The men of Eddie Howe form a 433 shape. From the front end of the pitch, they press high and hard with tight spacing between each line. The midfield five will move when the ball enters their zone, and the defence is still prepared to move above their line of scrimmage to follow deep runners. When used in central midfield, Joe Willock has been the most active in stepping up, although Bruno Guimaraes is still a fierce and active presser who steps up higher than what is generally expected of a "6."
This tactic was highly requested by my viewers so I had to make sure I got it right for you all. We tested with 3 teams he has managed and the results where outstanding.
Please check out the below video for the results, gameplay, and how we made this tactic. Any support is highly appreciated.
