  1. This tactic has won myself the premiership(and currently running away with this one)as well as back to back Champions league with Charlton within a short space of time.Some of the players are bosmans and not all are internationals but combined with the training regime of "genpressing(jurgenkloppstyyle"(which is in vibe community fmm2017) I probably have achieved the impossible.I tweak the tactics so if my opponents play an attacking 4-4-2 I pull my cm and bwm into the dmc position. If my opponents play a narrow diamond I switch to both flanks. If I am finding it hard to break a team down or the weather is gusty i change from passing mixed to passing short..Only once this season have I resorted to attacking/short when I was getting beat off arsenal away. My inside forwards need good shooting,movement and pace as well as my poacher and I use full backs for defensive strength. Zaha is an example of what is capable with this tactic.I also only sign players with a high decision stat as intelligence is for me a mandatory requirement.
  2. Hello guys, I´m just winning everything.
  3. So after taking a look at my original Bournemouth save I realised my mistakes... Probably the biggest I made was selling my star striker, and then trying to force wingers with poor shooting to play as IF's. So after some analysis I decided to start a new save and actually use my brain... After a slow start which brought 3 draws and a loss from my first 4 league games ( 3 of the 4 were title challengers to be fair ) I set about moving up the league. The Tactics/Formation ( Please ignore which players are in which positions as this is from my second season as I forget to photograph the formation at the start of season 1) As you can see below I had my heart set on a 4-3-3 as I see this as a perfect formation, very balanced in both attacking and defensive areas of the pitch. I chose to play with full backs instead of wing backs as I feel too exposed and, with a weaker defence, I thought the risk was far greater than the reward. Some may view playing a BPD in a lower team as a risk but the signing I made for that position had perfect stats to fulfill that role. A deep playmaker to dictate the flow of the game, central midfielder to assist in both attacking and defensive aspects and an advanced playmaker to provide that creative spark. Wingers who have pace and dribbling and have that direct style of play to take the game to the opposition and the striker which in my oppinion was the most vital part of the team, I ran poacher as they find themselves in the perfect positions as reflected in the stats which I will talk about later. As for team instructions, they went as follows: I find that playing attacking without joining it with direct passing or committed tackling affects your teams outlook when they have the ball better, it makes the wingers look to get on the fullback and the poacher to hang in between those centre backs waiting for that through ball. The only thing I changed was switching from attacking to balanced when I wanted to see out the game and the opposition were starting to get a foothold. The Results As I said earlier, the start to the league season was mixed as we held our own against Chelsea and Arsenal but suffered against Liverpool. Results started to pick up through September and October... They continued in on the same vain with the odd 1-0 score line here and there... Then came our best performance of the season at white hart lane, it may only have finished 1-0 but the restrict Tottenham to virtually nothing proved we could handle big teams. As new year rolled in we hit a rough patch as we went 5 without a victory. Then as they say good things come to those who wait, 9 straight wins and a draw put us right up the table. We finished the season with mixed results. However we went above and beyond our expectations and finished an astounding second and boasted the second best defensive record in the league! Transfers/ Star Players As I stated earlier my mistake was selling this guy in my other save, but he sure showed me what he could do! Our defensive singing who made a massive impact... And the last signing we made was one for the future who played very well when given his chance considering he was 18... Overall I found this tactic perfect for a club where a mid table finish would be expected and one that had a few stand out players, it was balanced very well and with the right player could may we go above my personal achievements! Please note that I am in no way saying manage Bournemouth and you'll dominate Europe! But if your smart with your signings and adjust your tactics accordingly when you notice a shift in the game then I think this tactic could serve most average teams very well! Thankyou for reading
  4. Just completed a season unbeaten with United. This tactic has been slightly tweaked from a previous successful tactic, moving an attacking mid playmaker to the striker position as a trequartisa and seemed to work wonders. Also the United players seem very easy to retrain into striking positions. Trained Mata, lingard etc into striker roles within a season. Having problems getting ibra to sign another contract though... Got to try this out on lower league teams but I'm sure it'll work. Try to keep player roles the same. GK and CM's especially, CB's can be whatever really.
  5. I just bought a striker for 50 million (it's vincent aboubakar) and he's not doing good,the fans consider this a poor business and i don' t like it. I wonder if there's a tactic that can make him score a lot of goals?
  6. First a link http://vibe.community/forums/topic/38189-double-if-3232-dominate-with-underdog-team/ Hi guys - im going to try this amazing tactic out in FMH 17. Its from FMH 16 and it worked wonders. Credit is going out to the ones mentioned in the link.
  7. Hi, I had a tactic that was inconsistant, I wont delve into the tactic to much as thats not really the point, but its 4-4-1-1 counter, the key element seems to be the triangle in the middle, that consists of BWM BBM and the AP in front, I have also tried DLP instead of the BWM depends on the players I have available. Anyway what I do it play through the centre to my AP so that he can have maximum influence on the game and keep the defence solid. But I thought that that I had to adapt my tactic to who I was playing, so would sometimes assign Pressing or change the passing to Mixed if I felt that they where stronger than me in the middle... and it worked sometimes but I think it was actually the route of my inconsistancy. So now I start every game the same, counter and through the middle... then adapt once I see the line up (this is also due to the scout reports being generally wrong), that seems to make my tactic more consistant. Playing as Fulham I have won my first four games in the league, in the cup I have played my second / youth team as I want to concentrate on the league, beat Northampton 1 - 0 but then got knocked out by Chelsea 2 - 0 away, but considering it was my second / youth team it probably wasnt a bad result. So unless I go on a horrendous run it seems to be better not to change, if the AI seems to workout my tactics I will change the BWM to a DLP and see if that helps keep my tactic working. Ed
  8. Hi guys ....is it just me or is this a bit odd. Im not always using the same formation, yet this seems to happen all the time? Im wondering how come to setup for so many teams is 4222 and maybe someone in here have noticed the same and has the key ;)?
  9. Last year I used dlf with trequartista but it didn't work this year. I tried to find a different combination with 2 forwards and an inside forward. I used defensive forward this time and it work. Use players with at least 15 strength in defensive forward. Other than that, try to use players with more teamwork in df and p. I started with Karabükspor in Turkish League. Then moved to Stoke, Real Madrid and I spent my last 2 years in Manchester United. In my last year (as you see below) I got beaten only once in a year and won everything except EFL Cup.
  10. Hello everyone i was trying every Tactic to apply klopp style and I finally Got it. First you must have Good couches and training can change a player completely! Wing back and the deep playmaker on tactical training advanced playmaker on General inside forward and the striker on attacking here is the tactic and some results to proof And the training schedules good luck ?
  11. I would like to present my Great Tactic I call it La Grinta 4-1-2-2-1 The Engine in EME With La Grinta Tactic I found that my players really fight every game and you might notice that players will more than 7 easily. I tested the tactic in 3 seasons i have used this tactic in English Lower Leagues with a team Called Corby Town in my 1st season with Corby Town I ended up in 6th place which is not bad but I missed the playoff so the next year I decided to reach the playoff and I thought about playing in Defensive mentality with Counter Attack and It worked for me and I won the league Title which was Vanarama National League North and then promoted to Vanarama National League with the same tactic again I won the league title but of course I bought new players to help to do the job After the promotion now I'm playing in Sky Bet League Two so far so good. The tactic is very simple but you need the right players to make it work. You must focus on you midfield players and the two great wingers. The midfield players are the Key the better player the better results you can get. Check Out The Video La Grinta Tactic on YouTube DMC - Should be BWM with high tackling CM - AP and DLP ( Passing + Creativity + Teamwork + Positioning ) CF - TM should have a strength and aerial attributes + shooting + decision + Aggression. Hope you like the Tactic
  12. Took a while to develop; I went three seasons with Liverpool without winning anything. Last time I had a new FM game my first job as Liverpool manager was terminating Nathan Ecclestone's contract(!) so I think I was a bit out of touch. Since settling on this tactic and improving the playing staff, I've won two Premierships and a Champions League, and five domestic cups/cup winners' cups in three seasons. So it's a good formation, but not a game-breaker, which personally I like. I also just tried a branch-off game in season 7 where I moved to a 15th place Spanish side with poor players, and got off to a good start, so I don't think it's only for elite teams. The formation is as follows (my first choice Liverpool player underneath the position to demonstrate the type of player needed) INF CMF INF Inaki Williams Dybala Bale BBM BBM Saul DLM R. Sanches WBK CB Crisetig CB WBK Tadé van Dijk GK Gomez Bellerin Donnarumma Team Instructions Mentality: Attacking Everything else: Normal/mixed Pressing: Yes Offside Trap: Yes
  13. PriZe presents the Trident, a 343 EME Tactic Bench full of strikers and don't have a tactic for them? Want to go all out attack and score 3 goals per game? Look no further, the Trident is all you need! A small note, i didn't test this with a lower league club, you might not get similar results The tactic FMM 17 database is a godsgift to all striker aficionados, only issue? A tactic which get's the best out of the lads. So what to do? Build a solid 3-4-3 tactic! The player roles The front three. I went for a setup with two INF’s out wide, giving them the opportunity to dive in and confuse the opposition defence. After studying the match highlights i decide to put the central striker on Advanced forward. This way he can lead the attack, assist, and with this role being more versatile the strikers won’t clutter that much. The mid four The mid-four will balance the tactic out. You have an APM as an creative outlet, a BBM who is your jack of all trades and wingers who can help in attack and in defence. For the wingers i suggest you look for players who at least have 10 tackling. You can either use an Wing back who can play at midfield or look for players like bale who can defend as well. Back 3 Nothing spectacular, i would suggest looking for the more Ball Playing Defenders, have defenders with high pace and play the left CB with left foot and right CB with right foot. The instructions As with the PD21 tactic i decide to go balanced. It’s a great way to achieve plug ’N play. Mixed for passing and focus, as i believe the team has to be able to choose the right solution for every situation, and i don’t want them to get too restricted. After all they have 3 upfront, so i’ve a long ball is the way to go? Then hoof that ball upfront! All the rest is pretty self-explanatory. Important note, to get the most out of your central striker set him as your primary attacker, and to keep the midfield intelligent always set you APM as primary outlet. The results I guess it speaks for itself. 127 goals for the main strikers in their first season in one of the hardest leagues in the game. Some notable results Concluding As you can see, tactic works great with at least a big team. Hope you guys enjoy it. If you have any questions, need some help? Just let me know!
  14. This has been the tactic that I have been using for my 1k challenge . Although it has not produced the best results for my selected 1k-er player, it has worked wonders for most teams. The main tactic: Instructions: It works for most games. If your adversary does overpower you in midfield ( usually if they play 4-5-1 or 4-4-1-1 ) Then pull back the AP: If you do fall behind by 1 or 2 goals, you can also push the wings forward and change the team mentallity: Instructions: Results with my SLB team: These have been my League results for the past 5 seasons:
  15. I am playing with AC Milan (3rd season now). Start using this tactic very close to the end of 2nd season. Finished 2nd in the league, won Europe league and kick out in Italian cup. First season was devastating. Finished 8 in league and kick out of Italian cup. Forgot to take screenshots before starting new season. Sorry for that! If someone wants to try and report the results. Thanks! PS I will upload results from 3rd season soon.
  16. I'm hoping you guys can help tweak a tactic I'm toying with. I'm Man City and have a pretty decent squad, plus with good transfer budgets I thought it was a good opportunity to experiment. The aim is to be defensively solid, but with some free-flowing beautiful football. Tactical aims: IFs tuck in when attacking, drop wider when defending. WBs provide the width in attack, then make a back 5 when defending. BPD moves into the DM position when in possession to create a more traditional 1-2 midfield. DLF drops deeper to create space for IF runs. I've used Counter Attacking with an Attacking mentality as I want to try and replicate the style that Chelsea seem to be using under Conte. I want transitions to be quick and forward looking, but wanted to keep possession which is why I used Short passing rather than Direct. So far the results have been... well, not bad, but not quite what I was hoping for. Defensively it's been very solid and we are creating lots of chances each match, but the goals scored has been low; my strikers have been especially poor. Does anyone have any suggestions to tweak it further? Or is there some basic error that I've missed when setting it up? Let me know
  17. Been away for 2 years and had a pretty solid tactic for FMH 2015 so thought i give it a try making a new one. My first season with Fulham in The Championship league i used a pretty straight forward 4-2-2-2 with wingers. Did well and got promotion. During pre-season friendlies it felt a bit stale and I wanted to try something new so i reversed back to my old 2015 tactic which didnt work as well as i had hoped, until i moved the AMC Inside forward to the winger position. Started of with a 2-0 win against Man City so stuck to it and I had almost all the big teams beaten during the first half of the autumn. Lost 1-0 away to Liverpool but then i had gotten a red card also. Wasnt unbeaten and both lost and draw some games but ended up winning the Premiere league and the EFL cup with a pretty mediocre team compared to the big teams. The Poacher i used as Defensive forward at times when i wanted more pressure. I also mirrored the tactic every now and then letting Tom Cairney play as the right Inside forward. Now to start the second season in Premiere league and with some better players it should work even better.
  18. Hello fellow vibers i have been struggeling to find the time for the game this year, but i finally got some and comes time comes tactics... Last year, as some of you know, some of us tried to create a 433. We didnt succeed. This year i need your help. The strenght of tactic, is that its on solid defence. The main goals comes from the quick IFs on both sides mainly and it tends to do good against stronger opponents. The weakness ( it scores way to few goals, and i know some of you outhere got great ideas, so what do you think i could change, having in mind that im leading the leagues with teams like Hertha, West Ham and Lazio in the first season? im looking forward to your input and thanks to Mike for reminding me that we did NOT succeed in 2016 with the 433, now we HAVE too best regards Anders
  19. Introduction Hi guys. Been away for a while, had some problems but 2 months and 1 new phone later I have returned. I am aiming to get a 1kc+ done again this year so have been looking at tactics for a main striker. Though, witgout the brazilian league, I'll likely never match the 2kc I did last year. My first action will be to post my first tactic thread in a while, so here it goes. I decided to ease my way back into the game with a nice easy celtic career. I love playing as celtic. Formation and Roles I wanted to create a new tactic totally from scratch so I tinkered around a bit and came up with this. Now this does seem risky with only 1 center half and wing backs but there is backup from the BWM. The DLP also sits back and provides some defensive duties as well as the BBM racing back and forwards also doing some tackling. After some trial and error early in season 1 I realized that CF works best up front as he scores as well as providing for the IFs who are cutting infield. Instructions I used the following instructions pretty much from day 1 and added the primary outlet/attacker roles mid way through season 1. The central play seems obvious with the only width coming from the wing backs and with both the creative and attacking players playing centralised roles or cutting inside to the centre. I always set the DPM as primary outlet and CF as primary attacker. Results Now I will say that results aren't necessarily stellar for this team and league but they are solid in all competitions and against all opposition. These results are across 2.5 seasons so far. So we're looking at over 2 goals per game scored and under 1 conceded on average. Also very few losses as is expected with celtic. As expected all domestic titles were won however season 2 brought a champions league title with the formation holding up well against stronger teams like Milan, Schalke, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. The striker also does pretty well Dembele played as top man for season 1 and 2 but was out 4 months in season 2 averaging almost a goal a game whilst often displaying the "slightly tired" remark. Third season began well so far with Zack Clough replacing Dembele On top of that my backup striker Leighton Griffiths is doing well too. Son what do you guys think? Anything else you'd like to see? Also any testers?
  20. BatiGoal's T.K.O. Tactical Knock Out 2-2-1-5 Formation for EME Before you're going to comment based on your first impression (which I know looks absolutely terrible) please give me a chance to explain, and defend, the craziness up here. Doing my 1KC (scoring 1000 goals) I used this formation for the final 11 seasons of a 16-season career. So it's a pretty well-tested formation and I can say that with the right players it's deadly... at both ends of the pitch It derived from the original 1-2-7 formation that was used during the earliest football days back in the 1860s-1870s. That particular one had zero chance of succeeding in FMM, but with a bit of imagination, tweaks and tests this 2-2-1-5 T.K.O. ('T-shaped' formation) came to life. T.K.O. is a boxing term that stands for Technical Knock Out but my T.K.O. stands for Tactical Knock Out since the idea is to tactically overwhelm the opponent and knock them out with all the attacking prowess up front before they find a working remedy to counter it. Simply put, the idea is to outscore the opponent. It works for a team with top players. I need the best up front in order to create and score otherwise you're just going to be outscored at the other end. I have tried this tactic with smaller teams but that didn't go very well. I'll look for a 'sister' formation with a similar effect for small teams but pls feel free to tweak or test yourself with any team. Let me know how it goes and I'll offer advice and help with tweaks where needed. Main Formation Player Roles and Match Settings Goals will definitely fall at both ends but I managed to minimize the damage at the back in order to give my 5 forwards enough leverage to score 1 more goal than the opponent does. It's not waterproof and you won't win every game. There's bound to be some heavy losses as well from time to time but there shouldn't be too many. I do manage to outscore opponents on a consistent basis using just a balanced mentality as the formation is set up in a pretty attacking way as it is. Going att. mentality will just make this formation leakier and not add that much more to the attack. Short passing works best with worldclass players who thrive on possession to create and score goals. Alternative Formation Player Roles and Match Settings If the main formation fails or isn't as effective as you'd hoped for then try these alternative settings. CFs can be inconsistent if you haven't got the perfect player for it so then you could opt for a T. Same goes for a DLF that you can swap for a DF. It really depends on the players you have in your squad as either combination works well. I prefer an AF over a P since they got pace and add a little more to the build ups as well but if your player is a Poacher by nature then that's a good alternative as he'd perform much better and be more effective in his own preferred role. Short passing is perfect but if your players lack a bit of quality in the passing department then opt for 'mixed'. I don't often go 'centre' re passing focus as 'mixed' works well against most opponents but sometimes this alternative will do. Note. Don't try/tweak all alternative settings all at once. Go for the Main Formation first and if that doesn't work pick 1 alternative option and try those 1 by 1 until your Main Formation becomes more effective. You may ultimately end up using the entire Alternative Formation but I recommend tweaking in small bits in order to pinpoint improvements. Results It really does work. These are the better seasons I had during my recent career. Many goals conceded I know but you can counter that with scored goals. Lots of scored goals as you can see. Over 100 easy! I did have two 'Invincible' seasons along the way so it's possible not losing a single league game if that's what you like. Lastly, I came up with this formation after writing an article about old football formations. If you want to create a formation of your own that is anything but mainstream and need ideas or inspiration, may I suggest following this link to Old Football Formations Hope things work out as it did for me and let me know what your opinions and results are. Goodluck!
  21. Hey guys and gals, new to the forums, just registered today to share my tactic as it is working miracles for me and wanted to share my success with everyone else who might be struggling to find a tactic that works for them, some info below: Game engine: OME Team managed: Bradford City Unlocks: Sugar daddy, gold coaching badge. Amount spent on new signings: 31 million (due to sugar daddy unlock) Same tactic used every game: Yes! With this tactic I have so far managed to have gone 17 games unbeaten in the league, beat man utd 2-1 away and scored 52 goals in 17 games wile only conceding 11. I am fully aware the players I bought play a big part of the success but I think the tactic itself also brings a lot of success, now on with the tactic: I will write a list of the amazing players I bought later. *PLEASE NOTE- DISCLAIMER* FOR EACH PLAYERS ROLE, THE PLAYER SHOULD HAVE THE REQUIRED STATS AVAILABLE FOR THAT ROLE TO BE EFFECTIVE, OTHERWISE THIS TACTIC WILL BE INEFFECTIVE..MY PLAYERS STATS MATCH THE ROLES PERFECTLY, WHICH IS PART OF THE SUCCESS, IF THIS TACTIC DOES NOT WORK FOR YOU THEN I SUGGEST YOU CHECK YOU ARE MATCHING THE MOST SUITABLE PLAYERS FOR EACH ROLE, THANK YOU Please test this and give your feedback in the comments section, thanks :-) Again I will write a detailed list in this maybe tomorrow of which players i bought, for how much, and what their required wage to sign is, also the clubs i bought them from etc. It will cost about £31 million to sign all players in the list, so it's only really suitable for those who have activated the sugar daddy feature from the store in the game. Now the tactic:
  22. In my first season with Blackburn I finished 10th in the Sky Bet Championship. A very average season I know, so I decided to create a new tactic that is balanced but attacking at the same time. So I created this system - With this system I managed to finish top of the Championship, finishing on 95 points with 75 goals, and only spending 3million on players. And also reaching the FA cup semi final where I was beaten 1-0 by Arsenal. The next season I was promoted to the premier league and stook with the same tactic. As you can see, after 22 games we sit 3rd in the premier league, having beaten big teams such as man Utd, Liverpool and man city. We are currently the top goal scorers in the league also. And are currently in the semi final of the capital one cup. For the first season in the premier league I think this tactic is worth a try. Good Luck
  23. I have been playing with Liverpool for 5 seasons now and it wasn't till the end of the 3rd season that I made a tactic that seemed to work and win games very well 4th and the 5th season I won the league. I've posted some screens shots of the tactic and off some wins and one of a striker who I've never bought before but he turned out to be a great buy and was less than 10 million
  24. Hi all I usually copy someone else's tactic and if it works I stick with it, so I thought how hard could it be, so in the 10 years of playing all the different types of football games, I have attempted a few of my own, but never to any success, until now I hope. I started with an outstanding club, and being a lower league supporter (Oldham) I guessed Chelsea would be the team I should try. So here goes a tactic that works for me and hopefully for anybody to try, I also tried with Oldham so lower league, the outcome was nowhere near success but still got them promoted first season through the playoffs with begged and borrowed players and little money. Had a couple of glitches on the way, picking a really young team in the cup which was a mistake, otherwise I always had a lot of possession and attempts on goal, just need a good striker who can finish. Purchased Calleri as my DF, didn't expect to many goals from him but set plenty up for Costa Won the league with enough games left to play the unhappy and young players Costa and hazard was on fire Oldham was a different ball game, plenty of mixing the team including 5 from the reserves to make a half decent team This was a test to keep them in a play off position Any way, as always you guys will see positives and negatives, all welcome and please try it for yourself and see what you think
