Following another successful FM13 Shortlist we decided to create this one again this year. This shortlist is always one of our most popular one’s, it is a combination of great players and cheap prices, whats not to like. All of the players on this shortlist are available at a very average price, not much more than their value. Their are a mixture of players in their prime and players who have great potential.

Yet again this is another in my collection of free Football Manager 2014 Downloads, with over 6,500 of you subscribed and over 50,000 downloads for Football Manager 2014 i am glad to have your continued support.

Football Manager Tactic 4-5-1 Counter


This article and many others in this series are all about building towards having a Tactical index which is going to be part of the Football Manager 2013 tactics series., in which we have every single formation we have played ourselves and the scene has available. This is not us saying these are the best tactics around, or explaining them in full depth, we will even link to other sites that have better articles so you can improve as managers. These are just systems we have developed ourselves that work really well and are available for you to download. This article is clearly about a counter attacking strategy in Football Manager 2013 in a 4-5-1 formation.

http://footballmanageracademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/FMA-4-5-1-Counter.jpg


This is the counter 4-5-1, I created this FM Tactic to counter much better opponents than ourselves. In all my matches I want to win like everyone but you cant always play the same attacking formation aginst stronger sides as this will normally end in a defeat. So to counter this happening I developed a solid base to then push forward from when the opposing team are more exposed like when an attack of theirs has broken down. First you need to win the ball back and make sure you dont conceed and I feel I accomplished this at the best of times having 6 defensive minded players as well as a box to box player making it almost 7 players concentrating winning that ball back to counter. I even have the wingers supporting the full backs incase the opposing teams full backs decides to come forward.

http://footballmanageracademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/FMA-4-5-1-Counter-instructions.jpg


This is very much a defensive minded formation no doubt but I still want to try and nick that goal to get us a valuable 3 points. Although I only have one attacking minded playing my deep lying forward but in the attacking phase on a counter this can quickly turn to 4 players up against a possible two or 3 of their defensive players from a counter. I also think with this formation you should check out how to make the most of set pieces, check out our guide on Football Manager Set Pieces. I think countering from set peices also helps and that guide will show you how.

Strengths

Solid shape at all times
Fewer mistakes will be made costly
Less clear cut chances will be made against you

Weaknesses

Less chances created
Play is more in your own half than theirs
Less posession

Team its good for

Winning by a narrow lead with 10 minutes remaining
Good defensive players
Pacey box to box player and wingers
Players with good stamina
A solid formation to start with in hard away games

Opposition its weak against

Good Target Man
Against very good passing team
Against good long shot players

Video

Have a watch of this video here, no goals but it was a solid 0-0 with Man City at the Etihad not creating any real chances in the match despite playing 3 attacking midfielders and a striker!! You will also see a few chances created by my Palace team on a counter attack.

Attacking 4-2-3-1 In Football Manager


This article and many others in this series are all about building towards having a Tactical index, in which we have every single formation we have played ourselves and the scene has available. This is not us saying these are the best tactics around, or explaining them in full depth. These are just systems we have developed ourselves that work really well and are available for you to download.

http://footballmanageracademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Ultimate-Tactic-home-formation.png


This is the attacking 4-2-3-1 the difference between this and just your normal 4-2-3-1 is that the two central midfielders are not sat in front of the back four but they are pushed up further up the field which drags the whole team formation a lot higher up. The man behind the striker is also set to attacking so will be providing less creativity and support and looking more a this own goalscoring threat, so it relies more upon the two central midfielders and wingers to create more.


http://footballmanageracademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Best-FM-Tactics.png


So as you can see the system is set up for attacking, so clearly this is a home based tactic. It is a system that doesn't look to dominate possession but tries to make the most of it when you do have it. Something that a lot of people don't do. As fitting in with the formation the team tends to push quite high up and presses them, this means they can win the ball back in the oppositions half which has to be one of the most important points in FM, not how often you win the ball back, but where. Also the tempo is something to note.

Strengths

Takes advantange of the transitional phase.
oesn't require any specific players.
Creates a high number of chances.
Pushes the oppisition very deep.

Weaknesses

Chance conversion.
Pushing to high up.
Living space between midfielder and defence.

Teams its good for

Anyone at Home.
Teams with quick players, and less technical ability.

Teams to Manage using this Tactic

Borussia Dortmund
Juventus
Shaktar Donetsk

Wonderkids in Football Manager are one of those subjects that are always discussed, they are the first thing we all look for in the first year. Nothing beats that feeling when you finally find that unbelievably player that no-one has found yet.

However sometimes we just want to have them gems at our disposal to find straightaway. So I have come up with a nice download so you can have all of the wonderkids in Football Manager 13 at your disposal straightaway.

Of course these wonderkids will only reach their potential with the right training, game time along with many other factors. Yet we have handpicked all of these, and these are the ones we have seen time and time again reach their potential. No doubt you will know some, but some of them will no doubt be surprises.
