  2. Hello FM fans and readers, i am from India and Manchester United die hard fan.. Hereby without taking much time, i am starting my personal FM19 journey... I hope you will enjoy it and also hope you will guide me to play to the best of my capabilities... Ok so i am starting with my favourite club Manchester United, season 2018-19. I had attached image of my Summer transfer deals, i desperately wanted to sell Sanchez, Mata, Fellaini, Smalling, Matic, Valencia, Darmian and Rojo, however i succeeded only in selling Sanchez and Darmian for 37M pound raising to 45.5M and 10.25M pound respectively. Dalot, Fred and Grant were already bought before i joined the game, and then i was succeeded in buying Alex Grimaldo for 32.5M and Hirving Lozano for 24.5M who both went straight into my first team plan, Grimaldo as LB and Hirving Lozano as RW (although his 1st preference is LW, but i have Martial and Rashford for LW, so have to play Lozano as RW, hopefully he will learn this position). Also bought Joao Felix, whom i sent back on loan for 1 year as part of transfer deal. Also bought few other young talented players, however few other didnt joined me who were not interested in Man Utd. This is my first season and learnt few tricks of not buying a players for high price, esp those players who are extremely interested in joining Man Utd, which i will implement in next transfer.... Also i sold Valencia to some chinese club for 7M, but that deal will go in winter transfer season, so till than he will play with us. Some players which i must target now is RW (1st choice is Federico Chiesa and 2nd is Christian Pulisic) as well as RB (1st choice as Joshua Kimmich or 2nd choice as Benjamin Henrichs as he can play both as RB and LB).
  3. I've started a career as manager of Man Utd but I've noticed my Reserve team are not doing so well. I understand that they will mirror my first team tactics (which are working well for my first team) yet the Reserves are almost bottom of their league. Has anyone else noticed this as this isn't the first save I have had where this has been an issue? At a club like Utd you'd think the Reserves would be doing well. I've even allowed some of my first team squad to play for them but the results still aren't what you would expect. Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Welcome to my first real tactic thread! Although Manchester United are my favourite team, I've always found that I need some sort of theme or tactical idea to work towards to stick with a save past about 6 months. Last year I decided to finally embrace the Target Man in a 433, so this year I was looking for something different. 442 was the go-to for one of United's biggest periods of dominance (1993-2001), and one of the best teams of recent years that I haven't seen a replication of was Leonardo Jardim's title-winning Monaco team, who also played a 442. An article positing Jardim as the next manager of Manchester United was enough to get me to work. Sources http://outsideoftheboot.com/2017/09/19/tactical-philosophy-leonardo-jardim/ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2017/05/03/four-simple-tactics-monaco-do-exceptionally/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPnDLpaDUWc&t=4s https://thebusbybabe.sbnation.com/2018/11/30/18120032/the-next-manager-of-manchester-united-leonardo-jardim This is the line-up I'm basing my recreation on: From the sources listed I came up with these ideas to aim for in my tactic: - Out of possession using quite a tight marking scheme, defending narrowly, with CMs sometimes even dropping on to the opposition strikers. - Falcao's off the ball movement being key, opening up space for Mbappe who roams around picking up the ball to run at defenders. - Wingers often being quite narrow in the build-up, with very offensive full backs willing to get forward on the outside (or occasionally inside) - CMs taking it turns to get forward, and in the build-up one dropping into defence to bring the ball forward. - A willingness to recycle possession in defence until space opens up for a long diagonal to start an attack. - A focus on set pieces: in the first four games of 2017-18 they scored 14 goals, 10 from set pieces. The Tactic The wide roles I was uncertain about and the in the end I just looked at Bernardo Silva and Thomas Lemar on the game and concluded that Wide Playmaker and Winger with players given similar traits would be the best way to replicate them. Likewise with the CMs I considered one HB and one SV, or one DLP and one BBM, before settling on two SVs and relying on the intelligence of my expensively acquired midfielders to sort it out amongst themselves. I try to have only one of Pogba and Gedson Fernandes on the field at the same time as they both have the "Gets Into Opposition Area" trait. The duty of the full backs was another issue - At was too offensive, Su too defensive so I settled on Su with Overlap to get a mentality approximately halfway between the two. The CDs are given personalised instructions - the combos tend to be BPD-De - BPD-Co, BPD-De-BPD-St, BPD-Co-BPD-St or BPD-De-BPD-De. I'm not promising this will work with every team, I've spent £400m over three transfer windows but the results were good - Premier League and Champions League winners in the first season despite missing Alexis Sanchez for 6 months. Early season 2 this is the squad: Player Traits In preparation for this tactic I loaded up my research save (All leagues loaded, large database, no attribute masking, will never press continue as it will kill my laptop) and got all of the XI from the Tifo Football graphic at the top's traits and footedness. I'd try to mould my players towards these archetypes, but make exceptions (not that keen on all of Fabinho and Bakayoko's traits, and I like to have a spare CM with no traits and a versatile wide player with traits applicable to both RM and LM). Bold are the ones I think are essential. GK (Subasic): none RB (Sidibe): Runs With Ball Down Right / Gets Forward Whenever Possible / Plays One-Twos / Knocks Ball Past Opponent CB (Glik): Marks Opponent Tightly / Dives Into Tackles / Runs With Ball Rarely CB (Jemerson): Marks Opponent Tightly / Tries To Play Way Out Of Trouble LB (Mendy): Runs With Ball Down Left / Gets Forward Whenever Possible / Plays One-Twos / Avoids Using Weaker Foot RM (Bernardo Silva): Gets Into Opposition Area / Comes Deep To Get Ball / Dictates Tempo / Tries To Play Way Out Of Trouble / Dives Into Tackles / Cuts Inside From Both Wings / Runs With Ball Often RCM (Fabinho): Gets Into Opposition Area / Plays One-Twos / Knocks Ball Past Opponent / Tries To Play Way Out Of Trouble / Tries Long Range Passes LCM (Bakayoko): Plays Short Simple Passes / Shoots With Power / Does Not Dive Into Tackles LM (Lemar): Gets Into Opposition Area / Shoots From Distance / Curls Ball / Cuts Inside From Both Wings / Runs With Ball Often RST (Falcao): Places Shots / Curls Ball / Attempts Overhead Kicks / Tries First Time Shots LST (Mbappe): Curls Ball / Cuts Inside From Both Wings / Runs With Ball Often Set Pieces Credit where credit's due: I don't make my own set pieces because whilst I enjoy scoring off them I don't enjoy thinking about them much. I use these setups, adapted to my own players: https://strikerless.com/2018/11/05/corner-kicks-in-fm19/ https://strikerless.com/2018/11/19/defending-corners-and-other-set-pieces/ The long throw setup posted on that site is also really good, but I simply don't have anyone good at taking them. I can't access the set piece stats from the first season, but in the current season we've scored 28 goals in 9 games, 4 from Corners, 3 from Direct Free Kicks and 1 from an Indirect Free kick. The total is likely higher than the stats show, given I don't think it counts as a goal from a corner if it isn't literally the first touch off the corner that goes in (i.e. if someone heads the corner back across goal for a team-mate to finish it doesn't count as a corner goal). Save Progress For the attempt with this tactic before I broke my laptop and the ME was updated, as well as any extras I posted check out the Manchester United team thread. But I'll link my season summaries here so people can see how the tactic has worked out. Season 1 Season 2
  5. Has anyone been able to create a tactic yet that mimics how Utd are now playing under Solskjaer, there has been a bit more of a sample size in terms of games so interested to see what wiser minds from this forum's take on it. Also would be interested if anyone has come up with what you might call a "tradition Man Utd" tactic. Solskjaer coming back into the club has led to a lot of comments about Utd being back playing in their traditional manner with Gary Neville saying "No one should ever be allowed to enter Manchester United Football Club ever again and adopt a different philosophy to the one the club has." I would class Utd's tradition as quick/fast attacking play with wingers and width played by younger players with flair and no fear. Perhaps the classic Utd tactic and the Solskjaer tactic are one in the same but I would always associate Classic Utd with a 442, flying wingers and attacking full backs. It would have a striker that drops off the front ala Cantona/Yorke/Sheringham. Where's Ole's tactic is a 433 with Lingard roaming on the right, Matrial cutting inside on the left, width being provided by the full backs and Pogba given a lot of licence to get forward from centre midfield. Anyway enough of me rambling on, has anyone been able to create anything such as the above? If so, could you share or direct me to where i can see it? (I'm sure that if anyone has created something similar, then they will want to create/or will have already create a thread of their own)
  6. Hi! So I've just started a new save with my team, United. Was given £90 million which is a decent amount but not amazing in terms of buying quality players. So my main goal was signing young players on cheap deals and improving overall squad depth, as I know the injuries are quite frankly overkill in this game. But I need some help in regards to how I set up my squad, I wanna try a 4-1-2-3, with one holding midfielder there to provide cover for the attacking left back, Shaw or Tierney. However most of my players are box to box midfielders and/or playmakers, which perhaps suits a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1. My right wing options aren't great, Jesse Lingard and Jesus Corona being the two natural ones, Sanchez might play there, but I wanna use Martial on the left a lot, as an Inside Forward on Attack Duty. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any good CB options, so I'm stuck with the current five, three of which are incredibly injury prone and another is Smalling. I like a CD (S) with a BPD (C) combination, reminiscent of Vidic and Ferdinand respectively. In the last few years I've always favoured direct wing play, but with a previous save that got yeeted, the approach was very inconsistent, and my midfielders, unless they scored, got **** poor ratings for some reason, as well as one of my two fullbacks getting a 6.2 more often than not. Feel like I wanna use the playmaking abilities of the likes of Pogba, Bentancur etc. (Mata was shocking in the previous save and I kinda intend to sell him on for some money) in the midfield, to play balls over the top to guys like Martial, Rashford, Sanchez etc. Perhaps Lingard as a 10 could work, with Pogba as the Mezzala, Bentancur as the deep playmaker, and someone like Fred or Herrera being the box to box. So yeah, what roles, formations and tactical approaches would you recommend? Cheers xo
  7. I want to recreate these three tactics from the 07/08 season, but I struggle with tactical knowledge so I need some help. Tactical analysis Cheers! P.S. If someone has created all three of the tactics, a link is appreciated
