Knap Tactics for FM20 - FM20 Tactics by Knap: BAD COMPANY
This is an elite gegenpress tactic for FM2020; short passing, extremely high tempo, heavy metal football. Think of Dortmund or Liverpool.

It has huge demands of the players. Physically as it is gegenpress but also technically as it has the highest tempo setting possible.

It also defends narrow, so there will be a lot of space on the sides, making it more vulnerable defensively.

This tactic creates overload on the right hand side. The attacking mezzala drifting out to the right allows the right winger to push up and support the ST. Overlaps both but overload on the right side.

Player Requirements

You'll primarily need players who are pacey and physical all-around. Mental stats are also adviced to make the right choices in split-second moments in-match. Attacking full backs are key.

Knap has been creating Football Manager tactics since FM 2008. Knap tactics have raked up thousands and thousands of downloads because of his constant testing and tweaking throughout updates of Football Manager, making Knap one of the best tactic creators in the community.
This year he is back with more than 20 tactic systems! We aim to present them all here at FM Scout, and welcome you to test them out and give us feedback in the forum.

BAD COMPANY - FM20 Tactic by Knap

"Bad Company" is a single tactic and not a set of tactics, which is a bit uncommon. Created for the latest 20.4.0 version of the Match Engine.


Bad Company should be more suitable to a top team, because it has high demands from players, both physically and technically.


Most of the text above is written by Rober and RDF Tactics. They are the driving force behind our effort to bring you Knap Tactics in a way that does justice to his work.

At the same time we aim to making it easier for the community to familiarize with all the different variations and the relevant sets, because keeping up with his creations and figuring out all the what / where / why can be overwhelming.

Thanks to Knap for the kind permission to share his work on FM Scout. :)
