  1. I did read somethings in the Line and Diamonds thread and I removed the press, play out of defence, dribble less and tight marking. I'm seeing a lot more flair in my game. My possession is not 70%, but I'm starting to be okay with it because of the difference in counting possession. I would say I demolished the expectations, but I'm barely winning. I don't score much too be honest and I think I have the players to do it. I see a lot of play by the wings and not so much by the middle. Not that I just want to play by the middle, but I see a lot of problems in open up space in the middle for a killer ball to be put.
  2. I'm reading Lines and Diamonds from THOG and now I'm really understanding all my problems.
  3. So, I've been playing and I'm being successful with my Peterborough side, but I feel everytime that I'm keeping my team from reaching full potential. I can't post game ss, because I can't change the language, so I thought about using Genie instead to take screanshots of my players. I don't like to use Genie, but after seeing my father using this in english I thought it was a good idea for this. My tactic: SK(S) WB(S) - CD(S) - CD(S) - WB(s) DM(D) CM(S) - MEZ(A) IF(A) - CF(S) - IF(S) The back four have fewer risky passes; IFs have stay narrower and thats all. TIs: pass shorter, PoD, dribble less, take ball to the box, counter-press, take short kicks, much higher LoE, much higher DL, tight marking, prevent destibution and close down much more. I play with a positive mentality. Now the players: CBs: PPMS: Bring ball from defence, thight marking PPMS: Stops play PPMS: Brings ball from defence and the other like this one. DMC: PPMS: dictates tempo, comes deep to get the ball PPMS: Comes deep CMS: PPMS: Gets in the box, gets further forward, tries killer balls, plays one twos, switches ball to the other flank PPMS: Tries killer balls, gets forwrd, dictates tempo, switches ball to the other flank PPMS: Comes deep, killer balls, plays one twos, dictates tempo PPMS: Dictates tempo, tries killer balls, plays one twos Wingbacks: PPMS: plays from right, comes forward PPMS: plays from left, knocks ball, goes to the line Wingers: PPMS: Knocks ball, cuts from the left, plays from left PPMS: Custs from right, plays one twos, enters the box, place shots PPMS: Comes deep, cuts from both wings, killer balls, run with the ball, plays one twos PPMS: Gets in the box, cuts from both wings, plays one twos strikers: PPMS: Place shots, killer balls, plays one twos. This is my team, the other players I don't think are that important to put here. Last season I used quite the same tactic and I got Malcom scoring 20 times in the league. The thing is I feel my front 3 super isolated sometimes and more often than not I get all of them with 6.5 or less. My striker gets a lot in scoring positions, but there's always a defender that antecipates him when there is a cross. I hear a lot about space and movement, but I don't feel that in my team even if I tick roam from position. I don't want some plug responses, I want to hear explanations to understand better.
  4. I came to the same conclusion in the following posts like you can see. Now I'm confused.
  5. Yes, but I was thinking and doesn't make much sense in the attacking phase the TI still being in play, it should be only in the transition because it's the last position that he occupied. After that he shouldn't be following any instructions, I guess?
  6. All phases of play are all in involvement with each other at every time. The time you get the ball back you start the attacking transition and if you use an higher LoE your striker will be too high and isolated in that moment. I don't know if it works that way, but I saw a lot more support upfront lowering the LoE.
  7. The thing that striked me the most was the LoE one. I just followed that advice myself and I see my team keeping possession a lot better and having a lot more support.
  8. I can't change the language of my game, I tried, but it doesn't change from Portuguese even with steam on english. That's why I don't post images.
  9. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hIGwBIfeWNqJrCWrioD4N8h9aQL7YFP8 Can you give me an opinion on this? I tried to base this schedules around your guidelines in one of your videos, I may have ripped off completely the defense schedule , but I would like you to have a look if you may.
  10. What y'all do when the other team presses high? I'm struggling with this as my players only pass backwards. Meanwhile, I also tried to put a CM(s) with a AP(a), but this just doesn't work. The Ap has "gets forward", but he tracks back a lot and the CM it's like he doesn't exist at all. All my players have all great antecipation, composure, off ball, decisions, name it, but I still struggle to get the transitions going and then scoring. Pretty often I see my wide players being off even if I've Malcom and Bailey on the wings.
  11. Anw, my advice is to see a lot of football. Stop the game, see, run the game and see what happened. Read a lot about the game tactically and then you will know what to do in the game. And if by then you still don't know, all you need to grasp is the concepts in game and what they do. I get frustrated a lot, even if 70% is only my ego and super high expectations, but I see my problem is more about football than the about the game. Watching a lot real football helps, because you will notice patterns and how to block other patterns.
  12. What he said was true. How many coaches don't make bad decisions during a game because they can't see? Even the better ones fail at sometimes, look at Pep the other day.
  13. I don't know about the CF(s) role, but usualy I want the striker as a DLF(s) to track back as much as possible to have a 3 vs 2 on the midfield. But this is pointless without knowing what happens game wise.
  14. Whats your idea on the other flank? Btw, glad to see another Portuguese around here ahah
  15. In Pep's world every player uses certain channel. That helps stretching the defense. And we see so many times the CMs exploiting the half spaces while the wingers are wide and then they cut inside once in the final third. If I use two IFs sitting narrow or two roles that narrow the pitch, what I see is a team that becomes too predictable, too narrow and I see mine not having space while working that way. I thought about using wingers or dropping them to WMs, but I have this view of the winger role being too disconnected from the team and the second option is not really option because they don't press at all like wide AMs having attributes or not. The mezzala idea is not bad, but I think he is too incisive and doesn't playmake that much. I don't know if I'm making sense, and sorry if I'm misspeaking English at sometimes.
