  1. Hi, I play in league one so I need two teams to rotate because of mid week games. I save two different team selections but before each game I have to change the player roles one by one. (ball winning - box to box) for example. Is there a way to save the player roles as well as team selection so I don't need to do it manually each time?
  2. I’ve read that the games descriptions of mentality and team shape are poorly written. For example that Counter is actually a better mentality for control than control. Is there a thread on here that translates things from the tactical screen, and offers shared observations about instructions, individual instructions, roles etc? I’m quite hungry to expand my playing styles in different careers, as well as learn how to make tactical changes based on the ME and not using real life logic and staring at misunderstood instruction definitions. Also ive seen people make comments such as “the recommended attributes for a position are guidelines only, if you employ a trequarista with strength, stamina and pace you have a completely different animal” Id love to find a thread dedicated to translating and brainstorming player roles also, as I feel there is more to the game than the misleading face value in game descriptions. I have favourite player roles but would like to understand them all.
  3. I have difficulty understanding the difference between how the several roles on the flanks impacts defensive responsibilities. For example, how does an Inside Forward and a Winger impact how they defend? And secondly, what is the difference between Wing backs and Full backs not just in terms of defending but in regards to attacking, also. I struggle to tell the difference between any of the full back roles. Any help would be appreciated.
  4. Trequartista Hold up ball & run wide with ball options are not available at CF spot. They are available at CFR & CFL is this intentional? FC FLC
  5. When I try to change roles on the tactics screen, all the role labels are white and empty until I scroll over them
  6. Trequartista in Forward Centre spot has not option of hold up ball or run wide with ball? is this intentional? Trequartista CFL & CFR enables hold up ball and run wide with ball options
  7. Hi there, Is there any resource that thoroughly details different player roles based on formations or strategies? I'm looking for a complete resource or various partial resources to see how players in different positions operate under different player roles in different formations/strategies. Example: A striker with "False 9" role does (movements, defensive duties etc.) X, Y, Z if he's playing in a 4-4-2 formation A winger with "defensive winger" role does (movements, defensive duties etc.) X, Y, Z if he's playing in a 4-1-4-1 formation in a team that's playing attacking, direct, high pressing football A defender with "limited defender" role does (movements, defensive duties etc.) X, Y, Z if he's playing in a 4-3-3 formation in a team that's playing control, short passing, creative football Also, I would like to learn more about how a player operates in conjunction with other players in the team with different roles. Example: A central midfielder (with ball winning midfielder role with defense duties, who's the middle person in a three man midfield) does (movements, defensive duties etc.) X, Y, Z in a 4-3-3 narrow formation with short passing when the other two midfielders have an "Advanced Playmaker" role A striker with "Target Man" role does (movements, defensive duties etc.) X, Y, Z in a 4-1-2-2-1 wide formation with direct passing when the wingers have an "Inside Forward" role I'm aware of pairs and combinations & the Football Manager's guide to Football management (Also, if someone can give me a review of this book, the 6 reviews on Amazon not helping much) - but before diving deeper into them, I want to make sure these are covered in details and if there are other better/updated resources. Thanks
  8. I normally favor a 4-1-2-1-2 with a narrow midfield diamond, trying to dominate possession and break down the opposition through short passing. I prefer this formation to wider ones as I find it's easier to build and rotate a squad with several narrow players who are more flexible/interchangeable than trying to stockpile a certain amount of left vs right sided players, for example. It's always nice to have a few guys who can comfortably rotate between DM/CM and CM/AM, etc. Ideally my bottom three include a DLP, BWM, and BTB, or perhaps even an anchor man if available. My question is just a general poll of the community to see if there are any other players experienced with this formation and get a feel for what player roles they've utilize to positive or negative results. What player roles do you use for the AM position? Do you get better results with a DLP in the DM or CM position? What roles do you give the fullbacks to compensate for the lack of width in midfield? Best striker role partnership? And so on and so forth.
