The Best Near Post Corner Routine in Football Manager 2022

Football Manager guide on how to properly execute near port corner routine in Football Manager 2022.


Anyone who’s involved with the FM community knows how potent a good near post corner routine can be. Even after SI nerfed the near post corner in FM22, they’re still the most effective and reliable way to get goals from corners. However, have you struggled to find success from this, or just don’t get the hype? This guide will show you how to execute a near post corner properly to ensure you’re not just wasting your time, and can finally have that goal threat of a centre-back reach the numbers you always knew he could.

Wrong-Footed takers


Near Post Routine Delivery

First, you need to make sure you’re getting the right delivery into the area. Obviously, you’re going to be telling your taker to aim for the near post, but there’s more to delivery than where you’re aiming it. To make the most of a near post routine, you need an in-swinging corner. That means having a left-footer taking corners on the right side, and a right-footer taking corners on the left side. 

If a player is either footed, set him to take corners on one side and go to your corner screen, if the delivery is in-swinging that’s perfect; if not, you’ll need to pick a different taker. This is absolutely crucial, and almost more important than a player’s corner rating. If it’s a choice between an in-swinging delivery from a player whose corner rating is 13 or an out-swinging delivery from a player whose corner rating is 15, pick the in-swinger every time.

Strikers to the far post


Corner Routine Near Post Striker

Opposition defenders - especially early in the season - are naturally drawn to mark your strikers at set-pieces. This is especially true if your striker is a star player who’s being specifically marked in open play. With that in mind, you want them out of the way, so send them to the far post. This also has an added bonus of having your best finishers available to pounce on any rebounds or knockdowns, making sure they then have a great opportunity from close range if your near post header doesn’t hit the target.

On a side note, if you find your near post headers aren’t hitting the target and you need someone to take advantage of knockdowns and rebounds, set an attacker with high bravery to lurk at the far post. They won’t attack the delivery, rather they’ll wait at the far post for a loose ball to fall in their general direction. In practice, I’ve found this can be anything in the six-yard box. High bravery is absolutely crucial here, he can’t be afraid to put his body on the line for the easy opportunity.

Best header to the near post


Corner Routine Near Post Attack

This sounds obvious, but you need to make sure it's the right player every time you set up your set-pieces. You need high jumping reach, aggression, bravery and heading, and ideally at least 185cm tall. This could be any of your defenders, a DM, a CM, it doesn’t really matter as long as it's not a striker. These positions aren’t usually marked so tightly by default and can escape the attentions of the opposition for an easy chance.

Final Thoughts


That’s really all there is to it. If you make sure to follow these steps, you’ll be scoring near post corners for fun, and you’ll finally see what all the fuss is about.
