The Ultimate Club Team Make-Up Just doing some thinking about club matches, and what kind of team would be "perfect" for online matches. 4-1-2-1-2 - Four defenders pushed all the way back. - Defensive minded midfielder who's job is to control the middle of the pitch and link up with the attacking players. He needs to not be too aggressive and be the first defense against a counter attack pushing up the middle. - Two central midfielders who push down the sides of the pitch looking to either hit the CAM in the middle of the field or cross into the strikers. - A Central Attacking Midfielder looking to fire from range or pass into the strikers in traffic. He plays just behind the two strikers while also covering the keepers left handed post. - Targetman Striker. A larger, stronger striker who's job it is to plant in front of the goal and be a target for crosses and other passes - volleying in goals or heading them in. - Speedy, Counter Attacking Striker - A smaller, quicker striker who uses his pace to find openings on the pitch and force the issue. He would play slightly behind the targetman and shade toward keepers right hand side. Again just thinking out loud, but i bet if we tailor some of our players to these roles going into a match we might do better. One of the cool things about the virtual pro is you can change their vitals as often as you like. So if you're going to be the speedy striker, you can lower the weight and height of your pro - changing his acceleration, speed, strength and other attributes. When you are done you can change him back.
