To be honest, might be worth switching team mentality to balanced instead of control when the opposition are pre match favourites and leaving it there for the full 90 minutes. If you try it, let us know how you get on. I'm actually gonna try it myself and will report back,

Yeah nice one I was just checking I wasn’t missing something like dropping to counter etc! Not expecting miracles in the first couple of seasons that’s for sure! 

Okay so I said I would report back and the sample size has been small but I know a good thing when I see one. Having switched from control mentality to balanced when the opposition are pre match favourites, the win rate has shot up from 27% to 71%, which is phenomenal. Was 3 points clear of the relegation zone and after switching, am now 12 points clear. Thanks for asking the question as it got me thinking.

I've now updated the initial post so it's attacking when you are favourites and balanced when the opposition are favourites and if you are satisfied with the score, go balanced plus time wasting.

In the screenshots below, I switched to balanced when opposition were favourites for the last 7 games so Crystal Palace away was the first game and we were actually the better team even though it was a 2-0 loss. From winning 7 from 26, have now won 5 from 7. It's the first season in the Prem and squad is made up of free signings and low value transfers, highest being £5m.

Further to my previous post, courtesy of @Bushy, I've updated the tactic usage instructions in the initial post to the following........

TACTIC USAGE (very important)...... this is a highly attacking tactic for teams that are pre-match favourites so pay attention to the pre-match odds. Whenever you are NOT pre-match favourites, switch team mentality to 'Balanced' and leave it there for the full 90 minutes. This will allow you to be defensively tighter in games where the opposition are the better team. Balanced mentality will also see your team score more from set pieces, especially corners. Don't ask how, it just does 😊.

Nice one! Glad it worked! I got frustrated with Leicester so I’m currently dominating the Spanish League with Athletico using this tactic (been favourite every game)

Sorry, my mistake. I've got counter mentality mixed up with balanced (late night lol) 🤦

Will be editing the previous posts acccordingly. Have to go balanced when opposition are pre match favourites, not counter.

Hello, this tactic definitely makes a difference. I tried this at New York RB when I started my career as an unemployed person and I have a win rate of about 60%. It's not perfect, but the team is playing really dominant on the field. Now I got a job offer from Werder Bremen. I'm in the middle of the season. I need my tactics to work better. Do you think the group of players I have will allow me to do better than I did in New York?

As long as you follow the instructions and understand you need to buy players to fit the system it will be fine

Actually, I've updated the tactic usage instructions after playing some more. Bit of a pain in the arse it is as I'm still not 100% on it but for now I've updated the initial post with the following..........

TACTIC USAGE

It's a plug and play tactic based on the theory that the best form of defence is attack. Only in-game change you need to make if you want to see the game out is to go defensive mentality and time wasting around the 75 minute mark, although I need to test this method to defend a lead in the last 15 minutes of games so for now it's just a suggestion rather than a tried and tested recommendation. Defensive and attacking set pieces are tweaked so to get the best out of the tactic, you'll have to download it from the link below. Corners should ideally be inswinging only.

NOTE......... Previously I've suggested changing team mentality based upon the pre match odds but in the long run that isn't any more successful than just leaving it as it is. This advice might get updated in future but for now it's to go the plug and play route and look to continually upgrade your players every summer transfer window when you get money to spend.

Keep as attacking or balanced then pal? 

Keep as attacking. Also don't bother with time wasting near the end of a game, it doesn't make much difference with an attacking mentality. If you really want to protect that lead, go defensive mentality and time wasting around the 70 minute mark. From my limited testing so far, this seems to work well. I've updated the initial post 'tactic usage' section with the following..........

It's a plug and play tactic based on the theory that the best form of defence is attack. Only in-game change you need to make if you want to see the game out is to go 'defensive' mentality and 'time wasting' on the 70 minute mark. This will allow your team to defend more stoutly and hit the opposition on the counter, and from my experience there's actually more chance of increasing your lead than there is of conceding an equaliser.

One thing to remember is that the tactic itself is designed for top half of the table teams. Might work for relegation battlers but no guarantees.

Is the striker supposed to be PF or do you have other suggestions ?

PF works well because he presses the defence so they have less time on the ball and also drops deep to link the play with the midfield and inside forwards but at the same time is still the focal point of the attack. The other thing with the PF is because he drops deep, he won't get caught offside as much as a poacher or an AF.

I'm sure other types will work but the PF is suited well to this tactic. The only thing you need to make sure by checking his personality traits and coach report is that he's not lazy as the PF is quite a physically demanding role.

The attributes I look for aside from the obvious shooting and movement are aerial, pace, creativity and strength...... in that order.

Hi mate gonna try these tactics in Vanarama National North.

Used them for the last 2 games of the season. 

2 draws both ending 1-1.

(21 shots / 5 on target / 1 CCC)

(14 shots / 5 on target / 2 CCC)

Very dominant tactic against higher up teams than me using balanced. Any tweak you suggest ? Seem to have an awful lot of shots but only scoring one goal etc.

New season starting now so will report back, very happy with the dominance but should be 2 wins and not 2 draws.

Im doing an academy only save so cannot buy suitable players only train up what I have.

It's a vertical tiki- taka.

 

I'm sorry, not sure why that is....... maybe someone else can help?

Are you sure it’s vertical tiki taka as mine always goes back to Gegenpress ???

So it seems if I set it to attacking then it’s vertical tiki taka but if I go to balanced it changes to Gegenpress….

Not sure if that’s same for everyone and or an issue or not.

An academy save, that's a tricky one because I always suggest to upgrade the players but that's something you can't do. Tactic with it's attacking mentality will perform well for top half of the table teams. Against teams that are much better, perhaps go defensive mentality. This is just a suggestion, needs testing.

No, makes no difference at all. I didn't even know what style it was until you asked.

Mate it’s going great. My team isn’t great yet I won my first 9 league games in a row.

Just past Christmas and I’m 14 points clear from second place at the top of the table.

So just finished a season of this tactic, was superb at first winning lots and finished top of the league.

I'm good thx, hope you are too. Unfortunately I really don't know anything about South American leagues so wouldn't be able to help. All I can suggest is that you keep upgrading your players every summer transfer window and yes, you need to have an assistant manager with motivational specialism. Even if he is a coach, that's fine. Just promote him to assistant manager and he will help keep the team's morale high.

Good point. I've only just found out how to check the version number so have no idea which version I'm talking about lol.

Hello, I tried this tactic in my Werder Bremen career without making any changes. With some of the transfers I made, we finished the league 3rd. Tottenham offered me the job of manager. Your tactic really works and thank you for making me enjoy the game so much.

En estos equipos chicos cambias los defensas con toque (BPD) a defensas central (CD), ¿o los mantienes en defensas con toque (BPD)?

This usually happens when you get the "Entertainer" manager title. There's not much you can do about it, unless you have another title you can pick instead. The only other option i've seen is to stick with it and hope you get the notification which allows you to remove it

I have had the same and the players complaining just don't play to their potential and their transfer value plummets over time.

I'd be interested to know how to pick another title so if you could elaborate, that would be great, thanks.

MAJOR UPDATE 14/2/24: Just had a week off work so was able to invest some time in the game and my conclusion is that the tactic should be used as a plug and play with CONTROL mentality. If you've already downloaded it, just change the team mentality to CONTROL and save the tactic as there's no other changes. If you're downloading it for the first time, you can do so by clicking on the download link just below the final screenshot at the end of the initial post.

The results achieved in the screenshots with Man Utd were done so by switching between ATTACKING and CONTROL depending on the match odds but United are an elite team with several world class players. However, the same does not apply to 95% of teams that others will be managing so from my play test with a couple of weaker teams, it's apparent that CONTROL mentality is the way to go as it allows for greater possession, more control and more selective progressive passing and shooting with the overall results just being better for teams that don't have an abundance of world class players and even if you do, it still works great. It's now plug and play and the only in-game change you need to make if you want to see the game out is to use the 'time wasting' option at any point from the beginning of the second half in order to frustrate the opposition.

Manager --> Manager Profile --> Change Title. 'Entertainer' is under the 'Tactical' heading. As you're only in the second season, i doubt you'll have unlocked one of the other 3 titles under that heading
