make the game 3-4. So i'm out in the Quater Finale. So another year in spain it is. The team I have is so talented, that i expect to smash the league again. Just need to stop getting the red cards in the champions league, and we are good. Notable Transfers: In: Millitao Chiesa Joao Felix Everton + A few other talents for depth. Total: 283 M Out: Bale and Marcelo to Man Utd Ramos to PSG Kovacic to Man City + a few bad players. Total: 273 M Think I will be looking for a top quality striker for the next season, other than that, im really pleased with the squad and the depth of it.
  10. Okay finished my first season in Madrid, with Real Madrid. Finished 1st in the league with 103 points with a GD on 90. Champions League; Lost to Liverpool in semi finale. Lost 5-0 on Anfield, after Isco got a red card after 5 minutes. Won 3-1 at home, but that wasnt enough. Went to the cup finale, where i lost 2-1 to Valencia. Transfers: IN: Tierney, Rulli, Belotti and in January i got Pavard, and 3 talents in; Trincao, Morilla and Joveljic. OUT: Casilla, Navas and in January i sold Nacho to Man Utd. Transfers for the new Season: Sold Bale and Macelo to United. They where overpaid and injured all the time. Wanted to bring in Memphis, but he went to PSG. Working on getting Chiesa to the side. I have already made a deal with Everton 23 y/o brazilian coming from Gremio. Also brought Chakvetadze og Rodrygo. + and Italian striker Regen, Baldini from Samdoria. Will be looking to strengthen the offensive part of the field and one or two more defenders. I feel very confident about the midfield for the upcoming season.
  11. Hey I think I saw a training block called "match review" on a stream/youtube channel somewhere. However in my save in the danish league, where most matches are placed on sundays, is it not possible to review the match on monday, since it is a new week. Is there a way to solve this problem?
  12. As a dane there's a few names i'm sad that isn't present in your DB: Michael Laudrup - 167 games for Barca, and was part of the dream team. Peter Schmeichel - 292 games for Man. Utd and won the treble with them. Daniel Agger - 175 games for Liverpool, and was/is a fan favourite at the club Other than that, great work!
  13. How many highlights are you guys watching from the games, to determine where the flaws in the tactic are? And also making small changes during games. Are you watching the full game or is key highlights enough?
  14. Starting out as Manchester United, then after a few seasons, when i get the feel for the game, I'll start a game with Brøndby
  15. Thanks a lot for the answer, i have been trying to put some stats into excel too lately. Very inspirational reading, thanks.
  16. I have a question - maybe a stupid one, but then it should be easy to answer. If im a smaller club or in a smaller league than the Premier League, does the scout reports adjust to that? - Can they still get the enjoys big matches, consistent etc? Even though the players scouted is on a lower level than the ones you have been looking at.
  17. Could you pose a screenshot of your excel sheet, for inspiration? Would be nice to see how you are planning for the future.
  18. This thread is pure brilliance. Really nice write up and will be helping a lot. I have been struggeling in the last few versions of FM, and this has given me some inspiration to give it a try again.
  19. In the team instructions in the tactic screen, if you tick the box at targetman, you can chose "none" in the dropbox below. Then the tactic doesnt use any targetman, the player is just instructed to play like one, as far as I understand. Hope that made sense?
  20. The thing I start to think about, when you lose to a team like Wigan and win against PSG. I would think that Wigan in standing a bit deeper on the field comapred to PSG. Therefore you trying to pass into a space that just isn't there. Plus when you play with ball forward, you risk just giving in away with long passes to a team, who stand solid in the back. And even tighter after they got the lead. I have from time to time had some succes with "retaining possesion" + 1 or 2 more shouts depending on how the other team line up, what I see on the field. But the idea is to keep the ball, and then lure the other team a bit more forward on the field, and making them drift out of possesion making gaps for your offensive players.
  21. Well I have made a few changes on the tactic and the squad for the new season, so hopefully it wont be as bad. I had to sell a player because he was bitching about getting fined after getting 2 yellow into a red card after 25 minutes >_< I will look through the ppms and see if there is something I can do there.
  22. The one CD that I have set to stopper, that has to be expected, but then nearly all my central midfielders, and my wingbacks. In general I often get asked about my squads lack of dicipline, so it is pretty much in general that I get quite a few cards.
  23. Not really. This all have 10+ in technique, however some of them have a bit low decision rate, but does that matter, when im not hard tackling?
