right, will im playing as tranmere rovers on fm 2011 handheld for itouch. iv tried the 442 attacking tactic and although i did get pleasing results pre season against opposition higher than me, since the season start iv had mostly draws and losses.

currently im useing a 41212 formation.


i(the computer) puts these players in.

gk - j Walker

def - z Bakayogo , m Broomes ,n Wood, j DeMerit

dmc - j Welsh

mc - j Spearing , p McLaren

amc - i Thomas-Moore

fc - e Showunmi , s Morrow

subs

a Taylor, j Collister, m Power , a Mahon , Cathlina, d Jennings , i Goodison , a Cresswell


so yea the 442 attacking tactic doesnt work, normal 443 doesnt, and 41212 kinda works.

i'm crawley town at the mo, in my fourth season, in league 1. i started with 442 attacking in blue square bet, it worked fine, i won most of the matches (ended up as league winners). thats probably cuz i had 2 pacey wide men who were my best players.

got into league 2, then i waz like u, except i tried 433 and that worked fine - basically i put my wide men out of position i.e up front, they played decent. as u go higher up the leagues the quality of opponents do get better so i thought lets pack the midfield.

the tactics do matter as well. i set mine to balanced mentality, short passing, commited tackling, pressing on, offside trap off, counter attack off, men behind ball off.
