    No I want to ask WHY do my CBs move non-sensically out of position and how to prevent it regardless of the opposition. It's not like this problem only happens when I face top teams. It always happens. 

    Do you maybe have something weird going on with your ass man and opposition instructions? Like do you have him set to choose the opposition instructions?

    Also might be worth checking if any tight marking player instructions might be set too.

  2. I would change the IF's both to support and the DLP to defend on both tactics, and then look to see if penetration in the box is ok, if not, then consider changing one of the IF's to attack, but imo support should be fine on IF's with positive mentality, also consider changing one of the IF's to a IW.

    Also consider top tactic may aswell just be a 4-1-4-1 and bottom tactic may aswell just be 4-2-3-1.


    I'm guessing it works fine for you so far, then why the changes?

    - What in hell's name is a Trequartista? (Yes, I read the description) What I mean is: how do you decide whether to play your striker as a Poacher, an Advanced Forward, a Target Man, etc.? And how does that impact what positions to set all my other players as? This is the area I am the most out to sea about. Any sort of guide or general reading about how positions interact with each other (in football or in FM) would be really appreciated... I can barter for knowledge about hockey or american football!

    There's a guide in this thread, in PDF form, about roles and ways to utilise them in your tactics. 



    Taken from the help forums here:



    As for affiliates, if moneys tight and 27k a year is alot of money for your club, then I would go with that one. Also it should possible to get more than 1 affiliate club, it is for larger clubs anyway. Also if moneys tight, then yeah try and get by with as few coaches/other staff as possible, transfers and quality players should be priority imo, unless you got a guaranteed rich vein of youth coming through.


    I would try to get the best players you possibly can, generally you want be looking at mental attributes first, then fitness and the technical attributes last, but as you're a lower league club I would be tempted to look at fitness attributes first, then mentals and then technicals last.


    Check this youtube out channel for a huge wealth of FM knowledge:



  4. Well the easiest way would be to put a Half back in the DM position, although he might advance further up the pitch depending on mentality and once you're in the opponents half and attacking round their box, I use it in some of tactics and it's a really good role.


    As for moving the RB in, you could have the left cb set to move out wide, the right cb to move inwards and the rb on no nonsense full back set to move inwards via player instructions, might be possible.

  5. Im currently managing West ham and Arsenal as 2 different managers, there's nothing been tricky about switching between the 2 not even when they play each other. The newspaper article interviews can be a bit awkward coz you don't know which manager is being interviewed, but you can guess after the first or second question.

    The only weird thing is when you set the game up, the "add another manager" button on the pop-up menu doesn't work, so you add the first manager normally and then on that teams home page you add the second manager using the top right menu where you save game etc.

  6. Another question here. I was looking at random player stats from big european teams controlled by the AI and I noticed that most of their players played a huge amount of matches in the season ( even players with rather low physicals).

    With any team I control I feel as if I need to rotate the squad almost every match even though I never go beyond medium workload on training, and I don't play some insane high tempo, ultra pressing style.

    I'm obviously missing something here. It would be great to not lose games due to having to field my <18s :D

    You should have a rest day after matches. You will be ok to use players at 89% condition and up.

    If your team has lots of players who play International fixtures and your team has lots of mid-week fixtures, you should look into giving you're squad an extra rest day here and there.
