on FM09 im liverpool, doing rather well, in 2nd with about 4 games left, but i have a problem, against the big teams, home or away, i ALWAYS dominate them and take a 1-0 lead, i still dominate them then they ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS score in like the last minute with a wonder goal from a centre half or sumthing to draw 1-1. its getting rather annoying...

also, champs league semi final, beat dynamo kiev 3-0 away and in the 2nd leg (same team tactics as every other game) they batter me 4-0....

whats up with that sheet

This is the same in real world football:
40% of goals are scored in the last minutes of the first (20%) or second (20%) half

Reason behind this (real life) is loss of fitness and concentration of some players before HT and FT.
And also the other team going all out on the attack only the last minutes when looking for a goal to avoid getting countered to soon in the game.

Must be that the ME does a good job of reflecting this.

Beware when the opponents team change their formation to 4-2-4. I try to ignore this but this is the tweak that changes the scoreline.

The best way to avoid that is... to score 2 or more goals. Seriously - I've noted in FM that when I start to defend and try to keep my 1- lead, I most likely get punished sooner or later and have to leave with 1-1 draw. But if you maintain your own game (especially when you ARE dominating midfield) then you should keep that going and not punish your defenders for conceding a goal, but punishing your strikers for not using numerous chances they probably had during this game.

Your problem there is probably the team talk. Are you only getting three choices "Wish luck", "Warn against complacency" or "Expect a win", best bet if so is to go with none, and gee up your team at half time if needed. I find team talks after a big first leg win particularly useless.

I find that when a team goes 4-2-4, I tweak my instruction to normal play and counter attack that I tend then to have them on the back foot forcing them to change but wasting their time.

Im fine with last minute goals, however i seem to be conceding goals within the first 3 minutes after kick off a lot.

Typical Man U, they've scored 5 goals in the last 14min :D

It happens in real life, just a day before ManU put away that late winner I lost a game when the clock ran to 96mins and they scored but the clock said there should have only been +3 mins :(
