Football Manager 2020 Tactics - FM20 Tactic: JB 2-3-2-1-2 Break Through
For best results try using the following player types:

SK Goalkeeper with good passing, touch and vision.

CB Tall, physical defender with +12 speed and acceleration. Passing ability isn't as important as they'll be giving easy passes to the midfield.

DM Play with good passing, composure and decisions is helpful for this position. This player usually makes most pass attempts in matches.

CM Tactic uses 2 AP which help spray the ball around and keep possession, one of the player could also be changed to BBM or CM.

AM Good passing and vision are vital with dribbling and finished also desirable. This player will roam and join attacker in the penalty box along with taking more risks and dribbling and shooting more often.

PF and AF work better than tactics with one striker has they don't get isolated and work well together as a team. Check on the strikers profile to make sure they enjoy playing on the right or left etc.

    A note regarding the half back position. They are coded more adventurous when the team has possession and get slightly further forward than an anchor man. So they fetch possession from the keeper making a back 3/5 & then become more like a DM on defend duty. An anchorman will sit in front of the back two far more at all times.

    Fair question, it has one too many playmakers doesn't it. Half back or anchor man would possibly make more sense.

    Has anyone tried this with a half back instead of DLP for more security at the back? maybe for tough away games

    Nice tactic, great to see a variation from the ultra high lines commonly used. Love the mix of defend and support roles. Again, very rare to see used so well.

    I would calm down those wing backs quite a lot to WBS's & the no.10 a support role. Other than that this should have success at nearly all levels, it's beautifully balanced.

    Top job this.

    I really like your tactic. I'm having a very good start with my team. Do you have any tips that you can use before or during games or tweaks you can do when you play against big teams?
