Which striker further forward?

Recommended Posts

When you set your strikers up do you have the left sided or right sided striker further forward? 

Most tactics I see have the left striker further forward but I always thought it would be best to have the right sided striker further forward (as an advanced striker for instance) especially if he is right footed?

I don't think it matters too much which side is further forward. As long as they're not trying to occupy the same spaces by carrying out the same role

For me, it depends on what is going on elsewhere in the formation.  For example, if I have an attacking CM who is very one sided, I would likely play the striker who is further forward on the same side to make sure that players don't occupy the same space.

Depends if the striker "places his shots", or "blasts them in the back of the net" .

If he places his shots and he is right footed, I position him in the left forward slot. If he's left footed, I position him on the right. That way his shots towards the far post curl inwards. 

If he blasts the ball and he's right footed, I place him on the right and vice versa.
