  1. Sorry for the delay, have been busy with school but will try and have it updated as soon as possible.
  2. I will upload a version of this tactic for FM19 this weekend.
  3. It is to do with copyright from the la liga videos, the video is banned in 25 different countries across north and south America. Apologies that you can not watch it.
  4. Note sure what section to post this in, apologies if this is wrong. I have previously posted a few tactics on this forum creating FM18 and analysing the tactics of other managers and have decided to create an analysis video on YouTube. I was hoping anyone on this forum who is interested would take a look to help promote the video. Here is the link -

  6. I haven't uploaded a tactic unfortunately, but I did decide to create an Analysis video of Diego Simeone's tactics and create an Analysis channel on YouTube. Can you all like the video and subscribe to the channel to help promote and I will continue making more videos, cheers. Here's a link to the video -
  7. I will continue this thread for FM18 within the next few weeks.
  8. A defence and attack duty in the centre of midfield will leave you very exposed and will be hard to control the midfield, this along with control/fluid telling more of your players to get involved and take more risk in transitions will be easy for an opponent to counter attack and expose as these areas lack cover naturally with the 4-4-2. At lower league level having 2 FB's on attack is also a bad idea as they will both get caught high up the field leaving your flanks exposed. I would suggest putting one of the FB's on defend or support and changing your CM/A to a BBM as he will still get in and around the box but will also be available to track back and defend. Looking at the shouts its not clear what your trying to achieve, If your trying to play a direct 4-4-2 and attack the flanks then I would go with a structured/control mentality as this will make your wingers/forwards more attack minded and create more space for the ball be played into when being direct along with the slightly wider and pass into space shout. I would also remove the shoot on sight shout as I think this shout is intended to be used when you are desperate for a goal during a match and want to shoot at every opportunity instead of breaking down the defence.
  9. Retain possession is a shout mainly used for seeing out a game when you have the lead and want to keep the ball, it greatly reduces the risk of your passes and you might find it hard to penetrate the oppositions defence with all your passes going sideways or to the nearest man, especially in a 4-1-4-1 formation which lacks bodies in the oppositions half as opposed to 4-2-3-1 etc. If you want to keep possession I would just do lower tempo, shorter passing and if you feel you need dribble less, this will make your players keep the ball and have more possession but also take risks when necessary and try to open the defence and score a goal. This will greatly be influenced by team mentality whether you are on counter (less risk) or control (more risk)
  10. Not the CM's, they will be the players that will usually have the ball from deep areas in my half and where I want my players to keep their shape until the ball is out wide or back to their more defensive players and have a player press. It's similar to what Diego Simeone does at Atletico or past Jose Mourinho teams, press high up and if the press is bypassed retreat, sit deep, don't press much and force opposition out wide until the ball is won. I put on slightly deeper to try and create a bit of space between the defensive line and forward players whilst keeping it on fluid so they do it as a unit and offside trap to encourage pressing high up the field and add a bit of security when that's taking place.
  11. I am currently trying to play a 4-1-4-1 in where the team presses to try and win the ball in the opponents half and when the opposition enter our own half our players sit deep, keep our shape and allow the opposition to keep the ball whilst hassling them out wide where the wingers attempt to close down hard and attempt to win the ball, my question is has anyone successfully emulated this where the team will aggressively chase the ball in the oppositions half and if the press is bypassed retreat into our own half and not press until the ball has been won. Here are the OI's I'm using: I have my striker and 2 wide men on close down much more with my 2 CMs on close down more. I have selected sit deeper to encourage the team to go into its shell and frustrate the opponent whilst using offside trap to encourage them to sit close to the half way line when the ball is in the opposition half. I also use prevent GK short distribution, slightly narrow team shape and stick to positions. I usually play on fluid/flexible with a control/standard mentality. Can anyone recommend any changes to make the team sit in its shell more and try to frustrate the opponent without players being pulled out of position in their own half. I know this may not be fully achievable on FM but can anyone spot any clear mistakes that I have made, cheers.

  13. I didn't get time to start a save on the beta this year but I will probably start with my own team Celtic until I win the champions league and the league becomes boring then move on to a team in the conference north/south. Who have you all decided to manage and how do you plan to keep it interesting?
  14. I've been trying to create a system where our team attacks as a 3-4-3 with one centre midfielder dropping between the CB's as the WB's sit higher up field and defend as a 4-3-3, I know this is easily achievable with the half back role but I find that after the build up phase when you are in the final 3rd the half back sits slightly in front of the CB's and leaves you exposed with balls through the centre as they rush back into position. I was wondering if anyone knows a way to have this DM player sit at the half way line and not venture forward at all like an anchor between the CB's but when defending come forward and act as a normal DM and shield the defence. For an example of what I mean imagine the complete opposite of a libero defends as a midfielder stays in a CB position when attacking and distributes the ball. Cheers.
