  1. Welcome to my first FM Career Update. I've been playing since FM16, I've been a lurker for the past year and now I've decided to make a thread. As you can see, I'll be playing as Southampton FC. I'm not a supporter but I like them as a club and I'm hoping to take them from top half/mid-table safety to one the top teams in England. The Manager Meet Michael King. He worked as a youth team coach for Southampton up until they fired Claude Puel. He was appointed as an interim over the summer, a stop gap until they could find a better option. However, due to his work ethic, smooth talking and knowledge of Ralph Kreuger's darkest secrets, he's secured the full time job much to the world's surprise. He's out of his depth, tactically inept and can't manage a budget for his life. But he'll have to learn. And learn fast. The Budget £30m for transfers but there's some dead weight to be cleared. which will raise funds. ~£1.6m for wages, spending ~£1.5m. 90% of transfer revenue. After some blackmail pleading, this was increased to 100%. The Expectations Top Half Finish Round 6 of the FA Cup. They don't give a **** about the Carabao Cup. Neither does King. The Objectives Improve squad depth. Make Southampton one of England's biggest clubs a good few year down the line. At the risk of sounding like Louis Van Gaal, it is a process. And one that'll take time. Try not to get exposed as a fraud.
  2. Hello from Greece. This tactic was created when I got a proposition from Southampton, after my 2,5 years trip with (full of depts.) Panathinaikos. The main shape is 3-2-2-1-2. The Team instructions As you can see both WB's and MCR are in automatic role. This is because it helps very much when I make changes to the tactic, during the game. Example. If during the game you win 1-0 and you just want to secure it, set mentality to Counter or defensive, low tempo, Team Shape Structured, defense line deeper, More direct passing and turn on Pass into space. Automatically both WB's and MCR are on defense duties. That's it the game is over. Opposite, if you are back to the score, set defense line Slightly Higher, turn on Offiside Trap, Higher tempo and Attacking Team Instructions.

  3. Has anyone had any success with this Southampton striker? He can play left/right attacking midfield as well, on paper his stats look OK (and somehow hes valued around $30M). Just trying to see if anyone has tips on how to use him properly in a starting 11. I'm currently using a 4-2-3-1 with good success, but his overall match rating is at 6.45. Usually playing him as a lone advanced forward. I've tried to put him on one of the wings as a winger or inside forward, but he still doesn't seem to work any magic. I attached a screenshot below of his stats and whatnot. It doesn't show his tactics; but they are, shoots from distance, shoots with power, tries long ranged free kicks, cuts inside from right wing. Any insight/tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  4. ★★★Welcome to the FM17 Southampton FC Thread ★★★ Southampton FC club logo - Nicknamed The Saints, they currently play their football in England's top tier. ★Introduction★ The Saints experienced yet another summer of upheaval and change ahead of their 2016/17 season in the Premier League. It is now the third successive season that departures of key players and managers have hampered preparations ahead of a new campaign, and while the Liebherr family, Ralph Krueger and Les Reed have answered critics in the past many will begin to wonder whether this is the season the Saints will feel the strain Southampton finished the 15/16 season with a highest ever league position finish & securing European football at St. Marys for next season. A fantastic season lading in 6th place and ending just 3 points away from securing Champions League football. Despite this, it was not enough to keep hold of manager Ronald Koeman who moved to an under performing Everton team, along with key players Sadio Mane, Victor Wanyama & Graziano Pelle moving on to pastures new. Enter center stage, Claude Puel. The new manager is somewhat an unknown quantity in England, but having had success in Ligue 1 in France with spells at Lyon & Monaco and more recently having taken Nice into Europe by playing some of the most attractive football in the league, he certainly has the CV to back his new position. Getting the best of Hatem Ben Arfa is no small feat in itself. Balancing the demands of domestic and European football will not be straightforward and Southampton will not want to spread themselves too thin. The combination of a new manager, a heavy workload and rivals hoping to overtake them presents them with a daunting challenge; simply standing still would be a fine achievement. But do not be shocked if the Saints surprise again! ★Who Are Southampton?★ Southampton Football Club are a professional club based in the city of Southampton, Hampshire and compete in the top flight of English football, the Premier League. Nicknamed the Saints, they play their home games at St Mary's Stadium, before which they were based at The Dell. In 2001 the move from the Dell to the new St Mary's Stadium was something of a spiritual homecoming for Southampton Football Club. The club has won the FA Cup once in 1976 and its highest ever league finish was in the old First Division, finishing second place in 1983/84. The Saints were relegated from the Premier League in 2005 ending 27 successive seasons of top flight football for the club. Led by the Liebherr family with club legend Markus Liebherr at the helm, the owners appointed an ex Scunthorpe physio as manager who led the club to successive promotions and back into the Premier league after a 7 years absence. Markus Liebherr rescued Southampton from financial ruin. Markus sadly passed away August 2010. The time away from the Premier League was arguably the most difficult in Southampton's history. Riddled with financial mis-management the club plummeted to the depths of League One with a -10 point penalty. Thanks to the generosity and love of the Liebherr family, a world renowned youth academy responsible for producing the likes of Gareth Bale, The Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain & Adam Lallana to name a few and the appointment of Nigel Adkins as a manager the club eventually climbed back to the Premier League. ★History★ The team that play in red and white today can trace their roots back to the club formed in 1885 by members of St. Mary's Church Young Men's association who played their football on the banks of the Itchen for 13 years before moving on. Originally called Southampton St. Mary's, the club joined the Southern League in 1894 and won the championship for three years running between 1897 and 1899 and again in 1901, 1903 and 1904. That success spanned some major changes for the Saints as they moved to a newly built £10,000 stadium called The Dell in 1898. Although they would spend the next 103 years there, the future was far from certain in those early days and the club had to rent the premises first before they could stump up the cash to buy the stadium outright in the early part of the next century. The dream of Division 1 football at The Dell for the first time was finally realised in 1966 when Ted Bates' team were promoted as runners-up. It was a never-to-be-forgotten achievement. The most memorable day in Southampton Football Club's history came in 1976 when the Second Division side, managed by Lawrie McMenemy, won the FA Cup for the first time with a sensational 1-0 victory at Wembley over odds-on favourites Manchester United. In 1978 Saints gained promotion back to Division 1 and a year later they were back at Wembley, losing 3-2 to Nottingham Forest in the League Cup Final. Alan Ball was in the Saints team, one of several star names to join the club. The signing of Kevin Keegan, twice European Footballer of the Year, from Hamburg, was a masterstroke by McMenemy, a move which stunned the football world and one that was followed in the 1983/84 season by the most successful campaign in the club's history. With the great Peter Shilton in goal they finished runners-up to Liverpool in the league and reached the FA Cup semi-finals, losing to Everton in extra time. Saints emerged as one of the country's most entertaining teams as second top scorers in the First Division with 71 strikes in their goals for column. Matthew Le Tissier, 24-goal leading scorer, was named PFA Young Player of the Year with strike partner Rodney Wallace in second place. Matthew Le Tissier scored over 100 goals for The Saints. He now works as a TV Pundit for Sky Sports News A turbulent start to the 21st century meant manager Harry Redknapp was unable to halt the decline despite bringing in five new players during the January transfer window and, after a 27-year stay in the top flight, Saints were relegated on the final day of the 2004/05 season. They lost 2-1 at home to Manchester United to finish bottom of the Premier League. The Club was virtually on its knees as administration lingered over Saints for the early part of the summer in 2009. The positive news that everyone had been waiting for finally arrived however, when Nicola Cortese, a man who had built his reputation in Swiss finance, introduced German businessman Markus Liebherr to the idea of buying the Club. The Saints were launched upwards securing successive promotions back the Premier League where they remain today.
  5. Hi, I've only recently got into FM17 - I played FM09 quite a lot and then they changed the tactics system and I never really had the time to learn about how it worked and was put off the game because of that. But now, with a bit more time for the game, I've had a couple of practice games to learn about the player roles and TIs. Now with Southampton, I'm at the beginning of November in my first season. I'm 9th in the league with a w-d-l record of 3-5-2. I had consecutive 0-0 draws with Middlesbrough (A) and Palace (H) which I really should have won (missing a last minute penalty vs Palace)! Funnily enough, 2 of my 3 wins cam against Liverpool (A) and Chelsea (H). I'm well placed to qualify from my Europa League group with 7 points from 4 games. But I digress. I've noticed even since pre-season that Van Dijk has not been totally on board when it comes to team talks. Quite often the feedback is either "none" or "didn't seem to be listening". His morale is good, and it says he is happy the team is playing well and is buoyed by our chances in the Europa League, but I'm sure come January he'll want to leave. There is major interest from Chelsea, Man Utd and Real Madrid, and minor interest from Man City. I was really hoping to have a successful enough season to convince him to stay, but I fear that he may want to leave before that, and so I'm looking for a replacement so I'm fully prepared. Currently in the crosshairs are: Phil Jones (though he's getting good playing time under Mourinho at United who've played 10, won 10). Michael Keane (though his vision attribute lets him down) Hoeft (Dutch defender from Lazio, about 24 years old and seems solid enough with room to improve). Could anyone recommend any other potential targets? It's worth noting that I signed Gary Cahill in the summer window as Yoshida just isn't good enough, and I also have a club philosophy to buy young and give youth a chance - Jack Stephens is on loan at Rangers but the media keep asking if he's being challenged enough there so I may have to recall him and send him on another loan. I don't think he's quite ready for a place on the bench yet.
  6. Here's my formation, roles and main squad: southampton Here's my team instruction: instructions So guys, i'm into my third season with Southampton, so far so good, i won PL+FA Cup on my first year, and i won all of the trophies (5) on the second season including CL, and my squad is based on 17.3.1 update so yeah there's Gabbiadini and i also managed to get Gary Cahill and Moussa Dembele (Frenchman striker not the Belgian midfielder) on my first season so there's maybe not too much changes on my Soton squad. And i've been playing with 2 tactics (the other one is 424 Wide with Winger) and 4123 (Inside forwards) being my main tactic, well i'm wondering if there's any advice or tips which can be applied to my 4123 tactic since it's sometimes inconsistent with chances (too much long shots, and struggling when facing defensive team) I've succeeded (luckily) on winning trophies but i don't believe in "dont fix it if it isn't broken", i believe that changes are needed to be made because i won't spend big on transfer windows like other PL clubs so i'm looking for any "tweaks" which maybe can help my tactic becomes more effective in the next season. Here's my result from the past 2 seasons My first season: 30W 4D 3L 72 goals 10 conceded. My 2nd season: 2nd season table I'd like to play possession+attacking football but also taking caution in the defending because i really avoid being conceded more than any teams on the table . And somehow i really need those advice from more experienced FM player like you guys because i just love to learn something "new" about the game and also if there is any tactical principality that maybe i've quite misunderstood on this game because i need to maximize the effectiveness of my tactic and my players. Are there: any player roles needed to be changed? team instruction to add/remove? any player instruction to add? or any of your insight on how to improve this tactic! Thank you
  7. Playing southampton, i started 5 or 6 times which all of them failed. I win 1 in 5 games, others are all loss or tie. I am trying 4-1-4-1 formation or 4-3-3DM formation all the time. I want to play 4-1-4-1 formation because i have a decent dm - Victor Wanyama also i think it will bring some defensive solidity as southampton dc's are not very good. For left wing i have tadic decent winger attributes but low decisions. For right wing, i have Mane, good attacker but lack teamplay and passing ability. For that reason i came up a tactic like this: DLF(s) W(s) Cm(a) Dlp(s) Wm(a) BWM(d) FB(s) DC DC WB(s) I play standard mentality with flexible team shape. I use play out of defence instruction and sometimes work ball into box. No other tis. For PI's, i duplicated If's instructions to wm(a) with cut inside with the ball. Cm(a) has shorter passing pi and dlf has move into channels. However system doesnt work. My obsevations are; first of all w(s) stays wide and seems disconnected from the team. He grabs the ball run wide try to dribble and lose it. Cm(a) i play with stephen davis who has 8 finishing and cant finish the chances although he surges into the box. I tried changing w(s) to wm(s) and fb to wb(a) but still hardly find any goals and concede 2 or 3 even from low league teams. As for cm attack role i dont have budget to bring better player since im lacking a dc, dr already. I am stuck with the this tactic and team. I dont know what to do in order to get better with this. Any help appreciated.
