Luizinho Posted January 15, 2021 Share Posted January 15, 2021 (edited) Hi All, Currently I'm struggling with my Barcelona team to consistently create chances. Despite the obvious wealth of talent within the team, I've been disappointed by the lack of creativity/chances/goals that we offer going forward. The way I see the squad personal-wise, is that I don't have any real goal threats of central midfield. Pjanic, De Jong and Busquets are all deep-lying midfielders who are exceptional on the ball with strong mentals - but they offer little in the opposing box. Therefore my goal threats will need to solely come from my forwards (Messi, Greizmann, Fati, Coutinho, etc). My general gameplan is to play possession football, with the full-backs offering the width in attack. The midfield three will be fully focussing on transitioning the ball into the attacking third and supporting the front three. Messi to drop deeper from the ST position and combine with Coutinho - with Griezmann offering more of a direct goal threat of the three. On the left we look to overlap and be more fluid with positioning. On the right we’re more rigid with the AMR staying high and the fullback holding the wing. Just add some variety on each flank. It is not working and it's all very stale. My current shape is like this (I haven't used it exclusively, but pretty much as below): I have the front three all roaming from position and Coutinho is asked to sit narrower. Other than that, no other real PIs are used. I may be a little cautious? What do you all think? Below is how my results have been (started well, but not good enough recently). I don't mind the odd poor result, but draws with Levante, Eiber, Cadiz and Alvas is not good enough. Just wandering if you guys may have any ideas on how to add some more creativity into my game - particularly for my front three. They are so poor for me! Griezmann: 15 games, 7 goals, 2 assists Messi: 19 games, 8 goals, 4 assists Coutinho: 21 games, 4 goals, 2 assists Edited January 15, 2021 by Luizinho Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
