Hi!
I'm currently playing with FC Kobenhavn and I don't know what to select for my strikers to have maximum efficiency(Trequarista, Target man, Advanced Forward etc. ).I use mainly the couple Rogelio Funes Mori and Nolan Roux, and the reserves are Cedric Bakambu and Erick Torres. If you used them at your teams please help me to set them right. Thank you!
I like to have 1 as an advanced forward who will chase down balls and put pressure on the defenders when they're in possession. You can compliment the advanced forward with any of the other striker roles really preferably one that plays a little bit lower on the field and will drop into the hole, I suggest picking one that best suits the players you have, personally I almost always use a complete forward on support duty.
well another tip would be not to have both on attack unless midfield is 75% support, otherwise the two strikers end up not supporting each other
I've had tremendous success out of a 442 with one striker as a poacher and the other as a trequart. As barmy mentioned, however, make sure you have support from your midfield to help initiate attacks. Otherwise your strikers may not do enough on their own. With my tactic, I have one of my center mids set to an advanced midfielder (A) and two wide midfielders set to S or A, depending on situation.
Hi guys.

So, are you saying that if I have an advanced playmaker with attacking role, then he won't support the forwards?!?

Do I have to play him as advanced playmaker with support role?!?

I guess your players are not top strikers but you can use one deep lying forward who will be less attacking in mentality and supportive with height heading strength to make your play and stop the opposition team to orchestrate their attacks and the fast striker will be the one who will get the assists to score

In my opinion, an advanced playmaker will support your forwards regardless.

If you play him in a support role, he will look to lay the ball off more to the forwards and take more long range shots. If you play him in an attack role, he will look to dribble into the box more. He will still lay the ball off to the forwards, but he will be closer to the box in general.

I like having my advanced playmaker in an attack role because that gives you three bodies attacking from the center of the pitch.
