Speaking of getting certain roles to work, does anyone have any experience with the enganche? Been playing with a narrow 4-2-3-1 for a few days and only realised just now that it might be the perfect time to try out that role, should I manage to find a suitable player.

Yeah, they're fine, they're the king of the pre assist, as in they'll find someone who is moving about, who then finds the goal scorer so in terms of goals and assists, they're nothing remarkable but get the job done. The most boring AMC role IMO :D

You could give it a try and let us know how you got on :thup:

Yes, the anti-trequartista, hard working but 0 flair, it's like Sean Dyche created that role. Despite the description stating it's a stationary role they run a lot and work super hard so I'd recommend more of a BBM type player as an Enganche.

That's not what an Enganche is AT ALL. An Enganche is a stationary playmaker, basically the player who still has an amazing pass and vision, but doesn't have any legs any more, most famous example probably being Riquelme at the end of his career. I have no idea where your idea of an Enganche comes from, but it's completely wrong.

That's what an Enganche should be, but that's not what the role does in FM22. Just a quick versus match, milan vs inter, both 4231 same tactic:

Diaz played as an Enganche, if you want to can test this for an entire season or so, but I used an Enganche for 2 seasons and this is a typical result. And yes I also thought I could use an old player who can't run anymore, I always had to sub him of and ended up using players with better physicals for that role.

True, although your description is wrong there is a difference between an enganche in the FM and an enganche irl. And a lot of the time when using roles it is best to view them from how it works in the game. In FM20 there was an experiment of recreating Riquelme's playing style using an enganche and it didn't work out well.

What description? I said it's a hard working role in the current match engine and doesn't match the in game description, never mentioned irl players

Your description of enganche as a hard working role just isn't true earlier you said it's better to play a BBM player in the role of enganche which if you ever came to that point of putting such a player in that role you would rather just not use an enganche at all in the ME.

Honestly my whole comment was about the difference between a FM take on an enganche and what an enganche means in real life, that is all.

I linked your earlier comment and elaborate further on the enganche role in FM using a "riquelme experiment"  as an example.

Ouch, FM20 and AMCs didn't go together well (I think FM19 was the worse) :D But yeesh, Grasshopper had a rough time of it there. His tactic's not suited to the Enganche though, a static striker, no width, no runs from deep. You need movement, the Enganche in FM is often described as the hook, he's fairly immobile so the players around need to be mobile

We're talking FM here too guys, look at the description of the role, look at the instructions (barring in mind it's a PM role) and look at the key and secondary attributes required, that will tell you everything you need to know about the role

I'm not sure if balance is highlighted as a key attribute for the Enganche but if it was based on Riquelme then he needs loads of Balance and Flair because that were basically his best strenghts (apart from his vision and set pieces). It was impossible to steal him the ball because he was very good at covering it. And I think that translates very well with a high attribute of Balance. As he is a static player and a playmaker, he will attract players (creating space for attackers) so he needs to have attributes to not lose the ball under pressure.

It used to be, but for some reason it has switched over to highlighting agility this year. I'm not sure if that is an intentional change or a bug.

Managed to find the kind of player I wanted for my enganche experiment:

image.thumb.png.5557e31f364260ad34d670fa41271714.png

It was a bit challenging to find a player with the right attributes who didn't have any traits that encourage dribbling more or undesirable movement, but I did find Palacios at Basel and for €14m I have to say he was something of a bargain.

The formation he'll be playing in:

image.png.91f3f5c2bcae9035e4fe219d0d6349b5.png

With AM's on either side, an AF up front and two wingbacks coming up the flanks he should have plenty of options when he gets the ball, but I am sure I will have to tweak my TIs to make sure that he does get the ball.

How are you getting on with your AMC @bosque?

After your advices with players attacking the box I'm seeing very interesting movements with this setup:

          AF(a)

W(s)  AM(a)  IF(s)

I'm using a Winger because my strikers are good in the air. And the AM(a) is Wirtz, he is finding a lot of space and making a lot of key passes.

Shadow striker > False 9. Look how deep he drops and the space it creates for my inside forward:

Played with a narrow 4231 at Parma for the past two seasons (winning the league twice), but recently changed to a wide version. Looks very solid. Also because I have a lot of great attacking midfielders, all with a bit of a different skillset.

Pablo Torre is my main man for now. Picked him up for 27.5M in the summer of 2026 and after a wonky start he's been slaying it. Great PPM's for someone sitting in the hole.

Moreno-Manzanaro is the kid who will probably take over from Torre in a few years. Actually found him at Juventud Laguna in Spain and picked him up for 50k.

Katsamakas had been my main man before Torre arrived, stole him from Bayern for 3M but his technicals are not what they should be.

And finally, Anderson's been very important for me ever since we picked him up for free at the start of the third season. Played as a CM(A) in the first year, bagging 16 goals, but then moved up to the ACM slot.

I've been wondering about the treq. What's needed for him to optimally fulfil his duty? Lots of movement around him? Inverted wingers or regular wingers? Inside forwards?

And perhaps another question for people like me: what do you see as the optimal performance for a treq? Goals or assists? Pre assists?

I found a 4-4-2 Diamond or a 4-3-1-2 was really good for the Trequartista, he basically has the attacking midfield all to himself and two targets in front him he can interlink with and supply 

On another note, Tardelly, that Brazilian beast I was talking about a couple of pages back, he's under my command now I'm the boss of Bayern, here's a nice first half hattrick he just picked up

I think it makes sense to be contradictory, someone who likes to play with back to goal is unlikely to get further forward often.

I've never seen him play with is back to goal though so I thought it didn't apply to other positions apart from the Striker position, I thought Comes Deep would be the conflicting trait 

It doesn't affect him playing AM(A), so not sure if it's a bug

That's him linking with the F9, I'm pretty sure he has the "plays one twos" trait which is great for an offensive AMC

It's only been 20 games with the tactic so far but it's playing some incredible football with the Shadow Striker and the AF reaping the benefits. Lots of one twos and flowing moves.  I don't know how to make Gifs to show off the football but the first 3 goals in that game were wonderful.

Well, I believe that here lies one of the flaws in the current match engine.

In high-pressing (hig LOE) + counter-pressing system with 4-2-3-1 formation, the most hard working players are three attacking midfielders. At least they gather the most distance during 90 minutes. They work way more than full-backs or controlling midfielders, for example. And in the current match engine they are able to do that hard work, regardless of their work rate, stamina and natural fitness attributes, because fatigue doesn't really matter in FM.

In reality most of them wouldn't do that because they just don't have necessary mentality (work rate, determination) or physical ability to press so much, always.

That is something I always thought. Given the amount of succesfull tactics with high pressing, high lines, counter-press, etc, I'm not very sure if workrate, stamina and natural fitness are that important in the ME. They are for real life for sure.

Can you share your savegame please? (Maybe in DM/PM if you don't want the whole world to see it :D )

Not that I think you are "cheating" or something, but I remember your earlier tactic in this topic and it worked wonders for me, so I'm really curious to see the full setup in your save.

I'm having good perfomances from my AMC but I'm having 2 problems:

- Defending: I find my DM's doing a bad job screening my CB's and they end up having to leave the line and creating space or just conceding throuhg balls.

- Attacking: We are too predictable and a bit toothless. I rely a lot from set pieces. And we try too many balls over the top to my AF.

Right now I am fielding like this:

Positive mentality. Nothing in possession. Pass to fullbacks in-transition. Prevent GK distribution out of possession.

                               AF(A)

W(S)                      AM(A)                      IW(S)

 

                 VOL(S)              DM(D)

I finally finished my season at Bayern, getting Tardelly as the top scorer was the plan and he did it. 33 returns in 43 games was cracking. He was on 1:1 about 25 games in but he started hitting the goal and assist clauses in his contract and dropped off :D

Can you explain thinking behind the PPM plays with back to goal for an AMC? How do you set him up with that and how does he play? Sorry if I missed that from before.

Sorry for answering instead of Johnny but I'm almost sure that he said the ppm doesn't kick in in the AMC position and he suspects is a ST only ppm.

@FreakiieI watched some Tardelly clips and goals, I even scouted him to see his match reports. AI Nagelsmann plays him as an Attacking Midfielder, a lot of the goals he scores are near post headers and freekicks. I couldn't see the "plays with back to goal" PT kick in while he was playing there so I'm guessing it only affects the STR position, which makes sense  

@04texag

Sorry for doble post.

He had that when I joined, it looks like he has history of playing upfront so he either newgenned into the game with it or he picked it up along his career 

As @bosquepoints out, I never saw him play with his back to goal at AMC before I joined or whilst I managed him. I guess it doesn't affect the role/ position similar to how "Brings ball out of defence" only seems to affect DCs
