  1. Hello guys, so I have been using a tactic by Eusebio which I downloaded fmscout website. The attack has been quite reliable but defense keeps me quite disappointed as I have to struggle in matches even where I scored 4-5 goals or even suffer defeat Here is my tactic: And here are the instructions : Please suggest the changes so that my defense can also become reliable. Thanks !
  2. A (hopefully) simple question for more experienced FM players: does the term defensive block (primarily) relates merely to the position (depth) of d-line or to the space between the lines in the defensive phase (i.e. when out of possession)? In other words, can a low block be applied when you play with a higher d-line or only when it's deep(er)? And vice versa, high block with a deeper d-line? For example, if your back line is positioned higher up the pitch and your next (midfield) line is fairly close to the d-line, so that there is very little space between these two lines, is that a low or high block (or medium for that matter)? And finally, can you play a low block with a more offensive mentality, and conversely - a high block with a defensive mentality?
  3. After looking at a team's strengths and weaknesses, the next step is creating a tactic. Most, if not all guides stress the need for balance between attacking and defensive roles. What I'm unsure of is: which areas must one position defensive roles in, so that the more attacking roles have adequate cover? Here's some examples: I have a strong LB who can contribute to the attack. Is a simple Covering CB enough to protect me on that side, or must I employ the best ball-winner the club has in the midfield, on the left side? On the other side of the team, I have a fast winger. Would a conservative full back be sufficient protection, considering that in the midfield, there is likely to be a Mezzala? The tentative midfield makeup would be; MEZ-CM-D and an AP in front. However, which side should the central midfielders take?
  4. Hello, I have already managed three or four different teams with medium and higher expectations both in SkyBet Championship and in Scotland premiership. Every time same results, defenders wander like idiots in the pitch, while my forwards even if strong like Mitrovic or Angulo at Sunderland can't hit the target even if with no GK in front of them. Any tip on how to cure this guys? 4 stars coaches always in my staff. we have more o less the top coaches everytime!
  5. I note with disappointment, although the game I like it a lot and there have been many improvements, which continues to persist a mistake of the Match Engine, about positioning on the defense, especially in the movements to follow the actions of the opposing attack. When the attackers take ball, especially for actions with direct or long passages, in which attackers snap into ball range, defenders can't keep the correct positions. Sometimes you see 4 opponents enter everyone in the area, ready to shot on goal the cross coming in, and the defensive line positioned all the way to the player who must cross, maybe already well marked. This leaves the other players only.
  6. I am playing FM18 beta for Manchester United. In Super Cup vs Real Madrid I tried to be solid at the back, but it didn't work - I conceded 19 shots (7 on target), while my team only managed 7 shots (4 on target). I tried save/load multiple times with different tactics and every time they manage almost 20 shots. The possession is always ~30% for me and ~70% Real. Any advice on how to keep Real to fewer shots is appreciated. I would love to emulate real life Mourinho and string of clean sheets. I tried these two tactics, both pretty much same result. I tried moving mentality between Counter and Standard. I tried changing team shape from fluid to flexible to structured. Any ideas appreciated! Here is the analysis from the game played mostly with first tactics. I actually won 1-0 but didn't like how it went.
  7. Current setup GK-d: Distribute to defenders WB-a: Cross more often, run wide with ball, more direct passes CD-d: Pass it shorter CD-d: Pass it shorter WB-a: Cross more often, dribble less, more direct passes CM-d: Pass it shorter, close down less CM-s: Pass it shorter, close down less AM-a AP-a: Roam from position, move into channels AM-a: Get further forward CF-s: Move into channels, roam from position Thoughts behind team instructions: Play out of defense: maintain possession, although with my defenders' tendency to panic when trapped and pass it straight to the opposition, I'm thinking of removing that Lower tempo: relic from season's past when I saw passes go everywhere Float crosses/early crosses: forwards are great jumpers with high anticipation Expressive/roam from positions: goes hand-in-hand with very fluid - want my players to move around into open spaces and give them the freedom to create chances. Once I went to these instructions, scoring improved drastically Shorter passing: maintain possession I got my fluidity and team instructions through a bit of trial and error. I went with this one game and it worked, so I stuck with it. This past season was my most successful to date, finishing 4th in the EPL. I was second in the league in goals with 85 but was tied for 13th in goals allowed with 64. While most of the time I was scoring enough for it not to matter, I never felt comfortable with a two-goal lead and when I wasn't scoring, I rarely scraped out 1-0 wins. My tactical knowledge is decent but far from thorough and I lack the ability to diagnose what is and isn't working to adjust in-game to make a difference. It seems like I gave up a bunch of goals on crosses, defenders getting pulled out of position, and a ton of stupid mistakes (wildly sending the ball from the corner into the center of the pitch, right to an opposing player is one of our favorite moves). I realize this is a top-heavy, attacking formation, but are there any adjustments -- through team or individual instructions -- I could make so that it was more solid defensively? Changing formations probably isn't in the cards as I have no (good) wide players on the roster. I've experimented using supporting roles in the AMC strata but it hasn't seemed to make any difference defensively. I've used two CM-d's before, but it seems to create a big gap between them and the AMCs. And I'm in the market for better defenders but I seem to have as good as I'm going to get considering I don't have a ton of money to spend on world-class talent.
  8. I play a 4-2-3-1 wide. I set my defensive line to drop deeper, so I'm not sure why I still keep getting beat over the top by long balls. My mentality is standard, both fullbacks automatic and defenders set on defend. Do I need to make one of them cover? Also, Danilo, my right back, keeps getting burned on through balls even though I tell him to mark tighter and mark specifically. I do the same for Luke Shaw, my left back, and Rugani, my center back. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, any help would be greatly appreciated!
