    My Utd save on '18 has been built on 3 at the back. Managed to pick up Rugani for peanuts in January (11m ffs) so him, Bailly and Lindelof were my middle 3. I'd started on a 4-4-2 but was struggling to score, finding too many 1-0 wins and annoying 1-0 losses (so Jose). Bringing in Odriozola in that first window too allowed me to go to wing backs and just try and overpower teams (was a 5-3-2, with an AM), turned into a proper Keeganesque 'score one more than you' team.

    Finally in season 6 I've managed to convert one CD into a DM and go for a mental 2 at the back. Wanted to do this from the start and use Blind as a CD/DM hybrid, but could never get it to work. Have a young Spanish regen/unknown I picked up in season one who's finally come of age and is basically Busquets II, so just sits in that hole and stops anything coming through. It helps the rest of the team is absolute class so little gets to the back line, and picking up Kessie in season 5 to replace Matic was a dream move.

    For similar reasons FM had to remove stuff like players failing drug tests (not even sure that made a full release in the end) and bans for punching officials (that one did)
    FM doesn't even let real players have negative personalities; only regens.

    Quite encouraged that Bayern have reacted to my league win by chucking in excess of 150m at new players, as well as signing Federico Chiesa for 84m in the January window. I've had issues with previous versions of FM where the challenge dies after 2 or 3 seasons because the AI is ****ing terrible in the transfer market.

    The AI is definitely much better in the more recent games (as you'd hope/expect I suppose). Still not perfect, but miles better than what it was even a few years ago.

    Lacazette and Aubameyang score almost every game so that is the reason for it. Working nicely now although still behind Chelsea at the moment, why is it always them who are good on this? I swear City are always rubbish.

    This is a positive though.

    Last time I played the Bundesliga Bayern's transfer activity over 3 seasons was literally 'sign some backup striker from some other Bundesliga team for €10m'

    Which made it easy as **** to dominate after 3 seasons. This time round I've made improvements to my squad, but what Bayern are doing, combined with playing in the Champions League as opposed to the Europa League will be a hell of a lot tougher.

    Chelsea choked so won the league but a horrible turn of events in the Europa league semi-final saw us going out after finishing the game with 9 men and Rob Holding in goal. Not had such a stupidly fun few matches on FM for years.

    and then a ridiculous penalty shootout win against Chelsea in the FA cup final in which almost everyone missed (which they seem to all the bloody time)

    I was working in a charity shop today and found CM 2000/01. I'm really quite tempted to get it to recreate the Arsenal Invincibles.

    The preset tactics on FM19 (e.g. Gegenpress and Tiki Taka etc.) are absolute hot garbage.

    Does anyone else feel like they get awarded a disproportionately large amount of penalties on FM19?

    I guess I shouldn't complain, but I have had about 15 awarded to me over the course of a season, which seems a lot.

    lol and just to add weight to the previous post, just beaten Chelsea 3-0 at Stamford Bridge with Lacazette grabbing a hat trick of penalties.

    Gegenpress was fairly good in my experience. The rest are awful though.

    (To be fair, I haven't tried the default Gegenpress since the update, so they may have nerfed it).

    They definitely appear to have nerfed long shots.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for tactics which allow you to play nice football and win? (with a team that is full of players who are fast, good technically and great at passing)

    For some reason on FM19 the only permutations I seem to be able to come up with are "nice football and lose", or "horrible football and win".

    Trying to play attacking passing football through the middle of the pitch seems an impossibility for me. Seem to score all of my goals from crosses (headers) and set pieces, which isn't especially pleasing (especially given my Starting XI contains a combination of Asensio, Chiesa, Bailey, Dele Alli, Van der Beek, and Cuisance).
