Dominate from Corners in Football Manager 2014

Football Manager 2014  Corner set pieces 14 3 2

It’s time we share with you our corner domination formula for Football Manager 2014. Score more goals from corners easily following this guide.

Corner domination formula is a product of tinkering attacking corner set pieces through each patch that was released for Football Manager 2014. So this will work well with any patch you might be running your FM14, even the latest patch 14.3.0.

In previous versions of Football Manager and even with FM 2014, it was enough to tell your players to cross aim to near post and set your best headers in team to attack the near post.

But with every new patch for FM14, this formula was working less and less, and it came to a point where it didn’t work anymore at all, so something had to be done so that we start banging from corners again.


Attacking Corners Instructions

Corner Taker Instructions

Normally you’ll need to set player with best corner attribute to take your attacking set pieces. Higher his corner attribute is, the better. For best results we advise you to find a player with corner attribute of 16 or higher.

If you have players that can take corners equally good, consider setting left footed player to take the corners from the right side, and right footed player to take the corners from the left side of the pitch. This will reduce percentage of poor crosses from corners and ball going to goal-out right after the cross.


Challenge Keeper Player

Player that is naturally strong and good in jumping and heading will block the oppositions goalkeeper more, and reduce his rushes from the goal line. This is really important!

He won’t score as much, but has the second most important job here. Usually central defenders have the needed attributes for this job, so set your second best DC to challenge the keeper.


Attack Far / Near Post Players

These guys bring in the goods! Make sure you set your best team’s headers to attack these positions. Player that is attacking the Near Post, should be slightly better than the one attacking the far post.

Your near post man will score the most. Even thou the guys from Sports Interactive tried their best to fix this ‘bug’, they didn’t eradicated it completely. So your near post man will still score like a mad man from this position, or in worst case scenario flick the ball to the far post where your second best header is waiting, or in the six yard box where your ‘challenge the keeper’ player is waiting.

And why is the player on the far post important? Because 50 per cent of your crosses will go to the far post, what else. He will either try to aim at goal from this position, or make sure that the ball stays in opposition’s penalty area, where rest of your players will try to put the ball in the back of the net.


Attack Ball From Deep Player

Player you set to attack the ball from the deep should have fairly strong heading and jump reach attributes, but he is not important as your far / near post player, or challenge the keeper player.

He will most probably score in situations if your corner taker fails to deliver the ball to the given post and crosses to centre of penalty area. As we said, not as important, but good to have this kind of player to disrupt opposition's defensive corners instructions.


Go Forward Players

Set two of your players to go forward. This will make the opposition less likely to attack from the counter attack, as more of their players will need to come back and defend from the corner. Which will naturally switch their focus from counter attacking to defending.

Preferably, if you have some tall players, that are not your near / far post man, make them go forward. Opposition will have to take special care of your tall players in their penalty area, which in regard will give more freedom to your near / far post players to head the ball.

Also, these are the players that will score when your Far Post man heads the ball back to the centre of penalty area. So also consider a player with good first touch and finishing as one of your go forward players.


Lurk Outside Area Player

This should be a player from your team that has good Long Shots attribute. He will try to hold on to the ball and prevent opposition team from counter attacking, that is, if he doesn’t try shooting any deflected balls.


Stay Back Players

Two of your players should always stay back, no matter who you are playing against. Usually the full backs will have this duty, that is, if they are not the ones delivering the crosses from corners.

Also, set one player to stay back if needed. This will insure you even more from opposition counter attacks.
