After issues with under performing AMC in 19, I started trying more 2 striker formations initially a 4-2-2wide-2 which was great against weaker teams, then a straight 4-4-2 and a 4-2dm-2wm-2 for the big boys and I adapted these from a 4-2-3-1 setup using more modern player roles, the front 2 are a PF(a)+CF(s) seem to work well on 20 at the moment. What I would like to do is build a traditional 4-4-2, which anybody who watched British football in the 70s and 80s will know what I mean, I also want to make it a 3 in 1 tactic so one of the alternatives would be adjusted mentality and lines and the third possibly a 4-1-3-2 with narrow wide midfielders. I plan on testing during beta and then long term to bring 80s 4-4-2 back to the top. I would like to get advice on player duties for the traditional game, also on whether 3rd tactic should be 3 at the back or another off the back of the 4-4-2? Tactical style I'm guessing clean slate, just let them play, basically no TI or additional PI well apart from use offside trap. I'm also interested in advice for a 4-4-2 based tactic for use against the big boys, as my defensive tactic that I used in 19 against the big boys just isn't cutting it in 20, though I also introduced it after few seasons with squad so that may influence the effectiveness. I see the 4-4-2 like this GK(d) FB CD CD FB Should the FB be support or auto? CB traditional but NCB acceptable? WM CM CM WM Should WM be W? One CM on def other on sup or att? Possible the WM mark opposing FB/WB? 4-1-3-2 with a DM(s)+CM(d)+2WM? TM ?? As much as I'm enjoying my PF+CF pairing at the moment, traditionally I think it has to be a TM plus I think poacher, don't think the other alternatives suit? Any feedback or thoughts welcome.
