  1. I might try to emulate LVG's old 343 system or Gasperini's 3412 system. They both use wide CBs. I wonder what would happen if I make Luke Shaw a wide CB
  2. Wide centerbacks? Finally, it has arrived. I was begging for this role for a while (and @Cleon for a while longer than that :D) Thank God they finally added it
  3. I would too welcome the idea of having a PI to get players to drop deep. PPMs are tough to learn with some players in this game so I'm all for that being a PI.
  4. Very curious on how Roberto Lopez gets on here with this system. In my Athletic save a couples years back, he was like my Basque Robben Good stuff thus far. The formation you play sounds similar to the one in the Tuchel thread
  5. Also PPMs could help (ie. Stays onside, Gets Further Forward, Gets into Opposition Area).
  6. OTOH I want my wingers to stay inside while attacking...and if I set them to Sit Narrower, I expect them to do so when attacking. Too many times I have a 343 system which breaks because my wingers are too wide from the striker and can't support him...
  7. Uhh....WB with auto role is the choice you probably want and it's already in the game...
  8. 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...
  9. 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)?
  10. Yep. With Depor. Got them only to the playoffs tho but I was undeated in the first season there with barely any money spent
  11. 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)
  12. 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
  13. Attributes that I usually look for is - Work Rate - Pace - Stamina - Passing - Strength - Aggression Of course, everything is up to the tactic
  14. 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 will press too but they tend to stay high up the field most times in defense in this game
  15. 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
  16. 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)
  17. I didn't know about the rule. Forgive me. (Just hunt it down on YT folks)
  18. 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...
  19. 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
  20. I'd say SS (a) w/ arrives late PPM could work MEZ (a) should also work too
  21. 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...
