Football Manager 2017 Tactics - Marius 4-3-3 Black Edition FM17 Tactics
Hello! Playing Football Manager is my passion. I played football simulations since LMA manager on Nintendo. With each new version of the game I was more "hooked".

So lets start shall we..

Welcome to the upgraded version of Marius 2017!
You will get two tactics in the download!


Attacking orientated


Possesion orientated


Team instructions

Attacking orientaded

Possesion orientated

Possession tactic will give you more control over the match. Keeping possession around 61-64% in the match.
Attacking tactic will give you more clear cut chances; more goals.
You should switch between the 2 tactics during the match depending on behavior and result.
For example, if you are playing against a weak team, start with the attacking set and when you are happy switch to possession to keep your lead.

Using set of tactics in the match

We started with possesion orienated tactic,its a away match and tricky oponnent.
13 min 1-0 they score,but we were in control keeping the ball and I decided to be patient.
45 min 1-1 we score!
Team talk demanded more from the players and switched to more attacking sistem.
51 min we score!
60 min we score!
73 min we score!
74 min they score right back!
77 min they score again!
Reaction ,back to more disciplined possesion tactic,shout out to them to concetrate more!
Bringing in Keita on field! Telling him that I have Faith in him !
84 min Keita scores!
Game over!
What happened is that AL adjusted to my attacking set up in the second half. If I didnt change it back to more disciplined approach I would probably lose.
So watch your matches!
Be a manager!

This is one of the best tactic sets out there.

Creating this set of tactics consumed lot of time and energy. We compared stats, analysed movements. It was frustrating at times, especially when the new patch came out and messed everything up. In the end, we are very happy with the result. We created two supportive tactics that work well together in the match.

Our creating and testing took 2 months!
Every game was played by our team!
We never simulated a match on holiday!
Presentation of the tactic is one of the longest here!
Hope you will enjoy playing with it as much as we did! :)
