  1. I'm not so hot on it as I was a few years a go but the first thing to do was to stop pretending like the game was real life. Play the game, don't play what you want the game to be. Secondly, work out what you want to achieve and how to measure it, prefferably more detailed than just 'win games'.
  2. I normally just use it to rename some of the stranger nicknames that Brazilian regens get given or so I don't have 3 or 4 players all called the same thing... What I would really like is an option to set a player's short name but leave their full name in all the normal screens.
  3. All the new roles seem to be old roles renamed but that isn't necessarily a bad thing, the old names were a little silly. DCB was a but weird because surely every CB is defensive, NCB gives a clearer idea of what it actually means. On the other hand it will be called NCB, which kind of seems like it means Nonsense Centre Back. From what we've seen I'm positive, I like that it seems much of the instructions you could have weaseled your way into with previous versions are now much more obvious and intuitive, got to see how it all interacts with the match engine first though because as is the engine just doesn't really seem to understand pressing at all.
  4. End of Season 24/25 and I don't think I have ever had a team with goalscoring so dominated from the front players, all regens apart from Pellegri ofc. Stats are Apps - Goals - Assists - Avg. Rating
  5. Just another person to say attributes >>>> everything else. I've pretty much always had problems getting full backs in FM so almost always end using converted wingers and midfielders in those positions. If they are doing what you want them to do and doing it well you can pretty much ignore the opinions of your backroom staff.
  6. I sold him end of 2nd season to Chelsea for £65m. Probably could of got more for him but he was unhappy and moaning about not playing enough. He played okay for me in the first 2 seasons, but he wasn't clinical enough for my liking, I found that both Martial and Rashford were more reliable in front of goal and suited my tactic much better. On balance I don't regret selling him, was able to cope very easily without him and he didn't play all that well for Chelsea before being sold to Monaco for £26m 3 years later.
  7. Finished my first season, squeaked the league as I started playing u23s in the last 5 games. Finished the season with a ludicrous CL final against Liverpool. Had Matic sent off in the 40th minute after Pulisic put me ahead. Went behind to 2 Coutinho headers (!). Martial put me level before rsaljko was sent off with 10 minutes to go, Clyne also sent off 2 minutes later before Martial went on a mad run from half way to win it with 3 minutes left. Insane game and a real fun way to round off the season. Martial played insane upfront all season, 32 goals and 7 assists in 29 games including 17 goals in 11 in the Champions League.
  8. The new roles all seem sort of pointless, like things that really should already be possible by adapting current roles. Tactics wise the most important thing to me is them gwtting a back three to work properly, its been a nightmare in recent versions to get it to work right.
  9. You should go ask Ubisoft to manager a football management game because this looks exactly like the kind of dross they produce. Also what you've listed as 'gamification' is actually just an attempt to force greater monetization of the game with the bare minimum of effort.
  10. If you're in July you have what, 8 weeks to get new staff in before the first international break at the end of August... Should be easily doable.
  11. My initial thoughts are that each player must be very far apart from one another. Two midfielder that hold their position, two wingers disinclined to get in the box themselves and no support from full back either. Why are your attacks breaking down? Lack of options for the player on the ball? No direct goal threat?
  12. Started a save with Lyon recently, was thinking about a French club as have had fun with a couple before in the past and them signing Memphis in real life tipped me over the edge as he is a personal favourite in FM. Seems I was right to place my trust in him as of April 1st in the 2nd season he and Lacazette have formed the basis of a deadly strike force. Memphis has 20 goals 15 assists and Lacazette has 25 goals and 6 assists. With support from Suso, Tolisso and Ferri (all double figures goals + assists) I am pretty happy with my side going forward, just got to get the defence really secure and add a bit of quality in depth and I should be able to put up a proper challenge to PSG.
  13. I actually play a sort of 3-2-3-2 with only 1 centre back. I was sort of frustrated with a previous 4-1-4-1 (had the same problem in that formation as well) that wasn't working so this evolved as sort of awhy-the-hell-not kinda thing but I have won 5 games in a row with an aggregate score of 14-3 and have played Man City, Dortmund, Liverpool and Chelsea in that run. What happens is that while the two FBs go wide (and are marked by AMR/L, the 2 DMs basically just stand next to the CB allowing all 3 to be marked by one striker. The DMs being in a relatively deep position then makes it quite difficult to consistently win 2nd balls in midfield after a long kick.
  14. Anyone got any tips for playing out from the back when the opposition play with AMr/l. I tend to find that my GK won't play short when their eis someone within about 15 yards of one of my defenders, even if I have a DM who drops back to add an extra man. With 5 players (3 defenders and 2 DMs) marked by only the front 3 of the opponent I regularly find it quite hard to build from the back and impose myself on the game.
  15. Tried with wide players set to Winger (Support) and Defensive Winger (Support), did try Defensive Winger (Defend) but that didn't work at all. Team settings were set to Fluid Counter, did also try Fluid Control.
