First i wanna say im a fan of the possession football philosophy and i dont care of who..possession is my favourite style and when i play withou possession i feel im doing nothing.
since i started play fm 2013 this year i tried desperately create a possession tactic and find good ones or maybe read a lot. i tried it since i play FM.
so when the game started i understood this is really hard to get a dominating possession tactic so i waited till the game will update and maybe it will be fixed.
as you saw in the title of this thread i mentioned the possession break tactic of the genius tactikzzz from FMTN.
i tried it after every update to see if it works and tweaked it.
after the last update (13.2.1) i saw it works very good. i tried it with H.beer sheva from the israelian league and with ajax. it worked great. but i conceeded a lot of goals and even the passes thing wasnt so fascinating. so i tweaked it a little and it just started to work great. i got like 70%+ possession every game and the passes are on fire!
my playmaker passes the 120 mark every game no matter the player quality! and even better i conceeded less goals. but, the problem was my team just can't score and its very difficult for them to make chances to score.
another problem is that when i face a much stronger opposition than me my team can't make chances and worse, cant even make passes in their half.
i'm sure that it has to be an answer how to fix it. because yes maybe you will say that i need to have the special players to play like this. but it isnt true because against all teams that aren't stronger than me i dominate possession and win. only agains a much stronger team im defeated.
i'll post to you some screenshots for you to see how it worked and maybe something you will see that i didnt can help me.
this was a game against veendam.
poulsen have broken the analysis as you can see and passed the 256 passes in one game.
the team made over 1400 passes in 120 minutes.
in this game we lost in penalty but we had 18 chances and they had just 4.
the possession was 75% and we had to beat them because we played great.
now against TWENTE that is more or less in our level.
poulsen reached more than 220 passes in this game but still as i sayed the scoreline was 0-0 and we created less chances than TWENTE.
we dominated the possession in this game too but still 2-1 to the opposition.
and the chances were poor.
this is against a poor opposition in pre season when the tactic familiarity was in the start.
so, this is it. hope you will try to help me and tell me what will help the tactic be more dominating.
by the way sorry for my bad english its not my mother tongue.
thanks everyone for watching' hope you read it all and please try to help me and comment.
I tried to test again the tactic. the original one..and saw great resault. I would like to open again this thread to call people to try it. I think the biggest problem was the defence with three at the back. But now with a few patches I think a lot of bugs have been fixed and it's more suitable to FM 2013.
I would like to call again some people that want to try it and post some resaults. i'll post too some SS.
