Tried it in 3 games as I am in preseason and it's surprisingly solid. The Real Madrid game was played with my rotation team and they still managed to win despite some of them are out of positions (specially the RW):
So seems I will need a good and cheap RW who can play there as a RM/RW when I will use the christmas tree (most likely in very hard games) as this is guy is my best solution: https://i.imgur.com/eR5niVx.png, while Parigini is a Championship player at most and the board lacks any ambition to give me some money to improve a squad I've build mostly for 41221 wide!
Obviously will slowly switch my recruiting to get someone able to play better there! :D
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.
Simmed a season with Sampdoria using Sympathy for the Devil. Expected 10th, finished 5th and lost at first round of cup. A couple of players scored decently, ratings are good. We took a lot of yellow cards.
I simmed a season with Sampdoria to test the tactic. Expected 10th, we finished 7th. Nobody performed very well, best scorer has 16 all competitions, ratings aren't really good. We also got eliminated in the first round of the cup. We didn't get much injuries
So overall, not really convincing in that test.
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.
This is incredible work from you and your team here at FMBase, so awesome! Just wondering when the skin-color/ethinicity coding will be finished, as I would literally pay for that to be done quickly! tKS
