    can possession be a disadvantage

    why i do ask: if i see my oppenent plays a very aggressive formation and i want to force counterattacks. but now i play at home, watch the game and got 2 friends. so i get 20% possession advantage and lead in possession. is force counterplay still useful?

    Force Counterattacks works when your opponent has the ball - to draw in their attacks and make them play higher up the pitch. If you have higher possession it can still be effective but probably just less often.

    Playing defensive and forcing counterattacks can actually produce higher possession where you wouldn't otherwise have it.

    Yeah I've noticed that happening.

    Total shots is more important than possesion. The real process of the program I think is there.
