Credit to WicksyFM's 5-3-2 which I used as a base for this.

Tactic is strong defensively and fairly good going forward, I used this towards the end of my Nottingham Forest save where we went on a great run and won the Championship, have also holidayed half a season with Liverpool which see just one defeat and some good wins, 3-0 away at Tottenham, 5-2 home to R Madrid and draws away to Man Utd and Man City.

Obviously play as many friendlies as possible to get team familiarity high as quick as possible.

I generally start all games with the attacking mentality, but if its against a tougher opponent I'll switch to balanced if take the lead especially if away from home. Just use common sense with game management really!

I use no opposition instructions.

Let me know how it goes for you.

Forgot to say, tried this with the Dutch challenge. Seemed to work really well at home, with the odd blip. Away from home, not so good.

Still surprised it's working at all with ME updates, last time I gave it a go was a few weeks back and wasn't much good at all sadly. Maybe the last update has changed things.

May have a new 4-4-2 up at some point, depends how well my second season with arsenal goes. Plus I'll probably holiday through a couple of seasons with other teams to test it.

I was very curious about the triple defense tactic. I will try this tactic both in my career and in online draft mode.

This is a great tactic indeed. It has produced amazing results with various teams. Having tried it with a big team as well, my only problem with it is that it doesn't seem to work as well in the big games with better teams, especially away. I have tried to leave it positive or even attacking or to go more defensive and so far the results aren't there. Sometimes it's bad luck too but in general for such games it doesn't seal the defence preventing the opponent to create chances. Any suggestions?
Once again, all in all that's a great tactic tested with multiple teams and works with all of them!

May have a new very attack minded tactic for FM21 uploaded tonight, just need to holiday some test seasons with a couple of different teams when home later.
