INTERNAZIONALE MILANO F.C. "This wonderful night bestows us with the colours of our crest: black and blue against a gilded backdrop of stars. It shall be called Internazionale, because we are brothers of the world." 9 March 1908, Milan 22nd May 2010 is a day Inter Milan will never forget, as Inter ended a 45-year wait for another UEFA Champions League trophy. A brace from Diego Milito saw Inter defeat Bayern Munich and complete a historic treble for Mourinho`s men, also fulfiliing Massimo Moratti`s dream of winning Europe`s no. 1 competition, just like his father did. Inter were again the champions of Europe and few would have predicted what happened next....Mourinho left for Real Madrid, and despite a Coppa Italia win in 2011 and a 2nd place in the Serie A, Inter were going dowhill. In the following seasons, a change in ownership came, but Inter failed to finish on the podium and hit their lowest with a 9th place finish at the end of 2012-13 season. My goals: 1. Return to the Champions League (short-term goal) - Champions League money are crucial if we are to compete with Juventus, so a top-4 finish for the first season is a must 2. Stop Juventus` domination (short-term goal) - enough is enough, they`ve won 6 in a row and will probably make it 7, but it has to stop. 3. Beat the neighbors` (AC Milan) European Cup/Champions League trophy haul (long-term goal) - with Inter being at 3 and Milan at 7 trophies, it`s not going to be an easy task. And whilst it won`t exactly be one of my goals for this save, it would be great to be able to "knock Juventus off their ***** perch". For realism purposes, I`ve decided to make no transfers during the first transfer window. I`ll also stay away from the obvious wonderkids and unlike previous Inter managers, I`ll try and give youth players a chance.
Introduction There are 2 things that I see a lot of people have trouble with on these forums. The first is people either not knowing what style of football suits there squad the most, or playing a style that contradicts the players that are currently at the team. The second problem is people wondering why there star player isn't performing. This thread aims to give a method for building a tactic that fights both of these issues. Here we are going to build a squad, and a system that is purely designed to get the best out of one player in the team. Every decision that is made will be for the benefit of this one player. The player should either be chosen due to a unique set of attributes, or simply because be is your best player. The chosen one I'm sure most of you are familiar with this guy, the heir to Pirlo. This is a screenshot that I found on the internet, I have just finished season 1, so my version of Tonali will be slightly better, although the spread of attributes will be largely identical. Step 1: What does this player offer? and what are his drawbacks? How can we use this to create a style of play? Tonali can play as either a central, or defensive midfielder, and likes the role of a deep lying playmaker with a defend duty. It's worth checking if he would be better as any other role or position, but i can't see any better alternatives. He could use his passing range to play as a regista, but that would neglect his good defensive attributes, such as 14 positioning and 13 tackling. He also won't be at his best as a purely defensive player, as this would neglect his excellent playmaking attributes and ppms. Now ,we already have our first role, duty and position decided for our tactic. The key ppms that I would like to draw your attention to are: dictates tempo, tries killer balls, and tries long passes. This suggests that Tonali will be effective playing a sort of 'Quarterback role' - where he can recieve short passes from either the cbs, or the keeper, and launch long passes to either a target man, or into space for others to run on to. This brings us onto some team instructions we could use, as well as some other roles for his teammates. Ti's: Play out of defence Goalkeeper distribution to playmaker More direct passing Pass into space (?) (this is dependant on whether Tonali makes enough risky passes with his ppm) Counter we can also use this information to decide on what kind of block we would like to use. In this case, I think we should use a mid block, this is because, if we press too high, there would be no space to launch these long direct passes into, and if we press too low, then we won't have the ball enough for Tonali to dictate the tempo of the game. Tonali is also equally comfortable off the ball as he is on it. This means that we should probably aim for a possession stat of around 50%. Ti's: Play out of defence Goalkeeper distribution to playmaker More direct passing Pass into space (?) Lower line of engagement Press more intensely Now, before even opening the game and looking at any other players, we already have a list of preliminary instructions, and a few ideas for team roles.
