Quicksta's Unbeatable 4-1-2-2-1 - Over 4 Goals per game avg.

This is the best tactic i have ever created. It can be a 4-1-2-2-1 or 3-2-2-2-1 See pictures below.

I used this tactic with Man Utd and Lazio and found it to be amazing.

The Box to Box mid is very important and both wings need to be inside forwards.

I scored 158 Goals with Man Utd in the Premier League at an avg of 4.15 goals a game.
Playing the 4-1-2-2-1

The first season we won everything so easy.

The with Lazio the squad was not a strong so i focused on the league and won it easily and without Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
Playing the 3-2-2-2-1

I have created many tactics and never had results like these.

    I tried some of the others (Rauz, Zion, etc) and I found most consistent success with this tactic.

    Started a AC Viseu save on the most recent fm (19.3.5? I think). So a pretty bad/average second league Portugal team, for those asking if it works on non super teams. Won Portugal second league in the first year. Came in second in the Portugal premier league in year 2. Came in first in year 3. No save scumming or editor stuff either (although I did use fmse to check out CA and PA, but no editing). I'd say my average ca in the starting lineup for the 3 seasons has been about 110? Right now in year 4, specifically, it's about 120. Year 1 it was closer to 100.

    Now in my fourth season and I'd say I'm pretty confident against any Portugal team that isn't FCP. Where we are evenly matched (played twice this season already, blew a 2-0 lead in the 80th minute to lose in et for the supertaca and then tied 1-1 @fcp where they scored in 85th). In year 3 I got to the knockout stage in the champions cup where I lost 2-1 over two games to eventual runner ups Juventus and I'm back in the knockouts again, playing Liverpool this time.

    Although I will say my team gets absolutely blasted by top tiers. Like I had Man U in the group stages this season and they beat me up 5-1 over 2 games and it wasn't even that close. Last season had Chelsea and it was 4-1. FCP has owned me badly until this season. Sporting until last.

    Stats: 167 games, 111 wins, 27 draws, 29 losses (66% win pct).
    336 goals for, 163 goals against. 2.0 per game, .97 per game against.

    Stats have improved as the career has gone on. Remember I haven't been loaded with talent and been roster building every season. I've had a lot of trouble finding players for the tactics. Even now I can't find a decent striker, even though I have 2 wonderkids there. You get a crap load of shots up but I never can find someone who puts them on target. Most of my goals come from the insideforwards shooting outside the box.

    I let my assistant run training. When I didn't, everyone would get injured all the time for whatever reason.

    @Quicksta: Where are you??? Need your help! :-D

    @Fizzlebuns: I'm trying your solution, it seems to work ... But in small steps.
  • Fizzlebuns's avatar
    It works with a couple tweaks. You can't rely on the Long Throw glitch anymore, but I've had significant success with Dulwich Hamlet by changing the BTB to a Mezzala, the DPL to DM, and changing the Instructions to Work Ball Into Box. For better teams, I change to Cautious and make the 2 CMs BTB and BWM.

    This tactic is insane. Playing it with Liverpool. In the Champions League i've beaten Dortmund twice 5-0 and 0-4, won twice against Juventus 0-2 and 5-1, the last one with my B-squad since I already won the groupstage with 23 goals and conceed only 1.
    In the league i am unbeaten in first place, 16 played 14 wins and 2 draws when I took some risks with rotation of players. I've scores 47 goals and conceeded 11.
    Great tactic.
    Good on ya! Thumbs up!

    I made two teams with RB Leipzig , I bought some wonderkids , and I conquer everything in the first year , won the bundesliga , europa league with amazing 10-0 on Marseille , and the cup.

    I use 3 on back , 2 wb , and the monster Timo Werner

    this tactic is brilliant maybe a bit to brilliant though, First season with aston villa we won the championship and also the f a cup shockingly beating man city and chelsea. the 2nd season and first season in the premier league we won the premier league, league cup, Europa league. I did make some very good signings after gaining promotion but im not sure if we should win all that we did, so like I said maybe the tactic is too good.

    Been using this tactic with Wrexham in the Conference....started in 19th in October and now up to 4th with 7 games to best performance came against Braintree where I only won 7-0 but I had 50 shots and 25 on target....
  • sotiroski's avatar
    For which update? I'm playing on 19.1.1 and it's going too bad.

    Works brilliant! Won the Dutch league in my first season with newly promoted Fortuna Sittard and got knocked out in the cup in the quarter finals on pens. Hit the woodwork 5 times that game. Those games happen but overal, the throw ins and corners seem to work exceptional. I put my Advanced playmaker as receiver of the short corner, since he has a decent enough vision and passing ability to move the ball in a good area. My main striker went on to score 28 league goals. Tweaking with the DLP from time to time, switching between defensive and support. The wingers were outstanding as well, one of them bagged 12 goals and 6 assists. Even though the tactic states that playing with IF's is a must, I tried for the second half of the season with a W (s) and a IF (s) and they just kept performing. Although a lot of goals came from corners and such, I scored a fair amount of goals from open play. At the back I'm still quite vulnareble, but I believe this has to do with the poor stats of my defenders, rahter than the tactic. Agains topteams such as Ajax and PSV managed a few draws and wins. Overall very, very pleased with this tactic. My guess is, just let the tactic play out itself and if results aren't going your way, try to tweak with the attacking roles, mainly to put the opposition on the wrong foot.

    so I tried this tactic with Bordeaux, had a ligue 1 game against Monaco, I switched to an alternate tactic for the start of the game to play with caution. I was down 2-0 at half time. half time I switch back to this tactic and won the game 3-2!! this tactic works, and if you have problems with short corners? add a second routine that involves mixed corners. its not a big deal.
  • OohAhCantona's avatar
    @franklpool1 - Not sure what you are talking about, I gave this tactic a run and found the corners profoundly disappointing. I dislike short corners in reality, and they were impotent at best. I didn't get a single scoring chance, the ball never made it into the box despite getting quite a few corners.

    win the league with galatasaray without no lose and knocked out in semi by city
  • ilyes92300's avatar
    hello this tactic works with any team or only big team ?
  • franklpool1's avatar
    By all means tho if want win the game by cheating go for it !!!
  • franklpool1's avatar
    For starters the tactic is not good. It exploits a bug that the match engine has!! How many times you score from throw ins an corners is ridiculous an unrealistic. If you watch 3D match like I do on just key highlights you will see. Rarely do you score from open play!! In my eyes that is not how to play the game, I want to win games by playing football not a set piece cheat. Read forums an you will see 2019 match engine is terrible!! All goals come from crosses an set plays very unrealistic!! Just like this tactic in real life teams would pick up on these set plays an throw ins but they don’t at all. Try taking the set plays off an playing for set play doesn’t work at all. Bk to 2018 for me terrible game an unrealistic!!!!
