Knap Tactics for FM20 - FM20 Tactics by Knap: LOOK AWAY
Look Away is like a less adventurous Beowulf. It's attacking, fast and direct but has no set playmaker. It aims to get the ball to the final third as quickly as possible.

The DM and IWB are there to make your defence more compact. The standard DL means it's not completely gegenpress, its more cautious to the counter attack.

Your key player may be the CM. He is the only one actively seeking runs to cause problems for the opposition defence.

Your two strikers must be good enough to hold the ball up for oncoming wingers and CM.

This can be classed as an away team tactic because it's "safe". It's trying to attack without the risks. A smash and grab type of tactic if you like.
If you're using other Knap tactics, this could be a good option for away matches.
Also if you're OK with a draw, e.g. 2nd leg in UCL playoffs sort of situation, that's a good tactic to go with.

Look Away is similar to Roll Over Beethoven and others which are quick and fast but more risky.

Who plays like this: Maybe Sheffield United or Everton

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.

LOOK AWAY - FM20 Tactic by Knap

"Look Away" 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.


Look Away should be suitable to sub-top teams or as an away tactic, as it's attacking without the risks.


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. :)
