FM 2014 Tactics - Coming Home 5-2-3


Complete wing backs - these need to be attack minded i.e Shaw, Baines, Walker

Central midfielders - Strong powerful work horse i.e Toure, Martinez, partnered with two technical players i.e Wilshere, Gotze or 3 strong work horses.

Complete forward - strong, good in the air, finishing i.e Lambert, Lukaku

Advanced forward - Pace, finishing, technique i.e Osvaldo, Hernandez

It's important you spend time to build your squad to suit the tactic.

Team talks

Teams talks are an absolutely important part of the game that many people disregard due to laziness, therefore I highly recommend you do them manually.

I always use assertive unless I'm being aggressive.

If you won your previous game - Carry on from where we left of

Home any/away easy - I expect a win / do it for the fans

Hard away games - Play without pressure / carry on from where we left of (if you won previous game)

HT/FT talks are common sense depending on the circumstances.


Prior to the season starting do tactics/very high and alternate each week with team cohesion/very high.

When season starts do balanced/average, and allow rest before and after games

Match training
I always use defensive positioning regardless of opposition.


Have Fun

    If you want your tactic to be tested you have to do it with smaller teams and of course without cheating.
