working on a second version, soon I will post a download link.

Anyone to share results?
Just about to start one with Shakhtar, i am going to try this tactic i will keep you updated every 3 months game play.
Not a bad result as it was my first game with the tactic, but will have to look for a new center forward as eduardo isnt clinical any suggestions.

champions league draw. unlucky for me i would be happy to get euro football from it with chelsea, juventus and malaga in my group

Don't forget traning of prefered moves, first games may happen those long range shots

Try also this tactic, it's quite the same with some modifications... just won 3-1 away against Benfica

31 shots, 11 long range... it's not to much, you will also have some

Player Statistics FC Porto vs Sporting CP

I forgot something very important:

use always this bench instructions
Bench Instructions Shouts

Sorry, it's in portuguese but I believe the order matches so you just have to corresponde one to another. Something like this, I do not know the exact terms in english:

-play from defence
- press deep
- agressive tackle
- play to ball to box
- play through defence
after 3 games in my champions league group winning two out of three. malaga 2-1 won juventus 2-1 lost and just got a brilliant win against a very strong chelsea squad 3-1
the bench instructions you have given me is that for the tactic im using now or the new one you told me to try?
Nice :-) don't forget this last instructions, they are important because it prevents so many long shots.

Also you giver the lectures to the player both collective and individual:

before the game: assertive I expect a win
end of 1st half: never say you are delighted, they won't play well in the 2nd half
end game: delighted

Also, day after game private chat with your players that they are playing well, they will be happy
i made a tactic similar to uses that i used to play with and still do now for Wrexham i play on counter however the player i have and also you with Porto i feel it would suit your team. if you do try it let us no how you get on.

Deal, I will give it a try :-)

Bench instructions are to use with both tactics I gave you, with this long shots are a lot fewer

Mark, I have just tried your tactic at the quarter-finals against Bayern Munchen. I had used my second tactic that I posted here and I won 3-2 in Germany. Now, at home, end of 1st half, it was 1-1 and I had to change to my tactic to take control of the game. Final result 2-2, here we go to semi-finals against Barcelona :-)

I think your tactic is lethal counter-attacking, it's a solid option to other teams rather than the big ones. Of course FC Porto is not at the top of the moutain :-) but it is a very good club with a solid european reputation and a club like FC Porto has to control the game and you can only control it if you have the ball :-)

How are you doing mate?
hi i understand were you are coming from have to tried to change it to control and use the shout contain possession and not to good as i forgot to save so have to start all over however i did get to December and was 12 point clear of second place and won 3/4 of my champions league game which seen me qualify
I am working in another tactic, same formation, late afternoon I will try it and share results if it's worth. The one I share has some problems, although has a great possesion and works well at home games, it has some problems with away games against good teams and I couldn't also get the striker to score goals as he should... damn not even shots. On the other hand, attacking wingers and midfields score a lot. So, now I will correct the positioning of the wing backs and other details.
sound good if you would like us to do some test just post the tactic and i will get back to you.
first competitive game with the second tactic you give me won ukraine super cup 2-0 against Metelurg d
That second tactic has the same problems I mentioned before regarding the first one. The new one will also be set a 4-3-3, but I will try to put players playing a 3-7-0.
ok well have you got a trail version yet and noticed your downloads have doubled in 2 days.
what training do you use ?
none i p;ut them to posistional training like douglas costa to inside forward training.
Mate, I think I have manage a new tactic that really put the team playing like Barcelona's tiki-taka :-) I am still at the pre-season but the way players pass the ball and move is awesome. To bad they are not yet fully identified with the tactic and also very tired due to the pre-season, but it is really really promissing (first game of pre-season 11-0, I was never, ever able to get a result like this) :-) Just let me play a few more games and I will share screenshots and link to download.

There are a few things that are absolutely essential with any tactic: lectures and private chating with players to keep them motivated; and even more important, you have to work the prefered moves of each. This is really the secret, for instance you won't do anything with a tiki-taka system if your forwards like long range shots. So alongside with the new tactic I am training this aspect and there are some prefered moves that all your players must do: disarms adversaries, close marking, disable all long range shots, defenders and midfields also prefered move pass more and shot less.

More Training: Lateral defenders act as wing backs, defensive midfielders as they are, midfielders as box-to-box, attacking midfields (flank) as inside forward and striker as number 10.

Some general instructions:
Strategy: Control
Philosophy: very fluid
Passing: More Short Pass (player instructions bar totally to the left for all players)
Pressing: more pressing
Tacking: more agressive
Creative Freedom: standard (player instructions: none to all players, except box-to-box midfielders)
Roaming: more roaming
Tempo: slow (bar totally to the left and move 2 steps to the right)
Width: narrow (the same as above)
Marking: Zonal Marking

Player Instructions:
Mentality: change to attacking to all players
All players move from position
Closing Down: Full to all players
Tacking: agressive

All players set to run from deep always, except defensive midfielder, box to box midfielders and number 10 (these are to be set sometimes)
Creative freedom set to none to all players except box to box
Tight Marking set to all players
All bars in the menu alongside with passing type (run from deep, run with ball, etc, etc) set to rarely except:

a) attacking midfields (flank)
1- run from deep: always
2- run with ball: sometimes
3- through ball: always
4- crossing: sometimes
5- wide play: cuts inside

b) number 10
1- run from deep: sometimes (also rarely, it's an option)
2- run with ball: sometimes
3- through ball: sometimes
4- crossing: sometimes
5- wide play: move into channels

So, with these instructions players are set to move all the time looking for space and they are always receiving and passing the ball, receiving and passing the ball until opponent is tired :-)
couldnt you intergrate the instructions for the players and training into the tactics so its a click and play. also if you share the tactic i am able to give it a try.
