  1. Thanks @Experienced Defender i had kante and alonso suspended from one game. But from what i've noticed, with any player that i''m playing i seem to be conceding a lot recently from crosses down the flank after my FB's getting skinned, and there seems to be a lack of both possession and penetration in my games.
  2. Thank you @Experienced Defender. Really appreciate all your advice. The flank i was talking about earlier was the right wing flank. I was thinking about having both a winger on attack duty and a Wing back on defend duty. I have been including the suggestions you made but i still seem to have bad results unfortunately. I have been playing this tactic: Removed the BME and counter press against stronger opposition but had not helped. Winger, Mezzala and striker have close more often PI. DM has tight marking PI. My last three results were all losses: What i have noticed is: When attacking: -I still struggle to play possessional football with any penetration. Some games against OK teams at home i still struggle to keep the ball. Too many times the ball goes out wide and then the cross is blocked for a corner. This happens constantly and unsure why this is happening. I struggle to see how i am going to unlock defences with a lack of creativity in my play. - Lack of clear cut chances especially when i am behind and need to score. What i do is initially i push the D line up and the LOE. If the defense are too compact, then i try and draw them out by lowering the LOE and D line, to bring them in, check pass into space and play a bit more direct and quicker. That hasn't been working either. When Defending: - Really struggle with set pieces. Conceding corners every game at the moment. Is this more to do with defending mentals? I've noticed that my defenders do make individual mistakes so perhaps that's where my team is just not up to scratch? I am usually punished by these goals. - Defenders struggle to block and defend crosses. This is my second source of goals conceded. The RB (azpi/james) and LB (alonso/emerson) always, always get skinned by the opposition wingerand they cross from the byline usually resulting in a goal. Is this a lack of support from my wingers or do i need to consider tight marking? I'm not sure how i can contain these crosses.

  3. Thank you very much @Experienced Defender really appreciate the input! Regarding the first formation, why was the right CM role switched from Mezzala to CM attack? And i've noticed that azpilicueta struggles a bit as a IWB, perhaps a full back/wingback on defend duty could work? Although i see an issue with width as my both my winger and full back would both be wide so would i need to consider the winger role to accommodate a more wider full back?
  4. Thank you @Experienced Defender. I will try this out first and let you know how it goes. Can i ask what issues you see with setting up the tactic as you detailed above and how you would set up the tactic if you were the chelsea manager? And how you would go about adjusting the tactic in game against more compact defences and also against more difficult away teams?
  5. Thanks for the response guys, really appreciate it! @Experienced Defender I would love to see an example how you would tweak the tactic. I'm not opposed to playing sancho as a winger either, just prefer him to be more centrally involved in the play! How would you go about altering tactics mid game to break teams down? Christiansen does get game time, i think tomori is my best defender but will involve christiansen more. Actually have been conceding on both sides but more recently from Emerson's left side. Thank you @DimitrisLar, the only issue i see with playing a much higher D-line and higher LOE is that i congest space too much, and then poor decisions are made, and i become susceptible to the counter attack.
  6. Thanks for the input guys, really appreciate it. @Experienced Defender 1) The reason i play sancho as an IF is that i would like to see him cutting in and contributing to goals, which is not happening at the moment. My thinking was that putting him as a winger would keep him very wide and not narrower in a more possession style. I would like to see him closer to the goal with the intentionof him chipping in 10-15 goals a season hopefully. 2) Rudiger out for 9 months so the idea was to have strong pacy defenders at the back that have decent First touch and speed to stop counter attacks 3) and that's from the opposition goals @DimitrisLar can try it but i'm not sure Tammy is suited to playing a f9, as you said more a runner. My goal ideally is i would like to see a bit more penetration and chances created from this team. Progressive possession football. We struggle to create anything meaningful especially against teams who defend and give less space. I'm not sure on how to break teams down.
  7. Hi there, I am currently managing Chelsea and really struggling with my tactic currently. I have been following quite a few threads and trying to work on a progressive attacking style football that i have seen mentioned in a few threads here. I could definitely use @Experienced Defender defender's help as i've been following a lot of your posts! My form has been horrendous recently and i am not creating any chances at all. I'm trying to get my forward, MEZ and inside forward to chip in with the bulk of the goals but struggling to create any chances. Whatsmore, at home, against aston villa after following some threads i lost to aston villa at home and had 34% possession. I usually struggle against low block tactics anyways. Strat: DM PI : tight marking DLP Winger MEZ and Winger all have close down more PI's. Things i notice: pointless crosses that are blocked by opposing defenders. RB especially missing interceptions and goals coming from runners from the LHS. There is no penetration in our attack. It seems all we do is just get it out wide and attempt crosses, which is not what i want. I would like to see the IF coming in to attack space. My goal is to see possession but with more penetration. would appreciate any input especially @Experienced Defender who's ideas i've modelled on! Thank you!
  8. Hi @Totalfootballfan what tactic and lineup would you recommend for Chelsea? I don't quite have the players to play wing back positions so would it affect the tactics if i pushed them back from WB to Full back support role?
