    Default How do you use a target man or playmaker?

    Hi All

    I've read the online manual and it tells me (as it was in FM09) to tick the box if you want to use a target man or playmaker yet in the new tactics layout this option is not there, I can select who my target man is and how to supply him etc, by doing this does that mean I'm instructing my team to use a target man? There is not actually a button to say "Use Playmaker" or "Use Targetman"....or if there is I can't see it anywhere on my tactics screen (Not using convert to classic option)

    hope this waffling makes sense and somebody can clear it up for me

    Cheers

    No, if you go into your tactics and select a player to be 'Target Man' (as opposed to Complete Forward, Poacher etc, etc) then you will use a target man

    Same with playmakers.

    It's about the roles i guess,you should set your players as a target men for target men or deep-lying playmaker/advanced playmaker otherwise if im right you cant set "Use Playmaker" or "Use Targetman" in tactics

    Deisler26 beats me

    The options are there under team instructions if you are using the wizard. Change to Basic to see them at the bottom.

    Does anyone know is there a conflict or some problem if playing with both playmaker and a targetman? I'm playing 4-4-1-1 and my cm is the playmaker, and my st is the targetman with run onto ball.

    Thats my point Katarian they are there in Basic so what I'm asking is if I tick the box for Target Man to be my CF and supply to head that automatically instructs my team to use a target man, correct?
    in the old format you could highlight a "Use Targetman" or "Use Playmaker" box but on the new version that specific tick box isn't there....even though it refers to it in the online manual???
