Here is a little project that is a simple Plug & play Tactic. Attached you will find 2 Tactics. One called TBH SPLIT 433 MR version and this is the one described in the post. The other one is called "ML" version and is the mirror of the first one. If you use the "Mirrored", then the flow and the roles will be the other way around
You dont "switch" between the tactics other than to suit your actuall squad and the settings are exactly
Dont use them. As most of the settings have been tweaked, the shouts and chnage of strategy will either have no effect or will only effect half of whats intended, meaning that the tactic will be disrupted.
Here, the buildup consists in a WBleft and a DMCleft and an advanced Forward that comes deep to link up with play and the Central FC sitting deeper " in the hole". As the DMC plays a more direct game, he often put balls into channels down the flanks for our FCleft and our Wingback.
Here, we have a holding MC that plays t-balls into channels down the flanks onto our Winger providing width. The FCright is playing as an advanced FC with the support of an deeper FCcenter that is dragging one of the Central Defenders out of position The fullback is one that stays back and acts both cover and an easy passing option for the MC and the winger
Both sides put together
By using this split formation, we give ourselves the opportunity to have many dimension in our build up. We can play a direct ball onto our FCs, we can play a possession based approach and drag the opponents on to us by using triangles in midfield. We have the width with our MR and left Wingback . We have crosses from both left and right and we have people taking runs from both the left, right and the center
If the opponents sit deep, the right side is more likely to be able to drag the opponent onto us and if they play aggressive and push up, then the left side can easily retain possession in an advanced position whilst still having cover by the DMC if losing the ball.
Naturally, the flow of the game will depend on the quality and preferred moves of your players but regardless of opponent, it gives you the chance to dominate the area of the pitch where you beat them in quality using this multi dimension approach.
In short, it’s a good approach if wanting to stretch the opponent sideways and be able to overload every area of the field
I tend to use Defensive positioning when playing counter attack( as in this tactic)
but if the opponents have scored many goals from corners, or If I see our best
chance from these, I go with Set Pieces ( defensive,
Have not been touched. Here, you will have to set them up to suit your players
It would highly depend on the players but the
stats posted in the OP are those that I find important for the roles. Along with
those, I use the Standard setup.
TRAINING YOUNG PLAYERS WITH POTENTIAL
Here, its all about making the best out of the player as well as fiting him into your team. After all, it does not matter how bnig his potential is and how well he trains if he does not get any matches due to not being the correct playertype
- Look at the player at a young age to evaluate if he could be used in a different position instead. Here, I only look at the stats, not ppms. If it looks like he is on the right patch, we keep this in mind to
- Train the player in an individuall schedule like Mid, winger, advanced FC etc to get him more complete in the basics on being a Defender, Mid or attacker
- Then, if he keeps developing and are ready for the first team/ some subs, I consider re-training him in a different position
- Then, after this is done and he is ready for more action, I play him in his (new)position and train him in a specialaist role
- Then, I look at what ppms that can make him use his strengths even better whilst still being good for the tactic
- Then, I let him train a specific stat. Either one that is undermining his ability or one where he has the chnace to get it up to between 19-20
GETTING MANY CARDS ?
If you see that a player with a yellow card has been playing poorly and getting out of his defensive position, then tell him to be mire careful in the 2nd half. If you see a player un the verge of getting his 2nd yellow, then dont be afraid to sub him, especially if he is " aggressive or frustrated" . As for red cards, always tell them in the team talk that you did not like it and fine him with 1 weeks pay. This is a pretty good way of stopping a floodgate scenario.
I have NOT used any at all....but..
...in the past, I have mainly used these, regardless of tactic
Single FC without AMC support – Close Down/Always
Nervous and Anxious Players – Hard Tackling, Show into weak foot
Elegant DLPlaymaker – Tight Mark, Close Down and Weaker Foot
PLAYING WITH 10 MEN
Here, we sub the FCleft and put the new player into the position of the player sent off. We put the FCright into the FCcenter spot and we Drop the FCcenter onto the AMcleft position, just like in the screen
Below, you see the description of the players along with some screens of the
recommended stats. Whilst these players are not set exactly to these roles, its
the closest in stats I can come when loading up screenshots. So look in the
description to see what kind of player to use and look in the screens for
The Balanced and determined squad
You don't need quality players to use this approach. What you do need is a balanced squad.
Enough players that have the stamina to use this high press system, players with
team and work rate, some quick players, enough " tall" players so you avoid
conceding too many set pieces etc etc. All in all, a TEAM, not just a group of
players. As in all Teams, you need players that want to win, players that are up
for the challenge and can pull themselves together when the going gets tough and
players that can handle the pressure of suddenly being a favorite. If you
combine all this, then you can win the Champions League with players of a much
lesser "quality" and " rating" then Barca etc. Naturally you can still get good
results without these traits but to win the CL, its crucial
If anyone has some players that have been working superbly in any of these"roles", please tell me and I will make a list in the Opening post under every position
In his settings, he will act like a Advanced FC. If he likes to move into channels and play one-twos, then the latter will bring one more dimension to the flow. When playing with underdogs and are more likely to launch quick counter attacks, an quick goalscorer is best used but when playing middle teams and top teams, then a more complete player that likes to link up with play is better used.
PPMs: Comes deep to get ball, Plays one-twos, Moves into channels
Here, we have a Deeplying Supporting FC. If you have a Trequartista, this is where he plays
Advanced FC. If he likes to move into channels and play one-twos, then the latter will bring one more dimension to the flow.
PPMs: Plays one-twos, Moves into channels
Here we have the classic English Winger. He hugs the touchline and makes crosses as qwell as getting into the area when the ball is on the other flank. As we play a rather fluid approach, a player like Seb Larsson, Milner etc is better used than Nasri. In short, a B2B winger
PPMS: Runs with ball down flank, knock ball past opponent, arrives late inside the area.
This player acts like a Deep Lying Playmaker on support and the more complete he is in his role, being able to use his flair and creativity as well as breaking up attacks, the better it is.
PPMS: Try killer balls, comes deep to get the ball, dictates tempo
As written earlier, he is a more complete DMC/MC, like a box2box starting from the DMC position. He needs to be able to cover large areas running up and down the field so stamina is a must. Otherwise, you will see him having 60 % condition before the game is at end
PPMS: Nothing special. Just make sure he IS NOT acting like a DPL, NOT having dwells on ball, dictates tempo etc.
This player is set to be really defensive so he should NOT have attacking PPMs. As he holds up the ball, he needs good decision and concentration
PPMS: Nothing special
The more attacking fullback. He needs to be able to beat his man and make a cross, as well as get back into position after losing out in possession
PPMS: Runs down the left flank, switches flank, knocks ball past opponent
Here, its all about getting as good defenders as possible
PPMS: Nothing special
