Totaal Voetbal Cruijff/Michels 4-3-3 Challenge Tactics & Training Football Manager 2013

Totaal Voetbal - Cruijff/Michels 4-3-3 Challenge Tactics & Training Football Manager 2013, I've always been a great admirer of the Cruijff/Michels total football philosophy, I've decided to attempt to implement a tactic as much like to like as possible (any tactic creators are welcome to join in with this challenge).

Totaal Voetbal - Cruijff/Michels 4-3-3 Challenge

What is Total Football based on?

Short precise passing
Quick tempo and high intense pressing
Free roaming with high creative freedom (10 players attack, 10 players defend, a lot of interchanging)
High defensive line
Wing/Full backs and Wingers must hug the touchline to maximize the width

Here's a short video of arguably the greatest "Total Football" side of all time, Holland 1974 :

The Total Football philosophy depends heavily on the nature of players in a team. Not every team can play it. In fact, there are very few teams that could do it and that is what led to suggestions that the Dutch side of 1974 World Cup was the best footballing side ever to have played. Total football requires all ten outfield players to be very strong technical footballers. The positions of all of the players are switched continuously but this is not restricted to players playing in the same position

For example, a defender must not only be able to change positions with another defender. Total Football requires all players to be interchangeable. In other words, a defender must be able to switch with a forward if need be and a forward with a midfielder and so on. The only player who is not required to switch positions is the goalkeeper.

The formation I'll be intending to use

Am contemplating whether or not to change the limited defender for a Libero role.

This formation may change due to tweaking periods, however this is in my opinion the most suitable formation for the philosophy in question.

As I previously stated if anybody is interested in taking up the challenge with myself then your more then weclome, I'll be updating this thread with results/tweaks until it's perfected.

The Tactic!

When I use the tactic I never do the team talks I've always left that for the assistant manager to do as well as opponent instructions, your obviously perfectly entitled to do it if you wish.

Match training

I personally do 1 week off Team Cohesion and 1 week off Tactics on repeat until the season starts, at this point I put it on balanced , average intensity. For match training I always prefer to use defensive positioning which I highly recommend, I also allow rest before and after matches. Remember to train the players in their individual roles!

Player attributes

Keeper - Just a general solid keeper
Centre-backs - Passing, Composure, Tackling, Positioning etcetera (Agger, Vertonghen..)
Wing-backs - Pace, Stamina, Crossing, Tackling etcetera (Walker , Johnson..)
BWM's - Tackling, Strength, Passing, Stamina etcetera (Dembele, Leiva..)
Wingers - Pace, Flair, Creativity, Crossing (Dyer, Lennon..)
Complete Forward - Finishing, Heading, Composure etcetera (Cisse, Adebayor..)

I'd really appreciate it if you could all post your results, I also highly recommend that you do NOT tweak the tactic.

P.s can a admin/mod approve this tactic when possible, thank you
