FM16 Tiki Taka 2-3-2-3 Possession and Gegenpressing Tactic

Football Manager 2016 Tiki Taka tactic, high possession and gegenpressing, play the style of Pep Guardiola.

Without further ado, I shall share with you guys the possession and gegenpressing tactic for Football Manager 2016. This is actually a Barcelona tactic from Pep's era.


One important part of the tiki-taka, is the collaboration of the defense and attacking, as the team is always in possession – in balance – as players will take up the roles of the other, provide cover and support in the ball circulation and the process of regaining possession as fast as possible. Here the transition phase is minimized as much as possible as it is seen as lost time by the help of utilizing an extremely high defensive line which gives you the assumption that the team plays the majority of the match in the opposite half.

Former successful FC Barcelona manager Josep Guardiola, who re-invented the false nine, once said;

“We want to emulate the amount of running players must do. When you win back the ball, there are 30 metres to goal rather than 80. I want Messi as far forward as possible.”

I wanna share this tactic for people like me:
High amount of possession
Comfortable when the ball is in opponent half
Gegenpressing
1 touch passing

TEAM SHAPE


TEAM INSTRUCTION



  • [accordion]
    • TEAM SHAPE
      • The lower tempo is necessary to ensure that the wingbacks gets time to move higher up the pitch. I prefer to keep a narrower shape than them without sacrificing the required width needed in the final third to create gaps.
        Very Fluid - it allows the whole team to press as a compact unit.
        Attacking - If you want to counter-press, you need to get men high up the pitch.
    • DEFENCE
      • Prevent Short GK Distribution - haven't seen much difference with or without.
        Push higher up making sure the team press collectively high up the pitch.
        Close down much more coupled with specific player instructions to close down more often and opposition instructions will ensure that the opponents will have less time to get control of the ball.
        Tighter marking ensures that the players will stay in a close range of his opposite marker, making it more likely to intercept passes.
    • BUILD-UP
      • The short passing play looks to retain possession not taking any necessary risk in your own half.
        Play out of defense ensures that the players will pass their way out of defensive third with short passes.
    • ATTACK
      • Working the ball into the box - I want my team to wait for an opening or work hard to create gaps which they can exploit.
        Low crosses - lack of height in the team.
