This will be my last FM15 tactic, and she's a beauty. Between this one, the 4-5-1 counter, the Structure, and the Brick Wall, if you can't find a way to win, well, you're hopeless. :p This one's a 4-4-2. Strong at back, strong up front, the whole team gets in on both sides of the ball and flows up and down the field together.

No OI's. Man marking is buit in, so you don't have to worry about it.
Corners - DL/DR
Free kicks - whoever
Throw-ins - whoever
Training Pre-season: Tactics - Very High and Tactics for match prep
Training Season: Balanced - Average and Att. Movement for match prep

Will finish Southampton and then test with a big team, but if it can take Southampton to First Place and a 12 game unbeaten run, I think it'll do even better with a big team.

oh and also do you mind explaining what types of player would better suit the defensive forward and deep lying forward, i'd expect one would need to be a target man and the other has more pace?

I sold Gaston Ramirez for a bunch. The others all wanted to leave their clubs, so I pay 1 mil or 2.5 mil upfront and then backload the contract, saying I'll pay 5 mil over 48 months. Doesn't cost me much and they all take it cause they want to leave :p

If you scout them and make an enquiry and it's rejected, after that you might see something like "the coach is facing a row as Player X wants to leave". I forget the exact wording, but you'll get notice after you make an enquiry and it's rejected. Then you'll know they want to leave the club and their team will be more willing to get rid of them.

Bluth, I've been testing a variation of your tactic with excellent results. The only thing I did was change both MR/ML to AMR/AML with winger role. Here's a pic:

Please do some testing yourself and tell me your opinion.

It's worked with Southampton. It's worked with Barca (of course). It destroyed with Leeds.

Who to try next?
