I use barca with 3 strikers (eto'o at CF, henry & messi attack from left & right) just like in the real life (4-1-2-2-1). But things just won't work like the real life heh...
henry (high creativity, always on forward run & run with ball, crossing & long shot rarely, through ball mixed) but he seems afraid to run through the penalty box, always long shots from outside penalty box. messi ( with the same setting, but with free role) a bit better (cut into penalty box either shoot or pass) and sometimes do long shot from outside. etoo (forward run & run with ball always, others rarely except through ball on mixed, high creativity) a bit invisible (rare goals) even i set run unto ball setting for target man.
xavi (forward run, run with ball, through pass always, long shot & crossing mixed, with free role ticked with high creativity) is always wander around, but most of his assist came from dead balls.
Team instruction : passing is short & normal tempo, deep defensive line, normal wide & use playmaker (xavi).
Any idea how to make it work the best of this? like messi & henry storming from both flanks, etoo creates spaces for through ball from xavi or from both flanks or release henry & messi with his pass or just show some trick and shoot for a goal.
Kind of lost my touch, since i just play FM'09 recently after 1 or 2 years of hiatus.
I guess I asked too much :D, but thanks anyway
