  1. Just wondering how you lost the game from cross ? counter ? set piece ? etc Also , can you show some match stats espensilly how many shot inside the box ( your team and opponent )
  2. Ask yourself what formation you want to use , 4 backs or 3 backs ? If you play 3 backs can your winger play as wingback since seems like you short on full back . If you play 4 backs how do you set up the midfield base on the team ? After you have a formation set and what would you like to see the team playing possession or counter attack or direct or others ? How to set up the roles and what those roles will do in possession and not in possession , let's say you want to play counter attack . There are lots of article here in forum you can check to understand this game . Good luck and enjoy !
  3. I'm still playing fm18 , to replicate Solskjaer's tactic below just my 2 cents 4-1-2-3 TI' - Attack - attack is too aggressive either in game or irl , I would use control instead. Short passing - I don't think they are playing short , mix imo . High tempo - as I use control , the default tempo is good enough . Focus play down left - once I have Pogba and Martial on left , the team is already focus down to left . This TI is not necessary . Play out of defense - they are not building up from back . Be more expressive - I only use this when I try to knock down the bus . Counter press - don't have this option since I'm still on fm18 . Higher defensive line - not really necessary , and I only use offside trap . Prevent GK - agreed . Press slight - don't have this option since I'm still on fm18. * FM18 / TI what I'm using - prevent GK , pass into space , work ball into box , offside trap . Player roles - I will only point serval players here . CB - Man utd is not playing 2 BPD , 1 is good enough . Pogba - APa is more fit to him since I'd like to see him use the ball often and become the key player . CMa or MEZ is attacking the space , for sure will increase his goal but the ball is not building around him then . Herrera - he is BBM or BWM depends on the opponent Rashford - CFa imo , because he drops deep to bring the ball up .
  4. Agreed . Both cm roles are very important in 4231 . There are several combinations depends on how we set up the backline .
  5. If I use Real Madrid in FM18 . Control / Flexible TI : offside trap / pass into space / prevent gk / work ball into box Benzema is all around the final third and drop deep , not sure which role will fit him that need to test in game. Modric is a MEZs imo , he attacks the box and run wide with ball . Kroos most likely holds the position in the midfield and lands long shot sometime . F9 ( DLFs / CFs ) RMD IFs CMs (DLPs) MEZs DMd WBs CD CD WBd
  6. The problem is ppl don't even know what Mourinho trying to do in real life , how can you replicate his tactic ?
  7. Lots of Man utd fans don't even know what tactic Mourinho trying to play . He try to play counter attack with 41221 ? but the team can't defense well and can't even create counter . Try to control the game face weaker team ? they have possession at the back but once the ball in final third everyone is standing there . Can Mourinho teach the team how to attack ? I don't think so , even though Real Madrid broke the score record . In those seasons , most of the goals were happen in counter with quality of the players .
  8. You mentioned you use various tatic shapes, strategies to defeat his team . That is what I wondering what tatic / shape / mentality you used and how /where you lost the ball cause the opponent team create counter attack . E.g both of your center backs are not fast enough . Did you push your defense line up ? Any formation can beat them , but all depends on how you set up .
  9. What formation you use ? Role you set ? How your players lost the ball ? Where they lost the ball own half / midfield / final third ?
  10. I just see so many players try to run the ball and almost every player except the back try to create something What is the plan in your mind ? Why you need that many players run / create ?
  11. I haven't play fm19 yet , but first of all I will remove all the TIs . There are lots of options you can do . You have BWM on the middle of the 3 men midfielder . There will be a big gap between him and the middle center defender . I will turn them to CMd and CDd or CDs . If you want to control and create the attack on left flank . I will set the left striker as DLF/DF and left WB support then release your right flank . Or turn left striker as DLF/DF , left WBs , DLP to MEZ and BWM to DLP . I will also turn the BBM to carrilero as well to release your right WBa , but all depends on the transition in match .
  12. Turned my dm to DLP will help a lot . It's my first time to use 3 center backs counter formation . Needs more time to see how is the transaction do and what is the best role .
