    Was it LMA Manager that allowed you to use pre-set tactics based on some of the best teams in history (Brazil 1970s, Holland 78, Liverpool in the 80s etc)? Never really used them but it was interesting to see how the sliders were set up. I remember Liverpool being boring as sin - ultra-slow, keep possession etc.

    Yeah, I never used them either, but was an interesting feature.

    I think I had to buy one player that cost me about 2k because most of it was in my club. There's a thread on the fifa forums that try's to second guess it and they'd predicted the Melbourne Derby so I'd bought a load of Melbourne players for 200 coins on Monday. 

    Ah that's clever.

    Only Messi has scored a goal for Argentina in the last 11 months. They're utterly horrendous.

    Which is absurd when you think:


    Icardi, Dybala, Di Maria, Pastore, Aguero, Tevez, Higuain, Salvo, Gomez, Acosta, Correa. 


    I mean, if they were losing games 6-5 or something because of how dreadful their defence is then you'd think fair enough. 


    But jesus Christ. 

    That is dreadful!

    I use futbin as a base for me to build my own teams for the sbcs, if you use the players recommend you’ll pay waaaay over their odds for most players/sbcs

    Ah I see. I'll have to have another look tomorrow. I've never managed to get my head round many 'advanced' SBC's.

    Download an app called futbin pal. There's solutions for Sbc's on there, it's a godsend.

    Just downloaded this dude, it looks helpful. But looking on the market, the prices of the players needed are quite extortionate.

    As poor as the senior's look, our youths at most levels seem to be doing well in their competitions at the minute. Hopefully this means a higher quality of youth is coming through and we see more English players getting minutes week in week out.

    Agree with this, our first team does look pretty awful. However our youths look very good, won 2 or 3 tournaments last summer and got quite far in another. They're also more exciting to watch.

    Well after a shocking day of squad battles (1 win from 4) I did the Hybrid League SBC and only went and packed Fabregas and bloody Lacazette! 

    Lacazette is selling for around 270k atm, should I sell him now or wait for the weekend league panic buyers?

    Just got Pjanic, Smalling, Bellerin and Antonio in the marquee matchups SBC.

    How much did it cost to do the marquee matchups?

    It's the old way of defending you just hold down x to tackle.

    Ahh I see. That would be helpful, as I was thinking a player would be awesome at this version if they can master the defending. I'm not saying it's bad, but I still miss most tackles before succeeding.

    I am currently on 15,000 points after 6 games on squad battles all on legendary my top tip would be too switch too legacy defending, I use a Serie.A team in a 4321 formation and just play a lot of one twos until a gap opens up, my right and left forwards score the majority of my goals.


    Ps. I find legendary difficulty a lot easier than world class.

    What's legacy defending?


    And has anyone else had a problem with their players kit numbers changing?

    This has been the best FIFA so far packs wise for me. And they are all from SBC's, Objectives and Squad Battles.


    Packed Griezmann, Oblak and best of all - Frank Rijkaard. 


    I've not enjoyed a FIFA this much in years as well which helps. 


    Is there any way to change the 6 minute half length on squad battles etc?

    Insane, best I got so far is TOTW David Silva and Gabriel Jesus... And I was buzzing with them, kinda deflating hearing about others luck lol

  12. Ok, this is a strange one. I was doing the start up sbc's and I got to the one where you have to change the LW & RW to LF & RF with 3 different leagues and nationalities... But I do all that and only get to 10 chem, not 12. And I've no idea why... Any ideas?
