Hi guys,
it's time for another emulation of an iconic manager, Brian Clough, the manager of Nottingham Forest, European Cup (now known as UEFA Champions League) winner in 1978 and 1980. To emulate this tactic I read some sources that I linked below. Here you can find a brief analysis of that great Nottingham Forest while in the video on my youtube channel you can also find some highlights of those great seasons, how I created the tactic in game, stats of two seasons, one with Nottingham Forest and one with Juventus and in-game highlights.


Nottingham Forest: won Premier League and FA CUP, scored more than 100 goals dominated XG and possession.
Juventus: I won Italian Cup and finished 2nd in Serie A behind AC.
