Im hoping to create a possession tactic. I use the following tactic as an attacking one, and I tweak a few things depending on the opposition, but my base tactic is as follows.

View attachment 370328View attachment 370329

It is generally very successful at home, and away against most teams. But, few questions:

can anyone suggest some simple away game tweaks?

Am I doing it wrong? Since there are few tooltips or help in game, I have no idea if some of my instructions are contradictory, or just flat out wrong for my desired style. So im looking for any basic tips on my tactic.

Should I be shooting for 65% possession? Is possession an effective tactic even in FM. Does it tire out opposition players like it should? Frustrate them? What impact does playing with the ball 65% of the time have on the opposition team. What about my own team?

Also, ignore the team selection, the shot was taken after a Europa League match, so its my B team.

It looks like your doing the corrct things for possession and plus in this years edition it is really hard to have a high possession.:)
