  1. Seems like Manchester City played a similar formation against Arsenal. They defended in a 442, but in attack Sterling and Aguero played fluidly upfront, Mahrez and Foden were high and wide, Cancelo moved inward to create a 3 man midfield with Rodri and Silva and Walker, Dias and Ake formed a 3 man defense. I was never successful in transforming a 442 into a back three, but it is always something I wanted to do.
  2. Hate to say, but Manchester United at the time was one of the best sides I've seen. Enjoyed your post, I don't know if it's more/less accurate but I would be tempted to drop the DLF to attacking midfield to play as a shadow striker and play Tevez as a CF.
  3. Thought I do a little follow up as I played a few games. I'm playing as Inter. First, the 5212 since I used it the most. This is the setup I went with: CFsu AF AMat DLPsu CAR WBat WBsu CDde L/su CDde A major issue I had was creating chances against weaker teams, as we scored 15 goals in 10 games with previous tactics against mostly weaker sides (I'm excluding matches against Juventus and Lazio). In the 10 games I've been using this tactics we scored 28 goals, so job done. One thing is that we are a good set-pieces team, which w
  4. Cheers. If I'm playing with a high line, wouldn't it be more beneficial to have the central defender as cover?
  5. I want to use this as my go-to tactic, playing as one of the better sides in the league and having an overall excellent squad. Basically, possession based, high pressing tactic. I hope the middle two + back three could keep me solid while the wingbacks and forwards stretch the opposition defense.
  6. Great idea for a thread! I want to have 2 tactics, a counter attacking 5122 and a high pressing, possession-based 5212. What do you think about these role combinations? 5122: GK/d CB/d BPD/c CB/d WB/d DLP/d WB/s MEZ/a CAR/s AF/a PF/s Here I'm a bit contemplating about the Mezzala and Advanced Forward. I think with the Mez moving sideways I might lacking central thrust. Playing him as CM/a or withdrawing the AF to SS/a might fix this but what do you think? 5212: SK/d CB/d BPD/c CB/d WB/a
  7. Thanks for all the feedback. Wasn't able to play much today but I'll try to play with it and see how it works. Thinking about changing Zlatan to DLF/s, the AMC to AM/a, AMR to W/s and MCR to BBM. Remove one or both possession instructions and add Pass into space.
  8. I'm playing as AC Milan using a 4-2-3-1 formation: Only PI is Hold Position for the CM/s. The tactic is defensively solid and keeping possession, but we don't create enough quality chances, particularly for Rebic and Ibrahimovic. Most of my chances are long shots. I think there's need to be an element of directness added but I'm not sure what. Tried chancing the AMR to W/s and the FBR to FB/s without much difference.
  9. Thanks. Shame, really wanted to build a homegrown contingent of him, Kamara and Lopez
  10. I've just started with Marseille on the latest patch (20.4.1). Anyone had luck with renewing Lihadji's contract? I want to start him while Thauvin is out but he wants to leave at the end of his contract
  11. Ohh next one maybe, but he isn't leaving this year. Look to the academy as well, I already saw Brewster and Elliott developing well, both could take over Mane and based on your formation Elliott might take over Wij as well. Jones might also develop good enough
  12. No way Mane's leaving, but Mbappe, Sancho, Zaniolo (if you're willing to accept left footers), Hudson-Odoi As for Wijnaldum, Thiago (in real life), Romario Baro, Sandro Tonali
  13. I really want to start a save with Liverpool but our squad is too good Thinking about maybe playing without making any signings, or maybe sign U19 players only
  14. Looking for a team in France, Italy or Spain. Either a second division side or a top division side that is expected to finish in the bottom half. Looking for a team that got a good youth set up and some interesting young players. Contemplating Sochaux, Sporting Gijon and Bologna, would appreciate other recommendations
