Football Manager 2020 Tactics - 4-2-3-1 ATTACK 2.1 TOP for FM20 by ZION
Sorry for being late, but this year I have found a lot of changes; more then ever because my team is composed of very young talent (18-23).

I don't know if this is really the case, but this year this game seems more competitive.

Anyway, very simple, still we have the 4-2-3-1 offensive tactic.


I send you directly to the description from last year. Best advice for this version is to have - obviously - great team harmony, high morale and familiarity with the tactic. Once these points are reached, the team will play fluidly.

    This tactic is broken. Even if u got strong players, u will miss a lot, too much to win your games. If u win, it will be always 2-1 or 1-0 not more.

    This tactic is clearly outdated unfortunately.

    I was trying this tactic with few teams. This tactic is shit and dosent work anywhere.
  • sjel's avatar
    less shots and less possession than other team, how can i revert that?
  • PancioMateo90's avatar
    Hey there. It is a good tactic?
  • anak85's avatar
    Ok, if anyone is interested.

    I did two changes which seem to have helped a lot!

    I stepped back the "Attack" mentality to "Positive" as mentioned above by ZION.

    The line of engagement and the back line were both pushed backwards 2 steps. Also not preventing the goal keeper from distributing.

    I only had 1-2 balls over the top in the past 3 games but still feel I am getting enough press and winning back the ball.

    hey there, I am getting a LOT of goals over the top. Seems like the opposition has at least 4-5 one on ones with my keeper each match. Any pointers for me?
  • sjel's avatar
    nvm, i found it.
  • sjel's avatar
    training is the same? cus i cant find match preview :/.

    dears everyone, obviusly there are some terms for a tact to work. cohesion, kind of players, and others. if i play vs Barcelona, i dont left offensive module. i put positive or balance, and put pressing and marking on opponents. you cant put up a tactic and and just play

    Started using this tactic in my very first career in FM 2020 and so far it goes very well. I'm in november 2019 and my Red Bull Salzburg won all of the league games (except of one that ended with a goalless draw) and Austrian Cup games. So far we've played three games in Champions league winning 2:0 against Zenit, losing 3:4 against Lille and drawing 2:2 against Napoli. So far so good

    Almost lose my job in Seria A with Fiorentina, change this tactic with my tactic :P

    Have tested this tactic in division 1 norra in Sweden. Works great, had some trouble with team cohesion at the start but with a few signings im smashing even after promotions.
  • valyp's avatar
    8 wins and 2 draws in 10 games, with a young team.
  • piot07's avatar
