  1. I'm trying to replicate him since FM18 and still have to make a lot of concessions. Hoffenheim like build sloly from the back (last season they was one of the top bundesliga teams in this stat), but is very fast, direct and effective when decide to attack. Another thing they do a lot and I can't replicate without keep changing TIs every five minutes of the game is slow down the game when in attack, keeping the ball and going back to defense to lure the adversary defensive line forward and open space for the runners.
  2. I can only imagine how deliciously insane must be watching this formation scoring goals! What a funny chaos must be
  3. I have deselected Pass Into Space and am now testing one or two tweaks. My intent is to have a team which plays confortably with possession (specially in the first and central thirds), but is aggresive and swift attacking (mostly relying in my CB and my DM to start the attacks). I don't want to win every possession battle, but to be more balanced between keeping the ball and being vertical. I tought with Pass Into Space would help me, maybe just a lower tempo and not selecting play out of defence may be an option. I have quality players, Kolarov crossing is 17, Florenzi 15, my b
  4. Because I felt the Strikers was too far apart from the rest of my team, and this was the only configuration where they seemed close enough. But I honestly didn't tought about the rushing midfilders. Maybe tweaking the Mezzala to attack instead of support? Or changing the mezzala to a roaming playmake and the BBM to CM in attack?
  5. I'm totally open to sugestions! I tried change my WBs to support and it's working, but I feel there is a gap between my CMs and STs. Thinking about changing the CMS mentalities to attack. Or drop team mentality to Standard or even Counter. Maybe both. I want the crossings, but I want then to be more efficient. Because, at least for me, 10/61 is a waste and I can't identify what is causing this.
  6. How about Subasic? The guy is pretty much getting Croatia to the finals himself one penalty after another.
  7. I ticked work ball into box, but didn't noticed much difference. In the game with 45 crosses I've played with this instruction selected during the entire game.
  8. Hello, people! I have posted before asking for advices on how to replicate 17/18 Hoffenheim in FM 18. You guys helped me A LOT and, after testing and tweaks, I created this: I've tried to not only recreate Nagelsmann's playing style, but also to adapt it to the italian way because, well... I am managing in Italy, so I focused in some main characteristics: - A pacient building focused in my DC and my DM, these two then choose if we remain pacient or if we try to be more direct; - Something similar to Hoffenheim's vertical positional play: when attacking, my WBs turn i
  9. Thanks! I'll try your suggestions and update with how is working out. I loved @herne79 thread, will help A LOT. About analysis, I like this one in the Bundesliga YouTube channel. Is more fresh and use real life footages: Some things I don't think are possible to replicate like this vertical positional play and the Vogt role, but with TI attacking mentality my CMs will probably touch the box more often. In structure I am trying to decide between structured and flexible, I'm going to do some tests. I want to exploit the fact that Roma have some good passing players in t
  10. Hi, mates. I've been trying to replicate the Hoffenheim's playing style in my Roma save and, studying Hoffenheim's games and looking at the way other people are translating Nagelsmann's tactics to FM, I see a common problem: people always try to replicate the team's combination of possesion and verticality with higher tempo and shorter passes. But after watching a lot of games, I tough that a team with lower tempo, but more direct passes (probably medium, don't decided yet) would be closer to real life. They usually have a lot of possession in the fist and second thirds, and only when the
