Football Manager 2017 Tactics - VikingDan's 4-4-2 Diamond - Lower league to Premier League
As seen on stream!

This is the culmination of 6 years work (in game).

It's a narrow 4-4-2 Diamond, designed to maximise chance creation and control of the game, whilst remaining solid in defence, helping to mask any weaknesses in your team.



With this tactic I managed to get Stockport County promoted from non-league to the Premier league in 6 years.



Each year, we were one of the favourites for relegation, but managed to massively over-achieve. Almost always having one of the lowest wage outlays in the league.



This is the final incarnation of the formation, that got us promoted as Champions from the Championship, and will be used in the Premier League. It has evolved from a formation with less instructions and an attacking mentality, to a counter attack based system.

As such, I cannot guarantee it will still work in the lower leagues, it may be a bit too complex.

All the player instructions and set pieces are set.

Enjoy!
