  1. Some more data on the 19.2 updated tactic from me. Little back story on the save game, This was the 14th season in my Luasanne-Sport save that I started some time ago. I am a complete powerhouse in the Swiss league, I started in the 2nd tier, won that got promoted and have since won the title 11 times - missing out on the first season in the top flight and then a blip in 2022/23 when Young Boys snagged it. I have also won the cup 8 out of the last 9 seasons, so as you could guess I have by far the best squad in Switzerland but it's of course always about European glory. I've been playing with a plethora of tactics mostly from the forums from knap but I've tried other peoples, it doesn't really seem to matter in the league as I thrash it most of the times but CL glory has really been fleeting. below are screenshots of my CL and EL runs. This was the first season that I used your tactic, and something to mind is my squad was not really built for a 4141 as I'd been playing a 3412 most of the time so my squad was more suited for that, I did however have a good budget so I was able to assemble a squad that was just fine. As you can see I did manage a CL Final run, where I even was up 2-1 at half time but Man City proved to good - unsurprisingly really. Here are my results, mind you I read this thread before starting and actually swapped my ST to Treq right away, but did use a F9 for some of the later CL stages, I'll post my main ST stats and the squad stats with the Starting XI selected to help. I'll be happy to provide more details if wanted. I'm going to run it for two or three more seasons and see if I can finally get my CL title. For some odd reason I can't delete the duplicate screens of my ST
  2. Yeah, mind you I did play with going from Positive, Attacking and two or three on Balanced but it never seemed to drastically change either the results or the in-game stats. I did this for all of my Serie B seasons also, below are the league stats.
  3. This is just some more numbers to help you, I played the last season on the old updated ME - ended up in the 9th spot after being predicted 16th. This season I'm actually bottom of the table 31 games in, I've played most of the season on positive so there is that tweak on my end but I did do some Attacking games and it seemed to leak even harder. No idea what's causing it just giving you some extra data if you want to include it. The literal only change I make when adjusting is just the mentality, now I know that can alter the tactic very hard but just letting you know.
  4. Thanks for that clarification of the roles and players to use, really helps when trying to scout for players and it also sort of helps me see how some of my combinations might have been a hindering in doing better. I got promoted the following season by winning the league and then stayed up in Serie B, predicted 17th and ended up 12th. One tidbit, because I was such a relegation candidate and seemed to concede so hard using Attacking I played around with only changing to stuff like Positive and Balanced and it seemed to be more efficient in grinding out results so that's something to know. Also since I'm on Touch I don't get half-time talks even so it's only really the subs that I am missing out on but I'm mostly using this team as a stepping stone to something bigger as they really don't seem to have the means to grow except by doing it very slowly so blitzing the seasons is more satisfying at the moment.
  5. So I just wrapped up the 3rd season using this tactic. I am on FMT19 and I holiday or instant results most games, so I don't really touch the tactic just try to get the right personnel to do the job. The first 3 seasons of this save game I was at Pro Vercelli, Italian Serie C side. They were predicted to finish 3rd in the first season after having been relegated from Serie B. I managed back to back promotions to the Serie A, in hindsight that was a little to fast but I still decided to tell the board I could survive my Serie A season and when I didn't I was sacked. I used my own version of a 442 where I tried to mimic Diego Simeone, the tactic seemed a little more attack heavy and my tinkering during the Serie A season just couldn't save me. I really didn't get a lot of rep for back to back promotions and the only teams that wanted to hire me were in the Serie C, so I went to Vitebese Castrense applied the tactic and have tried to better the squad as I go along. I came in being predicted to go 18th in my first season. We got 16th and survived, our squad was very lackluster but has improved steadily. In the second season I was predicted 14th and ended up finishing 2nd, qualifying for playoffs. The Italian 3rd tier has a very broad playoff setup, the tier is split into 3x 20 league divisions, winner of each gets Serie B promotion and 2nd thru 10th are entered into a huge playoff, with seeds being given based on final position, 2nd placed teams go straight to quarters, 3rd place goes round of 16, 4th round of 32 and etc. So despite finishing 2nd and getting right into the Quarters I lost there, just had one of those ties where I didn't finish my chances and got pegged to hard. Third season I really thought we had the quality to win our league and get promoted, it however wasn't solid and consistent enough so 4th place was the result, I went into playoffs feeling quite confident and it seemed to be warranted. I thrashed my opponent, mind you I had to play 3x home/away ties and ran most of my opponent ragged as the screenshots will show. I get a finals spot and play Benevento, one match at a Neutral ground to decide the promotion. What follows is a wrench in the heart and is on display here below. Following that are some screenshots that show my league record and such using this tactic and only really building the squad and sometimes choosing a preferred starting 11 before holidaying a month or two. If the next seasons doesn't net me promotion I'll move on to something else, probably start a new game and use the tactic from the get go so I can have my own squad more suitable sooner. Again I'd love it if you had like an attribute guide or suggested player style. I sort of have an idea for them, you usually have these types of B2B that are really more advanced players that bang in goals and assist a lot with and wide players that pose a huge goal threat so I've tried to go for those types of players and my best players are one of my winger and one of my B2B but it's still so helpful when trying to find suitable players to have an attribute guide especially this type of lower league management as you don't know any players really.
  6. oh ***** I wish I saw this before my 1st season in the Serie A with Pro Vercelli after back to back promotions. I went down after not being able to make my 442 work effectively and actually my own rendition of a 4141 flat was very solid vs top sides. Gonna use it for my Serie B campaign and hopefully bounce back up. btw I know in past you always stick to the tactic no matter what, is that the same still, no tweaks when leading or playing as a like favorite or underdog in big matches ? also you happen to have an attribute guide for each position like usually ?
  7. Yeah, I might have the mid block part wrong - presumed the combination of high dl / low loi was a mid block. But I guess that makes sense, also could be my fullbacks on WB/s bombing forwards as this came from a deep throw-in for me - still I've seen that exact thing happen more than once so figured I'd ask.
  8. How do I stop this from happening ? Both are just normal CD/d, no special PIs - tactic is a 442 with a mid-block, meaning I have an Offside trap, tight marking, extremely urgent pressing and prevent GK with a Much Higher DL and Much Lower LOI What PIs for the CD do I need to pop in for them to not do something this dumb. If the screenshots are not easy to see what happens, it's a counter on me - my CD loses the aerial duel on the wing but I still don't think it's right for my other CD to just CHARGE towards them and leave someone THAT free.
  9. welp this was weird. I had my skin set to touchscreen mode on PC and that creates this "bug" - sorry
  10. This probably isn't a bug per-say, but it's something I feel should be modified. So I've been managing Sport-Lausanne in Swiss for 12 years, I'm the god of Swiss football with 10 league titles, 9 of those being the top division, 8 cup wins, all coming in the last 9 years. I've made the club insane money with transfers, sitting at around 208M in profits. The club is in the process of building a new stadium, renewing the one that's already set to be ready for after the 1st season which holds 12.000 people, my average attendance has been 11k and up in the last 4 years. I get around 20 job offers each 6 months, from biggest clubs in the world, I'm a little over 4 star reputation manager and the club is a 4 star reputation. I've got a wage budget of 1.2M, paying some players 100k+, but whenever the boards offers me a new contract it's always just for around 4k p/w and if I try to bump it up even by 1k, or less they just never offer it and retract the negotiations - so I'm still on 4.5k p week - very similar to what I started out as. I just don't find that reasonable, I'm a club legend and want to keep going and will - this literally doesn't matter but I feel it's not realistic at all. Hopefully this can be addressed in some way.
  11. Agree, I love his input and use a bunch of his tactics, but I feel him having just a mega thread with like 3 or 4 reserved threads where he just posts updated tactics. He could literally do one post with 4 man back line, one with 3 man back line and some other variations - most if not all of his tactics work an attacking mentality but play very differently so even if he were to group them in the rankings he tends to post from topdog to underdog etc.
  12. I just had to let someone see this, this hurts, I've gotten the most rotten luck with CL Group draws, seeded at best 3rd for the last two seasons or so and 4th between that I've literally gotten Barca, Inter this season Real Madrid and City last season Man Utd, Leverkusen AND Inter three seasons ago Real Madrid and Marseille our first season - probably our easiest draw but our team wasn't really at the level to put up any fight. Inter beat me in Italy with a 87th minute winner, Barca humbled me at Nou Camp but I won both of them at home with a blitzing counter attacking football and thrashed Zagreb in both games - Worst part is I've had this happen before and know that despite all the ****ing rules - when 3 teams end up even, they just make a mini group and only account for results within those teams and my loss to Barca was to big. S H I * E
  13. Did that, I'm running more than 3 nations so that's a guarantee I remembered that.
  14. idk if this is a thread for just random people posting info on their games, if there's another one let me know, tried searching it and nothing really looked like it - I used to love those threads. But I just had to let someone see this, this hurts I've gotten the most rotten luck with CL Group draws, seeded at best 3rd for the last two seasons or so and 4th between that I've literally gotten Barca, Inter this season Real Madrid and City last season Man Utd, Leverkusen AND Inter three seasons ago Real Madrid and Marseille our first season - probably our easiest draw but our team wasn't really at the level to put up any fight.

  15. I'm actually on the PC version of the game btw - Totally forgot to mention it sorry, but I have this on the PC version ...
