Football Manager 2020 Tactics - FM20 Tactic: 5-2-1-2 Winning Gegenpress
This is a good solid tactic tested on man utd.

It relies heavily on hard wing backs for assists who can often get tired so it's advisable to have a few good wing backs in the squad.

The tactic is an attacking one but with a solid defence.
- Very little goal conceded in winning EPL first season.
- No goal consed in Europa league.
- The midfield are comfortable in short passing but excel in long defence splitting passes so midfield with high passing attribute is advisable.
- The most important aspect of the tactic is its desire to press and win balls on the front foot enabling attacking play quickly.

    Great tactic! In the second season for Sassuolo championship. For Leicester in the first season of the fight for the championship. This tactic is a discovery for me.

    one thing that worked well for me was to re train fast attacking wingers into complete wing backs with this tactic they will then have a lot of space in front of them to run into with the ball. These wing backs will also get a lot of goals and assists

    Any one else tried this yet? I reckon if it's for Man Utd, only another solid CB is needed to sign to make this work, well and another backup striker since theres only Martial, Rashford and Greenwood.
