Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

Yeah this is a huge improvement. I play a Balanced Attacking style and now it actually feels like Defour, Motta, Kucka can pass well whether it's long or short, the team actually attacks and wingers/wide mids/wingbacks run at defenders and can beat them and put a cross in, instead of turning back to pass it off.

Just produced a BRAVE defensive counter attacking 2-1 win over Inter in the Cup, they pummelled me in normal time but BORRIELGOAL scored to take it to extra time and he scored again to win it.

Also the player and opp specific instructions actually seem to work, players mark who they're told to and don't wonder off.

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

yeah i conceded and drew 1-1 away (pretty good, only the 2nd team to draw with city) from a skrtel mistake. but i didn't feel cheated by it. it was a dumb mistake (he rushed out to try and intercept the pass) but it seemed like a mistake that would happen. reina didn't flap at the ball, and i also noticed that the corners/crossing were actually mixed. usually they all went to about the same place, but some were long, some short, some floated, some drilled. big improvement.

also like the fact that the opposition doesn't automatically become superhuman if they concede. beat academica 3-0 with 16 shots to 2 and 58% possession. after i scored my first (borini) they didn't instantly bring some sort of superhuman effort to pepper the goals for 15 minutes and score. instead we were able to push on and score a second through suso before borini killed the game off. usually playing your subs (started coates, borini, sterling, shelvey and enrique in place of first teamers) means an automatic loss no matter who you play. good.

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

Have noticed two very silly defensive mistakes in my first 2 games. First one was the defender stood still, striker came in with pace, took the ball off him and shot into the corner. Second was the fullback passed back, keeper onto the defender, who passed it onto their winger. Maybe not a bug or a game problem, and more just down to attributes. But still weird.

Other than that, it seems fine and set.

Just ripped Dortmund apart 4-1 at home. Bale had a absolute stormer, one of his goals echoed the goal he scored at Old Trafford against Man Utd earlier in the season!

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

Does seem they've removed bits of the '30 shots 1 goal' thing they've had running for a few seasons. Just converted every single chance against Hearts (as Rangers). Scored 50% of the chances vs Betis and about 33% vs Partick Thistle. Will give another few games before jumping to conclusions on that, but if it has been fixed (and 30 shots, 1 goal in up to 15 games a season, unrealistic), then its definately a quality of life fix.

Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*

I played 2-3 games last night on my united save, seemed much better even if chelsea did beat me in one of those.

Probably gonna start a new save now.

FM12.

I've just got the update and in my new game with Arsenal, Vermaelen, Koscielny & Mertesacker have all been fucked over by injuries in the first 2 pre-season games.

I let Djourou out on loan to Lazio but I've signed Alderweid from Ajax and Verm is back soon enough. Kos should be back early in the season.

I've also brought in Strootman & Danny Simpson. Chamakh & Santos have been sold, but the injury list is massive. It was bad enough at the start with Diaby, Wilshere, Rosicky, Sagna, Frimpong etc. This is going to be a challenge. Fortunately I love a challenge.

I like a challenge too, its just im getting bored with my current ManUtd game as I've just won my second league and champs league double. Wanna see if the new ones worth it.
