So here it is...a proper solid counter tactic.
YOU NEVER SEEM TO KEEP THE BALL
THEY NEVER SEEM TO GET MANY CHANCES
YOU TACKLE TIL YOU DIE
Right enough of the BS and on with the proper stuff.
Im West Ham as you will see from screenies i supply. I am a newly promoted side being manager for a couple of seasons now and as you can see doing quite well but always room for improvement..this is where you come in.
The tactic is what it is...for underdogs i guess but any team please try and give me feedback so we can improve it together
SHOUTS AND OPP INSTRUCTIONS
MY ASSISTANT DOES OPP INSTRUCTIONS AS HE HAS 16 FOR TACTICAL KNOWLEDGE
This is something i seen in other peoples successes and thought it would save time.
I ALWAYS START WITH..
RETAIN POSSESSION( l know how funny this looks but i never even attempted to take it off )
PASS INTO SPACE ( I had hoped this helped us break with pace)
GET STUCK IN ( I started without this and players just stood and watched..now they tackle like tigers and as yet not really had discp issues)
EXPLOIT THE MIDDLE ( As you guessed...my players are there)
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO TRY OTHERS and share !!!
GK- JASON STEELE He aint been the best but cant really use my sub so im stuck..Never noticed what attributes to go for other than decency lol.
DR/L - I use Matty Briggs and a couple of others but a good all round full back is needed as they are the consistent width of the team.
DC -I use quick centre backs but i doubt this is important as its a deep D-Line. Good tacklers are required but not too aggressive i guess.
DM/DLM - Good tacklers a must as they break up attacks in the first instance. Creative edge in the playmaker obviously.
IF - Good dribblers and passers would be helpful but finishing is also good to have. Pace is also helpful i guess
AP - PASS THEM TO DEATH..sits slightly deeper in theory and picks the defence open but can score too When he plays well you do.
ST - Dribbling is a must as i use a regen who is very quick and aint a great finisher.
I HAVE BEEN VERY VAGUE WITH THE PLAYERS AS I WANNA KNOW HOW YOU GET ON. I HAVE GAVE THE BASICS IM SURE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO WORK IT OUT AS YOU MANAGE YA TEAM.
I FIND WITH FM13 ITS MORE TO DO WITH MAN MANAGEMENT AND LESS ON PLUG AND PLAY. THIS IS A BASIS FOR AN UNDERDOG TEAM. YOU NEED TO GET THE BEST OUT OF WHAT YOU GOT.
Questions ????? Just ask im banking on this to help you and me out.
PLEASE DONT JUST SAY ITS CRAP AND THATS IT...like i have said its a solid enough tactic i aint been hammered yet...obviously its possibly just around the corner.
NOW INCLUDES ATTACKING TACTIC WITH SOME GOOD RESULTS..NOW IN LEAGUE CUP FINAL AND STILL 7TH IN FEB.
Please use control tactic if you are fave in game...maybe if your behind too but let me know how you get on !!!
