Toronto Blizzard Posted January 19, 2021 Share Posted January 19, 2021 Hello, FM Community! I recently took a new job in an online game and have decided to abandon the 4-2-3-1 I've been using due to a dearth of AMCs in the squad. I have come up with the tactic below, but would like the community's thoughts on any glaring weaknesses or areas that could be improved before I unleash it upon my friends. I have tried to limit TIs to leave my players to make decisions. Broadly, I'd like to build from the back through the central midfield three and then work the ball out wide. My hope is that on the left side, the IF driving to the goal, the wingback pushing forward and the mezzala drifting left will create overloads and opportunities for the WB to cut back to the MEZ or play into the IF. I have the front three and the MEZ on a split-block, closing down more and tackling harder. Some questions: Any suggestions on improving roles/duties? Since the fullbacks are WBs, can/should I remove the overlap instructions? Can/should I reduce the DL/LOE with a split-block? With the WBs pushing forward I'm wondering if I can still achieve a press with greater defensive stability of dropping the lines. Do I need a more direct runner from central midfield, or will the MEZ(s) get far enough forward? Any other suggestions/observations are more than welcome!
