Career Sporting FC Career/Tactic


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

First kind of post like this so bare with me. This post is intended to be a career test type save, I don't want to post it in tactics because I'm not sure if the tactic is good, the players vs the quality of the league is good, or any of these factors, this save is not under "test conditions" unfortunately I have limited playing time do can't do thorough tests, however after seeing it's performance @DanEnglishmight want to do his thing 🧐😂

 

Like a large portion of the community I quite enjoy the plug and play style of FM as I don't fully understand football too a technical degree but I do enjoy the game, and this year is no different and I've been absolutely dominating the leagues thanks to @Black Hawk and his ridiculously good tactic.

 

However I do also like variety and after endlessly scrolling and plugging in a few suggestions I just couldn't get the results I was after or I had to make changes and not be that lazy player I'm proud of being.

 

In comes The Fiddler. Named so, because I have to fiddle with my team to put them in the right position because the auto pickl feature doesn't play them where I want...w I didn't create this tactic, I found it on a post on Facebook so credit to the guy that posted it if you're in here, legend!

I was getting premier league fatigue and also bored of picking the same nations at the beginning of my save so I loaded up Portugal, Italy, Spain, England and Poland. I picked Sporting simply based on their facilities and maxed the youth facilities with my first request to prepare for the future. I play with sugar daddy on and work permits off, with editor enabled so I can check potential ratings, I don't actually change anything, this would be indicated by my edit button being yellow instead of grey if I had. Kinda cheaty but it's more of a test save than anything.

My coaching badge level is gold and I specialise in Youth. I run my coaches X2 Attacking X1 Youth and X1 Fitness. All gold/natural. I have gold scouts but I don't generally use them, I search more for attributes that fit the roles of my tactic rather than finding regens that might not fit the tactic. And my physio set up is X2 Rehabilitation and X1 Prevention.

Now, I'm not 100% certain how much the above paragraph actually impacts the game because I'm not a stats guy and I don't fully understand the inner workings of the game, however as a general player who reads these types of posts, they're always questions I've got in the back of my mind, I almost like to copy everything. So I've included it :)

 

The two big free transfers I took advantage of straight away was De Gea and Bale. After these 2 signings I realised that sporting had a ridiculously large team and I needed to move some players on so I could bring in some more talent. So I went straight to manager options and asked my assistant to loan out all players in the Res Squad under 24 and loaned out all 4* PA players and took advantage of the loan trick to offload anything below that. Money wasn't an issue with a starting budget of 128m so I got rid of a few players for free too. I'm not a big fan of huge squads and I don't plan on managing the reserve squad.

I had a look at the squad after the culling and decided that defensively, sporting had a good selection of players and also offensively, but there were no star players in the attack, so after bringing Bale in I decided on Chiesa from Juventus, Gnoto from Leeds and Wonderkid Chris Rigg from Sunderland with the left over cash (more on him later). I felt like the midfield was lacking a little bit too so I brought in Koch from Leeds as he fits the BWM role perfectly.

I had a bit of an injury crisis and I had sold a few of my extra players in the cull so I had to bring off Cabral from loan to ease the depth. But in January I sold him and Marcus Edwards and replaced them both with Jack Sergeant from Norwich, for some reason it's not showing in the transfer history but I picked him up for 20m.

 

Below are the goals/assists:

As you can see, Bale and Chiesa have had an absolute blaster of a season and Sargent is 5G1A in 7 games. I'm not playing the corner tactic however I have set my corners to "penalty spot" and changed my best aerial CD to mark the keeper. These are good stats however it's not what has impressed me most about the tactic. I haven't once changed anything in game aside from subs, but take a look at the stats below.

These tactic is very good defensively domestically, and has worked thus far in Europe. I think the IWB and 3 at the back almost make this tactic a 5-2-1-2 but with very supportive WBs.

 

I also just wanted to add in the development of Chris Rigg, I've set his training to Trequartista and Chiesa as his mentor he's out for a couple of weeks at the moment so I'm hoping it doesn't hamper his development like FM likes to do.1956364930_Screenshot_20240106_214735_FM24Mobile.thumb.jpg.4104b535210301b259fef3253bf7a58a.jpg

Mentoring setups are as follows:

Chiesa - Rigg

Gyökeres - Gnoto

Koch - Diomande

Jerry St. Juste - Inacío

 

Can't think of anything else that I haven't already included but if you have any questions or want any further screenshots just ask, and obviously any recommendations are welcome! 

 

Peace 💪

Overload for the whole match, as it seems to me is not the right decision because when you are trying to open the opponent's defense, you have nowhere to raise the mentality when it is already at maximum, but if there was for example Balanced,Attacking then you would be able to gradually raise the mentality thus countering the response to the opponent. You just don't have any room to maneuver.

I'll bring it down to attacking and see how it goes, just finishing up the first season

Just to say that this tactic might be the one! (and I might be jynxing it 😅)

I've been trying it this afternoon in two saves where nothing was working and it kinda works. One defeat here and there (never being an annoying one or inexplicable), but an overall amazing tactic so far.

It reminds me of the first cheat tactics in Championship Manager 1 and 93-94. The IWBs almost work as defensive midfielders and it goes like a central 3-2-2-1-2.

I think that what amazes me is the option for a direct style.

@nathyb, can you track down the original post on FB?

It's a good tactic I won't lie, and not anymore mate, the post was a while ago I'd be digging for hours lol. But I've added more detail in this post than what was on there, he just showed his results whereas I've showed a bit more here, I've also done a few more seasons and i still have access to this save
