FMD's 5-2-3 Narrow

A smashing tactic created by our friends over at Football Manager Debate.

This tactic created by FMD is build to be devastating in transition and utilise set-pieces with goals coming from throw ins, corners and free kicks.


  1. Have pacey Strikers with decent heading.
  2. For set-pieces, place your best headers & jumpers in the target positions.
  3. I switch between 'play through the middle' and not. Also the same for 'pass into space' and not.

PLEASE JOIN Football Manager Debate (FMD) group on Facebook for all things FM.

If you like any elements of this tactic, please leave a comment or review the tactic on Steam.

I hope you enjoy and i know it won't be for everyone.
