Forged in Steel – Tactics and Recruitment

In this article I will discuss my recruitment strategy and how it all links to the tactic I am currently using. Having a long-term plan and strategy makes it easier for me to squad build and gives me something to aim for. It’s basically what keeps me invested in the current save and adds longevity for me. So let’s dive straight into it. Continue reading Forged in Steel – Tactics and Recruitment

Forged In Steel – The Intro

For the past few week’s I’ve been going back and forth as to where I should start on Football Manager. At first I was going to start in Brazil with my mandatory Santos save but I then decided that this year, I wanted to do something slightly different so decided against that idea. So it might come as a surprise to you that I decided to start with Sheffield United. Playing as the Blades isn’t exactly different but what I have in mind is different for what I normally do and how I play the game. Usually I start at a club and never move around, I stay at that club forever and if I fancy a new saved game, I normally just start a new game rather than move clubs.

The 4-2-3-1 Introduction

When I normally write an article it’s normally based on something from my own save game, I don’t really do request for articles as such. But for the last few years I’ve been asked quite regularly when I would be writing about the 4-2-3-1 and the answer as always been never.

Using four defenders you don’t really have many options you can use, so that’s always been my preferred method of play.

This year though I thought I’d bite the bullet and write about the 4231 to give people a better insight into how I’d use it. The only downside is I’ll be writing about the 4-2-3-1 and explain why this is my preferred option throughout the article. So over the next few weeks I will hopefully have this series about the 4-2-3-1 finished :). But for now, here is the introduction to get familiar with what I’ll be doing and why

From the O’s to Who Knows?

Hi all, I’m @MUFCPiece  on twitter and I am going to attempt to do something pretty new in terms of how I play Football Manager. I am going to share my save through writing a blog for the very first time! I have been playing Football Manager since 2012 and it has always been something that I was tempted by, so for this year, my goal is to become better at writing. As I’m new to this, if you have any feedback on how I can write better or give any information in a better way, please feel free to tweet me. Continue reading From the O’s to Who Knows?

12 Step Guide To Tactics

Not many people understand the match engine and how it works better than guest author @BusttheNet (Rashid1 on the SI forums). I recommend that if you are a fan of my site then please give Rashidi a follow as he is criminally underrated and followed on social media. He offers guides on his website but he also has a YouTube channel where you can find informative tactical videos. His work really is some of the best out there so be sure to check him out.
