    @ nikolgiorgos

    hi, i tried your strategy and so far its working amazingly well (unbeaten run with only 91% team conceded 0 goal on league 1 goal on ch. league and 1 goal on cup) but i have question, do you only play long pass against certain strategy/stronger opponent only? because my assistant always advice me to change to short pass.

    if oppo hasn't DMC (or DML-DMR), I start with long pass (less defense lines )
    But everything in Orders except normal-mix-no can give you an advantage or a disadvantage.
    So if you use any of them, it's good to watch your game, observe the as.m. comments, number shots and % of passing.
    If it's not working, remove it.

    thanks for the insight, 1 more question
    my team is pretty much the same as last season except the defender and gk, last season i use 4-4-2 and 4-5v-1 mostly and this 1 forward i have score a lot(top scorer of the league). now that i use 4-1-4-1 my goal/assist mostly come from mid player and this forward only score 1 so far this season. Im not complaining as my team now win more consistently, but do you think this is because the strategy make my forward serve as false 9 and no matter who the forward is the result would be the same(mid score more than forward)? or should i looking to sign another forward?

    Main description here

    Just used 4141 defensive/flanks/long/on; low/hard/zonal/off ; down arrows DCx2; in a great 0-1 win.
    451v (112%) against 4141 (99%)
    Both managers present, +5% possession for me (away)
    Red card my ST at 30'. Switch to 413w1, with ST dropping from 115 to 94q veteran, same tactics.
    End result 0-1, more shots and SoT

    I also use 4-5-1 V and I like it more as my ML-AML & MR-AMR score more goals there.
    I just use 4-1-4-1 for the tough games or where 4-5-1 doesn't work right (like vs 4-4-2 or vs 3DC-DML-DMR)
    ST has a general problem anyway. I use mine for F-K and penalties, to boost his rates and goals.
    If he isn't good at anything, sell him.

    Well guys, the 4-1-4-1 is very popular yeah, but in my opinion you should not put blue arrows on ALL defenders, but only on the DCs. Well, atleast for me it worked really well.
    I added a video about the 4-5-1 v style, you can find it on my youtube channel.
    Thanks for the video, really helpful. So did you have defensive mentality? Long passes? And nick on the thread used low pressing, would you then suggest high?

    This worked again for a 2-1 win in the home leg. This time I was 4141 @ 111% vs 451v @ 117% with deadly AMR and very good DMC. I did have a full +15% possession bonus. I changed passing focus a few times and used defensive, condition, and attacking bonus. Turned off the counter attack after goal 2. Corner specialist was important for me, her goal also came from a corner

    Edit: in this case I also applied attack arrow to ML/MR and DL/DR, 1-2 total at a time and watched their ratings to change on and off

    If i can't watch it, should I change something?

    and that's the bottom line because Stone Cold said so.
