Piranha 14.3 Hull Prem Champs in 1st Season!!!!!

Recommended Posts

UPDATED 26.03.14

Tylerbode: PIRANHA 14.3 (For any team)

In FM09 I created a famous tactic called 'Piranha'. It had almost 50,000 downloads. I called it 'Piranha' because the team hunted and attacked like piranhas. This one for FM14 is similar. Very often with this tactic you will see 7 players in around the opposition box creating a scoring chance. Being a back 5 though there is always defensive security. I won the Prem with Hull in first season without buying a player. In half a season with Liverpool, two times I went on a run of 6 games without conceding. See screenshots below. I hate losing goals which happens a lot on FM14. In my popular 'Blitz' tactic I wasn't happy about the goals I was conceding. So I have spent a lot of time creating a defensively sound tactic without losing too much in attack. It is an evolution of 'Blitz'.

PIRANHA TACTICAL OVERVIEW:

* 'Plug and Play' team tactic.

* Choose largest pitch size.

* Very solid defensively.

* Good goals spread from whole team.

* Training & Teamtalks must be adhered to.

* No OI.

* No PPM training required.

* Players can be retrained well (eg. Sterling as CWB).

* Down to ten men take off CF in v1 and DLF in v2.

Training:

If starting a new save add German League 'unplayable' and choose to start from the German start of season in June. This gives you extra weeks to make tactic fully familiar.

Pre Season:

General: Team Cohesion, Very High.

Match: Tactics, 50% (all the way to left).

Untick 'Rest before game' & 'Rest after game'.

In Season:

General: Balanced, Average.

Match: Teamwork, 40% (one from left).

Untick 'Rest before game'.

Main attributes for each position (/ = either or both):

GK: Reflexes, handling, one on one, agility.

BPD: Positioning, tackling, jumping, decisions, concentration.

CWB: Pace/acceleration, dribbling, crossing, stamina/natural fitness.

BBM: Passing, positioning, stamina/natural fitness, work rate/teamwork, first touch/technique.

F9 & CF: Finishing, off the ball, composure/anticipation, first touch/technique.

*For V2:

BWM: Positioning, tackling, strength, decisions, workrate/teamwork, stamina/natural fitness.

SS & DLF: Finishing, off the ball, composure/anticipation, first touch/technique, dribbling/flair.

Teamtalks (maintains high morale)

Kick-off: 'Nothing'.

Half-time: Winning: Calm 'playing well, keep it up'. Drawing or Losing: Assertive 'far from pleased/show me something else?.

Full-time: Won: Calm 'well done, I'm pleased, good win for us'. Draw or Lost: Assertive 'far from pleased/we should have won?.

Tylerbode is back!!

Sounds great mate, but would love for you to make a more conventional tactic. 442, 451 etc.

YES YES YES just what i was sort of looking for as spurs

Any advice how to use eriksen (bbm) and lamela (f9) in this tactic

You can retrain them. I used Coutinho as BBM and worked ok. Lamela could play F9 once retrained too.

Thought I would give you an update with my Swansea season...

Followed everything to the letter, but so far in the league I have played 10 - won 4 lost 6. Not a great start. Will update you at the season's end.

are set pieces included in the tactic?. Not sure why but corners are being hit to CB who is lurking on the edge of box.

Very interesting, even more as it's so similar to the much-discussed silk&steel tactics.

Will follow and check how people fare with it

Tyler_bode, I think this tactic isn't suited for AS Roma. So far I've played 18 games in the league and I'm on the brink of getting the sack. So fare this are my league-results: 4 W, 4 D, 10 L.

To me, the main problem's my defence. The central defender in the middle is constantly playing out of position so when the others play the offside-trap he's the one who's messing things up to allow the opposition's strikers to race through my defence to score quite easily. I've tried Benatia there and now Castan but neither of them seems to have a high enough position-attribute-rating to prevent this...

Tactic's nearly fluid, I've used your advice to start with the German date which gives you a rough 2-3 weeks more to train. That's a good tip anyway :) .

Have only played a half dozen games with this tactic but so far it's been fantastic. Very entertaining! Downloaded it earlier this evening. Then just happened to be tinkering around on a Porto ssave and it occurred to me that it would suit the Porto squad quite well.

At your listing of the needed main attributes the BWM is not listed. Is that because of he needs the same attributes as the BBM??

GK: Reflexes, handling, one on one, agility.

BPD: Positioning, tackling, jumping, decisions, concentration.

CWB: Pace/acceleration, dribbling, crossing, stamina/natural fitness.

BBM: Passing, positioning, stamina/natural fitness, work rate/teamwork, first touch/technique.

F9 & CF: Finishing, off the ball, composure/anticipation, first touch/technique.

*For V2:

BWM: Positioning, tackling, strength, decisions, workrate/teamwork, stamina/natural fitness.

SS & DLF: Finishing, off the ball, composure/anticipation, first touch/technique, dribbling/flair.

Oops, I obviously read over it! Thanks anyway!

No thank you. I just updated it there as I had forgot to do it. Good luck and let me know what you think mate.

Shocking 3 games in 3 losses... Playing as Liverpool:

3-1 Everton

3-2 West Ham (2-0 up at half time)

2-0 Peterborough in the cup! Kolo Toure Sent off!

How do you cope with Suarez suspended for the 1st 6 games and countless injuries?

Hey there

I've been playing as Crewe with this (V.2) for one and a half seasons, the first season was great, we were promoted second in the league, vying for first...now in the championship after a good start we're on a six game losing streak. I've been following the instructions you gave and have bought players in that match your attributes above. Any suggestions?

Probably have to set up a team meeting and talk to each player to motivate them

why did this never get more feedback? only 32 posts? i tried every tactic there is on 14.3 and none came anywhere close to the consistency and reliability of this one. v2 best tactic this year. totally under-rated and under-publicized!! I was overly impressed. would love to make the middle cb as a libero...

Spot on mate. I have just plugged this in early this week and went on a 25 match unbeaten run immediately!! Top of the EPL with 7 to play and in the quarters of the Champions league in my Stockport save. Fantastic tactic and so solid defensively with 19 goals conceded in 31 league games!! :applause:

I tried to use it with FM15, having huge success with it in the past and the new game doesn't recognize it.
