This is Rober's favorite tactic as it takes no hostages and goes forward chasing goals no matter the costs. That means you might win by a big margin (say 9-0), or you might lose.
Extreme gegenpress combined with 3 strikers and often attacking wing backs, no one is looking to stay calm here. We want goals!
The midfield has a CM and a Mezzala who both get forward as well, leaving the DM alone with the two ball playing CBs, as the wing backs also want to score!
There are some variations with different formations, but Kashmir is mostly a 433/451 with the above key roles.
Playing out of defence with short passing means you will need great players. In fact this tactic demands it all. Stamina and physics as you run all day chasing either the ball or a goal. High mental attributes to make the right choices under pressure. And of course technique to handle the tempo and tiki taka.
Top teams only.
Who plays like this: Zednek Zeman's teams.
