  1. Against the teams parking the bus you may want your full backs to contribute more attacking wise. You could change them to Wingback - Support and have them Stay Wider. This would give your other players another passing option, help to outnumber the defending team and use the whole pitch.
  2. Tonight v Valencia was my first time seeing them this season, so the below is based purely on tonight's game. I assume tonight was quite different to how they've generally played - I've heard their formation called 4-4-2 and 4-2-3-1 this season. https://www.football-lineups.com/team/Barcelona/ might be of some use; it tends to be a reliable site in terms of formations. Busquets HB, Rakitic right side, Paulinho CM-A, Iniesta left (you could have him as an Advanced Playmaker but I'm not sure they played through him quite enough). Messi could maybe be a Trequartista from the AMCR position instead of a False Nine. The centre backs were pretty aggressive in one-on-ones, maybe Stopper duty or Tighter Marking.
  3. Good books on tactics?

    Source(s)? I'm interested.
  4. Are you wedded to this formation? It doesn't suit Liverpool, in my opinion. It may be more boring, but 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 would seem to suit them better. Fair play if you fancy playing that formation though, it could be fun. Few points you might want to consider: Salah probably can't make full use of his pace and dribbling from central midfield. Salah and Coutinho together in midfield is pretty bold in a formation that is probably better suited to sitting deep. It could work if you keep the ball well enough, but is Salah going to be the best at retaining possession? (Perhaps a waste of Henderson having him sit on the bench.) If you're after possession, will the deepish defensive line with Standard mentality be suitable? Emre Can is a playmaker but Coutinho's in a workman role, maybe have Can as DM and Coutinho as AP? Milner isn't particularly quick, but is expected to provide most of the width on the right.
  5. Hopefully this isn't going too far off topic: is it just these new roles that have differences that we can't see in the instructions screens? To use a comparison that I've seen around: Box to Box Midfielder seems the same as CM(support) with 'roam from position' ticked, but are there hardcoded differences too?
  6. Hi, Sorry if this is somewhere obvious and I've not seen it. On previous editions Creative Freedom was one of the visible instructions on each player's tab. For example, Trequartista had full Creative Freedom and a role like Ball Winning Midfielder had much less. I wondered if this is still the case? Cheers!
