    Post your lineups and tactics here

    Important notes: Pay attention to how you the formation you choose lines up. For example: 4-2-3-1 has wings as LAM and RAM not LM/LW and RM/RW so has different instruction options than 4-2-3-1 (2) or any 4-3-3.

    Also, the tactics have changed so make sure to read the options I list.


    Link to the Season thread:

    For each player you can give instructions (All of these also have a default that is a mix of the options unless I note something is default) anything not specified will be left at default, or whatever the team has it set to

    ST/CF/LF/RF: Support Runs (Drift Wide, Stay Central), Attacking Runs (Get In Behind, Target Man, False 9), Interceptions (Aggressive, Normal, Conservative), Defensive Support (Come Back, Stay Forward)

    LW/RW: Defensive Support (Come Back On D, Stay Forward), Chance Creation (Cut Inside, Stay Wide, Free Roam), Support Runs (Get In Behind, Come Short, Target Man), Support On Crosses (Get Into Box, Stay On Edge of Box), Interceptions (Agressive, Normal, Conservative)

    LM/RM: Defensive Support (Come Back On D, Stay Forward), Chance Creation (Cut Inside, Stay Wide, Free Roam), Support Runs (Get In Behind, Come Short, Target Man), Support On Crosses (Get Into Box, Stay On Edge of Box), Interceptions (Agressive, Normal, Conservative)

    CAM/LAM/RAM: Defensive Support (Come Back On D, Stay Forward), Support on Crosses (Get Into The Box, Stay on Edge of Box), Positioning Freedom (Stick To Position which is default, Free Roam, Drift Wide), Interceptions (Agressive, Normal, Conservative)

    CM: Attacking Support (Stay Back, Get Forward, Drop Between Defenders), Support on Crosses (Get Into The Box, Stay on Edge of Box), Positioning Freedom (Stick To Position which is default, Free Roam), Interceptions (Agressive, Normal, Conservative), Defensive Position (Cover Center, Cover Wing which is default)

    DM: Defensive Behavior (Cut Passing Lanes, Man Mark), Attacking Support (Stay Back, Get Forward, Drop Between Defenders), Interceptions (Agressive, Normal, Conservative), Defensive Position (Cover Center, Cover Wing which is default)

    CB: Attacking Support (Stay Back which is default, Join Attack, Play As Striker), Interceptions (Agressive, Normal, Conservative)

    LB/RB/LWB/RWB: Attacking Runs (Join The Attack, Stay Back), Interceptions (Agressive, Normal, Conservative), Run Type (Inverted, Overlap)

    Roles you must choose someone for each:
    Captain
    Left Short FK
    Right Short FK
    Long FK
    Penalties
    Left Corner
    Right Corner

    Tactics:
    Defending
    Style: Balanced, Pressure on heavy touch, Press after possession loss, Constant pressure, Drop back

    Width: 1-10

    Depth: 1-10 (1-3 your team shape is more dropping deep, 4-7 more balanced, 8-10 high for more of a pressing team shape)

    Offense

    Style: Balanced, Long ball, Fast build up, Possession

    Width: 1-10

    Players in box: 1-10 (1-3 you will have less players in box in crossing situations, 4-7 some, 8-10 lots)

    They have 5 settings for all of those (Ultra Defensive, Defensive, Balanced, Attacking, Ultra Attacking). I won’t have any way to know if it’s using anything but balanced, I’ll assume not and that’s just for when you’re actually playing so I’ll plan to enter what you put as the Balanced/standard setup. If someone wants to send multiple I’m willing to do all 5 if you want

    Every year a group of guys from TSB does a fantasy draft based on real life to make teams. Ranges from 18-22 teams typically.

    After we draft full 23 man rosters for then guys post here what formation and tactics they want and I run a season in FIFA to see how it turns out

    Yes. No one has to actually have the game besides me, matches aren’t actually played. All simmed.

    The rules though are that the first 11 rounds has to be your starting XI and you have to draft 2 players each from Bundesliga, EPL, Serie A, LaLiga and then 2 from any other leagues. Last spot can be a 3rd from any of the above

    Also to everyone, when I like your post that means I’ve got your tactics in so don’t make changes to it after that; make a new post.

    You can make the post now with lineup and edit to include who you want on the bench before I like it.

    Your bench doesn’t have to be in the order you draft it either. Must include a GK on the bench.

    while my formation being the same as Popovio's is merely coincidental, I'm shamelessly stealing his usage of a grunge flag. Instructions to follow as I do more mental work, but lineup below:

    skrouse yeah unless something is noted as default (Stay back for CBs, Cover wing for DMs, etc) then there is a default option that is a mix. I golfed that towards the top of OP
