  1. I’m playing on FM11 and have 3 simple systems, using generic roles, which fit different player types. The players that are used determine the teams style of play, to some extent. All systems are built using Balanced/Standard philosophy and mentality. Here are the systems: 4-2-3-1:- GK D WB S CD D CD D WB D CM D CM S IF OR W S AM S IF A AF A 4-3-3:- GK D WB S CD D CD D WB S DM D CM S CM S IF A IF A DLF S 4-3-1-2:- GK D WB S CD D CD D WB S CM S CM D CM S AM S AF A DLF S All 3 work very well, but I am having trouble in building a 4-4-2 in a similar way, that is as successful as the others. Any ideas or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
  2. So it looks like you would place them dependant on what space is being left and exploited by your wide players?
  3. In a 4-4-2 formation would you place your most advanced central midfielder behind your most advanced centre forward and defensive centre midfielder behind your support striker, or visa versa?
  4. Herne, would you be interested in elaborating on how to create sensible role allocations in different formations?
  5. I think this thread needs to lead on to another about creating simple, logical tactics.
  6. There have been a lot of things added to the game over the years that are just for show. There to be ignored.
  7. Thanks for the help. I think the conclusion I’m coming to is that the DLP(D) and AP roles are easy to differentiate which players are better suited to each role. However, maybe both types of playmaker could be suited to the DLP(S) role.
  8. What about in the reverse? What low scoring attributes would stop you from playing an player suited to playing as an AP, in the DLP role? Or at least make him less successful in that position?
  9. What I’m aiming for is to be able to look at a playmakers attributes and decide whether they are more suited to being a deep lying or advanced playmaker. So knowing which attributes differentiate the two types.
  10. This makes sense. With my example, Fabregas, he actually did move further back down the pitch as he aged and his mobility decreased.
  11. So the main difference, as far as you are concerned, is that an advanced playmaker is generally more mobile?
  12. I know the difference between the way what each the DLP and AP roles perform on the pitch in FM. The question I have is; what attributes(if any) separate a player that is a deep lying playmaker with a player who is an advanced playmaker? For example I have seen Cesc Fabregas perform the role of a deep lying playmaker many times IRL, however his defensive attributes are poor. What attributes make Fabregas more suited to this type of role than say, Ozil?
  13. Verratti isn’t a goal scoring midfielder :/
  14. This has the potential to be the best thread I've read this version.
  15. With a few teams being successful at the World Cup, with the deep-compact-well organised 4-4-2 (Uruguay, Sweden etc.) I would like to open a discussion about the best way to replicate this system. Im a tactical novice and can't add too much myself, but would love to read about everyone's thoughts and ideas.
