  1. Enrico Santoro, born 33 years ago in Foggia, in the Southern Apulia region in Italy, has spent most of those 33 years utterly obsessed with football. Taken to Foggia matches since very early childhood by his dad, he witnessed the Zemanlandia madness years of ridiculously attacking football taking the town by storm, and was hooked forever. Sadly, Foggia faded post Zeman, and whilst Enrico remained a fierce enthusiast of his local club, the magic went away. Italian football receded into common catenaccio-like stereotypes, which he could already tell he did not identify with, even as a young teenager. He took to coaching since extremely early in his early 20s, managing a multitude of youth football sides throughout Italy, whilst growing more and more identified with foreign influences. Guardiola, Klopp became new idols beyond Zeman - a poster of each the 3 decorates his bedroom -, and he developed a distinct individual footballing philosophy. All that was missing was a chance for him to attempt it on the pitch. Until now. Having made it to the Cremonese youth system recently, the club took notice of the sleek football played by the youth teams led by Enrico. When a vacancy in the senior side became open, it was his golden opportunity as the board took the bold decision to promote him. It's a crazy opportunity. Although quite a lot further North than Enrico's native Foggia, they are a classic club from much the same era, with several appearances in early 1990s Serie A, though never lasting long - their greatest achievement being winning the Anglo-Italian Cup in 1992-1993 after they beat Derby County in Wembley. Cremonese have not been in Serie A since 1996, but are on the rise now. They've gotten promoted from Serie C to Serie B 2 years ago, and have recorded a 14th and a 9th place in the 2 years since. The board are ambitious and want a top 4, with some resources to justify it: a 1M€ transfer budget sounds fairly tasty. But the most important thing about this job is the AMAZING kits and colors. I love it! The next post should focus a bit more on the champagne side of things.
  2. Apparently FM 2020 is just not going to be unable to get this one right. I have not played since the end of December until tonight, though I had been playing and actively giving feedback since beta day 1 till then. I'm 46 and have been playing this game since the very first release of CM and this one has been the most frustrating ME I can remember, maybe because you can see the next level of immersion just over the hill and out of reach. Here is an example of what I have been talking about. (I had to crop it down and record it playing in the media player to get it down from 4K to get under the 9MB limit for the post) It crashed not long after this, first crash I've had in FM 2020 (posted .dmp in bug forums) First off, thank you for continuing to try to improve the ME. Various Match Engine (version 2039) changes including (but not limited to): - Improved one-on-one finishing - Recalculations regarding clear-cut chances - Tweaks to penalty kick conversion rates - Lowered frequency of players overrunning ball and losing possession - Improved realism of player recoveries from slide tackles - Improved crossing variation and instruction behaviour - You're having a laugh on this one mate! - Improved defensive tracking from long balls - Improved heading accuracy - Improvements/tweaks to referee behaviour - Throw-in positional adjustments - Various other balancing tweaks/improvements You know what is crazy? The best I have ever seen FM behavior from these positions was in the very first beta release of 2020! Yet the very first patch changed it and they went back to smashing into the nearest defender. Why???? Look at the acres of space Mo and Trent have to go past and then cross, or drop the shoulder and drive in past them. Never will they do it, never. And then the Inter defender slide tackling his teammate for a corner kick. No words on that. Especially Trent here when he picks the ball up, he's already at pace and the defender just gifts him the space beyond him with his poor initial movement, but oooh nooo Trent is already winding up for a blast, perfectly timed to HIT THE DEFENDER. My 11 year old nephew would've skipped right past that defender having read the space, the speed of everything happening and the options, seriously. This isn't like an bizarre heliacal event that is hard to track down, fire the game up, play with two IF/RMD/IW and tell them to cut inside, or not, to sit narrower, or not, shoot more often, or not, cross more or less, or not, cross low, pre-match talk- cross low, individual personal instructions- cross low, and they will never cross low, or none of the former, and any other combination of instructions (channels, get forward, have a bevvy) and they just continue to blast the ball into the first defender that gets near them. They will even wait until they get close and then smash it into them. I am using Liverpool not only because they are my team IRL (since '96!) but that they are the simply the best team on the planet at the moment. If I was using Rangers or Stuttgart (my other saves) one could use the 'the players just aren't that good' argument. FM 2020 Wide Attack Play.mp4 You can use the slider and go frame by frame since I rerecorded it at 30fps and you can see the defender begin his slide tackle before Salah begins his cross attempt, so Mo should have easily skipped past him. Or, has the game already calculated that Salah will cross and the defender gets the jump on him by being able to 'see the future'?
  3. I’m yet to start a save in FM20 and wanted to know what the best attacking tactics were, particularly to play like Liverpool or Man City but I was going to select Man Utd and was going to make a lot of squad changes anyway. Wanted to use a 4-2-3-1 or 4-1-2-2-1 but wanted to know more on mentalities, player roles, instructions etc. Any advice would be very much appreciated! Thank you in advance!
  4. "I went into the job wanting to make a change," he begins. "When I was appointed, Australia had just been beaten 6-0 twice [by Brazil and France], it was at the lowest ebb. So I thought 'here is an opportunity to really change things'. "So for me the Holy Grail was changing Australian football in the way we play, the way we think about ourselves, the way we develop our players. That was the exciting thing and I took that job thinking: 'What a great opportunity'. "Our best ever generation of players is retiring and a new generation is coming in. To me it was like a four- to eight-year journey in changing the game. "But when it got tight in qualifying I got the sense everyone in the organisation [FFA] forgot what the initial brief was. We just have to qualify for the World Cup. Nothing else matters. It doesn't matter how we play or what comes next. "I said 'No, no, that's not why I took this job'. In the end we delivered anyway, got qualification. And I went off into the sunset because I didn't get what I wanted. I wanted something different. "People are still critical of you because you walked out on something. Well, I felt like I had to walk away if that was all they were interested in." In Ange Postecoglou, the Socceroos had a visionary, a manager who wanted to steer Australian football from a conservative/balanced gameplan to attacking the opponent, constantly pressing them onto the back foot and to score goals with the swagger of a Championship winning side. While we came away from a World Cup 2014 group with 0 points, we employed this brand of football turning 6-0 losses to France and Brazil into enthralling contests with Chile and Holland creating one of the matches of the tournament all based of a system where we were the aggressors. The Asian Cup victory on Home Soil over the course of his tenure was another wonderful example this style and I am a person who plays FM solely thinking about attacking, so for me Postecoglou was everything I've ever wanted in a manager. Today we will bring about his vision of turning Australia from an also-ran to a Major Force on the World Stage. Squad With an eye to 2022 we've begun the process of blending Youth Prospects and removing old guards, creating a side entering the prime of their career come the World Cup. Our biggest strength is our midfield, with our key players sure to be Arzani, Mooy, Rogic and Italiano, creating a strong midfield backed by Adam Taggart up top. Meanwhile Clark will be the heir apparent to Mooy's throne and a vital rotation option. Arzani Mooy Rogic Italiano Taggart Clark Tactics In order to abide by Ange's philosophy, the majority of our tactics will have an attacking bent, control at the minimum, characterised by a hard pressing side, with quick transitions, also capable of playing out from the back. Our primary tactic, with another more Ange inspired system under works. My immediate focus for now is Qualifiers, unlocking the 2022 WC following these philosophies and from there slowly nurturing the next generation of Aussie footballers.
  5. Hello. My name is noikeee, I am a veteran virtual football manager of this forum, and after many adventures in the past, am now back after a Guardiola-style sabbatical of several months, in which I've been silently swallowing my vicious hate for the horrendously frustrating FM19 version of the game taking a break from the game to refresh myself. I am now a recent convert to the delights of FM Touch, where you can just ignore tons of pointless BS in the main game and just play some ****ing football. I've also recently hit the mall and bought a dope jacket. feeling cute, might delete later, idk I am feeling energized, ready to rock and roll and have decided that the perfect spot to get back to FM is a one-club career (at least this is the plan at this stage?) at the place that's dearest to me, the island I've lived my whole life. This would be an island that's worldwide known for its incredible landscapes, its sweet wine, flora and fauna, superb moderate weather awful statues of Cristiano Ronaldo. Football-wise, apart from the legendary talent and ego that is Ronaldo which completely overshadows any other footballing fact from this rock in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, two clubs stand out: Marítimo, the most successful club from the island who I have casually supported all my life, and those arseholes Nacional who are their main rivals, mostly known for a bizarre ultras section of middle aged women and their completely not dodgy at all president. But wait, there is more. You might not have heard about it, but there is a THIRD club from Funchal. I know, shocking, this is a fact that completely flabbergasts people. In fact this club is so unknown that back in 2006, at a particularly difficult time, this dramatic based-in-real-life documentary was shot depicting the life of its last standing fan: We are, of course, talking about CLUBE DE FUTEBOL UNIÃO, better known as União da Madeira. A yo-yo club which has largely been bouncing between divisions 2 and 3 of Portuguese football, it wildly reached the heights of the top tier back between 1989 and 1992, then again between 1993 and 1995, and then, sensationally, 4 years ago in 2015... only to fall back down immediately. And down again. It's back to tier 3 now. Only one piece is missing in this introduction to this career, which I need to hurry because it's bloody late here and I'm badly missing some hours of sleep. My secret weapon, my cunning plan that I've preparing in my basement to take over the world. The tactic that's so evil that actually made me enjoy FM19. I present to you, Champagne Football: The details have been explained in depth in the tactics forum - but basically the idea is to play ridiculously attacking football, with direct penetration coming from the wingers and pacey forward, then supported by lots of central players (3 nominal midfielders + a duo of IWBs) that ensure we get loads of passing options and dominate the centre of the pitch, whilst at the base we are supported by two wide open ball playing CBs, split by a half-back, letting us easily build from the back, starting all the way from the sweeper keeper. It's a funky system that demands loads from every player, as essentially every single player has some sort of dual role to play, which sounds like a horror story for a limited third tier side like this, doubly so given this is a club that was recently known for playing some really dull defensive football. But hey I like challenges, and what better one that to turn this unknown lot into top class entertainers? Actual game play will come some other day as I haven't even looked at my squad yet. Vamos União da Bola!!
