Bored to death with the tactics on this forum, mainly with all the 523, I (once again) went back to a beautiful, simple, tradicional shaped, masterpiece created for FM2016 by FM14SERBIA.
Guess what? IT USES REAL WINGERS!

To fully enjoy this tactic understand this:
1-BE PATIENT! This is not the best nor the most efficient tactic on the forum, but you will clearly overachieve, and in a realistic way. (It will take you a few seasons before you're able to win the champions league with Porto :)). Give it time.
2-Don't panic with the number of CCC you opponent creates. They will actually miss a lot.
3-The football played is just great and really, really, realistic. (you will not see the ball bombed upfront like all those 3 strikers tactics around;))
4-Don't change anything, mentality, roles, whatever, just plug and play.

Any doubts concerning the type of players and training, please refer to the original thread, but actually what I do, playing FM Touch on the PC, is set the training to general, and set individual training to the following roles (like TFF recommends): GK-GK; DL-CWB; DC-BPD; MC-DLP; W-W; FC-Trequartista.

Concerning the players just two remarks:
1-Right wing-Right foot, Left wing-Left foot
2-Don't be afraid to play unsuitable strikers on the F9 role, even tall slow guys, they will play well and score goals.

OIs: The Original Thread from 2016 does recommend a few, I just ignore it.
So for me NONE.

And the usual general notions:
Keep morale high, playing friendlies against amateur clubs whenever the schedule allows it, or using your reserves to do so.
During a match sub all players underperfoming, if needed by half time, mainly if you are loosing.

To finish just let me reinforce the idea: this is a wonderful and fun tactic to use on the long run, it will work on all teams, but if you are looking for miracles, sorry look elsewhere. And again BE PATIENT! Don't give up on this tactic with a couple of defeats. Go for it! Go for it on the long run, forget about tricking the ME, and have real real fun.

Results:
First season with Sirius in Sweden (predicted bottom of the table): Won League, Cup, and went top of my Europa League Group.

The swedish success led me to Rangers in December, still in time to win the league and the cup.
Second season won the league cup and was in a tough fight with Celtic for the league, before accepting the toughest challenge until this moment....

....taking over a dying Marseille in December, and just 2 days before a away game against PSG!!!XD
Immediately started a revolution in a crazy squad, full of unhappy players, so had to sweep the trash out, and prepared for some January buys. Obviously I suffered the consequences: 0-5 lost at Paris. But slowly I'm setling the team, I bought some good players and they are now responding: after a odd defeat against Auxerre, two very convincing wins against a very strong Monaco and a always tough Bordeaux. I'm aiming for a Europa League place. :)

What I ask to everyone testing this tactic is: don't settle with just a couple of matches. Do a long test, at least 20 matches. Enjoy the gameplay, the goals, the wins, with the inner satisfaction of winning with a "normal" tactic, with "normal" results.
Implemented tactic in Liverpool save, last 10 season games, 8 wins and 2 loses, ( Barcelona 1-2, and Chelsea 0-3 ) but i won against Barcelona next game 3-0 and few 3-0 wins against top Europe teams ( near end of season so was far away in all competitions ). Before that used TFF 3DC tactic.

Tactic is very consistent, also strikers score a lots but they sometimes fail by miles ( probably due to inconsistent of FM ).

I would rate it 9/10 so far

a bit challanging to survive 20 games without getting sacked
Well, I imagine that like in real life, it's tough to survive with Swansea in the Premier League. Still I think you had a run of bad luck there. Don't give up on this yet. Try to drive your way out of the hole, change things, do something different.
I made my own "7 league games" test with Swansea's original squad, with no management whatsoever. Just auto picked the team, and god knows the AI picks very badly sometimes, and used instant result. Spectacular? No. Just pretty real for Swansea. And if well managed, with some good buys, pretty sure I would be able to aim for Europe.
PS: Just call me Carvalhal. He has a dream. (Carvalhal Reveals 'Carlos Had a Dream' Stitched on Jacket as Swansea Reach FA Cup Quarters | 90min) :D

Is there many PI's set on the player roles? Loved the original and may give it a bash on FMT on android!

I love the football this plays! Its really attractive to watch and very realistic.
Nice to have wingers crossing for my strikers to tuck it away!
