  1. I know im not going to win every game in my career but when im liverpool and im 6th in the league and my tactics are doing okay why do i concede so many goals against low teams. For example my last 5 games: 4-4 ( 3-0 up against wigan) 4-3 (2-0 up against west ham) 3-3 ( against West brom ) 5-1 (against tottenham) 3-0 ( against sunderland) I'm starting to debate whether the game is just so unrealistic and may go on to play fm12 again or whether it's my tactics im playing 4-1-1-3-1 and its worked pretty well but i haven't kept one clean sheet with my back 4 as Johnson, Kelly, Agger, Skrtel and Reina in goal. Any help on how to alter tactics and training would be great thanks. And also could you tell me if you're having the same problem.
  2. Portsmouth...

    well its not because it is nearly impossible to sign players so u need to use 16 yr olds and stuff.
  3. I know its probably been mentioned before but I have recently started a new save as Portsmouth. They start with -10 points and it is nearly impossible to sign any players so it would be the toughest challenge in my opinion. The aim is to earn promotion in either your first or at least second season and then build your way up to Europa League then Champions League etc. Please post any replies of how you get on and tell me if you think it's a good challenge. Thanks
  4. So I started a new save as an unemployed manager with international football as my past experience. Couple of days into the career I was offered the Hereford United job where I became an instant hit with loan signings like ‘Michael Ngoo’ and ‘Tom Barkhuizen’ two very good young strikers. I was 4 months into my Hereford career and was in 2nd place in the Npower League 2 just behind Crawley Town and had some very exciting games with including a win over Brighton on penalties in the Carling Cup, and an exciting 5-4 victory after extra time against West Brom in the Carling Cup 2nd Round. I was soon linked with managerial positions at Reading and Watford but I turned them down. However, in my next few games my teams form started to drop and I fell into 7th place in the league and hadn’t scored a goal in over 5 games. Gus Poyet was then sacked as manager of Brighton so I decided to put myself forward for the job, they were flattered by my interest and I was named Brighton & Hove Albion manager. After being in charge for only 5 games I had only one victory under my belt, a draw and 3 defeats, I then came to the decision that maybe my career did not stand a chance at Brighton, then the Swansea City job was vacant I was then in pole position to be given the spot and I decided to grasp my opportunity and they offered me a contract to be manager until the end of the season, which I accepted. I joined Swansea City who only had 1 win in 16 games and were in last place in the English Premier League. It was a very tough task to fight in a relegation battle and survive but I was very confident. My first game as manger was against Stoke City at The Liberty Stadium in front of my own fans and I got off to a flying start with a 5-1 victory, then I faced Tottenham again in front of my own fans where we won 3-1. I then had another big test against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and with a 2-0 victory at half time the game changed in the last 10 minutes with goals from Torres and an equaliser from Ramires, I was only able to gain a point. However, I enjoyed a big win against Man City where I won 3-1 and was able to get my revenge over Chelsea and I knocked them out of the FA Cup in the 3rd round after a replay. I also had a massive 6-0 victory against Wigan Athletic and had another victory over Chelsea in the league with a 4-1 thrashing. With the likes of Danny Graham, Scott Sinclair, Angel Rangel and Gylfi Sigurðsson I only suffered 4 defeats and I won the FA Cup with a 3-2 victory over Liverpool with a late penalty by Gylfi Sigurðsson in extra time. So to sum up my season I finished 10th in the League and qualified for the Europa League after beating Liverpool in the FA Cup final. The season finished and I was offered jobs at teams such as: Stoke City, Newcastle United, Aston Villa and Athletic Club. But I was also offered a new two year contract extension at Swansea City and I decided to stay on as Swansea manager. Since I have spent over £30million on big name signings including: Rolando, Ben Arfa, Jonjo Shelvey and Adel Taraabt. I won my group in the Europa League and have qualified for the 1st Knockout Round, I am currently lying in 7th place in the League and I am in the FA Cup 4th round.
