About Kolarov's missing tooth

  1. I wouldn't pay too much attention to those red zones. I've tried using 4-2(DM)-3-1 formations in the past and can't say I've noticed significant problems. I did have relatively positive roles in the DM slots (DLP-S and SV-S were favoured combination) which may have helped - I can see this would be more of a problem with say, and anchorman and DLP-D, especially the players in the AM line are on attacking duties, Also had fairly forward thinking full backs too.
  2. I've had the most success using positive mentality with generally support roles on FM20, but I suspect there is no right answer here. You can probably achieve high possession onc autious with more aggressive roles/team instructions. I barely touch PIs but generally encouraging attacking plays to press more urgently helps. I tend to use a playmaker at the base of a central midfield three or four.
  3. Really? Apart from the roaming on the WBs (which I wouldn't agree with Fosse is a feature of Leicester's play, their full backs are relatively discipline in this regard) I'm not sure there's anything there that looks particularly off, especially if the system is set up at the lower end of the mentality scale. More inclined to agree if set to Attacking.
  4. I've read the thread more thoroughly than I care to admit. I appreciate it's about how the whole thing works in tandem, but poor contribution from the striker is really the only thing that isn't working broadly as hoped. I could play around with other roles etc but then one starts unpicking one's whole strategy. I do regularly adjust other roles as a matter of course anyway, often to try and get more support to the striker (or at least get more bodies up the pitch), and it has minimal effect. Just for clarity I haven't been trying new roles/duties at random, but deliberately to try and create a better goal threat, to find space, etc, in response to issues I'm seeing. But the issue just changes, with the end result being middling ratings for the forward. I could set up a new thread but this might be an issue others experience when setting up a possession tactic (clearly at least one other person does) so thought it might be a sensible point of discussion here, especially as it already has people's attention.
  5. Just to follow up on 99's point, getting consistent performances from strikers is the one issue I'm having with a possession based tactic. I've tried multiple roles and duties with no permanent solution. If anyone has ideas here it'd be a massive help.
