Utilising The New "Wide Centreback" On Fm22


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

What kind of set up would you think would utilise the new "wide centreback" role created for FM22?

Its still a pretty rare role id say. Sheffield United made it popular (ish) but they are a poor side.

I think Azpilicueta did a little of this during the spell Conte was manager.

 

What roles would you set up to use a wide centreback?

We will have to wait because there might be another roles that work beside the Wide Centreback - another advanced wingback role, for example. And we will have to see if the Wide Centreback is not bugged, like the Halfback was some time ago. Better wait and see.

I am really excited about this role. Probably like no other FM role before. Mostly because I could finally attempt a more realistic recreation of Cruyff's 3-4-3 Diamond tactic. Eventhough my previous tries in FM21 went pretty well, having a dedicated Wide CB (whom you could set to Attack duty!) would make for an interesting tactical situation.

Will probably be for total football systems and back 3 systems. Pretty decent addition, i wonder i there are more new roles or if this is the only one.

Betis when Quiqe Setien was the manager they had overlapping centre-backs, Sidnei was the guy on the left not sure who was the one on the right. In England I only saw it from Jack O'Connell at Sheffield under Wilder.

Chris Basham too. Basham did it more than Jack.

Let's face it. Most setups we'll see will be 2 wide centre backs on attack accompanied by months of moaning about how crap defending is in the FM22 match engine :lol:

I am now almost tempted to play with 2 * WCBa, 1 * La , 2 * CWBa, and 2 * VolA -- If 7 at the back won't hold, what even is that game!?!?!

(In all seriousness though, I might try out the two WCBa-route -- I often used two BPDSt as outer centrebacks in the past (especially back when centre-play upped their mentality to neutral) for their offensive movement and more aggressive defending. Together with a good cover and maybe a defensive DM that might create some good movement and active defending.)
