  1. It's also worth nothing that Pep has literally done this with Bayern Barca and Man City, he isnt trying to do it with Wigan and he probably couldnt. Even though you can achieve success with a high line being a weaker side it should be much harder as a weaker team.
  2. exactly, sometimes the fullbacks provide the width sometimes the central midfielders sometimes the winger. sometimes its fluid (abidal, iniesta, villa/walker, DKB or Bernardo, Sterling) and sometimes its more fixed (delph or zinchenko or danilo, Silva, Sane). its purely dependent on the players he has. so for fm you have to interpret this for your own squad. only way to achieve the more fluid version is to switch tactics during the game i guess?
  3. I’m not sure this is what everyone is trying to achieve to be honest the inside forwards haven’t stayed wide and unless I’ve completely misunderstood it’s the fullbacks who are providing all the width when wouldn’t we want them closer to the am centrally? I may have misunderstood the screenshot but it doesn’t seem right to me
  4. jeez. hes playing as man utd which youre allowed to do last time i checked. its still an achievement. pep should go manage braintree town and see how he gets on in real life
  5. seconded. this is bang on. all season you have been defending in a 4-1-4-1 and attacking with a 3 man defence, always with the right fullback whether its Walker or stones acting as a 3rd cb in attack. to be honest i think its all very much dependant on the players avaialabe. in midweek when zinchekno played full back his qualities lead to an inverted fullback and sane on the wing is much more of a traditional winger than sterling when he is on the left.
  6. i was literally about to reply with this! although this season with the return of mendy we have seen sterling move to the left and bernardo or mahrez occupy the right flank.
  7. love the thread ozil, comes close to my all time favourite 3-4-3 thread. you mention promoting players straight from the youth side to the senior squad and you have a few players (Fernandes, Xadas and Grimaldo ) who are now part of the first team. how do you decide who to "cull". i often find with a strong side like yours once i get 2/3 years in i have a world class first 11 with an average age of around 23 but also wonderkids with an average age of 19 ish. its a problem i often find and i end up loaning the younger players to top european clubs rather than them only playing a handfull of games.
  8. obviously its easier to say this in hindsight but i completely agree with you re. how the team should have lined up. the team and system you have come up with based upon bielsa is not only more suited to their best player but also tactically a system which brings out the best of the other players other than maybe aguero and dybala. only issue i have is that i dont think sampaoli was trying to replicate this 3-3-1-3 system bielsa uses. i think he was trying to play the 3-4-2-1 formation he played i just think it was completely wrong. he used it for sevilla mutliple times (with players much more suited to it). i enjoy your interpretation on each team even if i dont agree
  9. would this be like Peps Last year at Barca, Cesc and Messi?
  10. these threads have been my favourite this year. especially this one. i find the false 9 role quite frustrating, i have given up and begun to use an Attacking midfielder who arrives late into the box and is heavily involved in build up play, i know this is the inverse of a false 9 but it just works so much better in game. hence why i am so interested in this thread. great stuff.
  11. Im not sure if its just me but i feel like ive read "whats wrong with this tactic" on this forum from the same person at least 5 times. plenty of experienced users have given in depth feedback. might be worth trying to read the feedback and implementing it rather than just moving to a new team and never learning from your mistakes. ive learnt to improve by sticking with my team when failing and really spending time working our what ive done wrong. if you keep moving from team to team, tactic to tactic and after 10 games just a start a thread on here youre wasting yours and everyone else's time.
  12. i agree with this. some of the content from the "big hitters" is outstanding but ive gone back on a few posts with my opinion only to be completely ridiculed. i wouldnt want to lose their contributions and i know, in general, a thread is much better with their input but i think it can get a tad patronizing. just an opinion.
  13. hey, i hate so have a few criticisms on the first reply but these are just my opinions: "Counter" playing on the counter. - i dont think counter mentality actually does that, you would want attacking in my opinion i dont agree with the play out of defence TI, i think they played narrow like you have but were willing to hit early balls over the top to Vardy winning second balls. similarly for work ball into box im not sure you would see Leicester passing around the edge of the box waiting for an opening, i think they were willing to get the ball into the box quickly and early. especially from albrighton. okazaki played deeper than vardy more like a ss or DLF but the roles in the team other than that look good to me. other than maybe kante as a BWM but i get the logic behind the carrillo.
