Quadruple winning Leeds 442

It's narrow, it's hyper-aggressive, it's the most fun I ever had with the game. Incredible utilization of inverted wingers who end up with unreal stats.

Football Manager 2022 Tactics - Quadruple winning Leeds 442

It's kind of hard to get motivated or excited to play the game after 19 years of playing it, but for me, tactics are the absolute focus of what I look forward to. I tend to mix multiple styles of coaches I like in real life, but mostly I am influenced by what Roger Schmidt is playing. Just over the top pressing and tempo with very narrow attacking shape.

This one is a variation of the formation that got my Bournemouth save on FM20 to 17PL and 16UCL titles in 20 seasons. It's a bit more structured with more creative freedom and with sole purpose to overload the central part of the penalty area so much that you always have a free man outside of it who can cross or cut back.

I've struggled with this Leeds save because I was trying to be so fancy in previous seasons, even though I won multiple UCL's, but WCB made me experiment too much. Anyways it is really important to implement these opposition instructions without an exception.

Advice I can give regarding this one is to personalize as much as you need towards your player's qualities in terms of player instructions or even roles, but to never touch forwards or wingers. They are crucial to stay the way they are. I recommend to allow more dribbling to entire front six in the final 3rd and to never check pass into space in build up. It ruins the tactic entirely.

At the end take a look at this mind-boggling season I had with Leeds in which I not only won everything, but set records in points, goals scored in both PL and UCL.

    Before the updates this tactic worked wonders, any chance of an update on it?!

    really like this tactic, playing as Rangers I was using Ianis Hagi as left inverted winger, and he played so well in the first half of the season that when the January transfer window opened Newcastle were kind enough to give me £53 million and 50% of next sale for him !

    @[email protected] So, the tactic does not have any individual player instructions ?

    Won promotion with Bryne (Norwegian div.1 - Relegation canidate). Won the top leage with Våleranga. Took Luton from relegation in Ch'chip to promotion whin 16 months. The formation and tactics works good. High possession, high scoring. A bit sloppy in defensiv in the begging.

    Does it have any player instructions or set pieces ? I'm planning to use it on my FM 21 save.

    Best tactics i've used so far and i will not look for any other. This is the FM2022 formation nr.1!!. Won league and Carabeo with Newcatle. Lost CL finale. A lot of goal, good at the back( cmpared to others attacking formation). I just leave the opposition to assistant and that works well. Can also put in a DM for a striker and go to cautios or balance the last 10-15 min to secure. @kaiten22 put this on steam as well.

    For some reason I you need to open up pictures in a new tab to be full resolution. I must be dumb since I don't know how to fix that.
