Football Manager 2018 Tactics - Goal Scoring Machine FM18 Tactic
First time uploading a tactic here.

This is a tactic I've been using on my Football Manager 2018 save for 4/5 seasons.

First season at West ham I didn't use it at all, so I had no instant success. I won the Premier League on the 4th season.

Moved to Bayern in the 5th season and the amount of goals I scored in one season is ridiculous (see below).

I'm not sure if it's overpowered or if it's just the fact that I had the right players. To be fair, Bayern is full of top quality players though.

If you test this tactic, please let me know in the comments if it works for you or not.

I'd rarely use OI, and if I do it'd be if the team seems to be struggling; I'd let the assistant do them.

This tactic requires a team with a decent work rate, 12+ is recommended. When in big games or playing against 2 strikers I'd change from slightly higher to deeper.

If I've missed anything let me know and i'll try get back to you!

    This is absolutely brutal tactic bro! I have played with real madrid for two seasons and couldn't reach the true potential of the team. But by using this tactic i won all competitions and break some records. Thank you for your share!

    @LLovely i think you're missing the point here pal. This is a tactic forum, some people prefer downloading other people's tactics if they can't get their own to work. Some people are just curious. That's the entire point of this forum.

    Playing three upfront is a "cheat" tactic in fm. the cpu can´t handle it because no team in the world plays like that .

    No point in playing with it you will most of the games just because you use this cheat tactic

    @psychotic this entire tactic was a mid game making tactic because i kept struggling hard against chelsea, made it whilst i was 2-0 down in the second half and managed to win the game, the tactic defiantly works best against the lone striker, if a team counter attacks you often try changing slightly higher to deeper, and it might ease them, it struggles hard vs 442. Appreciate the review though man! let me know if you have any further success with it:)

    Worked well for me in the German 3. Liga, won promotion with a team destined for relegation while using this tactic about 30% of the time. I had some pretty nice comeback wins with it, so I often switched to it when the match wasn't going well. It wasn't even as leaky in the back as I first expected, so that was a nice surprise.

    In my experience, it seems to work best when the opponent can't effectively counter-attack and/or they have just one striker. It has trouble taking care of two fast strikers receiving passes into space, making it very vulnerable to Neville Wears Prada and similar tactics.

    Just tested 1 game with my Milan save (5 seasons in) in the league and won 7-1. Will try it for the whole season and see how that goes. Thanks for the tactic!
