Football Manager 2021 Tactics - Super Attacking 4-1-5 // Insane Striker Stats
Hello guys, i shared this tactic first version on the fm18 ( you can check out here). With same mentality i created a recreation on the fm21. My tactical understanding is based to this "All goals must come from strikers." I try to keep this in the foreground in every tactic i create, and this tactic fits exactly that description.


Player attributes:

Defenders: Must be good tackling, marking and passing

Midfielder: Must be good passing, vision, physical attributes(pace, stamina, etc.) and tackling

Inside Forwards: Must be good flair, dribbling, passing

Strikers: Must be good finishing, dribbling, flair, passing, pace,



This tactic is all about scoring more goals than against. Because of that your defensive performance can be bad.

I also recommend that you only use this tactic for matches where you are home or favorite.

throughout the season 53 GAMES 201 GOALS!






Icardi, Right Striker

Mbappe, Central Striker

Kean, Left Striker

Neymar, Left IF

Di Maria, Right IF

Verratti, Midfielder

Draxler, Sub Player

Raphinha, Sub Player

if you like this tactic, you can follow my YT channel. i will starting soon with quality contents.


I've tested this tactic again on my YT channel and this time Mbappe scored 90 GOALS!

I said it was for elite teams, I tested it with PSG again in my test video on my youtube channel and this time Mbappe scored 90 goals

    I don’t suppose someone could be a great help and post screen shots of the tactical instructions And player instructions in English as I play on FM 21 touch on iPad and I don’t currently have access to a laptop or PC so can’t download it

    @Alp52 - Keep up the good work! Don't take notice of the negative comments. You never claimed this tactic was great or good, you took your time to post a tactic for the community who have the option to try it out, they don't have to if they don't want to.

    Hopefully you aren't discourage from sharing again

    @GfxJG - there's no need for that bro. At least give him tips or something constructive. As in the description, it says "I also recommend that you only use this tactic for matches where you are home or favorite" BUT you decided to do a holiday test. If you're going to criticise, at least use the tactic in the way it's meant to otherwise it's not helpful

    I never said you claimed it to be "the best in the world". But this literally performs worse than the default tactics, that's almost an achievement in itself. But hey, if all you want is to score goals and break records, don't let me stop you.

    thx for feedbacks

    Thank you for your feedback.

    and bro, i didn't say this tactic is the best in the world. i told you to use this tactic in elite teams. because we don't totally care about defense and we just focus on scoring.

    Alright, so because I'm apparently invested in this now (and I do genuinely like attack-heavy tactics), I ran a quick multi-team sim while I was out grocery shopping. Here are the results, in the structure: Team - Expected League Position - Actual League Position - Top Goalscorer (all comps).

    Atlético Madrid - 3rd - 5th - Moussa Dembélé (44)
    Sporting CP - 3rd - 3rd - Tiago Tómas (27)
    Sampdoria - 11th - 14th - Fabio Quagliarella (22)
    Freiburg - 10th - 18th (rock bottom) - Ermedin Demirovic (31)
    Nimes - 17th - 20th (rock bottom) - Moussa Koné (20)
    Brighton - 17th - 19th - Danny Welbeck (27)

    So, I hate to break it to you, but this is NOT a good tactic. It may score goals, but it concedes SO MANY, a default tactic would literally have performed better. Not a single team performed above expectations.

    As stated, it works because you are PSG, a ridiculously overpowered team, not because this tactic is good.

    This tactic is so broken and I love it lol, Been winning games 6-0, 7-1, 5-1 etc

    I'm using the Retro Database ( currently 2027 ) and playing as Rangers and this tactic just blows teams out the water, after 1 season, one of my strikers beat the record number of goals in a season ( Old record was 46 ) his goals where in the 60s

    And this is just letting the game auto pick the squads, haven't went with what's been posted above for the best in each role

    So yes it will work on smaller teams, I'm just not sure about low league teams etc, you just need to test it out

    I like how people ask if you've tried other teams, yet you STILL decide to test it with PSG AGAIN instead of a different team... Makes me think it's not that great except with an already world-class team tbh.

    I said it was for elite teams, I tested it with PSG again in my test video on my youtube channel and this time Mbappe scored 90 goals

    SI need to sort this unrealistic stuff out this would never work irl
  • GfxJG's avatar
    Have you tested this with other teams? I mean, it's great that it does well with PSG, but let's be real, my nan could do well with PSG...
