I'd like to start a discussion about during match changes with certain tactics that I use depending on tactic AI lines up. Beside winning matches mine other goal is to create overloads and to unlock the golden zone and get most assists and defense unlock passes from there, which is contrary to long ball assists, crosses are fine since I scored a good amount of goals from crosses whcih were created by actually exploiting golden zone and making that runner free to do his thing, also transitional attacks which occur from time to time are also fine, but main goal for me is possession and goals with sturdy defense. Mine first tactic which I made from scratch by reading Lines and diamonds, reading Cleon's stuff about art of possession, and listening to Rashidi's YT channel is 41221, I'm quite proud of mine achievements with that tactic, I went unbeaten for a season with 2 draws and in second season I managed to win all of the games, but I noticed I struggled vs certain formations 4231, 4141(not all the time, tore RM in finals and they used 4141), 4132, these tactics posed quite a challenge on mine team and I had to really really micro manage team to get a wing from those, especially vs Man City 4231, now I could've camped and countered them, I have players for that, but I want to win using certain system. The system: https://ibb.co/ccCpFb basically this is mine system with minor PI's like ones for high block, medium block, dribble less for DM , Shoot less often for RB/LB and both MC's, sit narrower for AMR so he draws LB for WB(A) to run into space and GK distribution PI's During games I used TI's to adapt to certain treats and to exploit oppositions weakness, for example, droping D-line to normal vs Utd, passing into space, roaming from position TI's and changing RB role to WB(S) to counter Martia threat (utd played high press 41221 with def line standing off) so to avoid that high press I used roam, to exploit space they left I passed into space, and because I feared of Rashford Martial combo pace I went with normal D-line instead of slightly higher vs 442 I went with slightly deeper D-line, much wider, lower tempo shorter passing and patiently dragged their defense around the pitch until mine players found a hole in defense(IMO 442 is weakest formation vs good 41221) during matches I made changes to counter all sorts of threats and I can say game is really amusing when AI gets serious(like Pochetino for example) the highest threats I faced were 4231's and 4141's, Bayern gave me trouble with 2nd ECL game since they used 4141, I won in the end, but they choose to stand off and to wait for a chance to counter me, 4231's game lots of trouble to control midfield and exploit half spaces at same time, worst game of the season(game said so) was vs west Hams 4231 which used target man, I barely scraped trough them by going lower tempo shorter passing retain possession, roam from position and dropping deep, I basically lured them to me and forced them to close me down eventually which they did and I managed to score 2 times, city did different style of 4231 relying on creativity which was imo worst game, if I'm to be realistic that's only game in season I should have lost since they almost outsmarted min side, they had 2 CCC's which I think no one else had unless I had like 6, and that made me worry, in truth I could possibly change RPM(S) to CM(S) and use strong type mid to cover the ball and use him as secondary pivot in mid for higher up the pitch possession recycling, but I had a different idea. Idea: https://ibb.co/cUnjgG This is specific idea to counter 4231's Wide, I know 442 or any other 2 striker formation would work the best, problem is I don't have the players for 442 and I feel I can do mine style of play(which I described) better with 4231 Narrow, so that's why I made decision to use 4231 narrow, but min concern is it set correctly? Idea is that RB provides width and AM(S) opens space for him while CM(D) covers his runs, AP(S) should be able to work with them since he is positioned central, on other side WB(S) will bomb forward but not that often and Idea is that AM(A)(AMCL) uses the overload on right to find space which can lead him to goal scoring position, DLF(A) also has same goal as AM(A) but isn't involved as much in build up play as AM(A), so basically right side creates space for left side which scores, as how it will help me battle 4231 Wide? Well idea is to nullify their AML, AMC and AMR positions by passing trough middle and pressing their whole back side and exploiting the fact that they have only 2 CB(S) without proper DMC cover(I'm also considering dropping MC to DM strata and using HB RGA combo and changing wide AMCR and AMCL to playamker roles while switching AMC to AM(A)). So I want to hear opinions from other players about this idea of mine. https://ibb.co/bKgkMG Version with RGA idea 2nd Idea: the other idea is the one to break down 4141's and the formation which I'm considering to use is 4231 Wide, the reason for using these 3 formations is specifically min player choice, with these 3 formations I have the possibility of countering most of in game formations and mine players on the pitch can play those roles so it is easy for me to switch between formations and get that upper hand over basic formation setup. https://ibb.co/bXM8ab That's basically it, I'm confident in mine 41221 and I know with mine squad and quality in players I can out turn most formations, but after learning how mine 41221 works I want another challenge with 2 new formations for mine team. PS. I tried 4231 narrow with 2 MC's in setup versus Porto in friendly and we won it, but I'd like to hear 2nd opinion. Porto PKM: Arsenal v FCP 4231Narrow.pkm cheers and thanks for reading
Now i never share tactics as i tend to be of the opinion that just because it works for me doesn't meant it'll work for the rest of you, but due to the success with this one i thought i better share and see how others fair with it. As the tile says i managed to go 69 games unbeaten using this tactic, admittedly i did sacrifice the cups by resting players and using a second string side in them but even so still managed to reach the FA Cup semi final and Champions League Quarters losing to Tottenham in both during that unbeaten season. The link for the tactic which is shared on Sortitoutsi is below, there you will see a few screenshots including transfers made to show i didn't make massive changes to the Arsenal squad and that my team wasn't full of superstars. Below is the main starting 11 i used. Sanchez-DLF-At Griezmann-SS Ozil-AP-Su Cazorla-AM-At Coguelin-BWM-Df Ramsey-MC-Au Gibbs-FB-Au Koscielny-CB Mustafi-CB Bellerin-FB-Au Cech As you can probably guess the key to this tactic is the front four, get them playing well together and you should have a successful time using it. https://sortitoutsi.net/downloads/view/30934/vps-arsenal-unbeatables
