  1. Funny I always felt I needed a defensive role in CM on the side of the attacking wide forward...but your reasoning makes perfect sense if partnered with a less aggressive full back role. I'll experiment. Cheers!
  2. Appreciate the detailed response, definitely has given me some food for thought! Always felt Balanced was too passive a mentality for a bigger club - in that it was counter intuitive to pare back mentality when you are expected to be the more attacking side in most games. That said, in a top heavy formation like 4231 maybe it helps to provide some...clarity...in attack. Anywho, I'll give this a go tomorrow and see where it takes me! Cheers!

Looking at something tilted towards possession but not precious about it - just trial and error I guess! I've tried to keep TIs to a minimum to keep it simple, just hard to always see which one (or combinations) is making a tangible difference - though I do think this years ME makes it easier to do that. As for set pieces - I'm getting there, tweaking as I go and abandoning an ill-conceived long throw routine...

In fact, I'm passive in attack too, seem to have to work very hard for the most basic openings and I understand that being Real, other teams will be defensive, I just seem to be making it really easy for other
