Football Manager 2023 Tactics - A PERFECT 4-3-3! USING DEPTH & WIDTH! FM23 TACTICS
Creating perfect tactics in #FM23 can be a bit daunting, but in this Football Manager 2023 video, I breakdown how I created a PERFECT 4-3-3 using Width and Depth in the hope it helps others to be able to create their "perfect" tactic from scratch. In the video, I showcase the results I got with Corinthians, my method at looking at the squad and recognising it's strengths, creating the tactic and lastly, we play a match to see how the tactic plays out in Football Manager 2023.

Good width and depth provides the player on the ball with all around support so that there are options to play the ball forward, square or back. The more options a player has, the less likely they will lose the ball. Creating depth means spacing out up and down the field. You're attempting to pull and draw defenders out of position. This allows us to play through the lines with a pass or create space for the player on the ball to progress via carry or pass.

Creating width means spacing out side to side on the field. Good width provides opportunities to attack on either side of the field and up the middle of the field. This creates space horizontally - think wingers hugging the touchline, this pulls defending full-backs away from their central defenders creating space in-between the channels. This allows for attacking midfielders to move into the channels - half-space.

    really interesting formation something I will have a look at for doesnt look ''pretty'' as a formation on the tactic screen, but the concept is well thought out and sound. Great idea
