  1. It depends on how your see its tactic. But for me, it works. To be honest, the biggest issue of recreating Lage’s tactic is the pressing.
  2. The best role, for me, for J.Felix is DLF-S with the "roam from position" PI. Lot of goals, he comes deep to collect the ball but not as an AP in the AMC strata. He stays next to Seferovic and let central middlefielders do the job.
  3. Very cool results! Do you have any PI’s ? I’m trying to recreate the tactic with Napoli but I don’t think I have the right players to do it for now.
  4. Not bad but IMO you can tweaks a few things in regard to 1) stick more to the Atletico’s way of playing 2) improve your tactic and help your team to play better. 1) remove both focus on sides TI - those are usefull if you want to focus on one side especially but your team will play on both sides naturally without. 2) IMO central middlefielders should be DLP(d) on the left and CM(s) on the right. The DLP will help to hold the ball deep and to play long passes forward. The CM(s) will have pretty much the same moves as a B2B but he will roam way less so it will help you to keep a strong central partnership which is vital in a 442. 3) On the left side, it should be WP, attack or support, you can test. Saul or Koke are playmakers. 4) Like I said, Griezmann should be in the AM strata as a Shadow Striker with Costa as a PF(s). You can’t have two attack duties up front, your strikers will be isolated and your team won’t explore spaces and won’t create movement. A Shadow Striker as good as Griezmann in a counter-style team is lethal. 5) your wing back should be turn as full back IMO. It will help you to keep a strong bank of four. Left side with attack duty and support for the right side.
  5. Pretty ok with all your advices but Griezmann can’t be a treq. He is the one iniating the pressing so I’d put him in the AM strata as Shadow Striker or even AP(A) (it’s more his role when he plays with the French National Team). With his PPM’s and attributes it should work.
  6. Hi everybody, Is there anybody trying to replicate this tactic in FM2019 ? Definitely my favourite of all time. Congrats @Ö-zil to the Arsenal! !
  7. Yeah I hear what you say. My last game away against a weaker team (Frosinone If I’m correct) was kind of full of signs of what you’re saying. 60% possession, almost 30 shots but « only » won 1-3 with two goals in the last 10 minutes, thanks to a penalty and Insigne coming out of the bench. So yeah, I have good players but the way the team is playing could be better. I’ll try to tweaks a few things and let you know how it works. Thank you mate
  8. Hi everyone and thanks for all your answers. I read everything and I tried to come up with picking few things from everybody and here's my tactic now. GK = SW(d) FBR = FBR(d) - Sit narrower - mark tighter CBR = BPD(d) - mark tighter CBL = CD (d) - ease off tackles - mark tighter FBL = WB (s) - stay wider - take fewer risks W (s) - mark tighter - close down more - take fewer risks CMR (s) - pass it shorter - take fewer risks - dribble more - close down more - mark tighter CML (s) - take more risks - dribble more - get further forward - move into channels - mark tighter IW( s) - take more risks - get further forward - sit narrower - close down more PF (a) - pass it shorter F9 (s) - pass it shorter - roam from position - move into channels - close down more Let's see how the next games are going to go!
  9. Hi everyone and thanks for your answers. I tweaked a few things after watching some videos of Napoli this year : Raul Albiol is now BPD(D) Zielinski is now CM(S) (after trying cm(a), but not involved enough IMO) with PI - go further more - move into channels - dribble more - take more risks) Allan is now CM(S) with PI - close down more - Mark tighter - dribble more - take less risks Callejon is now W(S) - he was doing way too much runs to finally lose the ball next to the box. He is playing more with his teamates now Mertens/Milik are now PF(A) I can’t put screens for now because I’m at work but the first two games played after those tweaks were won 5-0 with nearly 60% possession. So I’m pretty happy! But I still can’t reproduce Insigne’s moves. I think I’m gonna try him as CF(S) with some PIs. I thought that even is Trequartista if on Attack duty, he would be the link between middle and attack. Same for Allan who is not the awesome complete middlefielder he is IRL yet. Still working on it but the team starts to play the way I want.
  10. Hi everyone, Starting a new save and I'm suprised by the fact that it seems like there's no subject about emulating Ancelloti's Napoli this year. IMO, Napoli is a better team under Ancelloti then Sarri and their football is way more mastered this year, even if it's still not enough to really worried Juventus for the title. Anyway, I'm trying to emulate his very flexible 442 but I must admit that if defense and middle seems to be ok, I have some issues with the attack. My two strikers aren't involved enough IMO. I won the first 3 games in championship and I'm leader of the league but I'm not really happy with the team is playing. Here is my tactic : My main problem is that most of my shots are from my middlefielders or Simone Verdi outside the box. So a lot of shots but only a few are really dangerous. If you guys have some ideas to improve my tactic, you're welcome!
  11. Hi guys, I just finished my 2nd season and things went beautiful ! Let's look at some screens just to show you how I'm happy with what the team accomplished. Just to let you know, at the end of my first season we finished 3rd but I wasn't happy with how the team finished the season. Way too much goals conceeded, and a lack of mentality and motivation. So I choosed to be very agressive during the summer transfer window. I needed a very good CB, complete and agressive so the best choice was Lucas Hernandez. I had him for 64€ which is a lot but, I really wanted a top player. Then, I needed to double some role like CM, AM, ST and left FB after Guerreiro asked me to go to Paris. I chose Jorge from Monaco and was hoping for him to be my main FB but he is a bit tender for now. I had Alberto Moreno during the first season and he made a beautiful season. I wasn't happy with Mario Gotze and even if in my dream I would him and Reus to stay as long as possible in the club, his salary was way too high for his performances. So I sold him and he did appear that he didn't make a good season in Leicester neither. Witsel asked me to go to City so I sold him but with Weigl, Delaney, Ndombele and Mandragora, I was ready for my CM. The first run of the season was good regarding the results but I wasn't happy with the way my team was playing. We were good against small teams and bad against big teams and away games. Just to let you know, I was playing that way (thanks to Ozil with his Milan's thread). I had to make things changed because my team was starting to depressed, with 3 0-0 in a row. Also, I was in a bad place in my Champion's League group so I had to make things happen. I wanted to involve more Ndombele in the game like the way he's playing with Lyon. I looked at this video to help me : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zg2ld19symo&t=203s . Also, I wanted to Reus act more like he does IRL this season and make Sancho a real goal threat. So here it goes : Defense is the same but I add "take less risk" to all of my defenders just to make sure they're playing simple pass. Ndombele is a DLP(s) with just the PI "dribble more". He is now a beast, it's beautiful to watch him play. Sancho is awesome too, lots of goals and assists. And finally, Reus became the leader of my team. Lots of goals and assists too and many goals to save some games (like set pieces at the last minute to win a game). After I made those tweaks, things went so good, to start with an incredible game against Tottenham in CL. Like you see, we lost against City in CL's final but they were too good for me, no shame. So here is my season's bilan : I finished champion with more than 20 points beyond the 2nd. Half of my team in the Team of the Year, Sancho player of the year, Reus second. Best attack, best defense... I'm so amazed by those results, can't believe it ! Well, I'm a bit pissed about something though... TRAINER OF THE YEAR WITH ONLY 47% OF GAMES ****ING WINNED !? Hm hm... sorry about that... Sorry for the long post guys, thanks a lot everyone for all of your advices, do not hesitate to ask questions about my team!
  12. Hi everyone, Starting my 2nd season with Dortmund. On my first one, I have a beautiful first part of the season which helped me to reach Champions league because my 2nd part was awful (even if I lost in semi finals in CL against the Bayern). Alcacer who scored 24 goals in 46 games but scored his last goal in february. The same for Sancho. The reason for that is that I changed a bit my tactic. I applied the Ozil’s tactic Sacchi recreation which is beautiful to watch, but not solid enough for me. I want to change some things in my tactic to reach out some goals : - around 53/55% possession for each games - conceding less goals - my strikers (Alcacer or Piatek), Sancho and Reus (as AMC) must be my main goals threats - having a tactic that can work away and against big teams. Because with the Sacchi one, I’m beating most of the low/middle teams 4-0 home, and losing away against the same team. - Last thing I want, 4411 is my favorite team shape. 2 solid banks of 4 in defense and a 4231 or a 424 in attack. Any advices to reach out those goals? The idea is to have Sancho on the left as an IW (but don’t know support or attack), Pulisic on the right as a winger, Alcacer is a beast as an AF but don’t know what to do with Reus behind him. Thank you guys !
  13. Dude you’ll never find the same exact and that’s what makes the game exciting IMO. How much did you sold him? How much do you have to replace him?
