I don’t intend to make a habit out of this, but people have been asking me for downloads of my tactics or at the very least a screenshot of the style and settings I use. I’ll oblige, but I’d rather have a discussion on how to achieve a good strikerless style, rather than people just accepting my word as some sort of absolute truth. The style my teams play is my take on how a strikerless style should function and is very much open to debate.
This is the style I am currently using. For more info on the how’s and why’s of certain settings, either keep an eye out for the next installment of Clear Cut Chance, or keep an eye on my blog, because more elaborate posts will follow.
For those who are not really arsed about the specifics but just want to try the tactic (or for those who are interested but want to have a look at the settings in-game), I will include a few download-links as well. The style is virtually the same in every tactic, it’s the player roles and individual player settings I keep tinkering with.
Download 1 – an experimental strikerless version with a libero.
Download 2 – the version used in the two match-clips I posted earlier this week, a more “traditional” (if there even is such a thing) formation.
Download 3 – one of the older versions, still effective with the right players. It may help to showcase the progress we’ve made.
Download 4 – the first strikerless version I was content with for FM14, one that still features four attacking midfielders.
I hope this helps. As I said before, stay tuned for more updates!
