Hi guys

just a small thread for anyone who would like to test a tactic i am working on

got some brilliant results with Aston Villa and Real Madrid

any advice on fine tunning it would be greatly appreciated

tactic is attached it's a 4-1-3-2


***UPDATE***

i have edited the tactic changing the two cb's to cover meaning they dropper slightly deeper hopefully giving more defensive stability

anyone except Real Madrid, Aston Villa and Celano

I'm looking mainly at how the defence performs because i seem to be finding that in some games they get caught on the break and some not nearly as much?

my player roles are:
LB and RB are fullbacks Support
CB's are central defender on Defend
DM is deep lying playmaker Support
AMR and AML are both inside forwards Attack
AMC is advanced playmaker Attack
both ST's are complete forwards Attack

I gave it 10 games with 4 teams mate.
Blackpool 3W 3D 4L lost heavily and never dominated.
Liverpool 9W 1D 0L Mauled most teams by about 3 or 4 goals.Drew at old trafford 2-2
Huachipato(chile) W7 D3 L0 Pretty good but never dominated that much.
Parma W3 D4 L3 tend to concede early on and chase the game.


So overall its a good tactic if your one of the bigger teams in the league.
I tweaked it a bit and changed the mentality to control instead of attacking.
And also set passing to short.
This gave me better results as parma.

I think its not suitable if your a mid table/bottom table club as other teams will exploit the defence and score a bag of goals. But with a little more tweaking it could be really good.

i will make some changes to the defence and see how that works for a low team in the prem maybe wolves or blackpool.

I'll do it with Doncaster if you want.....

After 5 games with Leyton Orient my results are as follows:

3-1 - Southampton - Home - JPT sth qtr final.
Dominated from start to finish.
2-1 - MK Dons - Away - L1
Went 1 behind, great comeback after half time.
2-3 - Southampton - Away - FA 1st Rnd replay.
Got dominated took a 2-1 lead 10 mins after half time, conceaded a penalty and collapsed after.
1-3 - Tranmere - Away - L1
Got dominated, never looked good enough to win.
0-2 - Southampton - Home - L1
Held on until 60th min when they took they lead and dominated the rest of the game

Overall, good tactic, works well but only with a full strength side, lost my best AMC after the dons game, and didn't have good cover.

I have updated the OP with a tactic which is hopefully alot more sturdy in defence i havent conceded in a few games with it so it looks to be closer to perfect

I moved the DMC & AMC to MC with the same Deep Playmaker support, and Advanced Playmaker attack, got a lot of better results that way.
