  1. Hi everyone, I often read "give (insert random player's name) more freedom and unleash the beast". Ok, but how do we give more freedom to a player? Especially now that we can't change team shape. Is it by not giving him PI's? Changing his role? Changing team mentallity? For exemple, I always found that advanced playmaker (in the MC strata or even AM strata) isn't mobile enough. But, in the same time, roaming playmaker is, most of the same, way too mobile and hold balls too long. Is that too hard to ask my playmakers to be as good as Zidane, for G*d's sake!?

    @jlgray.94 Yeah ? I know there’s like 2 ways of thinking about partnership between SS and the striker. Some says that SS needs the space created by advanced forward and other that a SS always has to play with a striker that comes deep. I will try with Gotze as a False 9, thank you! IRL, Reus do act like a SS but when Alcacer is playing, he really acts as a Poacher IMO.

    @zlatanera Yes in french we're like it's something between a 10 and a 9... It's pretty cool. While a Trequartista is called something like "Support forward". Frustrating haha. Anyway, no I didn't really tried playing him as an AM. Maybe I will ! It will allow my other AMC to play the same position and role without doing any tweaks that could disturb the whole team. It's absurd because my team is doing good if we're only looking at the results. But it's ugly as hell. I feel like it's a bit complicated to play beautiful football in FM18/19 without playing possession of tiki taka football. Back in FM16, I had emulate my Olympique de Marseille carreer with a tactic like Atletico's Simeone and it was beautiful.

    FM19: Borussia 09 e.V. Dortmund

    Hi everybody, I'm a newbie on the forum even if I read it since months now. Oh and I'm french, btw! Anyway, I started a career on FM19 with Dortmund, try to replicate how they're playing under Favre but it's a bit complicated. It feels like they're playing a possession patient building football but with a counter attack mentality how they project themselves very fast when the ball is won again. So, I tried to emulate a tactic with this idea, starting from a custom fluid counter-attack tactic from the game. Here's my starting eleven when nobody's injured : SW(S) - 2WB(S) - 1BPD(D) - 1CB(D) - 1DLP(S) - 1CM(S) - 1IW (A) - 1 W(S) - 1SS(A) - 1AF(A) And I'm doing pretty good actually for the moment : here are the results But the thing is, I don't really like how my team's playing. It's not as fluid as I would it be. But, let the time do his thing right. My main issue is I don't know how to make Reus perform in this position. Playing as a shadow striker feels like the perfect deal but in reality it doesn't work at all. He's loosing a lot of balls, all of his assists are on set pieces and his only goal was a penalty (he already missed one in the early games of the season). I'm a bit deseperate to make him perform in this team. I feel like he could be the player that make things right for the rest of the team and now, thanks to Jadon Sancho and Alex Witsel for being my saviors because other players aren't really good. Any ideas guys?
