FM 20 Tactic List and FM 19 Recommended Tactic List

Recommended Posts

Did well for me in 20.1 as TH 93pt version. Also Tequila. P107 442 works well with Arsenal so worth a try with Spurs

The 4231 ha done well with MU and Arsenal so perhaps a sub top tactic.

I've only looked at BLUE MATTER 433 DM with Inverted Wingers.

Is blue matter updated for FM20? Got a link possibly? Appreciate it.

Honestly that 4231 has worked for me at Preston, Rangers and especially Ajax. Played about 12-15 games with them all and it's been really fun to watch.

4231 is 5th sub top which is decent for 4231.

Recommendations are still same but excludes new tactics.

Still waiting for MR L to start testing.

Im wondering did you watch some games while you testing your tactics? Because in my opinion its not all about winning im also want to see beautiful football. Thanks for answer.

It would be difficult to quantify the aesthetic value of a tactic. These tactics tend to be higher possession than most, but not as high as many would desire.

I've done 3 different holiday seasons.

I'm getting better results with SypathyLeipzigKnap v1 than with the mafia424 (in my chelsea test and my belgian third division weakest team test). Liverpool test is about the same.

One of the better tactics I've tried, but with my holidaying tests, SypathyLeipzigKnap v1 still is the best for me

just downloaded this one and I agree working really well at the moment but early days...

Any tips for using this tactic Davy ? Im with a lower league team so inverted wingers and complete wing backs are hard to find !!!

Any attributes to focus on etc....

Sicilian P101 and FM 20.2 Northern Soul are tested ti be best underdog CA 120 Tactics.

1 win, 1 draw, 3 losses using these two tactics with Crystal Palace. Finding ball over the top gets us every time. Just not finding this game enjoyable at all this year!

Tested Beowulf 442 (Attack) & Wulf 4132 (Attack). My personal feedback will be as follow:

 

Beowulf 442 will have plenty of attacking chances, but give up a lot of chances for oppositions as well. Great attacking football but can't get results consistently (even for big teams like Man City).

 

Wulf 4132 seems more "balance" (between Att/Def) and better overall tactics. I have got amazing back to back comebacks against big teams (using Everton) with 10 men!!! Just adjust to play 4131 (remove 1 striker) on positive/cautious mentality. Currently, I am sticking to this tactic even for my Man City home games against smaller clubs. Great set pieces too!

@knap I'm playing with Sympathy v1 and really enjoying it.

just had a questions, would I need to look for the best players in the position/role that is selected for the tactic? or should I look for other players, because the players play different than the selected role because of the PI's that are set?

So will good segundo volantes do best in the DM segundo volante slot, or do I need another type of player? (I know TFF for his tactics mostly recommends other type of players than the role that is selected in the tactic, which makes it kinda hard & confusing)

There is a risk playing a high DL and if your defenders cannot deal with the balls over the top, try dropping DL down to lower if necessary for any tactic

I would ignore roles, apart from training, just try to use greentsh for position.

For a DM you will find players that can play both MC and DM position, they may are may not be good volantes

When you look at basic PI for roles there is no real difference from a player point of view.

Ok so what you are saying is, just look if they can play in that position, and take the best player for that position, and ignore the role suitability?

Surely Stargazing will go straight to top of treating league! It is amazing!

Not for sure at all. All Knap tactics are kind of amazing. No other 442 has beaten 4132 Wulf P112 yet on recommended list, not since FM18 AFAIK.

I don't over a season test. Playing the role and training role should improve decisions so long term worthwhile.

I've tried several tactics now, with several teams Sympathy 442 Leipzig tweak, with Lille, Beowulf 442 With Brentford (Several seasons in, in the Prem with a Europa League quality team) and Stargazing 442 with HSV in the 2nd Bundesliga and I have the exact same issues, with every team, on every save, with every tactic.

Home games are absolutely terrible. Below 40% possession, getting absolutely smashed by smaller teams. Doing quite well away though. And, the most annoying of them all, I have about 20-30 shots with only 2-3 on target, and about 15-20 off target every game - Home and away -. These things happen with every tactic, on every save.

Anyone know what the issues might be, because this is really starting to annoy me.

Cheers

Hi Knap,

 

Which of your tactics has the least goals conceded in 38 games? I love keeping clean sheets and winning 1-0, so i’m looking for the best tactic defensively. 

 

In FM19 I was a big fan of your Pilgrimage and Argus 451. 
 

Cheers!

Even you parked the bus the opponents will find a way with one CCC to win you. My opinion this year is that the current ME is the worst ever.
