I want a tactic where my wingers stay our wide and just run/dribble down the flanks and cross in to my big striker.
Now I set them up with
Run with ball, cross often, from byline, stick to touchline, throughballs - rare, forward runs - rare.
The end result was that my wingers would constantly run/cut in side ffs.
Also, I have watched 10 games and I can't seem to get my players to stick to individual tactical instructions, like I select play the ball to the wings, but they just don't bother. My midfielders seem to just get the ball, turn back towards my keepers and do a shuffle, lose the ball?
My full backs, never get forward even though I ask them to attack and run with ball (they don't) they seem to run the ball out of play instead.
So after 10 games watching every match this week, with Leeds Utd - I get the sack.
My question is, because on FM13 Leeds pretty much have a new entire team, did my tinkering have an adverse effect on the team? Should I just leave the tactics on default for 6months so the players can blend together a bit? How long before tactical instructions actually work? Do they actually do anything or are my players too dumb to understand basic instructions?
My tactic was as follows
Also, my goalkeeper is set to quick throws but constantly boots the ball up field
