    The Annihilator

    The Formation A 5-3-2 with attacking full backs, two attack minded centre mids and a deep lying playmaker to link defence to midfield with a false 9 and advanced forward upfront. The Philosophy Simple...attack! By holding a high defensive line, little space is given to the opposition...

    Just beat Man City away...but....

    Hey Guys, Playing as Man Utd and finally seem to have got my formations right (playing 5 3 1 1 which is 3cbs, 2 wbs, 3 cms, 1 amc & 1 st). I notice that I seem to be exposed to through balls and balls over the top when it comes to switching to my more controlling tactic when I'm leading in the...

    Hey guys. As you go through the game your reputation (if your successful) increases. I am never sure what clubs to apply for and which ones that I've no chance of getting (obvious things like being regional rep and applying for premier league isn't what I'm asking here)....should your rep match...

    Using the media to gain an advantage: Boring and tedious or essential?

    Since the new FM13 game came out I've been trying to improve the way I manage and go about my daily business. Its paid off so far as I have been able to be quite successful with whoever I've picked. One thing though that I've always steered clear of purely because I can't be bothered with it as...

    Next opposition scout reports and how to use them........?

    Having played the new game for a solid period of time and read various forums, I am starting to understand how the new game differs from previous version. My results and squad management have improved in response to the greater emphasis on morale in 2013. However, I think my biggest weakness...

    Can't set focus intensity in individual training on main screen

    Hey guys, Bit weird. I have players complaining about a high training workload so I click on the focus intensity in the main screen (see screenshot below) and for some reason when I change it, the blue selection bar will select on someone above and change their focus intensity level to the same...

    Blackburn 4-5-1 plenty of goals scored but conceding too much!

    Hey guys, Currently sitting in 6th place with Blackburn after 8 games.....15 goals for and 12 against.

    12 scouts......how to set up a good scouting network?

    Hi guys, Just wanted to know the best and most efficient way of setting up a scouting network with scouts? I usually have one scout on each region but this probably isn't the best way to do it surely? Any suggestions or websites that have information on this? Is it best to concentrate on...

    Understanding and interpreting the match engine....

    One of the biggest difficulties for me when playing the game is understanding how to adapt tactics for a particular opposition... Let me expand on this.... When I play FM I always use commentary with the match stats screen in front of me. Why? Because I just don't understand how to interpret...

    Community created tactic?

    With FM13 looming on the horizon I thought it might be an interesting idea to put our collective heads together to come up with a NON MATCH ENGINE EXPLOITING tactic. I know what your thinking, everyone has a different philosophy etc etc...but you can clearly see tactics created on here are...

    Christmas Tree 12.2.2

    Hey guys....firstly this isn't quite complete yet....I have tested it for 10 games and need to tighten up some aspects.
