  1. 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.
  2. Pairs & Combinations - The Ultimate Guide I am delighted to release the 2020 edition of Pairs & Combinations! The guide will contain some similar information to last time, but a lot of new information too - taking account of the changes to the game in the last 5 years since the previous release. I have removed sections on formations, playing style etc., and focused much more on the real purpose of this guide - getting a balanced and effective setup for your team, making the best of your team. There are some amazing guides from some amazing writers, vloggers etc. that cover ma
  3. Overview So this year Sports Interactive introduced one feature I don't like, when you go to the match tactics screen, it loads the shrunk panel in by default. I've wanted to change it but never got round to it until now. Luckily enough it was easy enough to change. You can either download the file below and paste it into skin folder/panels/match or recreate the mod yourself. You'll need match tactics overview panel.xml from the panels.fmf file, next you'll need to find the following lines of code. To change which loads by default, you'll just need to move the hidden="true
  4. Not exactly a bug, but the game seems extremely easy this year. Have just finished my first season as Arsenal. Made no signings. Won the premiership, carabao cup, FA cup, and Europa League without losing a single competitive match (lost the Community Shield game against Liverpool). Anyone else having any sort of comparable experience?
  5. I have just berated Mario Lemina and regretted it. Went to cancel, at which point it pauses the game. I press play but now still cannot cancel. It meant I couldn’t then make any further tactical changes for the remainder of the game. Occurring on iPad Air 2
  6. Incredibly minor one but players on the bench have the first few letters of their surname appear. When I then press the 2 << arrows to go to the other tactic view, then back to the view of the pitch the names appear correctly. Using an iPad Air 2
  7. Needs fixing urgently as makes the game a bit redundant at the moment
  8. Hi everyone, I've had quite the run with the lowly Forest Green Rovers of Nailsworth. Starting in League 2, I clawed my way up to the Premier League by 2024. Now in 2037, I am one of the top teams in the league (I have won the euro cup and gotten to the finals of the champions league, but no premier league trophy yet...) The team is generally performing well, but I think I can achieve more in the attacking third. Specifically, I have a truly world-class player that I cannot seem to get the best out of - Maurizio de Jong. I'll start with my overall tactical approach, which I've a
  9. I was wondering what is the best midfield role for a 433? I am playing Roaming Mid - Deep Lying (D) - Roaming Mid in a 3 midfield system. Instructions are central passing + work into box @ control mentality # Forwards are 2 IF & 1 CF - all support
  10. Hi all, I'm interesting on your approach in creating tactic to total underdog teams. Team, witch media says, that will be last in their (lowest) league, board talking about brave battle against relegation, and most attributes are lowest in the league - so it's difficult to find the way, playing system (too slow to counter, worst technically to posession, weak to defend - in compare to other teams all, let say, between 20th and 17th in 20-team league). What are you doing in this case? Transfer - ok, but let say, that in the moment it is not possible. So you have to work with this play
  11. Hello all! I am an infrequent commenter on these forums but would like some help with my current tactic to perfect it. In my current save I am playing in the Peruvian First Division and was able to save the team from relegation and not being able to play them. My purpose in choosing a 5-3-2 WB formation is that I never used it before and I am trying to explore more Defensive Type tactics. I started out with the Fluid Counter Attack Module in the Tactics Creator and came up with this... I have already had to make a couple of tweaks because teams are beginning t
  12. ok so i have often wanted to try and replicate fergies achievments but the one tactic no body seems to write about how to build it is the 1994 double team my first thoughts are united used wing play as a template ill start here player roles are an issue tho. gk i see schmeichel as a standard gk with distribute quick to the flanks and throw long. rb and la i see standard fb support cb here im not sure i believe it was a cover stopper set up but was they both standard cb or was it nononsense cbs or a combination im stuck here? cm im thinking two bwm one def inces rol
  13. Hi chaps, looking for some tactical help, I had this idea whilst doodling at work recently and before I test it out in my save I was hoping if you could guys could see any major flaws in the system for me? So my idea was to play a counter attacking system with a TM to hold up the ball for 2 mezzalas and a shadow striker to run off him, we also will focus on early crosses from the wingbacks to the TM to head down for the midfielders or to hold up the ball. In defence i wanted a block of 4 players to always stay back in case of the opposition countering us. Please bare in mind I a
  14. I know it may seem like a simple concept, but I still can't decide what to use, how to use, or when to use Inverted Wingers or Wingers, and Wingbacks or Inverted Wingbacks. How do I decide what to use, what should I be looking for in a player to perform these roles, and when should I used them? I do know for Inverted Wingers and Wingers to look what side the strong foot is on, but this goes for signing players as well, what role I should be looking at.
  15. Hey all, I’ve been trying to make a 41212 narrow formation work in the way I picture football working, in my vision. I transferred from the 41221, and just couldn’t pick up anywhere near as many goals, as well as being defensively poorer, forcing me to switch back. Could I get any ideas about what’s going wrong? Using the WBa as a WBs is an option, and the HB can’t be a DLPd as the defensive position doesn’t work with only 2 CB, from what I’ve observed. The two tactics I’ve been using are below. I have mainly CFa’s, but I do have Erling Haland as well.

  17. Can the stay wider instruction be used for central midfielders? I'm trying a tactic with 3 Box to box midfielders. It's working fine so far, I was considering if I could improve it by using the "stay wider" instruction for the 2 lateral players (during highlights I noticed the players are really close to each other). However, I'm not sure what this does exactly, from what I read it's meant to make wide players hug the touchline. Also, the players have the "Roam from position" instruction (I'm guessing this is a default for the role since I didn't add it) and I'm not sure how this would in
  18. 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 wan
  19. 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 bas
  20. 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?
  21. 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!
  22. 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 n
  23. 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.
  24. 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?
  25. 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.
