Gah! This place needs an edit function that works...

Forgot to mention that, with the second post, I'm using my other Leeds game to experiment with the tactic. Still having the same problem in that my defence concedes too many.

Orrah, when you go into a match, go into the tactics screen and select 'Opposition Instructions' and then select any strikers they are using (in the striker position) and put tight marking on always.

Also, if the opposition are using a AMC, move your defensive MC into the DMC position, this way their AMC will get closed down much more effectivly.

Another thing I do is put your DL/DR and defensive midfielder on hard tackling. Though if they get a yellow card make sure you revert it back to normal.

I've started a new game and conceeded 1 goal in 8 games using these tweaks.

Excellent tactic, won championship with West Brom 25 points clear of 2nd place Cardiff. Basically kept same team but couple of tweaks. Cant wait for version 5

Still not working. =( It doesn't matter what I do, my team still concedes far too many goals. I tend to scrape through against the easier teams and get soundly beaten by harder teams.

No idea what to do to plug these leaks.

For me, deeper defensive line works.

6 points in from the left.

Tight marking is also an option.

Play with offside trap too.

Your tactic is great!!! although my target man is not very good but my team still got a 2-1 victory with total domination on the pitch. my team hasn't got a good form for a long time untill I used your tac. your tac worked at once! but I conceded a goal by the oppoent's counter attack, although i dominated the pitch. i'll try more matches to see if i will offen concede the counter attack goal.

anyway thanks a lot!

hi all, which version would you say has been the most successful ????

I been playing V4 and i dont tweak or touch it.

Won the league with arsenal and liverpool and chelsea with it. Chelsea 1st season didnt let a goal in till December.

The most important thing about it is the target man and to have a back up for him if he gets injured. Klose was mine at chelsea and arsenal was alan smith. Both scored the most, assisted the most and got the higest average ratings. Klose would get 9-10 constantly.

Wingers too are vital. A great tactic for a good title contending team, a firm base to slot your favourite players into.

I'm finally going to succomb and try this tactic myself icon_wink.gif

I'll report back on my results (I'm gonna try it with Liverpool... I know prolly not the stiffest test - but hey i love em!) after 6 or 7 games.

Ok played some games with good results I guess, wasnt too impressed with letting in 3 vs Sporting, but I scored 6 so nevermind eh icon_wink.gif

The 3-2 loss vs Chelsea I was actually impressed with cos I played all my reserves/youth and only lost 3-2 away.

However losing 2-1 to Everton was infuriating as I just didnt seem to get going.

I'll keep going with it !

I dont think this tactic works post patch. Ive gone from winning game after game to losing every game. There might be some explanation as i have a crap ass man, but no i think its over. Target man regularly performing badly (kuyt and crouch) letting in lots of blunders, conceding late goals etc etc etc

For those who say that this tactic does not work need to look at their squad.

I used this tactic with Inter, went 31-6-1 in Serie A. I then used the same tactic with a Serie C team, and did poorly. Why? Because I didn't have good players.

It is foolish to assume that you can start winning as soon as you land on MiniMal_v4. You still have to bring in good players to make it to work.

All this sound's very good, i've been trying for ages to make my own 4-4-2 formation without much success, so it is refreshing to read about so much success using one. I am going to give this a whirl when i get home from work. THANKS FUSS MATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Won Northern Ireland League 2 with Chimney corner using this tactic, with target man turned off (no player was good enough for this). Had good variety of scorers, and beat a few Northern Ireland premere league squads in the Irish cup. Also won the Intermediate cup, and made it to the finals in the Intermediate League cup, semis in the Irish cup. Bring on League 1!

Good to see people still suing my tactic to geat affect, 99% of people generally seem pleased.

Just a quick note to confirm there will be no new versions despite the 7.0.2 update, as it didn't make any major tactical changes to thegame engine and so I feel dosn't warrent any form of update.

I've personally settle on a man-marking version of V4 myself with a couple of other minor tweaks....I may upload this but only as a matter of intrest. It's really only my personal settings and I wont be offcially supporting it in anyway.

Good luck!

Hello everybody, I'm new here since yesterday and i've just read all 18 pages (only went to the loo once btw). Very interesting and it seems that at least 75% of all Fuss tactics users are happy to do so. I could find v1, v2 and v3.But just like a lot of forumners i can't find V4 for download. Who can help me and many others????? Thanks in advance!!

FuSS I'd be interested in seeing your slightly tweaked tactic.

Are you still using v4?

Are you still able to beat the ranking thing by going to a 4132?

It's been a while os not even sure what i've changed but the basis is v4.

-I've weaked afew sliders here n there.

-Tweakd setpeices to better suit my team.

-Back 4 play man-marking.

-I No longer use counter attack.

-Might eb few other minor things

This isn't any form of improvment or V5, this is simply the kind of tweaking u should be doing anyway...this is just my tweaks in order to adjusted to my team. And as such probably of very little use to you.

---------------------

oh and yes i switch to 4-1-3-2 sometimes, but usually for touhg games not re-ranking. For re-ranking i simply turn counter-attack off and play alittle wider and a little more attcking.

I'm curious to know if everybody but me has had success with this tactic? icon_frown.gif

I just can't seem to string any wins together. End up drawing most of my matches and have recently started losing a lot.

It's all down to the defence, they concede far too many. I've been trying to tweak the team but it's not working.

Am I doing something wrong?!

Started a new Game with the latest patch 7.02. And having spent a good hour reading the the entire post I felt confident that I could have some success with the Fuss tactic sets. I chose to have CA off at all times seemed to play better without it.

I picked Blackburn Rovers as my team and chose V4 as my system. After eleven games I was snd in the prem only 4 points behind arsenal.

I managed a 2-0 win over chelsea, 2-0 oner spurs away. I beat liverpool 2-0 in the cup and 2-0 in the leauge and all this with the standard blackburn side, I was flying.

Then it all went horribly wrong I lost 5 on the trot and havnt scored in 4 games. I have read up on reranking and took off CA but still nothing what am i doing wrong guys.

Orrah, you gotta have good players in your squad. Having the tactic alone won't do it.

This tactic makes decent teams win, but does not make poor teams somehow win the league.

Used v1 of this tactic to win promotion in my first season with Hartlepool in league 2. Finished 2nd, on equal points but 3 goals behind on GD. Excellent tactic, only problems were when I lost I usually lost HEAVY, like by 3 or 4 goals, which cost me a top spot finish. Will be using v4 a lot more in League 1 as it seems better for defending. Congrats on the tactics fella's. Thank you.

----JUST TO MAKE THIS PERFECTLY CLEAR----

There havn't been any changes to the match engine (except for those relating to disciplinary offences). As such tactics that worked for 7.0.1 will work just as well for 7.0.2.

If this isn't the case for you then there's somethign else going wrong, I suggest you look at other area's of your team management (*hint - Learn to do good Team Talks - hint*).

Ok guys I think many of us have tried and had some sucses with the fuss tactics, But which do you all think is the best of the 4.

Big fan of this tactic an have it's had mucho usage with me trying to work wonders with Farnborough Town.

I have to say that version 3 is still getting me best results so far, no luck at all with V4. I do little tweaks here and there. For home matches I'll increase the tempo a bit and for away games I'll make the passing a little more direct.

hey guys i have one querry. as you have mentioned in the tips and tweaks part to close down a superb winger. but should we close down players like ronaldinho or gerrard or messi who are superb mid fielders but often played as wingers. do we have to close down all superb mid fielders like lampard, ballack or only superb wingers like robben, cole is a mid fielder but is often played as a right winger in the game. do we have to close him down just like robben?
