    Good Evening 2kforever, Great post and crazy result. I just had exactly the same happen to me using the newly promoted Portuguese team Santa Iria. The betting shops suggested we were going to lose but instead this happened: This is an outstanding win. It helps again to give me confidence that both my System & Tactics are spot on. I would also recommend Santa Iria FC as a save. This location is absolutly beautiful and the club is really small and in need of TLC. Enjoy!
  4. Just want to say, thank you so much for this post! The time and effort you have put in to this is incredible. I loved every moment of this post and found everything was so well explained. I am a professed lover of Pep's Tiki Taka style but Klopps style is a close second and incoporates a lot of the Tiki Taks style, but to the extreme, such as pressing high up the pitch. I am sure this post will bring much happiness and you should be extremely proud of this work! I will be trying this style for sure! 😊😁
  5. Good Evening All, I am a keen FMM18 player and always looking for ways to help new players. This guide comes pretty late as FMM19 is nearly here BUT below shows in my opinion, the best wonderkids on FMM18..Enjoy. Goalkeeper A Surprise choice in Goal with David Raya as my pick. He is my weakest choice BUT he's young and has good, well very stats for a Goalkeeper at 21. Currently, at a smaller club, this player will flourish! Defender I was surprised by this choice but Chelsea man Matt Miazga is my choice. Heading,Tackling,Positioning, Decisions & Stamina are all very good and he is only 21! This guy has the talent to take John Terry's role as Chelseas dominant defender. Midfielder My Midfield choice is Thomas Lemar from Atletico Madrid. Like below, his stats speak for themselves but he can play in any midfield area and be a success. One to watch in the future..Remember the name... Forwards Man Utd's Anthony Martial is the hottest young forward on the game.His Stats are Excellent in all areas and he is only 21 yrs old. He has the talent to become a yearly golden boot winner.
  6. Good Evening All, I am a keen FMM18 player and always looking for ways to help new players. This guide comes pretty late as FMM19 is nearly here BUT below shows in my opinion, the best free buys on FMM18..Enjoy. Goalkeeper Weidenfeller is my pick for in goal. In fairness, he is not amazing but he is free, played internationally and has better than good stats. As a back up or GK for smaller club, Roman is a good choice. Defender The Italian International Davide Astori is my Defensive choice. Just because he is a Free, this guy can still cut it at any Major club in Europe - his stats are Excellent & better than a lot of players out there. Whichever medium/top team you are,IF you need a defender..chose this guy. Midfielder The Ex-Arsenal man is my pick for Midfield.He's older but the quality on the Screen shows, he is Excellent at crossing,dribbling & crestivity etc. If you can keep him fit and playing, this guy might just make an average team brilliant. Forward My pick for Forwards is Giuseppe Rossi. His Finishing is excellent but he is also pretty great with the ball at his feet, creating & moving in the right areas. If you need a Poacher, this guy is a great choice.
  7. Good evening all, Choosing the team I wanted to do another season in Serie A and decided to choose ACF Fiorentina. The club has been home to great players but has also come past adversity. They seemed the perfect club to see if i could improve them and get one up on Juventus. Stadium & Facilities As you can see below, Fiorentina's Stadium and Facilities are great. There Stadium is meeting the current demand & their facilities are 'Impressive'.I did request the board to improve all of these but this got declined Holiday & Assistant Manager As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below: Staff, Finances and Training The Staff, Finances & training were great when i first joined. I improved the staff by installing Bruno Maziotti as a new Pyshio, along with amending the training to intensive. The finances were positive and roughly £32m was available to spend which is good enough to meet the boards expectations but not good enough to seriously challenge Juventus. Tactics The Tactics were my usual Tiki Taka ones which i will cautiously say was a success. It did take considerable time to bed properly despite a winning start to the season. The DMC area was a particular problem as we saw players sent off regularly despite holding a no-tolerance 2 week fine punishment for it. The squad Below shows the transfers comming into & going out of Fiorentina. The squad was distinctly average in my eyes with few stand out names, it was also lacking in some Key areas such as CM,DMC and RM. Fiorentina did have a lot of young players who were not good enough at this level and were released or sold. The results The team finished 4th in the Serie A. This went back and fourth from 1st early on, to 2nd when Juventus found form to a dip causing us to end 4th. The expectation was to finish in a European spot so the season was a success and progress definitely made. In regards to this league, Due yo backing and results, Juventus are considerably better than every other team and catching them will be difficult. On a brighter note, We managed to win the Coppa Italia Cup. This a fantastic Achievement and one Fiorentina have not won since the 2000-2001 year.I thought we were solid & showed Character throughout the Cup - We deserved to win! Manager Stats League Stats
  8. This is a fantastic post guys! So well thought out and looked like you got good results from it. Although it alters from my version, I love this style and enjoy seeing it in any form. Very much looking forward to FMM19 now!
  9. Good Evening All, Whose tactic am i doing? Tonight I want to show you the tactic that Pep Guardiola developed for Man City. Pep Guardiola has been successful at every club he has managed and is a Student of the game. He currently holds a Win Rate in his career of 75.47% which is possibly the best in the world. This guy is a key reason i love FMM so much, his passion, skill and success make me want to manage. The fact he does all of this while playing beautiful effortless football is incredible. When was this tactic used? The Tactic I have done today is from the Man City Season of 17/18.With this tactic, Man City recorded a record-breaking 100 points!! Along with this, Man City also recorded an 84.21% Win Rate and also won the Carabao Cup!! Why did I want to copy it? I am a Manchester United Fan and do not hold much time for City, but in credit, they played some of the best football the Premier League has seen. As i said above, Pep is a student of the game which means he's always adapting his system to fit his Philosophy. Just thinking about replicating his genius on FMM 18 got me excited so I got online and studied. What is the tactic? First off, I got my research from 2x main sources shown at the bottom. Secondly, as i said above and Pep has said before, His Tiki Taka Philosophy DOES NOT CHANGE so my instructions replicate my "Tiki Taka Tactic" and the instructions I feel most accuratly copy his style.The system DOES change with Inverted Wing Backs who move central to provide even more passing options in the centre of the park and the 2x central midfielders are attacking players and move the opposition out of space so that the Inside Forwards are able to pick up the ball. The System & Philosophy can be seen here... Where have I tested this Tactic? In all honesty, it has not been tested properly. The only test I have completed is a Friendly of Man City vs Middlesborough using the tactic above and most common City squad. Belows video shows the result of this.. Hope you all enjoyed this! Take care and have a good evening. Stuart Research
  10. Good Evening All, Choosing the Career This was by far the easiest career i have ever chosen as IF i had a football heart, it would be with Manchester United FC. Ever since i was young and said to myself, whoever won this final id support and well, I have been a red devil since then. Theres been many highs and some lows but I love them and wanted to see if i could improve their current fortunes. Stadium & Facillities The Red Devils boast a World Class Stadium and Facilities. As Seen below, The training facilities are huge and kitted out with all the mod-cons a modern club needs. The Stadium, lovingly known as the 'theatre of dreams' has enjoyed so many incredible players and Managers. Holiday & Assistant Manager As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below: Staff, Finances and Training As you would expect of a club Man Utd's size, All the coaches are World Class and Gold trained. The Finances, which were vast £260m were maintained to a good level. The training was intense and focused on Technique to learn my system. Tactics The Tactics as viewed below is the same as my other saves. The squad did take a while to adapt to my new system. Along with the new players adapting to life in Manchester being under high pressure almost immediatly. The squad Arriving as manager, I scanned through the teams attributes and qualities. To my utter surprise, The central defence was by far the best position with bailly,smalling and jones all highly skilled. The Area's i struggled with were DMC'S and MC's as well as others. Some big money was spent but also a lot of quality, The statement of 'man utd are back' needed to be felt. The results To my immense happiness, Man Utd FC recorded their 21st Premier League Title! The table makes it look easier than it was and we spent most of the year in 4th, 3rd or 2nd. The title was only won after some shrewed management against some big teams at the end. In the Cups we did very good but fell just short in the Champions League and FA Cup, I would put this down to fitness around this time. We did win the Carabao Cup against Chelsea FC though which is excellent.The match felt closer than it really was as we scored 2x early goals and played Counter the rest of the season.

  11. Good Morning All, Choosing the career I looked in Northern Ireland at a club I could mange and found the basically named Sport & Leisure Swifts F.C. The club was in the lowest division and required developing. Could i be the man to get Sport & Leisure Swifts FC promoted? Stadium and Facilities As you can see, this club was small, very small with basic training and youth facilities. The ground only seats 1000 people and the club has an average attendance of 0!!!! No people come to watch them!!! Thats crazy!! I did ask the board to increase these but this got declined. Holiday and Assistant Manager As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below: Staff, Facilities and Training Sport and Leisure Swifts are a very small club with minimal facilities. This meant I came to the club with only an Assistant manager and had to buy us a Pyshio & Scout. Finances were kept in the Green due to cheap deals and training was made intensive. Tactics As with my other saves, my process as manager involves using my Tiki Taka system. The squad generally got on board with this although red cards and sloppy defending were also seen. Considering the size of this club, the way this squad adapted with all new players was amazing. The squad When i came to Sport and Leisure Swifts, the players were either Old or very low quality. Almost the entire squad was sold off and a brand new team bought. Luckily, most players were bought for less than we sold keeping our finances good. The result It was a positive year for Sport & Leisure Swifts FC with us winning the league. This was not an easy task with many stop-start moments.A great achievement considering the board only expected a mid-table finish. Manager Stats League stats
  12. You are correct Scratch99. I agree with everything you said but like testing how accurate the Simulation side of FMM18 is. Cheers mate
  13. Morning, This is a great question and one which has frustrated me. Unfortunatly, you can only see the managers formation without seeing their tactics. Does anyone else have a tactic to play the Wenger way? Kind Regards, SSolas
  14. In my search for Football Simulation gold, a question hit me - What if Arsene Wenger had stayed on as Arsenal FC manager? Arsene Wenger "was the manager of Arsenal from 1996 to 2018, where he was the longest-serving and most successful in club history". He implemented the first modern style training sessions and diets for players becomming a pioneer of the game. Although in recent times his popularity has dipped. So I edited the most recent FMM update to place Arsene back at Arsenal FC and simulated the 18/19 season with him. The thought of 'the professor' managing against Sarri, Guardiola and old foe Mourinho was tantalising. Has he still got it or was the right decision made? Manager Results I did snapshots of Arsene unemployed at the beginning and at the end of the season with no change at all. His FMM stats are very impressive with outstanding Adaptability, ambition, loyalty, professionalism & working with youth players. In contrast to this, his failures include working goalkeepers(explains a lot), discipline,financial control & motivation. To conclude these stats, definitely indicates Arsene prefers to work with players rather than lead through fear. Squad changes Below shows the Arsenal FC squad changes. Arsene has decided to keep the 4-2-3-1 with all rolls the same. This matches up with his managerial profile and how he prefered to play whilst at Arsenal FC although he tried changing this up in his latter years. Club Results This is the BIG section and Yes, Arsenal FC back under Arsene Wenger in 18/19 managed to win the Premier League & Europa League. You can see the Premier League was won by Arsenal FC with only a one point gap which is impressive and even better getting one over old foes Man Utd/ Mourinho. The Europa League final looks a tight one with only a narrow 4-3 victory for Arsenal FC. Club Transfers These are the transfers from the Wenger Era 2.0. Wenger brought 6x new players including RW, AMC, DC, & DMC's with the Winger Quincy Promes being the most expensive player bought at £45.5m. In true Wenger style, not many players left the club apart from a few sent out on Loan Deals. Season Results Below shows the seasons results under Wenger. A noticable victory is beating Man City 4-1 @ home as well as Liverpool. The worst loses were to Brighton & Newcastle who both trounced them away. League Statistics Hope you enjoyed this and please comment if you have any thoughts on it Take care!!!!!
  15. Good Evening All, Choosing the career I have always wanted to do a save with Borussia Dortmund FC. Seeing that bright yellow shirt when I was younger along with their style of football was always attractive.Bayern Munich have created a monopoly in German football but could I change Dortmunds luck? Stadium & Facilities So, Last night i looked on Google for top football stadiums and Dortmund's came up. The Stadium is beautiful and large holding 80000+ fans. In addition to this , I asked the board for facility improvements and they were granted! This means we went into the season with the 'Best' state of the art training facilities as well as top youth facilities. Holiday & Assistant Manager As with my other saves, my process as manager involves setting out my holiday stance and delegation as seen below: Staff, Finances and Training Facilities To start, I brought Erwin Lemmens to the club as my assistant manager, taking the place of a silver trained coach. The finances due to moderate signings and selling players was kept green which is great. The training was again quite intensive , which mixed with the state of the art facilities was really exciting! Tactics Below shows my Tiki Taka tactic which i used for Borussia Dortmund FC. The tactic worked well picking up excellent results. Players like reus were perfect for the inside forward role. The Squad First Off, I came into this save expecting to see a world class team who was well thought off and could immediatly challenge for honours - I was wrong. Infact, I found Dortmund to have a very average team with a few players such as Gotze & Reus who were better than the others - The team would need some serious changing. You can see the changes I made with some good free transfers along with some quality ones. The Results We Finished 2nd in the Bundesliga. This result was gutting due to how close we had come to knocking Bayern off their perch. The team were consisten throughout the year in every tournament and gave it their best effort, think those 2 points will haunt me. This being said, Dortmund had finished 4th last season so this was still a superb effort!! In the Champions League we did well, really well, reaching the Finals. In the finals we played a strong Real Madrid side who knew how to win. We went 2-0 down early and comming back was always going to be difficult, we pushed and scored but too little too late. We won the German DFB-Pokal Cup!! We had a tough time getting here comming through penalty shootouts and Bayern Munich. Even the Final was a Classis as RB Leipzig took a good 2-0 lead which required all of our Character and tactical knowledge(overload and fast) to eventually come out 4-2 Winners!!
