Best Formations and Setups

Football Manager 2021

To find your non-league club all the way through the leagues or to only dominate Europe with an existing top club, following these tactics can be your way to move forward in the game. You’d find excessive options to explore here. Starting from possession-based football to high pressure to counter-attacking, depending on how to play. 

The Gegenpress: would suit any team which has high stamina players. You’d want your players to have 15+ stamina as this tactic is high intensity. Many of your goals will come from the Inside Forwards either cutting inside and either bending it round the goalkeeper or playing it to your striker.

Vertical Tiki-Taka: you’d choose this formation if your team is lacking decent wingers. It utilizes Wong backs who can bomb up and down the side of the pitch. For which you’d definitely need wing-backs with high stamina, forwards with high finishing, and an excellent playmaker in the middle of the park. You’ll want at least one to be a Ball playing defender, better to have two. Next, have a final defender with a cover instruction to ensure he can sweep up balls that get behind the defensive line. In order to meet through balls into the box before the opposition forward gets afoot to them, keep the sweeper-keeper on support or attack.

Fluid counter attack: this one is more of an outside of box tactic, that’s used as a counter-attacking setup. The aim is to let the opposition have most of the possession but when you win it back the wingbacks bomb forward and support the attacking front three trios. Playing high line with an offside trap means you are liable when playing against fast forwards. The goal is to win back possession before your opponent leaves their half. The tactic allows you to break away at speed and strike back before the opponent knows what has hit them.

Wing play: this one should work well with the lower league teams. The idea is to maintain the structured formation when not in possession of the ball, before winning it back and shipping it out to your wide players. The combination of defensive wingers with three center backs and defensive midfielders means you’ll have more than enough men behind the ball. You’ll be able to get the ball forward for your strikers to run in behind with the higher line of engagement and slightly more direct passing.
