5-3-2 Feyenoord

The 5-3-2 tactic Feyenoord utilized this season (2013/14), also the one the Dutch national team is going to use on the 2014 World Cup in Brasil.

FM 2014 Tactics - 5-3-2 Feyenoord
I recreated the 5-3-2 system Feyenoord used in this season for Football Manager 2014. This is the same tactic the Dutch squad is going to use on the world cup 2014 in Brasil.

"With this system you can build a little more defensive security, while you can also take offensive initiative."

Three centre backs, your backs play high, there are two midfielders who play for the defense, preferably an auditor and a slightly deeper forward, in front of them trequartista and two strikers up front.

This tactic results in a very dynamic style. Players are constantly searching for new ways to beat the defence. Short combinations all the way through the middle or wingbacks with a crazy cross to the strikers.

You can change easily to a 442 formation, with one anchor man, two slightly more controlling midfielders and one up front.

If updated my tactic to reduce the amount of goals against, so far it work. Tactic is called: 532 ALL

    Is there any different instructions and mentality to this tactic?

    Well, it's good to hear it worked well for you!
    Tip, look for wingbacks with a lot of pace and stamina.
    Quick centrebacks will also reduce the amount of goals you suffer.

    Don't worry I'm not a native speaker either.
    Nobody is gonna be a grammarnazi :P

    I have use this tactic with Stuggart in 2017/2018 season. I'm using this tactic during around October, so i didn't train the player with this tactic during pre-season. But, the result is so great. My team prediction only to qualify to European Cup but now, i could manage to win the league. Thank you for create this tactic. Sorry for my bad english.

    Won the Dutch competition and the cup.
    Next season with Arsenal finished second in the premier league just one point behind Chelsea. In that same year I won the Euro cup.

    I'll post the screens in this article.

    For my third season at arsenal I changed the tactic a bit. Just to reduce the amount of goals against me.

    I'll add the updated version as well.
