Dear FM fans, I don't upload my tactic's very often but this one I must share.
In last few FM series, tactics with 3 at the back, especialy with libero were disaster, but in FM13 they work perfectly.
My 3-5-2 (or 5-3-2 if you want) formation is based on Croatian national team formation from '90s
GK (defend) Dražen Ladić (classic keeper, the best you can get/Buffon,Casillas,Cech...)
SW (libero/attack) Zvonimir Soldo (important position in this formation, good tackling, pace, heading, pass, cross, long shot and creativity is bonus/Busquets,Pique...)
DCL (defend) Slaven Bilić (classic defender, good header, tackling etc./Terry, Puyol...)
DCR (defend) Igor Štimac (same as DCL)
WBL (attack) Robert Jarni (tackling, pace, cross/Lahm, Marcelo, Alex Sandro...)
WBR (attack) Mario Stanić (same as WBL/Maicon, Dani Alves...)
MCL (AP/attack) Aljoša Asanović (one of 3 playmakers it the middle, need good pass, creativity and some defensive attributes, teamwork, player for attack and defense/Moutinho, Modrić, Fellaini...)
MCR (DLP/defend) Zvonimir Boban (same as MCL/Xavi, Khedira....)
AMC (AP/support) Robert Prosinečki (player for 'final pass', dribbler, scorer, 'fantasista', 'no.10'/Ozil,Kaka,Iniesta,Ronaldinho,C.Ronaldo....)
SCL (AF/attack) Davor Šuker (finishing, dribbling, pace, heading, pass...this is your main scorer/Messi, Van Persie, Ibrahimović....)
SCR (P/attack) Alen Bokšić (same as SCL...this is your target man, he will score, he will assist, he is here to make a space for your main scorer SCL...pace is very important for this player/Rooney,Neymar,Hulk,C.Ronaldo,Ibrahimović...)
This is how formation looks like
The results since I use this formation (red ones are with 1-2 first team players on the pitch, because of EL.
Surprising European League results
I'm in season 2016/17., and my Hajduk Split is much stronger than real Hajduk, or that one on the begining of the game, I signed some nice brasilian regens, but still, my team is much weaker than Ajax, Napoli, Fener, Sporting and specially Dortmund, and in the final match against Ajax (with some great regens and Eriksen) i have played with 2 fast strikers at WBL and WBR positions because of injuries, so this is fantastic result.
Defence is strong, and in attack I always have 2-3 ccc, and I had some matches with 7-8ccc
Try it, I hope it will work for your team as well.
I give a lot of attention on team speak, and I don't change a much in formation during the match. I have used some shouts and changed mentality on contain in last few minutes of some EL matches, but that is all.
Also, moast of the goals that I have recived was after corners, so thet is something that can be fixed, like attacking corners, I haven't touch that.
