Football Manager 2022 Tools - FM Lineup Tool - Exclusive Download
Welcome to the official download page of FM Lineup Tool.
I've created this tool - mostly for the FM Players who are short on time - where you can see a lot of information about your team, and the perfect lineup for your tactic (based on player attributes) from a single export file that you make in FM.
Exclusively available from fmscout.com.

People who want to put FM Lineup Tool on other sites, you may link back here but you cannot host any files yourselves. Thank you!

The story behind FM Lineup Tool

If you are like me and struggling when you are new to a team, your assistant rates half your team 3 stars, you go over the players to see their attributes, but one hour later you have lost track of how good someone was and you still don't know which player is actually the best in which position... and you actually don't have the time to study your players, because life has limited your FM gametime... and another evening is gone without playing a single match because you were lost doing things you don't want to spend time on...

Or when you change teams during a career, and the minute after you changed teams you feel your save is ruined, because all the players you are familiar with are gone, and you don't know anyone in the new team, how will you ever familiarize yourself with all the new players and sort out this new squad....

Well for that I've made this tool for myself (and am now opening it up to anyone). It uses no hidden features or data, everything the tool uses is available in FM itself.

It provides you a quick, and easy to understand lineup and information on your team so you can familiarize yourself very easily with new teams. It also makes a lineup for you based on the player attributes and what the game tells is important for the role/position, it actually replaces the manual steps that some people do of making excels or doing the attribute math in your head - because of course if your assistant rates 5 players the same number of stars in the same role, you want to use the attributes that are at your disposal)

Like the quote of my tool says, for me it's the tool "to get to know your squad, best lineup and scouted players in the blink of an eye" and no longer a process that takes to much time (for the way I play the game and for where I want to spend time on... )


FM Lineup Tool Features

There are two different modes the tool supports and shows different info for, normal Club Manager mode and International manager.



Club Manager
  • From a single export of your squad screen (with a view that comes with the tool) you can see all important information of your team, and the best lineup and subs for the tactic you are using.
  • See detail popup of individual players.
  • Filter per position or your entire squad on easy preset filters, and see ranking per position/role.
  • Make an export of your "Player Search" screen (with a view that comes with the tool) and you can see which players will be interesting to sign - also easy to filter with the same filter as in your squad view.



International Manager
  • From a single export of your squad screen (same view that can be used as for club manager) you can see all important information of your national team's selection and the best lineup + subs for the tactic you are using.
  • See detail popup of individual players.
  • Same as for club manager mode, filter per position or filter your entire squad.
  • Make an export of your National Pool or Player search screen to see which player you can consider to call up to the national squad (easy to filter as your own squad).
  • Or even easier, go to the "Selection Changes" page where based on your current squad + national pool export the tool says which players you better remove from your selection and which you should call up. (this is done by making 2 times a best eleven + 3rd best GK = proposal of 23 players to be called up).


Other features
  • You can configure your FM Graphics folder, this will allow the tool to load & show player faces and team logos.
  • You can add your own tactics or position definitions via the Configurator -> Tactics or Positions menu link on top of the tool.
  • The tool comes with view both for Full Fat FM21 and FM21 Touch.

It comes with an auto-updater

Important to know

  • For now the tool only works when the FM language is set to English (UK, not US) or Dutch.
  • Only Euro, Pound and Dollar is supported as currency setting of FM.
  • Check the date format used in the FM exports, you can configure the correct date format in the FM Lineup Tool (by default d/m/yyyy is configured, meaning dates are like 2/12/2003 or 26/4/2005).

How to use the FM Lineup Tool

This how to is also shown on startup (when you open the tool) and can be accessed via Help -> How To. It contains a lot of useful information on how to use the FM Lineup tool.

    Oh and Libero position is missing entirely as a label
  • FightCat's avatar
    Nice tool but I spotted something missing I guess.

    When creating a new role for Defense, the Duty selection are still D, S and A instead of D, St, Co.

    Nice to hear @Joeke

    Great piece of work! It already helped me in a few things! :-)

    @BallWinningFm, I'm afraid the technology the tool is written in does not allow me to do an easy port for mac (or at least not something I'm aware of).
  • BallWinningFm's avatar
    Any chance you could make this available for Mac as well, please?

    "Click tactic slot" means you just click on a player on the field... and on the right hand side it will show details for the position you've clicked :)

    All sounds very promising, is there any scope to be able to change roles on the tactic itself when it appears? Also at the bottom it references click tactic slot for more details, I might be being thick but I can't find the tactic slot
  • DavyDepuydt's avatar
    @CBP that is certainly on the roadmap

    @All: Thereis now a new version live (that comes through the auto-updater) that has views for FM20 (+stability fixes)
  • CBP's avatar
    Really like the look of this, is there any scope to perhaps include in future releases, a best formation for the squad?
  • DavyDepuydt's avatar
    I managed to create the views for FM20, they will be released (probably later today or tomorrow) in a new version

    FYI, people who have added position/role definitions to the tool can sent me the files found in the tools position subfolder and I include them in the next release ([email protected])
  • DavyDepuydt's avatar
    @CAE the views need to have some columns in a certain order, it are views I made specific for this tool... so other views will not work. As I've said I can try and recreate them from FM20
  • CAE's avatar
    I’m not sure of the format of the views, so they may need tweaking, but there are views for FM20 (and FM19) here:

    hey can you do a youtube video about this

  • DavyDepuydt's avatar
    The tool does not come with views for FM20 to export the necesairy data (and I don't think you can import FM21 views in FM20). But as probably the same data is available I can try and create the views for FM20 in the next few days and make it available in the next version

    @vads: I don't see why not. Give it a try and let us know.
  • vads's avatar
    Does this work with FM20?
