Recommended Posts

Which 442 did you use?

Any feedback on comparison between how the same tactic performs in FM 20 would be useful.

What did you use for QPR last year?

 

 

I’ve never managed qpr but looking for something that will get me steady results and improve the club gradually

Well @knap, i have to say the 4132 no loss is still working really well on beta.
I never used it in FM 19, never giving up on the 442 PFPWM112. Hell i liked the 19.3.4 version so good i never even bothered updating to 19.3.5 one.
Pressing in 4132 giving the opp lots of problems and they often loose the ball inn midfield, which we exploit really good.
Game against Leicester in SS almost perfect, them having 0 shots at all until we got a bit tired in the 80 minute and went from attacking to balanced mentality.

No tweaks. Switching from att, to balanced when leading with 2 goals. Or 1 if against top team.
Off course there is no instant result, so my in game management skills with motivation may be throwing it a bit off here.:lol:

Saving energy with a control tactic makes sense when in a good lead to save legs fo next game.

Agreed. Now i found a instant result skin, so now we`ll see if results stay the same.

Knap - Which 442 would you recommend to use as the most stable in Fifa 20 beta?

I would still follow the FM 19 Recommended list.

There are a couple of tweaks I am making which have improved results compared to just the FM 19 tactic, but still testing the best options.

Amazing stats Knap, looking forward to what you bring out. I will stick with the first 442  from this thread. Are you finding the 442 a good formation this FM?

I would say 4132 is still top formation but 442 is higher scoring.

hey knap,

I ve been using 442 with AF with man city and  getting good results 19G 18W 1D 0L .
However
1.wingers are always shooting whenever possible and not crossing like they used to in fm 19. In 3 v 1 situation they always strike first. Is there a way to tweak some instructions in order for them to pass.
2.strikers ain t scoring (aguero, gabriel jesus, lautaro martinez, moussa dembele). after 20 ish games they average at 5-7 goals which is quite depressing. wondered how it worked on your side and if you tweaked something . 
3. Most goals come from midfield

ME is horrendous especially 70-80 yd passes being pinged around the pitch, and the feedback thread is full of the similar issues that you mention. My recommendation is to get a player like Pogba and he will be top scorer and use commentary only.

1 more goal - How many did Pogba get?

Not so many actually. Things are behaving more normally with the 4132. McTominay doing absurdly well at dmc. Strikers scoring normal. I switched to instant result before Everton game, havent conceded yet with IR.

Always tested with Instant Result back in FM 16 so should not cause any problems. I assume no match plan which is how we tested.

I usually start saves with smaller/lower tier clubs. Really been struggling to find effective tactics so far for the '20 Beta. 

 

!!!!!!!19.3.5BEOWULF442WAF(P103)KnapP106ALLCUPS.fmf 

 

Appears to be a good fit in my Crystal Palace save, though we still can't beat the likes of powerhouses Man City & Liverpool but we are currently in a CL spot (3rd) so I can't be greedy. 

Results:

I also always start a new version of FM with a lower league team and chose Havant & Waterlooville in the VNS this time around. Surprisingly I am getting good results with the following tactic in the beta version so far: !!!!!FM19.3.4BEOWULF433WMKnapP103ECFA.fmf.

433 seems to get the strikers scoring but I agree regarding the comments about 70 yard passes, no one squaring the ball to a free player etc so hopefully the match engine gets a good tweak in the released version.

And yes Knap, please upload the tweaked version as I may switch to this at the end of the first season.

Not fully tested yet, but I can PM.

I need to look at 43, but was always good for strikers.

Any chance of PM the tweaked 442 (103) 106?
 

Spurs are massively down rated this year!

And Man U are massively overrated.  They're always near top of the league in all of my saves and Ole is the 2nd coming of Sir Alex.

Knap - testing the newest 442 from from the first page, it is PSG I am managing but I am unbeaten in about 20 matches, scored 60 goals and conceded 6 or 7. Working great for me

Not a good idea to change tactics n a winning run, but I can send tweaked version if you want to compare versions.

Try Argus 532. It's a really stable one defensively
