FLUID 5-1-2-2 "Defensive" by ZION

I use this FM 2019 tactic when playing against superior teams and I'm the underdog. It's fluid but essentially defensive.

Football Manager 2019 Tactics - FLUID 5-1-2-2 "Defensive" by ZION
Worried about losing or suffering too many goals? The team you are about to play plays at home and is obviously superior to you? Even you do not like reloading the game when you lose or draw because you seem to cheat?

So maybe I have the form for you: 5-1-2-2

This tactic is functional, difficult to penetrate and implements a fluid, non-defensive game.

It's one of the three modules I use in my league, along with the [img]a-fm19-tactic-4123-allegri-style-by-zion.html[/img] and 4231, which you can find in the tactics download section. With these three tactics I am getting the following results:

Here are the roles:

GK: sweeper keeper / attack, standard pressing

DCL / DC / DCR: Ball playing defense / defend, standard pressing, mark tighter, ease off tackles standard passing, dribble less, shoot less often

WBR / WBL: Wing back / car, standard pressing, run with ball, more drift, take less, take more risk

DM: Ball winning midfielder / defend, mark tighter, shorter passing

MCL: Box to box / support, get more forward, run more with ball, take more time, take more risk

MCR: Deep lying playmaker / support, run wide with ball, shorter passing

STCL: Pressing forward / attack, more direct passing, take more risk

STCR: Advanced forward / attack, more direct passing, take more risk

it is a "defensive" module.
Very good also to make the turnover to the players. Remember that my tactics are designed for middle-class teams, for all those who want to grow the favorite team and bring it to the top of international football: D

So far, everything is working well.

Good FM everyone!

    yes, bellidne cause i use three different tact to get where i am with that kind of team, dont like to use just one tact, is also very useful for turnover. keep in mind thta my tact are created not for top clubs, but for middle-low club. with a big team after a while become one of the best in the world is very easy
