  1. Fantastic tactic... Sitting top in the Championship with QPR, likely going to win and predictions pre season were 20th! Amazing defensively...
  2. Nope, I just went off what I look for in a player depending on the position I'm playing them in. Sometimes if a 5 star wonderkid pops up but can only play attacking centre mid, I'll decide whether I turn him into a striker or centre mid and see how he gets on. Some CAMs play great in the wide positions as well. I've always played FM like that. Sometimes turning very good ball playing centre backs into defensive mids etc. I also just let my assistant crack on with training, but I do the individual training stuff for myself.
  3. This tactic is something else, it really is. My current save... Nottingham Forest: First season: Win the Championship. Absolute land slide. First season in the PL: Finish 7th and qualify for the Europa Second season in the PL: Finish 5th in the PL and lose in the FA Cup final to Liverpool. Knocked out in the quarters of the EURO to Man City Third season in the PL: Only go and win the thing. And I mean win it by an absolute landslide. There's 3 games left and we're champions. And... We also won the League Cup. 3-0 down at half time to Liverpool, only to take it to 4-4 at full time and win 6-4 in extra time. Knocked out in the quarters of the Euro's to Dortmund. It's ridiculously good. I've done brilliantly in the transfer windows to be fair, I have made some cracking signings, but its all about the tactic. Next season will be tough because I did a lot of rotating. Basically had a PL/FA Cup side with my best players, then a mix of reserves and youth players for the EURO and League Cup.
  4. It's interesting you are switching to a 442. With V2 I am smashing it with Spurs. I win pretty much everything bar one of the FA/League cups. When I play lesser teams I change the defensive midfielder and put a CAM in there. This is only recently, and I just roll over teams. It's the best tactic I've tried on the game by far.
  5. I got promoted in my first season with Forest, won the Championship with V4... Also doing pretty well in the PL, the results are just a bit all over the place. It's definitely better going forward, but a bit bonkers at the back! No real complaints, because we're still overachieving. I just feel V3 was better defensively.
  6. Gone a bit pear shaped with V4 I'm afraid... Switching back to V3!
  7. I'll give it a try now. The tactic is immense defensively! Improving the attack would certainly help the nerves with all these 1-0s
  8. Decent start with Forest with V3... Struggling to score a bit in recent games, often I'm absolutely dominating team and only getting a single goal. I blame that on FM19 though, not the tactic!
  9. It was superb in the first season, but the 2nd season I'm struggling to score. Getting beat or drawing with poor teams, and getting spanked by top 4 sides. Very odd. Improved the team as well.
  10. Anyone else struggling to score in the first half?
  11. Is there a particular tactic you would recommend for the Championship of lower level PL sides? I've tried to use these for Forest in the Championship and I'm getting absolutely dicked. Conceding 3-5 goals a game.
  12. I'm struggling a bit in my Norwich save Knap. Out of all out 4231 tactics which would you recommend the most at the moment? I'm on FM17.3.1.
  13. I tried this for 10 games and even though I seemed to create a lot of chances I also conceded A LOT of goals. More clean cut opportunities for the opposition than I've ever had using the original tactic. No idea why.
