    New 4-5-1
    So yeah, hi.
     
    I know most people probably don't play 2012 on PSP anymore but since that's the latest FMH game I have and decided to pick up that's what this tactic is for. I did in fact just whip this up in about 12 minutes but honestly this has to be one of the greatest tactics I've ever made for this game (shameless overselling right there)

    So far I've used this tactic for a season with Bayern Munich, winning the Bundesliga in March, and I've started using it with Tottenham, so far I've played 6 matches in the premier league with 5 wins and 1 draw, 15 goals scored and 2 conceded, and my last 4 matches were:
    Tottenham 3-1 Liverpool (A)
    Tottenham 5-0 Swansea (A)
    Tottenham 5-0 Reading (H)
    Tottenham 3-0 Borac (BL) (A)
     
    So there it is, a 4-5-1 for you I guess

    Tottenham:

    Everton 2-1
    Sunderland 1-0

    @Chelsea8 Caulker is phenomenal, and I got Messi after saving up and getting Sugar Daddy during my third season.

    That is surprisingly not my full strength team, this is:


    Gomes

    Mattock Papadopoulos Caulker Vrsaljko

    Gotze Sandro Gutierrez Messi

    Lucas Moura

    Cavani

    Just for peace's sake, I'm backing down from this argument and have changed the instructions to suit Dec's liking but the original instructions are as close as I've ever seen to achieving Gervinho's/Mata's style of play.

    Well, as some people have been experiencing, quite a few of the formations that worked perfectly on 2011 have flopped spectacularly on 2012, like the bugel, like Patrick's 4-1-2-1-2, like most of my formations. Also, as everyone knows the 4-3-3's that used to work great don't anymore, so there's another one. It's also (I find) a lot harder to defend on 2012, whatever the roles/instructions you used for the defense.

    I found a couple of changes and I was just saying that I did. You don't have to start hammering me for a sentence I typed on a post.

    @Dec: I know about your guide, but I felt it necessary to do one for 2012 since there have been slight changes in the tactics engine.
    @Ashez: Thanks mate

    Inside Forwards - The Guide
    How to create...
    An Inside Forward

    So, after a request from the latest Youth Coach Ashez I am taking the Inside Forward instructions (or Inf :lol:) from my 4-2-3-1 Inf tactic and making it into a guide. So then, on with the guide!

    In General:
    An 'Inf' is usually a winger who instead of doing the traditional job you'd expect from him, would come inside and playmake, shoot and generally be a major nuisance for the opposition. Most commonly used when there is 1 player upfront, seen at Arsenal, an Inf is utilized to provide support for the lone striker. A bit like Gervinho:


    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etfhPMksoEA&feature=related


    Notice how Gervinho is always coming inside, trying to break down the defense and make space for the rest of the team to attack? Brilliant, isn't it.

    Let's break it down:

    Pro's:
    An Inf provides a more creative option in the midfield and attack, linking the two together as much as possible to provide a threat from out wide. He is always attempting to break down the defense with that extra-special pass or incredible individual displays. If an opponent underestimates him, they do so at their own peril.

    Con's:
    Although the benefits are substantial, there is a blindingly obvious con to using this role: Wing Exposure. When an Inf is attacking, if the attack fails then because he is so inside when playing, the opposing team can exploit that opening which is created. This can force the rest of your team to come out and put pressure on the ball, which will expose a much larger opening down the middle.

    Needed stats:

    Technical:
    Dribbling: As with most wingers-by-trade and wide roles, Dribbling is heavily important to find space behind defenders.

    Passing: Playing that killer ball is key to an Inf.

    Shooting: As with Gervinho, the Inf must be able to shoot and score when called upon to do so.

    Technique: Keeping the ball and recieving passes is another stat that can make or break a player.

    Mental:
    Creativity: The Key-stone of all Inf's play, without this stat higher than, about 13 he will continuously get poor ratings.

    Decisions: An Inf must be decisive with play or losing the ball is a foregone conclusion.

    Movement: Again, using Gervinho as an example (especially the first goal he scores on the video above) an Inf needs to be able to have that awareness to be able to find space behind the back-line and time his runs to beat the defense.

    Physical:
    Pace: The only Physical stat you need for and Inf, this, as well as everything else, is a crucial stat for an Inf because it ties in with 2 other crucial stats: Dribbling and Movement.

    A bit like this beasty kid:



    Above is a pic of Del Piero's regen

    How to make one:


    Passing: Direct
    Tackling: Normal
    Pressing: Team
    Pass to: R/L/C
    Set pieces (A): Forward
    (D): Normal
    Free Role: Yes
    Forward Runs: Yes
    Run with ball: Yes
    Hold up ball: No
    Long shots: Yes
    Through balls: Yes
    Cross ball: No
    Marking: None

    Quite obviously the player needs a run into the box from wide.

    This role is available on iOS, just tap the Inf option!

    Enjoy!
