I've gotten great results as underdogs in The Netherlands wiith S.B.V. Excelsior and as top 6 contenders with Torino in Italy. Keeping a lot of clean sheets and scoring a good amount of goals.
A 4-2-3-1 asymmetric formation.
Both fullbacks and both centrebacks have Shoot Less Often.
The AMCL has Roam From Position
No opposition instructions or specific set piece takers.
