Rinus Michels - Total Football (Erik ten Hag's version) by kun

THE TACTICS (4231 and 433)‚Äč
Just a brief explanation. Firstly, I created the 4231 (similar to the UCL semi-finalist Ajax side) but when I saw the goods results I had on Athletic Club (Bilbao) 1st season (don't have SS of it, because the file got damaged in the end of 1st season), then I decided to replicate it to a 433, with minor changes (MCL changed to DMC and the AMC to MCL ofensively minded), because sometime we face strong sides with a decent AMC and it may be a good advise to have a DMC on our side).

SET PIECES: In any of these two tactics, on defensive set pieces (corners, free kicks and throw in), I just let that as default. Only made changes on Ofensive Throw In and Corners. Talking about that, in both tactics, it's recomended to use your inside forwards as corner kick takers or the MCR, in order to not have your left or right back, for example taking the corner and let an open space for a counter.
In offensive corners, we have 3 different routines, in order to confuse our opponent. He never knows were we are going to take the corner as the players are mainly positioned in the same positioning in all three routines, but the corner will be taken to Near Post, Far Post and 6 Yard Box.

In most of Athletic games, I used the full-backs one slot forward (before the midfield line). That may be good to be more agressive and if you want your wing back to get tons of assists (and a few goals).
You can also use Offside Trap, but I didn't use it because I managed to get better results without it.
But obviously, you are free to try any other tweaks to suits your team the best way possible.
