442 Narrow Diamond Attacking Formation

Formation & Instructions

View attachment 302402View attachment 302401

Hey folks. I created this tactic last weekend for fun after I saw it beating me 4-0 with ease, never thought I could get close to it, but I tried and it works brilliantly. I have used it with 2 teams by now, Werder Bremen and a later Manchester United, which I took over last year in the game on 16th place and leading them onto a third place. In the current season we are currently unbeaten, 1st league position.

But now about the tactic. I'm not a tactical genius by all means. But, I understand the game, how the game is working and what the game expects of you. I've downloaded so many tactics here in the past, this is just a little thing I hope to give back.

The mentality is attacking and using a structured shape. The team is closing down aggressive on the whole pitch, while in possession the defence is playing a short, safe-possession build up, the attacking third urgently tries to create clear cut chances and to score goals from them with highest speed.

I've also included SP routines, so don't worry about them.

Some Results

No mate I didn't try any OI but I imagine the ones lurking around or from an assistant with good JA and TK will do just fine. Played the latest matches with instant result only to see if it works plug and play. I have two different versions now for home and away, will upload them now

My first full season with ManU is over

Quite pleased with this at the end. We never played the same settings two matches after another so by that fact it's a respectable league win I think. Plus I think I finally got it stable and consistent now.

Some of the recent matches

I will keep my eyes open for a new challenge now as ManU had such big ressources to spend, they're already set for the next few years and don't need me anymore I think :D

Di Maria is not too shabby as a CM and Tony V, will do well ar RB as cover.

Fantastic football. 3 pre season games with Man United and the football is stunning. Away to try with an Aberdeen save I started.
