We all know that narrow formations worked a treat on FM2010, and this seemingly has been fixed for FM2011. I decided to start as Inter Milan last night and came up with an out of the ordinary tactic to try and make work. I set everything out as I thought it should be and have changed nothing since. Well my results so far have been;

Inter 1-0 Roma Despite being outplayed for 119 minutes.

Inter 2-1 Atletico Madrid Again i only had half the total shots Atletico had and i only managed 3 on target.

Inter 3-0 Cagliari I dominated this match as expected.

Now you might say I am Inter Milan so in fairness should be winning these games but the way i have been outplayed in the 2 cup finals, I feel i should have been absolutely owned. So what I am wondering is, is this tactic well balanced in defense and attack allowing me to be outplayed yet still win games. Or is this tactic exploiting the match engine in much the same way it would have done on FM2010?

The tactic it self is a 3-2-2-2-1 and looks like so;

A download link can be found below, what i would appreciate is if people could download and try this tactic out. Ofcourse what I am after is some opinions of other Football Manager players. Any feedback offered is much appreciated.

Once you have completed the download you will need to extract the file using winrar or an equivalent program. Place the file;

Thanks again.
I use an interchangeable 4-5-1 formation, with my wingers acting as forwrds and my full backs as wing backs and overlapping. It allows my team to keep the ball on the floor and outpass most opposition in league one, although I came unstuck at Huddersfield, going down 6-0. most of the time though I don't concede and normally win by the odd goal.
I usually use 4-4-2 but sometimes 4-3-3 or 4-5-1. With wingers attacking on 4-4-2. in 4-3-3 all strikers all out attack and full backs attack and midiflders defend. in 4-5-1 wingers attack full backs also and striker.
In my opinion tactics take real credit using them in low level teams! Teams like Inter can even play 5-5-0 and players like Sneijder can even play DC and perform well!
