Balanced 2-3-1-3-1 DM Wide Direct Press

I decided to simulate matches with this tactic. I've done half a season with Everton - should be a standard mid-table team.
After 19 games: Everton are 5th, with 9 wins, 5 draws, 5 losses. GD: 10 (36 for, 26 against)

For the second half of the season, I'm gonna reduce the passing to a short passing style, and pull the wing backs down but give them an attacking mentality. I'm also going to remove the Early Crosses and Whipped Crosses instructions as I never intended to include those anyway...
