Please if you can work this out please tell me I have just played all my pre season game and won them all and only conceded 1 goal and won possession 60%+ in every match and scored lots of goals made lots of chances

Then this happened WFT this game is broken!.....View attachment 334517...View attachment 334520...View attachment 334521

My Tactic View attachment 334518View attachment 334519 I used the counter tactic for the both games....

If i should change my tactic in some way please let me know but i just dont get how these tactics don't work when they both dominated in friendly's....

Are you serious, you think the game is broken because you lost to two teams that have better squads than you, saying you should have won those just because you have won against some minor ( apart from Lille) in some friendlies ?

Apart from Lille you played nothing teams in your friendlies, you were pretty much always going to dominate them.
Game isn't broken, you just beat some much weaker teams in games that mean nothing and thought your team was better than it is.

In terms of the tactic, I would perhaps not use such low press and d-line ( stand off) when using a 2 MC midfield where one of them is a ballwinner. There are simply too much space for the opponent to exploit in the hole. If wanting to play a direct counter approach, I would would probably drop into a DMC-DMC-MC formation and press " normal".

Well, when standing off, your approach is to simply let them have the possessiona and as they probably sat with enough people behind the ball when you tried to hit direct balls into channels to counter them, you lost possession straight away.

Here, I would probabaly have dropped the MCs into DMC and played " Standard", " normal press" and used the shouts " retain possession and pass to feet" to get in control of the game again

With that said, why not start a new save with them. Have a look at their strength and weaknesses. Try to use a formation that suits the team and let you be able to both control the game using shouts and hit them on the counter using different shouts. Also remember that when having so many new players, it might take up to 6 mongths before that start to play as a team.

I did not say that. Naturally you can sign players but you need to acknowledge that too many will leave you with a team lacking understanding.

I have not said you did not master previous editions of FM where one could easily plug in a tactic that exploited the match engine ( even though it could have been a solid tactic using common football logic, it could still have exploited the engine) . But seeing that you have no intention what so ever of actually responding to the help I am trying to offer, I will leave you to your rant.
