Hello all, this is just really a post because I want to see what other people think of the idea of getting FM'd while playing this game. Just so anyone reading this knows I'm not great at this game at all and while I do know that a lot of the issues I experience are due to me not being very good at this game I can't help but sometimes think I've been FM'd, but I'm never really sure if its just a certain tactical oversight on my behalf or if the game has just conspired against me. What I kinda want to know is how many people believe in such a thing as being FM'd, what examples of it would be versus examples of someone just being bad at the game and how often you think you could be FM'd, if you think it even happens at all. Also if anyone had any relatively easy pointers on how to get better at this game I would really appreciate it. To say I play this a lot I'm pretty terrible at in game management and tactic creation, training and scouting and transfers I'm ok at but actually playing the game, not so much.
To me being FM'd is having loads of SOG's & the oppo scoring from one/two. I recall a Reddit screenshot a while back where one player had 50+ shots to zero, he lost 1-0 to an own goal. That's being FM'd.
Tactics wise there are many great tactics posted here. If you want to go down the route of loading a pre-designed tactic then I'd recommend looking at Knap's tactic table & pick for your chosen formation/situation.
If you are interested in delving in to tactics yourself then there are many an expert here with their own insights who can assist.
