  1. Tactic download - The Scottish Way 442 Diamond Wide.fmf The shape is a 442 Diamond Wide formation. The roles are Sweeper keeper (attack), Ball Playing Defender (Defend) x2, Inverted Wingbacks (Attack) x2, Ball winning midfielder (Defend), Wide Midfielder (Support) x2, Attacking Midfielder (Support), Attacking forwards (Attack) x2. I have left the opposition instructions and man marking clear. I would suggest you amend these on a game by game basis. For example it may be useful to have the ball winning midfielder mark the AMC, and/or the Advanced F
  2. Hi folks, So I get people have been having trouble with corners this patch. I have a routine that is not an exploit, not a glitch but just helps generate a higher percentage of goals. It's inspired by the musing of @MerryGuido on Twitter and his strikerless.com website. I got the idea for the long shot mayhem outside the box directly from a post he made. I am averaging about a goal or more every two games. DL takes left corners, DR takes right corners or whoever proxies as per your own formation. I don't/won't have patreon and will keep all my content I share free, so
  3. Ok, so I took on board what both RTHerringbone and themadsheep2001 said. I also read the brilliant thread on the art of counter attacking by Cleon. Using the advice and tips on there, plus applying what RTHerringbone said about "how I wanted my side to play" I have successfully created a counter attacking/control tactic that solved my concerns and attacked through the middle. So from one massive whining, moaning, dour faced ****** I'd like to say a massive thanks to the mods on here. I'll try not to be such a belligerent **** as much in future. Cheers guys
  4. I wish I had read this earlier. Fantastic work Cleon. Now onto the blog. Thank you so much.
  5. Thanks, that's some great info to go on, so i'll start implementing it and see where I end up. Thank you.
  6. I'll give the FMT save a try and will test what you've mentioned on that.
  7. Right, ok. So what striker roles do exploit the space in behind a defence? Who runs into channels? Does this mean long balls don't work in the game over the top unless the striker is on a support duty? As I said in the opening post, i'd just like to know what works. I reiterate that. You can refer me to a specific page or whatever. I'm quite happy to take on board any information. It's just i'd like to know how to get a striker to run the channels and/or get in behind a defence. I'm also now very confused about the mentalities. I can't understand how an advanced striker won't run into the ch
  8. I'm assuming the following was just added for banter yeah? Or is it the case they only work with standard, counter, contain mentalities? Seriously? I am very confused now. So attacking only works when players are drawn out, i.e. with a false nine, deep lying forward, so a player overlaps? So in order for a poacher or advanced forward to work, they need to be in a system that is defensive and they essentially don't do as described?
  9. Ok so based on what you've just told me, the advanced forward and poacher will NOT get in behind the defenders because they are on the highest duty setting? Correct?
  10. Let's just assume I am a total idiot. Shouldn't be a hard assumption to make. Please could you tell me, what team and player instructions to use and what's the best way to set up an advanced forward to get in behind a defence and work the channels. It can be whatever formation, system, anything you like. I'd just like to get an advanced forward to work. Please.
  11. Iv'e tried systems with AMC's set on AP and AP's and DP's. Like I said, those are the formations of the last hour. I was only hitting early crosses with wingers as I was informed to exploit space behind a defence that was the way to go. As for the formations, they are just the recent one's I have tinkered with. I have tried playermakers centric formations to no avail. You know, you could try and answer the question. I admire the fact you've moved it onto what I am not doing correct. That's fine. You could just tell me how to make a striker work. If the answer is a attacking playermaker sen
  12. Cool I'll give a few examples then. In answer to your questions I would assume a fast defence and the ability to intercept balls would defend against through balls. Not lunging in as well and staying on feet. I would assume the ability to pass the ball through a specific space would help with through balls, i.e. into channels. Therefore players doing more risk and diret passing to a player running into a channel. Here are a few formations I have tried the last hour and typical instructions I have tinkered with. Some instructions are deselected. Just going based on what Iv'e read on here. A
  13. Hi folks, I am currently struggling to get a striker to work running off the back of a defence or into channels to exploit space. However, I notice the AI manages this pretty much every game and carves through my defence straight through the middle. I have tried various formations using two, three and lone strikers. I have also used various types of team instructions and player instructions. Basically the problem still persists. How do I stop conceding these goals through the middle and how do I score them myself. Now I have scoured this forum. It's telling me on various threads to defend
  14. Yeah, thanks for discussing guys. Just scratching my head when making tactics, thinking "this makes no sense to me". Cheers guys
  15. With respect it makes no sense if it isn't a typo. It's completely counterintuitive. I mean this from a real life coaching perspective as well as in game. Fluidity should relate to movement. I.e. a very fluid team moves more and be more expansive. Not be more compact. Not picking a fight but if that is not a typo then this is a discussion that has merit.
