Well guys, I recently started a new save with AFC Bournemouth and I'm absolutely surprised by those results:

In my opinion one of the most important thing is the morale of your team. If you want to have success, the team has to be happy. In pre-season I'm always setting the correct player roles (First team, backup etc) - if you do so, in mid-season the team will not be hard to handle (their morale will be better).

You can test it if you want to do so - but keep in mind that the most important thing is the morale and everything else described in the OP. Maybe you'll get some yellow cards - don't forget to check your fitness before evey match. I often substitute my WB's if their fitness is less than 70%, because I think they are an important factor.

The happiness of your team is more important than everything else. In my first few seasons of FM I already managed to miss international football with top teams because the morale absolutely didn't interest me (and the morale was very bad because I always played with the same squad -> fitness + morale = success or no success).

In this tweak I'm using two CD with "cover" or "stopper" or "defend". I'm still not sure if "cover" or "stopper" or "defend" is working better. Maybe you can change it if you are struggling and give me some feeback!


- I'm using TFF's actual OI
- Corner taker MR / ML (the one with the better stats)
- I'm always trying to teach my offensive players the ppm "shoots with power" (+ training on "finishing") and the other ppm's from the TFF annihilator thread
- NO instant result or simulating - all matches full played
- Not too many transfers - it's an "problem" what happens nearly in every save with every tactic. If you bring to many new guys in, it could be a struggling at the first 3 - 4 months (most people call this "second season syndrome"). If you did this mistake (maybe because you need more CA for BPL promotion or whatever) you need to train team cohesion and teamwork.

Saampje, i'm using OP OIs

And Dejan, Eusebio always works better for me, specially that 442 tweak, makes AM an awesome beast!

This tactic doesn't work for me.
Sorry, but the defense is horrible and there's just a big space in the midfield.

The underdog, in the other hand, is brilliant!
Don't expect big possession but shots on goal will be enormous.
With the switch to this tactic, I managed to win 3-1 to Real Madrid and I'm having results like 4-1, 5-0, 6-1.
Like a said, 50-50 or even 48-52 but.... win for 4-1, to the **** with possesion! XD

Glad to see is working for you!!
I think original is a great tactic, but AM always made poor games. With the tweak, and using a little gifted AM, you can kill any team! I don't test it, but i think a left footed AM works better

Wampley, I noticed you have two versions of your tweak, a normal and underdog. What sort of level would you use each one

Also on the CM do you normally play a standard CM or an AM who can also play CM

Cheers

I started using normal one, that is just a positional tweak of EUSEBIO v3, but i realised that defemsive line was too high for underdog teams and i made that version. So, after test underdog version with not an underdog team (Sporting CP #382) i use always underdog, cause even with a top team, defense is better.
I can't say if it's better a CM or an AM. But he must have good passing skills. Maybe long shots... Still testing.

I give you some tricks i use every game:
-You need fast players (go for 13 or high in every position, except maybe CMs)
-I use to sign club-raised players, or at least national players (easy adaptation, so faster winning)
-I use to have 22 players (an A-team, best i can, and a B-team, for easy games. At first, backup players i can sign. Then, i like to sign high PA youth players to give them chances and make them stars...)
-I use to spend all my money updating all facilities, specially youth ones. That allows you to have club-raised superstars in 2-3 seasons
-As i play usually with underdog teams, team CA is barely 130. Then, try to sign cheap youngsters with high PA (150-160)
-One of most important things is morale. If you have an unhappy player who wanna go, sold him (except if he's a club legend and only wants mor money. Then, give him)
-I think that's all i do.

So, as an example, last game:
3 season with Girona. 2 Ligas, 2 Copas, 2 Supercopas. 1st season pred 20th, 3rd season 4th.

View attachment 96610Last year signs View attachment 96615The Squad. I guess CA 130-140

And all my star regens: (I like to put them real faces...)
View attachment 96620 PA 169, sign for free
View attachment 96619PA 143 sign for 170m
View attachment 96618PA 159, club-raised
View attachment 96617PA 146, club-raised
View attachment 96616PA 147, 155m

EDIT: End of season 4. Total Champs!!

Cheers Wampley, I am using a Swiss league add on so at the the third tier of Swiss football its not always easy to get decent players. i have used the original and got promotion in 2 successive seasons but the AM position never feels they erform well even if they have the correct attributes and relative high at 13 or 14
Fully agree about pace at every position

Are you using Underdog version? Because i've not tested with lots of AM, but with all i've used, they use to made great games.
In my Girona save the most used is Granell, who is not a super class AM and they play great:

And in the Sporting save i had Adrien as AM, working great.
I guess a good passer is good enough.
Very important pace and crosses in FBs and WMs

Not tried the underdog version yet, just using the original Eusebio version from OP. The AM position never seems to be a star!!

bladesadviser, use the underdog tactic.


You'll have a better defense, your CM will be more concentrated and will work as a team and the forwards will have a lot of opportunities.
