  1. thanks. glad you liked it Some interesting changes, and i agree with the reasoning behind. Glad its working out well for you
  2. Each year I try to re-create the Grande Inter set up to see if A it is possible and B if it can be effective in the modern game. This year, I think I may just have cracked the formula. A common misconception is that Herrera's team was straight up defensive, when it was actually quite attacking. The team was more about efficiency than defense ; In Helenio Herrera's version in the 1960s, four man-marking defenders were tightly assigned to the opposing attackers while an extra player, the sweeper, would pick up any loose ball that escaped the coverage of the defenders. The emphasis of this system in Italian football spawned the rise of many top Italian defenders who became known for their hard-tackling and ruthless defending. However, despite the defensive connotations, Herrera claimed shortly before his death that the system was more attacking than people remembered, saying 'the problem is that most of the people who copied me copied me wrongly. They forgot to include the attacking principles that my Catenaccio included. I had Picchi as a sweeper, yes, but I also had Facchetti, the first full back to score as many goals as a forward.' Indeed, although his Grande Inter side were known primarily for their defensive strength, they were equally renowned for their ability to score goals with few touches from fast, sudden counter-attacks, due to Herrera's innovative use of attacking, overlapping full-backs. Under Herrera, Inter enjoyed a highly successful spell, which saw them win three Serie A titles, two European Cups, and two Intercontinental Cups Some key features i wanted were: less possession than the opponent, but more shots overall - Want me players to get the ball up, and attacked with speed. no sideways rubbish. Another thing i wanted was to be hard to break down, so that if the other team was set up to defend and be boring, that they would have a chance to hit me on some nonsense counter. The needed to be under pressure from my team all the time, and to have any mistakes taken advantage of. the main player roles i wanted to mirror were the attacking fullbacks Tarcisio Burgnich and Giacinto Facchetti, Armando Picchi the sweeper, Suárez the playmaker, Jair the winger, Mario Corso the left midfielder, and Sandro Mazzola, who played on the inside-right. LWB for facchetti was an easy one Burgnich is tougher, but I went with a CB/BPD on the right side of central defence as the DFB option was hopeless and isolated in game Picchi is a central sweeper/libero Suarez i alternative between APM and DLP, depends on the players you have available Jair is a Defensive winger, no other real options there Mario Corso I struggled with. The player roles on the wings werent right. And i dont think he was a true inside forward. I alternated between a left sided AM and a left sided BBM Mazzola ideally would be a right sided Trequartista, but I didnt have the player for it, and Lukaku is a great CF playing on the right (see below) With the above in mind, I set about firstly trying to map out the starting positions, a little tricky given the rigidity of FMM, but eventually settled on an Asymmetric set up. I've tested it out a with a flip reverse to similar effectiveness (RDW drops to RWB, and LWB pushes up to LDW - and CF and AM switch sides). Also effective was change the strikers to a TM/AF set up - guess it depends on the forwards you have available. It was a real struggle to find the right fullbacks, and I'm still not completely satisfied with the return from any of my LWBs I also tested out a slightly different set up dropping the AM back a bit. Have included both here, they both work well, I can decide which is better
  3. shocked that you moved Lukaku on and Damborio.... and brought in that horrible Cuadrado.... and how on earth did you manage to sell so many to Milan lol glad you got the tactic working.
  4. this looks like a good one. I'll be sure to test it out
  5. i used something similar to great effect. Well done
  6. AF is scoring boatloads (30+) . CF has the same number but split about 40/60 between goals and assists
  7. works very well. I tweaked it a little to suit the players i had. CF and AF up top. BWM dropped back and into a DLP Control, Wide, Normal, Overlap, Work into Box Mixed pass and Short Gk
  8. longest and most upsetting penalty shootout>>>
  9. try one of these: https://fmmvibe.com/forums/topic/43940-fmm20-tactics-index/
  10. when you start, check the free agents. You can almost always sign a top quality player for a smaller team
  11. hi All, Put together this flexible 433 shape that scores a boatload of goal but equally can grind out a scrappy 1-nil. the keys are the central midfielders, and the central striker. all 3 roles can be chopped and changed based on the opponent or how the game is progressing. snatching at chances? lots of attempts but not on target? Change one or both CMs to APM or APM/BBM combo. Striker not involved? Change to a DF or CF Inside Forwards not seeing the ball? Change the striker to a DF or TM If you're being FM-ed, the mentality can be upped or dropped back without affecting the overall set up. (ie push to attacking or back to Counter) Im testing tested with other teams now, hopefully it works for you
  12. Update, season complete and I was able to win the europa league. No major incomings except for a wonderkid keeper and a few young player loans (as backup) tightest defense in the league by a long long way. Chopped up the system a little with the two CMs. was BBM/BWM now AP/BBM
  13. i think it needs to be linked to your google play/game centre accoutn. could be wrong, im not 100%
