It makes me chortle when the bs merchants on here swagger around saying "if only you understood real life football like I do you'd be able to create brilliant tactics like I can".
As you say, because of the balances struck to create a match engine that appears to work over a given number of matches, what worked on one version guarantees constant slaughter on the next. What is good tactical practice on one ME is garbarge on the next. Real football knowledge has next to nowt to do with it. Second guessing the programming foibles (after the last version's foibles) and the fractured logic of the deliberately ambiguous sliders has everything to do with it.
