Get the tactic fluid, train tactics and results will come. If you concede via free kicks/corners and **** like that (away i mean, home you should smash everyone) then train defending set pieces, if you leak goals randomly (away) train defensive positioning. THis could also be used for tougher matches.I seem to leak goals with barcona. Done everything you said and I seem to leak goals from mistakes or the opposition running in behind. Ideas?
Should work, yes. Especially with good teams as the players already have decent "tactical attributes".Does it work with the latest patch?
Do you remember the celtic-barcelona a few years back when celtic had only 3 minutes on the ball and won 1-0 ? Things like that can happen in football, hitting the woodwark 2-3 times and missing countless others then the opposition winning. Same applies here.Ive been using this one for about 15 o so matches with Barca and it is working very nice. One draw though at home against Sociedad which was a bit disappointing. But in general its a great tici-taca tactic
Work well for an underdog team and for more seasons???View attachment 587790I will update this initial post to supply further tactical guidance. Just not now.
The Barcelona `08-`09 success story.
Basically the formation i have in mind is this :
View attachment 587793
Its a system Pep has always been fond of, variation of it can be found currently at Bayern Munich.
View attachment 587796 or View attachment 587799
It is the same system, really.
I replicate it like :
View attachment 587836
The attack phase :
View attachment 587810
Both the right winger and left inside forward are set to cut in and get into scoring positions. The main reason we have the right more advanced is Dani Alves who usually provides wide support in both midfield and attack. It is therefore more likely for the right winger to score more, easily losing his man and getting more frequently in the box.
The defensive phase.
View attachment 587816
First is out of possesion, second is on the ball. System goes from 4-3-3 to 3-4-3.

As you can see the default is tactics, as its by far the most important by developping into players the reading of the game. Tactics is to be used 2 out of 4 weeks, the other 2 should be Attacking/Ball Control. Default match training is attacking movement (this is used when you are the better team, as Barca is the best i always leave it so. If you got a very very tough opponent you can switch to defensive positioning. Just for that game though.

Best is to add both Germany and Spain when starting game, regardless of the fact that you will only play barca. Germany allows access to coaching staff in both England and Italy.
Best coaches are :
Gk : Otxotorena - Handling 5/5
Gk : Nista - Shot stopping 5/5
Defense/Tactics : Mauro Tassotti 4.5/5
Tactics : Bernhard Peters 4.5/5
Shooting : Rodolfo Borrell 4.5/5
Attacking : Andrea Stramaccioni 4-4,5/5
Attacking/Tactics/Shooting Leo Beenhakker 4.5/5 (quite expensive though)
Attacking/Tactics/Shooting/Ball Control : Ralf Rangnick 4.5/6
Fitness : Neri, Bisciotti, Venturati, Carravetta, Paixao - all are 5/5 I prefere to get them south american ones aswell for scouting purposes.
Opposition Instructions :
Assistant, usually they should be set by me as i know better who the opposing threats are and how to counter them. But it takes time and i didn`t wanna waste 2 days to finish a season. Your assistant should have high tactics/tactic knowledge determination motivation discipline.
Player Preffered Moves (PPM) :
Fake 9 = messi`s.
The important ones are come deep to get the ball (Off the ball, Anticipation, Decisions, Creativity) (to involve himself in the building of the attack) tries killer balls often (Passing, Technique, Creativity, Decisions, Teamwork) (already instructed for direct passing) - to set up team mates that move into goal scoring / play one twos (Passing, First touch, Off the ball, Anticipation, Decisions, Positioning, Acceleration) = fasten up the game. Places shots (Finishing, Technique, much Composure)= the type of finishing. Player will put shots unreacheable for the goalkeeper. This could have been even better by having "curls ball" but its one of the hardest ppm to train as it requires tutoring. Lob keeper (Creativity, Technique, Composure, Finishing, Flair, Decisions)= 1v1 situation. It is highly recommended to have at least 1 guy having either this or go round the keeper in your team.
Inside forward (your typical villa/neymar).
Remember villa was a striker. Henry was a striker. the reason they were asked to stay by the line is to stretch the defense and create space between the defender assigned to them and the central defender. When they get the possesion usually they go for the net, allowing alba to stay wide and keep at least a defender there.
So i`ve trained neymar to have Run with ball often (Dribbling, Acceleration, Flair, Agility), Dribble through center (Dribbling, Flair, Quickness, Balance, Agility) cuz he will Cut inside(Dribbling, Anticipation, Decisions, Flair, Agility, Finishing, Passing) and Place shots (Finishing, Technique, much Composure) . Basically this should instruct the player to cut inside and shoot/pass. Will train him to "play one twos" (Passing, First touch, Off the ball, Anticipation, Decisions, Positioning, Acceleration ) aswell. Tries killer ball often could also be useful for your IF, but Barcelona has the killer supplied mostly through middle by either iniesta/xavi.
Winger (right) the pedro style. (usually second goalscorer)
move into channels/cut inside/place shots/gets into opposition area.
Left = the more attacking midfielder (typical iniesta)
Tries killer/dictates tempo/ play one-twos/gets forward. I`m thinking of training him move into channels aswell.
Right = the DLP, usually xavi,
the guy that comes back to take the ball from either busquets/defenders, usually doesn`t venture too much in attack and is almost never to be found in the opposition box.
come deep/try killer/dictate tempo/one-twos.
HB - busquets.
Originally a def midfielder aimed at recycling possesion and pressing up the pitch, he was later used in guardiola`s setup to help the defenders when wing backs venture in attack (he was even used as cb, which he sucked balls at cuz he had not enough speed to catch up with the loose defenders)
Stays back at all times/ runs rarely with ball/short passing
Left back (alba)
gets forward whenever possible, runs down the left, knocks ball
Righ back (alves).
Alves usually is to be found in guardiola`s setup as a winger/defensive winger. There are times when he is even more advanced than the Winger. What his going up allows is the winger to get into goalscoring opportunities by having almost permanently his back covered. In my setup i`ve sold alexis and pedro (each for 40+ mils) cuz i hate them irl and i`m playing deulofeu (cheap free + shitloads of skill). He has over 20 goals, more than neymar simply because alves`s pushing forward.
Runs down right/gets forward whenever possible/dive into tackles/ hugs line/shoot with power (this is not a must, alves has it so he scores some goals aswell).
should have just "does not dive into tackles" and "tries to play his way out of trouble"
Finally, results :

16 goals received in a full campaign with over 100 scored. Just 3 goals in all CL matches lol. Defence looks rock solid, interceptions are made mostly before getting any way closer to the box.
Messi has !!!! 74 goals

Under 19 has same tactic. Manager is Samaden (ex inter youth develop)

Pretty similar to my team and i got noob youngsters. Just 2-3 are good, rest are ****. The best are loaned out.
If you are gonna go on a "you save-loaded" rampage on me, there is proof i didnt around inbetween page 15-25.
