What Roles and Duty's best suit my players?

  1. What Roles and Duty's best suit my players?

    If you're struggling to choose what role or duty best suites certain players then ask in here.So for example,if your not sure weather you should play Messi as a winger or a inside forward,or with an attacking or support role then put your queries here.

    Please be concise and to the point,and if possible give a screenshot or description of your formation.


    *EDIT

    See this thread for descriptions of player roles.

  3. Is that 4-3-3 with a AML and AMR or with 3 strikers?

  4. with 3 strikers the midfield has wingmans as well

  5. Play Ibrahimovic central as a Complete Forward.
    Play Rooney as a Deep lying forward.
    Play Villa as a poacher.

  6. ok will try it out thanks. their duties all set as attack?
    what abt my midfielders?
    nani is my left wing and valencia ismy right wing iniesta is my central
    what roles should i give thm?

  7. Well your going to be weak in the middle of the park but if its how you want to play id say Iniesta as a Deep lying playmaker, the 2 wide men as wide midfeilders. All should have support dutys.

  8. thats true i guess. do u think it's possible to use a diffrent formation but with the same players above?

  9. I use liverpool, just got veloso for my team. i use 4-2-3-1 deep
    what is the best position for him, for mascherano? any suggestion for good inside forward?

    Veloso ,Deep lying playmaker or defensive midfielder.

    Mascherano i would say would be best as an anchor man.

    I would like you expert advise JP

    Louis Saha.?

  12. Demba Ba?

  13. i play man city with a 4 1 2 3 formation. back 4, mainly gabriel milito and toure, then my full backs change depending on whether i want them to defend more or attack, between richards, zabaleta as rb, bridge lukkovic and kolorov(excuse spellings) de rossi as anchorman, barry and fabregas as cm, and adebayor, van persie and robinho as main 3 strikers. but they can change as i also play bellamy, santa cruz, tevez, and occaisionaly jovetic who plays well as striker or winger. would be grateful for as much info and advise as you can give.

    Demba Ba is a fast player who would suit from a complete forward role with a possible target man for him to play beside however I do believe he has potential to be a poacher and target man if setting balls to run onto.

    Well Louis Saha i would play as either an advanced forward or a poacher if he's playing alongside a Target man or complete striker.

    Well your not asking much

    CB's Both ball playing Centre backs i think is best at top level.
    Id play the 2 Fullbacks as fullbacks with a support mentality.
    Stick with De Rossi as Anchor,Barry best is suited to a deep lying playmaker and Fabregas as advanced playmaker.
    Santa Cruz and Adebayor should be either a target man or Complete forward.Van Persie a deep lying forward. Robinho and Bellamy are Poachers. Tevez a Trequartista.

    Clint Dempsey for Fulham, can't figure out what to set him as in CM as he hasn't really got more defensive than attacking stats or vice versa Cheers JP for the help

    A poor choice for lone striker because his strength and heading ability is so poor,so target man is out of the question.Try Complete forward.

    He's my best forward and i have 3 attacking mids supporting him, its working well though, 11 goals in 13games..

  29. Quote Originally Posted by JP Woody View Post

    im playing a Chelsea-esque 4-1-2-1-2 , Mascherano anchor man. Aquliani Advanced playmaker. Ballack/angel di maria Central Midfielder .. And Gerrard being the Trequartista.

  30. who plays better as ball-winning midfielder (defend)? Nigel de Jong or Sissoko?

  31. i'm playing man utd and i'm kinda struggling 1st season i was using a 4-3-1-2 and i ended up 2nd in league... the 2nd season i used a 4-1-4-1 (one DM, 2 MC, 2 Wingers and 1 ST).. and I won the premier and the ECC...

    however on my 3rd season i bought players to make the squad stronger (sánchez for winger, camacho for DM and Toulalán as a replacement for Deco).. and i haven't lose , but after 10 prm matches I have 4 wins and 6 draws (against Hull and Stoke at Old Trafford, so... 2 points lost )...

    my squad is like this :

    Adler
    Demétrio (regen but AWESOME)
    Vidic,
    Evans,
    Evra;
    Camacho (DMC, what role should be good 4 him?);
    Anderson (MC) (I have also Toulalan, Carrick, Deco and Hargreaves; which pair would u recommend me and which roles 4 each? )
    Fletcher (MC) (I have also Toulalan, Carrick, Deco and Hargreaves; which pair would u recommend me and which roles 4 each? )
    Sanchez (AMR , I also have valencia)
    Jovetic (AML, i can put Sanchez or Rooney)
    Dzeko (or Rooney).


    thx a looot i've been thinking.. do i just need time to make 'em adjust to the EPL or i'm flopping with the tactic? if it worked so well why isn't working well now?

  32. Hi, both my CBs need to have the same role? I was wondering which is best role/ duty for Colloccini and Steven Taylor for Toon

    Im not sure this is a question for this thread. Maybe your team needs to gel and you need to be less impatient and more realistic or the tactic simply isnt as good as you think.

    No they can play 2 different roles iof you want them to,like one as a stopper and one as a ball playing CB.

    Try Taylor as a Stopper and Coloccini as a CB or ball playing CB

  34. I play a 4 5 1 formation with bolton

    Fullback; Automatic
    CB: Stopper
    CB: Cover
    Fullback: Automatic
    DM: Anchor Man
    CM: Central Midfielder (Support)
    CM: Advanced Playmaker (Attack)
    AMR: Defensive Winger (Attack)
    AML Defensive Winger (Attack)
    ST: Target Man (support)

    I play mark davies as the playmaker but I'm not sure if I should put sean davis or muamba as anchor man, people are saying I should ship off Muamba.

    also my strikers are klasnic, kevin davies, and johan elmander, should I have the target man on support or attack?
    thanks in advance

    Sissoko IMO is better at winning the ball, but his distribution is quite poor, so if you got creative players around him, that problem is solved. De jong has slightly better passing and creative attributes. So if your looking for someone to sit in front of the back4 and decimate opposition's midfield and intercept passes Momo is your man .

    The anchor man should have good defensive and strength ability's because that's what he's going to be doing,he's basically a defender in midfeild. Muamba would be ideal.

    Because your striker is a lone striker i would give him an attack duty,strikers should only be given support mentality's when they have an attack partner like a poacher up front with them.

  37. thanks mate I set to attack for a league cup game and managed to beat chelsea 3-2, although we were a bit lucky

  38. I play 4-3-3 with Napoli with 2 MC and 1 DMC. Currently have Veloso, Hamsik and Gourcuff for the three central midfield roles, with Moussa Sissoko, Vukcevic and Busquets as backup. What roles would be the best for them? Thanks.

  39. Hi guys im using jpwoodys 4-2-3-1 which is going great for my liverpool team and have a few midfielders likegrerrard, mouthino,yossi,aquilani,mascherano,kuyt and have bought pato and trained him to play in attacking midfield and suggestions?

  41. Hi JP Woody, i managed Real Madrid. I use 4-3-3 formation.
    Midfield : Xabi Alonso/Guti - Kaka - Lassana/Mahamadou Diarra
    Striker : Ronaldo - Raul/Nistelrooy - Benzema/Higuain
    Now i wanna ask you, what the right position for ronaldo, nistelrooy, benzema/higuain? And how about xabi and lassana/mahamadou?

    so i'm using inter.. my formation is 4-1-2-1-2
    for the striker i'm using the combination of Nistelrooy(poacher), eto'o(complete forward), or milito(poacher) and balotelli (advanced forward) all attack..

    but they can't get the goal that i've been waiting. any suggestion?

    also for the 2 midfielder,, i tend to use stankovic(central midfield attack) and muntari (ball winning midfielder support)

    is there any better way?

    thanks for the help

    i think , nistelrooy ( target man ) , Etoo ( Poacher ) , Milito ( complete forward ) , Balotelli ( Inside Forward ) , Stankovic ( Attackin Midfield attack ) , Muntari ( anchor man )

  45. New Kenny Dalglish

    So, if I were trying to recreate a Liverpool best XI ever tactic would my "Kenny Dalglish" player be a striker set to trequartista? On support? Or an AMC set to advanced play-maker? On attack?

    I know the thread has more of a "what role suits my player" theme, but due to the nature of the tactic's creation I kinda have to do it in reverse...

    Any help would be HUGELY appreciated!

    Complete forward alongside a poacher always seems to work for me.Make the stronger forward the complete forward and the quicker one the poacher,play them both with attack mentallity's.

    Well the deep lying forward is a bit more attacking than a defensive forward who will almost play as a advanced midfielder.A poacher is set up to be a selfish goal scorer while an advanced forward will play other players in more.

    Id always play Ronaldo as a winger,but if i was playing him up front id play him as a complete forward.

    Nistelrooy a target man or even a poacher possibly.

    Higuain a Poacher and Benzema a Advanced forward.

    Alonso a deep lying playmaker or Defensive Midfielder.

    Lassana a anchor man.

    Cheers mate, will have a tinker this arv. The thing I was thinking though, is that Kenny only scored an average of one goal every three games or so. But his ability to dictate play from the front is what I want to replicate.

    Will still try out your recommendation though, and thanks again JP.

  48. Hi JP
    4-4-2 with United
    Anderson and Hamsik in the middle
    Anderson doesnt have the best shooting, so what should I do with him?
    Rooney and Berbatov up front aswell?
    Thanks

  49. i play chelsea and bought edin dzeko and jesus navas
    i play 4-2-4, 2 striker and 2 winger
    what role should i use ?

  50. Hey how about manchester united, 4-4-2.im trying to play as realistic as possible and i have yet to make a single signing (Although buying a new rightback with 80million to spare is tempting)

    i have rooney,owen and berbatov as main strikers and in center midfield i have carrick,hargreaves,fletcher,scholes,anderson.

    What should i play owen and berbatov as? I find that owen is an excellent off the ball player, one who makes good runs, but he is slow, and so is berbatov. Rooney plays well in poacher,deep lying forward, advanced forward so im not sure what to do with him.

    In center midfield i put 1 ball winning midfielder(Defend if im up against strong team) and one box-to-box midfielder. Please and thank you.
