  1. After looking at all the possible combinations I think I'm going to go for an Anchorman with a B2B and a Carrilero and just change roles for different situations. What are the thoughts on team instructions for the klopp way of playing? I see most klopp tactics having everything high line, urgent pressing full throttle type but this seems slight overkill and quite suicidal. What would be as close to real life but would preferably work in-game.
  2. I'm not playing as a top club so a B2B, BWM and a half back would be your go to choice then? I've got an F9, an IF for the Salah role and I've went for an IW for mane at the moment to see how it plays but with my wing back bombing forward he basically just cuts in most the time. Do you think having a flat 3 works better with a high line and high press than it does when theres a DM involved? I'm not really looking at getting the system bang on really because I know that's pretty hard to implement in game for most systems like you say. I'm just looking at how roles can be translated into game and then I'll pick certain characteristics like pressing etc.
  3. What's everyone's interpretation of the midfield 3 for liverpool? Would it be a flat 3 or a 2 with a DM possibly? I have an Anchorman with a Carrilero and a B2B but it seems to be quite passive. I know their midfield is more industrious than creative in real life though. What roles would work well together on an FM basis that is still quite close to being how they play in real life
  4. Let's say that I have the right players and I'd like to use a 442 or 4411 what TIs, PIs or player roles would you suggest I used to get your 'progressive possession football' style across. Will do thanks, I was actually looking for this thread but couldn't remember the author or name.
  5. I'm looking to implement a possession based approach but I'm not wanting just short passing and patient play. Is there any way to play possession but have it more direct and quicker approach. I'm not bothered about how it would affect other parts of my tactic with instructions, player roles etc.
  6. @Ö-zil to the Arsenal! I've used this tactic to great effect on previous FMs across many different clubs and leagues but due to the new tactics interface I'm not sure what instructions to use that would keep it in line with your initial principles. Could you shed some light on what instructions and possibly which roles you would use if you were to set it up on this year's game. Thanks in advance 😁
  7. Orginally posted in the tactics and training form but I think this is a better for this. I was wondering about a few things in regards to the DOF. Does he sign players according to his tendencies? Does he sign players and staff according to his tactical side ie pressing style etc. If he has for talking sake say 20 and 20 for Jpa and Jpp will he sign really good players or is it still the same players if he had 10 and 10 Any ideas of responses would be welcome
  8. Unsure as to whether this is the correct bit for this but was wondering about a few things in regards to the DOF. Does he sign players according to his tendencies? Does he sign staff according to his tactical side ie pressing style etc. If he has for talking sake say 20 and 20 for Jpa and Jpp will he sign really good players or is it still the same players if he had 10 and 10
  9. Thanks for your views and ideas towards what I'm trying to do. I'll implement these into my save, see how I get on with it all and I'll report back at the end of the season if all goes well
  10. I was looking through this thread last night and noticed you mentioned a split block, how would I translate that into the game? Would it be through using tighter marking on certain positions and potentially using opposition instructions?
  11. I wasn't sure because we're usually told that a WB behind a W isn't suitable and should be put behind a role that cuts inside to let overlaps happen and usually a FB is partened with a W... or so we are told. If using a HB would you tell the CBs to stay wider or does that naturally happen in-game? I will have a look later when I'm on but was just curious for your take on it
  12. The information you have given me on tactics, roles and instructions are more than enough so I wouldn't worry about further analysing my team. From other comments and posts you provide on the forum I've got no issues with taking your word on it. Both tactics you have provided give me canvas I can work on for what players I need for positions and roles. On the 4123 tactic is the FB to be behind the IF and WB behind the W or was that to be swapped around? Thanks for taking time out to answer my (probably obvious) questions and issues.
  13. That is exactly what I mean, (mines wasn't as poetic as yours 😂). I think I have the players capable of trapping and passing the ball in a quick fashion whilst keeping that high intensity and also to be able to win the ball well. I'm aiming to have 3 or 4 players in advanced positions who you would class as ' total footballers ' so I want them to be able to use their magic if and when they choose. If using either the 4123 or 4231 what roles and instructions would you choose to use whilst trying to keep to my general idea of how I want to play?
  14. Forgot to mention at the start that I was Ac milan. I did think the pressing and counter pressing would leave me open but I thought taking them off would make me less proactive and standoffish. I'm not 100% sure how I want to play, I like the idea of winning the ball quickly and using quick short passes to overwhelm the opposition. My thoughts on using the DLP were to move the ball from defence to midfield better and maybe ping a long pass when the striker or winger are bombing forward. Be more expressive was added because I seem to struggle to break teams down and with having players like Paqueta, Bonaventura, Pavon, Castillejo and Çalhanoglu maybe they would give me that little extra. If my current tactic with your adjustments was used as my balanced starter tactic what role and instruction changes would you do to make a tactic to use against weaker teams who just camp in their own box. I have also bought Cristian Pavon (Boca), Lucas Silva (Real Madrid) and Johannes Geis (Ex Schalke). Sold Biglia and Suso. Incase that helps with anything
  15. Playing ok with this current tactic and was just curious if anyone would do anything different to either the roles or instructions. Sk d Fb s Cd d Cd d Wb a W a b2b dlp d Iw a Am a Cf s Im playing a Balanced mentality with the following instructions Pass into space, play out of defense, be more expressive Roll it out, distribute quickly, counter, counter-press Higher def line, more urgent, stay on feet, tighter marking, use offside trap DLP has close down less to keep some shape in the middle I get better results against bigger teams and struggle to open up and break down smaller teams who sit back, what changes would you make to either draw out the opposition or camp in their half and probe for openings
