This tactic was my first and only tactic I created myself back on FM 18. I used it to take Wigan to the Premiership. It was doing so well for me that I uploaded it to Steam Workshop and from the feedback I had on there it proved to be an overall success for most that used it. Currently I am testing this with FC Halifax in the Vanarama National League.
This tactic is a high tempo, short passing, attacking 4-4-1-1 tactic. Your players will need to fit the roles reasonably well although they don't need to be perfect (I say that as my team loosely fit and seem to be coping fine). I recommend as a minimum that the back four defenders match the player roles as close as possible in order to maintain the defensive integrity aspect of this tactic.
When developing this tactic back on FM 18, the defence were very leaky, an issue that I fully addressed and so far that water tight defensive aspect seems to have carried over well.
I think it is possible to make some minor tweaks with regards to player roles, if you require to do so in order to match up with the players you have. For example I have changed the AMC role from trequartista to advanced forward (attack), this was purely because I had a decent AMC for my Non League team, but he really did not suit the trequartista role.
Please give it a go and let me know in the comments how it's going, hopefully you see the instant success that myself and others are having so far with this one. Please leave contstructive feedback guys.
Just for those new to FM, please ensure you copy this tactic file to the following folder (Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2020/tactics). Then in game, go to tactics page, use the drop down menu in the top left of the tactics page and select 'Load' and select the tactic file you downloaded.
So a little update or advice rather, I am noticing that my team are beginning to struggle a little in the scoring department against smaller teams. I believe that the reason behind this is that as my club rep increases with more and more wins under the belt, the more defensive these teams set up against me as a result (something I have read on the internet recently). To try and negate this, if come half time I am drawing, winning 1-0 or even losing (usually 1-0 as a result of a well executed counter), I switch the mentality from Attacking to Positive. In doing so my players are just showing a bit more patience when going forward, picking their passes and shots a little more wisely. I tried this in quite a few games so far and seems to really do the trick, often getting 2 to 3 goals in the second half, whilst my defence appears to remain solid. It doesn't always work but I have noticed a definite positive trend when making this half time tactical tweak.
After some of you commented about the tactic file not been found in game, I have saved and uploaded the tactic again here, hopefully that does the trick. I'm not sure if tactics used in the BETA version of the game will be compatible when the full version releases. I will re-upload once full version goes live.
After being away from FM for several months, I'm starting a fresh save with Derby County. I will flex the tactic and make sure it works well with any updates that have occurred since my last session. Once i'm happy I will re-upload the tactic file here so you can be sure to have the latest version. Watch this space.
