Cause they play more defensive and tactical football. Maybe try and play more careful or counter attacking football?

Well look at how Jose Mourinho and Fabio Capello get teams to play they have them play defensively then counter when the other team is on the back hand of the attack from the opposition :p

I've had a lot of success with Milan in Italy, but the first season with them is hard, the team is a state. Fiorentina have a cracking team though. I've just started a game with Lazio, first time I've been them, and I'm doing well, about to play Fiorentina actually :D

Where are you at the moment ?
i finished 7th :(

TomJDavies: I find that Giladino just doesnt score enough but i play a 4 2 3 1 so maybe hes not good by himself up front.

KidSparxx: i would love to try your tactic if you would like me to, the season just finished so i can buy players to suit it if need be too

No Gilardino isn't good enough on his own I don't think, however with someone next to him, he should bang the goals in. Montolivo is key for the Viola, get him down as playmaker. Just drew 0-0 at Fiorentina, very pleased with the result!

Also - I've never played rigid tactics in Italy, always fluid and attacking, and I've done well.

i play simon vukcevic as my play maker :)

TomJDavies: Im playing a nice balanced attacking game that worked wonders at CSKA Middlesbrough and Sevilla, i might sell Gilla and but Dzeko maybe

Its not complete, im still trying to sort out the midfield roles but its solid defensively and good in attack. Gilardino should do well in this as well cause ive got Pazzini playing in the ST position and theyre quite similar.

4-4-2 diamond with Fiorentina worked wonders for me! Gila as a complete forward, have a battling midfield (Donadel, Annan, Blasi etc) Montolivo/Jovetic as AMC and sell the wingers for a shed load of cash!
Frey, Dainelli and Gamberini are solid!
