    Default Kimbos 4-3-2-1 tried and tested in 10 leagues

    Hi guys this is my first tactic I created this with Nuneaton in the blue square north and lost 2 games all season got consecutive promotions all the way to the premier league in consecutive seasons winning the fa cup in league 2 and the europa league in league 1 and the championship, I also won the premier league in my first season with Swansea, arsenal and Newcastle, I tried it as Valencia and won the league first season and also tested it with Wolfsburg with the same success,I got my brother to try it out and he had similar success with Hyde .

    Rite now for the tactic

    4-3-2-1
    Attacking
    Short
    Committed
    Pressing no
    Offside trap yes
    Counter attack no
    Men behind ball no

    Player roles
    Wbk bpd bpd Wbk
    Bwm bbm bwm
    Apm apm
    Cmf

    And that's it I use this game in game out don't think anyone's posted this style of tactic but give it a try it's bought me hours of supremacy with little old Nuneaton

    I've found it so hard to obtain Ball Playing Defenders though, and my average center backs are costing me

    Used this, won Brazilian League and Copa Lib in season 1 with Internacional
    Retained League and reached Copa final season 2.

    Damiao scored 85 goals in season 1.

    I previously had tried other tactics and didnt manager the same feat, so cheers, nice one.

    Hi Kimbo,

    I have been using your tactic, the season I used it I won everything, but still didn't unlock Sugar Daddy.

    In a fit of rage I haven't played for a while.

    This season I'll try and post up some stats of how the formation has worked.

    One match I do remember (I took a screen shot) was playing Barcelona in the EURO CUP final. I won 2-1 (I'm Wrexham by the way), but I had 18 shots (13 on target) while they only had 3 shots (3 on target)

    I was previously playing a 4-3-3 formation, but the dropping back of the two outside forwards to AMF seems to really open up play and create a lot more chances.

    Overall, I love your tactic, so thanks for sharing!

    Slightly off topic but how much of a passing rating would you guys say makes a Ball Playing Defender ?

    14 ? 15 ? or more ?

    Hartlepool v Coventry in the championship (second season of game) and i couldn't beat them with 4-1-3-2.

    After switching to this tactic it was 4-0 at half time and after 3 subs at 60mins it ended 6-0 after switching to balanced, to reserve fitness.

    Sergi Samper 3min, 33min
    Benjani 7min, 53min
    Sergi Roberto 19min
    James Brown 66min

    61% possession.

    Luke James got a 10 rating despite not scoring.

    Next game was Millwall away. At half-time its was 1-3, Horner got injured. Subs made at 56mins. No goals since. Finished Millwall 1 - 3 Hartlepool.

    Its not a super tactic, it still needs refining dependent upon opponent tactics.

    Below is screenshot of starting lineup.

    "Hartlepool v Coventry in the champions league (second season of game)"

    How the hell did you get a League 1 club into the Champions League in the 2nd season? Assume you mean Championship.

    Anyway, nice result. I believe with your players though it is a perfectly viable result v Coventry and I'd like to see it tested more before really judging it.

    The best players in my midfield are my two wingers.

    Would playing them out of position mean this tactic becomes less effective for me?
