Pow Right in the Kisser 2013






Prologue

Having trouble finding a tactic the will work for any team? Always wanted to play good, attacking, exciting football at all levels but never found the right tactic? Read on....


Pow Right in the Kisser 2013 is the third in the running series of Pow Right in the Kisser tactics following the successes of the 2011 and 2012 versions (http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/football-manager-2011-tactics-training/69922-4-4-2-pow-right-kisser.html http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/football-manager-2012-tactics-training/101377-pow-right-kisser-2012-4-3-3-tactic.html).

I've had great success with both top quality teams and **** poor teams.

The 4-3-3 remains, but now its versatile!

Note: Please read EVERYTHING below, it really will help

How Pow Right in the Kisser 2013 was made...

After months of creation (dont have a lotta time on my hands) Pow Right in the Kisser 2013 is ready for release. If you're looking to play short passing quick attacking football, this tactic is for you! Its been tested with both Barcelona, where it was tweaked to what you see today, for 3 seasons and Kidderminster Harriers for two seasons and both bought great success to their respective clubs with no changes.



Individual Training

I see this as a very important part of training and i set individual focus based on which position each playe will play in the formation:

GK: Goalkeeper
DR/L: Fullbacks (Wingbacks if you want them more attacking)
CB: Central Defender
DM: Deep Lying Playmaker
CML: Deep Lying Playmaker/Advanced Playmaker
CMR: Advanced Playmaker
AMR/L: Inside Forward
ST: Advanced Forward (Complete Forward if he's awesome)

Heres an example:

Team Training

I normally set my team to this in pre-season and use it until it is fluid or the season starts:

View attachment 296168

One the season has started I reduced the intensity to 'High'.

Then when either the tactic is fully fluid in all areas or there starts to become lots mid-week games, i reduce it to 'Average'

I have never started using this tactic half way through a season so wouldnt know how to set the match prep up for that.

Opposition Instructions

I've never used them

Shouts

I never use any

Pitch Size

I always go for the average pitch size, havent tried any others

Working Examples of the tactic

Barcelona

With Barcelona I won numerous titles and cups while creating the tactic over 3 seasons, but the 2015/16 season is the season i settled on this version of the tactic.

Here my match results from the last season

s you can see, I won everything on offer and only lost 3 games the entire season in all competitions with an average squad age of just 23.

Independant Testimony

Stitty7:

"I tried making my own and downloading others too. When i was downloading this one i thought to myself if this doesnt work I wont be playing FM again until the next patch. You have made the game enjoyable for me again"


Maverick0716

"great tactic! tried many others, but none of them really worked, until yours came out. game looks fluid and, as i prefer it, i am always in control."


Bellynufc

"top notch so far started using this in man u match as you can see unbeaten so farhas taken me to top great tactic"

khas

"very good tactic!best for FM2013!!!Thank you Harriers!"


wanderer89


"All in all, a really good tactic, especially attacking wise, I only really lost those games towards the end because they were teams I wasn't expected to beat, defence could do with being improved, but that's probably down to my naff defence though tbh! In fact I'm doing that well in the league, I'm currently sitting in 6th after 15 games! Chelsea have just offered me the job too!"


suoda

"Thanks for this incredible tactic, Harriers09. In my first season as Carlisle United in League One, I secured promotion to the Championship with no transfer budget and a small wage bill. Finally, a perfect 4-3-3 that guarantees free-flowing football. This tactic works against weaker and stronger teams as long as you get your team talk right."


EP1985



"Prediction: 18th. I can only derive from this that it's a fine tactic!"


kaiserf

"Thank you for this wonderful tactic.

I started an FM Classic game with St. Pauli and struggled tactically for the first two years with various 4-4-2 and 4-3-3 formations of my own design finishing 4th and 10th with squads that had been tipped for promotion. I switched to this tactic a few games into my third season and ended up getting promoted in second place with a squad that had a media prediction of sixth at the start of the season. I went 19-7-7 to finish with 67 points and a goal differential of +38(!), two off of Cologne at the top with 69 and a +32 GD and 3 points ahead of a just relegated Werder Bremen.

My first year in the Bundesliga went well, with the team finishing 13th on 41 pts (-3 GD), 10 points ahead of 16th placed Cologne who went into the relegation play-out. I'm currently sitting in 5th at the winter break of the 2016/17 season.

While I think I made a few great signings to get where I am, I really owe the tactic as being confident in it allowed me to concentrate on scouting and signing good players. The things that improved my success the most were finding a DMC who was basically a very athletic DC and grabbing players who had high mental stats. If anyone plans to switch to it, I would also suggest doing it during the close season, as when I first switched to I had a run of 7 games without a win that almost saw me fired."

Latest Patch 13.2.3. 2015/16 season with Ajax won every game in league, Euro Super Cup vrs Real Madrid who where 3 times in a row winners of the champions league, Domestic Cup, and the Champions League vrs Man Utd. I have not changed anything and was unbeaten in all comps only drawing in the champions league 5 times 4 where away.

"I'm using this tactic with my FC Copenhagen team, and it's probably the best one I've used on FM '13 as far as consistency goes. Very solid at the back, won the league by over 25 points and only conceded 10 goals all season. Got to the Quarter Finals of the Europa League, which is quite an achievement with a team with very little resources and average players when it comes to Europe.

I'm about 7 games into my second season, bought in a few players and I'm top of the league by 5 points, however it's starting to feel like the opposition is getting used to the style of play, and I'm struggling to keep clean sheets and often find myself scraping victories against mediocre opponents. I'm wondering if there's any tweaks that might help steady the ship a little bit? Or maybe just a change in match prep? I've tried different match preparations, but none of them really change anything. Overall though, a very good tactic that probably isn't getting the praise it deserves. Far better than anything else I've tried on here."

"Registered just to post in this thread. I have used this tactic with my Dag & Red save and have gotten them from League 2 to Championship in 3 seasons. Great tactic. I did make a variant of the this tactic for playing matches I really had no business winning or to change things up that was counter-attacking that seemed to do alright. One fundamental change I did make that made a huge difference in the lower leagues was changing the IF instruction from "Cut Inside" to "Move into Channels". Seems the IF's can make it to the end line much easier instead of running into a bunch of defenders at the edge of the box. This allows them to put crosses to the other IF or striker and easy goals. The first match out one of my forwards easily scored a hat-trick.

Now that I am at Championship level, I have reached at dead-end. Just cannot score. But I want to think that is just the game ******** me over as I have plenty of chances. Seems the opposition goalkeeper gets man of the match most of the time. Thankfully my defense is sound so there have been a lot of 0-0 results."


Created on Version 13.1 on the full FM game, not classic

Tested on Version 13.2.1 (Barcelona and Kidderminster Harriers examples as above) on the full FM game, not classic

Works on Version 13.3.2

I will post feedback in the OP as testimonials Please do get back to me. Hope to hear from you soon.

Any problems/questions, feel free to ask and I'll get back to you ASAP

Updated Link for patch 13.3.2(wingers swap sides and striker is more advanced): http://www.mediafire.com/?twkei33rds0p1bi


These are very minor changes but in order to have the wingers swap side affectively you need to train your wingers to be able to play on both sides. If you do not wannt to or cannot do this, set the individual instructions of the wingers so that they do not swap side. It WILL NOT be detrimetal to the tactic, it's just a persoal preference



Final Version (13.3.3)

This is the final version of the tactic i will be releasing. Not much has changed but it's ongoing development has lead me to this final version on the final patch...13.3.3

Testing:

Fluminense

The first season wasnt the best season I've ever had but the team had to start learning the season halfway through the season. But by the time the 2nd season started (Jan '13) it was fluid and these were the results:

View attachment 334320View attachment 334321View attachment 334322View attachment 334323View attachment 334324

As you can see i won the Brazilian League (which is extremely open, about 8 teams are good enough to win it) and the Copa Libertadores (South American Champions League), and winning the Rio State Championship at the start of the next season.

I have just moved from Fluminense to Dortmund and the start of the season looks like this:

the advanved forward/complete forward thing is only for his individual training, not to change in the tactic itself

But if you're asking when should you change his individual training to complete forward, then i'd say only if he's world class

yea thats the one. Hows it going?
Cheers!
Just about to play my first friendly against West Brom! Will come back after a 10-15 games with some feedback :)
Only signing so far is Ferrie Bodde. Do you have any good way to sale players in a efficient way?

Edit:
What is the most important stat for the striker as he is complete? Speed or tall, strong player? Hard to find a Ibra-type when playing as Bristol! ;) Btw, won against Brom, 1-0 with their regular team! :)

great

Havnt really found an efficient way to sell players at that level, making money is hard without good cup runs. With Kidderminster Harriers i stuck with their squad and just bought in some loan players to fill in the gaps. Offered a few players out but only really got their value for them, nothing more.

For the striker, he need to be good at finishing, heading, composure and off the ball. Good levels of workrate, pace, composure and passing would also be plus's. I know its hard to compare through divisions but this is the striker i playered as my first team regular and he ended up as the league's top scorer:
