    League/CL/Cup winners - Share your tactics here

    This is a thread to anyone who won a trophy this season.

    I think it would be great for you to share your tactics and formations. This will help others too

    Some questions

    1. What formation did you use the most?
    2. What orders did you put with them?
    3. Did you play with any arrows?
    4. Did you rely on counter formations?
    5. Any advice for anyone using your tactics?


    Of course you may add other things if it helps

    1. What formation did you use the most? 4-5-1 v style
    2. What orders did you put with them? normal/attacking, own half, both flanks, mixed passing, zonal marking
    3. Did you play with any arrows? blue on DMC to counter AMC and red on AML/AMR
    4. Did you rely on counter formations? sometimes
    5. Any advice for anyone using your tactics? Reliable tactic. Got me to the Champions League final and only lost 1 times in league with reserves

    For me, I relied mainly on flank based formations rather than using a suitable counter. My counter was whatever I could think of best but using an AML/AMR and it actually worked. When I was up against a formation that was flank protected, I reverted to the narrow diamond.

    So I mainly used 4-5-1v and the butterfly.

    My tactics were:
    Attacking mentality
    Down both flanks
    Own half pressing
    Normal tackling
    Mixed passing
    Zonal marking
    Counter: ON
    Offside: OFF

    RED arrows were always on my AML/AMR and my striker. Never used blue arrows and I recommend against using it. I would also recommend NOT using an offside trap as it's a pretty useless feature in the game. For anyone using the 4-5-1v and butterfly, start off with own half pressing, if you don't seem to be scoring then switch to whole pitch pressing. In some circumstances, using whole pitch can work against you so try not to use it all the time! (think getting countered all the time)

    What do you make of having force counter with the 4-5-1v? It didn't have any effect for me.

    Hmm, sometimes it does but it's better to counter with butterfly though, I have to say.

    I don't like to let my opponent play with the ball before I attack. The thought of them having a pop before I get a chance worries me because they could score all because I allow them deep into my own half.

    Well you need good defenders for that. Some defensive wall players will help from long range strikes. Do that and then you're free to attack

    I primarily used the 4-5-1 V

    League/CL/Cup winners - Share your tactics here-squad.jpg

    Passing down the flanks, Normal mentality, Normal Tackling, Pressing Own Half, No counters, No offside trap, Zonal Marking.

    The only formation i generally had to counter was the Narrow diamond, and then i would use 3N-1-3N-2W-1
