New FM, new players, new roles and features; but the basics is basics within the game. I am not a huge fun of this classic formation, I am more a classic 442 (do you remember my Oedipus Tactic in FM20?).
Anyway, BETA is out and so I decided to mess around with tactics while waiting the official release to start my long term and only one save; as always. Starting from the bottom to the top.
So, in tactic now. Tried to simulate what Klopp is doing and why Liverpool is one the most powerful teams inside the game. This time, not for any top side, but making one which works very good for underdog.
Under current ME (match engine) there is an issue with IF roles which for my disappointment; didn't let me choose it for the flanks. Instead, I choose a Winger with Wing Back Support (which will help Winger in transition phase).
Another issue is defending corners. After multiple tests, decided to see what Liverpool is doing and be always the team with least goals against from Set Pieces. Yes, I am aware that defenders don't jump during defending corners; let's hope SI fix this.
The answer was clear. Zone Marking working better from Man Marking.
Crystal Palace: Why? Simple. In all my tests (simulation & playing), Crystal Palace always finished in relegation zone to see next year Championship. I decided to give it a go and how they react - finish.
So, we did it as you can see in the results!
I have run it 3 times, do avoid some randomness and see the median between the tests.
Version One of this tactic is here!
About training: Yes, I will make one when official release will be out to help you, with that side of the game. Stay tuned!
Hope you gonna use it and let me know how did performance for you!
