FM 2014 Full Back roles and duties explained

Limited Full Back

  • Knows his strengths and weaknesses and focuses mainly on his defensive duties, rarely going forward into a more attacking role.
  • Can only have defend duty.

Full Back

  • A key player in modern football, having to supplement his traditional defensive duties with overlapping runs down the wing to support forward play and help attacks overload the final third. Although primarily a defensive player, he must be prepared to get forward when the team needs extra width.
  • With a defend duty, the full back will stay back with the defensive line and make simple possession passes either down the flanks or into central midfield.
  • With a support duty, the full back will support the midfield by providing extra width and will look for crosses and through balls when he has the chance.
  • With an attack duty, the full back supplements his defensive duties by overlapping the midfield and providing first-time crosses into the penalty area.
  • With an automatic duty, the full back will switch automatically between defend, support and attack duties according to your match strategies.

Wing Back

  • Usually playing out wide with no wing support, the wing back must take care of all the attacking and defensive duties of both wingers and full backs. In attack he must be ready to run at his man and deliver aggressive crosses, in midfield he must help win the possession battle while in defence he must help close down opponents, block crosses and win back the ball when possible.
  • With a defend duty, the wing back mainly stays deep, but will still cross the ball when he has the time and space to do so.
  • With a support duty, the wing back aims to provide angled through balls from out wide and cross the ball when the opportunity arises.
  • With an attack duty, the wing back aims to overlap down the flank to provide wide support for attacks, run at his man and get crosses in from the byline.
  • With an automatic duty, the wing back will switch automatically between defend, support and attack duties according to your match strategy.

Complete Wing Back

  • Loves to attack, and whilst he is capable of taking care of his defensive duties, his natural inclination is to affect the game in the opposition’s defensive third.
  • Can only have attack duty.
