  1. Changed my setup to a 3 man defensive midfield triangle: dmd- cma-aps. Working very good. So thank you. However Im having thougths about changing aps to rpl s, how does this sound? What is the difference between aps and rpl s?
  2. I got Naingolan as am, so I want him to defend but also contribute to the attack. Maybe put the striker on a attacking role? but wont my striker be too isolated if I put him to adv a or cf a?
  3. Im playing with Roma, in the second season I decided to go with a 4231 formation. Find it quite difficult to get it working. Formation: counter and structured df s w s- am s- w a ap s- cm d fb s- cd d-cd d-wb s TI: play out of defense, prevent short gk d PI: fb and wb: tackle harder, rwb cd: mark tighter ap s: none cm d: shorter passing w a: close down more, direct passes, tackle harder w s:close down more, tackle harder am s: none df s: move into channels, hold up ball Problems: Have some questionmarks about my two midfielders infront of my defence, need a stable defensive but also some offensive output, how to get that working? My wingers often cut inside (ppm) how to work around that as I want them to get some crosses in? Not much happening from my am s, how to get him involved more? Previously had some great succes with a df s, but now it is really a struggle, any ideas? I want a side that play solid in defense but with some counterattacking offensive
  4. Ok, but I have to very competent wingbacks in Mario Rui and A Florenzi so that should not be the problem. The problem is how to setup my tactic, maybe set my cbs to close down less to make them hold position and not venture after the ball?
  5. Been playing a few matches now and it works nice. The problem is that Im very vulnerable to crosses from deep, my wbs are set to close down more so thinking about to increase it to much more. Any other ideas how to stop this? My three cbs are now: cb stopper - cb cover- bplcb stopper, been thinking about how to set the closing down for these, any ideas? Also my cb stopper and bpld stopper is mark tight but my cb cover isnt marking tight Also changed my dpl to support, works in some matches but in other matches the opponent exploits the hole between cms and cb.
  6. The point of my topic was to create an own tactic, not to setup a tactic from the spurs tactic in the other thread. I was looking for opinions on my tactic and reading that thread dont help so much.
  7. Yes I read that thread, what is the thought behind moving the two central midfielders up to the central strata? What if I play them deeper(in line with the wbs)? will they not be able to contribute in the offensive?
  8. I play with Roma and want to create Spallettis 3-4-2-1. I play standard with fluid mentality, the only TI are play out of defence and roam from positions. The PIs are: cbs mark tighter, wbs: close down more and tackle harder, dpl: mark tighter, cm: none, apl: move into channels and close down more, am: move into channels and close down more, cf: none. My main concern is how to setting up my cbs when playing a 3 man defence, stopper cover etc? and how to get my midfield to work, do you need a defence duty in midfield when playing 3 at the back also some concerns about closing down. Also some concerns about the width of my team as my wbs are the only ones who offer width, I therefore set my am and apl to move into channels to provide some movement upfront. Maybe the biggest concern is how to get my striker to work, he is now cf a but Im open for changing that role but to what? So how to get this team to work and play like Spallettis Roma?

    Bought Gaya and some youngsters, so yes. Could probably sell some players but that will happen in the summer, isnt that to late? So now I will not be playing champ league next season?

    Now my other problem is that Im running the risk to fail FFP for the champions league, Im in april of the first season and on course to win the league. The board has said that they will explore other revenue streams, but if I fail the FFP does that mean I wont be playing champions league in my second season despite winning the league? Help please?

    Has anyone experience of Stefan de Vrij? Thinking about buying him as replacement for John Terry, I know I will get Christiansen back from loan but think I will need another cb
