Good morning all, I decided to upload my very successful 4-3-3 (or 4-5-1, depends how you view it) tactic that I am currently using for my Sc Freiburg save :)

Download link

Total Downloads:
12 386


1st season - Finished 6th (Media prediction - 17th) Won the DFB Pokal

2nd season - Finished 5th
Won the DFB Pokal again and lost 1:0 to PSG Europa League Final)
Current season - 1st :)






Wingers are asked to cut inside and support the Forward as well as look for scoring oppurtunites themselves :) very important positions in this tactic :)


I suggest changing the Philosophy to Balanced or even Rigid to begin to get your team Fluid in all departments of the tactic (see pic below)

View attachment 137419

if you have a tall striker like Selezynov, Zigic, Carrol etc etc, change his role to Target Man and change run with ball often to rarely :)

I suggest changing Strategy to either Counter or Standard if you are a smaller team until your squad gets used to the tactic as well :)

Unbeaten Record for Sc Freiburg :)

View attachment 137422

Touchline Shouts:

1) Pass into space
2) Get stuck in
3) Work ball into box
4) Clear ball to flanks (if playing a stronger team)

Opposition Instructions:

Ask Assistant Manager (if his Tactical knowledge is not the greatest like my one (Tony Cotton) I suggest showing all their Attacking players to their weaker foots and closing down their main playmaker as well as hard tackling on their quicker strikers and wingers :)

Suggested players:

Gk: Good old fashioned Keeper (Maarten Stekelenburg)
Fb: Good on defense and positioning, high work rate, good marking, plus: decent at running with ball and passing/crossing (Andreas Beck)
Cb: Both tall and strong, composed and determined, plus: Pacey and good anticipation (Serdar Tasci, Mats Hummels)

Dm: Defensive and agile, fast, anticipation, takling, marking, work rate, teamwork and positioning (Annan, Y'Mvilla, Cheick Kouyate, Mate Simao)
Cml: Creative playmaker, good at passing (Haris Medunjanin)
Cmr: Work hores Midfielder, stamina, tackling, marking, passing, concentration, fitness, strength is a bonus (Sami Khedira, Palacios, Huddlestone)

Aml: other playmaker, good passing, long shots, creativity, pace, off the ball, stamina, agility and dribbling (James Rodriguez, Juan Albin)
Amr: Quick, agile, attacking winger (good old fashioned winger, however, he cuts inside and looks for the pass rather than looks for the cross from the byline, so needs to have good decisions, passing, creativity, dribbling, technique (Giannis Fetfatzidis, Arshavin, Messi)

St: depends on your players really... however, in the tactic, he needs to be quick, strong, good finisher, off the ball, dribbiling is a bonus, pace. etc
(Lucas Gaucho, Benzema, Rooney)


let me know how it goes :) feel free to post comments :)
thanks :)
Neil

Could you also provide some info about the player types required for each position ?
i.e. especially regarding wingers, cause i am thinking about using Suarez on the left wing and Carroll as a target man...

Also, some info about in-match shouts and OI ???

Thats what i use as well :p 4-5-1(4-3-3) with 2 wingers DL playmaker SP and advance playmaker AT.Regular CB because mine suck... Fluid , control ,more expressive,more cautios,more roaming and zonal marking.
I find 4-5-1 the best tactic for any league.Alot of possesion and alot of chances/match.
You wont get anything but positive feedback on this one :p

I've always liked your tactics, Raikan, and I'd trust that this one is just as good. :)

I'll give it a try sometime, my current team doesn't really fit into it though, unfortunately.

well i tested this in few games in my new save with Dinamo Zagreb.i played only few games so far but i can already see that this tactic is good as your 4-4-2 tactic.here are my results so far

Dinamo vs Inter Baku 4-0 ECC
Dinamo vs Hajduk 3-1 Croatian Supercup
Dinamo vs Inter Baku 2-1 ECC
Dinamo vs Inter(Z) 2-2 D1 well here i was a little unlucky,they shooted 2 times on target and scored both of them,grr hate when that happens lol
Dinamo vs Birkirkara 4-0 ECC

i will test it for whole season and then will return with feedback but i must tell you that i score most goals with my corner bug i made but no matter of that this tactic is great and i like that dominate football this tactic is giving me :D

here is that bug i made
