I am currently managing Leeds United. I'm using a direct counter wide 451 formation. I managed to tweak my budget and i have the following tranfers

Darwin Quintero
Ahmed Soukouna
Andile Jali
Dare Vrsic
Teko Modise
Adrian Aldrete

Adam Clayton
Ramon Nunez
Lloyd Sam
Billy Paynter

These are my best 11 and the position they play
Gk Paul Rachubka
DL Adrian Aldrete
DC Darren O' Dea
DC Patrick Kisnorbo
DR Paul Conolly
DMC Andile Jali (Hardworking DMC and holding/Ballwinner)
MC Bressan (advanced MC) roams to seek free space
MC Jonny Howson/Dare Vrsic (deeper MC) roams to seek free space
AML Teko Modise/Ross McCormack (pacey Winger/complete wingforward)
AMR Robert Snodgrass (pacey Winger/complete wingforward)
FC Darwin Quintero (deep FC/smart Or pacey poacher)

Am I using the correct tactic for my team?
there is no correct tactic. but why do you play counter ?
Well i play counter because some of my players especially the defenders are somewhat lacking in mental attributes. So what tactic would you suggest then shaneo insaneo?
well i use my own tactic that ive created. might not work the same cause im managing barcelona
but have a look anywayz .

Hey there shaneo,

Thanks for the info! Anyway i don't think my team has the quality to play like Barca but let me go ahead and try using your tactic if it will produce results. The real reason that i am using a counter tactic is that a tactical genius told me to do so because according to him, my Leeds team just doesn't have enough quality to use tactics like teams such as Barca. The players just don't fit well into the system according to him. Of course Barca has much better quality players and my team is just an underdog team or a mid table team.
yeah i know it probably wont work as well as it does with me but at least give it a go :D .
ive also changed all the player instructions aswell . theres pretty much no long shots, i ask the players to hold up the ball which allows team mates to get into better positions .

try signing midfielders with high passing , composure and concentration stats , well as good as you can get anywayz
I'll try to do that. Do you have a link where i can download your tactic?
nah i havnt put it up anywhere and dont really plan to.

What are the specific player instructions that you gave the players?
