    Hi, Johnny, I’ve been having some problems with FM.

    I recently started a save as Liverpool and went about the usual buying and selling of players/staff. I downloaded Darren’s tactic as well.

    However the game hasn’t seemed right. After losing my first four games in charge it seemed something was up so I played around a little bit and gave my Liverpool team some extra money. With this money I signed players like Edison Cavani, Stevan Jovetic, Neven Subotic, Marc-Andre ter-Stegen, Daniel Alaba and Isco. These players made Liverpool a strong side so I figured I’d give them all chance to mesh and also give the tactics time to sink in.

    In my latest match against Stoke the tactics were all on fluid or accomplished level and I fielded my strongest XI against their weakened side. I lost 2-1, making it seven straight defeats in which my team have scored just four goals and conceded fifteen. I like to play short passing football but in both the Stoke game and others I have noticed that balls are knocked long very often and that despite having a pressing mentality, my players never go in for a tackle instead either standing back or running just behind the player they are meant to be tackling. Finally, to make the game even worse, Stoke’s first goal saw both Peter Crouch and Michael Owen stood inside the six yard box when Jermaine Pennant crossed the ball. This would have been fine if my defenders were nearby, but these defenders were all outside the six yard box and not one player was playing either man onside.

    The list of teams my Liverpool team have lost against in order is: AGF (Europa League Minnows from Denmark) x2, Southampton, Stoke, Swansea, Fulham, Stoke. The stats after all these games all seemingly check out and were one reason why I was confused, but when it comes to the match engine, things just don’t seem right.

    Was wondering if you could offer any thoughts?

      How did you give your team some extra money?

      Secondly, there isn’t much you can expect after losing so many games in a row, player morale is probably abysmal by now, so you need to encourage them in a team meeting right away. If that fails, I guess you should start the season all over again.

      I agree that the match engine isn’t perfect but in my view the small flaws I’ve noticed do not really affect the performance of a team overall. If your team is good and the tactics are right, you should win games.

      • Dan Scutt

        It’s same with my Arsenal save. I decided not to sign anybody in the first season cos I actually think the team is good enough! But the match engine seems to have gone back to how it was when the game first came out with all the bugs! My defenders don’t seem to be tackling opposition players nd the keeper will run out to the player with the ball nd then just stand there while through opposition player runs past him nd scores! What made it worse is the fact I got beat away at Man City 7-2 nd away at Aston Villa 3-0 two results that would never happen! For me this is the worse FM for years with too many bugs

    hi there

    had a decent amount of succes with “Darrens Fluid…” tactic before the patch. But that changed abruptly.

    After reading a lot (!) about tactics and tinkering with the tactics myself my experience is this:

    The “new” ME apparantly favours 442-styled tactics with two physical strikers. Settings on attacking and very fluid, press more, hard tackling + man marking (even wingers and strikers), short passing…have a go yourself – it’s actually pretty easy to set something decent up with the tactics creator and tweak it.

    Oh, and avoid the default settings unless you want to use long combinations of shouts.

    As I said this is my experience and several others across the forums.

    Sorry Darren…the patch 13.2.1 more or less killed your tactic ;-)

    Does anyone know, when the january transfers 2013 will be introduced in the game? When will the update with the january transfers come out? Also, once it does and if I have started a game already, will those new transfers show in my save or do I need to start a new save, so I can use the new players?

    • andrew

      Usually the changes in the game will also work in the saves. This does not apply to the new transfers. If you think about it this would mean that if you had bought Demba Ba in your save, the patch would snatch (sorry) him away and he would suddenly be a Chelsea player.

      As always I expect SI to recommend that you start all over again when the february(!)patch is out.

    Thank you!
