  1. Yeah I suspect the AP role ends up being more of a chance creator, but not the provider of the final pass. Have you considered just playing him in a non playmaker role, also changing the DLP, that way play ins't funneled through them. I would imagine given his attributes etc Ozil would still find himself heavily involved in attacking play, but potentially with a bit more freedom?
  2. Nice season there mate. Interesting tactic, I thought you might have been a bit more leaky but it worked well. I too play with a poacher in Auba and he has done extremely well. How did you find Ramsey and Ozil played?
  3. So been slowly chugging along with an Arsenal save trying out the poacher. This will likely be my long term save, hence going a bit slow investing time in most aspects of the game. The plan was to have Auba as a poacher and Lacazette as a DLFs/CFs. Performance wise, from a long term save it has been a huge success. My first proper attempt at a 4-4-2 and we are quite simply rolling. However, on the tactical challenge front, it is far more touch and go right now. Both strikers have simply been brilliant! Its neck and neck half way through the first season between the two forwards.
  4. This looks like a bit of fun to get me stuck into FM18. Just recently fired up a save with Arsenal and had created a 4-4-2 (ish) with a CF, no reason I can't change some things round to get a Poacher in it.
  5. Haven't been posting (or really reading) in sometime. But saw this and got caught up in it. Great thread. Making me get the itch again. Going to read the other two now!
  6. Ah right, thanks, thought so, but couldn't remember if the top of my head. So the f9 coming deep you really would be wanting an attack duty on the wrong to make the most of that space. I'm not that familiar with the ramdeuter role but it aggressively hunts space doesn't it? (Sorry don't have the game on hand, but feeling much more up for tactical discussion than reconciling a budget!) So that could work quite well with a f9 dropping extremely deep. Might have to try that out in an upcoming save.
  7. Just to clarify, by 50% do you mean 50% of the slider or at the 50% notch which from memory is all the way left? I would say go with Ozil as striker if you continue. Got all the right attributes for a world class f9. Worked really well for me in the past. Just wondering if some of his ppms could be a bit off. Doesn't he have comes deep, which with the nature of the f9 already doing that could that be overkill?
  8. Top post I like how it is organised and I can look through each players development. I have read through the entire thing, but am sure I must have missed it, but a quick question, with the General Training, you say you set it to Balanced, but at what level is that? Just leave on average ( as in your screenshot) I guess this leads into another question; do you train this while focusing on fitness in the preseason. I usually crank it to high, and while I see the players getting match fit quickly, they do seem to be picking up a lot of muscular injuries, perhaps due to overworking? Or just coin
