  1. http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/share-download-fm-17-tactics/365891-durdle-turtle-532-defensive-minded-instant-button-non-strikerless-tactic.html
  2. Does anyone know how to play a Sean Dyche style in this game? I know his team is doing bad now, but they did play very well in that one 7th place season. I'd love to know if anyone has had any success with a 442 defensive, direct style.
  3. I think it's ridiculous to assume that SAF wouldn't at least have United challenging for the title this season. I think he's a better manager than Emery or Poch, and that's not just a result of the sample size, he was one of the most extremely adaptable managers of all time. The reason he went out with a bang and Wenger didn't is because one was able to change his team based on the players he had around him, and the other kept trying to put the same system out there.
  4. I have a few, mostly I model my approach after Fabio Capello. I also admire Klopp and Simeone, as well as Bielsa, Pulis and Herrera.
  5. Do you have any images, would love to know what you're using, tried something similar with Real Madrid, but didn't quite work out.
  6. I've been trying to get a Burnley style tactic going for a while, with little to no success. The 'Park-the-bus' tactic style seems awful against ever team I've faced. Has anyone got such a tactic to work yet?
  7. hey @knap, just wanted to ask you what you think your best tactic defensively for an underdog is this year. My team has looked a little leaky as of late.
  8. Love this! I'm gonna try it in a 442, we'll see how it works, it reminds me a lot of Jose Boradalis's Getafe , one of my favorite managers nowadays!
  9. Tika-Taka was one of the biggest tactical developments in football history, and even now we can still see it's influence. The problem with that, is there are many teams who took the wrong part of Pep's tactics. They took the short passing and long bouts of possession, but not the incisive passes and smooth finishing. But what if you don't need that part? What if we can win the game by not trying to score, but simply passing the ball about until the other team gives up? That is what I set out to do. Here is a bit of what I'm trying to do, as created by another user last year. http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/share-download-fm-17-tactics/365891-durdle-turtle-532-defensive-minded-instant-button-non-strikerless-tactic.html Now, we will see how I do.
  10. My tactic I hope to be replicating is Lobanovskyi's 442! Lobanovskyi, was one of the most innovative coaches of all time. The first thing he did when he joined Dynamo Kyiv was order a computer, unheard of at the time.' From 'Inverting the Pyramid' by Johnathan Wilson Inverting the Pyramid – ‘Everything was meticulously planned, with the team’s preparation divided into three levels. Players were to have individual technical coaching so as to equip them better to fulfil the tasks Lobanovskyi set them during a game; specific tactics and tasks for each player were drawn up according to the opponents; and a strategy was devised for a competition as a whole, placing each game in context by acknowledging that it is impossible for a side to maintain maximal levels over a protracted period. On the wall at Dynamo’s training-base were hung lists of the demands Lobanovskyi placed on players. Significantly, of the fourteen defensive tasks, four concerned the distribution of the ball and the establishment of attacking positions once the ball had been won. There was no notion of simply getting the ball clear, for that would have been to surrender possession and thus place their side back on the defensive. The thirteen demands on forwards, as well as including a line about pressing and attempting to regain possession high up the field, are also dominated by calls for movement and the search for ways to shift the ball away from areas in which the opponent has a high concentration of players.’ My next post will be my closest apporiximation of it, which will mostly be based on this chart from spielverlagerung, here's a link if anyone wants to read the article themselves ! https://spielverlagerung.com/2016/04/01/team-analysis-valeriy-lobanovskyis-ussr/
  11. I'm no great tactician, but one of the things that helps my defense is having both defenders be DFB's in a low block system, something that Pulis and Dyche use to great effect (not sure on Allardyce, haven't studied him enough). Another helpful tip is tackling hard on all the players in the opposition instructions, which means they'll disrupt the flow of the oppositions attack. Careful though, as it could lead to more cards!
  12. Yeah, having the pass into space shout may have been a combination of low sleep and some narcotics, but the idea with the DLF and the WTM was that the boys in the back would hoof it up to him, and then he'd cross it into him at the edge of the box. The shoot on sight was of course not needed, just me being a controller who doesn't want my team to think for themselves. Edit: I'm obviously no tactical czar, so here's this new system, this time we have the 2 DM's dropping back to both support the wingers, one of whom is now attacking, and the wide- midfielder, who is now supporting the target man who is now on attack. The shoot on sight is gone and replaced with a poacher, who will sit on the lines of defense and then hopefully bang one in from a searching long ball. Not sure if this is helpful or not, but I decided to put the defenders back into a low block because in our friendly match the weren't quite up to snuff to get the ball in a high line. Thanks to both of you for your help, I need all of it I can get apparently!
  13. Small note, I was planning on adding 'tackle hard' for the opposition instructions. I usually add that shout for defensive measures, as I find that the so called 'tactical foul' works well for disrupting the offensive rhythm of an opponent.
  14. I've wanted to get a more asymmetrical formation to work for some time, most of my shapes are standard and boring. Currently managing Hartlepool united, and based this loosely on Arrigo Sacchi's Milan side, as well as some aspects of Wimbledon's Crazy Gang back in the eighties and nineties. What do you guys think of this tactic so far? Think it has potential or should I change something?
