The big flaw is related to the spasmodic use of the wings, which makes the game monotonous, but thanks to this tactic, you will be able to express a fast game that is based on the wings, but will give great satisfaction, especially when the team will have started to become more familiar with the tactic.
this is my actual team:
As you can see (sorry i take a pic only at the end of the season) my players are all wonderkinds, and not even at the top of the evolution or experience.
Very lucky to have Corbo in Bologna that is possibly one of the best def wonderkid in the game.
Here you can see the results I have achieved using 4-2-3-1 ALL YEAR LONG, ALL THE SEASON, never changed module, at my second year with BOLOGNA FC.
I won against PSG (great match) and i lose against Liverpool, but with this team in evolution is yet a big thing!!
and this is the final position in serie A:
As you can see, i win with distance from the second.
These are the characteristics of the roles:
GK: sweeper keeper / attack, short passing
DCL / DCR .: Ball playing defend / defend, standard pressing, mark tighter, ease off tackles, dribble less, shoot less often.
DL / DR: Complete wing back /, support, standard pressing, mark tighter, ease off tackles, take more risk, more direct passage
MCR: Ball winning midfielder / defend, short passage
MCL: Box to Box midfielder / support, ease off tackles, shorter passage
AML: Winger / support, more direct passage, take more risk, ease on tackle
AMR: Inside forward / support, sit narrower, get further forward, more direct passing, ease on tackle
AMC: Attacking midfielder/attack, Hold up ball, shorter passing, take more risk, ease on tackle
STC: Pressing forward / attack, shorter passing, take more risk
IF THE TEAM IS TACKING TOO MANY CARDS, GO TO TACTICS - OUT OF POSSESSION - and change from GET STUCK IN to STAY ON FEET, or NOTHING!!!. But you ll see that the intensity of tact will go down.
SO Not big changes, except, for more ease on tackle on everyone, was tacking too many yellows cards, and the AMC is offensive now.
IMPORTANT!!!! The roles of the wings can be reversed depending on your players. ALSO I MADE MY WINGS SWAP; here you can see how to change the swap option
The workouts I follow them, I do not disappoint, my players, here is an example:
the training is very easy. just remeber to check your players, you ll see that sometimes they say that the training lacks in something ( defend, attack, ecc)
so you have to start that training. the most important thing is every week put "TEAM BONDING", and evrything that need to pump up match cohesion. speak once at moth to your players to make them play or train better.
BEFORE THE MATCH:
i use to give these Tasks to the player with all the opponents before the match:
is very important to pressing and marking, dont like to take too many scores. JUST BE VERY CAREFUL, cause sometimes with some lower level teams dont need to put all these marks, and put too many of contrast can make your team take a lot of yellow cards.
So far it's all, various improvements will be made over time, I'm open to suggestions or feedback!
Good FM everyone
