  1. @coach vahid No Pis, just the roles and TIs as you see them. If I am playing as a worse team I would change the SKs to a SKd, and lower the tempo to "much lower"
  2. Thought I would share my interpretation of the system. On paper it looks extremely aggressive, and it is. I would go as far as saying it plays some of my favourite football I have been able to recreate on FM21, and it echos OPs posts in a similar fashion. My main aim was to obtain that W shape build up with the IWBs tucking in and the wingers staying wide. So far I have tested it with several elite teams (PSG, Juve), and they are absolutely steam rolling through teams. I have ene tried it with Burnley of all teams, and whilst they don't have the same quality, for example their dribbl
  3. Some results with AS Monaco below. Predicted 6th. Currently sitting in 1st. Only the 1 loss to PSG, and they are so far ahead of everyone else in the league. AS Monaco have a better standard of player than Newcastle so the results are more consistent. Didn't watch any of the games, this was all done on holiday. No signings. Poacher - Wissam Ben Yedder - 21 goals and 5 assists in 18 Appearances
  4. I have tried this tactic with Everton, Leicester and now Newcastle. I have taken Newcastle to 5th, with a few signings to boost areas we were lacking. Diego the 35 yr old brazilian who used to play for Werder Bremen has been excellent as a Trequartista. The striker in the poacher roles is lethal. Needs to have pace.
  5. Have to say this is a fantastic tactic. Ofte with tactics you might get good results, with pretty much the same exploitative goals scored over and over. I have tried this tactic with 3 different teams and the goals have been really fun to watch. Another thing is that there are loads of great highlights to watch, even when watching on key highlights. Good job!
  6. Good luck mate. Well reasoned and thought out post. I hope you have success. I must admit your attempts to nail it have inspired me and I am trying all sorts of permutations to get it working. I like the idea of no Tis and balanced mentality to see how the roles interact with each other.
  7. Has anyone got any idea how to implement a style like this again? I feel like with the change in Team instructions, especially with in transition options and lines of engagement off the ball, the parameters have changed and I am not sure how to follow the principles set out.
  8. Haha worth a shot I guess. I am currently in the process of rehashing one of Cleon's old Art of Possession formulas to ee how that fairs on the new ME. Initial results are promising, so if its got any legs I'll let you know.
  9. Another test, which albeit not fool proof is to use the Rate My Tactic App. I did that for the Control Possession preset. Appreciate it isn't your tactic, but indulge me. The tactic scores very well in terms of solidity, and that certainly seems the case with the ey test and results. The control possession preset, and by extension what you have produced, doesn't produce goals, but at the same time very rarely do you get absolutely drubbed. The penetration score is okay. I tend to find that top heavy tactics do far better in this area. The support score is very poor, especially d
  10. Heres the 4-3-3 control possession variant. Instructions and role selections seem fairly self explanatory. Being honest, I haven't fully ready your posts subsequent to your opening post, but
  11. @Christopher S have you considered using the tactic creator, and the control possession pre set, and then tweaking it to fit your vision? Some of the TIs might give you some inspiration?
  12. Do you have a full list of PIs? Would be keen to try the tactic out.
