Knap Tactics FAQ

Which is the best Knap tactic?

That depends on a lot of factors. Top clubs should be able to use all tactics. Can also use a Top or Sub-Top for home matches, and an Underdog tactic for away matches.

What opposition instruction (OI) does Knap use?

None. Under staff responsibilities, ensure that you are in charge, not the Assistant to stop him adding them. OI can modifiy the intended behaviour of the tactic.
