FMunderachiever Posted November 15, 2020 Share Posted November 15, 2020 Hi Everyone Im a Leicester City fan, and trying to create a Rodger's style tactic that seems to be serving us very well at the moment. Just wanted some advice on how to communicate this into the game. What im working on at the moment is a sort of hybrid from the Man City, Arsenal, Leeds, Wolves and Europa League wins that has served us so well so far. Just looking for some thoughts on roles and team instructions. At the moment, im going with this, albeit i have injuries: I find the player roles a bit confusing for a new Rodgers tactic. The idea behind the current roles are that in attack we will be more like a 3-4-2-1 shape, With Maddison and Praet getting into the left and right sided ACM roles to support Vardy, whilst the wing backs offer the width. Ive given Maddison and Praet PI's to get further forward and to come inside with the ball to get into pockets of space, whilst when defending, hopefully they will revert into the narrow block of 4 that was so difficult to break down vs Man City and Arsenal away: But then in certain circumstances the formation could be switched to use Barnes in the AML and Cengiz Under in the AMR to provide pace and directness on the counter attack but perhaps not together. Team instructions I am struggling with. These days, Leicester seem like a team that will play patient, probing build up, but wont pass the ball for the sake of passing the ball. Depending on the opponent with the Man City and Arsenal games, we can be adept at sitting back but using pace on the counter attack, we tend to struggle more when the onus is on us to break an opponent down. We are not a team that puts lots of crosses into the box, so "work ball into box" could be an option, but in games where we are not favourites to win then the directness comes mostly from passing forwards early and having forward players "get at" their opponent in dribbling situations. Would be grateful for any suggestions if anyone has tried to build a similar tactic Thank you Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
