The best low league tactics in Football Manager 2019
Looking for the best FM19 tactics for low league teams, we have found one made by NikFM. The best low league formation is 4-3-3 narrow and it is the one that should produce many goals and many chances.
Not usual for hard, solid low leagues, but doing the opposite from expected can bring you glory. Great thing is that you don’t need technical strong players (they probably play in the higher leagues or in the local bar) for this formation, instead you should look to physically dominant and strong players.
Great low league attacking approach tactic
4-3-3 Narrow formation is attacking one from the start. To utilize most of this NikFM tactic, you need to set some attacking options. You should focus on playing through the middle because there most of your players are.
You will be playing out of defense, low league tika taka. Approach play should be played into space with more direct passing. This kind of tactic means you will have the ball in your feet most of the time, so tempo should be set to lower.
In the final third games are won or lost. You should try with low crosses and here is where your wing backs must do most of the job. When you lose the ball, play counter-press to earn it back as soon as possible.
In transition, when you get a ball, play counter. As Liverpool, try to kill the opponent with pressing and counter-pressing. When your team is defending, play your defensive line as high as possible with offside traps. It will narrow the playable area and you will get the ball back soon.
How to select players for this 4-3-3 FM19 tactic?
Starting from defence, here we found two may be the most important players in this formation. These are wing backs with attacking duty. They need to be fast with great crossing as they will most of the time try to find strikers from the wing.
If you have some money in your transfer budget, spend it on wing backs. Central defenders will be on much pressure with this attacking tactic as they will have a lot of space to cover. You should set one on the stopper and the other one on defensive duty. Beside defending ratings, also look for pace and acceleration when buying central defenders.
In the midfield, we have two CMs with automatic duty so they will help to attack and defence evenly playing from box to box. And the third is CM with defending duty who will make sure nothing goes pass him (maybe Gattuso could come out of retirement?).
This attacking tactic in FM19 depends a lot on your three strikers. Central one is a false 9, he will be coming down to receive the pass and connect midfield with attack. On the left side is Poacher and he needs to do only one thing. One small thing and that is score goals. On the right side is advanced forward. He needs to bit creative but with good finishing as he will do both, assist and score.
Playing like this should secure your goals, a lot of chances and a lot of success. Hopefully, it will bring you promotion and you will become your low league team hero!
