Football Manager 2022 Tactics - Smashing Promotions with a 4-1-2-1-2 Diamond
Created with Wrexham in the Vanarama National League and gained four promotions in a row. Huge success in attack, at the back and through set-pieces. We then tested it with Chelsea, Brentford, Sheffield United and Peterborough and the results were surprising.

Playing through the middle, with a postive, short passing style. The front trio combine beautifully.

This is so key to your team understanding this tactic.

Weekly Match prep, including teamwork and match tactics are needed to help the players understand what's going on, as well as Match Review after each fixture.

Do this early and throughout the season and you will see the benefits.

For the individual players, train them for the position they are going to play and the tactic will benefit.
