  1. Hello, I'm not sure if this is a known problem but I recently bought Football Manager 2020 and have owned previous versions and on this version the game has decided not to create a Football Manager 2020 folder in my Documents. I'm playing the game on a Mac and I have launched it but it still hasn't created it despite me playing for a whole season! I've even saved tactics and they're know where to be found! Hope you can help me. Regards, Colin
  2. Did you re-train him to be a complete forward so he was perfect green in that area or did you just go with it? And I might also give it a try. I'm trying control and slight possession based tactic at home but maybe I should go for direct and athletic. Care to reveal your tactics?
  3. I’m having the same problem with Lukaku. No matter what role I give him he doesn’t perform. And as you said, he’ll have 4-5 chances and squander every single one. And the 4-2-3-1 is really difficult to get to grips with this year. Even with Cleon’s latest article I’m still struggling.
  4. Hello, I've searched the forums but can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I'm looking to see if anyone has tried emulating Pochettino's Spurs tactics.
  5. Do you have an e-mail address I can send the screenshots, as I'm not quite sure how to do it on here?
  6. Sure, the next time it happens, I'll print a screenshot. It does happen quite frequently, usually when I go from windowed to full screen or the other way round.
  7. Hello, I was wondering if anyone has had any success replicating Klopp's Dortmund/Liverpool tactics. I've tried myself but really struggling to get what I want, I'm using close down much more and higher tempo but to no real success. I think the fact I've lost the dressing room through refusing to sell the likes of Lallana, Allen and Emre Can to the clubs that have bidded for them isn't helping the matter!
  8. I'm using a MAC and sometimes I switch between windowed and full resolution 1920 x whatever it is. Anyway, sometimes when I go to my tactical instructions screen, it turns from green, to black, and when it's black you can barely see if you're going higher tempo or not.
  9. Maybe change the Target Man Support for an Attacking Midfielder support? Not entirely sure if this is correct, but usually they help out defensively. Or the other option is to play a defensive midfielder, so 4-1-4-1. 4-2-3-1 is strong against 4-4-2 because you have players playing between the lines, you've effectively got a 3 man midfield versus a two man midfield, so a DM should combat that.
  10. Van Gaal has said he'll use different combinations in midfield and not just Depay as part of the three. He said in an interview he may decided to use Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger and Carrick in some games. I think he'll probably use those three together in away games or maybe in Europe away.
  11. Attacking down the left side should probably be an option to tick. Van Gaal seems to be overloading that area of the pitch with either Blind/Shaw, Young and even Fellaini over there, also Rooney tends to drop outside the box on that side of the pitch too. Herrera, Mata, Valencia tend to try and overload the right wing, but all the attacks predominantly come from the left. Trying to recreate this tactic myself. Would Mata be a wide playmaker? He often drifts inside.
  12. Has anyone had any decent success with West Ham in the first season? I usually turn off first window transfer budgets. But I'm struggling to find a system, shape, tactical instructions to fit West Ham. I always struggle or maybe I'm just not giving it enough time.
  13. Love your tactic. United play the 'United way' with this tactic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67Wzgzauo_E
  14. Yeah I'd say Santi Cazorla roamed around. He was also superb in the game. I'm going to have a look at creating something when I get time but some good ideas floated about in this thread. http://www.whoscored.com/Matches/829683/MatchReport/England-Premier-League-2014-2015-Manchester-City-Arsenal
  15. Arsenal's win over Man City inspired me to try and create a tactic that's superb on the counter against the top teams. I've not played Football Manager for a month now, so I'm a little rusty. But off the top of my head drop deeper, mark tighter, stay on feet, pass into space are probably some of the things to adopt. Counter mentality with Fluid maybe? Any ideas?
