    CDM's always roam forward despite what instructions you have on. It's been a problem for ages and it's down to poor programming.

    Just noticed the same in online drafts everything was fine until i got to the final then all of a sudden there massive gaps being left in my defence as my full backs wanted to be strikers.

    Some people use CDMs with high Attack Positoning in-game stat which makes them roam forward even with instructions saying stay back

    It depends on a few things like work rates custom tactics and dpad settings. You can watch sokkers videos in his guide and see you can set them so they stay back.

    One great addition for next year would be workrates and instructions to work.

    For example, Medel is low attacking and high defending. If I put him on "stay back while attacking", he should never enter the attacking 3rd unless I'm on ultra attacking or all out attack. Should be simple.

    This type of thing could be massively abused by sad individuals though

    It could. Maybe they could only make "stay back while attacking" available for CDM roles. Much like "stay forward" or "come back on defense" is only available for LW, RW and CAM.

    exactly, 532 would be preferred formation, all positions "stay back while attacking" except strikers :D

    Use stay back while attacking as default and then just tap LB or one-two to rush a fullback forward when needed to.

    You might have shooting in chance creation set very high with low speed in build up play.

    This and also speed in build up play to a high number otherwise your fullbacks and CDM's will take good attacking positions in slow build up but leave your defence exposed. Quick attacks jinx's the fullbacks as they don't get time to run forward and provide support.

    Stop setting shooting custom tactics so high.

    Cdms rush towards the box as another potential shooter as the tactic is increased.

    Did you think your forwards would just "try harder" to get into shooting positions?

    Has to come from somewhere

    Try and ensure the workrates are what you're trying to achieve with stay back. EG Coleman is H/H so yes he gets forward but he gets back better than Walker. H/H's are better than H/M's for full backs. If that doesn't work for your full backs balance your midfield. Try and have one of them at least to have M/H. My midfield 3 are 2 x H/H and one H/M when things are good but if I start to struggle I bring in Kante as he is M/H so end up with one of each and it's much more balanced.

    Custom tactics are important but only if you assess your own team and the way you play. No point using pro players ct's as they aren't going to suit.

    If you have a lot of agile players with good dribbling etc then fast build up play is better but if you have bigger clunkier players with worse control then that's not going to be ideal.

    It's a mix of custom tactics and player instructions

    I have them on stay back, low shooting value in CT and organized attack. Like that they stick to their position and don't go too much up to look for a shooting opportunity

    have people ever think that "stay back while attacking" means they stay back when you are attacking on d-pad.
    most people are on defensive and then your player are not following instructions.
