Hi guys I just ended my Espanyol season using the latest 4-1-2-3 tactic and I lost the title in extra time due to Messi scoring the 1-2 for Barcelona at Tenerife. This was indeed as dissapointing as it sounds but I know that the tactic really got the maximum out of my average squad. I even managed to win from Barcelona on their own ground!. I found that if you put the 2 outer strikers on their oposed foot, you get the best out of them, the same thing goes for the MC's. Just to illustrate this: Joan Verdú got 14 goals and 15 assists and an average rating of 7.32 from the MCL position in 41 apps and Gaston Fernandez got 20 goals and 13 assists in 42 apps from the FCL position.
My result with Espanyol clearly show this tactic is effective for smaller teams as well. Thanks for the tactic Mr Hough, it's the best one out there
