Has anyone been able to create a tactic yet that mimics how Utd are now playing under Solskjaer, there has been a bit more of a sample size in terms of games so interested to see what wiser minds from this forum's take on it. Also would be interested if anyone has come up with what you might call a "tradition Man Utd" tactic. Solskjaer coming back into the club has led to a lot of comments about Utd being back playing in their traditional manner with Gary Neville saying "No one should ever be allowed to enter Manchester United Football Club ever again and adopt a different philosophy to the one the club has." I would class Utd's tradition as quick/fast attacking play with wingers and width played by younger players with flair and no fear. Perhaps the classic Utd tactic and the Solskjaer tactic are one in the same but I would always associate Classic Utd with a 442, flying wingers and attacking full backs. It would have a striker that drops off the front ala Cantona/Yorke/Sheringham. Where's Ole's tactic is a 433 with Lingard roaming on the right, Matrial cutting inside on the left, width being provided by the full backs and Pogba given a lot of licence to get forward from centre midfield. Anyway enough of me rambling on, has anyone been able to create anything such as the above? If so, could you share or direct me to where i can see it? (I'm sure that if anyone has created something similar, then they will want to create/or will have already create a thread of their own)
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
