Gather round everyone, I bring you good news. I have uncovered the perfect Football Manager 2015 tactics to fast-track your managerial career and set you on the road to inevitable success!

My fall from grace

Up until FM 2014 I had the proud record of never getting the sack in 11 (real life) years of football management – probably 90 years or so in the virtual world.

My secret? I had a tactic which seemed to work with every club. In Football Manager 2010 I won the league with Newcastle United, left them and won the league with Manchester United the following season, followed by championdom with Arsenal the year after, Aston Villa the year after that and then with Everton. Each time I played an attacking 4-3-2-1 or 4-2-3-1 formation that paid dividends.

Alas, come Football Manager 2014, the game seemed to have evolved past my simplistic approach. The new detailed team talk, team instructions, individual roles and training features seemed to be killing my success. In November of 2013 I was fired as Leeds United manager.

In November of 2014 – now playing FM 15 – I was also in danger of getting the sack from Sheffield Wednesday...

The prodigal son returns

I had started well with Sheffield Wednesday, sitting just outside the playoffs after nine games. However I then went on a 10 match winless streak which exemplifies everything I hated about the new Football Manager. How can a team doing well go so shit, so quickly and nothing seemed to arrest the problem?

In early December, while battling relegation, I jumped ship to take over Leeds United again; a return to the place of my discontent.


The exact same problem carried over to Elland Road and I ended the season in 13th - one place behind Sheffield Wednesday.

The tactic

The 2015-2016 campaign started the same bloody way. I won three, then over my next six games I only managed threes draws and three losses. Something had to give so I turned to the internet for help.


I found a tactic called ChristianEriksen Beautiful Play.


Formation wise it was exactly the same as I always played anyhow.


But here's where the big difference was. In team instructions I had only ever two or three boxes selected. This one had 13 ticked.


It seems it is here that football matches are won and lost. For instance apparently if you want to play a short passing, possession game you need to play a slow tempo,. Previously I had it set on 'quick' so I was contradicting myself.

My record

Since I changed to this tactic, which was pretty much a simple change in those team instructions I have lost two matches in 20. I am comfortably 2nd now and I'm beginning to close the gap on Middlesbrough. The only regret is that  I dropped those 15 points in the first nine games, considering I've only dropped 13 points in the 18 games since.


Also Mirko Antenucci, who couldn't buy a goal last season, is the top goalscorer in the league.


And I have the most clean sheets.

How to get the tactic.

Visit this link. Download the zip file and then copy the files into the tactics folder of Football Manager 2015 in your documents.


Then go into the game and create new tactic. Set a standard formation first, because they're awkward like that. Then click the drop down menu beside the formation thingy and go to manage tactics, where you can then upload the Eriksen tactic from your laptop.
