Knap - can you make a 4312 narrow formation tactic since i lately saw a lot of youtubers playing long carrers with this formation and haven't seen any kind of this tactic i would be happy to test it

Checking FM Base tactics I can't see any 4312s. I have a 3412 which is probably average.

FM 17 and FM 18 were pre LOE and still had structured and fluid options.

Maybe most so far, not keeping a record. Won all the cups as well

Hi Knap! Odd question, but do you think that setting manager experience at the start of the game has any impact on performance? Cheers

Yes.

Someone tried Lpool with a lower reputation and found the results were not as a good over the season as with correct reputation. There appears little point in not starting with correct reputation.

With the Dafuge challenge you have to use lowest reputation, but at that level it is not normally a problem.

Predicted 7th subtop/underdog, first season with SympathyKnapLeipzigUnderdog4222. Record points and wins tho rotating with hot prospects in a B-team alot of games. This tactic made me learn and enjoy the Volante + IW roles and their long shots. Very happy, thanks @knap

1) It's the first season I managed mentality. It seems crucial in FM20. Almost never used attacking (some attacking duty roles tho). Check how offensive/defensive the opposition is. Start with Balanced or Positive (at home). If they are Defensive dont go above Positive. If they are Attacking go Cautious or Defensive and you will counter attack alot. There is a home bonus so sometimes you can use one notch higher mentality at home in general. But also depends on how good opposition. Mentality works just like in real life and you will get a feel for what mentality is a proper choice. 

2) It often takes 15+ games before team cohesion and morale is good. I started with very poor team cohesion which brings early draws and losses.

3) Substituting players with low ratings is also important in second half.

4) Even if you manage everything there's still a random luck factor aswell just like in real life. Always have to accept a few draws and losses. Build a good team with good team cohesion + morale and you will win in the long run.

Got promoted  and won the league on the last game of the season to the PL. Scared to death of going to the PL with the defensive record I have though, really think it's probably happened a season too early. May use Preaching Blues 4141 hopefully gives me a bit some defensive stability next season.

Winning PL league 1st season with a promoted club is very impressive.

What were transfers as normally it is very difficult to find PL quality players on promotion that want to come to Club.

No I got promoted from the championship to the PL :lol: I'm literally just hoping I stay up in the PL next season :D 

Winning it first season would be pretty crazy, I conceded over 70 in the Championship I just happened to be the top scorer as well, only way I managed to win the league. So looking to tighten up for next season.

Tactic Spreadsheet

http://bit.ly/knaptactics

 

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

Not tested yet, but perhaps a good all rounder.

@knapAs a Led Zep fan I had to give Ramble On a go!  First game at home - had to adjust mentality throughout the game, but looked good.  FYI if you are wondering who Beckenham Panthers are, I got bored and tried the create a club option (replaced Burnley).  Its good fun, you just clear their squad and use the budget to fill the squad (of course Burnley's is pretty small)

I've been giving the double T high scoring tactic a try and i haven't got a clue how it works but I'm blowing teams away in my West Ham save. I'm playing it on switch. Well done Knapp.

For some reason my star AML has been not been playing quite poorly with this tactic. 

Looking at the PI, he's not comfortable cutting inside with the ball. Changed his position to W and his ratings skyrocket, and overall results better.
