Really like this challenge. I start new save with Fiorentina, and decide not to buy anyone in 1st transfer window. At first I use Control with fluid, but it didn’t work well. My team can’t create enough a chance and too many miss pass. So I lower mentality to Counter, to create slower tempo, and cautious build up play.
Using flat 4-4-2 with WP on 1 side. Sometimes I change my WP to WM (S) if the opponent play too narrow.
I always start with Higher Defensive Line (to shorter distance between my defenders and midfielders) and Work Ball into Box (to stop my player shooting from distance). But it really depends on situation on the field. If the opponent have pacey striker, I remove Higher Defensive Line; If I can’t create a chance, I replace Work Ball into Box with Pass into Space or More Direct Pass; or Play Wider if I want focus my attack from both wings.
Short Pass for my defender with low passing attribute (DCR), Take Short Kick (GK), and Dribble More (MR).
After half season I sit on 3rd, 15 points from Juve. Can’t complain.
And now for 2nd half of the season, I try to create more attacking tactic, either change formation or change mentality/team shape.
Is it okay to use OI for this challenge?
