Based on that, I created a tactic for FM 2016.
The key components of this tactic are:
- A high pressure play of the 4 midfielders to force the opponent to play over the wings.
- Solid defending.
- Playing on own half we play in a slow and controlled pace, but when we're on the opponents half we start playing more direct. This is accomplished with individual player instructions.
Here are the team instructions:
I have to admit that I just created this tactic, so I will post some results in the near future. At first sight the tactic seems to work. I'm currently playing with Oxfort City, but I like you guys to give it a try and post your results with any other club.
