Cherifi Ali's 3-2-1-3-1

A FM14 tactic that works well for my Barcelona side but also with various weak teams I tried. Please comment if you try it.

FM 2014 Tactics - Cherifi Ali's 3-2-1-3-1
I created this tactic for my Barcelona team. I don't know if it will be useful for you, but when I use it with Barca or a weak team it always gives me good results.

Please if you try it, leave a comment to tell me what is wrong and give me suggestions.
Thank You!

Update 18 March

Today I present a new version of my tactic, it's just an improvement from my old tactic, but it is now more efficient. This new version is much more suited to future generations! It means even if you use this tactic in 2020 it will still be effective.

The goal in this tactic is to offer attacking options without weakening the control and possession. Players are perfectly positioned to pierce between the opposition defense thanks to their play called the limit of 18 meters. The other point that is very advantageous is the positional recovery when the ball is lost, so you have a line of 5 players ahead and change positions in the same rhythm and the same spot on the field. Add the usefulness of your defensive winger who provides outstanding support to offer an option on the left side while the right side is closed.

    how does this defend against crosses and wide play? This isn't a problem in the possession/work ball into box oriented La Liga, but how does this work in England and continental Europe?
