FairyTailed Posted October 20, 2020 Share Posted October 20, 2020 Since the start of the new season, Inter has seen a shift from a 3-5-2 (employing a mezzala) to a 3-4-1-2. I'm having trouble defining the exact role. Maybe some of you can watch a game (Inter vs Borussia Mönchengladbach tomorrow) or have watched a few games. I can describe the characteristics best as following: 1. Irregularly drops deep to collect the ball or assist in defense (can be a comes deep to get the ball trait or case of high determination + work rate translated into the game); 2. Puts himself available for a pass wherever play occurs. Play goes via the wing? The AM moves to the wing. Middle? He's in the middle. Route one to Lukaku to hold up? He is the first there to collect a pass; 3. Sometimes the AM puts himself on the wing before the play gets there, but again probably in an attempt to receive a pass in a good position; 4. Scoring is mostly limited to long shots, but at times we see that role trying to get into the box with a quick dribble or a 1-2 with a striker. All in all I see mainly characteristics of the AP(A) and the Trequartista (primarly the roaming to the wings). My best idea was that the role is an AP(A) with the additional PI to roam more. Please let me know your thoughts based on these descriptions or on your own view from watching! Additional question: To create the best possible environment for your AP(A) + Roam possible, is it necessary to tell both forwards to stay wider in FM? I've not had many experiences with playing an AM role behind 2 strikers. Thank you. Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
