    I use this tactic right now http://www.passion4fm.com/football-...ics-emulating-pep-guardiolas-positional-play/

    I have played Chelsea for the community shield and defeated them with 3-1, and my first match against United we also won with 1-0.

    I have a lot of possession and a lot of shots on target, i did only bought Rodriguez from Wolfsburg so Monreal can move to CB if needed.

    Further we only have 67 million left to invest, I have tried to sign Aubemayang but almost impossible, I also tried for Lapore which was not possible they were asking for 50 million.

    Coquelin is a beast in this formation, and very important, further i needed to change the training for Giroud and Walcott to false number nine, instead of being a pure striker.

    Sanchez on the left Chamberlain on the right, with a midfield trio of Özil Caz Coq, I choose to rotate Caz with Ramsey.

    Laporte has a 35.5m release clause if you pay upfront.

    Okay, so is FM really all that? I've never played since I trialled Fifa Manager long time ago and found it really time consuming. Fun but really time consuming. Now I don't have any time limits for the next two months so thinking of giving it a shot.

    :lol: Damn, that should be a red herring for a guy like me. I may end up locking myself up and never leaving my room. I guess thats what krackpots sort of meant.

    Okay, so I'm watching that Lets Play thing....well, I'm tempted. I don't know :confused:

    I still find myself sitting on the toilet, giving imaginary interviews to imaginary journalists about my treble-winning Arsenal side from FM 2007. It had everything, that team.




    De Rossi-----Fabregas(c)


    Remember when Bale was a LB? Remember when Vela was the next big thing? Happy days.

    @4R5Emaniac Don't touch this game if you value your life.

    Vela makes me sad :( I used to be a big fan of Veloso when he was breaking through because of his awesome hair styles first and then I imagined him being Petit's heir as well. Similar profile of players.

    Class team, I remember trying to get De Rossi so many times back then but never managed to. Vela was a machine in this game though, unreal poacher.

    Seeing names like Akinfeev and Veloso is getting me nostalgic, ngl.

    He used to score an unreal number of headers in my game. Micah Richards was a proper baller as well. :lol: Something wrong there.

    The game always made some uncanny predictions, though. Back when Joe Cole was sixteen, in whichever edition of CM/FM came out that year he turned into a decent but not spectacular AM - and this at a time when he was being hyped as a future worldie. Had a few instances of players moving between clubs in the exact order they did in real life, too. Weird.

    You really need to play this game @4R5Emaniac. I'd be shocked if you didn't enjoy it.

    Could not resist a FM 2015 game over a long weekend.

    started with MK Dons, got them promoted, jumped to QPR, got them promoted, when it all went pear shaped.

    West Ham offered me a job and I settled for the long haul...well, successive defeats to Tottenshit and Chelski got me fired within six months of taking the job...now back in L1 with Birmingham.

    now my Wife is angry and I hate West Ham.

    Can't find a DL link to FM. Older versions but not the recent one.

    FM is notoriously difficult to crack. It's best if you donwload the demo, and try it, as it runs for about half a season with full features.

    If you want to buy the older version, i would recommend getting it off a site like G2A

    wound up at Arsenal via MK Dons, West Ham, and Birmingham.

    Almost didn't want to join Arsenal, because I get bored very soon after taking control of a big club.

    Yeah, Arsenal is always good for a first playthrough, but I go down to the real challenges after I dominate with them for a while.

    I move on to getting Leeds into the Premiership, or Nottingham Forest (which I'm very eager to do this year now that the lord has arrived), or I go to a different league that's dominated by one or two teams and make sure to get a third competing. It's always fun to do a long playthrough and then see how past clubs are doing with what you set up.

    I wasted four years getting Leeds back up to the premier league. I spent three years getting them promoted and then another making them stable. They finished 12th, which I thought was an overachievement given they were favorite for relegation. I spent the next window signing big players given the extra finances I had. I had initially planned to stick it out until I made them a top four club. Yet then I got a job offer from Wolfsburg and I was like "No, I have done enough. Now I must remove Bayern munich from their perch."

    Two years later they were sitting back in the championship in their regular spot. But Wolfsburg were eventually champions of Europe.
