I Created this tactic with spurs, but it was a different variant of this tactic. Instead of an advance playmaker i had 2 attacking mezzalas and this is optional but you can put a dlp on defend to replace your cdm, i just prefer to use a dm on support as he provides extra support for the midfield where as a dlp stays back with the defence. I also had slightly more direct passing on instead of the shorter passing. Anyways, i was beating everyone by like 5-6 goals and even beat middlesborough 12-0.

Ignore the terrible results against chelsea, arsenal and liverpool. In the liverpool game i got 2 red cards and i got upset so went all out attack. Brang it back in the second leg: Won 5-0 and made it 7-6 on agg. Arsenal game was just a typical game of football manager. And the chelsea game wasnt any different, had 30 or so shots, dominated the whole game to concede a 40yarder to kovacic.
Also i'm currently working on a 3 striker formation. Would anyone be interested in testing the tactic for me with a various amount of teams? Dm if you're interested in it. I'm currently using it with napoli and this is how it's going so far

I just added it up and these are the total stats :
29 - games played
22 - conceded
Keep morale high and get mezzalas with high finishing to get the most out of this tactic (Not required, i was getting ndombele to score 5 goals in a game with 8 finishing) and if you can get tall mezzals they will score alot of headers as well.
