Football Manager 2017 Tactics - Giant Killa 4-2-3-1
Welcome everyone,

It's Geotimshu here with my first ever tactic upload! Have been quietly playing FM for 7 years now! Haven't shared before, but after 2 seasons with Brentford, I knew I had to share this tactic with the world.

This tactic is about ball domination with built-in risk. Combining high possession with creativity, flair and ultimately chance creation! Winning the ball back through work-rate based press, yet still remaining in good shape and structure results in strong defensive performances! This philosophy runs as a core through both the Home and Away tactic yet executes differently depending on the system.

As previously highlighted, this tactic consists of both a Home and Away.

This approach to football requires a balance of ball control & athleticism!
I want youngsters coming through the club to have complete control and technique with a football therefore I had U18 + Reserves general training always set to Ball Control (average intensity, a days rest after the game).

General Training set to Fitness (average intensity) with match training set to maximum on Match Tactics! No day off!
If you have more than 3 new squad members set general to Team Cohesion.
I won't touch training again until tactics are at least accomplished!

Won the EFL Championship first year with Brentford (with next to nothing spent). First season in Premier League, I took Brentford to a 8th place finish defying all expectations!

    Hey guys,
    Reserves + U18's, match first team tactics.
    OIs, they're not essential. I assign them to assistant providing his tactical knowledge is 12+

    Question.. When it comes to reserves and U18 do u have them set for main squad tactics so whenever main squad uses the home tactic and Reserve and U18s have games they use whatever tactic home squad is set
