You upload to mega or any filesharing host.

Hmmm that's odd.

Yeah, but as I said, I reckon it's because of using phone hotspot and not wifi, maybe my data is slow today.

So no video showing what I wanted but I'll show you his perfomance in one simple screenshot :D 

but first, the game in question was at home v Newcastle, they are 15th us 3rd/2nd, forgot which one lol. So I edited the tactic to make it more attacking and adventurous, not many changes really but here is what it looked like.

neew.jpg

They were set up in a flat 5-4-1 so I knew breaking them down would be tough, I actually made the mistake of not changing the passing or tempo until I realised too late during the game. It ended up being our most attacking game to date having 42 shots, although we struggled to break them down because I forgot to change a few settings.

We only won 1-0, which doesn't sound amazing I know, but playing against a flat 5-4-1 with a low block and only the striker anywhere near the halfway line, they were tough to get through.

 

 

 

I find I gt alot of 1-0's against park the buses. defensively this tactic is really sound, I've just gone 15 games without conceeding to break the record (Utd also).

How do you find the mezz? Does he do enough defensively? Maybe having an attacking duty in cm allows the libero further forward to, I currently have mine on attack duty but he rarely ventures high enough to shoot, maybe giving him the room to push forward is the answer.

How about the F9? Im experimenting with an AF, I'd love my forward to be my top scorer.

Mezz I was just rtying for this game, I usually use a cma but he never went wide enough, so I used a mezza and he made the room for bruno to run into. Helps when I have all the players set to stay wider haha. I was reading and watching videos last noght on how other people have got the libero working, including that one that got SMS being a beast there. SO I was testing some of the things I saw from everything..

F9 again just trying it this game, he didn't do a lot but he usually had 3 players marking him at all times. I think I'll probably just go back to the SS that worked well, apart from dropping too deep for my liking after a while, it worked some games but was rubbish in many others

Yeah Im even considering using a PFa or Poacher just to try and get the striker some goals :p though like you say, there often outnumbered. Although if you get the libero, mezz attacking the box some one has to close them down.

I tried that, but again not for a long enough test really. Rewatching Brunos goal I can see a few issues in attack

One things for sure, the u18s are loving this tactic, they are now regularly scoring 4+ each game,they weren't doing that before

Probably the u18, u23 games are more open.

probably.... I can't get this consistent in attack. Just lost a game we had 17 shots on target with no CCCs

Its strange, Im not 100% but I think it plays better on attacking mentality.

 

I just played Lazio in the group stage of Europa League, 0-0 again, think they will win the group on goal difference.

We ended up with equal shot, they had a couple more on target but i had 1 more CCC that we didn't take advantage of. Closing I've come to conceeding though, they played well.

Greenwood got man of the match playing as a PF(a)/Poacher. I changed after about an hour so he closed down a little more as I tweaked tactics.

It happens.

You got FMed. :lol:

happens every game, not losing obviously lol but we have loads of shots on target but the opposition keepers are walls. The most annoying thing for me is when we attack the opposition put their foot in and tackle us, when they attack our defenders run alongside them having a cup of tea asking them how their day is and then letting them go

Really? I just conceded first goal in 16 games, against Bournemouth!!

30 yard screamer straight from the goalie to Callum Wilson, who turned, ran 10 yards and smashed it ^^

Not doing anything special I don't think

I'm not conceding much either. For this tactic you have to make sure that your midfield us defensively sound. Good tacklers and with good positioning.

here is a screen shot of libero on attack over 90 mins, no 5 is the libero.

Little bit concerned how close the wingers are to my WB's though.

How can I get this kind of diagram report in the game? I don't get post match briefing messages like that.

Im playing Bruno/Pogba and McTominay/Fred.

True that's a pretty good midfield. Could be something else then.

Make sure not to put too many attacking duties as it will allow opposition to counter you easier. My rule of thumb is that i can use more attacking duties if on positive mentality (but not more than 2 or 3) and use barely any on attacking mentality (maybe 1 only). This allows for more balanced compact tactic. It's also helpful to study how the individual mentality for each player changes due to to team mentality changes. Sometimes adding a TI like "overlap on wings" or "focus down the middle" will bring their mentality up a notch without disrupting your general attacking shape too much. Also some roles like inside forwards even on support are very attacking. In general you want to make sure that your defenders still defend and attackers still attack but without telling the whole team to run forward to do this.

I understand that.

I try not to go on to Attacking mentality as I feel it will cramp up whatever space there is for teams that park the bus.

I just get it automatically after games. Always have. Post match reports, then click on passes

Ok thanks, I'll check that. Don't think I had a report after the game I was looking at last. I guess I'll have to check if maybe my automatic settings have been changed, like delegating too much to my assistant and not generating reports.

I'm using the bbm/cm(s) with tonali/fred or mctominay in the bbm and pogba/fernandes/fred for the cm(s).

I change my mentality to attacking if I'm at home and the opposition have parked a bus, 5 lorries and a trailer. Even change the cm(s) to a mezz(a) occasionally to. other than my striker role (and Libero) I dont have any other attack duties.

That's a good rule of thumb. I do something similar. How do you find the CM(s) in comparison to the previous Mezzala on support? Do you use any special PIs for it. I try to make mine into a secondary playmaker through PIs. To create a better link between Libero and attackers.

Squeeky bum time as I have lost 4 out of the last 5 games now with me doing a load of tinkering and the players not knowing whats going on each game. But I think I have settled on something now so just going to let the familiarity get to fluid and see how it goes. One thing I've noticed using the total football dna filter from whoever it was that posted it, the squad needs work for this style to really work.

In the summer there will be a lot of players moving on and coming in

Definitely need intelligent and good technical players to be able to play Total Football.

I believe the DNA filter is from @Ö-zil to the Arsenal!

OK, as a supporting role, Fernandes seem to perform alot better than Pogba in it, probably his work rate to be honest.

 

Only PI he has is take more risks, I've not overly complicated any of the roles purposefully in case I needed to adjust stuff. The combination of bbm and cm(s) provides a good base for my attacking players, plus wingbacks to get forward.

Do you have the head scout assigning the scouting or do you do them yourself?

I have spent ages trying to find how to do it but I can't see a setting/ Perhaps reset all the staff responsibilities, maybe at the start you clicked something that stopped them doing it

Go to scouting, assignments.

You can choose who to have control over the scouting responsibility.
