How do your set your Defensive roles and line?

  1. How do your set your Defensive roles and line?

    Hello fellas, I'm playing Chelsea 4-2-3-1

    Scoring alot of goals, but also conceding alot of goals.

    Currently playing with a Ball winning midfielder on the midfield and a DLP

    My back line is

    Alaba - Wing back Att
    Luiz - Limited defender - Defend
    Cheillini Ball playing defender - Defend
    Ivanovic - Fullback - Support


    How do you set your 4 back line up? and do you also concede alot of goals in FM13?

    Haven't really have a very low conceding rate yet on FM 13

  2. I play 4-2-3-1 with Arsenal, won the league with most goals scored AND least conceded

    However near the end of the season I started conceding alot, might be because of tactical changes, but I'll have to wait and see,

    Anyway, I set my defense up (Both before and after the changes) like this:

    Gibbs - WB - (Automatic)
    Vermaelen/Koscielny - CD - Defend
    Koscielny/Mertesacker - CD - Defend
    Sagna - Full Back - Defend

    Gustavo - Anchor Man - Defend


    It depends on how you play, if you play with the offside trap then you'd be best setting all the defenders to the same role. I play with a high line, but not playing the offside trap and with counter attacking, so I sometimes switch Vermaelen/Koscielny's role depending on the opponents

  3. Very nice, Do you play a fast tempo? - Also are you playing the two midfielders in front as DM'S? and not CM'S?

  4. you're choosing attacking over defending with your full backs. set alaba to support and ivanovic to defend (mediocre attacking stats i.e 9 crossing 7 dribbling 7 long shots and 6 flair) and ivanovic is a wall. get back to me if it work or not

    I switch between the two, against better teams I play Gustavo/Fellaini as a DM with Wilshere/Arteta as a CM, but most of the time I use 2 CMs with 1 of them being a BWM

    And I play a tempo bang in the middle of the slider!
