  1. I play Football Manager is phases, have done so for the past 15 years. I play and get into it for a few months, find a working tactic, understand my squad and have the success i want, and then stop playing for a few months and come back to it feeling almost completely lost and far behind the knowledge of my previous managerial in-game self. When this happens i am able to somehow claw back the knowledge from scouring this specific forum for hours, but sometimes i need just a quick, concise reminder to get me back on track. Disclaimer : I will most certainly get some of these wrong and want this to become more of a collaborative effort with people joining in and giving their battle worn advice. So, what are these attributes, (and attribute clusters) and what do they simply mean in terms of gameplay. Really. So you got a striker who seems better than the one you previously had but still can't seem to score the goals the previous one did so easily ? Same with a star midfielder, or defender. A tactic not working even though it seems good at face value ? There's a good chance there's an important attribute you are overlooking .
  2. Welcome to Caixa Futebol Campus, the highly-proclaimed academy of S.L. Benfica boasting state of the art facilities and an abundance of talented young players in Football Manager 2018. The objective of this thread is to discuss youth development, with an emphasis on instilling an dynamic & adaptable style of play that progresses as the team develops. Disclaimer: the topic of Youth Development in Football Manager has been well documented over a number of years, the purpose of this thread is more application in relation to developing a tactical approach. Overview of Youth Development in Football Manager Defining a Playing Style Class of 2018 Developing Current Ability Training Ground Thank you for reading! I'd also like to thank @Anaconda Vice for the Emilio Sansolini kits.
  3. I created a custom view for the tactics screen with several columns. Every time I go back to that screen the column sizes have reset so that the last column disappears. I then do an auto reset of all column sizes and it reappears. There is no option to save the view on the manage views menu.
  4. I’m in the process of developing a tactic for a new Manchester United save I am doing. I’ve been reading several guides from these forums to create a solid system, but there’s some further guidance I’d like. My philosophy for the team will be (broadly speaking) high line and high pressing intensity hoping to win the ball back quickly. In the attacking transition I want to play swift, direct counter attack if the gaps are there. Playing a lower LOE/higher DL should help facilitate this style. If gaps for a counter attack aren’t there, I want to play a more patient possession based game until the gaps arise. I will endeavour to use attacking overloads to create this space. However, I’ve a few questions. I’ve got several aspects of the tactic solidified in terms of which roles I want to play, which TIs I want to use etc., but there are still some grey areas. Firstly, if I select in the ‘In Transitions’ tab to counter upon winning the ball back, but then in my ‘In Possession’ tab a more patient approach, will that deliver what I want? I.e will the tactics then be to only counter if we can and if not to play patiently? Or will we counter regardless of the opportunity every time the ball is won back? Secondly, I know I want a DM who will give cover in front of my CBs and hold his defensive position in the attacking phase. The Anchorman role suits this, however it means their passing will be simply and risk-free. A DLP on defend, however, gives the opportunity for more adventurous passing if the opportunity is there - this could be crucial for launching counter-attacks. However, I worry a DLP would not sit as deep and be as defensively disciplined as an Anchorman... is this true? If so, how do I get what I want from my DM? Thanks!
  5. Hi, I always set instructions for the opposition according to the position, rather than the player e.g. DL is set to show onto wrong foot and close down. In previous versions, I could set this once at the beginning of a save and it would stay the same unless I changed the instruction for that position. On FM2020 it resets after every match. This is maddening. Is there a plan to fix this?
  6. I’m yet to start a save in FM20 and wanted to know what the best attacking tactics were, particularly to play like Liverpool or Man City but I was going to select Man Utd and was going to make a lot of squad changes anyway. Wanted to use a 4-2-3-1 or 4-1-2-2-1 but wanted to know more on mentalities, player roles, instructions etc. Any advice would be very much appreciated! Thank you in advance!
  7. Atm when a club have B squad we can only: Receive feadback from their games Send and remove players from B to A, and vice versa In FM20 the option to manage B squad tactics and training is kind of locked for next version or its gonna be released in the official game, we can change who does that but if we choose us we cant do it period. In different view we have sub 19 squad, if we chose us to do something , every piece of stuff we have on the A team is possible to make kids do. Change this idea status if its gonna be released in official version or if neither in reality this is possible (i understand if FM wants to keep reality status on the things) but the options are there, if we are unable to change due to the things are only predictable to be changed next year just remove that options from training and tactics sections related to B squad. I have seen some FMhamsters thinking about this and it makes sense
  8. Welcome here, it's time to start this Barnsley F.C. save, if you're a fan I beg your pardon for the logo, I don't like the original one so I made my own logo for this career. First of all I need to say thanks to @Jamesbfc1887, his first season struggle with the Tykes was really inspiring, being a Championship lover I managed Barnsley before and I know something about the club, but before reading his thread I didn't know how much I needed to play with them once again. I'm playing with the original database (75000 people) with no edit. I perfectly agree with Chien Lee (Barnsley new owner) words regarding how he usually runs his business: I'm not sure if he really knows what to buy, unfortunately for the Barnsley fans he surely knows what to sell, for example he sold many of the club top assets recently: Moore, Pinnock and Lindsay above all, without replacing them properly. We're media predicted to finish 24th, so they give us no hope to stay up, but we have a different plan. What the board want I have no problem with focusing on young players, the club needs to grow up and bringing in hot prospects with potential looks like a viable option, in this first transfer window I signed mainly under 22 players, I agree with self-sustainability as well, playing entertaining football it's a different story though... The main goal of this first season is to survive but afterwards we're going to start what our owner defined "the internationalization of the club", to promote Barnsley all over the world. The players I signed I set some rules regarding loans fir this first season, no more than 5 of them and all the loan should have a "reasonable" agreed price clause, I'm not going to nurture players without having the chance to sign them on a permanent basis. Nicholas Opoku, Cd, 21 yrs, 2M agreed price Torben Musel, St, 20 yrs, 375k Zaydou Youssouf, Mc, 20 yrs, 3.5M Birama Tourè, Dmc, 27 yrs, 500k Mitch Clark, Dr/l, 20 yrs, 2M I sold Cavarè (injury prone and with expiring contract) and Thiam (useless for my system) for a sum of 1.8M that was added (95%) to my transfer budget of 2.9M used to sign the following men: Harry Toffolo, left back, 24 yrs, 575k Hampus Finndell, Mc, 19 yrs, 500k Aurelien Nguiamba, 800k The system I'm planning to use, could it work? Thanks for reading, feel free to share your thoughts and...Up the Tykes!
  9. I used this last season & now this, it's been tweaked a few times. Last season with the team I have, I should have probably performed better in the PL given the team I've put together with a Tycoon Owner. I can see there's probably a problem, playing without Wingers or an AM & setting up the way I am. From the results so far, while we're harder to break down(more often than not) scoring goals has been a problem. What problems do you see & tweaks you'd make? I like the idea of 3 Strikers, but would be willing to change to 2 or even 1 if it works better.
  10. I have 3 tactic, sometimes i have worse knowledge about tactic and have good news, but sometimes i have better knowledge and have opinion like on picture WHY?
  11. As per title. I've already logged into Steam via FM Touch on my Android device and set up the cross-sync. But when I access cross-sync, I can only see my local files for upload and no Steam files for downloading ... I've double-checked my tactics folder and also cleared the cache, restart, etc.
  12. Just wanted to put this out here because I did a search and didn't see any threads about it which genuinely shocked me. I will upload pkms and post in maybe a more relevant part of the forum but I just wanted to put this in general discussion to start with. The amount of shots from either the byline or an incredibly stupid angle are absolutely ridiculous. Everybody I've spoken to in person about FM20 has noticed it. I'm playing a play style that is all about stretching the pitch and it is so infuriating to see my full back get to the byline and shoot when there's options in the box. Anybody else seeing this? And yes, I have put my full backs on "Shoot Less Often" and theyre only on support mentality. The problem also exists for wingers too.
  13. HELP ME I WANT 4231 TACTIC WITH ADVANCED PLAYMAKER MAKE MANY ASSIST FOR FM19 P.S. SORRY ABOUT MY GRAMMAR
  14. Hey I have noticed that more and more people use asymmetric tactics, incl. myself of course. A very common situation happening when having a asymmetric tactic is that you need to mirror it before or during a match, e.g. due to limited number of players with a position or due to the opponent being weak on one flank. EXAMPLE You may play a 5-3-2 where you on the left side have a full-back and on the right side a wing-back. I am talking about position not roles, though it could also just be role-wise. Here it might be that my right wingback gets injured, but on the bench I only have a right full-back, who cannot play the wing-back position at all. But on the left side I may be more fortunate, so I could make that guy a left wing-back. Now, it may be the rest of my tactics is dependent on those two (maybe one is an inverted full-back and the other a complete wing-back, which could affect wing players' roles further up) and I would probably like to mirror my formation, which would require a lot of other changes higher up the pitch. Having a mirror button would save me a lot of time in situations like this! FEATURE WISH I would suggest a Quick Mirroring and an Advanced Mirroring button. The quick would simply mirror all positions, roles and team options. The advanced would give you options, so you could choose only to mirror certain things of the above. You may even only want to swap certain positions, which could be chosen through a tick box. For example you may simply want to swap two MC's roles. Currently when you drag one guy to another's position, the roles will stay and the persons will simply change positions. But you may want to just swap the roles and let the persons stay in their positions or maybe swap both the roles and position. I hope you like this idea!
  15. Hi guys, I'm not the best at creating real life tactics form scratch and was wondering if someone would mind creating Sampaoli's tactics? I know he likes to change formation a lot so either from his time from Sevilla now at Santos would be great. Much appreciated.
  16. Ever been sat in the pub telling your mate about how you've been on a 15 match run without a win and discussing what changes you should make to try and break it. So many times I've been writing tactics and formations down on napkins and beer mats when I think of ideas. Then the next day when you load up FM you can't remember what you wanted to try and you find that napkin 2 days later when it's been through the wash in your pocket. Imagine having a companion app on your mobile which gave you the ability to create FM tactics on your phone and then save them so you can either copy them into FM when you next load up the game or even just upload straight to the cloud so you can download it straight into the game. It could have a subscription fee for usage like the FMDB app.
  17. Hi Folks, How do you successfully play with 4-2-3-1 in football manager 2019? I have created multiple tactics but nothing seems to work. Attached is my latest 4-2-3-1, I hope all of you tactical genuis can help me to fix it, with this tactics my team scores maximum 2 goals and do not create many chances, Most of my games are ending up with draw. Most of the time, my team by passes DLP and BWM and directly pass ball to IF or wingbacks, My wingbacks will run with the ball and never crosses, Most of the time they end up loosing the ball with exposes the flanks.\ One more issue I have is with IF, No matter whom I play in IF, they seem to pass the ball directly to opposition. They try pass which is never on.
  18. I'll give a bit of a background. I'm currently managing Manchester United and through my first season I used 4-3-3 due to the small squad size but now i've got a "team" or at least my own where I want to work towards the traditional use of 4-2-3-1. This is the team and as you can see it's fairly good and i've won the league unbeaten. I swapped using 433 to 4231 around january so some stats are missleading especially pogba's. There's my tactics. I'm having a hard time trying to get the CAM to work and the strikers. Lukaku and Rashford with a CAM score less and are much more like shadows that only show up when opposition make mistakes (ignore the players on the scrn shot). I'm also having a hard time making pogba work in a 4231. I've tried using him as different roles and tried moving him up to CAM and he doesn't do great as in a 433 because he was the focal point which im trying to make with him at CAM. The CM roles usually are a DLP-S and a BBM. CAM I usually switch depending on the player so if it was mata when AP (mata comes really deep to get the ball cause of his trait and it's annoying as it creates a 3 man mid leaving the CAM space open and free). The run at defence helps the dribbling which I use quite a lot as I have pacey wide players (thauvin on right) and martial who seems to be balling with that TI on (tried without it and he fails to make dribbles per game). What role/PI's would you suggest I use for CAM and the Striker? AF for rashford works sometimes but im not 100% that's the role to make him score goals week in and week out. I want a role where he gets beyond the defensive line with his pace (would I need to change the directness of passing to make this work? but wouldnt that also mean he needs to be good in the air if it's direct TO him rather than infront?) Sancho RW as a winger, and fabio silva to replace lukaku as he's becoming a liability and just a terrible plan B that needs rid so likes of fabio and greenwood to blossom. I also want to be playing the ball on the deck most of the time rather than long balling.
  19. I have a general opinion that when players play continously at a position with same players, then they tend to form a partnership with them. Yet, in my team there are just two partnerships (bw CB and bw DMs) made even after 2/3 of the season has passed (I play Barnsley in Premier Division, FA Cup and Euro Cup as well) and I have been using the same tactic for a while now. Maybe there's some training which helps building partnership. Also how does it benefit the team like better cohesion or something?

  21. I'm trying to play a 4-2-3-1 with AMR and AML to take advantage of the talents of a certain striker i have. I want my team to primarily funnel balls through the middle for him to run onto, i want zero to no crosses from out wide at all. I've done a few hours and a large number of matches but can't seem to find what i want. I play on balanced mentality and have decided upon the roles of the 2 centrebacks, the AMC and the Striker. I want to know the player roles, and instructions i should employ for the wide men (AMRL and DRL) as well as midfield two to make my team play this way specifically. Any quick and easy answers would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Is it possible to have maxed out tactical familiarity for all 3 tactics ? I'm 2 and a half seasons into playing the same 3 tactics and my tactical familiarity still looks like this. I would appreciate any help. Thank you
  23. Where do I find performance stats on the tactics I used over the season? My board is "baffled by the so many tactics I used", and I plan to hone on one or two instead of three tactics. I thus need to see which ones worked best over the season in terms of wins, ratings, goals, etc. I also review players performance, to select which ones to renew contracts and raise in status, etc. Any tips on end of season review are appreciated. Thanks.
  24. I'm a bit of a tactical dinosaur. Adapting my style to my players and finding what works tends to be difficult for me.. I usually attempt to go for a fast, direct, attacking style. I don't really enjoy possession football. So I created this one below, but we're really struggling to get any sort of attacks going. Shadow striker is something I don't tend to use, but I've heard positive things. Out wide, I'm looking for options, LW coming in short, RW bombing out wide. The CMs are intended to hold position, DLP getting the ball to the attacker whilst CM-D holds and defends. I don't want the fullbacks getting to far forward. So I left them on Support. Any advice would be hugely appreciated! Thank you!
  25. Hi. I'm a big fan of FM and really like it alot, but the fact and matter is that I suck at tactics. I usually start a save but ends up quiting before I've reached January. I can't create tactics, I just suck. I've watched alot of youtube videos explaining how they work and what would work, and I know that there is no ultimate tactic that works for everything. I've tried the presets, I've tried making my own, and I've tried downloading tactics (allthough I prefer to make my own or use the presets). I struggle alot with knowing how to fix up with the problems that occure. Whenever something happens, like I concede a goal, I can't understand what's going on and what I am doing wrong, I just don't understand it. I've had good saves before but I am slowly on a decline and on the phase of giving up completely, which is quite unfortunate since I have a lot of hours on this game and it's one of my favorites! If anyone could give me some links for simple tutorials or come with tips to help my motivation or help me get better at tactics that would be great. I know alot about the game and have my routines such as giving my assistant multiple roles that I cannot perform. I also fill up the staff to upgrade it overall wherever I am.
