Without getting into too much detail regarding my current save i am currently playing as Celta in La Liga and have Nolito in my side who seems like the perfect inside forward and with a couple of perfect specimins coming through the ranks as well that i would like to take advantage of my issue is how to get the most out of these players.

My main question is what do you consider the best instructions for an inside forward?

I am unsure wheather i want him staying out wide and then using his prefered move of cutting inside or should i have him stay narrow for a majority of the time? and also unsure regarding wether i want him shooting more often, the idea is that he a major goal threat in my side but i dont want him taking long shots all the time.

My secondary question is for reasons of squad numbers and atcking tatical reasons i would like my inside forwards to also be able to do a job as strikers. i guess in this role i see them as poachers (do you think this correct? i guess i see him playing in a way Jamie Vardy does for England, but succesfully)

in addition to this i would be insterested to get peoples opinion on what role to play along side them as i am currently playing a support complete striker up front (with the inside forwards out wide) but when they push up do you think i am better moving this to a deep lying forward a false nine or even moving them down to an advanced playmaker in the central attacking midfielder role.

Thanks

There's no right or wrong answer here, only generalisations. All roles in a system need to balance with each other, so you shouldn't just look at one role in isolation.

If you want someone running at the defence, linking up with the striker, cutting in off the wings then use the Inside Forward role. If you want someone mainly staying out wide, crossing the ball into the box but also getting into the box when the ball is on the other wing, use the Winger role. But having said that, we don't even know if you are using players in the AML/R positions - if you are using ML/R then perhaps the wider midfielder role with adjusted PIs is for you.

Then again, perhaps the wide playmaker, the raumdeuter or even the advanced playmaker roles would suit your system. Only you can tell as only you can see your system - we don't even know your formation.

It's the same with the striker role. If you have someone dropping deep (say an F9), that can free up space behind defenders for your 'wide player" to run into. Equally you can have a more attack minded striker (say an AF) who would help push defenders back and free up space in front for your "wide player" to take advantage of.

There are all sorts of combinations and possibilities, so without detail it's impossible to give definite answers. Have a think about how you want to play and experiment.

If you need further help once you have created a tactic and seen it in action, please read the sticky at the top of this forum about asking for help so you know what information we'll need to be able to help you.

I guess i saw it as more of general topic of discussion on how different people use them but might not have done a good job in explaining that. For reference though this is how i am currently set up.

Formation:

i currently have set up with the following player instructions:

But was wondering people opinions on using him in a tactic such as:

Hope this is clearer.

What kind of system fits a raumdeuter would you say?

The inside forward is pretty versatile IMO depending on what you want from the specific player. For instance in my 4-3-3, I want one of my IF to act as a secondary goal scorer so I have him set on attack duty with the sit narrower PI or sometimes none at all (still tinkering to find what works best). My second IF, I want to function as a secondary playmaker, so I have him set on support duty with the sit narrower PI so my full back has room overlap on that side. Looking at your system I'm guessing you want your IF to be the primary goal scorers? If so a False 9 or DLP might work better to help create chances for those IF's

If I may add my two cents, most systems can work. One striker or two, possession on more direct play, as longs as space is being created, a Raumdeuter will exploit it. The question you should ask yourself is how to create space for him. This can be, but unlimited to a Striker dropping deep or a central midfielder advancing forward with the ball from deep. In both cases they can magnetize an opposition CB to them and create space for your Raumdeuter.

What I am seeing is a lot of the FM community is obsessed with the idea of Inside Forwards and strikers on support duty. That might work for exceptional sides like Barca, but even when they played Messi as a F9, they usually had Pedro as a Winger.

Unless your side is as spectacular, I'd prefer to keep it simple. While there is nothing wrong with having an IF as a big goal threat, the main threat should be the striker. If the striker is not a goal threat, I'd be looking to buy a new striker or convert my IF.

On the off chance you have a superb goal scoring IF and a genuinely creative support striker (ie not someone you are too "hipster" to play as a poacher) then it's vital you have someone playing the most underrated role in FM - the winger! Otherwise who is going to provide the service for your IF?

Im currently using a quick direct 4-2-3-1 with TWO IF's set on support, and a AF with a AP attack behind him, my front three get goals, Coutinho scored a few for me but Ibe and Origi really surprised me in the IF roles.
