  1. I can relate on the crossing front, the amount of crosses that don't make it in games is crazy, rarely make it past the first man. I find I have a load of shots form the edge of the area, teams sit really dip no matter what I try
  2. Yeah I find my play naturally ends up wide, the frustrating thing is i cant find a role for my ST that gets him enough goals, DLF (a) works okay but he cant himself back into the box quick enough. Whilst I don't mind wing play/crosses, its frustrating how many don't make into the box.
  3. Thanks for that, i'll try it out. 1 thing both tactics struggle with is players hitting the target, i'll have 13-16 shots a game but sometimes only 2 or 3 of those will be on target
  4. haha I do have a 4-2-3-1, its more to maybe get Payet in the team and I don't feel as though its as sound either defensively or going forward In regards to the 4-1-2-3, I've thought about using an Inside Forward either side and maybe a DLF (A) I wast just concerned of the players crowding each other out.
  5. I've never once posted a tactic on this forum, although I do like to lurk a lot! My current tactic is as above, I like to try and play a possession based game but I struggle to get my 3 attacking players into the game, sure they have the odd game, they'll score 2 or assist but more often than not my striker, whoever it may be, is playing a 6.2-6.4
  6. Hi guys, its been a while since I posted anywhere on this forum! I've decided to take the reigns at Coventry. Decent squad overall but near on impossible to make any real improvements in the transfer window. Willis and Chaplin look like real gems and I did manage to squeeze in 2 loans, Matt Butcher from Bournemouth and Marcelo Djalo from Fulham. We currently lie 2nd after 18 games in the League, trailing Barnsley by a couple of points. Hopefully we continue the good form and secure a return to the Championship
  7. I'm in my second season with Villa, won the Championship and, somehow, the FA Cup last year. Beat Burnley and Spurs on the way, then 2 late goals gave us a 2-1 win over City. Memorable to say the least! Main signings for season 2 were Sessengon, Mitrovic and Loftus Cheek. Sitting pretty in the league around 5th for a while, but three consecutive away games, City, Liverpool and Southampton have seen us lose 3 times and we've slid to 9th. Also the Europa League has been a burden, we qualified 2nd in the group but the squad is too light to deal with that competition whilst trying to remain competitive for the European slots in the league. Just in Jan now but with little funds can't see me improving what I have now until the summer. Having said all that, Celta Vigo are sniffing and I may move on haha
  8. Always followed and used your tactics Rosler - it's a shame to know you won't be getting into it this year! I am excited to see where this goes however - and applying it to my own game, when and where possible! It's good to be back ha
  9. Yep thats what I want, for Mitro to be the main goal threat. Which side would you tihnk the SS should be, my Mez (A) is right and the BBM is left
  10. I'm using something very similar in my first PL season with Villa - main difference formation wise is I play a lone striker (Mitrovic) with a Shadow Striker (RLC) behind. I'm winning games and keeping clean sheets, but I cant really get the two I mentioned to perform - any ideas?
  11. Polish side Gornik, looks decent mate. B2B. Yeah I did get Xadas, again I hope the Championship can bring out the best in him ready for next year. Grealish has been decent for me as behind the striker. Abraham btw, immense so far, hit 4 last game
  12. I noticed, I'm trying to improve his positioning at the minute, signed Marin and Zurkowski also - two decent prospects should get enough game time in the Championship to improve ready for the PL
  13. Yep already had issues - Chester has left for Palace, could't really get no one of quality in. Managed to sign a Dutch fella Douglas on a free at CB, but hes just been injured for 7 weeks! Max Broughton from Bolton but hes 16 - looks a real prospect though and only cost me 500k
