    Making players play in their nation of nationality?

    So I've been wondering this for awhile, but is there a way to restrict players from playing outside their nation? So only English players in the BPL, Spanish players in La Liga, etc. I know about the Bosman ruling, I just want to know if this is possible. And if it is, how could I set it up? Thanks!

    4-1-2-1-2 (Wide Diamond)

    Does anyone have a successful 4-1-2-1-2 (wide diamond) tactic? It seems like its not a popular formation. I like the 4-4-2 (flat midfield) and the 4-1-2-1-2 (wide diamond). If anyone could link me to one, I'd really appreciate it!

    Looking for a challenge

    As the title states, I'm looking for a new challenge in FM15. Something that will keep my interest in the game. Something unique. I've taken clubs from the lowest leagues in game to the top (English, German, and Spanish clubs). I've done plenty of homegrown/academy only challenges. Just looking...

    Instant Result'ers

    Are there any of you that use "Instant Result" to get through your games? If so, what are your strategies when you use it? Like, what match plans do you tend to use? Just curious. I've been doing it in my Ebbsfleet save as a friend and I are racing to the Premier League. Thanks!

    The American | A Journeyman's Career

    So if the title isn't obvious enough, I am indeed American. Since I started playing Football Manager 14 I've always thought about being the best manager, and when you think of the world's best managers, no American's come to mind. I'm looking to become the best manager in the world, and lead the...

    Adding a filter to the fixture list

    The current skin I'm using doesn't have a filter for the fixture list. And what I mean by that is by letting me filter the league matches, friendlies, Europa/Champions League matches, etc. Is there anyway I can add this myself?

    Problem With Some Skins

    I've been looking around for a new skin as of late. I really want the Bergkamp v4 or v5, however, I can't find one. But that's not my problem. My problem is whenever I try and use one of these new skins, I can't click the "Matches" shortcut button. I can click all the other shortcut buttons I...

    Vacationing To Test Tactics

    If you make it to where your assistant use your tactics in matches and what not, is it safe to say vacationing to test tactics is a good idea? I want to test a few tactics on 100% fluidity. Just want to see if this is a waste of time or not. Thanks!

    Playing as the Favorite/Underdog Questions

    I'm learning as I go when it comes to tactics. I see some tactic creators have a way of playing home and away and being the favorite/underdog. Is this essential to winning in FM? When I'm the favorite at home, how should I be playing? When I'm the underdog at home, how should I be playing? Vice...

    Preseason "General Training" Question

    I see a lot of tactics using "Team Cohesion" on "Very High" during the preseason. Is this a smart move for the first preseason of a save? One would think you'd only use TC if you brought in a few players. So my questions is, if not using TC, what should you be using for the general training...

    Higher Defensive Line

    I've been reading here lately its good to use "Higher Defensive Line" against bigger opponents. Is it safe to play it against smaller opponents as well? Or does it have a reverse effect? If I shouldn't use it against smaller opponents, what should I use? Thanks!
