FM19 Changed Our Playing Style – WFO1

In this episode…

We’re discussing the main changes the new Football Manager release (FM19) has brought to the way we play the game.

Key changes to our play:

Sam –

  • Less aggressive
  • Less involved in training
  • More reliance on pre-set tactics – adjusting as needed to team


Mark –

  • More involved in individual training, beginning to get involved in overall training
  • Looking more to develop young players
  • Less reliance on building a tactic from basics. Now using pre-set, with very small tweaks to suit individual players
  • Slowed down gameplay between pressing continue – due to more in depth training etc
  • Looking at restructuring staff from day one, rather than letting contracts expire and re-building slowly over time

Our FM19 saves:

Sam – Has gone to Belgium to play as Standard Liege, with a decent degree of success mid way through the season. His reason was simple, he wanted a change from the usual UK or Germany saves he’d been focused on in the past.

Mark – Has gone with Sunderland, with one goal – achieve promotion to the Premier League. For further details on this save go to, where Mark is blogging about this Sunderland save – read the introduction post HERE.
