I tested this tactic with Arsenal and in 1 successful season of testing, I won the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and came Runner Up in the FA Cup.

Aim of Tactic

The aim of this tactic is to play fast, flowing football while scoring lots of goals but being solid at the back too. I believe I have succeeded in doing this with this tactic.

In 38 league games, I won 31, drew 4 and lost 3 - scoring 91 goals and conceding 24 in the process. The goals also get spread out a lot throughout the team, with my top goalscorers being Marouane Chamakh with 18, Cesc Fabregas with 17, Robin Van Persie with 16 and Samir Nasri & Theo Walcott with 11 each.

An important part of this tactic is possession. The side usually had about 55-65% possession in games, but it wasn't key. There were plenty of occasions where we didn't have the majority of possession but we created plenty of chances and scored plenty of goals meaning we won majority of games. On average the team had 19 shots per game and 6 CCC per game - meaning there were plenty of chances to score goals and win games.

Layout of Tactic - Player Roles

The team layout is very unorthodox, but is also quite balanced in the same instance.

Player Roles

RB - Full Back - Automatic
LB - Full Back - Automatic
CBL - Ball Playing Defender - Defend
CBR - Central Defender - Stopper
DM - Defensive Midfielder - Defend
MCL - Box to Box Midfielder - Support
AMR - Winger - Attack
AML - Inside Forward - Attack
AMCR - Advanced Playmaker - Attack
STL - Deep Lying Forward/Poacher - Attack

The striker position is interchangable between a Poacher and a Deep Lying Forward because of the Advanced Options. They are very similar and depending on the striker you have they will be better off in a different role e.g. RVP = DLF but Marouane Chamakh = Poacher.
