  1. I have great success with a very similar tactic. The differences are that I don't use BBM but a AP-S. I find that it creates a bit less congestion on the edge of the opposition box when we attack and a bit more passing options. I regroup in transitions and I don't have a specific approach when the ball is won. I play higher defensive line with standard engagement line and offside trap on. (I think this is crucial, cos I tried different settings but it didn't work at all like wanted it to). I start all the matches with cautious mentality, and sometimes switch to balanced. Well, it is very patient, and not very attractive, but it is defensively sound, and it works. I won't brag about my achievements with the tactic but lets just say I overachieved my first 2 seasons.
  2. Sevilla + Valencia I played this in fm13 or 14 with a friend in LAN, and had ton of fun.
  3. Can I ask my wingers to swap positions now in FM19. Is it gone or am I blind? I can't find it from the match tactics screen.
  4. I'm managing Feyenoord in Dutch first tear, and I had great success with 18-21 young players in my first 4 seasons. I bought a 18 year Portuguese old striker that became a wonderkid during the spell at my team, and took just about 6 games to start fire out of all weapons. Barcelona snatched him for release clause of 22.5 mil after just one season, and I was left with one 25 year old striker that is just not performing like he used to and two 19 year old strikers. Now these 2 guys have attributes, good off the ball, great composure (especially for young players), great physicals 16+ finishing etc. but just act like nervous kids on the pitch, loosing balls, missing sitters, hitting balls into goalkeeper 3 times in the row from 5 yards out... They both had over 10 games each as starters and more as subs in the fist 20ish games of the season but they keep getting 6.3 to 6.9 marks and overall have not enough impact in the games. They are sitting with 1 goal and 1 assist each. I wanted to relay on them because I couldn't get any better players with my wage budget and reputation, coaches give them 3 stars with 4-5 star and 3,5-4.5 potential. Squad atmosphere is good we are challenging for the title thanks to very good players in other positions that actually score and help us edge out games. I was wondering when will I be able to relay on the new youngsters. I'm confused now because previously my young full backs, defenders, and midfielders, wingers and mentioned wonderkid striker used to perform good, somewhat inconsistent but better than those 2 new strikers, and were able to win their first team spot within first season. Will I need to buy someone even tho he has lesser attributes just for experience and consistency and send those guys on loan? I play a lone striker system, a 4-1-2-2-1 wide with one winger one IF and AF.

  6. Images of the original post are not loading, is there a way to fix that? I tried different browsers, and image reloader extension without success.
  7. Actually guide to football manager explicitly says physios rolls are reducing chance of injury occurring, reducing length of injury and reducing recovery after injury is gone. Besides that they do also estimate the length of the injury.
  8. For people complaining about injuries I will suggest something that made a difference and worked for me. It is a common misconception that physios in the team just predict the length of recovery from injury. I followed this misconception and fired 5 of 8 of all physios from my team to save money and staff space. Got a early season injury galore leading to my team missing 6 first team players and one important substitute in 7th or 8th round of the championship. Than I read that physios do more than predict injuries - even tho people couldn't explain what exactly they said that more physios makes them have less workload and can attend more attention to every player needing it. Next time I hired one to go to maximum 9 and felt a massive difference in injury proness without changing anything about, training, pre-season load or anything like that. Continued hireing maximum number of physios in my subsequent saves and never had the injury galore anymore.

    Inside forwards popularity

    I'm sorry for getting the Robben thing wrong. My experience that produced frustration is all with younger players that have no PPMs though... I am not sure I am understood. The thing that I am complaining about is that you get so many players with right attributes to play winger who are right footed but natural in AML position and just competent or so in AMR position, and they keep playing bad like wingers because the position is awkward... And they are hard to retrain to AMR position even tho they are already versatile (they can play ML AMC ST) and young (19-23). And after all the frustration when you give up and try to play them as winger in their natural position even tho they have wrong foot for it they just play as inside forwards or in between or they play bad...
  10. I might be wrong and I could be disconnected with modern football tendencies but I felt I had to say something about this. There is just too many inside forwards in the game. And most of them are pretty hard to be made to work. Inside forward tendencies to sit pretty narrow in the shoulder of defenders and cut inside from wide positions creating congestion in the center of opposition third just invites any of the defenders to just disposes them or make all their passing options (but backwards) impossible. If you can understand me, when you have wingers they tend to stretch back 4 of the opposition wide and get themselves in 1v1 situations or draw other defenders out of position and create surplus of other attacking players. Inside forwards draw opposition defense even closer to each other, more narrow and tight making them spoiled for choice of who is going to tackle. OK I understand exceptional players like Messi and Ronaldo are inside forwards making the role so popular but those are exceptional players. Heaving someone with huge dribbling capabilities, great shot and incredible creativity, vision, flair and passing ability is obviously great for your team. Ribery and Roben are examples of wingers that could play like inside forwards and had both feet pretty decent but in this game this doesn't work because IF don't wanna fulfill winger role even when you assign it to them (if on wrong side to their preferred foot) or they simply suck at it (right side for their foot but awkward position). And popularity if the role is so out of proportion and this game produces so many useless inside forwards. Why? Because: -they refuse to dribble wide -they refuse to run with the ball wide even when they have space and pace -they just don't produce enough creative passes -they loose ball too often -they get greedy and shoot wide too much -even when they get in scoring opportunities their finishing lets them down. Only good thing they produce is that they open space for wing backs to have a go and cross but the defensive line is usually already so dense especially if you have 2 inside forwards that there is odd to be some defender that is gonna clear the cross in front of your attackers. And there are just not enough defensively sound tactics that are gonna push wing backs forward so often. Why do so many right footed players have natural AML position (and vice-versa) when they have obvious winger characteristics (pace, crossing)? Why do those players have so hard time playing like wingers on the right side if right footed and vice-versa despite having all the right attributes? Why are they so hard to retrain to the position even if they are young and versatile? I'm thinking about moving this to fm16 feedback thread too but I hope it is gonna get noticed more here.
  11. Match engine this year feels much better. Changes to training are disappointing though! Inability to change individual training workload independent of the team workload is a big minus. Also who ever thought of the idea that you can't cancel PPM training!?!? Central midfield you can't train differently for attack or defense roles. Also MC role doesn't train tackling and marking anymore!?!? Transfer prices are ok, i don't see why are people complaining. But no single scouting or offer remains private. As soon as I get a scout report card on someone press leaks it!?!? Every single above average player that seemed good for the price I have put on the shortlist. All of them and I talk about 25 players got signed by a bigger club next transfer window despite those clubs heaven't really been needing them. All the good options just disappear!?!? It didn't happen before! I could track player for 3 years on my shortlist and sign him when the circumstances are right. But now they snatch them away from me first! I am forced to go for too expensive deals... And than I go for expensive deal, and look the miracle bigger club from my league makes an offer too... What are budgets for if you can't use them? If this is intended Than there should be mechanism to notify me if a bit smaller clubs are eyeing a good deal, so I can also snatch me some!
  12. Am I missing something blatantly obvious or there is no way to set individual training workload in fm16?
  13. Jumping reach for keepers just affects situations outside their box where they are not allowed to use hands. It comes into play if goalkeeper rushes out and is forced to used head to deflect the ball or something similar. I red this in a guide on another SI supported affiliate site.
  14. I watch extended, and just sometimes comprehensive when I really feel it is needed. But I heard a very good technique that is not too much time consuming. One guy who is really good with tactics always watches first 15 min. of the game in full to see how tactics work and if adjustment needs to be made and the rest of the game he just watches key. I just plan to try it out tomorrow already.
  15. I'm 5th season in my unemployed save. I have started as a International footballer with no coaching licences. Now I managed to promote a team into Serie A and overachieve next season and I hope I will get a job in a top club soon. But I am worried about media handling. That's my weakest attribute on about 30%. I always send AM to conferences, but I answer most of other questions that appear from the media. I have noticed that in all my job interviews they mentioned my media handling is low. Will this affect my chances of getting a world-class job? What do you guys think in general how important media handling is for your manager attributes and for relationship with the board?
