Now I’m not here to teach you that one piece of knowledge that will let you create an amazing record smashing tactic that will let you leave all your rivals crying as you secure trophy after trophy and everyone that stand in your way to dust. But I will tell you a dirty little secret I’ve picked up on over the years; there is no such thing as the one true perfect tactic anymore. The age of tactics like the Diablo, for those that still remember the days of CM 03/04, are over, you simply can’t just download a tactic of some website and win like you’ve never done anything else.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t learn a trick or ten and use them to your advantage on your road to glory, and that’s the real aim of this topic. To create a tactic together and learn from each other, learning by discussing every tweak and change and slowly building the best tactic we can build, together.
And so the first choice stands before us, one that will influence every other choice we make as we go and set the tone for the whole thing. The choice of club! Some things to think about before you make a suggestion;
- Is the club capable of playing several styles of football, or just one?
- Is the club way stronger or weaker than other teams in its league?
- Is the squad diverse enough to actually create some real discussion around roles and positions?
Let the suggestions come!
