    Contain strategy

    It's unreal, absolutely. You shouldn't be having so many attacking opportunities with a contain strategy. I really wonder whether this is a bug.

    Contain strategy

    It sounds like the AI was not being smart in knowing how to counter your Overload strategy. If anyone plays Overload against me, I switch to Counter, Fast, Wide and long passes.

    Contain strategy

    I remember using the Contain strategy when I was in charge of Torino back in FMM18. I managed to win several Serie A titles with it. I even raised this as a potential bug/issue in the official SI forums because it seemed to act more like an aggressive counter attack strategy than a proper containment strategy.

    Chat Contain strategy

    What is everyone's understanding of the Contain strategy? I just played a Champions League quarter final match away to Manchester United. They raced into a first half 3-1 lead so I switched my strategy to contain so to minimise the damage. I ended up drawing the match 3-3. I played my next fixture, which was a home Serie A tie to Inter. They took an early one goal lead and had a second goal disallowed for offside. I switched my strategy to Contain and ended up winning 4-2. I scored 4 goals by playing the most negative and ultra defensive tactic possible on FMM. I thought Contain was a strategy where the idea was to do everything to keep the opposition from scoring. So retain possession, don't try anything fancy, don't even look to score unless there is zero risk of conceding. However, in two matches I have scored 7 goals playing with Contain. What do people think?

    Player's attributes doesn't match his CA

    That is very true.

    Player's attributes doesn't match his CA

    I pay little notice to the star ratings. I have plenty of players who have anything from 2.5 stars to 3.5 stars for CA yet their attributes suggest they should have more stars. The stars also increase / decrease based on the amount of playing time they get. For example, I have Emre Can who has fantastic attributes for a ball winning midfielder / Deep Lying Playmaker. If I play him regularly, and his average form is good, his CA star rating goes up. If I leave hiim on the bench for a while, or if he hits a poor run of form, the star rating goes down. None of this however seems to affect his actual attributes.

    Could FMM Have some competition this year?

    I avoid any game that has IAP at the core of its game play. I also think there are plenty of other football management games similar to Soccer Manager 19 but there's nothing out there similar to FMM. That is an interesting perspective. Obviously FMM doesn't rely on, or need Vibe to be the quality game that it is. But having such strong community behind it, especially those in the community who continue to support it, provide essential feedback, and act as an informative resource for other players, well... I can't think of many other games that can point to that.

    Condition on latest update

    My Gareth Bale example wasn't about being injury prone per se. It was about how much exposure Bale had to the first XI at Tottenham and how he struggled to break through due to fitness and injuries. Harry Redknapp was seriously looking to sell him on with Birmingham as a potential destination. Instead (thankfully) he restricted the amount of games Bale had and ordered him to get into the gym and bulk up, which eventually made him more resilient in matches. The interesting thing about Michael Owen is that its almost the opposite. Owen was exposed to an enormous amount of games early on in his career but that exposure caught up with him as injuries plagued the later stages of his career. He had to adapt his playing style (because he lost that cliched "yard of pace") and play more conservatively. That said, even in his early 30s, Owen was still an excellent finisher of the ball and his movement and decision making remained world class.

    Condition on latest update

    In what way is it slowing down the experience? Young players will be hit hard by conditioning as they haven't fully developed into seasoned pros. I'm always reminded of a young Gareth Bale in this respect. Immensely talented but a massive lightweight who kept picking up injuries.

    game difficulty

    Just choose a formation that is based on your squad strengths. Start off with a balanced approach and maybe play defensive or counter for away games and only go attacking if you're playing at home and consider yourself to be the stronger team. There are plenty of guides on this site if you want something specific but just look at who your strongest players are and build a team around them. The Team Report > Squad Depth screen will give you good advice. If you had success with a tactic before the winter update then it should still be a good tactic. You will just need to consider rotating your first team a little more.

    What do you find difficult? Who are you managing and what level of coaching staff and facilities do you have?

    FMM19 Bug List

    I recently came by two transfer bugs. One is an old one and the other is one I've not seen before. The old bug: I offer a player up for transfer and receive a news item to say a club had made an offer. However, I am unable to accept it. I then receive another news item to say the offer has been accepted by me even though I haven't done this. I then receive a further news item to ask me to confirm the transfer but I'm unable to do so because the action button to confirm or decline the transfer is missing from within the news item. I now have this perpetual news item asking me to complete the transfer. The only way I can confirm the transfer is to go on holiday. New bug: Two clubs have made bids for my Advanced Playmaker who is valued at £27M. Both bids received are for £0. He has two years left on his contact, so he isn't eligible to leave on a free, and the news items detailing this potential transfer say both clubs are planning on making a bid close to his valuation. Why do I keep getting offers for £0. If I try to negotiate the value, both clubs will refuse to offer more than £0.

    Which would add more realism to the game. I'm with you on that one.

    Nah. Too realistic for my liking 😂
