  1. Personally, I would be happy with small new 'features' as long as the match engine is improved. FM20 had an unrealistic match engine which I could accept if it was fun, unfortunately it was neither. This is the first edition of the game since CM01/02 that I will not put the hours in if the match engine is similar.
  2. I am 10+ years into my save and I have built one the best teams on the game, however nothing is making me want to load the game up again. The majority of goals are from set pieces, with the rest being long shots scored just after set pieces. The cycle at the moment is loading the game up becuase I'm wanting to play, getting to the first game and quitting straight after. For the first time since CM days I will be buying the demo before paying for FM21, and that is saying something for its my favourite game since I can remember.
  3. I had this when I had state of the art youth facilities! Luckily they didn't sack me
  4. Might be wrong but I think it's something to do with randomness
  5. Thanks From your testing in the beta, would you say 4-4-2 is still the way to go? I've been trying 1 striker with no success so far
  6. Would be nice to have something to use as a base just so I've got a general idea of what is working in the beta. First post in here, thanks for the tactics
  7. It seems to me that goals scored in league games are capped over the season so that the numbers match the leagues average goals over the season in real life. Its obvious because in friendlies/cup games for me, players seem to do what they're being asked to do. For example in a friendly a winger will cut back / cross for a striker in the box, compared to a league game where he will 9/10 shoot into the side netting so that you dont score too many goals. I've just gone from winning 1-0 in the league missing countless chances to winning 7-0 in the champions league, and i believe its beca
  8. I changed my wing backs to full backs support and added get forward. Essentially the same instructions as a wing back just without runs wide with the ball, I think that is what causes them to dribble to the byline and shooting into the side netting. They seem to play how I want them to now, worth a try.
  9. I can't enjoy this game at all at the moment, I'm sure these have all been brought up already but the two big problems are: * Goalkeepers make a save and then are stuck in position unable to save any rebound shot * Crosses are too effective with the majority of goals coming from them Until these problems with the match engine are fixed I simply can't enjoy any matches and find it hard to believe that this is the full release and not the beta
  10. Now I've got a good team I have won 10 trophies in the past 2 seasons with Derby... A bit too easy now with this tactic lol
  11. Another thing I didn't mention aswell as the opposition instructions - If the other team are making chances slip the defense to deeper or standard... and if your playing away in a tough game start on deeper and standard mentality - change to counter if needed
  12. I now set opposition instructions at close down both wingers and show the rm to the left side and lm onto the right side and defensively it is much better
  13. I've got to say after several miserable attempts at making my own tactics and downloading other created tactics this is the one that I've found works the best. I would say the only flaw to this tactic is the amount of goals you concede from wingers getting past the wing backs and crossing it in for an unmarked striker. I've tried tweaking the player instructions a bit to prevent it but still the vast majority of goals that you concede are like this. I set my wing backs to man mark the wingers a few times which did actually improve it but they were less of a threat going forward. Sill, the be
