  1. Morning chaps. Was wondering if some can help on a tricky situation I have on my Bodo Glimt save. I have two absolutely outstanding full backs. One has two years on his contract. Hes been tapped up by Man City though. I turned down and offer and has the hump with me and won't sign a new contract. Do I need to sit tight and wait for him to calm down. Or do I bite the bullet and get rid. I'm loathe to do the latter as he's exceptional. The 2nd one is trickier still. He dislikes the club. I've never loaned him out. He plays most games. I don't understand his problem. He has 3 years on
  2. I don't know about anyone else but I see this and injury proneness? You ll never play for my club
  3. I think I see what your driving at and its not really about us actively seeking to win the ball back quickly. To truly counter attack we need to keep our shape and be disciplined so when the ball is retained we are in a good position to break with men in the right areas to hurt the oppo. Us pressing can cause us to lose our shape. Which leaves us vulnerable. And with that loss of shape is a lack of direction and coordination when we do get the ball back.
  4. Thanks ED. I think I'm getting there slowly but surely! With the LOE question, it would be for the slightly counter attacking style, with a standard LOE (I dont think it would be effective with a low LOE).
  5. Please fire away ED. One other thing. Are you OK playing a split press with a LOE? As I say I'm looking to play a counter attacking ish style of play. Would a CAR maybe be one more of the suitable roles in the cm department? Like I say feel free to pull it to bits if needed. I want to understand the full ins and outs of the game. Its not enough for me to know. I want to understand. Should the LB be FBa? Im all ears matey 👍
  6. Morning All. Hope you are keeping safe and well. I am slowly but surely getting to grips (I think!) with the intricacies of balance and structure of this game. Thanks to all of your help on here chaps by the way, especially Experienced Defender. Really been of huge benefit. I was wondering about three things as I am now starting to try and build my own tactics. Or trying too! Can I have a team with no playmakers (this would entail a high tempo quick brand of football I figure – and this appeals to me) and can I have a team with a lot of playmakers (or creative output nonetheless

  8. Superb. Thanks as always ED. Much appreciated.
  9. Hi Experienced Defender. Thanks for your reply as always. Can I ask how you might set up an overload for this sort of system? I think I see where you may be coming from though. It will be the left that is released. To optimise this would you put the left WB on support and right FB as an Iwb? Any roles you might change to increase the impact here? Thanks.
  10. Sorry I meant overloads. I shouldn't post so late lol. Thanks.
  11. Apologies I meant to edit that. It is the fb not an iwb. I have tested it and it goes well against sides I'm expected to beat. I'm a little shy about playing it against top sides though. I think it might work though. But I want it optimised before I give it a go.
  12. I see a lot of people looking for advice on 4231 433 and 41231s as well as 442s. But I want to play a 424. I was looking for confirmation / assurance that the shape and player roles in my 424 were sound. I have a top top side. So my 424 looks a little like this Sk A Wbd CD CD. FBs DLPs. BBM IFs. Wa DLFs.
