  1. 4-2-3-1 Attack for Man City

    Since the Beta, I have been experimenting with varying tactics and teams. I'm a Man City fan myself and while you can use most of the downloaded tactics out there and be successful, it usually involved making significant changes to the team. After a while of playing around I have designed a 4-2-3-1 attacking tactic that not only takes advantage of our depth at F, but is solid defensively as well.

    Here is my current lineup.

    Team Instructions. I do not use a playmaker or target man. The 3 AMC's filter plenty of chances to the poacher and if he misses, they are around for the followup.

    Results after 14 games

    **EDIT**

    For individual play instructions, I adjusted my MC's a bit. They are set to rarely take deep shots and Garcia's mentality is set all the way to defensive, with Toure sitting slightly more defensive than normal. Basically both of them use really short passing to control the ball and when they get it to the AM's, they are all set to use direct passing. This leads to some nice CCC's for Tevez streaking up the middle. Silva and Nasri are set to swap as well. Both are basically interchangeable in the tactic.

    Offensively, there are really 2 thought processes here. The first is to retain possession. The second is to quickly take advantage of opportunities when presented. Often, when I have played possession based tactics, there are many missed opportunities to score because the Striker passes back defensively. Though my midfield plays short passes to retain possession, once they send it to the attackers, they are looking for direct passes to the goal. This has led to quick counter attacks and some really nice 4 man breaks.

    I have been playing this game since around 1998 and this is the first time I have uploaded a tactic(Should be posted soon) and please let me know if you have any questions or feedback.

  5. Have you made any changes to the settings of the players or are you using the ones presented by the TC?
