Good afternoon all,
This is my first crack at uploading a tactic so please be gentle , this tactic has took me the best part of 5 seasons to get how I want it.
I wanted the team to want to get the ball down and play, with as many people in the opposition half as possible available for short passes, it makes it a lot easier to carve teams open in my opinion, it also helps with the relentless press if more people are high up the pitch.
The tactic does have set piece exploits set up although they only contribute a small portion of the goals, the RPM takes both corners and the LM takes left side throws, RM takes the right side.
In terms of specific PI's, I recommend adding shoot less to the RPM and the BWM as they tend to get a lot of room and end up shooting from all sorts of distances, I use De Bruyne as the RPM so have left this for now.
SK - The usual, has to be able to distribute well but also the usual... goalkeeping.
CD - Ideally right foot on right side and left on left, have to be great defenders, with some passing ability ideally 12+
L - Good defender, even better midfielder, needs to be able to bring the ball out comfortably, passing and composure 15+
WM - Right side = right foot and left side = left foot. These guys provide all width, have to be great crosser, good finishing helps too as they steal in at the back post quite regularly for tap-ins.
BWM - Sits slightly deeper than the midfield, usually picking the ball up off the Libero, passing/vision/composure/tackling essential.
RPM - Think... KDB
AM - I pondered a few roles for this position, settled on old school! AM's will provide lots of goals and assists, think Dele Alli.
AF - Finishing, composure, off the ball, anticipation. This guy will get you a LOT of goals. Tests done
Real Betis - 2nd in first season, won everything after that for 3 seasons.
Man City - left Betis, took City job, won everything first season there except Carabao as played u23's.
Thank you for reading, I hope this works for you as it has done for me, if it doesn't well I appreciate the feedback.
