Hi,

I need some testers for my tactics. I'm currently testing this with my everton team. I made this formation based on the versatility of everton team since almost all of their players can play multiple positions. This tactics uses lots of switching, man-marking (for almost all of the players), lots of forward runs.


The requirement for Players/positions with the important attributes needed for this tactics

GK/Sweeperkeeper (support) - HANDLING - REFLEXES - RUSHING OUT- ACCELERATION - AGILITY

SWC/Sweeper (DEFEND) - MARKING - PASSING - TACKLING- ANTICIPATION - CONCENTRATION - POSITIONING - ACCELERATION

DCL/Central Defender (Stopper) - HEADING - MARKING - AGGRESSION - BRAVERY - JUMPING - STRENGTH

DCR/Ball Playing Defender (Defend) - HEADING - MARKING - PASSING - TACKLING - CONCENTRATION - POSITIONING - STRENGTH

DMC/Anchor Man (Defend) - HEADING - MARKING - TACKLING- ANTICIPATION- CONCETRATION - DETERMINATION- POSITIONING - WORKRATE - STRENGTH but can play as DMC and MC for switching.

ML/MR/Defensive Winger (Attack) - CROSSING - DRIBBLING - MARKING - TACKLING - TEAMWORK- TECHNIQUE - WORKRATE - PACE - STAMINA

MCL/Box to Box (support) - ALL REQUIREMENTS FOR A GOOD BOX TO BOX MIDFIELD (eg. Tim Cahill) but can play as AMC and MC for the switching. And set as Playmaker

MCR/Ball Winning Midfielder (support) - MARKING - PASSING - TACKLING - AGGRESSION - DETERMINATION - WORKRATE - TEAMWORK - STAMINA, can play DMC and MC for switching plays

AMC/ Trequista (attack) - FINISHING- FIRST TOUCH - PASSING - TECHNIQUE - ANTICIPATION - COMPOSURE - CREATIVITY - FLAIR - AGILITY, can play MC and AMC for switching.

FC/ Complete forward (Support) - All attributes needed for a Complete Forward. Set as Target man

here's the formation:

Tactics breakdown:

You will notice that even though we have a sweeper, i also assigned the GK as sweeper keeper, this is to provide cover since there will be leaks from the wings when the ML and MR makes their forward runs. If you check the Team instructions, the marking is set to man-marking, but the sweeper is set to zonal marking, for the sweeper to provide cover.

The anchor man will also provide cover on the wing since his wide play is set to hug the touchlines ( i still need to test this out, i'm checking this tactics by watching the whole match).

The two central defenders are set to run from deep sometimes. Jagielka runs forward sometimes specially on the counter attack, he's one of my top scorers for 4 games, and two of them are from the forward runs.

The wings are set as defensive wingers due to the lack of Full/wingbacks. put players that are quick and defensive oriented in these positions.

The switch:

Box to box switches with the Trequista ( Cahill - Arteta)

Anchorman switches with the Ball winning Midfield (Felaini - Rodwell)



PS:

I will test it out more so that i can make a more interesting tactics.
