Football Manager 2021 Tactics - 4-3-3 The Kremin Way
This 4-3-3 was developed over 14 seasons in my save taking over Kremin Kremenchuk in the Ukrainian Second Division, and we eventually broke up the duopoly of Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kyiv to win the Premier League. Also got to the Europa League final and lost to Bayern Munich in my final season.











In terms of player instructions the biggest thing is the split block set up. I have never found it useful to have the entire team closing down a lot, especially defenders as they get dragged out of position and leave gaps for the AI to exploit. The front five are therefore set to close down, tackle harder and mark tighter, with the defensive five left as standard. The roles are fairly balanced with nothing too specialist, and there are a couple of positions which I have used a variety of roles with success:

GK - Sweeper Keeper Support

DR - Full Back Attack (shoot less often)
DL - Full Back Support (shoot less often)
DCR - Central Defender Defend (take fewer risks)
DCL - Central Defender Defend (take fewer risks)

DM - Deep Lying Playmaker Defend (take more risks) / Ball Winning Midfielder Defend
MCR - Advanced Playmaker Support (more direct passes, close down more, tackle harder, mark tighter) / Box to Box Midfielder Support (close down more, tackle harder, mark tighter)
MCL - Mezzala Attack (more direct passes, close down more, tackle harder, mark tighter)

AMR - Inverted Winger Support (close down more, tackle harder, mark tighter)
AML - Inverted Winger Attack (close down more, tackle harder, mark tighter)

ST - Advanced Forward Attack (close down more, tackle harder, mark tighter)

I have a second version of the tactic which is mirrored, so the left full back is on attack along with the right inverted winger. I have found that it works best to have the mezzala on attack on the same side as the attacking inverted winger so the centre mid roles are also flipped. All team and player instructions are the same:



You could push the defensive line up to higher if you have quick enough defenders, but I wouldn't go to much higher.

Opposition instructions try to force our opponents out wide, and mirror the split block press on their defence and midfield, whilst being more cautious against their attacking players:

    @Jayt2991 Hi, thank you for your tactic. Do you have any other tactics for team like Kremin? Because right now I'm playing in the same league (Persha Liha), but for another team (MFC Mykolaiv), so that's why I am asking. Or maybe you have any tips, training schedules, etc..?
    Anyway thank you for this tactic!
