Nice, attacking Tactic 4123 1

Super simple set up based on fluid counter attack with a couple of tweaks to individual roles. Really effective tactic, good results, some nice play too.

The midfield is chocka with play makers; the AP often pops up with goals (10 in 35 for newgen Benitez) but the majority come from the PF up top - In this case Haaland who scored 45 in 51 in my 1st full season playing the tactic. IW on the left does have an outlier - note below*

It's pretty tight at the other end too - Donnarumma played 51, conceded 20 and kept 35 clean sheet with an av rating of below 7, so he wasn't making 100's of wonder saves. Conceding 10 in the league all season is pretty insane; defensive partnership was usually Ajer and Onguéné with Godfrey being rotated in semi-regularly. Bellerin + Tierney in the FB positions.. So none of them are 'Elite' per se.

Assists mainly come from the AP with 12 in 33 starts and from progressive DLP in the DM spot, Neves in this instance; 10 assists in 35. The DLP in the middle seems to act mainly as a distributor, he had the highest pass completion in the squad with 85%

No OI's are used from Kick off but often if I'm not winning at HT I ask assistant and assertively tell them to buck up there ideas. I found using a more basic tactic allows for changes/shouts to have a greater impact, but this is anecdotal.

I think the wide player roles could be tweaked - *Only ESR really impressed scoring 18 in 24, but neither Saka or Fati got near those numbers.

Enjoy! Let me know how you get on!
