Has anyone tried this tactic with a positive mentality? It seems to be working rather odd, one game you could win against the best opponents and then end up drawing/losing while dominating the whole game. I've noticed that playing a higher temp game in any attacking formation or tactic DOESN'T work very well and in real life you'd expect top teams to have a good tempo to keep attacking with flair and put the opposition on the back foot. Im playing wide, short passing, run at defence, expressive, work ball into the box. The cm's are useless in creating chances and doesn't help with the wide players at all coming inside or even going into the box. Adv playmaker in attack and a BBM with instructions to go higher up still doesn't have the effect. I'm with manchester united and not even pogba can create, find this annoying considering 4-1-2-3 fits his system and the teams overall structure. Any help with this please??
Hi all, I've picked up FM for the first time in almost a decade and am adapting to everything that's new in the last nine years. Historically, I've always had a preference for wingers crossing from the byline on both sides. What sort of formations work best for this in FM17? I was planning on a wide 4-2-3-1, but to get wingers that advanced I have to place them both on attack duty, and to have a couple people actually getting on the end of crosses I need both the FC and the AMC on attack too. But everyone seems to say its a mistake to have all your attackers on attack duty, so I don't know how best to deal with this. I've noticed that hardly any tactics use wingers. Can wingers on both sides even work in the modern game?
At the beginning of every season, or any other time that I had a lot of turnover or tactical change, I would set team training to focus on tactics, assuming this would help them gel within the system. However, I recently read that doing this doesn't actually improve your squad's familiarity with your formation or instructions, but simply grows their attributes dealing with such (decisions, team work, etc.), essentially creating another middle step between your actions and the end result. It would be nice if FM could add some sort of training that actually directly influences your club's immediate tactical familiarity, just like coaches will have players use a particular formation or instruction in practice scrimmages behind closed doors. I know you can improve these things through implementing your changes in friendlies, but if I switch from a 3-5-2 to a 4-3-3 and sign 5 players, for example, I don't want to waste time training their general inclinations when I should be able to give them specific experience with the details of our system before they ever step on the pitch at all.
Hi all, I am new to the forum. Looking forward to getting involved. I have rekindled my love for FM with the latest version. I am just looking to gain peoples thoughts on what are the best combinations of instructions relating to the tactics. Now I know It varies dependent on your players at your disposable. But generally what sort of general combinations do you go for? Personally at the minute I am trying to crack my Newcastle team tactic with very mixed results i.e 6-1 win to a 2-0 loss. I am using a high tempo, possession , 442. Ideally I would like to use a 4-5-1. but every time I use the formation i lose. I hope this makes sense. If it does or doesn't reply anyway.
