What about the 4-2-2-2 you've used in an other thread? Do you prefer the 4-2-3-1 over that?

I think I am spoilt for choice as all the tactics i'm testing are winning the league comfortably with the worst team. I was hoping one tactic would stand out and make the choice easier for me. I think I will probably go for a combination of tactics similar to what TFF advocates. Starting with a more defensive system 4-1-4--1/4-1-3-2 and then moving to a more attacking formation if I'm losing

Excellent mate. Have you done any more since?
I've switched back to my Everton save again.

I'm getting some inconsistent results but I suspect it's more due to the team and due to the fact that I think I'm in 2043 right now with that save.

It's still the best tactic for me personally right now. My Leipzig results are nothing short of amazing really, if I can do the same with my Everton team that would be great.

I highly agree- i felt this way as well which is why i wanted to try and make my own tactics- My 4222 is really good especially for attacking teams, if you plug and play it with a top team I imagine you won't lose a game- but i don’t test tactics with top teams. I tested that with Oxford utd and I gained back to back promotions to the premier league. I then kept it in the prem but it didn't get me in the top 6 with 2 seasons but it was always on holiday so with proper managing you easily could.

I prefer the 4231 overall because it includes a CAM and there are so many good ones available but if i had a squad which didn't have a CAM i'd happily use the 4222 instead. The 4222 is a monster for scoring goals- It could be tweaked again too

Have you tested the 4231 yet?

Yeah I feel it is the best tactic as well. I love using it with every team and I love the fact you can win in big away games and finals etc. I hope your Everton team picks up with it. Got any results to share?

hay stuart,
finally i can play fm19 after ignored it for about 1 years (lazy because diff user interface than fm17)

alrd tried some 4-4-2 tactics
but u right, its little bit hard to fit the role in 4-4-2 because nowdays all winger is amr/aml and play 1striker
so really hard to find 2 good striker, and fit winger old school

i decided to play ur tactics now!
hahahaa

I'm still using this tactic with my Everton team,

There's just 1 change that I made at Everton that I didn't do at Leipzig and that's asking my assistant to do the OI's.
I didn't use any in my Leipzig save but it felt needed for my Everton team to try and get some more consistent results.

I won the Premier League, but got knocked out by Roma in the Quarter Finals of the CL unfortunately.
I have started a new season with some wonderkids that are starting to play more as well. Not sure how long I'll stay at Everton though as it's my long term save.

EDIT:

After playing some more games yesterday I'm not really sure on how to feel on using OI's.
It seems that on some games it does have a good effect but in other games I get smashed 4-1 by Tottenham for example because they completely tear down my defense.

@stuartclark16 Do you use any OI's with this? If so, do you let the assistant choose them?

I know It's Barca. But I think that the results are still quite impresive. No OI. AsM handles pre match tactical briefings. I take teamtalk and press conf. I think that the tactic suits the team really well.

I honestly don't touch that at all. It's whatever the default setting is. I presume my assistant manager chooses them.

I've set it to no OI's where *** man doesn't do it either and I feel the results are better.
Hi stuart,

Thanks for your reply. I think you're right that it's better without OI's.

I'm still playing with Everton but thinking of switching to another team in the winter. Time to rebuild another squad :)

I think so too...

Let me know how it goes. Have you found more success yet?

I think I won 2x the Premier League with Everton.

Got knocked out 2x in the CL as well though.
The Barca job came available so I decided to switch as my season with Everton wasn't really going that great. I might have went a little too far with buying all the Wonderkids for my squad at Everton and just playing them in my first 11.?

With Barca I'll start working on a more balanced squad. So far my results with Barca have been exceptional. Winning every game so far.

A little bit later than I planned but here are my screenshots
:everton.PNGeverton2.PNG
Won 4x the title with Everton though I suspect only the last 3 were with this tactic. My Barcelona results have been exceptional though as you can see. Shame about the Sevilla result, but I got 2 red cards and couldn't do much about it after that.

My target with Barca now is to win everything that I can and that should be no problem at all with the team I already have.
