A defensive deep lying play maker appears to work well with an attacking wingback; with the midfielder naturally covering the space left behind by the defender.

Box to box seems to be good with a winger because they tend to keep in line with one anotherwhen progressing up the field, especially for a direct style of play.

Mezzalas dovetail with inside forward's nicely when they move into the half-spaces from their starting positions.

Are there any other combinations of midfield/wing roles that anybody could reccomend and what style of play they'd be best used for?

IW(s)

               Mez (a)

IWB (s) 

 

This combo works really well on a fast paced possession based system as the IW and Mezzela interchange positions with the iwb showing for possession circulation. You can often play a right footed DLP on the left IWB position, as he will be great at switching play to the other flank.

Excuse my ignorance, but why would you give an IW the PI of stay wide?

If you want them to stay wide, make them a winger and just have them cross less.

Wingers are hard coded to Cross More.

With the stay wide PI he will still cut inside but from a wider initial position. 

It may come in handy, particularly playing against opposition that defend deep and very narrow.
