This is a Frank Lampard style gegenpress tactic for FM 2020 by FMWonderkids. Similar to how Chelsea play irl. I support them and wanted my team to play like that.

Football Manager 2020 Tactics - Lampard's Gegenpress 4-1-4-1 // FM20 Tactic
I came up with this tactic mainly because I support Chelsea & wanted my teams to play like them.

The players/teams that are best suited to this would be teams with young players with good work rate, teamwork, determination.

Lampard's Chelsea play gegenpress which requires a lot of energy, energy mainly from his young players.

In terms of training & opposition instructions I leave that to my assistant manager or my best coach.

1-0 down? Change the mentality to Attacking and tell them to push forward.

I never change any player instructions, team instructions or roles in game. I leave the tactic the way it is.

    I'll change my review on it, it's pretty good. Not a win-it-all tactic, but a really nice one nonetheless.

    I'm having a pretty bad experience with it with Marseille. With preseason, I'm at 11 games, 3W, 3L, I conceed goals at every games and I don't really score much

    This tactic is amazing. If you dont have a target man u can use Pressing forward on attack duty too, or if u want to sub/injury your main striker. My results was very good,.The defense look a bit not so good, maybe because i play currently with Birmingham and the defends suck. Although the attack part its so cool, i like the way the team play and defend. On 11 games i have 9wins 1draw and 1defeat and 4clean sheets.

    For me this tactic doesn't work at all with Chelsea.

    True but he'd play Jorginho or Kante(sometimes both) as holding midfielders with Kovacic or Mount the other midfielder. Yesterday against Everton he played Kante and Kovacic holding with Mount further forward. In my tactic that would be Kante DM, Kovacic & Mount the other 2.

    Yeah, the mostly play a hybrid 4-3-3/4-2-3-1

    Also be careful when playing against a very "up for it" Everton.

    i like the tactic but Lampard's Chelsea have mainly been playing in a 4231 only really played in a 4141 vs city Liverpool Ajex Valencia away. Also i don't think chelsea have been using bpd's they haven't really been making many long balls they play it short basically all the time so i think they should be cb's.
