Posted: 29 Jan 2011 11:48 PM PST

Well, Boston United managed to win Blue Square Premier League title in the end. Everybody is happy about that, especially club's board:

Last matches in Blue Square Premier League

These matches were the last in BSP league for Boston. I believe we will never relegate to this league:

You can look through goals of 2 interesting matches of this period at my additional 'pictures & videos' blog:

- Boston – Bath 6:0

- Wrexham – Boston 1:2

The last one was crucial for title winning. Wrexham was leading during the match, but then James Collins managed to score twice providing us with morale raising comeback.

Though the destiny of the 1st position was decided in 2 last fixtures. It was like giveaway checkers. My team made a draw against Stevenage, York lost their match to Fleetwood at all… Then I understood that the title is mine because of huge advantage by goal difference. My players wanted to win the last match against York but poor goal moments realization prevented:

So here is the final table where goal difference matters much:



Boston players and their stats

Worst Boston players

Boston players are the best in the league – that's for sure. Abdou Sall is the most valuable one. James Collins became the leading goal scorer. The most efficient and effective during the 3rd part of season – Toni Silva. He displaced Ismael Fofana from the main squad at AML position. My personal thanks to Abdeltareck Sakali whose efficient actions earned many points for the team.

Now some stats of my and other players in Blue Square Premier League:

Preparing for League 2…

The preparation for the next season has already started. Actually I started with evaluation of players' strength in League 2. The analysis gave me the information that there is no large distance between League 2 and BSP League. Its clubs are somewhat stronger but I feel we should promote next year again. Though the current squad is not tough enough and should be strengthened perceptibly.

The other thing is that I was impressed by the best League 1 clubs. Don't know how to compete with them if I promote in the next season as well. Anyway it's a matter of future. Now I should be concentrated at League 2. It's not an easy task to beat the top clubs in this league…

Football Manager 2011 Tactics

Posted: 25 Jan 2011 10:10 PM PST

Dear readers, finally you can review my Football Manager 2011 tactics used Boston United story. Pay attention that explanation of tactical approaches and the download link are located in the end of the post.


Football Manager 2011 tactics formation

This formation can be called either 4-3-2-1 or 4-3-3. Whatever. What I like about it is an intention to rule the pitch getting more possession than opponent. 3 central midfielders together with Short passing style are the key feature for gaining possession.

Another nice thing I like is, for sure, two wingers with roles of inside forwards. They are the spirit of attacking force in this formation.


Team instructions

Team instructions in my FM 2011 tactics

As I described the tactical approach, it's important to hold the ball possession. Therefore short passing style was chosen. It helps to provide more accurate passes between players.

Fluid philosophy gives some freedom to players. I would like to trust my players during match. Of course, it obliges to form squad more carefully signing smarter players with good mental skills.

Take a look also at the Set Pieces part. My tactics provides high opportunities to score goals from corners in Football Manager 2011. Corner taker passes the ball to the far post where 2 central defenders wait for it with instructions:

- Attack far post

- Stand on far post


Player instructions

Goalkeeper (Sweeper Keeper)

Goalkeeper instructions in FM 2011 tactics

I like more goalies who can secure their defensive lines. It's important if attacking style is chosen. Therefore Sweeper Keeper role was chosen for this tactics.


DLC (Limited Defender, Stopper)

DLC instructions in FM 2011 tactics

Limited defender with Stopper duty. Tackle balls and take care of defensive line – main targets of this player.


DRC (Limited Defender, Cover)

DRC instructions in FM 2011 tactics

Almost the same as previous DC but with Cover duty. It means this defender should cover errors of the second DC. This is the reason the very best defender has to be used at this position.


DL, DR (Automatic)

Left/right defender instructions in FM 2011 tactics

Classic full backs with Automatic duty that changes depending on a team's strategy (attacking, defensive). Defenders with good Pace, Acceleration, Tackling and Crossing should be used here.


MC (Ball Winning Midfielder, Support)

MC instructions in FM 2011 tactics

Ball winner, king of pitch's centre. This is the case when defensive attributes are even slightly more important than attacking ones. High tackling, determination and good speed are very demanded from a player at this position.


MLC (Central midfielder, Support)

MLC instructions in FM 2011 tactics

Classic midfielder who should have high levels of Decisions, Technique, Passing, Work Rate, Teamwork and so on. Well, I think everybody used this type of midfielders in the centre. So there is no need to explain Улыбка


MRC (Advanced playmaker, Support)

MRC instructions in FM 2011 tactics

We've just seen MLC having Central Midfielder role. Prepare for assymetry in roles!Пламенный привет  MRC performs role of Advanced Playmaker supplying the attacking trio with good balls. High Passing, Creativity, Technique, First Touch, Flair, Teamwork, Decisions are necessary. Truly important player in this tactics.


AML/AMR (Inside Forward, Attack)

Inside forwards instructions in FM 2011 tactics

Attacks through flanks works very well in Football Manager 2011. Two my wingers became the motor of all attacks. Inside forward role with Attack duty allows to achieve this effect. High speed abilities, Dribbling, Off the Ball demanded. As well as Finishing and Composure because players at these position have scoring chances very often.


FC (Poacher)

FC instructions in FM 2011 tactics

Central forward will score most of the goals. Since the previous version of Football Manager I prefer to use Poacher role. It seems the most efficient for me if you want a striker to score goals permanently. Good poacher's attributes set: Finishing + Composure + Anticipation + Off the Ball + Balance + Technique + Pace.


Tactical approaches

Football Manager 2011 is a complicated game. It's not enough to set up one tactics for all matches without any change. Some people even use several different tactics trained during Match Preparation (and it works!). I prefer leave formation the same and tune tactical approach during match using team instructions and touchline shouts.

Let's examine several match cases.

Your team needs to score a goal

In this case I do one of the following actions:

- set Control strategy. Controlling ball in more creative way and pushing higher defensive line often helps to score a goal.

- set Attacking strategy + Get Ball Forward shout + Work Ball Into Box shout. The 1st shout allows a ball not being delayed at your pitch's half, the 2nd reduces amount of long shots produced by the 1st shout and Attacking strategy. Long shots go off the target too often. I think it's a very good tactical approach.

- shout to Hassle Opponents if you want your team to get the ball quicker. If referee is not strict, use also Get Stuck In shout.

- find the most weak players in opponent's formation. Middle or flank? Set Exploit The Flanks or Exploit The Middle as a result of this analysis.


Your team needs to hold a score

- set Contain strategy + Pass into Feet + Retain Possession + Clear Balls to Flanks. In the very end of the match you can make a Play Even Safer shout if it's necessary to save the score but opponent's team is very dangerous.

- set Counter Attack strategy. Sometimes it's really efficient in this case because your team will bring a ball to opponent's half and score goals from time to time that should lighten a pressure.

- use Drop Deeper shout.


Your team plays against very strong opponent

This is really special case when you understand that you team will loose a game. But sometimes miracles happen. And we can do miracles trying to tune tactics with these hints:

- Set Counter Attack strategy + Pass into Space + Exploit The Flanks. It can result in one or two goals in case if you have quick wingers.

- Don't use Hassle Opponents shout because every your player will use pressing more. It's dangerous because they will loose positions. Instead try to profit from Opposition instructions. Set Hard tackling and Closing Down on opponent's central midfielders disallowing them to make dangerous passes to forwards.

- Try to win ball possession if it's possible by means of these touchline shouts: Pass into Feet + Retain Possession + Play Narrower + Exploit the Middle. It can be efficient tactical trick sometimes even with very strong teams.
