The Liverpool 'Boot Room' created an impressively long-lasting and consistent series of teams that dominated the European Cup for 8 years and launched a period of English dominance in Europe. This spanned a series of managers, although Bob Paisely was the most successful.

The Liverpool Boot Room was a room at Anfield, home of Liverpool F.C., during the 1960s - early 1990s where the coaching staff would sit, drink, and discuss the team, tactics and ways of defeating the next opposing side.

I'm currently using this to a somewhat mid-tier team (In Liga Adelante) The tactic shows some sting but you need to have a lot of opposition instructions and you also need these shouts retain possession, work ball into box, play out of defense and hassle opponents.

@ Inferno , This Tactic is ultra Attacking version Overload so u need exelent Defender because they need to press all the pitch so if u play with lower team i dont think will work .. Because needs better player to work best .. I made it for stronger teams . If u have Strong team already then just take a look to ur defender and reduce closing down ..

So far with this tactic I managed to get 8 wins 4 draws and 2 losses. My only problem is that I only managed to get 2 clean sheets from 14 games and it was against Wigan and Sporting. Any advice?

Ok say I got in and thought I'd test the tactic out...This was the first game of the season.

@CookieMaker: I recommend using the lightshot app to take screenshots. They can be in proper size and with an optimized extension (NOT png) this way. Easier to crop and upload, and faster loading for pictures.

@rusty442: Yeah it is and he scored 27 Goals , and i was shocked i signed him as backup and he proved me wrong.



Sometimes when is tough opossition i use lot of Opposition instruction but the tactic is based on havvy attcking and maybe for strongs and medium teams , i have not test it with lower teams .

rusty4422013-06-14 12:24
My god, is that Carlton Cole upfront??

Also how do you adapt for away games? Tougher opposition? Do you keep everything the same?

Going to test this out when I get in from work.
