  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. 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.
  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 many topics like youth development, in-game tactical changes, style development far better than I do. I have put a lot more into my "how to build a team" section, to try and illustrate the thought process in a clearer manner. Thanks to everyone who downloaded the last version and I hope this version helps you too - the last guide was downloaded over 1 million times! This is by no means the complete authority on football manager, but they are sensible starting blocks for a team. Please leave any constructive feedback, I'm always happy to hear it. Please do not redistribute this without my expressed permission. Pairs & Combinations (2020).pdf
  3. On Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4 Unable to drag-and-drop players into new positions in Tactic editor. Alternative positions doesn't show up. Known issue/bug?
  4. 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 attached - simply put, a high tempo/high urgency style with my team DNA focused on Work Rate, Teamwork, and Acceleration/Pace attributes. My strikers right now are AML Maurizio de Jong (who should be one of the best players in the world on paper), AMR Tony Smith, and ST Mario de Rose. On the bench I have Tom Walsh, who could be a starter in his own right. All three starters are world class, and do alright, but we are fifth in the league in scoring when I really reckon we could do better. I think it has something to do with my role combinations. My lead scorer is Tony Smith, which surprises me in his IF-S role and low finishing. Both him and De Jong are better suited for winger roles, and with Mario De Rose about to turn 30 I could try to replace him with a more classic striker instead of a trequartista? Alternatively, De Jong can also play Striker as an advanced forward... Anyhow, what role combinations do you think could work here? De Jong has typical average ratings of 6.8-6.9, and De Rose 6.9, so I feel like there is a lot of room for improvement. Thank you for any help!
  5. 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
  6. 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 players, witch you have in the squad. I understand, that tactic should be balanced and logical, and mentality affects all other, like tempo or passing. But - would you in this case setup more defensive and support roles on the pitch? Or lower mentality (defensive?)? Or maybe you have any other ideas? Write me please about your approach in case like this :-) Thanks and greets!
  7. 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 to "Park the Bus" against us! The biggest tweak was going from Cautious to Balanced Mentality...because of how to deal with overly Defensive Teams deployed by AI. That is my tactic so far.... My biggest problem is RWB Here are the Candidates: Best Offensive One: Decent option but short: Best Option according to Assman: Another Area of question is my AP and Mezzala Roles: According to me this is the best AP on team, BUT Assman thinks he should be playing Mezzala…. According to me Best Mezzala, BUT Assman thinks is best AP... Please give me some advice on players and if I should change roles.... My Team is devastating on the Counter...often wins 3-0 or more but has trouble with team that do the same to them. Also I am willing to discuss the 5-3-2 WB in General to help me understand the general concepts.....
  8. As per attached thread, I'm trying to test a number of tactics over holiday, using FMT on Android. I've asked around and it is possible to go on holidays and tick a box "keep current tactic" to do this using FMT on PC apparently. Indeed there are other "Tactics and Team selection" options such as "Use current team selection when possible" and "Use match plan". Shouldn't these options also be available on FMT on Android? It was suggested in the thread to report this as a bug.
  9. 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 role and one support keanes role alot of people say box to box but i see his play style as bwm but he did get further forward then ince in general. wings here im not sure was they am strata or mid strata both was winger attack strikers well hughes was not a taqrget man or advanced forward he was a bit of both i see pressing forward support as the perfect role it acts like a target man but is more mobile i.e hughes cantona i think is probably a treq but not an overly quick one decent in the air and the hub of the team now is he in the striker pos or am pos i see the number 10 role as being am in real life a lack of understanding meant he was shown in the st strata. this lack of understanding in taqctics meant this was viewed as 4-4-2 but was it really im thinking a cross between 4-4-2 and 4-2-3-1 like this gkd fbs cbd cbd fbs bwms bwmd wa trq wa pfs ideas welcome help def needed
  10. 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 am a complete novice when it comes to tactics so any help would be welcome Thanks.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.

  15. 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 interfere with "Stay Wider".
  16. 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 .
  17. 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!
  18. 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?
  19. 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!
  20. 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
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. 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?
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
