FM advanced forward guide:
The advanced forward‘s main role is to lead the line and look to spearhead attacking moves.
His primary duty is to be the focal point of attacking moves and he is required to both score and create goals.
His secondary role is to chase down misplaced through balls or clearances from deep, win possession and lay off passes or crosses to his teammates.
The advanced forward is only available with an attack duty.
It is a demanding role that requires both scorer and winger attributes. Slow players cannot handle this role. Also, I wouldn’t depend on an older player because their physical attributes diminish quickly.
What are the best scorer attributes? Finishing, composure, and off the ball. Since advanced forward is a forward, these attributes are also critical.
