If you're struggling to choose what role or duty best suites certain players then ask in here:

So for example,if your not sure whether you should play Messi as a winger or a inside forward,or with an attacking or support role then put your queries here:

Example:

Javi Martinez and Vagner Love please?
Answer:

Martinez - Central Midfield - Support/Defend
Love - Advanced Forward - Attak or Poacher - Attack

On the squad page, if you set view to Assistant Reports it says what each player's strongest position, role and duty is :)

It's pretty difficult with Barcelona, though. Every midfielder should be Advanced Playmaker. This is a nuisance.

Well a feature that I have come to love in FM 12 is the new scout reports. They tell me Lampard is best as DLP - Support. I edited the options giving him more forward runs, not to hold the ball up (my BWM does that), less through balls and more long shots. Yet my Lampsy ain't banging em in like real life. I'm struggling getting the best out of Mereiles as well. Sometimes his morale just drops for no reason, he is unhappy on the pitch. Lampard obviously is more professional and isn't like that. Anyone know how to get my Lampsy owning?

I would not play Lampard as a DLP tbh. I'd say he is more like a B2B or Adv Playmaker.

This AI advice is helpful but it also makes mistakes. Use your own judgment. I doubt any Chelsea fan would describe Lampard as a deep-lying playmaker. If you play him as CM,try Central midfielder - attack or box-to-box midfielder roles.
Players' morale is a tricky thing. Some need encouragement, some need to be Perhaps Meirelles needs some encouragement; you might give him the 'You have faith in his ability' option as an individual pre-game team talk prior to the match.

Robin Van Persie please?
Don't know if this applies for FM2012 but in 2011 i played him as a complete forward, didn't score too many but the amount of assists he got was insane. Play him like that with wingers/Attacking Mids and they'll score plenty.
