thanks TFF,

after long time didn't play this game (2016) and "must" come back during boring looong WFH due to covid..the first tactic that I've search is TFF (huge fans since 2015)..and voila Invincible (EPL) with Man U on first season and treble winner!!

winning premier league (thriller results against Liverpool till last match, beat Man City on FA final and hammer Shakhtar on Europa League final.. 

only buy Caglar Soyuncu as DCL, and ask my football director to bought Haaland on winter transfer due of injuries Martial & Rashford..

Using cerber as default formation, cerber overload when i truly need goal and use wall tactic when i need hold the leading score...also follow all instructions that available on first page (training, shout etc.)..

awesome dude, continue your amazing works

Have you tried team meeting to boost morale?

Yes - had little impact immediately but then things improved 3 or 4 games after.

Last 15 games in the league were 4 wins, 6 draws and 5 defeats with Newcastle in the first season. Finished 9th, just missing out on European football with 2 defeats in last two games (tbf against Liverpool & Man City).

I'll use the offseason to really ensure I have the right type of players for the roles and see how it goes.

Balanced all season, including pre-season, @Nebuuu?

 

Only after Pre-Season. That`s how it works for me.
Also edit the weekly training with 1-2 extras, if needed.

Hello,

in position generally it´s yours top scorer?

 I can´t take the most of my strikers.

Mainstriker (Piatek) 34 matches - 28 goals, 3 assists
Left midfieldwinger (Dilrosun) 20 (4) matches - 11 goals, 4 assists
Right (sometimes left) midfieldwinger (Lukebakio) 26 (3) matches - 10 goals, 10 assists
Right midfieldwinger/sometimes striker (Cunha) 9 (14) matches - 7 goals, 2 assists

Others:
Central midfield players (Maier, Ciano, Bardhi etc.) - 15 goals, 27 assists
Central and Wing-Defenders: 16 goals, 26 assists

1st Season updated Cerber5 almost over. Fantastic season. Now Cup-Final vs RB Leipzig.
No cheating (Loading, Editor etc.), only this updated tactic and the helping stuff (Morale, Training etc.).
Thx TFF ♥ Now CL Final, Allez PSG! :)

hi TFF, by any chance have you updated the Cerber tactic to version V5?
I ask you because in the set piece video I see the Cerber V5 tactic selected.
in case where can I find it?

On page 77 the below has been added, TFF has indicated he isn't going to add a download we would have to do it ourselves :

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just for you guys 

 

The Cerber V4 with removing "Short Passing" PI from the WBL/WBR positions and the new attacking free-kick setup

 

Tell me if i have forgot something or do something wrong and sorry for my english... :P

First off-season with Newcastle, I spent ensuring I had wingers that were left footed on the left, right on the right etc to see if I could have any improvement with this tactic. Just doesn't seem to work for me. Only thing I can think from seeing these screenshots is that the role suitability is a bit lower than I thought.

Any advice?

Hey TFF! Just found out this thread with your tactics, it’s working great with my Ajax save. Currently in season two and switched from a Knap tactic to your Cerber, Cerber attack and Shield Wall.  
Won against Barcelona at home 2-1 and killed the game the last 20 minutes using Shield Wall👌🏻

Any chance to see a 4-4-2? 

The tactic that seems near a 442 is the bloodlust: is the tactic good as the cerber is? 

Otherwise,  any one that can suggest to me a good 442?

 

Thanks

Whoa, puh!...I just finished my 2nd season with Hertha BSC and CerberV5. This tactic is a blast and gets better with every season.
After 1st season 1st place@league and cupfinal won, this year was "ez" in the Bundesliga with 9 points difference to Bayern Munich (2nd).
+ my last topscorer K. Piatek scored 27x goals@Bundesliga. 83 goals in 34 matches is awesome.
The first half of the season was like a dream.
The second i kinda struggled because of injuries and idk, it was difficult to score + Champions Leagie, German Cup, National Teams was hard to manage my players.
Overall still an superb league result !

e1e458572345257ff245b67dac09a4be.jpg

This 2nd season i reached the Cup Final, too.
But lost vs Bayern Munich@penalites. Atleast i got the equalizer Min87. :)

52621737387baacd89d0130503865cea.png

And then the Champions League Final vs Man City...daaaaaaaaamn what a thrill! :D
Both teams are equal, got chances to score. Start of the 2nd half my  central midfielder and huge talent Arne Maier with a brutal foul..red card. shiiiiieeeeeeeeet*
BUT.....62. Minute, penalty for my team and i have an awesome penaltyscorer wit Piatek, who scored 7 out of 9 penalites@Bundesliga.
MISS! :seagull:

79. Minute....my must-have-central-defender Torunarigha is injured. RIP :(
I hope, since 40min 1 player less, to reach the overtime somehow.
BÄM! 94. Minute GOAL from my left midfielder Dilrosun, 1:0, SHIIIIIIIIIIIIELD WAAAAAAAAAAHAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAALLLLLL!!!111 :hammer:
30sec later...WINRAR of tha Champignons League. :cool:

46600b00e85d22edc6372539e700b057.png

Man...what a wild 2nd season.
That`s why i love the Football Manager so much. + with THIS tactics from TFF it`s even more fun.
Thanks alot, stay safe and i`m looking forward to the 3rd season. :D

Hey all,

Two questions for v5:

1) Getting through quite a lot on the wings (as u would expect) with both wing back and winger on either side. Trouble is they all really enjoy rather finishing themselves, instead of passing the ball to the unmarked ST (or even MC) in front of goal. Now, I've tried teaching the unselfish traits such as "pass rather than shot" but to no avail. They keep on hitting lame shots wide or straight at the goalie. Have any of you found a way around this? Is it simply down to the quality/unselfishnes of the W/WB?
2) What pitch size do you use for v5?

What does everyone do for Team Training. Are there any good schedules out there that fit TFFs tactics?

Hey @middleweight165,

I'm following @Nebuuu's advice with quite some success:
Balanced all season long (except for pre season). Adding the odd "Attacking patient" and "Match Review" when match congestion is not to heavy.

Challenging for promotion with Bolton (first season) with this approach on v5.

  1.  On my recent saves with Hertha (Start of the 2nd season. I started a new one because of Data-Updates), my left WB Plattenhardt is top@assists
    12 matches, 11 assists, 1 goal. His Stats are Crosses-16, Passing-12, Decisions-14, Teamwork-15, Concentration-13. Idk if that helps.

    b3d250d16c3ac85239046921879f29ed.png
     
  2. Maximum pitchsize.
    I believe it helps a little to make the tactic more effecient. Especially when your Left Midfielder are one of the most important position here and we have to come from the sides (LM, WBs).

Will try this - though I sincerely doubt Bolton will be able to attract any player with those kind of stats :-D At least as early as in Season 2.

Anyway, cheers @Nebuuu

Hi TFF, I knew that the primary tactic is for any team to be overachieving with a good balance in attack and defense, my case is I've dominating fm20 with this tactic till the point that I am wondering, if I have built a god tier team which is better than any team in my save, is there any tweak you would recommend to make?

Hi mate,

I don't find there are any tweaks that you can apply in that case and get any noticeable difference... at least I haven't found any. ;)

Wow. TTF you’ve done it again. 
 

I personally just wanted to say thank you. At 34 years old like most of you I’ve been playing football manager/CM since it’s incarnation all those years ago. However with work an family life now taking the priority my footy manager time is limited. The more plug an play tactics is all I have time for as opposed to constant micro management. Your tactics consistently do the trick and make my life easier. Such variety as well. I know from your POV you’ll name your best one but for me I love switching between a few depending who I’m playing. Also at lower league level where I start my journeys I have less flexibility over players who can play the specialist roles your tactics demand. So the variety in older tested formations you supply are brilliant too. 
 

One question though, as I’m late to the Fm20 party (was still playing fm19) is it a bug this year that corners are easy to score from or is it a characteristic of TTF tactics (that I could change for realism). Only ask as in pre season my Left aided centre back has scored 3 goals from 4 friendlies (3 of the friendlies against far higher opposition). 
 

as always keep up the good work!

Hey mate,

I'm glad to hear the tactics works good for you.

I don't find there's any exploit in this year FM version when it comes to the corners set pieces and the anomaly that you encountered is just luck but as I said on a long road the numbers should look more or less realistic.

Hi,

The the set pieces UI sometimes gets bugged and it requires resting at the default sate and then try setting it again, it could be that you encounter the UI bug.

You mean just continue the game a couple of days and try again? Its nothing too major, just the DM cant move to the other side and couple of positions in the box, only letting me have a straight line

the players positions are irrelevant the only what matters is thier "Instructions"

if you need to reset the routine then choose Reset To Default

Thanks for the reply mate. 

I have been doing some experiments, changing the standard defensive line to higher and low crosses to mixed crosses on my god tier team enhance the goal scorings significantly especially on away games. Just sharing. :)

Brilliant. Appreciate the reply. Your fm19 tactics were soo good I couldn’t fail with any team. 
 

Now I’ve started fm20 it’s following suit. I always tend to find it tricky to get players perfect for Wing back or ML and MR particularly. All going well though so far in my Aldershot save!

I've even tried to intentionally sabotage the set pieces instructions and yet my centre backs are still scoring every game lol!! I've tried changing everything I can think to and somehow they still score. Getting silly when my centre backs are 1st and 2nd goal scorers. Great stuff as always

Just out of interest. Does anyone else using TFF amazing tactics find their centre backs scoring a lot of goals (like more than the strikers lol).

Or is it just because i'm playing in the conference and defences are generally rubbish in that league?

Hi @middleweight165,

Truly sorry for the late reply (you know: Real life...)

But,no, that's really all there is to it. Balanced all season, and try to stick in a few Attacking Patient (about mid week), and Match Review (below the recovery slot, after matchdays).

Hi @patorucito7

I never change formation other than to the Shield wall when defending a lead. Actually, I find that V5 work very well playing as underdog. For me it even works better in away matches than at home.
