I would try Parisienne Walkways P101, as did well MR L Sub top. I had a good season WITH P107 442. Could also try an underdog tactic for harder games.

Knap, do you ever use asymmetrical formations? What's your thoughts on them this FM if you've tried them?

Last one was probably Ramble On in FM 16, although I had a non uploaded version last year Comfortably Numb.

Just plug and play?  No mentality change?

I'm still thinkering if it worths to change the mentality at the beginning of some difficoult matches.

Perhaps from attacking to Cautious or Balanced

that was 22/23 season , started the game with Sicilian which got me promoted to Prem easily enough but either  through the poor players i had or bought just struggled to kick on . Saw Davy's post on page 99 about the success he was having with 3 saves using it i thought i'd restart the season with it and never looked back .

 

Had been fortunate that all the previous tactics i'd tried before Sicilian i'd noted all the best youth and fringe players at decent prices so when Sicilian got me promoted i was buying well and they fitted well into the new tactic i guess . Still had a small squad to pick from but the goals were spread around 5 of front/mid 6

using that tactic i promise you i never changed anything , straight out the box as is . i left all team talks to AM unless at half time i thought they needed telling so used aggressive but that was it . Aside from the odd shout of demand more during the game i just watched for substitutions

All the tactics are offensive, the underdog tactics should be better defensively.

@knap, what Tactic would you suggest from your collection for Arsenal using the following squad, having trouble trying to pick one.

Leno
Tierney, Ruben Dias, K. Ajer, Bellerin
Torreira, Bruno Fernandes
Vinicius jr, Ozil or Haaland, Pepe
Lautaro Martinez

Would like to fit Haaland and Martinez in same team, but i guess that could leave me short in midfield with the two wingers i have.

Hi @knap I'm currently using Wulf 4132 in my first season at Hearts, going pretty well, but can pick up a lot of cards, what tactic would you recommend, below is my best team in the current formation:

It is better to manage cards as there are a lot of factors involved. You can remove the hard tackle if confident of result

Hey, i'm using 4132 WULF. It's seem to be good with newly promoted team. But i take a lot of yellow cards like always. Usually during the match when a player takes a yellow, i give him "ease off tackles" as instruction and it's ok. But you cant give this instruction for defensive winger so they can have a red card easier. Which role should i give to the player for give him this instruction ? Wide midfielder def support ? Winger ? something else ?

I have been using IW on S but WM on W s are alternatives. Maybe use the players preferred role on S as that would have a marginal increase in decisions.

Arsenal

I used CEOWULF 442 P107 but you could try Oxford and Parisienne walkways at home and say Argus 352 or Northern Soul away, maybe even 4141.

Have you noticed an improvement with IW’s as not a lot of your tactics use them currently?

I thought I had used them with a 4132. I could be wrong as I have been making 2 tactics tonight.

Was going to say a few of your tactics use IWs? Any named with IW do right (not to be confused with IWB).

You are not wrong. There was one 4132 with IWB+IW.

Because I test with top, the pts total in tactic name will give an idea of what is best for top club, Top Clubs should be able to use all of the tactics.

Top Club say 1-5 in League (Lpool MC etc)

Sub Top 6-11 in League

Underdog the rest

Can also use Top and Sub Top a Home Tactic Underdog Away or

Top Favourite Sub Top Evens Underdog if Underdog

Because of transfers and the pace of a squad the strength of teams may not correspond with Real Life. A way of judging is the odds at start of season not at beginning of  save, or use Genie Scout as it gives a % ranking. However no method is precise and will be a guess, A good way of starting is using a home and away tactic as there is a home boost in FM.

Yes a home boost exists! I just discovered that it's often very good to start with balanced mentality away and vs better teams. (Especially with Wulf4132 which has 5 roles on support) Then if you dominate shots+possession, eventually go positive or attacking mentality. Balanced all the way away seems to work good sometimes tho. (And never forget you can always still lose 2-1 when the opponent scoring on their only 2 shots on goal....)

I enjoy Wulf4132 alot atm, also because it has very many different roles all over the pitch. In comparison to for example Argus352 which has no winger roles (except WBs) and I missed them. Argus concedes less goals tho.

Mentality changes are useful and hopefully anyone who uses them can post their favourite combinations for the benefit of others.

For me the FM20.2.3GOODBYEbalanced4132APDLKnapP102 is the best tactic using Nottingham Forest (first season). Thanks for the great tactic! Don't know why I can't get the 'better tested' tactics to work, but this one at least does.  Second for me is FM20NorthernSoulMRHKnap5-3-2P107ECFA


Thanks Knap for all you do!

If you look in OP at FM 19 tactics a few are highly recommended for LL. These scored over 100pts with Kingstonian (Dafuge Challenge Club) in VNS, the other tactics are still capable of winning VNS.

Hello @knap, I have been trying Sympathy leipzig vol 1 on a bournemouth game i just started, But i concede so many goals. First friendly of season i lost 8-5 and the two first matches in league i lost 5-3. Am i doing it wrong or something? Any recomended tactic for Bournemouth? Btw would you consider Bournemouth sub top or underdog?

Why Bournemouth? They are currently 18th not sure about FM rating.

I think its a fun team, on paper i think its a sub top, but maye its a clear underdog. I think it was rated on 16 in FM by "media" So maybe sicilian would be better?

Are you new to game as only a couple of posts? I would say underdog if you have not added players to strengthen squad.

Im quite new yes. Have been reading a bit on forums to pick up some tips and so on for a litte while, but not posting anything, I have added a few players to strenghten squad especially DM and another good striker, also a new BPD. Players i know to be good from previous games. Never tried the Sympathy tactic before but i felt Bournemouth fitted quite well to it when i looked at the existing players and "best" roles. But it was almost comical how much i conceded tbh. Especially when i read so much good things here on forums. So i guessed i had to be doing it wrong or something.
