Football Manager 2021 Tactics - Jorge Jesus 4-4-2 Tactics at Flamengo
So I watch last year JJ (Jorge Jesus) success with Flamengo very carefully, and now although in real life his tactics are not working so well with Benfica team, I recreated his ideas from last year to FM21 and I tested it with both Flamengo and Benfica. Now you can see the more usual starting 11 on both teams, a standard Flamengo team where I only bought players for depht, and Benfica where I sold and bought a few players who could suit the tactical ideas of the Mister.

The ideas from JJ are very simple. Control possession, work hard, solid defence and a dynamic and paced attack.
The back 4 are really solid, full back usually physically strong, tall center backs, the two midfielders are always two balanced midfielders who are solid defensively both also have the physicall and technicall attributes to distribute and create chances (for example Witsel), two creative and paced inverted wingers, a false 9 who is basically the number 10 who drop in the field to create a number advantage and also appears to score goals, and last bute not least a striker who is paced agressive who looks for the space created by the false 9 and explores the back of the opp defence.

The team and player stats:

The results:

As you can see I have achieved the perfect recreation not just the Mister's ideas but also the players output on the field, with great results and great numbers.
I'm a big JJ fan and I hope you enjoyed this recreation, thank you for all your support and enjoy the game! :D

    Good tactics, somewhat reminiscent of Jupp Heynckes' Bayern Munich in the 2012-13 season.

    Hey mate, I've been using your tactic with 4 different clubs. With Arsenal-works so good(Aubameyang got golden ball haha) Osijek(one of the best 4 croatian clubs) - works okay, Lille - didn't get the title because of P$G but it was awesome and now Southampton.

    I've been wondering... which training should I use to get my player familiar as much and as soon as possible with tactic? when they do get familiar with tactic, what training do you recommend for this tactic to work perfectly?
    Also, do you recommend having fullbacks on attack (since IW's are on support duty)? Would you recommend also to change F9 to Deep lying forward? I haven't tried that yet, what do you think about it?

    Insanely good tactic, 3 straight promotions and a 3rd place in my first season in the Prem with Queen's Park, back to back Challenge Cups, 2 Sottish cup finals, one of which I won. To do so well with mediocre players, its a 10/10 tactic, probably one of the best I've used, and it overtook what my own tactics as my primary. Top work mate
