Just wondered people’s take on focusing play through the middle. My take on it is that it increases the mentality of the central midfielders? I also feel it focuses the play to my lone central striker who scores most of the goals. Does this instruction come at a cost to my wide players?

It (slightly) increases the mentality of central defenders, defensive midfielders (regardless of their duty) and only defend-duty central midfielders. Not sure if it also increases the mentality of the goalkeeper, but I guess it does.

Will it focus players passing to the striker more so than the wingers? Or overlapping wing backs?

Passing becomes centrally focused.  I think that you get slightly less fwd run from wide players too.  Hope that last bit isn't out of date.

i ve tried with attacking width wide and focus on center, it just got me some more dribbling and direct long passes to the wings from the central players

I'd have thought it would benefit inside forwards as, rather than balls being played out wide where you don't want them to be, there should (in theory) be more passes coming centrally for them to run in behind the defenders on to.

I find it to help me to focus through the middle against a 4231 with the space behind the CM'S, that may be placebo, but it feels like it helps. As other users have said passing become central so it kinda forces your wide players central...?

If you tick “look for overlap”, untick it. Get your CMs to “take more risks”. Might see an Improvement.

attacking width obligates where your passing is building attacks. if its wide (even fairly) your team will try to build from wide and the same goes for narrow. as central defender said it just increases the mentality.
