Default 4-4-2 | Offense Wins Games; Defense Wins Championships

Greetings from Antalya, Turkey

As I've been a big supporter of 4-5-1 formation, I decided to try a 4-4-2 formation this year and satisfied with the results.

First of all I'd like to talk about the formation. As you know there is a big tradition in basketball, "Offense Wins Games; Defense Wins Championships". I'm not gonna promise you more than three goals in each match, but I will promise you the trophies.

Formation





Let's talk about the instructions.

Defensive Midfielder: The player who interrups opposition attacks and starts our attack. He must be strong, good at tackling and his work rate should be high. It will be good if he is a tall player. Take a look at tall players when signing for this position. (Like Busquets, Fellaini, Kuzmanovic)

Midfielder: Heart of the team. He should be able to play in box to box role . It means that this player must can both play defense or offense. He should be fast, his work rate, first touch, passing and technique should be high.

Right Midfielder: The player who is more capable of defensive options must play here. He should use his right foot.

Left winger: One of the key players in the formation. More offensive than the other wing. It would be better for him to use his right foot because we want him to cut inside. (Like Stoch, Nani, Pedro, Quaresma) Howewer you can use a player who uses his left foot (Like Malouda)

Forward: The player on left in the formation. He will come deep to get ball, move ball to the flanks and create his own positions. You should look for fast, strong players and their finishing and technique should be high.

Striker: Target man. His strength, finishing and heading must be high. He would be a good poacher if his pace will be high.



Hope you enjoy my tactic.

cartmanez - I spoilered your large images to help our friends with low bandwith. If you hit "Edit Post" you'll be able to see how it's done for future reference.

Also, any chance you can attach the tactic here rather than provide a link which may expire?

Ok a quick one to start things off. I've struggled with tactics all through this version but this one could well be the nuts!

Great on the ball and even better off of it. Ive never had my players hassle and tackle and importantly win the ball back so much and its not energy zapping either. I played the last 7 games of my season with Wolfsburg with this and one 6 and lost the other. Still not sure how i lost that one game with the amount of chances I had. I even won one of the game after going down to 10 men very early on and won it convincingly 3-1.

I'm about to start the new season so will give some more feedback at the end but without wanting to jinx myself this is the best tactic ive seen so far. Its solid, its successful and its consistant.

Thanks for the upload!

You just saved my season! I downloaded this tactic after creating one that has more shots than the opposition whilst having more possession and CCC's, but always losing or drawing 0-0.

The change to this tactic has got my team scoring again.

Thanks.

I'll use it a lot more and give feedback with depth.

Trying this one out right now with Linfield in the Northern Irish Premier. Only 4 games into pre-season, lost 5-1 away to Partizan Belgrade in Champions League qualifier, but drew the home leg 2-2, so 7-3 on aggregate, which is actually pretty good considering the difference in the sides. Also beat Notts Co 2-0 and another N. Irish side 3-0.

Fairly early review I confess, but wanted to offer feedback whilst the novelty was still there. Hopefully I'll remember to let you know how it is as the season progresses.

When I've finished my turn on the succession game i'm involved in I plan on starting a Sunderland save. Might give this a go but switch the wingers around, so have the right side pushed up.

If i do i'll write a review on here.

That Man U result could have been down to the sending offs and not your tactic? Not that I'm doubting you, its just that you won by 1 goal, they had the same CCC's as you, and could have picked up a draw. But your possession and passing stats there are impressive. And then the Arsenal game, 59% on the road to Arsenal is unimaginable!
It looks really strange, I'm intrigued by your shape and I'm a little confused as to why you staggered your midfield?
EDIT: I also see that teams tend to lose discipline when playing you. Is that just luck, or does the tactic frustrate opponents into getting themselves sent off?

As gooner4life123 said, our team scored goals before the red card. The game against Arsenal was really sublime.

Opposition's lack of discipline is not just luck, but %50 of it. I often use touchline instructions like "Hassle Opponents" or use tight marking. That makes opposition players angry and lead to cards.

Thanks for comments.

just downloaded your tactic and am using it with dagenham and redbridge. on the download the target man is set to attack and the complete forward(left player in formation) is support. but on the screenshot of your formation the target man is set to support and complete forward is attack.

can you confirm what is the correct setup

cheers

The screenshot was taken from a different save game and it wasn't my usual choice. Sorry for it. It's up to you but you should set the complete forward to support.

I reccommend a narrow pitch size for this tactic. We have 2 central midfielders so we have to keep them together.

Btw, the main course is your player choices.

Solid tactic. I use it as my away/tough opposition tactic and it's worked out well. I've done some small changes to the set pieces but otherwise am running it as is.

As my home/weaker opposition tactic involves a great deal of closing down also they tend to blend well together.

As for pitch, smallest you can have by Europa regulations for me.
