  1. I'm currently in the year 2035, i started with Oldham Athletic, after taking them to the Prem and winning the FA cup and league Cup i left to take charge of Tottenham. After 10 years in the role and 9 premier league titles, 4 Champions league titles and numerous cup wins. I left for Barcelona, once again i dominated and won numerous La liga titles, cup wins and numerous champs league titles. I climbed my way to the top of the hall of fame. I was getting a bit bored and thought rather than start a new game, i will resig from my position and apply for a job at a lower league club. So i joined QPR who were in league 1 at the time. After gaining promotion to the championship and sitting in the play off's i got fired due to me leaking to the press that the board wouldn't increase my transfer budget. Fair enough i thought, so i waited around and started applying for some top jobs. However whenever i apply for a top club so far i've tried Bayern Munich, Man City etc. I get laughed off and i don't even get an interview. In fact the only jobs that offer me an interview are lower championship teams or below. I'm still listed as World class but it seems the game has forgotten my past achievements. Surely this is a bug, it's kingof annoying.
  2. It would only use one so for example in the playmaker drop down box if you had your DMC at the top and your MC below him, the DMC would be the playmaker. However if you substitute the DMC later in the game your MC would automatically become the playmaker.
  3. You might want to turn forward runs of your full backs down to mixed as it will tighten it up a bit that is the formation that won the league 1 with Oldham.
  4. For those playing as a weaker team and struggling with the control tactic, in my Oldham game which i won the league, it was pretty much the same control tactic except the full backs had forward runs on mixed. However in my City game because i have a better team i wasn't creating as many chances as i should so i put them on often and started to have good success. If your a small team with poor full backs you might be best on reducing the forward runs on your full backs to mixed.
  5. Are these the V2 tactics, and which are you using the control, home or both?
  6. Play your big striker in the FCR slot, remove swap positions with the other striker, if he has good strength ask him to hold up ball, and play through balls often.
  7. The download links are in the post above yours and have also been added to opening post.
  8. Ok here goes two new tactics control V2 and a home V2 same as before the control away from home unless big favourites and the home at home unless big underdogs. I'll leave a couple of screenshots of league positions i achieved please note that during my Man City season especially many tweaks were made to the control V2 tactic and the control V2 is slightly different to that, that won the league with Oldham. I find it plays similar to the last control and the player requirements are the same. Funnily enough i didn't stumble on the most notable difference to alter the control tactic until around 10 games to go of my Man City season. Finally the download links http://files.filefront.com/SeXy+FoOtBaLl+Control+V2+9tac/;13439500;/fileinfo.html http://files.filefront.com/SeXy+FoOtBaLL+Home+V2+Man9tac/;13439501;/fileinfo.html Thanks for your patience while i was developing the tactics and please leave feedback in the thread. Finally i'd like to say thanks to Bobmufc who had a great input into both the tactics as we shared opinions over email and feedback on how the tactics held up.
  9. Sorry i've not posted on here for a while, i've been bust trying to resolve the tactical issues mainly the control as that seems to been affected most by the new patch. I'd finished a season with Oldham Athletic and won the league having pretty good success with a tweaked control that i made. However in some games it fell apart and at times i scraped victories that to be honest felt like a defeat. However i felt the base was right. I've nearly finished my Man City season i finished 2nd in the league won the UEFA cup and i'm in the final of the FA cup, i've been tweaking the control from that, that i used with Oldham to win League 1 as it's not creating enough chances and in some games gets dominated to much. I feel it's pretty much ready for release, i'd tweaked that many variations of the control tactic during my Man City save it's pretty hard for me to establish if i think this is as good as the control that worked on 9.2 or better. I'm also going to release a version 2 of my home tactic. However for those still enjoying success with the original home tactic you may just want to try the control tactic.
  10. Yeah Bob send me your tweaked version email address is pointon27@hotmail.com
  11. To give it more control and be abit more patient in the build up,as with my Roma game team we're parking the bus and i was struggling to break them down. It was down to the success i had over the last few seasons but if i hadn't enjoyed the success i had and teams wasn't so defensive i dont think i'd of needed to change it.
