Update from Napels. Finished 3rd in the league after melting in the last 6 games. Also bottled the champions league final.

Apart my striker who finished on 29 goals in 33 games. I really struggled for goals. If he had a bad day then we struggled. Especially against defensive teams.

Draws against Bologna, Verona, Parma, Sampdoria and Torino probably costing me the league.

Defensively it was solid with the best defence in the league.

Season 2. I did use another tactic up until December (4 draws and a loss in that time) then reverted back to this and what a decision that turned out to be.

Goals much more spread out than last season as well. Rock solid defence, Striker still scoring and the midfield getting involved as well now.

Thank all of you for your feedback!

I absolutely have to show you what I just got back from testing.
I simulted a season with Dinamo Zagreb for a user, and while everything other than me finishing 1st would have been a disappointment, I did not expect this result.

Before you see it, just a couple of thoughts from me: First of all, this is better than any season I have ever actively played in any FM.
Secondly, it's almost heartbreaking how close this was to absolute glory.
Ladies and Gentlemen, feast your eyes upon this:

Just to put this into into stats:
This is a season with:
2,9444 points per game.
2,75 goals scored per game.
0,2222 goals conceded per game.

Just madness.
I also reached the Europa League final.

preferred foot on wingers and set piece takers?
Generally speaking, as close to being either footed as you can get.
That said, as you can see, this formation uses inverted wingers, and the results with proper inverted wingers (strong right foot on the left side and vice versa) have been better than right on right and left on left - the tactic should still return, just not as well.

As for the set pieces, I can't claim any praise for the the state of them right now, because they're not mine - they're from @Knap - the attacking corners, that is.
Currently, the corners are preferably played short, so the foot of the taker doesn't quite matter as much. On the player you're passing too, you'd ideally want good crossing and him to be either footed. Otherwise, I would probably go left from right and right from left - but I'm not yet an expert on set-pieces by any means.

I'm working on my own and will update this once I'm happy with how they work.

The tactic testing area has now been updated and I'm happy to present you the results:
Overall: 16
Top: 14
Good: 17
Average: 17
Poor: 19

What's notable is that there are incredible few fouls with this tactic. In fact, there are NO tactics who have ranked higher than this one while committing less fouls per game. (There's only one tactic with fewer fouls per game than this one)
In that regard, this tactic is unrivalled right now.

Would i be right in thinking this comes under 'Vertical Tika Taka' or 'Fluid Counter Attack' as it don't really have the majority of possession? Plan on revamping my coaching and want everyone on the same wave length.

Gonna give this another blast with pompey, won 3-0 away first game. Started off with my custom tactic and then switched to this tactic in the 30/40th minute. And only reloaded the tactic into the third slot four days prior. Liverpool up next so might tweak the mentality down from attacking?

PS @MRCX i couldnt respond to your question about the review. I felt that its not a gamebreaker thats what i didnt give it five out of five. However its been very promising for me

I usually tend to watch the beginning and then react, but considering you're Portsmouth it might be worth starting on positive as well. Generally speaking, I don't often tweak my mentality, I feel like it often does more harm than good.

Yeah i think thats good advice mate, cheers for that. Just sold Freddie Woodman as he wasnt improving enough and would never be my Big Pete in goal. At the moment ive got Marcus Dewhurst as backup, but looking for a proper goalie as number one.

Edit - Snapped up a certain Matthew Ryan who will be a nice improvement over my younger gk.
