Knap Tactics for FM20 - FM20 Tactics by Knap: PREACHIN' BLUES
Preachin' Blues is a demanding tactic. Mainly suitable to elite teams as there are only forr Team Instructions in possession! Also highly demanding player roles in CWBs, and IFWs.

Leave the players every opportunity they get to use their skills, and not be locked by any system.

The central forward stretches the line, and the side forwards cut inside. The central midfielder will arrive late into the box while the mezzala creates. This makes for many possible triangles and good passing combinations.

Top teams who have quality defenders with sufficient pace and all-around skills will defend fine, while lesser teams will struggle with through balls behind the defensive line and 2 vs 1 situations.

Who plays like this: Juventus

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.

    They just don't work. I barely can retain possession, even against small teams playing at home (and I'm playing with an over boosted Chelsea).
