  1. I've decided to create new "stars" for this, seeing I love this skin, but hate the default stars. This way is easier to see who's got the right potential. Download here: (hopefully Opz won't be offended and can forgive me for slightly changing this) http://www.sendspace.com/file/d9z3dy
  2. Hi everyone, I've got a few little questions, ... things I can't wrap my head around ... Basicly, I've been playin' with Ajax in FM13 ... like ... all the time. Yet I've been wanting to play a lower club (possible relegation candidate like Willem II (the Netherlands)... But here's my problem, I'm horrible at settings up a decent defensive formation. Let alone creating chances from counters ... the opponent are laughing their ***** off by my terrible attempt to stop the oppnnent from entering my box. I've bought quite a few decent free signings (5 stars) and should be able to at least keep the mid-strong opponents off my goal... but no! ... getting my bum kicked by every single team. I've been a huge fan of the Ajax style of play (433) with Zonal marking and a lot of roaming into free space... but seeing I've been a fan of one of the most attacking styles in the last 50-100 years I'm having a lot of trouble setting up a strong (boring) style... Please help me out, especially with the mentality, creative freedom and closing down/marking ... Thanks from a Dutch, desperate, all out attack manager !
  3. Yeah, thought I saw something about "bugs" in the ME aswell... hopefully it'll be fixed soon ... In the mean time I'm trying everything to fix the problem without letting go of my 433 formation, as I really dont wanna use a DMC...
  4. Well, I've been trying to get offensive fullbacks, just like the "real Ajax"... which seems to work just fine (they get a lot of assists) ... yet they're either never back fast enough, or let their man just go when defending... I see one of my central defenders close down one of the opponents wingers a lot of the times... when my fullback just stands there... On the other hand, when I ask him to mark the opponent, he just follows him, not tackling and still makes my CV attack the opponent-player ... It cant be the Teamwork, Decisions or Work-ethic of the backs, cause they're really good ... It must be my tactical error...
  5. Ive just finished my first season with AFC Ajax Amsterdam, won the national title and be a weird freak of events I've won the Champions League! But here's the problem, my defense is shockingly awful! I've signed strong, fast pased central defenders and fullbacks, yet in season 2 I get even more goals against me. Especially the fullbacks have a rating below 5.5 during half-time and mostly end up 6.5 at best if we manage to win the game. I also get a lot of comments by my assistent Johan Cruyff about our back four. He keeps saying they get skinned a lot, or whatever the english translation in FM13 is. (I play in Dutch) So my question is how can I create a more solid defense, besides the obvious tight marking (which seems wrong, cause speedy gonzales-type strikers just run by them) and they cant seem to tackle at all (I keep setting it too hard tackling otherwise they just stand there...) Please help me trying to defend the CL-title by using me brilliant defenders better!
  6. That's exactly what I do... the best thing is to ask for a sateliteclub to get first option on talented youngsters. This way you'll often get recommendations for small clubs with great facilities... then I send my youngsters there and not only will they play most matches, often they come back with hugely improved stats!
  7. Ive had this problem too, but since my striker has learned: Gets forward whenever possible + Tries to beat offside trap, he seems to be up there all the time and scores a lot more goals, even though his finishing hasnt increased.
  8. That's true... that why I've been retraining him to be an defending midfielder... I want him to create chances from the back. Especially seeing my defender are horrible passers... And this little dude is also quite strong and agile, and besides that I think Tackling is fairly good trainable... (its 9 allready)
  9. Nah, I aint using that ... thats totally cheating seeing you can never resist the up the potential a bit ... but thanks for the suggestion. I guess I'm just stuck with a huge (boring) talent. Who'll be a solid MC but never anything special.
  10. I've just heared someone telling me that his youngster improved his Flair by 10 ?? ... I'm being a pain about this seeing I got a huge youngster with max. potential... but Flair 2 ...
  11. I've actually put my best header to Attack First Post and he scores a lot, even though it used to be Second Post, it seems that the First Post option is just a affective, allthough I;m happy that its no longer a "cheat" ... seeing my best header scores just about 5-10 gls a season, which seems pretty realistic...
  12. I actually use PPM's a lot, especially to learn tricks to 'mask' their low attributes, for instance Stay on Feet for players with low tackling/strength...
  13. Darn, thats a shame, I've got a youngster with Technique 18, Creativity 15, Passing 19 and First Touch 17, but Flair is only 2 ... so its sad to think this 17 year old will never become a "Skills-Maniac" ... but simply a smart playmaker.
  14. Basicly, I havent found what I was looking for in the Search option... But, I've noticed that Flair increased on some of my players, and seeing its a Tendency I thought it wasnt trainable... guess I was wrong?? So, the question is, is Flair Trainable, and if it is, how? ... Cheers in advance!
  15. Darn, I've logged on to ask the same thing I thought that the FM11 demo DID have an extractor ready to go, too bad FM12 doesnt there goes my great skinning idea
