  1. Cheers for your advice. I understand that role & duty variety is important in a system but can I find success using two IW on both flanks?
  2. @Experienced Defender Hi. Would you suggest any changes to the recent tactic you suggested if I was playing with a CM(s) or a non-holding role next to the CM(d)? Thanks. "DLFsu AF IWsu CMde DLPsu WMsu FBat CDde CDde WBsu"
  3. @Experienced Defender Thank you for sharing your ideas, I'm going to try out the Kane as DLF(a), secondly the deep runner version and finally the counter attacking one. A quick question though, why have you chosen an IWB(D) on the left? Is it because of the attacking tendencies of the IF(a) and the MEZ(s)?
  4. Thanks for replying. I would be very interested to see how you would up this team.
  5. Against stronger teams my DL is standard and LOE much lower. Against weaker teams my DL is Higher and LOE standard.
  6. Hi, I've been reading this thread with keen interest as I have my own 433 I'm using. Can I ask for some opinions and advice please on how my tactic(s) look? I'm currently managing the England National Team and want to play a short passing, possession style, with Kane dropping deep to create space for my IW(a) and my CM(a). When up against stronger teams I want to keep the shape solid and hit the front 3 quickly so they can use their pace and finishing. Thanks. Against weak/similar teams Against stronger teams
  7. Counter press and a very high block seem to be very similar. If I took counter press off and played very high LOE and very high defensive line would the effect in game be the same?
  8. Hi Smurf What is your option on this laptop? My budget is £500-£800. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/asus-tuf-fx705dy-17-3-amd-ryzen-5-rx-560x-gaming-laptop-1-tb-hdd-128-gb-ssd-10189231-pdt.html
  9. With mentality and passing, would shorter passing on anything below 'balanced' be more likely to pass short in their own half as opposed to mentalities above balanced where they might be more likely to pass short up the field?
  10. I have one Nations League 3-0 against Portugal with a 4321.
  11. Thanks for the advice I've gone with a 4321, 4231 and 4123 to utilise the midfield players more that IRL! Instructions Mentality - Balanced Play out of defence Shorter passing Lower tempo --- Counter press Distribute to FBs+CB's Roll Ball Out Low Crosses --- Higher defensive line Much Lower LOE More urgent pressing Use offside trap
  12. Between 2002-2010 the England National Team played 442 which many think is one reason behind their perceived underachievement on the international stage. What formation would you have used to bring out the best of these players? What players would you have taken to tournaments? How would you set this up in FM? The players - Edit: I have the 2003/04 FM19 DB.
  13. Great post. One thing that bugs me though is Southgate's pressing. He had been banging on and on about pressing and winning the ball high up the pitch. But does that actually happen? When I watch England they usually fall back and press from there. I don't see that much of an intensive, " radical" press. Perhaps we can clear this up, how DO England press as it's not very clear to me tbh.
