  • :D thanks, we'll have to tighten up at the back, I think there is two major points of concern defensively, 1 is that the CB are too far apart on default settings so we'll have to reposition them over a number of games, as well as figure out how deep/far up the field we'll play, 2 is that the partnership of having both…
  • After working out the disappointment of losing the opening league match Halford brought his men to the Valley, London to play Charlton Athletic in the first round of the Carabao Cup, maybe not so much a welcome distraction given all of their attention will be on staying in the league, but Halford used the opportunity to…
  • The L1 season kicked off today, and it was oh so nearly a good start for new manager Greg Halford, the Dons fell behind to an early 2nd half strike from Fejiri Okenabirhie who had pulled away from Nesta Guiness-Walker at the back post to slam home his 1st goal of the season. Moments later the Dons equalized, Rudoni's…
  • Hey guys, just wondering for those who play a back 4 do you have any input or advice on the positioning of the CBs? I recall that during Closed Beta EA had tweaked the starting positions of defenders to allow more room/passing and running lanes for attackers, loads of my friends have commented they find it difficult to…
  • yeah, we are playing 4231 narrow so both him and Chislett and Mebude can play CAM/LM or CAM/RM plenty of pace and when he's on the ball he's not bad, obviously issues with his strength but you accept that being he is only small.
  • I missed this discussion, can you elaborate? Idk if I am barking up the wrong tree but with GA being mentioned in the chat, I have had a hard time making my defenders do what I want to do when the COM is in possession. I remember back on Closed Beta the 1st week? loads of users gave feedback about how open the…
  • After sending Zaki Oualah to Wycombe on a Loan to Buy, Halford moved for Experience. It was rumored at first the Dons were going for Harry Burgoyne from Shrewsbury but were put off by a large asking price for sign on fees, so they turned to Canadian shot stopper Jayson Leutwiler, a travelled experienced Goalie who has…
  • thanks buddy :) I think I am going to put this on my channel as per similar the Derby stuff, I might not be able to Cam simply because of time constraints but I can probably do audio overs each highlights. I will probably also provide match updates in here for those who cannot make it over to the channel proper. B) I've…
  • Hey, I actually did take a break over Christmas and New Year, the latest title update has funked with both my Oldham save and I am pretty sure my Derby one, it is playable but unfortunately not all my Squad #s are fixed, I have not yet decided if I am going to continue with Derby since I just started a new CM save with…
  • Yes :-) truth be told I actually like their football strip especially since it looks pretty iconic now with FM being the sponsor LoL :D :) thanks for the welcome back, I might be a little slower going with this one. I did actually have plans to go back to Derby and even do an Oldham save but for some reason the latest…
  • With the first match of the season coming up Halford has made arrangements for a couple of the fringe players to leave Wimbledon and go out on loan, in the very first week as suspected backup goalkeeper Zaki Oualah was sent to Wycombe on loan with an option to buy, then 1 week later Welsh CB Jack Madelin moved across the…
  • July Training Halford arrives early into the training camp, and immediately begins discussing all the routine week to week schedules with Ashley Bayes the Goalkeeping Coach, Robert Tuvey the 1st Team Coach and Tim Maynard the Physiotherapist. "Currently there are no first team injuries Greg, the players are in top…
  • So I just scrolled down after commenting and realized I had missed 2 other updates LOL (my bad) anyway I hope you don't mind the double post (sorry mods) but I wanted to comment on the additional updates. Newcastle performed admirably in the UCL away defeat to Real Madrid but any potential knock in confidence didn't exist…
  • Woah! Inter Milan splashing out over $200MIL on Rodri + Richarlison! Also Donny finally getting his move away from Old Trafford to Leicester City. I find it odd that in terms of progression there has been some regression by Ashley to just at least stay the course, however it is realistic in that financially he is focusing…
  • :o blimey! where to begin? lets start with that amazing 2-1 cup win over rivals PSV Eindhoven, a cracking match and adding to the drama of the sending off those after match press conferences are getting .. a bit spicy? :D Ten Hag is under immense pressure here as far as media scrutiny and now the added inclusion of two of…
  • Ah that is why the videos are important :D but since you asked; GK-Roos RWB-Byrne CB-Davies CB-Forsyth LWB-Buchanan CDM-Bird CDM-Shinnie RM-Jozwiak CAM-Sibley LM-Lawrence ST-Scott I believe instructions and tactics are derby's default 4231, Pressure on heavy touch team width:50 team depth:50 slow build up and possession…
  • thanks :D yeah, I try and post league tables every 1/4 of the season, the most recent table after 11GP was posted here last week (Oct 28) if you scroll down on page 1 of the thread you should see it ;) the next updated table will be at the halfway point of the season after 23GP :)
  • No problem lad, that is why I provide textual updates here on the forums too :) In making the episode content for my channel and providing both text updates I am trying to cover bases, feel free to jump in/out as you please and I appreciate you letting me know. :) ~Arlad
  • Hey Guys, having just posted up EPISODE 6 to my YouTube Channel it is time now for our October Update! Before I get into it just wanted to say a quick shout out to @Danimal5981 who messaged to enquire about my absence from the forums this week I have not been well with sore throat but I'm back now. Our games this time see…
  • I know friends who have dropped away from playing Ultimate/Legendary because it is ridiculously impossible to find a balance between true realism and competitiveness. I echo what was mentioned here about competitor mode, it just turns every player into a stupid freestyler :D you end up seeing guys like Shkodran Mustafi…
  • Wow! :o a refusal by Ajax to sell, indeed it looks like Ten Haag has positioned Ajax into a stature in Europe's Elite where a refusal from a club of equal or now below standing does make sense. I didn't envisage the storyline taking a twist for Ten Haag and Overmars to leave, with potential suitors circling like sharks…
  • I finally caught up, apologies but I have been away from the forums as I was sick :'( there is quite a fair bit to get into, I will say it was nice to see Man Utd pip Liverpool to title number 22 :) Stevie G held his side in the top 4 just finishing 2pts off City in 3rd, and the team looks to be performing brilliantly…
  • what are the main critical/high priority objectives set by the board? I think some game management should be used here to keep you in the job. ;) good to see you back posting after the sack. I am hoping for big things this time!
  • also what is really bad is that big teams tend to sell off their better players making it easier to win the league cos the COM AI doesn't replace like for like, it's not like Man Utd sell Rashford or Cavani and go out to buy Saint-Maximin and Kane :/ this is one of the areas of CM that is badly neglected. I know loads of…
  • well you can't really be relegated on FIFA from L2, so the only way is up :D
  • 11 wins from 17 and after a rough start from pre-season Thurlow once again making Wrexham competitive! only 17MP from 46 so a lot of football to play, is there money available to strengthen in January?
  • Oh man! I saw the shortlist and resisted scrolling down :D I was like *please sign Ugbo, please sign Ugbo* :p honestly it is such a Newcastle signing! shame Gerrard could not get the boys into a latter stages of a cup, maybe next year? :) Well in those UCL places and with 25 MP there is still 13 games left, I am positively…
  • thanks! yeah and if you ever have some free time over this wk'end I recommend checking out my YT channel where you can see the goals/highlights and how we're doing, I'm providing a textual update also here on this thread for those who can't make the channel :)
  • FIFA used to have players forcing moves (for a variety of reasons) but EA removed them, IDK why maybe to reintroduce them as 'new features' in next gen gaming LMAO
