  1. Hi, no. I'm using the d/l in the first post. So i should add 'Play Through the Middle'. Any others? I see ' Work Ball Into Box is mentioned' which is enabled on the tactic d/l.
  2. @Mr U Rosler , so gave the tactic a spin... Team: Bolton Media Prediction: dead last (starting on -12 points) Transfers In: none Secured 1st spot on the final day with a win against 2nd place Oxford: Goals were well spread out among the squad. However not a lot of standout performers in the average rating department. Yellow cards and suspensions at the business end of the season also caused problems. I struggled with filling the demanding CWB spots, as Bolton are weak in this regards, and are basica
  3. Not yet. But planning to today. I have a particular underdog team in mind. The 5-4-1 performed very well in FM20. 1st place finishes with Brescia in 2022 and 2023.
  4. Further update. The 5-4-1 tactic has also worked out very well indeed with Brescia. Media predicted finishes were 18th and 15th for seasons 2019/20 and 2020/21. However actual finishes were 7th and 3rd respectively. Third season is looking even better so far.
  5. 2020/21 Predicted Finish of 15th. Personal aim of top 6/7 (Euro Cup spot). Finished 3rd ! Excellent finish. Was 2nd for large parts of the second half of the season. The team really came together in an attacking sense with Vignato doing a superb job on loan, Tonali bossing midfield and Varnier-Papetti-Bonifazi trifecta dominating in defence. 2021/22 Predicted Finish: 10th. Board is looking for a top half finish, a quarter final appearance in the cup and to be competitive in CL. They've also added another Club Culture item: Make the most of set-pieces.
  6. He's doing a job but nothing special - will likely move him on in the next season or so. He has quite a low Workrate attribute, which i can't abide. I like to build my squad with high values in Workrate, Teamwork and Determination - as these are the core attributes throughout the squad I'm building.
  7. Decided this year to take a break away from my usual Atalanta save; normally I like to go for a team just outside the top 4 and aim to make that extra step to CL football. So have opted for.. Brescia, who are relegation candidates in the beginning. Have gone with Brescia because they have a nice jersey but mostly because good Youth facilities and a small stadium meaning there should be scope for expansion. Note, I'm playing on Touch so to make things a touch (heh) harder have also decided to limit myself to transferring in italian players only. I've opted for a back 5, so as t
  8. Hello @Mr U Rosler, I've tried out your setup on FMT20 with some reasonable success - nicked a CL spot in La Liga with Bilbao. Made one modification by turning one of the B2B players into a DLP (s). I found it gave more variation to midfield play with some horizontal movements. Also played around with the Set-Pieces to take full advantage of 3 CBs. Tactic would likely be even more successful with another team that didn't have the same transfer restrictions regarding Basque players only.
  9. Agreed! The B2B is the absolute heartbeat of the setup. And together with the DM and MEZ, they make the perfect midfield triumvirate - I think if any of the three roles are turned to playmakers, it would take away from what makes the system tick. Fwiw, still having great success with beta version of thetactic on FMT
  10. Xmas 2022 and my Atalanta team are topping the table (closely followed by Napoli). The massive Nov/Dec break due to WC 2022 was a bit weird and caught me out - I thought my game calendar was broken at first! Only major outgoing in the summer was a 22yo Kulusevski to Leipzig for about 30mil. Kept the rest of the squad together and of note, added (1) powerful centreback Çağlar Söyüncü (5mil) to the pack, and (2) this regen from Brazil for 8mil who I have high hopes for (if only he can get over his consistency issues). Progression to the CL 1st knockout round has been straightfor
  11. Juve are pretty average in my game. Consistently getting only 3rd/4th spot.
  12. Still have him knocking about as a squad player. His attributes develop very well but he hasn't exactly set the place on fire. As of Aug 2022 has value is about £40mil.
