Well, I've been trying 3 different versions for smaller teams/away games, and all 3 are off to great starts and performing way better than expected. I'm using the tactics for every game, home and away. Will finish the seasons and post all 3 or the best one, but here's a sneak peek.

Koln: Media prediction of 11th, currently 1st. This one is a counter and structured version of the original.

Watford:
Media prediction of 14th, currently 1st. This one is a Standard, Very Fluid one, keeps the poachers and midfield, and changes up the defenders a lot.

Grenada:
Media prediction of 14th, currently 1st. This one is a Standard, Very Fluid, keeps most of the original, but moves the AMC to a MC and tweaks team instructions and set pieces a bit.

I see people getting unbeaten seasons, and winning winning the league unbeaten with tottenham, meanwhile I am 16 7 9 in the Premier League with tottenham even if I keep the morale of the players high and 100% match fitness, just lost 4-1 to Huddersfield at their home while having more oppurtunities, I wonder how is that possible, what am I doing wrong?

Training : High / Balanced
Team : Tottenham First Season
Tactic : I've swapped both Owls original and the grenada one

Going to give this a go in a rangers save as im bored of playing strikerless all the time in FM17.

Will be using the original Wednesday tactic and the away tactic when playing Celtic/Europa league games.

Your Arsenal tactic worked wonders for me last year so hopefully this produces the goods too

Started a game as Stomil Olsztyn in the Polish I Liga, started on -3 points, and media prediction of 15th.

At the winter break I am now top of the league, 6 points clear with my 2 strikers scoring plenty. Concede a lot from crosses and long punts over my centre backs, but my players in general are pretty below par so that might be the main reason, average current ability is in the 80s, I have 2 players over 100 current ability and one of them is a new signing so hasn't played a game yet.

Been using the normal Owls tactic at home, owls away when away unless I go a goal down or need a goal late on

I'd prefer to do it with....

I'd prefer to change the am to ss, because it makes the offensive line to be more aggressive when it comes to attack

Good tactic! I've start a whole new save with The Gunners. It is been several games overall. All these games finished with clean sheet. This was impres me a lot. The tactic is in attacing mentally orientated and I was shocked after 5 or 6 clean sheets. Tha Attacks is excellent, only thing that i'm curious is why Sanchez (the left poacher) scores all goals, and Dybala (right poacher) has only assists. I've looked clearly these two positions and they are the same. Only left ppm's or just natural selfish ability of chilian, and Bergakmp's thinking of Dybala. Anyway, good communication between poachers. Maybe Mesut is not so good behind them. I can not took best of him at FM17 and even FM16, maybe my mistakes and problem. Ramsey did well as long with Xhaka. Players of Arsenal fit very well in this tactic. Good job, at the end of season i'll give you more info.
