Tactics Ashez and Foxy Gegenpressing in FMM2020

Recommended Posts

Original post listed here:

 

 

I take no credit for this tactic. All credit goes to @Ashez & @FuddledFox give the article a read, you won't be disappointed, despite being originally created two years ago, all of what is said still applies today. So in depth and a must read for anyone who wants a better understanding of how the game works and if you just want to play the rock and roll football we've all become accustom too with everyones favourite German, Jurgen Klopp. 

 

I wanted to give the tactic a go with FMM20 drawing to a close, I thought I'd put this tactic in the limelight so that you may want to try it yourself now or come FMM21. 

 

I used Liverpool to test the tactic as they are the inspiration for it being created in the first place. To no one's surprise it is very labour intensive and you will find your players tire much quicker and more often than most if not all tactics out there. To counter act this I had two squads and then a handful of versatile backups who could fill in wherever and whenever required.

Some top drawer additions mixed nicely with mid tier players who fitted many roles in the team.

This was my main team, plenty of quality all over.

And my second team, still possesses some great players as well some mid tier players that can do a job.

Me and Andreas keeping up the fitness levels, Klopps real life right hand man, Peter Krawietz stuck around and Inglethorpe would aid the youngsters with Pep Lijnders keeping the spirit high. 

 

How we performed:

All but the Caramel Cup was conquered, where we did have the better of the game v City but we couldn't score.

Strong defense, roughly conceding 1 every 4 games, scoring over 2. Our two losses was that 1-0 defeat to City and also a 1-0 defeat to Arsenal in the PL.

As you can see from the apps of most to least, the rotation was aggressive, everyone getting plenty of minutes, the Ox made just 17 because of an injury stricken season.

Salah topping the scoring charts, followed by Bobby and the Star of our second team Ryan Christie.

Bobby topping the assists, then Alaba at left BBM and Shaqiri who played IF in the second team. 

 

Now time for averages 😊 I went back into every match and counted up all the shots, shots on target, clear cut chances and possession, so here we go. 


 
  • We averaged 13.4 Shots a games VS opponents 2.5
  • We averaged 6.6 Shots on target a game VS opponents 1
  • We averaged 2.2 Clear cut chances a games VS opponents 0.3
  • We averaged 48.8% possession VS opponents 51.2%

So as you can see we dominated pretty much every game, conceding just 1 shot on target a game is testament to how this tactic plays, the opponent will largely be starved of chances. 

 

So that wraps up this test and a massive congrats to @Ashez and @FuddledFox the tactic you've created two years ago is still a master piece and I can't wait to try it on the new game come the 24th.

 

Thanks for reading and again please go give the OP a read, I didn't show the instructions for the tactic, so if you want them you'll need to check the OP out.

I’ve never actually read it, so will defo be having a read over it soon as the results explain themselves, 6 conceded is brilliant but 98 scored as well shows it works well both ways!

Yeah mate, it was so fun to use, I want to try it with a lesser team to see how it translates to lesser players but something tells me it will still perform well, Christie was phenomenal and he's barely any greens

That would be interesting because back in FMM18 and also FMM19 is was very effective with lesser teams so long as they had a few players who fit the positions even if they weren’t worldies.

I'm so happy to see this is still doing the business. This was by far the most fun I've had with FMM in years.

I used it (with a few minor tweaks) in pretty much all my FMM19 saves, which were generally all lower league.

It did really well, with really strong defense and super overpowered attack.

This tactic has intrigued me, so thought I’d give it a go, and so far not too bad, though it did take a while for the players to get going

Anyone compared this version to the "official" version on fmm21?

It'd be interesting to see what the difference is.

@FuddledFoxand myself have briefly discussed the possibility of looking into it, hard to say if it's worth it without the game in hand

I'd be up for helping but I generally don't have the attention/knowledge to give an accurate "report"

Appreciated, if we look into it we likely could do with some testing help so we'll keep you in mind :)
