Guardiola 4-3-3 / 4-1-4-1

 

Here is the tactic/strategy set I used for the Wimbledon save but these tactics can be used in any league. I recommend that you read the guidelines of how to use the tactics in the LL's Tactical Handbook and ask any tactical questions there.

I have used all these sets now with Wolves. 

For whatever reason, I just cannot seem to score. I have a lot of the play. But cannot score.

Is this something to do with the ME?! The amount of chances we create only to basically "pass" to the GK, is unreal!

Hi Shaun 

These sets are ‘basic’ set ups where they usually need to be tweaked to suit your team. Striker roles are quite important along with players that are good in those roles. I’m not sure if you read the guidelines in the main thread where I give examples of Striker-partnerships or lone strikers, so if you haven’t then I personally think you should have a look.

 

You can post your team over in that thread and maybe we can take a look and see what options you might have. Always worth a shot 👍

I glanced over the Wolves squad. I think only a few changes might help. Pondence has attributes that suit more an Inverted Winger role and Trincao has attributes that are perfect for the Inside forward role. Looking at Jimenez’s attributes then my opinion is that he would probably do better as a simple Deep Lying Forward when you implement pushed up wingers and keep his best role as a Pressing Forward when you are playing the 4-1-4-1 formation. Jimenez’s best role is Pressing Forward so you might want to keep him there until you have better options which will be kind of necessary to get this team into the master-class status. Coady is also a good Ball Playing Defender so that would also help in getting the ball into more dangerous areas at times that could also help create a few goals. Moutinho maybe needs to train his weaker foot and maybe avoid using his weaker foot as a trait.

Appreciate that. 

Will take on board. 

What would you do about midfield? With Neves being a playmaker but not suited to AP, would he at DM playing DLP (d) , then say two CM (s) be a good option? Happy to hear suggestions for the Wolves midfield!

I would keep the midfield like you did so far. I’m hopeful the other changes should be enough to get you going initially but in the long run I think working on getting more talented back up is essential 

Thanks. So a DLP at DM is ok would you say?

Also, in this setup, is making the FB (S) > WB (S) in the Balanced/Positive setups a complete no go??

I just wanted to say thanks for this tactic set and the accompanying advice. 

Far too often, FM iterations are ruined by super powerful tactics. Your set was just the kind of thing I was looking for.

Based on your advice, I downloaded the positive and balanced ones of Pep, Conte, and Sir Alex. I somehow overlooked the Mourinho ones! Just seen them now.

Anyway, I managed to get Cardiff promoted first time via the play-offs using another tactic that I never really felt comfortable with.

I was then really struggling, and chopped and changed quite a bit. I managed to finish 14th (42pts) but was in danger most of the time.

Next season, I was struggling again early doors. That's when I thought I'd give yours a go. Pep best fitted my squad, so I used that. Played balanced almost all the time home and away and finished a very respectable 11th (52pts).

Next season was 9th (61pts). Season after that finished 5th (70pts) but only missed out on 4th on GD.

As you can see, great progress in terms of points, which is the main thing I use to judge my team's development.

This season I just finished was a bit of a setback. We finished 9th (60pts), but I put that down to our best midfielder going because of a release clause and us having to have a late rebuild.

There are two things I really like about your set-up:

1. Even when on a good run, it still feels like we earn every win. We generally beat the teams we should beat (with the odd nightmare) and we can hold our own against the big boys at home and get the odd result away. So, it feels realistic and satisfying.

2. It really suits the way I like to play. I essentially just find the best players I can (no matter their position or role) and then try to shape the tactic to fit them. Your basic blueprints fit this really well. I generally use balanced and switch to positive if we are having trouble breaking down a team. One thing that has been key for me is your advice about the balance between defend, support, and attack. For instance, I have a world class regen DLF, and it has been fun working out who to put around him. Last season I had inverted wingers and inside forwards on attack. This season, I have gone to three strikers, with the DLF in support to try and draw defenders out of position. Another really interesting point you made was about assigning different roles to the midfield and strikers. I always do that now.

Anyway, thanks again for the work. really enjoying the game using them, and that's what it is all about.
