I'll test your tactic over a period of 10 games with a top team in the Barclays Premier League.
I'll judge your tactic on results and match stats, I will reply to your rating request with a detailed review, and I'll also provide you with a star rating by Ovro for your tactic thread!

All tactics work with top teams, why not test them with an average team like West Brom, that way you can see which over achieve the most. Using a top team means you can only achieve what is expected.

Disagree, there is much more pressure on top teams to perform, and I'm only reviewing the tactics functionality and if it works how it's been made to. I'm not testing if it will save you from relegation or if it will make your goalkeeper score 50 yarders. ;)

I've decided to give your tactic a 4 star rating.
I tested this tactic with Tottenham, and these were the results as follows:

Results:
7 Wins, 2 Losses and 1 Draw.

Newcastle (A) 3-1
West Brom (H) 2-0
Manchester United (A) 1-2
Everton (A) 0-2
Chelsea (H) 3-1
Cardiff (A) 2-0
Arsenal (H) 3-3
Hull City (H) 5-0
West Ham (A) 4-0
Liverpool (H) 3-1

Summary:
A good, all-round solid tactic, that could easily propel the likes of Everton into a Champions League spot, or get you promoted from the Championship unbeaten. Looks and feels fluid in attack, but defence is where it tragically falls apart, okay not tragically, but it's certainly a weak spot and you can't blame Vertonghen. Letting in 10 goals in 10 games doesn't spell out title contender to me.

If you're the kind of person who is looking for a solid base tactic for your team and don't mind adding your own personal touches to really make this a 5 star 4-4-2 then definitely download this. Or if you're a lower league manager, once again, get all over this tactic!

Focus:
To achieve 5 star this tactic will need to tighten up at the back, but also be more fluid in recovering the ball in your own half. The team seems to sit back and let the opposition come onto them to much, before launching a 2-5 man counter. It's definitely okay to sit back, and counter, but not when you're sitting back to deep and it only seems like 4 of your player's are defending.

I you want, you are welcome to test this one.

As you notice, the tactic is uploaded here and not in a tacticthread. This is basiclly my new version of my SPLIT 451 and I am going to update my thread with it some time this week when I have the time to re-write the opening post
  • The Tactic uses no Playmaker or Target Man
  • NO OIs are essentiall in the test
  • The Tactic uses a high energy game
  • The DR is one that stays back
  • The DL is much, much more attacking
  • The DMC Is more of a Box2Box, NOT a holding an deepcoming player
  • The MC is a Holding DMC
  • MR is a Classic English Winger
  • The AML is one that should be left footed, otherwise remove the huge touchline wide play and set it to none
  • The AMC & FC Combo is important. If using a FC that likes to come deep, then the AMC should NOT like to do the same ( LIke the Aguero & Tevez combonot being ideal for this one)
The Flow

The Thoughy of the tactic is to have one side ( the right) playing a more probing and patient football,dragging the opponenst on to the them whilst the left side laucnhes quicker attacks. If facing opponenets sitting deep, its more likely that the right side will be used in the build, especially if your goalkeeper and DMc are right footed.

Picking the squad for matchday

If letting the assistant manager pick the squad, the roles set by the TC should make him take the correct decision most of the time so my list of requirements should be looked at as some extra info.


Cheers

No, I've just not had the time to get round to all of these yet.
I've set aside a few hours tomorrow for it, post your tactic, and I'll get it done. :)
