Football Manager 2020 Tactics - Tellak's Tiki Taka for FM20 // Overpowered Possession Tactic
I started a new FM20 save with Viitorul Constanta - as usual - and tested for an entire season. In fact I replayed the same season twice to apply the necessary tweaks and ensure the tactic works great. With Viitorul I have won all the games in the repeat season (check screenshots below).

It's important to understand that you might need at least 6 months for the players to really get into the tactic; even for Barca this tactic is a bit extreme.

This is the successor of my tiki-taka tactic for FM15.


Some Tips

Very Important: The MCR should be the one executing the corners and free kicks; if the he doesn't, the set pieces fall apart.

For the inside forwards you need players with opposite preferred foot to their position.

You must have players with good anticipation, composure, concentration, decisions, off the ball, teamwork and work rate. "Good" is relative to how good the opposition teams are, but usually 14+ is excellent. Passing is important just for players who will make through passes, basically the MCR (your playmaker).

It's recommended to have players with 2 specific player traits: "plays one two" and "comes deep to the ball". If your players don't have these, you should train them for that. The central defenders don't need these though.
Also the MCR (playmaker) will benefit from having the "dictates tempo" PPM.

For team-talks I usually go with a passionate approach, but if you have a good assistant manager let him handle it.
No need for opposition instruction.

Training:
I set general training to be handled by the assistant manager, while I handle the individual training.

    Seems kinda fake, unless you're master at setting the opposition instructions. With the current engine this tactic is good but is exploited by the AI with long shots... ~ 2 per game for my 2 season attempt with Astra.

    Tried this tactic for 25 league games with Leicester. won 9 drew 2 and lost 14. Have conceded the third most goals in the league (42). We don't even top the charts in possession, only averaged 56%. In short this tactic ships a lot of goals, doesn't win enough and definitely doesn't overpower in possession. I wouldn't recommend this tactic.

    Love the football they play going forward with this. Other possession tactics involve lots of passing, work it wide then throw it into the box, which seems silly. Problem I've found with this so far is that teams win the ball back then lob it over the high line. Have conceded a lot of goals this way. Hopefully they learn how to defend using this tactic. Have only played about 6 games so far.

    Just started this tactic coming into December so not all of the squad fits but drawn 3 one 1 will purchase a IF or two as goals have been low will keep you updated .

    @jdickinson: We've been copyright files (in general, not just this one) to an additional download server for about 1 hour. It should be fine now.
