  1. That makes sense but it’s not something I have trouble with. I’m really happy with my defensive play/time of possession, now I just want to to find the optimal tempo for my squad. I’ve watched @Rashidi’s videos about breaking down opponents and have found them helpful, but still struggle to get good shots on goal. In my situation I don’t think it’s only against bad teams. I play against a lot of 4231’s and I play a 4123 that’s very tiki taka-esque.
  2. Good advice, thank you for your input. My 1860 team is the best team in the Bundesliga in 2033 and I've won 5 straight Bundesliga titles. Naturally a lot of teams sit back against me and I play on a lower tempo to break them down - recently though my goals are primarily coming from set pieces and I'm not getting lots of good shots on goal. My team has great physicals and I'm wondering if a higher tempo attack with my very high press defense would catch my opponent out of possession more quickly and result in more goals...
  3. In @AceAvenger's great gegenpressing thread, he pointed out the below attributes to be key to pressing, but I'm more interested in tempo when my team has the ball. The below attributes were listed in the thread as important for pressing: Aggression, Anticipation, Determination, Teamwork, Work rate, Acceleration, Stamina I'm curious which attributes benefit a more up-tempo attack as opposed to a slower build up?
  4. Thanks, I used that thread a lot and really like it. @AceAvenger pointed out the below attributes to be key to pressing, but I'm more interested in tempo when my team has the ball. The below attributes were listed in the thread as important for pressing: Aggression, Anticipation, Determination, Teamwork, Work rate, Acceleration, Stamina I'm curious which attributes benefit a more up-tempo attack as opposed to a slower build up.
  5. What are the different traits to look for in players when looking to play a higher tempo game vs a lower tempo game? Example, wanting to attack like Klopp's Liverpool vs. Pep's Barca. I've seen many discussions on the board focused around patient play - players needing concentration, composure, off the ball, decisions, etc. From what I've gathered, mentals seem to outweigh physical and technical traits for a lower tempo game. For a higher tempo, I'm assuming more physical/technical attributes are favored. Any insight here? I'm a very strong club and am trying to determine which t
  6. What are the different traits to look for in players when looking to play a higher tempo game vs a lower tempo game? Example, wanting to attack like Klopp's Liverpool vs. Pep's Barca. I've seen many discussions on the board focused around patient play - players needing concentration, composure, off the ball, decisions, etc. Most of the traits for lower tempo seem to be more mental. For a higher tempo, I'm assuming more physical attributes are favored. I'd be happy to get your take - what traits best suit a higher tempo attack and why they do so. Thanks!
  7. I have a few different types of midfielders so I was thinking at the LCM I can play a DLP-D or DM-D and then a CM-S as the RCM. I don’t have much experience with the CM role but like the tweaks I can make with different plays. For example, with Peeters I’d want him to play a bit riskier but with a more physical, better work rate player I can maybe try to make him into more of a box to box type.
  8. Good advice, I appreciate your input. My 433 midfield looks like this: RCM - Peeters (AP-S) LCM - Mezzala-S DM - Stepanyukc (DLP-D)
  9. I'd appreciate some help with my midfield roles in this 4-2-3-1. The two players attached both have great playmaking ability - wondering if a double-pivot would work in such an attacking formation? I'm also not opposed to a deep 4-2-3-1. As you can see by my tactic, I'm planning to play a gegenpress/total football hybrid tactic. Thanks for your input!
  10. Great suggestions, I'll have to try it out! These are the two formations I'm starting with - see next post (Mauer excluded since I don't have him yet...). I have a loaded midfield but here are the top three in my 4-1-2-3. Peeters is probably my favorite player, super versatile. Not sure how to get the best out of him in a 4-2-3-1, feel like he'll be underutilized as a standard CM-S.
  11. Good advice, I was set on a 4-1-2-3 but I can explore a 4-2-3-1... I'll share what I end up with. Thanks again!
  12. This is great info, thank you for pointing out the differences between F9, CF-S, and DLF-S. I'm currently trying to build my squad to prepare for the new season, and want to play my 4-1-2-3 with two IF-S that sit narrow and get further forward to score goals. I have great players for this option. With your experience with Cavani, Giroud, and lacazette as CF-S/DLF-S, do you find that they contribute as much as Joao Felix as a F9? The only option I can think of where a CF-S/DLF-S would be beneficial with this formation and style is if the opponent has a DM that is neutralizing my F9 fro
  13. @Ö-zil to the Arsenal! Excellent thread, I'm learning a ton about player development from you as I try to implement total football with my 1860 Munich side in 2033. I've won the league 5 times in a row now but always struggle in the knockout stages of the CL. Question for you and the board, I have some players with great attributes for the F9 role, but they've been unable to learn "comes deep to get ball." From what I've read, this may be a dealbreaker on FM (regardless of FM18 or FM20). Is there an alternative role to play these guys in as a single striker in a 4-1-2-3? With the F
