Gonzo11's Defensive Diva (13.3.3)

Hi everyone, It is me Gonzo here today to post what i think is a true underdog tactic. It is a 4-1-4-1 formation which is a very defensive shape. This tactic offers secure defence so that you will not get too many shots at you and you will not concede many goals. I have instructed a deep defensive line and my entire defensive line plus my defensive midfielder has been instructed to a minimum mentality and minimum creative freedom. The midfield and the striker on the other hand are all attacking and are allowed creative freedom. I have set the tempo to slow and it is working very well.

Notes

Arrange enough friendlies so that the tactic will get fluid

In Pre-Season always put tactic in the backup tactics. It helps it to get fluid faster

Use high bonuses in all your competitions that you are competing in

Keep the players morale high. It makes the players perform better in games which is very important

I highly recommend you to use my Godfather tactic in your save when your team has gone World Class

I created a version of this tactic for players on Fm Classic. I doubt that it is as good as the classic one but it is good though. Im 1st with Hoffenheim after 14 games :) So please test it and see what you think :)

I will leave you at this, i hope that you will enjoy my tactic and please post some feedback. It helps me really much. I hope that it will work for you as well as it did for me. ESTAC Troyes were predicted 20th ! Wampley created a players filter for the tactic found here: Gonzo Diva Filters - Download - 4shared - Wampley 78 Thanks bud :)

Keeper comes up for every corner? Bardi actually scored from one but he was offside :( could cost me though eventually

This was a mistake. I am very sorry. I changed it to default :) Just download it again.

Great!
I'll test... maybe with Eintracht Braunschweig...

Wingers and WB must be defensive or doesn't matter?
And if my strikers are so fast, can change 'to feet' order for 'run to ball'?

I think that you must have a tall striker with good heading abilities because the two wings are giving many crosses for the striker. Also my right wing shots pretty often.

It seems that its not consistent. Big wins with Sportul and Ceahlaul and a poor 1-1 with chindia at home where we were considered favorites.

Sure you can change from "to feet" to "run onto ball" just dont change mentality. I have not seen what attributes matter the most cause my testing team ESTAC Troyes had horrible players. Hope this will help :)
