  1. Traditionally, it's one stratum, two strata/stratums. But a lot of people here insist on 'one strata'. If you want to say that then just say two stratas.
  2. I think you're confusing me with someone else I never said (and never will say) "City are the best set of players or anything like that."
  3. Yes, you're right. In retrospect that was a bit too much perhaps. I still don't think you can't make a very good counter claim based on a couple of games even regardless of the teams in them. And I'm sure you don't either. "shows that attacking football against better opposition can work." If this your rationale, then you can just say that any type of football can work against any type of opposition, because you can find some games from the virtually endless pool of football matches where some style of play works against some type of opposition. Doesn't say anything substantial when it co
  4. I don't think my level of condescension was anywhere near what you showed OP with your point "Liverpool, CL finalists, won City, another great team, a couple of times so your claim is completely disproved". "this is not always true." No one ever said otherwise. Again, do you really think OP was claiming that it ALWAYS happens? Of course not. A few matches is not enough to completely disprove it. Especially given that Liverpool and City must be more close in ability than what OP had in mind.
  5. A singular match disproves his claim? Do you think he's claiming that literally every time a weaker team plays offensive football against a stronger team, they get beat? Do you also think they are literally spanked on the pitch?
  6. Painless but tedious. Given that the swap positions mechanism has gotten smarter, there's really no reason to not run with the idea of multiple roles for one position, which already is multiple tactics that take turns without manager input during the match, and just allow us multiple complete tactics.
  7. Yes, definitely. Especially in slow build-up we can spot teams trying different tactics fairly easily. I mean, a basic example of this is the French 4-4-2 -> 4-3-3 in transition from defence to build-up. The ME does a relatively good job of some of these changes in shape through having hard-coded actions. But what about something like Kanté moving to left-back position to help build from back when Pavard has already gone forward? That's clearly situational and not a major part of the tactic. Then you have Spain with Koke dropping to sort of DCR position when Spain had a slow attack that hap
  8. Can we do this in FM18? That's awesome! Haven't gotten too many hours on this years edition. That makes it more manageable then. I think I should just demonstrate what I was talking about because it was a bit incoherent but it seems you got the gist of it regardless. I want that my strikers to exchange between these four set-ups: 1. FCR Griezmann AFa FCL Giroud DLFs 2. FCR Griezmann DLFs FCL Giroud AFa 3. FCR Giroud AFa FCL Griezmann DLFs 4. FCR Giroud DLFs FCL Griezmann AFa I don't think the
  9. I'd go for a literal 4-4-2 with DLFs and AFa swapping positions. That's the essence of the French tactic which is what I think tactical replications should aim for because of ME and tactical limitations. Can't use a trequartista role with strikers swapping sadly. Giroud the trequartista! A lot of the stuff forwards do regularly in real life are just so frustrating to try to do in FM. Ok, we can have the strikers swap positions in FM, and have for a decade, but why are the roles fixed for the position... ugh. Year after year. We should be able to set rotating "mini tactics" like a fluid striker
  10. I missed (most of) the Belgium game due to travelling, but at least in the final France's defensive formation was clearly a 4-4-2 and that's what the formation in FM is, right? In build-up, Matuidi would move narrower and Mbappé would get forward resulting in a lopsided 4-3-3 shape. If we agree that formation is the fundamental defensive shape, then WMs and Wa are the obvious roles for Matuidi and Mbappé, respectively. As for team instructions, I'd say exploit right flank throughout. There was a stark contrast between the careful left-side wide players (Matuidi-Lucas) and the courageous r
  11. How about the other part? E: I'm gonna retire to bed now, but I gotta ask why does a [EDIT] lovely young man troll like tomtuck keep roaming free.
  12. "I decided that I think" does not constitute as reasoning by any stretch of imagination. Anyways, is that your sole argument in a topic in which you'd posted about 10 messaged even before tonight?
  13. Where is your reasoning though? You've stated your opinion about half a dozen times, "Busquets is a DLP" but you haven't given any reason as to why. I'd like to know what it is exactly that lead you to think that.
  14. I mean, for me there's no problem and we can continue if tomtuck01 can go back and make an argument. I've made mine in the "500 word essay" already.
  15. Are you suggesting no argumentation is better than excessive argumentation?
