Football Manager 2023 Tactics - Overachieving UNDERDOG 4-5-1 FM23 Tactic!
Today, I bring you my latest creation. My 4-5-1 Underdog tactic, that is purely designed to be used with lower table/mid table sides in your division. Do I think it would work with powerhouse sides? Yes. But the intention is to grind out results whether that be draws or tight wins with smaller teams and get the results you do not expect.

The football will not be pretty, but it will get you results which is exactly what you need as a manager. The 5 in midfield worked really well having them all together and not pushed up, making it easy to win the ball back in that area of the field and break on some lethal counter attacks.

We tested purely with underdog sides, to get accurate results. As testing a "Underdog" tactic with Man City and PSG will not give us a idea of how this actually performs.

Testing Phase -

Wolves (Predicted 15th)

Palace (Precited 14th)

Clermont (Predicted 18th)

Frankfurt (Predicted 6th)

    Nice work guys! I've been getting my Romanian side into the Champions League but getting thrashed by the bigger teams. Wondering if this would be a good one to use when play the City's and Madrid's?
