FM 2015 Tactics - Sacuri's Spearhead
Hey guys, this is the first Tactic I submit to the site, with it being particularly effective for me I felt inspired to submit it, so here it is the almighty SPEARHEAD!

First of all, I'll need you guys to understand one thing, I used this on my Inter save in the year 2020, with some really good wonderkids so it might not work for everyone, but I think the succesfullness of this tactic is something everyone aims to achieve, since it won pretty much everything possible that year for me.

So how does it work?

Simple, the ball winning mid aims to recover as many balls as possible, looks to pass it into space for the flanks (wingers) to run and hit the cross into the box early for the target man to finish it, simple right? Well, it is.

It plays quite fluidly, and it's very offensive so it's not a tactic you'd use if you're managing Crystal Palace and you're off to play at the Etihad Stadium against last Seasons Title winners... Just keep that in mind.

The Tactics name is given due to the formation looking like the tip of a Spearhead, those very sharp things made of steel. And at the very top, the Striker is the most important role of all; therefore his stats should be quite impressive for this to be effective.

Let's take a look at my world-renown golden shoe winning Strikers stats for example:

As you can see with 17 finishing, 16 heading, 16 first touch, 16 off the ball, 16 acceleration & pace he is quite the monster forward. He's scored 65 competitive Goals for me this season, he was basically coming off the bench to score at least one Goal or starting the full 90 minutes to net in 2-3 Goals per game. You should be looking to sign a player that can really finalize any type of play, be it a ball in the air, a through ball into space or a counter attack with open space.

The wingers are the 2nd most important players in this tactic, you'll want players like Griezmann and such that have good crossing, dribbling, first touch, passing pace etc.

I'll show you guys some of my results with this tactic now:

Well that's all, I hope this tactic helps out as many people as it did for me on my save, I didn't find this years football manager to be so complex on the tactical side - or maybe it's because it's Beta but one thing is for sure, sticking to basics has gotten the job done for me ;) God Bless.

EDIT: As of now the file download is in .fmf format, and it's gone through some drastic changes therefore it may not work as it would before the 15.3.2. patch (which basically revamped and changed alot of match engine perks), if you could leave feedback in the comment section I will take the constructive criticism to keep editing the tactic until it's perfect once again, thank you.

    You might have the .fmf-file in your tactics-folder. See this.
    Could someone please upload screenshots of the player roles and the PI's. Thanks.

  • Icarus's avatar
    The site I used to host the download was down momentarily, but I've told Stam so he should move the download link soon and repair it ^^
  • tkny212's avatar
    Is it just me or link is broken?
    i can not download it.
  • Icarus's avatar
    @zag it might be because Balotellis low work rate doesn't suit a TM role, Sturridge on the other hand might be missing the headers :P it's mostly about crossing with the wingers.

    @nick not really, it's meant to be used with very efficient sides, something for the Champions League-regulars if you know what I mean.

    Is This tactic succesfull to lower leagues....for example i eant to find a tactic to PAOK from greek this good?
  • zagarpat88's avatar
    A good tactic for winning games but after 10 games and 8 wins Sturridge and Balotelli have 3 goals between them. Sterling and Bakkali banging them in though.
