TONGA TYLER -The codename for a new 5-4-1 formation with

-NO new purchases
-NO formation tweaking
- MERELY HOLIDAYING THE ENTIRE SEASON



THE GIST OF IT
This tactic involves 2 wingbacks whose main roles are to break through the offense's wingers and contribute to the passing to Attacking wingers/inside forward. Their only job is to distribute possesion but they are more advanced than the Centrebacks so they are enabled to attacking following their own position instructions.

The defense is created in a way to assure closing down attacks from both flanks focusing passes down the flanks and centralizing clearances through the middle
The offense is given enough supply to garner very good possession rates throughout games and to resoundingly fight opponents and not merely concede defeat

RESULTS


Now I understand 5th place is not a good place but we've only had 2 injuries the entire season

And the squad depth was considerably low without any purchases + it was my assistant whose quality is not up to par with that of human players


Things to consider

Looks good but not great. However you conceded less goals all season then I have conceded at the end of January with my West Ham team, so looks pretty decent

The tactic looks decent but you should play the season yourself as going on holiday is not a precise reprensentation of your tactic. It does look solid defensively though.

If you don't mind me asking,why do you have your forwards on hard tackling? and your central defenders?doesn't this run the risk of freekicks and being red carded?

Ah seems like a mistake I meant the centrefields to get the hard tackling seems like a major fluke i'll fix it now but I might add I never had the Central defenders have hard tackling I just checked

Properly as in without holidaying? I've been working on that it's taking me a while lol more time consuming that just holidaying so not yet I haven't fully properly tested it
