  1. You deserve great credit. It is hard to mimic rl tactics in to FM and make them work to the same extent. This one is a rarity! IRL Man City has been Scrooge-like in defence this season and so has your tactic in FM for me. Look at this, 10 games without conceding, furthermore I have conceded twice in the last 14 and one of those was an OG from a youth defender in a cup game!
  2. ...safe to say that this tactic is working quite nicely...
  3. The biggest compliment I can give this tactic is that it really nullifies the chances it affords to the opposition. I am having top six teams fail to register a single shot on goal - and this is when they are the home side! The only goals I am conceding (except from flukes, penalties or own goals) are the balls over the top when my defenders are caught out by pace. So, I have dropped the defensive line to balanced and not high. I have also found shoot on sight is getting me more goals.
  4. So far so good. Been working quite well. Not amazing, yet, though. Very good on defence, conceding very few clear cut chances, but not creating that many at the other end. It is very susceptible to the long ball over the top (because of the high line) so your CBs should be super fast. Possession is good, but not totally dominant, despite me having all world class players...will update further in as my players get familiar with it...
  5. Struggling to find appropriate IWBs but like the formation. would it work quite well with traditional WBs?
  6. anyone had this awful bug where if you look at your previous fixtures, all the scorers names have changed? And not even to players that are in your team?
  7. This is an excellent tactic. Made some tweaks with the passing (short to mixed) and the cms and cfs to suit the players I have. Leaky at the back at first, but once you get the team used to it, it's very hard to beat this tactic, as it always creates more clear cut chances than opponents do. After keeping Newcastle up in The Saviour Cometh challenge in season1, I won the FA Cup and finished 3rd in season 2, and somehow won CL and finished 2nd in season 3. Which enabled me to purchase Haaland in season4. Should win the title now, in season 5...currently unbeaten in to the end of September. Thank you for this setup @Ribas
  8. As we near the release of the new FMM19, I am happy I found this tactic. It definitely wins the 'most consistent and balanced tactic' award for me. There have been other good tactics, but none that have really lasted the distance and are either too attacking or leaky at the back. With this one, you won't be scoring 5 or 6 every match, but you will have a healthy dose of chances and will seldom give the opposition many real goalscoring opportunities. Needs an unselfish striker who lays on goals for the wingers. The midfield duo really thrive with this tactic, whereas with others they always get low ratings. Mirrors why many teams irl are now reverting to 3 at the back.
  9. This is the Solskjaer of tactics. This is my go-to tactic when I need to score goals as its so attacking. But starting it as my default tactic doesn't have the same impact.
  10. It's fallen a cliff for me. Just like every other tactic in FMM 18. They all mostly start well, but have a shelf life of maybe one season and then the AI smothers it. It's frustrating.
  11. started the tactic at the beginning of the season and hit December...and with it a wall. Not only losing to mediocre teams, but being dominated by them. Also, Harry Kane who scored 43 in 49 appearances the year before hasn't scored in 10 games. The IF's getting the goals.
  12. It's becoming very leaky at the back. Losing too many away games and consistently conceding at least 2 or 3 on my travels. Another one that the AI seems to have cracked.
  13. I am on the latest update. Thank you for this splendid tactic. The only tweak I have made is replaced 'shoot on sight' with 'work into box' as I find that I get more ccc's that way instead of speculative long shots.
  14. Next one...ignore the scoreline...I have never had 20 shots on goal away from home in the EPL on fmm18 and look at the possession - 63%
