this is what you need to work on the most in a possession tactic playing the ball in your opponents half...
set players to run from deep often to encourage movement and opening up space, increase freedom a bit to allow players to play a bit more creatively and looking to get the ball forward instead of holding it up and playing it backwards..
through balls/roaming/attacking mentality are all parts of this formation also plays a big part
I don't really have what you would call "a problem" in fact this formation is very successful, won everything with liverpool twice in 5 years, just restarted since i had forgotten the lfc marshall update and badly wanted joe allen updated.

This is what I am using this time around as well. I actually want to have more passes than I normally do (400 max)
and it was 500 max in the previous save.. Any ideas on how to get more passes and instead of "knocking the ball forward by taking 5 billion touches since nobody is closing down" get my players to take just a few seconds (instead of 10) and then pass the ball to another person. It isn't their job to play the killer ball, so why are they taking so much time? they should just lay it off.
