  1. Interesting! I like to see problems and solution. Do you test your ideas? This problem is always a problem of mentality. Not in game mentality but yours. Do you want to let opposite come in your side to better counter? Or be more conservative and more patient when the ball is recovered?
  2. Hi! I made a lot of tests (very much) with my wingbacks and the team to have pendeleffekt (tighter marking, close down more, mark the opposite fullback, replace by defensive winger, change mentality, and so on). 1st : Put them on fullback position is not efficient. They stay back and form a 5 man defensive line. 2nd : no solution idoes want I want. The best I find is : Wingback-Attack with close down much more Center midfielders with Mark tighter to force them stay in the center area + Positive mentality But I neglected an important parameter : the player level and his knowledge of the tactic/duty! I noticed a better behaviour with good level player. Indeed, a good positioning/decision/marking is better! If someone has a better solution I will take it! But I think wingback is the good position.
  3. Hi @MrSloth. Do you mean that put the wing back in a lower position works better? Indeed, in your screeshot, the defensive shape is good. I will try it to see the difference. thanks, happy new year!
  4. Hi @slipperyjohns ! I like this kind of tactic and I played with a 3-5-2 since FM2015. But on this FM2018, I face some difficulties to implement the 'pendeleffekt '. That is to say, my 2 wingbacks do not press the opposite wingback. They both stay back and wait the winger has the ball to press him. So, this is often the Mezzala who press the opposite wingback and It's not what I want. I tried to put both wing back on midfield, but they do not come back when the ball is on the other side. I also tried various instructions without success for now. In your Nagelsmann's tactic, does the pendeleffekt work well? Thanks for your post!
