Football Manager Attribute Spreadsheet

I’m a self-confessed spreadsheet geek and Football Manager addict, so when I stumbled on an opportunity to combine them both, I couldn’t resist… welcome to The FFM Football Manager Attribute Spreadsheet!

What started as a simple spreadsheet for my own use in July 2019, became a project I developed even further and turned into this public download.

But first…

The results this spreadsheet gives are based on what I have found works during my own saves in Football Manager. I can’t guarantee that they’ll work for every team so please don’t always take what it says as golden.


→ Import the FFMAnalysis view into Football Manager (Custom > Import View > FFMAnalysis 2022.fmf)

→ Press CTRL + P and save as a web page in your preferred location

→ Open the FFMAttributeAnalysis 2022 spreadsheet and webpage in Excel

→ Highlight all the player data (everything except the top row and SIGames link) then press CTRL + C

→ Return to the FFMAttributeAnalysis 2022 spreadsheet and select cell B4 on the ‘Base’ sheet

→ Press CTRL + Alt + P, then select the ‘Values’ option

The setup is now complete and the spreadsheet will populate with data


After setting up the spreadsheet by following the installation guide, you are given several pages of data.

Each positional area has its own sheet, which is broken down further into the relevant roles.

Every squad player is given a rating based on how suitable they are for that role.

If the player is a natural in the position the role matches – e.g. ST as a Target Forward, D (R) as a Wing-Back – they will receive a bonus rating

Another way you can view role suitability is on the ‘Overall Rating’ sheet. This shows every player and every role in one place.

→ The yellow cell can be edited to any percentage based on your required levels. Any matching ratings will be highlighted in light purple.

As an example, I find 70% is a good level for high-quality teams playing in Europe

→ The row to the right of the yellow cell shows how many of your squad have above your chosen percentage so you can see where you have the best depth for that role.

→ The column directly below the yellow cell shows how versatile a particular player is and how many roles, based on your percentage, they could comfortably play or even be retrained in if young enough.

Top 5
An ‘at a glance’ view of the top 5 players for each role, separated into sections based on the positional areas.

Player Overview
Type the name, or use the drop-down menu, for one of your squad into the top box and it will pull the most important data from the other sheets into one place.

Squad Notes
There isn’t anything automated about it but it enables you to have a sort of notepad for when you’re dealing with your squad. The columns have been left blank for full customisation.

Football Manager Attribute Analysis Spreadsheet

Progress Tracker Spreadsheet

It’s no secret that I love a good Football Manager spreadsheet, so when I needed a way to track the progress of my Cadbury Athletic FC save it was a no-brainer to make one.

What I didn’t expect, however, was that other people would be interested in having one of their own!

It’s nothing fancy with loads of behind the scenes formulas, it’s a simple sheet that you can update as you progress along the seasons. You’ll have your own way of tracking, but I suggest just changing the cell colour of the achievement as shown in my tweet above.

I’ve left the spreadsheet unlocked so you can change the achievements you’re tracking if you desire, though I do hope I’ve covered most bases and, with the space to track 12 leagues and 12 cups, it should last the length of any long-term save. Be sure to tag me on Twitter in your creations!



Player Development Spreadsheet

The most often requested spreadsheet I get is one for player development and tracking it over the course of a few months or seasons. Whilst this is available in-game, this spreadsheet will give a more streamlined and clearer view of the data.

The spreadsheet was made for FM20 but I’ve no reason to believe it wouldn’t work in other versions. Please try it out and let me know!

Feature Guide

The first 10 sheets in the spreadsheet are where you’ll input the data exported from the game. Depending on how many months/seasons you’re comparing you can use all 10 or just a couple.

The sheets are currently numbered 1-10 but by right-clicking on the tab, you can rename these to anything you want.

FFM Player Development Spreadsheet

Once all the data you require is imported, head to the Development tab. This sheet is where you can compare the progress one of your players has made.

FFM Player Development Spreadsheet

→ Select cell B2 and type in the name of the player you want to track
→ In the data column, type in the name of the tabs you’re comparing

The attribute will turn green if there’s been an improvement and red if it’s declined.

At the bottom of the sheet, you’ll find a chart where you can compare the progress of up to 10 attributes.

In the coloured cells, you can type in or select from the drop-down menu the attributes you’re interested in.
