As the description says it is very similar to my 4-4-2 counter tactic but this one is more focused on defending and will result in less goals. It is best employed against teams playing with 5 midfielders, from Barcelona's 4-5-1 to a 4-2-3-1 and so on.
Shouts needed: "Get the ball forward" and "Clear ball to flanks" . If you find yourself struggling with possession it is worth "Pass to feet" and if the opposition is defending very high but you find yourself unable to counter "Pass into space" will give you an advantage here.
With this tactic it's best if the striker is fast, and good Off the ball movement. Select the playmaker and target man depending on the players that you currently have of course.
Please leave some feedback on how it worked for you. It did wonders for me.
