    Johan Cruyff's 3-4-3 Diamond (Very Fluid)

    I've followed this post (like many) and love @Ö-zil to the Arsenal! 's stuff. I've played around with the original formation a bunch and found a new take that is really working for me. I love the Cruyff Diamond and think this really is a great representation for FM18. It very much holds the Diamond and shifts nicely from a 3-6-1 type shape in defense and transition to a 3-3-4 in attack. PIs: Everyone with the exception of the middle CD is set to "Mark Tighter" SK S = Distributes to CD Off Center CD's = Fewer Risky Passes AM A = Move Into Channels, Hold Up Ball Both IF A = Stay Wider F9 S = Roam from Position
  4. Taking a shot! Here's my take: As for PI's: GK - None CWBs - None CDs - Tackle Harder, Mark Tighter HB - Tackle Harder, Mark Tighter CAR - None AM - Mark Tighter, Fewer Risky Passes, Move Into Channels, Hold Up Ball, Mark DM CF S - Mark Tighter, Move into Channels CF A - Mark Tighter Most of the TI's/PI's are designed to create and fast counter-attack (Pass into Space, Move into channels) and a good defensive press (Close down more, Get Stuck In, Use tighter marking). AM marking the DM should help with a high press

    These look very cool. What TI, PI, Structure, and Mentalities do you use for these?

    I think it's a cool set up. Do you have any team instructions or player instructions?

    Tácticas del "Maestro" Tabarez

    Mi espanol no es genial, pero empezaria con also como esta ... una defensa solida con presionar a los delanteros para ganar la pelota y contadores rapidos 4-4-2 (Centrocampista derecho como centrocampista defensivo derecha) Contador/Estructuardo TI: Jugar Narrower GK = GK D RFB = FB A RCD = CD D LCD = CD D LFB = FB A RM = IW S RDM = DLP D LCM = BWM S (PI: Carrar Mas) LM = IW S RST = DF S (PI: Carrar Mas) LST = DF S (PI: Carrar Mas) Esto es solo una suposición de mi parte después de mirar un par de artículos. Creo que este sería un buen punto de partida.

    @Ö-zil to the Arsenal! Love to see you back posting! The new formation is very interesting. Care to share your TI's, PI's, Mentality, and Structure?
  11. One can only hope. 🧙‍♂️
  12. @herne79 wrote a very interesting article about using the attacking mentality with very few TI's and I think it achieves a similar look to what you're talking about.

    I like this tactic a lot. I’d be excited to see your 4-1-3-2 as well!
  14. It IS an Inter replication :-) but I think it would work well with the current Juve side. The 4-2-3-1 against 4 at the back formations and the 4-3-1-2 against 3 at the back formations.
