Football Manager 2017 Tactics - FM17 Tactic: Suk Sam 4-1-3-2

Bournemouth win EPL in first season, no transfer in

First of all, let me show you a screenshot of goals conceded and assists.

Conceded with through pass goals just 6 throughout the whole season.

Conceding from corner kicks was high, so I fixed corner defense.

Bournemouth Results

FM2017 is an injury manager, and keeping players' satisfaction manager. lol

Formation Explanation

I'm very satisfied with fast strikers. just put strikers who are good at complete forward.
they will switch position each other. so their favourite foot is no matter.
individual training : complete forward

ML, MR :
Speed and dribbling are important. just put players who are good winger or inside forward.
they will switch position each other, so their favourite foot is no matter.
when Left footed player is in ML, he will move like a winger.
when Left footed player is in MR, he will move like a inside forward.
individual training : winger
(you should train them with other side too. ex. player who is natural with ML, you should train him with MR - winger)

box-to-box midfielders are good at this position.
individual training : BTB

strong, good header, good defense attribute.
individual training : ball winning midfielder

good pace, acceleration, stamina, work rate, positioning, tackling, marking, decisions, determination, strength
individual training : wingback

he is a very important man to guard your goal line from through passes.
acceleration, good decisions are important.
individual training : DCB

just CB who has better technique and passing than others among your squad.
individual training : BPD

Both CBs need good heading, jumping, decisions, determination, strength, marking, tackling.

You should spend your money first for CBs and strikers.

Cornerkicks : MR, ML

team training


during season

But you have to train match prep. with 'team work' at least 2 months when you buy some new players.



There are 2 versions of this tactic included in the pack.

COUNTER ver. (for away matches and odd favourite to your opposition, or when you feel it's very hard to win)

    Amazing Tactic :) First season ended. Started weak until november, then, no losses till de end of the season. Won the league cup, was promoted to 1st division and lost the cup final against sporting. Playing with a club with 30k budget :) Very good. Best attack of the season.
