  1. I’ve just finished my first season, won the league over Arsenal by 4pts, and CL, beat At. Madrid on penalties in the final. Now trying to build my squad for the next season. Need a good option at AML and maybe something more creative in midfield. Was thinking about getting Grealish since he can play both AML and MC and he’s english. But now Chelsea made an offer for sergej milinković-savić and I don’t want him to go there (obviously) so now I’m thinking I’ll maybe sell Gini and Keita and bring in SMS and maybe Jadon Sancho on AML. However that would be rather expensive I guess. Keita and Gini wasn’t great last season and Gini wants a new contract, but since he’s 29 I’m not sure plus he’ll probably want much higher wages. What would you do? Any other ideas or options? Cheers.
  2. Did you give it a go? How did it work out?
  3. Thanks, I think I'll try this setup for a while, but would you then go with the MCR as a B2B? Yeah I try to always watch matches with comprehensive highlights, the problem is often that I don't know exactly how to adjust properly to what I'm seeing. So I appreciate your help. Also, I was wondering what the difference between the F9 and the DLF is, the F9 roams more freely? Ok so the tactic would look something likes this now, thanks again. Btw, does it matter in any way what side the BPD plays on regarding my wingbacks, on on attack on on support (with TAA who often loses 1on1 situations against opposition wingers)?
  4. Thanks for taking the time to answer, appreciate any help. Is there a specific area that you think I should focus on? I was thinking about changing the carrilero to a B2B to get more penetration from midfield, or changing the AML to a IW or IF to get more players in the box. I seem to need more goalscoring threats but I don’t really know how. However changing the AML would require changing other roles as well on the left flank. What would you suggest? Do I need to change the TI and maybe go wider in possession? My tactic worked well first half of the season, but now teams are playing more defensive and cautious against me so that may of course explain my problem creating chances. No he’s my 18 year old backup, Robertson was a bit tired, with high injury risk so he was just resting.
  5. Hi. I've tried to create a tactic after reading a lot here about balance and about roles/duties but I'm having a lot of problems creating chances and scoring, and even when I do manage to score I often concede a goal late, often after the opposition's winger/fullback sprints through my defence and score. The last 10 of my 30 goals conceded have come in the last 10 minutes of the game. This is my tactic I'm using. My players have good morale och great cohesion and they are familiar with the tactic, but they are really struggling. I don' really have certain style of football I want to play, attacking but I don't really care about possession or style. But I need help to create chances and score, and at the moment Salah is my goalscoring threat but I would like to get Mane (who usually play AML) and Firmino to score more but how do I do that while still maintaining balance in attack? Thanks! Also attaching the match stats from my last game.
  6. Yeah hard to say without the tactic but I had the same problem but was playing ’work ball into box’ and ’mixed crossing’. Made a new tactic and some of the changes (among others) where ’early crosses’ and ’low crosses’ and have been scoring som nice goals from crosses since then. But also, sometimes mabye it’s from lack off support in the box. When I was frustrated with the exact same thing I started to look at what options the winger/wingback had in the box. Sometimes there was only one of my players in there and 4-5 defenders. So maybe they are waiting on the ball cause there’s no one to cross to, in which case the best option maybe is to knock it at the defender and get a corner?
  7. Thanks both of you. It’s first season (first transfer window) so he’s only 26. Don’t really understand why he’s listed but seems to be by request.
  8. Yeah same here, but I usually delegate team training to Pep Lijenders so maybe I have to take control more to minimise injuries Edit: 5 days later and now I’ve lost Trent for 4 weeks and Salah for 6 weeks.
  9. Pogba just got transfer listed on my save for 90 mil euro. Is it worth buying him (I can afford it and could use him) or is that a bit too much would you say?
  10. How have you managed the first months without Alisson? I’m just about to start the season with community shield against City and I now have Lonergan, Adrian and Alisson injured. Lonergan 7-10 weeks and Adrian 3-5 weeks. Glad to retire after 1 month at the post...
  11. Ok haven’t really played since FM 15/16 but just bought FM 19 and started my usual Liverpool save. So far we’re doing ok, 2nd in the league in dec with 2pts behind City and won my CL group ahead of Bayern (beat them 3-0 away and 2-0 at home). Brought in some young talents and let go of Moreno, Sturridge and Lallana. However having trouble with injury risk updates vs players demanding first team football. Every time I’m told a player has high/v.high injury risk I’ll rest them a game to avoid injuries (still picking up a few though). But now some of them are starting to complain ’cause they’re not starting every game (even rotation players). Anyone else having this issue? How risky is it to play them with high/v.high injury risk? I can’t be having all these conflicts with my players just because I don’t sant to loose them to injuries.
  12. P.s. I have Hector, Meré and Klünter still on holiday on the 17th of july, anyone know what date they will return? D.s.
  13. Ok so I haven’t played any FM at all since FM15 and I thought that this experiment might help me get back into it again. Therefore this will mostly be trail and error but hopefully it will get me to know the game again. I got the 4-2-3-1 DM Wide formation: ST AML - AMC - AMR DM - DM DL - DC - DC - DR GK The biggest weekness/challange is of course the big gap between my DMs and my AMs. I therefor went with a SV role for one of my DMs, making him push up more, and an AP(s) for my AMC hoping he’ll stay back a bit spraying passes. For my other roles I’m not sure yet and will have to see during the first months what seems to work best. For TI I went with Push higer up, Use offside trap, Close down more, Work ball into box and Prevent GK distribution. So for, after 2 friendlies, at least the team seems compact enough and there seems to be no gap in midfield. My keeper has been set to SK(s) but that still seem to leave to much gap between him and my defence so might go for SK(a). I’ll probably go for a counter mentality hoping it will balance the fact that we are playing higher up the pitch. So here it goes! Hopefully I’ll learn by my mistakes..!
