I understand that, but I want to keep positive mentality because that's how I envision to play this style of counter attacking, I want my players to take risks. The formation is already a deep one and I also feel that with a balanced mentality we'd just give too much (even more) to the other team. Yes, it's a counter attacking style but I don't want to be too deep, that's why I also have a higher line, more of a mid-low block.
What about the IW(a) isn't he also an outlet?
I have a WM(s) with stay wider PI, so he acts kinda like a winger. I didn't choose a winger because he has dribble more and I already have too many players with that trait and that is also one of the reasons for some turnovers we have. So I try to keep as few dribbling roles as possible.
But don't you think a WP would be in Volante's way?
What do you think about these changes? I change the Volante duty to support (so he can also see more of the ball now) and fullback is now a WB(s) with sit narrower PI. The other fullback is now on attack and I would even make in a IWB, but he's not that good for that.
Also what would you change (and using the same formation) if you were camping against a weaker team? I know too many questions, sorry. Thanks for your time
The reason I want to use focus play on the left it's not only to get the best out of Camaving but also because I don't want the IW(a) to touch many times on the ball and he's not a great passer too. Most of the players on the left have switch ball to the other flank trait.
About the left back, you mean a IWB? Because the IWB just acts like a normal FB/WB when there's two DM's in front.
I don't think that counter-press and pressing urgency would suit this style in a bottom heavy formation.
