Quicksta's 4-3-2-1 Attacking Tactic // Works Wonders!

This is my 4-3-2-1 tactic with 3 central midfielders. 2 box to box which covers the DM and AMC positions. Works great for my first Season at Man Utd.

Football Manager 2020 Tactics - Quicksta's 4-3-2-1 Attacking Tactic // Works Wonders!
Please find my 4-3-2-1 Attacking Tactic for FM20 Beta that was great with Man Utd.

Only 1/2 a season of data and will be updated as I go.

The only time I change from attacking to counter is if I'm away to a big team (Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea).

Overview of the tactic. Very simple with the goal of overloading in the centre of midfield. 2 Box to Box midfielders work great as they cover the DM and MC positions and the Advanced Playmaker covers MC and AMC.

The 3 pictures above show the way we want to play with and without the ball. Without the ball the AML and AMR are also set to cover WBR and WBL positions to help with defence.

Some of the highlight scores from my first full season.

The final table at the end of season 1.

Thanks for trying and let me know your feedback.

    @markey472 - I would use them if they are working. I honestly have not tried them yet but i will now and will let you know. Maybe we will find an improvement.

    Good results with the worst Vanarama National League South team (Tonbridge Angels) Media pronostic, 22th, first season 8th without any recruits. My best players are my midfielders.

    Colek, you are very wrong if you think United is the most OP team in the PL. City, Liverpool and even Arsenal are much better in FM20

    @Quicksta playing vs chelsea i try use direct counter-attack and i won 3-2 with everton nex time vs a good team should i use counter-attack , fluid counter-attack instead tiki-taka or cautious only?

    you won the league with the most OP team in the league, wow this tactic must be working!

    @Quicksta what about Touchline Instructions and Lead Team Talk? You also assign to assistant?

    Hi Markey472 - Yes i ment cautious.
    Currently im just letting my assistant setup the OI as im only 1 season in.
    More improvements will be coming during the next week or so.

    what do you use on opposition Instructions ?
  • markey472's avatar
    "I change from attacking to counter" you mean cautious ?

    Thank you for answering mate !! :)

    It will work with a BWM but not a DLP.
  • Dite De Molay's avatar
    Nice as always mate !! Been fans of your works for long time :)

    Only one question tho.. will it still works fine if i change one of the BBM into DLP or maybe BWM ?? Or it is mandatory to follow each of the role on your tactic strictly
  • FerozKazy's avatar
    Wow.. while the tactic looks fantastic and I have actually used a slightly tweaked version of your tactic with Milan in FM19(with great success) the results are too unrealistic. :) It's hard to have my beloved United win every game in FM and lose every game IRL. Brain wires get jumbled up. :(

    Thanks man. Presentation looks better already.
  • Quicksta's avatar
    Fixed these up now. Hope you enjoy.

    I think it's the first time I see this "phone camera" screenshots in a post here. If possible, please take them properly with your next update.
    Btw, quite impressive result vs Basak!
