Why oh why do none of my AMRs perform with this tactic?


Recommended Posts

I'm on my 4th team now with Man City, just started with them and have bought one of the world's best players in the regen Dejan Baptiste (below).

I scouted him lots doing my stint at Bayer Leverkusen and continued to do so now at Man City and both sets of scouts gave him reviews of high 90s. So when the chance came to sign him for £87m came, I considered that an absolute steal. Unfortunately, he's not performing. Then it sort of occurred to me that previously at Bayer Leverkusen, at Napoli and at AS Saint-Etienne I used this tactic (and a 4-3-2-1 tactic sometimes) and I've never really had a AMR who has performed well. 

This is my current, time-honoured tactic (also below) - what am I doing wrong? Why do no AMRs work here, am I missing something? With Baptiste's skillset and attributes, which tactic would he be best deployed in (I'm determined to make him work).

Did you try your tactic without the Overlap Instructions? What they basicly do is to increase the Fullbacks mentality at the cost of a lower mentality for your wide attacking players. That could lead to less creative and goal scoring events for those players. The movement of your wide attackers also will be less direct. Your Fullbacks will still overlap occasionally. You could further increase that by using a more progressive role like a WB or CWB. Using Fullbacks on an attack duty is also viable.

I'll try turning the overlap instructions off as you suggest, thanks!

Baptise is fantastic if he is allowed to attack the box. He has a strong right foot, but his trait tells him to go down the right flank like a winger. So what you need to do are two things:

1. Remove the trait, if he plays on the right, he is more than likely to behave like a winger.

What I dont understand with your tactic is that you have this fantastic player who can attack the area and score goals but you have told him to be on support.

I would play him on the left as an IF(A) in a tactic that encourages him  to attack and come in on his preferred foot
