  1. Personally speaking I’ve found this version to be the most challenging of the most recent years. I wouldn’t say it’s impossibly hard, but I’ve definitely had to work for success in my saves, as opposed to ‘buying an amazing IF and watch him rack up a ridiculous goal tally’ like a certain earlier version.
  2. Heh, yeah. I’ve found another one - Newly promoted Premier League Brentford are tracking a 30 year old Faroese TM with attributes that put him as a solid L2 player at best.
  3. Apologies if this has already been raised, but I’ve returned to FMM after a while. It seems like big teams have really lowered their standards in their scouting. This guy is wanted by Man Utd!
  4. They’re maybe not starting as high as you’d like, but I’m having a lot of fun with a Brentford save. Their facilities aren’t great so you get the ‘building the club up feeling’, but they have a good young team with some good prospects: Watkins, Maupay, Henry, Bentley, the DaSilvas and Mepham (til the March update).
  5. I’ve literally just finished my first season with Brentford, came second and won the FA Cup 😏
  6. I do think this is a problem with hidden attributes. I’ve had some older players who did a great job, but looking at their visible attributes they look like garbage. Unfortunately it’s hard to tell which players might be better than first appearances suggest (though I completely understand why they are hidden).
  7. It is annoying! I’m sure I don’t recall seeing it prior to one of the most recent updates, but unfortunately I have no proof of that, just a hunch.
  8. Hi Sebastian, I’ll do my best. Mid-game I’ll go into Tactics to make a change. If I change a players position or role and then go into, for example, Attacking Instructions and then return to Formations the change I just made has been reverted. This occurs in any of the Tactics sub-menus. It seems I have to make a change then click Resume for a change to be saved. So for example, if I wanted to drop a CM into the DM position and change the team to play Defensive, I would have to move the player, click Resume then press Tactics once play restarted to go back into Tactics to make the second change - I couldn’t do both at once because changes aren’t saved between Tactics screens. Does that make any sense? Im experiencing the same across multiple saves. Im using the latest build on an iOS device.
  9. Apologies if this has already been raised, but I’ve noticed that since the last update that tactical or substitution changes are not being saved before confirming to return to the game. E.g. Mid-game I go to Tactics and substitute a striker. I then go to Attacking options and select, for example, Play Through Balls. If I then return to the formation view the substitution has been undone. It also applies to positional changes. In addition, the bug presents itself if I try the other way and change the Attacking options first then make the sub. A workaround is to make one change then return to the game, then hit Tactics again to make the other change, but obviously not ideal given that frequently many minutes can pass before you’re allowed to get to the Tactics screen again.
  10. Thanks for the feedback. I’ve actually switched to a 3421 with a CM and a DLP behind an AP and an AM (with a Libero as well!) and it’s proving much more solid - some nice passing triangles and good coverage in both attacking and defensive phases.
  11. Thanks both. I've brought in Naby Keita as a BBM and am experimenting with BBM, DLP and AP with shorter and slower passing. I'll see how this works out.
  12. I'm doing ok. I've qualified for the Europa league each season, so I suppose I'm being a bit picky! But a lot of my wins are scraped 1-0s with a fairly low possession % and relatively few shots on goal. I think sorting out the midfield might be the thing needed to push into the Champion's League bracket.
  13. Hmmmm, interesting. To be honest I usually try to keep things as simple as possible and don't mess too much with the instructions - Use Control when at home, unless against a bigger team, use Balanced or Counter when away and leaving the rest at default. I've experimented with using a Narrow formation a little too. Mixed Passing, standard Tempo, etc. Perhaps its just that Hojbjerg, Lemina and Harrison Reed aren't the greatest!
  14. Hi all, I'm you might be able to help me. I'm enjoying the new version and have had reasonable success over a few seasons with Southampton, but something is nagging me - I'm having real issues with my midfielders. They're not getting particularly brilliant ratings, which I can live with to a degree, but they also seem to be performing poorly when viewed during matches. My preferred formations are fairly standard 4231 or 4411 and it seems that my midfield 3 are either too deep when attacking, causing the forward to be isolated; or too far forward when defending, leading to large gaps in front of the defence. In previous versions I've found BBM & DLP behind an AP to be pretty effective, but it doesnt seem to be working for me this time around. I'm wondering what roles people have been using? This is EME and I appreciate that there are certain variables based on what players you have at your disposal. Cheers
