To follow up on the success from the Possession Master tactic released last week, FM DNA is back with another Football Manager Lower League tactic. This time a 4-3-3- strikerless tactic all about good possession but even better pass completion and making passes count.
Today I’m looking closer at the FM22 You shall not PASS tactic, and why this strikerless system might make wonders for your team, whether you’re playing in the lower leagues or hunting for the champions title.
Learn more about the wonders of the FM22 you shall not PASS tactic below!
About FM DNA’s FM22 ‘You shall not Pass!’ Tactic
The positive tactic with short passing looking to keep possession and making our passes count. Keeping the ball and looking for that 1 key pass that will lead to a goal.
GK is a Sweeper Keeper support and 2 Inverted Wing Backs on support with tackle harder. With 2 Ball Paying Defenders on defend with stay wider and tackle harder.
Ok, it’s another Roaming Playmaker on support. I love this role with the instructions to dribble more/shoot less often/move into channels/tackle harder and mark tighter. With him we have a Box To Box Midfielder on support with shoot less often/tackle harder and mark tighter. Also we have a Central Midfielder on attack with shoot less often/move into channels/tackle harder and mark tighter.
In attack, we have no striker as such. We have an Inside Forward on attack on the left-hand side with shoot less often/sit narrow and tackle harder. In the middle we have a shadow striker with shoot less often/tackle harder and mark tighter. On the right we have a Winger on attack with cross aim at the near post.

What is the Football Manager Lower League Tactical Masterclass?
The Football Manager Lower league tactical masterclass looks at tactical systems perfected for lower league management saves. Here I’ll be creating and testing tactics that will help you to promote through the ranks of the lower leagues, either it’s from second division to first, first to premier division, or you want to use this tactics for a club who are in the relegation battle.
Over the coming months I’m going to create some overpowered tactics for your lower league save. That is not to say the tactics won’t work if you’re a big club but this series we are just concentrating on leagues outside the top divisions. But if you do use it with a top team let us know your results.
