    FM19 Tactical Changes

    Can pressing be divided into units? Such as telling the strikers to close down early, but leaving the rest of the team to stay behind?

    The 4231 Explained

    I'm not sure myself, if a BPD would go long with the TI Play Out of defense. Maybe he would? I don't know the exact threshholds for actions of players.

    The 4231 Explained

    I thought this when looking at the player attributes. I did want one CB to close the gap between defense and midfield, and push away any tall strikers from goal. I must admit I was unsure of what formation to play. I was thinking 4-3-3 at the start, but I had no idea how to distribute midfield roles well. I guess I don't know that in another system, either.

    The C/S pairing would accentuate the qualities of each player. Better than Soler at AMC. He is better than him in a DLP role too, but I need to give Soler playing time to develop. Does a Cover CB help with an attacking WB? I thought that would work. Which role would be safest to convert into an Attack duty? (AMC or the wing forwards) when Zaza plays. If Vietto or Mina play, then they are AF.

    The 4231 Explained

    I was trying it in pre-season. I do admit I'm unsure of this. Cleon says in a thread it's not an issue if the players have good mentals. To him, C/S pairing isn't an issue. I want Parejo closer to goal. He has great Long Shots and even Composure. I should reverse the MF pairing, then? Well- the players to the right and left of him, and the DF. This role is still a striker, right? Well, Zaza is suited for a frontal press. Other options like Vietto- not sure. I tried closing down more in one game, and it seemed like it was an issue for my defense. They had to do lots of last ditch tackles.

    Unsure. There was one game where I used Close Down More, but it also produced a red card for the right full back. If I had to pinpoint an issue, it might be the CM-D. The player should be doing better than he is. Can I make changes that would allow him to play as a BWM-D?

    Not good. Despite me thinking my D-Line is clever and fast enough, it is getting breached by through balls, or even counterattacks. I have exceptional quickness on most of my CB-s, bar the one I brought in to provide a boost in Leadership, Determination and overall class. I really thought I could get away with a high D-Line. A low D-Line is suicidal anyway, as the CB-s aren't great in the air, except for the new guy, and a CB that starts injured.

    How to do well with a 4-2-3-1 when one side of the pitch lacks offensive width? The right back is not as good in attack as the left one. Would putting Rodrigo on IF-A be a bad idea?

    How to (not) use Offside Trap?

    This is news for me. I had never tried to use OT so far, because I usually had slow defenders.
  10. Is a Segundo Volante something one could fit into possession football?

    FM 2018 - Spanish La Liga

    Struggling to decide on what formation to play with Valencia. Is 4-2-3-1 viable, considering there's not much people able to rotate with the attacking players, if fatigue sets in?
  12. What does Adaptability actually do- if it doesn't affect the ability of a coach to train in a foreign country?
  13. Will low Adaptability of a coach mean that even if he has high other attributes, he will be ineffective?
  14. This is another reason why mastering FM is so hard. The gap in quality between teams can mask inadequacies in tactics, and if a person has issues identifying problems, then they'll start to think everything is fine. I've seen Youtube videos where people use tactics that shouldn't make sense according to guides available here, yet they do very well. Is it just the players that are the key to their success?

    Backup DL/DC for Bayern

    Romagnoli might be my best bet, as I specifically want a left-footed CB. Lenglet isn't rated highly on 18.3, and he was my first option.
