  1. Meddling it's an open forum mate, your advice is open to criticism. I did offer advice, and that is to ignore people who rattle off the "one dimensional setup" advice. It's not helpful in the slightest, although the rest of your advice is sound and worth taking into account. Don't take it so personally.
  2. You don't know the players PPMs so it's best not to give advice like this
  3. You have a habit of doing this. Someone wants to recreate a specific tactic and you give advice (which is usually sound) which has nothing to do with the tactic the OP wants to recreate. Lauren was definitely not an inverted wingback and Vieria was definitely not a carrielo
  4. No, in my experience if you do not have the players for it, it's going to fail miserably. I tried it with my Atletico side when I took over in 2029 and it took me 3 seasons to get the right squad for it. If I spent those three seasons building a counter attack side I'm confident it would work similar (results wise) to the high pressing side I built. Sometimes I need to revise the tactic to let stubborn sides out to create some more space in behind, in fact I think crossing has been over-powered more than anything for the past 4 games now.
  5. I'm running a 4-4-2 now with my Atleti side and come a little stuck. Hoping this thread can give me a new direction and some fresh ideas. Great opening post
  6. Another from Tifo on Bielsa. I'd love to see if getting the 3-3-1-3 shape in attack is possible from a 4-3-3. His football is my dream football in FM
  7. Not to derail the thread but could you elaborate on what it actually does? Do you initiate a counter every time you win the ball back or is it situational?
  8. 442 is absolutely the formation Ancelotti plays with Napoli. OP I think you need to have a support role up front to help bring the midfield together.
  9. Just read this article https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/how-brendan-rodgers-mimicking-pep-2709767 Wonder how I would go about replicating something similar to this? Would two mezzalas with a DM-D behind them replicate the movement? I do love the idea of two creative midfielders roaming in the final third trying to create overloads but have struggled to get it to work.
  10. This happened to me in 2022 for the Qatar world cup and it destroyed my season. I had Europa League qualifiers (about 4 rounds of them) along with three games every week starting in July! By the time the break for the WC came around (November IIRC) I had played 36 matches, my squad were ruined.
  11. Sometimes I feel like I've finally understood the game then posts like this come along. Even in the few posts you've written @herne79 you've given me a lot of ideas on how to refine my tactic. Thank you
  12. I beat them quite a bit with a poor Cardiff team by sitting off them and playing very narrow in defence. Hit them on the break down the flanks, my record is 3 wins 2 draws and 1 loss against Emery. They don't play with any wingers and rely on the width of the FBs, leaves so much space it's comical.
