    This was a god tactic until a recent update and now it is useless unfortunately. I hate when FM does this :(

    whats the best "Set Match Plan" for this tactic
  • dioga's avatar
    why this is not working with me draw with valencia , i lost to espanyol and 3-0 to real madrid at my home (im playing with Atletico Madrid)
  • Chresinho's avatar
    Dont know what has happened couldn't download it so had to copy it and lost 6 games in a row with it not sure whata going on

    On my third season with Everton. I had smash Valencia 8-0 in the Quarter final of C1 with this god tactic. I can't see why I will not able to win C1 cup again this year and the year after that. This tactic just way too OP.

    Thanks for the super tactic, I have it with Everton and win the PL cup and C1 cup in my 2 season. My two striker is moise kean and Calvert Lewin score 26 goal and 32 goal in that season what amazing tactics, The hard thing is I have to spend time to train player on wide midfield role, it hard to find one that suited. I have David Neres and Iwobi that work well for the wide midfield role

    Started using this recently with Newcastle about 2/3rds through 1st season after struggling to implement other ideas and it worked very well.

    In the WM position you need to look for WBs that can play in midfield I bought Vinagre from Wolves and Lazzari from Spal they have been good so far and are still learning the roles.

    Played 21 games with this tactic, won 15 and drew 6 with ACS Poli in Romania's Liga II and through to quarter finals of Romanian cup. And I'm still training players in the tactic's roles. Big ups to Knap.

    Playing this as Bari - 2nd season in Serie A after a few years getting promoted through the leagues - 13-1-1 since employing it.

    Haven't signed players or built a squad around it either - could be unbelievable curating a squad around this tactic

    I've used this tactic in the Italian Serie C with Piacenza and is working perfectly so far....right now im currently using it with Arsenal and im first in the EPL with an average of 3 goals scored a match...Aubameyang is the top striker!
  • badboysmokinaces's avatar
    Great home tactic. Winning well with Newcastle. Average 3 goals a game and usually 1-2 goals disallowed per game. Strikers don't score as many as I'd like but as long as someone is scoring then who cares.
    As an away tactic its not so good. Win 50/50 of my games but always seem to concede lots. Got beat 6-0 of Arsenal despite them only hitting the target 8 times. I suggest an alternative away tactic with this tactic as your home.
  • RTweddle's avatar
    Great tactic but I like to change WBs to inverted wing backs (support) and WMs wingers (support). I feel that it gets more on the attacking front especially with weaker teams without compromising the defence.

    Excellent tactic. Testing with Brighton and managed to win all pre-season games and also beat Chelsea 5-0 early in campaign. Trickiest part of this tactic is finding wide midfielders, if anyone knows of any decent ones please share
  • MrKarizzi's avatar
    Currently testing this with Blackburn. So far in 23 games 53 goals scored and only 9 conceded. One of the best tactics I used so far.
    Something noteworthy about this tactic is the immeasurable amount of disallowed goals. I don't know if there is a statistic in FM that counts these but I feel it is at least one per game, seriously. The strikers and opposite side winger are offside right after the long throw is taken and the pass usually goes to the centre of the box.

    PIs: one WB has sit narrower, the other doesn't, and the MCs have very different setups. was this down to the players you had, or what? also, OIs?
  • xotoy's avatar
  • Magic1111's avatar
    Is it possible to play the tactic with two Inside Forward or Winger instead the both Wide Midfielder? Or is this not recommended?
    I ask, because I don´t have suitable players for the WM role.....
  • nedbenson100's avatar
    This tactic is outrageous, currently managing Bradford City in league 2, beat leeds 6-1 and sheff weds 3-1 in pre-season and won all 4 games so far scoring 16 and conceding 1. Obviously early days but WOW.
