  1. Ah, I interrogated that as balanced passing or slightly more direct passing (as in situational depending on opposition). But I suspected as much... Considering that the op is looking at cautious or even defensive mentality, how would you adapt if you where forced to use a cautious mentality? Even higher tempo and a bit higher dl?
  2. @Experienced Defender just out of curiosity, what mentality would you run that 442 on?
  3. Yeah, I'm six league games in and it's looking really bleak... we won the first game thanks to one penalty and one free kick, those are the only two goals we've scored. I'm currently living in a campervan, so no access to a computer anymore until June, then I'll probably have to rethink the hole deal... I'm wondering whether a very attacking mentality and lots of attacking duty might be the answer... I'm gonna think about that one, this tactic is obviously a bust...
  4. @scratchmonkey That looks more sensible than my attempt! A proper striker up top would probably make the world of difference for me... good luck to you! I'm through pre season and the first three games now. I haven't changed anything in the tactic for these games in order to have a good foundation for analysis. Results have been varied; one win, one loss and one draw in the competitive games. We won all pre season games, but i would not take anything from that... I have some conclusions son far though: - Our possession is dangerously low, between 20 and 30 %. While I was expecting lo
  5. Fair enough! Here goes nothing... I actually agree with you, at a first glance I was really perplexed by this formation. It's way out of my depth, I never play strikerless and always with a four man back line so a lot of firsts for me! When looking at the squad however, it looks pretty balanced and has some pretty complete players that can slot into a lot of different roles. This is good, because I'm gonna be putting a lot of square pegs in round holes... The simple thing to do when presented with the 5-2-2-1-0 would be to put the AM as a SS and pretend that he is a striker. I have a
  6. Holy scrap, that's a wierd one! Haha, I'll see what I can do.
  7. @Jambo98 You can give me a formation as well, though I will probably not be able to play until June...
  8. Oh? I had missed that. I'm currently doing a year in New Zealand and having a hard time keeping up with the Swedish news... I guess Kiese Thelin is still available? I'd probably go for either him or Isak in the DLF role then. Maybe even call up Carlos Strandberg (is he still a good prospect in fm19?). For the other forward Berg was the guy to go for, but I'm guessing that he has been seriously downgraded in 19? If so that could be a bit problematic... Isak could probably work. I've never gotten any good performances out of Guitar to, he seem to be consistent in being poor in game (althou
  9. As far as the forwards are concerned I would agree with you that a TM is the proper way of doing it, with Toivonen fulfilling this role at the moment. When Ibrahimovic was active he was probably more employed as a CF (or even a Trequartista), but that was under Hamrèn, who did not follow the traditional 4-4-2 regime... If you find that a TM does not work as you want, I'd go for a DLF instead. The other forward should probably be a PF. As you say, all players have a defensive responsibility, and you often hear the Swedish coaches talk about "the first press" (förstapressen). With this
  10. It's quite interesting what criteria people use to define "major" =) Lets go for top 14 by population (because it's easily available on Wikipedia...): Previous CL-winning teams in parenthesis. Only EU-countries: 1. London (Chelsea) 2. Berlin 3. Madrid (Real Madrid) 4. Rome 5. Paris 6. Bucharest (Steaua Bucharest) 7. Vienna 8. Warsaw 9. Budapest 10: Prague 11. Sofia 12. Brussels 13. Stockholm 14. Amsterdam (Ajax) Missing on the list if all of European countries is considered: Moscow Kyiv Minsk Belgrade (Red star Belgrade) So a potential list of
  11. Yep, as far as positioning is concerned he drops quite deep in the build up, but still gets into the opposition box to finish of chances, keeping it simple all the way. Awesome! Defensively, I almost get a 4-6-0 with a midfield diamond thanks to the DF dropping down. This is another reason why I want a player with lots of pace and work rate. If the players lacks those qualities he just wont get up fast enough to provide an offensive outlet during the attacking transitions.
  12. I've actually grown quite fond of the DF recently as the deeper forward role when needed, both in a pairing togheter with a poacher in a 4-4-2 and as a lone forward, such as in this system. The performance is very dependent on the system, In this save I rotated between Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew as my primary forward options. Both players are pacy with lots of work rate. The good thing about this is that they close down the opposition CD:s and GK, wich ment I got a few of those theft goals were we capitalised on a simple mistake. Cheap gols from very little effort (and low risk). I did some
  13. Allright, one season done and time to review the results. I drew some serious inspiration from Hernes Attacking and Possession-thread. The challenge was to reinvigorate the Swansea way, injecting a positive and forward thinking philosophy with emphasis on possession into a team who seams to have lost their identity. Team: Swansea City AFC Media prediction: 18:th Bord expectation: Avoid relegation Additional settings: No transfers first window, Now, I was looking to go back to the style and formation that got the welshmen promoted in the first place and made them a Premier League stap
  14. Cool, my first attempt at an assymetric formation. I'm gonna try to keep it pretty simple, with the principles to use some pressing and a controlled build up play. For PI:s, only the CB:s have the Close down much less instruction, to try and keep them in line and covering. Formation and instructions:
  15. Count me in. As far as club goes, all your suggestions from France, Spain and Germany seem fine to me. I'm not to over excited about Portugal or Holland.
