  1. Hello everyone, I am a bit surprised we are aproaching FM 21 and I'm yet to see an attempt at recreating FK Bodø/Glimt tactics. FK Bodø/Glimt is probably one of the most exciting teams of this year, featuring great young prospects, such as Jans Peter Hauge (now at AC Milan), Patrick Berg or Fredrik Andre Bjorkan. And great, really great, ball playing defenders. They currently sit at the top of the norwegian first division (Eliteserien) by a large margin. Their games are full of goals, don't be surprised to see them winning 6-0. There are some goo
  2. In line of the oppening post, i've started a save using no TIs, PIs, OIs.. The roles are inspired by Klopp's Liverpool system. The only changes i usually make during a match is changing the DMd to DLPd if i notice him having time on the ball, Car to BBM if i want more presence in and around the area (good goals from him, just outside the box) and the F9 to DLFs, CFs or PFa, depending on what i want (more movement or more presence in the area). So far, it is the best football i've managed on FM20.
  3. I was a bit surprised it was so high, yes. The opposition doesn't seem to cross so much. I don't mind the crossing, space is created for the wing backs, but i think irl there aren't so many crosses. On the first match of the season my team attempted 54 crosses.
  4. How many crosses is your team trying per game? Mine is averaging 25 plus (with low crossing). If I changed to mixed crossing, sometimes the number increases to 40 plus crosses attempted. This is my setup:
  5. I find that with both strikers on attack duties there is more mobility and aggressiveness and it opens space for the attacking midfielder to make late runs into the area and finish. Although in Marco Roses's system at Salzburg the attacking midfielder would bypass the striker (usually Dabbur) and get in behind the defence sometimes. Some tinkering needed yet.
  6. Currently I'm using this (trying to emulate Marco Rose's formation at Salzburg). Sometimes I drop back the Central Midfield - Defend to Defensive Midfielder - Defend. Only role I'm not sure about is the center left striker (I alternate between Target Man - Attack and Complete Forward - Attack).
  7. I think in some champions league matches, Liverpool played with a mezzala (Milner) on the same side as an Inside Forward (Salah) to great effect. I have one tactic where i use an Inside Forward on attack and a Mezzala on attack on the same side of the pitch and it works wonders...
  8. What roles would you give to Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke?
  9. with the new roles (specially the mezzala and the segundo volante) it would be interesting to know how would you try to replicate Brazil 82!
  10. Could you develop it? I find it that in a flat 4-4-2, the middfield shouldnt have any player on a defend duty (specially central midfielders, havent tried with a wide midfielder on defend). The strenght of a flat 4-4-2 is it's flatness and compactness. I feel that with a central midfielder on a defend duty it creates a lot of gaps. With all midfielders on a support duty (maybe on wide midfielder on an attack duty) most adapting and tweaking you make is with the defensive line (one of cleons n.1 rule - checking the defensive line) - either prevent passes into
