  1. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to send in nominations over the last few days, we as usual have an extensive list of members and content to vote for in the awards this year! Everything you see below has been nominated twice or more so to even be up for an award is a fine achievement and clearly the community have enjoyed you or the content you have produced this year. Before we start there is an award to hand out already and that is for Challenge of the Year. It became apparent that there wasn’t any point in putting this to a vote as nearly everybody nominated the fantastic Badges of Honour. This was started by Rob back in November, and the community all got involved creating new badges and playing the challenges set. It has provided countless hours of entertainment for vibers over the course of FMM21 and is a well deserved winner. So, congrats to Rob for coming up with the concept and also to everyone who got involved with the Badges throughout the year! And without further ado, here are the nominees for the vibe awards this year. Please take a look through and make sure you vote, especially if you have been nominated yourself. Make sure to vote in every category and you are not permitted to vote for yourself or your own content.

Rumours are also flying about that there will be a special award handed out on the night but that is being kept under wraps for the moment. PLEASE DO NOT VOTE IN THIS THREAD or discuss who you have voted for in it as it could influence how others vote and we want to make this as fair as possible to everyone nominated. Voting will be open for a week from when this is posted, so until roughly 6PM GMT next Tuesday so make sure you have your say before then. Again, well done to everyone who was nominated and good luck to all. Thanks!

  2. Hi everyone and welcome to the annual Vibe community awards where you can all show some love to members, content, events and more that you have enjoyed over the course of FMM21. The new game will be coming out exactly a month from now so it seems a perfect time to look back over the last year on vibe. Next week @FuddledFox will be presenting his traditional “interesting” awards ceremony but first we need everyone’s help to come up with the nominations for each category. If you’re not sure how this works or it’s the first awards you’ve participated in then it’s very simple. Everyone nominates a few things per category, when those categories are created it goes to a vote to decide the winner of each. Here is a link to last years awards: This year’s categories are: Best Member (overall) Best Newcomer Best Career Best Article Best Community Event Best Challenge Biggest Fail And a special award that will be handed out on the night. So don’t be shy and make sure anything you have enjoyed this year gets nominated. Anything that gets more than one nomination will automatically be included in the voting phase. Anyone is welcome to nominate and vote in these awards, whether you are a regular or someone who just visits on a sporadic basis, the more nominations the better. PLEASE SEND IN YOUR NOMINATIONS VIA PM TO ME. There is no limit to how many nominations you can make per category and try to nominate for every category if possible. Obviously you cannot nominate yourself or your own content as that completely defeats the object. The nomination phase will be open until Sunday night so just over 72 hours from now. I will reply to all nominations that are sent to me so if I don’t reply within 24 hours then send them again as I haven’t received them. We always get a good turnout for these awards so hopefully this can continue this year. Thanks!

    HELP WITH TACTIC

    Quick Analysis Using your tactic, I played a few games as Man Utd. Yes your tactic dominates weaker teams + yes I can see why you struggle vs the stronger teams. Match - Our opponents are using a 4231, with a defensive mentality. Key Issue #1: Lack short passing options from the back Against any opposition formation with an AMC, with our 41221, we already know: Our DMC will be marked by their AMC, so we have one less passing option from the back (in yellow box). Normally you’d have the full backs available (but they’re marked) OR the 2 MCs available (but they’re too high up the pitch) ... ... so who should our DC pass to (white arrows)?! Answer: He passed it back to our GK. Not good. So we lack passing options from the back (vs an opposition AMC). Key Issue #2: Our B2B + IW attack the same space. As the opponents don’t have a DMC, instead one of their MCs will ‘tuck in’ to a DMC position in front of their back 4 when defending (black arrow), so our MC on that side will have more time + space than normal (white shaded area). However, as our AMR is an Inverted Winger, he’ll also cut inside (blue line below). So our B2B midfielder has time + space, but can’t dribble forward nor play a through ball - Why? As there’s no gap between opposition DL + DC, because our AMR has drifted inwards. As a poster said above, your B2B + your IW are trying to take the same space. Not good. Key Issue #3: No supply to the Winger, nor taking advantage of the space he’s created. In the screenshot above, you will notice our AP will drift centrally into the the AMC space when we’re attacking. As the image below shows, this means there is no-one in our MLC position to supply the AML / Winger. So our Winger hangs out wide, with no supply, pulling their DR wide - this means there is space inbetween their DR + DC (red shaded area below)! ... But our MLC is an AP and drifts centrally, so cant take advantage of that space. Stats Our DMC was mostly marked out of our build up play (McTominay’s 10 passes) Our AML / Winger barely got the ball (Rashford’s 3 passes) + our DL had the same issue (Shaw’s 7 passes). Most of our play went through our unmarked MCR (Pogba) + our IW (Greenwood), even though they kept occupying the same space. Our AP barely contributed defensively, perhaps not the best role vs better teams. Scoring Goals In terms of scoring goals, all four goals from this game came from set pieces or long shots (Inc. one deflected long shot): Against Weaker teams - you’ll get lots of corners, free kicks & possession outside the box for long range shots. So purely through a numbers game, you’ll score goals. Against Stronger teams - you’ll get less of all these set pieces + long shot opportunities. So your team struggled to score, as they have no / few other common patterns to score from. Suggestions So against 4231s, you need more options to pass out from the back - I’d suggest inverted wing backs (IWBs) + the more cautious ‘Anchor‘ role vs. stronger teams. better role combination on the right side - either change your AMR to a Winger / IF ... or change your MRC to an AP or normal MC role. better role combination on the left side - either change your Winger to an IF (if you want a 2nd ST) or a IF [edit: typo, meant to say “or a IW”] (if you want more through balls ... or change your MLC to a B2B or normal MC role. Example - at the very least, swop the two MC’s roles (AP on the right, B2B on the left!) with a DM / Anchor behind. Extra Advice: aerial decision - would you’ve got a massive aerial threat up front, you need to better supply our Wingers (plural!) using either CMs or B2B (not APs who drift centrally). Otherwise change your ST’s role. different ST role - if you’re also playing an AP, don’t play a CF nor DLF up front - as they’ll occupy the same space. If you’ve got a fast striker who moves into the channels, play an AF for example. Width - If you play both IWBs + IWs / IFs, you probably want to change your width to ‘normal’ otherwise you’ll be too narrow everywhere. Overlaps - Unless your right WB is your best creator, turn off ‘wait for overlap’, as it’ll slow down your wingers play as well. EDIT - vs stronger opposition, if they play an AMC, then change your DMC to an Anchor, to keep some defensive protection as your using ‘all out pressing‘ but they have an AMC to mark. If the opposition play without an AMC, then MAYBE keep the DM or even a BWM in that DMC position, as they don’t have anyone to Mark (though I still love the anchor). Summary Does this make sense? I can see why you dominate weaker teams + struggle against stronger teams. Let us know what you think ... 😄 ... and crucially let us know what works for you!

  6. Hi! I wish I had shared this tactic much earlier. But I've had very little time to test the tactics for an entire season. Our second child was born this year, so you probably understand.. ;-) Back to business. Don't use this tactic if you're looking for goals. No, in fact this tactic literally kills matches. Usually you win with one goal difference, but on the other hand you hardly concede any goals. In fact, your opponent hardly gets any chances. Defensively, this is the strongest tactic I've made. Philosophy: My goal was to create a very solid tactic that would work against both small and large opponents. Nice if you win 6-0 against a small team, but then if you lose 1-0 against a big club it is of no use. So the system had to be rock solid, but at the same time strong enough to win matches. Furthermore, I did not want to make any transfers in the first season to see to what extent this philosophy was applicable to the available players. My only requirement was a complete striker, so I ended up with the Spurs. For the best possible development, you train the players in the desired position. The formation: Instructions: Results: Still furious about this one loss... I hope you guys like this one!

    Some poor soul was more than likely paid next to nothing to make the t-shirt I’m wearing. Thousands of children risk their lives every day and get paid next to nothing digging for the minerals required to power the device I’m typing this out on. Do I care? Well yes I’d say I do but clearly not enough it would seem. Plenty stinks in this world and unfortunately we all just turn a blind eye to most of it. It’s at the stage where non of us can even attempt to take the moral high ground.

    Hope this is interesting - I've found it useful. Here's a visual to show the top attackers (so far this season): Shows why Sane should be (at least) 'Attacker of the Year'. Ignoring potential, shows why Grealish, Fati + Tielemans' performances this season are underrated. Shows Busquets has been as effective as Messi + Son (!) Shows Leao and Pedri have been awful. Note - have only included Strikers + Midfielders (so no wingbacks!), plus only for those with +10 combined goals + assists so far. Have the overall image - plus one per team in spoilers. What does this show? Look at the top right bubble. That's Sane. He has a massively high average rating this season (~7.7) so is far to the right. Plus has scored or assisted +1 per game (35 goals + 20 assists in 50 games), so his bubble is towards the top. Plus his bubble is slightly bigger than Salah's - because he's scored/assisted 55 goals, while Salah has only 36. That's why Sane should be 'attacker of the season' - while Leao and Pedri on the other side should not! 1. Sandwich Army 2. DAMWON 3. DanEnglish 4. Yung Kings 5. Vice City 6. Blue Star United 7.

  12. Season 16 (Part of it, anyway) Just an update. Gravenberch: Goals (so far): 26 (Club) + 9 (International) = 35 Overall: 2002 We reach the 2k!!! As expected. I have halted the career here as I want to try a few different things. I'll be keeping the save though and may go back and carry it on at some stage. As much as I've done this challenge for myself, it's been great having you all follow and comment. So, thank you. @Rob you challenged me to a 2k strikerless. Even though I knew you were joking and I completely wrote it off at the time. Consider it done! 😁😁

DAMWON 9th - now eleven points from top, but with a huge 3 games in hand. @d e m a r a i have been struggling outside the top 7, but their improved form, trophy win 🏆 + 3 games in hand gives them hope. Sandwich Army 3rd - now just one point from top, with no games in hand. @broodje kip are surely top 4 contenders, but also have a wildcard element which means they could be title contenders or finish in the Europa League spots!

  21. Hello and welcome to my latest career, after a year of picking players I was unsure of, I’ve decided to go with one of the best youngsters on the game for my split 1kc. This all started when @Rob smashed out a couple of these careers but dominated with Pipi and I know I won’t get near that score but it seemed like a fun career to go for. How he looks: So I decided I couldn’t go Manchester United for a long term career, so I decided to go my favourite team to go on this years FMM and that team is Barca, as you get plenty of money and it’s a huge rebuild which I love. And after taking too many risks with careers I fancied just going a bit “easier”. Anyway I’ve finished season 1, I will be back later with the first season update 😁

  22. Hello and welcome to my latest career where I’ll be attempting to hit 1000 goals with Lorenzo Colombo. After finishing my Hagi career (I still have the final round up post to do) I debated what to do next. I then started further testing the Hagi tactic and even started another 1kc split save with a very good German midfielder but that was never really meant as something I’d post. I started thinking that I could try to do a 1kc as it’s a challenge I haven’t completed since the 19 version of the game. I was looking through the player options and noticed young Lorenzo who I’ve used a few times on other saves as a backup player. He was never fantastic on these saves but pretty good and I’d like to think he’d be good enough to be able to reach the target. So, I had my player but didn’t have a tactic so I set about on some testing to see if I could get something half decent going pretty quickly. I built a mega team at Real Madrid and used Lukaku as our striker to see what I could get out of him. I thought I’d first try something similar to the tactic I used with Moise Kean on the 19 game as I felt it would be great if I could get that working on this version of the game. We played the first few games a few times, I tweaked a few things and it seemed to work pretty good, albeit after only a few games and with one of the best strikers and squad imaginable. Nonetheless I felt there was enough there to give it a go with Lorenzo and that is exactly what I’m going to do. I decided just to start out at AC Milan, which is a bit boring as I’ve been in Italy a lot recently but I prefer the idea of starting at the club he starts at. Here he is anyway and he looks pretty good with no real weaknesses. I’m literally going live here too as I’ve only just played out the friendly games, so this could end up being an embarrassing disaster and if it does then I do apologise. Thank you for reading and I’ll be back with more later once I’ve played on a bit.

    As you all know - its hard playing other 'Vibe teams', plus it's even harder doing so playing 'away'. So the analytics below help identify which Vibe teams should rise & fall in the table - as some have to play more Vibe teams than others, and some do so more often away from home ... Should Rise in the Table: DAMWON (in 7th place right now) - has mostly home games remaining vs Vibe teams + averages 1.7pts/home game so far. Leeds City (6th) - has ONLY FOUR games remaining vs Vibe teams, so will play more bottom half teams instead. Out on Bale (2nd) - has mostly home games remaining vs Vibe teams + averages a huge 2.3pts/home game so far. Should Fall in the Table: DanEnglish (in 3rd) - has a huge 7 Vibe games remaining + is performing poorly at home vs Vibe teams. Kun's Army (in 1st) - also has 7 Vibe games remaining + is even worse both at home & away vs Vibe teams. Plus below is the full results list of Vibe vs Vibe league games so far... (note: H = home win, A = away win, D = draw)

So i came up with one last content before fmm22 comes out. @Ian @Rob @smoggy90 @Ashez @Rich @broodje kip @Scratch really glad you guys are still here, really enjoyed your contents. So let me introduce my career, i'll bringing four english boys to juventus, turin. So let's meet them MASON GREENWOOD He is no stranger here amongst us, especially me, i've been using him since he was 16, literally every season, especially in 1000 and 1500 goals challenge. He's pacy, shoots with both feet and massively improves every time. PHIL FODEN Everyone knows, arguably one of the best young midfielder in the game, i've used him in the past and he's really good. Can score and create chances. JADON SANCHO The young english prodigy, words cant explain how massive he is, he is currently having a slow start in manchester utd, but that's understandable. MARCUS EDWARDS Never really used him, so i dont know how good he'll turn out to be, he's still 21 so i believe he has a lot of improving to do, i'm really expecting big things from him So anyho, i'll be attempting 1000 goals with greenwood, 500 goals and 500 assists with sancho, foden and edwards and lastly 1500 goals with greenwood and sancho So stay updated SEASON ONE COMING SOON

    Part 2 of 3: TEAM REVIEW Whose thriving + whose just surviving ... ? Blue Star United Now 1st - top of the table, but other teams have games in hand on them. @geordiekrispy are goal machines, but concede a lot too. Surely are top 4 contenders + potential title challengers?! Vice City 6th - now five points from top, with a game in hand. @Victor77 will likely qualify for Europe, but can they push into the top 4?! Yung Kings 8th - now eight points from top, with no games in hand. @YungGaffer has been struggling outside the top 7, but exceptional recent form gives them huge hope of climbing the league table for a better end to the season! Part III soon (whenever I have time. Later today?)

    @Titjes - potentially one mistake in the update - I think @Kun Aguero / Kun’s Army should have their heal bonus at end-Jan, as they scored 16 goals in 8 games. Unless I’m mistaken, it’s the “2-3” win that may have deceived you. Poor guy needs a break - especially with Lewandowski out injured! - EDIT - no - I’m wrong. Stupidly counted 1 goal from their 1-0 loss, my bad. @Rich you’ve had so many home games in Jan! As Away games is where we drop points, I’m hoping your March is only Away games! 😂 Plus your goal difference is massively boosted by that last 7-0 urgh. @YungGaffer / Yung Kings has a great month! 6 wins + 1 draw in 8 games. Improvement! @d e m a r a i / DAMWON went even better and won ALL of their games this month - though again they were mostly at home which helps, but still 8 (?) wins is amazing. Poor @broodje kip / Sandwich Army ended the month with THREE away games vs Vibe teams, only managing one draw + two losses. Ouch. Still got the heap + morale bonus which should help. EDIT - just noticed that @d e m a r a i / DAMWON have only played 18 games (two less than most of us). If he wins those 2 games in-hand, then he’s joint-second! Leap frog 🐸 !

    Game far too easy

    So you insist on being Liverpool. You refuse to sell any of the good players. But you want the game to be a challenge. In 2 seasons Liverpool won the Champions League and the Premier League. In that time they played 110 games and only lost 15 and won 79. If anything, not dominating would be more unrealistic than what you're complaining about.

    Kun's Army: The Youth Project After a busy summer transfer window for Kun's Army, it's now time to introduce the Kun's Army Youth Project! The Boss : A midfield maestro from Barcelona, a well-proven player on the pitch, but does Xavi has what it takes to be a manager? Xavi favored a 4-1-2-2-1 formation, and this is the lineup I'm expecting him to play. Lewandowski still the sole striker upfront, but I'm expecting Abraham to get some play time. Bamba and Diaby at left and right wing, with Zaha and ASM as backup. Hojbjerg and Maddison to start as the 2 new CM with Praet, Pjanic, Reyna, and Golovin as backup. I don't have much options at the CDM position, so fingers-crossed for a injury-free season for Ruben Neves who was one of the star player last season. Basically the same lineup at defense, with Bonucci being replaced by Lucas Hernandez. (Or maybe a new signing?) Season Objectives : Obviously I won't be expecting myself to win the league with this team, so my expectations for the season will be to finish in Top 4, still a very ambitious target indeed. Anyway, as long as Xavi didn't get sack in game, I'm happy with any results. 😂

  42. Season 1 Here we go with the opening season and I’ll start with the transfers. Transfers Milan have a good few decent youngsters and I was determined not to go overboard on the transfers so we ended up going largely with what we had with just a few key players coming in; Carrillo - Brought in primarily to mentor Lorenzo to hopefully bring his aerial up a bit. Fabinho - The squad seemed slightly weak in the central midfield area, so he was eventually purchased to hopefully plug that gap and he can also be used at centre back if required. Bernardeschi - I wanted a left winger with good crossing and he seemed like the best option. Spinazzola - He was bought mainly to share the left wing back role with Hernandez but he can play on the right too so a nice player to have. I ended up with this as our preferred lineup. I wasn’t overly happy with Leão as a winger as he’s more of a forward but I couldn’t see the value in offloading him as he’s not valued too highly at this stage. He’s too good to be a backup to Colombo though so I decided to try and train him up as a winger. I’ve got two BBM’s here too which does make you think they may get forward too much and pinch goals but it doesn’t always pan out that way and I’ll be hoping it doesn’t here. I am a sucker for an AP in the CM line though on this year's game so there is the temptation there to change one of them to that role and perhaps make the AP further forward just an AM, but I’m determined to give this a chance at least. Team Results We won nothing and ended up finishing in second place in the league which I was happy with as we’d struggled at times. I suppose we went far in both cup competitions too but it would’ve been nice to have won some silverware, suppose there’s always next year. Fixtures You can see our struggles looking at the fixtures with a few poor spells in the first half of the season before we finally got ourselves together and had a somewhat decent run in. Lorenzo Colombo He started very well indeed and had scored 20 goals in his first 12 games. We were in the Europa League which kind of helped but it was still promising. He couldn’t keep that up though and ended up with a return of 38 goals in 39 games, which was a bit frustrating given how well he’d started. Injuries Just an in-game injury that kept him out for a couple of games and a little injury towards the end of April. Apart from that he missed a good few games due to tiredness as the schedule was too much for him. He’s really improved and we’ve got some green in the right places. Manager Final Thoughts A slightly frustrating season in truth but I suppose Lorenzo has shown enough to suggest he’s got what it takes and hopefully things can only get better for the team as well. I think I’ll be looking to make that slight change to the tactic that I mentioned further up as I think it may help us at least in terms of team results, so I’ll need to do a bit of work in the transfer market as our central midfielders aren’t playmaker types. Score Lorenzo Colombo Season 1: 38 goals in 39 games Thank you for reading.

  43. Hello everyone, with my first ever post I want to share with you my 4-4-2 tactic that won me everything in a very short time span with Werder Bremen. I am a veteran of the pc version playing the game for over an decade. I had countless saves with countless tactics and of course countless hours of joy. So it came naturally to me to do some experimenting on the mobile version and this tactic is the most effective and yet realistic way to play on the mobile engine I so far could come up with. Let's dive right into it: Formation Obviously my team wasn't this stacked from the beginning. The first few years I even set myself the challenge to just do "realistic" transfers and only transfers of players who my scouts would find. So the first CL-title I pretty much won with the core Werder Bremen team - which were rather average players. After that I just decided to have some fun and buy overpowered players. Important Attributes per Role Role Attributes (From Most to Least Important) CD Pace, Aerial, Tackling, Strength, Positioning, Decisions, Teamwork, Aggression WB Crossing, Positioning, Pace, Tackling, Decisions, Passing, Aggression, Teamwork RP Creativity, Passing, Decisions, Teamwork, Shooting, Movement, Stamina, Strength W Creativity, Crossing, Dribbling, Technique, Decisions, Movement, Pace, Teamwork, Passing AF Movement, Aerial, Shooting, Technique, Decisions, Strength, Pace, Teamwork DLF Movement, Pace, Creativity, Decisions, Shooting, Teamwork, Aerial, Passing, Creativity, Strength Note: I value Decisions, Creativity and Teamwork a lot. Especially Creativity seems to be very important for middlefielders. Teamwork makes them press more effective and Decisions is just from my experience overall the most important attribute in for FM games, so I just assume it is the same for mobile. Shape Note: Creative Freedom needs to be adjusted according to the Creativity of your middfielders. Average Creativity of Middlefielders Creative Freedom Instruction <12 Disciplined <14 Balanced >=14 Expressive Either way with Disciplined you will concede fewer goals. So if you are looking to be as solid as possible stick with Disciplined. This is especially valuable if you are coming from an underdog position and want to loose as few games as possible (generally more draws). Defence Note: If you have slow centre backs put Defensive line on Balanced. Attack Set Pieces Attacking DLF - Attack Far Post AF - Attack Near Post DLF - Attack Far Post AF - Attack Near Post Defending Note: Make sure all 4 defenders are staying back when you are having set pieces. Else you will concede a gross amount of counter goals. You can get away with your WB taking the set piece. But you cannot get away with bringing your DCs forward // Make sure that your best aerial striker (which should be your AF) is set to "Attack Near Post" for your corners. Accomplishments Titles with Werder Bremen Note that in the first years I was still experimenting with tactics and only did transfers I considered "realistic". After winning CL and League for the first time I just bought the best players for fun. I will update my accomplishments. Maybe start a save in the premier league with an underdog and see how it goes. I would be very happy to see your results with the tactic 😊 Thank you for reading and best regards

  44. Another three season update here guys and I’ll keep it fairly brief as it’s mainly just plugging away through the seasons. Season 10 A good season for the team as we won everything, McKennie scored two and also missed two penalties in the CL final. We also got USA to the World Cup semi final and we took a 2-0 lead before losing 4-3, however McKennie scooped the best player award. Season 11 This season saw us lose the CL final but win everything else. Also I was offered a position on the board, Ronaldo finally retired and we saw my son Alex Smog graduate to the squad (a very average looking right back). We also won the Gold Cup with the USA where McKennie racked up 8 valuable goals. Season 12 A strange season where I tweaked tactics to try and accommodate McKennie’s advancing years and then just ended up going back to my original tactic! It meant we lost a few more games than usual and conceded too many. So after 12 seasons we have the TT in the bag and McKennie has broke 900 goals so I’m fairly confident if he stays injury free another two seasons may do it, especially if I keep the USA job. As soon as he hits 1000 I’m tempted to see if I can get the split 1k with Reyna as he should be on 500 assists by then, it’s just the goals where he may fall short. Thanks for reading.

    For me, it'll depend on how Europe goes and if I've got a big enough squad. With no heal/morale boosts this season injuries are going to be an issue.

    Wow. Big signing. Varane was a top performer last year. Had a +7.35 rating from his first 20 games last season (see image) ... ... but then dropped off from February onwards, with his average dropping down to only a 7.20 rating after all 34 games. A quick bit of maths suggests that means Varane got a <7.00 average rating in his final 14 games. So who got the best deal here? Lets wait & see how @Victor77's defence performs, and how @Rich spends his fortunes.
