Going strikerless for my Real Sociedad 'B' (started unemployed) save.

I've set this team up to
- Defend High
- Press from the top
- Intricate passing with the odd direct ball when opened up
- Get the early goal

With the above ground rules laid out, setting the TI is pretty straight forward,
- Flexible team shape
- Playing at a much higher tempo
- Play narrow, making the one-twos easier

**tried uploading a video but it failed**

Anyways, match stats below

409 passes, out of which 27 were key passes, 5 CCC created

Pretty good stats for me, i feel, for a team of Real Sociedad 'B' stature, considering the squad's made up of young players. Good movement, defend and attack as a unit. For the 3 games so far, I've scored before the 10min mark is up and this advantage allows me the freedom to slow the pace down, control the game, keep possession or sit back and hit the opponent on the counter

Stats from other friendlies

The only disadvantage of this tactic is fitness, due to its high tempo and frequent closing down of opponent. Other than that, this is one of the better 'Strikerless' formation I've played with.
