FM 2012: Player Role & Duty Thread - Offering You The Best Possible Advices!

Recommended Posts

targetman with so little heading and jumping? poor balance and strength also

Target Man is not necessarily e.g. Peter Crouch you know? It could be small, fast and eve more ''limited'' player then a poacher, so you don't want him to try anything else, but to run onto ball and try to score.

i thought the best use of torres was bench warming :p

524813FC48E7B0BA5B9772FB7F67DEDCE53EB28C

formation flat 4-4-2 and flat 4-5-1 (rarly)

How about posting as per format in the OP?

what do you guys think about Falcao? just signed him for my dortmund team and the club staff suggests DLF (attack).

I am playing 4-2-3-1 with two IF's and one poacher, Sturridge has been brilliant in that.

Didn't want to change that tactic, but feel falcao will not suit a poacher role as he lacks pace/acceleration and could be easily blocked by any of the two defenders.

Name:Filip Jankovic

Position: AMC ( retraining to be a ST)

Role: Poacher/ Adv Forward

Duty: Score tons of goals

Other additional instructions:

Club: Red Star Belgrade

Club's formation: 4-5-1

What do you want from your player: Same as duty. I play with only one striker. Pretty stocked in the MC position but I have to find a way to fit this kid in my First XI.

My formation does not use AM's so that leaves me 2 options - retrain him as an MC or play him up front. Which would be best in your opinion and what role & duty should I go for?

Due to his low-ish creativity, I think he would be more suited to play up front. He has good aerial ability as well which is more suited to a Striker. Either Complete Forward - Attack/Support, Deep Lying Forward - Attack or Poacher - Attack depending on his PPM's. Also, it depends on who is your best striker after him, is it a poacher-type striker or a deep lying creative type?

Thanks for the response. He has no PPM's, should I teach him some? Also, he would be partnering a deep lying creative type so I guess poacher could be the best option.

You could ask him to learn to place his shots which might have him score more or just play him as a Poacher and I think he will score loads anyways :)

He definitely suits BWM - Defend/Support but could obviously be trained to be a DLP however I think that even with the training, his best possible role would still be BWM

Cheers. He did actually have slightly better passing/creativity when I had bought him, but I put him on my DM training schedule in the 1st season so that has shifted some of his attributes towards being a BWM. I guess I should just stick with it now then.

I would play Ganso as a Advanced Playmaker (Support). I'm not sure why isn't he performing for you. Neymar is a Poacher.

Hi Guys,

I am unsure as to whether I should use Berbatov and Rooney as a DLF-Support or CF-Support alongside a Poacher.

What would you do?

Berbatov is definitely Deep Lying Forward (Support) while you can use Rooney in every role and duty. I personally use them both as Deep Lying Forwards (Support) with tweaked settings.

This guy is on the fringes on my first team... really want to bring him on cos he is english and young and come through the ranks

Anyway... my question is... do you think I should retrain him as a striker? I'm just not sure he has the technical attributes to play CM. I don't play with AM so its a box to box role really. I tend to play him against weaker teams where we need goals and he does get assists but i wonder if he'll fare better as a striker based ion his attributes?

What do you guys think? a lot of hassle retraining him, he has no current rating for STR

Position: ST

Role: Trequartista (and I've also tried him as a Deep Lying Forward)

Duty: Attack

Other additional instructions:

Club: AC Milan

Club's formation: 4-1-2-1-2

What do you want from your player: Scoring and assist. He's been getting very poor ratings, and when I've tried warning/fining, he reacts very badly. And his 'Shoots from Distance' PPM is annoying, as he misses most of the time. I've tried getting him to unlearn without luck.

I play him as a striker up front on his own. He doesn't seem to play well unless he starts well. Would it be better having someone as inexperienced not playing up front on his own? But even when I play him with another striker (usually Leandro Damiao) he's still hit and miss.

If none of your strikers are scoring goals, you might want to look at your midfield. Are they getting enough of the ball, creating good enough chances? Don't think it's a coincidence that both top class strikers can't score.
