The Great San Marino Challenge

My tactics are nothing special, a wide 4-1-1-3-1 with Inside Forwards feeding the Advanced Forward who is the best striker in the game. I devised this tactic after my usual wide 41221 did not seem to work in Italy, so this is like a more attacking version of that one.

TIs are like Exploit the flanks, Play wider, Play out of defence, Hassle opponents, Use tight marking, (sometimes Run at defence).

Can send a screenshot tomorrow if you are interested but I think it's rather down to the fact that 1) the Serie A's quality has really deteriorated (although this year Juve managed to get into the CL final against me and Roma to the EL final) and the remaining good players are distributed in a small circle of clubs (PSG, Monaco, RM, Barca, Liverpool, Chelsea) and 2) my tactics suit the players I have (my AMR who managed 10 goals and 26 assists are rated only 2,5* still became Player of the Year).

With the permission of sammyt I've updated his work in order to bring the sammarinese league to FM15. So far I haven't really tested it out more than making sure it works. If you find anything that should be adjusted please give me a shout!
