Definition of Defensive Width - On FM21, the defensive width definitions have been changed. We are moving away from the 'wide', 'narrow' etc definitions towards definitions that offer of a tactical description based on what you'll be asking the defender to force your opposition to do. To aid this, arrows have been added for those that need visualisations to understand what each defensive width represents for the opposition.
