Football Manager 2017 Tactics - FM17 Tactic: Pass 2 Win - Goals Galore
Since its almost Christmas, I've decided to upload my spin on the well known Christmas tree formations, but with a little twist.
I've developed the tactic over a couple of seasons at SC Heerenveen.

Keys to success using this formation:
- Have attacking Full Backs, who can cross and shoot.
- Midfielder on playmaker roles, for extra passing and chance creation.
- Narrow tactic, so a lot of short passing around trying to create a chance by either a distance shot or a through ball to the lone striker, but with forward pushing Full Backs to give the tactic/team some needed width.
- Striker with great passing, teamwork and anticipation seems best suited for this tactic.
- Defense can be shady in numbers, so i suggest using physically strong and fast defenders with at least decent positioning.

This is what the tactic looks like on the pitch:

And here are some results i got at SC Heerenveen using this tactic:

An example of the passing leading to a goal video, video got cut short by FM a lot more passing leading up to the moment the video cuts in:

Any suggestions, questions or tips are very welcome, just send me a message or leave a comment.
Goals Galore!
