  1. I've now played about 5 games with this tactic, first season with Spurs. I'm using this tactic alongside a modified CM Addict 07 tactic and a 4231 tactic for really tough games against the big four. I spent the first half of the season using various iterations of V3. Currently mid January, sitting 2nd behind Arsenal on a ten game unbeaten run. What I have definitely noticed is that this version seems much more defensively sound - the opposition seem limited to chances from set-pieces or quick counters. Has anyone noticed that you get caught on the break with this tactic? Probably due to defenders going up for free kicks/corners, and then being out of position on the counter. Any thoughts on how to shore this up without impacting the attacking threat?

Maybe just my team are "special". If I play more direct at a faster tempo I lose the ball in midfield more and get less supply to my target man. This is with version 3. </div></BLOCKQUOTE> I wanted to deliberately try this tactic with a quality side (Spurs) vs an utterly useless bunch of halfwits (Swindon, in League 1). Seems to work fine 'as is' with Swindon, yet struggled with Spurs, lending weight to the theory that this is a really great tactic for the lower leagues, and requires a deal of tweaking for better sides in a higher quality league. Just my thoughts, in case anyone remotely cares...
  3. I'm currently trying V3 with Spurs. Its not quite going to plan... I'm struggling to score - frankly you would think with a strike force of Berbatov, Mido, Keane and Defoe, goals would be of little concern. We seem to create lots of chances, but few reach the target. I think some of that is down to training, so I'm looking to recruit a top-class coach to improve their shooting stats. Defensively, it seems to be holding up well. I do tend to drop the Defensive Line down to about 9 for most games and barrow the MCR (the more defensive) to the DM position for most games. I've found that setting the tempo higher (15 as opposed to 5) has improved the amount of control we have in a game. I always thought that a lower tempo was a means of keeping possession, but upping it in this tactic seems to have a dramatic positive impact. Any thoughts as to why that should be? I've just recently changed the FC settings to those in V2 as they seem to suit my strikers better than the V3 settings. Overall, a little inconsistent right now, but the changes I've made seem to be having a positive impact. I still rate this as a good base tactic. I'll try the amended settings on my Swindon game idc and report back.

The tactic isn't perfect - Fuss recognises that - and the ideas of these threads is to identify weaknesses with these tactics to try and improve them for others.

And if you know it so well, where is your amazing tactic, which blows our minds ? Fuss, don't pay much attention to some asshole like that and keep up the good work </div></BLOCKQUOTE> you cant say anyone "as*hole" here.ADMINS please kick this poor guy from here. and for this tactic, i tried it 2 seasons.first with real a finished season 3. and with newcastle it was very poor i finished league 11.Fuss, try to make better tactics or dont do any other tactic again. </div></BLOCKQUOTE> Its all very well being critical of Fuss's work, but you really need to understand why it doesn't work for you. Is there any constructive criticism you can offer, rather than just telling him to make a 'better tactic'. How can it be improved?
  6. First impressions of this tactic are very positive. Using it with Swindon Town in League 1. P5, W3, D1, L1. Just beat QPR in first round of Carling Cup. I'm very impressed with the defensive qualities of this tactic. Even though I won promotion with Swindon in Season 1, I was never happy with my defensive unit as we seemed to leak goals on a regular basis. This, so far, had solved that problem, and I've certainly noticed a reduction in the number of opportunities created by the opposition wingers. So it gets a big from me relative to the defence. I'm a little concerned offensively. We seem to create chances, but spurn them. This tactic definitely relies on a good targetman. Hopefully big Duncan Ferguson will help me out there. As stated by Fuss earlier, the subtle twaeks at the beginning (and also regularly during) the match make a big difference. Its not only key for this tactic, but for most others too. I like it, its good work and I'm impressed so far. I'm going to test out V1 and V2 with my reserves as well.
