Tactics Hammerhead 2-2-2-1-3


Recommended Posts

This tactic is inspired by the so-called Hammerhead tactics that worked very well on the FM18 pc version of the game. I became champion in the first season with Crystal Palace with only 1 point difference after a very exciting battle with Man City. I am also very curious how the tactics will do with larger teams. Below the screenshots is a short explanation about the roles of the players and what is important.

I often switch between counter, control, attack and overload based on what the match requires.









SK: I bought Mvogo because he is a good keeper for a reasonably low price. The normal stats for a good keeper are important. Because I have chosen a sweeper keeper, it is also important that he is good at playing football. In retrospect I would rather have chosen a keeper who had a bit more pace.

BPDs: When these 2 gain control, I want them to be able to defend through the center to the 2 DLP’s. Passing is therefore very important. Also for the distribution to the WBs.

WBR + WBL: I bought Dumfries for the WBR role. Crossing, pace and stamina are of course important here. These 2 players will often provide the assist on the AFs.

DLPs: 2 DLPSs in the center of midfield. Very unusual, but very effective. Both must be well-grounded technically and must also stand their ground defensively. Both of them are often fairly invisible, but form an essential link in this tactic for the connection between defense and attack. Maybe it's also an option to try it with normal CMs. But I initially held on to the DLPs because of the original philosophy behind the Hammerhead tactics and because it just worked out well, I didn't want to make any changes.

AP: Just a good playmaker. Technically well-grounded and must be able to serve the 3 in the front well.

AFs: Wingers do well in this role. You can easily train them to AFs. Marega was available for a low price and the perfect option. They will often go for their own success but must also be able to combine well with the other players in the front. Zaha was incredibly good at the start of the season, but moderate for the rest of the season. He wanted to leave, but I refused. So his morality declined.

P: I chose a poacher in the middle so that it responds directly to balls from the AP and is a finisher between the 2 AFs.

How did you decide what mentality to use for each match?

Depends on how good the opponent is. Against big team i usually start with counter. When you need to score switch to attack or overload if there is little time left. Against small or average teams i always start with attacking mentality.

Hey @Van The Man - have you tried this on the Winter update?

No, I am currently playing with my most recent tactic AllOnTarget. I wonder if this one till works! Anyone currently using it?

The strange thing about this years version of FMM is that no one else's tactic works for me except my own.. Does anyone else have this too?
