    [Discussion] Tactical Inspiration - What plays/tactics have influenced your TE squad?

    [Discussion] Tactical Inspiration - What plays/tactics have influenced your TE squad?-tactical-inspiration-plays-have-inspired-you.jpg

    Hey everyone,

    Do you have a play or tactical decision that has inspired your Top Eleven club?

    They're the plays you never forget - the ones you can describe with vivid detail years after witnessing it for the first time. They're the plays that encourage you to try a new formation with your club or to train up strong players in the same positions.

    Have a favorite? Let's see, hear about or watch yours!

    Well as an AC Milan fan I have always loved the days of Ancelotti and his "Christmas Tree" formation. He also used different forms of 4 4 2. He had Pirlo and I had Svrcek, he had Kaka and I had Stevic.
    In TE is kinda different as you have to go with what you have and works rather than what you desire.

    Those Ancelotti Milan teams were truly magnificent.

    Was there one attacking highlight that you can remember that shows off the Christmas Tree formation at its strongest?

    Seriously Sausy, do tactics (what has been input as formation, orders and arrows, and what comes out as outcomes) have enough football sense in this game? For me, there is a lot of nonsense as output, and sometimes there is no output at all as if the game does not want to listen (if you see what I mean). In fact, the game has become very numb and there a lot of cosmetics, and the game goes according to where and what it wants, even if it is against football logic.

    Concerning the question of this thread, I have no main preference for style of play or tactics as I feel that the style or tactics to be used are the ones that should at least be appropriate for the situation to be faced. I will even bench the top performer or what seem to be the star player of my team if I had to based on the situation to be faced as this is the tactical decision. So, what will influence what I will use is the situation to be faced.

    Oh... and don't even speak of trying to mimic football styles of play or tactics as they in real life in Top Eleven because that is not possible. Someone cannot play like Pep's Barcelona, nor someone can play like Alex Ferguson's Manchester United nor someone can play like Ancelloti's AC Milan in this game. It is foolishness to believe you can. Sure you can put a 4-3-3/3-4-3, a 4-4-2/4-4-1-1 or a 4-1-2-1-2/4-3-2-1 as formation and put the appropriate orders but that is all. What would go on the pitch and what would come out in terms of final results are far different from what is expected. Like I said above, there is not much sense.

    CL final against Liverpool, revenge day. Maybe Messi and Ronaldo are the best players overall but for me nothing tops 2007 Kaka'[Discussion] Tactical Inspiration - What plays/tactics have influenced your TE squad?-074-21.png

    During some period, Kaka was indeed phenomenal. He had very good acceleration, passing and shooting. He even played well as as the first man in front (forward or striker). Those are among the nostalgic periods in football for me. Why? Because those were the periods that I was following football closely, I was supporting a team and so on. Also, I 'knew' a lot of football players in different leagues due to Championship Manager 01/02, the internet and also due to the matches and highlights I watched. I also had Fifa 2005 on the original Xbox, where AC Milan and Arsenal were the top teams in the game.
