  1. It wasnt just Rakitic, it also happened with Coutinho against Liverpool, Sergi Roberto playing super bad while Semedo was on the bench, Arthur also waiting to play (he is so bored that didn't even celebrate his first goal with the club). Right now Barcelona is a carreers-destroying machine, an hostile place for rising players, that is why I believe it is possible that this young players had to wait until they leave the club or the executives change to give the best of themselves.
  2. LoL I did not say that, the player is amazing. But do not undestimate the power of Valverde and actual FC Barcelona to destroy player's carrers (Coutinho, Dembelé...). I'm sure that he is going to improve but it may take long. We are traumatized with Valverde xD He may decide one more year that Rakitic deserves to play every single game and we may see De Jong playing 20 minutes per game because, as Valverde said, "He is a player for the future" (this about the winner of the prize to the best midfielder by UEFA). I know what you both want to say about the overreaction, but well, I think that there are pretty good reasons to believe that this FCB directives and coach are able to dely De Jong's progression for at least 1 or 2 years.
  3. Seems fine. Let's see how it works!
  4. Meh, it is risky, De Jong is not performing as good as expected, Rakitic is on the bench and Barcelona in a several decline. It may take long until Frenkie gets a serious increase in his rating and Rakitic will get 91-92 in his next update. Anyways if you are a patient person and rely on frenkie it may be a good long-run deal.
  5. Wow, his team is as strong as overrated xD Neymar, Ronaldo, Ramos and De Gea are nowadays overrated at least in 2 points, so he is really lucky but it will not last for too long (I hope). I think that there are 2 options, depending on how much do you rely on your squad and the style he chooses to play. I guess that he will see that he is stronger, so he will probably play some kind of attacking style. You should check his previous matchs to see if he always plays 4231. You can do it in the upper bar - competitions - league - roursults and check his matchs. If he is a 4231 abuser I would recomend you to play 451B, I have not played much games against stronger teams who played 4231, but both 451 A and B have worked well for me against that. But what will make the difference will be the passing style and tempo he uses. If he plays direct and fast tempo and you play deffensive-possesion you will crush him, he will crash over and over again against your defense to have to run behind the ball after that. But if he plays short passing and slow tempo the constant siege will probably result in 1 or 2 goals and only a few counter attacking chances for you, It is difficult. I guess that the best you can do is to check his previous matchs, and if he always plays 4231 direct-fast tempo you can play this: 451B, defensive, own half, soft tackling, mixed attacking, short passing, slow tempo, tight marking, men behind ball and verratti as playmaker. To be honest, you are a bit ed because you lost 2 of your best midfielders, so he does have better midfielders than you. Because of this, trying to hold the ball may be a bad idea since they could simply steal it because of their rating advantage, I'm not sure if this is going to happen. In this case, you may try to go for direct/long ball passing, normal tempo and counter attack. This way you will simply kick the ball out of your area and go for the lonely goal, but this will mean more possession for him, and more possession means more scoring chances. The other option is to be a pussy and play super defensive. Again this would work well against direct passing-fast tempo but bad against possession and siege. 532A, very defensive, own area, hard tackling, mixed attacking, long ball and the tempo you prefer. I have not played this many times so I'm not sure about what tempo is better. I just have a single game on my schedule playing this style, I chose normal tempo and the only shot on target was goal xD Logic says that if your intention is to go for a lonely goal in a counter attack the best choice is fast tempo, I don't imagine an slow counter attack, but to be honest I am unable to figure out how will it work because you may find a lot of shots but none on target. I guess that slow tempo is the best, less counter attacks but better "quality". Try what you prefer. After this, counter attack is 100% necessary and also men behind ball. If you check his games and see that he uses to play slow tempo and short passing you should use the first defensive tactic but with all over pressure and hard tackling to fight him the ball. It is pretty hard to decide what to play in this situation, but it is not impossible. I will be looking forward for that result xD GL
  6. Mason Mount must buy? 84 rating and has played 4 full games with Chelsea this season.
  7. I'm not experienced in playing super defensive, but the few times I've done I obtained very difFerent results but I don't know why. I don't know what is it good against, but I believe that it could be usefull against super ofensive teams that play fast tempo and attacking mentality because they try to shoot as quick as possible, miss a lot of balls and then you can counter attack. But according to my logic (which is not very reliable) playing super defensive should be a terrible idea if the rival plays a possesion style with low tempo because his team will not miss balls in a position that allows a counter attack and will constantly siege you, so the best result would be a draw. I'm not sure if it works this way but well, it makes sense.
  8. That team you describe is absolutely evil, but you can beat him. Against him I would simply play deffensive and try to have the ball to not to give him siege chances and deffend counter attacks. Trying to abuse his "weaker" player may be a good idea, but I believe that the key factor will be keeping him away from the ball as much as possible. If I were you with your also super strong team I would try to play something like this. 451B, hard tackling, short passing style, slow tempo, normal mentality, mixed attacking, own half pressure, men behind ball and your best midfielder as playmaker. I think that your team if you play with your best player should be able to fight him without playing defensive. If you want to play more defensive I think that you should play 451B or 541A, short passing style, normal tempo, defensive mentality, mixed attacking, all over pressure, soft tackling, tight marking, men behind ball and counter attack. His team is so strong that It is really hard to figure out what would work better against him. Since your lateral defenders are the weakest of your team and he plays down both flanks I think that playing agressive would be a bad idea. The only "sure" key I would dare to say is that you want to have the ball (your midfield and defense is good enough and you don't want him to siege you). He is stronger but not enough to force you to play on your own area and counter attacking. I've used the strategy of attacking down the flank where his worst player was just once, I won but I don't know if it was because of that or because of the general approach.
  9. Short passing = more possession, more presence of your defense and midfielders Direct passing = more balls to your forwards, so they will have more shots
  10. His team is really balanced, I think that the attacking 4231 I mentioned may work well if all your stars are avaible. Starting with the 4132 or any other such agressive tactic may be too risky, if he plays a defensive counter-attacking formation and you give up too many balls by playing too agressively he could defeat you. I don't know what would be better, but I definetly would start with a 4231 possessing offensive, I think it is safer.
  11. It depends on the power of his squad. If his you want to play 4231 you may try an agressive-possession style. Check that your player's stamina will be at least as high as your rival's for the match day, you played this game with all your best players. I think that best way to play 4231 against a weaker team is an attacking-possesion style. It only works when your defense and miedfield is at least as good as his. If his central defense is weak you may try a 4231A, attacking through the middle, short passing, slow tempo, hard tackling, all over pressure and attacking mentality. Tight marking, your mid attacking midfielder as playmaker and counter attack. If at 60 you were drawing or losing that would be probably because your midfield and defense is not better enough to control de ball, so I think that it may be a good idea to change for a more direct style to give the forwards more presence. I like risk so I would play a 4-1-3-2, through the middle, direct passing, attacking minded, hard tackling, normal or fast tempo, all over pressing. Tight marking, counter attack, offside trap maybe but it may be too greedy and the central attacking midfielder as playmaker. This is a pretty risky formation but if your forwards are wide better than his defenders it should work.
  12. I don't use to use arrows, but I guess that it has some impact. How did games go for you? Some of my tactics worked well but I failed super hard playing too agressive vs a weaker team and lost 2/1 against 4-4-2 unmanaged xD
  13. That squad is super strong. If you want to play down both flanks I recomend you to place Eriksen and Aubameyang on the sides and Son in the middle, both players can use both feet and that way your best players will be on the most relevant positions. At 45 if you want to change to mixed attacking and use a playmaker you can put back Eriksen in the middle and choose him. It may not make a big difference but it is important to assign your players in the way that fits better your tactic!
  14. Hi again! Assuming that the players of both teams had full stamina, the example fits perfectly what I said! Look at what Lille did. He saw that his team was super weaker than yours, so he decided to play a defensive formation (4231A), defensive playstyle, hard tackling to deny possession and fast tempo, so when he got the ball he took it away from his area as quick as possible to counter attack. He was smart and chose a good tactic! Also you did not play with all your best players, Godín, Cavani and Verratti were on the bench. If I were you I would have played an absolutly offensive tactic. Maybe 3-4-3, 4-2-4 or 3-3-4, offensive, direct/short passing, hard tackling, all over maybe with abuameyang as target man and eriksen as playmaker. Of course assuming that all your player had full stamina. Anyways remember that this game has a random component on the simulations, otherwise teams whose squads are not super strong would have 0 chance of winning better teams. For your next game, if you have all your players avaible, I suggest you to play a formation with 4 defenders and at least 1 deffensive midfielder. Literally all his power is in the attack lane with Agüero and Hazard, the rest of his team is wide worse than yours. Against such a team your objective is to stop his forwards and give the ball to yours, since your lead attackers have 93-94 ratings while his deffenders are 89-91. You also win in the midfield. A good formation would be a 4-2-3-1 A if you want to attack through the middle, 4-2-3-1 B if you want a mixed or down both flanks attacking or a 433 B. 4-2-3-1 places more people behind to stop Agüero and Hazard, 433B is a bit more ambitious, but it has more chances to end up in a result with a lot of goals of both teams. If he plays a defensive tactic and you use the 4231 its gonna be harder for you to score, but if he doesnt and goes for the attack you will probably crush him. Keep in mind that this is a weird case because he has a weak team with 2 overpowered forwards that force you to be especially careful with the counterattacks, it is not a situation that occurs frequently. Instructions vary depending on how greedy you are and how many risks you want to take, as formations do. Direct passing style and all over pressing seem to be the only indisputable options, the rest may vary. I would use hard tackling, attacking mentality and fast tempo if you want to go for the stomp, if you are more conservative and dont want to take so many risks you could try to use normal tackling, normal tempo and normal mentallity, your squad is better enough to rely on their victory without doing anything extreme. What I dont recomend you to do is to use a formation like a 3-4-3 or anything with less than 4 defenders, if his forwards werent so good you would not have to worry about counter attacks, but Agüero and Hazard are 95 rating. As third option if you believe in the strenght of your midfielders and defenders you can try to use a classic possession-attacking formation. This is not a bad idea cause it grants you a permanent siege of rival's area and more resistence to counter attacks in exchange of less shots on target and taking the risk of being over pressured if your backlane is not good enough to deal with his forwards. In this case his forwards are better, but you have a 94-93 defense which is not so below and your midfielders are stupidly better, so it may work. 4-2-3-1 B, 4-3-3 A or B are the most common formarions for this. You basically play short passing, normal-fast tempo, attacking mentality, all over pressuring, mixed-middle-down both flanks attacking and hard tackling, but i'm not sure if this is the best you can play against that team, I haven't tested enough. It is also good to prepare 1 substitution at the minute 45 or 60 in case you were losing. I use to prepare this substitution to counter the tactic that may counter my starting one, in case I was wrong in my analysis. In summary, what I would do is this (Again assuming that all your best players and rival's are avaible) 4231B or 433B Hard tackling = Direct passing = Fast tempo = All over pressure = Mixed/Down both flanks attacking Down both flanks probably Attacking mentality = Counter attacking = Offside Trap (effective vs counter attacks) = but I would not use target man or playmaker. Playmaker or Target man only on players that fit your attacking style (middle, down both flanks...) I dont use to use playmaker or target man when playing mixed attacking, but I'm not sure if it works or not. My substituion would be at minute 45 if losing or drawing, and in that case using the 4231B short passing, mixed attack, all over pressure, hard tackling, fast tempo, attacking mentality, central attacking midfielder as playmaker (Eriksen), tight marking and counter attack. Remember that I'm not an expert and I just can base what I say on my experience, which is far away from being perfect! I hope it helps you and have some regards!
