Tactics 4-4-1-1 1KC Tactic.


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO POST A CHALLENGE

Right, now that is out the way. I would like to share my success 4-4-1-1 tactic I have used throughout my Jorge 1KC challenge; I am posting this because I know some players would love to do a 1KC challenge, but can't create a tactic. So hopefully this gives them a chance to play one, but without posting it as a challenge here. 

 

More screenshots of the results can be found in that thread. 

I must say, I took a lot of knowledge and tips from various users in the old thread, on how to create a lone-striker tactic, which can be found here; 

Also, through various DM messages, @Rich has given some guidance and advice on the tactical side of FMM which helped me in putting it all together. 

Right, moving onto the actual tactic;

Players required; 

GK = Standard attributes really, nothing special. 

WB = I went for crossing/dribbling, along with the usual defensive ones such as tackling & positioning. 

CB = Usual attributes. (Tackling, aerial, postioning) Pace & Passing are always good if you can get them. 

CM = Tackling, passing, decisions & teamwork were my main ones. You want them to be able to win the ball back, and have the ability to find a pass quickly, either out wide or into the AP. Try and have a Left footed player on the left, and Right footed for the right. 

W = 2nd most important position here. High crossing/dribbling is a must. Ideally, pace & decisions will be as equal. In the spoiler below are my two choice wingers. Please bare in mind I am in the year 2032, so have had time to buy/develop world class players. Same as CM for left/right footed for each side. It will make alot of difference having a left footed player on the left etc. 

Spoiler

AP = Almost as important as W, but not quite. Teamwork/creativity/decisions/passing for me. I tried to avoid any AP with shooting over 15 as don't want them stealing too many goals. 

TM = The key to this tactic. Usual TM attributes are a must. High aerial, shooting, movement. Low teamwork would also be a bonus so they are a someone selfish player. 

Instructions; 

637550553_Screenshot_20210512-143716_FM21Mobile.thumb.jpg.4c9a3deb30fa8dede7e8601a4d59b85e.jpg

Balanced defensive line as not to push too many players forward & limit the goal scoring for everyone apart from the TM. However, you will want to win the ball back ASAP, for the wingers to get a nice cross in to hopefully land on your TM's head. 

Attack wise, the most common partnership of Work into Box & Run at Defence. 

WIB = You will want to try and limit any long shots, especially from your AP. This should enable your AP to think about the pass, and hopefully play it through to your striker. 

RAD = Mainly so your wingers will run at the oppositions back line, meaning your TM has time to pick his position in the box, perfect for when that cross comes in. 

The other instructions are fairly self-explanatory. 

Results;

So, as you can see in my Celtic thread, I have had success year in, year out using this tactic, but for those of you who haven't seen it, I have a few screenshots to give you a glimpse of what I achieved;

All of the above was won in 12 seasons, constant success domestically, and 10 Champions League wins in a row.  

Players results;

Over 1000 goals at club levels, the highest scoring season was 100 goals. As you can see, between 90-95 was the most common result. 

610578447_Screenshot_20210512-140508_FM21Mobile.thumb.jpg.e7e2478f7613c3c4aab02d725817f2dd.jpg

These are my two first choice Wingers, and both have been with me for a number of years and provide between 20-30 assists a year. Not as high as others have produced, but a solid return none-the-less.

Overall, this tactic has averaged 2.76 goals per game, while conceding just 0.53 a game. All while not spending that much money. 

I haven't managed to test this at any other club yet, but providing you get the right players for the right spots, I can't see it being a problem. 

Any questions please ask away. 


Thanks for reading!

Well done on posting it mate, I’m sure it will help a lot of people. And your results speak for themselves👏🏻
 

Thank you for the mention as well😁

Quality stuff that fella!

I love the shape in general because it reminds me of watching one of my favourite players Bergkamp in that Arsenal side that used a similar system. I'm not an Arsenal fan but I always loved the mercurial Bergkamp.

Thanks or sharing this mate - fantastic write up and well explained every step of the way.

I'm going to give this a go!

Did you do anything special for attacking set pieces to contribute to the goals for your striker?

Equally, set pieces on defending too as it looks like you didn't concede a great deal either.

Thanks again!

Good luck Mike. Thanks for your comments. 

Obviously had my TM on penalties and short free kicks. 

Attacking corners went like;

The same for both sides, just different takers. 

Defensive wise, just left my ML/MR & TM up to attack on everything, and had my AP with them on the free kicks furthest away from goal. 

In a more challenging league I would imagine it would concede more than I did, but the Scottish Premier League is pretty much a two horse race from the start, and after 3 or so seasons Rangers didn't come close to challenging me for it.

Would you mind posting your defence set piece setup?

You could put all the images of how you stop the team in each of the corners

I'll post them tomorrow. 

But to honest, I can't say I ever moved anyone apart from the wingers & striker to keep them forward. Everything else was left as it was.

I'm so glad it's working for you mate. Are you finding most of your goals coming from your striker like mine, or is it a even spread?

Brown is my first choice TM but got injured so put Buckley-Ricketts in, both getting the majority of my goals, some other goals are quite evenly spread 👍

Great write up, always good to see how others have managed to get the ever elusive 1k challenge completed.

 

I might have to have another re-jig of my go-to lone striker tactic.

Did you find that your CD on the near post scored a lot from corners? That seems to be the only place I can get consistent goals from corners.

I aim far post and put my best header/str on far post, best aggression/movement on Mark keeper. And use outswingers whenever possible. Inswingers are crap this year for me.

Erm, my CD scored a few, no more than 5 a season if I remember right. 9/10 it would land to Jorge, and he would score about 50% of the time I reckon.

The tactics I usually use spread the goals between the whole team.  Decided to give this a try in order to see if the striker can reach 30 league goals in a season.  Not sure how it will continue but Vardy in a Poacher role has started sensationally with 15 goals from the first six league games.

Excellent tactic.

Thats a good return for Vardy, considering his aerial isn't what I'd go for personally. Glad its working for you mate.

FINALLY I can focus on one guy without my AP outscoring Him, Apart from the fact my sub Striker is scoring more i may have to put my pride to the side and use him instead, 

Do you have any recomemndation for games where its Still 0- 0 With 20 mins left, Ive moved my wing backs up a slot that sometimes works,

To be honest, I never really changed anything tactically during the games, just subs. 

You are always going to have the odd games where you just can't score. I mean, i had this game once;

21 shots, 7 of which on target but only 1 goal.

Thank you a lot for posting this, I’ve trialled it with a few tweaks and my striker is scoring a lot more with this tactic than they ever have. It’s not difficult to build winning teams on this game but given that I don’t have a lot of time to test lots of tactics, I appreciate someone posting a tactic like this.

I’m not really one for challenges, but I feel like I might be able to achieve a 1K for the first time ever now.

Glad it's helping you mate. What tweaks did you make if I can ask? Always open to improvements :)

Nothing major! Just sometimes push the wingers and full backs a little higher if the other team is playing a defensive/narrow formation. My centre midfielders haven’t been performing too well so I’ve fiddled with their roles, but noticed once I did this that they were taking goals away from my striker

How have you trained your players to be so well rounded or was they brought like that?

Most of them brought as 18/19 year olds, if not younger. Kept 2/3 over 28's for mentoring, and trained them mostly. 

If you check out my 1KC thread, there is some transfer screenshots in there I think, which will show roughly how much I paid for players.
