Not really sure about this tactic. I mean, its pretty much great. Resultwise its great. But I find it that quite often a lot of the players dont get an especially high rating (unless they score or assist).

The striker does not work for me. Neither of my two strikers at Benfica got more than 10 goals a piece last season and they played pretty much 50% of the games each.
IW somestimes is great, sometimes just doesnt do anything. Diogo Jota got 3 goals in 6 games which is quite good (one or even two of them might have come from him playing in the SS-role.) But hes average is 6.93, which for me sums it up pretty well: I get the results, I get the wins but some players dont get the ratings I think they should be getting.

this is not me slagging off the tactic. i like it, but I have this feeling that its not really getting the best out of my players.

Bolton challenging for the Title, first season back, Enjoying the tactic, though the IW either has a great game or an absolute mare, but results wise, very nice, and cheers for the mirror one

I'm having the opposite effect with Benfica, but I'm using a small tweaked version as well as a mirror version of this version. Averaging 3.5 goals a game and I think I can still tweak it a little better to have better results on overall.

The MCE ( Mezzalla ) will always have the most shots per game, so switch him to shoot less or to a playmaker. It's important to have also the MOE as Inside forward, so he will have more plays with de left full-back towards the goal, which creates more clear cut changes for him and the centre forward.

Overall the base tactic is really good, congratz @kessy

Changed to be more attacking while still maintaining defensive consistency, usually just take goals from penalties or long shots, even against the biggest Europeans teams.

Left Inside forward, as to be right-footed, if you don't have a good one, mirror the tactic. Right midfielder looks like it can be either foot, but slightly better with right-footed players. Still tweaking the Shadow striker role, I think this is the best so far from my testing, changed to do more direct passing and free movement, because he would usually be off the game most of the time.

I've 3 games left including a cup final using this tactic but it seems to not be working as effectively, any ideas as to what I can do to steady it?

what does not work for you? not enough goals scored? conceding too many?

It worked fine and was winning easily but recently been going early goals down change it to attacking and get a good lead, change it back to positive and often ends up squeaky *** at end

Does your striker score? Mine doesnt. Although I get goals but not from the striker...
I like the this tweak tho :)

I've made a better tweak and the goals from the Striker improved again. I'm still testing a bit more, because it actually includes changes to defence, to allow more pressure. Is your striker left-footed?
