Well come to my try at the Brian clough formations 442

I made this formation suited to go against the big teams in the leagues and with this formation i have beaten spurs sunderland blackburn blackpool and only lost to arsenal 2 ,0 with nottm forest.
The counter football is very good with this formation from the word go its attack attack attack i scored a lot of goals in the championship and in the fa cup and with forest being the underdogs in every game ended up in the cup final in my first season .
Not often you see a newly promoted side battling Europe might of just been a fluke or the formation upto you on that one.

TEAM INSTRUCTIONS

I think you got most of it correct, but the direct passing is wrong, everyone knows Clough played a passing game, also the wingers are incorrect, there was only one winger in the Forest team and that was Robertson. O'Neil was more a wide Midfielder. How many does your Target Man score a season ?
