The Barcelona games are always a joy to watch (despite defeated in ECC this season), and there are many posts in the forum already, talking about Barcelona tactic, just here to mention a few: https://community.sigames.com/topic/219564-the-barcelona-style-my-interpretation/; https://community.sigames.com/topic/421360-terminate-fm18-handbook-on-pep-guardiolas-barcelona-433-and-the-tactic-pack/?tab=comments#comment-11091496 https://community.sigames.com/topic/397755-peps-barcelona-very-fluid/?tab=comments#comment-10696523 While by watching some match vedios of Barcelona on internet, I recently got some new ideas and realize that people may make some mistakes when interprate Barcelona tactic in FM, this inspired me to write this article to show my idea, and always welcom for suggestions from you guys. Ok, let's start with some real matches, for example the 14/15 semi-final in between Barcelona and Bayern Munich, Camp Nou. In this match, Barca play a rugular 4-3-3 as they most times did. I was curious to see how they build up the game, and find something interesting to me: First, they do play short passes but, they do not play slow. On the contrary, they play very fast, both by passing immediately instead of keeping the ball on feet and wait, and by dribbling to create space. So I think some traditional idea about tiki-taka: short passing, slow down and restrict from dribbling, may be wrong, at least not for Barca. So what is the problem? No. 1, play short passing with slow tempo and less dribbling may make it "too slow", so it is hard to create score chances; No. 2, try to play "safer" doesn't mean it is really safer, because when you focus too much on keeping the ball on feet, stand there and wait, it is easiar for the defending side to rob the ball, or to organize their marking system, if that, you may also found it hard to find free passing space for your teammates. In both way, you may loss the ball. So in my idea, people should pay attention on bulding up the balance between keeping the ball and attacking, too much on keeping possession TIs, for example the combination of short passing, dribbling less and low tempo, may be counterproductive to the possession, especially when against sides with high pressing urgency. Second, they do use high line in defence, but not with high pressing urgency. Their mid-fielders and defenfers place high up the pitch, but mainly to restrict space with a compact defending shape, they rarely take risk to leave their defending shape to press. Their foreward three may pressing more urgent occiasionally, and only when they succeed to force the ball possessor to stop play (may be back to Barca goal) , the other Barca players will pressing up to sorround and cut off connect between the ball possessor and his teammates. There may be no proper TI in the exist game engine to simulate this kind of temporal pressing, but I will attribute the defending style mentioned before as: high defensive and engage line+normal pressing+marking+tackling harder. In my opinion, risky defending TI doesn't mean you can rob the ball back better. The problem is, too risky defending setting, such as a combanation of high line and pressing, may make you vulnerable to fast side, as they may beat your defence by dribbling and fast passing. Also, pressing may fail when you can not afford enough players compared to the opposite team in particular zones. In both ways, you may be in risk and it is no help to win back possession. Third, proper roles combination will help to keep possession. The most important role I think is the DM player (Busquets). He never dribbling, roamming or play risky passes, but simply to deliver ball to forward midfield teammates. When Barce in possession, he always give a recycling choice for the team, and when lost possession, he will protect the CDs well, so I think the best interpratation in FM is the Anchor man. Another interesting role in Barca tactic is the DR/DL players. Instead of crossing from byline, their prior job is to support the midfield to cycling/recycling the ball, they sit narrower, and mostly narrower than the wingers. Beside the foreward three, at leat one CM and one fullback (usually Alba on the left) will try to get into the opposite zone to score, this should also be considered when build up the tactic. So, as analyzed before, the final screenshot of the tactic is as below. The mentality can be changed when facing different opponents, also depend on home/away. Some PIs I will give is: Pressing more for CF player (maybe also godd choice for wingers); Marking tighter for WB and IWB; and sit narrower for WB. When facing teams with high pressing/risky mentality, I may also change the SK into defending role and use low risky PI, just to avoid stupid mistakes. The foreward five may be changed for special purpose, for example, to the below two screenshots. It is helpful to strengthen the possession and attacking risk from the middle pitch, or to restrict the opponent buld up play, especially when they have one or two DMs (In that case, if we don't place enough players in that area, they may just passing short and waste time if they play with low mentality). But be carefull if the opponent play with high tempo and combanation with wings/fullbacks, they may overload your WB/IWB to make risk, so consider the first tactic. For now, I have test only about 10 matches without OI, against both top and weak opponents, with different tactic styles. The result show that with this system, the average possession is between 60%-65%, and shooting chances between 15-30, at the same time, defence is solid too. So I think it works well, but still need to test more. Most importantly, it looks really like how Barcelona play in real life, so this is exciting! So guys, welcome to try it and wait for your suggestions to further improve it.
In a shock move, Gary Rowett has left Stoke City for reasons he's yet to divulge. Short of options to replace him, a short term deal was given to one of the youth coaches, with the thought that it was the Championship, and they shouldn't need too much to get promoted back up. The coach, though is a bit of an idealist, and believes that tiki-taka is the true beautiful game, and wants to play full on Stokelona, not only that but with future transfers being exclusively British an Irish talent. So yeah, we have a lad who's desperate for Stoke to play pretty continental football, with home nation players, if that wasn't enough of a mixed bag, he's the spitting image of a hard rock legend, name and all... The board have also indicated that they expect him to develop players using the club's youth system. Which is handy, as it's not exactly a great youth setup they have... Then again, it's not bad either, could have it decent in short order. So that's the story, starting with Stoke, British and Irish only(barring kids from intakes), and all tactics have to be variations of the tiki taka and possession systems. They're the systems I'm looking at for now, but I expect plenty of tweaking along the way. Lots of things here I generally don't do, from multiple playmakers, to style of football, or even playing without a pure defensive role midfielder. First order of business was to drop Tymon into the senior squad and starting eleven, next was to take Verlinden off the loan list, and again, make him a first choice winger. While we're in the Championship, might as well develop the key prospects.
Ok so I'm onto my 2nd save on the Beta already (3 season stint at St Pauli) and I'm going with my club - Cambridge United. This is where I started last year: However, instead of Beckball, I'm going to do quite the opposite. We're going all out attacking, possession football with a big focus on youth development. Ultimate aim is to turn Cambridge United into England's answer to Barcelona's La Masia. This is a long term project for sure! I will be using the following rules: Use one of the tiki-taka or vertical tiki-taka presets, adapting player roles. We want to dominate possession and play classy football. Maximum of 3 senior signings (over 21s) per season (HG at club players exempt) Maximum of 5 signings in total per season (HG at club players exempt) HG at club players with 3* potential or more are given game time Here's how the club looks at the moment. Not much to shout about, a pretty standard League 2 setup. This is how I've set myself up, true to real life as possible. Let's go!
Hi there, here's Pep Guardiola's Barcelona Tiki-Taka433 for FM2017, may this tactic can help you to terminate FM2017. some goals（ nearly original Man United players except incoming Almamy Toure ）: pass the ball to the goal in 50s since the kickoff when facing Fenerbahçe. beat Everton's Bus since a throw ball.(fxxk my english) Mentality the tactic includes 2 mentalities: control& counter, when the opponent's sitting back, use control; when the opponent's crazy in attack, use counter. Width& Defensive Line it's extremely important to keep your formation compact by choosing the proper width& d-line in pressing-pass tactic. my width& d-line settings are on the basis of Premier League teams' 105m×68m size pitch, tweak them when needed. if the pitch is shorter/longer, drag back/push up your d-line a little bit; if it's wider/narrower, reduce/increase your width a little bit. OI when facing quicker ML/R,AML/R,tick never closing down. Other Tweaks a:when facing 442, use your faster CD to handle the opponent's faster striker. b:when facing 41212/4312/4141/433, don't closing down the defensive midfielder/deepest midfielder in OI. c:when facing 433/4141, always tight marking& always closing down& hard tackling to the opponent's single striker in OI; set your HBd to CMd& close down much less&shot less often; increase your team's width a little bit. d:if your player gets yellow card, tick ease off tackles in his player instructions ASAP. e:more combination pairs in midfield like:HBd+BBMs+APa... so now you know that when facing 433/4141..., don't closing down the opponent's single DM ; always tight marking& always closing down& hard tackling the opponent's single striker; push up your HB to CM positon to help your AP&CMa.
