  1. interesting what you say about brazil. Are still thinking of a save in brazil? also have you thought of setting up a feeder club there maybe?
  2. Thanks ozil and axehan. Interesting to understand. I am learning my way around tactics so its interesting to see your approach. Theres a lot to learn. Brazil would be interesting, but I also agree about the lack of top level club competition. Which side would you pick?
  3. Hope to see you carry on posting. This has been superb to follow. Will you think about FM2019 yet? The 4-2-3-1 looks interesting. I love the simplicity. I notice you switched from a Deeplying Forward to Complete Forward. I wondered what's the thinking behind that?
  4. Ozil - following from @denen123s question about centre backs, I notice you've gone for Ball Playing Defenders. What made you go for that change? elsewhere on the forums the role has been criticised a lot for long balls?
  5. Great thread! Theres something very Sir Alex Ferguson about the way you structured the club, developing the academy and the domestic transfer strategy. You were also ahead of the game with Felix as he's one of the best young players in Europe now. Have you thought about trying him in a similar role to real life?
  6. Yea I can see you can swap the wingers. At the moment I have two very similar central midfielders, I want one to hold whilst the other drives forward but I want them to take it in turns. Any ideas??
  7. Hey people, Apologies if this has been covered but I did search and could not see a result. Where has the swap players option gone?? Thanks!
  8. Please could someone post screenshots of Jack Wilshere & Aaron Ramsey? I have not got the demo yet. Much appreciated.
  9. I have been an avid Championship / Football Manager fan for many years now and I have got to say that I think the latest version is the best yet which is why I have to apologise to moan but I would like to say that Steam has to be the single most frustrating piece of software I have ever used in my whole life. I am not a technical person at all and have found this to make the current game literally unplayable (because steam won't allow me to!). Over the past 2 weeks I have found myself staring in dismay at error message after error message and I am in the process of reinstalling Football Manager ... due to yet another error (when I would love to be getting my teeth stuck into the second season of my Ajax save however I feel that the save file has been lost during the latest c*ck up). I play FM on my laptop which means I do not have access to the internet all the time. My first problem was Steam's Offline mode simply does not work unless you alter settings. Ironically I needed the internet to find this out in the end. Great... Then when I got home I decided to switch to the online mode and everything completely c*cked up. I get the message saying the "Game is currently unavailable. Please Try Later" ... WTF? I pay £30 to play a computer game and they say sorry it's unavailable?? This went on for 2 days until I googled it. Surprise, surprise I am not alone and there's even youtube videos dedicated to solving the issues. Started going through the solutions one by one, none working until eventually I restarted the computer, clicked steam and it said Updating... then it got to 99% and my whole computer crashed with a problem with the hard drive ... great. Luckily I have a friend who is good with computers and he did a technical System Restore. Now Steam will load but FM won't load at all, also each time I click it it tells me I am logging on from a new computer so check my emails... which I am not. So that's been the last week for me ... haven't been able to play Football Manager ... lost my bl**dy save game (2 seasons worth) ... broke my f'ing computer ... wasted hours and hours of my spare time and got nowhere! Incidentally whilst I have been typing Steam has come up with another ambiguous error message saying it cannot reinstall .. I am now uninstalling and going to start all over again. Once again terribly sorry for the rant, if someone could help me get to the bottom of this terrible mess and let me play the game it would be much appreciated... On a positive note look up Marc-Andre ter Stegen ... World Class
  10. Thank you very much. Has anyone had any thoughts about how to play them both together? I am worried as they seem to be very similar players both suited to the MCa position. Comparing the two, both are excellent on the ball with attributes in terms of first touch, passing, technique, composure, creativity & flair. Both would be very good in high pressing systems with Wilshere having high aggression, bravery, determination & work rate and Ramsey with determination, work rate, natural fitness & stamina. Finally both provide a good goalscoring threat with high off the ball, and composure. Whilst they both have common strengths they also have common weaknesses. Ramsey lacks tackling, anticipation, positioning, bravery and strength as does Wilshere with all bar anticipation and bravery which suggests that the midfield will lack metal, a common theme in midfields of recent years. They also both lack influence so we are lacking a leader. The final issue is a lack of pace which is not a huge problem in midfield however if you decide to push either of them forward then it would take some of the sting out of the attack.
  11. Would somebody mind posting a screenshot of Ramsey and Wilshere's attributes this time round? I have not yet had chance to download the demo but would be interested to see. Thanks!
  12. Hello everyone, I am a bit (OK alot) of a geek when it comes to football in that I enjoy the tactics and strategy of the game just as much as the action and find the subject fascinating to read about. I was wondering if anyone could recommend any good tactical websites that I may not of heard of? Here's a few that I enjoy: - www.zonalmarking.com - - http://leftbackinthechangingroom.blogspot.com - http://www.guardian.co.uk/profile/jonathanwilson - http://www.tomwfootball.com/category/tactics/ - www.si.com - www.arsenalcolumn.co.uk If anyone finds any particular subject interesting then do let me know, I may be able to point you in the direction of a good read. Personally I am fascinated by the False 9 and the tactical systems around that, also the 'modern centre half' with the DM dropping back to DC and the wingbacks rushing forward. Cheers Great Success!
  13. Sorry about the formatting, I am new but hopefully you get the gist
  14. Hi Guys, Just literally a very quick question. I wondered if anyone had any experience playing with FR / FLs as opposed to AMR / AMLs? I am thinking about playing a typical 4-3-3 (4-1-2-2-1) but inverting the front line. Something like this: FL FR AMC MC MC WBL DMC WBR DC DC To me that looks a little more like the way Barca play, with Messi the AMC attacking space, the two very advanced inside forwards and then the midfield trio supported by advancing fullbacks. Wondered what everyone's experience was like with the FR and FL positions? Cheers
