  1. Could you perhaps make that database available? I would like to try it out.
  2. I am interested in seeing your tactic. I’m a big fan of the 4-1-4-1 and always look for inspiration.
  3. Yes, MR/ML is incredible to keep the width. It was something we discussed a lot during FM 18 Wien we tried to recreate Man City´s general characteristic of using two really wide players. Fullbacks are also really good at not hugging the opposition fullback in the final third. It is a bit annoying that a role like a Winger isnt really wide when the play gets closer to goal, but I think it is because of the AMRL strata. I think that strata should be seen as the wide forward strata - something we had in previous versions. So whenever I want a wide attacker to stay wide I put them in the midfield strata. There are some downsides to the pressing as the oppositions wide defenders usually have a bit more time om the ball before the WM begins pressure him.
  4. Good work @Trimisiyu. Do you switch between mentalities? Or is there one you use more than others?
  5. My Dortmund side are doing quite well doing the second season. So teams starts being REALLY defensive. Like this Zenit-side: "Ait, boys go for the space at the corner flags!"
  6. God, I love the look of that 4-1-4-1, Cleon. And fantastic read. Can't wait for your deeper analysis.
  7. I don’t understand this. Why does it make it harder for the players to find the strikers that has moves into channels?
  8. Indeed. Also shows Fernandinho versatility. Incredible. That makes sense. And it can probably work well with PPM Comes Deep and the Play Out Defense TI.
  9. A million dollar question. I don't know, to be honest.
  10. Use the PI with stay wider for the two central midfielders - it makes them split so they don’t bunch up too much. That’s what worked for me of course.
  11. Really good post. So to move on we can say there is a clear split of the individual mentality of the attacking unit (wingers, midfielders and strikers) and the defensive one. I am also being more convinced that we maybe should use a 4-1-2-2-1 (classic 4-3-3) in FM instead of the 4-1-4-1. The wingers need to be high and wide and put pressure on the opponents fullbacks simply because of the position they take. The two midfielders need to move high up as well. So, how do we make that mentality split? Where do we start?
