The Narrow 4123
Notice that this is just a beta, just like the game
Personally, I use this set to suit my managerial preferences. In some saves, I focus on building a team that relies on quick breaks that uses players with good stats in Strength, Aerobic and Tactics. Here, I am more likely to use COUNTER and OVERLOAD. In some saves, i try to build a team that focus on on passing and possession, using players with good stats in Tactics, Ball Control and Attacking. Here, I will be more likely to use ATTACKING AND CAUTIOUS POSSESSION
Attacking, quick, direct with the aim to overload the opponents defence. We play with a really high line of defence and when getting into possession, the ball is quickly played onto our advanced.
Here we play attacking with lots of width with the aim to drag the opponent out of position and make them loose their defensive shape. Possession ?. Well this is the aim anyway. Its not your ordinary possession tactic that produces lots of passes or 75 % possession though. In fact, none of the versions do. To be able to use the most of the pitch we not only use lots of width but also the length of the pitch, hence the slightly deeper d-line than your ordinary possession tactic The aim is to approach the opponent with the ball and drag them out of position by player movement with AND without the ball.
Quickish, direct and one the counter. Here, the aim is to exploit an already open space rather creating one.
Here, the aim is to keep the ball by playing slow and compact, players evaluating every situation one more time before making an easy pass to a team mate. Here, its not about scoring many goal but to control events on the field that we otherwise would not be able to control. Never mind a poor shot on target ratio. It basically happens instead of us loosing the ball in dangerous positions
Central Defenders-Nothing special
Fullbacks - The better the team you are, the more complete they have to be. Almost like Box2Box Wingbacks
DMC - Anchorman/ Defensive Mid/Ballwinner
MCRight - Creative passer/Deep Playmaker
MCLeft - Hardworking Box2Box
FCRight - Inside Forward
FCCentral - Advanced FC/Poacher
FCleft - Inside Forward
Started a new save with Forest ( my 2nd with them in FM13) So far, so good
