Football Manager 2019 Tactics - Guru's Ultimate 4231 - Jesus take the Volante !


Firstly, you should know that even if the tactic was tested with great success on lesser & bigger teams, it might not work with yours depending on the players you have as it is still FM & football


Solide defense & strong offense, that's the motto behind this tactique. As you will see soon enough while playing it, the goals come from anywhere ! Basically anyone is prone to scoring a couple each game. The drawback from that is that you might not have a striker with 80+ goals / season, but a strong forward will still be able to get 1/game on average. Add the that the throw-ins & the corners and you'll have the ability to turn anyone on your team into a 15+ goals/season wonder, regardless of their position on the pitch

There are no OIs involved (I don't use them, but of course, feel free to do so )


Most of the player profiles to look for are pretty standard. There are a few things you should look for however.

Volante : The trickiest for the end. You can actually play various types of players as Volante (pretty much any CM actually) more physique oriented ones, or more technical players, or even more defensive. There are a few key attributes in my opinion to make it work in this tactic. The two most important to me are Work Rate & Tackling. If a decent 12+ Tackling will do, you might wanna look for 15+ Work Rate. After that, obviously, stamina is a big part of the player & his passing, vision will have a lot to do with his performances. Bonus if he’s good at long shots.


Corners are setup short, make sure that no one is setup as a corner taker for extra efficiancy

    Hi Guru, your tactics are very cool, I take 1st place in the local league now, but how do I get rid of a lot of yellow cards in games?

    Hello @matias882 , did you have enough friendlies in pre-season to have a good tactic familiarity at the start of the season ? Maybe you tweak the tactic during the games perhaps ?

    As you can see, I wouldn't qualify these results as "disastrous" by any means... and that's letting my ass man do the entire season, so relatively subpar.

    this tactic is disastrous for the Wolves themselves, and no pleasure in the game
