  1. I am currently managing Harrogate Town in FM19 in the Vanarama National League. I have tried multiple tactics which includes my own 'Wings Of The Pheonix' tactic which had great results with Barcelona and even with Harrogate in Pre-Season but as soon as the season started, the team stopped scoring goals and the match went like there was no goal in the first half and then in the second half my team scores a goal and then either the opponents score a goal or my team doesn't score any more goal and it is never certain if my team will win the match or not. Now I know that it can happen in 2 to 3 matches but it has happened in each and every of the 16 games played so far irrespective of the opponent be it the worst team (York) or the best (Crewe). After this happened for a couple of matches, I decided to use a downloaded tactic by Total Football Fan (TFF) which was the 'TFF Conqueror' and still got the same results. I don't know if it some bug or is it my team. I must tell you that my team dominates every game as it takes 17 shots on avg. Per match and most of them being on target with my own tactic and even with the downloaded tactic however the strikers just don't seem to be hitting the shots towards goal or something. Any Hints or help will be appreciated. Thanks.
  2. Into my 5th season with Young Boys and each season a reoccurring issue is that I’ve had the issue of not converting enough touches into goals (see the picture attached) - 195 touches and only 4 goals seems crazy! I play a 4-2-3-1 tika taka style where I dominate possession (see picture attached) Can anyone help in addressing this issue? I have changed training in the past in terms of adding in more chance creation and conversion but doesn’t seem to have that much effect    Thanks!
  3. I've just sold my top scorer for big bucks and his replacement is a hot prospect with some pretty good physicals (which makes him very well suited to Northern Ireland, where I'm currently playing). The only problem is that I've just realised that this new striker has the 'Static Target Man' PPM and I'm not 100% sure what this does! From what I've read, it's sort of a goal hanger style PPM which wouldn't be too bad, but other sources have suggested that it also reduces the chances of the player running onto balls as they prefer the ball to be played to feet. If the latter is the case, it is a big problem as my tactic does rely on a striker who's a sort of Jermaine Defoe style player; an out-and-out striker who's willing to run onto through balls and loose balls. Will this PPM make this player unsuited to the role I want him to fulfil? If yes, is it easy to train a player out of this PPM?
  4. Hello again guys, This time I'm here to share with you my recent video! My comparison between Paulo Dybala and Mauro icardi!Tell me your feedback! In your opinion who is the best???How many goals did these 2 wonder players score on your saves???For what type of football would you pick Dybala and for what type would you pick Icardi???Please show me their stats on your saves
  5. So I decided to give cleon's 3-5-2 a go with Blackburn, as I struggle to come up with ideas on my own - and the tactic suited my players really well. However, from scoring lots of goals the first few games - my strikers are now refusing to score goals. Even though I have won all 9 games in the league so far. Headers from 2ft out, 1 on 1 with the gk etc. I just can't understand what's wrong. If they never got any chances, I would understand - but it's several chances per game. And the finishes aren't even close. Dunno where to start to analyze what's wrong!? Is it confidence, do I need to talk to them? They are usually nervous in-game, and telling them to calm down or "no pressure" doesn't seem to help at all. Or is it most likely tactical, and me not spotting something wrong in-game? I mean, even I could've scored some of these chances...
  6. I've got a 19 year old striker who was scoring for fun earlier in the season but since January he has only scored 2 in 10 and seems to fluff all his chances. I've tried talking to him and he's said he'll try to pick things up in he next few games but hasn't scored in the last 3. He didn't even score when we won 5-0 and even the left back scored there! Is there any way to get around this? Also, will this bad form carry over into next season? I don't want to replace him due to his potential, but I'm going up to the SPL next season and I can't afford to have a misfiring striker up front!
  7. Hello, I've found a boring issue throug all my seasons in FM 2018... sometimes the team refuse to score! It doesn't matter the quality of your striker or midfielders, simply my team will hit posts, crossbars, goalkeepers, defenders, or put the ball out... Last season I had a wonderfull 4.3.3 tactic with all the three forwards scoring 25 goals each but we failed to win the Serie A because against some lower level opponents we lost 0-1 and in all of these matches we shot 30 times!!!! What to do in that situations? I tried both to reduce speed of game, change tactic, --- same result!! no scoring......... and no titles yet!! PS: similar rubbish situation in europa league.... won 3-0 at home, went away to match hibs and lost 5-0 !!!!! as usual....
  8. Hi guys, I was just wondering what success people have had with different striker combinations. For example I've found so far that a target man/poacher combination works quite well for me. Most recently been using defensive forward/complete forward for my first season in the prem, and that at times worked pretty good. Is there a combination that has worked wonders for anyone? I usually play and advanced playmaker in the AMC position behind the front 2 also.
  9. Hello everyone. After a few months of experimenting my way around 3-at the back tactics, I might finally have stumbled upon the motherlode. An attacking 3-4-3 which guarantees goals. For my team, I chose Borussia Monchengladbach, as I felt they had the right players for the formation, and also were in the Champions League, where I can test it out against the very best. So without further ado, here it is. THE ALBATROSS 3-4-3 Why this name? The formation when in place does look like the bird in full flight, hovering with its wings spread to full length. (An Albatross has the highest wing-span of any bird) So here is the formation, and the team instructions of the tactic as well. Formation: Team Instructions: We have gone with the control strategy as we aim to dominate the play, and let the opponents adapt to our style rather than us to theirs. I've always been a fan of attacking football which looks good on the eye (No wonder I'm a Netherlands supporter), and I feel this is the strategy which suits me, and this formation the best. We've gone with fluid as we expect that little more from each player, with the wingers tracking back and helping in the defensive phase, as well as the strikers moving wide when necessary, with the midfielders pushing up and dropping back in a fluid manner, didn't go for very fluid as I felt it would complicate too many things, as well as Fluid was working very well. Player Roles: GK: Just your standard Goalkeeper. (Sommer, Patricio, Lloris, Jefferson etc) RCB and LCB: CD -Defend. Pace is definitely a factor here. Anything less than 13 acceleration and pace will struggle, as Vestergaard did for my Gladbach team at LCB, before he was dropped and eventually sold off in January. Pacey centre-backs who are alright on the ball will do a good job. [12+ passing] (Elvedi, Wimmer, Romagnoli, Rudiger, Dier etc) CB: BPD- Stopper. This guy needs to be strong in the air, so definitely check for jumping and height, as he would push up from his defensive line to win headers from opposition goal kicks. Decisions is another key stat, as he should realise when and when not to leave his deep position. You could change the role from Stopper to Defend if your opposition has a very fast striker and your CB can risk being caught out due to the sheer pace. And as this guy will spread the play out to your wingers when such an option exists, he should also be decent on the ball. (Christensen, Hoedt, Alderweireld, Koscielny, Musacchio etc) RM and LM: Winger-Support. These guys are the engines of your team, and a LOT of running is expected from the players playing in these two positions. Their job is to supplement the attack with passes to the forwards, whilst also getting into the box to provide incisive crosses when the opportunity presents itself. They also need to do a job defensively, tracking back to alleviate the problems caused by the opposition wide-men. Needless to say, 15+ Stamina and Work Rate is pivotal for your wingers to perform upto their extremely high standards. I also can't stress enough on the importance of speed, which fortunately is available aplenty in my Gladbach side. I did use left-footed players on the left and right-footers on the right, I'm not too sure as to how inverted wingers may work, but you can give it a try and let me know. (Fabian Johnson, Herrmann, Bellarabi, Mkhitaryan, Lennon, Rose{retrained to LM} etc) LCM: Deep Lying Playmaker- Defend. This guy acts as the cog in your team, sitting in front of the defenders and will recycle possession to the players in front of him, whilst always offering an option to pass the ball to. Along with this, he is also your defensive enforcer, winning the ball back in midfield and quickly laying it off to more attack-minded players, facilitating a quick counter attack. Retrain a good DM with alright passing [minimum 13] who doesn't try many risky passes to this role and you'll do very well. Christoph Kramer was one of my most solid players all season, with the highest passing accuracy in the club (88%). Note: Do make sure you have plenty of depth in this position, as it is very prone to having a lot of yellow cards, Kramer had 20 bookings over the season for me. Fortunately I had Tobias Strobl and Diego Poyet who could fill in when needed. (Kramer, Schweinsteiger, Kranevitter, Matic, Besic etc) RCM: Box-to-Box midfielder. This player during the attacking phase will be your more aggressive midfielder, venturing forward and looking at killer passes to your forwards and/or wingers. While a forward moves into a channel, the box-to-box midfielder will see the space and dart in to it, hoping to get on the end of a cross or a pull-back. The Gets into opposition area or Arrives Late in the Box trait should work well for this position I imagine. Needs to have high work-rate and stamina as he will also be doing some defensive work along with his offensive duties. High passing and vision is also a bonus. (Dahoud, Pogba, Alli, Joao Mario, Ander Herrera etc) LF and RF: F9- support. These forwards should be your skillful players, who know how to use the ball, while making the most of their movement to get into channels either wide, or inward, details of which will be shown in screenshots below. They will get a load of goals, as well as assists for your central and main striker. More often than not, I played Raffael and Lars Stindl up there, and from their stats which I will be posting below, you will see that they were absolutely phenomenal. (Raffael, Stindl, Dybala, Hazard, Penaranda, Son-Heung Min etc) ST- Complete Forward (Attack). Your main goalscoring threat, although the goals will be divided a lot amongst all three frontmen. Finishing, off the ball movement and pace are key attributes, as they were for Andre Hahn, doesn't look like he can do much with his technical stats, but he was an absolute goal-machine, leaving defenders in his wake with his 18 pace, also being the quickest to meet crosses from the wide-men/false 9's. This player doesn't need to be very flashy, just needs to get the job done. (Hahn, Berahino, Aubameyang, Hernandez, Bale, Vardy etc) Now that I've told you a fair bit about the player roles and the formation in general, let me go in deep regarding how the team works and how some link-ups prove key to the success of this tactic. DLP IN POSSESSION The DLP (Kramer) receives the ball deep and weighs his multiple options before executing the pass. THE THREE FORWARDS LINKING UP The following sequence of images show how the three frontmen are involved in building a move which leads to a goal for our main striker, Andre Hahn. Raffael picks up the ball after it is won in midfield, the opposition panics and rushes towards him, leaving acres of space on the right hand side. Raffael promptly spreads the ball out wide to Herrmann, who spots the run of Thorgan Hazard into the outside right channel. Herrmann feeds Hazard, who rolls it across goal to Hahn for a simple tap-in. LINK-UP BETWEEN WINGER AND WIDE FORWARD Fabian Johnson picks the ball up and drives at the Basel defence. As the opposition left-back rushes to close him down, Raffael sees the space in the outside left channel and is picked out by Johnson. Hahn's movement is too good for the defence to handle as he gets in front of everyone to head home Raffael's cross from out wide. CLOSING DOWN IN MIDFIELD The high pressure from the team shuts Wolfsburg's avenues down as Maxi Arnold is forced into a backpass to Phillip Wollscheid. Wollscheid hurriedly makes the clearance which is pounced upon by Andre Hahn. Three to four passes later, Hahn is in on goal and does not miss. RESULTS What good is a tactic, if it does not provide you with the results you need? I won the Bundesliga with Gladbach, edging out Bayern on goal difference, while also making a Champions League surge to the Quarter-Finals, where I was beaten on away goals after a 1-1 aggregate result against Atletico Madrid. As you can see from the league table, we scored the most goals in the league, a staggering 96, averaging 2.8 goals per game, which is a fabulous attacking record. Defensively, we conceded 42 goals, which can be considered a lot but still managed to somehow be the second best defense in the league, behind Bayern. As for our signings, the only notable ones were Carlos Vela, who could not get into the team thanks to the form of the front 3, and Kevin Wimmer on loan from Spurs in January, to replace the departing Vestergaard, who had a torrid time with us and couldn't handle the prerequisites which came with this formation. Here are a few of my notable matches- Included the 3-2 loss against Barcelona at the Camp Nou too, as from the stats we out-possessed Barcelona (no mean feat) as well as had more shots, but Suarez was just too clinical for us to handle. The match went a long way to show that on our day, we can compete with absolutely anyone, which is also shown by 3-2 and 4-0 wins over Bayern and Dortmund respectively. PLAYER STATS As I mentioned earlier, my main men were the front 3, Raffael, Hahn and Stindl. Instead of posting their stats one-by-one, I'll just leave this here and let it do the talking. Shoutout to Thorgan Hazard as well, a constant provider of goals from the bench, and really stepped up to the plate when Stindl was injured for 8-9 weeks midway through the year. Another honorable mention goes to my B2B, Mahmoud Dahoud who made it into the Bundesliga team of the year. Well, so now I've shown you the results, shown you how the team will set up, shown you what players you should look for, looks like my job is done. Oh wait, I need to provide the tactic. Here you go. THE TACTIC Albatross 3-4-3_F14C4900-C6CB-4067-BBBA-AA5875CEC5E8.fmf Enjoy, and do let me know how your season goes. I'm going to try it out myself with another team as a test, maybe a side with lower expectations, such as West Brom, with a front three of Rondon, Chadli and Berahino. Sounds exciting, already! I hope to read your feedback regarding this tactic. Thanks a lot.
  10. This years FM I've been blessed to watch a decade of dominance from the best regen striker I've ever had, Rodrigues. I'm bias enough to believe he's one of the best regens anyone has gotten this year because it's hard to imagine a more prolific goal scorer, so this got me thinking. Who's your most dominant, clinical goal scorer in FM16?
  11. Hi, I was wondering (while im sure it differs with players and teams) do defensive lines suit deep/lying forwards, false 9's or is it the other way around? defending with a deep line perhaps suits you're team using an advanced forward or poacher? I would love some advice on the whole defensive line and type of forwards suit best. Thanks
