Best FM21 Tactics: The Yorkalona 4-2-3-1- Beautiful Football

This is one of those tactics that a fan of the channel sent to me and alot of people have raved about it being brilliant and most of all, very attractive to watch as the creator wanted it to play like the Barcelona of old and really bring out that incredible passing game.

About TookaJobs Tactic Testing

Hi everyone, I’m TookaJobs and if you already know the sort of content I do then that’s fantastic and thank you for watching, if not then don’t worry because here’s the lowdown.

Basically I pick, choose or get recommended to do content on tactics that have made there way to the internet for everyone to enjoy and with it I supply all the necessary instructions to successfully replicate the tactic if you are unable to download with visual aid in my videos so you can manually import them yourself, but if you can download it then happy days…BIG TIME SAVER.

I always pick certain teams to be included in my tests in the form of top dog teams eg. (PSG, MAN UTD, DORTMUND) along with underdog teams eg. (FULHAM, STUTTGART, RC LENS) and many more variations in other leagues as well to show how the tactic does on a variety of different level teams in different divisions.

In order to do the testing for the large variety of teams taking part I put the pressure all on the assistant manager and only lock in the tactic then SIM SIM SIM all the way to the end of the season and then go through all kinds of stats, results, data and league positions that will hopefully show you the capabilities of the tactic and in turn will lead you to have a fantastic save in your game.


BUT BEWARE – As with all testing this is only a possibility of the results you can expect as everyone plays different and RNG (Random number generator) must be taken into consideration.

Best FM 2021 Tactics Shape & Instructions

As you can see from the instructions this is a fluid Tika Taka tactic that will surely make Barcelona proud. You are playing short, fast, possession based football and in the final third you should notice a high number of players in the central areas ready to pull the trigger when the moment comes. for all the player instructions and set piece instructions please follow the video

FM 2021 Tactics Test Results

With the results you get exactly what you expected with the big teams but its the underdogs that really did well with this tactic and considering its a high pass and how important movement, passing and vision are to this tactic they still did exceptionally well. In terms of player performances you can see that you get a few players from each team entering the top 3. The video does go through more stats and numbers and we also have a look at the premier league and a few lower leagues in England to see how they got on and SPOILERS……MK DONS SMASHED IT.

Test Stats



These are the two stat pages taken from the French league test and its normal in terms of top team doing alot better that the underdogs but what is great is the amount of goals both teams managed to concede…In all competitions 39(top team) and 50 (underdog) goals conceded is a fantastic result


Pro’s, Con’s and Final Thoughts

This is one of those tactics that you have to play to fully realise the beauty in it as many comments on my discord have Football Manager players loving the fact that sometimes its not all about unrealistic broken tactics and enjoying the football you see is just as if not more important that robotic wins. From the creator himself in his own words ”I wanted to create a tactic that I can watch, that I can build a team into and have that excitement of bringing the way Barcelona used to play into other teams around the world and with this tactic I believe I have achieved that. Xavi and Iniesta are massive inspirations on how this tactic works and the Documentary Take the ball Pass the ball was instrumental in the creation of this tactic” From Mike Bridle.


  • Beautiful passing football offering visual entertainment
  • In the test all teams did well
  • Created by a fan, for the fans


  • Must have a good passing team for better effectiveness
  • One striker will sometimes mean less goals
  • Could struggle in the premier league with lower teams
