  1. Thanks to all the replies - it's definitely given me something extra to think about. @Experienced Defender The crazy thing is that 4-2-3-1 with lots of support duties has probably been my most successful tactic but it's not exactly how I want to play the 2 midfielders as the DLP is typically on defend. I'll tweak some of the TI's and see if there is any improvement from there. @sporadicsmiles The aim for the DLP for me is to be slightly more free than what a DLP on defend is. I want him picking the ball up from the defenders or the holding midfielder and starting moves from there and like you say being the heartbeat of the team. @summatsupeer You might be right - the DLP-Su may not be the right role but I'd like to try at least making it work one way to see how he performs at his best.
  2. Has anyone had any luck with a DLP-Su? I love the idea of the role and think someone like De Jong has great attributes for it however I can never incorporate it into a formation without it creating problems. In a 4-2-3-1 I have tried pairing him with a runner (BBM/Mez) but it creates defensive issues as there isn't really a sitter. If I try pairing him with a CM-D the midfield doesn't seem to create enough attacking options and both sit fairly close to each other. When I try him with a holding midfielder it feels like my midfield is too defensive, even with say a Mez-A, one side just seems to be lacking the attacking spark. I know the role can work well, I'm just struggling with ways to find out how. Tactic 1 - Tactic 2 - Tactic 3 (few variations of this one but mainly tried) - Again I've tried different tactics but just can't seem to get it to work too much.

  4. You're missing the point. You want the players to play to your instructions. Why do I want my holding midfielder shooting from distance where it's quite clear that nothing will come of it? My post was more about balance than being aggressive for 90 minutes, but anyway...
  5. 263m is nothing if you compare Chelsea spent 165m on Rashford in my save!
  6. I think this sums it up pretty well. Too many times people either blame the ME as a whole or the tactic when it is most likely a mix of the two. I've seen a good amount of times where a player doesn't have 'Shoots from distance' PPM, has plenty of viable options, on a lower tempo and still balloons multiple shots from distance, which I believe, is where the ME can improve. However, I've also created tactics in where there is limited options for the player so all they can do is shoot from distance, that is down to the tactic and can be addressed by reading through the forums and experimenting yourself to try make bring these situations down to a minimum. The screenshot of you having 30 shots with 5 on target won't be solely down to the ME, you will need players attempting to make runs in behind or players around him giving him options to pass to. My favourite tactic currently is having a Mez-A and W-A on the same side of the pitch providing an overload and penetration but having the striker drop off and an IWB to provide the passing options too. I think this is a valid point too. Often you have WBiB and Shoot less often yet the player simply doesn't listen to you. In real life this just wouldn't be acceptable and would be talked about before the next game.
  7. Crazy thing was there wasn't too many long shots. My game froze and crashed after loading the analysis report for whatever reason so unfortunately no proof ha. There was a lot from corners which defenders fire over from simple ranges which aren't classed as 'clear cut' chances. Remainder were mainly from the inside or on the edges of the box. The post wasn't really to criticise the game but to just show something I hadn't seen before, i.e. 54 shots, 1-0 up and them equalising in the 93rd minute, for us to get a winner in the 96th and to see any other posts of something similar, but it hasn't turned out that way
  8. Thought I'd share this screenshot! Out of interest, has anyone else had anything similar?
  9. Has anyone tried Merino for BBM? Stats look well rounded...
  10. I know it doesn't suit your formation but I've got the best out of Pogba playing him in the CAM role. In my second season he scored 13 goals with a few assists in half a season before demanding to be sold to PSG! Sums him up really...
  11. Very good read, I use a similar tactic with a few roles tweaked to suit my team. How are you finding the CF-Su role? I felt like the game almost passed him by when I used him. When I changed it up to a CF-A it felt like my identity changed. Players were looking for the longer ball as the CF tried to push higher. Currently trying the DLF-A which doesn't change the identity at least but still doesn't have much impact. Fortunately my left winger and Mez are banging in goals for fun!
  12. - Heads the ball out of play when in loads of space
  13. How come I get one less player?! @Jambo98 am I using the 4321 Narrow or 4231 Narrow?
