Tactical Help Required bcfc


Recommended Posts

After watching my beloved Bristol City play I have been having problems trying to play there style in FM18 and would like some help from the community to see if I can produce there style in FM18.After many attempts I still cant get it right and just wondered if anyone can offer advice.

Now in real life Bristol City play a 4-4-1-1 looks like standard back 4 but the full backs push up.The central midfielders have one that sits deep and one that almost plays like a box to box with the 2 wingers staying wide and they never cut in.Up top they play a attacking midfielder whose job is to roam and cause havoc with a target man whose job is to hold the ball up and lead the line.

Style of football is to play fast aggressive one touch football,I would say the passing is a mix of short passing but never direct they also don't play with a high line as the cb are quite slow but very good in the air.They defend from the front and the am and target man seem to man mark the opposition cb with the wingers man marking there full backs.The closing down is very aggressive as soon as the opposition have the ball the players are in there face but I would say its more in the opposition half as when the opposition cross over the half way line its all about keeping shape.They also like to keep the width narrow and compact

Now to produce this in FM18 is giving me a headache especially up top as when I tell the am to man mark the cb I find he wont drop deep when were defending which means we get out fought in the middle..

This is how I see it in FM18 and this where I need the community help for advice.

GK-DEFEND

2X FB SUPPORT

2X CB DEFEND

2X WINGERS ONE SUPPORT ONE ATTACK POSSIBLY IN THE ML/MR SPOTS

2X CM ONE DLP DEFEND AND ONE BOX TO BOX

1X AM SUPPORT

1X TM ATTACK

STYLE OF PLAY CONTROL NOT SURE ABOUT THIS, WITH FLUID TEAM SHAPE

HIGH TEMPO

NARROW WIDTH

NORMAL DEF LINE

CLOSING DOWN MUCH MORE WITH GET STUCK IN AND TIGHT MARKING

EXPLOIT THE FLANKS WITH MIXED PASSING WITH RETAIN POSSESSION

NOW THERES A FEW IM NOT SURE ON SO ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREAT

There isn't a way to tell the AM to man mark CB when the ball is in front and trackd bacb to defense to when the ball is behind. PI narkbposition will nake the AM always mark CB, plus there are at least 2 CB.

The closest thing that I can think of, is Mark Tighter in Opposition Instruction on CB, then set press more in PI. This will make the AM go back when the opposition CB doesn't have the ball.
