Posted in tactics discussion as I thought this was where it would be looked for.
I have noticed a few people seem to be having trouble setting more than one player to 'Lurk Outside Area' in order to make a pretty effective set-piece play. There is probably a thread somewhere about this and I apologize if there is.
Feel free to use my corner tactic, I've scored 10 in 25 in the league and about 18 in 36 total in the season, a decent return - I explain what my set up attempts to do on page 56 of the Modern Warfare 442 thread (best performance I've had so far with a tactic).

From the main manager screen, select the tactic screen from the drop-down menu at the side of your team name.

This will obviously bring up your tactic screen like so:

From here select the subheading 'Players', this will be located slightly above the pitch on the right hand side.

You should be able to see the button labelled 'Show Instructions' in the picture above, click on that next to produce a list of instructions set for a specific player.

As you can see the screen now shows all the individual instructions set for Joe Hart including 'Corners' bottom middle. You can select other players by simply click their icon on the pitch or via the drop down menu.

To set your players to Lurk Outside Area, select whichever player you want to Lurk Outside Area and tick the box next to 'Attacking' under 'Corners'. This will allow you to access the drop down menu (jump up menu in this case I guess haha) and select the 'Lurk Outside Area' option.

If you already have a player set to Lurk Outside Area and it says '(Switch with ...)' don't worry. Changing your set piece instructions this way won't actually switch the players and will allow more than one to Lurk Outside Area. It is also possible to do this with any of the options, you could set all of your players to 'Attack Near Post' if you really wanted.

This is how I have my corners set:

I have tried to explain this as simple as possible and with as many pictures as I thought necessary for people who's first language is not English. Hopefully this has been helpful :)

Ummm, interesting. I'll try this one.
Its even more convenience because I'm currently using the Bossanova and Falcao tactics.
Thanks for the screenshot instructions. very helpful.

Btw mate, if you are still doing research for the corner tactic.
I would really suggest you to check on the Namzet tactic.
In my test, Khedira scored 22 goals in less than 30 league games.
Some told me its because the corner settings.

current one is doing great for me man.good job with it.
Maybe instead of attacking the far post in it though,put the second guy to stand there,since many of the headers from the near post seem to be cleared off the line before he gets there.
 
I'll look into it, always good to get some feed back and advice. No corner tactic has stood out this year so I'm hoping to find a winning solution.

who score the the goals then? the near post guy or someone lurking?
 
Mainly it is the CB at the near post. However the near post ST also steals a few and sometimes flicks on for the CB at the far post.
It isn't a fool proof exploit by any means but my mate is Chelsea in my online game and after I told him to change to my tactic he scored 7 in 4. A hat-trick of corners in his second game with 1 for each of the players in the box.
