  1. I guess the way the tactic works is that you have the IWS cutting inside, creating an overload with the supporting mezzala, with the CWBA exploiting the space left behind, and with overlap left you've got the rest of the team focussing on finding him. This means your primary creative outlets are a wingback, who's primary job will be hitting the byline and crossing, and Rashford, who if I remember correctly isn't the most creative player. What's the thinking behind the Mezzala, just out of interest? He's going to hover in a similar position to Rashford, which is a good combination but
  2. I frequently use shouts, and one that seems to work well for me in my latest save is the 'show some passion' in the last 20 minutes of a match. It tends to be the shout that leads to the most positive feedback. It seems counter intuitive, and the type of situation where 'concentrate' or 'demand more' might seem applicable. But by using 'show some passion' in the last twenty minutes, it can help stop your players from switching off or temporarily override players who have become complacent at a time in the match when conceding means there's not much time to get a goal back. Also, I find
  3. I meant it in a humorous way, though looking back I realise that’s not immediately obvious. Sorry if it seemed a bit glib, it’s a good post and it’s given me some food for thought about how I use shouts.
  4. This is one of the most demotivating posts I've ever seen on these boards.
  5. I've had a fair few world class regen CBs from a young age and I've never seen anyone with as good mentals as that as a young age.
  6. I don't think I properly understood the concept of overloading until I read this. I've tried implementing a few of these player role suggestions into my gameplan and I've definitely noticed more space opening up on the opposite flank. Really good post, cheers!
  7. When you're a bigger team and you're playing teams who are going to play conservatively, they're going to sit narrow and deep and pack the centre, usually with a defensive midfielder. By focusing play through the middle, you're asking your team to focus their attacking buildup through the part of the pitch where the defending team are strongest. This, combined with the fact that you haven't got 'work the ball into the box' selected, is why you're seeing lots of long shots; the team are getting the ball outside the 18 yard box, seeing that most players are being marked, and having a potshot ins
  8. Sorry, I was mistakenly going by the original post.
  9. I find when playing with a 4231 possession based tactic, especially as a bigger team, opposing teams will play defensively against you, will sit deep and narrow and usually play a defensive midfielder or two. This means the AMC usually has very little space to work in and their performance suffers because of this.
  10. It's funny because I'm 99% sure that they're the default settings for the boilerplate 'custom possession' tactic. I'm playing a very similar tactic myself at AZ, and I have similar results; very good defensively but not scoring many. That's with two attack duties in the front four as well, and I change up player roles now and again. I also have a problem with my AMC playing poorly, but this has been for two seasons with about three different players in that position now. I'd assume OPs problem is that with his team playing a patient, possession style and doing well in the league te
  11. FC Norjaellesland (Danish Superliga) - due to a partnership with a Ghanian academy, they can produce Ghanian regens. I got an absolute cracking Ghanian AMC who went straight into the first team on my save.
  12. Sorry mate, thought I'd replied to this. For the first season, it looked like this: Quaschener Amon Rygaard Skav Olsen Christiansen Kofod Pedersen Yttergard Jenssen Hansen Bartolec Larsen
  13. I also started a game as FC Norsajaelland, not finished the first season yet, just coming into November but I'm second behind FC Copenhagen, though I got knocked out the Europa in the third qualifying round by Maribor and out of the Danish Cup in the fourth round, I think. I've got to say, you're not wrong about the quality of young players at the squad; it's essentially a team of highly rated youngsters, no real older players to speak of, so definitely a good shout if you're looking for that. I've lost count of the amount of 4-star potential players I have. It's reminiscent of a save I ha
  14. What does the 'mistakes' bit mean under the 'movement' section of the 'analysis' tab? Is it just general mistakes (Bad pass, poorly timed closing down, bad tackles, etc) or does it mean something more specific?
