INTRODUCTIONFirstly, you should know that even if the tactic was tested with great success on lesser & bigger teams, it might not work with yours depending on the players you have as it is still FM & football
Solide defense & strong offense, that's the motto behind this tactique. As you will see soon enough while playing it, the goals come from anywhere ! Basically anyone is prone to scoring a couple each game. The drawback from that is that you might not have a striker with 80+ goals / season, but a strong forward will still be able to get 1/game on average. Add the that the throw-ins & the corners and you'll have the ability to turn anyone on your team into a 15+ goals/season wonder, regardless of their position on the pitch
There are no OIs involved (I don't use them, but of course, feel free to do so )
PLAYERSMost of the player profiles to look for are pretty standard. There are a few things you should look for however.
Volante : The trickiest for the end. You can actually play various types of players as Volante (pretty much any CM actually) more physique oriented ones, or more technical players, or even more defensive. There are a few key attributes in my opinion to make it work in this tactic. The two most important to me are Work Rate & Tackling. If a decent 12+ Tackling will do, you might wanna look for 15+ Work Rate. After that, obviously, stamina is a big part of the player & his passing, vision will have a lot to do with his performances. Bonus if he’s good at long shots.
CORNERSCorners are setup short, make sure that no one is setup as a corner taker for extra efficiancy
RESULTSWITH MONACO (in the far future)

There are no OIs involved, excuse me what is OI?
Na segunda temporada contratei vários jogadores jovens e até agora a tática esta arrasando os adversário
obrigado por essa bela tatica, estou usando junto com a lightbot
As you can see, I wouldn't qualify these results as "disastrous" by any means... and that's letting my ass man do the entire season, so relatively subpar.
