Just thought that I should ask for some advice on a tactic that I've been working on. Main principles are to hold possession and to obviously suffocate the other team.
I've had trouble when playing against the larger sides. Would anyone care to venture a guess as to how/why that could...
Trying to create something along the lines of a 3-5-1-1 and defensively I have been quite solid.
What (in your opinion) is the best front 2.
I'm currently using a SS with DLF (S) - it seems to be working okay but I"m not scoring near enough.
This player is quality from the beginning of the game - I don't know why he doesn't get spoken about more.
I'm currently in 2017. Loaned him to QPR, got me 5 goals and 3 assists from 38 games.
I moved to Napoli and bought him for 3.8m (cheap).
Two seasons in and they have looked like this...
Arsene Wenger is undeniably a very good coach (tactically and economically!). So how has he been so successful whilst being so shrewd with his money?
That's what this is for. I want to try and emulate his style in FM14!
First stage: Understanding everything about his tactics!
I will be...
I need someone who would be willing to test my tactic(s) for me, and provide feedback as to what needs to be improved.
It's an tactic based on my own philosophy, 3 strong midfield players who control the entire field, with two wingers who push forward and score goals as well as creating chances...
Creating a tactic, working wonderfully.
Defense was tight, attack was incredible.
Even tho I'm not letting in too many (Seasons almost finished, only conceded like 14), my attacks petered out, which has resulted in draws/narrow losses.
Quite frustrating. I'm not sure what to use my Striker, I...
Has anybody else used him? In my Wigan save he's been a rock defensively, whilst contributing to the attack.
I have hindered his development somewhat by playing him in a defensive position, but this kid is quality.
Was part of a League winning team.
Here's a ss of his in my save:
I was analyzing Barcelona vs AC Milan (Second leg), and I noticed how Barcelona played villa as a number 9, with Messi playing in behind him. This confused the defenders a great deal, as they couldn't mark both Messi and Villa without breaking their defensive line. What this did was allow Messi...
Playing with Wigan (Obviously :p)
Kone is getting injured constantly, even tho his workload is very little.
I am rotating my strikers (5 of them), so it's not fatigue either.
I am just wondering if there was a good replacement for him?
Playing as an AF.
Also, Di Santo has been playing well...
I'm using Wigan. Trying to keep Roberto playing style as that's what I prefer.
First things first.
I am playing a 5-2-1-2,as you can see below:
The players sometimes make really, really stupid passes. I can see the through ball that will send one of the strikers on goal and for some reason...

My names Rasheed, and I'm from Australia. I've been playing FM for quite some time now.
A little about my ideologies in football:
I believe in a possession game, with a lot of direct passes.
I'll post a thread on my wigan ideology in a bit :p
