Football Manager 2020 Tactics - 4-1-4-1 Manni's Annihilation // FM20 Tactic
The Annihilation
This football style is based on vertical short passing tiki taka which is set up in a 4-1-4-1. The half back drops when the wing backs push up allowing them to have the freedom of attacking thus making it hard to counter attack against this system. His duty isn’t just dropping back but also creates chances when gained back possession. Wingers consist of an inside forward and inverted winger on the right which cut inside which draws defenders to them and allowing the wing backs the freedom to push high up the field and cross.

The Pros & Cons
  • Possession is always in your favor.
  • You will need a good penalty tacker as players would be fouled multiple times due to the pressure of amount of players arriving in the box.
  • Front three can easily get 15-20 goals especially your inside forward.
  • Vulnerability to 3-5-2,5-3-2,4-4-2 any of these formations give a tough time as they have enough players to play in the middle to stop our play which overruns the midfield. I would suggest you change passes to direct or more direct and play with width.
