im playing with southampton, about to start pre season for 2nd season, ive got quite alot of good players, so im going for a:
float (i find it alot better)
im going to leave the d-line and tempo either how they are, or have both of them on 1 up from normal, so the very first slide across onto push up and quick.
time wasting rarely.
im still stuck on the width and where to focus passing, i dunno wether to have it narrow and through the middle or wide and down the flanks? :S
im not sure about counter attack.
probaly no playmaker.
probaly target man striker (mixed)
leave all player insructions standard apart from all long shots rarely and BPD through balls sometimes.
ok thanks mate, so what roles would you advise for the 2 CMs?You have 2 wingbacks, 2 advanced wingers/inside forwards and 2 CMs (attack and support), so probs best to leave focus passing as Mixed and I wouldn't bother about Counter Attack as you have a fluid/control style with shorter passing.
Also, the wider you set the team up, the better (generally speaking) individual player's technique and passing skills need to be with the short passing and high(ish) tempo game you have set. Leave the width roughly equal to tempo if you aren't confident in your team's passing & technique, increase width if you are (just as a rough guide).
That kind of depends on who your players are, and the overall balance (and, as Mike puts it, Philosophy) of your team, unless you are going to buy in players to fulfill specific roles to balance out your philosophy.ok thanks mate, so what roles would you advise for the 2 CMs?
