I've been reading about gegenpressing & this is my attempt at that high defensive line, high pressing tactic.
Mentality - Attacking
Team Shape - Highly Structured
*More Direct Passing
*Shoot On Sight
*Be More Expressive
*Roam From Positions
*Much Higher Defensive Line
*Close Down Much More
So far, working pretty well with Portsmouth in League Two however I've found that my team may score a few goals but I'm also conceded a few as well, kinda like a Kevin Keegan tactic (gonna score more than the other team).
The roles & individual player instructions:
GK - Defend - Pass it Shorter
DR - Wing Back - Attack - Run Wide With Ball - Stay Wider
DCR - Defend
DCL - Defend
DL - Wing Back - Attack - Run Wide With Ball - Stay Wider
MCR - Advanced Playmaker - Support
MCL - Ball Winning Midfielder
AMR - Raumdeuter - Close Down More
AMC - Attacking Midfielder - Attack
AML - Winger - Support
STC - Defensive Forward - Defend
You could probably switch the Raumdeuter to either AMR or AML depending on which is your strongest side / best player to fit that role.
Let me know what you think & any improvements are welcome.
