4-3-1-2 Gamebreaker - What to expectFueled by pure hatred of the dominance 4-2-3-1 tactics, I decided to try and break them. Using a patient, narrow, short passing possession based style. I have received staggering results with this one and I will share them with you.
This strategy marches down the centre of the pitch and a cold methodical way. Quick passes in a tight space with many options for the person in possession due to the amount of bodies in a small area. 90+ goals with West Ham after one season using this. Quite possibly a game breaker.
This tactic meets the philosophies of Play attacking football AND play possession based football without the use of wingers.

- High Shot count

- Return of the Target Man in Football Manager.
- Consistently punch above your weight.
