  1. Could you please explain some important attributes needed for the players?
  2. I´d like to know some important attributes for the players that are needed in this tactic in order to re-build my squad. Thanks in advance!
  3. I started a save unemployed and accepted my first offer as the manager of Santa Clara, a humble team in the portuguese second division. In my first year we managed to win the league (early tactics, early patches) and the next two years we struggle not to get relegated but finally we saved our asses and managed to stay in the portuguese premier league. From that point on things got better and we finished 9th, 7th and finally 5th, achieving a place for the EURO playoff, where we lost. Next year we repeated as the 5th team in Portugal, and started my 8th year as the manager of Santa Clara entering the Euro group stage, after winning two playoffs, at the point of starting to use a tweaked version of this tactic, which is made of some ideas that were sugested in this thread. The tactic looks like this With this tactic and some shouts (exploit the middle, hassle opponents, get stuck in) we completed our best season ever: And also got to the Euro Cup quarter final: We were also runner-ups of the Taça de Portugal and reached semifinals in the Portuguese League Cup. Regarding to the shouts, i´ve been experimenting, but the most of the matches i started using the three mentioned above (exploit the middle, hassle opponents, get stuck in) and just against bigger teams i´ve felt like removing hassling opponents, and it worked well. It´s something you have to see in the match, see if your defenders are being caught too much out of position. Pitch size is standard and i´ve been using general training:attacking and match training:attacking movement until april, where i faced much stronger teams and i found it useful to change both trainings to defending and defending movement. Not very sure about this one You should not be asking for me to upload my tactic because the only thing i´ve done is what you can see in the screenshot of the tactics screen i posted above, as suggested by 44phoenix in this same thread What i can do is showing you my players. Let´s start with the sweeper keeper: My wingbacks, the brazilian´s on loan: The three central defenders: The anchor-man, signed him as a free transfer offering the best contract i could afford, kinda KEY for my team: My playmaker, i like him to be good at defending as well, but fast and dangerous because he goes forward a lot, you can see he´s not a top player yet but it works: My attacking midfielder, i love this guy although he´s far from being top class: My strikers. I bought the italian after selling a central defender for 15M, that´s how i got the money i needed. Word Class. The other striker performs amazing as well: Finally, i want you to see my transfers for the season i used this tactic. We´re a humble team as i told you and had to sell our stars in order to get stronger: I hope this helps. I´d also like you to help me because there are a lot of things that can be improved in this tactic and the players that suit the roles used. I´m not very convinced of how my attacking midfielder plays (should it be more like a striker or is creativity really needed as he doesn´t seem to perform a lot of through balls?). My playmaker is also a problem sometimes because he attacks a lot and i see my team performs better playing there a guy who can run, dribble, cross and shoot, but that´s suspicious to make my team weaker at the back. Merry Christmas everyone!
  4. as i implemented the tactic late in the season i used team cohesion very high and teamwork. Don´t use shouts neither oi´s
  5. I´ve tried "arsenal the unbeaten season" and managed to finish 5th in the portuguese premier league with a team predicted 13th (of 16 teams) and a quite poor squad. It´s important the fact that i implemented the tactic in the last 11 matches going for a record of 7w 3d 1l, winning the portuguese cup in my last match against giants Sporting de Portugal. It´s also remarkable that i had to play a striker as MR (position non suitable for him), as my players really didn´t fit into this tactic: I have one striker with good finishing and pace (i use it as my poacher, although he´s just 9 composure) and the DLF is 13 passing and 7 creativity (he managed to give some good assists), that´s all. My left winger is really an AMC (got some nice through balls) and my MCs are regular MCs with nothing extraordinary (14 passing and tackling). Now that i managed to qualify for the EURO cup i hope my wage budget allows me to improve my squad, because i´m of course sticking to this tactic
  6. i´m playing lower leagues so that´s maybe the explanation of my players' mistakes but i think the argument "your player didn´t score that one on one because he lacks in composure" or "didn´t cross because he´s only 9 in decisions" is pointless when you use the same argument to explain why the opposition did score or did cross. i mean, attributes of the players don´t seem so important regarding to the computer' s players as they seem to our players. it´s easy to take the blame on our own players' attributes but...why can computer score easily against me with a guy who´s just 5 in finishing or 7 in composure? pd:sorry for my english
  7. i got it from here http://uploading.com/files/get/99a9d27f/QPR%2BVersion_gangnam%2Bstyle_3.tac
  8. thanks mate, now about to start my second season with celta. i´ll look for what you recommend
  9. fm13...saved my season. i was struggling with celta de vigo (spanish 1st division, prediction 17th). switched to this tactic with 9 matches left, left match preparation to assistant (don´t understand very well how MP works in fm13 so i let him do the job) and got great results: 5w-1d-3l. 27 goals scored, 19 conceded. 10 goals scored by my striker iago aspas, who performed awesome in this tactic. final position:16th with 43 points. thanks very much. what should i strenghten? any key players?
  10. i´m using gagnam style version, following this: 1.in Opposition instructions,tightly mark opposition mcs,dl/r,amc,stcs. 2.If the formation is 4-4-1-1,just mark the fullbacks and amc and stc. 3.Show everyone other than cbs and gk onto weaker foot. 4.Put the amc as playmaker.He is the main man so should be someone who can play there.Pastore was great,so was Wolski and Howson for Norwich. 5.Dont put anyone on the throw in list. 6.Make sure the person taking the corner attacklingly has stay back. 7.Arrange defensive corner instructions with your players. 8.If you are losing or behind shift to all out attack from team mentality and if winning ultra defensive and if a very important match,you can also turn off counter attack,but i like it leave it on so that I can get another goal if possible. 9.Let me know what you think.Its a bit unorthdox this tactic,so you guys might not like it.But You can try the instructions here on the previous tactic as well.And it should work there as well.
  11. FM13. saved my season with celta de vigo. thanks to this tactic i managed to save my job and stay in the first division when no tactic seemed to work before. let´s now try for a whole season to see if it´s consistent. any tips? key players?
  12. i don´t know if this is the thread for bugs but i´ve found a few in minutes. the conversations between me and my staff are half in spanish, half in english (they were suposed to be in spanish). pepe, the centerback from real madrid, has 10 in acceleration and 11 in pace, but we all know pepe is one of the fastest defenders in football. i also don´t like the team squad looking so gray. anyway, this is looking good!!
  13. can you please put an example of opposition formation for every formation you choose? thanks mate!!
  14. I´m trying to tweak v3 to suit my players but i´m afraid of ruining the tactic. I change the settings of my strikers, wingers and midfielders matching their ability to cross, dribble, pass or shoot from distance. For example, i change crossing to often if a player has 16 or more in crossing. I also change "long shots" and "through balls" regarding his attributes at long shots, passing and creativity. Am i ruining the tactic or is it a good idea? thanks in advance
  15. Interesting point. I supose that if i use players who think fast (good decision, technique, anticipation) i can untick HUB. I´ll have a try. Thanks for your answer
  16. Hi, first of all sorry if this has already been commented but if so i can´t find that thread. I´ve downloaded a 4-4-2 that has "hold up ball" ticked for the 4 midfielders and i wonder if that is somewhat related to the strenght of the players to use. Am i right? is it better to use strong players when you want them to hold up ball? Thanks in advance
  17. sorry if it´s a stupid question but is it useful to stick to the attributes that the game find suitable for each position?
  18. using it after 10 matches using 4-1-2-3. first match, i win 4-1 but only shot 5 times (opposition did it 23, mostly long shots!!). next match...
  19. thanks! is it more appropiate for low quality teams than the original one?
  20. i´ve found out that i have two "strong" strikers (strenght 15 and 14) so i´m gonna try this tactic. i´ll post my progress!
  21. hi, i´ve finally reached the first spanish division with my Coruxo team (tiny district of my city Vigo). I´d like to give your tactic a chance but i´m interested in you gettting to know my players. I think i´ve strenghten my squad enough to avoid relegation but i´d like you to help me with my players and roles. Should i upload my save for you to take a look or do you prefer me to capture screenshots of my players? thanks in advance!!
