Football Manager 2023 Tactics - GYR - 4231 SWANSALONA V3 FM23
Tactic Breakdown Video
Check out the video review of the tactic and test results including a breakdown of the team roles/instructions below

To hear about future releases join my Social Media channels.

Any questions message me on Discord or Twitter and let me know how you do in your saves with the tactic.


All tests were done by holidaying the season.
When managing make sure you focus on building tactical familiarity, managing player fitness and don't be frighten to make changes to tackling midway through a game if you are picking up yellow cards

If you want to buy me a beer to say thanks for the tactic it would be much appreciated -
Thank you to those that have already

    Cheeks tactic. One of the worst. Used with Leverkusen and Atalanta. Getting 3 put past me from Heidenheim at home and Cremonese. First three games with Leverkusen, 3 red cards because of the aggresiveness of the settings. Maybe this works for great teams like PSG, Real etc. but Europa League level teams this just does not work for me. Never using it again.

    Very very strong tactic. Started using with Gillingham midway through my first season in League 2 whilst in midtable and ended up finishing 2nd.
    Got promoted to the Championship in the next season and then finished 3rd in the Championship with a squad that should have been relegated.
    Can be hit and miss against much stronger teams though, you might win 2-0 or lose 6-0.

    the v2 was good but this one is much better, better defensively too on counter attacks

    Really good tactic for strong teams.
