After being PM'd numerous times about my tactic and being asked on numerous threads about it, I've decided to give it a release seeing as I've finally stopped playing my game.

In this save, I won the League title 13 years in a row, 8 Champions League trophies, 7 FA Cups, 6 Carling Cups, 6 World Club Cups and 5 UEFA Super Cups.

In 801 games of management, I have won 636, drawn 91 and lost just 74 games using this tactic in every single match. I've scored 2376 goals in those 801 matches and conceded just 652 goals. I also have a win ratio of 79% since taking over as Manchester United manager in 2010 (now in 2023/24 season).


Now to the tactic, it's a 4-4-2 with 2 advanced wingers, so the game reads it as a 4-2-4. The roles are as follows;

GK: Goalkeeper - Defend
RB: Full Back - Automatic
CB: Ball Playing Defender - Defend
CB: Stopper - Defend
LB: Full Back - Automatic
CM: Ball Winning Midfielder - Defend
CM: Advanced Playmaker - Attack
AMR: Winger - Attack
AML: Winger - Attack
ST: Deep Lying Forward - Attack
ST: Poacher - Attack

The majority of the positions have got specified roles and personal instructions to match the way they play in real life, for example the DLF (Rooney) has got Free Roam and has got the passing instruction to spread play as well as run from deep and shoot from range 'sometimes'.

As you can see, worked extremely well for me. Any questions give me a shout and I'll answer them as best I can.

That's super mate. Seems like it's really working for you. What role have you go Le Fondre in? Poacher or DLF?

Poacher, but i changed Madine to a Target man - Support and its working great. Just won Oldham 2-0 first game of the season.
