  1. I seem to find success by changing attacking width depending on opposition. If my wide players find themselves so narrow they never have time to cross or pass before getting closed down i go more wide. If i'm so wide my central players stop finding each other with forward passes i go more narrow. Going wider seems to allow my wide players to go around the low block and cross from byline instead of attempting a deeper cross (getting blocked by the first defender).
  2. Likes to beat the offside trap has to be one of my favourite PPM:s. If you play quite direct with single striker you can play him as TM or DLF and he'll lead the line like an AF would. It's great because he'll spearhead very well and spends less time in the channels.
  3. Hold position for AMC in a 4-2-3-1 seems to be something worth testing out. It stops them from dropping so deep in the defensive phase they're all but useless on the counter but they still press the opposing DM/holding midfielders. Roam from position seems to be the general wisdom for AMC, but the opposite has been a revelation for me, atleast with a slow AMC (Rogic, looking at you).
  4. Does using pass into space increase the likelihood of a short through ball getting played between the opposing center backs? I've got a 4-4-1-1 going with a fluidish attack i like very much, the attacking transition is really nice all the way to the final third. My playmaker in cm seems to often dribble with the ball in front of the opponents backline and my striker and AMC seems to do exactly the correct runs to the spaces between opposing defenders, but the AP very often just takes a long shot from the edge of the box instead of playing the easy through ball between the defenders.
  5. Everyone should give norwegian league a try. Plenty of good teams (rosenborg being the sole king, but there are many other really good teams). Smaller league but has 4-5 european spots. Now this is the thing: the league requires 16(!) players homegrown in norway but only 2 homegrown in the club. It is really nice for player development. Norwegian talent is plentyful and cheap too.
