Purest Bielsa Ball 3331 or 3313

You see a lot of tactics trying to replicate Bielsa at Leeds but very few of them really manage to emulate the players versatility and positioning in the game.

Football Manager 2020 Tactics - Purest Bielsa Ball 3331 or 3313
Leeds United play attacking high pressing football with versatile players surrounding a so called quarterback in Kalvin Phillips, Mateusz Klich and Stuart Dallas drift into central and wide positions depending on whether they are in attack or defence.

This is very difficult to replicate in FM20.

To do this I have played them as wide midfielders with a playmaker duty with Phillips as a defensive centre mid going forward in attack or dropping back to help in defence.

    Right Lads, having re- watched Leeds games this season i have made a new more realistic tactic if you want to have a look at that.

    Average at best as a home tactic and very poor as an away tactic. Tried tweaking it but it changes the dimension of the formation if you.

    That looks absolutely ridiculous and insane, what crazy individual thought this up? ...Oh right. Bielsa.

    That said, have you tried it in-game as well? Does it work? Or is this just theorycrafting?
