  1. THE SETUP The formation that i intend to use is a 4-3-3 variant 2-3-2-3. In this setup we have two ball playing defender to encourage "Play From Back", behind two BPD is a Sweeper Gk to which makes a passing triangle, similar to the one formed between BPDs and DM. 2 wingbacks are there to provide necessary width as i intend to play narrow in order the reduce the chances of space exploitation. The DM is in Roaming playmaker role so that he can contribute in both, dense & attack. On Flank i'm using Inverted Winger and Inside Forward. Aright footed IW who can cut inside and look for pass/through ball unto which IF of another flank can latch or The Trequartista playing in center can. These IW and IF provicde the attacking width This combination create load overload on one flank, leaving the other one to be exploited. Lets looks at the tactics : TRANSFERS SHAPE DEFEND INSTRUCTION ATTACK INSTRUCTION In this setup which is an emulation of pep's real life tactics, we are playing high line defense along with high press all over the pitch in order to win back the possession. The passing tempo is set high for unpredictability and tiring the opponent in making them chase the ball. In final third we are playing with shorter passes which is achievable by narrow instruction although the setup is wide. Passing focus is setup central as we want to exploit defence by making vertivcal passes rather than making sideways passing which yields nothing. SET-PIECES a) Attack b) Defend RESULTS STATS LEAGUE TABLE MANAGER P.S.- This tactics initially isn't much effective with mid-table team although it gets the job done. As the players develop the tactics become more effective. With big team it seems to work, although i am yet to test it out fully with big clubs. Observation 1) Here in another save i used the same tactics to great effect. Looks at Harvey Barnes stats playing Trequartista role and how improved it's over Rodrigo's stats. It's also down to better decision making, movement which Rodrigo lacked plus Leicester City was much better team with much better players. 2) Another mid season try with sub-par Valencia team thin on players. Initially results weren't good due to lack of first team player, once i got some players on loan, mostly in under 20s, results improved drastically. solid defensively but lacking finishing touch in opponents half. Missed lots of scoring opportunity due to poor attributes. Thanks for reading 🙃
  2. Now the time has come to write down about this strikerless or false9 setup 😜. See one thing that i have realized after trying & failing in what i explained above one after another iteration of this game is its not about scoring lots of goals rather its about enjoying the game. So it's more toward realism. Let's discuss the idea. I have tailored this tactics after Joseph Guardiola’s philosophy at Barcelona or present Manchester city. I like to show you what it’s based and founded on – its pillars / core principles. My aim here is to merge real football with Football Manager Mobile, letting you get a closer view on the tactical aspect of the possession style of play. Tiki Taka as described by Pep : "Everything starts with the ball and finish with the ball. The game is 11 versus 11 with ONE ball. We try to keep the ball, we try to play with the ball, we try to make everything with the ball". Which can be summarized as “take the ball – pass the ball“. Football is not about players, or at least not just about players; it is about shape and about space, about the intelligent deployment of players, and their movement within that deployment. The Core Principles : 1. Player Positioning 2. Movement & Passing 3. Team Cohesion 4. Pressing Player Positioning [2-3-2-3] What is significant to the different variants of 4-3-3 the clear diamond structures. It’s not only the midfield diamond which is apparent, but also the diamonds created in the defensive area with the sweeper keeper and the diamonds / rhombus shapes on the left and right flank. How compact the diamond is depends on the positioning and movements of the DM and the ST, which the system revolved around. How wide the diamonds are could depend on match scenarios, if the team were in attacking phase or defensive phase or the setup of roles. If we should take one thing with us from the tiki taka era, it’s the emphasize on player positioning to create as many lines of play as possible – making it both harder for the opposition team to regain and retain possession – as it’s harder to penetrate a block of 7 lines (see the positional template), which is compact and based on team unity, than to get through a two-dimensional formation (attack/defend) where there are only 2 to 3 lines of play. The positional system, from Guardiola to Johan Cruyff, focused all on : to create as many triangles as possible in order to maximize the amount of passing options for all players. to make the pitch as big as possible when in possession of the ball giving the team the ability to utilize / exploit spaces to make the pitch as small as possible to regain possession quicker by denying space to the opposition team in the defensive phase Movement & Passing : As explained in pep's word the entire system is based on take the ball and pass the ball. Its just not about passing the ball for the sake of passing rather its about passing the ball quickly between players, it is about interchanging positions and intelligent movement that can create space and passing lanes for others to exploit. This is why to make this system work it's of utmost importance to have players with high movement attribute or one should train players to increase his attribute. Higher the attribute, higher will be player mobility. Higher the mobility, the more unpredictable your team will be. Along with high movement and passing another must have attribute is TEAMWORK. It's extremely imp. to have players; esp. midfielders and defenders with high teamwork. Now coming to passing , Player preferred moves which increases the probability of retaining possession are; Play a simple passing game, looks for the pass rather than the shot. Along the short simple horizontal passing its also important to play vertical passing so that opposition's defense can be unlocked. Player preferred movements to consider is: tries killer balls often. If the player have this trait, one must not enable Play Through Balls. By playing too many through ball team will concede possession which ultimately may lead to counter attack. Team Cohesion : Team Cohesion has a minimal effect on player morale, but it does impact how well they understand each other on the pitch. When cohesion is heightened, happiness can often improve due to an increased level of performance. one may how do you increase team cohesion or Relationship (as in FMM21) ? well the more you play a set of players the more they understand each other. Cohesion is extremely important as it let players predict each others movement. It directly affects how your team defends and how your team attack. Have A-Team and B-team in your squad and play 'em in alternate matches initially, later on once the relationship builds intermix the squad. This is how a well oiled squad looks like. Green Line depicts great chemistry b/w the player. The more yellowish the line is the lower their chemistry is. No line means no chemistry. Team Cohesion + Movement + Passing = UNPREDICTABILITY P R E S S I N G : As the title may suggest you have to press your opponent high up the pitch to win Regain possession as quickly as possible and as close to the opponents goal as possible. For pressing the team is setup with high defensive block with their central defenders up to around the half-way line – congesting play to the middle third. The high defensive block is essential to the style in order to make it function successfully in my point of view. Despite it leaving huge areas behind the d-line, which the opposition could counter in. But it was a risk worth taking as it laid the foundation for improved ball circulation and an enhanced opportunity to regain possession quickly.
  3. Hello guys 🙂 i am back on vibe after a long hiatus. I kind of lost interest in football manager. You may ask why ? Well tbh after seeing so many of you guys posting 1k goal challenge and other stuff, i tried to do the same. In hope of emulating others I tried many of the tactics posted on site as well as tried to create my own tactics but none seem to work, some didn't work at all while some did but results started to falter midway. No amount of tinkering worked. Failure after failure, i grew frustrated, in some instances i just wanted to throw my phone outta window. I stopped playing the game. Thus began the long hiatus. Disinterested. The only association i association i had with football was watching matches (not even Fifa and PesMobile). Even this was ruined up to an extent (Watching this horrendous Barca side loose so many games & their play style). Meanwhile Pep's Man city masterclass was a delight to watch. I began to rediscover my interest as i got to watch Pep's fluid total football. Eventually i re-downloaded FMM21 last week. Realizing why i decided to uninstall it in first place, i decided not to put too much emphasis on making one guy center point of my team but rather on emulating the real life football (like pep's city) where i can enjoy it. Hence came the idea of strikerless football. I know, many times this has been posted on this forum, still im going to write it down. Whats my setup & why, tactics and set-pieces and other aspects. P.S. - I'm not good at writing but i will try to write down my idea. Hope y'all don't mind.
  4. Tactics look great. Everyone's reponse is quite positive. Will definitely give it a try. I've been struggling to create a tactics that works constantly which is why i haven't been able to play any save after 2-3 season. Hopefully this will work & i get to finish a save for the first time. Will post the results soon.
  5. Illiax moriba become one of the best midfielder in the game. He cost something b/w 20-30m. You can use him as RP or BBM.
  6. They are coach & Every coach has a preferred tactics that why i think have tactics section in their profile. So choose your coach who has play style same as yours so that when you put 'em to manage ur reserve squad your reserve squad train with same tactics. @Ashez if you play ur b-team in ur reserve setup will they develop relationship since they are playing together ??
  7. I tried your tactics with Everton without signing any players (except 2-3 backups). No tweak. Tried it the way you posted, results are decent at best.Could you tell more about the tweaks that you make during the game. Transfer Results Stats Table
  8. Go to settings menu & change this 👇 You can thus see the attributes for a trained role, now go to training and focus on any of these weak attributes & later on on secondary attributes. Apart from attributes check out for complimentary player traits. They're really helpful.
  9. Yeah they don't develop in reserve but ur legendary striker to play for reserve when they are 15/16/17 before being promoted or sent on loan. Were talking about issue of attributes not devloping even when we loan a b-team player. Any idea ??
  10. Or they can make 2nd team as they were in earlier versions. Everything that you said used to happen back then. Payer development wasn't even an issue, i could happly demote players to B-team until they were mature enough for 1st team. Is it true that we can't upgrade their facility?? I think this issue of players not devloping attributes is down to the facts that their playing level is way below than level they should be playing at ( based on their Current ability)
  11. Tried it with top tier clubs, didn't work. What's the benefit of having it when they don't develop even after playing games. This is one of the main reason i haven't Managed Bundesliga(Except Frankfurt, RBL & Leverkusen) and LaLiga teams. I mainly play for youth development and having entire team of academy youths 😕.
  12. When you put youth players in your reserve team they do grow their stats but if you demote players to B/2nd team, even when they play, their stats simply don't grow irrespective of the training facility of team. Same thing happens when you loan out a player from b-team or demote a player after loaning him out. ( Even if i sim the game for a season or two, they don't grow). Does anyone have any kind of idea why this thing happens?
  13. When do you use pressing forward?? Just curious 🤔 Will try out ur tactics. Results look promising.
  14. Thanks mate. Can you shed some light on tactics/formation that was used in Danish Dinamite team, searched about it but i could only find the story part not the tactical aspect. 😁 Did it work for you?? Im yet to test it in EPL & other leagues.
  15. Thanks mate. I use anchor man only because he doesn't move up rather drop back b/w two center backs more like a half back. DLP has worked for me only when i play him in midfield trio with BWM & AP/RP, Where DLP operate behind BWM & AP. Pushed up WB is leaves defense vulnerable but my motto is to outscore my opponent & hyper-pressing works pretty well in this version. My opponent barely had much possession. Plus having pacy BPD and Anchor man almost nullify opposition attack. Now i need to use original tactics & tweaked tactics in EPL and La Liga to check whether it works or not.
