Blue Matter 343 Knap FM18

Recommended Posts

GOODBYE 3421 or ARGUS 3430 would be closest. A narrow 4231 has not shown a lot of spark this year, but may be worth trying last years as GOODBYE Barcelona is still solid.

How would you rate/place this among the huge amount of tactics you've already made for top teams like Arsenal, Spurs etc?

This has lower intensity as high intensity tactics may cause a problem for World Cup type competitions.

The best independently tested underdog tactic was tested (set up) with a top team.

Try using the tactic for easy home games and see how it goes.

For Away games try using say the White Europe Away 451 tactic

There's a heated thread in the General forum regarding any tactics with 3 Strikers being a "loophole" in the ME this year. It's always something every year, isn't it? Isn't every effective tactic basically a loophole?  If SI can't sort the ME issues out then that's their problem.

Could you update/post your 'Rough guide as what tactics to use' for this new 18.3 update with the tactics you have already tested?

Sorry for the trouble, just love using your tactics and i'm looking to try some new clubs.

Thanks!

Never thought of this one. :D

 

Yeah, the Strikerless 3430 for 17 was total plug & play. Didn’t need to change a thing. I was a legendary manager and could get a job at any top club I wanted.

Just set up a new manger for Man City who then bids 200m for Davies. Great for getting rid of Dross and you then have funds to buy players. BTW I use original squads in PL.

If you consider Lpool MC and Spurs, when Kane went off, even England tonight they are variations on 3 strikers, 343 against 352. so the ME is bang on trend.

Last year I was about 3 pts up with Arsenal compared to this year.

Hi Knap,

I’m currently playing on the IPad version of FMT18, there is still no “import tactic” option

can you post pictures of the player instructions please?

Thanks

What's funny about my question? You think "pitch size" doesn't matter?

And Knap doesn't use any OIs at all... Not even AM's OIs.

So you just lost a great chance to be quiet right here, since you didn't add anything valueable to this thread.

I don't do pre season, I take over for 1st League game of season. The AM does training and team talks, and no OIs.

So you don't even bother using Instant Result for pre season? You just don't have any pre season matches scheduled?

I'm not the manager, and have no idea about the pre season. This means I can take over any club in PL.but from 1st league game.

Pre season I would usually leave to AM, I have no interest in results  but would take charge if I need to play certain players.

This tactic is absolutely incredible, I have my Scarborough side i'm in my 4th season won promotion each season so i'm in the Vanarama national league (Old Conference League) currently 1st place 4 points clear after 30 games so i'm doing well.

I've just beat a reading side that's 2nd place in the Championship 2-1 in the F.A Cup, I cant believe it to be honest, With this tactic anything seems possible.

My side is supposed to fight bravely against relegation too of all things.

Thank you @knap

Another outstanding tactic. 

Took a job with Man City (2033-34) and went undefeated in the EPL and won CL my first year. This with a talented but aging (and overpaid) squad in some positions.

The tactics have very specific instructions for them to be efficient,. Once you change an instruction you need to monitor the effect but many tweaks can work as the tactic is based on a solid foundation.

I have been using this tactic for almost a season with Liverpool. AMAZING first 5 months, scoring 4 and 5 goal more often than not, and then my strikers almost stopped scoring. I dont really know what happened. Decided to go for one of your other tactics that are based around the same formation. First game in gave me a 6-1 against Everton, using WOF, so maybe things are back to "normal".

Simply great tactics, man!

So I finally managed to win the PRM, Man Utd had been dominating the league and the year before I was a runner up but lost on GD with as many points as them...
Also won the Champions League for the first time.

I also took charge of France for the World Cup. 34 games won in a row, I have not drawn or lost a match since taking charge.

Hull and France is an interesting combination. Did France ask you to be manager?

Haha yes it was France and Spain after the Euro that gave me offers. Seeing as their players in this FM are very, very strong I thought to myself "why not" now I'm just going to manage them until I lose a game with them since my main focus is on Hull City.
