I have been playing for a while, and after taking Barnsley to CL victory I think I understand most of the game. :-) However, I question the tactics in this game. 433, 4132, 442 ... It doesn't matter, the games turn out the same. I therefore decided to do a little 'experiment' , and made a tactic with only one defender and a bunch of forwards. The result? 160-something goals in 33 matches and cruising through FL2. Although it's fun to win 7-0, I hope you can look into this for future versions. The way it is now, this game is simply about getting the best keeper you can afford and a bunch of strikers. That's a bit disappointing. But otherwise it's a great game, and I really enjoy it. :-) Just my few cents.
Please by all means forward me the save game containing this 'uber' tactic - I'd be intruiged in seeing it as I'd have thought that'd be near impossible considering how the match engine works unless you've got a team which is FAR better than those around you (ie. uber star players vs moderate players).
