Due to popular demand I’ve decided to post the tactic that I used on my previous save.
Roles chosen, Mentality, Width, Tempo and Creativity.
I’ll tell why I chose the roles amd example of players that suits the roles.
G: could try to use SK to but I’m going for a little bit less risk here. e.g. Onana, de Gea, Oblak
CD: the classic defender we all used. Also another reason of less risk. e.g. Acerbi, Romagnoli, Bastoni
S: I actually rarely use this one but I’ve seen that they seems to get higher rating and also conceded less goals than CD-CD partnership. The attributes seems like positioning and pace are more important than tackling. e.g. Konate, Akanji, Gomez
IWB: I have to cover the void left by the BBM so this guys does the right job. Must’ve midfield like attribute. e.g. Trent Arnold, Davies, Hakimi
BBM: due to the striker were Isolated, I need players to cover him at the back or at least outside of the box. BBM will hid the striker’s flaws. e.g. Brozovic, Goretzka, McTominay
AP: The main source of creativity on our team. They’ll get out of man marks and feed either the winger or the striker. The most important players on our team. Balanced attack and defence attributes recommended. e.g. Pellegrini, van de Beek, Zaniolo
W: no explanation needed. The most overpowered role in FMM imo. The main feeder of the striker. e.g. Gonzalo Martinez, Kluivert, Under
TM: Hard choice. Tried P but they isolated to much and caught offside a lot. Tried AF to but they seems to need someone at either AML/AMC/AMR to build up the attack or they’ll go out of position. A complete forward would do the best. e.g. Schick, Fullkrug, Ronaldo
Thanks to @Scratch’s test that shown WBs and IWBs being less attacking and took less crosses with the Defensive mentality. Which gave advantage for the Wingers to do their job.
Not much special as I’m not really wise in defending so I just use a setup that most people did.
Work Into the box to prevent the BBM to steal that much goals. Run at defence is to prevent the through ball. They seems to kick so hard for the striker to even catch the ball so we have to prevent them.
short so that we control the game to have more possessions and create more chance.
mixed focus to give the opponents no chance to easily read our game and counter it.
mixed GK distribution is to make sure the GK wouldn’t need to get blame for our mistake.
This one is from one of my career:
