  1. Well, obviously we have to understand that this is a game, things will not work as a real football, no matter how big a team is in SI working on this?
  2. @Perb I just found your topic. I was having the same problem with my save. 4123 or 4231, quite successful at the beginning of the season and then disasters in January / February. I went 7-10 matches without a win in two separate seasons, everything just fell apart. Have you continued to make it better in past month? What have you learned since?
  3. Was this fixed since then? I seem to notice same things happening, beginning of April.
  4. These are my stats for Bologna, first season, after 31 games. Free kick crosses: scored 3 : conceded 7 From corners: scored 3 : conceded 2 I thought I should improve defending FKs, but I can understand from the above it is not bad at all. For corners, I have set up my own routine and having conceding only 2, I presume this works fine. I do have tall defenders - both DCs, but my DL is also 192cm and good in heading/jumping. I put defender with high heading and jumping reach on the near 6m zonal marking wingback or DMC with good hea
  5. Yes, you could be right. I am trying to hold it together (except I am not going to press conferences), but morale is not high after losing few in the row. There are few of old players with high influence who are not satisfied with "depth of the squad", Soriano wants new big contract (already the highest paid player and not showing for it) and this seems to rub into the others... Still, I would love to spend some time fixing those wingbacks cutting in and crossing to the other side.
  6. Hey. I am struggling with this one as well. Actually, most of the goals I concede, are coming from opposing backs running into the space. Usually, they are 2 to 1 to my back, with my winger staying up, or they are running into the space on the other side and scoring. I put some images with examples here: https://community.sigames.com/topic/517561-full-season-tactical-analysis-tactics-goals/ Did you manage to find better solution since your post? I am also not too keen on setting my wingers on man-marking.
  7. And finally, I wanted to solve the problem with opposing DL/DR actions. Here are some goals which are showing problems with closing opposing full-backs. Here, the opposing DR (16) is running into the space, while my winger (36) stays very wide, wondering. The unopposed cross to Ronaldo's head and that is it. Why is my winger staying up (he has Wsu role)? Why does not he follow? And should my And MC (16) be lower to help and close this hole? My DMC (17) is too deep, he is not helping in this situation at all. Second example, their DL (8) is getting high up, with my D
  8. As just comparing tactics did not help, I went through highlights of 31 matches and made a list how goals were scored. This finally gave me some concrete information which I could work on. First, how goals were scored. Shots 10-16m: Bologna 9 : opponent 8 Headers 5m: 7 : 3 Headers 8m+: 7 : 12 (!) penalties: 5 : 3 Shots 5-10m: 4 : 5 1-1 counter: 3 : 4 long shots: 2 : 5 (!) running into space: 2 : 3 Scoring: I was surprised that only 3 goals came from clear 1-1 chances from a
  9. Following from two recent threads, where I was asking for help for my unsuccessful Bologna campaign, I restarted the game with the same club, trying to be more careful about tactical approach and spend more time with it. https://community.sigames.com/topic/516742-which-match-data-stats-to-look-at-to-find-why-tactic-doesnt-work https://community.sigames.com/topic/516383-unable-to-recognize-tactical-problems-help-needed-bologna-4-1-2-3 The season started good, I even spent some time in top 5, but 31 games into the season, after two series of bad results (first 3D and 4L and then
  10. Ok, someone might call this semantics. I wanted to say that you were persistant enough that I might try to employ 4123 formation, which I tried for days and could not get it working. It is working now and I was trying to analyze what I changed in my tactic in comparison to the one we have chatted above.
  11. Bologna is back! Well, I wanted to report back. I have started my new save with Bologna and things are going much better. Lot of this due to the change in thinking caused by @Experienced Defender, thank you man, but also due to taking more time to think about the tactics. I am now watching first 15 min of each game in full match in 2D, trying to sort out things I might have noticed. I still don't understand everything, but it helps. After 8 matchdays in Serie A, I am in excellent 4th position, despite having very difficult schedule, playing Fiorentina & Inter away and Juve
  12. I've been looking through Youtube tips for FM2020. Well, most of them are focused on "wonderkids", but there is still some nice content. This is 10-minute video about analysing a tactic, which in part answers to the question I set. It speaks about using tactics and analysis to fix parts of the tactics:
  13. I get it, so instead of man marking, adjust opposition instructions. I do closing down sometimes, if I know before the match they are attacking via offensive FB/WBs. I did not ever use tight marking on FB/WBs, I was thinking this would stretch my shape as well. What I also don't ever do is tighter marking on players with high acceleration and high dribbling attributes. Am I doing this wrong way? I will try with player instructions as well. I presume it also depends on the player attributes, his playing style, how eager he is to close down and defend etc.
  14. @Kharza_FM, you've mentioned this last week. I have the same problem and the only way to solve it seems to pull my wingers back and/or get them to man mark the opposition wingback. I understand that you have a smarter solution for this?
