  1. Yeah I forgot to re-tally my specialist roles. Looks like I'll be leaning towards Balanced/Rigid. 2 half specialist roles (CF and SS) with 2 playmaker roles. A Rigid philosophy is probably more in line with what I am looking for, more emphasis on players doing a certain job and playing a certain way. This isn't a save I'm taking hugely seriously so I'm willing to chop and change things.
  2. I can totally see the argument for that. I tried this out in a 3-0 away win at Everton which has been one of the first times I've been happy with an away performance (boosted however with a pair of free kicks). I have Januzaj on the left as he is definitely a playmaker type, Kagawa will play here as well. Shaqiri and Rooney would be the main choices for the SS role, Rooney for his striking ability and Shaqiri for his direct nature, then Insigne, Shaqiri and Zaha on the right as the other direct option from the AM band. Does that look and sound about right to you? I the personnel I have at F
  3. Thanks llama3. The thing with Shaqiri on the right is that he has the PPM cuts inside, so he plays more like an Inside Forward anyway. I still can't grasp why RVP (and to a lesser extent Rooney) have been so poor for me. I'll implement the changes there and I'll report back with results.
  4. Hi everyone, I've been toying about with a Manchester United save but I've been having a horrible time of getting anything resembling good football. First season was a massive struggle and eventually I lost the title to Chelsea, knocked out of the semi's of the FA Cup by Chelsea and lost the CL final vs Real Madrid. It's been a few years since I've had any sort of trouble with United so I have to go back to the drawing board and look at my tactics. Defensively we are ok, nothing special but I wouldn't mind if we were good going forward. I've spent nearly every game making some minor change bec
  5. You're right, I do have 3 playmaker roles in the side which is a possibly a touch overkill. I've toyed about with the AMR a fair bit, trying to get the behaviour I want from him. He cuts inside as a PPM so changing that whilst he is on loan isn't something I'm looking to do. I don't want my wingers to do much crossing, I leave that to my full backs as a secondary form of attack. The reason for this is that Max Clayton isn't the best in the air, albeit still has good heading. I should possibly point out here as well, I'm not intending to rely on counter attacks. I have the counter strategy to t
  6. Hello all. It’s been a while since I last posted on the Tactics forum but I do lurk pretty often, silently gathering whatever information I can to improve. However I have come across a bit of an issue, and it’s one that looking back I’ve always had. I am a bit stumped on how to get a lone striker with no AM support to score goals on a regular basis. This is probably due to my desire that I want my striker to do everything in an attacking sense, dropping deep and having options to either play the ball through to an inside forward, turning and running himself, but also as an option running beyon
  7. Just got myself back into following career threads. Your journey is the first I've come across and you've done a superb job so far. Good luck with Benfica, I'm sure you'll do well
  8. Honestly if you're team is good enough to get promoted then I'd say the majority of the time, it's good enough to scrap for survival in the division up. Of course you will need to get rid of the players who clearly aren't good enough and replace them with players more than capable at the higher level, but I try not to rip away what got me promoted in the first place.
  9. I watched up till half time then went to bed. Still felt confident that the 49ers would pull off another come back but wasn't to be.
  10. Just back from weekend in Dundalk getting destroyed at 8 Ball Pool. Anything interesting to happen over the weekend whilst I was away?
  11. I wonder how long it will be before this sort of thing ruins his career.
  12. Makes sense on his part. Why drop down a level when a top flight team is interested? I'm sure Sunderland would pay him a good bit better money than Boro too.
  13. Danny Graham to Sunderland? I could have sworn I seen talks of a deal being struck with Boro for him. £5M isn't exactly a stupid fee to pay either
