I need help building a 4-2-3-1 for my New England Revolution side. I have settled on how I want to play but implementing it doesn't seem to be working on the pitch.
My current philosophy, if you will, is that I want to play with a "Positive" mentality + Shorter passing, Work ball into the Box, More urgent Pressing and for the players to be more Expressive. I also want my GK to either play the ball to centrebacks or fullbacks depending if the opposition team is playing with 1 or more strikers.
I've read a few guides on this forum and have settled on the current set up for player roles :
SK (S) - Playing positive mentality probably sees my team playing quite far up so he is set as SK to deal with any balls over the top.
WBR (A) - Set to attack as my AMR is on support so he is the overlapper.
CD's - Both central defenders are set as bog standard defenders. Didn't want anything too fussy and if I do have a composed ball player then I could just use PPM's to dictate what he does.
WBL (S) - More conservative then the WBR as ahead he has a IF on attack and in midfield a DLP on support.
DLP (S) - On the right MC spot I've got a DLP on support. The thinking here is he mixes both defensive and offensive duties and is a good outlet for defenders and support for attackers if the break isn't on.
CM (D) - I've got the other MC as just a standard midfielder on defend however I feel maybe I'm missing a trick here not having him on support? My initial thought was just having a combative player in there that could recycle.
W (S) - Only reason really for the winger on the right was to create spaces in the middle for the other three attackers.
AMC (S) - Didn't want him to be a playmaker so all attacks go through him but more of an all-rounder in attacking midfield. AMC (S) seemed to be the best role for him.
IF (A) - I have a really good IF on the left so wanted him to be involved as much as possible in attack. Has a WB supporting him from behind and can be fed by the AMC as well.
DLF (A) - I like this role. Is involved in the build-up play but also get's in the box. I like the variation.
Question for the community is can you see anything glaringly wrong? I haven't set any PI's as of yet as I'm still learning but I could use some help on TI's based on the roles given.
