I've read a Spielverlagerung article based on Giampaolo's Empoli team (Team Analysis: Empoli - Spielverlagerung) and would like to replicate what I've learnt into FM. I am struggling to get the structure of team right and would like some help with that. What I'm looking to do is get the Formation/Player Roles/Player Duties/Player Instructions right. From what I've learned these are the key structural elements from Giampaolo's Empoli: The fullbacks have a deep starting position when the team is building-up play and then make forward runs when the ball is safely played into midfield The middle MC is a key player for the team as the primary ball progressor The wider MCs more laterally to open space to play centrally and also to make an option for the deep fullbacks to pass down the line The STCs attack the channels but also make receiving movements to get on the ball - kind of working in tandem And this a picture of how these type of movements would work in relation to the base formation. Spielverlagurug usually include this kind of image themselves when they make similar articles on other teams. Because they didn't, I made my own. Hopefully it's somewhat similar to what they would have done. Thanks in Advance!
Hi All Why can I not find ANY youtube videos about the use of 4-3-1-2 in FM2019? Is this formation impossible to succeed with in FM2019? I can't find any evidence of other people using this formation successfully in FM2019 anywhere. Would be great to use it as a way to get both Aubameyanga nd Lacazette in the same team as well as Ozil for Arsenal...
Hi! So I've just started a new save with my team, United. Was given £90 million which is a decent amount but not amazing in terms of buying quality players. So my main goal was signing young players on cheap deals and improving overall squad depth, as I know the injuries are quite frankly overkill in this game. But I need some help in regards to how I set up my squad, I wanna try a 4-1-2-3, with one holding midfielder there to provide cover for the attacking left back, Shaw or Tierney. However most of my players are box to box midfielders and/or playmakers, which perhaps suits a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1. My right wing options aren't great, Jesse Lingard and Jesus Corona being the two natural ones, Sanchez might play there, but I wanna use Martial on the left a lot, as an Inside Forward on Attack Duty. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any good CB options, so I'm stuck with the current five, three of which are incredibly injury prone and another is Smalling. I like a CD (S) with a BPD (C) combination, reminiscent of Vidic and Ferdinand respectively. In the last few years I've always favoured direct wing play, but with a previous save that got yeeted, the approach was very inconsistent, and my midfielders, unless they scored, got **** poor ratings for some reason, as well as one of my two fullbacks getting a 6.2 more often than not. Feel like I wanna use the playmaking abilities of the likes of Pogba, Bentancur etc. (Mata was shocking in the previous save and I kinda intend to sell him on for some money) in the midfield, to play balls over the top to guys like Martial, Rashford, Sanchez etc. Perhaps Lingard as a 10 could work, with Pogba as the Mezzala, Bentancur as the deep playmaker, and someone like Fred or Herrera being the box to box. So yeah, what roles, formations and tactical approaches would you recommend? Cheers xo
