You can use results in a few ways.

Top covers say top 5 Clubs in Division Mid the next 7 and then under dog.

Just use totals as an all round tactic.

Use best top at home and best underdog away or difficult games.

You can mix and match with your preferred formations.

It is just a guide to help identify right tactic.


With regard to Away games it depends upon your own risk factor. I am gung ho and prefer to attack and perhaps win 1 game in 3. If isk adverse then use a defensive tactic and perhaps draw all 3 games.

As a defensive formation I would use 4141 as it has a DM and protects wings, and KINGSTONIAN 4141 would be my choice.

I use 3 DLs std higher much higher. If AI are going for balls over top then std but if AI attacking you can leave at higher ormuch higher. 

The LOE can be adjusted with or without DL adjustments. The simple answer is just drop LOE..

I use Cautious positive and attacking mentalities.

For a SUS these are ideas to use.

Use 4141 formation

Remove pass into space

Stop WB runs by go

ing to defend or no nonsense FB

Use Defend on DM or most defensive MC

Change mentality Positive/cautious

Add Time wasting

Change from counter press and counter and full SUS would be to regroup and hold shape

I tend to judge what to use by how the game is progressing as you may just to want to control game rather than a full SU


Calm Down (win by 1 goal diff) -

Praise (win by 2 goal diff) -

Berate (loss by 2 goal diff) -

Demand More (loss by 1 goal diff or draw)

It is based on the KINGSTONIAN 4141 which was used in the Forest Green Double Promotion video. Maybe it can achieve similar results.

Last 2 have been diabolical, so will have to go back to FM 18 for a decent ME.,

I still prefer sliders and arrows. I take the view that the AI should be improved rather than reduce options. There should be attacking and defensive shapes, which means going back to FM 08 MEs.

If it works for you test results are immaterial.

I will put in on next, so result will be in about 3 hours.

@knap Have a good day.

What do you think about  the tactic with 1 attacking midfielder and 2 strikers? Is this tactic style risky in your opinion?
When I check the google docs I could find only HOLY GHOST FIRE 4312 DW P106 FA in first 20 tactics. It is 10 th tactic on your google docs in total results column. 

Which of your tactics with 1 AMC and ST s do you recommend ? 

Actually I am asking this because I have a good player who is playing very well on AMC position and I want to use 2 strikers.

Thanks for your answering.
