Hello First tactic of mine i have felt confident about uploading i post information on this a day or so ago called if you build it it will be great well i have completed my 2nd season with southampton and i am over the moon with how the tactic has work. i normally download tactics from you guys who create some great tactics but after messing about with some of my own i wanted to create a complete tactic solid at the back and causes problems going forward i
finally decided on a type of 3 4 3

View attachment 328157View attachment 328154

i have a sweeper keeper to sweep up in case the defence is caught out
3 central defenders set on very defensive mentality
2 defensive midfielders a very important part of the tactic we have a anchor man with very defensive duty he just sits and proctecs the defence the a defensive mid with support duty he sits and help out but also helps in attack
2 wide mids wit automatic duty help both ways.
then the 3 pronged attack
advanced playmaker with attacking set to the highest and creative freedom with the same he dictates the play can score and create chancers for others.
attacking mid with the same set uo as the advanced playmaker.
then the poacher leading the line in all out attack mode.

After finishing 5th in 1st season tactic was leaking a lot conceded 50 odd goals and was not happy going forward not scoring enough goals so i sat in the pre season and i tweaked the tactic in great detail and all i can say is that the results were better than i could have hoped for

some stand out gamesView attachment 328192View attachment 328183View attachment 328184View attachment 328191View attachment 328191
aswell as winning the title i got beat by juventus in final off europa cup the most pleasing part of this tactic was the defensive side see photos

The training for pre season was general tactics very high and match also tactics once it was fluid i changed it during the season i went from general training between attacking and balanced and match training between attacking movement and def pos and defending set peices.

Thanks for looking and once i get the all clear for upload hope you guys give it a go.

Played 3 games with this so far.
3 clean sheets and some of the one touch football is a joy to behold.
You soak up a lot of pressure I have noticed but boy is it devastating going forward.

Second season Southampton I am.
Got a very good squad though after picking up some great deals first season and then picking up the transfer listed players this one.
Got isco for 12 mil and when he is on it rips up this tactic.
Has the potential to be great but not quite got the right striker for the tactic although Destro has chipped in with a couple.

what role do you play isco in i have him to started to play well towards end of season but got injured i think the striker may be the role that needs the most addresing i have strikers that seem to have 5-6 games of looking unplayable then go off form

Same as with the striker, Isco I played him mainly on the AP role sometimes on the AM

just quick tweak to mention for people using this i recomend making your 2 wide mids to be put on specific marking and tight marking against the wingers or if they are playing diamond put it on fullbacks it helps to stop them playing the the ball into space near the box this is were i saw the main fault with the tactic

Just discovered this tactic, looks very impressive. Might give it a whirl in my Liverpool game.
