Liverpool FC - An Introduction Having been an FM Handheld/Older versions of FM player since I was a small boy, it's time for me, Elegant Scoop, to dip my feet into a proper in depth Football Manager save. I'm not a noob by any means, but various factors such as school, work, college, socializing etc. have put me off buying and playing the full computer version of the game and spending time developing tactics and all that goes with it. An injury to my right hand has put me out of work for 6 weeks and left me with time to do something, so FM18 it will be. Liverpool FC, a team that I don't support. But, like many others, I love their fans, their style of football, and their love for the game. They've been a great team to watch since Brendan Rodgers took over and his successor Jurgen Klopp has continued this easy on the eye, exciting brand. Elegant Scoop takes over the reigns at the start of the 2017/18 season. His approach mirrors that of his predecessors. Stellar signings such as Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk have been added to a young and exciting squad which is hungry for success. Can the rookie manager take Liverpool to the top? Let's find out...
Hello everyone, I hope the year has started well for you. As the title suggests I am trying to get the best out of Liverpool's Egyptian king Mo Salah. I have seen a few threads which highlight people's struggles with Liverpool's front three and I am wondering if it because they try to get all three scoring 25 goals and assisting 15 times. I want to focus on Salah alone and then build a team around him. Now my aim is to build a tactic loosely based on a couple of Liverpool performances this season. Mainly Man City at home and Bournmouth away (I think it was 4-0). In both games Liverpool scored 4 goals. I would be grateful if anyone can point me in the direction of some good analysis. I got the image from the Bournmouth game. In the image you can see that Salah is the highest player position wise. They looked to overload the Bournmouth left sided fullback and centre back with Salah, Firminho and the Ox. This is from the City game and it is a similar set up. GK Karius often sent the ball up field to bypass the City press. Defence Both CB never really played much but did look to hit the forwards, again to bypass the press. Gomez offered wide support whilst Robertson bombed on. In each match Emre Can acted as the ball winner whilst Geo offered the support/cover and the Ox was the runner. Up front Mane sat deeper and more narrow than Salah who stayed up but not much wider. Mane tracked back more whilst Salah acted as a second striker and an outlet. Firminho just did his thing which is almost impossible to replicate. He is a wonderful player who gives so much. I genuinely feel he would improve any team in world football such is his talent. So that leaves me with the following: I will post the results and analysis after I have played a couple of games.
