4-4-2 drlw1980, a possession based 4-4-2 tactic.

​I've been struggling to find a good tactic for my Liverpool team, and I've tried many tactics without any big success. Therefore I ended up to make my own tactic, picking up some tips here and there. My main goal was to make it a possession-based tactic, because I think this years ME would allows me making one, and because this is my football-philosophy. This is the result:

Tactic overview:

Goalkeeper:

I choose a sweeper keeper because of my high defensive line and offside-trap. And want him to deliver short.

Fullbacks:

I want my fullbacks to be stable at the back, but also contribute at offense. I always prefer pacey defenders. Sometimes they play bad, but I think this probably is a ME problem.

Central defenders:

Strong and not to slow defenders is what i prefer. Found Skrtel/Agger most stable, used Sakho more as a fullback.

Central Midfielders:

I started using BWM's her, but they picked up very many yellow and red cards. So I choosed one Box to box player(Gerrard/Henderson) and one Deep lying playmaker(Lucas/Allen). This combination was for me the best.

Wingers:

I preferred right-footed at right and left-footed at the left. So I played Sterling/Henderson/Coutinho/Ibe at the right and Wilson(teenie)/Coutinho/Cissokho/Moses at the left. They will dribble, cross and play wide.

Strikers:

Here i choose one Complete Forward(Sturridge/Yesil) and one Deep lying Forward(Suarez/Aspas). They will score many goals. DLF will be the main threat at corners, with bringing the ball into the box from a short corner.

O.I.:

None

great wee formation - saved my job when having a dip in form with liverpool first season.

tempted to start a new save with the likes of Newcastle as have the basis of a 442 team already in place, ill keep you posted but love the wing play from this game!

FB ratings are poor but when watching the game it looks like there have a cracking game - strange

I switched corners to "mixed". While watching games it seemed to me like there is a "bug" when corners was set to "short". Suarez (or other DLF) was always with no opposite players around him, it was easy to score or pass the ball. Now it looks more realistic. But great tactic, thanks.

I'm doing well with this tactic. I do alter the strategy to "Control" against tricky teams away or big teams which seems to work for me. Forwards are enjoying pretty good success, but I agree with the post above - that must be a bug surely?

Used this for a season with my Hibernian side. As you'll seem some great results and runs throughout the season. I would like to add though that I do have the best squad in the league which I won on the last day of the season. I too noticed the corner thing, scored alot of goals particualy in the first half of the season from it but wasn't complaining! Great tactic. Will let you know how I get on in future.

Hi. I am liverpool and my team is struggling. Daniel S cant score to save his life. Do you use wingers and attackers as support role or attack role?
