Below you'll find our FM22 Tactic Testing Table. For each FM22 Tactic in our database there are one or more tests that have been carried out using the Tactic in Football Manager 2022. For each test you can see which team it was used with, the results in terms of wins, defeats, goals scored and conceded. You can also see if the test was carried out by manually playing the game or holidaying through and leaving everything to the assistant.

The "ME" field stands for "Match Engine". The Match Engine in FM22 is regularly updated and patched and this affects how effective each Tactic is in Football Manager 2022. We aim to get all Tactics retested after every patch to re-asses how good they are.
