Tactics Truck!

Recommended Posts

Here you go, the day you've all been waiting for, time to pit your wits against the best, and Turdseye!

 

It's not overly complicated, but it will take a little time and thought.

 

All of the things below go together to make you the manager you want to be, so take in to considaration that some things will contradict each other so be careful.

 

We have all been set with the same qulifications and reputation, this will be the only thing that diferentaites us from each other.

 

So first thing to choose 'Philosophy' this will be what you are held up against, so choosing attacking and then Playing like El Cholo will have the fans, media and players on your back and can effect moral. so it's the easiest choice, but one that effects massively.

 

So choose one or two from.

Next is prefered formation, you only need to choose it at this point, we refine it later...

 

Prefered Formation...

Second Prefered...

Attacking...

Defensive...

 

'You' are tactically astute enough to know when to use which, but will use the prefered in the vast majority of cases.

What is your coaching style?

General 

Defensive

Attacking.

 

This is the important part now...

 

You have 155 points to distribute on your tactical attributes, you can chose 0-20 in each, but no more than 155!

Your nontactical attributes, you have 250 to distribute, again between 0-20.

The next set is your tendencies to do these things so if you want to be a pressing team it would be high, rate yourself out of ten for the ones that are the most important to the way you want to play. You can not just rate ten for all as your players will not know which instructions to follow so you have to think about how they will work in the bigger picture and some some be low or zero.

Next is the fine tuning, each player in your formation can be given specific instructions, they will not do it every time, but they will look to where possible, try to link this to how you want your team to play overall 'the bigger picture'

 

You can only choose one for each position and remember to think about the players you actually have and their ability to fulfil these roles.

That's everything to do with how you want your team to play, it'll take some thinking, but you can't go too far wrong as long as you don't contradict instruction and confuse players.

 

Most importantly, are you a suit or tracksuit manager?

 

So if you C&P this filled out and PM it to me when you have chosen.

 

I have done mine already so I can't plan for yours and it's a level playing field

Is it best to private message this to you? So then we're not all doing a Bielsa and watching what each one of us is doing

 

Yes, as it clearly states, you dozy cunt.

 

There's a copy and paste thing at the bottom with all the options.

Do we have standardised coaching staff?

 

We all have a world class backroom staff.

 

But if there are any shortcomings identified by the board they will get them in for you, which will happen first day of the game, I don't see any though.

 

Because all teams are loaded the numbers allowed will be higher so they might bring in people anyway, but to start with everyone has the best you can get across the board and any additions the game makes will not make a difference.

Bruce , apologies if I am being dense but what exactly are we doing in the tactics bit near the end ?

 

Am I putting a players name next to each tactic - like putting Calvert-Lewin next to ' Target Man '

No, just what you want the person in that position to do, whichever player plays there.

 

So it would be ST - Target man.

 

That make sense?

My enthusiasm for this has waned. What’s the deadline for getting all this in?


ASAP.

 

We’re in the middle of a global pandemic and not allowed to leave the house, the fuck else you got to do?

I'm a bit confused. The formation I want to play is as was posted by Scott on the other thread - I would describe it as 4-2-1-3, but I don't see that option, so I assume it's going to have to be 4-2-3-1? But then there are variations that, to be honest, don't mean a lot to me... I also don't really understand the last part because different players playing in the same position (rotation, injury or whatever) will play differently, no?

It's a 4-2-3-1, The wide players count as wide forwards, playing 4-2-1-3 means three strikers. Just choose attacking, like Klopp, or Defensive, like Rafa.

 

The different players part is based on your first eleven and what you want them to play like, the manager in the game, and the staff, will work on the other players.

Winners don't take short cuts, Scott.


I’m happy to do it, I pity you having to piece together.

 

Would a manager draft be easier? Sides just set up how the manger sets up his sides.

Once I have the data it's probably about two hours work, which lets face it, isn't such a loss at the moment...

 

More than happy to do it, it's a welcome distraction from the shitfest.

Yeah I'd have voted for a manager draft after all this. 

 

But maybe make it you can't have a top flight manager or something.
