Had something similar with Lille.. In 11 games conceeded 23 goals (scored 32), which was as much as the previous season in total. So weird when I saw your screenshot of Hearts. But I'm confident you will find a solution!

The main problem is that i conceeding almost every goal chance against me, even if i have a great defence! You always create a lot, but against top teams away you have no chance! Thank MR Hough, i would be using your 4-1-2-2-1 tactic until the next tactic is out :)

Sorry i didnt keep any screenshots of my disaster earlier but the side i took over had just missed out on the play offs the previous season so thought they'd be an ideal team to test it on . i'd kept the Cena v the rock tact as me second system so swapped across . First game was a 1-0 defeat to League leaders , next a 2-2 with 3rd then a 4 match unbeaten run so team wasnt a bad side .

Started a new game now using Cena v the rock and still working a treat but will keep an eye out for any developments you make Mr Hough , keep the faith , i do

I think I may have figured out the main problem. I think its the midfield. If your DM and CM aren't of a good enough quality teams are over running the defenders. Im not 100% but I think it could be the reason.

Has anyone used the 4-1-2-2-1 without the corner exploit?

Yes I set corners to mixed and still scored over 120 goals in the epl with Chelsea. And nobody even attacks anything but the near post so like 60 percent of my corners were useless.

Take Care :) The 4-1-2-2-1 tactic is brilliant so we have nothing to complain about

Would anyone class this as a plug in play, the 4-1-2-2-1?

Really struggling to find a good tactic to use for a journeyman save; while not using the corner expliot :)

I used the 4-1-2-2-1 as a plug and play tactic for one season as a test and had a lot of success as have many others as you can see in the screenshots in previous posts within this thread. I would think the 4-1-2-2-1 would work well without the current corner setup, but I haven't tried it with corners setup any other way. When I used the tactic I did score quite a few goals via corners.

There are several quality 4-4-2's available in this forum as well as other tactics with 1 striker so there are plenty of effective tactics available at this point.

Got to CL quarter final, where I lost to Porto (0:2, 0:0). It's still a tremendous success, but I'm thinking that if both of my good AMLs weren't injured, I'd have put up a better fight.

I'm probably going to holiday the rest of season, since I won the league a while ago. Yeah, a little after half of the season. 25 games, 24 wins, 1 draw, 0 losses. 97 scored, 6 conceded.

Quality job Hough.

I read something yesterday night about using the old 4-1-2-3 created by Mr Hough. I can't find this post any more.

I wanted to confirm, it's absolutely fabulous to use with the 12.2.2.

I've tested it with Lyon, Nantes, Juventus, Marseille and Dortmund. I had only big, big wins.

My results after it are kind of bad, most of my players were injured/tired. I lost in 1/2 finals of CL against Real Madrid. I also won Ligue 1.

Yea, for some reason the post about "Mr Hough Rolls Back the Years" was deleted. Not sure why as it was an informative post.

Testing it now. So far played 4: won 3, drew 1.

Yes, i'm still using Cena vs Rock (Cena Wins), with team from Polish Ekstraklasa, with very good results.

http://fotoo.pl/show.php/208470_legia.jpg.html

I've won Polish Supercup, Polish League, and reached Champions League semi-final. Eech team in CL, which played at Pepsi Arena, had lost in Warsaw :) My salaries per annum level is only about 4 mln euros.

No prob,, i don't use any OI's, and match preparation is set on "defensive positioning" with workload level "average". In the middle of the field i'm also using more ball winners with good passing skill, than offensive playmakers with high flair or dribbling, for example : Vrdoljak, Borysiuk, Gol triangle in Legia Warsaw.

Okay, Well I also think it's logical to 'man-mark' the opposing full-backs with my Wingers when playing tough Opposition....

Also, one thing about defending. In original version, marking for two central defenders is probably set on "man marking". Mr Hough have mentioned that for weaker teams more suitable would be "zonal". That helps me a lot, and gives more stability at the back. So finally, defenders have zonal marking, and defensive midfield triangle is set on "man".

Hi Mr. Hough great tactic the new one. But wanted to know if you tweek something when the AI starts spooting the tactic.

Thanks and keep the good work.

What i have been doing over the past few days is taking my 4-1-2-2-1 Cena wins tactic and using that compeltly as a base, Moving the players positions around so it becomes say and 4-1-2-1-2 or a 4-3-1-2. Just seeing how effective the tactic is in different formations.

The effectiveness goes down massivly when you change the formation on the 4-1-2-2-1 tactic.

I actually think that this 4-1-2-2-1 will be the best tactic i release on the 12.2 patch as the match engine's defence is really hard to combat.
