    Which finishing preferred moves for these strikers.... ?

    Please help me by recommending finishing moves I can train for these players to help them score more. Im currently training Santos to try to beat the Offside trap, despite his natural tendency to be offside ALL the time lol. And I witnessed Sulca score a chipped shot over the GK yesterday but...

    AMC Player Roles in this tactic....

    Please could you give your thoughts on some of the player roles for my AMCs in this tactic. I'm not sure about using a shadow striker. It requires decent tackling for one thing which none of my AMCs rally have and their finishing is poor too. What combinations do you feel may work better here...

    Can anyone replicate Chile's 5-3-2 from the World Cup?

    I'd love to be able to use this and play exactly as they are playing. Constantly pressing all over the pitch, using their wing-backs as attackers, solid defending and using incredible work rate and determination and stamina.

    What are my ideal pitch size dimensions?

    I play a narrow 4231 with no wingers, I use instructions 'Play Wider' and also 'Exploit Middle'. My defensive line is normal and I don't use offside trap. The exact tactic I use is 'short play redhawk' - google those terms for more info - I have changed one of the BWMs to a box-to-box role. I...

    Closing down opposition Strikers?

    Some of the in-match advice I get from my assistant often says that a player is getting too much space and needs to be closed down. I don't disagree - these are usually guys who are driving all the attacks against us, but when they are strikers I never set the Opposition Instructions to close...

    Need a solid Counter tactic for my wingerless squad......

    My squad is comprised of DL/DRs, DCs, DM/MCs, AMCs and STs - I use a narrow 4-2-3-1. I have no wingers or enough versatility for WB position either. My best players are my AMCs. Atm I'm doing well and en route to winning the EPL but that means next season I'll be in the Champions Cup and up...

    AMC - Left foot/Right foot ideals ?

    I play with a Narrow 4231 using 3 AMCs behind the striker. Should I be playing 'Left Only' AMCs on the right side (technically they are all in the middle but you know what I mean),and the Right for players on the left? I notice the in-game advice that this is best done for strikers, but should...

    How do i describe my 4231 (opposite of 4231 Denamrk) ?

    Mine uses no wingers. Most of the available 4231 tactics I've found online and on the Workshop are 4231 Denmark so they have wide men out on the flanks but mine uses 3 AMCs. Anyone know if here is a name for this formation too? And anyone know of any really good ones posted on the Workshop...

    What exactly does the game determine an 'Important Match' ?

    So I am a mid-high table EPL side hoping to qualify for Champions League after my predecessor narrowly missed out on Euro Cup last season. I've strengthened my side about as much as I can but my approach to the league this season will be to pay less attention to the difficult matches with the...

    Question about CA reaching PA

    If I find a player who has a CA of around 150 and a PA of around 200 but their age is over 25, it gets me wondering why they haven't got closer to their potential. Let's say the player is 28 - should I still consider signing him or should I reason that he's not likely to improve that much for...

    Scenario: what would you do? .....

    You're the stronger team, you're playing at home in the 70th minute and you are 2-1 up. However, both teams are attacking hard and you feel the lead may be slipping away from you. You're philosophy is set to Control and has been all game. Then, you have a player sent off. Forget the position of...

    Need help turning this formation into a good tactic...

    It's a weird 433 with no wide players (technically I guess a 42121, with 2 DMs, 1 MC, 2 AMCs and 1 ST). I don’t have quality fullbacks but the rest of my team pretty much kicks @ss. This is an attempt to get more games for my DMs and AMCs cus I have a lot of them and they are mostly my best...

    Why does my tactic work and how can it work better?

    I've been using same tactic now since like FM10/11 I think. It's a 4-2-3-1 with no wide players ('cept fullbacks). I’ll run through the tactic first: Fluid / Control Depth: Pushing up Width: Narrow-to-average Tempo: Slow Offside Trap: On 2x Central Def - Defend 2x Full Backs - Auto 1x...

    How many seasons do you like to holiday before a new game?

    I myself prefer to start my career a decade or so ahead of the real date so there's plenty of regens, and players becoming staff. I thought i'd post this to see what others enjoy doing with theirs.If you don't do this at all or if you download a shard save online then that's OK just put 0, or...
