I have a few scenarios I'm trying wrap my head around and i was wondering if people could steer me in the right directions.
Background context if it helps: back to back promotions from Conference north to league one. predicted last this season but sitting in 3rd with 16 games left.
Here is a tactic I'm using in the save:
4-2-3-1 : Cautious/Balanced
Higher LOE, Higher DL
Counter, Regroup, Distribute Quickly, Distribute to FB
Play out from back
IF(s) AM(s) W(a)
FB(a) CD CD FB(s)
Scout report shows an Opposition overload of roles IF(s), WB(a) & DLP to come down my right side (Winger side).
I don't know if you I should alter my tactic to deal with this. i was thinking of switching the DLP to that side of the pitch but wasn't sure if I would now need to rebalance the the tactic around this and thus take some attacking threat out of my system.
****I'm not sure if that fact that the opposition is Fluid/Structured or what mentality they tend use in the scout report is going to help here ****
Similar to scenario 1 but this time with a WB bombing down my right side but instead wanting to exploit that space using pass into space towards that winger and maybe moving the DLP over help defend the wing.
The opposition rock up with a narrow 4-3-3 (faced at least 5 teams this season doing this), I usually go to Cautious mentality, hit early crosses and make my wide players use PI mark tightly but don't quite know the best way to exploit their wide areas. I'm more afraid of the quick counter to their front 3.
