FM14 – 14.3.1 VanGaalUtd, 3-2-2-1-2, A New Lease Of Life

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have never uploaded a tactic before, but I am a regular visitor to the site. I have a long term save going with the team I supportMan Utd, it's been going very well using a variety of tactics downloaded from here. I decided I wanted to try to recreate the system Van Gaal has implemented at United, and I think I've done it.

The tactic plays a lovely brand of football, goals are scored right across the team, and it is very secure at the back. As I said I have long term save going at the moment which is in season 2020/21, as I have read in the past the game seems to get easier the further in you are with all the regens and so on. I decided in order to give the tactic a proper test I would start a new game with United, the results have been steady and pleasing as the potential is there to be seen.

THE TACTIC

As you can see I have tried to implement Van Gaal's formation.

There isn't anything spectacular about the set piece set-ups all set to mixed deliveries and players placed in a variety of positions.

FIXTURES

I played quite a few friendlies to aid in tactic fluidity.

Very pleasing set of results.

As you can see I haven't played a great deal of games but really wanted to share and get some views from you guys.

Like I said goals spread right across the team.

OTHER INFO

Don't let assistant manager do Opposition Instructions, they come with the tactic.

Put tactic in all three slots seems to speed up familarity.

OOh nice, i will test this out, once i go to another club. I have many wingers and would hate for them to rot on the bench.

You could attempt to re-train them in wing back positions.

of course i'll provide feedback . 1st to friendlies were both draws ( 1-1 and 2-2 )

but not too concerned at that. just need to get that tactic familiarity up.

evra scored in both games so not sure if thats a sign of things to come :)

will provide more feedback later on

It could well be a sign, Rafael has 7 goals in 20 games, so far, from right wing back for me.

Love this tactic, I'm in 2017 with my Newcastle team and have just beaten a still strong Chelsea team 8-0! Love the way the football is played! It just feels right, well done mate

1 match played - 3 - 0 away win again manchester city :) let's see how it goes. Still need to sell of some AMC's and Wingers and get me 2 more strikers en CB's.

The pre season friendlies all went really well except the Gary Monk memorial game away at Swansea which ended 0-0.

Brilliant tactic.

Have used it with Mansfield Town and have got promotion from League 2 to the Premier League in consecutive seasons. Managed to finish 2nd in the Championship playing some magical football, with a squad and budget just about good enough for League 1, never mind the championship!

In December in 2nd season at Celtic, unbeaten in domestic football the entire time (not much of a surprise) only dropped 6 points in the league.

Most amazing thing however is my performances in Europe - 1st season got out of a CL group with Arsenal, Dortmund, and Marseille. Then knocked out Barcelona and Arsenal before losing to Real Madrid by the odd goal in 11 across two legs in the Semi-final.

This season with 1 game to go in the group, I have beaten Dortmund and Anderlecht twice and drawn away with Barcelona.

hey man just want to thank you for your tactic, so awesome!! I played with United as well and totally wiped out everyone in the league. However I seemed to fall short on the CL because the European teams seem to do well against this tactic. Nonetheless I congratulate your awesome work :):):applause::applause:

Came across this tactic yesterday and thought i would give it try as wanted to start one last game before FM15. As ive never managed in Germany i thought i would try this with Bayern Munchen. My first 3 friendlies i won 7-0, 8-0, 7-1. Played Muller as the shadow striker and in the 3 friendlies he has scored 10 goals. The football is amazing and the defence is very solid. I'm surprised that not many people have tried this tactic as of yet.

Currently testing this tactic with Argentina to build tactical knowledge. I have won the large majority of my games and won the Copa America easily although the South American teams at the time were poor. I am now in the Confederations Cup and England narrowly beat me. My problem is that it doesn't seem to beat the big teams that matter. Previously tested with Spain and Arsenal and had the same problem which lead me to ditch the tactic because I couldn't figure out the problem. Is there any idea's that you think could help? Any tweaks etc?
