Well, for that kind of tactic u are using, avoid using high, not-fast strikers. You know what i am talking about. Jan Koller' s type. Only use a player of that tipe when you are pressing a lot, a can only reach the area with long balls, like crosses. You should really hook up a good striker, technically gifted, fast and of course, with a good shot. Check out Javier Saviola's stats to know what i am talking about. Even Arshavin can do this if you are not in the mood to spend a lot of money in a player like that. Use him as one of your 2 forwards, and make sure u give him specific instructions for that role. Like a number 10, a fake-forward..Like pablo Aimar played on Valencia..

Well, set him to a backwards movement, with the arrow thingy, and set is player instructions to preset Attacking Midfielder. And let me know if it worked
