Should they press? Should they restrict our opponents? How do we make them calm on the ball but also make a killer pass every two touches? Continue reading
The MLS is a league that even most hardcore FMers struggle to manage in, but here’s your guide of how to manage in the good old US of A!
I will be running through the drafts, trades, how the league is structured and much more.
In my previous posts I spoke about how I evaluated the squad at my disposal and then, how I shaped this squad into three systems.
Here I will look at how the season played out, then I’ll go into more detail about my usage of the 4-1-4-1 DM Wide, the 4-4-2. I’ll analyse how my attacks are built from the back, whilst also analysing the team in transition and also out of possession.
I’ll round off by analysing my usage of the 4-4-1-1 system versus Sambenedettese.
Score goals while not conceding any from counter-attacks or set pieces. Simple enough, right? Continue reading
With the new installment of Football Manager, everybody wants to become the best manager of all time. That will naturally take time in game and requires lots of effort from players. These guides will help you to accelerate this process whilst we do the leg-work for you and give you the best tips for 2019.

What wing-backs in FM19 are meant to do
Wing-backs in FM19 are meant to be simple: they run up and down their flanks non-stop. Where do they get all this energy? ‘They’re fitter’ isn’t a satisfactory explanation! Why can’t every player just be a superhuman who turns up everywhere?
Let’s take a closer look at wing-backs in FM19. Continue reading
I was actually amazed at how much money you can make from friendlies. This particular method is perfect for lower league clubs who would usually struggle with finances over the course of the season.
In this guide I will take a scenario where no friendlies are played after the season has started, and a club that play regular friendlies and look at the positives and negatives for both. I will select a club which don’t have the greatest of finances and go from there.
This sounds like a bold plan full of radical ideas. Please let me assure you that it isn’t. Coming up with your own plan for training in FM19 is rewarding, if you put all the options into context. To help yourself, try to incorporate the three main aims: developing, motivating and conditioning your players correctly. Continue reading
Football Manager 2019 will be out in less than two months, so it’s time to decide what league you should manage in. In this article, I will be suggesting five leagues you could manage in for FM19.
