My tactic - I want opinions

Recommended Posts

Hello guys! (sorry for bad english)

So, I started a save with a team from the second league of Portugal, Académico de Viseu

First of all, expectations are mid table. One thing that I found in this league is that, all teams have pretty decent squads, I can't say that 1 particular team has a very very good team, I think every team has strong players and weak players, it's a well balanced league.

I will start to talk about my team.

Both of AML/R, good finishing, the AML has very good pace and the AMR has a little less pace but good mentals and high finishing.

My midfielder is very good too, my DLP-S has very good mentals and technical attributes.

My defensive midfielder is pretty decent too. My left back is a good ofensive fullback very well rounded but the right fullback is a little weak, clearly this is the weak point in my team. 

My other midfielder has very good techicals, not soo much mentals but he is average, I got him from a team from the first league.

 

What I want ? I want a solid tactic, well balanced, that can score goals but be very solid at the back. I don't want to score 20 goals if I suffer 21. I want a tactic that is not as much offensive nor defensive.

So, this is what I tought when I created this tactic.

My AF pretty standard, a well-rounded player, good pace, good finishing.

Both of my wingers have the opposite foot, my left winger has slightly less finishing but he has 17 pace, so I wanted him to carry the counter-attacks, I even let him join the AF in defensive corners. My right wingers has very good technicals and mentals, good finishing, good dribble and off the ball, he is clearly the goal threat.

One thing I was wondering. My left winger is not much of a goal threat like my right winger, so I tried to use my right winger as IF-A to let him close to the goal and sometimes I use my left winger as Inverted Winger, what do you think guys ?

So, my midfielder, I think is pretty standard, a Anchor Man to give cover to the my defence, a DLP-S, the DLP is the best player in my team, he is 32, he has very good technical and mentals, perfect to dictate the game and be a ball-magnet. My CM-A I wanted him to act like a box to box, he can defend but he will also attack the opposite box when chance presents.

My fullbacks. My left fullback is much better than my right fullback, he can play FB-A, WB-A with no problems, but as I said, I want to play a balanced tactic so I used FB-A, so he can provide more defensive help, the same way to the right fullback, he is not very good techincally so I didn't want to be as much further in the pitch.

Talking about instructions. So, I want to play more direct because I think I don't have a very creative team, I didn't want to play a possession game because I don't have the players with high creativity or mentals, I think its not good to play possession if I don't have the players who can pull that amazing pass or discover a mate in a running behind the defence. I wanted to be more disciplined and high tempo because I believe that If I don't have the ball I can't commit mistakes, so I wanted to chase goal as much fast and more incisive than slow tempo.

Remind: I want to create a good solid tatic, with a solid defence but who can score goals.

I will post now the tactic.

What do you guys think ? Anything you would change ?

If you literally put arrows on players (like you once could) aren't the right winger and the attacking central mid both headed for the same space?

And a question for you,  Why have you chosen to attack narrow and defend wide?  Plus why have you dropped the line of engagement?

What do you suggest ? Change the MC-A to an AP-S maybe ? I wanted the MC to arrive later in the area. Both of the IF's stay on the edge of the opposite box. But If i switch the MC-A to an AP it won't be a problem to use 2 playmakers in this kind of setup ?

I defend wide because my center backs are not very good physically, they don't have good impulsion and most of the crosses that are made into my area I think that my center backs will lose more headers than they should win, thats why I wanted to my fullbacks stay wider and stop that crosses.

I dropped the line of engagement because I want to be compact. I didn't want to change the defensive line because I don't want to be very passive because that can lead to many longshots that will probably hit the back of the net.

What role you suggest to the MC-A ? Both of players that I use in that role they can perform AP-S too.

In possession the whole thing just looks too centralised.  A no.9 down the middle, two wide forward cutting in, a central midfielder attacking up the middle and you have narrowed your attacking formation.  It just seems to me that if the opposition defends a little deep, narrow and compact - a habit the AI often has - then your lack of variety will become a frustration.  i realise you have released one full back forward but alone I'm not sure he will be enough.

If you change the that midfielder to a playmaker you may prevent both players in the same zones but you are still going to be overly reliant on central play.  Thats just my take.

I changed my left wingack into support and the right to a fullback on support. I changed the MC-A into a BBM and I kept the roles for the 2 wingers.

Look, my best players are in the wings, both of my wingers have decent finish and they can be a goal threat, with my fullbacks I think I can do some wing play while a BBM can overcrowd too the central areas.

What more suggestions you can give ?
