Thanks for the advice, I'll give some of those a try and will see what happens. I am playing FM16 though, so can't use either Mezzala or Carrilero roles. Despite reading plenty of stuff about shape, I've always found it to be somewhat of an enigma as I struggle to notice what effect changing it actually has, hence why I've left it on flexible, but will certainly give it a go if the other tweaks don't get it working to my liking.
Hi, I'm mainly a lurker on these forums, but thought I needed to come out of the shadows for a bit in order to ask for some help with my 4-3-2-1 possession based tactic. I'm playing FM16 as Arsenal and currently in the 3rd season, having won the league in the first season using a 4-2-3-1, but got bored of that somewhat conventional formation and decided to try something a bit less common, settling on a 4-3-2-1 as below: DLFa AMa APs CMs DLPd BWMs WBs CDd CDd WBa
