  1. Attributes that I usually look for is - Work Rate - Pace - Stamina - Passing - Strength - Aggression Of course, everything is up to the tactic
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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)
  5. I didn't know about the rule. Forgive me. (Just hunt it down on YT folks)
  6. 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...
  7. 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
  8. I'd say SS (a) w/ arrives late PPM could work MEZ (a) should also work too
  9. Looks good to me. I have tried to make a similar setup to these in the past. Unfortunately, we have stripped of the sweeper here so it's not exactly gonna be proper but it's the best we can do. Classic formations can be tough to emulate. I had partial success with emulating Zona Mista and WW in past FMs...
  10. Counter (or Cautious) or Defensive mentality might be one avenue you can approach. You can also start with Standard mentality and drop the defensive line and line of engagement lower
  11. I would like to call this "The Max Meyer" Domenico Tedesco did the same tactic at Schalke. He used Max Meyer who was an attacking midfielder at DM. He did pretty well there
