Good Evening All
To start off with, why this tactic? Quite simply, the football Barcelona and Spain played with this philosophy were the most beautiful i have ever seen & are the reason i want to play football manager
please see last years post below:
This Tactic is still succeeding and winning.
Good Evening All,
I am and always have been a Manchester United fan. I used to write to club when I was younger, I buy there kits & play as them on all football games. One of the best moments as a fan was the 1998/1999 season, When we won the Treble of the Premier League, FA cup & the Champions league.
Wikipedia sums up this year best explaining that The 1998–99 season was the most successful season in the history of Manchester United Football Club.During the campaign United lost only five times, including a one-off Charity Shield fixture, in the League Cup against eventual winners Tottenham Hotspur and their only home defeat, a league match against Middlesbrough in December 1998. A run of 33 games unbeaten in all competitions began on 26 December at home to Nottingham Forest.
I have spent all this week researching & creating the tactic which helped create the most successful season in our history. The basis of the tactic was the 4-4-2 formation. It consisted of a solid back four, creative but hardworking midfielders topped off with a deadly forward line of Cole & Yorke.
Let me discuss it further below:
So, The way i assessed the Man Utd 99 team was:
GK - PETER SCHMEICHEL FB - GARY NEVILLE FB - DENNIS IRWIN CB- JAAP STAM CB- RONNY JOHNSEN WM- DAVID BECKHAM BBM- ROY KEANE BBM- PAUL SCHOLES W-RYAN GIGGS CF-DWIGHT YORKE CF-ANDY COLE
After watching multiple matches with the 99' squad, I came to following conclusion:
Attacking-Man Utd were a talented & hard working team. They would run non-stop & constantly pass directly to keep in the final third. Wide- So many of the passes and attacks stem from the wings. Beckham and neville with their crosses and giggs with his running at defences. Tempo/Creativity balanced- with both of these, there was a clear pattern in the way we played. In possession we played the ball very fast & direct with creativity sky high whereas in defence, the defence & midfield worked as a unit to slow the opposition right down & hunt with discipline to win the ball back.
In regards to defence I found the following:
Defensive line/Closing down/Tackling/Offside Trap- Man Utd 99' played with a solid back four who held a high defensive line. We defended all of the pitch starting with Yorke/Cole, going through beckham/Giggs & then Keane & the back four, our defence was relentless. Committed tackling in-deed, reason for keane & scholes sometimes being off - if there was even a sniff of getting the ball, they would stick a challenge in. This all made complete sense as the higher you win the ball, the more likely you can score a goal. Time Wasting- NONE, Almost to the point of being stupid. The opposite of time wasting. Every player ran like it was there last match both in and out of possession.
With the final part of the tactic I found:
Final Third-In the final third, we did most of the things suggested in the game including early crosses,overlaps,long shots,run at defence etc. Passing Style-Our play was very direct which at times looked messy with the ball being hoofed all the time up front but when it worked, it was so dangerous & managed to create lots of chances. Passing focus-passing focus was generally mixed although tough one. Beckham & giggs got the majority of balls as they were the two most creative players for us. This being said, Cole & Yorke got lots of direct passes normally with one of them acting as Target man for the other. Goalkeeper distribution-In the matches I watched it was always the same with the goalkeeper kicks , always long. I watched at least 5+ examples of this and no short balls out. Blending with the direct mentality, schmeichel would normally boot it to beckham, giggs or further to Yorke or Cole.
This is a Tactic that I've been working on, and this works pretty fine, This is based on Pep Guardiola's style of play.
I am Winning the league, just one defeat that was against BORUSSIA DORTMUND as I was playing with my B Team. Also, on the verge of winning DFB Pokal and UEFA EL.
Actually I worked on this tactic on FM19 PC version, where I played FANTASY DRAFT with my friends, and tried to bring the closest possible version for mobile.
For this Tactic to work the best, you need, Creative players.
Striker : Either Poacher/ Complete Forward
Wing players : Inside Forwards
Midfielders : 2 Advance playmakers (Compulsory) and One Defensive Midfielder/ Deep Lying DM
DL/DR :Full Backs, work the best, but if you want to be more attacking you can go for WB.
and central defenders need to be, BALL PLAYING DEFENDERS.
Goalie: can be SWEEPER KEEPER/ GOALKEEPER.
Hope you like the tactic, try and let me know in the comments section below.
Good Evening All,
I recieved a challenge on my previous post to create the Leicester City Title Winning tactic. Leicester City pulled off "one of the greatest sporting stories of all time" by winning the title, a 5000-1 bet before the 2015 season. This counter attacking tactic meant that Leicester were the best team in the league defensively but also a powerful force in attack.
The images below show the set up of the 2015 Leicester City squad. The squad set-up was the following:
GK=SCHMEICHEL FB=FUCHS FB=SIMPSON NCB=HUTH NCB=MORGAN DW=ALBRIGHTON BWN=KANTE AP=DRINKWATER IF=MAHREZ AP=OKAZAKI P=VARDY
Below I have listed my results so far with it:
Good Evening All,
I have created my own version of the Manchester United 2008 tactic. The squad was world class and the season was successful, winning the double of the Premier League title and the Champions League. The tactic was at the forefront of our success and confused the opposition, creating many goals and chances aswell as being strong in defence.
The images below show the set up of the 2008 Manchester United squad. The squad set-up was the following:
GK-Van Der Sar FB-Evra FB-Brown CB-Vidic CB-Ferdinand BBM-Scholes DLP-Carrick W-Giggs IF-Ronaldo CF-Tevez CF-Rooney
Disclaimer: This tactic is currently untested over the course of a season.

I would recommend starting with Italian Serie A,B,C, England Prem, Spain La Liga, plus the top division from whatever team you want to play, e.g. if you want to play as Ajax, load Holland,
I have already talked about this tactic in my previous post. Long story short it is a defensive tactic that relies on the defence to stop attacks and then start them. This will not work for every team but I would like you guys to test it in different leagues with different teams! Enhanced Match Engine

Visit the OG site.
This is our Footbe Logos Megapack for Football Manager 2019 Mobile. A huge thanks to FM Scout for providing the source pack, without which this would not be possible.
The pack contains over 700 club logos, 90 competition logos and 76 nation logos.
If you find a missing, bugged, or incorrect logo, please let us know in the comments below, and we'll make sure to have it sorted for the next update.
How to Download?
This pack is around 22MB compressed, and as with all of our graphics files, are available for all of our members using Torrents.
Torrents are fantastic for downloading large files - the file is split into smaller sections and downloaded to your device individually in these chunks and then pieced back together, all without you having to worry about anything. This means that everything is distributed across multiple servers and users, so in the right conditions your download speeds could even be quicker! We have a system in place to ensure that all our files will be available through the Torrents at all times, so you don't have to worry about the file not being available.
If you're not familiar with Torrents, you'll need a special application to download them. We can recommend qBitTorrent or Deluge on Windows; Transmission on Mac OS or Linux; or Flud on Android. iOS devices cannot directly download Torrent files, so you'll need to use your computer for this.
Download for Premium Members
Our Premium Members can download our files from our high-speed download servers without having to worry about Torrents at all. Simply click the big green Download button above and follow the instructions below to install the kits on your device.
iOS Devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod)
You need to download these files on your computer with iTunes installed on it. Extract the files using your file manager, or a program like 7Zip.
IMPORTANT: You MUST have a clean installation of FM 2019 Mobile on your iOS device to install this pack successfully. You should not have ever opened the game on your device. If this is the case, copy your save files to the Cloud or your computer first, and then uninstall and reinstall the game before continuing with these instructions. Once your pack is extracted, rename it to Logos. Create a new folder called Pictures and move the Logos folder into it.
Open iTunes, and go to File Sharing on the section for your iOS device (you can connect through USB or WiFi, but keep in mind that USB will be quicker). Click on FM 2019 Mobile on the panel in the middle of the screen to open the file browser. If the file browser that appears is not empty, then you do not have a clean installation of the game and need to read the red box above.
Click and drag the Pictures folder you created earlier into this file browser and wait a while until iTunes has completed the copying - this will probably take a long time!
Go back onto your iOS device, and open the game. It will take a minute for the graphics cache to build.
If you're unsure, please follow our video tutorial which will be available soon.
If you downloaded on your computer, extract the files using your file manager, or a program like 7Zip. To copy the files to your device, use an application like AirDroid or connect your device via USB, and copy the folder structure into the Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2019 Mobile/normal/graphics/logos directory. You might need to create this directory. Once finished, you should see a folder with 3 folders inside, each containing lots of logos and a config.xml file. Transferring these files will take a long time!
At this stage, you should open the game, and go into Settings, then to the User Interface section. You should scroll to the bottom of the settings list, and press the Reload Skin button.
If your logos are still not appearing correctly in the game, you should go to the Android/data/football.manager.games.fm19.mobile/files/installed/application_support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2019 Mobile/normal/Caches folder on your device and delete any files in there. You should then restart your device.
NOTE: If you downloaded on your Android device directly, then when you extract it on-device, make sure you select the correct folder mentioned above as the extraction location. If you're unsure, please follow our video tutorial which will be available soon.
