the title describes nearly every seasons form for my team

start of the season im woeful, losing at home to teams tipped for relegation

middle of the season i wont be beaten for a twelve game stretch

end of the season i fall to pieces

does anyone else experience this?

is there something anyone can suggest to address it?

even when i change to a defence minded formation in my bad patches its like my players just dont know what to do

and i follow folwfs teamtalks so im not sure its those that are to blame

Make sure your players are fit at the start of the season, and rotate them so they don't get tired for the end of the season.

yeah i rotate and keep everyone fit

the problem seems to be more mental than anything

yet i make a point of signing determined players and having experienced players in defence and in goal etc

its a puzzler

Do you rotate your defence. If so that could be part of the problem.

never the centre backs, if ive got a fairly aging wing back i might rest him one in four games

I get the same problem, barely get a point in aug and begining of sep, go through to xmas losing only another 2 games, and tail off by apr.

Its not a fitness thing as they are often fitter when they are losing!

it has to be a mental thing, confidence maybe.

I get this. But then I dont change to suit the weather.

My slick short pass counter attacks are a misery in the wet muddy fields of Wales but its the way I like to play.

Could be either team understanding or the AI changing it's assesment of your teams threat level

fitness/weather's already been covered.

but it could also be a combination of 2+ of the above things.

This happened to me at QPR. Started off averagely (not badly, just drew a lot of games), then made a mid-season charge to 4th in the table.

Only needed a win from the last two games to get a playoff place, against a mid-to-low-table team, and yes, you guessed it, lost, and ended up 9th (!).

I took it as the computer screwing me out of a play-off place but if tiredness is a factor all the time then fair enough. I wouldn't mind but I did rotate the majority of my squad.
