    Set Piece Problem

    I have had the same problem for ages and i have reported this in the bugs forum where no one replied. I have just lived with it now... shame really.

    Does anyone know the answer to my question?

    Carillero

    @Cleon How would a Carrilero act if you only have a winger on attack in the MR position and no full backs on the same wing? I am trying to work out how best to defend that flank by either using a Carrilero in the MCR position or maybe a DM or BWM in the DMR postion instead.
  5. As far as I know if you move the U19s into the first team they get coached by the senior coaches but will happily be corrected if wrong.
  6. What is the best combination to hold on to a one goal advantage... Contain and very fluid or Contain and structured? Basically which if the two is more defensive? Thanks
  7. I am playing as Werder Bremen in Germany and i have my corners aimed to the near post and penalty area but 98% of the time my corners go to the player on the edge of the box. Is this a known bug? Thanks
  8. If I play with 2 defensive midfielders in the DM slot how would a half back work? E.g. does he still drop between the two CB.
  9. Funny you should mention 4132 on standard because that is what I adopted against Arsenal at home and for the first time I have had more shots than them (only by two!) and it finished 1-1. I followed WITW's advise and a few other tips from this thread. Lets see how I get on playing the others as Arsenal are lying 6th, so not their best season so far!
  10. I understand what you mean but in my second season I have managed to sign M.Carrick, S.Gerrard and J.Clasie (feynoord), so they are all technically good players but become useless when playing against a top six team.
  11. This is where I am at a loss, everytime I play the top six ALL my players automatically can't pass a ball 5 yards, can't dribble and have the worst first touch in footballing history. I have tried analysing like I do for the other teams in the league but my players suddenly go from premiership quality to conference level just cause they are playing a big team and it affects all the player, so it hard to work out what's wrong as when I play the other teams I can see what needs changing or spot mine or an oppositions weakness.
  12. I did start off like that but after the first season when I was losing 3/4/5 - nils that I had to change. The second season I have managed a couple of lucky draws at home but still getting smashed quite easily. Like I said before I know they are the top six, so I don't expect it to be easy but I thought I would of managed one close game where I got more than 5 or 6 shots at goal to their 30.
  13. Thanks for this I will give it a try. Nice to know i am not the only one having this issue. I had visited the tactics forum but was under the impression that playing counter or defensive invites too much pressure from the bigger teams.
  14. I will normally play counter as where I normally start with standard and move up to control. Everything I keep the same. I know they are the top six and I don't expect just to beat them but compared to other FM's it seems harder just to scrape a draw. The premiership is the most competitive league in Europe and as with palace beating Man City the other day as an example.
