This is a thread for any tactical (and training-related) discussion to do with FMH14 - that includes tactics sharing, general tactical discussion and any tactics-related questions. If you are sharing a tactic, please try and either include a screenshot of the tactic or give as much information about the tactic as possible - with test results. If you're asking a question, then please provide as much information as possible about your problem; which team you are, etc.

To get the ball rolling, I'll start by sharing my current tactic with Liverpool:

Lineup



Player Roles



Team Instructions



Testing




Although I haven't tested it much yet, it seems to be a reasonably successful tactic (I played a second team for the Crystal Palace game, and rested many of my best players in the Sunderland game), with the 3-0 win over Spurs the obvious highlight. However, I've found that the main problem with the tactic so far, obviously, is the lack of width - which often means we're not quite one-sided when attacking, so the team hasn't been as clinical as they could've been. This is, however, a very good formation for Liverpool because it utilises the teams strong positions (centre-back, centre-midfield and striker) and doesn't use positions where there is little depth (full-back and winger). I'll probably end up tweaking this tactic a bit more as the season progresses, so I'll update it in this thread as I change it/do more testing. I may also end up testing this tactic with another team, but I'll definitely test it a bit more with Liverpool.

I have kept it simple:

League: Skrill South
Team: Bath

Finding bringing in player really hard, even on loan, but Bought: Ryan Bird (from Pompey 4k) Pld 6 > Gls 4
No one else want to come to my club (yet).

Formation: 5-3-2
Team Instruction: Balance - Mixed - Committed - Pressing(ON)

Conceding quiet a lot but managing to score more, and win (3-2) a lot.

Any recommended players would be appreciated.

Can someone help me with a tactic for bournemouth? I'm currently playing 4-2-3-1, balanced, short and committed, pressing on.

I'm not doing bad but I would like to be doing better, won 2, drawn 2, lost 1. They keep saying I haven't got enough width but any formation I've tried with width doesn't work well.

thanks

Well.... Just reached mid season...

3rd with 10 wins 1 draw and two defeats. Lost on the Portuguese cup. I'm winning by 1-0 or 2-1. And was relegated to the euro cup.

I've seen the width problem many times on the new FMH, and I've heard others mention it too - I'm not sure what the problem is, maybe it's a bug? Try playing with more attacking full-backs (preferably wing-backs) and try playing wingers on the 'right' wings - i.e. play a right-footed player on the right wing. Please tell me if this width problem keeps on coming up, though, I'm interested.

I've got two tactics (one with Liverpool and one with Havant & Waterlooville) to share (I'll post them tomorrow), both of which have been successful for me about half a season in, so if you're interested, look out for the post in this thread tomorrow! The Liverpool one is based on possession football; the Havant & Waterlooville one is just about keeping it simple and scraping wins.

I bought the game yesterday as i got my new phone S3 mini. I think this will be the best ?6.99 i spent on a phone for a game tbh. I had handheld on the psp can't remember which year it was though. It's just great to be able to play a little bit of fm on breaks at work and also on the move. I decided to start with AFC telford (skrill north) local team 4-4-2 formation. (i've always used 4-4-2). Managed to sign a DC michael townsend on a free scout recommended him and also get tristan plummer on loan from weston-super-mare for the whole season. Think plummer will be good for me as his stats show dribbling 15, shooting 15, movement 17 and pace 12. Played 2 scored 2 assisted 1. Played 2 games so far won 3-2 against stockport and drew 2-2 to altrincham.
