(sorry if my english is poor, it's not my language)
I wanted to share my 4-2-3-1 tactic that i think is right up there with the best tactics out there. I must say that i am not a tactician but one who has always downloaded tactics from others, in recent years mostly from FMS Darren Smith. But since Football manager 2014 i have tried and tried and tried to create my own and have probably over 40 tactics in my name, few that were pretty successful, but only for a short time and many many bad ones.
The reason i wanted to share my tactic is this:
This is my 3rd season with Chelsea. I scored 114 goals and only conceded 27. For me that is amazing. So after i finished that season i thought i needed to test it so i tested it with 2 teams, first Real Madrid and then Southampton. One very good team and the other a decent team with big potential.
So i'm gonna post screenshot from both test saves but i played full season with each team. I'm gonna show you every screenshot you possible would want to see. So starting with my Real save.
I did not pay 77m but managed to do this with monthly payments.
Next league results.
Some bad results against Almeria and Elche.
here is the rest.
Lost again to Elche!! And to Athletico.
So this is how the league ended.
Again, amazing! 123 goals to beat Real's record of 121. Barcelona lost their last game of the season to Athletico so it was really close.
Next Champions League.
Beat Schalke in final.
Next some stats:
Finally, goals from corners and goals conceded from corners.
Goals from corners.
Goals conceded from corners.
So this was pretty easy, as expected. Still some luck in winning the league in the end but.
So here is same screenshots from my southampton save. Starting with transfers.
This was a bit more difficult. Started with 0 in transfer budget. But when i asked for more, the board gave me 14(or 15) don't remember.
Simone Pep was really good apart from being injured a lot. Valencia was also good for me. Fischer is young and did ok, scoring some goals. Balanta was good as expected but got homesick and was homesick in the end so i let him go before the last 4 games (thinking about playing this save more, wanted to keep him happy)
It was pretty difficult as you can see.
Some difficult games mixed with some fantastic results. Last game of the season vs Arsenal proofed to be a pretty important win.
So i managed top 4 in my first season with Southampton. Haven't been this excited for a long time.
Carling Cup results
My priority was the league but i managed to get to the semis.
Pretty shocking really! but again my priority was the league.
Goals from corners.
Goals conceded from corners
Finally the tactic itself.
When the season starts:
I do not make any tactical changes during these tests. My preferred assistant manager is Mauro Tassotti. In my Southampton save i promoted Martin Hunter. I let them do the OI every time.
I'm not sure what to tell you more. Just give this a try and please comment if you like it. Can't promise you a success but i know this tactic works really really well.
