They are weaker option compared to MR ML and you can use same player.  451 4231 41122 use AMR and AML

Hello Knap! you said Genie Scout is a great tool to find players. How do we use it? searching for attributes (in this case, the highlighted ones in the game?) or for potential rating to fit the roles in your tactics? Thanks in advance, i´m a bit lost in terms of signing the right players.

Many ways to use GS depending on level or what players you want to buy.

You can search for new gens or just us CA PA and positional rating,.

Top sides will have high positional rating. The positional rating using a weighted average system for key positional attributes, which can be changed for personal preference. Probably best to use a combination of CA PA and positional rating.

I've added a LL key attribute table.

HI Knap - Wanting to start a lower league save either in the conference north/south - Which tactic would you recommend to use for home/away?

Most will work from recommended list but there are a couple that did well when testing with Kingstonian, which is a Dafuge challenge club.

Perhaps the easiest way to consider which players work is to use the test team as a guide. If I use say Pogba in the CM role look for a similar payer. 

In general the midfield will be 1 DM/BWM type player and a AP type players

The problem is I test with a real save so there are injuries and squad rotation, so there will never be just the same 11 players playing the tactic.

If I used a test league without injuries morale issues etc, it may be possible to identify a best player fir However, this would not reflect a real save unless you can clone a first team. The other aspect is that you actually want players with different qualities to change how a tactic plays if needed.

Knap i´m flying with your 4132, using your advice of following genie scout´s positional ratings. Thank you!! I have another question: for individual training should i train the roles in the tactic or maybe the roles that are more suitable for my players? thanks again mate.

Roles of tactic will give a minor boost in decisions. 

You can also see an estimate of attributes if they reach full PA.

I would assume they help maintain the position. I don't use Genie or Editors in my saves so I would never know.

Are there any traits in players which are preferred or not preferred?

Using the 4132 primarily.

The independent tests exclude them, so could be considered not necessary. It is also impossible to actually test if ppms help or hinder a tactic. I do not specifically train any in LL teams, even when reaching PL.

Attacking movement ppms should be worth training and most top teams that I test with have players with cut in from wings etc.

Just wanted to thank you knap.  The manager of my irl club NYCFC is Dome Torrent who was a longtime assistant for Pep and came up the idea of using IWBs at Bayern Munich with Phillip Lahm.

I started a York City save and have been able to promote them up from the National League North to the Premier League.  Was able to promote every year except for a two year stop over in the Championship.

In 19.3.4, used a combo of your 442/4141 with IWBs and now am using the 4132/4141 IWB combo in 19.3.5.  Highlight so far was zbouncing Chelsea and going on a deep FA Cup run in L2.

The 4132 that you and tff have remind me of me of Bielsas 3313 with IWBs.  I wonder if a 3 ATB verison is doable in FM, but it probably would only be useful against the rare team that uses 3 strikers. 

Thanks again.

P109 442 is best Home sub mid tactic. Logically there may be an advantage of playing home/away tactics or Easy/difficult games and be prepared to change on how the match develops.

This is a tweaked 4141 P109 FA trying to win League with Newcastle.

Knap did you used the 4141 for away games or every game?

Top team I would use highest pt scorer and cup winner which is P112.

There is a dm tactic but very few independents tests have been carried out as 441 4132 or 4141 just trump them in testing.

Hi knap, i tried many tactics, but i couldn't find a tactic that has a good defense.  I tried:

!!!!!!!!!19.3.5WULF4132PFDMIWBSPKnapP112ALLCUPSNOLOSS.fmf

!FM19BEOWULF4231KnapPressP103.fmf

!!!!!!!!!19.3.5WULF442PFPWMKnapP110ECCC.fmf

With all of this tactics i struggled in defense and i lost almost every match away. At home they are good (not with big teams), but away the tactics don't work.

I don't know what to do or what tactics i should try. With defenders that have 4* and still receiving a lot of goals. Any tips or a tactic that i should try?

@knap I’m about 4 or 5 seasons in and dominating games in chances and but my conversion rate is really poor any tips ??

The tactics are set up with top teams so the AI will be defensive. Testing with high reputation also makes tactics play against defensive AI. The long holiday season test just showed normal variations between seasons.

These are from a 2019 season and 2034 season again not showing a major variation. As long as winning leagues and cups I would just see how they pan out over the seasons.

hello knap. I am playing with Manchester United and i am in year 2036. I Always used gladiator tactic, but afther 3.5 it,s not giving me much fun anymore. Could you have a good tactic for home and away where my striker(s) score goals and i have fun again. At this moment i am winning a lot, but not have a lot of fun. greetz, Daniel

442 is a strong formation this year with the AI as well. I would either try the 4141 which strengthens midfield or 442 matching the AI player for player. The LL recommended tactics may also be worth a try.

Hey @knapquick question, if its not a bother, which one is the highest scoring tactic, for top clubs? Even if its not the absolute most optimal, points wise.
