  1. I have spent a lot of hours this year trying to replicate how city plays under pep. From what i have seen lower mentality + aggressive roles is a much better replication than attacking + conservative roles In the above image i tried to replicate the team when walker plays in and his role is something like a 3rd centerback, if the winger has opposite foot i will use him as inverted winger with stay wider(this year works a lot better) i will write later with more info but in general i was very happy with how we looked
  2. Your goal is to end up something like this if i understood correctly ? You have two options to make it happen 1) Play like Pep 2 IWB's , wingers hug the touchline in early buildup and the 2 Mc's push up to occupy the left and right half space 2)Play like Klopp wingbacks hug the touchline,wingers tuck in and the mids compress the center of the pitch I read your opening post and i think that you mixed them in order to make that 235 happen the problem was the bbm and that you think he will stay deeper which isn't true have
  3. some thoughts about your tactic, i would swap the 2 midfielders and play the attack minded on the left spot and make the right back attacking to create a natural overlap. Maybe try another role instead of mezzalla especially if he isn't left footed to actually go wide behind the inside forward who cuts inside.(ramsey is right footed, a simple cm attack woud be perfect for him). also at dmc spot i would try an anchroman or a simple DMC role, that position is the crucial point of any tactic with one defensive midfielder, and certainly pjanic isnt't that type of footballer, he is great but furth
  4. He has been training for two years now as a ball playing defender and i use him as a central defender. As you can see the tactical familiarity bar is accomplished, his position/Role/Duty is the right one
  5. i have the same problem, been playing all season with same roles but the tactical familiarity is low, if a player let's say a defender is trained as ball playing defender and i use him as central defender the bar of the tactical familiarity is competent or at best accomplished. so my question is you have to train the same role tha you use a player in your tactic in order the player to gain tactical familiarity ?
  6. me too same problem and except the DM and the striker comes short instead of near post
  7. Well i had similar problems in FM20, i took over Monaco in Beta and tried 433 with similar TI's and it was nightmare. I dominated possession but the football we played was awful side passing no forward thinking and all the time balls over the top of my defence. When the full game went out i started again with Monaco and had the same issues. I was trying to emulate pep's football with IWBs, wingers playing very wide and all these fancy things pep does with Man City...and at September during the break for international games i sat down and said "come on man, you play FM since 1998 there has to b
  8. Nice write up and i hope you find success. I recommend reading this excellent article about the decline especially in europe of the classic No 10's http://www.zonalmarking.net/2010/03/26/trequartista-engance-classic-no-10sstruggle/
  9. I think people often confuse counter football(counter attacking) with counter-pressing. I think they are 2 completely different approaches, the first one is conservative and the second one rather aggressive. Playing on the counter means playing you have to play defensive football for large periods in a match, so you have to be first of all defensively solid at the back, frustrate the opponents,and when you have the ball keep it as much as you can in order your defense to take a breath. With this approach the main aim is to keep it clean at the back and if you have a chance to score then is m
  10. Regarding the formation that came up i suggest you read those articles that will certainly help you know how they played http://spielverlagerung.com/2015/08/23/hoffenheim-bayern-munich-costa-key-as-bayern-struggle-against-intensity/ http://spielverlagerung.com/2015/12/29/1995-cl-final-afc-ajax-ac-milan-10/ As Cleon already pointed out the wingers play in the midfield strata and not in the AM. The most important part of this system is the diamond of the midfielders, especially the 2 central midfielders will have to work together with the wingers and if you go with bbm's this isn't going to h
  11. Good evening m8. I want to ask one thing about the playmaker. Do you use any ? and if you do is Fabregas ticked as a playmaker ?
