Has anyone recreated Chiefy's tactics with the Nix in FM?
I've had a go on FM23; here's what I've got.
I guess the only thing to cover would be sometimes there are 4 at the back and 3 central midfielders. Not sure how the team instructions change between those two situations though.

I might have to take my laptop down to the training and ask Cheify for some help in setting up a Nix scenario!!

That's class. I feel like he adjusts his setup game-to-game far too much for me to keep up with if I ever did a Chiefy-inspired save haha

Having a bit of fun with league packs in my first real save since FM24. Started off in Afghanistan, then jumped the border to Pakistan for a season (found it so boring I resigned). 

My rep was so low that it took me a while to find a job I wanted, but eventually I found a relegation-threatened team in the German sixth tier. Took them to third in my first season, and after some lower tier Saudi offers I moved up a div to Stadtallendorf who had just been relegated.

Got the boot there within a few months after spending big for fudge all results, but fell on my feet and instantly got the job at Differdange (a top team in Luxembourg) who had fallen on hard times being in the relegation zone in December. Loving it there, pulled clear of the lower table scrap and now challenging for Europe. 

I havent signed any Kiwis just yet, but Stamenic is currently wanted by Bayern, Leipzig and Inter... Chris Wood's winding down his days in the UAE, Alex Paulsen made a big move to Millwall, and Joe Bell is at Olympiakos. Waine, Singh and Cacace still at their original clubs.

Most importantly, though - the Nix only went and won the A-League. After finishing second in 23/24 (hopefully not a sign of things to come), they did the double in 24/25. Nine Kiwis in the starting lineup, and no Aussies (import GK and striker)



edit: needed to fill a void at RB as I challenge for continental qualification, so I've gone and got Callan Elliot! He hadn't been able to make the leap to Europe so had spent the last couple of seasons at Olympic

it's 2026 and Bazeley's just called up Jai Ingham, Moses Dyer and Elliot Collier to the preliminary World Cup squad - only three players under 23 (Bindon, Surman and LKH). Old habits die hard

All Whites drawn in a WC group with Italy, Switzerland and Australia and they finish bottom. Start off with a very one-sided 1-0 loss to the Aussies, get smacked 3-0 by Italy, and salvage a 0-0 draw with Switzerland for our only point. Zero goals scored (Wood having an absolute stinker of a tournament, averaging a 6.4) and Bazeley's out the door.

Only silver lining is the Aussies didn't make it out the group either
