  1. Just finished my Leipzig season.🤪 Results:
  2. Thanks for the long response! I really appreciate that! To answer the questions/comments. The Surprise / the good: I have chosen for a lot of football from the last line. You therefore see the BPDs emerging and combining with the IWBs. The SK is purely because it passes more and has the intention to close down the space if the BPDs are too high up. The APs are looking for the space between attack and defense. The gap that this leaves free in midfield is closed by the IWBs and DLP. The DLP is a very important link between all lines. This player gets a lot of passes. Weakness: - Yes it is true that Kane is the absolute star. You need a good complete striker to make the tactic work. He is the goalscorer, although the APs also take their goals. In my Leizpig save it actually goes even better. Sorloth and Poulsen are doing great and you can rotate. And those aren't really superstars. You'll need a combination between a target man and poacher. Maybe the AF role will also work, but i think the CF is more creative. - Yes, it is correct that it is not a tactic for small teams. You need quality. And the right players to make it work. Otherwise you won't score that one goal or two to win the game. Other Questions: - Lloris is doing fine. Not the ideal option, but I had no reason to change it. Ideally, you use a faster keeper. - The BPDs behave mainly like CDs. However, I do use BPD as a role because they come up more and give more risky passes. - Yes the APs sometimes go into the same space. I tried to use 1 as CM as well. This was less effective anyway because I really want them both to attack a lot. Perhaps a Dynamic midfielder will also work with AP quality (like Wijnaldum). But I've had no reason to change it. - The high line and closing down work well in this case because the DWs put pressure on the opponent's backs earlier. It does indeed pose some risks. When I have a lead in the second half, I often bring it back and I play on a control mentality. I hope it made some sense haha.
  3. Thank you for your detailed response! I'm not sure why it doesn't work for you.. There are, however, some good results. I think it's a matter of having the right players. It's quite a contrast to my Leipzig save after 7 games for example..:
  4. At first I think the midfield is quite weak.. that's where creativity has to come from. But maybe they are well developed? And how are the relationships between them? And is that Maxwell Cornet retrained as a left back? If yes. then I would really use more real fullbacks. In addition, it is nice if the backs have something of a cm.
  5. Most goals come from crosses from the wingers but mostly through passes from midfield (Lo Celso in Spurs save). Corners remarkably few. But that's also because I didn't do anything to the corner setup this time, its on default.
  6. Hmm.. lot of draws. Can i see your team?
  7. Yes, if you have been using the same tactics for a long time, it may take some getting used to a different system. Let me know when things get better!
  8. Quick test RB Leipzig. They really have a great squad for this tactic.
  9. Hi! I wish I had shared this tactic much earlier. But I've had very little time to test the tactics for an entire season. Our second child was born this year, so you probably understand.. ;-) Back to business. Don't use this tactic if you're looking for goals. No, in fact this tactic literally kills matches. Usually you win with one goal difference, but on the other hand you hardly concede any goals. In fact, your opponent hardly gets any chances. Defensively, this is the strongest tactic I've made. Philosophy: My goal was to create a very solid tactic that would work against both small and large opponents. Nice if you win 6-0 against a small team, but then if you lose 1-0 against a big club it is of no use. So the system had to be rock solid, but at the same time strong enough to win matches. Furthermore, I did not want to make any transfers in the first season to see to what extent this philosophy was applicable to the available players. My only requirement was a complete striker, so I ended up with the Spurs. For the best possible development, you train the players in the desired position. The formation: Instructions: Results: Still furious about this one loss... I hope you guys like this one!
  10. Sorry, but without results it's meaningless. You also use a top team, with Messi..
  11. Seems like a fun tactic! What attributes do you recommend for the WM role? Like (defensive) wingers, wingbacks of more like central midfielders?
  12. Nice tactic. I think when you remove the AF (only 1 Striker ->PF) and use an extra CM instead this tactic can be very good. Then you also have enough power in the midfield so that the IWBs can just become Wingbacks with overlap.
  13. I also made a similar tactic in the previous edition with pressing forwards on the flanks: This turned out to be very effective. My experience is that you can easily convert good attacking wingbacks into pressing forwards on the flanks.
  14. Awesome. Better for smaller teams i guess?
