In two seasons I developed my Everton side into a top 5 side. We can consistently compete with the big boys and came second to Arsenal in second season. So naturally we are starting to face parked bus teams more to a point where our original simple direct 4-4-2, has become less effective. It's 3rd season preseason and I'm trying to develop a tactic that can break down stubborn defences better. A lot of teams started using 3 central defenders against me, Italian anti - football Catenaccio style. So my idea is what if get a central beast of a targetman and surround him by 2 poachers on both sides. I got Andrea Petagna who is probably the best young targetman after Giroud. Anybody tried something similar? My plan is to get the ball to him quickly so he can boss around the defenders and then with his good passing (14) he can pass quickly to one of the poachers/advanced forwards to whom I can give PI of run wide with the ball.
