'Underlapping' fullbacks

Recommended Posts

Opposed to overlapping fullbacks, who exploit space on the flanks created by "wingers" going inside, I want my fullback to cut inside, both with and without the ball. An illustration of what I'm looking for:

Browsing the internet in search for something similar, i stumbled upon RTH's article about 4-6-0, where he managed to create exactly what i am now trying. Logically, I copied the idea, FB(A) with Cuts inside PI and Winger(support) up front. However, my winger tends to get "inside", even though he has Stay wider hardcoded in his role. I have chosen Bernat for the winger role, since he doesn't have Cuts inside PPM, so I could exclude that effect. Some screenshots:

Tried it with CWB and IWB (with Get further forward PI) also, but no significant improvement. I haven't used any TIs, since i am only trying out this idea before implementing it in any particular tactic. Any ideas?

Roam from position, sit narrower and/or move into channels so that he will tuck in like a Raumdeuter. Can also try using an opposite foot(left foot on right flank and vice-versa) player.

Someone also logged in a bug saying wingers are not 100% working as it should be. As it's tactically and could have a knock on, I'm not too sure if it's actually fixed in the latest patch.

As it can be seen on the screenshots above, Bernat cuts inside from AML (winger (support)) even though his preferred foot is Left only and he has no Cut inside PPM. That's why I find it hard to connect those two so closely.

I'm merely speculating here, as I haven't actually tried it. But what about a DW/D, or a WM/D in the LM spot with instructions to stay wide, with a CWB/A behind him, with associated PIs?

Essentially creating a blockade for the FB, so he is forced to cut inside. He'll need good attributes on top of that (off the ball, decisions), but I think it's doable. I think you're also better off with a right footer at LB for this.

The IWB is what this is for, really, but as I understand it, the way they operate is to cut inside when they have the ball at their feet.
