This is a classic flat 4-4-2. 2 strikers, no wingers, 4 in the middle and 4 at back. If you don't want to get fancy and just want solid play, this is for you. Works in leagues and teams big and small. Have tested it in Vanarama, Championship and Premier League so far, and it's worked in all.

so, the defensive tweak is the '' get stuck in '' and the target man role ?

and you play with that D-Line against bigger opponents?

That's what's been working for me. Someone messaged me and said the defensive one works better if you uncheck 'mark tighter' and 'tackle harder' for EVERYone and if you drop it to Counter mentality, but I haven't tried that yet...

i think the counter mentality is the best bet for the current M.E
Yea? I'll try a Counter test with this 4-4-2 after this current one then...but still in 1st with Forest and Brighton and 2nd with Tottenham, so it's working with Control :p

I wasn't talking about your 4-4-2 , but in general ,

but i'm interesting to see a 442 with lower mentality

OP updated with this Counter tweak: Bluths 442 Counter_6380B361-713D-44EE-A2E9-AE3DEFBC72E6

Changes team mentality to Counter and Team Instructions a bit. Since putting it in with all my tests, I haven't lost and it seems to be a bit stronger. You can play both original and this tweak and really keep the AI guessing.

Still going with Tottenham. Media Prediction 6th. Looks like we'll get 2nd or 3rd place, but we're into the FA Cup Final and the Europa League Final, so will update after those are done.
