I have tinkered with these tactics a lot over 2 weeks and seem to work great for all teams.

FM 2013 Tactics - 4-1-2-2-1 ToxicGem
These tactics might need some satisfactions if you don't have team players who can play in each others positions.

I have tinkered with them a lot over 2 weeks of playing with Eastbourne. They seem to work quite well in all situations and I hope they work if you try them.

  • Wingers swap for example (I do this because I believe it makes players harder to man mark).
  • Also you need a very good sweeper goalie so you might want to put him on defend instead of attack.
  • And one of the midfield has free role so you either need to take him off free role or have someone special in that position.

    Set up with Accrington Stanley. Very small Club. Had to get in loads of free transfers. It took a while but now the players are blending and with this Tactic i am 2nd in DIV 2 with a few games left. The Tactic is great.

    does this tactic work on lower league or weak teams??

    This is a great Tactic, nice work. I got Forrest promoted and had a mid table finish in the next season. Got the Man u job and won everything in my first season. Started a 2nd manager with Accrington and still doing well. Great for clean sheets.

    Awesome tactics, played with Arsenal, after nine game I have 11 points, and a score that is 10-13, and I even lost 6-0 to West Brom, and in Champions League after three games I got 3 points with a goalsore 2-6, couldn't ask for a better tactic.

    Never gonna use it agian, it's shite!

    Great Tactic, I was having problems with Forrest in the PL, Leaking goals and not scoring enough, I had lost 6 in a row and lost confindence in my own Tactic. Installed this and won 4 in a row including winning against Chelsea who were top of the League.

    This works great with my QPR team (one season played after a mid table position first season) w Cisse scoring lots of goal as ST.

    MLC tend to perform much better than MRC not sure why even w same player in position.
    Do you have any updates or improvement?

    This tactic worked well for me playing Chicago of MLS. It was pretty close to what they actually play, position wise, but I got better results with this.
