Tactical Development Workshop
This is NOT another Football Manager tactical guide. We focus all of our attention on tactical ISSUES and tackle them in the form of LESSONS. Buckle up and let's get the ball moving!
For season #1 we pick Sunderland and familiarize ourselves with the squad. LESSONS 1-4 will deal with all the tactical ISSUES that arise throughout this season. Grab the game save at the end and get on with the given exercise.
Forget everything you have learned about tactics in Football Manager so far. Cross the doorstep of the Tactical Development Workshop as a beginner. A new game and a new perspective.
We look at the defensive end of the pitch and compare the roles which are actually worth utilizing in Football Manager, as well as considering whether we use 2 or 3 central defenders. We also pick the best roles for GK and DM.
Full backs can clinch our advantage in attack and have a decisive role in stopping aggressive opposition wing players in their tracks. We assess all full back roles in FM 2017 and explain what each of them does.
