  1. Just about to start my 2nd season after winning the League and the FA cup in the first season. Went out in the CL quaters to Lyon (had a lot of suspensions ) and in the fourth round of the League Cup when Birmingham managed to beat my youth/reserves in extra time. Currengt squad is as follows GK: Adler, VDS, Amos DR: Rafael, Vrskaljo DL: Evra, Fabio DC: Vidic, Otamendi, Ferdinand DC: Subotic, Evans, Smalling MC(DLP): Eikrem, Carrick, Ananidze, Kevin, Poli MC(B2B): Fletcher, Anderson, Poli, Cleverley (change the role here depending on opponent/player) AMR: Valencia, Nani, Lucas, Cleverley AML: Nani, Ananidze, Lucas, Cleverley ST: Rooney, Berbatov, Hernandez, Macheda, Welbeck
  2. Just started a new game with Napoli to see if I could get this tactic to work for me and so far Im very happy with the results. Only played 3 competitive games but I have dominated them and won well. The highlight so far has to be a 4-0 away win at Fiorentina, especially when I hot the post 4 times and missed a couple of one-on-ones. Only problem I'm having is finding quality backup for the wide players, I have Maggio and Dossena and these two are very good in the role created for them here but there is not very many players who can do so well.
  3. This tactic seems intresting and as im a big fan of using the more unusual tactics im looking to do some adaptation of this to make it more like my style. Was wondering If you had tried this with your more central defender being used as a ball-playing CB. In your pictures from the Wigan game Keinan seems very deep for my liking. I'd maybe like to see one CB step up into midfield to give an extra passing option when you have possesion (slightly deeper and in between Mares/Vaughn in your picture for reference) This would obviously allow for better ball retention in the final third aswell as allowing Mares the chance to push wider, maybe making a run down the right to strech Wigan's defense. I expect that you would need someone technically proficient though aswell as having good positioning/pace to get back in position in your flat back 3 if/when possesion is lost. I guess it would be possible to play him as a Libero but that would rremove the 'flat' back 3 staple.
  4. I'd like to know the same really, my laptop is easily running FM10 with around 35 leagues loaded (15 years is the furthest ive got before my file was corrupted so its not fully regens) will i still be able to run similair amounts of leagues. Also a kind of related issue, In FM10 it said there was a 125000 person limit on the database, is this to do with PC spec??? If not is it still present in FM11 and if so can i remove it???
  5. I used to use 4-4-2 exscusively but i recently started a new game and wanted to try and manage my tactics alot more to suit how i like to play in rel life and on the game, currently I thinkI have got this tactic working preety well for me I think on fm '09 although thier are some things i'd like to get working better. This is the formation I play normally; (I'm Man Utd btw) Asenjo Opare Vidic Fazio Evra Veloso Camacho Ronaldo Anderson Fleck Laurito The main change I make when I play one of the other very dominant forces in my game, basically just Arsenal or Barcelona, I will swap out Camacho for Sandro and Laurito goes out for Rooney. Also Left Wing is currently in a bit of limbo as I have both Assulin and Fleck who are both very good, I normally chose Fleck though because he tends to cut in a bit more and get behind full backs o set upn chances for himself and others. Was trying to get a formation to dominate possesion which isn't really working however my formation is preety solid and opponents rarely create chances. Goalkeeper; Curently set as just basi keeper instructions, nothing special. Toying with setting his passing to short though. Full Backs; Need high Stamina, set them as reasonably attacking, cross often from byline and run with ball medium Centre Backs; Set quite defensively (the most defensive level of normal on the slider if that makes sense), short passing, ver low cretive freedom Veloso/Sandro; Quite Defensive mentality, passing slightly towards short, high creative freedom, Closing down all over the pitch. Sandro has lower creative freedom though. Camacho; Plays as a more box-to-box player, Mentallity more attacking than the other CM with more direct passing. AMC; I use this player as a link up man; my 2 AMC's Anderson and Kroos also play in CM unlike some other AMC's and this keeps them, in my experience from drifting to high up the pitch. Keep his mentality very attacking (the highest on the pitch), reasonably high creative freedom, through balls often + PPM for killer balls often, run with ball medium, forward runs often, long shots medium Wingers; Preety regular wingers tbh, Ronaldo gets more freedom than my other wingers. Im not sure why but my wingers do tend to get back preety well. Striker; Also preety regular centre forward, works better with a bigger forward but i didn't find that using him as a target man made much difference. Positives; My team although sometimes may not have, a high percentage of possesion but they limit the opposition to few attempts on goal by wining the ball back in midfield, They also use the possesion they do have well. I tend to keep alot of clean sheets and weaker teams, I really hit them hard at times (I beat Hoffenheim 8-0 in the Champions League). I score alot of goals(100+ in the league last year without corner cheat) and thier are alot of players getting these goals, had I think 9 players who had scored more than 15 goals last season and at least 6 more had more than ten. Negatives; (maybe someone could offer some advice on how to fix these) I'd like to have more possesion, Is it realistic to get 60%ish possesion (at home) without turning into Spain, having huge amounts of sideways passes and not really going anywhere. My strikers don't tend to score as many as they did when i played a 4-4-2. It may be to do with the tactic or that I tend to rotate them alot (Laurito; 24 Rooney; 21 Cardozo; 22), I would like them to get more but not sure how with out abusing corners... My goalkeepr tends to give the ball away to easily, has anyone tried having him pass short to CB/FB's all the time, does this cause more problems than it prevents with on rushing opposing forwards??
