Hello guys! This is my first tactic ive ever posted on the forums so dont be too harsh =D
Reasons for creating my tactic the way I did
Well it first started when I was using Raikans Perfect 4-3-3 and it inspired me to play a similar type of football to that produced from that tactic. The only problem I had was that like last year and this year, I had and have some quality AMC's (for example Tim Cahill) and wanted to play them in their natural positions just behind the striker where as many 4-3-3 formations dont allow AMCs and rely on 2 center midfielders and a defensive midfielder, so I decided to push up one of the CMs into the attacking midfield position. Also another problem I had was that many of the bog standard 4-2-3-1 formations is that they generally only come with 2 defensive mids or two center mids, and I have Fellaini (who i feel plays better in DM) and Rodwell/Barkley (who i feel plays better in CM) so that is why I chose the to play with a DM, a CM and a AMC.
I have to credit Raikan as this tactic is based on his Perfect 4-3-3 tactic from last year and i have added my own person preferences.
To summarise I felt that my Everton team could have challenged for the title however I had a lot of injuries toward the end of the season which forced me to play players in positions unfamilar to them. Although this tactic did bag me around 2/3 goals a game and I tended not to conceed many goals (Note on the fixtures picture I only started to use my tactic after the 4-3 win over Wolves early in the season) and with a better... well taller defence im sure that the figure of goals will go down dramatically.
