Put each player in individual training for his role in the tactic above; after October I normally change game preparation from teamwork to attacking movement, and general training between team cohesion and tactics.

    Hello, I don't use Opponent Instructions. I use this setting most of the time but when losing, needing to score or to not concede I alternate mentality between counter attack and overcharge and formation between structured and fluid, counter attack mostly structured. Normally I see how the game develops itself, and how each opponent tactic fits or not during the match.

    Do you use this tactic when you're trying to see out a 1 nil win or when you're trying not to concede
  • Feriboy's avatar
    It is the best tactic so far!
    Thank You!
