    While these may seem obvious you'd be surprised at how many threads are tagged wrongly. This means threads may not get the responses the OP desires and will be a nightmare to find in the future, when searching or for guests.

    The 4-2-4 Grande Torino - GTO
     
    Let me explain why the name. It's not the car but I do love my classic cars. No, back in 2015 I had the pleasure of playing what is still to date one of my most enjoyable careers I've ever shared with the Vibe community: Il Grande Torino. The main objective was to rebuild the squad that had perished after the devastating plane crash in Italy in 1949. One of the many side missions of mine was to re-create the tactic that had brought the maroon side of Turin 5 consecutive Serie A titles, as well as worldwide fame to its manager and stars on the grass for their attractive style of play, the 4-2-4.
    But then the introduction of FMH16 brought an abrupt end to my wonderful GTO. The 4-2-4 Grande Torino tactic fell apart like a house of cards. FMH17 came along next and my hopes for GTO's resurrection were crushed shortly after. FMM18 no different, many test games later the tactic remained unreliable and highly inconsistent. FMM19 saw me once more keeping the tradition alive of trying to breathe life into this (by now) historical goal-scoring machine. And you know what, it isn't perhaps as deadly as it used to be.. yet.. but it's pretty close. And maybe with a few of your tweaks it can be. Give it a try and let us know how things unfold for you. Now on to the test saves..
     
    A-league: EPL - Manchester United


    No surprise here perhaps as we're three seasons into a test career and playing a top team with top players by now. Still not a bad feat winning nearly every game, and scoring 100+ league pts and gls in the process. I did lose the FA Cup final tho, the only loss (3-4) of the campaign. In this set-up the IF was netting most goals closely followed by the P and TM. The AF was easily providing most assists followed by the AP and then BBM and TM.
    Most goals: IF, P and TM Most assists: AF, AP and BBM But this went way too easy so we required testing with something smaller..
     
    B-league: Segunda División - Málaga


    I decided to do some more testing in Spain this time and dropped down a division. We actually started badly as I was forced to sell 3 starters due to the infamous release clause in their contract, days before the start of the competition. I decided to buy no new faces in return just to see how we'd do under such circumstances. Due to the available players in the squad I opted for a mirrored version of the original, which should work just the same. I think we did good with a weakened Málaga side nonetheless. Use the available transfer funds and you'll be winning the title comfortably.
    Most goals: IF and TM Most assists: TM and IF But I want to get more testing done.. 
     
    C-league: Serie C/C - Potenza


    We're in Italy. I decided to sink even deeper this time with less talented players all the way down to the Serie C. Potenza my club of choice, it sounded like 'potential' so there was our instant click, and with the little funds I had I added 3 new names to the team sheet. This was necessary because I didn't have enough players/forwards for a 4-2-4 system to play up front and/or use as subs. Once again bumpy beginnings, but things picked up quickly afterwards and we're sitting top mid-season with a 4-pt lead and a healthy GD. Still showing signs of life down here too.
    Most goals: TM and P Most assists: AF and BBM Now that we're here anyway, why not go to the very bottom of this.. 
     
    D-league: National 2D - Arras Football (Semi-Professional)


    ..and at the French bottom we've arrived. Arras Football. Absolutely love this name for a club, might even continue this career and see how high I can take them. I was going to say, again a bumpy start here, but in all honestly, out of all four saves this one was the most turbulent one. I'm not gonna lie, the further down we go the more signs we detect that even this formation has its weak spots. I think another issue is that down here things just get inconsistent as hell, especially early in the season when all the puzzle pieces haven't fallen into place yet. The language these players speak is red and yellow with the occasional blue's. Green is gold in this neck of the woods. We only lost twice but the games we lost we got absolutely sledge-hammered, so things are far from perfect at this point. It explains our poor GD, but hey, we're top of the league.. just. Tho I'd recommend tweaking the team instructions perhaps to suit your semi-pro players and get a little more consistency in your performances. Patience is a virtue in these lower regions. 
    Most goals: IF, TM and P Most assists: AF and AP  
    Final words
    This formation works for me, so I see no reason why it shouldn't for you. Tho I need to mention the further down the tiers of football you go the less effective I feel this machine becomes. Unless you got the final couple tweaks to perfection to make it a success in any league and in any division. In case it doesn't work at all for you it's probably either because you failed to find the right players for the specific roles or you did get the right men in for the job but they're not yet strong enough to bring in the points against the stronger opposition they're facing. In case of the latter I ask you to be a little more patient and allow your squad a little more time to improve and become better players before demanding results.
    Having that said, I'm handing things over to you guys now. Have fun messing with it and I hope you get it to work as good for you as it does for me.

    Not a chance in hell will they acknowledge it's a problem. No doubt it'll all be the wrong tactical choices by the human player.
