Hello, FM-Base!

Firstly, it's been a while since I've uploaded a tactic for Football Manager, I think my last one was during FM11, and I do want to get across all the important information regarding the tactic, I don't want you to be sitting here reading for ages, so I'll try keep it short.


The Tactic:

Team Instructions:

Results so far with the tactic:

(Also played Newcastle (lost) and United (won) after the Liverpool game)

Champions League Group:

So far I've played 29 games with the tactic, of those 29 games I've won 23, drawn 4, lost 2. I've scored 64 goals and let-in 16. And I know not many people care about CCC's, and assume it's buggy, but just in-case you do, I've kept a note of how many I've had in the games I've played. In the 29 games, I've had 55 CCC's, which is almost an average of 2 per-game.

My Line-Up:
View attachment 342163

Regarding which stats players need for each position, I've found it depends on the person, some like their CB's to have a few different attributes, however if you're one of those who doesn't mine, or doesn't know, you should follow this guide by Raikan077: http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/foot...most-important-stats-per-position-thread.html


As for what the tactic gives you, it's nice, clean short-passing football, it doesn't focus on going out-wide or down the middle, it's a mix, the players seem to do what they feel is best and it seems to work the majority of the time. I'd also suggest making sure your BWM is a solid one, who can not only win the ball back, while your team is depending, but also has the ability to pick out a pass, he's normally the player to start of my attacking, so make sure his passing attribute is decent.


While I remember: I've only tested this with my Spurs save, so I have no idea if it'll work with whatever team you are, although I suspect if your team is better you'll have much better luck. It's not like my squad is 'super' either, I still have the likes of Caulker, Livermore, Kaboul & Walking.

If I've missed anything out, or you'd like to see more info, feel free to let me know and I'll update the OP as soon as I can.

You can download the tactic below, any feedback would be awesome. Let me know how you get on with it.

In the first season, I think you get £21m. I'm in the 4th season, hence how I have Rooney ect.

do you have a screenshot of results after first season?
The results I posted are the ones I've used the tactic for, I'm not at the end of the season, yet. I'll update with more results once I've completed the season.

match training & general ?

I created the tactic in my 4th season. And I don't class my team as 'very good' - As you can see from the screenshot, it's small and has player there from the 1st season, it's got a few good player but it's nothing special.
