Thanks a lot Knap. I will try to hire good scouts in the game in order to buy 4 stars potential players whatever their attributs are...hope it will work.

Sorry, one question came to my mind.

Does that mean that you only hire players according to the position role => that mean a box to box for box to box midfielder, an advanced forward only in attack, a ball playing defender only in centre defense etc. ?

I only look at positions not roles. Fast forwards and CDs

Don.t forget to check hidden attributes from scout reports and personalities and determination. Although in FM 17 I had a CB in VS with determination 1 and was one of my best players.

knap listen, I've changed my mentality tostandard because I think that at a laterstage smaller teams are setting up on thecounter and we're hoping for it.

I posted a few tactics with a CMD or DM which may help prevent counters.

Changing the mentality worked/ Otherwise if you send me your game I can take a closer look at issue.

Apologies if this has already been asked but I couldn't find anything.

I've been looking at the 424, however my players are currently IFs that I use from your 4231. Is it possible to get an IF version or to change the Wingers to IFs and not lose any of the tactics effectiveness at all?

If not, then I will have to bite the bullet and retrain my left footed players to left wing etc.

Generally changing roles will make the tactic less effective. You probably do not need to re train players but it is an option.

Also a 442 would be a better option than 424.

Knap i am running the long term save with your p09 all cups. I am using geniescout to scout players best suited for the role.

But you say its okay just to scout for position cause that will make scouting a lot easier.

and i must say 442 is really lovely to watch, great plays.

In essence you are looking for the best talent for these positions (with Genie you can use CA/PA and positional ratings on right hand side) You can adjust positional ratings for your own Club DNA, and would be a useful tool to have in game)

GK

WBs (more attacking orientated than FBs)

CDs

WBs

MC D can be a DM/MC

MC A can be MC/AP

FS 

Screenshot of how Genie shows positions.

Because Genie shows CA PA if you need more info on Genie best to PM me.

Depends how good the squad is in relation to league, especially if AI controlled until 2051.

Think I will use the new DLP/MEZ in tandem with the double Mez one as a home\away duo.

Had a few troubles away from home and seeing some games out in my first season in the Prem with Leicester, but I'm still right in the title race.

The p103 can be useful as an underdog tactic and perhaps the CMD version as a basis for a SUS.

If some knapa tactics do not work for you try to change the mentality from offensive to positive / standard. Let me now give you an example of the same matches against Bournemouth ... Playing offensive tactics I lost, and when I changed the same tactics to the standard I won and it was 6-1

Hi Knap

Have you tried changing the roles on the BPD's to see which is best over a season? I.e one on stopper, one on cover?

I test other roles, but it is often a combination that works and that has to be done playing games. Also I do not use a test league that controls variables. If you can set up a test league like that, and have a powerful computer you could test many combinations.

Takers are either set up or I leave it blank. SPs have to work with tactic but I am trying various different options as the game is overriding the set up, which can leave one on ones or no player as the short option.

Got ridiculously unlucky. Arsenal to win their first title since the invincibles and the most clean sheets :rolleyes: top trolling lol  

Got hit with huge injuries to star players. Both my top striker and defender plus a few others in the middle of this fixture pile up at the end of the season

Disappointed my team bottled it but i'm sure we will crack it next year.

Cheers Knap, finding the 442 inconsistent with Dortmund but think it's the strikers not being lethal enough & the central defenders getting done for speed. Is that something you've noticed affects the tactic?

Strikers are a having a lean time this year and most tactics use a high press which can expose defenders..

I repeat, if your knap tactics do not work (in my opinion they are one of the best), change mentality to positive / standard ... Note that he is testing his tactics at MU or Liverpool, where you can play offensively because they are known for good defensive.

Great tip! Followed your advice, set mentality to standard and transformed a mediocre Greek side (Atromitos) into world beaters with zero transfers. Cheers guys!

Tactic sets can be very useful going from SUS Counter control attack.

Thunk I may try traditional wingers this season. Inverted didn't really work as much for me in the PL like they did in the Scottish league.

Probably due to the quality of defenders reading the cut ins better. 

Plus i've found the through balls expected using inverted are few and far between due to strikers movement being a bit weak in this years FM 

Will report back if it improves my results.

Played not for a few months..

I would use a 442 and for wingers play a Rashford type players, so you can use 4 strikers with a AMC DM combo in midfield.

oke thanks,

So what is a decent tactic if i want to play with 2 strikers instead of 3??

 I played FM 18 a lot with 3 strikers, but i heard that FM19 is better with 2 strikers..

First season using p109 I won the championship with 101p and won Champions League 4-0 against Real Madrid, used p103 and p106 in the early of the season till October where I switched to p109. Very solid tactic Knap.

1819championship.thumb.png.0a778a0f1619f598005ee49db2db55b5.png

 

No OI, pre match briefing for my assistant, individual training set for the very same role the players plays in match (eg: Salah is the Pressing Forward and Firmino the Poacher and I never switch them so I set the individual training accordingly). Everything else is just about plug and play. I also use the tip given by matiz96 wich is change mentality to positive / standard in match when i'm dominated or very exposed to counter attacks and it works like a charm to hold the score or push the other team to leave more space to score.

Now I'll try to win the PL and C1 again with the FA Cup where I lost against MU this year.

I mostly use scout reports stars and how they play, unless looking at a comparison between players. The Good player forum usually has good ideas of players that work.

Genie scout does have a player rating guide, which may or may not be useful, but should at least be a guide. Top left hand corner menu of Genie

I did not post target man as I would avoid that type of striker. Fast forwards tend to work best and the role is generally unimportant.
