Tactics The Old Lady's Return [4-3-3]


Recommended Posts

Hello fmmvibe! I have browsed this new FMM24 forum, and noticed the "Tactics" section quite barren. So, in case anyone needs a tactic to bed themselves into the game, i might have something for you - basically the same tactic i posted last year, which i now tested in this edition over a full season with Liverpool.

It has all players contributing to goals across the board, with an emphasis on the front three. The fullbacks (Robertson and TAA largely, though i've also bought Valentino Barco and he's very good down the left as well - definite wonderkid) got the most assists for me, with a chunk of them coming from set-pieces but largely from crosses and the like. 

When in possession of a tight lead late on, i sometimes switched the mentality to "Control" or "Defensive". But in all, i've done very little tinkering over the season - i believe this is what you'd call a "Plug and Play". 

The tactic itself:

Looks good. What did you do for corners?

The default bar the last handful of matches where i tested to see if the infamous corner tactic still works (all players Stay Back aside from your best Aerial player being on Mark Keeper, aim for the Penalty spot) and VVD bagged like 3 goals from them. I didn't test it earlier because i wanted to see how the tactic holds up on its own without much tinkering of any sort.

I have a try to yours, last match against Liv we won but it was just 1-0. But this match...you can see. I dunno what problem to us about tac or players. I will try for some matches more for this one

What year of your career are you in? I see totally different players from the current squad.

You're playing away at Liverpool which is one of the hardest games. Also some of your players are not very good.

I can confirm that, at least in low categories, there's an embarassing domination with this tactic, even if without any corner trick.

The high level of pressure and the IFs that cover total front of the final third seems to burn easiky any opposing resistence. Need some adding set if you play against teams of upper leagues.

I started off with this tactic, but I was creating loads of chances but not really converting that into results - So I changed my midfield around a little to better make use of the players I had - I now play with the middle 3 as RP - A - RP. It seems to be working well! I don't create as much, but I beat Man City 4-0 twice in 1 season as Arsenal. Also winning the league + UCL

I can confirm this works very well with Wrexham, however I have made a fair few changes to the squad but this is where I'm at currently using exactly what you've posted

Amazing. How is Nunez performing? 

I sold him for 90M to Leipzig and he was outstanding for them 😁

I replaced him with Martinez for the same price and a sell on fee, and he's a complete beast!

Thanks.

I think I should do the same with both Nunez and Gakpo. They are both underperforming.

I'm giving this a shot with Aveley now, will keep you posted

Made the following small tweaks:

  • Lower defensive line
  • FB rather than WB
  • Managed closing down in games to due my players being fat pub level athletes
  • Changed to defensive/control towards the end of most games

 

One of the worst teams in VNS...won the play offs, the FA trophy, scored 121 (!) league goals and my whole squad hates me after I was awarded an 'entertainer' badge.  I vote that a success!

EDIT:  I made most of these changes 1/4 of the way through the season - we were leaking goals (conceded over 70 for the year).  My defence was also particularly weak, which I quite enjoyed as it just added to the insanity

Yes my squad hated me as well when I got the entertainer badge. Wish I didn't have it...

Yeah it doesn't really make sense.  A few of the comments are along the lines of wishing the manager focused on results rather than entertaining, but they were only made at the end of the season after going 18 games unbeaten 😕

You can actually turn the titles off after you've unlocked them. If you go to Manager Profile, there is a tab at the bottom for it.

Looks like you can swap it for another title in that category, but not switch it off completely.

Looks like i'm going to be hated for a while yet!

I'm on a save with a portuguese team. The 1st season I pretty much tried the game with the original team with no transfer, 2nd I got the promotion and on the 3rd season I managed to achieve maintenance on the 3rd league.

I'm now heading for the 4th season and I'm aiming for promotion.  Considering we are underdogs for certain I'll approach this with a little more defensive mentality. Apart from that do you recommend any specific attributes to be focused on?

Will post the results when I finish the season.

Thanks for the share!

Finally a tactic I can play. It worked very well for me. The matches I hosted were excellent. However, there were problems away from home in some matches. Thank you for the tactic.

Did a complete season with this tactic. Keep in mind that most of my players are kinda weak and were new to the club.

The start was a bit of and I conceded most of the games through the save. This is probably because I have the attacking mentality. My CB and GK were probably the best of the team but still we gave away a lot of goals despite being the team with the least goals conceded.

Here are the season results

The team as a lot of potential and will most likely go for the next season with the same tactic but with a new left IF. Depends how everyone transition. From my experience the main problem with starting with a tier 4 portuguese team is that players usually don't stay longer than 2 years on the same team which makes pretty hard to create relationships inside the team unless you keep climbing.
 

Anyway here is a overview of how the team looks by the end of the season

Also I feel like comparing with most teams I feel like we ain't spending all that much despite so far hitting decent transfers.
Here some more trivia about the team

I'm assuming that my IFs need better scoring ability in order to make a real difference. Will keep updating when I have more information.
