  1. @crusadertsar I noticed that you changed from a IWB, MEZ and RPM to a WBs, CMa and CMs using Real Sociedad. What PI do you use for those positions? I've started a save myself using them and implemented your tactic. Also, even though you have 'shorter passing' set in the team instructions, the player instructions are still set to standard passing. Is that correct? I somehow managed to sign Rodri on loan from Man City and he is fantastic in the DM role. He literally never gives the ball away and keeps possession brilliantly. We are playing some very nice football indeed but the match
  2. I bought Haaland for my Wolves team when he was 21. He's been quite underwhelming for me despite me winning the league and Champions Leauge, but to be honest, I think most of the problems are down to the match engine (although I'm sure I would be told it's my tactics...) He regularly misses so many easy chances, but then so does every other striker I've used. Practically all of his goals come from headers via corners or long throws (again, down to the match engine IMO...) He has the trait 'Likes to beat offside trap' but using him as a pressing forward he is never on the shoulder of
  3. I'll have a little play around with the front three to see if I can get more out of them. Haaland has made a good start to the new season, but most of his goals are coming via headers from corners and free kicks again. He misses loads of chances but always seems to score the ones which are ruled out for offside...
  4. Haaland may have been a touch offside but if Chilwell had taken another touch he could have squared it. There are far too many occasions where this happens in my opinion. I get the same from Hakimi on the other side. He tends to dribble right to the byline and shoot into the side netting a lot. And both WB's are set to Cross More Often and Shoot Less. I'll give it a go with the width set to narrow and see how it goes. What role do you have your striker on? Complete Forward? A am having a lot of success but as I stated, the majority of my goals are coming from corners, free
  5. Didn't realise I had missed it... Edited post to include the tactic. Thanks.
  6. I have started playing after a long absence (FM2013 was the last version I played) due to a change of job meaning that whilst I'm in the office, there is not much to do, leaving me with loads of free time to play. Using my current formation has been a huge success for me so far, but I'm not entirely happy with it. As you can see, it has brought me a huge amount of success even though I have very little possession in most games: This was with my second string side out Pre-season friendly I finished 3rd, 4th, and then won the
  7. Thanks for the advice. I made the changes you suggested and won my last three away games 4-1, 3-1, 4-1. The matches themselves have been pretty even but I took my chances while the opposition didn't. Seems a bit more solid at the back now.
  8. Same for me, thanks Llama. I used the guide in the first post and to create my tactic for Southampton. We play high pressing, fast attacking football. I regularly end up with 60%+ possession at home. I completely outplayed Chelsea and Arsenal at home, pressing the life out of them high up the pitch but I very rarely score more than 1 goal per game. This is my tactic: I've also made a mirrored version switching the wide roles around along with the CM roles. However, I am struggling with away games. I find that I am drawing too many or conceding sloppy goals, even against the bottom teams.
