I say fight fire with fire. I used to start games playing slightly deep, but changed it to play slightly pushed up with closing down on pressing more. Depending on what defenders I have i may play offside as well. I often use the hassle opponents command during matchplay as well.
I'll second that as well mufc-paton. I play at least one quick striker, then set them as target man with supply run on to ball. This coupled with through balls and long balls over the top should lead to a lot of chances
What level are you managing? I manage a club in Level 9, where nearly all DCs are slow and lumbering. Therefore, I play a deep D-line myself and play lots of through balls for my nippy target man to run onto. They'll be acres of space behind the slow defence and I bag loads of goals with this simple strategy. The oppo managers ought to drop their D-lines to counter me, but they don't think of it! (yet).
