A first for me in all my years playing Football manager, using this tactic I've just had Rashford score four hat-tricks in consecutive games

When I test for online game tactics I use MU and Rashford causes a lot of problems.

Picked him up for free for my Chelsea season, offered them 90 million the season before

So ARGUS343P106 with attacking or structured is a good tactic for underdogs? Or do you have a better tactic for underdogs?

You play him as the poacher or on the outside??

Mainly as a poacher but he also covers the outside (right and left)

His consecutive hat-tricks  went like this

2x as Poacher

1 on the left

1 on the right

Do you think it’s his pace that makes him that potent

After two amazing years with Hertha, I went to Villarreal and achieved the CL-title in just two seasons

I don't know what to say to this tactic... there's no other tactic like that in FM18 :)

So I was takinga break from my journey save and decided to manage my favorite team Hull and to not make my own tactic this time and try this one out.

11 players start injured and the medical room says its a crisis. I'm having to use backup players on my opening day and start against Aston Villa. I´d settle for a draw. Well behold, my backup player with L1 stats scored 6 goals this game, something I haven't seen my players do for many years. So I say, good start and a good job breaking the ME.

I'll probably have to change my managers name to Knap on my save at this rate, It only seems to fair

nice. do you change anything for the big away games? i am having a lot of success and i know sometimes defeats are inevitable but even with all my league titles i always seem to lose like 4-5 games a season which are usually the big away ones. just can't get near them and you can just tell from the 1st minute you're gonna be in for a rough time.

Nope no changes, I've been really lazy with training as well and left it on Match tactics

I'm really aggressive with my team talks, I demand a lot before matches and if by half time the performance isn't great, I'm aggressive and tell them they're rubbish and to step it up

Well, I do not change anything aswell. Maybe it sounds a bit strange, but I've got the same problem often in away matches.

I've got a really good team, but away vs the big guys it's just luck. An example vs Real Madrid (they absolutely dominated us):

ah ok cheers mate. i have never bothered with team talks i prefer to just ignore them as they seem to have way too much influence on results. feels like there's some proper hidden intricate formula to them that i just can't be arsed with. i guess some defeats are just unavoidable though which is pretty good i guess in terms of realism, just makes me frustrated because i don't think i'll ever have an unbeaten season :D

glad to hear it's not just me then! i do win the occasional big game but the majority of the time it's just a constant stream of highlights for the opposition. i guess luck plays a big part like you said. i find cup finals extremely difficult aswell. always feels like i'm the only away team when we're at a neutral venue.

You can try counter or control.

Team talks should be like Fergie or there is a team talk guide.

It is not a high possession tactic unlike BLUE MATTER

I've tested mentality changes and find counter or control gives the best results, although not as good as attacking. For one off games it may be worth trying the lower mentalities.

ok cheers man. by the way when you talk about future tactic testing are you referring to mr l's website like he did last year?

If not winning there is no reason not to change to a plan B. Try BLUE MATTER GOODBYE or Volante to try and gain an advantage in a one off game.

They were trying to set up an automatic testing system, it has been promised but not delivered.

Hi !

 

You leave the team of the last match between 2 matches and you choose the same day or you erase the team selection at the end of the match?

Yeah, in the CL final vs Chelsea and it worked great (control) :)

I'm about to start a new save with some underdog team, will give the control for away games a go and post it here how it goes.

Just eave team selection to next match then repack.

Away games are the ones to try other options but if its tight in a home game may be worth changing. It is worthwhile just to have a backup plan to change the match, including the double T Tweak 415.

First season in the prem, I have won every league on the first attempt with Knap tactics and I'm hopeful I can continue this in the prem.

Has this tactic become weaker over the last couple patches? Seems like I really struggle against strong teams playing 4-2-3-1. Losing all those games home and away where I could beat better teams even comfortably before.

I just have one word for this tactic: Wow.

championship.thumb.PNG.4422d2a02b2bc6673f10cb9daf7e91cc.PNG
I didn't sign any world class players when I got up to the PRM but my striker Nahki Wells got 33 goals in 33 apps, won player of the year and the Golden boot! Nouha Dicko has also been amazing in the PRM considering his avg. stats. Now this season I just signed Moussa Dembélé (30m) & Michy Batshuayi (12,75M) and I except a lethal front line. My biggest weakness this season was that if one of my starting back 3 was out, then I was leaking a lot of goals in. But 2nd place in the first season in the PRM? All credit goes to this tactic.

There are 2 442s  MIDSOMER and GOODBYE, However with West Ham I would try VOLANTE Anchor BWM/ BBM or 2 Volantes. Also consider White Europe's tweak AWAY 451
