Football Manager 2022 Tactics - FM22 OP Corner Routines (CB wins Golden Boot!)
Nathan Coker shared this corner trick on Twitter the other day (November 12th).

This is what he shared:

Ballon d'Or won with van Dijk. 41 goals in 57 games, near post corners are absolutely ridiculous.

And he also showed how the corner routine works:

Put your more dominant CB attacking near post and stick your other CB on the GK, don't need too much in the box so you're good if they try counter.

So we put that to the test, to see if we could get similar results.

VVD scored 42 goals through the season!

Jake put together a quick video to showcase what happened.

Isn't this borderline gamebreaking? Do you have a more effective corner routine?

    I have watched it but I want to know what did you do?

    If you're interested in it - Jake from FM Scout did a video on it:

    Did you put Courtois on Near Post?

    And was Kroos your taker for both sides?

    For anyone having doubts about this...

    Downloaded it and put it in my set pieces folder but doesnt show up in the game any ideas why ?
  • wise90's avatar
    Anyone can tell us how to install? Thank you!

    Yeah, tried this and can confirm that its completelely OP - my CB Milenkovic who is 195 has been scoring goals like crazy and it feels that the only way to stop him is if their nesr post defender is as tall and strong as your CB. Hopefully this gets patched as its truñy match breaking and unreleastic.

    Doesn't work for me.
    Loaded the set pieces. Adjusted all the positions from the video and no goals from the centerbacks.

    Must be so cool when you exploit bugs and cheat in single player game lol
  • maxkolonko73's avatar
    I can't open this file-why?
  • Avila's avatar
    Lenglet just scored a hat-trick from corner kicks, I think this works
  • Romano.338's avatar
    Pretty much what I use and I scored like 2 corners in my season. I'll try it anyway
  • Arvid04's avatar
    I must have misunderstood: I guess it changes the default attack corners?
  • Arvid04's avatar
    The file is also not loaded for me from the folder: set pieces.
  • Elmo_Delmo's avatar
    Can you tell me in which folder to save the file?
  • kfnielsen's avatar
    @DieSpaghettis @Thor: X:\Games\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2022\set pieces
  • Vercetti96's avatar
    @Dostyyyy Make sure the tactic is put in your set pieces folder and not tactics then when on the corners make sure you select Attack on corners then try to load the tactic as there isnt a defend tactic within it
  • Dostyyyy's avatar
    I cannot load the file as well. is .fmf format a valid one for corner routine? when I try to load a file, even in different folders, nothing is there. thx
  • Stam's avatar
    @DieSpaghettis @Thor: Load the file in your set piece attack corner routines area.
  • Thor73200's avatar
    Where do I put this in my current game
  • kfnielsen's avatar
    @MacZidane Is u don't like don't add it
    Simple as that
  • Stam's avatar
    @MacZidane: It's a very basic routine really. One CB attacking near post & the other CB on the GK. Isn't that common practice in real life too? It's just seems to be OP in the current match engine.
  • MacZidane's avatar
    Why on earth would anyone want to add this into their game?
  • DieSpaghettis's avatar
    Don't know why but it's not visible when i try to load the file.
