  1. Yeah it's a shame, hopefully not a problem for the next game
  2. I leave my set pieces completely blank and comfortably score 3/4 of all goals through set pieces / knock downs & deflections from set pieces. Most other chances just seem to be smashed into the side-netting.
  3. I know, but that's an example from someone who knows the game better than literally anyone else giving some tangible advice that you can implement. I think that a lot of people on here are frustrated at the sometimes quite abstract nature of advice. No one want to have their hand held throughout the game, but a nudge in the right direction can do the world of good.
  4. I feel your pain mate. Sometimes there must be relatively simple answers. Like, I have a great F9 who I'd like to build a team around, which other attacking roles would complement him best? What midfield roles would help me get the best out of him? The answer is invariably 'every role is suitable, you can make anything work'. Fo instance, I heard Miles on the Deep Lying Podcast say that a 4-1-2-2-1 has to have a BWM in midfield. That's the kind of stuff a lot of players are after.
  5. Tried this is in the latter stages of the champion's league with Ajax, worked incredibly well, winning the final on pens. Clean sheets and a few goals here and there against Bayern, City and UTD, well done!
  6. Your goals scored is astonishing. Who's your top scorer?
  7. Absolute quality post JaYmZeE. There's lots of great advice in these threads but rarely is it so succinct and understandable in terms of what's happening and why.
  8. Thanks for the responses, some interesting thoughts here. As it stands, I can't make the regista function well in the tactic. He gets around the same amount of passes as the fullbacks, and strangely seems to absolutely kill our goalscoring threat. My game year is 2019 and Wilshere has barely played in the last 4 years so his physical stats are completely shot - everything is around 10-11 or below so I think that rules him out of BBM and RPM. I'm thinking about the Enganche role for him, as a back up for Ozil. Any ideas on striker+wide attacking mid roles to get the best out of the Enganche?
  9. Hi chaps, first time posting so be gentle. I'm a big fan of all of the threads on here, and even though it's not always easy to put the theory into "game terms" I find the tactics chat pretty darn interesting. Some background: Love the game but basically don't understand it. Generally, each year I struggle until I find a "game breaking" tactic and run with it. This has left me feeling hollow and dead inside - after all, why buy a game and basically get someone else to play it for you? So I tried coming up with something that's sort of my own. With the help of Cleon's possession thread and the good work at strikerless.com I hit upon something that really works: F9 IF(S) AP(S) BBM RPM DM(D) WB(S) CD(D) CD(D) FB(A) GK Control/Very Fluid Lower Tempo Fairly Wide Use Offside Trap Close Down More Tighter Marking Play Out of Defence Shorter Passing Look for the Overlap Work Ball into Box Whipped Crosses Roam for Position It plays nice, controlled football with a mean defence and a few goals thrown in. So, down to the issue. I've just taken over of a faltering gunners side, winless in the league in November. My first act was to bring back the free transferred "saviour of English football" Jack "I was only holding it for a friend" Wilshere. Now, I have had an unrequited love affair with Andrea Pirlo since his early Ancelotti-Milan days. The man is the footballing equivalent of Byron, Shelley and Keats, an aesthetic romantic (greatly appreciated in his latter years.) This is what I want big Jack Wilshere to become. I know he might not be up to it, but I like him, he's technical, smart and aggressive, and hopefully in the dm spot he and his glass legs won't get battered around too much. So I'm here asking not for a tactic or a set of instructions, but for some ideas and hopefully a bit of discussion. I'm not averse to changing shape/roles etc and am by no means an expert at this side of the game. I've toyed with a deep 4-2-3-1, 4-1-4-1 and 4-1-2-3 but can't get the Reg running the game. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
