Mr Hough FM13 First Patch Tactics.

Recommended Posts

Using Hough's original "Feed Me More" tactic my Newcastle side is hopefully starting to get it. A 4-0 home win over Manchester Utd. Cabaye missed a penalty as well.

Hoping my side kicks on now.

Gareth - Did you ever manager to work out a way to tighten up the defence on your tactic? I've been playing as Man U and destroy teams at home but playing away its very leaky. Superb tactic than won me the FA Cup and Champions League in first season. Had it not been for poor away performances I would have won a hell of a lot more..

Is anyone else having success with Gareths tactic? Just started using it myself.

I have one question though...is the target man supply supposed to be set "to feet" or "run onto ball" ?

On my game it comes up as "to feet" but that differs from the original team instructions of mr houghs tactic - which gareth said he hadnt changed.

I have been using it and I think its a great tactic. Lots of goals whilst still being good defensively, but as with any tactic you have to get the right players and it seems there is a lack of real quality wingbacks around so I am having to spend time re-training fullbacks to be wingbacks which takes time. All in all though a big thumbs up from me :thup:

I am still trying to sort the defence out. I posted earlier today about a few changes that seem to be working with man utd and i have played about 20 games now so far and defence is ok while still scoring well. I have just started a forest save in the championship to test it with them. They have decent enough midfielders and centre backs but lack good wing backs so I am going to see how it works with them for a season with it first. Pre season gone ok including a 2-1 win at home to fiorentina.

Dear all, a new patch, fixing a lot of problems, has just been released by SI.

Good news since Dave seemed to be waiting for it for a long time.

Tranmere season nearly done and won the title quite easily with this tactic, results went a bit pear shaped towards the end of the season as I lost about 3-4 players who were on loan until january and was unable to replace them with quality, so my squad suffered a bit. Impressive result vs Arsenal in the league cup!

Played three games with it since the update and it's looking even better.

I didn't concede many before with these tactic, but when I did it was often because my central defenders just stood still when a through ball was played to the opposition striker. Since that seems to have been corrected/improved, I have now managed to keep three clean sheets in three games. More impressively, I have allowed the opposition ONE clear cut chance in three matches!!

Let's see if it continues but it looks promising.

Doesn't seem to be working anymore with my team, conceding two times more goals, still scoring a lot tho. But I only played like 10 games since the update, so I can't say for sure yet

Tactic worked awsome for me. Managing Cardiff City, first season I got promoted from championship (2nd place) and lost FA cup final to Man city (used Koflok's goals galore) Even thou I got some great results the tactic was leaking goals when playing away, barely got wins when not playing on home soil so I knew I had to make changes for the premiership, So I gave the "feed me more" tactic a shot.

First season on promotion and I go on to win the Premier League! and got to the final in Euro cup, lost to Rennes, must say I was very unlucky to loose that match, own goal from my keeper(mistake) and created more and dangerous chances in the game. But still cant complain. Very happy. Didnt make any major transfer because I didnt have the budget to do it, I bought Bellusci from Catania for £7,5m. The most important part in the game is I guess the team talk, when you can master that and have a good tactic it really takes you far.

*Playing the Euro cup was due to the fact that I got to FA cup final and Man City already was qualified for CL.

I'm currently doing a career save with Rangers, With a new tactic that i have made, I'm battering teams in my division and also teams in the first Division in my cup games, I only lost 1-0 to a Full strength Celtic side and i Domianted them and took them to Extra Time too. This was all before the new Match Engine.

The patch seems to have made the tactic better Defensivly because of the new Match Engine, I'm gonna test in the Premiership and also in the Championship but going really really well with Rangers so far.

The new formation is a 3-2-2-2-1 3 Centerbacks - 2 Wingbacks - 2 Central Midfielders - 2 Wingers - 1 Central ST.

I'll keep you informed as how i get on today.

p.s. Looking forward to this tactic. I've been using Gareth's modified tactic and I'm just about to sell my wingers but maybe I'll hold fire if you're going to use them.

Yey, patch out and now Mr. H - The King of tactics is working around the clock for us to be able to play and have fun =)

You're doing a fantastic job Mr. H ! When you go to bed each day, I want you to remember how many of us who really appreciate what you're doing.

I second that. I've always found Mr.Hough's tactics to be the best of FM forums. Can't wait to try the next one for this new patch update.

It's half and half for me. I'm suffering from the excessive injuries people have been mentioning. I'm also seeing the defence completely collapse now. We get mullered 4-0 at half time away but usually come back. It's producing silly results like 4-3, 5-4 etc. I didn't think it would be that whacky from such an update but what do I know!?

This tactic seems to have lost it's shine with the new ME, at least for me..

I used to dominate matches with my short passing, making my wingbacks go forward and move into the box, but now with the new ME, it seems I can only score on counter attacks

My striker was through on goal. One on one with no defenders near him. He trapped the ball, did a 360 pirouette, dummy back heeled it, pirouetted again and then unleashed a 12 yard unstoppable shot into the left corner.

pure magic.

Going to agree here. I've been doing a game over and over to see what's going on. It seems every single shot on target is flying in regardless of keeper/defence quality for that one match. C'est a l'vie. I'll ignore it and move on I suppose, but then I'm going to go ahead and delete the save file. I think I'm gonna go back to FM12 and stay there until the final version of 13 is out and if it's not workable it's back to scrounging off other people's tactics I suppose or just sticking with 12.

I genuinely let myself get fooled by SI this year for the first time since 08, I think it's probably best never to buy another FM again unless its for a fiver from online sales. I'm sure they won't miss the money anyway with their apparent fanbase.

How's GR tweak working ? And the other tweaks of this tactic? Anyone experienced with results after the patch ?

Since the patch my teams' performances have been terrible. I'm in the second season of the game and before the patch I was 4th in the Prem with Forest. I'm now languising around midtable and falling quickly. We used to play great football, dominate possession and create lots of chances. Now the match highlights fly by with hardly any attacking plays for me, and the opposition always look like their going to score when they go forward.

I'm playing as Ängelholm in Sweden. Im in my second season in the highest league and my squad is probably the worst in the league(finished the first season one place above relegation spot). The first game with the new patch I lost 7-0 away. But after that I've played 8 games and lost 1 and drawn 2. The tactic does not create as good chances as before and the fullbacks are basically nowhere near being as good as with the last ME.

However the tactic feels better defensively and even though the opposition always win the ball percentage I seem to have the more dangerous chances.

It's official, the patch has definitly killed the feed me more tactic.

I can't have any game with more than 5 or 6 shots.

I was first in the league with Liverpool, and now it's 4 games 4 losses. 0-1 3 times...
