After playing 4 seasons with Chelsea using the tactic of Mr. Langvatn (thank you sir, i won PL 4 times in a row).

After awhile it gets boring using someone else's tactic. I tried tweaking other's tactic but it never worked, so I decided to make one myself.

It's been doing wonders for me so far (early stages of season 2019-2020).

Set General Training to:
Default Focus: Balanced
Default Intensity: Very High

More Match Training

Match Training:
Default Focus: Tactics Only
and tick "Allow rest after match"

Tell me how it goes. I really want to know if this tactic will also work for you guys! (please be gentle, I'm no master tactician) :)

This tactic is very new and I will let you know the results as it rolls!

NOTE: Don't use the middle CD to take throw ins, he will bag some goals from throw long throw ins! :D

Normally i always play with low lvl teams in inferior divisions. After tried the 5 , 6 top tactics in this site this one gave me the best results...good work.
Good to hear mikoeltuno.

At the latter stages of season 2019-2020, I felt that the defense was not working very well. My team started to concede 1-3 goals in some matches, but we managed to win PL, FA CUP and Champions Cup in the end.

It is the start of a new season and as of now i am trying to figure out how to make the defense better.

Still works on the the new patches? 13.3.3...
Have you tried to use this as a mid-table team as a new save?

Some people might be put off (myself included) that because your game is so advanced in terms of seasons that your team is well gelled and might not work as well in a new save which most people do when trying tactics.

Will keep an eye on the thread though!
