  1. So I want to play a 4-3-3 with 1 DM, 2 CM's, 2 Wingers and a lone striker. I want the mentality to be control. Reason for wanting to use this formation is that I already have one control/attacking formation and this new 4-3-3 will help utilise players I can't use the in other control formation due to not using a DM. So I've only ever used this formation on counter and am not sure what instructions to set. My other issue is that my two top strikers play with their back to goal and although are not slow, theyre definitely not fast. Both are best used with either a TM or DF role. Trequartista is
  2. Nope. Likes ball to feet effects the players runs. So he'll make less runs where the ball needs to be played into space. With runs with ball often, the player will make the same runs as usual but what they do with the ball once they receive it changes. In the case, they are more likely to dribble than to pass.
  3. When two cm's, do you put the DLP on support or defend? Do you use the BTB for defensive or possession game?
  4. I've only used one during the game when I can see an obvious need for it. But I've never quite cracked how to fit it into a successful long term tactic. So how do you use yours? I.E what team instructions? Whats his role for the team? How does the BTB role benefit you? What player instructions? What outcome do you get from using the BTB compared with another role? What roles do you match it with?
  5. General training level will not be affected by either: positional, role/attribute or preferred move training. However those three effect each other. Consider them the players "additional training" time. "Additional training" and level has no effect on general training time and level and vise versa. His level of "additional training" will remain at whatever level you set it at regardless of whether he has 1,2 or 3 focuses to learn in his "additional training" time, however the time will be split between the focuses (equally). As an example, if he is learning a new preferred move as well as tra
  6. If you're using offside trap you'll probably want a midfielder to shield the d line who will either intercept the pass or force their players to simply choose another pass. Also bear in mind that if they play with a pacey striker they'll likely be trying to pass into space so you'll need fast defenders (in particular your centre halves). Pitch dimensions is also important. If the pitch is short, your defenders will have less time to catch up with the player who is through on goal. This tactic can be effective but only in matches you expect to dominate possession. The high line is useful only w
  7. What stood out from your tactic sections was the imbalance of roles. LD should be reserved for defenders who are terrible on the ball. Use at least one CD as they will play with more intelligence on the ball (try to at least). Also you don't seem to have any creative roles that use support in your midfield triangle so there's not enough creative influence in the side. My opinion anyway.
  8. I use wingers with success but can't help feeling I'm not utilizing my teams tactical flexibility by adjusting the wide mens roles. So my question is, how have you used wide MIDs in your tactical system and what made them beneficial to your tactics?
  9. I would agree with the above suggestion of using a CM instead of BWM. If you really insist, you need to have a DM or BBM to cover the space he leaves open. I would recommend changing your F9 to a DF.
  10. I'm aware you believe you've already solved the problem but I think my advice could help. Firstly, I think you could change your team shape to structured. I think even as Weston supermare you would have some players intelligent enough to play in that shape, and for those that don't you can use player instructions (I find those to be especially important when not playing with a fluid shape because if your player has weak tackling as an example; hetelling him to ease of tackles in a structured shape is likely to really reduce his mistakes in challenges as he will listen to your instructions more
  11. I'm thinking you would use it when the opposition is completely packing the box maybe. Or if you are playing as a team like West Ham, using 'go route one' and having a target man to knock it down for an onrushing attacking midfielder. As for attributes, I wonder if high technique is needed because the player will have less time to balance himself and adjust his body. I'm thinking this because wingers need high techique. I've also read that ball playing defenders should be used for counter attacking, so if go route one was supposed to be coupled with a much higher tempo, it would make sense as
