This tactic is great,i like thousands of others have litterally pulled my hair out trying different formations and teams and getting beat all the time
I always start at the bottom,you would in real life football and so i always go with a lower league team.
I finished second with Rochdale using v4 and using simple tweaks at the start of games following the scouts advice.
I have bought 6 players in on free transfers because my squad was paper thin but with the exception of Kevin James,on a free from Forest,the team is the same i inherited.
Thr essential player is the big target man,i had Mourike Sako,he was top class,good strength,jumping and heading.
Big strong Sako
