I've been playing this save on and off since TFF launched this tactic.
It's now 2028 and I've promoted Truro to the Championship before takeing WHUFC to 4 consecutive League titles, 5 FA cup and 2 Champions League victories.

Yet still I cannot find a good BBM who can score more than a couple goals per season and assist more than six or seven goals. My world-class DLP also struggles with the assists, but at least I have a few of those. Every BBM I have are converted ones, natural in other positions as I can't buy one for no money nor love.

I'm scoring 130+ goals per season, so winning isn't an issue, really. Just finding the best attributes to the BBM. A luxury problem.

Very easy to manipulate regens to suit the BBM role, but if i had to suggest some players from start game who are still < 25 years old and affordable id go:

Nicolo Barella (Cagliari)
Leon Goretzka (Bayern)
Corentin Tolisso (Bayern)
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic (Lazio)
Arthur (Gremio)
Thiago Maia Alencar (Lille)

IMO, the right BBM can double up as a DLP. And to be honest, im not looking for them to be assists and goals. They're a 2 man midfield that has to graft pretty hard without the ball, so i pay more attention to the tackles they win. Them and the fullbacks are your biggest tacklers.

Most of there passes are to the advanced wider forwards who then put the cross in for the goals. Your front 3 and full backs will get your assists.

how do you manipulate your regens to suit the BBM role?

are you looking for BBM that are good on tackling, work rate, positioning and other attributes that centrehalves usually are good at?

Individual training, developing PPM's.. if you get the kid young enough, and have enough PA to play with, you can manipulate the stats a lot.

I select the BBM role and focus on those selected stats. That's a lot of stats to focus on, and i do like to prioritise some of the stats that evolve around winning the ball back. (work rate, strength, tackling)

Great Tactic

Hi to everyone!
I'm using this great tactic with Panionios (Greek League). Overall, it works very well, but i've noticed that my team concede almost 1 goal every match. I follow all the istruction in the OP, but the opponent team almost always can score to me easly. I'm doing something wrong?

In the screen below you can see my last complete season. Too much goal conceded.... In particular against weaker teams..

Hi,

My opinion, there is no magic bullet to fix it and I find that it's conneced with your players' quality... just improve your team and you'll see that the better your team is the less goals you concede

Thanks to all for the answers! At the end i think that is an overall palyers's quality issue. I was thinking (in addition) if it could be a problem related to the pre-match team talks.. I've noticed that with different team talk, I've obtained totally different result (with equal opponent's strenght).

Do someone have some advice to manage team talks?

And, in addition, the best training programme is the one shown in the OP? Or not? Should concentrate my team more on def training?

Thanks!

I think that there's something wrong... I've lost 6-8 a home match, and my team was also favourite (2.50 vs 2.65)...

Edit: I've used this match as a test. I've re-played it, with different team talks (same starting XI) and I've won 4-1...

you know i think you forgte one main thing about the game... its to be a manager :) you should adapt the system before every game! TFF gave very solid platform (as a tactic) for everybode... but even for better results you should adapt your strategies... im always switching things if i play away... and check for opponent... this formation can transform werry easilly in to 442 or other formation if you need to cover some areas of the pitch... dont jus plug and play... ofcourse in the end of the day players is the most important... if you are burnley and you have to play united on away so not much to do bro :)
