Hello everyone,

Edit: I think i posted this thread in a wrong section maybe? if so, please move it and sorry for that.
Recently, I started to play FM15 and I really like it.
but still, it doesn't make sense that every time my players just cannot score.
As a former semi professional footballer, I can understand that you "sit" on the opposite and you cannot score, but not in every game, my team morale is high (strikers as well, so it's not about low morale).
I will share with you many screenshots from games, which i have more possession more shooting on target (and not, not from long range, i'm talking about one on one and sometimes wingers which cutting inside the box).
While the opposite team have "a bit less" chances compare to mine and most of the times for them it's like 90% of their chances are ending with goals.
This is very frustrating and really seems to be buggy for me, something is wrong with this game IMPO.
Yes, I'm only 5 points from 3rd position but it doesn't make sense, the amount of chances which i can't end it with a goals.
I'm not expecting to win every game with 5-0 or something, but this situations are way from realism.
the tactics I'm using is:

I most of the times before the game starts, I'm switching to push higher.

Please some help for the current situation will be very helpful, since I really already thought about quitting.
There is no way the picture I uploaded here are normal.

Hello michelhovel !
Well the problem isnt much that u cant score but that u dont understand that your team is a low-mid table team u should focus on defending and counter attacking instead off attacking/controlling the game SO
IF i were u i whould change my system to
4 Defenders Full Back(D) Limited Defender(D) Limited Defender(D) Full Back(D)
1 Defensive Midfielder Regista(S)
2 Central Midfielders Ballwinning Midfielder (S) DeepLine Playmaker (D)
2 wide attacking midfielders Winger (S) Inside Forward (A)
1 Center Forward Poacher (A) OR Advance forward (A)
That whould be my system
Counter mentality When i am underdog
Control mentality when i am favourite
When im favourite i whould change defenders to Central Defender (D) and Ball playing Defender (D)
"instructions"
pass into space (if control mentality)
Retain possition (if control mentality)
Drop Deeper
Close Down More
Stay On feet
Prevent Short keeper Distribution (if not playing control mentality)
Lower tempo (when control mentality)
Higher tempo (when counter mentality)
Be more disciplined
Player Intstructions
Poacher -> move into channels
Regista -> close down more
Full back -> close down more
feel free to pm if i can help u smh ^
Good Luck and have fun with the game

- DOES EVERYBODY UNDERSTAND what the "control" mentality is/does? Its an attacking mentality (right behind attacking actually) and very difficult to set up. Id avoid it unless people are certain what they are doing tactically and use standard instead.

Front 3 not defending much and no movement at all except for all 3 to sit on the shoulder of the defence.

Midfield with nobody holding and nobody making attacking runs - not that the front 3 are creating any gaps.

TIs that don't make sense based on the setup.

That's your tactic summed up in 3 lines. I could get into more detail, but that's the worst of it.

Well i've done pretty well with that way of playing control indeed is an attacking mentality thats why i use it against underdogs teams and not against better teams than mine well u can also watch your opponets injuries and condition so even if u play against real with injured some crusial player u can use control against then if your team is w/o injuries !^Well everyone has his way but we all try to have fun the most out of the game ^_^

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the delay and thank you very much for helping me out.
The problem wasn't with the tactic I was playing, the problem was with the game was fully bugged.
I made a research a bit and i came to a conclusion that my game wasn't updated since i was playing with Steam on offline mode, I don't know why steam didn't updated the game immediately after downloading it, but that fixed most of the problems.

Since English isn't my main language, it was hard for me to fully understand the roles and other tactics which was needed to be fully understand before picking them.
there is an Israeli community which gives a proper translation to each rules and now, it's more obvious for me.
the tactics made here by me was very bad... that's true, MANUMAD, no need to be rude, however I really appreciate your comment.

Again I want to thank all of you for trying to help me out.

1. I didnt say control doesnt work or work the way you said. I just notice that most people dont realise its an attacking mentality.
2. The system you explain looks good and reasonable. I may try it as requested.
3. Apo pou akrivos ise file? Which team do you support?
