  1. Hey guys; Even though it’s early days and still needs work, I recently started an FM blog with a little bit of a twist. Inspired by some of the content I’ve seen on other FM blogs and Joe.co.uk, I’ve launched a blog that will explore the journey of different avatars and the teams they manage. However, instead of outright blogging, the content will be in the form of essays, article writing, news repetitive and feature writing, similar to Four Four Two, When Saturday Comes and the like. I’ve just started a career with Gary McStrachaghan, a young Scottish manager who starts unemployed and gains his first job at Cowdenbeath FC with the hope of implementing a Moneyball style strategy whilst taking Cowdenbeath FC through the divisions. Let me know what you think. I’ll add as much content as I can over time. https://justonemoregame.blog
  2. Hey guys; anyone know when there will be a topic of thread for ideas for FMM 2021? Or will it be added under this subject at a later date?
  3. This is the kinda stuff I love to see. A slightly weird looking tactic but I love that you’ve tried it with different teams with minimal investment and yielded relatively successful results. Going to give it a whirl and see how it gets on. Thanks for this! Awesome stuff!
  4. Maybe there have been some updates which has altered the game and tactics slightly? I’ve always found that after an update (even if unrelated to player does and tactics) that they don’t always work the same as before
  5. Yeah that doesn’t like a bad idea. The amount of shots and goals though are insane. I’ve also mid only a few signings for Notts County (all free transfers and some older players too) and it’s working really well. Thansk again; a truly great (almost) plug’n’play tactic
  6. Ok awesome. But when you play the 3-4-1-2 with the Target Man + Poacher, do you play the BBM adjacent to the Poacher and the BWM with the TM or other way around? I started a journey man career and was hired by Notts County; they wanted me to improve the the squad in the first season and I missed out on the play-offs by a point after being 10 points off. now in my first full season and I’m about 17pts clear. It really is an incredible tactic.
  7. Do you have screen shots of your updated/modified tactic? Looks great! Gonna give it a whirl
  8. Ok this helps a lot. However, I’m still looking for guidance on how to put together the midfield and forwards. Question; does anyone on here actually know how Sheffield Utd play?
  9. Sure thing; tactics a list below. Shape = Attacking / Balanced / Normal / Balanced Defence = High / All Over / Normal / Yes / No Attack = Look for Overlap / Work Into Box / Through Balls / Mixed / Mixed / Mixed Like I say I’m looking to replicate Sheff Utd tactics specifically with overlapping Centre backs (which I guess in this case are Libero’s), meaning I need to figure out how to have the midfield and forwards positioned
  10. Thanks for the advice Anders! His tactics are revolutionary in my opinion. He has two Centre backs overlapping the midfield that help support the attack, generally with at least one striker dropping deep to link up play. My conundrum is how closely the players in real life would reflect the player roles in what would essentially be a 5-3-2 formation with Wingbacks, 2 Libero’s and a 3 man midfield
  11. Hey Football Manager Fam, what’s good! After following them for the first half of this season, I’m looking for help at attempting to recreate a tactic that’s reminiscent of Sheffield Utds’s current tactics with Chris Wilder. Creating a plug n play tactic isn’t as easy as it used to be, although I feel now you can have more of a specific/personal tactic where it’s easier to find and train players in the Louis that one is looking for. In this instance, I’m looking for help with a couple of questions; • For a back 5 (or a back 3 with Wingbacks), how would you play the overlapping centre backs? As a Liverpool or Ball Playing Defenders? • What would you have the third Centre back play? • How would you have the three midfielders play? • How would you have the two forwards play (Target Man + Defensive Forward / Deep Lying Forward + Poacher / etc.)? I ask as I’m a little unsure how the players and their roles would translate into FMM2020. The role of the team for example would be pretty straight forward I feel, in terms of overlapping, work into the box, pressing high, overloading in attack and so on. Your thoughts on this would be great and it would be great to see how these tactics would be implemented!
  12. Totally agree. I’ve generally found that with the FMM series, the tactics have become more player specific throughout the years. Even if you find a universal tactic, it can turn a relegation team into a top 4/6 team or a midtable into champions. I think this is especially true for the current version. I’ve also found that some tactics work fine through the divisions, although I guess this is partly because I tend to scout for cheap/young players for the roles that already exists anyway (long gone are the days of me buying dozens of South American regens and hoarding them on my reserves...)
  13. Nice. Going to give it a go with Concord Rangers. Wish me luck!
  14. Hey guys; long time listener here although not a first time caller; I’ve contributed very sporadically over the years, more in the form of comments as opposed to content and useful information. I’ve been a big fan of the series for a long time; I especially love FMM as it means I can take it on the go, play whenever I want but I don’t have to obsess about the details affiliated with the PC game. Controversial as it sounds, I’ve always used tactics on this site to play the game with. I don’t always have time to come up with my own, and when I’m wanting to take Concord Rangers up to the Championship with British only players whilst secretly asset stripping the club of its best individuals whilst still wondering if it can survive (a la Southampton and Newcastle style), this site has become a valuable resource for me and many people like me. Because of this, I have to tip my hat to all those die hard fans that test and try all the tactics on this site to make sure that anything titled ‘win everything’ or ‘God Tactics’ or ‘Any Team Formation’ so that what works for York City and Forrest Green also works for Hamburg, Torino, Getafe and the like. That being said, I feel like the recent spate of bug fixes and updates have not only not truly been fixed (i’ll get onto that on another thread), but a lot of tactics seem to fail in a way that they’ve never failed before. I realize that players need to be more in tune with the formation and the margins are finer when it comes to this subject in the FMM2019 version, but what are everyone’s thoughts on this? Are my beloved ‘plug n play’ tactics dead? Is their still room for them to exist in the game? Or do we hate them because it makes the game too easy? Do the developers troll this site to counteract them with an updated AI when there’s a bug that needs fixing? Seriously interested in people’s opinions on this matter, especially those that have been contributing on this thread for years and consistently aka @AndersJ @shosky and others (sorry I don’t know the handles of everyone here).
  15. Having the ability to load up ‘specific patches’ (ie geographical areas) would be cool, even if it was in the form of an add on that you would have to buy. bring able to load up leagues in Eastern Europe/Baltic’s/Balklans would be cool, same with South America. The idea of being able to load up leagues from the likes of Argentina, Brazil, Mexico et al. would be super dope. And even better would be that updates wouldn’t effect the tactics being used when playing the game(!)
