    when you want to attack and nothing else to lose .. your players will get tired but you will dominate more and create chances

    Create chances but don't do much with it... Also you're more vulnerable from counter attacks.

    I play better pressing the own half.

    you may play better but you give up possession more often with own half. You create more turnovers and interceptions and gain more possession, otherwise with own half, you give possession and only intercept in your own zone.

    It all depends on how you want to play and if you have the players to play that style.

    What I usually do is play one half with own half and the other with full pitch. Based on what I've seen in each half, I prefer to play with own half pressing. But I guess that's just how I play, many others play with full pitch and it works for them

    My setting is always on play own half...no matter where or who im playing...but still to play attacking...ive found this to work fairly well...what you loose on possession you gain in security from counter attacks & in general defending...

    Every time ive tried to play the whole pitch it doesn't really make much difference in the result so i figured not to use it...

    Attacking + own half works really well for me. Switching to full pitch doesn't really change much for me, in fact it just makes the opposition block and tackle more often

    well the whole idea of pressing high is to trying to gain the ball fast to start an attack .. thus work better with more attacking mentality
    sure it is a dangerous style, that is why it should be considered as the last option
