Screenshots
VP's 4-2-3-1
Have had reasonable success with this so thought I would upload for others to try.

I never use opposition instructions, so make sure they are set to be controlled by yourself.

Mentalities To Use

When playing at home choose to be either Attacking or Positive.

When away choose Balanced.

If winning late on I usually change to Defensive.

Shouts I Use

Playing well > Praise
Scored a goal > Praise
Need a goal > Get Creative
Pushing for a goal late on > Get Forward
Winning late on > Tighten Up/Calm Down
Playing poorly/losing > Demand More
Discussion
Just wondering how those of you using this are finding it, I've only tried it with two small sides and both of those I managed to over achieve with but would love to know how it does with a team full of quality players.

With Southend we were favourites to go down but finished 7th in the Championship, 2pts away from the play offs and currently in China with Yifang we were tipped for mid table but with two games to go we're in the ACL Champions League qualifying positions and have also made the Chinese cup final.

You have created a monster with this tactic. Loads of goals don't concede many and goals from midfield. Love it.

That's great to hear, can I ask what team you're using?

Spurs, I use it on another save with Wrexham as well. It works well with both.
I've updated the file as made a couple of small changes to the pressing and a higher line of engagement. Plus changed the striker from poacher to advanced forward.

Rather than just say it's shit, could you at least post some results and who you actually was playing as.

how did you get auba to score so many goals struggling to get him and lacazette to be consistent and scoring
Hi VP

Should be Pressing Forward or Advancewd Forward? I have PF and on a screenshot you have AF

I found the same after the last patch, though the inside forwards seemed to score more...

I prefer an advanced forward though use which ever suits your strikers better.

The tactic you have for download does not match the screen shot at all haha.
how do you add this to the game?

Download the file and place it into D:\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\tactics, then when in game load it here on the tactics screen.

Thanks, this works great, I got promoted to the championship with Portsmouth
I play Arsenal almost similarly.
At home always attacking. (Most notable achievement - beating Bayern 3-0, Barcelona 5-1, City 4-0/3-0, Spurs 4-0/4-1)
Away from home either positive or attacking. One DLP in defensive duty. Usually ends up in a goal-fest. (Most notable - Barcelona 0-2, City 0-3)
The first season, Auba-Laca both netted 30+.
Won every trophy in the first season. Despite a loss against Bayern, Europa was smooth. Prem was especially hard. A lot of draws at first. I think over 10. Beat Manchester United in the title race by a point.
The second season, Auba is already at 30 mid-December. However, Laca at 10.
One big problem is the number of yellow cards. Always on the edge.
I'm struggling with Stuttgart, but I think it has more to do with the players. I like the style
Just wanted to say thanks and good work ! You created a monster of a tactic. It's the best tactic I ever tried. Currently playing with A. Madrid 4th season and I am smashing everything. Same thing happend with Juve and Man City. Thanks and keep it up !

Very glad to hear. If you've the right team/players it can be very good, certainly one of the best I've made.

OK I was killing it with this tactic with Leeds until the latest update (19.3) 2 games played since I have lost 11-1 to Liverpool and 5-1 to Stoke. I have a fairly decent team and it worked fine before the update.

GK - Casilla DF - Walker-Peters, Harry Maguire, Liam Cooper, Saed Kolasinac MID - Jamie Shackleton (young leeds player but his CA is 140), Rafinha FWDS - Jack Clarke, Tom Lawrence, Kasey Palmer ST - Pinamonti.

Anyone else have this issue? I know it seems to be fine with your Southend team any advice?

Just got smashed 6-1 at home by Chelsea as well, seems the update has ruined my game

I've stopped using it now for the same reason, may still be Ok if you have a very good squad but struggles of a smaller side now. I'm using a downloaded one myself as not had time to try and make a new one, I'll see later if I can get permission to post it here as its a pretty amazing tactic.

I have been using it with Spurs and have had pretty decent results.

PL Fulham (H) - 1:0
CL Vidi FC (H) - 3:0
PL Newcastle (A) - 2:0
LC Sheffield U (A) - 5:2 (played my reserve/youth players)
PL Chelsea (H) - 3:0
PL CSKA Moscow (A) - 2:0
PL Wolves (H) - 3:0

I changed the CD roles to BPDs, and when Wanyama is playing, I deploy him in BWM role. I have not changed the mentality, and have always used Attacking. So far this tactic has been solid defensively, and that is something I haven't had with other downloaded tactics that suit my squad. So, thumbs up from me, mate.

Thanks mate would be great if you were able to share.

By the way I absolutely loved your Arsenals Invincibles tactic in FM17 it was the best one I think i've ever used many many years of success!!!
