I'm having trouble to let my teams play the way I want. I found it especially difficult to get mentality, shape and team-instructions right. So I'm calling the community for help to get me on my way! So let's start with what I want to achieve: - attractive attacking football with a solid defense - no hoof balls from the back to the front - fast ball circulation (one touch if possible) - keeping possession (but not for possession's sake) - positive (forward) passes if possible - goals from crosses & through passes with my lone forward as main goalscorer - not too many long shots - agressive pressing, winning the ball back quickly What mentality, shape and team-instructions suit this style best? What instructions compliment my style of play? I think the following 3-4-3 formation goes well with what I'm aiming for: Goalkeeper: Not sure if I need a sweeper keeper or a regular goalkeeper, what's the difference really? Depends on how high the D-line will be I guess? Central defenders: I want my central defender to bring the ball from the back to the midfield (that PPM should work wonders I guess?) But I'm uncertain if has to be a stopper or cover? Wingbacks: I want them to deliver lots of crosses in the penalty box and act as a wide outlet in possession, being a passing option during the entire attacking phase. But also being solid in defense, marking wingers, eliminating crosses, ... Central midfield: I'm assuming I need two conservative roles to balance out the tactic, with one being the playmaker who links everything together (hopefully) and can deliver some assists (probably more pre-assists) with great through passes and distributing the game and the other player should be a workhorse who recovers ball possession quickly and plays simple passes in function of the team Inside forwards: They should roam freely and be a goalscoring threat as well as deliver lots of assists Lone forward: He should be my main goalscorer I hope I made it clear what I'm after and hope that someone could put me on my way! Did I choose the right roles? And what mentality, shape, TI's and PI's should I aim for?
