Not sure if my central defenders are good enough to run the offside trap but ill keep that in mind thanks. I'll take off pressing, i definitely think it tires them out but also opens up the team to be ripped apart by passing teams. Also when I attacking 442 i mean with two wingers playing up in the attacking midfield area as inside fowards. I almost always am in balanced mentality unless im down a goal (happening often now lol) Ill try commited tackling thanks.
I recently started a career in the Premier League as Sunderland. It's been going pretty decent so far, but now in the latter half of the season I'm coming up against a lot of teams who counter attack. While I've gotten some results, teams at or below my level with counter attack on are ripping me apart. Any tips to slow them down? I'm currently running a 4-4-2 attacking with only pressing on.
