Hey, I would be extremely grateful if someone could help me with my tactic. The aim is to patiently pass the ball around retaining possession until the opportunity for a through ball opens up. Space is supposed to be created by the striker and the two attacking midfielders which are free to roam and move into channels.

There are several issues I am encountering which I don't know how to overcome:

- My analyst always tells me that we are not holding onto possession well in the final third and in some games we do have very little possession despite the entire system being set up to have high possession.

- don't score nearly as much as I would like us to (even though all three "strikers" have 16+ finishing and do get some pretty good shot opportunities. Some games we have lots of possession, lots of shots and lots of them on target, still we don't seem to score a lot.

- We concede WAY too many goals. Usually balls over the top of my defense (tried variations with no offside trap and a covering defender (who is very fast and has great anticipation and marking etc) but we still concede a lot. We also concede a lot from set pieces even though my defenders are, on average, the tallest in the league.

Here is the tactic:

I can gladly post some more screenshots of different aspects if that helps.

Thanks a lot already!
