  1. Hi, I have been an avid player of FM since the 98/99 season - when it was known as CM, of course - but despite my years of experience, and quite frankly the ridiculous amount of hours I've clocked up, I have been unable to grasp the tactical side of the game - mainly because I have very little inclination after a hard day at work to wade through pages of forums trying to work out the games interpretation of tactics - and have relied on the geniuses that visit these forums for 'plug and play' tactics to build successful teams around. The grid tactic for FM12 was a particular favourite of mine. My experience of FM suggests that it takes a couple of months after the game has been released for some beautiful, selfless person to come up with a mind blowingly effective, 'conquer all' tactic which would afford me hours of FM pleasure. However, despite trawling the internet for hours over the past few weeks (yes, I am well aware these hours could have been better spent wading through the pages of aforementioned forums and learning about FM tactics), I have been unable to locate such a tactic for FM14. Now this may be because I haven't been looking hard enough or my incompetence isn't allowing the various tactics I have tried to flourish - and, if that is the case, I apologise for wasting your time - but I have finally got to the stage where I feel I need to come cap in hand to the SI community and ask for direction to a tactic that will afford a numb-skull like me a few hours of FM enjoyment on a week night, rather than going to bed with the raging needle after nearly snapping my laptop in half. I would therefore be eternally grateful to the person who can direct me to the 'plug and play' tactic currently doing the rounds at the moment. Only specifications on my part are that it wins me more games than it loses and doesn't require a tedious amount of tinkering. Please feel free to vilify me for laziness/philistinism/ignorance before showing me the way. Thanks for your time.

  3. Hi, I've been playing FM (and CM before that) for the past 12 years but, despite this, I've never been able to master the tactical side of the game and and have always downloaded a tactic some genius has uploaded to this site and concentrated on buying players and the other tasks managing a football team entails. Over the years, I've always managed to find a 'plug and play' tactic but I am struggling to find one for FM12. I have tried a few but they only seem to work for half a season after which, I disappointedly watch on as the early promise my team has showed fizzles out leaving me disheartened. There are so many tactics to chose from and, without asking the most painful, repetitive and obvious question to all you regulars (as kindly demonstrated by the post above), I would be extremely grateful if someone could point me in the direction of a tactic that I can use straight away without tweaking and will last longer than half a season before being found out by the AI. I know this is lazy but, despite my years of playing FM, I have never been able to create a tactic that works. Please excuse my shortcomings in this area. After 12 years in the game I now realise and accept that I am never going to become a great tactician. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
