Donkey Fly's Attacking 4-4-2


My first tactic for FM11H after losing 2 pre-season and 1 at start of the season badly I decided to make my own. I have the game for iPod Touch. Still in beta really but seems to be going well - would like feedback and suggestions from all those who might wanna use it.

My current game is with Bradford City in League 2. Mid Table quality side really I'd say. Low budget so don't expect to bring many players in - loans are all you really have apart from free transfers. The tactic uses a basic 4-4-2 formation with the two wide midfielders in attacking midfield positions. This almost makes the formation 4-2-4 but with the 2 wider players also available to come back and support in defence and the middle of the field.


Home Torquay 6-0 win

Away Crewe 3-1 Win

Away Crewe (JPT) 1-1 Draw (Lost On Penalties :/)

Home Bury 0-0

Gillingham away 2-2 draw

Northampton Home 0-0 (10 men for 45 mins)

Burton Away 0-0

Had way too many draws really, defence was good but wasn't finishing chances. I changed wingers to inside forwards, poacher to advanced forward

and wing backs to full backs. I also made some changes to team instructions.

Lincoln Home - 3-0 win

Accrington Away - 1-0 Win

Hereford Away - 1-0 win

Oxford Away - 4-3 Win

Wycombe Home - 0-0 Draw

Looks pretty good so far. No losses. Results so far...
