Inspired by Diego Simeone I have created the 4-4-1-1 / 4-4-2 tactic for Football Manager 2015.

FM 2015 Tactics - Diego Simeone 4-4-1-1
Diego Pablo Simeone (born 28 April 1970), also known as Cholo, is an Argentine football manager and former player. He is currently the manager of Spanish La Liga club Atlético de Madrid.

Simeone was capped over 100 times for the Argentina national football team and represented the country at the 1994, 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups. In his club career that started in 1987, Simeone played for Vélez Sarsfield, Pisa, Sevilla, Atlético Madrid, Internazionale, Lazio and Racing. Throughout his playing career, Simeone was known to be a tenacious and complete two-way midfielder, who was capable both of winning balls and starting attacking plays, also scoring goals himself. He was primarily known for his leadership, technique, tactical versatility, intelligence, strength, stamina, and workrate,[2] although he was also praised by pundits for his vision and passing range.

    Killer tactic especially for away games against bigger teams. My VFB Stuttgart destroyed the mighty Bayern Munchen 4-0 away.

    Is this the same tactic as this one? If it is, it brought much of a successes for me.

    If you set your wingers and Wing/Fullbacks to 'Mark tighter' and maybe 'Close down more' on both or just the wing backs they mark the opposition and stays close to them when the opposition get's the ball. Also with the 'Sit narrower' instruction' your team will be compact and follows like a "block" from side to side like Simeone's Atletico (Often the whole team is on one side when defending the flanks). Thanks for your input, nice to have this discussion :).

    Cheers, Jat

    Jat, I agree with you, but most of my goals come from the wings. Play narrow in FM2015, at leats in my version doesn't work, as it is pratically impossible to don't take goals from the wings. -_-. It's amazing. They always score using crosses. But you are free to test the tactic with this instructions and tell me. Thanks Jat.

    Although I can't argue with your results, seems like a good tactic :). I can argue with your "Simeone replica". Simeone's Atletico plays very narrow and tight, that's because they want to "force" the opposition wide in the so called "dead zone" and then they often double mark the opposition on the wing. So from my standpoint you can change your team instructions to 'play narrower' and 'Exploit the flanks'. I haven't checked your player instructions but Atletico as of season 2013-2014 did play the most amount of long passes in the LIGA BBVA and averaged under 50% possession. In other words Simeone's Atletico want to control the spaces rather than the tempo and ball-possession...

    It's a good tactic :) Don't get me wrong, I just want to share my views and knowledge with you :D. It's YOUR tactic, this was just some general tips..

    Cheers, Jat
