The tactic is rather simple. It looks to be aggressive both in and out of possession; when possession is lost the team will look to counter press to win it back as quickly as possible. Should the ball be won back in the transitional period then the team will continue to aggressively try to win it back, with instructions to engage as soon as possible and try to constrict the opposition to their own half, as well as to get stuck into tackles.
Once the ball is won the team will look to break quickly, focusing play down the flanks with passes into space and roaming wing backs looking to overlap a pair of inside forwards.
This tactic won the EPL with Wolverhampton Wanderers in season one, and earning Raul Jimenez the European Golden Shoe, with 30 goals.

I won the promotion. Good tactic. The only problem I had with yellow and red cards.
Almost half of the season. Everything looks very good. Very good defence. Only one defeat !!. My team played against Brest GK...
