So I started a Nottingham Forest save to continue into the main game as the Beta seems not so bug filled. I had originally tried to impliment my way of playing (A quick passing 3313) but after that rather ambitious plan failed, i switched to a more sane 433. Same style of play, one that normally leads to goals at both ends led us on a run of poor preformances and scraped wins. So I looked at the squad report to see if the issue was the players. Short story, it was. They are neither suited or unsuited to my style. So after looking at the report, I saw we had good dribblers and technical players in generall, a lot of CB's, few strikers and good wide players. So I created a 343. Preformances have been mixed. We've not been great, but we've not been poor either. A win, a draw and a loss so far while using it. So what I ask is: where can I improve the system? The idea is to try and defend in a tight mid block, forcing teams to play over us to our fairly quick and decent in the air CB's (particularly Diagne) or play through us, where we press aggresively before looking to counter quickly through the wide spaces, trying to find space in the channels for either a cross or a shot. Wingers have been told to roam. Any help appreciated
I am testing out some new formations and tactics. I usually use 4 defender formations and find I can defend against most opponents equally well. But now that I am trying more formations with 3 at the back, I am realizing that my opponents cross me to death. They attempt 30 or more crosses per game and complete >15% of them. So my question to you is how have you tried to mitigate this crossing weakness when using 3 at the back? My current formation: 3-5-2 / Counter / Flexible / Retain Possession / Work Ball Into Box / Play Out Of Defence SK(d) CD(x) - CD(c) - CD(x) CWB(s) - CWB(s) BBM(s) - RPM(S) EG(A) DLF(s) - AF(a) I am considering dropping my wingbacks back to make it a true 5-3-2, but that feels a bit negative. I have tried playing my two central midfielders in the DM strata, but that doesn't produce a noticeable change. I am aiming for ~55% possession, greater efficiency with shots/scoring chances, and conceding about 1 goal per game or less. My central defenders are all excellent, with jumping, heading, marking, tackling, and positioning of 15+, and my goalkeeper is excellent in the air.
