    Most probably yes. 


    Yes, as well as on the flanks. 

    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.

    Getting consistent performances from strikers (or anyone else for that matter) isn't just about the striker and his role.  It's about everything in combination (the theme of this thread).  Is he creating enough space for himself?  Are other players creating space for him?  Who and how is feeding him the ball to shoot?  How are they getting the space to receive the ball in order to make the pass/cross to the striker

    Unless you've done something really odd with your system, a consistently underperforming striker will most likely have little to do with the striker.  If you want ideas, read the thread.  If you still get stuck you could create a new thread, post your detailed tactical setup (screenshots ideally), describe the problems and someone may be able to give you more specific advice.

    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.
