OK, first of all apologies for uploading and deleting the total football tactic earlier last week. It worked very well for me in the lower leagues with Bristol Rovers but after further testing with better teams i realised it wasn't quite up to scratch. Basically its no good having a tactic which gets less effective the more you improve the team so it was back to the drawing board, which brings me on to this new one.
In the new improved one i've still wanted a more expansive tactic but made some big changes. I've gone back to a trusty 442, i still think it's by far the best and most effective formation to use on Football manager 2013. This is now an attacking tactic, i've used my Germany tactics from last year as a base but obviously with a 442 rather than 4231.
I've tested first with Vitesse in the Dutch league, went very well. Won the league comfortably and scored plenty of goals with beautiful football.
Im now testing with Spurs in the Prem and going pretty well considering the team still getting used to the new system.
Regarding players im not going to give a list of who to buy this time, just buy the best players you can, you should all know what attributes make a good defender, striker etc.
WHAT I DID DURING TEST:
PRE MATCH: ASK ASSISTANT
HALF TIME IF LOSING: AGGRESSIVE TALK
HALF TIME IF DRAWING: ASSERTIVE "I EXPECT BETTER SHOWING IN 2ND HALF"
HALF TIME IF WINNING BY 1 GOAL "DON'T GET COMPLACENT"
HALF TIME IF WINNING BY 2 GOALS "YOU've PLAYED WELL BUT YOU're CAPABLE OF BETTER"
HALF TIME IF WINNING BY 3 GOALS OR MORE "YOU've BUILT A SOLID LEAD BUT THINGS CAN CHANGE, KEEP YOUR PERFORMACE LEVELS UP"
FULL TIME WIN OR GOOD DRAW: PRAISE
FULL TIME DEFEAT OR POOR DRAW: AGGRESSIVE TALK
Opposition Instructions, none.
Plug & Play, never changed anything home or away.
Training: Balanced and Tactics only like shown in this screenshot:
Past Experience Automatic, note that if you pick something lower like sunday league footballer the game will be harder as players have less respect for you.
This tactic won't guarantee you a win every week but hopefully you will have success at whatever level you're playing at. Good luck.
