I'm quite new the manager games and playing as my fav team port vale fc and need some help & tips on stopping my team conceding too many goals. This is my 2nd season as manager of vale as i finished mid table in league 2 last season. Now i'm 4th this season but my defence stinks big time, i've scored 66 goals but conceded 50. Only 2 teams in my league have let in more goals and thats bottom cheltenham I'm sure this game wants to pee me off as i got a few loans in and they get injured for months. and 4th bottom burton.I'm using 4-2-2-2 "Il Devasto tactic as its been the one i've tried and done sort of ok with.

Use your own tactic to try and plug the gap.

Or else use the Kevin Keegan school of thourgt (which I adhere to) you score 3 we'll score 4

Pull those two MC's back into DMC rather than the arrows. Boom, problem solved.

How and when are you conceding?
I found a lot of goals were deep crosses into the far post so give your full backs more defensive responsibilities?
Stop the cross and deal with the cross if applicable.
