4-4-1-1 Spirit of 99

4-4-1-1 Spirit of 99 v1

I've been getting excellent results with this tactic at various levels from Non-league with both York City and Altrincham to Serie A with Forentina. It can take time to get players use to the formation but once the team clicks they become almost unstoppable.
very good results even with underdog teams in champions league..even when you lose you ll see high numbers of tries
I simmed 4 different careers over one season to test.

Leicester (predicted 8th)
Finished 5th (72 points). 96 goals scored (#1), 69 conceeded (#5). 12 losses, only 3 draws. Beat most top teams (City twice).
Vardy 41 games 41 goals. Maddison 46ga 20g 16a. Albrighton 14a, Gray 13a, Tielemans 13a.
Didn't perform well in FA Cup, reached semi of Carabao (vs Liverpool).
Got a couple of injuries, nothing crazy, but Vardy for example missed 7 weeks.

Toulouse (predicted 16th)
Finished 2nd (73 points). 11 losses. 80 goals scored, 50 conceeded (quite a lot, most from top 7).
Koulouris scored 26 in 39, Dossevi assisted 11 in 28.
Didn't do much in both cups.
Got injuries, Gradel being out more than half the season (arguably best Toulouse player), Dossevi out over 3 months, Sanogo 2 months,...

Mallorca (predicted 19th)
Finished 7th. 57 points, 74 scored (4th) but 72 conceeded (16th). Hernandez sored 24 in 40 games, Kubo scored 17 and assists 7 in 38 games.
Didn't get much injuries.

Frankfurt (predicted 11th)
Finished 1st (67 points). 2nd offense, 7th defense. 21 goals in 24 games for Andre Silva.
I picked Frankfurt for Europa League, and that was very bad. Knocked out 2 rounds before group stage.

Overall great tactic. Overachieved in leagues. Never did anything in cups, unfortunately. Strikers seems to score. You'll conceed goals though, and probably take quite some yellows.
I have tried 5 different tactics in Premier League (with Wolves) , this is far the best one. Only handicap is so many balls behind the defence line, may be backs can be more defensive and quick. Thanks for the tactic mate.
Stunning tactic. Results speak for themselves.
Most consistent tactic I've found so far playing some really good football
it's the best tactic on this forum.
Very good for a lot of rosters.
I've been testing it with big clubs like MU and RB Leipzig and smaller ones like Nantes or Montreal.
It's the most consistent since the patch 20.2.
I really like this formation and tactic.
Slotted right in with my players.
Already seen 3-0 Win home, 2-1 Win away, and another 3-1 win home.
Will continue using this for the rest of the season.
- Keep up the good work!

PS. I personally dont like "Get Stuck In", so I removed it, but results are there still for me.
