Arrigo Sacchi's 4-4-2: High Pressure, Attacking Tactic for Top Teams and Underdogs

    Thanks. I hope we can manage to bring home the title! FA cup is also other priority. Europe League... We'll see. It's most to rotate the players, because the focus is on the other titles.

    Two tips that I use:
    - One is yours. Against the big ones, away or at home, I ALWAYS play the more defensive players. For example, the wingers are always Downing (what a nice surprise this lad) and Henderson. They do a superb job. Work a lot and provide some good work in the offensive part. In the DM's, when they are available, ALWAYS play Gerrard and Lucas in those games. They complement each other perfectly in this tactic;
    - The other tip is pay a little more attention to PPM's. For example never play together Allen and Gerrard. They have both the "get forward whenever possible" PPM. I train Borini and Sturridge with some PPM that I think it's good for this tactic (run with ball through the middle, beat the offside trap, etc).

    I'm looking forward to try this in other clubs. Specially in "my" Benfica or at Spain

  2. Not bad

  3. Nope, not bad. But you could do better. If you could manage to win the title without defeats...
    Haha, kidding. Great job mate!

  4. seanhrfc can you tell me who was your AM for San Marino in first season?

    It was Gilson Granzotto, who is now my reserves manager! Will have to replace him soon though as he's only there through sentiment.

    I am off to the football, Cambridge United vs Luton. Not much to play for bar pride but there's a lot of pride in beating Luton!

  6. This tactic is a beast, only signed Victor Wanyama on my Southampton save to play with Morgan Scheiderlin as my DM. Finished 3rd placing on my first season, which gives me a spot in the champions league. Defense wise, its quite solid. The only thing I don't follow from the OP is to set OI. Other than that, I think team talks makes a big difference for me.

    Great job, seanhrfc!

    This depends, are they able to play in DM or be trained there? They could be useful attacking players to bring on if you're losing the game.

  10. I'm currently on a 4 match run of winning 5-0! Really enjoying my San Marino save.

  11. What do you do for team talks M8

  12. You Filters is Crazy, i Search Only 3 Players...

    Just move them down to until you find more

    The following are general guidelines:

    Against similar ability/marginly better teams - (Assertive/Passionate) Go out there and impress me.
    Against weaker teams (Assertive/Aggressive) I expect a result
    Against much stronger teams (Calm) Go out there and relax, the result will come.

    Then defence / midfield / attack individual instructions - I have faith (Assertive/Passionate).

    That's the general gist, but there are much better team talk guidelines out there that have great advice such as:

    Who are you playing as? You can adjust them down (12/13/14) or look for say 6 out of 8 attributes. Common sense really, in an ideal world they'll all be 15+ but very few players will have that. Even less so if you only have realistic transfers showing.

  16. ok im trying

  17. What an amazing tactic! I like that fact that it doesn't have to play amazing Football to win. The defence is pretty solid and so is that attack. I used it with Swansea in my second season, I put it in at March, and managed to finish 8th. (I was 11th before putting it in). Looking for a new save now, could anyone suggest me any teams?

    What level are you thinking? Lower-leagues? Underdog? Or a bigger team?

    Best of luck.

  21. Got a team mate - Arrigo Sacchi's 4-4-2: High Pressure, Attacking Tactic for Top Teams and Underdogs-untitled.png

    What an amazing win. We are predicted to finish 18th in the league. I have signed nobody as I just don't have the funds or Wage Budget. I can't see myself doing more than one season with this team, though. So if you could suggest a team(s) to me, I would appreciate. I don't mind which, just not *Big* teams.

  22. Bastia could be interesting, try to make them bigger than PSG? I will have a think about it....any country preferences?

  23. As long as it's in Europe I don't mind, if I enjoy the save, I will try and make them bigger than PSG. One thing: As I have not used it for a full season yet, do you get many "Mid-Season slumps" with this? If so, how to prevent them?

  24. I haven't had any mid-season slumps, but generally if i have even a couple of bad results together, I will have a team meeting. Also make sure the team talks are kept fresh. I've found I generally end my season strong.

  25. Another quality result! Is there a chance I could add you on Steam? If you do, inbox me?Arrigo Sacchi's 4-4-2: High Pressure, Attacking Tactic for Top Teams and Underdogs-untitled.png

    Ahh this will be why, at the moment your youth intakes will still be poor, whats your facilities/junior coaching etc like? Not to mention it'll be tough to have the right players in to fit the system.

    junior coaching is good rest is basic or just a little bit better

  38. Are you still a low reputation for the league? Its going to take seasons to start bringing players through that can compete in BSP upwards.

  45. So really it's going to be a struggle when you're relying on using youth players only. Just not getting relegated will be an improvement and hopefully gradually you'll get better regens.

    so what do you think the best plan would be

    First off, do you think the players are good enough and have the attributes for that level to give this tactic a go?

    Its more of a question of whether they can perform the defensive roles in the tactic, as they are very demanding!
