My goal is obvious, to make Ebbsfleet the best club in Europe. Beside that I want my team to play attractive football. So the last seasons I've been developing a tactic which displays the beauty of football.
I get my inspiration from this analysis of the Barcelona tiki taka.
Let's get into it!
My formation: 4-5-1. (4-1DM-2-3-1 or 4-2-3-1 WIDE)
Team instructions and individual instructions are set to keep possession.
As you can see in the analysis of Barca, the defending 4 play very close to the opponent's half.
The defending four stay in a flat line, while the midfielders are hassling for the ball.
In ball possession you see lots of triangles. Of course the better your players the better implementation. Creativity is a must! So is good vision.
A great thing about this tactic is the cooperation of the winger and fullback.
The wings are creating space on the flanks for the wingbacks.
You're not going to see lots of crosses, cause your team is going to look for shorter solutions to work the ball into the box.
Thank you for using this tactic and share your experiences.

I think i go back to the orgininal tactic as you use it, because after messing around with it, it seems to be worse.
Been testing a new version of this tactic will upload that soon.
@Xavilin You're right! I've saw that video aswell. The only thing is, i created a tactic with 3 defenders like cruyff explains in the video. But i get many goals against.
So i took the same style of football and transformed it to a 4-2-3-1.
Watch this video to understand it.
Ok no problem, I sorted training out. Since this is Tiki - Taka I wanted to try it with Barcelona. I've had a great pre-season. Now I am doing well in La Liga, winning lol. Tactic is good, but when do I use the tactic with DM and with AM? I'll upload some SS too later. And btw. we defend well, but we seem to be afraid of shooting on the goal, I mean we shoot, hit the target and most of the time is saved, we usually score a goal from 20 meters or of a rebound.
Works fine in 14.2.
Focus training on individual trainingroles. My assistant does take care of the teamtraining, pre-match main focus is Fitness.
I've been try different things out with this tactic. So i can't give you a good indication of the results.
Give me till tonight to get back with some results.
Btw would be great if you try it, which team you're playing?
