I watched the English game on netflix and wondered weather I could build a 2-3-5 tactic. I build a country called British Isles and put them 2 main teams in out of the show Darwen FC and Old Etonians. The tactic is very attack which is an advantage in getting goals but also concedes quite a few. While researching the tactic I found it has 2 full backs, 3 half backs and 5 in offensive area of the pitch which leads me to this tactic. All competitions as well as the clubs and nation start at 1 reputation which means the league is ranked 379th in European rankings.
During the save my three targets are:
1) Take the British Isles League to the top ranked in European football playing a 2-3-5 tactic
2) Dominate European football playing a 2-3-5 tactic
3) Winning the World Cup with the British Isles national team playing a 2-3-5 tactic.
Good luck.

Very interesting tactic that, but isn't it a bit boring playing the same team every week? Respect to you for keeping it up for an entire season!
Absolutely agree with Zed. It must be quite monotonous at times. The European aspect of this will be the interesting factor.
due to unforeseen database issues i wont beable to continue this save but will be using the tactic in another save
