To make this tactic as successful as you can make sure you buy the write players who are suited to this tactic. You need 3 good mid-fielders, i recomend lampard ,gerrard and totti, but obviously we cannot all afford these players, so i have made a list of players who are good at this tactic in the different divisions.
Lampard , gerrard, nolan, barton,
Burton o'brien, busaky, kamara
david fox, paul mclaren, jimmy smith ( get him on loan from chelsea.)
Dinning, proudlock ( you can play him up front but he is a very good mid-field player)

To be successful you will need some old heads and experienced players in your squad.
David beckham, if you need goals in your side he is avery good buy, he is garanteed at least 20 asiists a season. And he also may chip in with 5 or 6 goals. Great buy.
Van Nistelrooy: He may cost a bit but this guy knows where the back of the net is, he could be your 20 goal a season striker.
Puyol: Great leader, and can also head a few goals in, enough said.
The key to success is to have some bright young players who can turn into world beaters, here are a few i recomned.
gareth bale: great player and turns into the best left back in the world, great buy.
Kerlon: Quite a unkown player but he becomes one of the best in the world, if you act fast you can buy him for a bargain 400,000.
Tommy spurr: May not be the best of players at first, but if you treat him right and play him regulary he can become an england international, great buy for around 250,000.
There you have the key players to suceed, in the next few eeks i will try and update you with some more findings of mine.
