  1. I've played with Mezzalas and a role like that needs players with Good pace, stamina and workrate. If you don't have that in him, then yes he's gonna have a bad time getting back on defense...
  2. Some extra reading on Italy's tactics https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/italy-turkey-euro-2020-tactics-mancini-b1864558.html https://pythagorasinboots.com/italy-euro-2020-tactical-analysis/ I think it is tough to emulate the way they play as you can only focus one side of the field in FM. They use the whole field instead of one side. When one fb goes forward, the other stays back. Kind of reminds me of how fbs used to play back in the days. Tough to emulate that now in this game (maybe WB (auto) with Hold Position)?
  3. Yep. With Depor. Got them only to the playoffs tho but I was undeated in the first season there with barely any money spent
  4. Only in the slider years, you can come close to recreate the role. Put the guy in at WM (s) and set him as narrow as you can. After that, you can't do it with the current tactical creator (post-sliders)
  5. Tries Killer Balls Tries Long Passes Plays One-Twos Likes to Switch Ball Into Flank Move Into Channels Drops Deep This would be my ideal Treq
  6. Attributes that I usually look for is - Work Rate - Pace - Stamina - Passing - Strength - Aggression Of course, everything is up to the tactic
  7. 1) Theres no difference. They're just labels. I don't know why SI decided to retain that as it just confuses people. 2) PF has Close Down More hard coded and if you put the right player with the right role, they'll work hard and even track back a bit to your own half in order to win the ball back. Think of someone like Drogba or Diego Costa for that role A CF is someone like Ronaldo Phenom or Lewandowski. They run down the channels, roam from position, they can also act as a creator along with being a scorer. If you have the right system and the right players in place, the CF
  8. Do you got a parent club, OP? Maybe you can loan some natural wingers from them for free. I would also look through the reserves/youth for some gems. Worst case scenario, you can always retrain the players you currently got
  9. Oooohhh... this reminds me of my previous attempt at Emulating De Zerbi's tactics. If you're gonna do that, high time-wasting and lowest tempo possible is a good start. Obviously, Shorter Passing and Play Out Of Defense are important there. I would also recommend trying to win the ball back high up the field as well (so High Line, High Pressing)
  10. I didn't know about the rule. Forgive me. (Just hunt it down on YT folks)
  11. Yep for last year's versionIs still possible to do in this year, i guess I'm not a big fan of this game's handling of manmarking. Players tend to mark when it doesn't make sense to sometimes and you can easilly break your defensive system...
  12. I'm not big on using a flat front 3. It's not even the closet realistic shape in defense (if we're talking about Liverpool's 433 shape) and that could well smoke you on the counter. I believe using two wingers with narrower instructions and PPMs could get the job done better and not have you skinned in defense
  13. I'd say SS (a) w/ arrives late PPM could work MEZ (a) should also work too
