Tactics Winter update tactic 4312


Recommended Posts

Started a new save with villa since the winter update with a tactic I'd been using with great success to find I lost around 8 of my first 11-12 games. Also found the corner tactic of marking keeper and aiming at penalty spot no longer works. Decided to quit and start a fresh trying to find something that works consistently on the new update. Not found much success on the corner front, but still won the league with only 1 big signing (bissouma). I always liked asymmetrical tactics, so built one to suit villa, as bailey suited it well and traore is decent backup. It also allowed me to play Watkins and Ings together.

Got quite a few goals, and generally had more shots/shots on target than the other team. When playing big teams away, I often had less shots, but still won or drew.

Only played 1 season so far, so early days....

How has Buendia performed in the system? I can’t seem to find a system to get the best of him. Also does Coutinho bring in numbers if CM?

Seems Buendia likes this system. Only 1 & half games (was a sub against Arsenal) and I’m finally getting something out of him.

I didn't really use Buendia as prefer a left footer for the inside forward role, and he wouldn't retrain as a cm. Coutinho was ok, but got injured a fair amount, so Ramsey was the main AP with Mcginn and Bissouma in the BBM roles.

Seems to work for Buendia now 😂 I’m just tinkering with it now as clean sheets are hard to come by and a couple of times I’ve ended up with a draw after being 2-0 or 3-0 up and cruising.

If I go 3 goals clear or sometimes 2 against bigger clubs, I switch the tempo to slow and put time wasting on. I do get quite a few 3-2 wins, but sometimes it turns it into a 5-1 or similar.

Just finished season 2, won the league, champions League and carabao cup. Got knocked out of the FA cup by Chelsea 😞

Following with interest, I really like an unorthodox setup.

Who did you manage to sign for your 2nd season?

So far for me in a fresh save after the transfer update, the corner tactic has still been working really well for me.

Wow, well done! Can you show screenshots of your 2nd season?

Stuck with Villa. I am a villa fan, which is why I often pick them, but also find their team is very strong on FM and can usually push into CL spots. Made quite a few transfers now. Currently in season 3, and actually looking stronger. Tactic requires less changes during each game and I'm normally comfortable 2-0 or more after 60 mins.

PS - if I get a man sent off, I take off the AP, depending on how the game is going, I switch to overload to try and keep the ball in the opposition half.

Trying to reduce any changes, so in season 1/2 reduced tempo from fast to slow and put time wasting on if winning by 2/3 goals. Currently in season 3 and using more as a plug and play tactic where I just leave game to run their course and only intervene occasionally to up tempo to overload if it's 0-0. So far I. Season 3, I'm roughly 17 games in 16 wins and 1 loss to Man It's with a half strength team due to injury/fatigue.

Slightly further into season 3. Won 4, lost 2 in my CL group. 2 losses were Barca away and Atalanta at home 😞 largely the same team from season 2 though, just bulking out the squad.

I’ve found switching to overload if I go 2-0 down seems to work. Went 2-0 to Man City & Chelsea, switched and end up winning 3-2. It’s definitely a fun tactic, I’m just tweaking to tighten up the defence as I’m conceding 1 or 2 every game. Might switch a BBM to BWM 🤔
 

Buendia is still tearing up as the IF so I use Traore as a back up striker instead which he seems to enjoy. Still in my first season so still hunting for a solid DLF. Vassilev seems to do OK but is hugely inconsistent.

I used Watkins as the DLF in season 1. He was ok, around 17 goals I think. Bailey was the main man, 26 goals from 28 games. Managed to get Chiesa on a bosman for season 2 and he was decent. I think 30 from 39 games.

Watkins is my main DLF but I like to rotate in the cups hence trying Vassilev there

Finally had time to finish my first season. Fairly successful. I found switching one of BBM to a BWM shored up the defence at the cost of relentlessly pummelling teams (made the switch after the 6-4 vs Wolves)

Buendia slowed down too but I think that’s due to switching to a BWM but he still pulled in PoTY, Players PoTY & team of the year. 7E2BAA55-4DF2-4AE0-8EC7-73AB51ED12EE.thumb.png.53d15b4969f59b9fb2eb3f17d72da40a.pngE37E50A5-0300-4C5D-9E86-5CE3AE8B733A.thumb.png.7151fea91ee24980a0e61d2d877310c6.png

Definitely a fun tactic. Admittedly a bit torn as I loved hammering 4-5 past everyone but I love a tight defence too.

End of season 3, got the league wrapped up after 32 games, won the CL again. Jayden PB is now my back up DLF to Chiesa and he's pretty decent and improving. Bailey has been less effective this year, but still scored about 26.

I cashed in on Bailey - Real Madrid came in with £55m so took it. Mainly use Buendia & Traore there now, Cam Archer is doing well after just a few games. Managed to pick up Angeliño for £30m too, Digne was inconsistent so he’s a back up while Chrisene is on loan.

 

Just need some consistency from the AP, Ramsey is doing well but doesn’t seem to produce goals/assists but is always putting in 7/8 ratings.

Nice tactic, would you say that this is the same as Stevie G uses with Aston Villa? For  your corner set up try this:

delivery from both sidess set it to 2nd post use inswinging takers. 1 CB attack near post the other one attack 2nd post and your striker mark keeper. The other players you can set to whatever you like i normally let 2 players attack from the box and 1 lurk outside area but your CB will score lots of goals from this setup my best scorer was Fofana from Leicester with 15 goals. Just give it a try and see how it goes

Having got zero goals from the penalty spot/mark keeper corner tactic in season 1, I tried the far post in season 2 and got 3-4 goals from my centre back. Tried it again with a different CB in season 3 and he got 15 goals! So leaving it in for season 4. Managed to pick up De Ligt on a bosman, fingers crossed he heads in a few.

This tactic isn't designed on Stevie G's, which normally uses 2 AMC's and 1 striker, but the last 2 games, he's used 2 strikers with Coutinho centrally in the hole.

If you have the right CB’s the goals will come from that corner set up. I thinn Matthijs will do just great. And Coutinho in the hole works like a charm the last few games.

I've just finished my first season with this tactic with crystal palace and it's been quite impressive.

Champions League football here we come!!!

Next season I am going to try and get better players with the small budget that I will have and see where it takes me. Thanks for this brilliant tactic!!
