For a long time, it’s been OK to not understand tactics in FM – you could still win with the help of good signings and a downloaded tactic. That’s still true to a certain extent, but the times are a-changing; tactics are becoming a key element of playing, as they should, and reacting to in-game situations is something that is becoming more of a necessity than an optional luxury. And as people rush to try and work out where they’re going wrong, they’re finding a lot of incorrect information at one place and a lot of verbose and complicated information at another.
This pack of resources is intended as a sort of gateway to the world of FM tactics. It’s our way of nudging beginners along, so they can enjoy FM more and get their teeth into some great, advanced posts, of which there are many.
The pack contains 6 print-out style which aim to explain the basics of tactics and a further two troubleshooters which can be used to react to in-game situations. It can be seen as a ‘Things you need to know’ but we’ve heard from many experienced FM players who have said that it has helped them too.
