Hey guys..

So i am trying to make a tactic.. Its a 4-2-3-1 (Dm's or mc's havent decided yet) Fluid philosophy and Counter strategy. By own experiences i make more CCC's than when i play ridgid or balanced, but i also seem to conceede more.

Q1: Is there any way i can make my team more defensive solid and still play fluid philosophy?

I am also trying to make a very balanced tactic, so i am thinking of implenting the Destroyer-Passer-Creator combination into the tactic.

Q2: The creator for me would obviously be the AMC and an Advanced Playmaker but what about the dm's/cm's?

I like to pressure the ball holder when he enters my own half to launch get hold on the ball quicker and launch more counter attacks.

Q3: How do i make my players pressure the ball holder when they enters my own half?

Last but not least the 2 cbs...

Q4: What do you think of the Stopper/Cover combination? and what roles are best suited for a Counter tactic?

Any help is highly appreciated and thanks for reading.

Best regards
