  1. Updated Version: Hope you are all doing well? I love my tactics above but a bit like Pep, although i want to keep the principles the same of possession and high pressing, I am always adapting and thinking of new ways to maximise this. Below i have provided images of an updated version of my tactic. As seen below, I have had huge success whilst maintaining the core principals. The main changes include mixed tackling and gk distribution. Mixed tackiling means that players tackle according to their strengths and do not get sent off as much. Short gk distribution was causing the keeper to feel too much pressure on passing short even in dangerous situations causing silly goals - Mixed gives the GK the option.DLP through research seems to be a role more suited to xavi at barcelona under Pep. Please test and have fun with this! I love success but also want my teams to play attractive football! I cant wait to test this on the new game!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜„
  2. Thank you so much for your kind words @Altair86. I was thinking of other managing opportunities and with it being the World Cup soon, decided to see how Scotland would progress playing the Tiki Taka style(again i modified it to be more accurate), which..in honesty, they probably dont have the right players for. But, somehow we clawed and fought our way through the best of them - Portugal/Argentina/England and finally Brazil at the Luzniki - the video below shows how we got on. Hope you enjoy it!๐Ÿ˜Š
  3. Hope this finds you all well! Just played a Season in the french national league with 'Groupe Sportife Consolat' my tweaked tactics(above)..and got fantastic results. I managed the team well with a lot of old players leaving as they didnt have the quality needed or due to unhappiness at being left out. I spent big but made 2/3m pounds profit from selling and rightly so...we won the league when the target was to finish mid table. Tactic worked great, due to the quality of the league, sometimes passes back or from the GK were gifts for the opposition but for the most part our passing was sublime, tackling good and scored some great goals to boot. This shows the tactic works IF you have the right players. Ill be continuing this journey and maybe experiment using better quality passing players and gk to see if we can move up to peps league in terms of possession. In matches, i try and change little and depend on my coaches and players who i trust to get the job done. I only sub off when below 6 or below 70 condition at half time.

  5. Agreed and i have to say the tactic is actually really good although no long term testings been done and i should say that for good quality keepers/defenders or teams, the short gk works a lot better. For lower teams, think mixed gk distribution is the way to go. If any wants to test this, that would be great. I am playing with it now too.
  6. Evening All, I hope this finds you all well, To start off with, why this tactic? Quite simply, the football Barcelona and Spain played with this philosophy were the most beautiful i have ever seen & are the reason i want to play football manager. So what are the positions? SK- This represents Valdes who was an incredible goalkeeper both for his saving ability and his ability to create play/chances through passing out & being great with his feet. WB & FB- This shows Abidal(more fb) and Alves(more wbk). Both liked to push forwards(alves going forward more) and all of Peps teams hold these players. A vital part of the team who need stamina to get up and down the pitch. BPD- This represents Puyol & Pique and shows how the defence were not just tackling but holding the ball as well and often passing the ball out from the back. BWM- This is Sergio Busquets role of being the anchor of the squad. He wins the ball back but does much more than that holding great technical skill to pass out of danger. CM- This represents Xavi as someone who might track back to help get the ball but ultimatly controls the game and holds incredible tactical ability to pass the ball. APM- This represents Iniesta who was the more attacking CM and who created and scored many goals INF- These represent Pedro and Villa and emphasis how Pep gave the wingers great responsibilty to not only provide but cut inside to score goals T- The closest to Messi's false nine and the position the game also give him is Trequartista. This works well with this player having a free role of drifting into space, passing in teammates & scoring with possible. For these roles, I have chosen these tactics: Balanced- Due to Barcelona not just being able play beautiful possession football but also knew how to win the ball back. Short- Chosen because for the most part, Barcelona liked to play in triangles on the floor passing it short when possible to teammates.(esp busquets,xavi & iniesta) Mixed- This is because the aim of tiki-taka is to keep the ball utilising the whole of the pitch. Short- This was tricky but the main point here is that the goalkeeper aims to pass it short 'where possible' again to maintain control & possession. Committed- This is because Barcelona did press hard in order to win the ball as high up the pitch as possible. Pressing- As above, Pressing was a key part of Barcelona and the Tiki-Taka style Offside trap- Chosen as the team wanted to win the ball as high up the pitch with the defence often pushing up. Counter attacking- This might seem a strange choice but like all the best teams, esp passing teams like Arsenal and Barca, they catch teams when there weak and counter attack them utilising the space they have lost. Men behind the ball- Because Barcelona did not press high up all of the team and you find that when they were not pressing high, they got back and cut down passing options, this was just as effective. soo, there is my take on Tiki-Taka, I am sure other people will disagree or think theres changes and thats great too! I have currently played one game with it(seen below with pictures and file with the match highlights) with unbelievable results and very relatable to Barcelona's unbelievable 2011 team with Possession/Chances/ Dominating Midfield/High Tacking rate etc. I hope you have enjoyed this and feel free to leave any compliments, comments or complaints.
  7. Original Tactic: The formation is 3-5-2 - This i have kept Emphasis - Normal - I have set the mentality to Balanced. Passing - Short - I have set the passing to Short Tackling - Normal - The tackling is set to Normal Pressing - Yes - The team is set to pressing Offside trap - No - The team does not play offside trap Counter Attack - No - The team does not Counter Attack Men Behind the Ball - No - The team does not play with men behind the ball I also don't play with a playmaker. - This is tricky and unless i made the CM a INF i needed to have a APM. Player instructions Passing - All set to team - No way of changing on FMM 17 Tackling all set to team except 3 centre midfielders who are set to HARD. - Again tricky and could not keep this completely so just added BWMs as the other CMs Pressing all set to yes except the back 3 defenders and the goalkeeper. - Again tricky to actually implement on FMM 17 Pass to - Everyone set to R/L/C - Tactics set to mixed passing Set pieces - haven't changed Free role - Both wide player (ML and MR) set to yes and everyone else No. -These are set to WM so they have the free role of attacking and defending Forward runs all no except wide men and the middle man of the 3 central midfielders and one of the strikers - So here the WM will be attacking as well with forward runs and so will the APM & AF which stays true to the instructions Run with ball - All no except wide men, middle of the 3 central midfielders and one of the strikers - Again, the APM and AF should make forward runs with the ball. Hold up ball - All set to NO - Hard to action on FMM 17 Long Shots - All set to No except all 3 central midfielders and the striker who is set to run with ball. - Very tricky to implement with all 3x CMs so figured the APM will get forward and in position for long shots and obviously so will the AF. If we are dominating, hopefully the BWMs might get forward and try some. Through Balls - All set to NO - No way of setting this Cross Ball - All set to NO - No way of setting this and the WM in attacking might cross the ball. Marking - Similar to NTFC, all set to man marking except goalkeeper, the middle of the 3 defenders and the middle of the 3 midfielders. - This was again hard to figure out on FMM 17 but basically changed the GK to SK to make him a bit more Zonal and BPD for the middle defender and obviously APM for the middle midfielder. -------------------------------------------------------------- I have played FMH since its beginning and remember on the earlier games this tactic being used. Although it was too easy at times and you would end up with a 70% win rate. It was a really good tactic and just wanted to check if in some form for FMM 17, the essence could be re-assembled. I have not yet done a full season or have any substantial results with this tactic. I have however just played my first game with it as seen below and looked pretty good. Hopefully this is a teaser for you to try it and test it and enjoy it ๐Ÿ˜
  8. Hi Kyle! Thank you so much for your response! Mine is on s6 edge and is Retina/HDTV. Would the bugs be reason for the white text on the news screen?
  9. Has anyone completed this challenged? If so, how? Any help is appreciated
  10. Hi All, hope this finds everyone well! Has anyone got a sky sports skin/theme for 2017? Is the 2016 version still okay? The other day i am sure i noticed a 2017 version of this but appeared to not be there now or has deleted? Also, on my news feed, the sub headings underneath keep on changing to white with no backround colour meaning i cant see them? Anyone else experienced this?(i have shown this below) Any help is appreciated
  11. Just an update on this one I posted the issue on https://community.sigames.com/topic/406113-against-the-run-of-play-achievement/ Jack Joyce has replied to me stating "We're currently looking into this issue. It is unlockable but does appear to be a bit too difficult at the moment." i have replied just asking if he has any pointers on this or is able to complete it his end. Has anyone else got any advice for this? Or completed it?
  12. Cheers AzmiG! So much appreciated. Anyone else have experience with this one?
  13. Has anyone here completed this challenge and how did you manage it?
