Helmut Posted November 20, 2020 Share Posted November 20, 2020 (edited) As a big fan of fast and direct type of play, i tried to combine the tips from @OhhScottySinclair topic with more wing-focused play and higher defensive line. My inspiration :https://community.sigames.com/topic/394126-the-rise-of-diego-simeone-4-4-2/?tab=comments#comment-10626426 Set pieces were not set by myself, taken from Zealot tactic, presented here: https://community.sigames.com/topic/534731-fm21-nostradamus-4-1-2-3-tactic-by-zealot/ At the start i would like to mention, that my main idea was not to present the tactic, that would give the most possible points, but giving decent result with a very direct and defensive-minded type of play. For sure some stats may look a bit ridiculous, for one of the best teams in the league, for example : From the other side, it was balanced by the benefits it brings : : The formation is strikerless, like in the original topic by @OhhScottySinclair, with some changes on the left wing (removing Koke emulating wide playmaker) and at the front : helmut-simeone-counter.fmf Even with the higher defensive line it gives enough defensive stability with a shortened distance between expected interception zone and opponent's goal. As you may have noticed, the intereceptions are comming not as a tackling result, but mostly from interceptions in the middle zone of the pitch, thanks to a full team engaged in a defensive phase of play and strikers playing very close to the midfielders. I've resigned from a part of speciic PI for classic CM(s), but gave them the strictly precised roles. OI were assigned by the Assistant Manager, a good staff member can also provide some help in choosing starting mentality. I've set cautious as default, but especially at home against more defensive oriented rivals, you can also set positive or even attacking. Italian Cup Final, example of how the game flows: Juventus v Napoli 0-2 (final Pucharu Wloch 2020-21).pkm Edited November 21, 2020 by Helmut Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
