Tactics slambo,s simple 4-1-2-2-1 with IF,s


Recommended Posts

A simple tactic which has given me reasonable success in less than 3 seasons with Sunderland winning the Championship, then runner-up in the premiership the following season plus winning the FA cup. Currently leading the premiership in my 3rd season just past the halfway mark. I do use intensive training on the fitness side, I also tend to use centre-backs who can also play at full-back for their height and strength. I normally play a balanced team but switch to defensive when playing a top team (chelsea,man utd, man city etc). The simplicity of the tactic is for my attacking players to simply run at defence so the IF,s and poacher need good attributes for pace, dribbling, crossing, shooting and decisions.. I am still using a few of the current Sunderland squad and they are doing really well fo me.

What about Shape and defense you use?

And IT regime?

Defence is balanced. If it's a tough game I will switch to defensive. Also if I am leading by an odd ghoal I will often switch to defensive and time wasting to see the game out. Shape is also balanced. I will update tomorrow with the IT training schedule

Here is the intensive training schedule. CD,s on defending. FB,s and other midfield on general and IF,s and Poacher on attacking. If you're assistant says a player is struggling with the regime put him on fitness. Some players do complain but it doesn't seem to affect their performance. I,m not entirely sure which training schedule suits certain types ( DMC general or defending?)

Can you upload pictures of tactics (shape, defense and attack)

My shape is normally balanced unless I am playing a top team away then I go defensive. If I am winning by the odd goal against a top team I will go defensive and time waste from about the 83rd minute. If a team is playing with just Wb,s on the flanks I will change my passing focus to Both flanks. If I am losing and my opponent goes down to 10  men I switch to attacking. They are the only changes I have used in 3 seasons. Defence is also set to play the offside trap so make sure that your defenders have good decision making.

I am doing a challenge with Scunthorpe(random choice) and the IFs are still some of my best performers(both free ). When was the latest update?

Last update was january 2, and this was one of the things they did: " Toned down Inside Forwards, prevented them getting into ST stratum as much off the ball ". I think its the reason behind it.
