I started a save with Hamburg where I tried to do "everything right" or mostly right than not. In the first season I had like 25 games without losing, but half of the games were draws, I still managed to promote the team to the Bundesliga tho. In the second season I made a lot of changes to the squad and things started very well, and even if I'm at 3rd place I still feel unsatisfied. I feel the team going down the sink in the second half of the season and I don't know what to do, I kinda block.
Major points of what I want:
I want to have a possession heavy brand of football
I want to score a lot a goals, and them to be distributed by everyone in my attack
My tought process with this tactic:
With the TIs I wanted a lot of short passes, the team to play from deep and be patient to the point that players create a crack in the opposition defence. Explaining briefly I want short but quick passes that put the opposition on their toes.
So I need triangles, but I don't know how to make that happen and still have penetration so I ended up with this structure that I normally see here. I want to know how to create space and what to do at certain times on the matches. I feel my wingers not having space or not doing things right, and I feel like they don't want to play in tight spaces.
I ususally don't use 2 playmakers, but I love the way Barcelona with Guardiola played so I tried. I thought the best way to create space for my AP was to get my AML wide and up the pitch, but I don't think that resulted.
I tried to build a good squad and a little different from player to player.
Some players that I think there are relevant:
I think I know how to use them, but I really don't know, at least that well.
I have a lot of problems playing against 4-2-3-1 and I don't know when to change my formation, I tought I need to change to oppose the opposition number in the different sectors but I see me very relutant to do that.
What is happening in my games:
4-1 vs Schalke (L)
I just feel that Schalke was a lot better individually, I couldn't do nothing.
1-1 Vs Freiburg
Creating from deep:
I was having problems, my players have space but they don't even try.
A lot of times I see this happening, my player has someone free but he just makes a stupid pass 20 meters way from the destination.
My forward needing a babysitter because he is too much alone.
So my AP puts the ball on my LD to put the cross for noone.
I understand that I'm making overloads in the middle.
If anyone wants something more I can provide.
