These are my best 11 and the position they play
Gk Paul Rachubka

DMC Andile Jali (Hardworking DMC and holding/Ballwinner)
MC Bressan (advanced MC) roams to seek free space

Am i using the correct tactic?
Hey there shaneo,
Thanks for the info! Anyway i don't think my team has the quality to play like Barca but let me go ahead and try using your tactic if it will produce results. The real reason that i am using a counter tactic is that a tactical genius told me to do so because according to him, my Leeds team just doesn't have enough quality to use tactics like teams such as Barca. The players just don't fit well into the system according to him. Of course Barca has much better quality players and my team is just an underdog team or a mid table team.
yeah i know it probably wont work as well as it does with me but at least give it a go .
ive also changed all the player instructions aswell . theres pretty much no long shots, i ask the players to hold up the ball which allows team mates to get into better positions .
try signing midfielders with high passing , composure and concentration stats , well as good as you can get anywayz
