So my inspiration for this save comes from Diego Simeon's Atletico Madrid.

I have always admired the way in which Simeone sets up his team. Atleti are never a dull team to watch. Simeone opts for disciplined and structured approach as opposed to the open free flowing all out attack types, like your Barcelona's etc.

I think we all agree how frustrating it is to concede goals on FM. This is why I have decided on creating a more organized and defensively secure team likened to Simeone's Atletico.

I also admire the simplicity of the 4-4-2 for Althleti. With this formation, Simeone proves to the world that you don't have to conform to the more "up to date" style which involves possession based football and 5 midfielders. This seems to be the direction in which football is going for some, however the results speak for themselves. Atletico have continued to challenge beating both Real & Barca to the La Liga Title, and knocking out Chelsea and Arsenal in both European Competetions.
