  1. 27.mp4 27:20 Corner. dc's Baby and Campbell dont even react to cross. GK could also come out and catch it. 55.12.mp4 55:09 Cross from the left formation has 3 DC's and 1 of them is marking st other ones just standing and looking foolish. 65.24.mp4 65:24 Corner Both dc's Baby and Campbell just watching opposition gets to heading position GK Could also run out. This is only a start. Started looking these to know how gk react in crosses. GK should also be a lot more active interceptin crossballs. 10 min. of looking analysis and found allready these. Newcastle
  2. This maybe better in stupid question thread but will try here. At the minute I have my 2 cb as DCL cb def and DCR bpd def, doing ok but would like them to be doing better, both their attributes are good for their roles, but conceding few too many for my liking. In a previous save I think I had the same 2 but set as DCL cb cover and the DCR bpd def and can't remember if this combination worked better. I don't use a DM in any of my 3 formations and I'm still getting results. I know that a lot is trial and error, but I don't want to throw points away experimenting. Which attributes shou
  3. I propose to analyse every goal conceded over the course of a season in order to master the defensive arts! I'll look at conceded goals focusing on: - Player quality (e.g. defender is out-jumped or out-paced) - Tactics - Set pieces I'm Ajax, playing a 4-3-3,and have a very good squad! Won a quadruple including the CL in 2020, last year I lost to Mourinho in the final Tactics: I leave OIs to my assistant. Goal 1: Home to Vitesse Part 1: (player quality) Zorro wins aerial battle, but heads straight to opposing midf
  4. Believe me or not, the last version of FM I've played prior to FM18 was FM2009. Obviously, a lot has changed since. My specific question here is about tempo. I remember that in "good old times" of FM's early versions, tempo did not affect just the way you attack, but also the way you defend. So when you played with a higher tempo and your team was out of possession, your players would tend to hassle the opposition to a comparatively greater extent even if your mentality and pressing were low. When you wanted to use counter-attacks, you could've done that simply by ticking off the Use Counter A
  5. Hi, this maybe been discussed few times already but I need to know why is this happening a lot of times. Im playing Southampton with a 4-1-2-3 DM Wide formation, standard and flexible mentality, but my main concern is about my team's awful defending structure. My back 4 in this game consists of Bertrand, Yoshida, Van Dijk and Martina. Let me walk you guy through it. - 6 players are closing down Raffael. Those 6 player roles are CD-D, CD-D, FB-A, DM, BBM and AP-S. I don't know if 6 players closing down 1 player is a good thing or not - Martina is marking their left wing/ in
  6. It doesn't matter what I change at the back my defence always plays 6.4s, 6.5s. 6.6s and we get humped every dayum game! Back 4 has 2 fullbacks on defend with standard center backs on defend. 1 DM infront for cover but i'm still conceding SO many goals, normally after we score first!! Any ideas on how to stop the rut?
  7. Hello everyone! To start with - I've been looking for a topic about problems in 4-4-2 tactic, but maybe there's no thread like that, neither here nor another forum. In fact I realise it's not the easiest tactic to use and maybe not even the best one for my team, but now it's more about stubbornness in finding not only problems, but also solutions. To begin with, as you can see on screenshots, my team is more like an asymmetric 4-4-2 than the standard one. I've decided to drop, in this case, Ndidi to DM position beacuse of loads of goals conceding by my team, but in a long term
  8. I am starting to become fed up with FM18. I am in my 4th season with Crystal Palace (My Own Team I Support) and I just can't establish any consistency. I have finished between 9th and 13th every season but playing games are just so frustrating for a number of reasons. No. 1: This one drives me up the wall the most. My players are brutal for conceding within 5-10 minutes after we score a goal, I mean every game. We score a goal within two minutes the other team goes up the pitch on the attack and scores, even though my team has good concentration stats, I can't tell you how many pens I've
  9. I believe that there is a major tactical feature that should be in the future iterations of Football Manager, and that feature is a second tactical screen for the defensive shape/structure of a team, in addition to the typical tactical screen that we currently have today. In real life, teams have a structure, width, and shape that they take up out of possession, often different to their formation in possession. Usually, when a team loses the ball, they try and win the ball back quickly in the spaces. However, when they fail to do so, and the other team recycles possession around the bac
  10. Hi everyone, I'd like to ask a theoretical question. For this application, we are to assume that both teams are completely equal, and that it is only the strategies in play that define the game. With that in mind, if we were to have several strategies play against each other, which ones would come up out on top? I'm talking attacking, defensive, counter, possession, long ball etc. Take for example, attacking football vs possession football, long ball vs counter attack etc. What would win against what and why?
  11. Hi all,I have been playing FM for a few years now, and am confident on my natural instinct when it comes to the attacking phase, even the transition phase. Basically, on the ball, I am confident. Defensively, however, I always feel I lack knowledge, clueless is a strong word, but I could definitely use some help. I've recently started a save with Valencia, and have had a decent start. 0-0 Alaves, 4-1 Bilbao, 4-1 Eibar, and then I came up against Barcelona at the Nou Camp. This is my tactic going into the game; My aim is to play safe on the ball, keeping the ball as we travel up the pitch, a
  12. Hey guys, don't be too harsh to me, new here. I've been playing the game only since 2014, however I've picked the game up relatively quickly I would say, I've won a few good trophies, the prems, the champions cups but I don't consistently win trophies and build teams to the best of their abilities, sometimes I just believe it's almost a fluke. Therefore I've decided to come to the forum on tactics to ask you guys, how do you guys defend best. "Attacking wins you games, defending wins you leagues and trophies" - Sir Alex Ferguson, Like this great man once said, it's true. So h
  13. Hi FMers So I'm in my first season with Saint-Ettiene and I've seen an old pattern emerge with strange heavy defeats where the opposition literally scores every highlight, got so bad I had to sub my keeper, but then the next game the team plays well and wins with a clean sheet. I lost 5-1 to Bastia and 7-0 to Lyon. My tactic is conservative on top of it as it is ultra possession focused. The tactic is a 4-1DM-1-3-1. Is it the asymmetrical formation doing this or is this the worst case simulation just happening at an unfortunate time?
  14. Hey guys was just watching Klopp on MNF and realised the key problem thats been bugging me. My team concedes a lot of goals from set pieces so I switch to a zonal marking system with 2 men on the posts. However, I often lose out to outswinging or deep cross balls that land between the penalty spot and the 6 yard line. I think there should be an option to deal with inswinging and outswinging corners separately (thus giving two footed players a real advantage if they are set piece takers perhaps) rather than left or right. Also Klopp mentioned how he uses 3 defenders on the 6 yard line doi
  15. Hi all, Anyone else having issues since the release patch with conceding a majority of goals from balls humped over the top? Beta was fine and was cruising without any issues. In 12 games i'd only conceded 5 goals. Now i'll be luckily if i don't gift 3 per game! Tried the usual closing down, player deeper, removing offside trap, all literally made now difference. Defending seems to be woeful, after watching the pre release videos with Miles was looking forward to see intelligent football. Just checking if it's just me or if defending is an issue in this current version?
  16. Hi, I have created a tactic for my Liverpool team and just played the first full season. Overall it is not a particularly bad season finishing 6th, however I do think I should be doing much better with the squad I have. The board want me to play possession orientated attacking football which I have achieved. My goals scored record is pretty good with a total of 70. My teams average ratings are pretty impressive throughout however I cannot stop conceding goals and I need a bit of help to point me in the right direction. The following screenshots show that the goals conceded are assist
