  1. I took some of the advice in the thread and changed a few things round, with the tactic now looking like this: Karius is still a sweeper keeper, the MEZ has been changed so he's on the left side now, Henderson is a BBM, Firmino is a DLF and the LW is now an IF on support rather than attack. My last few games have been pretty good, beating Spurs 4-0 with goals from each one of the front three. Play is looking a lot more natural with the ball and players are supporting eachother, the LW on support helps with the buildup and the RW seems to play the ball and run rather than dribbling in
  2. The goals in the first game were pretty good. The first came from my LCM supplying my LB with a direct ball, then the LB crossed in to Firmino for a goal. Second was a quick counter after an opposition free kick, Mane drove forward and played it into Salah who cut inside and scored. The third was from a deep floated cross from Mane and Salah was on the end of it at the far post for a tap in, and the fourth was via a Wijnaldum late run into the box where he picked up the ball from a cross and scored. Those goals were instances of my players executing their roles right, so there were positives,
  3. I am currently playing as Liverpool, testing out a 4-1-2-3 wide. The tactic looks as follows: Karius is a Sweeper Keeper set to defend, instructed to distribute the ball to the CBs on goal kicks. The idea of the tactic is to have Firmino, the false 9, to drop deeper and play Salah, Mane and Wijnaldum into space for goal opportunities. I want my left sided central midfielder to get up the pitch and supply the wingers, arrive late in the box for a shot and get back and help out with defensive work. He has the PI of more risky passes, so he can supply the forward guys in the build
  4. That makes sense, so the support duties and SV are picked because they make sense in relation to the style of play you want with the tactic?
  5. Will be following this as I am attempting to create a 4-2-3-1 with Sevilla. I have a few questions though. Why did you use a SV instead of a DLP? How come there are support duties for the holding player that will shield the defence? is this because you have two DMs in front of a back 4 meaning they will shield the defence by default due to being positioned there? Is it possible to use an Advanced Forward in a 4-2-3-1 providing you get the roles right around him, Or is it simply down to the fact that role in particular isn't optimal for the formation as a whole?
