  1. I was following this forum topic loosely & then when I got interested to replicate/emulate Pellegrino Matarazzo's Stuttgart 3-2-4-1/3-4-2-1/4-3-3 hybrid tactic.....just uncanny the positions of the flank players. Even Silas can be compared to a modern day Jair if he keeps developing. I mean he's the leading scorer on my FM21 save & in real life too. The Endo role is bang on similar to what Gentile plays. More playmaking from one of the ball playing defenders & they don't use a traditional Libero but more a BPD on Cover. I just don't use a RPM (like in @crusadertsartactic) but rathe
  2. Same here....lost the typical 3 section tab for the Tactical Tablet over the weekend. Posted upload during one match..... my current view now:
  3. I used the 4-2-3-1 tactic with Bodø/Glimt. So a bit fluid for me to transition from their usual 4-3-3 setup to 4-2-3-1. I'm regularly getting a XG in the mid 2s anyhow with my emulation tactic. Any how I gave the 4231 Lock Key Overload a go again for fun vs Rosenborg - attaching my 1st Half Stats & Shot Map
  4. @crusadertsar First time trying out your tactic as a plug-n-play, my XG was over 4.0+ 🤩😳. I won 3-0 but honestly should’ve been 7 or 8-0.
  5. I remember Cleon talked about this in his TeaandBusquets blog that you can create a great Possession style tactic using Structured or Highly Structured tactics. Pretty neat tactic you going there, mate! I'm going to give the Cautious mentality a go. I've found my version of Real Sociedad in a non Top 5 League to experiment on tactics - Bodø/Glimt......Especially if you can still have Jens-Petter Hauge in their squad.
  6. @crusadertsar How is your team's avg position w/o the ball? Does it look to be more like 4-4-2 or some kinda 4-5-1/4-3-3 in defending? The front 6 reminds me of (in recent years) of the Man U tactical setup you highlighted in your Sir Alex Strikerless Masterclass article (attached snap below) less than 3 months ago...just that position areas are different obviously. That Rivelino role on your setup reminiscent of KDB the past 2-3 years with City or even Haidara with Salzburg during the Rose tenure.
  7. Papu's role now in 3-4-1-2 is AP/s bc he often drops deep from his advanced position to areas btwn midfield & defense
  8. Really quick: CF/s might be the ticket with Duvan or even DLF/s bc of how often he roams to the flanks & is connected to both Gosens or one of Gomez & a Freuler/Pasalic in their diamond rotational overloads Robin Gosens has been compared to Marcos Alonso circa 2016/17 so DW can be a good shout. For Hans Hateboer: I've used a CWB/s similar to an old Chelsea Conte tactic @Rashidi used to emulate Moses that winning season & it worked really well with Andrea Conti in FM17. Though I think WB/s would be better Attached my old FM17 tactical screenshot for kicks....ki
  9. Not really a possession tactic yet Atalanta were top 5 Possession team in Serie A the past 3 seasons...I had a better effort emulating their tactic in FM17 & 18. FWIW..
  10. I only used this tactic twice....have to train one of my DMs or use Ginter for example as the Libero. Similar idea to what @crusadertsar did in his 3-4-3 TF tactic with his Libero. Like I said I'm not one to ever use Hold Shape...though you can see in this 3-4-1-2 where it's necessary esp if playing in Italy or say in Germany if you would like to that 3412/3421 Nagelsmann did at Hoffenheim. Maybe for a Mentality standpoint, I'd favor Attacking since it's supposed to emulate Gasperini's Atalanta...or just ramp up the tempo. TM (Duvan role) & Treq (Ilicic role) stay wider. TM allowed
  11. All I was saying is that I didn't like how it worked on my Gladbach save when I used a emulated Gasperini tactic that had TI Hold Shape. Stuck with a more Rose tactic (actually @crusadertsar Total Football 4-3-3 emulating Barca in 2010s has worked splendidly with this squad)
  12. Generally no... tend to not use Hold Shape much in my tactics anyhow since it was an option in FM19.. I've found that when I've played with Gladbach, teams that press hard (e.g. apart from the top 2..RBL B04 Freiburg) give them trouble in FM20...like in real life! Lol.....Much depends on how well you develop Zakaria & Neuhaus being mentored by Christoph Kramer (who's a favorite DM to use in most Bundesliga Club saves since FM15 or earlier) One transfer I did pursue was getting Dominik Szoboszlai from Salzburg to add more depth to the midfield corps. Ginter-Elvedi is as solid a CD partnersh
  13. I'm definitely a proponent of simple tactics @crusadertsar. The only TI that never seemed to work for me was Hold-Shape...which is something I noticed works great with Serie A clubs but not necessarily for Bundesliga for some reason...
  14. Re Rudi Garcia: I know this topic is on his Lille side from back in the day but his tactics with Roma that first year for me was awesome. With Totti as a F9, Gervinho in a IF/a or RMD/a role on the RW. Llajic as IW/IF. Roma also had one of the best CD pairings in Serie A w/ Benatia & Castan + the ageless wonder Maicon on RB. Now with midfield @crusadertsar think you're pretty spot on with how Rudi set up Lille. Esp using more of the AP/a to replicate that free #8 role.
