  1. I mean, your results look perfectly fine for a team that's in the top 4. You've only lost once in 90 minutes all season. One thing I do find useful in a 4-2-3-1 is to have a DLP with the "Gets further forward" trait. If they have great off the ball and decisions they can make a run from deep that can really open up a defence.
  2. Have to say, this adds a nice little touch to the save. A fan owned club, using only academy graduates
  3. Cabinteely - Irish Premier Division 2023 League Table - Deservedly relegated, we were lucky to bring it to the final day against Derry but could only muster a 1-1. Leinster Senior Cup - Couldn't defend the cup. League Cup - 1/4 finals. Senior Challenge Cup - Out as soon as we were in. Club: Youth Intake - Promising intake, could do with a central midfielder or two. O'Hanlon gives us yet another number 10 option, but Roche fits nicely into our defence alongside Holland. Finances - Well in the black again. Key Players: Stephen Cleary 21 - Won't sign a
  4. Great stuff. The difference in quality isn't much between the two tiers in Ireland (in FM at least). Surprised to see Rovers relatively struggle, them and Jack Byrne usually dominate the domestic game for a while.
  5. Cabinteely - Irish Premier Division 2022 I was expecting a struggle. League Table - Absolutely ecstatic to avoid relegation. Leinster Senior Cup - A lowly regional cup, but still great to win our first silverware. League Cup - We couldn't repeat last season's heroics. Senior Challenge Cup - Brave effort against a dominant Shamrock Rovers. Youth Intake - Another good intake for refreshing the squad. Campos gave us a much needed striker (Portuguese!) and Purcell is a nice creative player. Finances - Well in the black Key Players: Stephen Cleary 21 - I
  6. Time for a new challenge. I've never completed a Youth Only save before (I love my wheela deala style!) so here's my first attempt! Cabinteely - Irish First Division 2021 Our media prediction was 8th out of 10 teams. I felt we could do a little better than that, but I didn't quite have promotion in mind off the bat. League Table - Truth be told there's not much difference in the quality between teams in this tier. Absolutely romped the play offs. Despite this, we weren't ready for promotion and next season I fear for us. League Cup - A great money spinning run saw us lose t
  7. Your control tactic looks quite reliant on Auba for goals, if he's marked out of the game against a deep defence you will see trouble. Consider in this scenario how you will get bodies forward from deep to support him. For your counter tactic, the FB role is more cautious than WB, without the need to set to a defensive mentality. Other than that, your roles look ok to me.
  8. I have good success with a similar system at QPR, currently top of the Championship with 10 games left. One thing I've found very effective this year due to the update in what focus does (actually prioritizes passes there now) is overlaps. I have a WB/A on the left side, overlapping an IF/S with focus passes down the left. This results in very nice interplay where my left back often finds himself unmarked for a free cross into the middle, and my IF gets into more Striker-like positions.
  9. YOU KNOW THEY SAY ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL. BUT YOU LOOK AT ME AND YOU LOOK AT MILES JACOBSEN AND YOU CAN SEE THAT STATEMENT IS NOT TRUE! SEE NORMALLY IF YOU GO 1 ON 1 WITH ANOTHER GENIUS YOU GOT A 50/50 CHANCE OF WINNING! BUT I'M A GENETIC FREAK AND I'M NOT NORMAL! SO YOU GOT A 25% AT BEST AT BEAT ME! AND THEN YOU ADD GEGENPRESS TO THE MIX, YOU THE CHANCES OF WINNING DRASTIC GO DOWN! SEE THE 3 WAY AT FM21 BETA YOU GOT A 33 1/3 CHANCE OF WINNING. BUT I, I GOT A 66 2/3 CHANCE OF WINNING CAUSE NEIL BROCK KNOWS HE CAN'T BEAT ME AND HE'S NOT EVEN GONNA TRY! SO MILES YOU TAKE YOUR 33 1/3 CHANCE MI
  10. I've always believed that the "slump" comes from a squad building issue rather than tactical. If the tactic makes you over-achieve at first, the opposition will treat you like you're a big fish. If your players are not up to the standard of a big fish, then you'll naturally see that struggle.
  11. I always like to keep it simple Squad building is much more important than tactics alone imho.
  12. We'll agree on this. I believe the ME is long overdue an overhaul and in 2020 the logic can surely be more detailed than "Oh this team has 9 world class players and the other team has 11 average ones with a lower rep, therefore team A should win and score goals somehow".
  13. I've agreed that it's not realistic if you read my post again, but if you have 10 world class players and one passenger, you'll win those RNG battles overall across the pitch, it's how AI works and why this experiment is getting results. The GKs scoring worldies and playing like Xavi, is another argument however about how FM shows these events to us, I believe there was a custom unofficial patch that enhanced that, it would be interesting for this experiment to use that and see what happens. @thiagoanjo I remember reading in the threads about the custom ME that was doing the rounds
  14. FM is a game of numbers and math, it simply can't take into account that Goalkeepers do not have the awareness to play up front, never mind a youth team goalkeeper. I guess the only real life reference that comes to mind is to David James' performance up front for Man City some years back. I can't imagine this guy outscoring Aubameyang even if being supplied by Mane/Salah et all. But FM simply can't see it this way, because again it's a game of math and probability. If Liverpool have 10 world class players and 1 passenger, the Liverpool team will win the majority of
