Worked for the Turkish Super League with Galatasaray for many seasons.
Had to play more balanced and sometimes cautious for the first couple of seasons in European competitions.
The most critical position is the Ball Winning Midfielder - Defensive as these are rare kinds.
Personal attributes will decide on the special player assignments.
For support / attack combinations on the wings, try to change the mentalities for wing back and inside forwards from time to time.
When 1 man down, take the AP out and play a balanced mentality, most of the time that works.
