Hi @Totalfootballfan

Recently I have used your ANHILATOR V1 and FIGHTER V1 tactic, but only FIGHTER V1 tactic works out for me. I am managed to finish 3rd on my Real Sociedad save in first season but I still conceded a lot of goals.

Into the second season, I have followed your advice on pick the right player for the tactic, method of training and shouts during the match, but sometimes it is very frustrating to play a match where I record 20+ shots and 10 SOTs but still lose. A lot of shot is either go straight into GK or over the bar, most of the goal comes from set pieces and long shot from Midfielder. Forward is quite poor only score 20goals in my first season.

What tweak should I look to change this situation? Thanks for your advice (Sorry for my grammar)

Hi,

My advice are simple: use Cerber V4 tactic or Fighter V2 tactic, keep improving your team and glorious results will come :)

Hi,

I'd say there are many effective formations to test against but AI teams that use narrow formations with 4 at the back almost always get the worst results in my tests so I don't see a point in spending time on testing against these formations and I'd say these formation could be safely excluded from testing, especially, when there won't be any further ME changes

 

maybe you misinterpretated my question.

I just want to simulate through the year being without job. I just want to see how some editor changes work and it would help me a lot if i know which basic tactic performs best for ai teams.

"the best tactic" for AI is a very tricky question... for example, let's take Liverpool, the best players in the team are Mane and Salah but they don't have any rating at all for the ML/MR positions so if you change Klopp's preferred formations to 4-5-1(DM) then he won't pick them in the starting elven so it'll have a huge impact on the result so Liverpool will be having the best results using 4231 or 41221(DM) formations even those formations aren't the most effective

Cerber v4 has to be the best tactic I've used on this years edition. Finally found a tactic where my striker actually consistently scores. 

This is my season so far

Lets assume i would change there ratings to fit them into the new tactic. So 4-5-1(DM) is more effective than 4231?

Agree with this! I dread a long throw on key highlights as I know the keeper claims it and the opposition team counter and create a good chance.

Pain in the ass aint it!

 

Im not criticising TFF tactics, he's the best by far I check here everyday for something new. Just always room to improve possibly

could you just pinpoint more what type of players i would need for DM, CM and AMC positions? i read the OP obviously and other comments, but just to reassure me that im thinking right:

for the DLP support role: i look for a defensive mid that can pass and create
for the CM  attack role like you said a Milinkovic, Koke type so a box to box type with emphasis on attacking attributes
for the AMC i look for passing, technique, creativity and quickness. like a Hazard type of player

Hey TFF, just a big thanks.

 

I have played FM since championship manager 98/99 (I was 8) with amazing teams Athletic club Bilbao, Parma or Juventus

 

Since FM16 I have played with tactic I find on internet, jessautralia, knap and TFF (the GOAT).

 

I remember in FM17, with TFF’s tactic. I played in 15 countries (every continent) in the same save with no lose during 7 years.

 

My target is simple, build a team in buying wonderkids and have XI with CA 160+ and just 9 substitutes  DC   DC(loan)   DR   DL   DM/MC   MC/AMC   ML   MR   ST with CA 145+.

Top XI just plays big championship match and UCL and substitutes play every other match. Like this every players play minimum 25 matches => always 100% condition and nobody complains of game time.

 

Cerber V4 is amazing, however ST don't score a lot.

 

Keep you and your family safe.

Hello TFF, hello guys,

I need a tactics for my second season with Leicester.

For my first season, i relied on the tactics of TFF (Cerber V4) which worked pretty well until the middle of the second half of the season when I went on the losing streak and dropped 4th place.

I want to play in 4-2-3-1. I have a lot of opportunities that I cannot convert and I often take counter attack goals .

below my workforce

I sold Ricardo Perreira and i bought Draxler and Mbabu.

A big thank you for your help !

Best regards

If you are going to change the rating to fit players into tactic then such as 4411, 4411(2xDMs), 442, 442(2xDMs) would be very effective for AI teams

Hi, I put my set piece takers according to your OP but during the game my CB’s are taking the throw ins sometimes and corners are taken by MC for example. Is there any way to put the position as the set piece taker and not the actual player? 
 

Example, right now I’ve chosen my first choice rb as first right throw-in taker on right side. Even if he is playing my CB takes the throw-in sometimes. Is it a bug or what am I doing wrong?

Hi,

It looks that when it comes the corners takers setting the position as the corners taker works correctly but when it comes to the throw-ins takers setting the position doesn't work correctly and sometimes the CBs take throw-ins instead of the WBs so the only way to be sure when it comes to the throw-ins taker is setting the actual player

TFF,

 

Have you considered looking at the corner and throw in routines again?

99% of the time the goalkeeper claims them or the team break from them and score. Very little success with them currently

TFF?

The corner setup definitely works with the right players. For example I play Kurt Zouma with Chelsea even though he is missing some key attributes because he is in the double digits for goals, all from corners.

TFF - Just another big shout out to ya mate !!!!

Using Fighter in the welsh leagues. 3rd season in and just made it out of the group stages of Euro Cup 2. Tactics are spot on and make the game fun to play.

Am winning everything and knocking TNS off their perch.

One quick question - sorry not tactic related......

I cant scout outside wales and the option to ask board to extend scouting range is not available - will this come as my club grows ?

Also work permits - im scouting some quality talented youngsters but getting trouble getting work permits. Is it a case of if they need a work permit then don't even bother scouting them ?

Yes, it'll become available as the club grows

It's hard to predict whether some player will get a work permit or not until you try

I don't like the way the scouting system and attributes masking work in the game so I prefer using 3rd party software(FMRTE) to search players

Hello mates,

After first season in Vanarama NL North :)  Started with Cerber v4, than turned into Cerber v3 for a small period and finally changed into Cerber V4....

Always started with Cerber v4, when need goals changed to Overload during match, or when want to park the bus than used Shield Wall.

 

 

All thanks and credits goes to TFF :)

Hello @Totalfootballfan , thank you for your work TFF. 

 

I use the Cerber 4 tactic, if I understood correctly whoever plays left midfielders must have a strong right foot and who who play on the right must have o strong left foot ? Thank you for your answer

Hi.

I've updated the OP and added information about preferred foot recommendations for the positions if some position isn't mentioned then the preferred foot isn't important for this position

For me Annihilator is the best and most stable tactic i've tried so far. I also tried cerber v4 which is also a great tactic but in comparison i had scoring problems more often with cerber than with anihilator, despite dominant performances.

I've just finished my second season with Liverpool. I know it's not so difficult to win games with Liverpool but the stability of Annihilator is so impressive.

In the first season i won the Premier League, the Champions League, the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup.

In the second season i won all possible trophies.

I finished both Premier league seasons with 105 points.

So thanks for your great work TFF!

Hello @Totalfootballfan,

so going with Cerber v4 who would be better DM players like Bentancur or more type of Florentino Luis?

And which players are best for WBL and WBR, would TAA or Kimmich be good WBR or you recommend some faster player maybe like Odriziola?

Hi,

If we take the 1st season then Bentancur is much better for the DM position than Florentino Luís so there's no doubts whom to choose

Kimmich is too slow

TAA is OK... Also, he is very young so it's possible to increase his Acceleration and Pace at least by 1point

It is the end of first season. I could buy TAA for around 100Mio.
So you think he will be best potential WBR after 2-3 seasons? (except newgens)

Spoiler

Bentacur( CA/PA: 157/173  ) vs Luis( 152 / 172)

Or you recommend other player for DM? Maybe Top 10 List (best and potential best)

if we take the 1st season then TTA is 20 years old (159CA/178PA) and he'll be the best WBR in the game until his CA starts to decline and that might happen when he's about 30+ years old so at leas 10 seasons he'll be the best WBR in the game and as I said I would try to increase his Acceleration and Pace at leas 1 point and it should not be hard to do because he's very young.

Bentancur is better and he'll be one the best players for the DM position until his CA starts to decline

Jayden Bogle? Not elite but fits the role (even better than Aarons) but PA only 140?

Jayden Bogle's PA is random (in range 130-160) so in some save his PA might be as low as 130PA and in some save his PA might be as high as 160PA

He start with 120CA and that's Sky Bet Championship level and for teams that level he is a very good WBR
