Halbraum Posted September 11, 2020 Share Posted September 11, 2020 This is my first post so i want to salute the great community. I started playing FM one month ago, dear lord it was frustrating to read countless articles in this forum to learn about the game and football theory (im not a fan of this sport actually, so i knew nothing about tactics). Please forgive the broken language, im not a native speaker. I'm currently using 2 tactics; same formation but slightly different setups. Raumdeuter role is the common feature of these tactics for two reasons: i have an able player and im obsessive. I have used the first tactic for couple of seasons. It works but not the way i wanted and i feel like i don't know what i'm doing . like we're doing good thanks to talent, not tactic. Im far away from my main PC so screenshots are created through formation creators. TI's: -Positive mentality -Wide attacking width -Play out of defence -Standard tempo and passing -Pass into space against bigger sides -Higher DL against lower clubs, Normal DL against even or bigger sides (my both CDs have 12 accelaration) -Standard pressing and LOE Some Explanations and Reasoning: My RMD is not a dribbler type (12), i think it makes IF(At) role out of question. My forwards are slow,strong, decent dribblers and creative types, so F9 and Treq is out of question too i think. AP(su) are the ideal role for that player imo. He's perfectly creative (17 vision, 16 decisions and composure etc.) but below average defender and runner. QUESTIONS Does this tactic lack penetration? In some matches it seems like we don't have a cutting edge, especially against teams even or lower to us. How can i enhance the penetration? Is WB(su) role too aggressive for left side? AP vacates too far away toward ball sometimes and as you know RMD doesn't track back. Most of the danger comes from left side but i cannot understand if RMD's irresponsibility or aggressive role of LB causes this, i didn't sacrifice width by changing the role but i want to hear your suggestions. What do you think about DM(de) role? Is it unnecessary along with BWM? Both of the roles are press-oriented. Would i lose cover for left flank if change it to Anchorman? Are there somethings to utilize and create space for the Raumdeuter? HERE COMES MY SECOND TACTIC. I have played with this tactic only for couple of matches so conversations on this one will probably be based on "Will this work?" Explanations and Reasonings: -I recruited a good pure winger "accidentally"(30 million £, 8 finishing). He's my only rotation for AMR position and im trying adapt and create a second tactic for him. -I turned DLF to Attack because i want him to get to opposition area earlier to meet with crosses. -I'm using IWB(Sup) to fill the playmaker's space. And hopefully overload there. -All TIs are same. QUESTIONS Are my flanks too exposed? I have only used this tactic against very inferior sides so i couldn't understand that. I turned AP to attack in order to make him attack the AM strata aggressively, hopefully DLF(At) creates space for him by stay more forward than DLF(Sup). Is my reasoning correct?
