    Yeah mate, used it from as soon as I took over!

    Incredible turn-around there, from worst in the league to champions league football and double cup win!

  4. I'm in the process of compiling a list of recommended players for the latest patch. Will be aimed at mid-lower table Premier division sides, anybody who has been using the tactic and have recommendations please post in this thread and I can add them.

  5. I am playing with spurs as I told before, played 22 league games 16w 5d 1l, I am in the curling final, doing great in europa league!!! Bought Wanyama for back up, but he is by far the best player so far, absolute beast with much better rating than Bale, Kaboul, Jovetic, Nem, Defoe, Santon, Walker who also play great!!! So without a doubt he MUST be in that list!!! Love this tactic, will post screenshots when season is over, but this will take a while cause I am working many ours and have to spend and some time with wife, so unfortunately I have only 1 to 3 hours a day for the game!!!

  6. Hello , this is the best freaking tactic out there. Thank You.
    I wanted to share this pics with you all, Im playing with the Swedish team Malmö FF (Ibrahimovic's first team) and im enjoying it quite well. As most of you guys know the Swedish League "Allsvenskan" isn't quite famous. That's why I got really happy for beating teams like Juventus, AZ Alkmaar, Spartak Moskva And Mönchengladbach.

    Here's some pictures.

    very nice well done

  9. The opening page has been updated with player recommendations, let me know what you think. Cheers for the great feedback on the tactic guys.

  10. Hey Seanhrfc,

    Are you still using OI's like suggested in the first page. I'm not one for silly Q's but just thought i'd ask?

    Yes I am, though I have a class AM and he generally gets it right so I leave him to it. If you're wary of your AM, I'd set it up yourself.

  12. Cheers bro...congrats on the great tactic! Your results are truely amazing...

  13. Cheers, lets hope there's not a new game engine patch out for a while :p

  22. Champions League Winners with Rangers? Now that would be pretty good.

  23. Gunna attempt to use this on an old Portsmouth save that's about 10 games in. Should be the ultimate test!


    Also Sean I tok over at Chelsea on my Wigan save just for fun and its smashing every team.

    I'm starting to think that this tactic could win the league with any team, providing they have a reasonable basis for it. Thought of giving it a go with Barca or Real :p

    I have mine automatically save every two weeks as there's nothing more frustrating than losing hours of play time!

  27. Great tactic mate, I've just try it with Man City (with some change in corner as I always did for all tactics) and the first 3 matches was dominated!
    Have you ever change your ML/MR to AMR/AML? I could change it myself but I think you've got experience in this topic

    Cheers, this should do very well with city! The only time i've ever changed them to AM is when i've struggled to score in a game, and i push the DMs to MC as DLP(s) and CM. I never start with it, the idea is to keep all the units close together.

    Re-train them to DM, M R/L or ST. If they don't fit in there, sell them and bring in someone who does.

  32. I'm going to play my international games vs Kazakhstan and Wales then I may give Barca a quick go!

  33. I may already have a sick team for Arsenal already: Szczesny; Sagna, Vermaelen, Dede, Digne; Romulo, Kara; Wilshere, Gotze; Damiao, Dybala. Romulo and Kara as the two DM's. Wilshere and Gotze as the ML and MR. I Beat Chelsea 4-0. I also won the Community Shield (Vermaelen got sent off on the 27th second) I subbed the AF and moved the striker as ONE CF and subbed on a CB and still beat City 2-0. I also won the Euro Super Cup. I will provide screenshots tomorrow when I am on my computer

  35. Hey Sean ,

    I've been viewing this thread for a while and I must say I am impressed. I'm a big fan of people who create tactics from real life. I'm tempted to give this a go and if I do, I will report back.

  36. This is a very solid tactic. Got my Hartlepool team promoted. Ended the first season at 10th, not bad considering the players we had.

    However I concede a lot of goals from set pieces and crosses. Any suggestions to deal with that?

  38. Btw, sean how do you set up the OI? can explain more throughly? Lets say if i'm managing a bottom table team like reading, etc. Well, a very good tactic, just not sure how the OI work. Cos my ass man sucks.

  39. mate,which attributes i need to look for good Assistant Manager - Man managment and tactic know.?

    We have same problem

  41. Yep, and regarding the staff responsibilities, what are your settings like? Hmm anyone mind to share. Screenshots.

  42. I personally don't think you need to use any OI. I am having success without using them

  43. Forgive me if this has already been asked before - I've tried scanning through the thread!

    What do you do when you have someone sent off?

    What's the aerial ability of your back line like? You may have a weak link in there. My other suggestion is if it really becomes a problem, switch from defensive positioning to defending set pieces.

  45. I'm playing Dortmund with this tactic and I am being impressed by this tactic's solidness.
    When I met Chelsea at their home, I beat them by 3-0 !

    OK, firstly there are two settings that you must avoid - rarely & never. These two instructions will go against the general philosophy of the tactic.

    Tight Mark Always - any player in M/AM/F RLC who has pace/acc less than 12.
    Closing Down Always - any player in DM, M/AM F RLC who has pace/acc less than 12 or possesses 14+ long shots. Any D RLC with an attribute in composure, concentration or decisions less than 10.
    Tackling Hard - any player with Bravery less than 12.
    Show Onto Weaker Foot - Anyone who's weaker foot ability is very weak, weak or reasonable.

    I hope this helps. However this tactic can also be used as plug and play, not always a need for the OI. It just helps give that little bit of an edge I feel.

    I like to be in control of all the transfer/contract affairs. Tried with DOF but they just don't do as well as I know I can do. I personally don't like press conferences / interaction with other managers. I keep myself to myself and let the football do the talking. I find that aspect rather tedious.

    Take off the AF and play a lone Complete Forward is probably your best best, still managed to win a fair few games this way!
