  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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%
  8. First game Vs a strong Napoli side (Europa Cup winners) - could not wish for a better start!
  9. Will give it a go. Not much working for me - my players individual brilliance rather than the tactics are winning me the matches and trophies at present
  10. I tried it with two full backs and it actually made my defence worse! Also, leaked two goals when 2-0 up with 4 mins to play against a mid table club when I applied the contain rule using a back 5. I have returned to wing backs and will continue to tinker as I think that this tactic is almost perfect. A couple of tweaks needed.
  11. I agree the defence isn't the tactic's best feature. My wing backs keep getting low ratings and are often caught out. I may pull them back so that they make a back four...will let you know if this shores it up without impacting the attack
  12. I am giving this one a good go with Champions League champions Liverpool in season 22/23. Currently unbeaten with this tactic after 10 games with away wins against top six teams including Arsenal and Spurs. Just beat Monaco 4-0 in the away leg in Champions League quarter finals. Out of all the tactics I have used so far (even Black Pearl) - this is looking the most promising. I like the balance between attack and defence meaning that you can use for both home and away ties, irrespective of being favourite or not. The closing down the game change is genius. Only conceded one goal so far. But it didn't matter as I was 3-1 up away at the Emirates so it was merely a consolation goal for the gunners. How important are the central midfield attacking roles? I have my BWM sorted, but my other options prefer the (AP) roles. Do these need to be BBM's? Great tactic. Will keep you updated on its sustainability!
  13. Hi guys Throughout the last few years, my successful campaigns on FM and FMM have always been predicated on the flexibility of my teams to change tactics mid match when things aren't working. So for example, I would have my A tactic of say a wide 4-2-3-1 and if at half time/ 60 mins it was plainly obvious that I was being out-managed by the AI (I the Pochettino to the AI's Allegri) then I would change to my B tactic of a narrow 4-3-1-2. I would say that, without exaggeration, I would turn the game around in my favour 9 times out of 10. Yes, that high a ratio. With that in mind I was wondering if any of you have a 2 tactic regime for match day? At the moment I am doing well with Black Pearl, but if things aren't happening then my Plan B tactics are simply not doing the business. Any recommendations or your own experiences would be greatly appreciated!
  14. Hi guys - it seems that the new update has made winning trophies even harder. Is it just me or is maintaining a consistent and winning tactic now a thing of the past? Just wondering which on this forum are still performing - or have they all been thrown under the bus with the previous version? Two which seem to still be doing ok for me (albeit harder to beat the AI) are Jack goes Giant Killing and the 442 Heavy Metal. Or are we all coming up with new tactics for the new update? Cheers!
  15. Sadly hasn't worked for my Hull side over a ten game period. The attacking options are good, however the one DC is often exposed, which ultimately leads to giving away too many soft goals. If one had a truly world class CB (CA 160+) then this may work, but not for me sadly. Thanks for the tactic, which could work well for top attacking teams with an impenetrable back 3. For me the 4-2-4 is still the most consistent, However, it's only 7/10 in rating for me. I still can't find that killer/ diablo/ unbeatable tactic yet...
