Hopefully they work out for you! I did a lot of customized settings in FM09, but with the addition of specific roles in FM10 I started using them almost exclusively. After playing around with different combinations I've found the player roles to be even more effective than my old settings.
Regarding the MCa - yes, having him play an advanced playmaker role tends to have him get forward a lot.
Regarding the target man - yes. Give him a target man role but don't set a target man in your team instructions.
I have tried your suggestions and it worked like a charm
(oh i forgot to mention that I am playing FM09 so I looked up the instructions on the TT&F wizard)
my ST scored 1 goal in 4 matches, while my MCA scored 3 goals in 4 matches (with 2 of those goals coming in 1 match)
my ST has become more of a poacher in the box, I don't think he will score lots of goals like what Adebayor does for you, but I think my MCA will perform in that capacity.
and thanks to your suggestions I have been inspired to adapt a more creative instructions in other positions, employed my DM as a deep-lying playmaker (I have Veloso.... why not take advantage) in 2 matches he scored a goal and created an assist.... I also made my wingers have free role.... so they are acting as goal-scoring wingers, getting into space and adding some threat.
who says that a tactic is perfect???? every little tweaking helps
currently in Serie A I lie in first place, with 62 goals scored and 11 goals conceded.
I have a question, what training do you use? I often find my players losing some skills even if their training is intensive and my younger players stats are not increasing in enough quantity.... any suggestions?
