  1. Thanks for the reply. It's working really well though, so I don't feel the need to change anything. Am at the start of my fifth season and everything is humming. I agree that some of the instrictions are counter-intuitive, that's because I went with the vertical tiki taka template, changed a few things and then got results way before I expected to. You're right that the trequartista is the main goal threat, and that he doesn't do too much creating other than that. He does however fit very nicely into what is a very patient, possession based tactic. As mentioned the tactic performs better defensively than in attack, It's in no way toothless though, and other than the trequartista I also get good goal returns from the winger, the striker and both midfielders. It also kind of plays into how long shots are a bit overpowered in this version of the game, and both CM strata players get a lot of shooting opportunities. In my first few season a good amount of my goals came from this, but this has been toned down a bit as the quality of my other attacking players have gotten better. The right wingback on attack is my main creator. He got 20 assists in my last season (in 27(6) games). But enough thread hijacking I guess. Just wanted to show that it's certainly possible to create a defensivley stable tactic without too much midfield protection for the regista.
  2. Four of them are regens, so wouldn't expect you to know them. Everyone should know Arabidze though, what a player. Very good and very cheap. I also have a high block with my front three closing down more and the rest of the midfield closing passing lanes, to get that pressing trap everyone is talking about. Other than that there aren't really many player instructions - this was one of the saves where everything clicked surprisingly fast and I didn't need to change a lot from my original setup. As you can see it has its origin in a Vertical tiki taka template, and i really just changed a few things to get it like this. And it's working better than anything else I've tried in FM19.
  3. At the moment I play with a regista and the same formation as the OP. Actually I use exactly the same roles as him from midfield and back to the keeper - only difference is that my mezzala is on support. The tactic performs (perhaps surprisingly?) extremely well defensively. So unless you're talking about the need for one more support role in midfield I don't agree with you here.
  4. Juan Roa looks absolutely great value. Had a £230k offer accepted.
  5. Wow - that goal is insane! And good to be reminded of just how fun a striker Emeghara was in his heyday. And double wow - that thread really is nostalgia lane. A great bunch posting really good updates. Just going through Grasshoppers' playing squad from that time is great entertainment for me.
  6. Young Boys huh. So much for loyalty.. Looks like you're having a fun save though! After a swiss break for FM 17 and 18 I expect I'll be back at Grasshoppers soon. Always feels like home. The squad REALLY didn't tempt me this time around though, and there isn't much in real life suggesting that it'll be better for the new game. Still time to go back to where everything feels right though.
  7. Little update on Hugo Vetlesen one and a half season into the game: Insane mental attributes for an 18 year old.
  8. Not talking about the concept, but the value quoted relative to the standard of the league and player.
  9. Markus Solbakken, son of the great Ståle Solbakken. Looks like a good prospect, and, like Eng Strand, available for peanuts. In this save Stabæk paid ~£20k.
  10. This is Sander Eng Strand at the start of the second norwegian league season. Starts at Ham Kam, on a youth contract so available for just £1.9k in compensation. Has been at my club for around three months at this stage in his development. Five star potential(from a Rosenborg point of view obviously).
  11. Good one. Purchased him for my Rosenborg team ahead of the first season - is a really cheap, two-footed wing back option with good dribbling skills and an attacking mindset. His crossing leaves something to be desired, but great value for what you have to pay.
  12. Yeah, this is definitly something new. Tried to bid for unhappy FC Midtjylland striker Paul Onuachu, and was quoted £40M. That's for a 23 year old player valued at 1.5m, that doesn't have much room to grow.
  13. Another good one from the norwegian bargain basement: Internationalist Even Hovland have returned to his former club Sogndal after an unsuccessful spell in Germany, and looks like a great option if you're looking for a cheap defender. [/IMG]
  14. Hugo Vetlesen around 6 months into the first (norwegian) season: https://imgur.com/KRPxyVf Doesn't turn eighteen until february next year either. High hopes for this one.
