  1. Unbelievable post @Ö-zil to the Arsenal!! Given me some inspiration to play again much like your 3-4-3 diamond post did a while back. I'm thinking of starting an Arsenal DNA save where I can build a conveyor belt of talent based on a philosophy. Do you work to a checklist or anything when starting a new save? Like start with getting new coaches, then youth..
  2. Any ideas for recreating his current use of inverted wingbacks? I'm not sure this is what I'm looking for as I'm only after a 4-1-4-1 as a starting point or when defending. I want a 2-3-2-3 in possession.
  3. I saw that. looks like that person is trying to recreate a different tactic as they aren't using inverted wingbacks.
  4. I'm trying to build a replica of Pep's Man City 4-1-4-1 with inverted wingbacks but I'm just not having much success. I feel like the shape should look like more of a 2-3-2-3 in possesssion but it's not quite right. The CMs don't push far enough forward and the wingbacks are either on top of the DLP or too far forward. When out of possession the CMs aren't working hard enough to press or support the defence but if I change them both to support roles then they play too deep. My current tactic is below: - Very Fluid - Control - Higher - Wider - Work Ball into Box

    There isn't currently a role or set of instructions that allows a central defender to join play as a midfielder when in possession. Looking at the pass map below it shows Vertonghen considerably higher up the pitch than Alderweireld, occupying the same space that an IWB would take. This triangle formed by the back 3 is rarely seen in FM with the back line mostly staying pretty flat. Watching this shape in action you can see that when Vertonghen moves up to supprt Davies and Wanyama in midfield, Alderweireld would then shift over with Dier forming a two. It would be great to ha
  6. @Ö-zil to the Arsenal! "Select a Formation which sets defensive structure and facilitates your overall strategy." This is the bit I struggle with. An example being Arsenal's new 3-4-3 formation which can drop into a 5-4-1 when defending. No matter what PIs I use it seems impossible to have Alexis and Ozil playing further forward as 10s or in the half spaces in possession then drop to the wings to defend in the block. Is it just not possible in the game?
