"The best form of defending is attacking" - Roberto Carlos




Firstly, don't mind my grammar. English isn't my native language. :)




This formation tested on FM 13 version 13.3.3 with Southampton.


Plus:
- GOALS FRENZY
- High ball possession rate (up to 60% - 70% ball possession)
- Terrifying amount of Shots, On Targets, and Clear Cut Chance
- High Pass Completion stats (up to 85%)


Minus:
- A little vulnerable through wide attack, or against team that have world-class winger or wide midfielder. A match could be ended with high score like 5-3, or 4-2 (which is i don't mind, because i'm satisfied enough with win and attempts on attacks)
You can still use this tactic, make some tweaks, or you can use another tactic to prevent this vulnerability. Your call.

- Since this is an attacking formation with high pressure, maybe this tactic doesn't work well with small teams. Let's say it, team like Forest Green, Huddersfield, Doncaster Rovers, Hull City against Manchester City, Chelsea, Barcelona, PSG, etc.
Talk about sense, it's like you launch full-scale attack against bigger bully using plastic spoon. Maybe it'll work better against not-so-far stronger team, same level team, and weaker team.




Formation: 3-5-2 Fluid Attacking

Hi, some very good results but your Southampton side is a very good side. How did your tactic fair from the beginning of your save ?

You play in the season 2017- 2018. You prolly have the best players available in that year. Try it out in the 12- 13 season first :)

Luckily, i have one regen CD named Shannon Conlon who have 20 on heading and 20 on jumping. He's on his prime (age 25). He scores almost on every corner attempt.
That's why i'm also gave set piece guide above :)

I haven't tried it yet with another team, but some people tried this tactic, and there's their testimonial.
(in Bahasa, i'll translate it into English)

Doddy:
"I'm using Tottenham. Home against West Ham won 4-1, Lennon hattrick"
"Away against swansea won 2-0, and this formation isn't fluid yet with my team"
"I think this formation needs 3 good CD and a good GK"
"Tactic Rating: 8,5"


Aditya:
"I have one player that pass rate is 100% #possession


Andito
"I've immediately tried it using PSG and won 7-1 against Leverkusen. Nice tactic!

and alson a screen shout of ur training and match prep plz


I don't think you will learn anything from it. If he used a specific training approach, then it's to suit HIS specific players and the match prep can only be show for the coming game, not how he has reasoned for previous matches.

The reason I bring this up is because in every tactic thread, there are atleats 5 people asking about it and it seems that they( not hou in specific) think it has something to do with the tactic

I haven't tried it yet. That's why i need some helps from people to try this formation, and give me some feedbacks to discover any vulnerabilities and weaknesses of my tactic..

If you want to try it with your Portsmouth, any kind of feedback would be gratefully needed :)
