The High Defensive Line & Vertical Compactness

Recommended Posts

I understand that a fluid of very fluid system will decrease the distance between the lines. Would coupling a fluid system with a higher than usual for the team shape increase the compactness, or would it simply make the team as a whole play higher up the pitch? For example, if I set my team shape to Standard in a very fluid system would my team be more compact, or simply more likely to close down well ( with the more closing down instruction)? I want as little space between the lines as possible. Will a higher or much higher d-line make that happen?

No need to bump the thread after only an hour.

Mentality will affect the width of your team, not really the vertical compactness.

Shorter Passing and Retain Possession can help with reducing space - passes are shorter therefore players have to be closer together.

A higher def line will also help reduce space from your back line.

Thanks. Higher D-line moves the defense closer to midfield, but not the midfield closer to attackers. This is useful info.
