MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY

  1. How do you defend the lead at the end of matches?
    I am use v8 with OI . The best for me.

  2. Using 8, playing in Thailand league. 4 league games 26 goals scored

  3. Centerbacks takes way to many yellow cards, for example Howodes gets 15 yellow cards in the league.

  6. I had a really fun save with the 6th version of this tactic. got bored after 10 years, started at galatasaray, moved to spain for a year and then monaco but after that save the tactic literally stopped working on other saves. I still get possession and hella shots but I cant seem to score, tried the 7th and 8th versions still the same.

    I know that but this tactic worked pretty good for 10 years as I said. I always expect to fail miserably at my second year as thats the fm way but when I dont the tactic is good. and now it just stopped working, no reason. I lost hope for this tactic atm. its not like I get a couple more draws and all thats natural. I literally cant score goals.

  9. Dumb question:The OI's from OP are for v7 ? I never tried v7,might give it a go with FCP.

  10. With the evolution of tactics, players filters and movements (predator) are obsolete. right? you will update?
    For me this tactic is still the best of all.

  12. I know there are newer tactics out but wanted to try this one. Which version is the best? From reading over the previous pages it seems like it's either v5 or v7 but I can't decide which I should use.

    I find V8 works very well as my secondary tactic. I switch from PREDATOR to get some tactical variety, seems to throw off good teams during important matches if I play a secondary tactic for a few matches prior. For example, if I have the domestic league wrapped up by March, I'll play my secondary tactic in the league and save my primary tactic for the later stages of the Champions League.

    Obviously, V8 also works well if you've got a surplus of MC/AMC guys and/or strikers are injured.

  19. How much worse will this tactic be if I remove the glitch corner of doom?

  20. Stockport and V8

    So this will be a long post about this tactic (v8) and my save with Stockport.

    I have been using this tactic throughout the whole game, with a little mix (half a season) with v7, else than that it has been v8.

    Also I have not used the Right-foot on the left midfielder and vice-versa, since I didn't have the players for that.

    I took the challenge of taking Stockport from the Vanarama North to the top.
    So far I have played 4 seasons, and have now ended my 5th season.


    Season 1 - Vanarama North
    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-vanarama-conference-north_-oversigt-runder.png

    A first place, with only 1 point margin.
    19 goals difference, not that great, but fair enough.

    Season 2 - Vanarama Conference
    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-vanarama-conference_-oversigt-runder.png

    This season didn't go so well. Ended on a 11th place in the league, nothing to be that sad about about. I did stay up, so that's good news.

    Season 3 - Vanarama Conference
    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-vanarama-conference_-oversigt-runder-3.png
    Ended 2nd with only 1 point to the 1st place. Not bad at all. Secured the step to the next league by winning playoffs.

    Season 4 - Sky Bet League 2
    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-sky-bet-league-2_-oversigt-runder.png

    Ended 7th, but secured a win in the playoffs, so I got another promotion.

    Season 5 - Sky Bet League 1
    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-sky-bet-league-1_-oversigt-runder.png

    This season was the most crazy so far. Even though all the other seasons I was way over the predicted place, this one I was predicted to get at 24th place which is absolutely last. Instead, even to my enjoyment, I ended first!

    Scoring 87 goals and concieding 47.
    Topscorer scoring 22 not that great at all, but here is a SS to show his stats!
    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-louie-theophanous_-oversigt-profil.png

    He played at the top attacker in this formation.

    Next my assistking with 23 assists and 11 goals. Played the right midfielder.
    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-alefe-santos_-oversigt-profil.png

    So this was my "review" of the tactic, and I will continue to use it.

    Sky Bet Championship is calling, and Stockport haven't been all the way up there since 01/02, and we are now writing 19/20.

    If you wish more SS, or have questions, please ask
    Conn, Kubzy, White Europe and 3 others like this.

  21. Sorry, but the version of the tactic with the F9 where I find it?
    Where is the download link?
    another question, what is the best of these tactics do you think?
    Thank you

  22. I tested this tactic with 5 different teams and every time is the same thing. Long ball , my defender jumps , the ball go over him and they score. I mean this is happening with 5(!!!) different teams ?!?! Teams are : Lazio , Liverpool , Botev Plovdiv , Lyon and Wolfsburg.
    I want to say that i never ever loose the first friendly with my u21 squad (with every tactic that i tested) and i did loose 3-5 to my under21 with this one...
    I tested other tactics where DC were Stoppers and almost the same thing happens.
    Is it just me or everyone seems to have this problem ???

  23. fantastic tactic but i only have one problem...lots of injuries..every game someone gets hurt!!!
    if i remove the ''tackle harder'' both from team and player instructions do you think iy will ruin the tactic?
    thanx!

  24. Hey TFF, i`ve tweaked your v8 tactic into a 4231 possession - counter tactic, i didn`t knew if it`s gonna work but the results are amazing. Changed the mentality to counter attack, and in the instructions i`ve selected retain possession, the gameplay is nice, defending with 10 players behind the ball and the attack ... what can i say... you can see in the screens :

    Arsenal save :

    Everton save :

    Instructions :

    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-2.jpg MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-3.jpg

    I know it`s a bit strange, counter attack mentality with retain possession instructions but apparently it`s working.

  25. ok how is your attacker doing? I dont see a lot of goals on him.

  31. A quick contribution from me, regarding how this tactic works for lower league/weaker teams. I've been using this tactic for Fremad Amager in the Danish second division. I promoted to the first division (of course without any transfer budget and hardly any wage budget) after one season. Can't show screenshots due to a revision of the structure of the Danish second division after first season. I finished on top of the table, media prediction was fourth.

    This is just to say that this tactic has worked very well for me, even if I haven't been able to acquire players that even remotely fit the recommendations of the creator of the tactic. So it's been very low maintenance for me so far. I'm doing my best to follow the guidelines of the original post, but when it isn't possible (which is most of the time), then to heck with it. It's worked for me anyway.

    Here's a screenshot of my striker from the first season:

    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-fremad-amager.jpg

    Also, the second season has started very well. Still without transfer budget, so the squad hasn't improved much since the promotion, the squad in itself probably shouldn't be able to save me from relegation, media prediction is 12th place:

    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-fremad-amager2.jpg

    I doubt it will continue like this, but avoiding relegation is looking highly possible already. All in all, if you want a low maintenance tactic without the hassle of manual marking and stuff like that, give it a try. So far I have no complaints.

    EDIT: I maybe should mention that I'm using V8 of the monstrous plug & play.

  32. Okay, so I finally found the negative thing about this tactic...

    Penalty kick eternity:

    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-penalty.jpg

    Seriously, is this a known issue? It was my first penalty shootout, and I kinda hope it's the last. Boring as shit. Praying for my players to miss in the end, but ended up feeling kinda bad when the goalie missed his third shot. Poor goalie

    I'm not sure what penalty shootout have anything to do with tactics?

    Penalty shootouts has nothing to do with game tactics, he's just trying to be funny I think.

    Although OP ain't updating this thread anymore, it still remains as one of the best tactics for a weaker side. Only downside is, it's not entertaining to watch, at least not for me. Most of the goals comes from the corner exploit.

  35. Absolutely brilliant

    Just wanted to say, this tactic is absolutely amazing. Went unbeaten in all competitive matches in 2nd season with Manchester United (only loss in a Champions League dead rubber, playing the youth team), with a goal difference of +100 in the league. Had my RMF win World Player of the Year 5 years running (I play with fake players), getting over 50 combined goals/assists every year. Also won 3 consecutive promotions with Peterhead from Scottish 3rd division to Premier League, with 0 transfer spending.
    I have been playing FM since 2006, and this is one of the most dominant (if a little cheap) tactics I've ever tried. Try this if you want some easy glory. (Verson 8)

  36. v7 upload please post 66 link don't work

  37. Just played a whole season with Everton using version 8 and it basically felt like cheating.

    I had a 10 point lead at the top and almost threw it away after changing loads of players in January which meant my team cohesion and tactic fluidity plummeted mid season but I held on and won it in the end.

  38. Obviously it has nothing to do with the tactic. It was just a weird occurrence, and since I was completely new to this edition of the game, meaning that it was my first penalty shootout, I was merely asking if this was a known issue (players just never missing a penalty, that is). Wrong thread, I know, but since I was already evaluating on this tactic...

    After several penalty shootouts, I can conclude by myself, that it's not nearly as bad as I was led to think.

    I almost agree. I've been playing with this tactic for quite some seasons. I was playing with Danish second division team Fremad Amager. By third season I was playing already playing in the Danish top division. Finished 7th first year, then 1st three years in a row. In my last year as manager of Fremad Amager I won my Champions League group ahead of Chelsea and was beaten narrowly in the quarter finals by Barcelona. Even though my team was pretty strong and should definitely challenge for victory in the Danish league, I should have been destroyed by teams like Chelsea and Bacelona, of course...

    Anyway, went on to manage Juventus, which is just a walk in the park. I pretty much never lose, and even though my squad is pretty strong, it isn't strong enough to just breeze through everything. Non of this is due to my own skills, I have to add.

    MONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-juve.jpgMONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-juve2.jpgMONSTROUS PLUG & PLAY-juve3.jpg

    I'm quite fond of being lazy and winning, otherwise I'd try making some tactics myself, but by now it's pretty much started to feel like cheating. If people want incredible results, this is definitely the tactic to choose.

  41. I have tested many of the tactics posted here and it is safe to say this is the most consistent and successful tactic I have experienced. Predator was never as successful even with manual marking.

    If anyone wants a very simple tactic to rack up the titles and just enjoy watching your regens develop, this is the tactic to go for.

  42. Ok I started using this tactic on mine new Soton save, and I can tell you that Pelle can be awesome in this tactic, but there are ew things you need to do, players surronfing him namely AM,B2B, and WM(both) need to be kinda good on creative side and good at crossing, Tadic is perfect so I set mine Pelle up front with TM(S) role and he is superb, he recieves balls and then assists to Tadic, Mane Ward PRowse and Fred its working quite good but you loose your edge on those amazing counter attacks... Still I would rather use Pelle than Long so just thought on sharing it with rest of ya, cheers and awesome work on tactic TTF

  43. guys v7 upload please..

  44. somebody please reupload v7
