Heres my League standings which I still have 8 league games with plus another 4 round robin games for Generation Adidas Cup and then if we advance another 2-3 games on top of that plus league Championship Group stage so I will have about 20 games left.

1st Season I won the League however I lost in the semis in the GA Cup. Keep in mind My team is made up on 16 and 17 year olds too no top players

Hey Guys,

I've tweaked a little bit TeaforOne4321OXP105ALLCUPS and it's working really great. Creating a lot of chances against all teams, very dominating especially away.

I've won twice the Uruguay League with a team predicted almost last.

I've now been hired by a Top League Team and the tactic is still working wonders.

I hope Knap doesn't mind I post the tactic, and maybe test it.

I'll attach a pic so you can see how the formation looks.

Best Regards to all and good luck!

Hello boyyyys!  @knap

What's the best 4231 for you? A really consistent 4231! I'm using 20.4.0Teafor OneAM4231P107CC, and i play with and against really good players (world league with prime legends). I've won everything but in championship (world league with only big teams) i've 7 draw and 4 losses, so 88 points only...

Can you guys and knap help me for a really strong and better 4231 for you please?

For my rather average Cardiff team, Kashmir doesn't do at all well away from home.

At home, it's been great: Played 6, Won 6, scored 17, conceded 3

Away, it's been awful: Played 3, Lost 3, scored 3, conceded 10
I didn't like it in away games right from the off so didn't use it in all of them.
At home though, can't fault it even against the big teams.

You do get a lot of bookings though, due to the 'Get Stuck In' TI and my relatively small squad has suffered.
That's probably another reason it's not that suitable for lesser teams.

In hindsight, I should never have switched from Tea 4411. The season was going great apart from a blip in Dec/Jan which prompted me to look for something else.
For my latest game, away at Villa, I switched back to it and was much happier.
Even though we lost in injury time, we had played 75+ minutes with 10 men and had taken the lead.


Bear in mind this is only the 2nd season in the game, we are doing superbly well. Predicted to finish 15th, we have a chance of CL football next season, if I can get my suspended players back!

I did briefly try Tequila Big Away but didn't really like it. Think I'll stick with Tea 4411 for away games.

We finished the season with two big home wins over Leeds and Bournemouth, narrowly lost 2-1 at Chelsea and drew 3-3 at Arsenal.
This secured 2nd place behind Wolves who did the double!
We were a bit lucky on the final day. Were leading 3-1 before Arsenal pulled one back but then we went down to 10 men and Arsenal equalised. We were holding on for dear life for 10+ minutes.
Man U and Man C could have overtaken us but they dropped points on the final day too as did Everton in 7th.
Just 4pts separated 2nd and 7th in the end.


Kashmir proving fantastic at home, I won every game using it. Still trying to find that away tactic but will probably be sticking with Tea 4411 for now

Hi knap


what`s the difference between TEA FOR ONE 4321 OXFORD P105 ALL CUPS    and     TEA FOR ONE 4321 OXFORD P106 ALL CUPS

1 point.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

The links are here:


If you look at the first screenshot for each, you'll notice the same formation but a few tweaks in team instructions.
i.e. 106 has low crosses and work ball into box/ 105 has whipped crosses and much higher tempo
No other TI changes, not sure about PIs though

FM 20.4

Is this basically a 20.4 version of the FM19 tactic you posted earlier?
I notice a few changes e.g. positive instead of attacking, slower tempo and not using the Much Higher Defensive Line.
I don't think I've seen you using less than an attacking mentality for FM20 before.

Used Instant Result for all matches. Kashmir for league / cup / Champions League matches and used Tequila for Europa League matches, worked very good with Dinamo Zagreb

Can anyone suggest the best tactic to play with Arsenal




This one ist just awesome! Won the League with 100 points (average possesion of 58%), EL and CC (very unlucky in FA Cup against Liverpool) with no major tranfers. Pepe is a beast as RF.

FM 20.4 and 20.3 me 2040  Tactics  (includes FM 20.2 Beta tactics and FM 20.2.4)



Because I test with top, the pts total in tactic name will give an idea of what is best for top club, Top Clubs should be able to use all of the tactics.

Elite  Club say 1-2in League (Lpool MC etc) Top  3-7 in League

Top 3-  7 in League

Good  8-11

Average 12-16

Poor 17-20

Can also use Top and Sub Top a Home Tactic Underdog Away or

Top Favourite Sub Top Evens Underdog if Underdog


How is Tactic Testing done?
We test each tactic over a 90 game season (11 months in total) with 5 teams of varying levels of both ability and reputation. Each team is in a self-contained league that mimics real-life (majority the same level, but some are in the level above or below). This means that our test teams should be around mid-table level.

To make the test balanced transfers, internationals, injuries and fatigue are turned off for all teams.

What are the levels and how are they calculated?
Levels of teams are based on club reputation. The levels are as follows:


Elite - Barcelona, Arsenal

Top - Borussia Dortmund, FC Krasnodar

Good - CEC, Rangers

Average - Malmo FF, Newcastle United Jets

Lower - Al-Rayyan Sports Club, Southport

We worked out the average reputation of each of the levels, combined with taking a set of 5 clubs (2 top reputation, 2 lowest reputation and 1 in the middle) to find out the Top and Bottom CA for players, as well as the Median.




Cadoni recommendations


My journey with Maidstone:

I have to blame myself, not designing and playing from 1 match with 20.4.0 TEA FOR ONE VOL4 4411 P103 ALL CUPS.

I have designed my team to play with Black Echo 442.

If someone plays at Vanarama, they know that finding players is PITA.

Three defeats with 20.4.0 TEA FOR ONE.

Rest defeats with Black Echo.



Breaking wins for the team


What about goals? We have it.


My goal machine (this is a joke Knap, congrats)



Regarding for yellow and red cards and fouls




The more serious things about the game.

I am taking responsibility of training.

I am using 2 Match from FM Korea and Chance Creation & Score More Goals from Passion4FM.


I am also using training sche. for youths from Passion4FM.

Not so much for comment about those, I have started to use it 8 months (in game) now.

Chance Creation & Score More Goals sche. really helps. I haven't checked Youths.


Demand More when we are winning by 1 goal.

Show Some Passion when we are back at score.

Praise when winning 2 or more goals.


FA Trophy and if we make League 2 promotion, who knows.


MRr Hough recommended shouts

Use shouts Show Some Passion and Demand More. Also concentrate if leading by a few goals

Are we absolutely sure there were made no changes to the ME in the 20.4.1 hotfix update? I enjoyed an incredible success with a "Tea for One". Now I can't seem to win a game. My team is usually underdog, but the results have been awful. I've been trying "Beowulf", "Kashmir" and "Black Echo" as well – without success. However, playing IR is a completely different. Then I tend to get the same results as before. But not when I play the games myself, which is what I'd like to do obviously. 

Any thoughts? @knap

Can you confirm tactic ID 1440 - Hard Time Killing Floord Blues 4132 P104 EC FA is the updated (really successfull) FM19 tactic?

Because that one was called WULF 4132. It has the exact same player roles. Wulf 4132 is also in Google Docs but hasn't been updated to 20.4
