I'm quite ned at the manager games and i've been trying to play using my fav team port vale but with no luck. I'm beaten most times and my players are always unhappy. Has anyone got a good tactic for vale as i'm pulling what hair i have out with frustration.

No matter what tactic i try they are just as useless as a chocolate fireguard.

Mate,use a tactic for at least ten games before you judge results. Also use motivational Team talks. I always tend to say I expect a win or for the fans at the start. At half time say encourage,pleased or i expect more from you. Its all about keeping the players happy and they will play better.
May i suggest JP Woodys high scoring tactic? It tends to do well in the lower leagues.

why dont you learn the ropes at a top/easy club and then take on port vale
teams like man city, Barcalona are easy to manage

Ya thats using your tactic, I'm not very good at all at this but i wanna stick with it. I know i could pick a big team but because i'm a vale fan i want to play as my fave team.

Have you tried the Ghost tactic or JP Woodys high scoring one?

Well i was sacked with 36 games played and 4th from bottom of league 2 with my port vale fc. I'm struggleing to master this mad game but i won't give up so i've started again. I don't want to be anyone else but vale so i've decided to go with JP Woody High Scoring tactic, i'm not losing as many but still not scoring enough. If i go behind i will lose, on the tactic is says a new goalkeeper is a must but i can't get anyone to come due to no funds and i need a good ball winning medfielder but again no funds so what can i do. Whats done my head in is i lost 3 of my best players through injury in pre season. Any help will be helpful.

There is a Liverpool 4-4-1-1 formation which you can download on here whoich would probably suit your Vale players if you are still in the first or second season...
