Knap Tactics for FM21 - FM21 Tactics by Knap: BLACK ECHO
Very slow tempo and short passing tactic, good for the lesser teams (less technical). Most Black Echo variations are safe for underdogs.

It does exactly what the Team Instructions ask.

Out of possession it is gegenpress, but in possession its holds the ball and slows tempo.
It's safe in possession with good off the ball movements. The Attacking Mids are aggressive.

If anything, Black Echo is a less direct tactic, which is uncommon for Knap on this Match Engine version. However, the "pass into space" having a DLP, it still takes lots of risk in possession.

Solid defensively, won't concede many goals.

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 30 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.

What's included in the BLACK ECHO Bundle of FM21 Tactics

You will find 4 variations of Black Echo Tactics inside this bundle. They all apply to 21.4 Match Engine version.

  • FM21.7 BLACK ECHOE 3421 P103

  • FM21.7 BLACK ECHOE 4411 P104 FA

Black Echo should be more suitable to an underdog team, because it's very slow tempo and safer in possession.
