Slow defenders vs fast attackers

Post  Peromano on Sun Oct 12, 2008 12:09 pm

I find it difficult to stop fast attackers like Torres and Villa when they get a breakthrough pass between the full back and the CB or above them. The strikers can run past them and get a 1v1 against the goalie. How is the best way to defend against it? Any ideas?

I know it's important to keep the four defenders on a straight line for as long as possible. I think it's smart to slowly run backwards when they're counter attacking instead of meeting them.

When talking about defense there are some players who's nazi on the circle button. Desperately pressing circle seldom works well. The only way it works is if you control the defender and you're ready for passes (with L2) and the midfielder is meeting the opposite player. One to snatch up passes, one to meet.

Well to be honest, I don't usually play be a pro defenders, but when i play online with a friend of mine on my team, we generally don't have the problem (once or twice though).
I think I play a deep defense sometimes that allows them to come at you, and then you steady yourself with L2 and tackle them straight away. The other tactic we have used is to be a very very pressing team, meaning the midfield are chasing the players, once a pass is made to someone, we run in front of it or slide in front of it to stop the supply.
I suppose its best to run backwards if you are sure they will try the ball over the top, like defenders do in real life. That or staying deep would probably work. It all depends on the situation, and how you read it really.
