Football Manager 2023 Tactics - Van Gaal's DOMINANT Netherlands FM23 Tactics (63% Poss)
Today we go over Van Gaal's 3-4-1-2 possession based tactic. He uses this with Netherlands and it has gained some very impressive results.

Some would say his game style is "boring" but for me his main aim is to simply control the game and he believes having the ball does that. I actually believe this is a smart way to play, it is not going to score you loads of goals but what it will do is win you games.

We ran a test (holiday) with Netherlands in the Qatar world Cup 2022 and these are the results.

I would highly recommend checking out this below video to watch the highlights of the cup and also get a more in depth breakdown of the tactic!

    The most boring, unattractive, anti football Netherland play this tournament (together with Belgium from European teams) ...
    Against Equador they got 2 shots and 1 of that shots goes in goal.... I hope Argentina would beat them.
    And once again tactic which running on holiday is not the same when you playin without holiday ...
