I was wondering what is the best midfield role for a 433? I am playing Roaming Mid - Deep Lying (D) - Roaming Mid in a 3 midfield system. Instructions are central passing + work into box @ control mentality # Forwards are 2 IF & 1 CF - all support
Hi managers Lately i have been trying out something new, and to a sort of mixed success. I played Bari up to Serie A using this tactic 50 % of the time, but there are some aspects i'm struggling with. The idea is to use a Regista to run the middle of the park completely ( Dahoud is not my main man for this job, but international duty and Tonali still being very young forced this for now ) Next to him i want to run a halfback, that will sneak in between the central defenders and that way widen up the back, allowing my wingbacks to play very aggressively and further up the pitch. Defensively i have found this work incredible, and my issues are mainly going forward. I've asked my inside forwards to sit narrower and let wingbacks fill in on the outside. My main concerns are what role to play my CM as and what type of football to play. CM Attacking doesn't feel optimal, but i can't play a mezzala without causing assymetry. I suppose i could put the Mezzala in front of the half back maybe? Also. What kind of playstyle would benefit my Regista? A possession based slow football, or vertical tiki taka for quick flaired space-balls? My main issue with the slow pace i am trying now with Dortmund is that my wingers are rapid, absolutely rapid. And i feel like the low pace could hold them back from doing what they do best? Any input would be appreciated, i really want to make this regista/half back combination work but going forward i feel like something is missing, the movement in midfield is a bit clumsy and might prohibit my regista a little bit. Last of all, are there any individual trais i could benefit from running this tactic for a long time? Mainly for my 3 midfielders. Cheers for reading, lets theorycraft!
Playing on 17.3 with updated stats. I disabled the first transfer window for realism and have reached the January window. Have been winning a lot of games at home but away form is struggling. Carroll, Nordtveit and Kouyate will be sold (none of them have really performed well and they have had injuries). On the 2nd of Jan I managed to get in Dominic Iorfa from Wolves to strengthen right-back position. I need: 1 or 2 more decent defenders (I am waiting to hear back from Coentrao, but PSG and City look favourites to sign him). Preferably another fast centreback and left back. 1 good goalkeeper (tried scouting a few english GK's but they are extremely expensive). Any backup midfields also (with defence minded attributes). I have 31M left with limited wages, but this should increase once I offload the unused players.
Hi all! I've noticed that some opposition (especially top teams) start off with a 4-2-3-1 wide or a 4-1-2-3 wide etc. And when I check the average positions of the team after the game, they are somehow able to create a five man flood of the midfield in relation to the formation. I've attached an image of Barcelona doing it - they played a 4-1-2-3 wide for the full match. I have tested Arsenal, Chelsea and Barcelona so far and they all do it in my save. I've tried to replicate it by using inside forwards, asking them to play narrower, asking the team to play narrower etc., but I haven't come close to this in play on my average positions analysis! Any ideas?
