  1. Overall you set-up looks ok, in a 4-2-3-1 I always give my two centre mids the tackle harder PI to add more bite in the middle and help them shield my defence. Its very important that both centre mids in a 4-2-3-1 have good marking and tackling attributes so I would try Wanyama as a BWM(D) and Dier as a CM(S) with the tackle harder PI and you should notice a difference. Id also recommend removing the push higher up TI as a 4-2-3-1 is already an aggressive formation.
  2. I would change the AP(S) on the right to a W(A) because the AP(S) has the "hold postion" PI hard coded into it which means he will not be aggressive enough down the wings and will not provide enough crosses for your poacher, ive had great success with a wide 4-2-3-1 with 2 wingers on attack.
  3. Kool 😀 let us know how he developes is his bravery and teamwork as high on yours? It was a lot lower on one of my other saves.
  4. Hi all im long time follower of this forum and was just curious if anyone else has signed Cavalli who starts as a 16 year old at atalanta he looks a beast at only 22 for me at the end of my 6th season with Arsenal, I think he has random potential ability because in a different save he was no where near as good.
  5. The reason your left flank is your weakest area defensively is that you have very little cover when your WB is caught up field as the BBM in front will also be bombing up field which then leaves your left flank very open.
  6. Setting match prep to attacking set pieces before a cup game I finds helps a lot with conversion rate.
  7. Young Italians

    "Moise Keane. Buy him and watch the goals galore" I second Moise Kean rated as a world class striker by 21 for me.
  8. I find a BWM(D) and CM(S) with FBs on support work well.
  9. Some help please.

    Simply switching 1 of your CMs to attack would help free him up to run at the oppostions defence Id also leave you striker as a CF as he will help create as well as finishing of chances.
  10. I think your tactic just needs a tweak, in a 4-2-3-1 the 2 central midfielders need to hold their postions and recycle postion as a 4-2-3-1 is such an attacking formation by default. At the moment Vidal is goin to be caught out up the pitch leaving Alonso (who isnt the quickest) on his own trying to shield your defence, try changing Vidal from a BBM to a BWM or CM defend, let us know how you get on.
  11. 2nd Season Advice

    I think you tactic lacks width, other than your WBs you have no width which was fine when teams were playing more open against you but now they are sitting deep and compact you need to stretch play and create space. Maybe experiment using a 4-2-3-1 with wingers, im having great results with the following: GK (D) Fb support x2 CB defend x2 BWM Defend CM Support* Winger Attack x2 AM Support* CF Attack *PI's tackle harder and more risky passes added to CM and AM.
  12. The gap between your defensive and attacking midfielders is too large you need a player to connect the defensive and offensive halves of the team, try dropping the SS to a AM support. Also im not sure if APs on the wings are going to be direct enough to get the crosses into your poacher, try changing 1 to a winger attack. Hope this helps let us know how you get on.
  13. Help with my AC Milan

    Your central midfield is a bit static neither your AP or CM are going to drive at the defence which could be leaving your AF isolated. Try changing your AP to attack and upping mentality to standard.
  14. Defensive problem

    You tactics are both too extreme, the first is too aggressive and attacking, pulling 1 of your fowards back into the AMC postion to make a 4-2-3-1 which is still a very attacking formation would balance things a little. You second formation is way too defensive with 3 defensive mids and 2 defensive full backs plus centre back backs, playing so deep invites the pressure on you for 90mins. Tactics are all about balance.
  15. The first thing that jumps out at me is that your FBs are set to close down less which could be why you are conceding a lot from crosses, your FBs should be closing down the oppostions wide players to prevent them getting their crosses in. Playing narrow also increases the space the oppositions wide players have to run into. Lastly you play with 2 inside forwards who will offer no help protecting your wings leaving your FBs 2 on 1 frequently.
