Complete forward as target man

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 

Long time reader here and a fan/player of the game for many many years.. :)  Today I'm asking for some help about the target man options. 

I havent played with a target man for quite some editions, I usually use other type of strikes, partially because there barely are really good target men and because the teams I usually play with dont have any. 

But this time United bought Lukaku and I want to play him as a complete forward but use him as a target man, if that makes sense. I remember years ago there was an option ingame where you could basically select anyone as your target man or playmaker. I just cant find that anymore for the life of me though, is it gone?

Since I basically put my wingbacks and keeper on long kicks to my target man, but I cant specify who my target man is.. 

Any feedback appreciated!

Welcome to the forum.

Yes it's gone.  The only role now defined as a "Target Man" is the Target Man role.  Other roles can act in a similar manner to the Target Man if you check their Player Instructions (eg., the Deep Lying Forward) but don't come with the "ball magnet" effect of the Target Man.

You could try using the target man role, and then adding in PIs a complete forward would have (roam, dribble more, more risky passes, etc.) Some of those might be unavailable for the role though, haven't used a target man in ages so I'm not sure.

Back in FM13 I had a monster regen named Isaac Essilfie who I played as a CF/S set as target man, and he just dominated games, so I can relate to what you're trying to do.
