  1. Hi! Summay: Specify, or draw in some way, how to pressure the opponent team in detail. Most of the times I do not want to press a certain player, one of the CBs or a FB. I know I can achieve this by setting opponent instructions on the specific player (close down -> never) but the way my attacker handles this instruction is not effective at all. They just sit and wait whereas I would like to see the player taking distance, but covering the passing line to another player close to him. E.g. Do not close down the opponent LCB. My RW would pressure the opponent LB, my LW would pressure the opponent RB and my ST would cover the passing line to the opponent RCB and the midfielders would take care of the midfielders in a similar way. I feel a pressure system in greater detail could really show the greatness of a football manager. What do you folks think?
  2. Hi! Summary: Play a different formation when attacking than when defending. Say you manage a team and you fancy a 5-3-2. For the sake of this example you implemented this 5-3-2 with two wing backs who want to go forward. The problem with this, in my opinion, is that I do no want both wing backs to go forward at the same time. In order to create a dynamic play style I want to see one of the wing backs go forward and the other one to sit, depending on on which side the ball is or in the case of a counter attack which wing back will most likely be involved. The players are now lined up as a 4-4-2, but the entire formation is out of shape. I want the midfield to properly line up as a 4 men midfield, so the rcm goes more wide. I want the defense to properly line up as a 4 men defense, so all go a bit to the left. When the opposition has the ball again, the players line up as a 5-3-2. What do you folks think?
